I particularly like Assyriology (study of ancient Mesopotamia), card games such as Poker or BlackJack, pool, beer tasting, watching laughably bad movies and animes.
Dumuzi [Dumu.zid means rightful son] is a deep-seated God in Sumerian religion. Previously Lord of Bad-Tibira, he progressively absorbed personalities of Ishtaran, Amaushum-Galanna (spirit of the date palm's bud), Alla, Ningishzidda and mostly Damu, another deity of vegetation, strangely depicted as a child while Dumuzi is always shown as an accomplished breeder and well-grown man.
In Sumerian royal list, Dumuzi is credited as the Shepherd King, the 5th one of antediluvian times with 36 millenniums of reign. After the Deluge, he's even listed as the King of Ku'ara.
His life's main episodes are his sacred wedding with Inanna (Ishtar) and his death.
He has to decease to counterbalance Inanna's resurrection. At that time, she was trying to take over her sister Ereshkigal's kingdom and she ended up impaled on a hook. Her redivivus was strictly necessary as every single beings of Earth ceased to reproduce the pattern of Love inspired by her very existence...
Inanna chose her husband among the divine family because he didn't mourn her death. Of course, Dumuzi refused to make up for a failed conquest, so he attempted to escape his demonic pursuers with Utu's help (the Sun God) who transformed him into multiple creatures to outrun them, and his sister Geshtinanna, who offered her farm as refuge. However, the Shepherd god was somehow arrested and then sentenced by the Annunakis to go to Hell for Autumn and Winter, while his sister will take his place for the rest of the year.
Inanna's descent in Hell's episode remains one of the earliest explanation of existence of off-season and vegetation's cycle rebirth, far before Persephone's myth in Greek mythology. Dumuzi's relation with his wife is also a very interesting study, as it's as conflicting as it's prolific. It's an epitome of Love, in a way, with its part of creativity and destructiveness.
List of overrated/overhyped animes I think they suck:
- Elfen Lied: Stuffy, inconsistent piece of gory crap.
- Code Geass: Pizza Hut doodz, cheesy as you like.
- Haruhi Suzumiya: [yet cheap] premise is killed on egg for the sake of strict school-life genre traditionalism.
- Lucky Strike errr... Star: Because moes rambling around is sexy, suuuure my pedo fellah.
- Berserk: Am Guts, deh warrior as deadly as dumb. Am Miura's fondest fantasy so am a fucking Gary Stu, nuuuuuuh.
- Clannad: I heard through the grapevine an ordinary watcher contracted diabetes after completing this high-glucose content show.
- Fuck off, shove your lolis up your butt.
Plot Elements I consider to be awesome:
 Time Travel
 Parallel worlds
 Victorian Era setting
 Hero and/or villain with multiple agendas (multi-layered plot)
 Carefree, manipulative, sociopath with taste for grotesque situations
 Heterosexual couple bound with romantic rivalry/friendship/undertone platonic love
 Badass posing as doormat, while taking care of everything backstage
 Aloof Minstrel with acute fighting skills
 Creepily Secretive Gentleman
 Character who resort to wrestling moves as result of piss off
 Extra-terrestrial presences of all sort (mystery genre only)
 Being/object/place mystically and inexplicably revered (it has no incidence on plot)
 Werelion (yet to be used)
 Manticore (yet to be used)
 Cybernetic demon ruler (idem)

MRRA is the list of randomly selected animes I share in common with a handful of partners.
In order to belong to it, you must be validated as friend.
There's only 5 slots. No more or less. This to increase event's turnover, and not to be stucked forever on the same edition. Some series being very long, it might already take me a while to complete it all.
What are the rules ? If you have more than a thousand entries, you're a permanent member.
Otherwise, your slot selection is uncertain, given randomization of members with few title entries.
I don't wangle it at all. I may be very favored by choices coming out. It's also right for the other way around. Got an awful hentai such as Battle can can ? If it drops, I'm on my way ! Got bara with lotsa buttsecks action ? My doom is coming forth. The most sickening of loli sugarness ? If I still live to tell the tale, it'll be behind me.
Now, that's what you call a risky watching experience.
Fish Snek Club for life !
My Personal Lexicon
Blue pencil: Actually, this is an existing term I use in order to qualify edited stuff. The more it's highlighted,
the more anime's storyline is synopsized. Not to confuse with censoring, as segments are less cut for moral purpose than concern to speed up planning, and then spare costs in actual production.
That's mainly reason why animes aren't going to mimic at perfection their manga counterparts. Cut rightly, show's pace step up for the best. Made wrongly, plotline becomes confusing in addition of feeling rushed, as elements are creamed-off without even being replaced in final screenplay.
Endive: An astonishingly blooding show so slow-paced it makes an episode of Franklin the turtle looks as exciting as Ninja Scroll TV. Its apparatus effectively dilates time. Nothing is redeemable enough to rouse you from resigned torpor. I coined it in comparison with the vegetable for its insipidness.
All in all, a potent soporific to take in completion of your sleep medicine (ex, Odin: Starlight Mutiny)
Purge: Particular category of very bad shows, not as hypnotizing as Endives. Your senses are dull out to despair. They're awful but still don't represent ordeal Slice-of-Death bring to hapless watchers. So, they're not even interesting if you're into testing your limits. Oblivion is their destiny, hopefully (ex, Ninja Resurrection)
Slice-of-Death: Animated instrument of torture. So lousy it stays lousy and makes you want to fuse your hand with face out of fail. Only to watch in order to prove how one strong mind can overcome dreadful crap. This word is utilized in derision of overuse of Slice-of-Life in classification.
To those keen on these titles, damages inflicted to brain might be irreversible (ex, Lucky Star)
Midnight-show: There are a multitude of outcast animes, that should strictly belong to late scheduling slots. Their retained pace, their atmosphere, their characteristic difformities or their violence simply don't make them enjoyable during afternoon. One of my catchphrases, coming from the website carpenoctem.tv, is "seize the night". I say it every time one tell me he goes to bed. It's an invitation to play a last one of these shows, to let oneself overwhelm with Night's particular ambiance. As if Earthly Time becomes suddenly suspended.
It's not in any way a pejorative term which qualify snoozefests (cf. not to confuse with Endives).
On the contrary, they achieve to reach a stage where their charm only operates under a certain condition, despite not having any objective quality factor at all. Midnight-show watching is an inexpressible concept, which confines to fondness for the most zonked out endgame. It's a silent tribute to Obscurity...
No wonder then why I got a soft spot for this type of animes. (ex, St-Luminous Mission High School)
