Good time of day to you all. This post serves as a reminder (perhaps to myself) that the Merry Days of Anime™ block shall continue for a second year (or season?) in 2020. I’m pretty excited about it!Continue reading “I’m Gonna Do That Merry Days of Anime Thing Again”
I never really associated myself with sunshine, but someone sees me as a suitable ray of vitamin D replenishment. I have never been so honored. Thank you very much to Irina for the tag in her recent Sunshine Blogger post. Without her, I would probably remain as the moon or something. I’m not really sure how to open this post.

Yes, I have returned to the blogging space. Yes, I returned just to ask a question.
Hello, everyone. I hope you all are doing well considering the circumstances of the world.
I am writing this update to inform everyone that my output will be (and has been, frankly) slowing down tremendously in the coming days/weeks/months/etc. I have recently gotten my part-time job back, and my work with KeenGamer has increased due to larger responsibilities and number of writers sending in articles. As such, I will not have the same amount of time to dedicate to writing articles for the blog.
This is not a death sentence, nor is it the beginning of the end. I am simply too preoccupied with adjusting to a busier lifestyle, combined with a relative lack of motivation to write about anything when my interest in games is at a high point. As these things tend to go, I will probably find myself re-invigorated with other subjects in due time, and my desire to write will follow.
With that said, I’m unsure of when I will write again for the blog and what I will write about. All I can ensure is that it will be something that I will want to write on. Maybe football; haven’t done much on that recently.
Thank you for your time. Have a great day.
I adore Winter. I love the quiet ambience as snow accumulates onto the ground. The stillness of the air and the growing desire to cozy oneself in warmed isolation away from the frozen outdoors, as if to not disturb its careful process. Some may look at the cover gif and see some Gothic picture in waiting, but to me, it’s almost spiritual in its beauty. October is Halloween, November is Thanksgiving, and December is Christmas—white, frosty, cheery Christmas vibes all the way through.
Since the demise of my cherished Summer of Anime block, I’ve done nothing of a similar vein for the anime medium since. This year, that will be different. I’ve decided that I’m going to be watching anime—a lot of it—throughout the month of December. Why? Because December is magical and so is anime. And I want to.

And because I made the first post about it, four exclamation points is the official™ amount necessary!!!! Continue reading “Announcing the “Visualist x100!!!!” Continuation”
Five days after I acknowledged that I’ve become somewhat disheartened with the quality of my recent posts (a few have been good, a few others not so much), I’ve come to conclude that some days I’m literally forcing things out prematurely. This whole “publish things daily’ was a great challenge for some time, but in my current juncture of life, my motivation has dulled to the preference of other activities. Basically, I’ve run out of solid ideas that I want to write, instead opting to write for the sake of it, which is no bueno. Continue reading “Writer’s Block Takes Hold – An Update”
There are times when my writing does not come up to the standards that I set for myself as a competitive perfectionist. The most recent example of this was my last article, detailing my thoughts on the latest Star Wars: Episode IX trailer. In it, much was said about how big corporations are run by Satan and that the existence of anything for profit is bereft of the creative soul. Upon publishing, I immediately looked back on it and thought, “Man, how often have I said all this before?”
Many times. Such is the identity I have established for myself the past six years. Continue reading “Coming to Terms with Your Blogging Identity”
To those who have been visiting the blog on a semi-regular basis, you may have noticed that it’s seen some changes in the past couple weeks. The layout has changed to feel more modern (which means more bold) and the content has become more varied in type, both from a topical standpoint and a medium standpoint. I’ve finally found a groove in which this blog can finally be about a place for visual media (and football) and not just anime, which is something I’m immensely fond of. On top of that, the content has been rolling in at a rate unheard of for this blog outside of my annual March of the Movies block (the next of which is coming soon). I wanted to take the time to address these sudden changes. Continue reading “Asserting My Writing Efficiency – A Poorly-Veiled Blog Update”
