Or I would like to call it my yearly apology to my senior and co-founder Folks, people say that I am funny and I believe them, because the quality of the content in this blog is laughable at best. That said, I would not have wanted it any other way. It is no secret that I pride myself in my 4chan origins, a fact that is reflected in almost all, if not every post that I have made thus far. 431 and counting. With it comes all the memetic shenanigans that can be overbearing at times. You would not believe the number of people I have irked with my imageboard mentality, where I basically made a nuisance of myself by doing things such as spouting unfunny one-liners to blatant trolling. The sad part is that even though I am well aware of it, I just cannot bring myself to stop.
My Bahasa Malaysia language teacher in secondary school put it best when she described my writings to be syok sendiri, a term used to define someone who derives pleasure from an act only he or she is able to. In other words, I write simply to pleasure myself. Kind of like masturbating, if you will. However, I personally feel that it is this seemingly conceited attitude that has kept me afloat in the blogosphere, where a good number of my peers who started roughly around the same time as me have burnt out and thrown in the towel. I also think that this approach has aided my attempts at differentiation, if only because not many have considered solely on churning out gimmicky posts. Above all else, I find this to be enjoyable, and as someone who gets bored almost too easily, that is an accomplishment on its own.
Of course, while I have made myself sound self sufficient, the fact of the matter is that I consider myself to be very fortunate, as I have been able to get away with the things that the average anime blogger would not consider or might think twice about actually pulling off. All the more to be thankful, I say, as too often have I noticed others struggling to find their niche, while I am blessed with the luxury of doing whatever I please. Keeping that in mind, I do give it my best to garner your attention, with what limited resources I have in terms of writing ability, bolstered only with cheap lulz and Photoshop. If you were entertained even for the slightest bit, then I can give myself a pat on the back and consider my work done.
If you are reading this as a frequent visitor, you cannot begin to fathom my gratitude towards all of you for being so accomodating and supportive in spite of my selfishness. My thanks also to other bloggers for allowing me to feel at home and acknowledging me with your pingbacks, blogroll additions and comments. Finally, as for my team of contributors, well, fuck them. They all abandoned me
