Pop Culture Classroom Goes to Jail

OK, that head line probably sounds pretty misleading, but I am going somewhere with it. Pop Culture Classroom (PCC) has a goal to help young at risk adults with their literacy and art skills. And what group is more at risk then those that are already in jail? Well thanks to a $26,000 grant that was awarded last week to the Denver-based nonprofit PCC Denver jail inmates 18 to 24 will get to take a six-week course called LEAD With Comics this February. LEAD stands for Literacy Education in Adult Detention. PCC will be working with a special education teacher from Denver Public Schools to help make this a great experience.

Well, I may have had a lot of work to do this week, but I still managed to have a lot of fun this week.  I spent a lot of time with Hyrule Warriors, but also have been re-reading one of my favorite comics and watching a sequel to one of the best animated series from the past 5 years.  All in all, a great week.  Read on to learn the details.

"Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax" coming to US!

It is no secret that I am a big fan of anime. So when it was announced that "Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax" would be released on consoles (PS3 and Vita) here in the states this summer I was pretty damned happy.  Where else will I finally get to pit out such epic matches like Kirito vs Mikoto Misaka! I guess I should give some more info on this game so you understand where I am coming from.  In "Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax" characters from different anime series fight each other to overthrown the evil Zetsumu. Ok, I really don't know much about it except I get to play some of my favorite characters from the Dengeki Bunko publishing library. This includes properties such as as "Sword Art Online", "Accel World", "Baccano!", "Durarara!!", "Spice and Wolf" and many more.

In all there will be 14 playable characters and 23 support characters. I know this may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I am really looking forward to it!

Hey everybody, the bad news this week is that I still ended up spending a huge amount of time working on that design project that I've previously mentioned.  The good news, is that the project drawings are now complete and submitted, so I should have free time this weekend (after I catch up on some of the personal life things, like car maintenance).  Anyways, here's what I was able to cram into my tight schedule this week.
