My name's Jesse. I'm strange, extremely socially awkward and an ex-cynic. Putting anything but ketchup on burgers is heresy. My hobbies are always changing, so there's sometimes long lulls in my anime watching.

Here's a cool picture of Hank Hill:

I rate animes based on how much I enjoyed them. Aspects such as animation, characters, audio, etc. mean nothing if I didn't enjoy it overall. By far, what I care about most is the plot. Also, I tend to research animes before watching them, as to avoid turds. Once upon a time I went and saw a movie called Dream House in theaters -- This taught me the importance of reviews. However, the side-effect of this is that most of my ratings will always be above the 6/10 threshold.

I noticed that the sheer amount of choices in my life was paralyzing me with procrastination, thus I devised a system for choosing activities. This obviously also relates to anime, so if you suffer from a similar first world problem, please keep reading:

Select five anime that you've been meaning to watch for awhile and put them on a list. Upon doing this, use a list randomizer (I recommend random.org) to select which one you will watch. Upon finishing the chosen anime, you need to put a new anime onto your list to bring the total to five again; this is very important, as it keeps the choices random and not expected. Keep repeating this cycle, and you'll slowly but surely tackle the backlog! Everything you put on your list will eventually be chosen. I recommend choosing shorter anime with this system, as being locked into a large time commitment via a random number generator may be a little daunting and discouraging.

I also agree ^^ hum, this year I was supposed to have composition classes but as I am not going to attend those classes this year I still don't know how I would be at it, good or bad, I don't know x)

School days badge? I've watched school days, why don't I have a school badge as well? o.O

oh but that has to do with the habit, I've been playing for about 10 years so I'm so used making different things with my hands that it's completely natural now, but of course that at the begining when I started playing it must have been the same for me (although I don't remember it very clearly o.O). But yeah, hearing what you're playing makes me feel so good, interpreting the music in different ways, playing it the way I like, I really enjoy playing piano ^^

 

nope, there are times when I'm at the piano playing random notes trying to make a melody but it's everything so bad xP

oh I agree with you, there are musics in which they even seem like they are breathing, it's so cool, and some musics really seem like they are being sang with feelings, it's really nice ^^

 

oh, well this period I'm studying this 2 songs:

I am the ones that chose them, since I'm in a high level there are more diversified and interesting things to play x) those don't seem so classical like

yeah it was nice, and I got emotional when I heared that music in the music box that the girl had *.*

 

oh and there is a program, you can buy it x) I think I wouldn't like to buy it, I just like listening to the musics, but yeah, I would at least like to try it one day, it must be kind of interesting ^^

haha, yeah I know what you are talking about, it's kind of weird that someone would pay to see someone that doesn't exist singing xP but I think I kind of understand since I really like vocaloids as well :)

yeah, I play piano ^^ and I really like it, I play classical music though, although I do play some anime musics sometimes :)

oh Elfen Lied, I liked the opening and I even have it in my mp3 but it's not really one of my favs

 

oh vocaloids are like singers that were made by a computer, their voices are made in a computer, the most known vocaloid is Hatsune Miku, which is this character:

she has a lot of songs that I like such as 'koi wa sensou', 'sweet devil', 'nozomi', 'deep-sea girl', try listening to one of these, as there are a ton of musics and they are really different from each other it's almost certain that you might find one that you like x) there are also other vocaloids that I like such as Megpoid GUMI, Kagamine Rin, Kagamine Len...
