A new part... a new year! Time for resolutions, renewals, and several weeks of writing '16' instead of '17' on any and all paperwork!

Enjoy part 366!

I like to be completely shameless about loving problematic characters and identifying with them and sympathizing with them

But unfortunately I can't do that with Hetalia characters since y'know, they all represent RL countries, many of which were fascist imperialists or still are

i love problematic characters the most - i tend to prefer villains over heroes in general, unless they're really stupidly written - but i'm not sure i sympathize or identify with any of my favorite characters very much, regardless of whether they'd be considered "problematic."

i only have two modes in fandom: "entertaining because they cause chaos" or "entertaining because it's hot when they suffer"

characters i sympathize with are typically uninteresting to me from a smut/kink perspective and therefore though i might enjoy them in the canon material, i don't actually fangirl over them or particularly want to look for fanworks with them.

nice characters finish last.

is 'sort by upload date' on youtube acting funky for anyone else? for me it keeps interspersing the results with videos that were clearly uploaded months ago. is this deliberate on youtube's part? it doesn't seem to be a matter of paid promotion, judging from the cheapness of the old videos being shoved in among the newest ones. it's just irritating and pointless.

it's been doing that for months on my end. i've just been periodically going to my subs' pages rather than relying on them to show up on the front page.

but i've been annoyed ever since they got rid of the subscription categorization without even saying anything. i had my subscriptions grouped according to what kind of content they produced and it was really handy.

i don't get why these sites "upgrade" their interface to be less user-friendly but y'know

Okay with multiple historical tags being flooded with this Fate Grand Order stuff, I now understand why people got (or get, I don't check out country tags so it probably still happens) annoyed when people would use the plain country tag for Hetalia characters

"Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington died of an apparent suicide by hanging Thursday morning, according to The Associated Press. Police in Palos Verdes Estates, in Los Angeles County told TMZ that the singer's body had been discovered just before 9 a.m. The singer was 41. A representative confirmed the death to Rolling Stone.

"Shocked and heartbroken, but it's true," Bennington's fellow Linkin Park vocalist Mike Shinoda said on Twitter. 'An official statement will come out as soon as we have one.'"

Meme, I'm in shock.

Who is slowly moving her cd collection onto her computer since her Zune pretty much kicked the bucket

I guess I could dig the music files out of my Vista but these poor cds NEVER get played, so I might as well do it this way, I got nothin else goin on

OH YEAH I'm also addicted to Mort Garson's early 70s synth music lately, makes for good work music.

When you're organizing books, would you label a book that is based on the author's experiences in a historical event--but is not their memoir/autobiography--as being "historical fiction" or "memoir"?

I feel like if I label it historical fiction I'm saying that it's a fiction story... which it's technically not because it's based on what the author actually experienced! But then it's not a memoir, because it's not like the author is just telling their own story from third person, they gave the characters different names and such

(Anonymous) 2017-07-22 06:14 pm (UTC)(link)
Jesus, anon. This is hard.

I was gonna go with memoir but it's not their story, and you tell me they changed the names of the characters but the story remains the same.... historical fiction, maybe? I just think it fits better in this section, but I also think it would go in neither of these. I'd probably end up doing a whole new section just for this book. lol
