It occurred to me last night that folks on dA seem to think I am a man; because I've been drawing a lot of fighting game girls as of late, which if you are unaware are often in some less then practical wear and are prone to being quite busty.

It's kind of weird for someone to comment that something is 'sexy', then after talking to me for a little bit and realizing I am a girl (i have a picture of myself up on my profile...)they back-peddle and say it is now 'cute' and change their language from sounding attracted to being neutral.



The other day a guard said the patronizing 'sweet roll' line to my wood elf, I put on my Dark Brotherhood gear and equipped the Blade of Woe then snuck up behind him, slit his throat and took all his inventory off him leaving a single sweet roll in the inventory. Then I dragged his body to the river that runs through Markarth and dumped him over the waterfall into the barren followed shortly by his clothing and weapons.

I have done this three times over the past 2 days. I have no regrets.

There was at least a decade long gap between when I watched it and read said article. It tends to happen, and there's stuff you didn't pick up on the first time around, technological advances and "maturing". Like playing old ass games/re-watching old movies/re-reading old ass books/comics. Stuff like that. I use to drink "Bud Ice" when it was easy to score, but since them I've expanded the ol' beer pallet.

Of course, there's also some stuff I was super into when i was younger and too dumb to realize it was terrible. That stuff that sounds a lot like "Limp Bizkit." YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!


EDIT: That being said, I'm fairly certain Farscape is still better than 90% of the new programming that's being aired on SyFy these days.

I wonder if I am the only one who still thinks it's stupid that SciFi changed the spelling of the channel name.

Are you trying to imply that anything could be better than Megashark versus Giant Octopus? Blasphemy.

I said 90%. There's still 10% of goodness, saved for hybird animal fights.

Except for Sharktopus. That movie was HUGE let down on several levels. Sharktopus can do DIAF

That awkward moment when your boyfriends conservative Christian mother comments "So I think someone mentioned you where Atheist or something".



I must go, my planet needs me.

Religion discussions are awkward territory. Nothing like having someone talk about their faith and their lord and the customs just to have you go "Uh... I don't really believe in any of that."

I think it's just like having someone come up to you and warble about ponies or Homestuck for several minutes and you go "Uh... I don't really like any of that."

"Did you just compare fandoms to religions?"

Yes.

/snort/
His mom tends to very openly discuss hell and not worshiping god and what not, so I don't think she realized I wasn't just 'not very religious'. It's always awkward to silent sit around as someone unknowingly says you personally are a bad person and going to hell. AWWWKWARRRDDD. SO I think at some point Boyfriend might have mentioned to her that I was atheist and comments like that can be hurtful.

It went better then I imagined though.

Is it bad I'm compelled to see what "50 shades of grey" is about... no matter how scarred I might be after reading it?

Age is no excuse for having liked the Bizkit.

Nope. And you'll enjoy this: I once read an article quoting a SyFy executive who said that they changed the name of the channel to "feminize the product" so that it would "appeal more to women."

WRONG. Revelations is a very trippy ending.

Yes. Don't you fucking read that. If you must, don't pay for it.

Yep. You know we lady-folks just can't get enough "Y"s.

Guys...I just got feedback from my advisor for the last time until I have to go and pick a new advisor. We really bonded as writers, and it's really emotional, and I'm sitting here reading his critique and crying and drinking iced coffee.

I'm like, "Really? He thinks I'm an amazing writer? Mark, you're amazing tooooo! BUUUUUHUHUHUHUHUHUUUUHHH!"

I've never cried on the last day of school. I didn't cry when I left my family to move to NYC. This is a new experience, man.

Have you been talking to Brandon? Because he used the same phrase for Argonian fandom.

Because women need feminized things to be attracted to a product.

Sam- My friend Molly keeps trying to get me to read it. I am beside myself with laughter at these readings I found.
