Hey everyone! As the title suggests, there's no trailer discussion this week. I only had three come down the pipeline anyway and that wasn't really enough to make Vol. 3. I am, however, out of town right now and will be seeing Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in about two hours. So instead expect a review for that either tonight or tomorrow, depending on when we get home. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
Hey Machiners, I am writing to let you all know that I have decided to end the 12 day of anime series. There are a couple reasons I decided on this. First I have some real bad weather rolling in for the weekend here and already I am in a great deal of pain because of it. The Bulging disc in my back combined with my normal weather related back issues is causing me no ends of trouble and I am having trouble thinking creatively in my current condition and my foot that I had surgery on hurts a bit tonight also!
Additionally I can see that the interest in these posts are just not there. No real interaction with Any of my Anime Talk posts in the last couple months, which is discouraging and makes me think that the small community of anime fans we used to have here have moved on to other things. I may still post a few anime related articles over the next several days, but I will not be continuing the 12 day commitment.
Tied for 2nd place: JR19759 and hawk007.
And taking 1st place with a trip to the HMHofF is Kellkin.
Congratulations and thanks to all who entered.
Well Jr's Hero Of The Year Post today reminded me that it is also time for our annual HeroMachine Hall Of Fame nominations! So here is what I want you to do. In the comments below I would like you to nominate a pieces of Heromachine, and HEROMACHINE ONLY artwork from any creator anywhere on the internet so long as 1) The individual has not been banned from this site, 2) The Heromachine artist knows about the nomination and does not object to his/her artwork being used here. & 3) as noted above the artwork is created 100% inside heromachine with no editing other then basic cropping.
I would prefer you nominate other peoples artwork but you are not forbidden from nominating yourself if you are so inclined. Also there are no limitation on the number of nomination you can make but I do ask you try and keep them to a minimum so I don't need to create a 100 entry poll!
I wanted to do something different, so today I wanna talk about cover songs. Cover songs come in all shapes and flavors, often crossing, blurring, and outright stepping over lines of genre and style. Like any other type of song, they also run the gamut from excellent to atrocious. We’re going to do the former this time around, and save the latter for another time. I’ve actually been really lucky to hear so many good covers, but I want to talk here about the best of the best, the ones that really stand out. To make this list, they had to be at least on par or better than the originals. I’m also limiting to one per band, as some artists do enough covers that they could make a list to themselves. So without further ado, let’s get to it!

Just a quickie post today too share with you all the first official trailer for the live action adaptation of the Anime Ghost In The Shell staring Scarlet Johanson.
In the course of this testing I'm realizing how long it's been since I drew anything. Good lord.
On this edition of Kaldath's Corner I am going to write about something I have been longing to review since August but various things not the least of which being my illness had kept me from doing. Today I review that "10th Anniversary Festival" concert by my most favorite band on the planet, the J-Rock group SCANDAL.
Your challenge this week is to design the second member of the ILJ: Britannia
Britannia aka Sarah Hirst, is from Manchester, England and teamed up with Major Patriot in late 1941, following the attack on Pearl Harbour. While she has no superpowers to speak of, she is an expert markswoman and tracker.
Rules for posts, contests, and challenges: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warning. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.
All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShack, PhotoBucket, or whatever);
- Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
- Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this).
This contest will close on Sunday, November 13th at 9:00am Eastern.
Homourable mention goes to Kellkin for this creepy character.
And the win this week goes to hawk007 for this zombie entry.
Well done you, and thanks to all who entered.
