It’s time to get spooky, boys and girls. Halloween is one of my favorite times of year: vampires, werewolves, skeletons, zombies, and an unhealthy amount of pumpkin-spiced coffee–honestly, how can you go wrong? To celebrate this most spooktacular holiday, I’ve dedicated a majority of my free time this month to the horror genre and other Halloween-themed media. Without further delay, it’s time to let the spooky shenanigans begin, and to talk about What I’ve Been Watching/Reading in October of 2017. Continue reading
It seems like time has been flying by faster and faster lately. Graduating from high school was a far-off dream to me not too long ago, but now it’s right around the corner (well, 8 months from now to be exact). School might have slowed me down a bit these past two months, but I’ve still managed to keep watching and reading all of the things that I love and (when I’m not being indolent) talk about them on this blog in the meantime. With that said, this is the list of What I’ve Been Watching/Reading in September of 2017. Continue reading
Summer has come and gone far too quickly, and these first few weeks of school have kept me real busy. The remainder of 2017 might be a time of growing pains for Infinite Thiccness, but I’ll try not to neglect the blog altogether. I really ought to make some kind of schedule and finally get my life together. One of these days I’m gonna get organizized.
Anyone who read my previous post is probably sick of apologies, but I have to make one more really quick. Don’t worry, it’s not about the lack of blog posts again, even this past month and a half has been the biggest dry spell yet. Rather, it’s about the lack of anime on this list. I’ve been sleeping hard on anime these past couple of months–I haven’t finished a single series. Not even one. I’ve already talked about shows like Little Witch Academia, March Comes in Like a Lion, Sakura Quest, Re: Creators, and other recently-aired or currently-airing shows in previous WIBWR entries prior to finishing them, but haven’t talked about my progress with them since. That’s unavoidable for some, since they haven’t finished airing yet, but others have been fully available for a long time now. I’m going to try to finish all of these shows this September and finally wrap up my thoughts on them. Until then, bear with me.
I don’t know how the hell to finish these introductions, so here’s What I’ve Been Watching/Reading in August of 2017. Continue reading
I feel like I owe an apology to you guys, though you’ll probably find it unnecessary and over-dramatic. You can skip it if you want.
Over the course of the month of June, when I first started this blog, I wrote a total of 10 posts—11 if you count one that I deleted for being too gay and retarded, even for me. Not exactly the James Patterson of WordPress (which I wouldn’t exactly consider a compliment anyway), but still, not too shabby. That said, what in the actual fuck happened this July? In the past four weeks, I’ve only published four posts—two of which were written impulsively in very short spans of time. Of course, I have plenty of excuses—lack of motivation, summer homework, a week-long vacation in Florida without access to a computer, and let’s not forget the abundance of films, books, and YouTube videos overstuffing my backlog. My Top 10 Waifus list was likely a culprit in this as well. At almost 8000 words, it was an exhausting task—hell, just choosing who my waifus were was a challenge, since there are so many great choices to consider (hence the Honorable Mentions section, which could have been much, much larger than it ended up being). Still, as burnt out as I was, the effort I put in was more than worth it. That list is by far the most viewed post on this blog (due in great part, I imagine, to the oh-so-wonderful clickbait of the angelic goddess that is Nia Teppelin) and probably my proudest achievement on this site (not saying much, I realize). Ironically, I noted in the Afterword of the list that I intended on becoming more and more prolific over the next couple of months. Looks like I made a promise I couldn’t keep. And let’s be real, one post, no matter how long doesn’t justify slacking off for most of an entire month, especially when it’s the middle of the summer and I’m a 17-year-old with no job, few responsibilities, and as inactive a social life a teenager can have without being friendless. In all honestly, it’s probably just the sin of sloth, which thrives during summer break, that caused this little writer’s drought. With school coming up shortly, I can’t really make any promises about becoming more hard-working and prolific in the near future, but I’ll at least try and do the best I can. This monthly update series is about the closest thing I have to a sense of consistency on the this blog, so I suppose I might as well start there.
With that overly-long apology out of my mind and out of the way, let’s take a look back at What I’ve Been Watching in July of 2017. Continue reading
