There is now just 1 week left to fund the second set of DVDs for Creamy Mami. And as of right now we are still over $11,000 away from the $18,000 goal.
Again, here’s how it works. You can donate as little as $5, but a $40 pledge will get you the preorder of the second set. In addition, you can add on the previous set to your order in case you missed it. There are other incentives in there as well for the Creamy Mami fan.
If this set fails, we won’t get any of the other sets and I believe the weekly episodes will stop being uploaded and eventually taken off the site. So even if you have no interest in the DVDs and just watch the streams, you still need to pledge. Or else no more official Creamy Mami at all.
This is a lovely remastered version of GAINAX’s amateur film DAICON IV, set to ELO’s “Twilight.”
I was in charge of securing the rights for the use of “Twilight” and the Playboy bunny costume. After a lot of spendy long-distance calls (it was 1989, and long distance cost like one was calling Pluto), it was decided time was better spent elsewhere.
My feeling was, as much as I loved “Twilight,” and as much of an achievement it was for a unpaid rag-tag group of twenty-somethings it was going to be seen as an amateur film and we’d be laughed off.
This video still makes me cry like I’m seeing it for the first time. It simply hits all the right buttons.

The late great Toren Smith standing in front of some comics that changed my life.
Recently discovered this somewhat-worse-for-wear bit of (anime) Dirty Pair ephemera lurking in a pile o’ crap dating back to my bygone Kubert School days. An extra from Animage magazine, this was a tie-in to the sadly overlooked 10-episode OAV series* that appeared circa ‘87-‘88.
Always thought that was a cute pic of Kei, though I have to deduct points for the implied presence of Project Eden's Carson D. Carson at far right. (I was not, to to put it mildly, a big fan of his character's actions in that sometimes problematic film.)
*For one thing, that OAV series featured the Lovely Angels rocking identical silver costumes, which I vastly preferred to the differently colored outfits worn in most of the DP’s anime incarnations. Perhaps not coincidentally, my own interpretation of Kei and Yuri’s “smartsuits” took a similar approach.
I still have the first anime I ever bought and it was in 1992. It took me forever to save around $30 and it is a VHS tape. oh those were the days.
