The Site 

Heta no Yoko-Zuki「下手の横好き」This blog was created as a means for me to write about what I like and enjoy. At this particular moment, my life consists of anime, manga, technology and pretty much anything and everything that is relevant in the world today. Of course, I don’t really feel like blogging about everything. That’s why I will try to key in on all things Japan, perhaps with a sprinkle of tech and sports whenever something big comes up.

Anime, manga and anything related to it will be the focus, so I will update on what I’ve been watching and reading on a regular basis, giving my opinions on the particular subject. For the first few weeks/months, I will be aiming to  blog on mainstream material but in the future I will look to slowly integrate less popular manga and anime that doesn’t get enough recognition. I hope that I will be able to develop my own style of blogging so fingers crossed, I will reach that goal in the near future =)

 

The Name

The blog title is something that I found while browsing around the narutofan forums, particularly it’s language subforum. It was in there that I found this japanese idiom, Heta no Yoko-Zuki, posted by the member horsdhaleine. It practically defined me in some aspects and I thought it was perfect for a title of a blog. 

Here is the definition: 

     「下手の横好き」

       Heta no yoko-zuki

       Crazy about something but not good at it

 

The Man

NAME: Bass

PROFESSION: Serial Procrastinator/Aspiring Architect   

LIKES: Soccer/basketball/american football (sports in general), drawing, collecting various oddball objects, games, music, playing guitar/drums/piano, lasagna, procrastinating and long walks on the beach indulging in fine wine.

DISLIKES: Boredom, financial insecurity (needs more munnyz), losing, procrastinating, deadlines, pressure, hangovers, proper grammar and apostrophes

BIO: Like many student architects, Bass tends to be a bit overworked most of the time. Deadlines, presentations and model making take up about 90% of his time during a typical day, with the remaining 9% used for things he enjoys and the last 1% on the necessities (sleep/food etc.) He would prefer to be described as an redundant, eccentric, quirky and laid-back fellow but everyone knows he’s just nuts.

Hailing from down, down under (that’s New Zealand folks, not Australia), Bass resides in the windy city of Wellington. A country of greenery and mythical creatures, Bass is surrounded by wild life, particularly hobbits, sheep and gigantic apes. When he isn’t pulling out hair from his latest project, he can be found sipping his favourite White-Chocolate-Mocha-Frappuchino-with-cream-on-top at a local Starbucks, typing away on his Macbook Pro.
