Here's what's going on Talk Amongst Yourselves, our reader-written blog: Bobsplosion starts up a thread to round up the best pick-me-up anime, Dexomega shares an essay on the cultural diffusion between the U.S. and Japan, and Greg the Mad reviews the newest Hobbit movie.

Don't forget that you can always go join the voices talking about video games and life in TAY Classic and in the TAY: Open Forum.
