Also known as 1/2 of Artificial Suns, Mechanical Candle, and now ersatzinsomnia. (All the other good names were taken!)

This journal was a concession to the fact that the vast majority of the audience I was familar with skedaddled out of the AMV journal area subsequent to some rather immature nastyness and all around idiocy on the AMV boards. They all came here...and...well, I got lonly. Rather than desert the ship entirely, I now update both this and the Animemusicvideos.org journal simultaneously for those few loyalists who still hang around. (I get 30-40 hits in the AMV journal, and, considering the length involved, that's fairly significant.)

The standard format of my entries is some self-concerned drivel or meandering contemplations for the first half, and a review of something or other for the latter half. I basically treat these online journals as a writing exercise for whenever I finally get off my lazy ass and write fiction for submission.

I have a variety of interests and hobbies, cycling around animation and horror themes, and I make a point of not mincing words, so if you are offended by occasionally foul language and subject matter, do yourself a favor and keep out.

Oh yeah... I tend to write infrequently, but long....
