      Doctor Who stuff under the cut. Wait, this isn't Tumblr. How do I put a cut? Do I just space it a lot of times? Aight, Doctor Who spoilers at the bottom of the spaces.

      EDIT: I forgot about spoiler tags. Those work better. Also I couldn't do any more than three spaces. Thanks, Obama.

      Doctor Who should not be the reason I can't sleep, but that episode was terrifying. Absolutely terrifying. That made every Weeping Angel episode look like a Scooby Doo episode.

      So I deleted that image because I didn't blur out some information that I should've blurred [<3 to @john for notifying me] but yes. I am returning to Oregon State University in the fall. It won't be full-time, and it won't be as an English / Education major. This time I'm going in to hopefully get a degree in Sociology, with a focus on Criminal Studies. I figure it'll be the most beneficial for me, as Hull has become so pivotal and I'd like to have some experience in that field.

      Here's to things being better the second time around.

      Just finished rewatching Season 10. Damn that ending was great. Script, scene, music, everything. Now I return to the engrossing depths of Game of Thrones.

      What TV shows are at the top of your list these days?

      SHIT. Missed RT's 10th anniversary. This is what happens when I'm going back and forth between not believing every news article I see and browsing Imgur.

      Congrats on 10 years, Rooster Teeth. Thanks for giving me a home away from home when I needed it most.

    • What Defines the Criminal?

      6 years ago

      James

      So lately I've been reading a number of crime books to better prepare myself when writing Hull - Volume II. I started by doing quite a bit of research on the Black Dahlia case, and man, if anyone's played L.A. Noire, the game really didn't do it justice. Not to say that the case should be regarded as something.. good? It was horrific. I've yet to come across any unsolved incident as gruesome as it. If you want details, I'll refer you to a website containing excerpts from the coroner's report, as well as photographs taken at the time, but here's a very serious disclaimer: what the murderer did was horribly violent and sadist. Don't go here if you're not prepared to deal with it.

      After studying that, I've started venturing into other cold cases and will soon begin my journey into an anthology of crimes committed in the United States during the 20th century. The book that's really caught my attention right now, though, is called "A Cold Case," and it's done so by setting up a case in which you, the reader, get to know the murderer on a much deeper level. What started as a double-homicide followed by the man going dark for 30 years has turned into seeing this 70-year old man who wanted to enact his own form of justice on another man who was the scum of the earth. You see more and more how the murderer justifies what he did, and personally? It makes sense. I can't say I think what he did was right, but I understand it.

      And then I realized that not only did I empathize with the murderer, I found myself getting mad when the four children of one of the murdered men came up and demanded justice for having had their father taken away at such a young age. I was legitimately upset that these four people, who knew nothing about the man who had murdered their dad, immediately assumed he was the scum of the earth and should be thrown in jail for life. Because suddenly, in my mind, they were no better than the murderer. They, just as he had, wanted justice enacted on an individual that would last their entire life, whether that life be another hour[in the case of the murdered man] or another 20 to 30 years[in the case of the murderer.]

      I haven't finished the book yet, but I can guess he is sentenced to life in prison and the case is closed. And that disappoints me. I'm not saying what he did was right. But I'm also not saying what he did was wrong. We all enact our own personal justice all the time, don't we? We right wrongs we have witnessed or performed because we are instilled with a moral compass. Sometimes, those compasses may differ, but they're still our definition for morality. And the murderer was by no means "insane" or "psychopathic." He was just a man, with a wife, with brothers and sisters, a mother, a job, and a want to make a man suffer for the damage he'd caused so many others.

      So my question for you guys is, what defines the criminal? And I don't want an answer so simple as "the law," because that would make a lot of good people classified as criminals. Download a song? Criminal. Go a little over the speed limit? Criminal. Cross the street when the little white dude isn't on the panel? Criminal. TEAR THE TAG OFF A MATTRESS?!

      CRIMINAL.

      There aren't many things that smell so bad it makes me leave my home to find a smell supplement.

      Tonight, I discovered that cat piss on a full laundry basket is one of those things.

      Xbox disc reader is broken. Luckily it's still in warranty so there won't be any costs other than shipping, but because I live in podunk Oregon, I won't have my sweet baby for pretty much all of February.

      I am going to get a metric shit ton of reading done. Maybe work out a little. Try meditating some.

      Or I'll just be like this:

      I was thinking about going to RvBOR this year, but I don't have the funds for tickets and travel this year, and I also don't have the time, evil summer school, but hopefully next year.

      Wow, what's with the nooob below me? Howdy James!!!! I just wanted to add something here to kinda spruce up and get that big ugly gray box out of the way. I mean.. really, it's the internet... who cares about popularity on the internet? It's like winning an argument with a 19 year old in another country - what have you achieved at the end of it? NOTHING. The anonymity of the internet is a very interesting thing I think.. the way it gives people this insane courage - I hate it, because it allows people to run their mouths non-stop without having to suffer any sort of real world repercussions. They're allowed to blather on and on and on, much like this fellow below me did - where as in a real life conversation, I fully expect he would've been stopped before even finishing the first paragraph... whether that would've been the result of a flying Malacy Irish Drunk Kick to the face, or a Ankle Attack via Saun it really doesn't matter.

      But either way, like I said.. I wanted to hide the ugly gray box from the annoying person below me. Hahaha. I don't even know him, and I've never really interacted with him, but I consider you a good close friend James, and therefore - I do not care for this.. Leo person. Actually.. now that I think about it, I was on Turntable with him once, and all he did was bitch and whine and cry whenever his song got lamed. His song? Spice Girls. You know, because a room full of men wanted to listen to Spice Girls. (No offense Barb.) But he was stingy about cool'ing other peoples songs, whether he 'liked' them or not. He also wanted to try and install a time-limit-rule for the songs everyone else played. Hahaha, yeah, I definitely don't like him either.


      James!!!! I'll see you in a month!!! <3<3<3<3<3<#<##<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3!!!!!!!111!1!11!!!

      I just saw the conversation between you and Saun and just wanted to go ahead and address it since " yes i agree with Mal, that is why we hate him."

      I've been #1 on Most Modded for a lot longer than I have been commenting on people's journals and I'm fairly certain it's from me posting in the Greatest Internet Images topic and Animated Gif topic as there are many frequenters there who mod almost everything I post. In addition whenever I comment on the first page of a comic, staff entry, or something of the likes I either get major posi or negative mod points. I barely get any mod points from commenting on people's journals and if it strikes your fancy I'll screenshot my mod history and show you that it is mainly forum posts.

      I don't care about being #1 most modded. It doesn't affect me either way. The amount of time I spend commenting on people's journals is probably way less time than say you spend on TeamSpeak. I have a lot of downtime at work and have pretty much been told to be doing something on the computer to seem like I'm busy, catch is though that I can't be wearing headphones or have audio coming from my computer. That pretty much gets rid of 99% of the entertaining things I'd be able to do online so I've decided that I'd start reading journals to kill time. I've also come to the conclusion that a lot of the journals I post on I'm the only person who reads and comments on that person's journal. Which might just make them stay on the community side of Rooster Teeth which has been dwindling over the past few years.

      I don't really see why me commenting on people's journals or even the fact that I'm #1 Most Modded should make you all "hate" me, especially since it has no impact on you, but I'm sad to have seen that. I really liked you and Saun from RTLive and RoosterSpeak, but apparently I was under the wrong impression and assumed that you two enjoyed the few interactions we have had. I'm not into internet drama and that's why I've blocked Mal and a handful of other people because I don't have any intentions of having a negative experience on RT or online for that matter. I've got enough problems that arise in my physical life that I don't need to add to it. So if you and Saun have decided that you "hate" me and don't want to have anything to do with me I'm sorry to hear that and good luck on your future endeavors.
