Feeling: changing
Listening to: Death - The Exorcist (Individual Thought Patterns studio outtake)

I'm not gonna bother going back and changing the address on all those old posts, but if you're old enough that you still use email, don't use realfrogfarm at Gmail to contact me any more. As of 2014 I'm deleting Google from my life. It's not "the" thing that goes straight to the source of the pain, but I'm feeling immensely better already.

How to get in touch with me:

- If you're on Livejournal you can send private messages, or (even better) use LJ Talk to chat with me using any Jabber client.

- I also permaidle in irc://irc.blitzed.net/#drhorrible if you're ancient enough for IRC.

- My webpages at anerispress.com are being flaky right now, but email still works fine and you can send me email as frogfarm at that domain.

That's it. Still kicking. Love to hear from you.

Feeling: better

Something pulls me back in.

Feeling: annoyed

I was fine with letting this Livejournal serve mostly as an archive, but apparently it's been bitten by the disappearing comments bug. The suckiest aspect of this is that the comments by other people on my posts were often/usually better than the posts themselves, particularly in some cases (shout outs to stormwreath and beer_good_foamy). Reports of this bug go back almost a year, so I don't anticpate it being fixed any time soon. Thanks, LJ, for continuing to contribute to the slow decay and Babelization of fandom, and for sucking in general.

Or rather, yet another symptom of one of the many reasons.

Noah Berlatsky attacks Joss Whedon's speech on "Equality is the Natural Order & the word Genderist", claiming Whedon needs feminist indoctrination, and to get rid of his white male privilege

And my only reaction to this flagrant act of cannibalism:



Welcome to the cannibal pot, kids.

You're not voting yourselves out of it.

Listening to: Rolling Stones - Dance (Pt. 1)

Losing your religion:

"In the years since I started working on Sewer, Gas, a number of folks -- most of them white -- have suggested to me that this is not a tasteful line of speculation. Probably not; but I knew from the first that it was an excellent hook."



Being raped to sleep by dickwolves:

"Yeah yeah, you think rape is wrong, but that's not what our beef was. It was that you talked about it wrong. It was that you talked about it at all. You're just making it worse now because you didn't just let us criticize you in silence. We say you are trivializing rape, and unless you agree you are trivializing rape and apologize for that, or just shut up, you will be trivializing it even more."

"It's not important that Gabe thinks rape is wrong, it's not important that no one is being threatened by actual dickwolves, it's not important that no encouragement of rape has occurred and no one has actually been hurt. What's important is that Gabe blundered his way into the discussion like an oaf and refused to follow the rules of PC, or acceptance of feelings without questioning if those feelings are defensible or not. He was sarcastic with the wrong social group, he was dismissive of those labeled as the dismissed, and he dared to even consider himself, a white heterosexual male, as attacked by the criticism leveled at him such that he felt the need to defend himself."

"No amount of actual discussion can take place as long as the critics view the very act of counterargument as morally indefensible because of the class or gender of the defenders, or the language used. Only one side is accusing the other of being scum, only one side is insisting that the other side should just shut up and stop speaking their mind. And it's not Team Dickwolves."

The hardest part here would have been coming up with any comedy that wasn't part and parcel of the darkness. And I never did decide how to end it. Otherwise, I truly believe this would have been truly awesome.

Faith the Vampire Slayer, Season 4: Season of Death

[Posting before perishing with the caveat that a full description for 4x15 will be posted when its true author can spare the time, and so let us all hope for Somercet's speedy recovery, whose current condition greatly impacts his typing ability.]

God, if this were a real Joss show, I'd be wanting to slit my wrists after the S4 finale. And so would everyone else.

Partly to soften the blow, I've prefaced this season's posting with an extra special bonus feature known as "Bits I wasn't sure where they should go", most of which are cuddly and full of aww.

mostly cuddly and full of awwCollapse )

See? Wasn't that fun? Everybody say it with me: Aww... Enjoy it while you can.

Suckers...

And now, the penultimate season, season the fourth, the season of death. Which is so obvious you can totally see it coming as always in the episode titles:

Most if not all of Richard Mitchell's is freely available online at The Underground Grammarian. I just acquired used copies of his first two books for the princely total sum of eight bucks. The first, Less Than Words Can Say, is and will forever be one of the finest pieces of writing and thought ever produced.

Final two season summaries will be posted as soon as I receive final edits from someone else. Deja this vu.

Every time I go up north, it feels like this load has been lifted I didn't even realize was there. In a similar fashion, everything in my life that feels close to what I'd call a spiritual experience has been moments of enjoying/contemplating the natural world. The achievements of humanity are stirring but temporal. Both are a necessary part of our lives.

A quick aside on non-FtVS material. While I haven't entirely ruled out the possibility of writing other fanfic or even original fiction, moving on from FtVS can't help but feel like leaving behind the rest of fandom.

I am so fucking rock

January 26th, 2013 (01:09 pm)
Tags: ,

First of all, to anyone turning into my mother, yes I went to the damn doctor -- only because she and my stepdad called to tag-team badger my dad and I until we did what they thought was sensible. And I heard EXACTLY WHAT I EXPECTED TO HEAR: Normal blood work, normal EKG, normal chest Xray, here's a scrip for ibuprofen, thank you drive through. Fuck you very much, medical establishment. But I'm more irrited at mom, whose concern, while certainly appreciated, was at least moderately irrational -- more so than usual for her, given her intelligence and wisdom -- and more than mildly insulting, granting me little to no credit for any agency or ability to make competent decisions. No mom, I am not being stubborn or trying to be a doctor, I am making a common sense decision like a rational adult. And of course the spirit of the stairway kicked in the next day when I realized I could have reminded her (not that it would have done any good) that my SO *and* dad both backed up my decision not to go to a doctor, BASED ON THEIR DIRECT AND ONGOING PERSONAL OBSERVATION OF ME.

End of rant. Cause you know I still love her. Duh.

So I'm still in pain, though it's a lot better and I'm no longer popping opiates except for the fun of it. Even shoveled a little light snow. Then I needed something more cerebral, so I went back to reading up on HTML5/CSS3 and dusting off my rusty skills. Got a nice little single-page experiment going, 5k of HTML and a 12k style sheet that does gradient-shaded buttons with flyout submenus, AND (I love this part) in-page loading of links without reloading the page itself. EAT THAT IN YOUR FACE, JAVASCRIPT.

(Also, I found out archive.org's instructions on embedding could be easily modified to use EMBED instead of IFRAME. Now as soon as all these online services start using HTML5, these Flash jerks will be first against the wall when the revolution comes.)

After all that, if you're still reading, you will now be rewarded with an animated GIF I created this morning in celebration of having accomplished all of the above:

Finally I made one of the things I said should be madeCollapse )

You and I, me, we, probably feel a bit like Willow: Is there anybody out there? Yes, there is.

Hang in there. Fight back. Live life.
