NPR had an interesting disucssion on yesterday's "Talk of the Nation" program: Popularity of Japanese Manga & Anime I didn't have a chance to hear it really closely, but it seemed interesting enough


I heard a story yesterday about a fellow who would vent about work in his personal blog & he ended up getting fired for it. >.o ! Scary.. I don't think my random vents about certain coworkers will get me fired though.. Speaking of which, yesterday some consultants at work approached me with a brochure for a workshop seminar called "The Outstanding Receptionist" - & they were asking me how would I feel if I was approached & asked to attend, and how would I feel if I was the only one asked to go. Long story short, the Supervisor wants a coworker to attend - My feeling is that it will take more then a day seminar for this gal to get a new attitude, but hey..that's just me.

I hadn't chatted with online pal Dunley for a long time & It was nice to chat w/her again. While talking to her about the recent Hydeist BBS drama she asked me if I thought a lot of the older fans were disappearing. I think after the USA debut, the fandom got much larger, younger & incredibly annoying- - or is it just me? ##$*&(* Stop posting my Leciel scans idiots kthnkxsbye fangirliness seems to multiply faster then hydeist viruses I've tried to be more cautious about where I post official pics, but apparently not cautious soon enough because I keep seeing them on Tofu bbs.. arghh And the worse thing is that the image doesn't show up once, but multiple times because apparently the squealing teenie monsters have not yet figured out how to edit quotes ..


Hugs to sedefend who I missed yesterday ~ more hugs & good thoughts to hkoneko & her Grandma

that's hardly an excuse though - when I met up with misato & domo online -(they were some of my earliest online friends) they were just wee little ones ^.~ ... & neither was net clueless or annoying!

see that's my point, they can be less stupid, i think they just choose not to be -_- and people like that stay that way. they should be more considerate and responsible- i was their age not too long ago (it even feels weird saying that i'm older than most of them... i was always the youngest heh ^_^;) but i dont remember being obnoxious... much ._.

Hydeist bbs drama? I must've missed something unless it was the birthday messages disappearing thing, hahaha!

Excuse me but, omgwtf is WRONG with people? You try & do nice things for people & look what they do. More and more reasons why I dislike fandoms in general. Times like these I wanna scream DON'T OPEN INTERNATIONALLY, HYDEIST! But that could just have me look like a selfish bitch now wouldn't it? Hahaha.

I think my IQ drops everytime I look at that bbs which is why I DON'T. Mind, I'm not very fond of forums to begin with. Ok ok exceptions can be made Hydeist bbs but still. Hahahah yeah.

it's not just you. i dont dare wander in the l'arc en ciel part of the forum.WHY are all the topics called "HYDE HOME GRRLZ!" or "MORE HAWT PIX OF HAIDOOOOO!!" >__<

this is why i'm kinda glad TM is less popular. although that group of fans is getting larger too... and consequently more annoying and juvenile >.>

Oh yes; actual topics:

more Hyde pics... this one's for the girls! (which, mind you, is 293 pages long, 60% of which are nothing but pictures being re-quoted as Helayne mentioned, and DOES contain Hydeist pictures)

Hyde Homegirls!!!!!

Hyde to America? (I'm honestly afraid to see what that one's all about...)

And I believe there's also a thread about who is better, Sakura or Yuki. No good could EVER come from THAT debate~

I made the mistake of going there recently because... well... I'm a sucker for Hyde spam. But it's completely pointless after 8 pages (no exaggeration) of the same picture being quoted endlessly! I do make it a point not to actually read anything posted, though.

Ah yes. Such fangirls have seemed to be popping up quite a bit. There are a lot of communities I feel the urge to leave because of this. x_x;;

No, it's not just you. And it's not only in USA.
Here in my country, it's happening as well. Since SMILE, actually. Fangirls, copy bands... suddenly everyone's a big fan of Laruku, while last year they were still going, "Laru-what? Who?" And you're sooooooooo damn right about the "incredibly annoying" part.

>< makes me kinda happy / sad. (happy that more people liking laruku, but sad that they kinda abuse things and start getting excessively annoying)
