    I'm a biochemistry student, I enjoy pretty much anything science! The geeks will inherit the earth and whatnot. I also like reading fantasy books. And movies are good too! I love long walks, really long walks.
  1. Anime & Manga

    Fullmetal Alchemist is very popular and I found it to be very enjoyable. But for something a little bit more unknown, I recommend Danganronpa. As far as I know, it started out as a video game but they've also made it into an anime. It's a sort of mystery/whodunnit: a group of high school students are trapped in a school by a strange black-and-white bear named Monokuma who claims to be the school's headmaster, and he tells them that the only way to leave is to get away with killing another student, and not being found out during the class trial. As the story progresses you will slowly learn more and more about the school, the other students and some mysteries. Since I mentioned Fullmetal Alchemist, I might as well talk a little bit about it. I actually prefer the 2009 version, Brotherhood, mainly because it felt less rushed and there was more time devoted to exploring all the different characters and their own stories. On the other hand, the 2003 version has some of the more memorable music, such as Dante's Theme. Both are good but I just felt Brotherhood to be more satisfying.
  2. What are you currently reading?

    I'm currently reading Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. I was first introduced to Gaiman's stories when I watched Coraline, which was based on a book he wrote. Then I saw the Doctor Who episodes The Doctor's Wife and A Nightmare in Silver, both of which were written by Neil Gaiman. Since I enjoyed his dark and bizarre style, I've decided to read Neverwhere and so far I'm enjoying it. Trying to describe what the book is about is difficult...I would say it's about a perfectly average man who gets shoved into this odd adventure with a mysterious and magical London beneath the real-life London in England, and he decides to help the people he meets while trying not to be killed by all the things in London Below that he doesn't understand.
  3. Animal TF art

    This is exactly what I was going to say. Furthermore, like most communities, these websites rely on a group effort by its members to make things work better. People should mark their uploads with the appropriate maturity rating, so that other members can see only as much as they want (or in the case of underage users, are legally allowed to) see. There is a very significant bulk of 100% clean art on SoFurry and FA, and if you notice something marked as 'general' when it should be 'mature' or 'adult, it's important to either let the uploader know or send a trouble ticket so that the error can be rectified as soon as possible. Every community or group of people with shared interests, different people will enjoy the same interests in different ways, so it's inevitable to find animal TF art that's not quite your cup of tea among the content that you do like. Hopefully with properly enforced maturity filters and an actively engaged community everyone can make the most of their interests and enjoy them precisely in their preferred way.
  4. Anthro Or Feral?

    I wouldn't consider myself a furry at all, but I do enjoy the fantasy of transforming into an animal. I have a strong preference for feral. I'm not sure that I can really explain why very well, but I believe that there is an element of escapism, being able to settle into the worry-free life of an animal. Specifically a domesticated animal or pet, which has no real responsibilities or struggles beyond finding some kind of entertainment between meals and sleep. There is also something oddly satisfying, however counter-intuitive this may sound, about losing the ability to speak like a person, and only being able to communicate through animal sounds. Sorry, as I said, I can't really explain the reasoning, all I can do is try to describe what I enjoy about a feral transformations, and hopefully that's enough to give some (limited) insight into why I have this preference.
  5. The Illusionist is quite good: good performances, subtle dialogue. Some of the more astute viewers will be able to figure 'it' out before the big reveal but I think that for most people the answer will elude them, and then it will be intellectually satisfying when everything is explained. You may need to watch it twice. The Merchant of Venice had poor writing and I don't think even great actors such as Jeremy Irons, Al Pacino and Joseph Fiennes were able to hold up this disastrous mess. Where to begin? The dialogue was clunky and forced. The characterization was poor at best: one character is rather unfortunate and life treats him badly, but then he behaves in the cruelest possible way, earning no sympathy from the audience. On the other hand, a lazy and reckless character who could be described as a 'gold digger' is seemingly favored solely on the merit of his charisma, and receives an unearned happy ending. It's as though the author had a change of heart halfway through writing the story and decided to make the characters be completely different people while forgetting to rewrite them from the beginning. On a much happier note, Looper is an excellent film. I won't judge it on its accuracy regarding time travel as nobody knows how time travel really works: it has never been achieved. It has a refreshing take on timelines that I had not seen before. Both Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt give wonderful performances, as does Emily Blunt though with an accent that may be unexpected. I can't go into much detail about the story without giving away key details and spoilers so I'll just say that if you enjoy time travel and action, it's well worth watching.
