It’s time for a light-hearted article on this blog!

I went to go see Your Name in a theatre. I didn’t know you had such an interesting name. You may bow at any time – Japanese style, of course – but be sure to back away first so you don’t bump your computer monitor. Gee, I wish I could have a movie named after me… just kidding.

This is my solution: a blog. Now I have all of the resources of the internet at my fingertips and I can share everything with you.
