RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!
-Yoshiyuki Tomino going post-modern?
-Funimation catches the Sushi Typhoon
-And June’s Best In Tune Special, OMEGA!!

All that, and the best fan-reaction ever in this week’s Friday ACE!

SHOW NOTES:
Mike here. Let me just say that Murphy’s Law is the fine print of podcasting. This episode’s production was proof of it! As I’m entirely wiped out, some quick notes in lieu of an actual message:

-For the unaware, the the head-desk break came from last week’s episode, set to the tune of Il Travatore. If you watched cartoons at any point in your life, you may know it as the Anvil Chorus.

-The little bit in the beginning comes from a moment in British quiz show QI in which Alan Davies recalls a song from a local band about Hammer Horror icon, Peter Cushing. See the moment for yourself here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SdTLxyS2bdU

-The song at the end was the opening theme to the 1980’s TV Series, Cybercops, which is what apparently brought together Patrick Macias and Daryl Surat. Or so I’m told.

-And no fanboys were harmed during the making of this episode.

That’s it for now. Until the next, drop me a line at fridayace.ousa@gmail.com, spread the word, and take care!
