Now there’s a blog title you never thought you’d see.
This is sort of a general status update, because three things have popped up at once so I can’t really use my usual tactic of sticking them into the start of episodic posts.
First, I appeared on the Bakacast podcast a few days ago, except
they’re lazy they haven’t finished the gigantic task of editing the podcast so haven’t put it up yet. In fact, I’ll be a regular on their podcast this year (or at least, they told me I would be) so have a listen if you want to hear my smexy Irish accent.
Secondly, this happens to be Movember, and I have happily joined in with growing myself a ridiculous looking moustache. You’re meant to raise money for prostate cancer by growing a moustache throughout the month of November, but I’ve been growing the moustache without the fund raising. At least I was, but halfway through the month, due to the unfortunate placing of certain scars on my upper lip from my days of getting kicked in the face playing football, I look like a sex offender. But instead of shaving it off in shame, I thought I’d keep it there and actually raise some money for charity. Problem is, I have no friends, so instead I’m trying to get some donations off my blog readers. It might be a mistake to try squeezing money from anime fans, but it’s worth a shot. If I raise at least $20 before the end of the month, I’ll post a picture of hideous looking facial hair (for reference, this is me without facial hair). Hopefully by then it will have grown into something commendable and won’t make me look like a sex offender.
::Edit:: The donations are closed. Want to see the resulting moustache?
>My final point of interest this year is the 12 Day of Christmas anime blogging project. The call to arms for this project used to be done by Canon-chan, but his blog is dead. However, from poking about on twitter a bit, there’s still a fair amount of interest with bloggers in doing it. For those who don’t know, the 12 Days of Christmas anime blogging thing is where anime bloggers recount 12 moments related to anime they watched this year that stood out to them. It doesn’t need to be something that aired this year. It doesn’t even need to be something you watched, so long as it’s something related to anime that happened to you this year. 12 posts, from the 14th to the 25th of December. I’ll be doing it, as I’ve done for the past 2 years, and I know a few others who will be doing it too. I feel a touch big headed assuming control of the project, which is why I’m instead sticking this note into the end of a post about moustaches.
