5 things you may not know about me

Apparently this is the ‘in’ thing right now. I’ve been tagged twice now, once by NeonNinja and once by Gigastormz. Glad to see people care! 😀

1. I’m a fan of the Usagi Yojimbo comic and have the entire run with the exception of some of the recent issues. I have met the creator, Stan Sakai, at the Mid-Ohio-Con once in 1998 and once in 2000. Each time I bought an original sketch and have had them framed. Now you know where my screen name comes from if you didn’t already.

2. Been a big fan of J-rock music for a few years now. My favorite band is Dir en grey and I have all of their albums. The only song of theirs in their entire catalog that I don’t like at all is Deity from the Macabre album, otherwise, I like pretty much everything else and I find that the more I listen to their songs the more I like them. They have a way of growing on you even when the first impression isn’t very good.

3. I used to be big into skiing, but since none of my friends are interested in doing it, I gradually lost interest since skiing alone can be boring.

4. I played Magic: the Gathering for about eight years up until last year. At one point I owned eight of the ‘Power 9‘ and probably had about $2000+ invested into a single deck. It was a deck that could win on turn 1 about 65% of the time and turn 2 100% of the time. Brutality in cardboard form!

5. I have played three instruments in my life: violin (1 year), clarinet (1 year), and alto saxophone (7 years).

I’ll tag majadamus, Sonic5227, and venus577 and hope they haven’t been tagged yet.

Expect a blog on a particularly terrible game for PS1 coming up soon!
