Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer

Rainbow Brite Movie PosterThis episode  I review the  1985 cartoon movie classic Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer.

Yes, Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer.

Yes, I have lost my mind.

Rainbow Brite is based on as series of hallmark cards about a little girl who controls rainbows and is in charge of all of the colors on earth.   There is also a television series from the eighties that is filled with almost as much crack as this 85 minute movie. Seriously, this thing is cracktastic.   It has pink sparkly mind control robots, a little girl who can breathe in space, a talking robot jet pack horse, and an evil plan to STEAL AN ENTIRE PLANET.

This episode is only half the length of a normal episode because we only had half the hosts. No matter how much I may love the sound of my own voice, I wasn’t able to record a full length episode on my own.   Melanie was having computer problems and was unable to record the episode with me so I decided to record it by myself.   Because I’m so dedicated.   And hardcore.   Hardcore Rainbow Brite Watching. It’s just how I roll.

Also, Melanie hates me now because she watched this movie for no reason. Ha ha.

Fanfiction SPECIAL

Funny fanfiction related gif  This episode we discuss fanfiction! Fanfiction, for anyone not in the know, is fiction written by fans of series/books/movies etc. of properties they do not own. They make no money off of their fanfiction.   The quality can range from better than the original to ‘oh my god a monkey has learned how to type?!

We do have some background in fanfiction.   Both of us are fanfiction writers, and have probably read more fanfiction than is medically recommended over the years.   However, we’re no experts by any means. In this episode, we cover a wide range of sub topics.   Some of the topics we discuss include:   leaving feedback for fanfiction, out of character tags (OOC), shipping, original characters in fanfiction, Mary Sues, lemons, MMPreg, crossovers, and authors who hate fanfiction of their work.

The specific examples we use to illustrate our points mostly come from anime fanfiction.   For example, Kasey expresses her undying hatred of Sasuke/Hinata stories (stay away from her you bastard!), Melanie attempts to explain MMpreg, no one can remember the name of the 10th Kingdom miniseries, and neither of us understand why high school Naruto fics are so popular.   Although, having the Akatsuki work at Hot Topic makes perfect sense.

Also, if anyone were to ever write a GTO/Utena crossover, Kasey would be your BFF forevah and evah.

This episode will have a slight echo if you listen to it with very high quality headphones. I edited it once, but didn’t realize it had an echo until I was listening on my expensive headphones.   I painstakingly edited it again, but Audacity corrupted the file when I was almost done.   I apologize, but after 10 hours of the second edit, I just need to walk away from this or forfeit my sanity.
We also start saying curse words this episode, because editing them out is too much work.

Series Mentioned: Naruto, One Piece, Great Teacher Onizuka, Utena, 10th Kingdom

Fanfics mentioned:   Diplomatic Relations, Time and Time Again, For the Love of My Friends
