benson and stabler

Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of underage pr0n

kat8cha has a reminder for LJ:

"You seem to have forgotten, dear LJ, that we LJ users? Have no life. We sit at work, in class, at the coffee shop, while playing with our kids, and we *manically refresh livejournal*. When away from the computer and internet and livejournal we go into withdrawal. Then we post about it as soon as we find an internet connection.

Fandom is not just another group of people. We are not passive. We are ... well, really fucking annoying. And we're *not* going to just go away.

We might calm down at some point. But that is not the end of it. That is only a lull as we go to sleep, or get something to eat, or fetch fresh supporters for our cause.

We're the type of people who camp outside movie theatres LJ. I have my tent. You got yours?"

Context is not going away.

A humorous succinct summary...

looking_spiffy has a fairly accurate take on the last day and a half:

WfI: PEEEEEEEEEEEEDOOOOOOOOOOOOO *waves sword*
LJ: !!! *baleet*
WfI: HO HO HO HO *triumphant laughter* *more sword waving*
LJ: *baleet baleet*
Fandom, et al: Wtf baleet?
Rumours: *pop up*
LJ: *BALEET BALEET BALEET*
Fandom, et al: OMG!

*Livejournal implodes, panic on the streets, civilisations crumble*

WfI: HO HO HO HO *insert comic book-style triumphant speech*
Fandom, et al: *insert comic book-style defiant speech*
LJ: ... *slinks away quietly*
Fandom, et al: FOR GREAT JUSTICE *creates forty thousand Strikethrough icons*

~~Some time later~~

LJ: *sidesteps in*
Fandom, et al: *BLAZE BLAZE BLAZE RAGE WTF UP IN ARMS BOYCOTT WTF WTF*
LJ: Um. *clears throat*
Fandom, et al: ????
LJ: Um um. Fail. Sry.
Ninja: FIRST
Fandom, et al: NO U! EPIC FAIL! EPIC-EST OF ALL FAILS! *BANG* *long pause* Ah wish ah knew how to quit you...

~~To be continued, undoubtedly~~

Context is, well, you know.

In response to the hoopla over strikeoutgate or whatever the hell you want to call it

aamusedinatx on the "incident"

"LJ/SixApart broke one cardinal rule in community: You didn't set a framework for communicating what you were doing and why. When you do that, wankers with victim complexes larger than developing countries rush in to fill that vacuum. Mass hysteria and mob rule take over a normally sedate homestead on the web.

Once people are done stapling the back of their wrist to their forehead I hope they get over themselves and go back to their damp and dirty little corners. For me, I'm tired of it. I've been through it far too often. My sympathy right now lies with Barak Berkowitz who seriously under estimated the noise of the disgruntled."

dejablu503 defeats stupid people, one parent at a time.

The woman in front of me was tongue lashing her daughter, perhaps age 15ish...for being a fat slob. In mom's basket were cookies, chips, and frozen prepackaged foods like TV dinners, etc. The girl was nearly in tears, swearing she was trying...and not cheating. Mom kept at her, loudly proclaiming how important appearance was, and how embarrassed she was for her daughter(mom was about 130 pounds dripping wet and clearly had spent hours putting her face on before she slipped into her $300 suit to go grocery shopping). I couldn't take it....so I spoke up pointing out to the mom that some mom's would be happy to have a plump healthy daughter over a sick skinny one in good clothes. She snorted and said "I see you could stand to loose a few pounds too little miss nosy". My reply, "yup, if I wanted to I would... to my advantage I have less invested in cheaply made designer clothes, anti-depressants and therapy than you do and I'm okay with me as I am. Lucky for me, I never had a psycho bitch mom beating me down in public and making me feel worthless for being who I am". It got pretty quiet around the check out, she did not say another word to her daughter in front of me... and after she left, the store manager gave me a bottle of wine and the checker gave me a hug. Vi will be very happy with the wine.

Context hates fattie bashers.

aargh, matey!

hugh_mannity summarizes POTC3:

I thought it went:
PLOT TWIST PLOT TWIST PLOT TWIST PLOT TWIST PLOT TWIST (why is all the rum gone?) PLOT TWIST PLOT TWIST PLOT TWIST (why is all the rum gone?)PLOT TWIST PLOT TWIST PLOT TWIST PLOT TWIST PLOT TWIST PLOT TWIST PLOT TWIST(why is all the rum gone?) PLOT TWIST PLOT TWIST END.


And the reason all the rum is gone: Keith Richards.


QWP, from the comments section, Context once snorted his father's ashes (then had rum!)

A Tale of Tragedy

cribbins has to watch health and safety videos during work experience. The experience is... interesting.

It's a series of jumpcuts between men lifting stuff up suddenly from the ground and then screaming and writhing around in their bestest ham acting pain, Troy doomily exclaiming "DON'T JERK" over each one and then cutting away to a shot of a hand taking a blowtorch to the base of some plastic skeleton's back, the whole effect being they're tormented by an ethereal voodoo goblin with access to welding equipment. The end result was so bizarre I cannot even begin to explain but was stifling laughter with my hands by this point and had tears rolling down my face. I should point out that one of these victims had a foot long beard jutting out from his face like an Amish patrician. It was beautiful.

Anyways, we finally get to the point that signals the end of Jed's shoe-tying career. As Jed's quite happily drilling up the road, Troy gravely tells us "he's got all the right equipment: helmet, goggles, toe guards, but while you can protect people from the world around them, you can rarely protect them FROM THEMSELVES".

The drill becomes stuck.

Jed jerks the drill from the ground.

Suddenly the screen is filled with an apocalyptic nuclear mushroom cloud.

Apparently, Jed has exploded.


If you fear you too may have trouble remembering not to jerk or toast paper, you may want to see the rest of the post.

pegkerr may be having a bad day.

I live with Agents of C.H.A.O.S. Dear Heaven above, WHAT did I ever do to deserve this . . . this hellacious disorder which is my daily life? What massive cosmic debt did I acquire in another life? Am I being punished for something? WHAT? WHAT? Raping baby seals or destroying Alderaan or introducing tobacco to Europe or killing Joan of Arc? WHAT THE HELL DID I DO TO DESERVE THIS?


Context is mopping the floor.

Another hilarious and accurate summary

Someone came in late on news and asked what they missed. funkicarus summed up the situation beautifully here.


basicly it went down like this:

lj: yes but under free spee-
fundies: WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOUR SPONSERS AND TAKE AWAY YOUR MONEY(note: not sure if this is what the case was)
lj: SHIIIIIIIIT *deletes 500 journals without warning*

meanwhile...

random fandom: what the?! our draco/sephiroth roleplay journal got deleted for pedophilia!!?!
lj: *REFUSES TO TELL ANYONE ON LIVEJOURNAL WHATS GOING ON*
fandom: EXPLANATION PLZ
lj: *talks to news websites but not its own website*

then, later...

lj: holy shit we deleted all these fandom journals and now the fandoms are PISSED OFF we are in so deep man
fandom: RAWR BEHOLD ALL THAT IS LJ DRAMA AND TREMBLE
lj: we are trembling. okay listen fandom we really fucked up we are super super sorry and we will try to fix it.
