Okay, I know this is an old song and dance coming from me, but get ready to hear some singing and see some dancing anyway. And pretend to like it, lol.

As you likely know from my monster pride, I’m an American. I was born in this country and have spent most of my life here, on and off, and I don’t think anyone loves their country more than I – and yes, you’re welcome to pick that apart and bitch about my American arrogance in thinking I love my country more than you love yours, because that’s exactly what I said.

Anyway, the chase. With the upcoming U.S. Presidential Election, I’ve noticed that a lot of fun, happy haters have surfaced. As Hunter Thompson once said, the scum always rises when the water gets too hot. I’ve been making the rounds on a few of my favorite blogs now that I have a bit more time, I’ve even considered heading back to Snark. I’ve seen quite a few blog posts recently that have to do with the election, and the one thing that I’ve noticed more than anything is that everywhere the election is mentioned some asshole claims that everyone in America thinks the world revolves around them.

Now, honey, I don’t give two shits what you think. If you want to believe that everyone in America runs around with their brains and hearts full of girlish glee at the prospect that they may be richer, more free or better than you, then you just go ahead and think that – but please, tell me about it because I can’t get enough of your home grown hypocrisy.

See, for those of you who are out of the touch or out of your minds, you may not realize that when you say, “All Americans think they’re so much better than everyone else.”, or “All Britans look down on everyone else.”, you’re really saying, “I like stereotypes, and I can’t control myself.” – and while I’m all for you having the right to look stupid, it irks me that it’s directed at *everyone* in my country.

I know assholes in America – oh, boy howdy do I. A lot of mean, self righteous, ignorant bastages. But I also know a lot of snotty, up-their-own-ass, preachy, rude and deliberately snobby Canadians. Does that mean everyone from Canada is like that? Are you high?

I think people get it in their head that America’s fair game. We’re the big boys, like most of the rest of the U.N., and it’s easy to take a few shots at us, but that doesn’t make it piss me off less. I get the worst of the ‘innocent comments’ from my Canadian friends, and I keep thinking if they see everyone in America is stupid, lazy or falsely superior, why bother telling me about it or even hanging out with me for that matter? Rant over – for now.

I’ve decided I don’t like people who don’t like PayPerPost. No, wait, let me correct that – I hate people who are vocal enough in their hatred of PPP that they harass people who use it. I’ve noticed, since I’ve been active in the PPP community, that a fair amount of Posties get a fair bit of hate on a regular basis, and it makes me wonder if non Posties can really be so full of themselves, preachy, up their own asses AND have nothing to do all day all at the same time?

As some of you already know, I’m sure, I’ve decided to distance myself from the Web Haters in recent months. I think it’s ridiculous to scrutenize others for hours on end based solely on the stupid notion that, according to the rules you’ve set for yourself in your own mind, you’ve convinced yourself that you’re superior to them.

If someone’s coding isn’t 100% valid, they suck. If someone uses a more fan-ish style of design, rather than the more elitist approved ‘defaultism’ style that looks quite a bit like the default wordpress layout, they blow. If they don’t agree with you, they are not worthwhile. If they don’t spell perfectly, they should be dehumanized. They use PayPerPost? They should just kill themselves.

I’m all for everyone doing their own thing, and having their own opinions, but it’s a bit on the stupid side to become Peter, Paul and Mary whenever someone doesn’t agree with you to the point of mental slavery. It shows such a want of attention and validation that, were it not so hilarious, would actually be a bit painful to witness.

It actually amazes me that people are so narrow minded that they assume that if paid for your opinion you’d have no other choice than to blatantly lie. These people haven’t taken the time to check out PPP to see how it works, they seem to not realize that you don’t have to take any opportunities that you don’t want to take – you don’t have to take any at all, if you don’t want to. PPP has also been adamant to all Posties that they want blogs with good, real and original content and they don’t want any PPP sponsored posts to be in any way false advertising, in fact you can get benched or banned by an advertiser for that. But why check out the program and learn neat, shiny facts when you can slander it and terrorize it’s users?

I’ve heard all the arguments against blogging for profit, including one mention of it being whoring yourself out, and I haven’t heard one good reason to can it. Let me explain something. Everyone has to make money, and those of us using PPP are people who go to regular jobs, work long hours and still need help with the bills. Not everyone gets paid a decent hourly wage, and for people like me who have special circumstances PPP has become a way to afford small treasures like food and toilet paper, and hopefully a new garbage can with wheels and a lid. The fact that there are people out there who feel it their duty, not to mention a good chance to grab attention, to make those of us who do this work – and it is work, thanks, – regret the day we were born is so stupid and childish. Don’t you get enough attention in your everyday life? Is it really so important to be faux scandalized and ‘make a stand’ against shit that doesn’t concern you? Why don’t YOU go get a job? Or are you too busy being an arrogant, swaggering, common piece of trash all day? I can see how that would take up a lot of your time.

Notably, I don’t have any beef against those who just don’t want PPP on their own sites, because who gives a rats ass if you bitch on your own site? I don’t, I doubt anyone else does unless they’ve got a hard on for your precious approval. Everyone’s welcome to their opinion, it’s when your opinion crosses over into the comments and tag boards of other blogs that you and I have a situation. I’m in awe that it really doesn’t happen to me, lol.

I’m a bit annoyed ( see Why We Hate Fat People by Laota ). I’ve read on two different blogs, which shall not be named here, that fat people just don’t care about their health, that they’re fat because they’re lazy pigs who do nothing but eat fast food five times a day and should get up off their fat asses once in awhile. One blog even went so far as to blame the parents of fat people, saying that they don’t care about their children’s health and let them eat nothing but McDonalds and candy. What the hell? How do you get to be that ignorant?

First of all, it’s kind of weird to automatically blame parents for a kids weight, especially since some weight problems are genetic – there’s a little girl who lives a few blocks from me who weighs twice what she should, her family is big, too, and I used to babysit for her when she was 3 or 4 and she was heavy then, she’s 9 now and still heavy – they have veggies, fruit, health food, soy milk and nothing really fattening in their kitchen and they take family walks, bike ride, swim – but they’re still overweight and get treated like they’re lazy or slobs. More than once I’ve had to walk the little girl home from school past a particular block in my neighborhood because there are a few little girls in her class who terrorize her and try and beat her up, they call her names and she can’t handle it. For what? Because they have a stupid, ignorant but very popular, predjudice.

Personally, I grew up chubby and I never overate, in fact people made me feel so fat that I excercised all the time and, being a stupid kid, ate almost nothing – I did it for years, and I stayed at a heavier-than-my-friends weight. As soon as my leg got frelled up and I couldn’t walk for a few months ( which is what happens when you don’t have health insurance ) I ballooned up, and I wasn’t eating any more, less or differently than I usually did. I never eat fast food, since I don’t have the money to do so and the nearest fast food place is 30 miles away, nearly, and I don’t have a working car so McD’s wasn’t the culprit, I just couldn’t get up and excercize 2 hours every day anymore.

See, I’m one of those people who have to work twice as hard as my peers and eat half the calories they were eating just to stay at ‘chubby’, which I eventually accepted and now, though I’m heavier than I was then, I still work out every day but I have no desire to eat my old standby of almost nothing. I know I won’t ever be thin, I’m OK with it, but it pisses me off that nobody else seems to be.

Actually, I’ve got a better self image now than I ever have even though now I’m past chubby, I’m downright fat ( and you can deal with it or bite me ), and I look at older pictures of myself before my accident and wonder why I let people tell me I was fat, lazy and ugly. I wasn’t, but I believed everything they said. That screwed with my head, badly, and spent a great portion of my life unable to look myself in the mirror on the off moments when I wasn’t scrutinizing how many pounds I may have lost or gained, I lived on a scale and perminantly chained to nothing but salads, tuna, water and yogurt and counting every calorie as if it were double in hopes of losing that extra five or six pounds. I wish I had a time machine, I wish I could go back and explain to myself that being fat doesn’t have to be a bad thing and that if I let other people control how I see myself then I’m giving them power over me. I hate that. I have a giant, swinging castration complex that won’t let me do that now, lol.

A big problem is that people who consider themselves healthy, who are many times stick skinny and underweight, terrorize overweight people just because they can get away with it. And they justify it by saying that they’re just trying to ‘help’ the person. How, by getting in their business and making them feel worthless? By following a classmate to school, saying you’re going to beat her up? For what? Her size? I know there are a few of that type reading this right now, and let me assure you that you aren’t helping. If someone’s overweight, weither or not it’s their fault, you calling them names and bullying them far into adult life just makes it harder for them to live a happy life.

If someone’s going to make an effort to lose weight because someone ( or many people ) have been putting them down, chances are they’re going to go on crash diets and use pills and supplements because it’s not being healthy that they care about. In fact they probably don’t even care if it kills them, they don’t care if they’re healthy or not, they just want to be thin – they just want you to stop. How is that helpful? Are you high? Is your life not fullfilling enough without torturing someone who obviously has enough to worry about?

While I’m a big advocate of healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle, I think it’s stupid and downright schoolyard to make someone else’s life a living hell just because they don’t look exactly like you. I may never be thin, in fact I know I won’t, but I’d rather like myself and look in the mirror wondering about my stupid hair or trying out a new color of lip gloss than terrified that I may be one pound fatter. Lighten up, people, being skinny doesn’t make you better than anyone else and, let’s face it, there are plenty of skinny people who are just as unhealthy as overweight people so why not get off our tit already? We only get one life, and we all want to enjoy it. When you terrorize someone for any reason, you’re in effect stealing some of their life that they’ll never get back, and if you do this and you’re not ashamed of yourself then YOU are the one who’s worthless.

Well, my mom’s at it again. Her and her boss have had a huge blow out fight over something too personal to be work related. This is so stupid. After my stepdad passed away, I thought she’d be ‘free’, so to speak, and that she wouldn’t have someone telling her what she could and couldn’t do, who she could and couldn’t talk to and where she could and couldn’t go but she’s given her boss that power over her – she’s replaced her husband with him.

She can say all she likes that she hasn’t, but she has, he comes into her house without knocking or being let in ( Which is why the dead bolt at our place stays locked now, because he can’t control himself like a normal person. ), stretches out on the couch and drinks beer while he watches her TV and if we’re anywhere near him he starts picking at us and trying to make us mad or feel bad about ourselves, and then acts like we have a great relationship when questioned about it. I’m so tired of people doing that – they start shit with you and if you retaliate then you are the one with the problem!

So, anyway, she calls me up in the middle of the night last night and says she’s had a fight with him ( Apparently it’s my fault, but I’ll get to that later. )and she’s coming over, long story short she didn’t come over and gave me no calls or excuses for that behavior, so I waited up half the night for her and eventually fell asleep waiting.

Now, onto what’s my fault about this fight. Mom claims she’s got people following her on the road, trying to kill her – yes, that’s really what she claims – and that it’s because of her work. Bossman buys it hook, line and sinker and I don’t. Bossman, the other day, asks me if I believe she’s being followed and I asked him if he wanted the truth – he said he did. So, I told him I think she’s making it up to gain attention and sympathy, and I do think so. Well, he told her I said that – now I’ve told her eight hundred times that I don’t believe she’s being followed – but when she called she was furious, as if I’d been spreading rumours about her. He asked, what was I supposed to say? “Duh, I dunno, I have to ask Mommy what I think.”!? He can bite me and so can she.

I’m in the midst of an arguement with a girl I barely know on a forum I won’t name. She’s pissed at me because my forum signature bashes Mel Gibson – as if I need to apologize for not liking a bigot – and she let me know, right away, that I’m going to hell for my beliefs. Well, that explains a lot.

See, I’d always wondered how Gibson’s traffic ticket turned into “Jews blow”, and now I see it. It’s a Christian thing! This girl is pissed at me for not liking someone she likes, so, rather than say she disagrees with me and cite examples for why she thinks I’m wrong about this, she immediately she attacks my religion and character. Because, if I’m evil and I’m going to hell, then anything I say or feel can be immediately discounted, right? Is that encoded in the Bible somewhere? Discredit people with heathanism instead of offering a rebuttle? To quote a famous idiot, no wonder I think they’re evil, lol.

She actually told me, flat out, that Hitler practiced my religion ( Asatru, er Odinist is closer ) and that my people are responsible entirely for the Halocust which she has claimed in the past couldn’t have ever happened because there would be “A lot less Jews on TV is Hilter killed them all”.

First of all, if you believe everything Mel Gibson says, you’re a fucking moron. Great, Christians love him because he made religious snuff film, that’s nice for you, but to take his word as fact when his ‘historical’ films like Apocalypto are so predjudice, racist and have so little historical accuracy is insane.

Secondly, there is no way in hell that Hilter could have worshipped Odin. It’s just not possible. Let’s set aside the fact that Hitler, on more than one occasion, said that Christianity was the future of the Nazi Party and also set aside that he used up a lot of beliefs and different religions to get what he wanted, that doesn’t mean he actually believed in them. No, those facts pale in comparison to this one. Hitler committed suicide. Suicide! No Odin worshipper in their right mind would do that! Do you know what you have to do to get to Valhalla? It’s sure as hell not blow your own head off like a fucking coward! You have to, have to, die bravely in battle and then maybe the Valkyries will take you to Valhalla. Odin has no use for a coward, and Hitler wasn’t a stupid person – anything he practiced he would’ve known the rules to, inside and out.

It’d be nice if people did their research before opening their mouths.

I can’t get that damn “Willy Wonka” song out of my head. That one the dolls are singing at nearly the beginning of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? Elfman does this to me on purpose, lol. You know, I still can’t get “Making Christmas” out of my head.

Now, onto blog meat, boys and girls! Who here is tired of people who freak out for no reason? Me, too! And here I thought I was the only one. What a small world.

Anyway, onto the point. Yesterday, I was chatting via MSN with a friend who has a website dedicated to a celebrity made entirely of garbage, and I noticed another friend had their MSN status written up to reflect that they, too, were making a site on said celebrity. So, here’s where I become stupid in this story. I told the friend I was chatting with, that someone else seemed to be making a similar fansite.

Now, sometimes I forget that this particular friend can’t handle anything. She freaked out, I mean as if I’d just told her I was sleeping with her boyfriend. That’s how she took it. She grilled me for almost an hour wanting to know who the girl was making the other site, where her current site(s) are, how to get in touch with her, claiming, much like a cartoon villian, that she just wanted to talk to the other girl.

As if I’m going to let Crazy Pants yap at my friend and give her a fucking panick attack? This girl can not handle competition. Awhile ago I joked about making a competing site, and she flipped out. There was a 2 hour bitchfest about it. I’m tempted to make the site now, or do something to piss her off, because I’m tired of her baby-ass hissy tantrums. She once forbade me to blog about a situation in which she’d bitched at me for nothing. Granted, I did it anyway, lol.

The best part is, when it finally got to me and I got really pissed off, she goes, “Sorry for being nice and trying to help you.” – What. The. Fuck?

I just read the funniest email from a girl who wants to know why I haven’t gone back to a forum I used to post at, as if the fact that I barely have time to blog these days isn’t good enough? I really don’t have time for any of the forums I post at regularly, I barely have time for this blog but I wanted to take the time to answer it anyway since I get emails like this quite often.

The short answer is “Elitist Bullshit”.

Now, I’m an elitist asshole – we know this. It’s been established. I fully believe that everyone who has the time and ability should consider using it to better themselves, one way or another. I think that, instead of pretending to read to fit in at your local coffee shop, you may want to, I don’t know, actually read the words on the page. You may learn something.

And, when it comes to web design, or websites in general, I tend to lean towards the same keep on learning attitude. I, personally, have been on the net here or there since about 1995, I made my first ‘website’ ( as in, with more than one page ) in 1998, but I didn’t learn how to validate my own coding until this year, so I can understand from personal experience how some coders and designers may be lagging a bit, because valid coding really isn’t universally taught, and it wasn’t until I stumbled on a blog while doing some research for an essay that I found out why validating your coding is important.

But the point is, when I found out the basics I tried to apply them, via various site tutorials, books, resources like W3, ect., and my site is better for it. But that doesn’t make my site better than anyone elses, nor does it make me better than anyone else. I also don’t consider myself worse than people who are better at this than I am, and I don’t consider my site worse than theirs. I’m still in the process of learning, just like everyone else.

However, apparently I’m the only one who thinks this way. I’ve found, via their own mouths, that most people who’ve chosen a certain style of web design consider themselves better than people who don’t share their views. Not different. Not more well informed. Not even more advanced. Just…better. As in they, themselves, are better than another human beings because they typed something on the internet one time. What’s hilarious is that I’ve been to non valid sites, or sites with trendy, yet not cross-compatible layouts, who feel towards the validation Nazis the way said Nazis feel about them.

The trendoids, with tiny fonts and absolute div positioned band layouts, look down on the XHTML set as being ‘boring’, many citing the fact that valid layouts tend to look a hell of a lot like default wordpress layouts ( and with good reason ). For this reason, they feel themselves to be better that people with validly coded, minimalist designs ( Web 2.0 ), which seem to be all the rage amongst what you could laughingly call the ‘Higher Ups’.

And they all look down on the geoshitties set, the ones who favor content above all else and don’t care where their site is hosted or what it looks like as long as their written content is good.

Further more, they can’t be talked to or reasoned with. Not a damn one of them, which is a shame, since if the web community weren’t such a hostile place, the concepts of design creation for the sake of creation ( trendoids ), content above all else ( geoshitties ) and valid, universally compatible coding ( nazis ) could meet in the middle to make a better style of freelance hobby design.

And this would be the reason I’ve stopped going to the forum entirely. I refuse it. I refuse to believe that some people should be able to put others down, claiming superiority and cementing it using the ‘You are gonna get it’ bully tactics they love so much, instead of getting to know them or offering help. How useless you all are.

Do yourself a favor, and stay away from Great Western Bank. I use the bastards because there are no other banks in town, or there weren’t any when I opened my account but now I sorely need to move my ass and get a new account at a brand new bank.

First of all, I cancelled an account with iPower, one that I had opened with my debit card. Well, iPower didn’t really ‘cancel’ my account, which means they charged me for a domain renewal that I don’t actually want, because I had already transferred to a new registrar in April, but the fee for said renewal gave me a $30 overdraft at the bank. Well, I contact iPower and bitch them out, they said they’d give me a refund and told me that if I let the bank know what happened, they’d refund the overdraft since it wasn’t a charge I authorized.

Now, I can’t afford $30 for something I didn’t even charge, so I call my bank to explain the situation and this is what I get, “Well, why did they know your mastercard number? Why did you buy something if you don’t want it? Well, I can’t help you if you don’t want to pay your fees, my dear, that’s the way the world works. *giant sigh* Well, yes I suppose we can refund the overdraft this one time, but don’t you let it happen again, okay sweetheart? Now you have a nice day, bubye.”

What. The. FUCK!? Why do they do that? Every time I go into that bank or call them, for any reason, the people who work their treat me ( and my sister ) like we should be glad they even allow us to have an account there. Their customer service is horrible. They talk down to us, insult us ( it’s degrading ), are often rude and, if there’s any problem with the account and we take it up with them, they act so put upon, like we ruined their day by asking them to do their fucking jobs.

They’ve also, on more than one occasion, gotten annoyed with us for not using their bank-issued checks because it’s apparently wasteful, and we don’t know how the ‘real world’ works. Excuse you, I can get more checks for less cash, including the shipping, online and they’re pretty, why does it matter where I get much checks? They even refused to honor one of my deposit slips because it came with my not-from-them checks.

Does anyone use Washington Mutual, Citibank or any other online bank that they can talk up or down to me? I really want to cut this bank loose, I’m tired of them going out of their way to make me feel three inches tall.

Well, my net cut off again and I was net-less for a few days. Fun, as always.

So, I’m still sick, and to top the bastard off, I’m not only still sick but I’m even sicker than I was. At least I’ve got the sore throat thing starting to pass but I’m beginning to think I’m going to need to move into an apartment with a built-in vomitorium or something, because I just can’t shake the queasies. I’m just trying to keep myself hydrated and hoping to Odin it’ll pass.

Yes, this really is the extent of anything remotely dramatic happening in my life at the moment, and you have a front row seat to all the exciting boredom. Don’t you feel privileged?

Well, I’m gonna be concentrating entirely on getting the hell out of here. I’ve done my time helping my mom with my stepdad, her business, taking care of her friends and their problems, and now she’s renting a room out to an elderly woman who’ll need help and looked after and at this point I think I speak for Laota when I say, “Nuh uh.”

So, being broke, I had to make a tough decision. Do I want to go into debt to get the hell out of here? The answer is, no, of course. Am I willing to? Yes. YES. No more of this, I want to go HOME. Back to California, out of the frigging midwest, I wanna live somewhere where I can walk to the grocery store instead of having to hitch a ride from a passing pick up.

I’ll try to keep up with my blog, and I’ll be moving all my sites to a paid-for-the-year hosting space even though I can’t really afford it at this point, but I figure if I do it this way I won’t have to worry much about them while we move and get settled. And the move probably won’t be for a few months, but early warning is better than none, right? lol.

Anyway, anyone who lives around L.A. or Anaheim ( preferred the latter ), please if you know of any job openings or any shitty places to rent, let me know! I’ll love you forever and give you my foot, or at least A foot.

So, in the immortal words of Brier Rabbit, “I’m movin’ on, say goodbye to me!”

Well, well! What a neat journey I had to the local grocery today! The neatest of all neat journey-like things! In fact, it’s even neater than the time I accidentally stapled my sleeve to the roof with a staple gun while trying to fix the damn shingles. Anyway, on with my beautiful story, hmm?

Okay, the last time I checked I lived in a free country, in an ever progressing world where a person can walk to the store without nearly being hit by a rusted pick up full of drunken hillbillies, right? Without having “Witch!” and “Don’t put a spell on me!” screamed out the window at you by cowards who aren’t even man enough to get out of the damn truck or even slow it down? Guess what? The answer to this is apparently a resounding NO! The best part ever of this story is that their reason for doing this ( yes, REASON ) is that, big surprise, they believe one thing and I believe another.

Now, usually I can handle this kind of thing. In fact, living in Satan’s Asshole means this isn’t the first time something like this has happened, and if you’re Jewish, Pagan or Athiest and you live in Middle America or The South, then you know exactly what I mean. I swear to all that’s good and sweet in Odin’s beard, the Bread Basket of America’s looking more and more like the Fruit Basket of Hell the longer I live here. Had I the money for a bus ticket, at this point I’d be gone.

At least I’ve learned how to bottle it up, sanely and rationally, then let it embitter me to the point where I end up being a bigot in my own right. For shit’s sake, I just want to live MY life. Mine. Not theirs. I leave their ignorant, aggressive, dunder-headed, pedo asses alone, don’t I? Great Zombie Jesus, please do the same for me!

If you’ve known me for awhile you know I’m seven years sober, six years clean, and aside from a few very dedicated friends, when it came to professional help I was so broke that it’s something I really had to go through on my own. I’ve still got cravings for things I’d rather not list off on a public blog, but the drug and alcohol abuse are non existant at this point but it’s not something you ever shake.

I think the transition would have been easier for me if I were treated instead of left on my own, and I would have given my left leg to go to Stone Hawk, in fact there are times when I still would. Very much so. From what I read on their website, the staff is peopled by former addicts who know what it’s like and what it takes to treat someone who’s in the depths of an addiction. I’d probably be better off now if I’d had that.

If you’ve come from a commenting network, feel free to comment on the post below if this one doesn’t pertain to you or you can’t relate to it.

Jennie sent me the very sweetest email! Please, if you feel the need to send me one like it, just pick up your keyboard, toss it in the toilet and flush, m’kay?

Hi.

You don’t know me obviously. I used to read your blog on beautifulsin.net and I was so happy to find that you had a new blog and that your words didn’t die but…I was sad to see that you have become a kiss ass like everyone else. I see you link jem on your site a lot… well so does everyone else. you are just like everyone else and you’re up jem’s ass and it’s sad because your blog was once so free and very original and I’m sad that you don’t do that now.

my opinion only.

jennie.

I’m grateful that you liked beautifulsin.net, but I’m just as big a stubborn loudmouth here as I was there. And, P.S., I’ll link whoever I want to and I’m sorry, correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t you an asshole if you don’t link and credit those you’ve gotten help from? Jennie, do us all a favor and follow your keyboard. *hears a distant flush*

Whee, I had the best ever experience on a forum a few minutes ago. This fanart forum, which will remain nameless, is now officially on notice, and here’s why:

A newbie member of the forum, with only 73 posts ( gasp! ) to the ‘elite’ members 2000 plus each posts, put up two of her newest wallpaper compositions in the wallpaper topic for The X-Files. Now, granted, they weren’t the most beautiful wallpapers I’d ever seen, in fact, if I were going to be one hundred percent honest about it, I’d have to say that there were several things that made them unuseable for their purpose on my desktop. However, this girl is 14, she’s been making fanart for 2 months, and she’s a lot more advanced than I was at 2 months along. On top of this, there were great things about her art, such as a nice grasp of image size/positioning, and she took the time to make her own textures & brushes.

Back to the story. This girl, I’ll all her Girl, posted her pieces and asked for constructive critique on her work. Guess what she got instead? You’re a good guesser! The following is actual fightage, copy-pasted from said forum with names removed. I do understand that this will get me ban, lol. exotic car dealers.

GIRL: I just want some FB on my post I’m new to art and I wonder what font to use? I can change the font but I would appreciate help because I’m not sure what looks good. :) !

Elitist One: Well, first of all you can stop posting smiley faces after everything you say. I don’t mean to be a bitch but it kind of pisses me off. Anyway. IF you really want to know the truth, and IF you can take the critique you need, then I’ll give it to you, but don’t bitch at me if your feelings get hurt because honestly, you aren’t my problem. So, tell me, can you handle it?

Elitist Two: No One lose that big picture it makes you look like such a n00bee. I can’t help you if you don’t change it and start from scratch.

GIRL: I can handle it but I don’t know why I can’t use smile faces if they are part of the forum and they are an option?

Elitist One: I’m not gonna argue with you, but I am a moderator and I’d appreciate it if you’d listen to what I say about the smiley faces which are called SMILEY FACES by the way, not smile faces. Idiot.

Elitist Three: SCRIPTINA! ROTFLMFAO! How long have you even been making art? You are such a newb!

Elitist One: She has for two months, she said so in NAMEREMOVED’s topic, look up there.

Elitist Two: Two months? Then she’s OLD enough to no better than to use that font.

Elitist One: At least she isn’t using arial or century gothic, but that doesn’t stop her from not PAYING ATTENTION on the boards. We TELL YOU IN EVERY HOW TO TOPIC how to make a good looking wallpaper, so this is unexcuseable.

Me: WTF? What is your problem? Her wallpaper isn’t perfect but it isn’t bad, NAMEREMOVED, and I remember what your stuff looked like before you started copying off of 44suburbia so shut the hell up.

Elitist One: What’s your problem, Faith? She asked for the truth. Back off or you’ll be banned. I know you’re NAMEREMOVED’s friend but that doesn’t make you bulletproof and I WILL be in your face from now on so watch your step.

Me: Lmao, do I really threaten you that much? You’re so quick to talk me down to NAMEREMOVED, I’m starting to think you’re in love with her or think I’m competition or something.

Elitist One: BANNED. I promise you.

Can you believe that crap? I hate elitists. And it annoys me that I’m one of them, though I’m more of a music snob than anything and I always think I’m right ( lol ) but you get what I mean. I can’t imagine how you get so full of yourself that you’ll talk like that to someone you don’t even know just because you think art should be done ‘a certain way’. Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of art?
