State of the Blog Address (June 4, 2012)

First off, I’d like to apologize for being inactive these past few days. I now have a different internet service provider but it’s the rainy season in my country and transition has been slow. Also, my college life starts in a few days so my schedule will probably become tighter and I have my priorities so expect some delay with my reviews and probably less random posts about figures or conventions. Let’s see, I STILL don’t have the latest episode of Medaka Box and Sankarea and if I can’t get it soon, I’ll have to skip the review for those episodes and move on to Tasogare Otome x Amnesia. Don’t worry though, I’ll try to finish blogging the whole show and if I can get enough time, I’ll just combine this last week’s episode with this week’s and make just one post. Hey, did you notice the Twitter feed on the side? Yeah, still looking for ways to make this blog bigger and better!

State of the Blog Address (April 26, 2012)

My internet speed is at an all time low. To give you an idea, it took me TEN MINUTES to load the front page of this blog. I could have went down the kitchen and made myself a sandwich, get back to my room, change my clothes and take a nap, wake up, find a job, fall in love, marry and have kids before my slow-as-a-turtle-corpse-on-Cocaine internet could get anywhere.

State of the Blog Address (April 12, 2012)

Unfortunately, my internet is still slower than dial-up. I contacted my new internet service provider and they are not getting off their lazy asses until friday.  Due to these circumstances, I’ll have to limit my anime reviewing to these three shows: Medaka Box, Sankarea, and Tasogare Otome x Amnesia. I’ll also be attending a local convention, Ozine Fest 2012, so there may be a delay in my review for Medaka Box episode 2, but I will be covering OzineFest so expect some cosplay and figure pictures when I get back. I also plan to start a new blog segment called “Dude’s Writing Yaoi!” with a Skyrim fanfic already in the works. I’m not sure if this is going to attract more readers, or just turn off the readers I already have…Anyway, I’m off to pester my IPS again. Take care and keep supporting SSAB. Oh yeah, here’s a preview of that Skyrim yaoi: Continue reading

State of the Blog Address (April 6, 2012)

Greetings my esteemed readers! This is the State of the Blog Adress, SOBA for short. I would like to start start by congratulating myself for exceeding expectations. I expected absolutely no hits within the first few days of this blog. Since the birth of this blog, up to this point (April 6, 2012 8:45 P.M. GMT+8) we have had 147 hits which is 147 more than predicted! Of course, this milestone wouldn’t have been achieved without the support of you readers. Please, congratulate yourselves as well.

The Beginning of Something Absurd

Welcome to me little pet project! I am “Giuvigiuvio” (pronounced Geeveegeevee-OH!). First off, something you need to know about me, I am a character of extremes. I’m usually a quiet person (some would say socially awkward), but given a medium and opportunity to express myself I will go all out to let everyone know my thoughts. I can be brash and annoying, but I value being respectful. Just know that my goal in writing will never be to insult. If I would ever offend someone, it would be by accident. Continue reading
