Action, but I love a good, comedic slice of life.

Yeah, when people are asking me about good shows to watch, I'll suggest anime along side normal, live action shows.

Second season of Haruhi, and second season of Code Geass.

Resurrection!

After a long time of inactivity, I have returned to try and revive this site again. I have enlisted the aid of several friends who have offered to put forth materials in their respective hobbies/areas of interest. I am working on redoing to the site and am eventually going to post a few things myself. Until then, here! Eat a video!

Blood on Fire Review Part Zero

So I'm planning on doing a book review of this book called Blood on Fire by a one M. P. DePaul. (Here is a link to the author's blog site http://mpdepaul.com ). Now here is a general outline of what to expect:
Vampires
High School
Blood Magic
Dismemberment
Death
Destruction
Heavy Metal Concert
Humour
Supernatural
Adventure
Campy Vampy

But seriously, the book is really good and rather addicting. It is the first in a series of four books (the other three have yet to be published). I'll talk more about the book when I get to my review of it.

My Plan

Qalort here again! Hey here's a heads up for my current plan. I'm going to try and make a post each week, it might be about something random or it may be a long and drawn out analysis of something. I've got a lot I want to talk about, but I'm also open to suggestions and requests. I'll try to fulfill requests, but be warned I'm not all that knowledgeable about anime and such. I've hardly any knowledge about comics so those are out of the question.

I think the next thing I'll talk about will either be myself or the Severan Dominate from Warhammer 40,000.

Who's the New Bloke?

Hello world, I'm Qalort, or Qal for short. The Q is pronounced like the Q in quiet. I've been Kai's friend in crime for over a decade, though he'll deny it. Anyway, I've a degree in history and am currently working on getting a masters in English, so I like to analyse and talk about crap that no one cares about. I'll be spamming the site with my thoughts and opinions on science fiction, mythology, fantasy and stuff that I find interesting and hope that you will too find interesting.
My hobbies include, but are not limited to reading, watching TV, video games, table top gaming, listening to rock/metal music, delving into the paranormal and the other worldly, and researching random topics and things.

I should weigh in on something, so I'll give a mini-write up on the pre-order bonus that came with the LEGO Hobbit Video Game. Okay, it's a minifigure of Bilbo Baggins dressed in his night clothes. The shirt is really cool, since it has the green and umber checkered pattern (on the front and back), and the arms have similar printing, something you don't see from LEGO much. The legs are the short type that LEGO uses for children and Hobbits. They are coloured dark red, nothing too special here, though I don't think I've a set of short legs in that hue...Anyway, the face and hair is standard for a Bilbo minifigure. The head has the two faces, one being happy and the other is a slightly worried look to it. The hair is the normal typed used for Hobbits--wavy and slightly puffy. Overall it is a cool figure and I like it. I can't wait to set it up in my LEGO Bag End set.
