I haven’t picked this up in some months, but this morning seemed like a good enough time to revisit The LiveJournal Project. In short: When I started blogging, it was on a website called LiveJournal (yes – the same website for those of you that were paying close attention at the beginning of The Social Network.) Last year I imported all the old posts into this blog for posterity. The thing is, most of my LiveJournal posts were locked (aka “made private”) so I have started going back and unlocking them one at a time.
The process has been fun for me (and my friends who were around then) as we revisit the old days of convention fandom and the OMGDRAMAZ that ensued in the early days of online interaction.
Here’s the rest of July 2003:
- Speaking of 15 minutes of fame…
- So where DID I get my arguing style from?
- posted this as a reply… but:
- Whoohoo! Censorship!
NOTE: This is prime EllJay material. Dade from the old school crew of Anime Festival Orlando arguing with me on an online forum. It does beg the question, though: what ever happened to Shojo Jojo? LOL
- Fujikoma vs. Wasabi?!!!
- As long as we can laugh when it’s all over…
- 14 minutes and 45 seconds into Dade Bell’s fifteen…
- He’s still a sad sad little man…
- “Tom Croom… the Bill Gates of fandom”
NOTE: Oh this post is pure gold. Check out this nugget: “This AFO will be the last con I ever attend outside of FX. I was kinda already feeling that way, but now… I’m just sick of seeing how Tom Croom and Wasabi Anime have taken over just about EVERY FUCKING ASPECT of anime in Florida. Jesus, they don’t even PRODUCE anything. They just latch on to whatever is available and go from there. I can’t read a SINGLE item about fandom in Florida without it turning into some kind of Wasabi thing.”
- Anyone want to buy me an early XMas gift? (Knight Rider)
- Yes… It’s all woman’s fault.
- Quotable Quotes…
NOTE: You can still buy this t-shirt online. AWESOME!
- Sleeping puppy!
