Does anyone know what happened to [livejournal.com profile] rivier? Was it something to do with PDFWank? Because lord knows it's made me want to delete myself out of existence to be associated with such an ill-conceived and poorly executed file of fangirly butthurt.

Maybe the whole thing was some sort of masterplan thought up by the whovian fannish elite to weed out those they perceive to be Torchwankers by heaping so much embarrassment squick upon them that they leave fandom forever rather than be tarnished with it? Maybe that was it?

I think it's worked. I was just about to post a load of shizzle about Torchwood, too, but I just can't be fucked anymore. Here, have Sue Sylvester.

Big Bang Theory's on tonight. Nothing can possibly go wrong.

Huh.

I went to post a comment somewhere and found I'd been banned from someone's journal. I've never been banned from anyone's journal before, and I quite like the person in question and don't recall ever having had a disagreement with them of any kind. Random defriendings by people who I thought were my actual friends I can deal with, but banning? Wow. Ouch.

Speaking of which, this is kind of where I am at the moment:
  • There's not a lot of joy for me left in Whovian fandom. I'll probably post something later about how much I hated Waters of Mars. I have no desire to watch anything RTD has produced or DT stars in, and I am only just managing to hold on to a scrap of enthusiasm for when Moffat and Smith come in. I hate Russell, I hate everything he's ever written, I think he's awful. His insistence on bringing all this emotional manpain and trauma into these shows that used to just be a joyful experience for me and, in the case of Who, for my kids, has ruined my fannish experience. I want the last three years of my life back, I wish I'd never started watching Torchwood, I wish I'd stopped watching Who. I don't need television that pisses me off and makes me sad, that's not what I watch television for. Fuck you Russell, I hope LA chews you up and spits you out and fucks you in the ass with a pointy stick.

  • Ianto did make me happy for quite a few years, which is why I'm working on a last epic picspam of my favourite teaboy doing shit. I hope to have it done in a week or two.

  • I'm also working on something of a personal project celebrating Torchwood Series One and Two, which I hope to tell you more about in the coming weeks. Or maybe I'll just abandon it.

  • I was hoping to do a Christmas push on the Ianto Jones Wants a Pony campaign, but the Lluest Horse and Pony Trust's continued inability to update me is starting to annoy me a bit, so maybe I'll leave it. After Christmas, I'm done promoting it because I think I've done enough. I'll leave it up, of course.

  • Any takers for [livejournal.com profile] ninja_teaboy may give me shout here or in PM. I'm putting it up for adoption per January 1st. If there's no-one interested, I'll close it down.

  • Oh, in case you were wondering, no. If there is a new series of Torchwood, I won't be watching it, as I don't really like Gwen, or Jack. I liked Tosh and Ianto and I quite enjoyed disliking Owen. I liked Ianto, I liked Tosh, I liked the Hub, the embossed SUV, the pteranodon, the old ladies, the poodles, the victorian lesbianism, the cyberbikinis and that stupid fucking invisible lift. In fact, I loved all those things. Apparently I loved those things far too much. Those things are all gone, so there's nothing for me to come back to. Not that there will be a new series.

  • It's been really fun, people, but if you've friended me for Torchwood content, please, feel free to defriend me in the coming weeks, I won't be offended. I am completely spent. Done. Thanks, Rusty.

  • I turned anonymous commenting back on on this journal. I don't actually recall doing that, but I did go and change my settings a few months back because I realised I had been logging IP's from logged in users and I thought that was a bit weird and intrusive, so I guess I did it then. I'm not going to change it back now, so I suppose anonymous commenting is back on.

  • I turned anonymous commenting off way back when because of an anonymous comment I once got, which happened around the time I felt kind of persecuted by the anonmeme. I've since got over that whole feeling-persecuted-by-the-meme thing because, you know, lol. It's the fucking meme, who gives a shit. Though, reading through the meme every now and again, I notice that thing about constantly linking to my LJ without a word of explanation as to why is still sporadically going on. That wordless linking was the thing that kind of creeped me out in the first place in a stalkery-type way. But now I figure, you know, if someone cares enough to do that sort of thing, they're welcome to.

  • The internet can be a very mean place. I'm not a Cult of Nice type person, I'm very frequently mean or bitchy about stuff and I understand fully that people feel the need to be mean or bitchy about me. I don't particularly care either way, because I am, usually, reasonably thick-skinned. People who come to this journal and engage me in debate are always welcome, because I like debating with people, it's fun. I may not always agree with you, but I always try to have a fair and reasonable conversation and not get personal or nasty. I don't hate anyone, I may hate your fic or your photoshoppery or your fannish opinion, but I have nothing against anyone personally, and I always just assume that everyone I talk to understands that and feels the same way.

  • A few things have happened (not to me, just stuff that I've witnessed happening around and about) in the past few days that have made me doubt the above assumption, which is why I'm stating it, just for the record. People on the internet get hurt and it's not very nice, and I don't wish to be part of it, as bitchy as I might sometimes be.

  • And for that reason I'd like to say, first of all, my dear LJ flist: I fail at logging in and I am crap at commenting. More often than not, I'm not logged in when I read my friendslist. I often miss the friendslocked posts of my friends and even when I do read them, I mean to reply and then my daughter does a poo on the floor and I end up shampooing the carpet or something, or I quite simply forget. I'm incredibly tired pretty much all of the time and I'm frighteningly forgetful. I feel bad about the fact that I hardly ever comment on anyone's journal, and I'd just like to say to anyone who's had a baby, a birthday, a wedding, a new house, a driver's licence or a successful exam or show, anyone who's ever had a hard time or felt bad or asked for hugs or support or good luck wishes ar anything that I haven't supplied: I'm terribly sorry, I'm really shit at that sort of thing, I'm not being deliberately aloof or ignoring you, I'm just kind of crap.

  • On that note: [livejournal.com profile] bandgeek01, in answer to your question, yes, I removed you from my friendslist because you post tweets to your LJ and I've said many a time that I bloody hate tweets. I was in a bad mood that day and I just defriended you because they annoy me. In fact, I was in such a bad mood that I shunned the internet for a few weeks afterwards and subsequently missed your comment about why I had removed you from my friendslist, and by the time I read it, I thought it was a bit late to reply so I didn't. I should have sent you a message in the first place, it was rude of me and I hope it didn't hurt your feelings, I certainly didn't mean to. You're one of the nicest and friendliest people I've met on the internet in a long time, hell, you even comment on my dull domestic ramblings at Whyawhelk, which is really sweet. I have nothing against you personally, I really like you, I just really don't want to read tweets on my friendslist, that's all. So anyway, if you read this, I'm sorry, I was a twat.


I know none of the above will interest anyone in any way, but I'm posting it anyway because this is my journal and I can do whatever the hell I want. And I mean that in the nicest possible way, of course.

As someone pointed out to me, Google cache is your friend.

This is ALLEGEDLY Scott Gill in his speedos. (I have no way of confirming this, as it's a photo I stole from google's cache of an unnamed fan's Livejournal. It could be John Barrowman and a completely different man in speedos. It could be NOT John Barrowman and a completely different man in speedos. Hell, maybe they're not even speedos. I didn't take the picture, I have no way of knowing.)

I guess, you know, if you like that sort of thing... I'm not really a speedo gal myself. This, allegedly, is the photo John Barrowman didn't want posted to the internet because OMG PANTS! I put it to John Barrowman that if you, or your partner, don't want photos of yourselves in your pants posted on the internet, it would probably be wise to not show yourself in your pants to a group of paying and photographing punters. You're both grown men, so fucking act like grown men already. The original poster of this picture took down the picture at John's request, so good for her, she is blameless in all of this. I, on the other hand, don't give a flying fuck what John Barrowman requests of anyone, as he is not, in any way shape or form, "my liege." So there you go. I'm posting this picture of these two men who may or may not be John Barrowman and Scott Gill. In what may or may not be speedos.

For the record, hearsay would have it that the big super special secrets John allegedly didn't want anyone to know about are that he was allegedly involved in a car accident at the weekend. Why on earth he was allegedly driving a car with torn ligaments and allegedly high on pain medication is anyone's guess, and perhaps this is why he allegedly didn't want people to know about it. Again, if you don't want people to know about it, I'd suggest NOT TELLING A GREAT BIG BUNCH OF PAYING PUNTERS. Allegedly. The other secret is that he's allegedly trying to flog one of his allegedly godawful entertainment/variety shows to a US network, so good luck with that, dude.

THAT'S IT. THERE ARE NO OTHER SUPER SPECIAL SEKRITS FROM TORCHSONG, no matter what any of John's super special sekrit friends may be hinting at. Fascinating, weren't they? Allegedly.

EDITED TO ADD THE WORD ALLEGEDLY A LOT. And some wordy disclaimers.

EDITED AGAIN TO ADD: YAY!
"SEE TENCRUSH ACT LIKE SHE DIDN'T SWIPE THE INFO FROM FANDOMWANK AND WHO_ANON, BECAUSE SHE IS SPESHUL SNOWFLAKES." Well, actually, all of this came from fandom_wank, as I said in my first post about the Torchsong fail, that's how I ended up at the meme in the first place. And yes, the hearsay super special sekrit information was copied from the meme. I'm not pretending it wasn't, I just didn't mention it. If it had been posted by a logged in LJ-er, I'd have credited and linked, but it wasn't, so I didn't. That's what happens when you post anon.

LAST WORD

Have wanked on about Torchsong enough now, but shall leave this quote here for posterity:

"They had better fucking guard my oil painting of John with thier lives... I sent it to get signed by John...or I will sue their asses off. (actually I am thinking I'll ask for it back, I dont trust them at all)" - [livejournal.com profile] euphrosyne2u

For some reason, the above makes me laugh OUT LOUD every time I read it. Come on, it's fucking funny.

tencrush: (Default)
Yeah, so I dip my toes back into fandom and find this whole Torchsong hilarity on Fandom Wank. There are things I could say about this particular wank but sisterelwood has already been succinct enough to sum up my thoughts in the comments:

If you don't want something talked about then don't fucking tell a convention full of strangers. It doesn't take a genius to figure that one out. Additionally, anyone who dropped that much money on an event and didn't bother to understand the refund policy or make sure they were handing over money to a reputable group deserves to have their money stolen.

This whole thing isn't so much funny as a case study in fucking stupidity.


LOL. Comment of truth FTW!

Okay, actually I do have one or two things to say on the subject of Torchsong and -WAHEY!- John Barrowman. When do I ever not?

  • There's a few comments at the anonmeme about John's behaviour, but I try not to read the anonmeme too much, if indeed at all, so I only skimmed over them. There was, however, a nice comparison somewhere between John Barrowman and a pedophile. Which was loltastic and very much to the point, the point being that this attitude of JB's of "I do special personal stuff for you convention guys! Stuff I don't do for ANYONE ELSE! Please keep it to yourself or they'll make me not do that special stuff anymore, so if you love me and want to be my special friend, you won't tell anyone about the special stuff we do together!" IS FUCKING CREEPY AND MANIPULATIVE AS FUCK. Seriously. CREEPY. In fact, I'm starting to think JB has some sort of narcissistic or histrionic personality disorder. I hope I didn't type that out loud just then.

    Really, though. Creepy. Creepy and weird, but mostly creepy.

  • If John really wants to drag his non-celebrity other half and said other half's arse into the public eye, why doesn't he just do something REALLY tasteful like Celebrity Wife Swap or All Star Mr. and Mrs. or something like that? Maybe, now that the AndrĂ©'s are splitting up, they could do a reality thing to replace Jordan and Peter Stateside on ITV 2. Or is it 3? (I mean, it's not like there's a Torchwood Season 4. We all know this.) It's obviously the sort of thing he's aiming for. TACKY!

  • GDL uses Viagra? What drug habit is he compensating for, dudes? Answers on a postcard. (I'm guessing speed? Maybe coke?)


Crazy times, people. Crazy times.

tencrush: (jackanto subtext)
I'm not going to flock my fannish posts. I write fannish stuff in this journal because I like debating and discussing things and if I put those things behind a friendslock that pretty much defeats that object. So fuck it, I'm not going to flock it. Nobody is forcing anybody to read this journal, I hardly ever crosspost anything anywhere unless I genuinely want input and debate, so if you don't like it, just read something else.

Having said that, I am going to friendslock everything else and I have culled my friendslist and cut off people I didn't know who have never introduced themselves because I'd like to know who's who. All of those people are more than welcome here, as long as they take the time to say hi to me somewhere.

So that's it, I am now returning you to your regularly scheduled programming, which would be me bitching about Barrowman for a bit. Stay tuned!
tencrush: (ianto pie)
Yeah, so apparently someone was bugged enough by me to call me the Biggest Attention Whore in TW Fandom on the anonymeme. And I never even READ the anonymeme, I only went there because of the Tennant news and the fact that everything else was down due to fandom implosion. I'm quite honoured, not for the Attention Whore thing (which I find odd, I don't post to comms and I hardly ever comment anywhere, so if I'm whoring for your attention, you must be reading my LJ on your flist, so defriend me already), but I am quite honoured to be called SHOCKING AND CONTROVERSIAL AND CLEVER. Clever, especially.

Most of what I read on LJ when it comes to Torchwood is meta rambling, and there are a lot of people out there who are a lot more clever than I am on that front. Most of what I write on LJ about Torchwood is meta rambling, mostly concerning Jack/Ianto, a relationship I don't ship, but love to scrutinise because IT'S THERE and it's so fucking ambiguous and I love ambiguous. Most of what I've been doing lately is reposting pictures for my flist who don't do DWF for whatever reason, because I like sharing the pretty. On that note, yeah, I think GDL is pretty. I had a discussion in one of my posts that I ended up deleting because the original poster deleted their comments, but the gist was that I don't worship the guy. (I worship Ianto, don't get me wrong, I have more love for Ianto that I have ever had for a fictional character, ever.) I think he's a good little actor and he's pretty, but I reckon he's probably a bit of a dick IRL, the reason I don't really mention that a lot, is that, apart from my outburst about Barrowman last week, I don't particularly like discussing the personalities of actual people in my LJ, those of you who read regularly will know I'm not interested in people's private lives and relationships, I don't like RPF and I'm not really into RL gossip and such. I'll talk about his cock and pies until the cows come home because it's a superficial hypocritical thing I like to do and it keeps me amused, and everyone who knows me and shares my sense of humour knows that both of those things only serve as an excuse for me to post gratuitous pictures of him on a daily basis, because, like I said if you read back, I think he's pretty. I had an outburst about JB and GDL's behaviour at The Hub, not because of what they did, because I don't particularly give a flying fuck WHAT they do, but because the repercussions of what they did seemed to be focussing on the fans, and fannish responsibility to keep these things to yourself and I think that's a ridiculous approach to take because it causes wank. And much like some of the posters on the anonymeme, all those icons of JB and GDL snogging make me feel a bit weird. But that's just me.

So, yeah, whatever, I stand by what I said ages ago, I think TW fandom's a lovely place to be and the people in it are warm and fuzzy and cool and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else, so, you know, go fuck yourself.

I put that last line in to be shocking and controversial.

ETA: The reason I'm bringing this up is a) to be an attention whore, obviously, but mostly b) because I started that wankish post about Barrowman last week because I was in a really bitchy mood and looking for a fight, a state that I'm not actually in that often (at home, yes, online, not so much) but that thread backfired because I ended up with 90-odd comments which consisted of people being really quite nice to me and freaking me the fuck out. If I'd known what was going on in the anonymeme at that point in time, I'd have felt much, much better. The fucking irony.

tencrush: (crap)
Yes, I've been back to the OG after a well deserved two week break, and man, that place weirds me out.
All I've been reading about there lately is The Girl in the Fireplace, and how it doesn't fit in with S2's "arc", and how crap it is and OOC and weird and downright bad an all that sort of stuff. I'm all tiredz now.

People are still wanking on about that episode, and how the Doctor abandoned Rose for some French skirt and how evol that was and Christ knows what. I'd really like them to shut up some time soon. Primarily because it seems to be about 10 people whining on, when in reality the OG consensus of opinion seems to be:

OG )

So, you know, what the fuck? Will they ever be quiet? Like I've said before, some people seem to have really taken it quite badly that the Doctor and Rose never got their tonguey kiss in Doomsday. (A fact for which I thank the Baby Jeebus on a daily basis still) And they're JUST NOT GONNA LET IT LIE GODDAMMIT.

I find it funny how these two episodes seem to mirror each other in terms of wank, and I am especially loving a fandom which includes people who think that the "dancing" line in tGitF referred to literal dancing, and certainly not sex no way, while at the same time jumping headfirst into the wild and crazy world of "Ten and Rose and Their Babies!!!" from a single "You're not..." in Doomsday. I love those sorts of people.

I may have to leave teh OG alone for a bit, as I have gone all weird again.
I claimed the Doctor's real name was Dave, Dave T. Doctor Beakymickandtich. Now that's just wrong.
