Otaku Wormhole Online Store!!!

Now Open!!! The Otaku Wormhole Online Store!

Get all of your Otaku Wormhole gear and accessories here. Makes for great gifts and well just cool stuff to have laying around the house..LOL.. It's not really much as far as anime or real otaku gear goes, but it is my designs, and elements from this blog, and it does go to a good cause....MY ANIME ADDICTION!!!.. LOL. JKJKJK!!!... All of the items for sale have my designs but are put together by the website Cafe Press where you can also set up a shop. I've mainly put this together just to attempt to get back some of the proceeds that I've forked out over the years with web server costs, hard drives that I've filled with anime, and overall all of the time and effort I've spent telling others and introducing them to the true Otaku culture. And I mean that's a lot. I know I've spent way more supporting the anime industry than most people, but these days I've also got a family to support. So why not try and jump on the bandwagon before the wagon leaves, and try to make back a little cash to support a habit that I dont want to let get away from me due to finances. So no pressure tho, just have a look, if you see something you like, hit it up, and I might make a very small portion from the items sold (since Cafe Press makes like 99.85652% of it.. heh heh).

Here's some of the designs I've made for the gear. Hope you like them....I do.

Some of the items available are T-Shirts, Hats, Coffee Mugs, and Thong Underwear...(Yes! You heard me right! HAA HAA HAA HAA!!!!) Soo please help a brotha out and buy some shiz here... Otaku Wormhole Online Store!

Anime St. Louis 2010

So yet another Anime St. Louis (my hometown) is getting ready to start and once again I am not in attendance due to my not having lived there in many many years.. Even if I am only 3 hours away, there's still soo many tasks at hand preventing me from going, and right now the main reason is that i'm feeling ill and dont want to go fact my whole family is walkin around with runny noses and sore throats.. But all that aside. I felt it pertinent to give the con a shout out. I wish I could make it, but if you're in the area, you should go. I'll be looking fwd to some stories from there.. ja ne.

Anime Characters for Ink

but in the meantime, I need your help.. Does anyone have any ideas on anime characters that I should incorporate into my left are tattoo sleeve? Think about it and get back to me.. I'm mostly just using classic characters that have inspired my anime addiction, but I'm open.. hahaha.

Life Rant

I haven't updated in a bit just because I've been busy since getting back home from being deployed to Guam. At first I was severely jet-lagged and it took me a few days to get my body clock back on normal time. Then there was the submersion of getting back into the swing of things with the family and catching up on some much needed housework, chores, and projects that had gone unfinished since I had left. Now we're just getting ready for our new family addition to arrive and in the mean time theres still lots of preperation even for that. Overall as anyone who has a growing family will know there is always things to do and many things go undone. A man's, husbands, dads, and extreme otaku geeks job is never done. I'm off work for a little while (which is good) so I'm trying to attack as many of those previously mentioned projects as I can, while at the same time trying to not forget who and what I am....I am the Wormhole, and on top of that I am an Otaku. Which by very definition should really mean that since I work hard and play hard (well I try anyways but since I'm getting older I'm finding it a bit harder to play as hard as I once did) I am a responsible otaku and more accurately an otaku dad (which maybe I could have called this blog, but I didn't want it to sound like a few other blogs out there). I try to do all the 'normal' things a father is supposed to do to take care of his family, but at the same time, I try to stay true to my otaku origins. I love anime, robots, technology, beer, and toys, and did I mention beer (keep an eye peeled for Otaku Wormhole Ale which I will start home brewing as soon as time permits. I know it'll be good, and a reasonable beverage choice for any otaku of my caliber. haha). Well back to my landscaping, garden planting, baby room setting up, and upgrading my basement home theatre 'the otaku den', and about twelveteen other projects I've got goin.. be back soon.. I hope
