I was suggested to add an index of sorts because of how lengthy this page got, so here it goes:
- INTRODUCTION -
Hello, I am mm4rk3t, a programmer from Argentina, un país con buena gente (or so they want you to believe). I am running this site because I...
- ...wanted to have something to do whenever I am bored and too lazy to do anything else
- ...browsed lainchan's webring and really really wanted to have a site of my own
I really like graphic engines and language learning, so I might post something related to that in a future. As of now, here is a list with some other things I like:
- ANIME -
By far, my favorite animes are 新世紀エヴァンゲリオン and シリアルエクスペリメンツレイン (who would've guess, huh).
物語 is also an anime that I deeply appreciate, but I wouldn't choose it over the ones I mentioned earlier, not only because of the cyberpunk aesthetic, but because I also find the main characters in both to be very relatable. Recently I watched and took a liking to エルゴプラクシ and 攻殻機動隊, as well. 魔法使いの嫁 made me cry.
Here's my anilist profile, in case you wonder what other anime(s) I like.
- MANGA -
I am not a very avid manga reader, but I am currently reading チェンソーマン and I think it's pretty good. In my anilist I also keep track of the manga I read.
- VISUAL NOVELS -
Same thing here, I haven't even finished はつゆきさくら, but I've been loving it so far.
- VIDEOGAMES -
I am a proud linux user, which means that to be able to play most games, I need to run a translation layer called wine, which is not a big deal, as long as it's not a game with heavy DRM required to play, and you know what, most of them are not even worth playing, so, as I said earlier, no biggie.
Anyway, here's my grouvee, where I keep track of the games I play (yes, I like to keep track of the things I do), but, if you are too lazy to go there, here are my top favorites (no particular order):
- BioShock series
- Tony Hawk's Project 8
- COD: BO2
- Far Cry 3
- The Last Of Us
- Red Dead Redemption
- Titanfall 2
- Dying Light
- Valve's games
That should be enough to give you an idea.
- MUSIC -
Recently I've been listening to a lot of Japanese music, some of the artists I like are ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION, ADO, EVE, Hitorie, Kenshi Yonezu, The Peggies, takayan, YOASOBI, Yoh kamiyama and x0o0x_.
There are too many great hispanic/english bands too mention them all, but I believe that some deserve special treatment due to how insanely good they are:
- El Cuarteto De Nos
- La Vela Puerca
- Los Auténticos Decadentes
- Soda Stereo
- Red Hot Chili Peppers
- COMPUTERS -
As mentioned earlier, I really like graphic engines; they are low-level enough to remain interesting, you require plenty of math to work with them, and everything results in cool graphics! What's not to like? My language of choice is C++ because it's the one I suck less at and the first one I "learnt".
I also like scripting, although I know really little about bash or Python. I definitely plan to learn more about them in the future.
My PC runs Manjaro.
- WEBSITES -
I just think they are cool, don't own them.
- neocities - MVP, wouldn't be here without you
- r/a/dio - feel less alone listening to the same thing other people are listening to
- learnopengl - the best OpenGL tutorial out there
- lainchan - Pour out the Soykaf, lurk, and read the rules before posting!
- protondb - see which games I am able to play
- MISC -
I like learning languages (not programming languages, real languages!). My native language is Español, I am fluent in English, and, currently, learning 日本語, as you might've noticed. I also enjoy playing instruments, such as guitar or piano.
Finally, I finished the about page, this took a lot longer that I had planned. If you've got any good recommendations, reach me out on contact. Also, please contact me if you notice that there are mistakes, English is my second language so my making mistakes is entirely possible.
