Videos That Make You Smile: Dog Versus Coat

When my dog Milo saw my old coat for the first time . . . well . . .  it was pretty funny . . .

Today’s video comes from me! I uploaded and posted it bitches! So no links for you!

Milo and Otis

My dog Milo is named after the cat in the movie Milo and Otis. If you haven’t figured that out yet. He reminded me of that cat and well he sure ain’t no pug. That’s for sure.

Which is exactly what I told one of my friends recently.

Then he asked me what Milo and Otis was.

I freaked out! I said,”You don’t know what Milo and Otis is?”

He said no.

So then I showed him.

Then he understood . . .

Today’s image comes from, which is filled with WTF. Go there to understand what.

The Best Posts of 2011

1. My Anime North 2011 Posts

This year I decided to chronicle my trip to Anime North 2011 on this blog. In a series of posts, I talked about everything, including being held up at the border, the results of my workshop, and my experience of being staff at the event. As always, Anime North is a major part of my life and was a major part of this blog at the end of May and the beginning of July. It holds some of the most special memories for me. This is the anime north posts are number one on this list!

Wrap up Post

2. Man Dies From Toothache

When I first came across this news story, it scared the shit out of me! And with a tooth problem of my own, I was afraid that I would meet a similar fate. (Did I mention that I am a hypochondriac?) Not that I did that much about the tooth. But I will, eventually. Ignoring the tooth thing, this story was a stark reminder of the reality of the have and the have-nots. And how our medical system is broken. Now if I could only figure out what to do to fix it . . .

3. Weird Canadian Comic

This post of definitely one of my favorite posts of all time! Partly because of the hilarious nature of the image, but also because of the fact that one commenter though I was Canadian! It was cute and sweet, but alas I am NOT Canadian! It doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy political cartoons. I love those beasties no matter where they come from! Hell, at one point, I wanted to become a political cartoonist. Of course, its a dying art though . . . But Who knows! In 2012 I may make some! Only time will tell . . .

4. Portal 2 Comic

This one is almost too awesome to bear! (Yes that was a terrible pun). I found this beastie all the back in October. It was so great that I got it out as soon as I could! Now it is a classic among my posts. Read it again, I dare you!

5. Sharing my pain

2011 has been both a great year and one full of pain. At the end of summer, I suffered a big setback professionally. I messed up – BIG TIME!!! And believe me, I mulled over it again and again. And in this post, dated August 1st, I go over exactly what happened at the Infringement Festival.

6. Sad Story of a Dog

Going with the theme of pain, this one comes from one of the many natural disasters this year. A little Beagle is found alive seven days after Japan’s 13th Typhoon cradled in the arms of his dead owner. Sadly, I do not know what happened to Chiro after this article was published but I hope that he found a good home.

This year marked the 15th Anniversary of the N64. To celebrate it, I listed the top 5 best and worst games for the system. Now each game I had to either play or have experienced personally to get on the list. That means there are provably many more out there that deserve honors (for either one) that I simply do not know of. I dare YOU to make up your own list! If you, I promise to post it here!

Sad story from Japan . . .

Today’s offering is a simple one: a story from Japan’s recent typhoon. It is a story of Survival and a story of death. And possibility of change within Japanese society. As you might be aware, traditionally, the Japanese have not placed a high value on their dogs. There are a few exceptions, the story of hachiko for example. Sadly, these were exceptions, not the norm. Which makes this story even more special:

Dog Survives Landslide, Cradled in Arms of Dead Owner

Akiko FujitaBy Akiko Fujita

Days after the worst storm in seven years tore through central Japan, another typhoon – the 13th this year – moved in on the country’s northern trip bringing record rainfall. Parts of Hokkaido, Japan’s northern most island got more than 15 inches of rain, triggering flooding and increasing the threat of landslides.

Further south in central Japan, search and rescue crews began airlifting food and water to towns cut off by Typhoon Talas, as the death toll continued to climb. About four dozen people have been confirmed dead, while nearly 60 are still missing. Thousands remain in evacuation centers, and many more are without power. Japanese Self Defense forces moved in on the hardest hit areas by helicopter, to rescue residents, many of them elderly, in need of help.

Amid the massive cleanup effort, a heartwarming story of survival emerged. In the city of Tanabe, where at least four people were still missing, rescuers reported hearing a dog crying beneath all the rubble, in an area where homes were crushed by landslides.

They removed piles of wood and muddy debris, to find a beagle named “Chiro” cradled by his owner Masae Yamamoto. Yamamoto didn’t survive, but Chiro appeared unscathed and in good spirits, despite being covered in dirt. Images on tv, showed the dog eagerly drinking water, while sniffing around for food.

”[Yamamoto] loved dogs,” a relative told NHK. “I believe rescuers were able to find her body so quickly, because of [Chiro].”


Look at this puppy and it’s master – sooo cute!
