Ladies and Gentlemen, Merry Days of Anime 2021

This post’s title was, in fact, inspired by the Daniel Craig introducing The Weeknd meme.

When I made up this impromptu block of anime-viewing festivities, I half-wondered if it would end up being a yearly thing. Here we are in year three; I think it’s safe to say that it’s here to stay. Probably helps that I don’t watch much anime nowadays, ensuring that by this point I’m actually willing to indulge for a little while. Join me as I go back to the topic that used to be my blog’s central focus.

July Will Be a Month Full of Odes to Twitch Streamers

Hello, everyone. A short post today, aimed at further elaborating on what the title already conveys. All throughout the month of July, I will be writing Ode-type posts to Twitch streamers I have since become enamored with and/or believe deserve shouting out.

For those unaware, I have written about my newfound experience with Twitch before, and it has become a comfortable part of my day to listen in to a few streamers daily. Does this end up filling up my day from beginning to end? Generally, yes. Does it get overwhelming? Generally, yes. Nevertheless, many streamers have become important to me, and I felt the desire to showcase my affection through the only means I know I’m moderately good at: writing.

I will be writing a post of varying size every other day in July, starting with July 1st. So July 1st, then 3rd, then 5th, and so forth. Whether or not I do this up until the 31st is currently undetermined, though it’s guaranteed to at least get to the 27th.

And for those who want a slight taste of what these “Ode-type” posts will look like, you can take a look at my latest Ode-type post. (Wow, it’s been nearly two years…)

Thank you all, as always, for your continued support and time. I hope my unfiltered affection manages to make for quality blogging content.

Commencing the 2021 March of the Movies

For those unaware, four years ago I started an annual tradition called March of the Movies, where I watch a film every day for the month of March and write reviews for them on the blog for people to peruse. The premise will be the same as it was last year (and most other years): I watch a film at any part of a particular day and will release some sort of review, whether fully detailed or comically short, in that same specific day.

The Oh So Fun Blog Update

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’m Going to Watch a Lot of Anime in December (of 2019)

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.

Writer’s Block Takes Hold – An Update

onhghy5

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”
