I feel like I should type something in this box here.
Because I’m trying to do that every day, as a method of tracking my moods and coherency for future reference in evaluating the effectiveness of these unpleasant psychiatric drugs I’m on.
I could post about my brain or I could post about Sei Shonagon’s brain. Different sets of problems with those two brains. I hope, anyway? I hope I don’t have Sei Shonagon’s problems, buried deep within me. I re-read half of The Pillow Book today, which is more than I’ve managed to read at a stretch in months, is where this is coming from.
I also listened episode 39 of Night Vale, and was pleased that there was a reference to Barry Hughart’s Bridge of Birds. That’s a really good book.
This has been my report on my brain, which is probably in my head still. When I knock on the side of my head, it does not make a hollow sound. (I just knocked lightly on the side of my head with my right fist.) Brain’s probably in there, it’s probably my own brain.
All of you cut that out.
Sorry, but I said it on a blog so you have no choice.
All of you cut that out.
Anonymous asked: Please do not defend 13yr olds posting nude pictures. That is disgusting.
Your reading comprehension skills impress me immensely.
sqbr replied to your post: sqbr asked:Almost Human …
Haha no that’s Being Human. Almost Human is about robots. But also kinda disappointing, so.
When will we switch over to Troll naming conventions? When?
If I get any more of these I’m just going to make up a whole plot of what I think it should be like. Moomins and Battle Angel Alitas as far as the eye can see.

p. much only LotRO. Rift has an unfortunate proportion of skimpy armor but there are more options, and pants, a little ways into the game.
I tried LotRO, but couldn’t handle the cognitive dissonance of the fact that it was an MMO set in Lord of the Rings. I cannot psychologically handle getting fetch quests from Aragorn, it is damaging.
I’ve been messing around with Rift because of your guys’ screenshots, but am getting cheesed off at the armor. Even WoW lets you put a shirt on under the stupid-looking stuff. Also my character’s body parts keep glitching and hanging in the air. Today I left her butt on a stairwell.
Oh yikes, those are some glitches D: I’ve only gotten a couple of weird things like that — mostly I get polygon spikes when my video card needs a break.
The armor does get better not too far in, but what really helps is the wardrobe armor slots. I often pick quest reward armor that either sucks or my character can’t even wear because of class restrictions, so I can use it cosmetically. So long as your character meets the level requirements, they can wear any item in a wardrobe slot.
(I’m also glad that the game allows for dyeing things, because some of the colors armor comes in are terrible.)
What class are you playing? I’ve noticed that lady warriors have the longest to wait in the armor with actual coverage department. Short sleeves unfortunately abound in all classes, but they seem to be fairly equal opportunity, at least.
If you’re on the faeblight shard and want to stick with it a little longer, let me know what level your character is and I’ll see if my alt can whip up a non-stupid set of cosmetic armor. Leather or cloth only, but hey. Pants.
I haven’t yet lost my head, but I live in hope! My favorite was the time I lost my torso, didn’t notice because my cloak stayed put, and then came across it again in what I guess was the spot in which it glitched out. A torso-less woman comes across her missing torso, hovering frozen mid-stride in a field, wearing a purple metal bikini, ignored by the mutant wolves prowling nearby. It is found art.
And yeah, I chose a warrior. I couldn’t figure out how to get the cosmetic-only items to activate; it looked like the option was locked when I was messing with it. Is there a minimum-level requirement or something?
I have no idea what server I’m on, and the computer with the game on it is elsewhere for a couple days, but thank you for the offer.
re: underage cosplayers in homestuck
THIS. FUCKING THIS THIS THIS
in addition: don’t tell us you’re underage if you’re reading our porn, because that totally fucks us over legally. we cannot be deliberately and knowingly providing obscene material to minors, and if you think about it laws like that are good and exist for good reasons. but still, please be responsible enough to keep us safe like we’re trying to keep you safe.
yes this. even if i tagged everything properly, even if you went through the ao3 ‘are you old enough to see this’ screen and lied, if you tell me you’re underage and reading my porns, i could be held responsible. i get panicky just thinking about it. don’t play me like that.
i’ve also had underage peeps want to play shippy fantroll rp with me. NO THAT WILL NEVER EVER HAPPEN NO. a judge would not care that we were writing collaborative fiction about imaginary characters. they would see a 40+ year old man sending love notes to a kid. i would go to jail.
if you are underage you are radioactive. don’t trick us into breaking the law.
Also, if you live in the USA you can be prosecuted as a sex offender for distributing child porn even if the pictures are of yourself. Even if you pinky swear that no adult pushed you into it. Your parents could be prosecuted. You could be removed from their custody. You could end up on the sex offender registry, right alongside that guy who took a piss in a public park and Grandma called 911.
These laws exist to take away potential prosecution loopholes from adult predators, but the law is a blunt instrument and it will fuck you up.
Okay, obviously people are upset about coming across pictures of naked kids while looking for Homestuck stuff - it’s something that freaks me out, too. But the legal situations being described in the first few posts here are, at least in the United States, astonishingly unlikely.
Cut because this got really long:
sqbr asked: Almost Human
There are supernatural creatures hanging out together and trying to not be jerks? And then the internet says ”Almost Human, I am very disappointed in you.” I don’t know why!
It is exactly the same thing as Farscape.
Detective Conan is also exactly the same thing as the comic where Loki and the Midgard serpent solve crimes in modern Japan.
rememberwhenyoutried asked: Lexx?
There is a lady who wears very little clothes and travels the galaxy causing problems. Things are confusing and loud. It is not the same thing as Farscape.
kentsarrow asked: true detective!
Never heard of it, so I’m going to pretend this is about Detective Conan. There’s a kid who’s actually a magically-transformed adult who’s a detective, and he solves crimes for a woman he’s in love with. She doesn’t know he’s not really a kid. This sort of setup is, I guess, psychologically comforting to straight dudes who don’t actually want to risk rejection by talking to women? He’s forced to be the Nice Guy (TM), it’s not his fault! This children’s anime is thus implicitly aware that being a Nice Guy (TM) is in fact a shameful thing, and is as such doing better than most of Reddit.
I don’t know why I selected Detective Conan for this. I just ticked myself off over it, and that wasn’t the point of this exercise.
