FanaticSpace Podcast Episode 003

FanaticSpace Podcast
Pat can’t make it for this episode, her family is going through a difficult time right now. If you believe in prayer, positive vizualization or anything like that, please keep them in your thoughts.

You might notice that we have art for the podcast now (the image in this post). If I’ve done things correctly, it should also be the album art for the podcast on iTunes.

Looking at The Last Airbender

The Last Airbender
Note: No real spoilers contained

As a person of mixed racial descent, I have this to say:  Don’t let ignorant race baiting prevent you from going to see The Last Airbender or overshadow your enjoyment of the film.  It’s a magical fable of balance and imbalance, harmony and disharmony, action and consequence, power and loss, innocence and character growth.  It transcends racial and gender stereotypes, but only if you let it.  If you can’t recapture your youth and suspend your disbelief, borrow a kid and see it through new eyes.

Update: Only the first 2 episodes will be available to registered members. To see the rest of the episodes you’ll have to pay.

Sounds of The Last Airbender



Aang, the Avatar

Unlike many movie soundtracks, James Newton Howard’s, The Last Airbender soundtrack stands alone.

Just because the guy has scored a few films (well, a few more than 100, and all of M. Night Shyamalan’s   films), has a few Oscar nominations (okay, he has eight of them),  is classically trained as well as pop & rock n’ roll credentialed…well just because of all of that, doesn’t mean that I would like this soundtrack!  Yeah, who does this guy think he is, anyway?  Time for a close encounter with a potential audience member:

Fairy Tail Anime On Crunchyroll?

(Editor’s Note: For those of you unfamiliar with Fairy Tail, the story follows a rough and tumble wizards Guild that seems to have a habit of getting into trouble. They’ll save the day, but with plenty of destruction along the way. The manga art bears a strong resemblance to One Piece)
