fitzgerald has got the straightedge
I feel stupid for not figuring out that "Bloody Stumps" is an anti-smoking song and not just a song about amputation. Elizabeth is a genius just for figuring that out.
I hate to do this, but I have to ask one more time if people are downloading the shows on here and if y'all think I should keep putting my shows on the site. The reason for this is that it's been almost a year since I started doing this, so it's almost time to re-register the boogiepopdoesnotsmile.com domain name? So, I'm going to ask again for all the people who download the show to post a comment below and represent.
I forgot to play the Advantage's Ducktails [sic] track. Whoops! I'll try again next week.
Here's another stab at MySpace whoring... Add me as your friend on MySpace and instantly qudruple your indie cred! My MySpace URL is http://www.myspace.com/boogiepopdoesnotsmile.
Finally, I'll tell you more about the transmitter difficulties when we figure out what's wrong and how to get it fixed.
Here's the show:
1/23/06 Part 1
1/23/06 Part 2
btw, here's a site with some trax you would probably enjoy ----->

Sorry for being a troublemaker, but I do want to show I care ...

Boogiepop Wa Warawanai (ブギーポップは笑わない, commonly translated as Boogiepop Doesn't Laugh, Boogiepop Never Laughs or Boogiepop Never Smiles) is the name, and central character, of a series of Japanese novels written by Kouhei Kadono and illustrated by Kouji Ogata. The first novels has been turned into a live action movie while a new story arc, not covered in the novels, covering the end of the first novel and part of the second novel has been turned into a 12 part Anime series called Boogiepop Phantom. The first two novels have also been turned into two graphic novels or Manga called Boogiepop Wa Warawanai and Boogiepop Dual. The Anime series and movie (March 2005 TRSI) have been officially translated into English and licensed for translation and sale outside of Japan.
Most Westerners are familiar with it through the anime series Boogiepop Phantom.
Boogiepop is best characterized as young adult fiction, with a paranormal horror bent. However, the convoluted, non-linear storyline of the anime series, Boogiepop Phantom, is probably more suitable to educated mature audiences than most young adult viewers.
The first novel, Boogiepop and Others, describes the battle between a mysterious man called Echoes and a bloodthirsty creature called the Manticore; the students at Shinyo Academy who are caught in the crossfire; and the involvement of Boogiepop, a crime-fighting super heroine of sorts, in these events.
The anime series starts at the end of the first novel.
There are currently ten core Boogiepop novels, three novels set within the universe and four short story collections.
In Late 2005, Seven Seas Entertainment announced that they had aquired the rights to publish translations of the Boogiepop Novels and manga in america. "Boogiepop and Others" is scheduled for release on Febuary 14, 2006.
