So it’s that time of year again where I am legally obligated to point out how long this particular blog has lasted. It’s now reached the point where in many nations I would now be qualified for citizenship for simply being able to hold down a job and not commit any crimes that would see me deported. The caveat to that being that I’m working in the aniblog fast food joint washing dishes while others who emigrated with me are now captains of industry.* That’s enough for the depressing bits in this post (and the many other drafts that are far worse than that you will not see).

Overall, it could probably be considered a mediocre week. Continue reading The Week That Was January 8-14
Just to prove that I do watch shows that have aired in the last 5 years, I’ve started a new weekly feature. Continue reading The Week That Was January 1-7
