News flash: Japan still weird
Japan is well known for many things, and its obsession with sex is one of them. It has one of the most robust pornographic and adult-toy industries in the world and airs TV commercials for items as banal as candy that feature sexually suggestive themes. It even has an annual fertility festival that parades two five-foot-tall penis sculptures down a busy street on a Sunday afternoon.

Some folks are having a tragic holiday out there.  If you're sitting around stuffed with turkey surrounded by loved ones in a cozy home, be thankful.  And please be charitable.
This morning our mom/grandmother and grandfather's house caught fire downstairs in their home. My nephew and Nana were in the house but no other people inside. As the fire spread, quickly burning the entire downstairs, my grandma was carried by family members to safety. The upper level of the hou...

This is amazing.  We should probably send a 5D archive to Mars, and then scatter some more to orbit around red dwarf stars, if we're serious about deep time preservation of records.
Scientists at the University of Southampton have made a major step forward in the development of digital data storage that is capable of surviving for billions of years.

Introduction
IT consultant, writer, artist, technophile, information hoarder...

Those are the essentials.  I felt I should expand.  Let's take these one at a time, shall we?

  • IT Consultant: I've been building, maintaining, repairing, and networking computers since 1998.  My focus is small office/home office networking, installation, and troubleshooting.  Currently, I favor Linux Mint for my personal systems, since I like to tinker incessantly.
  • As a writer, I favor speculative (scifi/fantasy) fiction and the occasional nonfiction essay (usually on the martial arts, politics, or philosophy).  I believe leaders should read more science fiction than the world's ruling class probably does.  So much of it becomes self-fulfilling prophecy...
  • As an artist, I began with an addiction to graphite-fueled drafting.  The original Tron planted a seed, and when I saw Jurassic Park as a kid, it blew my mind.  Computing was still prohibitively expensive even for a middle-class kid, so in order to fuel my pursuit of the graphic arts, I became proficient at turning piles of hardware into computers, since it was cheaper than buying them pre-built.  I am proficient in the standard tools (Photoshop, Illustrator, Painter, Lightwave, Painter).
  • As a technophile, I am a futurist.  I think about the impact of future technologies often.  The cresting wave of change these technologies portend, and the short time in which we have to prepare, makes me marvel at humanity.
  • As an information hoarder, I can say that I haven't lost a significant volume of digital information since 1992.  I'm a packrat of the worst kind.  I still retain games that can't even be played on my current software, because someday... ;)
As for the rest, I'm a martial artist, trained in JKD/Kali to Level 4.  My school is affiliated with the Inosanto Academy of Martial Arts.

I'm an anime freak, although for various reasons I wouldn't call myself "otaku."  I've been watching anime since I can remember watching TV as a little kid.  My favorites are such because of a mixture of mind-blowing artistry and good storytelling: Akira, Ghost in the Shell, Princess Nausicaa, Ninja Scroll, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, and  The Twelve Kingdoms, among others.

As a gamer, I don't game for the challenge but for in-game power and eye-candy.  I do not beat games.  I still have not beaten GTA3, because I don't care.  I just want to play, and beating a game leads to something I detest: The End. That is why I prefer sandbox games (if you've sniffed out a contradiction, don't bother wondering; nothing good will come of it).

I subscribe to several Incontrovertible Truths:
  • Frosted Cinnamon Poptarts are the best.
  • Death is just a trend.
  • A riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma is a bother.
  • There is no such thing as breakfast, only breakfast foods, which are to be consumed at every meal, given the opportunity.
  • The corollary?  Bacon.  You read it here first.
  • Mother Earth wants us for the plastic.
  • And Several Other Truths That Shall Not Be Contravened, On Account Of Being Referenced By An Initial-Capped Bullet Point.
Are you still reading this insane drivel?  Good!  You're just the sort of person I can mold into a willing thrall ... I mean studious fellow seeker of truth and mutual respect.  It'll be fun.  Swear to Bob.
