Tim Burton's Corpse Bride
This little gem comes out Sept 23rd. For those of you who haven't heard of it (wrist slaps to you!) it stars Johnny Depp (of course) and Helena B. Carter (of course) and is animated by the same folks who made Nightmare Before Christmas. YAY! F***ing YAY!
You can view the trailer at http://www.corpsebridemovie.com
Oh and by popular demand I shall be adding a "General Posts" section for people to post whatever the hell they want in. Hopefully this will encourage people to not be shy and post any silly/stupid/funny thing they like. Let me know in the News Section what you all think. Current Mood: ecstatic

greetings to otaku shelter
here i am, your newest companion in the vast and fascinating world of geekdom!
my name is chris, i am a friend of nate and timo, both of which i met about 46 years ago when we worked at a store together where customers would rent "vhs cassettes". timo was one of my managers, and the most abusive one at that. i once had to cancel my shift because i couldn't find a pair of shades big enough to cover the stapler imprint he had left by my right eye. he also suffered from occassional 'nam flashbacks, during which he would crouch in the dense jungle cover of the drama section and order the rest of us to "look out for charlies in the trees". thankfully, nate soon came to work there, and was able to subdue timo's eccentricities with his zen-like aura.
i am a recently graduated film student from the school of visual arts in manhattan, and am currently residing at my grandparents' house in ocean township, nj. i drive a taxi cab for the drunken tourists of the jersey shore on the weekends, and spend the rest of my free time enjoying the company of my friends, eating and cooking delicious foods, playing games and watching films/anime. by the end of the summer, i plan to find work in sound recording for films to keep myself occupied before i leave for japan to teach english for a year.
i got into anime around the end of high school, maybe junior year, and have seen a lot since. series i appreciate deeply include evangelion, berserk, cowboy bebop, key the metal idol, flcl, his and her circumstances, maison ikkoku, and now and then here and there.
i've attended the past 3 otakons, and i intend to cosplay for the first time at this one. to achieve as of yet unparalleled levels of geekdom, i am going as "gitaroo man", a character from an excellent rhythm based japanese game who's costume is so strange and flamboyant that any pictures that will inevitably surface are certain to derail most of my respectable job prospects. but who needs a "real" job anyway. i went to film school for crying out loud.
i am joining this forum hoping i will meet some interesting people, and to have good conversations about anime and gaming. for starters, if you're going to reply to this, tell me a little about why you like anime, then rattle off a top 5, or 10, and tell me why you like them. i'm always looking for new stuff to get into, and i hope to explore that here.
so that's it for the intro, i am going to finish watching "haibane renmei" with nate tonight, i may post about that soon. i look forward to hearing from you guys.

Is this thing on?
Well, Now that I have figure out how to post on the main page(I think).
I guess I should introduce myself.
I am Buddah.
Thank you. Thank you for your applause.
Seriously folks, I am awesome. I am awesome just like everybody else.
We are all God.
Um... Let me stop before I get too philosophical and just say that I have joined this forum at
the request of the founder.
I would like to say that I am a crazy anime fan, but the truth is I would be calssified just above poser.
I do have burgeoning love of the art and everything else geek related. I am truly a jack of geeks.
Good Night, I have shows at 6 and 7 Current Mood: chipper

The Doc Reporting In
I suppose that most people here know of the legend that is me. But for those who may happen to be total n00bs or those who are suffering from some kind of retrograde amnesia I shall introduce myself here in this very entry. Now, sit back and enjoy the sordid tale of action, adventure, and intrigue that is my bio.
Back in the day, many a fortnight past, about 26 years to be exact, much to the chagrin of the universe, I was born and the prenomen Alexander (Alex for short) was bestowed upon me. As time passed I grew up and gained a fondness for cartoons. Then one magical day, towards the end of high school, I discovered anime and my life became infinately better overnight. Verily, I became an anime fanatic.
When I'm not partaking in the anime goodness I engage in several other various and sundry activities. The most important and temporally demanding of which is my education, and it is a well known fact among those in the know that I am a graduate student studying neuroscience (thats a fancy word meaning brain stuff). In addition to probing the mysteries of the mind, I am trying to teach myself Mandarin Chinese, get into some kind of shape (other then round) by way of regular exercise, listening to Asian pop-music (j-pop, k-pop, mandarin and canto-pop), learning about history, massive caffeine consumption, making an assortment of witty, sarcastic, and snide commends, and doing some other stuff too that I can't remember off hand.
Currently my secret base of operations (apartment) is located in the frozen, yeti infested, wastelands of Rochester Minnesota. There, I reside with my fish, who keep me company and entertain me with their various antics. Together we plot for world domination and play scrabble. Should the fates smile upon me, I shall soon acquire a cat, which I shall train to be a ninja.
So thats my bio, should you be in posession of any further questions, don't hesistate to ask. Current Mood: content
I'm finally a member! *^^*
