There is no emotion, there is peace.

There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.

There is no passion, there is serenity.

There is no chaos, there is harmony.

There is no death, there is the Force.

—The Jedi Code

Peace is a lie, there is only passion.

Through passion, I gain strength.

Through strength, I gain power.

Through power, I gain victory.

Through victory, my chains are broken.

The Force shall free me.

—The Sith Code

The words above sum up the beliefs of the two eternally battling sides of the Force (and the world itself). The Jedi and the Sith. The light and the dark. The good and the evil.

I personally believe that the truth lies somewhere in between. Noone can exist completely without emotion, without passion, feeding solely upon harmony and serenity. The same goes for living only through passion, power and stength. We, humans, simply can't live on the edges for all of our lives. We may choose sides from time to time, but eventually we come to understand that all these notions are trivial. We do the best we can, for the sake of ourselves and the ones that we love and care for. Ultimately, we are neither white nor black. We are gray, and that is what makes us humans... Boooh yah! I rock right? RIGHT?? ...Geekness. Gauge. Maxed. Out.

After that little contemplation on "geekosophy", let me tell you a few things about myself. As you've prbably already figured out I am a fan of the Star Wars franchise. I completely adore the universe that the series revolves around, its people and ideas. Hyperspace travel, hundreds of different planets and solar systems, other intelligent forms of life... You get the point. (but the truth is I'm a total geek [keyword] for Jedi vs Sith battles and lightsabers.. :p Hell yeah!!)

Aside from being a Star Wars fan, I am also an ageless university student from Greece, hoping to get a degree in Electronic Engineering someday. I'm currently near the end of my nth year and things are a bit rough with the tight schedule and the many many courses. Furthermore, I have started taking lessons on classical piano, hoping to study at the Berklee College of music someday ...yeah. Apart from dreaming, I spend most of my time per day either studying at the conservatory or whatever.

My interests are (other than watching anime and reading manga of course!) playing the guitar/piano/jamming/etc, listening to mostly rock music (although I have recently started obsessing over classic, blues and jazz tunes), reading (novels usually), bowling, table tennis, basketball, video games, overclocking... Almost everything a normal person in his twenties has an interest for. Furthermore, I really enjoy going out with my friends, watching films, playing DnD (oh yeeeaaaah!) traveling, eating pizza, souvlaki and spicy food. And cycling. And-

Soooo... Am I a geek or am I a geek? Geek, going once. Geek, goi- ...Anyway, these are a "few" things about me. Anyone who's more interested (yeah, there could be someone/female who likes SW and anime and video games and rock music...  *gentle cough* let's just continue) just leave a message... ;)

The cake is a lie.

.... and a happy new year ^_^!!! Guess i gained at least 2 kilos the last few days eating fried flourballs with apple (our traditional food for newyear xD), hahaha! What kind of food tradition do you have in greece with newyear? Anyway both christmas and newyear were fun, only too many family meetings *sigh*, i was starting to really miss my beloved anime! Sounds like you've been having a pretty good time too, and lol, i know of the final fantasy fever, i don't play it myself but my brother gets really addicted to it from time to time, when he's momentarily tired from one piece ;)!

Yeah I thought i was not the kind of person to like sports anime at all, at least i hate sports in real life but this anime was nothing short of A-W-E-S-O-M-E xD. I hope you'll be watching it too ^_^!

One Piece.... yeah you are right, i should probably dive into it again soon, my brother has been bugging me about it too every day since i took a break from One Piece xD. Every day he grins to me with this determined face telling me that i have to watch one piece and to stop *watching all those stupid girly drama series like Clannad* (LOL).

(And italian? Wow xD you're like the first one on earth ever to compare dutch with italian.... the rest of the world thinks it's more like german (which is kinda right because they are similar but i hate german so i'll have to disagree))

Oh and your viewing rate is getting really awfully slow compared to mine *proud face* ;)! You have to keep on watching or you'll never get close to my 2300 eps ^_^! Come on, you have to set yourself a goal, why not beating me, it's fun! (lol).

Anyway, this is the end again of my huge comment, i hope hajime no ippo: new challenger ep 22 has finally loaded now, so see ya ;)!

Ah, you and me being shounen fans, i'm currently watching Hajime no Ippo and despite my genuine hate for virtually everything that reeks of sports, and despite my neverchanging lack of interest in idiotic sports like boxing, I'm completely adoring this anime. It's one of the most addictive things i got into lately ^_^! I watched 67 eps in 2 days *slaps herself*, it was a bit much but no overkill, it's great :D! I bet you'll like it too!

Yeah, you have a good christmas too ^_^! In holland we actually celebrate the 2nd christmas day (today) too, i don't know how that is in other countries but at least here it's still christmas ;)!

Oh about the vid, lol, I kinda reacted in the same fashion when i first saw it, it's incredibly harsh. That is, until i found out that it's a sketch, in other words, the whole thing is entirely fake ^_^. That's when i completely cracked up xD... Maybe i should've told you sooner. Anyway, what do you think of my language :p?

And about the others, glad that you enjoyed them! LTE is one of the favorite bands of a good friend of mine, I generally dislike their songs because it's too rough for me, but i adore this particular song of them. Oh, and can you believe that I'm actually studying the silly clarinet piece xD? I must be completely out of my mind.

If i happen to come across another marvellous vid on youtube i will certainly let you know, but as you said, for now we've both had enough, this is an anime site after all, not a youtube site ;)

You a shounen fan... *big shock xD*... Yeah i suspected as much xD, you loving adventure, action and comedy, and not to forget One Piece (and in lesser degrees, Bleach and Naruto S ;))

And by the way it's good that you recovered, i was missing my One Piece buddy xD!

Ah, the comment about Code Geass was too soon xD It's starting to get pretty awesome at the moment, so I withdraw my earlier words xD

Hahaha, right back at you! Those guitarists are amazing, it's a miracle what they can actually do with their instruments. I guess you are a huge fan of them, being a guitarist yourself too ;)! There are clarinetists out there who can do such sick stuff with their instrument as well, i kinda worship them too ^_^! About the funny vid, it was really nice xD Good to see the scepticism involved with it!

To reply to your greek vid, i have a vid here for you in dutch. Actually, it's dutch with a belgian dialect, but it's still dutch. So this is the language i speak in everyday life, moreorless, apart from the belgian accent, which i dont xD. Don't worry, i looked for a version with english subs, it's one of the funniest vids on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYlckOkcLsY&feature=related.

This is a dude doing some genuinely sick things with his violin http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JkuzKqHDaI  

This is a piece for clarinet in which you have to break down your clarinet till nothing is left, but still keep playing. It sounds easy but it's amazingly difficult xD I'm currently studying to master this piece as well... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=impnUPEaKUE&feature=related

And just as a dessert, I wonder if you've ever heard of Dream Theater and Liquid Tension Experiment? I don't generally like their music but this one is amazingly good, both the piano and the guitar. Enjoy ^_^! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYYOtEZeQl0&feature=related

Anyway, just started watching Code Geass, it's pretty nice, but not really as good as the ranking on AP suggests (it's 5th in ranking).

Lol. Almost looks like a huge-comment-contest.
