Yeah. It was a sad day when Bandai closed shop on us. But it’s cool. Word is getting around I’m available for some fine, fine automobile wordsmithing, so we’ll see. I keep meaning to write more at Nippolitica (https://nippolitica.wordpress.com/) but it’s hard to be motivated when you know the benefit is abstract Read more

I’m on Twitter pretty much 24/7, and thus interact with the current and former Jalop staff pretty much daily.

I work for the UN as of April... rough couple of years previous to that. 2017 and 2018 were tough, was writing for Anime-Now, but that got folded. Got stuck substituting. Not much pay, not much time to write. Did a Hail Mary on the UN Job and got it. Read more

None taken. Remember, business side is, and should be, separate from editorial. I disagreed with Nick on several issues, both publicly and behind the scenes. Nick encouraged this, and frankly, I found him to be one of most accessibly top of the company bosses I’ve ever had. Imagine when I worked for Macy’s/Federated Read more

I’ll believe it when I have seen it. I haven’t seen at any time in the last 40 years or so. We keep saying what the models say they will do, but they don’t. Every time we have tried this before it has been a failure. Why do we think it’s going to be any more likely this time around?

But Pat, they don’t. I wish they did, but they don’t. Time and time again we see these tax cuts for the corporations and they absolutely don’t do any of those things. SMBs do, because they are middle class, and that is who this is going to hurt. When you have giant corporations sitting on record profits, and I mean Read more

I’m a socialist. I believe in more taxes, not fewer taxes. What tax reform means to me is closing loopholes and treating passive sources of income the same as or even as more taxable than active sources of income. I want my capital gains, and yes I have them, taxed the same or more than my salary. And I want that Read more

Naw, I’d have you send it to my NM address. I’m in ABQ for two weeks. I’d just bring it back on the plane with me.

Damn. I mean we have front plates anyway (though New Mexico does not), but I’ve seen people with seemingly custom versions, some appear DIY but with the legal plate number. Even if I couldn’t replace the front plate I was given, I thought it’d be cool to affix it to the grill or something with the same plate number. Read more

No one has died, yet. But it’s been discussed. And there have been some close calls.

The Logo had a crack for almost a year. I only replaced it last week because it’s not actually legal and it kept attracting cops, even though they never bothered citing me for it.

A couple of the teams have already had pretty serious accidents.

I would definitely like a New Mexico one with my Japanese plate number. Is it possible to add anything but Roman Letters? Could I add my kanji and my hiragana?
