JAM Project is a Japanese supergroup teaming the likes of Kageyama Hironobu, Endoh Masaaki, and Okui Masami--think of it as J-Rock's equivalent of the Avengers: an elite task force of the poets laureate of HOT-BLOODED ANIME HEROISM!!!

YouTuber PuppetChaos puts the proposition that JAM Project can make anything awesome to the test: here's the 1976 educational short, "Congruent Triangles" by Bruce Cornwell, set to "The Guardian" (the second Shin Mazinger opening theme):

...or so implies Google: their flying saucer logo-of-the-day leads to a search on that phrase. That this occurrence is itself unexplained is presumably part of the point, although Illuminati buffs will no doubt be eager to point out the significance of the number 5* in their mythos.

Today is also [livejournal.com profile] kosaginolegion 's birthday. I do not regard this combination of facts as a non sequitur.

*And, having checked my tag list, I note that I happen to have 17 entries (although this will be my 18th) and 23 tags--still other significant Illuminati numbers.  Damn.

During the course of a Fanficrant (community.livejournal.com/fanficrants/8042596.html) concerning anachronisms committed by younger writers of Watchmen fic, I happened to remark offhandedly that "(1970 and 1985, from the standpoint of the turn-of-the millennium generation) both fall within the Like So Before I Was Born Era, along with Shakespeare, tyrannosaurs, and zeppelins."

Be careful what you say in the earshot of fans: [livejournal.com profile] okelay   then demanded a fic involving all three.

(after exacting a promise of future pie) thereupon complied. (One of the icons I'm going to have to get drawn up and installed, along with the Teal Deer, is an ox pulling a delivery cart full of Plot Bunny Chow.)

In keeping with her fundamentalist Christian beliefs, GOP Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin has received a blessing against witchcraft from the Kenyan minister Thomas Muthee (the specific reference occurs at about 1:45):


A possibility that neither Governor Palin nor the Reverend Muthee seems to have anticipated: would this spiritual protection also nullify supportive witchcraft by Palin sympathizers?  (See "The Pagan Temple"'s comment in the thread below.)


(My long-held suspicion is that the "Go figure" demographic, whether it be on the Red, Blue, Green, or Tie-Dye sides of the Force, is persistently underestimated.)
