    I think I broke my manhood

    Well I got an awkward remix from the start, my assignment was to do the iconic you assignment but with the twist of doing it the exact opposite; meaning the un-iconic me i suppose. So in a horrible display of my manliness I have created this: The people featured in the letters are from an ...

    Remixing in anime

    Being an otaku it be nearly impossible for me not to notice remixes presented throughout anime, as the name of Kirby’s videos implies, everything in anime is a remix.
