Perhaps the Mayans have it wrong and the world will end this year. 2011 sure has begun auspiciously. It has distracted me from having much sense of purpose, which takes mustering in the first place. So, I am planning a few new art reviews to keep my toe in the water. I must see Goodbye Kitty in NYC to see where Japanese "cuteness" has ended up. I thought it was obvious enough that Otaku was ominous as it was. I did manage to go the Big Manga Convention recently at the Valley Forge Covention Center and was amazed by the strange outfits and choreographed dancing by fans. Even watched an anime for a short time without interruption.
