New Diablo Archer - Everyday Hero/Super Ordinary

(Rocky Mount, NC; March 31, 2009): Devil's Advocate Music announced today the April 21st release of Diablo Archer’s LIFT: The Rise and Fall of Diablo Archer. At press time, the 13 track project is slated to be available through several online retailers, including iTunes, Rhapsody, and emusic, as well as several independent music stores.

"It’s so fly it’s flight” explains Diablo Archer, “Icarus Complex was the foreword, but LIFT really fleshes out the story.” LIFT features production from J Manifest Wiggins (ME Music Works), MIDIMarc (Angry Chimp Music Group), A Dot McCray, The Jake, Rob Monster, Blunt, and Rockwell.

Diablo Archer, who most recently released part one of his Icarus Series, Icarus Complex, opted for only one guest appearance on LIFT, a verse from rapper K-Hill (Kick-a-Verse Media Group). Archer says of the decision, “The project was crafted as a continuous listening experience, and I didn’t want to interrupt that.”

Devil’s Advocate Music, established in 2004, is an independent imprint with a passion for truth in music. With four extremely well-received releases to its credit, the company’s continuing mission is to release quality material to a deserving consumer base.

Plot summary
See also: List of Genshiken chapters

Genshiken follows the lives of a group of college students drawn together by their shared hobbies, and the trials and adventures associated with being otaku. The story begins with the introduction of Kanji Sasahara, a shy, confidence-lacking freshman who on club day at university, decides to join a club he would actually enjoy, Genshiken. Over his four years at Shiiou University, Sasahara comes to accept himself for who he is and loses the inhibitions and guilt he once felt and associated with otaku culture, becoming an enthusiastic clubmember, and for a time, a capable club president. As the story of Genshiken progresses, focus is also placed on Saki Kasukabe, a determined non-otaku who initially struggles to drag her boyfriend out of the club, and Chika Ogiue, a self-professed otaku-hater who feels a deep-seated shame and self-loathing toward her own interests and hobbies.

During the course of the series, the reader bears witness as the group grows in its cohesiveness over time, and bonds form between the characters as they begin to see themselves as more than fellow club members, but friends as well. In this context, club activities such as group outings, the biannual pilgrimage to Comifes, and even simply hanging out in the clubroom, allow the characters' complex relationships to grow into friendship, infatuation, and at times, even love. While a few of them never quite see eye-to-eye about their interests or the lives they lead, they are held together by the bonds of friendship that they share.

I'm not a HUGE fan of anime & manga, but being japanese, i'm naturally drawn to some of this ish. This is one of the best manga's i've ever read and the anime for it is even better.

If you fit into the fan-boy category, I'd definitely suggest checking this out, just to see how the other side does it. I lived in Japan for about 6 years and this manga is very realistic.

Here's the opening sequence for the Genshiken anime:

Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life

Any book that is about to become a movie, I must I finally gave into the pressure and ordered this over Only a few pages in, but I'm already enjoying it.

Why Playing Scott Pilgrim Might Save Michael Cera's Career

3/19/08 at 10:45 AM

Like everyone else between the ages of 18 and 35, we are not immune to the charms of Michael Cera. His halting delivery, his bashful good humor, his short shorts, his self-deprecation; we find the whole package just as charming as you do. Nonetheless, we were starting to get a little worried about Cera recently. He plays the stunted boy-man so well; would he ever be able to play anything else? Or is he doomed to a career of diminishing returns, playing high schoolers well into his forties?

That's why we're so glad that Cera is in talks to play the hero of Bryan Lee O'Malley's pop-manga series, Scott Pilgrim.

It's not that Scott Pilgrim is an enormous departure from the characters Cera's been playing. He's not, like, a rogue cop tracking a killer through the mean streets of San Luis Obispo. But he is a character who will make Cera take his trademark acting style somewhere new, and for the first time suggests a credible adult version of Michael Cera.

Scott Pilgrim, as written by O'Malley, is no wallflower. Instead he's a sweet but headstrong alpha doofus, a guy given to pronouncements of his own awesomeness, long bass solos, clueless declarations of desire, and ridiculous emotional self-torture. Which is to say, he's big in a way that Cera hasn't been forced to play before.

For example, we're excited to see Cera confidently juggling two girls, not haltingly trying to talk to one. We're excited to see Cera rocking out — not strumming Moldy Peaches songs on acoustic guitar but shouting "We are Sex Bob-omb!" and launching into loud incompetent indie rock. And we're very excited to see Cera in apocalyptic fight scenes with Ramona's seven evil ex-boyfriends.

Our hope is that, just as the Scott Pilgrim comics transform Scott from emotionally stunted kid to … well … slightly less emotionally stunted grown-up, so will the Scott Pilgrim movie transform Michael Cera from the awkward gangly teen he's been playing so productively for years to the slightly less awkward gangly adult we think he can be.
