Protégé de la Rose Noire, Partie Une.

First, a reminder -- you can buy Scary-Crayon apparel at our Cafepress store! If you care to, anyway. I'll have more links to the store on the site soon enough. And maybe even folks modeling it. So if you think you're sexy and you buy something, SEND PHOTOS! I'll post 'em. Yep.

Anyway, today's update is the first part of our full Protégé de la Rose Noire review. As noted in the article's introduction, you really should check out the piece on The Illuminated Lantern about the Black Rose's complex history if you'd like to learn more about the titular heroine, because it really is interesting stuff. I do find it a bit strange that the more recent Black Rose flicks basically take a classic HK film icon and render her absolutely stark-raving batshit mad, though! I mean, we Yanks know that Batman's pretty nutty, but we'd probably call foul if a new film depicted him trying to hack his latest houseguest to death.

Also, as noted several times in the piece, I think this article contains (at least) the first documented online usages of the term Castraticon, meaning "castration robot". Good lord.

And that does it for this update -- join us next time for the second part of our Protégé de la Rose Noire review! Ja ne, minna-san.

P.S. If you've got any Twins CDs you don't want, please let me know. 😉
