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.

The first poster obviously only has a superficial knowledge of DBZ. Anybody who actually watched the show would clearly remember that Krillin played an important (if secondary) role in almost all of the major battles.

He’s delivered life-saving Sensu Beans to several characters at critical moments, used his Destructo Disc to slice off Frieza’s tail, and helped track down Dragon Balls on multiple occasions!

And, of course, he landed himself a smokin’ hot android wife.
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Damn, that’s some fucked up shit.
I don’t even know what to say.

It’s disgusting that any group of people would be attacked like this, especially a group of people who are already receive more than their fair share of hate from the Internet.

And to have the attack happen at a place like a con, where people go to be among like minded individuals and just have a good time… absolutely disgusting.

I hope the person gets caught, and I hope they get the full power of the law brought against them.

Thanks for the article, bit of a stub at the moment, but definitely something to keep an eye on over the next month.

Man, if you really thought I was being serious, that’s kinda sad.

When the emotional abuse against Eron Gjoni was being silenced from Something Aweful and NeoGaf, KYM was there to document it.

When the media lashed out at the gaming community and banned any dissenting voices, KYM was there.

When Reddit mods shadowbanned anyone who so much as upvoted GG content, KYM was there.

When moot cast his lot with Gawker and banned Gamergate from 4chan, KYM was there.

When the game journalists were revealed to be colluding amongst each other in mailing lists, KYM was there.

No matter what happens, we will continue to be right here, documenting everything, letting nothing escape our eye.

We’ve covered wars, you know!

Commented on South Park - PewDiePie - Youtube Commentary (Compilation)

The only games I watch other people play would be e-sports kind of stuff, where I’m watching gamers at a professional level of play that I could never reach. I’d rather play a game and hone my own skills the rest of the time.

Mostly Dota and Hearthstone (and even then, usually only highlights).

There’s no division. It’s a complete migration.

Question for the mods:
I keep noticing that images in the gallery are being removed; mostly tweets, even if they’re directly related to stuff that’s going on with Gamergate.

Could you care to explain why these images are being removed?

Fellow Gamergate supporters of KYM, lend me your energy!
