So I just discovered that some silly video I made about 5 years ago for a fandom I thought was fairly dead has been making the rounds on tumblr... and accompanied by the usual cloud of fail.
(FYI the vid was this little bit I'd written down for one of the voice actors read for one of the comms here on livejournal for the show. I'll admit it was exactly the most well thought out script but I was trying to be funny and reference inside jokes from the comm.)
Now tumblr apparently has seen fit to lay hate all over the actor for this because of one slightly politically incorrect fat joke in the video. And yeah on one level I get it, there's a lot of messed up body image crap out there and a lot of women suffer from poor body image. As a not skinny person I'm VERY aware of this.
But I could really not give two fucks about all the people supposedly offended by this. I'm not going to apologize for it. I made it a long time ago as a joke (which it says so on the video that it was done for the lolz.) and I still think it's funny in the context of the show. Could I maybe have come up with something for him to say that was equally funny and didn't involve that particular joke? Probably. But it's over and done with and Im not going to be ashamed of a little political incorrectness in a world that is chock-a-box FULL of jokes MUCH worse than this (dead baby jokes for examples... which really shouldnt be funny but I can't help myself.) And frankly stupid fangirls should get off the actor's back because he was reading a script.
Furthermore if we eliminated all politically incorrect humor from the world... there would not be a lot of comedy left in it.
On the brightside it's nice to see that I could care less about the stupid things complete strangers said about me for "making the actor do that." At the time I made the vid I would have taken every asinine thing said way too much to heart and been upset about it for days. Now I'm just like: "Psh. Whatever. If this is how you spend your time you clearly have nothing better to do."
Anyways I just think it's ridiculous people did/are/will get riled up about this and if this offends them they should maybe avoid the internet period cause this is where ALL the inappropriate things live.
Hi internet. Been a bit busy of late. Trying to figure out how to manage my internet time with so many social media platforms and unfortunately LJ tends to get neglected simply because I haven't found a good Android app for it yet. Suggestions anyone?
Really I am. I've just been insanely busy... or at least it feels like I have been. Esp right now cause I got a role in a play and have been in rehearsals since the beginning of July and I was on vacation the first two weeks of June and I'm not really sure what happened between Christmas and June. Life? I dunno, I fail. Sorry. Commence the throwing of the vegetables.
I haven't meant to be a total spazz about LJ I'm just not impressed with any of the LJ apps I've found on Android and Twitter is so much easier to use. If you has the Twitter, message me for my handle! (I dont wanna put it up here in case the strange Russian spambots decide to use it.)
I can't promise I won't disappear again for several months, but I'll try harder this time. (That is assuming anybody actually still has me on thier LJ feed. I wont be offended if no one does.)
Yes I'm alive. I've just been cray cray busy with the holidays and then being broke as feck after the holidays and now I'm taking 2 classes at the Community College (after seven years of owning a guitar I'm FINALLY learning how to play it. Go me! And sewing. Because I need to get better.)
But I am still alive mein lieblings, never fear. I hang out on Twitter a fair amount now. Message me if you want my handle.

Because the problem with not having heath insurance is that when you think you might have to go see a doctor for something, you have no idea what to do!
I mean do you have to go to one those free clinics? Are they still going to charge you a ridiculous amount of money? I mean seriously, life was easier when you had insurance, you had a doctor and you knew where to go. Or at least in college where was the Student Health Services.
Because while I'm not sure there's an actual problem yet...I'm kinda freaking out over what I'm supposed to do when if there is one. So if anyone has any advice, please PLEASE give it.
