what with high-speed internet making piracy easier :p
Anyway, it's a good day. I'm at home bumming around in Eeyore PJ pants, a Mario shirt, and Batz-Maru slippers. I am mature. -_- I've got greasy Americanized "Chinese" food, my laptop, a full box of Kleenex (I'm currently filled with infectious disease :P), and a big glass of ice tea. Life is good. The only thin that could make this afternoon better would be a nap, but I can't do that right now because I'm going to go see a play with my sister soon. Maybe I'll play some WoW until then.
It's good that I don't have fancy cable or I'd spend all my time watching Spanish TV. Anyway, to keep with my theme of feeling old, let's talk about anime. I've been watching it since I was little because I grew up in a Japanese neighborhood. When we moved to the mainland, no one knew what it was. All through high school people laughed at me for liking it. But now it seems like every kid I see has a Naruto shirt. My problem is that I am JEALOUS! First off because I wish I had someone to talk to about my shows. But mostly because anime has become super available and cheap now. Heck, some is even on TV. I had to pay $30 per VHS tapes of Cowboy bebop. Each tape had four episodes-- five if you were really lucky. Now, I found the entire series on DVD for $30. -_-' And swag was ONLY found at conventions. And when you live in the middle of nowhere, you're not going to any cons until college. If you got super lucky, sometimes, you'd go into a movie store, and they'd have a random Sailor Moon lunchbox or folder (and they all used the same picture). That was like the holy grail. If you wanted manga, you were SOL wherever you went. But I can't really complain because it's easier for me to get stuff now.
