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.

That’s so true though. I really have become so desensitized that I barely even acknowledged the fact that he wished torture upon thousands of Internet users.

The hypocrisy is strong with these people.

Viacom is absolutely the worst company when it comes to this.
They block EVERYTHING, and they’re ruthless about it.

There’s a reason why it’s so hard to find even 5 second clips of Spongebob on Youtube.

I’m really glad Valve responded so quickly.
I love Valve, and I love their Steam service, and it would have been a really depressing moment to see them go against their customers.

The Antagonist needs to be added to that scale.

Commented on a fun game

Gah, so many options, it’s so hard to choose!

It’s a tossup between Dwarf Princess (without Beard, sorry), Desert Princess, and Knight Princess.
I’m in a warrior mood atm, so, Knight Princess/Grandfather’s Sword it is!

pffffffft, you think the Kangaroo Court at Wikipedia would let a pro-GG book pass their citation policies? Unless there’s some management changes in the time between now and when that book is published, I highly doubt they’d let it pass.

They’ll probably say it’s too biased, or some similar rubbish.

Commented on The Pirate Bay

Just like with what happened to the Silk Road, I’m sure a few enterprising coders will just create a new site that continues the PirateBay’s legacy with stronger security.

Internet sites are like hydras. Cut off their head, they grow back stronger than ever.

With its vibrant community and emphasis on remix culture, I like to imagine that Nico Nico is what Youtube would be right now if it hadn’t been turned into a mainstream vlogger, corporate shitfest.

I will forever despise Google for what they did to Youtube.

Yeah, the Quinnspiracy should really be a sub-entry of this.

Got suspended for the last three days because of bullshit, but it’s lifted now!

Ugh, being suspended from KYM sucks. Can’t even upvote/fav shit.

Commented on 2014 UK Porn Censorship Protest

Between GG and now this, what is it with all these sex-negative assholes trying to censor everything?
I mean, fine, yeah, extra measures to shut down child pornography sounds just fine by me.

But all the other stuff? Banning porn that’s considered ‘too extreme’ by completely arbitrary methods? That’s bullshit.
