As you’ve probably noticed, I’m a big fan of the Tokyo creatives community site Canvas, developed by my friend Mark McFarlane — and I daresay that PauseTalk played a small role in inspiring its creation (at least Mark was nice enough to say that). I like regularly going to the “Activity” page to see what projects people are sharing, and now they’ve just done a big redesign of the “Creatives” listing page, making it easier to get a quick taste of what each person does.
I wrote something last year about Canvas — a community enclave for Tokyo-based creatives — and I’m happy to see that not only is the site still very active, but that it has now also launched an event calendar section.
I just discovered this show yesterday, and have already gone through most of the first season – you can watch all episodes online here. Don’t know how I missed this, but man, this series sure is funny. It was co-created by Dan Harmon, and so this is where I can continue to get some my Harmon fix (I gave up on Community). This really is the funniest animated series I’ve seen since discovering Adventure Time.
After the last season, I was pretty sure I was done with Community. Even after they announced the return of Dan Harmon, I just couldn’t get excited about it, as it really felt like the show had jumped the shark, and there was no going back. Well, curiosity got the better of me, and so I watched the first 2 episodes of the new season, and I think I’ll be watching more. What I’m digging is that they’ve toned down the wackiness (a tad), and that’s refreshing. And the bit with Abed doing Nicholas Cage in episode 2 was pretty damn great.
