Before I make myself look really stupid in the Exploitation

Postby Shiro on Wed Jan 24, 2001 10:04 am

Okay...
I use the name Shiro all over the Internet. It's kind of like an online nickname. I picked it because I saw a couple of anime/manga characters named Shiro (and the creater of Ghost in the Shell is named Masamune Shirow) and I thought it sounded cool. <P>So today I was reading this interview with the guy who draws Exploitation Now, and he mentioned that he has something called a "Shiro complex" in reference to comics. The interview is posted here -->http://idiom.waferbaby.com/?s=interview&i=exploitationnow
in case you want to read it.<P>I typed "Shiro complex" in a search engine and didn't find anything. My only other idea is to put a post in the Exploitation Now forum or send Poe an e-mail asking what it is, but I'd rather ask you guys before I make a complete @$$ of myself. Does anyone know what a Shiro Complex is?<P>Heh, it's probably something really embarrassing. Like "wanna-be lesbian" or something.

Thought of that. Typed "Shirow Complex" into said search engine, didn't get anything of interest.

I think he meant Shirow. As for what he means <I>by</I> it, no idea.<P>------------------
"Truth hides on the other side of a two-way mirror
In countless documents sent straight to the shredder
That might finally give us the whole of the picture
But until the day we decide to dig a little deeper
We know that truth will hide
Under fallen rocks and stones
At the end of a disconnected phone
Down an unmarked street
And buried, deep beneath your feet."

Update: I e-mailed Michael Poe a couple of days ago and he wrote me back with an explanation. Yes, it's spelled "Shirow complex." And it's a reference to Masamune Shirow's refusal to be photographed or give out any personal information in interviews.<P>That doesn't really apply to me. How much stuff do you guys know about me that you kind of wish you didn't?
