Hi, I’m Manu.

I used to have a blog a couple of years ago. I have to admit that I missed it a little, so I decided to go back at it in 2014. I write about a bunch of different topics.

Why “plothole.net”? As defined on wikipedia,

a plot hole, or plothole is a gap or inconsistency in a storyline that goes against the flow of logic established by the story’s plot, or constitutes a blatant omission of relevant information regarding the plot, sometimes even contradicting itself. These include such things as unlikely behaviour or actions of characters, illogical or impossible events, events happening for no apparent reason, or, statements or events that contradict earlier events in the storyline.

This definition suits my life pretty well.

Here are a couple of links if you want to know more about me:

And last but not least, here is my resume.

Thanks for reading.

the pattern

The lead singers of 3 out of 4 of my favorite bands are either vegeterian, or vegan. Is this a sign?

Justin Cathal Geever (best known by his stage name Justin Sane, born February 21, 1973) is the guitarist and singer/songwriter (along with bassist Chris Barker) of the political punk-rock band Anti-Flag. […] Justin was the youngest in a working class family, and cites his parents as one of his inspirations. They opened the first vegetarian restaurant in Pittsburgh, inspiring Justin to become a vegetarian and animal rights advocate, a lifestyle he continues to this day.


Russ Rankin is the lead vocalist for […] former Hardcore-Punk band Good Riddance. […]

Rankin is a member of PETA and leads a straight edge and vegan lifestyle.


Tim McIlrath (born November 3, 1979) is the guitarist and lead singer for the American melodic hardcore band Rise Against. He is also a vegetarian, supports animal rights and actively promotes PETA with his band.


Lou Koller, the singer of Sick Of It All, doesn’t seem to be vegetarian, but the drummer is.
