A startling realization...

My collection of pirated Adobe fonts has a far greater market value than my collection of pirated Adobe software.

I have well over $300 worth of Garamond alone. <_<

It's interesting to see John Kricfalusi praise the excellent composition of Dennis the Menace.

While David Malki comes down hard on the flat gags.

Though to be fair, Malki does give praise the draftsmanship quality.

The worst kind of show

One that ends in terrible trainwreck, but with enough redeeming qualities that you just can't forget about it and all that's left is the sadness of knowing what it could've been.

Macross F, it could've been so good.

Its soundtrack is so good.

But every time I listen to it, I am left with a hollow feeling.

I leave you with episode 6, prelude to the first major battle and before the series' rapid descent into awful territory.

Diamond Crevasse begins 19 minutes in.

I've thought about talking on this a while ago, but an article came up so I'll just link to it instead.

In the case of Somalia, it gets even messier because in addition to EU NAVFOR and NATO, we have CTF-151, all of which have different command structures and RoE despite overlapping constituent countries. For instance, Canada is serving under NATO but is also expected to contribute to CTF-151*. Turkey is in EU but will also be flying flag for CTF-151. Greece flew flag for EU and is also part of NATO.

HMCS Winnipeg has already performed a catch and release because NATO RoE doesn't allow them to do anything else. I'm not sure if that would change under CTF-151; on one hand there was the Maersk Alabama incident, on the other hand a hostage situation is different from finding some guys and guns on a trawler.

*I'm not entirely sure how since MARCOM basically only has 2 vessels free for overseas deployment at a time.
