I bumped into the anime network by chance. Had digital cable for the first time in 2008, and was checking out the on demand category when I saw TAN. It took me all of 3 minutes after that to be subscribed and watching 009-1. Aside from anime I like most things sci-fi, some american cartoons like Avatar and Invader Zim, and I watch a lot of PBS. By trade I'm a baker and a writer, though I try not to let my writing ability show online. In addition, I play in bands from time to time. My old band is here at http://www.myspace.com/fuknyroh if you want to hear me or see me. I read, mostly non-fiction political books or history. I enjoy conversation and intellectual exchange, really any opportunity to expose my rapacious wit. I play starcraft, but that's about it for video games these days.
wow uhhh right now? Hmmm... I guess I'm watching Tenchi for the millionth time tonight. Also forever rewatching ghost stories and evangelion. Watched Toradora three times now, think I'll have to put it away for a while. The new Spice and Wolf right now, Erin of the green eyes, Bleach (though i don't like it that much), Gintama, Kara no Kyoukai, Souten Kouro, and Canaan are all making new episodes but I get to watch one episode of each per week at best =/. Aside from that, I just try to watch every classic series I've never seen. Anime Planet and 4 chan provide me with plenty of fodder and decent enough explanations to keep myself occupied. Thank god Fry's has such an awesome anime section, and the proliferation of online services like crunchyroll make this a viable investment of one's time now.
Conventions I'm Attending this Year
there's a convention in my pants and you're all invited.
hey fuckers!!! =) (hi slowhand, thanks for editing me as usual)
haven't posted in a MINUTE, thought I'd drop by to express my delight in some of the choices TAN has made lately. HSotD is a bold step, and will pay big I predict. Golgo 13 is another great move and I can't wait. I saw some of the new golgo in japanese so i didn't understand a word, but god damn it looks good.
anyway, keep up the good work TAN. Still waiting on some dual monitor support (so it stays fullscreen while I work on my other monitor) in the flash player, but i'm not holding my breath 8[

Though now you have given me another tool of torture, force watching of K-on for days straight!
Please don't make me admit that I bought the first season on blue-ray.
Additionally, please don't make me admit that I watch anime in bad places that I would get in trouble for mentioning here. Needless to say, life would be much less interesting without livestream and CR (among other less reputable places).
I do spend thousands of dollars each year on DVDs and fan accessories though, so I'm not just a shitty fan. There is no apparatus to satiate my immense need for fresh anime (except CR and Funi simulcasts, which I patronize regularly), and thus like a crackhead I'm forced into the streets to find my next fix.
I'm sorry Kyo-ani that I ever doubted you. Please take me back.
I said some nasty things on this forum about Haruhi during the whole "endless eight" thing, and now I have to take it all back. Seriously, Haruhi may be the best anime ever made. I simply don't have words to describe the feelings I have right now after watching the movie. Haruhi has realized its potential as a story in this masterpiece (full on freaking masterpiece). It's one of the only times in my life where I can say the movie was better than the book (or manga). If you like haruhi, but dropped it over the endless eight thing, it's time to get back to it. I don't recommend you do what I did (I'm a bad person with bad habits that I fulfill in bad ways), but whenever this gets here, YOU MUST WATCH IT. WHY IS HARUHI SO FREAKING AWESOME?!?!?!?! Oh god I'm going to buy another haruhi PVC right now.
I seriously bro-fisted Kyon through my monitor at the end of this.
