One teacher, one doctor, one ecstasy, one illness, one woman, one man
May hide another. Pause to let the first one pass.
You think, Now it is safe to cross and you are hit by the next one. It can be important
To have waited at least a moment to see what was already there.
--One Train May Hide Another, Kenneth Koch
Well, I suppose I should get around to putting something here. So here it is.
I'm an editor at heart. I know that the best way to improve something is not always tonight expand upon it; sometimes, the best way is to cut it back. I tend to lean deletionist where encyclopediac noteworthiness is not established and inclusionist where an article is thoroughly referenced with reliable secondary sources. My particular areas of interest are art, folklore, literature, comics and animation, Japanese culture, poetry, roleplaying games, and the internet. I also spend a fair amount of time patrolling new pages and recent changes.
The obligatory list of stuff I helped write:
New articles, rewrites, or major expansion

Bring kitsune up to FA status.
- Further research on shinigami; that article needs a rewrite.
- Glass artists Erwin Eisch and Tom McGlauchlin.
Possiblefurther expansion on Skeleton Key.
- Stub some of the redlinks on List of legendary creatures in Japanese mythology.
Template:Merge-school to tag for merging or expansion of short school articles. Add articles on Ainu mythology(only had 2 articles, both stubs); expand the ones I've already added
- More about Japanese cinema, particularly actors and directors.
(Shozo Makino first?)
- Expand stubs on Japanese mythology.
Finish creating a framework of articles for Ainu mythology, an area Wikipedia has so far neglected. Rewrite Inari (mythology) again, extensively this time. Get it to at least GA.
- Continue to tag sourceless school articles for merging. Merge them later, when nobody else does. Nominate them for deletion after that, if the merge is reverted without introducing any secondary sources.
You get the big brass balls award for saying what needed to be said when closing Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Australia–Barbados relations (2nd nomination). --Ron Ritzman (talk) 11:59, 25 May 2010 (UTC)]]
