Maple Town Compendium Launching Sunday June 10!

This blog - one offering an overview and examination of the 1986 anime series Maple Town - is officially launching on Sunday June 10, 2018. 

Once officially launched, it will update once a week on Sundays in the early morning hours.

I'll talk more about this blog more when it launches.  Its main purpose is to document information about Maple Town in order to tell others and to record its existence for posterity.

I'll have a few updates between now and the official blog launch date.  So stay tuned, subscribe to the RSS feed and get ready for some in-depth information about an anime series.

Test Post 5

Nothing here to see, people.  Just one final test at scheduling proper posting and pulling in a smidgen of traffic.  Just disregard this too.

The eye is a menace to clear sight, the ear is a menace to subtle hearing, the mind is a menace to wisdom, every organ of the senses is a menace to its own capacity. ... Fuss, the god of the Southern Ocean, and Fret, the god of the Northern Ocean, happened once to meet in the realm of Chaos, the god of the center. Chaos treated them very handsomely and they discussed together what they could do to repay his kindness. They had noticed that, whereas everyone else had seven apertures, for sight, hearing, eating, breathing and so on, Chaos had none. So they decided to make the experiment of boring holes in him. Every day they bored a hole, and on the seventh day, Chaos died. -- Chuang Tzu 

He that composes himself is wiser than he that composes a book. -- B. Franklin 

It's easier to take it apart than to put it back together. -- Washlesky 

All generalizations are false, including this one. -- Mark Twain 

A is for Apple. -- Hester Pryne 

It is often the case that the man who can't tell a lie thinks he is the best judge of one. -- Mark Twain, "Pudd'nhead Wilson's Calendar" 

An honest tale speeds best being plainly told. -- William Shakespeare, "Henry VI"

Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd. - Voltaire 

...It is sad to find him belaboring the science community for its united opposition to ignorant creationists who want teachers and textbooks to give equal time to crank arguments that have advanced not a step beyond the flyblown rhetoric of Bishop Wilberforce and William Jennings Bryan. - Martin Gardner, "Irving Kristol and the Facts of Life", The Skeptical Inquirer, Vol. XII No. 2, ppg. 128-131 

"The pathology is to want control, not that you ever get it, because of course you never do." -- Gregory Bateson
