a clockwork orange Be sure your copy has a glossary, you're going to need it. You know, I can't remember if I used a glossary when I read it. I don't think I did; after a while, the meaning of most words became clear to me as they were used repeatedly in certain contexts. In any case, y...

I dreamed that I was in a Korean restaurant and I wanted some food. There was a lady at the counter, who I asked to bring me something to eat. She went back into the kitchen for a few minutes and seemed to be conversing with the cooks inside. After some time had passed, she returned with a huge slab...

I've never really understood the appeal of figures. They remind me too much of the dozens and dozens of dolphin, tiger, snowmen, ducks and teddy bear knick-knacks (including one curious object that appears to be a dolphin being ridden by a teddy bear in a dress) that my mother keeps line...

I've seen it, but it didn't strike me as anything much and skipped it when I watched the rest of the series. Don't get me wrong, it's not Bach or anything like that, I just think it's very pretty and gentle; its greatest strength is that it fits the series so well. Part of it is...

I'm very surprised that Haibane Renmei's OP hasn't gotten a single mention in this thread. Do people who like Evangelion not watch Haibane Renmei? That's sad. It's the best anime ever made, in my opinion. I think a lot of people on here would like it, too. In my opinion, Haibane ...

Fallout 3 is on my list of games to buy when I get money. Forgot to put I got a remote control tank from Gears 2 at Best Buy for $30. It's on Amazon.com for $35 right now (PC version). That's pretty cheap for a new game, and since it's $35 you wouldn't have to pay shipping, ...

I went to Ohayocon '08 and I may go next year as well. It was the first big con that I ever went to (previously I had only gone to Tsubasacon, a small anime convention in West Virginia), and it was a very enjoyable experience.

Honestly, no, I've never had any college textbooks that I felt were shitty in that manner. About the worst I can say for any of them is that my European history textbook wasn't very engaging, despite the fact that I love history. That was an issue with the style of the text, though, not the ...

I think that as far as all-out sex appeal goes, Kensuke's got it in spades. When it comes right down to it, it's just a fairly well established fact that all women secretly crave a bespectacled dork. This is absolutely true. Some will profess this openly, you'll find that others are just...

If you can get yourself off, that makes you a bisexual. Well, according to my own twisted sense of logic, anyway. I still stand by South Park's mantra, "We're all a little gay." Deny it all you want. Deep down inside, you're a member of a filthy ape whose closest living relati...
