Hey there, long time no see! I’ve been rather busy this summer (also known as video games and procrastination), so I’d like to remind the few hundred readers I get from Google searches about GNOME that I am still alive and well. I’m planning a couple new updates, including a review of “Weird Al” Yankovic’s new album, a review of Neon Genesis Evangelion (I finally got around to watching it) and other interesting things that I think of. I’ll definitely get those two articles in before the end of the month, and expect more to follow!

By the way, as the title of this post says, I now have a Google+ account! If you have one, add me to your circles so you can get random updates on my life and interests, as well as blag updates (I’d personally prefer RSS for blag updates, though). If enough of the people I follow switch over to Google+, I might as well quit the Twitter/Facebook business, but I’d most likely keep because of the geek culture that surrounds it. See you next update!

I set it up on my Wii so the family could watch shows over the internet and we’ve barely watched regular television since. About this time I noticed that there were some shows on Netflix that I’ve always wanted to watch but never could due to cost-related factors (I’m not the type to torrent a show just to watch it). One of those was Gurren Lagann, an anime (Japanese animation) that my brother watched online a while ago. So one day, out of boredom, I decided to start watching the series. I’d heard a lot of good things from the rather cult-ish fanbase around this show on the interweb about it, some people saying it was the greatest show they’ve ever watched. So, the question here is: does Gurren Lagann live up to the hype? Is it really that awesome? For the most part, I’d say yes, but I did hit some noticeable snags along the way… Read more…
