The Restaurant of Death: Glendale Olive Garden

Yesterday was Liz’s birthday, this was a bit unfortunate since it was also a work day. We made the best of it however and decided to go to one of those places that is generally a nice simple destination: Olive Garden. We’ve been to the Glendale Olive Garden a few times in the past, all but recently it wasn’t a …

Do Social Networks hurt your Social Life? (Bonus OTTO ~ Social Justice Warriors & Immigration)

This is going to be a bit of a difficult subject to broach. Because its going to cover two anecdotes, which aren’t themselves the problem, but I’ll then be covering the topics of those anecdotes. To talk about Immigration is one thing, to talk about Social Justice is another, but to try and cover both in a single entry? That’s …

VS: Consumerism Vs. Capitalism

I would like to start a new series called “VS” that basically looks at two words and examines what they mean. This won’t be the official websters dictionary definition but I would like to think that after reading these you, dear reader, might be interested in changing your own usage of them. There are no expectations that these changes will …

Reviews: Witch and the Hundred Knight ~ Swing, a Miss, and a Self-Inflicted Injury.

Witch and the Hundred Knight is a bit of a bitter pill. On the one hand it has a diablo style gameplay that I find very rewarding. The protagonist (the terribly named Hundred Knight) is adorable. The animation style is pretty good (one of the things that interested me in it). The music and sound effects are forgettable, minus the …

Reviews: Eden of the East ~ Is this apple poison?

Eden of the East has one of the best first episodes of any Anime I’ve ever seen in my entire life. The writing is absolutely perfect, the animation style is some of the best alongside greats like Miyazaki. The music and sound choices are all absolutely perfect and the dubbing, that thing that makes White Japan fans cringe, is so …

How do you quit the internet without sounding melodramatic? (Hint: You don’t.)

I am getting so tired. I sometimes forget why I don’t interact with other human beings anymore. I’ve regressed from Facebook, Reddit, IMGUR, and most of the video game websites. You might think I’m suffering from some kind of degenerative disorder and that this is leading to an ever worsening introversion. But I’m arguably lucky that this is not actually …

Reviews: Kill La Kill ~ Real Damn Good.

I’m not very fond of Anime. It’s not a philosophical thing or any kind of derision towards cultural differences. I quite like Japan and I’m often first to defend them when people say “Oh Japan” from some kind of strange position of superiority. Where we fetishize violence and firearms they seem to fetishize sexuality, the latter of which seems to …
