Yet another bio update. These things go out of date so quickly, or I'm getting old and beginning to understand why adults always complained about time moving too fast back when I was a nipper.

I'm currently working as a part-time cleaner to pay the bills, and more importantly buy more delicious vinyl records (for my favourite musical artists see here), whilst working at setting up my own business. I'm also a member of an experimental post-rock/electronica band Ghosts Wear Clothes which released an album, Threads, in the Spring of 2012.

Aside from anime, where my tastes range from cloyingly sentimental romances like Clannad to bleak, depressing arty shit like Monster, these are some of my favourite:

Books

Manufacturing Consent (N. Comsky and E. Herman), Beyond Chutzpah (N. Finkelstein), Gulag (A. Applebaum), A Song of Ice and Fire (GRR Martin), Lord of the Rings (JRR Tolkien), Frankenstein (Shelley), Harry Potter (JK Rowling) Testament of Youth (V. Brittain), Prince of Nothing (R.S. Bakker), Gentleman Bastards (S. Lynch), Gaunts Ghosts (D. Abnett), Mutual Aid: A Factor in Evolution (P. Kropotkin), My Disillusionment in Russia (E. Goldman), It (S. King)

Films

28 Days Later, A Very Long Engagement, Bladerunner, The Descent, Downfall, Four Lions, Gettysburg, Ladybird, Ladybird, Lord of the Rings, The Orphanage, Threads, Tokyo Sonata 

TV Shows

American Dad, Band of Brothers, Deadwood, Family Guy, Fringe, Futurama, Game of Thrones, Garrow's Law, House, Ideal, Misfits, QI, Ripper Street, Rome, Shameless, The Simpsons, The Walking Dead

Hey, sorry for MY delayed response. Lol. Hmmm... I might delay the watch of this show, then. Right now I have no time and thus very little patience. Moreover, I just finished watching Tatami Galaxy and Gosenzosama Banbanzai, both superb!!!! shows and I'm not in the mood to be disappointed. I remember getting stuck with Kanon and Winter Sonata gives me that kind of vibe.

Don't worry, I understand about being busy. Had a mad day myself although that mainly involved running around Norwich trying to get a costume together for a party tonight. And what did I come up with after about five hours? Some devil horns, a pair of red wings, and a stupid tutu. But all less than £3 so I am pleased.

Have a fun Halloween yourself, and if you do make it through Winter Sonata and it turns out awesome, give me a shout.

PS. WATCH GOSENZOSAMA BANBANZAI (if you love Oshii).

Hey ForgottenSon. So. You are watching Winter Sonata! That is on my list of things to check out (not sure if it's on my AP list, but it's there in my mind). Can you give me a quick impression of what you think? Hmm. Assuming you're even still active.

YoulikeMonkeyDustepicwin!!!!

/gives prize.

Also great to see Azumanga Daioh at the top of your list, and a shout-out for the absolute gem that is Majokko Tsukune-Chan. We got fairly similar tastes all told. Good stuff, good stuff.

/recommends Nodame Cantabile as a must-watch before vanishing into the night.
