Location Somewhere in CALI FORN I A
Religion: The only religion I find myself gravitating towards would be Taoism...
Likes: Deep and meaningful conversations, (Which I haven't had a lot of in my life *sigh), the wonderful game of go, Web boggle, classic literature, pondering philosophy (which is basically me reasoning how philosophy is utterly useless because it teaches you nothing except how to be pretentious and condescending towards others), playing piano guitar and harmonica, and listening to diverse, cool music
Dislikes: Phonies, people who try to force their lifestyle upon others instead of letting them choose for themselves, all the hatred in the world...
Favorite Anime: Haibane Renmei, Windy Tales, Kino no Tabi, Serial Experiments Lain

Favorite Sport: Swimming (I'm on a swim team)
Favorite Music: Oh god... my collection is so diverse... I like death metal a lot, not standard cookie monster crap but melodeath like Opeth, Dark Tranquility, In Flames, Agalloch... I also love prog metal a la Tool... Classic rock is a must too - I love Jackson Browne, The Eagles, Pink Floyd, Santana, Creedance Clearwater Revival... Jazz and blues - B. B. King, Miles Davis, Coltrane, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holliday, Louis Armstrong... and World Music - especially Anouar Brahem ... he's a GOD on the Turkish oud...
Fun Facts about me: Uhhh... at times i can be really random and hyper... i guess you could call that "fun"
Location: A block away from Golden Gate Park
How fun, I think this should replace the introduce yourself sticky. The first three questions are obvious from my posts.
Name: Randall Miyashiro
Location: San Francisco
Marital Status: Hermit Status
Age: Old enough to run for the next Presidential election
Avatar: This is an image from the third half hour episode of a comedy series that I helped out on (wrote, directed edited various episodes) which ran on cable access.

Favorite anime: Planetes, R.O.D., Berserk, Patlabor, Figure 17, Boogiepop Phantom, Zeta Gundam, Ergo Proxy, Crest/Banner of the Stars, Area 88, Noein, Wolf's Rain, anything by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko, Satoshi Kon, Makoto Shinkai, or Rintaro. I have so many favorites, but my profile is public and I have around 500 titles listed. My DVD collection has surpassed 1300 anime DVDs.
Favorite books: Hyperion (all four books), Miles Vorkosigan series, anything by Steven Brust, anything by Guy Gavriel Kay, Fire Upon the Deep, Deepness in the Sky, Song of Ice and FIre (I just spent $410 for the lettered edition "R" 1 of 52 of Feast for Crows! I don't want to think how much I've spent by the time the 7th book is released), The Skolian Empire novels, Kage Baker's Company novels, anything by Neil Gaiman, Snow Crash, anything by Tim Powers. My list goes on forever since I worked at Borders for many years and used to be a Hugo voter.
Interesting facts: A 7 minute film that I edited and worked on with my roommates (a bunch of film grads) will be screening at the Landmark Embarcadero Theater along with 11 other short films this Thursday. I can't believe that they only gave our house two tickets, the rest of us have to pay $9! I was hoping that this was one of the Landmark Theaters to have Paprika because it would be cool to have my movie played in the same theater as Satoshi Kon! If you live in the city check us out, I'll be at the 9PM showing!

This will take you to a link to our Myspace site for now until we get our stuff archived onto the site. From there you can find my profile as well, which has more images (many animated images of me!) from our older stuff.

Aww, even though your cat is a boy (at least, I'm assuming so since its name is Patrick), he looks like one of my girl cats who lived to be about seventeen or eighteen years old. I had to say goodbye to her in December. She's the "Tabby" in my username. Give your kitties lots of loves and hugs!
Cool! One of my best friends is both an anime fan and a biologist, too! Ani-bios rock!
That's awesome! No wonder you can read the original Fruits Basket. I wonder if this would make my brother jealous or not--he was a history major and his main topic of interest is Japanese history and he still hasn't been able to go to Japan.
