Nice picture! I remember those FLCL eyebrows. That was a totally hairbrained idea.

There isn't anything else to mention about it, I'm just making parallels to a similar situation. I wanted to point out how you personally reacted in a situation the same way that others are now reacting to you. I'm sure most, if not all people are guilty of doing the same, myself included.

You were certainly offended enough at her to call her a bitch simply because she criticized someone who you happened to be friends with.

Thank you.

Also, and I don't mean to pick a fight, but I wanted to mention something I forgot before: one of my best friends criticized the abilities of one of AMKE's directors around you and you may or may not have taken it very personally simply because you knew them.

Someone could easily do the same thing with any criticism you make: take it as a personal attack instead of a mere criticism on the situation. It sounds like that's the situation with your con report as well. That's why its important for you to word things succinctly and carefully.

Critiques should be impartial, and it seems to me like that's something you aren't really that good at. That's how an editorial works, my friend. :)

Here's my opinion: I don't think people are irritated at what in particular you mentioned, just the way you presented it.

Case in point: "Also, after walking across the stage, the cosplayers were ushered back to the green room. Also... not so great. Fix these issues guys, seriously."

Just because you personally think something is a issue doesn't mean they need to fix it. The way you worded that, especially with the "seriously" at the end, in my opinion, sounds very demeaning & sarcastic.

You have to remember, too, that any sort of criticism on the internet can and will likely be met with some sort of disdain. People get very defensive about things they are proud of, too.

A lot of times its not what you say, but how you say it. I'm guilty of the same thing, as Tae would chime in and say if she were reading this as well.

I saw a special on Blue Man Group a little while ago, and I remembered really liking that song (rods & cones). Good choice. That area near the stairs was really pretty. Because Taeliac and I are literally less than 3 blocks from Lake MI, we get some crazy lake effect snow every year. It's always pretty at first, and then after months and months...it's just damn cold. And wet. Maybe I'm just feeling pessimistic.

Heh. "Snarky". Those last few seconds at the end with you running away was hilarious. I think you need to make that an animated gif and use it as a sometimes avatar.

I would've assumed that anyone can assuredly discern that there is a large difference between an "online" and "offline" self for...well, pretty much everyone. I'm very curious as to what the cause of such an entry is, but I'll keep my nosy thoughts to myself. :D

I don't remember what Isle that is, either, but I know it's different than the one I was on. Everything in the Bahamas is literally a stone's throw away from each other, though. The map of the largest island literally showed the width of the one highway that splits it in twain.

My girlfriend and I were just there for a week this past June! What island were you on? We were in the middle of Grand Abaco, on the eastern shore with an endless horizon.

It may not be as whiny to you, but it's still whiny to me. I'm talking more about the way she sings, though, and not the lyrics (although those are pretty whiny, too :D ).
Cap'n Kellin commented on Blog Post 2-1156583704
8/26/2006 - 10:33
Don't take this personally or anything, but I absolutely can't stand Evanescence. Maybe it's the whiny vocals or the over-the-top emo-rock lyrics of their current singles. I dunno. Kudos to you if you like them, but I still cringe whenever I hear them on the radio. :O

7/19/2006 - 9:30
Ah, I getcha. I definitely don't think having it one way or another would "ruin" it. It's especially stupid if they're trying to be all high and mighty about it but are completely wrong, like you had pointed out. The worst thing that can happen with the transformers movie is that it'll be like X3, which had to be taken as a completely seperate entity to enjoy.
Cap'n Kellin commented on Blog Post 2-1153240722
7/18/2006 - 23:31
Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't *you* the one getting bent out of shape about this? People can have their opinions about it, and you and I both know that geeks gripe about stuff INCESSANTLY, whether it matters or not. So because someone complains about nostalgia they're all of a sudden "not a true fan"? I for one haven't seen anything Transformers since the original, except for Beast Wars, but I still consider myself a nostalgic fan, and so what if I'd prefer to see Prime look the way he originally did? If you're going to be this critical about people having opinions about stuff, then maybe you *should* "get the hell out of fandom". "Shut the F*ck up", my ass!

Well said, and I agree with you. I'm one hundred percent addicted to their Flannel Flashback Lunch. I keep hearing awesome schnapp like Run DMC and really obscure Nirvana and NIN.

I definitely know how you feel. I work with alot of people who are freshman or sophomores in college, which normally isn't that different, but I graduated from High School 6 years ago. I concur about the 'what was I thinking in HS?' comment. Having a 19-year-old friend ask "hey, can you buy me some beer?" makes one feel old as well.

Yeah, I saw you're an Admin there. Moderator, actually, even though it says "admin" on it. I would've applied if I had the time. I was strongly considering it...

That crazy squall last week...Sam & I got caught in it as it rolled in. We were driving from South Milwaukee up to 76th street, and it was a scene right outta ID4. It seriously looked like a big-ass spacecraft comin' right for us!

It was good to see you at the con, too. I'm sorry to hear about your g/f situation, but be sure to consider that you probably wouldn't want a significant other in EC when you live in GB. That would suck.

Yeah, it kind of did. I'll be alright, but it sure is sore, all the way down to my big toe.

I'm glad you liked Japanica. Sam/Taeliac and I discovered it by accident a few years back, and it's been our favorite restaurant ever since. (especially for cheap lunch!)Their Chicken/Ton-Katsu and sushi bento box lunches are also quite tasty.

That was really fun yesterday, and that movie was wholly entertaining. I kind of want to put "FUCK EVIL" across some old gloves of mine, just for shits 'n giggles.

I have no idea what's going on with me and my better three-quarters for New Year's, so I'll definitely get back to you once we know!
