Idea Channel on Evangelion, the Death of the Author, and the Overthinking of Pop Culture

By Aaron Clark on Saturday, August 26th, 2017 in Neon Genesis Evangelion, The End of Evangelion, Video.

PBS’s Idea Channel is coming to a close after five years of diving deep into and sharing ideas about pop culture on YouTube.  One of their final few videos, on the overthinking of popular culture, is a topic that has always been a concern of mine.  Quite often I find myself, as an Evangelion fan, concerned about society’s […]

Evangelion & One Hour Photo

Neon Genesis Evangelion going out of print?

By Aaron Clark on Wednesday, November 30th, 2011 in Neon Genesis Evangelion.

I made a few tweets and facebook updates already, but after some reflection, I thought I should take a bit of time to muse over the recent developments concerning RightStuf’s sale of the Evangelion thinpack.  Around black friday, RightStuf.com began a sale on a number of items, in particular, the Evangelion thinpack for $30.  That […]
