We have a forum!

It has been suggested in more than one place (here being one of them 🙂 ) that we should have a forum where folks can chat about Cowboy Bebop and other things that may be of interest.

We can talk about Cowboy Bebop there, or if the threads start going off topic, well that’s ok.

The news coming out of the country is grim and the west coast of North America are at […]

Spike and Faye – made for each other?

Faye was revived from cryosleep three years ago. Spike escaped from the syndicate three years ago. Both started a […]

Ed Sings!

Sweet, crazy little Ed

I heard Aoi Tada was a singer, but hadn’t heard her until now.

Search for her on youtube and you’ll find gems like this: Brave Song that is the ending song to the anime Angel Beats. I haven’t seen it, that’s what the uploader says.

She has a darling, demented Edward […]

Who’s the true samurai?

Of course, Cowboy Bebop made use of foreshadowing, the most obvious being from the shot I’m using as the iconic picture for this posting. “Honky Tonk […]
