Are They Or Aren’t They?: Jane Lane

The recent DVD release of Daria: The Complete Animated Series has been a godsend to fans of MTV’s original snarky teen. It’s been eight years since the series ended, but the characters and storylines remain relatable. The backbone of the series has always been the relationship between Daria and her BFF (although she’d never call her that) Jane Lane.  After meeting in a self-esteem class, the two quickly become friends and, despite a few rough patches, maintain a close relationship throughout the series. How close of a relationship the two shared was a cause of much speculation during the show’s original run.  Today we examine one half of the Daria/Jane duo and ask the question: Is Jane queer?

Forum Buzz Highlight: APB – All Points Bulletin

Talk about an upcoming GTA style MMO

  • I got to try it for 15 hours during a pre-release event with 5 of my friends, and we’ve pre-ordered our copies since then.
    What the f— is this?
    APB’s a pretty damn cool third-person shooter for the PC. Think Grand Theft Auto but multiplayer; you get to choose between being an enforcer or a criminal, then after a ludicrously elaborate character creation screen you and your friends arrive in a district instance of max 100 people.

Nerd Music: Pokemon Reorchestrated

A Wild Pokemon Symphony has appeared!

pokemon symphony logo

Pokemon Reorchestrated is a wonderful project brought to you by Braxton Burks (AKA skotein) and Richard LaBrooy (AKA Seiiki). They take the musical pieces from the old school first gen Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow  games and transform the nostalgic beeps and boops into full fledged orchestral arrangements.

They use instrument sample libraries from companies such as East West, Project SAM, audiobro, and Westgate Studios to achieve a realistic orchestral sound and tweak the final products with Logic Pro for sound engineering, and Finale for arranging the scores.

Skotein was awesome enough to give us a short interview.
