Remember that f-locked post I made a while back about male-dominated fandoms and how frustrating I find them? Remember how I gave the example of Transformers fandom and how a large amount of it is unfriendly to female fans, and how a lot of guys complain about women "ruining" their fandom? I couldn't link you to an example of this behavior then, but boy howdy can I do so now.

Not that the girl in this case is a stellar example of a female fan, either ( Fat hate! Oh joy! ), but at least now everyone can see that I'm not making this up.

Change the sex and switch out "beer" with "carbonated drinks" and you basically have me.

I don't know whether to have a good natured chuckle at my own expense or feel shame and embarrassment.

[music |Vangelus Review 45]

I've actually, seriously been thinking about doing a Let's Play/Screencap Adventure for Star Control 3 for the past few days now.

I must be insane. I haven't even really played the game yet...though that could be amusing in a "it's new to both myself and potential readers" way, I guess.

Then there's the question of whether to go with a solely screencap format, a video format, or a combination of the two.

Still, I have a very strong urge to go for it.







WTF, where did this come from all of a sudden?

Though I'm rather late and there's only a few hours left, I'd like to wish every American who reads this a

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!

May the future only get brighter from here on.

Alan Dean Foster? I love you. So very, very much. <3 <3 <3

I finally bought and played through the entirety of Portal, too. Words just cannot express how lovely I find GLaDOS' voice (both "normal" and "strangely seductive sounding after you destroy her morality core" versions).

Oddly, I only started to find the game challenging around the time the turrets first show up. Level 16, I think? Yeah.

More about that later, as I don't have my notes with me (and I'm at work, too, so I only have time to make short posts). Damn has my work schedule eaten my life.

Promises, Promises... [Feb. 18th, 2008|01:08 pm]

So between random internet connection outages, power outages, and all around laziness, I didn’t get to make the promised entry. I hope you all forgive me.

Despite all that time away from posting on LJ, there really hasn’t been much in the way of interesting things that have gone on in my personal life. The holidays went as smoothly as they often do around here. My brother came home from college to visit us for a few weeks, which was surprisingly nice. I never thought that I’d miss that little bugger and his liveliness so much. Without him around, my family and I become rather boring individuals.

Speaking of him, near the end of his stay he walked over to me while I was busy with something on the computer and proudly announced that he played his first game of D&D at college. He was practically beaming, and I had to keep myself from laughing at him. Why? Because this same boy is quite conservative and religious (even the college he’s attending is a rather prominent Christian one) and several years previous when I told him that I’d given Dungeons and Dragons a try (albeit a pretty bastardized version) he was pretty weirded out. I think it was because he believed all those rumours about it being a “demonic” game, although probably not to the hilariously idiotic extent of Jack Chick.

So yeah, I was pretty amused by my brother’s revelation that not only was it not such a bad game after all, but he actually enjoyed it..

As a result of that talk, I got a bit nostalgic and decided to go and look up the different D&D races and monsters, just to see how in-depth the creators went into them (and, admittedly, to look at the pictures :B). As I’m going through them I come across the Thri-Kreen, a race that reminds me of a brownish and bipedal version of the Thranx. In the appearance department, at least. On a whim, I look them up on Wikipedia to see if they were a reference/nod to the Thranx, and guess what I find? Apparently Star Control’s own Paul Reiche III came up with them. :O It seems that I just can’t escape the grip of SC2, even when I look into other fandoms. Not that I’d want to, but you know what I mean.

As a side note, I really hate it when fantasy and sci-fi canons give humanoid/mammalian breasts to beings that should not have them. Also, notice how in the second example the male is much more monstrous and lizard/serpent-like while the female looks like a very skinny human with some vague lizard facial features. Yeah.

My birthday (Jan. 23rd) came and went without much fuss, which is fine. I’ve never been one for birthday parties or celebrations or anything. There was a bit of a happy coincidence, though: alanahikarichan started playing The Captain over at damned. It gave me a chuckle, anyway. Now to start stalking reading about his antics and see what happens when he finds out that ZEX is there. >3

Got a new job, finally. That’s where I am now, in fact. It’s pretty cool. The only drawback is that I get home quite late and I’m usually too tired to read much from The Light-years Beneath My Feet. Damn. It looks like I’m going to have to put some time aside on the weekends to read it.

I have something else to write about, but I’ll have to edit it in when I get home. It's a bit on the, shall we say, NSFW side.

EDIT:

So I've found it. By accident, actually, which just further proves my theory that if I ever want to find something, the best thing for me to do is not look for it.

But anyway, here it is: Four 10 second clips of the only completely consentual tentacle sex scene from a commercially available hentai series that I've ever seen. I don't think I have to tell any of you how rare this is. The demon/alien/whatever is even concerned about his partner and asks if she's scared, implying that he'll stop if she wants him to! :O This just...blows my mind.

Will make a real post tomorrow, finally.

Who knew that a job like my new one would suck away so much time and energy? Regardless, things should stabilize enough by tomorrow so that I can actually reply to, like, the million posts that people have made since I've been distracted.

Another cold nearly over and I’m back! Woo!

So I finished Lost and Found a while ago...

End Book One. To Be Continued...Collapse )

Completely unrelated, but Japan? Every time I manage to convince myself that your fascination with making inappropriate things cute is just a stereotype, you do stuff like this to prove me wrong.

If it's written on a to-do list, it means that I'm much more likely to actually DO it. [Nov. 24th, 2007|01:33 am]

Okay. I'll make another entry about Lost and Found tomorrow since almost 2:00am right now and I'm too tired to type up such a long, involved post (as if I make any other type). And I'll get around to replying to zarla's latest Secret Theater entry tomorrow too.

A couple of quick things:

For some reason, I really, really like that strut (well, I see it as a strut) in the first panel of this Banished! strip. The Boscis are awesome.

Damn you, waywardoctagon! Those flash games you recently posted have been distracting me for hours. AGHRRJIHhfdslk;h, why are simple games like those so addictive?
