While I admit to being a pain in the butt, I’m usually a not-so-awful person. I’m not the kind of person who should be consistantly smacked down by the evil-to-me forces of Karma, but I am for some reason.

For those of you who emailed me asking what happened yesterday, Beautiful Sin was hacked (along with everything else on the server) by someone who seems to just hack for the glory of it (is there even glory in hacking?). I thought that was the poopy tail end of a bad week, but it wasn’t. But I’m bringing you in on the last curtain, let me set up what happened.

Someone who followed Josh on twitter was introduced to me. From day one you could tell this girl was crazy insane, every little thing with her is a drama and she is ALWAYS drunk. Well, I figured she just needed a friend and I tried being nice to her. Didn’t work. Since the tail end of March, every single time I’ve talked to her she’s accused me of everything from making fun of her (never did) to selling her out (to who, how, what?).

She’s not just accusing me, see, she seems to do this to everyone she ever meets – ever. She told me at length that a former friend of hers was so horrible, and all of the awful things they did to her (all turn out to be lies), then tells me about ANOTHER friend who does horrible things to her – and victim, victim, victim. Then this week she tries to ‘pimp’ one of our forums on another forum, which leads her to say that we think we’re better than the other forum (not true) and that we think they’re crazy and we’re scared of them (wtf?) – and we had no idea she was saying that until one of the forum members, who knows we’re not like that, copied what she wrote and posted it so we could read it in case she deleted it (which she did – does that a lot, too).

Well we didn’t immediately jump to her defense and delete what he wrote, so she flew into a rage and posted a long blog about how we sold her out and we’re crazy (yeah WE are crazy, not her?). She even called this other poster a liar over and over and then expected us to apologise to her publicly after the twitter war she started. I’m starting to wonder how she finds the knob to get out of the house in the morning.

After all that was over the sites got hacked (like, immediately), I just get it sorted and go to sleep. When I wake up I find out that Laota‘s PC won’t boot and she has no idea why, so that became my all comsuming whatnot of the day.

Only two good things to come out of the week: Got paid, finally, too bad it all went to bills. Oh and Katie added me to MSN!

Okay, okay, this domain wasn’t swiped but I think it was back-ordered by someone else and as soon as Shibuya-109.org expired (I was too busy to renew, now I’m mad at myself!) it was registered by what looks like a generic nonsense site set up to make money – argh! But since I can just switch domains, that’s what I did. I can’t believe it took me so long to do it, though!

Just a flyby to let you know I’m not dead! My extended hiatus from Shibuya 109 is almost over I hope, and once this move is complete I may get to post daily again which would be great considering I’ve been away from this blog for far too long.

Promise photos of the new house in the future!

Don't Want To Press One for English This was originally something I posted on Facebook, but I decided to make it a full fledged blog post because it makes me so mad I want to start shredding people to messes.

I just saw this picture on a friend’s blog which they found on LATFTB and had to say something. Okay, the subject is obviously the woman in the front holding a sign asking to see Obama’s birth certfificate (would you idiots give that a rest already?), but that’s not what caught my attention. In the back, holding a sign obviously written by the same person (conservatives are notorious for having volunteers mass-create signs and pass them out at tea parties), and looking proud to be an ignorant racist redneck, is the subject of this post.

I hate people like this, do you see her sign? It says, “Don’t want to press one for English “! I’m absolutely tired of these right-wing, slack jawed idiots making all of America look racist and stupid. what’s wrong with pressing one for English? How does it hurt you people to co-exist with others?

Granted, we have to do something about illegal immigration, but people like her (and I’ve met a LOT) want to be surrounded only by their own, they hold themselves up to be some suprior shining example of what a person should be, when in reality they’re lacking on every front. For people who are so ‘patriotic’, they don’t know the first thing about what America should be, or what it has been – the good and the bad.

They talk about loving the constitution and have never read it, they talk about what ‘rights’ they’re granted in the bill of rights and simply ignore the ones that don’t apply to them. They used the Bible to justify slavery the way they use it now to justify denying people the right to get married. I’m sick and tired of this, I love my country and I refuse to let them make me ashamed of it.

“Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she

With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me ,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

That’s what it says on our beloved Lady Liberty, and that’s the standard we still hold ourselves up to in the minds of our blind patriots. They love to see us as a shining example of all that’s good and true and pure, and reap the rewards that come with being the land of milk and honey, all the while ignoring the most important facts. They want to say they’re pure bred American stock – their parents were pioneers and settlers and they should get all of the credit and rewards that come with that. What they don’t want is to be held responsible for African slavery or the systematic destruction of the American indigenous people. They want all of the flavor, invention, labor, etc. provided by immigrants but they don’t want to risk the possibility that their child may lose a job fair and square to someone with brown skin who may have worked a little harder for it (and before you start bitching about it, combatting racism, sexism, religionism and predjudice is the reason for affirmative action so it’s your own Thor damn fault – just eat it). They want to show everyone how great America is using lip service, and that’s not something I can get behind.

If you want to be known as a great nation, then you fucking act like a great nation, not like a bunch of cry babies who start their whining the second someting doesn’t go there way. We’re America, damn it, America – why are we letting these people force us to be settle for being just a name? We no longer live in a time when a country can be great by default!

You’re welcome to your opinions about this, but you’re not going to change any facts through bullying and you know it. If you’d like to argue with me about it, press one for English.

Well my new found baby brother is not just stalking me on the interwebs (which is silly, considering I live DOWNSTAIRS and he could just go DOWNSTAIRS and find me, lol), but he’s also officially 20 years old today. Unfortunately for him, that means he’s old enough to legally sell on the black market which, as I’m sure you know, has been acquired by the Walt Disney Corporation.

Mike was also nice enough to share some of his birthday pizza with us last night, which was much appreciated since we’re entirely out of food again (you’d think I’d be thinner with how little I eat and how much I walk, but alas I was meant to be a bacon-fryer’s wet dream). It was nice to be full after so much emptiness, to know pizza after so much un-pizza, to find that a fat lady who wants pizza would find her prayers had been answered. Can that not be called happiness?

Okay enough sillies. Happy Birthday, Douchey! I hope all of the bad things in life happen to you and to no one else!

I’ve had *way* too many encounters with Fangirls lately, and their female counterparts, Fanboys. I’ve heard all sides of arguments I don’t care about, I’ve seen the tshirts ablaze with their respective BS fan crap, I’ve heard the threats and seen the violence. Fangirls and Fanboys have a one sided feud going on, with Fanboys just hating the fuck out of Fangirls for various (some well deserved) reasons and attacking them with their supposed superiority. But what makes a Fangirl different from a Fanboy? Anything?

Well, I’m here to tell you that YES, there are differences – and here they are. I’ll be listing what Fangirls are really like, and how Fanboys are ‘superior’ to them:

Fangirls Are: Scary. They live for their obsessions, and are so knee deep in them that the simple betrayal of the romantic lead in a film leaving his significant other is enough to make them either rejoice and go on living, or literally kill themselves.

Fanboys Are: Scary – wait, didn’t we already say the Fangirls were the scary ones? This has to be a mistake, Fanboys are superior, right? Well, sorry kids, they get just as girly and intense about their own stupid obsession with Halo as your average Avril does about Bella Twilight, they just see the object of their fandom as superior (it’s not) and therefor they can’t be counted among the unthinking, irrational fan masses. They would be wrong.

Fangirls Are: Fat, ugly, geeky, all around unappealing. Granted, this is a stereotype, but how many Megan Fox‘s did you see at the last Trek convention? Yes, girls who wrap themselves entirely in fandoms to the point of elation or devastation are generally doing so because they have nothing else in their lives. You’d swear I fall into this category, what with the fat, ugly and geeky, wouldn’t you? Alas, my stupidity is of another breed. Thank the gods.

Fanboys Are: Exactly the same. We’re talking the same boys (men, whatever) who troll forums looking for slightly imperfect celebrities or characters (female, of course) to call ugly or fat. These same men are, themselves, usually obese, pimple faced, greasy or otherwise unappealingly unkempt. They, like Fangirls, can’t get along in the real world so they choose a smaller pond – WoW, D&D, the internet in general – where their physical attributes can’t be spotted immediately so that they can start over and take their little baby rage out on the world wide web.

Fangirls Are: Tasteless morons. Charmed, Twilight, Ever After. Anything with romance, a bigger than life leading man who falls in love with you, Fangirl, and only you. Granted, some Fangirl obsessions are very good – Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Pirates of the Caribbean, Firefly and Kim Possible come to mind – but most of them center entirely around the Fangirl’s need for love and acceptance, that’s played out through the screen with a lover that can never hurt them – never leave them. Do you think Fangirls watch Supernatural for the storylines, or for the trim? Really?

Fanboys Are: One hundred times worse. They don’t just live through the screen, they take out their hostility and frustration through it. They love to put down Fangirls, making fun of their obsessions with Edward Cullen and Will Turner, while harboring obsessions of their own with Lara Croft and what’s her face from Underworld. Milla Jovovich is never going to blow them – unless… she does! And in their minds, through their screens, she loves them and only them. Rain Ocampo and Faith Lehane are tamed by their masculine wiles, Willow Rosenberg goes straight for their wit and charm, Lara Croft feeds them chocolates without a threatening thought in her pretty little head while the Sports Illustrated models and Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders make love before them on a mountain of chocolate-y pillows. Life is sweet when you’re the king, isn’t it? Especially when you never have to risk rejection by asking a real woman what time it is.

I could go on and on, but what would be the point? Basically this, Fanboys and Fangirls are only really different in one way. Fanboys think they’re normal, superior and metal and none of it’s true. Sure, I like a good fat guy in a Think Geek tshirt to talk nerdy to me from time to time, but at this point I don’t want him to think or speak of his own free will. What would be the point?

Ack, I ran into people I actually know! B and her kids, and S and her son were up at the square to watch the parade – it was Homecoming today, and I didn’t get one single picture of that parade. Granted, that’s not too big an issue, because if I had the only pictures I would’ve wanted were of the local motorcycle enthusiasts and their wicked bikes.

I’ve noticed more and more bikers in town these days, which is weird because that’s not something you ever used to see around the county. This place is so small that they only play one movie a week (on the weekends) and you can’t get a facial to save your life, so how they’re getting harley davidson accessories all the way out here, I do not know. Whatever they’re doing, though, it works – or it works for me, at any rate. Maybe they shop online at RealHog.com, or something? It seems like you can get about anything online these days, if you know where to look.

Is it really necessary for all of the films I want to get ahold of to be discontinued and a zillion dollars on Amazon or not even availble on eBay? I’m not asking much, here, people. Since Breakfast with Einstein isn’t available (say, anywhere?) I’d like a copy of The Christmas Path before friggin’ Christmas and I haven’t been able to find one I can afford for, uh, ever. I’ve been looking for this thing for two years next month, and I’m going absolutely looney fringe trying to find it.

It’s been in the twenties of dollars on Amazon, sometimes getting up to over fifty depending on the time of year, and it just got down to a whopping nine bucks plus shipping while I had no money at all. Now that I’ve got up the money, it’s up in the twenties again and I can’t force myself to buy it at that price. Especially since I only saved up the nine bucks plus shipping. Aaaargh! Stupid, stupid… stupid money! Stupid movie! Stupid Amazon!

I’m gonna kick my mom’s ass, I really am. She’s just decided that a 19 year old guy is going to live with my sister and me – didn’t bother asking us at all whether or not we were okay with it. Nice, huh? I just LOVE my mom, I don’t want to shoot her out of a cannon into the sun at all.

The issue now is that we barely know this guy, and we’re now out of our comfort zone completely, and now the whole house is turned upside down because my mom doesn’t know how to ask nicely. According to her she just found out (she always says that to cause panic so no one can say not to her), according to the kid she’s known for weeks if not months.

What irks me is that she has no human feeling for us, none at all, and while it does dawn on her that some of the things she’s doing could be screwing with our lives she doesn’t give a damn. Not even one.

At least he’s a nice guy, far as I know.

Well some jagoff broke into my Godaddy account and transferred away a ton of my domains. Thank the Gods that Shibuya wasn’t in that account, dude, or it’d be gone but beautifulsin.net no longer works (nor does Laota‘s domain laotasgallery.info), but you can catch us still blogging and still offering free brushes and winamp skins at Beautiful-Sin.co.cc and LaotasGallery.co.cc, plus I’m starting a new blog which I’ll post here once I’ve decided I’m ready to.

Until then I’ll start blogging here again, even though I really don’t want to. I used to love this blog, but it fast because for people who aren’t me and now I just can’t stand it. SO, it’s going to be for me and you can suck it if you want me to change it. Huzzah!

We’ve lost another great (seems like it’s becoming more rapid, doesn’t it?) from the Rockabilly stage. It sucks, he wasn’t maybe one of the most well known but he was and continues to be one of my favorites. I’m particularly fond of Trouble Bound. It’s one of the greatest records, hands down.

Billy Lee passed away yesterday, he will be missed. R.I.P. Billy Lee Riley – October 5, 1933 – August 2, 2009.

I’m tired, and my back hurts, and I hate chickens (even the delicious ones). And, no, I will not break that down any further than saying that living in farm country is really starting to peeve me. Well, not starting… Don’t confuse me! Do I edit your copy?

I’ve been away from general blogging for almost a month, I say general meaning this blog which be-ith my main source of ranting on the interwebs. I don’t even know what’s up with me, I know I said I wouldn’t let myself fall into the habit of messing with my blog to keep the web Nazis off my back but every time I look at this horrible theme, I think in the back of my mind that this is exactly what I’ve done. I can’t make this look the way I want it to, because it’s very make up goes against everything I believe. I almost want to make it as invalid as possible now, as unreadable, dark and weird as possible just to piss them off. But see, that would be me working for their ends again and, to be honest, I really don’t have the time.

What gets me is that I don’t know that I care all that much. In either direction. There was a point in time when I could almost give a crap but these last few years have beaten that out of me entirely. The only thing I care about now, blog-wise, is being a general hater. Which, to be honest, is all I am in real life.

I don’t even go to other blogs anymore, and I haven’t since I quit that whining, bitching, arrogant, ego-driven baby-fest of a forum who shall remain nameless. And I think, now that I’m away from those brats (who sit online for hours looking for websites that don’t do things the way they do so they can blast them and giggle like cheerleaders laughing at the fat kid), I’m kind of worried that I’ll end up on one of those “I’m elite because I follow rules which I made up specifically so that I could be all elite!” blogs that I love so much and then, knowing me, I’ll say something and it’ll start something. And that, to be honest, will take take time out of my day. Ugh. Way to ruin the web, you hypocritic bastages.

Er, stupid every day? Something like that, I don’t know. I have a rant in me, I know I do. I just don’t really know what it is.

I blogged a few days ago about being in a mood, and I thought it was going to be temporary – I really did. But it turns out that I’m not just in a mood, I’m angry as fuck and I have no idea why.

I can’t crawl out of this funk. I can’t force myself to be happy, and I wouldn’t want to if I could, because that kind of thinking isn’t healthy. However. I can usually talk myself into a better state of mind – a ZEN like state, even – and this just isn’t working for me this time around. At least I know enough to keep composure at work, because if I didn’t there would be a hell of a mess to clean up after I finally do get out of these moody blues.

To quote Charlie Brown, “Aaargh!”

I’m in such an odd and joyless mood tonight. I can’t even put my finger on why, I just can’t seem to pick myself up out of the mean reds and I find myself urged to snap at people for… well, not for no reason but even if I feel my reasons are justified, that’s just not how adults behave, lol.

I’m hoping that, once I’m off work for the day, I can take a shower and hit the hay and just sleep it off. I’m in no mood, and I hate it when I’m like that because I’m just no good to anyone. At least it’s not a depression relapse, those come on so slowly that it’s entirely obvious what’s coming and at least I can prepare myself for it. I think I need a tall glass of iced oolong and some Franz Ferdinand, don’t you?

First of all, let me go on the record as saying this post is going to be a stupid fangirl gigglesnort at very best. Secondly, wtf are grown people doing posting this in Google News search?

Having said that, I get to rant a bit. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t like Robert Pattinson – in fact, even with that horrid Twilight under his belt I’ve been a fan of his for quite a few years now (Goblet of Fire, anyone?) but, and here comes the silly girl nonsense, since when did he get to be in Shia LaBeouf’s league? Is this a new thing I’m not aware of?

Yes, I do realize that I’m a bit biased, and that I’m way too old to be even posting this, lol. But the fact that in that poll – in any poll – Robert Pattinson would take 43% and splinter Shia’s lead is insane to me. What’s wrong with this world?

No, this isn’t because I hate Twilight. And yes, I have been accused of hating Kristen Stewart for that reason, an accusation that over looks the fact that she’s a horrible actress with no charm, charisma or personality. I hate Meyer because of Twilight, not the actors. Though I’m not too keen on most of them, either.

So, no, it’s not Twilight that tarnishes Rob’s star for me, it’s just that LaBeouf is all personality and Rob’s… how do I put this delicately? In a way that won’t get me mobbed and killed by fangirls? Rob’s all … smoke and mirrors. I just know Natalie’s going to murder me for saying that, lol.

That may be the weirdest post I’ve ever posted, lol.

I’ve noticed something…odd as of late. Well, more like the last four or five years to be honest. I’ve noticed that my people are gone. Just, entirely gone.

Skaters wear $200 shoes now. When did that happen? When did everyone decide to shop at the same store to be unique? Emo is a look now, and somehow associated with depression. Loads of things have changed in the last decade.

The one thing that really just tugs at my heart is that I haven’t seen another RiotGrrl in about six years. No Kinderwhore’s, no Dollies. No slips and cardigans, dreds and combat boots. No brown lipstick and black nail polish. Girls don’t rock anymore.

I know it’s because I live out in the middle of nowhere, I’m sure there are still a few rock sistah’s left, or I’d hope so at least. I think it started to die when Kathy Lee began crimping her hair.

I’m just old, is what’s wrong. And at some point I should have embraced the fact that I’ll never live in that time and place again, and I should deal with my business suits and pretend I don’t want BugGrrl pants and Airwalks to be buried with me. Being old sucks.

Never wanted to, what was I to do? I can’t help it. I’m in love with this blog. You may not believe this but there was a time when I couldn’t stand to blog here. Not that long ago, actually. Why? Because Shibuya had become something other than what I’d intended it for, and what I’d intended it for was a place to make me happy.

I found myself rethinking my theme designs, rethinking my views, rethinking myself. Because of the amount of negativity associated with blogging these days. But I don’t need that, that’s such bullshit. What I need to do is focus on myself more and do what I want to do. I need to stop letting the little Blogger Elitist on my shoulder run my WWW. It’s making me miserable.

This is my home, god damn it, and that’s the way it’s staying. I pay for it, I design it. If I want to gripe and moan for hours on end about why Katy Perry is full of crap, or why monotheism is tyrannical, or even why the 90s are far superior to the 00s, then I should be able to do it. If I want to get paid for writing reviews on my blog, then I’m going to do it. If I want to change my layout more than I actually post, well, honey I’m going to do that, too. And anyone who has a problem with it deserves what happens to them, a fate for which I am not responsible, lol.

Argh. I’m finally forcing myself to get in gear and redesign this thing. No, I’ve got nothing against the current layout, but I tend to go slightly insane if my themes don’t reflect my own work. It’s a personal preference thing — and a snob thing, I admit it.

Of course I’m now one hundred percent tired of the theme I’m working on, which means once it’s up I’ll have immediate issues with it. The problem, I think, is I’m doing a pixel landscape and it’s taking *forever*, so I’ve been staring at this thing for waaaay too long.

At least I’m going again, even if I’m really not motivated. I’ve been so busy I just haven’t been able to push myself to do anything, not even things I want to do. When work’s over I just want to collapse on the couch and sleep for a million, billion years. I’m exhausted as I type this. I don’t know what’s with me.

Maybe I’ll get some quick oats at the store today or peanut butter and crackers to boost my mood, make myself feel better.

Holy guacamole, it’s been a long time. I swear I didn’t mean to abandon this blog, in fact I’ve been ticked at myself constantly for not having any time for it. The holidays were rawr, hence my near Thanksgiving disappearance. It’s been insane! First the new work projects, then the dealing with my horrible, horrible mother and her horrible boss and his even more horrible The Gap wife.

On top of all that I had a very long bout of salmonella, or however you spell that, and when I wasn’t working I spent what little time I had off either on the john or vomiting, which technically is also on the john, and that’s when I could get out of bed. Laota and I both had to sit out the holidays because of that, but honestly it’s better than spending the holidays around my family, lol.

I’ve barely kept up with my other blog and I haven’t had time to see any new films except for Tropic Thunder so I’m sans new reviews, which always annoys me. I want to try this reviews month thing again but I doubt I’ll have time to do one every day until easily mid-June and by that time the good stuff ( Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Inside Liberty, The Spitehouse, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, etc. ) should be out in full swing and I’ll have some good new schtuff to watch.

I’ll still be keeping up with my normal reviews, products and films mostly, albeit slowly since work is a bitch these days. As if anybody gives three nuggets weither or not I blog, lol.

Why are my birthdays always boring, lonely and freezing? And why, today of all days, did my host go *explode* so that I had to re-install everything? I’m really not loving this layout – it’s very pretty, but I hate having layouts up that aren’t mine even if I couldn’t achieve this in my wildest dreams, lol. I’m just too sleepy and too busy to get my holiday layout up, but it is coming so just for now let’s pretend this isn’t bothering me, hmm?

I may head up to the gas station and get something spam-like to make gyoza with tonight. Birthday gyoza! With spam! Okay, maybe I’m the only one excited, lol.
