FanBase’s J ROCK Show


Hey Grandmaster Ryde here to give you the rundown on last week’s FanBase so lets go. First we had to welcome back Evil Jeff who came back after being sick all of last week. I know that i make fun of and pick on my co-hosts but in truth each one of them is important to the show and helps it greatly and with out them the show losses power. So thanks to Evil Jeff for coming back. Also last weeks show was different then other shows because we decided to play all J-rock for the show. With the exception of the arcade block which was renamed the Anime block for the show every song was J-rock. We started things off with our intro’s as usual but with no female co-host, because due to directional problems she was late but the show had to go on. We started with our Blast of Sugar. This week we played Precious by Meg. After we all took about 10 shots of insulin we went in to WTF News. Our news stories for the show were: The Japanese Prime Minister calls for Thunder Birds, Japanese Women Abandon Women for Cats, Hitting Girls is Wrong so I Raped Her, Why SciFi changed their name to SyFy and finally just to show that crazy stuff happens here in the states, Burglar dismembered with Katana in Samurai Self Defense. Then we played UZU by Kagrea from the album Shu. After the song, we made the announcement that we aer going to be at EXP con which is happening Oct 9-11 in St. Augustine Florida, for all the info about it including events and special guests go to You really want to check this Con out it is going to be AWSOME. Then we played our interview with Artist/Voice actor Doug Smith from Mizucon. Then we did our daily drawing for Zona con, and our winner was so excited that every other word out of his mouth was #@$^%.  It was the funniest thing i had heard in a long time. After our hilarious phone call we played Border of the Dead by Aurural Vampire.


After the music we went into our first discussion of the day which was Realistic or unrealistic body types in anime. Evil Jeff explained that girls are tired of the Barbie body type in anime. And apparently there are problems with male characters. For example the spaghetti arms and their chins. Basically both boys and girls have legitimist reasons to complain about the body types in anime. we then went into the Anime Block. We played Modern Strange Cowboy from needless, then we played Fwa Fwa Time from K-On and the opening to the anime Maria Hlolic. Then we went into our second discussion which was a comparison between the video game series, Resident Evil and Silent Hill. We compared and contrast the two games and in the end we all voted that resident Evil was the better game, but Silent Hill is still a good game if you can i would buy both. Then we played Distorted Daytime by The Gazet. Then we went into our trivia question for the Zonacon VIP Ticket’s Our question was who is the English voice actor for Batou from Ghost in The Shell Stand Alone Complex. Then we went into our round table discussion which was “What would it be like if people tried to make a game from the movie gamer. We then ended the show with Sands of Time from Back-On. That was last weeks show, Next week Chippy is back on for her true audition for Kyrsta’s temp and more fun and random stuff to come. Tune into FanBase every Thursday at 4pm at we will see you there as we put THE RANDOM IN FANDOM               


Transparency is so important in a business. How would you like it if your boss didn’t share with you how you were doing? How the company was doing? What challenges were slowing the company’s growth? Would you know where you stood? Would you know what you could do to help the company? Would you know what your boss needed from you? Probably not. I have found, and experienced, sharing objectives, progress to the objectives, and where the team stands on obtaining long-term goals is extremely effective. This is the public display of accountability I use. It is a form of accountability of myself. If everyone on my team knows how we are doing, they know what I am working on, what I need from them in another format. This only better highlights the objective and give the team a better understanding of what needs to happen. If a member of the team didn’t understand something very well the first time I explained it, having a different description or story will solidify my meaning with them because they will better understand the issue…if not this time, the next time I describe the story. I have seen many leaders explain what they wanted to do, but failed to give stories to solidify the meaning….. rj and
