Don't be fooled by the apparently thought provoking title.
So... I've been looking at the figures they were going to release at Wonfest 11. And my reaction... could be perfectly summed up by this series of pic:
Yeah, I'm a madman~
Unexpected tl;dr below:
Remember that one post where I mention about being a normalfag? Turns out that... it might be a different story altogether.
I recall reading somewhere of someone who has been commented that his views are "not extreme enough", and I couldn't help but to relate it with my own situation. Looking back to what I've been doing (mostly - but not limited to - hobbies) in life, I haven't really do anything that could be considered as extreme/dedicated/hardcore.
Oh wait, there is one thing... I'm very good at being:
I've always considered myself more of a middlegrounder (I wonder if that word exists, heh), or what I'd say a jack of all trades. Don't get me wrong tho - what I mean is that I have an interest in many things, yet I don't have anything that I feel a particular strong attachment - get the gist of what I'm saying?
By extensively involving myself in the normal life chores and some other time-killing activities, and being a Slowking at BOTH of them (I take it easy at taking it easy?), the result is... wakarimasen lol
So what exactly caused me to bring this up anyway? Well, through the several discussions/talking with some people on a few of my subject of interests (which would include some generic rl stuff as well), you'd certainly notice that I can be quite passive most of the time. You could take it two way - either I'm taking my time analyzing the points being discussed... or rather, I simply don't have anything to say at all on the subject in question. Both are true, to some extent.
But it's not that I feel left out anything! Being someone who sits on the fence have its own charm too (I think). You would be forgiven, however, to come to the conclusion that I'm a passive wishy washy indecisive yesman person, though a more accurate description would be... an impatient reclusive passive thoughtful overanalyzing simple-minded-yet-overtly-complicated dude. Yup.
(I'm a madman, I know)
Alright I've somewhat derailed from what I was getting to earlier in the post.
The point I'm trying to get to is that not many things can really get me all riled up or excited. For the former, it saves me a lot of trouble of getting into unnecessary 'debates', although I can be quite a bore when it comes to conversations.
And as for the latter... well, as the title would suggest, it saves me a lot of money. No, seriously, if I was more extreme, I'd have spent more on all those glorious figures, plushies, artbooks, music CDs etc etc
...or maybe not, since I rarely buy things out of impulse: I would analyze and plan and be an utter stingy cheapskate whenever I have an item that I'm interested in. Partly this is because I'm a poorfag (;_;), and also partly because of the points that I just mentioned above.
Also, while we're at it, might as well mention some of the things in life that could really get me excited, eh?
Music: Got any good ol rock, metal, or just any good music in general? Lemme have a listen to them then! I practically listen to a lot of stuff (Although they tend to be obscure, or the ones that don't really make it to the airwaves. Old stuff tends to end up in my list too)
Anime: while not being worthy of being called an anime otaku - I'm VERY casual at watching them - I could sit around through a discussion or two on a series. But since I don't watch that much series... expect some cricket sound from my side if you started talking about a series (well not really, but you get the idea).
Touhou: I don't think I need to elaborate much on this. I don't think there's any other series that has the same impact to me. Touhou ruined my life (no kidding), but it was definitely worth it.
Geology: Especially those which have some aesthetic values (hey, even rocks could be beautiful, if you look at it from a certain perspective), and when I'm not being burdened with fieldwork.
Now that I think about, I guess I'm not a total bore after all heh.
Yes yes yes, in the next post we'll get to something which is less of ranting and rambling alright~
