From [livejournal.com profile] fandomsecrets:

BIG PICSHUR with lolediting )

OVER 400? Really? Is that what that says? I find that hard to believe, secretmaker. I have no way of checking, but that sounds... excessive, even for the grudgewankers at [livejournal.com profile] who_anon. I don't post that much about me, and I find myself reasonably fascinating. So, yeah... if that's true, then, whoa. Weirdness. (Admission: I'm kind of obsessively trying to do the maths on this one, because I've tracked things in my inbox before, and I know that the email format mentions the previous comment in any comment reply, so if I were mentioned in one comment, any comment replying to that comment would have the original comment quoted in it, so the first reply, and second mention of my name, would bring the count to three, etc etc. Even so, I still think 400 is a lot. I should stop thinking about this, probably. BAWWWW MOAR, TENCRUSH! etc.)

Speaking of internet haters who should be doing better things with their time, i.e. me, a personal note to the person who made this:

(The one that says ILU) This picture inspired me to use an openface Cooper style font in my header image, because it reminded me how fond I actually am of that font, especially the openface variety. (Mine is Alfredo, but this is beside the point.) Of all the images and messages on the Ianto shrine, I actually quite like this one, because it's sweet, as, to be fair, are most of the others. That's why I mentioned it, albeit sarcastically. That's just an aside, oh maker-of-the-ILU-picture, I am sure your heart and your sentiments are in the right place, as is the heart of everyone else who put something up on that shrine in Cardiff Bay. I have nothing personal against anyone who has done so, I, myself would have LOVED to have put something up on that shrine to Ianto because I miss him LIKE BURNING, I am still angry, I am still sad, I am still frustrated. My problem with the shrine is the same problem I have with the SaveIanto pdf, and the Save Ianto campaign in general, and it's that you, people of the Save Ianto campaign, have hijacked my grief and my anger and my frustration and used it to support your Annie Wilkes-style campaign to pester and bully and spam the BBC and anyone else you can think of with the message that IANTO JONES MUST BE RETURNED TO TORCHWOOD OR ELSE. Just like all the quotes you ganked for your document, just like all the charitable donations made to Children in Need, again with the way you've claimed this shrine as your own you're twisting people's genuine, heartfelt expressions and using them to claim support for your cause. And still, I can see from my inbox, you genuinely don't understand why this upsets and angers people. (People like me, but not just me, I just happen to talk about it sometimes.) Duh, dudes. Double duh.

Speaking of moving on and getting over it, though, Lessons in Torchwood Irony, part one: [livejournal.com profile] letiantorest. Hur, hur. I know, let's Let Ianto Rest by starting a community about Letting Ianto Rest called [livejournal.com profile] letiantorest. Guys, protip: Letting Ianto Rest: UR DOIN IT WRONG. There is not a smidgeon of irony to be found in the posts and comments, which is funny enough, but the fact that it seems to centre around self-importantly declaring it a space where fans can be Better Than Other Fans, while at the same time expressing a wish to Bring The Fandom Back Together is just... oh, fuck, it's delicious. You never fail to bring the luls, TW fans. Don't ever change.

I am rewatching TW S2 for Ianto and his phone. He is not on the phone enough in S2, I'm five episodes in and already grasping at straws. I may well have to lump it in with CoE, which is full of phoney Iantoey goodness, apart from the part in which he becomes dead. But I don't have to watch that part, because I'm pretty certain he's not on the phone after that happens.

Yeah, that's it, I'm outta here.

The meme has a troll! Yay troll! I'd say trolling is bad but in this case I'm willing to make an exception. I still wish they would permanently turn IP logging on, A) so I can prove it's not me and B) because that would make anon wankers possibly stop being such fucking cunts to people. Not that it would, but still.

This week in memery... FAMILIAR NAKED MEN )

*waves at meme*
I never said anything about sunbeams, tossbag. As long as random anon wankers keep trawling my journal (and again, guys, what, like 10 minutes for the linkback? Pretty good going!) for no reason, I'm going to keep reading yours. It's fucking hilarious.

tencrush: (glee sue resentment)
Me and who_anon. Way too long to read, but it's my once-every-so-many-months rant, so deal, dudes. )

And no, obviously, this isn't friendslocked, like I said, I'd like to contribute in some small way to the place dying. Of course I read it, I claimed once (maybe twice? okay maybe three times) that I was going to stop reading it, and I did, for a time, but then gossip happens and I go right back. I'd love for there to be a pure whovian gossip comm. And by that I mean I wish [livejournal.com profile] ohnowhodidnt had actual gossip. Why can't we do that, people? We should get on that. Not me, though. Somebody else.

For any of you wanting to properly participate over at [livejournal.com profile] who_anon.

  • Read something on the journal of an acceptable meme target. I'm always good for a laugh, as is [livejournal.com profile] karaokegal, lately [livejournal.com profile] rivier is good too, anyone into Torchwood is always a good choice, because liking Torchwood is an inherently mockworthy thing on the meme anyway, so you're guaranteed a bunch of people jumping in and making you feel good about yourself by agreeing with you on how much of a twat said target is.
  • Fail to read the actual post, sum it up correctly, or understand what it's about and just post a link with as little explanation as possible. Maybe a "lol" or something.
  • Wait for everyone to pile in and join you in failing to read the post in question, misquoting parts of it, assigning meanings to things that aren't implied in the text and being generally amusing about how much of a twat the poster is for posting words on their personal journal.
  • Sit back, safe in the knowledge that the mocked poster will not jump in to defend themselves on the meme or elsewhere, for fear of causing an infinite loop of ever more hateful and personal wank, so you can just comment on, say, their parenting skills as much as you like, nobody really cares, do they?

  • Wait for someone to step up and smack you down for posting the original link because surely people can post what they want in their journals and it's not particularly mockworthy and can't we all just get along?
  • Jump on that person and call them "meme nanny" or "troll" or both if the mood takes you.
  • Fight amongst yourselves, take it to the mod post and generally act like a bunch of childish cunts.
  • Be righteously indignant when anyone points out that you are, in fact, all a bunch of childish, pathetic cunts.
  • Call that person a troll.
  • Start over.

Good Lord, it must be so tedious participating over there. But if you feel the need, that's all you need to know.

You're welcome, dudes. As you were.

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.

Sorry I was cryptically chirpy last night. I received a few nice messages in my LJ inbox after I posted something at who_anon, from completely random people not even on my friendslist. Umm, so yeah, that was a really pleasant surprise and did, in fact, restore my faith in the fact that most people out there are decent and nice. Yay for people! Oh, sure, there's at least one person on the meme who likes to shout at me and tell me I'm a bad mother because I pointed and laughed at some shit photoshoppery a few times like a year ago, but that person can go fuck themselves with a pointy stick. We all have our own beds to make and lie in and I'm happy and comfy in mine.

Yes, yes, yes, I'll do a picspam, I promise. Life has been getting in the way.

ETA: Oh, yes, AND, AND, AND!! The other reason I was so happy was that my email account doesn't actually get all the notifications about Ianto's Pony donations (I have no idea why, I get them randomly, some donations I get an email and some I don't), but it passed the GBP 1900 mark yesterday. I wanted to get 2000 by Christmas and then let it lie, and that actually seems to be an achievable goal now. YAY PEOPLE!! I am coming to snog all of you. With tongues.

My meme stalker has taken to posting ENTIRE POSTS, IN THEIR ENTIRETY on the meme. It makes a change from the commentless links, I suppose. In this case, I think the idea was to have everyone pile in and say how wrong I am to say that people having casual sex is just that, people having casual sex. Which happens, A LOT, so take your moral superiority and shove it up your arse, because some people actually enjoy having safe and consensual sex, dudes. Really! It didn't really work in this case, because most people seem to agree with me, apart from those who enjoy calling other people skanks for what those other people do with their pussies which is none of their fucking business. Yo, meme, your prudish Yank is showing. Put it away, already.

For the record: I don't think the meme is beneath me. I'm just not terribly interested in posting there. I fully support anyone who likes the anonymity of the meme, and I can totally understand why people like that aspect of it, I'm sure it's very liberating. I just have a terrible time talking to people I can't identify and who can't identify me, I need some sort of context. It makes me really uncomfortable for some reason, probably for the same reasons that other people find it comforting. Sure I read it, I've more or less always read it, how would I find out about sinkwank otherwise? You gotta go somewhere, and truth be told, on a fannish level, I hardly venture off LiveJournal nowadays, there's not much else to my fannish world, I've never read TWOP and only rarely read Digital Spy, I didn't like the old OG much and I haven't even signed up for the new one, all I ever did there was argue with old men anyway. I still get pissed that I get linked to so often on the meme, simply because I don't really think I have that fascinating or controversial an opinion on anything, so I fail to see the point. But just like sink sex, whatever floats your boat is fine with me, link away, take the piss, do whatever makes you happy. In your pants.

Yeah, I know, I said I'd do a picspam. But first I'll do a post about love. All this will happen after I've cleaned the carpet, today's the last day of warmness when it might actually dry and it needs attention after the kiddie party. There was spillage. lots of it.

I use my Sheldon icon because dudes, Big Bang's nearly on again.

ETA: Also, I HAVE FISH. Dudes, if you think having fish means buying an aquarium, filling it with water and bunging some fish in, you'd be SORELY MISTAKEN. I think we've spent well over 50 euros on additives and testing kits alone. Fuck me, they're more work that a dog.

I'VE BEEN READING THE MEME! Well, how could I not, given the gossip. Stuff I have seen:

  • I've seen a lot of people questioning the validity of the sink rumours. Maybe I've just seen a few too many skanky backstage parties, but I've got no problems believing any of this shizzle. It's not like it's actually earth-shattering or anything, Jesus. Nobody shat on a glass coffee table. Some people had sex. Big whoop.

  • LOL, calling [NAME WITHHELD] a SLUT! I love it when that happens. See, from where I'm standing, the chick ALLEGEDLY had consensual sex with an adult guy she found attractive. It's not her JOB to know that he's engaged, nor is it her job to protect the reputation of whichever celebrity she fancies fucking. It's HER VAGINA, she can do whatever the fuck she wants with it. Is her behaviour a bit skeevy? Yeah, probably, it's not the sort of thing I'd do (Fifteen years ago, dudes? Yeah... perhaps. I'm not proud. But not ashamed either, MY business, nobody else's), but seriously, calling someone a slut for HAVING SEX, it's just not fucking on.

  • Having said that, the righteous moral smackdown people are laying on GDL? Not cool. You don't know the status of his relationship with his fiancee. She might be fine with confucking. They might have an open relationship. Hell, she might have broken off their engagement two weeks ago because she's seeing someone else who has a more buttony nose. YOU DON'T FUCKING KNOW! It's not GDL's job to keep the fan community abreast of the ins and outs of his relationship, again, that's nobody's business but his. So, to a certain extent, STFU as well. If he is still engaged to the girl and she doesn't approve of that sort of thing (and yes, those things are LIKELY, but not FACT), then yes, it's skanky of him. But you don't know the guy nor do you know any of those things, so whatever dudes.

  • LOL, there are people questioning the logistics of sink sex? Come on, guys. I've done a bit of research and apparently nowadays, the preferred height of a sink is around 33 to 34 inches. Given the fact that GDL is, what, 6'1", it would be safe to assume that his inside leg measurement would be around 33 inches, which would more or less correspond with the distance from the ground to the bottom of the base of his erect cock. So what's wrong with the logistics there? I mean, if you, the lady, scoot your arse forward a bit (and you'd have to, or you'd be IN the sink), you'd get a good inch of maneuverability either up or downwards just by tilting your hips, and then you can go with that old chestnut of wrapping your legs around the guy's arse, lean back with your arms on either side of the sink for stability or wrap one of them around his neck, it's all good. I can't imagine there would be any sort of logistic problem. It's just like table or kitchen side sex, except possibly at a slightly more pleasurable height (kitchen units are usually a standard 36 inches, people, 36 inches! Are you listening, Hollywood? AWKWARDLY HIGH.) AND ANYWAY, apparently only kitchens have a sink. Bathrooms have a BASIN. Its called a basin. The internet is a terribly edumacational place.

  • GDL has a shirt that says "Don't ask me what it's like to kiss John Barrowman". This makes me LOL. It makes me LOL because when fangirls ask that question it makes me cringe because it's like they're saying "FEED MY FETISH, BITCH!", and when manly interviewers like Jay Leno ask that same question, there's always an undertone of "EEEW TELL US HOW GROSS IT IS TO KISS ANOTHER MAN!!" In fact, I have yet to hear that question asked in a manner that does not make me want to curl up and die. So good on you, GDL. It's a skeevy question. (The only other time people ask the "what's it like to kiss..." question, other than when talking about the ghey, is when the object of the question is someone that has been universally declared, by all of mankind, to be phenomenally, blindingly attractive. I don't know what this says about anything, it's just an observation.)

Yeah, I got nothing else to say. I'll do a picspam tomorrow. And a post about LOVE.

Spotted on who_anon in a conversation about John Barrowman being the exact opposite of the hot body, shame about the face stereotype:

ANONA: His face is fugly too. He's a buttereverything to me.
ANONB: No doubt you're the fairest of them all, anon.
ANONB: Lol. Shine on with your standards, you special snowflake you.

LOL. I've seen this argument SO OFTEN, particularly in Torchwood fandom, and it makes me laugh EVERY TIME. It's just... WUT??? Since when do you need to be attractive to be allowed to have an opinion on another person's attractiveness? I was, ON SO MANY OCCASIONS, told that I was NOT THIN ENOUGH to be allowed to say that I thought GDL was looking a bit porky. I often wonder precisely how much weight I'd need to lose in order to be allowed to make an observation on the weight of someone on my telly. In fact, I'm sorely tempted to lose two stone just so I can counter the argument with "Why yes, actually, I AM THIN, and therefore I MAY PASS JUDGEMENT ON HIS PORKINESS," and find out what THE NEXT STEP IN THE ARGUMENT is. I somehow doubt, you see, that the next step would be Oh, you're thin? Oh alright then, make all the pie jokes you like, carry on. Oh, you're beautiful? Really? Then you may say you find JB unattractive. Oh, you've made successful and critically acclaimed television shows? Ah, well then you may carry on critiquing Torchwood, go right ahead.

For the record, I think GDL's looking verra hawt this season. But if you don't agree with me, I'm hardly going to smack you down with an "OH LIKE YOU'RE SUCH A FUCKING OIL PAINTING, BITCH." The logic of that argument escapes me entirely.

(Sometimes it's like who_anon is an entirely irony-free zone. Like, you know, telling someone they're an unfit parent because they sometimes say mean things on the internet. Which is... like... a really mean thing to say... on the internet... ummm... where was I going with this? As offended as I am, that's actually funny on so many levels, I don't even know where to start.)

You must excuse me because I am now off to go make a dramatically satisfying 5-one-hour-parts-over-one-exciting-week miniseries in which none of the main characters die, just so I can, you know, complain later if need be. I may be some time.

Some things shouldn't really be dignified with an answer, but I've been a bit belligerent of late since the funtimes about me on the meme the other day, so I answered anyway. But then I deleted because of the dignifying things with an answer thing. Which is the plus side to posting unanon. I think calling me out as "the racist troll," whichever troll that might be today, is against the meme's rules, but I am not clear enough on the meme's rules to want to bring it to anyone's attention. It seems I've got a page to myself on that mod thread already anyway.
