I'm not a major contributer or reader by any means. It has been many months since I finally
made my Will save against the terrible curse this site inflicts upon the unwary
. I now come back to this place for the odd reference, and only very rarely engage in days-long searches scouring the entire wiki for every single odd reference to Eva
While I have been around for a while, I doubt I am very well known for anything particularly special. I was around for The Great Crash
and made attempts at scraping Google's cache to aid in the recovery effort. Unfortunately I was at work when most of the pages were restored, so I wasn't really in much of a position to do anything at that time. Seriously, you guys are awesome to have pulled together so quickly like that!
This Troper provides examples of the following tropes:
- Archive Binge
: I was not
joking about doing a search for every reference to Neon Genesis Evangelion
. I don't even remember what the original purpose of it was, not that that stopped me from completing the task...
- TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Life
: And how! Even though I have already been aware of a lot of the patterns mentioned here, it wasn't until I found this site that I was able to ascribe labels to clearly (or at least more
clearly) identify the weird stuff one sees in media.
Media this Troper has been exposed to as a result of TV Tropes
(in as best of an order as I can remember, likely incomplete):
- Planescape: Torment
- They Live!
- Max Payne
- Bat Man
Mask of the Phantasm
- Bat Man
- Blade Runner
- American Psycho
- Last Action Hero
- Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
- The Angry Video Game Nerd
- That Guy with the Glasses
- Neon Genesis Evangelion
