Welcome to the Diogenes Club

So there’s nothing here yet. That’s fine, everything must start somewhere. And it might as well start with an intro post.

Hi there! I’m Passerby, the internet persona of a nerd in a room who writes. And that’s all this blog really is; the writings of a nerd in a room. I used to be the secondary writer over at http://yinnopiano.com/ but these days the main blogger is a ghost and the blog is mostly a wasteland. Over the week I’ll be working on moving my work from over there over here, for archival reasons. Then we’ll begin actually filling this place with new content.

What can you expect to read about here? If you enjoy computer games, anime and general geek-dom you might enjoy what you find. My interest is in the way stories are told in these various media, with the belief that something entertaining can also be something meaningful. Or, to cut away all pretentiousness: if something interests me I’ll write a spiel about it. Now, what one piece of media says to me may be very different from what it says to you, but I hope you’ll find these interpretations at least a bit enlightening.

By the way, I also write for Random Curiosity where you’ll find a lot of my writing in weekly-reaction format.
