Hello, my name's Nimbusoak. I'm not telling you my real name, so feel free to give me nicknames. NICKNAMES ARE COOL!
I'm a 16 year old punk rocker/comic artist/jedi from New England and I'm female, if you were wondering. For fun, I like playing video games, watching cartoons, taking my mastiff for walks, and kvetching about the idiots who run my country. I play guitar (badly). I have 8 younger siblings, which is why I'm crazy. I think.

Favorite whatnots:
Anime/Cartoons: Trigun, Blue Exorcist, Slayers, OHSHC, Cowboy Bebop, Teen Titans, Batman: The Anmimated Series and Brave and the Bold (I'm a Batman nerd , My Little Pony
Manga/Comics: Rurouni Kenshin, Hellboy, Naruto, Hopeless Savages
Movies (to name a few): Guardians of the Galaxy, Brave, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Sunset Boulevard, Tangled, the original Star Wars trilogy

My new account is WildGirl1977. Check it out, you!

Happy Rambling

I've been thinking about it, and by the time the next US presidential election comes around I will be old enough to vote. So I need to start thinking about what issues are important to me and which candidates most closely share my beliefs. My first choice for president would be Tintin, because he would be too busy having crazy adventures to actually run the country. Unfortunately, Tintin is not a naturalized citizen of the united states and also he isn't actually real , so he can't be president. I have also rejected Bob and Ray, due to the fact that they are dead, though frankly that would not make them any less competent then the bozos who actually are running the country. I considered Dave Barry, because he has laid out his plans for the country very persuasively (and if you don't know what I'm talking about...then I'm sorry). But if Barry was busy running the country, he might not have time to write his Year in Review. We need Dave Barry's Year in Review. So at long last, I have turned to the only man I believe truely able to lead our country: William Shatner. I cannot possibly imagine how this could not work. I mean, sure, he would have to bring the Secret Service to conventions with him, which might be a bit awkward at first, but everyone would get used to it. So that is my plan. For whatever. Yup.


Hey, guys, I just got a friend of mine to join TheO. Her username is thekimberlygold. Kim is a friend of mine from middle school. Please make her feel welcome and happy and...anime-y. That's not a thing is it? Heh heh.

A thought

It's so stupid that Shakespeare would be considered high literature. The guy wasn't trying to get into the history books. He was making a living. He was an entertainer. He wasn't writing for rich, scholarly types. He was writing for the uneducated lower class, which is why his plays are full of dirty jokes. It makes you wonder what else will be high literature in a few centuries. Futurama maybe. Scripts from Season Two would be standard high school texts. English majors would stay up late writing papers about how Doctor Zoidberg is a metaphor for the anguish and bewilderment of man. "Bite my shiny metal ass" would be a really clever, highbrow insult. Wouldn't that be great?
