“anime hoedown” introduction

Filed under: Hoedown — thenightsshadow @ 2:15 pm

This section will be called “Anime Hoedown”. Basically, it’s a way to keep my thoughts in the post without making it too obvious, as times may call for it.

So what’s a hoedown? The hoedown referred to here is from the now-retired television show Whose Line Is It Anyway?, where four comedians would stand up, have a topic suggested, and then basically make up lyrics up on the spot in the form of AABB (rhyme scheme) and have it fit the topic. Some weren’t that great, admittedly, but it was always interesting to see them create them out of nowhere.

Now, I’m not a comedian, so I doubt I’ll be intentionally funny, but I’ll basically do a hoedown every time a topic I’m familiar with (I mean, don’t go suggesting anime titles, like “Astro Boy”, because I probably haven’t seen it, but try for more general topics. If you want, you can drop me a line on the Animeblogger channel on IRC (#AnimeBlogger on I’m thenightsshadow there.) If a suitable topic is asked for enough times, I’ll do the hoedown as quickly as possible.

Oh, and one last thing. You have to give me seven days inbetween hoedowns, should it really kick up a notch.
