Automating Things: Downloading Reddit Media

This week, Crow published an interesting post about automating blog tasks. That reminded me of a few things I have done but never shared here (or on one of my previous blogs), and I think it’s time to post them here.

Going back in time, about 6 years ago (I’m getting old….), and maybe 3 or 4 different blogs/domains, I was writing anime reviews as a way to practice my English writing skills. And part of doing anime reviews is getting images and gifs, right? At the beginning, I would go to reddit.com/r/anime, open the episode’s discussion post, expand all images (with the help of RES - reddit enhancement suite), scroll to see whatever I liked and grab it. But this is not optimal, and being a developer, I started thinking of something more practical.

Anime Controversies [#Controversed]

Today it’s time for something a little bit different: let’s talk anime controversies. This is part of a series of posts that Moya from the Moyatorium is suggesting for November: Announcing Controversed: A November Workshop.

As I finally have an excuse to stop being lazy and actually write a blog post on my thoughts, let’s see the prompt for this week:

  • What is a controversy in the (anime/manga/other) community that bothers you, and why?
  • What do you think of controversies? Do you consider yourself or your blog controversial to any degree?

If you want to skip to any specific part, there’s a TOC on the sidebar. Also, I have no intention of offending anyone, but just sparking discussion, igniting a flame war and losing all my followers.

Happy Halloween!

Have a happy halloween everyone!

It’s been a while since I posted last here, and I didn’t have time to prepare anything horror-themed :(

Enjoy the festivities, a pumpkin spiced latte, watch some Dark Shadows (the original soap opera) and listen to the Penny Dreadful OST!
