Happy April Fools. Personally, as a child of the tech culture, April Fools gets tiring. There’s a lot of slick cool jokes, a lot of them I actually want to be real, and a huge amount of stupid ones. The internet fuels them, and half the time they are based on tired memes or old forum jokes. But sometimes, there’s one that’s not a troll, not false hope, just pure.

This was one of those moments.

I grew up in the 90s and look back to that time and miss the good old days. My desk and room are littered with the modern versions of the franchises I grew up with plus some more vintage stuff. Toonami was one of those grand childhood memories. I still throw on [url=]ToonamiAftermath[/url] from time to time when I’m working. So, flipping on Adult Swim for some back ground noise and seeing they brought it back, was just a surreal moment. They could have thrown up old footage, but those guys went way above and beyond, even bringing back Steve Blum for some fresh lines as TOM the host. My friends and I just couldn’t believe it. I really can’t put into words my emotional state. I had the biggest grin in the world and just the purist bliss I could think of. No matter how much stress, I was just happy. Plain, simple, pure, happiness. Nearly brought a tear to my eye. Like I said, I grew up with this, it was like the best gift anyone could give me. It made it a good day. Thanks Adult Swim, you got me, right in the heart-strings. Kudos.

Stay Golden. Bang.
