The internet seems really empty today. Did everyone disappear while I wasn't looking?

▮ Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper on their LiveJournal.
▮ Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
▮ Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on!


I found this wallpaper while I was searching for references for Kamina. I needed those references to make sure my Kamina-inspired wajas looked decently accurate. I discovered I had forgotten about his tattoos. This wallpaper is the most awesome thing ever, next to Kamia himself. WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM?!

Its become apparent how much of the internet's bad pr0n I have absorbed by osmosis.

Someone pass the brain bleach, I think I'd like to drink some.

This icon has rarely been so appropriate.

Shiloh: Hey, I don't want to sound rude but I think your avatar is a bit offensive and inappropriate for the younger kids on this site. As a mod, you're looking out for the site's best interests, and allowing kids to see that doesn't seem right.
Just my opinion though, you can ignore it if you want, you;re the mod. I'm just saying what I think, no harsh feelings. I just have younger siblings on this site and I'd rather they not see that.

Me: I'm sorry you don't like the image in my avatar. However, everyone on the site is required to be 13 years or older, and the owner of the site gave her stamp of approval on my bikini avatars quite some time ago. It's really not more than someone would see in a clothing catalog.

Shiloh:True, but the fact that the avatar looks lesbian could offend people. As I said before, if you're allowed to have it, fine, you're allowed to have it, doesn't mean people like it.

Me: I've actually gotten many complements from people who find my avatars (which are a man's head on a woman's body) quite humorous. Again, I'm sorry you find it offensive, however, as a non-heterosexual, I'm rather offended by your comment that people might not like it because it 'looks like a lesbian'.

Shiloh: Heterosexual or not, someone who is homosexual might find it offensive. Other than that, I'm not sure I have anything more to say on the matter, if you understand where I'm coming from, there shouldn't be any resentment on either side.

Throughout the years Mordax and I have highlighted a lot of really negative things said about otakukin here. Today, I have the happy privaledge of sharing something really positive.

Here's an email that we received this morning; I've removed all personal information.

Hi there; I came across your website while looking for information about Otakukin, a word I had never seen before today (found it mentioned on Wikipedia).
Firstly, congratulations on a well set-up website. I learned all I needed to know, quickly and easily.
Secondly, regarding the mental health of the Otakukin fraternity - I noticed today that members of the Sunni branch of Islam were slashing themselves and their children with swords, razors, etc to commemorate the martyrdom of one of their sect's founders, centuries ago. Shortly afterward, a member of a rival sect blew himself and a large number of Sunnis to bits because he disagreed with them. These folk are all members of a respected mainstream religion.
By comparison, the absolute worst thing that can be said about Otakukin as an idea, philosophy, lifestyle or whatever is that they are agreeably nutty.. In my opinion the world would definitely be a happier place with a lot more Otakukin and a lot less religious crazies.
More power to you!

Found on 6aCornfield on journalfen:

So, LJ is making it mandatory to choose either Male or Female when signing up for a new account. Oh, and choosing Unspecified? HAH! That's silly!

[livejournal.com profile] eruannatel has brought my attention to a new initiative; [livejournal.com profile] dedramo.

"DeDraMo stands for December Drawing Month. The goal is to draw 31 pictures during the 31 days of December. If you're drawing every day, that's a picture a day."

So, I think I'll be trying this.

Leave me a comment saying "I want to be evil."

I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better (probably people I don't speak to all the time, XD).

Update your journal with the answers to the questions.

Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

1.You've seen your fair share of fandom wangst, and I'm sure you're in other fandoms, besides Digimon. What do you think was the biggest fandom blow up?

The biggest plain old fandom blowup I've ever been a part of (in fact in this case I was the instigator) is, as Fandom Wank called it "Terry Pratchett Murders and Grinds Up Stories". I was trying to make a point about how deconstruction/satire of story elements that are supposed to be held as wondrous and enchanting creates a cynical attitude and feeling. Unfortunately I was evidently insane when I wrote it didn't phrase myself very well and I came off sounding naive and ill informed, and then when I was attacked thusly in comments, I stayed around to fight. And I *kept* fighting and made a spectacle of myself in front of the internet. It was all rather amusing, but frustrating to argue with people who had already made up their minds about what I was trying to say, and wouldn’t listen when I tried to tell them what I was actually saying.

Plus, I got called a "vampire fundie" which is hilarious. I prefer the term "vampire purist". XD

2. I've seen that keeping my journal public, especially entries involving the Otherkin, can lead to massive problems personally. (Namely, that my kin have been used as ammunition against me). So I guess my question here is: why do you keep yours public

To be fair, keeping my journal open probably causes me more problems then it solves. On the other hand I'm not one bit ashamed of who or what I am and I'll have at it with anyone who thinks that I should be. As the Major in Helsing famously said, "Gentlemen, I love war." I love to argue philosophy, politics, religion, hell, I just love to argue, and no position is better than that of righteous indignation when someone insults your beliefs, out of ignorance, especially. At the end of the day I don't care whether Troll#967 agrees with me or not, so long as he leaves knowing that I don't "think I can shoot kamehameha out my butt" or am at risk of jumping off a building because I think I can fly. To quote xkcd "someone is wrong on the internet!" and its one of my petty joys in life to correct them at length. I good bout with trolls really gets the blood pumping and keeps my wits sharp. Plus, as I've said before, I'm a narcissist who's in love with the sound of their own voice.

David can, and does, lock his own posts; and I'll keep crossing swords with Anonymous.

3. What's the scariest memory trigger you've had from a past life?

Whoo boy, from a lighthearted one back to one in the deep pit of despair. The scariest memory event I've had was the first one, when I was 14 and didn't know what the hell was going on. I had nightmares that had me on the edge of a nervous breakdown. As I've said on my website, I basically relived a version of the events of Digimon 02 eps 20-21; the fall of the kaizer. But I've already talked that one to death; you can read about it on my website under "experiences" if you like.

I'll tell you about a different one that happened to me just a few years ago. I'm a pedestrian; I don't drive at all. I was walking with my brother Trevor over to the house of a friend of mine. It's a good walk, probably 2, 2 and half miles. 90% of the way there, there's a big, wide road that's always particularly busy, and the drivers don't tend to respect walkers very much, and will try to turn even when you're in the middle of the street and the sign says "walk". Well, the sign said "walk" and my brother took a step out into the road. All of a sudden, and with a feeling of almost physical force, I relived Osamu's death in an instant. It just passed right before my eyes. The car he was hit by, books flying, his stupid glasses laying on the pavement. Sobbing for him to be okay. Back in the real world 'm surprised I didn't freaking collapse. I *did* grab my current brother's wrist and pull him back for no damned reason. We had to wait for the next light. He already thinks I'm a freak, so at least I didn't have to explain to him why my heart was racing and my hands were shaking. It was a terrifying experience that made me feel incredibly stupid and embarrassed for freaking out for no reason in broad daylight.

4. If you could change one thing about yourself, appearance/personality/something that happened in your past, what would it be and why?

Toss up.
If I could change it just like that? I'd want to be male. I've never been comfortable in a female body, but cosmetic surgery just isn't the answer.

If I couldn't have that I'd want my brother to have been a sane, normal human being, responsibility for whom wasn't thrust on me at a young age. But maybe that’s asking too much.

5. if you could add one feature to the internet, what would it be? (And, of course, why). Me, personally, I'd like to add the "reach out and punch someone in the face through the monitor" feature, but technology's not quite there yet.

Food delivery service. I saw it on the Super Mario Super Show when I was like 6- they typed Pizza into the computer, and it printed out an edible pizza. That would just be awesome.

I just solved 2 different coworkers unrelated computer problems in the span of 5 minutes; both of which boiled down to their laptops not having an ethernet cable plugged in.

So, maybe I'm a little late on the bandwagon, but I just heard that Geocities was closing. I find this immensely sad. I have a few Geocities pages sitting out there, unloved and unremembered. But oh how I loved them when they were new.

Yahoo *says* they're going to keep service for extant pages, but who knows when that might be changed? And then all those sites, their passwords forgotten, with their blinking banners, and horrendous moving gifs and tinkly midis, that we thought would linger on until the apocalypse will silently disappear.

And the internet,, no, the world, will be a poorer place for it.

I feel like my eyes are about to start *bleeding*.

why does the universe have to be so damned boring?

Also, I'm hungry and I want my user icons back.
