About

Wow, it’s been a really long time since I updated my wall.

Overall I’d say I’m a pretty average netizen. I watch the occasional anime when I have time, my traditional favorites being Trigun, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Starblazers (Uchuu Senkan Yamato). Also, as you can tell by my avatar, I’m a fan of MLP (though I try my best to not be obnoxious about it), and western cartoons/animation in general.

As far as gaming goes, I see myself gravitate primarily towards the indie and retro circles, though of course I love the occasional triple AAA release. I like strategy games such as Dwarf Fortress and the Civilization series, most games that Valve makes, and really anything that looks fun. These days I mostly do my gaming through Steam, and if you want to friend me here’s my profile:

I’ve always been really interested in internet culture, I think it’s really fascinating to observe how things spread and mutate over time. That’s why I’ve loved KYM so much.

Within the MLP fandom, I enjoy all the fantastic fan content our artists create. I don’t watch as many videos or listen to as much music as I used to, but I still dabble in those. Primarily these days I’m into the art and fanfiction.

Speaking of fanfiction, my only real claim to fame in this fandom would be my story, I Wasn’t Prepared For This. It received a far better reaction than I ever could have hoped for. Still, things IRL have held me back from continuing it for a long time, though I hope to bring it out of hiatus very soon.

I must not have checked back on my comment to notice your post. I’m sorry!

Trigun, Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Bebop…

Self-contained series are the best. They don’t overstay their welcome.

As an avid member of the symphonic band all throughout the schools I have attended, and someone who understands the benefits that music have on an education, I’d like to say just one thing: fuck off, you whiny, uncultured swine.

HOLY SHI-
They actually addressed it! Molestia/Celestia is officially not around!
I wonder if we’ll get an actual resolution to this plot line some time within the next two years. Faust’s story arc was never finished either.

Commented on For fucks sake copyright.

Hey guys, don’t downvote this image, even though you understandably despise the content of the notice. Upvote it so more people can see it, alright?

As for my thoughts on the notice itself… I don’t see how this would hold up in court. Fair Use, parody, all that stuff, right? Besides, if Hasbro was actually trying to get his vids taken down, they wouldn’t send a notice through the PM system. Companies already have that whole ContentID system which Youtube uses to send copyright strikes.

I’m calling bullshit, and I hope Jan smells it too.

Commented on Twitch Plays Pokemon

Given the current trend of doing the “Combination” version of each gem (Crystal for G/S, Emerald for Ruby/Saphire), we’ll probably be playing Platinum next.

Or at least, we WOULD, if it wasn’t a DS game, and therefor very difficult to emulate. DS emulation is still in its early stages and is way to shitty to handle TPP. The dev might try it, but it’d take a lot more work to pull off.

I can see absolutely no way to do X/Y, unless we somehow hooked up the TPP chat to a live, physical 3DS. It’d be possible, but again, would take a lot of work. I expect them to try though.

Basically his thesis, yeah.
One of the most bizarre concepts I’ve ever heard from any religion ever.

You know, I’ve never really liked this guy’s art.
There’s just something about the style, something about the look of the art itself, that just puts me off completely. I’ve never enjoyed any of the images he’s made in this style.

I think it’s the faces, mostly. Those faces are horrifying.

Make sure to have annotations on. They’re the best part.

Looking the Wikipedia article on Abitur, that thing sounds pretty important! Definitely a different system then what we have over here, pretty interesting.

I love learning about other places.
