In addition to the video above, I guess I should write a few words. After all, the first post of a blog should have some feeling of fanfare, shouldn't it?
For those of you who don't know me either from Youtube or from Liveactionanime, welcome, and I hope the first impression I make isn't that of a complete prat. My name's Andrew, although I go by the handle of both Thrash Til' Death (after the Destruction song) and Zaothus (after a nonsense word I just made up). I'm Scottish. I'm nineteen. I study English and Politics at Dundee University. I'm a lifelong lover of science-fiction and heavy metal, and I'm a great believer in the principle that states that no thought is complete without articulation. Everyone needs an outlet for their opinions, whether it's to dispense insightful and constructive discursive discourse, or just to bitch and moan and whine. As of the 29th of September, 2010, this is my outlet. And seeing as I spend a sizeable part of each day immersed in popular culture, that'll be the focus of my rants.
I'm into a bit of everything; film, literature, music, TV, anime, videogames... when it comes to media, I tend to favour the "jack of all trades, master of none" approach. I don't pretend to any extraordinary insight into the zeitgeist of our time, but if I can offer a inform or entertain anybody just a little in the course of my spiels, that's reward enough for me. Any and all comments and feedback are welcome, even if it's just to call me a tosser.
For any of my old compatriots from LAA or AGH, welcome also. You know me as well as I know myself. LAA was a great community and I'd be sorry to see all of the old relationships die out as a result of apathy, so if you're reading this, please, get in contact via Hotmail, Youtube, or Skype and we can shoot the breeze and talk about old times.
See you soon.
