I also love everything Warren Ellis, notably Transmetropolitan. I'm
a sucker for SF, cyberpunk, speculative future fiction, that sort
of thing. The present is boring in comparison to the infinite
promise of the future.
I don't watch that much anime considering my Japanophile status,
but it's still more than most people watch. It usually involves
robots. Or it's Attack On Titan or Sword Art Online or something.
If you watch Avatar / Korra we can be friends. I will make Frisky
Dingo and Archer references with reckless abandon until the day
Adam Reed slaps my entire existence with a copyright infringement
lawsuit. Game of Thrones and Bob's Burgers are cool, and so are
lots of other things.
Also I have an obnoxious computer with a dual-monitor setup and one
of those monitors is a 50 inch TV and it's mounted to my wall. So,
I kinda play a lotta vidyagames. Rarely fps, usually rpg or hack
and slash things. Whatever gives me an excuse to hit shit with a
sword. Lately it's a borderline obscene amount of Dark Souls or
Demon's Souls. I have a problem.
I skipped over more things than I could hope to count and this is
still way too long. Just talk to me about this stuff, I could go on
for eternity about media in its various forms.
