Hello Expressionists, Ratin8tor here to give the Outstanding Content of the Week.
Well we had a lot of great nominations this week, especially in the video section. A lot. But, as a great man would have probably once said if he'd been in this exact position: “We choose to rank these blogs and videos. We choose to rank these nominations, we choose to rank these nominations in this week and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.”
… Entirely irrelevant to anything that's going on, but onto the runner-ups and winners.

And the winner, of Outstanding Video of the Week, is...
To quote this weeks winner: “So I decided to review another Studio Bee Train installment, since I haven't done so very often; that's right...two Bee Train entries, back to fucking back! XD However, unlike my slight elation for Murder Princess, Avenger gets very little 'sympy' from yours truly! My goodness, was this 13-episode melodrama a chore to sit through! More details in the review itself.” So who wrote this? Why none other then the brilliant Lava Buster, first time nominating himself, and the winner this week. So go check out his brilliant review.

The name is Chimp. Gurning Chimp. His mission: to bring you the top 12 best James Bond one liners with the help of his sexy Bond Girl, Les. You could even say that this list was... That his blog is... That the winner this week...
Damn coming up with a one liner is hard. Just appreciate Gurning Chimps (and glamorous assistant Legsy Les) appreciation of the wittier one lines while I struggle to come up with one of my own (You could say that it was... Something about a shark maybe...)
