Anime Hell on Otaku Generation

In celebration of Halloween, our very own Jeff "Rich Lather" Tatarek has been interviewed on the Otaku Generation podcast regarding just what the heck this Anime Hell nonsense is all about. The interview starts around the 29 minute mark and runs for about 45 minutes, though there are some points where there's some abrupt edits, such as during discussion of "Tokyo Breakfast" or "Daryl Surat." The AWO must exist in the shadows, after all.

Perhaps I should start learning how to use After Effects so that I, too, may try and be as cool as the Ohayocon shows. Then again, Hard Gay has been part of the Panel OF DOOM! for a while now, and now I've got friends who are Razor Ramon HG cosplayers themselves, so if he's the new face of Hell, I'm down with that. If Jeff wishes to dress as Hard Gay to go along with his vocal impression, he should remember: you have to shave your legs and stuff for authenticity's sake.

as soon as i'm done with my harsh back to back Sugoi & Youmacon weekend shows, i'll be working with Jeff on the ohayocon lineup. I was definitely going to suggest the HG segment (as well as the Kamen Rider Kabuto ep) Daryl's used in PoD (and especially given jeff's proclivity for tokusatsu ^_^). I also successfully integrated about 6-7 minutes in 4 chunks of the Japanorama 2 -Otaku episode for Sugoi.

Excellent stuff. Yes, it's time to begin working on Ohayocon. I've contected them so all that appears to be necessaary to be OFFICIAL is to fill out their panel paperwork.

Oh, and I'm not shaving ANYTHING. If I were to dress up for it, it'd be as my just-made-up arch-nemesis for Hard Gay: Hard Straight.

I'm having a difficult time visualizing what "Hard Straight" would look like.

Does anybody have any video of Hard Gay's wrestling matches?

Jeff Tatarek said...

"Hard Straight" would be a Vegas-era Elvis jumpsuit and glasses, afro wig, and a faux gold "HS" necklace.

Oh, and I ought to point out that I don't think there are really any "abrupt edits" in that particular podcast. Alan Chaess tends to leave pretty much everything in, although the bit at the end where I jump in with one last point about Anime Hell -was- edited, because they'd already rolled the closing music.
