About

Wow, it’s been a really long time since I updated my wall.

Overall I’d say I’m a pretty average netizen. I watch the occasional anime when I have time, my traditional favorites being Trigun, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Starblazers (Uchuu Senkan Yamato). Also, as you can tell by my avatar, I’m a fan of MLP (though I try my best to not be obnoxious about it), and western cartoons/animation in general.

As far as gaming goes, I see myself gravitate primarily towards the indie and retro circles, though of course I love the occasional triple AAA release. I like strategy games such as Dwarf Fortress and the Civilization series, most games that Valve makes, and really anything that looks fun. These days I mostly do my gaming through Steam, and if you want to friend me here’s my profile:

I’ve always been really interested in internet culture, I think it’s really fascinating to observe how things spread and mutate over time. That’s why I’ve loved KYM so much.

Within the MLP fandom, I enjoy all the fantastic fan content our artists create. I don’t watch as many videos or listen to as much music as I used to, but I still dabble in those. Primarily these days I’m into the art and fanfiction.

Speaking of fanfiction, my only real claim to fame in this fandom would be my story, I Wasn’t Prepared For This. It received a far better reaction than I ever could have hoped for. Still, things IRL have held me back from continuing it for a long time, though I hope to bring it out of hiatus very soon.

It’s important to note that 4chan and livechan were taken down intermittently as well around the same time. Livechan in particular was down almost certainly because 8chan users were using it as a refugee service while waiting for 8chan to come back online.

>they don’t do it for free anymore.

“Besides, a Female Shepard can’t romance Tali, which is unacceptable.”
Fucking this.
FemShep is great and all, but Tali is my waifu.

Be nice, be cordial, and depending on the particular email campaign, don’t mention Gamergate.

Just speak as a concerned customer/viewer, bring up all the relevant negative stuff, mention the implications for brand reputation.

Those are the major things I can think of, anyways.

The antis are imploding. Wu is so fucking crazy that even people “on her side” like @pixelgoth are going after her.

It’s beautiful. A bunch of professional victim/e-celebs who by their very nature simply cannot work together for long without going insane and stabbing each other in the back.

What, nobody else is going to point out the brilliant reference of Love Potion No. 9?
Nobody?

8chan is STILL down?
It’s been over ten hours now, that’s an intense DDOS campaign!

I remember we were talking a lot about this back in August/September; none of this is new news, but it’s always important to bring things back to the forefront after a while, to see if anything has changed about our understanding of events and/or our capacity to do something.

Kinda crazy that this has been going on for so long, old major stuff has to be reposted just to keep it all freshly in circulation.

I like how things started getting really slow around Christmas, but now that we’re into the new year, things have started heating up again.

Seriously, we’re back to Daily Happenings at this point.

That’s a damn shame.
But, at least, Faust has something that none of those other people have: actual talent.

Overall, from what I saw of her viewpoints during her MLP days, she seems to be a pretty level-headed feminist. Even defended the brony fanbase from other radfems who hated the idea of men ‘stealing’ a show meant for girls. Hopefully she won’t drink too much of the SJW kool-aid now.

Nah, all those characters are things from Yume Nikki.
I’ve never played OFF though, maybe it draws inspiration?

I remember Yume Nikki.
Got quite a few of the Effects, but never got 100% completion. Fantastic game, very well-done ambiance.
