So many non-anime-watchers seem to make an exception for Death Note.

That's because it's awesome (if a bit too insane at times, but to love Death Note is to love Light's descent into utter madness)! My sister, who refuses watch anime, agreed to watch the live action movie and loved it.

As a true blue anime aficionado, how do you like the series?

I actually was blessed to see this church this summer. People, understandably, are not fans of the style of the iconography inside, but there is actually another church in the "basement" with very lovely Byzantine iconography.

I personally prefer the Byzantine style but the beauty in some of these "russian" type churches is overwhelming.

It's one of my favourites, but I have very unsophisticated taste outside of (non-graphic) literature.

If it involves firebreathing ninjas, I will like it, haha.

But according to official church website he was born in 1932--I have to say, he is aging quite well. :D

I still want to know who built a statue of Nestorius. Doesn't seem like the ACE's style.


Anyway, somewhere I want to go before I die.
