RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!
-Death Note USA has a director?!
-Wrath of the Toilet Goddess?!

All that, and first-grade advice for long distance relationships, in this week’s Friday ACE!


SHOW NOTES:

Mike here. Time to take care of some housekeeping:

-After much demanding (and my constant forgetfulness), I’ve added the titles to the opening and ending themes for the show in in the notes from here on out. And before you ask, the theme used for The J-Indies Spotlight was “Living Dying Message” by 9mm Parabellum Bullet. It’s from their 2008 album, VAMPIREhttp://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=TOCT-26599

-Screwed up my info–Dream5 just covered the song with no ties to the original band, Finger 5. For some vintage fun, here’s some live footage of Finger 5 performing the original version of “Koi no Dial 6700” – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCPY5VscATA

-And the 2010 Best In Tune Special is in the can and should be going up any day now!

That’s it for now. Leave a comment or e-mail me at fridayace.ousaATgmail.com!
