Funny, it's only been 6 days since I last posted. Feels longer than that.

I haven't been around much because I'm taking a break from the social parts of fandom. I came to the horrifying realization that I've begun taking things far, FAR too seriously, and one of the things I used to pride myself on (at least when it comes to my fangirling) was my ability to step back and remember that in the end, it's just fandom. I've been losing that ability as of late, as ertai_lapis and mtfanatic have so kindly pointed out to me, so I decided to go through a period of radio silence. Oh, and to stop reading comment threads. I like things better this way. Especially because fandom has suddenly decided it needs another hate meme. I haven't looked and have no plans to--I never do, really--but it's just a reminder that when fandom starts becoming "srs bznz" then it's time to go do something else. Lately "something else" has been work, but, well.

Today started off absolutely crap and then suddenly made a turn for the absolutely fucking amazing. I lack the energy to explain it all, and I really need to go put clothes in the wash, so a proper story will have to wait for later. But yeah, feeling pretty good right now. I'm even being optimistic and not assuming things will go horribly wrong in a short period of time! \o/

Oh hey, it's the 22nd in Korea. New Epik High album get! Oh, and I suppose it's that guy's birthday today, too. You know, the one I have such a huge crush on. :)
Current Mood: pleasedpleased

Seriously, my kpop fandom experience is limited to Em, and you, and a few flisters I had beforehand that I trust, and that's it. I pretty obviously don't have any tolerance for hating on members of anything, I don't want to hear about so and so's OMG SUPER HOBVIOUS PLASTIC SURGERY!!!1 or hear that you think someone is obnoxious or arrogant for talking a lot. It is so, so, so much more peaceful this way. ♥

Also Em's in the other room right now totally drawing me Henry killing things with a violin bow, so~ My life is pretty good like this thanks

I'm beginning to realize this! I mean, being sociable has the obvious benefit of helping me meet new and awesome people (as evidenced by this conversation, lol,) but recently I've been finding myself doing less meta on fandom and more bitching about it. And that's...just not what it's about.

Yeah, your life sounds pretty awesome right now. :D It is disturbingly easy to picture mochiface killing things with a violin bow!

It is disturbingly easy to picture mochiface killing things with a violin bow!

This is made more salient by the fact that he's a top and very deadly secret agent in our spyverse, and he carries a special bow strung with razor wire for just such an occasion. :')

Oh god, I am feeling so burned out with Kpop fandom, and nothing else is really holding my interest. :\

I've been looking forward to the remix album, though, but lol I actually forgot it was Tablo's birthday, too.
There's no obvious, rational form for sadness...: JaeJoongmardigrasmaven on July 22nd, 2009 06:05 am (UTC)
Does wank make you laugh? Go read some.

Oh, side-note, I know you watched ReBoot back in the day, there was a secret about it and Saint Young Men, they reminded me of you. Maybe they'll cheer you up.

Or... you know... there's always porn... DICK NOOSE!!! XDDD
