Well, I’m a long time nerd and anime fan. I’ve been watching anime since before I even knew it was anime with shows like Transformers, Voltron, Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs and Samurai Pizza Cats. I seriously got into it during my first year of college when a roommate invited me to go see Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust at our school’s movie theater.
My father once told me that everyone enjoys music and and you can
always find at least one band in any genre that you can relate to and
enjoy. Because of that, music is the ultimate conversation starter and
you should at least check out every genre. I’ve taken that same
openness to anime and other things in life. My tastes in anime are all
over the place, as you can see in my watched anime list on AnimeVice, and while I don’t like every series in every genre, I enjoy content in every genre.
Music was and still is a huge part of my life. My mother was a music teacher so I grew up around instruments and was constantly getting dragged to workshops, choir rehearsals and equipment demonstrations all throughout my life. My father, as you can probably tell, was deep into consuming music, which had a major impact on me as well. Like anime, I can usually find at least one group in any genre to enjoy.
Around high school, I started making my own music (hip-hop) and over the years met and worked with a lot of artists and labels. The one that I put in the most work with would be Digital Atlanta and L Dash (a member of Digital Atlanta, along with Trevis T). The two of us were actually roommates at one time and all in all we’ve recorded a crap ton of content. Ultimately, I wasn’t able to make a career out of it, but the experiences of local touring, being treated like royalty at clubs, grinding one 14 hour sessions, and all of that good stuff are experiences that I’ll never forget and wouldn’t trade for the world. Plus, I still do music for fun when I’m the mood for it.
I’ve got a Bachelor’s degree in Managerial Science with a focus in Human Resource Management but right now I do freelance video editing for the DeKalb County School System. Haha, it’s crazy and unconnected, but that’s life for you. I think I’ll always be involved with something creative and artistic no matter where I’m at in my life.

It's So Hard to Say GoodbyeIt was between Mitsudomoe and Paniponi Dash, but Paniponi wins out on this one. For 26 episodes Paniponi delivered some of the most nonsensical comedy I've seen since Animaniacs, perhaps even trumping that series, which is a feat. Along with it's comedy it threw in healthy dosed of moe and goofy fanservice that always brought a smile to my face. I hope and pray that they do a season 2 eventually.
Wasn't Expecting ThatRio - Rainbow Gate has never really been a strong show when it comes to story. It's never even tried to pass itself off of as that, which made this episode even more enjoyable than I expected going in. The Back story of Rio, Rina and Cartia actually had me pretty interested. On top of that, they didn't sacrifice all of the good things about the show to do it.
You're Not as Suave as You ThinkMasato Aikawa takes the cake on this one. His flirting got him pummeled twice in this episode in grand fashion. One even involved a power fist. But hey, you've got to give him credit. He takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'. In real life he'd probably pull the most women if no other reason than he tries to pull the most women and eventually the math adds up. On top of that, he has no real concept of she's out of your league.
Creepy Old Pedophile From the Family Guy AwardThe last thing anyone wants to wake up to is some geriatric staring at him while he sleeps. Madara definitely takes this one home for the week. I don't remember 100%, but I think he actually just sat there and said, "I want to talk to you..." Yeah, no thanks.
This Isn't What It Looks Like, but It Should BeThe first thing that came into my mind during this scene was whoa, it's goin' down. This is what Kyon gave up when he reset the world back to lunacy rather than jumping down on Hinata-hot passive super freak Nagato.
