Don't you just hate spoilers? I do, too. That's why I always try to include warnings. However, I sometimes ramble a bit too much here or there and maybe a few (or many) key plot points slip without me giving proper notice. So I'd like to include a blanket spoiler warning for the weary internet travelers of the world: Here There Be Spoilers. You've been warned.

The Mission Statement of the Otaku House for 2013

This is my 140th post on my blog and it is only now that I've never really established a "mission statement." That's just my inner-procrastinator at work again. I do apologize. Rather than pretend the past 139 posts do not exist... I'll just make this my mission statement for 2013.

I also do not have a satisfactory bio posted so I'd also like to correct that. I know there's a small bio on my blogger page, I don't think it can hurt to expand on that. Sure, you could just read the previous 139 blog entries, but I'll make it easy for you. 

My name is Jacob Long and I am an avid fan of... well, many things. I like to talk about football, anime, horror (books and films), and just plain books and films in general. My favorite actors are Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Marlon Brando, Clint Eastwood, John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, and Gregory Peck. I love old movies and I hate stupid movies. Oh, I do watch some bad films every now and then (I actually really enjoy some of them), but none of those films would I deem worthy to enter my "Otaku House's Catalog of Greatness." I'm always on the lookout for killer films regardless of genre or age, but I like dark comedies, bleak dramas, and extreme horror in particular. 

My favorite professional football teams are the Indianapolis Colts, the New York Giants, and whatever team Peyton Manning is currently playing for. So that means I am suffering from intense heartache as of this moment. On the plus side my teams are just a few plane crashes away from making this year's Super Bowl. Go team. 

That's another thing you might have to get used to: my odd sense of humor. I'm not very PC and I can be downright offensive (especially to New England Patriot fans and Auburn Tiger fans... but it's not like anything I say about them isn't true). 

My favorite college football team is the Alabama Crimson Tide and college football is more important to me than the pros. Nick Saban is kind of like college football's version of Bill Belichick, but Saban's players don't call him by the nickname "Darth Hoodie" when he is not in the room.

I blog about anime frequently because I watch it frequently. I support the cause because I enjoy the animation and the storytelling. Maybe a bit nerd-ish, but it passes the time. I could be doing worse, though. I could be watching re-runs of Desperate Housewives

I like to think I have an eclectic taste in tunes. Metal, prog rock, metal, classic rock, metal, horror rock, metal... I have diverse tastes, I know. I worship at the altar of Sabbath, Slayer, Type O Negative, and Zappa. 

I am also a fledgling guitarist who enjoys ripping off the riffs of Tony Iommi. 

As I've said before I do like to write when the mood hits me. Unfortunately, that mood doesn't hit very often.  My friends are undoubtedly very grateful for that because it means that I'm not spamming the shit out of their Facebook pages. Oh, well. 

And now onto my mission statement...

The Otaku House is scarcely on the forefront of anything. It's just a place where I dick around and post about things I like because it seems that no one I know likes half the things I like. People are just too busy watching Pauly Shore movies and listening to Limp Bizkit, I suppose. I like to think that the Otaku House is a nice way to kill some time on the internet. I mean, there's only so much internet porn you can watch at the office, right? 

I don't have many goals set for 2013 that apply for this blog. But I plan to read and watch more movies so I can post about them. I also plan on trying to get my first internet stalker. I mean, no one has a real blog until they have their own stalker. Maybe this year that will happen, but so far no such luck. 


  1. A mission statement is just so corporate sounding.

    "People are just too busy watching Pauly Shore movies and listening to Limp Bizkit"

    If I go to hell, that will be my punishment for all eternity, Pauly Shore and Limp Bizkit
