You're right.;;
I'll do it soon.
What's a good time? o:

Ah. That was my wife's major also. My oldest daughter got her Master's in Psychology and then pivoted to the RN program. I was a music and then literature major, but then I dropped out to become a rock star. That didn't work out so well lol. Did you choose social science because you have an interest in that area of study or because it might be a field where there are numerous jobs available...or a little of both?

Hiking is great. I used to hike around in the lower Sierra Nevadas to mines and crests all the time when I was younger. Also did some of the Pacific Crest in the San Jacinto and San Gorgonio areas. That was fun, but exhausting. I'd like to get back to doing more of that someday.

What's your major? Same as when you first started?

Well, you're here now and that's what counts. Besides dishes and stuff at work, what's your newest anime fav?

Hey there,

Long time no comment...

I hope that the long respite between comments means that your busy with life stuff LOL. That's what's keeping me from doing fun stuff like this. I have had a new boss for the past couple of years that is pretty demanding compared to previous bosses. Since I'm an "at-will" employee, I'm pretty much obligated to bow to his will or else.

I had a quick look at the anime that you are scoping out. I like how you tend to find the older, more artistically driven anime, rather than going straight for the more popular titles simply because they are popular (i'm guilty of that on occasion). If you haven't already started Samurai 7, I highly recommend that you do. Yes, it is loosely based upon Kurosawa's Seven Samurai, but it is based in a more futuristic setting...sort of. The original old world setting is mashed-up with robots and space ships, and the combat includes katana and spears going up against machine guns and lasers. A few improbable moments, but that's what your supposed to do when watching shows like this: suspend your disbelief, so that improbable moments, and occasionally outright ridiculous moments, can be enjoyed.

I tend to go on and on about anime, but I know that you have a real life also. How's things going?

Before anime music came into my life, I was seeking out various genres.. I listened to a lot of Classical music then. In the 1960s, I listened to "Beautiful Music" format. In the 70s, someone introduced me to rock music. When that got boring, I moved on to New Age and various synth artists like Vangelis and Kitaro. But there was still something missing.

Today, I have over 800 Japanese CDs. Mostly soundtracks from anime I've enjoyed, and a lot of J-Pop/Rock albums. Much of it spans a 30+ year range going back to the "golden age" of anime OSTs. Last summer, I went to Akihabara and found the Bookoff store and on the 3rd floor they have a huge collection of pre-owned CDs. I bought enough to fill a suitcase and brought them back to the US.

I recently installed a new, 4K projector in my home theater. Every night I fire it up to watch One Piece. Imagine that? That series has grown on me since I started watching it last winter.

I'm basically retired (formerly broadcast engineer, who survived high voltage) and currently running an amp repair shop to supplement my fixed income.

Thanks for writing. Wish I'd spotted all these posts earlier!

I was just reviewing my profile and noticed all these comments here..
What brought me into anime? It all started with Robotech in 1985. When they cancelled the series, I discovered a comic book based upon it. In the back of the comic book was a place you could publish your address and pen pals would write to you. I had six pen pals. One was in Hawaii and had access to raw, untranslated anime. I think the first OAV he sent me was Iczer-One.
Later that year, I went to an anime convention in NYC. There, I got a copy of the Macross DYRL movie and bought the soundtrack record. I was hooked from that moment on!

Yeah, I’ve been finding it difficult to find those around the Internet though, or maybe I haven’t dug enough. Still, thanks for sharing it!

Ooh, thanks! I’ve been struggling to find Patlabor art with good quality, thanks a bunch!

College started back up for you yet?

Yo how did you like Mujin Wakusei Survive? Is it a top fav or rather a flavor of the month type of thing?
