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”
Just a quick update to detail why posts from my blog have been coming at a somewhat slow pace for the last two months or so. I am currently back in school finishing my Bachelor’s in English and some of the time I spend mentally is either directly or semi-directly attributed to bettering/preparing myself for classes and assignments. Henceforth, the output of my blog may be a little on the slow side; my normal schedule is every two, sometimes three days, but lately it’s been anywhere from three to five days. I think I’m gonna try and keep it within the once-every-four-days category or quicker. So expect my blog to continue, though at a slower rate.
That said, thank you all for the continued support and I’ll be back either tomorrow or Thursday with a post years in the making. Enjoy your time-of-day!
This year’s Summer of Manga/Anime has come to a close and I’m ready to let the words fly with the strength I’ve used to keep them steady. Continue reading “Reflecting on The Summer of Manga/Anime 2018 + Future Plans”
Apologies for doing this completely out of the blue, but there’s something I need to get off my chest. Continue reading “An Impromptu 2018 Summer of Manga Announcement/Update”
Now that I have finished up the long-overdue series of Traveling Thoughts on Breath of the Wild, my attention can turn to the annual tradition of gorging myself on Eastern content. This year, a return to the printed form will be what’s on the menu, as the usual Summer of Anime moniker has shifted to the Summer of Manga. While the rules are roughly the same, I did add a little more to the total count from the last year I did this, so I should have a little more to strive for come tomorrow. For those who missed it, you can read these updated rules here.
The first title for the Summer will be everyone’s favorite adaptation to anime form, Pupa! Here’s to a successful season!
Concerning my annual Summer of Anime block that takes place between the first day of June and whenever I finish it (usually late-July, early-August), I’ve kept this in the dark for some time, but I’ve been planning for what to do this year since, well, the last one ended. You could say I’m a plan-addict. Continue reading “An Early 2018 Summer of “Anime” Announcement”
