Stairway to Heaven

Fig. 2M- "That's the Main Hall over there. That's the battlefield." - Madarame

Today was SO fantastic. Not even the most annoying geek posers could ruin the sheer bliss of pure, CON wonderfulness.

I love it.

More in later days...

New Friends

Ok, so it's not really real "New Friends". It's you people. Kinda' odd I substitute real friendship for publicly yelling about things online, but I'll take what I can get. If you'd like to be a real friendly friend, be sure to just join the Friends box over in the Friendly right bar.

Fig. R6 - The Ending of the new Spaceship Earth

Today many other online friends over at WDW Magic are awaiting news that something, anything, has happened to the finale of Spaceship Earth. I wish em' well, I know I'd like to see something. I just won't believe it until I see fuzzy photographic evidence if it myself!

Fig. L5 - You've gotta' be kidding me...

Good Smile Company, makers and distrubtors of things I need, showed off some pictures of another new FIGMA today, this time it's Kagami from Lucky Star cosplaying as everyone's favorite elecronic vocaloid Miku Hatsune! This is great, but sucks on many different levels.

(Levels of suck from least to greatest)

-FIGMA are more exspensive and harder to obtain in America.

-You can't get the Miku program in America

-Kagami cosplays as her in an OVA, which (you guessed it) you can't get in America.

-It comes with that great annoyed face.

-You can put that great annoyed face on the regular FIGMA Kagami.

-I don't have the regular FIGMA Kagami, so it's all kind of fruitless really.

Oy. Anyways, tomorrow is MEGACON, so I'm fully excited!

We interrupt this regularly scheduled Blog, for some necessary viewing, as it contains hilarity, and just about mentions/tributes everything I love as well as being TRUE.

What About Wednesday

Servo's Journal. February 25th, 1985.

Uh, sorry. No. That was wrong. Not really as dramatic as all that.

Fig. E7 - Good news everyone!

So the Final FUTURAMA m0vie came out, Into the Wild Green Yonder. It's fantastic, and you need to buy it immediately. I don't see you running!

Oh well, if you are still here, which you shouldn't be, then take a look at the new Evangelion Apps out for the iPhone/iTouch. They are WIN.

That's about it really for today.

Get working on buying that DVD now.

Talking to Myself

Well this Monday was uneventful, and I'm thankful for that. Mostly just watching.

Fig. Y9 - Wanna' look up some crazy stuff on the internet?

Last night was, as I'm sure you already know, The Oscars. Pretty angry they snubbed Dark Knight and Wall-E in some very important categories. They made up for it though by featuring Dale and Saul.

I'm easy to trick, just sucker me in with the things that I like....

Beware the Weekends


People love Weekends. After a long week of working, who wouldn't enjoy two days of kicking back and relaxing? The Premise: Love it. The Execution: Not that great. For me, I spend all week facing trials and tribulations with a new mindset of confidence. Every week I make up a new mantra and believe that this is the week everything will be OK. It works!

Until the Weekend. Then the hell brakes loose. It's never anyone's fault, it's just that for me the weekend is when all the crap I DON'T enjoy decides to happen between Friday evening and Monday morning. Is it the weekend's fault? Maybe. Think about it...Saturday and Sunday are the only (Non-holiday) days of the calender that promise f
un. I mean, nobody in offices say "Hey, it's almost TUESDAY! Can't wait!" or "Thank God It's Thursday". Even though, statistically, you've probably had more enjoyable Tuesdays than you've had "Fun" Sundays. Think about it. How many Tuesdays do good plans go awry? Almost never. You expect a Tuesday to suck. When in reality, you probably got some work done, watched some TV, spent some time on the computer, had a nice lunch or dinner and then went to sleep early or late, your call. Even though you may have had unwanted things to do, you probably did them on YOUR time, because others were busy. Now think about Saturdays. Oh how you waited for them...made plans with friends. Made plans for yourself! And how often have those plans been completely derailed to unforeseen circumstances? Often I assume. Friends can't make it, they have other plans. Other people force you into situations you don't want to do. How many saturdays and sundays HAVE YOU REALLY been in COMPLETE control of?

Everybody pulling you around on the weekends, most likely. So whereas weekdays promise suck, they actually have more of a chance to offer some nice moments of solitude and relaxation. Normality. Control. The Weekends? Promise nothing but fun, and when the fun doesn't arrive, where are you left?

Standing alone in the rain on a Sunday waiting for someone to make you do something you never really wanted to do in the first place.

Fig. 8E - This wouldn't be as bad.

So hopefully I'll feel better tonight after LOOK AROUND YOU. Thankfully TV shows are the shot of hard liquor that can always make annoying days a bit better. On Friday we have pure DOLLHOUSE happiness from Joss Whedon. And Saturday we have my stories, CODE GEASS , which is pretty much the best show ever and will leave me tumbling around in the wind due to hollow-shellness after it ends.

Fig. j5 - FIGMA is LOVE

Danny Choo (AKA LUCKY ) gives us fresh pictures of upcoming FIGMA this week. His Week In Tokyo Blog partly inspired to finally start Servoism up, under the title "A Week NOT in Tokyo".

Over at WDWMagic my online home-away-from-home, it seems like lots of sighs will be shed over the loss of Jim MacPhee's departure as EPCOT Vice President. This is really bad news, because I think these past years have been the best in EPCOT's modern history. And in his place we get someone who was in charge of Magic Kingdom, and we all know how well off that park is nowadays.


It appears that Michael Cera has been cast as THOR, and Edgar Wright has been cast as the new Lara Croft in a new Tomb Raider film. Great casting choices!

Oh well, even though it is another week not in Tokyo, Saturday brings me the ONE day of the year I really love: MEGACON! By this time in just a few short days I'll get a rare day of lines, comics, and buying the Otaku things that make me oh so happy with my few precious monies. So until then I'll just have to endure my sucker-punched stomach and aching back and wait for the CON at the end of the tunnel.

Til' tomorrow inter-friends...

Is SERVOISM for you?

Hello, welcome. I'm EpcotServo, and from now I'll be posting (Sometimes daily) small blurbs of SERVOISM. What is Servoism you ask? Not a blog. Without a doubt, it's not a Blog. Not even close! In this Blog-style page, I'll be talking nonchalantly about goings on. Figures, Music, Internets, Movies, Television, Anime, Board Games, what have you, and general daily Otaku grumblings. So is SERVOISM right for you?

Fig. 1A - Soul Crushing Depression

Does this look familiar? Well it should. That's your life! Reflect on it a bit, then proceed. If you feel like you could really go for a strong drink right now, have a strange urge to watch reruns of uncommonly average sitcoms, or feel like you need to go the bathroom but don't want to walk all the way to the bathroom, don't panic! This is normal. Just repress the hidden feelings and continue on. Bury it deep down in there!

Fig. 17Y- Is Servoism the way to SUCCESS?

Are you looking to succeed in life? If the answer is yes, daily reading of Servoism may not be right for you. Consult your doctor or local Geek!

Fig. 4C - Anime: Scientifically proven to be better than the American Dream

Have you now, or ever, been to Japan? If you have, then you will never understand the frustration that is: Servoism.

Fig. 36F - How does Disney affect you, emotionally?

If you know what "EMV", "DVC", "DAK", or "DCA" means, you're always welcome!

Fig. 2G - Figures & You

When your hear the word "Figures" do you think of "Mathematics" or "Imported Plastic, PVC, or Resin"? If the answer is the latter, you too are on the path of enlightenment!

Fig. 24L - It's a Wonderful Otaku Life

Word Problem: You are in a store of things you enjoy. You clearly notice that there are other like-minded people shopping around you. Do you...A: Politely Converse with others, or B: Avoid eye contact and continue shopping fast and orderly, like on a Mission from God. And do you live EVERY day like that moment?

Fig. 49X - You are Success!

Congratulations! You've powered your way into the high-energy blog of Tomorrow through your can-not-do spirit! Through just asking a few simple questions, we've determined if you're right for Servoism after all! You clearly embody the spirit of EpcotServo, Tom Servo, and FREEDOM. See you Tomorrow! Bye-eee!
