Weekly Wordpress Wrap for 13/05/2012

I ordered a bluray of Gettysburg thinking it was the Ted Turner movie, and ended up with an OK documentary produced by Ridley and Tony Scott.

On Friday I noticed that Madman had run a poll for their Top 20 anime titles, and I indulged in some entirely predictable snarking (given what's number one, and what isn't on the list at all).  I was clearly bored since I also updated the Anime Review List page to include recent posts.

It is now the last week of voting for the 2012 Chronos Awards so the inevitable reminder went up.  For postal votes the last day is probably Wednesday if it is going to be here by Friday. 

I also spent a fair chunk of the week continuing to watch ARIA the NATURAL, and enjoying the relaxation that doing so always brings.

EDIT: I just answered a challenge from pedanther On Fandoms Three, which I'm including because it is still Sunday. :)
