How Everyone Became A Celebrity

If you have a social media account, chances are that you know what a “selfie” is. Chances are your twitter feeds, news feeds, and whatever other feeds you may have are littered with tidbits of personal information and self-made images of a private nature. In fact, it’s very probable that there are people in your friends list whom you’ve never met or talked to, about […]

Lawn mowers and AK-47s

Even if you have no interest at all in the world of warfare and weaponry, chances are you’ve heard of the legendary AK-47. And it’s hard not to. The rifle is everywhere – it’s probably the most common assault rifle you’d see in a video game or in a movie, and there have been countless references to it throughout modern day pop culture, due to […]

Let’s Take A Look At: Neon Genesis Evangelion

(Originally posted on my Quora blog.) I’m a relative newcomer to the medium of anime. As someone appreciative of a number of arts, however, I found that I had been wholly missing out.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and Modern Alchemy

(Originally posted on my Quora blog.) “The great flow that maintains the universe; call it the cycle of life, the course of nature – each one of us is just a small part of that part. One in the all. Yet without all the individual ones, the all can’t exist. This world flows by following grander laws that we can’t even imagine. To recognize that […]

Code Geass and the dissolution of nuclear weapons.

(Originally posted on my Quora blog.) (Spoiler Warning: This post will have spoilers, thus it assumes you’ve watched the entirety of Code Geass. It isn’t a post directly about the anime, though – nonetheless, it will discuss the anime’s ending.) I liked Code Geass.
