crossposted from my tumblr

I never use LJ any more. If you’re still interested in what I have to say, follow me on tumblr. This is my last post here. Hope you guess my blah blah blah. Why did I stop posting and fighting and consoling and advice giving? I’m sure people think its because I stopped believing the whole thing. ‘Grew up’, whatever. The answer is no, I didn’t stop believing, it just stopped being a belief that…

I CAN HAS THRONE NAO?

Viserys- I CAN HAS THRONE NAO? by *Greer-The-Raven on deviantART So my roleplaying group meets on Sundays, which has given us the perfect excuse to watch A Game of Thrones, HBO’s adaptation of George RR Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series. I’m not sure what to think of the series as a whole yet, but I do know that I like the characters. One of my favorites at the moment is the incompetent egomaniac,…

Sailor Moon: Informed attribues

I know it clashes with my big, bad image, but when I was a kid/young teenager I adored Sailor Moon beyond what was probably reasonable for a cheesy anime dub. (though I ended up buying all the manga available right quick. I still have a ton of the separate issues) Honestly, I still get a lump in my throat when someone mentions a chocolate parfait. (LOL) Anyway the thing that always got my goat about…

Life story: Willow Kintobor (sonic fancharacter)

Willow’s an old fancharacter/Mary-Sue of mine, and still one of my favorites. She originated on a loooong car ride when I was about 14/15, and accumulated personality, backstory, and (much to my chagrin) an incestuous relationship along the way. Willow is the daughter of Lillian Kintobor (sister of Julian and Colin). Lilly ran off with a Mobian Raccoon man, much to her family’s displeasure, and Willow was the inevitable result. Shortly after Willow’s birth her…

Linkara

So, Linkara’s “review” show is becoming less review, and more narrative self-indulgence, which, honestly, I wouldn’t mind since I like him so much, but it makes me want my OWN self indulgent vlog series. :/

Alan Wake

Two weeks ago I played a game called Alan Wake that had pretty much just come out. I’ve spent the last weeks kinda chewing it over in my mind and deciding what to say about it. Firstly, I’d like to make it clear that I wasn’t one of those people who’d been following the game’s development for years. I’d probably heard about it somewhere along the line, but it wasn’t on my radar until Yahtzee…

NEW PONIES YAY!

Mordax and Bunny and David went to an old toy show thingy sale place today! They had lots of things like old robots and race cars and toy cowboy guns and Star Wars stuff. But Bunny was hoping they would have My Little Ponies and they did! Well, only one table had ponies; he said he only brought them because his daughter wanted him to throw them out! 🙁 🙁 🙁 That made Bunny sad.…

“Who Was I?” LOST and ‘kin

Ben is my favorite character on LOST but I never felt more connected to him than at this moment in that penultimate episode. Mild mannered school-teacher Ben has just received a jolt of the memories of his past self/alternate life, and is left reeling, trying to make sense of it. He saw a different man- who he’d be in different circumstances; who he HAD been; darker- cunning ruthless; and is trying to reconcile it with…

Saban has purchased Power Rangers back from Disney. Clearly Linkara must be responsible. The good news? More Power Rangers with the feel of the old series. The ban news? No Power Rangers appearances in Kingdom Hearts. 😉 -David

ARG(H)

So, there’s a new big ARG/Viral Marketing campaign starting up that I’m excited about. This one is for JJ Abrams new movie “Super 8”, which is set in the 70s and about aliens, the trailer for which is running before Iron Man 2. I’m not really interested in the film itself, but big budget ARGs always have something to bring to the table with their cash-reserves that grass roots games can’t manage. Plus, an ARG…

Notes on the day

Had terrible insomnia last night. Its really a seasonal thing for us; though I think I’m the most affected. Late spring/summer just seems to keep me awake all night. Feels like my skin is full of electricity. I wouldn’t mind not sleeping if I didn’t feel so damned TIRED, ya know? A nice surprise this morning; in addition to wajas I’m a member of the pet site Aywas, although I don’t play very often. I logged…

Agents: The Series

A long time ago I was one of the main authors in a shared fanfiction universe for the Matrix. I left my characters in a really dire situation when I quit, and its haunted me for quite some time. I finally went back, and gave them an ending. http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5937905/1/ -D Ooh, ohh! Now I can say it! THIS Vincent! -Vincent ETA: *facepalm* I accidentally uploaded it onto the wrong account initially,. *sigh* I’m an idiot.…

Pitch for a Multifandom LJ-RP

So you’ve got your character’s right? And for some reason the capricious winds of fate have yanked them from their lives, and put them in another world. Their memories dormant, their powers sealed, their bodies totally unlike what they were before. Then, they start to remember who they were, and connect with one another. Wait a minute, that sounds kinda familiar, don’t it?

Toracon Con report

I was holding off on posting this until I could get pics up, but I still can’t find my goddam motherfucking shitty mini usb cable to get them off my camera. So, report now, pics later. Toracon 2010 (Saturday) started for us at 8 a.m. with 2 hours of standing in line. In fairness, this would have been the outcome no matter when we got there, and even if we had preordered. Once registration actually…

Am I the only one who saw the potential for some serious psychological horror with Jake’s mental transformation in James Cameron’s Avatar? I mean, seriously, what if the reason for his deep, mental change wasn’t some ‘enlightenment’ but rather a result of the inbuilt instincts/chemistry of the body he was inhabiting? If that were the case, what the story really is, is a man slowly having his personal and cultural identity replaced with that of…

The man responsible for “weeaboo”

I just met Nicholas Guerwitch, the author of the Perry Bible Fellowship. I was just sitting at the desk in the front office at work, when in strolls this young, handsome gentleman with big poofy brown hair. I welcome him to Writers & Books, and it turns out he’s come in because he was at the Halloween Poe Masquerade last year and wants to know if there will be another one. I tell him there…
