Blog Update

Maybe a few of you have noticed, but the past few days I have been a little bit less active on my own blog, and commenting on posts from your blogs. Now, no worries, my blog is not going to shut down or anything like that. I have just been a bit busier than usual, (and a bit more stressful lol), as these are the final days before my three week vacation from work. As such I have a lot of things I need to finish before I can finally go on my break. This does mean that in the upcoming days I will in all likelyhood miss out on a few posts from you, for which I apologise in advance. The good news is that after the upcoming weekend I will have a lot more time on my hands. So I thought I would share some things that will be coming up in the next few weeks.

Upcoming Reviews

Movies

image

I have seen quite a number of movies that I haven’t been able to write a review for yet. As you have come to expect from me, these movies are all from very different genres. Reviews that will be coming up are: Kong:Skull Island, The Wailing, Lethal Weapon 2, A Company Man, War for the Planet of the Apes, Don’t Breathe to name but a few.

Anime

imageI am really running behind on watching anime, something I hope to catch up with in my upcoming vacation. I am currently in the middle of watching Corpse Princess, which so far has proven itself to be highly entertaining. After that I am really looking forward to Ergo Proxy, and finishing Black Bullet, which is also a very interesting series. You can expect reviews from all these three shows, and probably a few others that I just need to find time for.

Boardgames

imageTwo boardgames that I have been dying to try out, are the ones that are pictured above. Scythe especially has been gathering dust on my shelf for ages now,and hopefully my vacation will turn that around. Salt Lands is one of my newer purchases and looks like awesome fun, especially since it’s setting is in a Mad Max type of wasteland. Hopefully both games will hit the table soon, and when they do you can expect reviews for both of them.

Books and tv series

image

Ofcourse I can’t forget books and tv series here. I am currently reading the art and making of Alien Covenant, a beautifully illustrated book about the latest Alien movie. Speaking of Covenant, the fantasy epic The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever I finally plan to finish in the coming weeks as well. It is a massive 1100 page epic fantasy novel, which has been an amazing read so far. As far as television series go, the Korean drama Bad Guys I have almost finished and it has been a blast. Next on my to watch list is the spinoff series of The Walking Dead: Fear the Walking Dead, that cronicles the beginning of the zombie outbreak. All these and more will be reviewed in the coming weeks.

Final Thoughts

Now, as mentioned the coming days will definitely be very busy. In the weekend I will be hosting an Asian movie festival at my own home for my parents. It is a lot of fun to do, but also will need some planning from my part (that is selecting the movies and buying the food to get us through the weekend lol). And then there is ofcourse my work, which already is stressful to begin with, not only for these final few days. I will try and keep up with your blogs as best I can, but if I miss the occasional post, please do not bite my head off. I hope there are some things in this update that you are looking forward to. As always thank you for reading, and see you at the next post!

Special Features Presents: In the valley of Elah, a collaboration post with Acacia Aurora!

About four weeks ago I was approached by Acacia Aurora, also known as Auri, to do a collaboration post. This is the first time I am doing something like this, so not only am I excited for it, but I am also honored to have been given this chance. Thank you Auri! For those of you that have yet to discover her wonderful blog, you can visit her here . The blog is filled with a lot of great posts about manga and anime, and also her great art. It is well worth the visit, and ofcourse once you are there you should definitely subscribe.

Now her idea for this collaboration was very cool. We have picked a movie, and I have watched the first part of the film, while Auri watches the second part. Based on what we have seen we try to predict what happens, and has happened in the first or second part of the film. And then ofcourse we get to see if we have been right about our predictions! The movie that we have chosen is the drama In the valley of Elah, a 2007 movie starring the fantastic Tommy Lee Jones and Charlize Theron. The film is 1 hour and 56 minutes long, so I have watched the first 58 minutes. Please note that what follows will be full of spoilers, so if you have not yet watched this movie, you have been warned!

In the valley of Elah, part 1

This movie is based on a true story. Tommy Lee Jones plays the retired military police officer Hank Deerfield. His son Mike, who is a soldier, is about to return from a tour of duty in Iraq. But then things begin to get weird. Hank gets a call from the military that his son has not returned, or at the very least has gone missing, and they are about to file him as having gone AWOL. That is the military term for Absent Without Official Leave. Hank does not believe Mike would go off just like that, and is determined to find him. He at first travels to the base where his son was stationed, but that really does not help him much. The only thing he did receive was his son’s cellphone which contains a few videos made by his son in Iraq. The videos are very damaged though, and he has to enlist the help of a specialist in order to decrypt them.

image
That coffee must really be good for them to smile this much.

Hank next turns to the local police department. Once there he meets up with detective Emily Sanders, a role played by Charlize Theron. Unfortunately as Mike is in the military at first she does not want to help him, as the official procedure is to file a report with the military police. With Hank getting more desperate by the minute, things take a turn for the worse. A dismembered body has been found, heavily burned and mutilated. Soon the shocking confirmation comes that it is indeed Hank’s son. The body has been found on the terrain of the army, so technically it falls under the jurisdiction of the military. At least that is what is decided at first. The murder of Hank’s son appears to have been caused by a local drug cartel, and it seems that it looks like a drug deal that has gone bad.

image
Don’t look at me as if I am an idiot.

Hank does not believe for one second that his son was into drugs, and insists to be taken to the crimescene where his son’s body was found. The military police does not want to offer any kind of help, but then help comes from an unexpected corner. Detective Sanders takes Hank to the crimescene, and once there they find out that the body was moved. This means that it now becomes a police matter again. Emily takes the case to her boss, who pulls some strings to get the jurisdiction back to them. Meanwhile Hank has received a few decrypted videos from his son’s cellphone. Looking through them it seems that Mike was involved in something horrible in Iraq, but exactly what has not yet become clear.

image
I wonder what she is thinking about……

With the case now back in Emily’s hands, she tries to talk to to some witnesses, but is pretty much stonewalled by the military, saying that the matter is closed and they already have their statements. Hank and Emily finally begin to work together, and and are also getting some mutual respect for each other. Emily invites him over for dinner with her young son, and also to discuss their next move. After dinner Hank tries to read a bedtime story to Emily’s son…..and it is at this point that I hit the 58 minute mark!

My impressions

So far this movie has been incredibly entertaining. Tommy Lee Jones gives one of the best performances of his entire career as the desperate father who is determined to find out the truth. But Charlize also plays very well as the detective who is also despised by her colleagues. The atmosphere for this movie is very dark and gritty. I also love the way the story so far is having some really nice twists and turns, and really keeps you guessing what will happen next. I absolutely have to contain myself not to watch any further, but ofcourse I am not going to that. And now for the hard part!

image
Erm, I really don’t wish to intrude, but I think you might need a bigger flashlight.

My predictions for part 2

The big question is ofcourse: was Mike murdered by a local drug cartel? My guess is no. I think that Mike has seen something in Iraq that he was not supposed to see, and that he was murdered because of that. I also believe that this might have been done by members of his own unit. The stonewalling of the military throughout the movie so far, is making it clear to me, that they want to cover something up. It might be that  an attack in Iraq has gone bad, and they murdered civilians or something like that. I also think that both Hank and Emily will get in over their heads, and their lives will be in danger. In the end though, the truth will be revealed, and his son’s reputation restored. Emily will also finally get the respect she deserves from her colleagues, because of solving the case. Hank, though full of grief, will be able to move on and find peace. Well…at least that is what I think will happen. Let’s see if I am correct, or completely wrong. Auri: over to you! You can find out what happens next by reading Auri’s post, which you can find here.

Blog Update

Hello everyone. As some of you might have noticed there has been a lack of activity on my part. Both on publishing posts and reading and responding to posts from your own blogs. Well, the reason for this was that I have been quite ill the past few days with a very nasty type of flu. I had little to no energy and have spent most of the time in my bed, not even bothering to watch any movies,anime or tv series. (Yes I know, it’s when that is starting to happen that the alarmbells should go off). Today is the first day that I feel at least a little bit better, so I hope to catch up on all of the posts that I have missed and responding to them in the coming days. This might take me a while, as I still don’t feel quite like my old self, but I promise to get to your posts as soon as I can.

Animecon 2017

image

Next weekend I will be attending the 2017 edition of Animecon. This Dutch event takes place in The Hague, and as the name suggests there will be a lot of Anime to watch. But this con has more things to offer such as a lot of workshops, a gaming room, various Asian forms of food, a dealer room, and a couple of Asian films to watch. Most notably the Korean box office hit Train to Busan will be one of the movies that will be shown there, a film that I have been looking forward to immensely. You can expect a report from this event after that weekend.

Upcoming Reviews

image

As mentioned I am behind with pretty much everything at the moment, so I hope to publish at least one or two reviews the coming days. It all depends on whether or not  this annoying bug, can finally be defeated by my army of soldiers that have been training for this job for years. Yes…right. You can expect the following reviews to hit my blog in the upcoming weeks.

There is this little Animeseries that has been creating quite a buzz the past few months called Yuri on Ice. Maybe you have heard of it. I only have two more episodes to watch, but just to put your minds at ease, I absolutely loved it. The classic 1982 horrormovie The Thing is also up for a review. I will be doing a post for the Legendary Encounters Alien Deck Building Game as well. This one will be written especially for Madame Vintage. If you have yet to discover her absolutely incredible blog, click on the link and subscribe. She is a wonderful and kind hearted soul, who writes truly terrific reviews on movies both classics, and beyond. Something that is a first for my blog is a cooperative post that I have worked on together with Acacia Aurora. I am not going to give away yet what the post will be about or what we have planned, but it was a really fun idea on her part. I have been honored to have been given the chance to get to work on it, and please do click on the link provided to check out her great blog as well.

Other things you can expect to be covered in the upcoming weeks are the anime series Hundred and Kids on the Slope, the Korean drama series Bad Guys and Pinocchio, the movies Deep Star Six, Wonder Woman and the second part of the Resident Evil movie franchise, as well as a book review of the Back to the Future Ultimate Visual History. And ofcourse there will be some other stuff that usually comes up when browsing through Netflix or Crunchyroll. As always thank you for reading, I’m off to join the fight against the flu bug.

A special thank you to Weekend Otaku.

It has now been almost a year since I started blogging. To say that I have been having fun throughout this period is really an understatement. One of the most rewarding things about running this blog, is that I have met a lot of very interesting and kind people. Even though we might never meet in real life, it has been a true blast exchanging thoughts with everyone.

A few weeks back, one of the coolest events that I have so far experienced was a rewatch feature on the blog of Weekend Otaku. All during April he featured the incredible Animeseries of Your Lie in April on his blog, and each day an episode was reviewed on which everyone could respond. Little did I know that there was also a contest for this feature with actual prices to be won. To my big surprise I was one of the winners, and even ended up receiving the first price. Today I received it in the mail (see the pictures down below), together with a very kind note, and I just had to find a way to express my gratitude. So what better way, than to write a blog post. I truly am incredibly humbled by the kindness in sending such a wonderful present. Truly I can’t thank you enough 😊 For those of you who are not yet following Weekend Otaku’s wonderful blog, please do so now. Just hit the link above, and subscribe.

Weekend Otaku, this post is for you! Keep writing those wonderful posts of yours, it has been a blast to follow your blog 😀

Now the challenge for this tag is to describe movies in six words, no more, and no less, and do it in a creative way.

My movies in six words

  • Aliens: Man versus Aliens, game over man
  • Saw: The nightmare version of Home Improvement

The Versatile Blogger Award

Before I start this post, I want to apologise for taking so long to finally get around to this one. I always find it incredibly humbling to get an award for my blog, and I was actually nominated twice for this one.

The first nomination I received from Sophiethestark. Now if you have not yet seen her blog, or her many comments on other blogs, seriously where have you been all these months (just kidding ofcourse). Her blog is absolutely amazing though, and she has always been  very supportive of my own blog. Moreover she always has a kind word to say about posts you publish, and it truly amazes me that people spent their precious time doing that. So, if you are not yet following her blog, hit that subscribe button now. And ofcourse, thank you so much Sophie.

The second nomination I received from Alli who runs an amazing blog called Wormalblog. Now, the term Versatile pretty much falls short regarding her blog. She blogs about an enormous range of different topics, and she is a truly sweet and kind person to talk to. So I guess you know what to do, right? Just hit the link button and subscribe. I promise you won’t regret it. And ofcourse a big thank you for you as well Alli, for nominating me for this award. It really is awesome!

7 Things about me

Well, this is really getting to be a very difficult question to answer. Having received two awards where I already shared 7 things before, I am pretty much running out of things to say that you don’t already know. But let’s see if I can find some new things that are not too erm, boring I guess is the right word?

1. My favorite alltime science fiction movie is Aliens. (I am not counting Star Wars, because that is a franchise and in my opinion a whole league of it’s own lol). As for Aliens, I have seen that movie so many times, that I have pretty much lost count and almost know it by heart.

image

2. I am more happy staying at home, than going outside. Then again with the enormous amount of hobbies that I invest my time in, I am never bored. Well…..almost never.

3. I can at times be an impulse buyer. If I happen to see a movie or tv show, or even a cool advertisement for something, I can be very easily persuaded to buy stuff I don’t really need. Which pretty much explains the enormous backlog I have.

4. I can occasionally cry when I see a movie. Yes, I know I am a guy, but I am not ashamed to admit it. It does not happen very often though, mind you.

image

5. I really like handing out compliments. It is receiving compliments that is way harder to accept. I think that is a thing I will always continue to struggle with, and something I will never grow comfortable with.

6. There is one novel that I have read that literally kept me up at night, because I could not put it down (it was so good). That novel is called The Elfstones of Shannara by Terry Brooks. It was at 4 o’clock at night that I realised it had become very late indeed.

7. I have an irrational fear of wasps. As soon as there is one close to me, I turn into a screaming idiot, and try to run away as fast as I can (while avoiding stumbling over my own feet, furniture ot whatever else might be close by)

The honorable nominees

Just as it is getting harder to find seven new things about myself, it also getting hard to find people who have not yet been nominated for this award. That said, the following blogs definitely deserve it, so go check them out, if you are not already following them.

1. Soneawrites a fantastic blog that deals what Anime, movies, books, games, and all kinds of other cool stuff. The blog layout is seriously cool looking, and the posts are also very enjoyable to read.

2. Heyitszel a wonderful blog that deals with all things anime, but does it in so many original ways that variety does not even cover it properly. For instance one of her recent features deals with architecture in anime, which is very cool and original. And she is also a very kind person to talk to.

3. Renxkyoko’s space another very cool blog that deals with so many different subjects that it is almost impossible to cover them all. Simply hit the link and check it out for yourself. I’m pretty sure you will find it to your liking.

4. Artistbybeauty a blog that I have not been following for very long, but which has already made a very lasting impression on me. There are so many different subjects on her blog, that it is always a surprise what will be next. Ranging from tutorials on how to make paper flowers, book reviews, games, and all sorts of other things, variety is exactly the right description for this one.

And that as they say, is that. Thank you for reading and see you at the next post.

 

One Lovely Blog Award 2

Sometimes, just sometimes, real life catches up to you. For those of you that have been following my blog for a while now, you might have noticed that the past two weeks I have been a little bit less active than usual. I have checked in with everyone’s blog where I could, but the posts for my own blog were a bit slower than normal. My apologies for that, but the past two weeks my thoughts were a little bit pre-occupied with other things. Hence the beginning, sometimes real life catches up to you.

Now, I am running behind on a few things, most importantly a few of you gave my blog a reward. I always appreciate this very much, and over the coming weeks I will try to catch up on these as much as I can, starting today. First up is the “One Lovely Blog Award” that was given to me by D-talks Anime. Now if you have not yet signed up to their blog, than I want you to stop reading this, hit the link and subscribe. Don’t worry, I will wait….All done? Oh, you want a reason to sign up? Well how about the fantastic posts on anime that are being published on their blog? They are always a pleasure to read, and more over it is really cool (and always a lot of fun) to exchange thoughts with them. Don’t take my word for it, just head over there and be amazed. D, I would almost forget, thank you so very much for this nomination, I really appreciate it a lot 😀

Seven things about little old me…

This being the second time that I have been nominated for this award, it was actually a bit hard to find another seven things to share. But…I came up with a few things regardless.

One: My favorite alltime book character is Raistlin Majere from the Dragonlance Chronicles written by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman (if you have yet to read these novels, track them down ASAP)

image

Two: My favorite food is any kind of Italian pasta.

Three: People have accused me of lying when I tell them that I don’t own a smartphone. This is no joke, I actually don’t own one, but I do have an IPad (see…I can be modern 😂😂)

Four: At times I have a real problem saying no to things. I always want to go out of my way to help people, but at times at the cost of myself. Oh well, I still would not want to have it any other way 😀

Five: My favorite horror serial killer is Jason Voorhees. Yes the friday the 13th movies are horrible, but in fact they are so horrible that I enjoy them so very, very much 😂😂

image

Six: I almost never get angry (no lie), but one thing that can really set me off is injustice. That is really a thing I can get angry over…(no I am not going to give an example in case I might get angry….and you would not like me when I get angry 😂)

Seven: I don’t drink alcohol. No not because I have any kind of morality issue with it, but simply because I don’t like the taste of the stuff. And I don’t need it to have fun at a party: You bring the fun with you right?

The nominees

Now this time, I am going to give the nominations to a few blogs that I have recently started to follow and have pretty much just started. Not only do I think that they deserve this nomination, but I also feel that they are really on their way to grow, but just need a little bit more spotlight. So…here we go:

Arsangeli Honestly, I almost can’t believe this blog so far only has nine people following it. (At least that’s what it says on the reader, so I could be wrong). There is some truly fantastic (anime style) art on display at this blog, and the amount of talent involved is simply amazing.

Hyoukablog  Anime reviews, amazing poems, this blog features it all. I think this blog is one of the more unique ones that I have started following, and I really like reading all those wonderful poems.

Brendarochelles Neverland Actually, this blogger isn’t new, she is in fact the first person I met when I started blogging. She used to have a different blog, but recently she has started up a new one, but still has way too less subscribers (At least in my opinion). Her blog features movie, anime,K-drama and book reviews which are a joy to read. Not only that, she is just one of the kindest persons you will meet, and it is always nice to talk to her about a review.

The comic vault One would almost not believe that this blog has started up just a few days ago, but it did. The blog looks seriously amazing and features very cool posts about all of your favorite superheroes. (And also the lesser known ones).

Just anime times This blog features a lot of reviews about my favorite genre of anime: Mecha Anime. The classics, but also the lesser known ones, the reviews are very insightful, and showcases animeseries that I haven’t even heard of before.

Palbableemotion what to say about this blog? How about a seriously cool blog, and a very kind person behind it all? I really like the style of the reviews that are posted (with pictures featuring the anime), and the posts themselves are awesome to read!

Toritsukamanga A really cool blog about the world of Manga and anime with a lot of great and fun posts. Even though I don’t read a lot of Manga, I still really enjoy reading the reviews on this blog.

Remyfool Okay, I admit it, I cheated a bit on this nomination, as this blog is not really new. Still, I have not been following this blog for very long, and we both came to the conclusion that we might have both been living under a rock for not noticing each other’s blog sooner lol. That said, this is another fantastic anime and manga blog, with a lot of fun and interesting posts to read.

So, that’s it for this post. As I have said I wanted to put a bit of spotlight on a few of the newer blogs out there, but in my opinion everyone that is taking the effort to start up a blog, or has been a veteran, pretty much deserves a reward. Blogging at times can be hard, but it is times like these, and interacting with all the wonderful people out there, that make it all worthwhile. See you next time! 😀

Thank you…..

So….it is almost Christmas, and I wanted to take this opportunity to make a kind of different post this time. In short I want to thank you: the people who have been reading my posts, have supported this blog in some way, given me support, in short all of you 😀

 A look back at the past….

image

It has now been a little over six months since I started this blog. My first post was for the Korean dramaseries D-day, and honestly I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I just figured one lazy sunday night, I would browse through the app store and see if there were any apps that allowed you to create your own blog. That is pretty much how I came across WordPress. Eventually (with the help of some all knowing You Tube videos) I created my website, and published my first post.

And now six months later, I am still writing and having a blast. And this is only because of you, the people who spent time at my blog. One of the most fun things about blogging is the incredible amount of wonderful people I have met along the way. I love reading other blogs (honestly there are so many good ones out there, that are seriously awesome), and interacting with people. That for me has been one of the great thing ever since starting this blog.

The future…..

image

So what’s next? The coming year I will continue to write posts, about everything that I have been writing about the past few months. So you can expect more Anime reviews (Psycho Pass, Steins Gate, Moribito are coming up, to name but a few), but also movies, books, boardgames, tv series, etc. With 2017 right around the corner, and so many cool things to look forward to, I hope to make next year even better.

So that brings me back to the beginning: Thank you all very much, for all the time that you have spent reading my posts, writing a response, or hitting the like button. You are all awesome and wonderful people, and without you, this blog would simply not exist. With Christmas coming up in just a day, I hope you will all have a great time. And even if you don’t celebrate it, have some great time off.

Thank you for reading, and see you at the next post! 😀

The Unique Blogger Award

Last week I was nominated for the second time for the Unique Blogger Award. Seriously people, I am pretty much getting stunned by all these awards. It is a really humbling experience, and as I am already a pretty shy guy, I am getting ever more shy by these awards 😂 Seriously though, I appreciate it very much. But first I want to thank D from Dtalksanime for nominating me for this award. If you like Anime and have not yet subscribed to D’s blog, than stop what you are doing, and subscribe now. His blog features fantastic and well written reviews and other fun things about the world of anime. And I do mean fun, because one of the things I really like is that often there is a great sense of humor written into the post, something I truly enjoy. All I can say is keep up the great and fantastic work you are doing with writing each post, and once again: thank you so very much 😀

image

The Rules

  • Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you
  • Answer the questions
  • In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award
  • Ask them 3 questions

D’s QuestionS

1. If there’s a zombie Apocalypse, would you rather become a zombie during the first wave of infections or survive (to possibly be eaten by zombies) ?

Well this one is easy: survive to be possibly be eaten by zombies. That last thing ofcourse will never happen as I have my friends Rick, Daryl and Michone to protect me. (Hopefully I don’t have to explain who these bad ass people are 😂😂) And ofcourse I would become a living arsenal of weapons myself in order to not let them bite me 😂 (The zombies that is, not Rick, Daryl and Michone)

2. Five anime you plan to watch

My “to watch list” has actually turned itself into a “to watch book”, so it features an endless wave of animeseries, movies and normal television shows. But since we are talking about anime, here they are in no particular order: Psycho-Pass (already started on that one, and boy is it amazing), Terror in Resonance, Steins Gate, Yuri on Ice (I have seen every blog raving about that one, so even though it is not my usual cup of tea, I will give it a try) and finally Vision of Escaflowne (yes I know it is a classic and I have already kicked myself about a 100 times for still not having seen it)

3.Your least favorite and favorite time of the day

This one is also easy to answer: I don’t have a favorite or least favorite time of day. I don’t care what time it is, I always have enough stuff to do (be it work or relaxing). As such I am active throughout the entire day except while I am sleeping, because at that point I am, erm sleeping (Duh).

My nominations:

I have recently started following a few new blogs, which are all unique in their own special way. Some of these have just started, and some of these are veterans. Every one of them deserves this award though, and are well worth checking out.

Wretchedanddivine

Cauthan

Howusefulitis

Paintdigi

Unimetv

Hyoukablog

Lethargicramblings

Kjtamusings

My Questions:

With the end of the year coming ever closer, I thought to make up at least two questions that kind of reflect on the upcoming holiday season.

  1. It’s almost Christmas. What will you be doing on that day?
  2. What things are you looking forward to the most for the upcoming year?
  3. My “to watch book” is almost to much to manage. How do you keep track of things to watch, and how do you select the next thing to watch?

 

 

 

One Lovely Blog Award

Okay, people seriously this is getting to be too much. In a very good, but humbling way 😀 To my surprise and delight, I got nominated for yet another award this week: The One Lovely Blog Award. I am getting overwhelmed by all the positive feedback that is shown for my small blog. But I really appreciate it so much. A very big thank you goes out to Two Happy Cats for nominating me for this one. If you are one of the people who has still to discover this lovely blog (pun intended), you are in for a treat. It features a lot of great reviews about Anime and Manga, but there are also a lot of laughs.(For instance the recent post “4 Manga I’d rather die than read again”.). It really is a great blog, so what are you waiting for:subscribe if you haven’t already 😀

7 Things About myself: 

1. I have watched Titanic 9 times in the Cinema (Yes the ship hit the iceberg every single time)

2. I one day hope to make a cruise on a luxury cruise ship (and avoiding icebergs while doing that )

3. Although I still manage to mask it very well, I can be really insecure at times

4. I have way too many hobbies, and as such always have way too little time on my hands

5. One of my alltime favorite animation series is Robotech

6. I have the utmost respect for Asian culture

7. I am afraid of flying (That is in a plane, not that I have any flying superpowers)
