Hi, we missed you guys, even if you didn’t miss us! This bi-month (aka this 4x 4tnight) on Fast Karate for the Gentleman, we waste a lot of time on semantics (isn’t it funny how human nature compels you to be bitchy about people correcting people while ignoring the plank in your own eye about the things that bother you that you correct people about? haha hypocrisy am I right. anyway I’m sorry for being such a pill about “initialism” when I’ve probably acted like a prick about some other figure of speech in much the same way. ultimately, as you grow, I believe it’s important to divest yourself of these minor annoyances as much as possible and just let be–life ain’t an AP English placement test, they’re not hurting anyone–i speak from experience in saying that, ultimately, you will have a happier, more productive life the less play you give to your inconsequential annoyances), Joel relates his harrowing escape from the Cult of MOBA, and we indulge in some brief speculation to Wyclef’s [probable] use of Sangfroid before finally settling into our proper topic, a semi-spoiler, praise-suffused Ode to a Grecian Ori and the Blind Forest.

(bonus tangent: Conan & The Riddle of Cheese)

    Well I missed you! On the plus, in the empty time I’ve listened to a large amount of your past anime shows. fair trade off?

    Don’t pull those when/if-shenanigans on me, Dave. The past year of waiting for new Fast Karate episodes is just a good exercise in waiting for the werewolf-YA and fantasy novel. Anyway, enough fan-boying, just glad to see you guys bring out a long awaited, fun episode.

      Thanks! Believe me I’m not doing it to be a tease. :D I’d like nothing more than to just get one of these books out into the world, and I hate being all like “please look forward to it~~~~” and other coy writerly stuff. But, as I’m learning, the publisher grinding mill is both harsh and eternal, so all I can do is work hard and keep the faith.

  • I looked bugaboo up in the “dictionary” and I found this definition:

    ’cause You A Bug A Boo

    You Buggin What You Buggin Who You Buggin Me

    And Don’t You See It Ain’t Cool

      Well, it’s official.

      I should’ve consulted my dog-eared copy of the Knowles-Rowland English Dictionary, but I was waiting for the Second Edition to drop. D:
