Happy new year! Can you believe it? A day of Twos! Sadly, this update is not to tell you about how I’ve finished all the programming guides, but I will say that plenty has happened on the EMN side of things.

After finishing preliminary lineups for all our EMN2 channels, Mandy and I decided to take a look at two lineups we weren’t entirely satisfied with, which were Toys & Games and Gaming, and we’ve since totally revamped the first and are going to work on the second next. The revamp is fantastic – we decided to go hard on product placement shows (including As Much Yu-Gi-Oh as possible) to create a bizarre Saturday Morning Cartoon mashup. It’s so funny. There are so many hilarious shows made just to sell toys. We also made a Marathons channel based on comic-book media, so Marvel and DC shows, some classic Tezuka and Leiji Matsumoto stuff, Comic Book Men, and more. It’s a pretty cool one, so I’ll need to get the site updated to reflect that sooner rather than later.

Second update! I have made a new article! No More Heroes III came out in 2021 and I wrote a big long ramble about why I liked it, and I decided to tidy up the ramble and post it here! I hope you enjoy it. It’s amazing how many people didn’t get the game, but maybe I should have seen it coming.

So, what else…well, I do plan on continuing to work on the channel lineups. EMN One had its big anniversary update, and I’ve updated the guide to reflect that, though there are some images that are missing from some of the new shows. The plan for this year is to get all the guides finished and to port over some tutorials I’ve written on how to set up your own EMN units. Make Your Own Damn Channel! I think everyone should have an EMN unit of their own. Once the guides are done and so are the tutorials it’ll be back to archival work, putting up random articles, and diving deep into my weird VHS collection.

Well, that’s all for now. I’ll talk to you later. Stay beautiful.

Mini-update on 2/28: I was suddenly seized with the desire to add a whole new section to my site, the Bookmarks tab/link list! Go check it out!
