Full History of My Contributions

Hey there. I'm from Toronto, Canada. I edit mostly animation-related, film-related, music-related and Russian articles, with some other things on the side (lately, geopolitics).

My favourite quote about the role of this website comes from User:Sturmovik, who said in a certain AfD, "I find it a vital service for Wikipedia to bring me information on life's obscure topics".
