A little bit over fifteen years ago, I started an ambitious little fan site called Eva Monkey that you may be familiar with.  Through much of my college experience, I spent far too many late nights tinkering with code and generally trying to build the “ultimate” Evangelion fan site, neglecting my studies in the process.  The […]
