Shakespeare... an experience.

Hello once again, everyone. I'm back once again to tell you about stuff. Today we have some particularly stuffy stuff. I'm talking, of course, about Shakespeare. Several friends of mine and I recently put on a performance near my home town which we titled "The Shakespeareance", which is a composite show consisting of several scenes from different Shakespearean plays. According to many audience members, including the Shakespeare professor from the local college, we rocked it. To anyone who…See More

"Thank you. Also, this is by no means a way to scare drivers. Driving, and riding, are both wonderful and freeing. It's simply a warning to be cautious and safe. That means gear. All of it. You might not need all your gear all the time in an…"

"I'm sorry about that. My life was upended by a careless driver, too. Now it's come time for me to to learn to drive, and I fear the damage I could cause to others like your dad or my mom. Your family is in my prayers. Stay strong."

Otakon 2011

Well, for any and all who might be concerned, I decided to start a periodic blog. I will do my best to post at least once a week; more if i can, less if i can't or just plain don't feel like it. Topics will vary drastically, trust me. :p I will probably pick certain topics to do for particular stretches of time. Who knows? This first one will be about Otakon 2011.Otakon 2010 was my first ever con, so I was nerd-gasming over going again. I just returned Sunday and I'm entirely drained and oddly…See More

"deffinitely. Especially in more complex and multi-focal shows, you can miss important things outside the script in the show. Also, with comedies, the comedic timing can be completely ruined by having to read it."

"I agree whole-heardedly! some anime are way better dubbed. I will admit, some dubs are awful, but reading subtitles can take the enjoyment out of watching a good show."

What Kind of Nerdfighter Are You?
The Smexy kind
About Me:
I've been a nerd my entire life. I try to engorge myself upon all thing nerdy. I also run mostly on esoterica: trivia actually makes up 50% of my diet. I just love learning , and HATE not knowing things. Even though I know I can never succeed, I will still attempt to know absolutely everything.
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
Book: The Wheel of Time series.
All fantasy is fun, though. I do also enjoy pretty much anything that has been put down on paper.

Movies: I'm pretty eclectic in my interests, and movies are no different. I like to watch almost anything. I do tend to avoid gore, sex, and things such as that.

Music: I'm a rocker at heart, but like everything else my tastes are very dynamic. I enjoy music from nearly every genre imaginable. I also write and sing music myself.
What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
Yes.
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
Jesus Christ.
When did you start watching the Vlogbrothers?
December, 2010

Dubbed Anime: from an Otaku

Hey there, this is Lvndris91.

 

Now, this post is going to surprise a lot of people, right out the gate. I hope to avoid the chopping block, but them's the risks we take, eh?

As many people know, Otaku, hardcore anime/manga fans, tend to disapprove of dubbed anime. Dubbing in Anime is when they get voice actors to redo the voices of characters in different languages. These "dubs" are often looked at as insults to the originals, and many Otaku will only watch Subbed…
