Right: I'm going to give this blogging thing another shot. My plan is to do some kind of 365-in-365 thing with a post a day.

The hope is that they'll be at least interesting, but consider this post a warning about the likely content.

I ran an anime news/reviews/blog website from 2004 to 2008 called aNIme (now offline, but still embarrassing me on the Wayback Machine). I've been pretty much entirely out of the loop on anime since moving to Dundee, but just before Christmas I signed up for the free trial for Crunchyroll in an effort to catch up. I've watched some really great shows already (as well as some pretty terrible stuff), and will be talking about those in greater detail than I should be comfortable with.

My new year's resolution for 2013 is to not buy any videogames*, but with enough on my Steam backlog, a few games I'm hoping to replay and the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection I should have enough to keep me going. I expect I'll bring those up, months behind everyone else.

I'm guessing TV and movies will also show up, and possibly some random ramblings about web development if I can't think of anything more interesting.

I used to be ridiculously prolific with long, reasonably-researched news/politics rants on LiveJournal (years ago), but I'm in a less mind-numbing job now and won't have time to read up and fact-check myself, so those will be few and far between. Not sure if that's a bad thing.

I'm also going to be really lazy and count this as my first entry.

*An exception is to be made for The Last of Us, although that was before I remembered BioShock Infinite and a second season of The Walking Dead; I guess I'll have to hope they're gifts at some point.
