I’m screwing around and wasting time on a pretty cool site, here. I’d never thought about it before, but a blog about financial futures, trading tips and whatnot, market analysis, etc. is a perfect fit for the web right now. The only problem is, I have no money so all the neat successful trading tips and features don’t do me much good, but they’re a good read and the site is just really interesting and well organized. Deinfately worth a look, I’m bookmarking this one.

As it turns out, I can’t bring myself to not bitch and moan about Quarterlife. I don’t know how many of you have seen this dog turd, but it’s one of the worst shows I’ve seen since they cancelled The O.C.! First of all, blogger? I don’t think so, lol. How many of you would film your friends without telling them and post the footage on the internet for everyone to see? Does that sound like friendship? The people who made this have no nettequette! I’m gonna blast it on Shibuya today, lol.

Nitwit!

I’m a nitwit! I shit you not, this is what was written on one of those fakey diva blogs about a comment I left:

This cracks me up. I love when people take the time to write paragraphs to me and bitch me out… ESPECIALLY when they’re bitching about what I didn’t write! I wrote below that I should make time for myself–not for others, but I guess you can’t expect everyone to be educated enough to read. It’s because I make time for the things I do to be successful, AND make time for others is why I need time for myself. Nitwits. Obviously, you didn’t read the DISCLAIMER. I’ll do you one favor and delete your half-brained comment so that any visitors from my site won’t automatically label you a moron. Call it a favor.

Lmao, I couldn’t have made up a more hilarious response. See, both I and another commenter were both *shudder* bold enough not to agree 100% with this chick’s bitch-whining, so she posted this edit on her blog.

Now, I wasn’t sent there by Despair.nu, actually someone else was and they told me about the post – they were right about the funny. I adore people like this! They give me something to blog about when I don’t have anything else to do, lol.

Yeesh! Apparently my back has decided I don’t deserve a spine and set up shop in New Mexico, meaning my back is killing me. I don’t know what the deal is, but I do know that somehow migraine meds work on it, it just doesn’t kill all the pain and it hurts like hell to sit at my damn desk and work with it acting up the way it is. I, honest to Odin, have no idea how I farted it up this time, pew!

Speaking of farting things up, I seriously need to change this stupid layout – it’s defaultism is starting to annoy me to no end. I had one, a wintery one with a snow man, I just never got around to installing it and now the Christmas/Solstice season is over due to my hellish schedual. Hehe. Hellish is a fun word. Yes, I know, I’m easy to amuse, lol.

Speaking of this thing I wasn’t actually speaking of, some friends and I have decided to open a forum, though lord knows how it’ll turn out. I don’t know yet if it’s going to be a free for all or for just our little circle. I think I like the latter better, because none of the horrible things I say there offend them – you know, because they have a collective sense of humor and honesty about themselves that I find most people lack, which is why I don’t really like most people I suppose. Well, that and their tendency to all look alike. I hate that. And everything should be done my way, lmao.

Server Move

Oct. 9th, 2007 01:56 am

Wonderful, because my old host no longer accepts echecks via paypal I have to move two of my domains ( both fairly big ones, too ) to a new server so I’ll probably end up on BangGraphix again, which isn’t too big a deal since I get a discount for working there.

The only problem I’ve got is that I’m afraid of losing info when I move to the new host, which almost always happens, because new hosts like to try and kill me with a knife. At least I’ve been on BG.biz long enough that I know the ins and outs and don’t have to worry about relearning a new control panel, since they use good old cPanel, and they’ve been really reliable since we all switched to a new backend. I just don’t want the hassle, on account of I’m lazy, lol.

I *probably* don’t need a bar sink. Do I need a bar sink? Someone, tell me I don’t, because I want one and I may waste money buying one over at Faucet.com, who have a zillion bar sinks to choose from and I’m so damn domestic these days that the idea of a faucet you can swing out of the way appeals to me far more than I want to admit, lol. Shouldn’t I be thinking about buying shoes or make up? I’m *fairly* sure I’m a girl, or at least in some way woman-like, and I shouldn’t be thinking about plumbing fixtures, lol.

WordPress is giving me a hard time because it *hates* me. I’m seriously starting to think it’s hiding around the corner with a knife and a vile of poison, ready to strike, but I swear upon all you hold dear that this layout will change if I have to stab and poison WordPress before it can do it to me, lol.

I’ve sharpened my coding skills a bit since this ‘episode’ of Shibuya 109, and hopefully the next layout will be better all around. If anyone knows how to validy use image maps, though, in a way that actually works I’d love to hear it and I’d give you a dead/stabbed/poisoned WordPress carcass that I just found one day and didn’t murder, lol.

God I am so freaking tired. I’m starting to think that I’m being followed around by succubi or psychic vampires who steal your energy and feed on your life force to survive, thereby reducing you to a sad, exhausted shell of what you once were like what happened to Vera Wang, lol.

At least for the rest of the month my hours are still down to 14/day and I get my day off every week, which changes mid October or earlier, and I’m so not ready for 18 hour days again – even if it’s only for a little while.

I’m just not up to anything at all anymore, I’m so exhausted, I wish I knew what I could do or if there were a supplement or something I could take to boost my energy even a little bit. I think if I were making any kind of real money, like even minimum wage, this would be easier to take – I could always say that it was at least worth all the crap to a degree.

Whoo hoo, I didn’t lose any info – I tend to lose info when switching servers, but this time it went relatively smoothly. Which, to me, is a huge surprise, because I spent most of the move thinking, “This is going to fuck up, I know this is going to fuck up, it has to because I only have an hour to do it – that’s the kiss of death.” but I managed to, hopefully, get all of my files moved with the exception of Guestblock, which I’ll be replacing shortly.

Random: I love Thora Birch movies – you don’t have to understand what I’m talking about, lol.

Mostly just because I need more transfer per month, I’m moving Shibuya over to a new server, so if things look wonky for a day or two, that would be why.

I’m getting rid of Guestblock, it’s cute but it’s a spam magnet and I can’t keep up with it’s ass, especially since I’m no officially too lazy to try, lol.

I’ve been thinking a lot about weither or not I should add visitor content to Shibuya, and I’m tied on the subject. I mean, were I to add anything it would probably just be essays and rants on things that’ll end up making my visitors mad, and while I don’t purposely piss people off, or go out of my way to do so, it’s just the way it is. I don’t think I can bring myself to be part of the Future Soccer Moms of America just to put people I don’t even know at ease.

In fact, when it comes to this site I’m entirely lazy. I used to blog almost daily and now, working as much as I do ( 65-80 hours a week. No, that’s not a typo. Thank the Gods it’s just temporary. ), I don’t have a hell of a lot of time to do the things I want/need to do and write an interesting blog. Besides that, nothing interesting ever happens to me, lol.

On the other hand, there really isn’t anything here for the people who drop by. While I refuse to create something I don’t care about just to keep people entertained, I also realize that a site with no content can’t really be called a site.

So, here I stand, at a full stop, trying to make up my damn mind. Yes, this rant is entirely pointless to everyone reading it and only really makes any sort of sense or difference to me. Enjoy.

PPP Return?

Jun. 8th, 2007 04:22 am
bento_box: KFC Christmas (Default)
Well, apparently I’ve got to wait a month before I add my other site to PayPerPost, so please expect a few posts coming your way on this blog until my other site is approved.

New layout, as you can see I’m getting back to my old self a bit. It really didn’t turn out like I wanted it to, because the typography just didn’t come together so now the site title and tagline are so generic looking I want to gouge my eyes out. But at least it’s more like ‘me’. That’s something.

Just an update on the PPP situation, in the next few days I’ll be posting 3 more PPP opprotunities and I wanted to let you guys know ahead of time that it would be happening. The reason for this is that after I get 10 approved posts, I can add other domains, which means I can add one of my other sites and shift my PPP blogging to that domain instead of this one.

There are two good reasons for this:

One I’d rather not have people who come here from Despair and other comment exchanges, to feel they have to try to comment on a sponsored post, since it sort of defeats the purpose of an actual, thought out comment. Why they can’t just comment on th e blog beneath it, I don’t know, but whatever.

Two Shibuya is one of my lowest linked/ranked sites, and if I move to one of my busier domains, it not only gives better exposure to the advertisers but I’m also granted the ability to take higher paying opprotunities, which means less PPP ads and more things I want.

Another benefit of the higher pay is that it’ll give me the cash to get a bed ( I’m going with a roll-up, fakey futon until I can afford the real thing ) and a better shot at making it out of this hell hole.

Mojo-Jojo

I forgot how much I love Kar Yan Lam. I just got finished watching Koma and, holy shit in a hammmock, is that a good film! It’s one of the few I’ve seen recently that isn’t a Yurei flick, and I’m just insane about it. I’ll review the bastard when I get some time, atm I’m just flyby blogging since I’ve gotta go outside and shovel mud. Thank the Gods the trash collection actually took the garbage this time! They didn’t last week and the flood water washed it all over the damn place.

I’m trying my damndest to re-design Beautiful Sin, but it’s just not working. My old habits creep back, but something’s got to be done about it because it’s so plain it’s hurting my face. I may go with green/blue/orange, but I really don’t want it to end up looking like a buisiness site which is what happened last time and why the temporary layout is only half finished.

I’m really trying to steer clear of hard colors but it’s making my designs look incomplete, and that annoys me to no end. My problem is that I do the graphics then work backward from there, and that always ends in muted shades. I may do some experimenting with Shibuya’s layout before I do anything drastic over at BS just to flex my color muscles a bit. I don’t know what’s wrong with me, I used to be so into rich colors and now I couldn’t work up a decent colorscheme if I had a gun pointed at my head. Maybe I just need to get my mojo back. No use being a snob without that, right?

I know, I suck. I’ve been gone too long, but I have a valid reason! My net was literally gone for a few days and now that I’ve got it working again, it’s so slow that it takes almost an hour to completely load my Netflix queue page so it took me 3 days to upload this layout.

I apparently don’t know when to stop it with the new layouts. Not my best work, but I’m obsessed with pink and I’ve got, like, no net connection so this is what you get, lol.

It’s harder than I thought it would be to use stock photograph’s, since so many times they just don’t have the clarity I’m used to and I end up with something I’m just not happy with. I need to find some new royalty free resources with decent, medium or higher quality stock images of Asia and the tropics ( Hawaii, Bermuda, The Amazon, ect. ), and hopefully something better will come of my work.

So, there’s another few movie reviews on the way, and I’m running out of Asian horror films to see, so if you’re a buff, too, and have a favorite, please comment or email me. I’m starting to panic, I don’t think I can get through the summer without at least 2 or 3 A-Horror films a week, lol. By the way, does anyone know where I can get a decently priced copy of the Japanese version of Red Eye?

New Layout

bento_box: KFC Christmas (Default)
Finally got this layout finished, I think I’m starting to get the hang of this whole wordpress and valid coding thing. I have to admit, I’ve got a seriously long way to go before I’ve got it down, though. At least it’s coming easier now, lol.

Not a hell of a lot to post, since I’m trying my damndest to get my backgrounds back up and downloadable but Beautiful Sin‘s finally up and running, meaning the brushes are back up, wordpress is themed up and valid ( whoo hoo! ), and I’ve started work on the new templates which, as it turns out, is a lot easier than I thought it would be.

Just a random sidenote: The Riches is farging awesome, and I’m amazed that it’s made me a fan of Minnie Driver again, even though for the past decade I’ve wanted to rip every hair out of her head with my bare hands, lol. And who gave Eddie Izzard permission to be man-sexy instead of woman-sexy? I didn’t say he could do that, and now I’m confused, lol.

Good Day

Apr. 15th, 2007 03:10 am
bento_box: KFC Christmas (Default)

Aside from waking up with a wicked pain in my back, heck and arms like usual, my day thus far has been surprisingly good. I get most of the day off, for once, and due to said free time I’ve had a chance to mess with my CSS, font sizes, colors, ect. I may redesign Shibuya again, entirely. I kind of want to do a pixelled nautical theme with, like, anchors or ships in a harbor and a lighthouse but every time I start working on the harbor water I always instictively want to write “RINGU” in red right smack dab in the middle of the graphic, lol.

I’m working on Beautiful Sin every chance I get and once I get a layout finished for it, I’ll have my brushes and backgrounds back up for you guys because, though almost nobody said a damn thing when they were up, since they’ve been down I’ve gotten loads of nice email asking for them back. While I’m appreciative of the nice comments after the fact, I would have been far more open to bringing them back had anyone so much as commented on them almost at all while they were around instead of linking directly to them and claiming the brushes as their work. So, yes, that would be stealing the brushes, the credit AND my data transfer. Nice! Sunshiney, even.

I don’t want to bring the templates back until I’ve had time to validate them and get a decent, seperate theme for that site. If I don’t do these pretty things, I’ll kick the shit out of myself later.
