About me

Gender MALE
Occupation None yet
Location Los Angeles, California, United States
Introduction I’m Michael, an amateur anthropologist/japanologist, gaming enthusiast, movie junkie, and foodie. I moved to Los Angeles in August of 2009 to spend a year working before attending UCLA for a master’s degree. My main academic interests are Japan, sexual minorities/gender, and popular media. This blog is mainly to keep my friends informed of my doings, to serve as a sounding board for my ideas, and to provide a place to rant and rave about whatever. I warn you that the contents of this blog often will be very politically left-wing, pro-sexuality, and a little gay.
Interests sexuality and gender studies, anthropology, video games, media, language, Japanese language/culture
Favorite Movies District 9, Blazing Saddles, The Matrix, Shortbus, Knocked Up, anything by Kurosawa or Miyazaki, Angels in America, the original 3 Star Wars films, the list goes on and on.
