Greetings, one and all. As I've forgotten for ever-so-long to do this, I may as well do it now.
I'm talking, of course, about introducing myself. The space in my newgrounds details is pathetically small, and while I'm not writing any essays by describing myself here, I figured it was worth a shot.
My LABEL, if you choose to give me one (as people, even I, so commonly do), is GOTHIC.
My hobbies involve writing, singing, drawing, poetry, collecting manga, reading, watching anime, listening to music, being generally philosophical/spiritual and trying not to let the wolves of this world get me lower down than I already am.
My favourite bands are My Chemical Romance, The Rasmus, Sixx AM, Marilyn Manson, Tokio Hotel, Blue October, Disturbed, The Used, Miyavi, System of a Down and a great amount of select others who I listen to a little less than those.
My favourite movies are impossible to list, as I have so many. I'll try and shorten the list as much as I can by putting things into groups:
-Any film directed by Tim Burton (especially Sweeney Todd)

As a little bit of extra information, I love sushi, Farmers Union Iced Coffee, video gaming and going to band gigs and comedy shows. There are a few quotes that I find I like to live my life by. These quotes are all by very wise and incredibly wonderful people, so I suggest that you take them as seriously and as meaningfully as I do.
Pay close attention to the following quotes:
"The ships hung in the sky much in the way that bricks don't." -Douglas Adams.
"They must find it difficult, those who have taken authority as the truth rather than truth as the authority." -G. Massey.
"He hoped and prayed that there wasn't an afterlife. Then he realized there was a contradiction involved here and merely hoped that there wasn't an afterlife." -Douglas Adams.
"In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move." -Douglas Adams.
"It is no coincidence that in no known language does the phrase 'As pretty as an Airport' appear." -Douglas Adams.
"There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened." -Douglas Adams.
"He felt that his whole life was some kind of dream and he sometimes wondered whose it was and whether they were enjoying it." -Douglas Adams.
"Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space." -Douglas Adams.
"I find the whole business of religion profoundly interesting. But it does mystify me that otherwise intelligent people take it seriously." -Douglas Adams.
"There is an art, or, rather, a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss." -Douglas Adams.
"To punish me for my contempt for authority, fate made me an authority myself." -Albert Einstein.
"Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen." -Albert Einstein.
"I gotta tell you the truth. When it comes to bullshit, big time MAJOR league bullshit you have to stand in AWE of the all time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims: Religion. Think about it, Religion has ACTUALLY convinced people... that there's an invisible man living in the sky, who watches EVERYTHING you do EVERY minute of EVERY day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do ANY of these ten things he has a special place full of FIRE and smoke and burning and torture and ANGUISH where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry, forever and ever, till the end of time. But he loves you. He LOVES you. He loves you... and he needs money! He always needs money! He's all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, all-wise, and somehow, just can't handle money. Religion takes in billions of dollars, they pay no taxes and they always need a little more. Now, you talk about a good bullshit story... Holyyyy shit." -George Carlin.
P.S. The picture I included is a startling comparison of what I look like alongside a normal person. I see a big difference, don't you? Or is it more of a subtle thing...? Hrm.. Have to think about that a little more, perhaps.
