Instead of doing a full preview, MetaNorn did a "Picks" post.
UPDATE: My current plan is one ep each of Onigiri, Netoge no Yome etc., Pan de Peace, and Hai-Furi, and then hope at least something good pops out.
UPDATE: Maybe I'll add Wagamama High Spec to that list. At least it looks like it might be a source of cheap thrills, what with all the main girls being top heavy.
UPDATE: So I guess my schedule is:
Pan de Peace Mon 4/4
Onigiri Wed 4/6
Netoge Thu 4/7
Hai-Furi Sat 4/9
Wagamama High Spec Mon 4/11

The electorate is furious. It's furious with Washington, Wall Street, hedge funds, big banks, lobbyists, fat cats in corner offices—all of them cutting special deals for themselves while average folks are left out. Voters know their real incomes are down. They know their retirements are in jeopardy, their kids are loaded with college debt, and everybody is looking at a tough job market. We are not in a recession, mind you, and employment is actually growing. No matter. All across the country, voters are saying, "We're mad as hell and we aren't gonna take it anymore.” That's why the most damning indictment this year is to be called an "establishment candidate.” The second most damning is to receive Mitt Romney's endorsement. If there was a ballot option for "tar-and-feather the lousy SOBs,” it would win in a landslide.

Don points to an idiotic advertisement in the Hollywood Reporter which essentially advocates censorship. Even though I don't smoke and have no intention of starting and don't want kids to smoke, I don't think censorship is the answer. Censorship is a bad thing.
Apparently censorship of movies is a big thing in the UK, and a guy named Charlie Lyne got tired of it. The BBFC (the censors) have committed to watching every minute of every film submitted to them, so Lyne raised about 6000 pounds with a kickstarter to create a 10 hour movie of paint drying. Which he has now submitted for certification.
This, of course, is a truly masterful troll.

UPDATE: They say that Oshiete! Galko-chan is a short. That makes a lot more sense; it's a really threadbare concept for full-length episodes.

He says that "Kono Subarashii Sekai and so on" (Wed, Jan 13) is about panty shots and gainaxing. The skirts do seem criminally short on the one with blue hair. Maybe I should give it a one-episode look-see. It could be worth following, with the sound turned off and the subtitles disabled -- especially if it runs on AT-X.

Bill Irwin is a very talented man. He graduated from Clown College, and was one of the performers who became known as the "New Vaudevillians" along with Avner the Eccentric and The Flying Karamazov brothers, among others.
In 1982 he created a stage performance called "The Regard of Flight" and I videotaped it when it was broadcast on PBS's "Great Performances". I can't tell you how many times I watched it, but every time I did I laughed a lot. It's difficult to describe, nor would I describe it even if I could -- for much of the humor comes from the unexpected. But it's probably been 25 years since the last time, and even so I've never forgotten it.
It occurred to me this afternoon that someone might have posted it to Youtube so I took a look, and there it was! It's 45 minutes and you will not regret watching it!
