    • WHY THE FUCK DOES THIS HAPPEN

      9 years ago

      TPR

      Ok, Rooster Teeth, you are starting to piss me off. I DO NOT want to sponsor you any more, I have not done for a while. I have cancelled my Paypal payments, and you still take ten dollars every so often from my fucking credit card! I cannot cancel my auto renew, because I do not HAVE a sponsorship. I'm giving you ten dollars against my will for no reason. Cunts.

    • These fsckwits irritate me

      http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/05/28/government_outlaws_pictures/

      To quote from the article itself:
      At the consultation stage for this law, some Police Forces cited manga as material they would like outlawed. Manga is an essentially Japanese art form, which can cover some quite adult themes. “Tentacle porn†and abduction by aliens are common. Crucially some of the images include individuals whose age is indeterminate or seriously young. As Home Secretary, John Reid expressed his outrage that manga and similar material was not illegal.

      Whoa whoa whoa there Home Secretary John Reid. You're going to ban an entire literary genre based on the fact that there are some, an extremely small some at that, questionable contents out there. That's like saying CP is filmed on Camcorders, therefore we should ban everything that can record moving images, it's nuts! This is gonna give manga, and subsequently manga fans, a bad name. I've got a collection of over 300 manga, but I don't want to nail a six year old.

    • Thye Anime Industry Problem

      11 years ago

      TPR

      I'm sorry, but could SOMEONE out there in the know answer me this one simple question:

      Why is it in an industry such as anime that the companies are failing badly, 'apparently' because of Fansubs causing such a terrible problem, where as in a near identical industry (Manga) Fansubs also exist, and yet the manga industry is flourishing like nobodies business?

    • A new Journal? From Me?!

      11 years ago

      TPR

      Yeah, I know, shock horror, TPR writing something new.

      Anyway, I've been having a little trouble with my PCs of late (Yes, PCs plural. I have three now. None of which are any good at ANYTHING...), with Haruka, my main PC wanting a virus scan every ten minutes, being as slow as hell and freezing ever hour, on the hour. Isn't it just typical that I have to get a damn Hypocondriac PC. Then there's Yue, my backup PC, for use when Haruka has crashed. She's barely capable of operating Firefox, and NEEDS to be replaced, but she was free, so that's not gonna happen.

      Then there's Tohru, my laptop. Performance wise, she's FINE, couldn't be happier with her on that count. However, recently, when I catch the screen at the right angle, a get a blue line running from the top to the bottom of the screen, one pixel thick. Which is the single most annoyign thing I can think of in a Laptop which is only a few months old. Now, yes, I coudl probably get her fixed by sending it back to Curries, but then I'd be without DVDs for, like, two months, since my PS2 has decided to eat everything I try to put into it that isn't Guitar Hero 2.

      On this subject, I have not yet bought GH3, and am wondering if anyone has some input into this. I have heard that it's mroe dificult than 2 to play, and it doesn't have as strong a lineup of songs as 2, either. In fact, only Through the Fire and the Flames is tempting me, right now. The other dilemma is wether to get it on PS2, Wii or other (more on this later).

      Actually, more on it right now, tbh. I recently won a full set of golf clubs through work, which sucked, because there was a 360 elite up for grabs, and the person who won that sold it within 3 days of getting it(bastard). However, I have now sold the clubs myself, and have a nice, pretty £200 sitting in my Lockbox waiting for me to spend. Now, I have a few choices with this, and Honestly want peoples opinions on what I shoudl do:

      1) The Manga Route. Spend it all on manag at Daves. Bearing in mind I recently (as in, a few days ago) Spent £90 on manga, increasing my collection from 310 to 325 volumes of varying series.

      2) ECKS BOCKS 3 SIX T. Yes, that's right. You can pick up a preowned 360 premium with a couple of decent games for £220 these days, and what with jolly old Xmas on the morror, I'll be recieving a little spare spending cash from the Rants and mates. However, do I buy beforehand, and use the money from holiday to suppliment the extra spends, or wait until after, and possibly get a NEW one for a little more?

      3) TV. I NEED a new TV. I'm currently using an old 14 inch portable which can only barely handle my consoles. I want a nice 17" or 19" LCD, prefferable HD ready. If it had Freeview built in, that'd be super.

      4) Camcorder. I know this one's a low priority, but I would like one of these for attending Cons and MCM expo and stuff. It's be nicer than having still images, although I'd still take photos too.

      5) PS3. Yeah, only joking. I don't have eight million pounds to spend on other stuff to make it worth while...Give ti a couple of years, maybe, when a decent TV is about £100, and the console about £200. THEN I'll probably get one.

      Lastly, progress on Mia is going greatly and terribly all at once. I've got 5 chapters done, nearly 40000 words, by my reconning, which is only 10000 shy of novel length. HOWEVER, that is all uneddited, and all on paper. Which means I still need to Transcript it all into one of my PCs, and edit it, which is gonna take for EVER. *hates Transcripting like a bitch*

      On a lighter note (my god, I sound like a news anchor now...) I've decided to join a religion. my immortal soul needs looking after, not like my feeble and mortal body. So, from now on, I'm a Norse. When I die, as long as I've fought all my battle with honour, I go to Valhalla, where there is Mead and Meat and Fightings for ever! We even get Valkyries!

    • Joy

      11 years ago

      TPR

      Many people have different theories as to what pure Joy is. For some, it's the high point of procreative exstacy. For others, it's a physical or mental achievement that outshines All before them and all since.

      I found my true Joy. It's on Youtube.

    • A lack of update because...

      12 years ago

      TPR

      *drumroll*

      I've had nothing to update on. Even had a Manga Night yesterday, but nothing came of it...Apart from clarifying that I am the most obsessed Negima fan in the world, and I am the most stubbrn person in Crawley (I had a clapping contest(don't ask), and clapped solid for nearly an hour)

      Besides that, Work is pissing me the hell off. Apparently I have a Body Odor problem, which no-one else on earth besides this one person at work can smell, and I've been forced to take medical attention to it, because I already wear deodorant and wash everyday. Fucking cowardly cunts, the lot of them.

      Besides that, I have finally bought myself a Dreamcast. Yes, I know, it went obsolete, like, a decade ago, but I finally finished my Hunt. I found Power stone and Power Stone 2 together, right next to each other, in the same store. SO I bought them, and the console to go with them. But I have now found out that the DC had naff all games that are playable now. I think only Shenmue and Shenmue 2 are the only original ones left on it, everything else got released on other consoles, or is a wrestling game (how many different types of that fake sport can there be!?)

      I also have a new PC. Her name is Yue-chan, and she's what I'm using right now. Haruka is still ok, but I'm not using her as much, because I'm rushed off my feet. Trying to find myself a new job, but I've got it on very good channels that the town is going to have a completely new Library son enough, so I'm gonna go work there. May mean a pay cut, but means no Gatwick Airport with it's shitty security rules, shitty security teams, shitty everything else. Even the good bits are shitty.

      I do also want to explain to those who are going to read this (probably no-one, but Meh) the 'HMV Anime Pricing method'. Basically, you get a load of Anime DVDs, a load of price stickers ranging from £12 to £25, and you put them on the DVDs randomly. Seriosly, in one store I saw Naruto volume 2:1 priced at £19, £22 and £25. I'm fed up with buying anime and manga from the high street. It's conventions and Daves Comics for me from now on.

      Still no Girlfriend. I'm open to offers, Ladies. Hell, I'm open to offers, gents.

      Its my Birthday tomorrow. And I have to get up at 4am, do 9 hours of work, and not drink in the evening because I have to get up the day after to go to work as well. Fucking hate my job...

      My Writing has come on leaps and bounds since last writing update. I have 3 complete chapters of Mia, my novel, done, and I'm working on the fourth. I've also entered a short story for Amecons writing contest, and if it's successful, I might try to publish it, or even find an artist to make it into a manga.

      That's about all I can think about to say right now.

    • FINALLY!

      12 years ago

      TPR

      I have succeeded in finally fishing out my MCM pictures from my Camera. I'm working on getting them uploaded to some sort of Image hoster, but I can't be doing with Photobcuket and whatever, so you may have to deal with individual hosted pics...

      On second thought, I can't be arsed to host them, so I'll describe them, and people can ask to see them.

      1. My Friend Dystant
      2. A somewhat Blurry SOS-DAN
      3. Master Chief
      4. Negi Springfield
      5. Some random Naruto enemies, I think
      6. Tsubasa Chronicle group
      7. Link
      8. Storm Troopers
      9. Kairi
      10. Zelda
      11. Alucard
      12. Death Note Group
      13. Night Elf (WoW)
      14. Shinku
      15. Wolfwood
      16. Elite Beat Agents
      17. Link Vs Cloud...FIGHT!
      18. Spongebob....

      Errrr.....

      DAmnit, I should've loaded my MCM pictures up...Those will come soon, hopefully. In the mean time...I need something exciting to happen to me, MCM was kinda boring this time around.

      OH! I judged at the UK Pokemon TCG National Championship this year. That was a load of fun, my mate came in second. A few other mates did middle road. All in all, it was a class day. Held up at Woburn Safari park, I got to see a Sealion, and I got to show lotsa peoples my Pokemans. And I haerd this guy Lieked Mudkipz, so I got him one.

      Sorry for the 4chan quotes. When it comes to pokemon, they are nescessary. it's be like someone air guitaring without going Wryyyyyyyyy. Breaking the internet laws. Well, internet unwritten codes. Internet guidelines. Internet 'follow if you feel like's

      I've also managed to complete my Fanfic entry for Amecon, sorta...It's currently nearly two and a half thousand words over the limit, but I've been cutting back, and need to re-type it. I've also almost finished my Original entry, so watch this space. Come August, yours truely could have a book published, you never know.

      Dude, the entire american anime industry is becoming stale. Everything from their lack of extras and reasons to buy the DVD besides just owning a carbon copy of it to the poorly adapted voices, it's really failing over here.

      It's because piracy of anime is still consistently rising and these companies just keep half assing it. The only anime that I've enjoyed lately is the stuff from Viz (Death Note's got a pretty suiting dub IMHO) and a few funimation dubs here and there.

      But as you known, Geneon went under here as far as we know meaning no more higurashi and ADV just keeps getting their hands on the Key works that I'm afraid they'll have Clannad by the end of 08.

      It's a long story I'd prefer not to delve into but suffice to say, the american anime industry could very well be on the verge of doom in the next 2-3 years if they don't get their shit together. As soon as japan steps in and takes control, I can bet that some, if not all localization groups will be dissolved and all that will be left is a center for merely making at least the packaging in english. Beyond that, I doubt there will be much more done.

      And if people had ANY idea of Akamatsu's previous work with doujinshi for Card Captor Sakura, you can bet your life they would ban every other single book released by him.

      On the topic of Hot Fuzz, it comes out this weekend... But I don't have the cash to go see it. I just spent 300 at Tekkoshocon man, which ended up SUCKING cause of my asshole friend who has the persona of a wet dishcloth.

      I'm going to see it... But it'll probably have to wait a while, much like how I have to wait to see Disturbia, Reno 911!: Miami, Vacancy, this and the Invisible. Really, 8-10 dollars these days from my point of view is too much for a movie... But I am going to see it, that is for sure. When however is a whole nother story...
