I have been a fan of anime since 1985, though I watched a few things before then without knowing they were anime. I watched a lot of unsubtitled anime in Japanese my first decade or so as a fan.
I have been involved in parody fan dubs, anime music videos, and two related fansub groups. I have Fruits Basket characters painted on my car. I have been a panelist at Anime Los Angeles, and I run the anime rooms at Anime Conji. I attend several anime and science fiction conventions.
I participate in an online "book club" style anime club, PAWD (Pick Anime, Watch, Discuss) which is hosted as a members-only group on LiveJournal, and also can be found on irc.rizon.net in the channel #anime_discuss.
