Book: Entropia – A Collection of Unusually Rare Stamps

I feel like I’m on a roll. It’s just book after book of epicness. I’m overwhelmed and it would seem that the next book has a lot of expectation to live up to. That’s not a good thing, so I’ll pick my next book carefully. In the mean time may I present to you Entropia … Continue reading

The English title of this movie is actually really bad, I think the Japanese title “Recollection … Continue reading

Anime: Trigun: Badlands Rumble

I adore Trigun. The anime was my first contact with the series and I enjoyed it immensely.
