In today’s episode of the Miscrave Digiculture Podcast podcast I talk about Nintendo’s latest decision and why they act the way they do. Episode 118 and previous ones are now available on itunes and very soon in other podcast apps. So go ahead and download the episode from there or click/donwload here to listen. If you prefer below I also have an embedded player.
I was obsessed with Dinosaurs as a kid so when I saw this cute little playset with a dinosaur I asked my mother for it. It was a Mighty Max figure and from there on I became a huge fan and had a ton of playsets. Sadly I never got to watch the cartoon besides an episode or two until a few years ago online. The Mighty Max cartoon is very different from the stories on the playsets but is loved by many. While it may be different it’s still an awesome cartoon that I’m sure I’ll talk about in the future but we can take a look at the opening today and some information that might be interesting to fans of the show.

Music videos were something I didn’t really watch much of anymore but I’ve been checking some out lately and have been surprised by how good some of them still are, I really thought music videos had become irrelevant. Sometimes you have music videos inspired of that seem inspired by something else and in this case Highly Suspect’s “My Name is Human” is very similar in style to Ghost in the Shell. This is by no means anything official but the similarities are there.
You have a man who is basically building female robot from scratch until the end when it’s finished and it basically looks like a human. While it’s likely not an android like Matoko; A lot of the imagery seems to be straight out of Ghost in the Shell, including the movie. Some might even bring some Matrix comparisons with the completely white room and the black attire the Johnny Stevens is wearing.

Thanks to Netflix the world’s greatest thief Carmen Sandiego is back on the spotlight which she hadn’t really had since the 90s. What started as a computer game which received various sequels it also ended up getting various spin-offs, from two ame shows: “Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?” and “Where in time is Carmen Sandiego?” to an animated series, and what better way to show appreciation than with a quick review / overview of the 90’s cartoon “Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego?”.
We should first talk about the opening which is super catchy and there’s a reason for that since it’s actually a modern version with lyrics of Mozart’s “Singt dem grossen Bassa Lieder”. They really did a good job that this was some sort of crazy quest to find this one person who keeps outsmarting them all in the intro. Since it’s a song that you’ve heard so much in life it means that you already feel familiar with the show even if it’s your first time. You’ll never be as excited to start an edutainment show as you will with this opening; Sorry Magic School Bus. Go ahead and listen:

The internet has been talking about a Captain Planet movie for years and for some reason a live action movie was in production for a while which was announced a few years back but whatever happened to that? It kept going into development hell and almost cancelled. That was until recently Leonardo DiCaprio has apparently saved the project who has actually been active in the enviromental community for more than a few years now. Now if this project will actually amount to anything even with DiCaprio’s support we don’t know or if it’ll include Don Cheadle. But Captain Planet almost had an animated movie called Planet in the 90s.
I thought I would do something different today and see if I like to do it. I was cleaning up my nerd closet as I plan on selling a bunch of figures and other loot I’ve acquired over the years. While I plan on getting rid of a lot of stuff but I will be keeping my favorite things. I will be taking pictures of figures and making fun mashes from time to time. Unless it’s a huge hit I doubt they’ll be very frequent but who knows.
Nothing quite special today but I took a picture of Shampoo of Ranma 1/2 with Jango Fett as her enforcer for anyone who was thinking of doing any funny business. It was just something I did for a silly picture I was going to send but thought I’d share it here as well. We also have Zen Godzilla raking the sand to better balance out his karma and to let his chakras open up, on the background you can see Gamera trying to listen to the ocean using a shell he stole from the Zen garden.

The Magic School Bus celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2016 and while I may have missed it, it’s never too late to celebrate. It will be getting a new show as The Magic School Bus 360. So in honor of this let’s take a look at the original opening to the cartoon.
It’s quite a memorable theme song as it is catchy and the animation follows the lyrics to the song which are below. I wouldn’t say it’s a great song but it doesn’t have to be, it’s not an epic adventure show but more of a fun educational show that for some reason we watched.
