About me:

RHETORIC [Heroic: Failure] - Alright. Here we go. We're devoting all your available brain cells to coming up with a question about communism. Scratch that, to coming up with *the* question about communism, the alpha and omega of communism questions, and that question is:

YOU - "Will we still make Hatsune Miku figures under communism? Need to know if I should buy them all now, or wait 'til we get free shit after the proletariat rises up."

I base my personality around various media and some abstract idea of misery. (That's informative enough, right?)

An uncomfortable and inconsistent level of social anxiety means I will almost certainly never message you first - by extension, this also tends to apply to commenting of any kind - but I will be more'n happy to shoot the breeze if you want! (Optionally, I'd appreciate critique on my page via IMs; if you think it's not very easy to read or just illegible somewhere, yell at me.)

Additional deets in the pin. It's really just more of an addendum to the Music segment, though. If our tastes are strikingly similar, mmmmaaaaaybe consider adding me? /shrug

trans rights!

Who I'd like to meet:

uhhhhhh cool people. Which I guess is just a lazy way of saying "anyone with whom my interests match." In all seriousness, I'd like it if we shared at least one or two interests / obsessions / whatever. I don't wanna clog my friends list too much.

Who I'd rather not meet:

Barebones DNI: racism + homophobia, friend collector(!), insufficiently alternative (you're free to interpret this one however y'want). NSFW stuff's fine; my avi stems from an '09 exhibitionism/yuri doujin, so y'know.

On the off-chance that I decline your req, it's never meant out of malice; only basic conflict of taste / interest / whatever. Blocks are a different matter entirely, duh.

Is the mailman good or evil?

Report Comment



neither. the mailman is locked into true neutrality, whether he likes it or not. such is his duty.

counter-question: you're given half a million bucks and a choice. do you a) keep them (no downsides / gotchas), or b) burn every last dollar KLF-style in public with no interruptions?

by Ikoe; ; Report

Take the money and immediately
1. Pay off my parents debts
2. Put the rest in an investment account with gains being split between reinvestment, small payouts to me, the internet archive, riseup.net, thefire.org, the EFF, and maybe the ACLU.

sleepy spirit, you say. does that mean you are afflicted with excess sleepiness, or you cause sleepiness unto others?

Report Comment



mainly the former, occasionally the latter. sometimes the excess sleepiness just, er, projects itself unto others. it's a pretty lame curse

by Ikoe; ; Report

i fully concur. i am currently facing the same curse and it is quite....... annoying, to say the least.

i find that drinking three or four instant coffee packets' worth in a single mug makes for a relatively good repellant. your guts'll probably hate you for it but who cares

by Ikoe; ; Report

though a good beverage full of caffeine may indeed wake me for a moment, unfortunately, it quickly wears off and i crash even harder..... worked great in highschool when i just needed 30 more minutes to finish up what i was working on before i go to bed.... now, i don't even have the energy to get out of bed :/

You have a favorite poem?

Report Comment



a handful and then some of favorite lines and sentences, but poems specifically are a tougher category since my fleabrain never dug too deep into "proper literature" (this is also a good a time as any to throw out some recs if you have 'em). for what it's worth, though - despite the fact that it's admittedly pretty simplistic and requires some level of context anyhow - bob beamon's poem from ~'68 touched something in me. can't explain why.


would strongly recommend reading up on the guy, btw; his world-record long jump tale is incredible stuff

by Ikoe; ; Report

Damn that hits hard. I've also never really been into just reading through poetry, but I've found a few over time that I like. I really like the red wheelbarrow for the fact that I didn't really appreciate it the first time I saw it, but later came to appreciate what is stood for. So I guess my personal experience with the poem is more meaningful than the poem is to me, but either way it gets to be my favorite because of that. Also I'd like to read pale fire in it's entirety someday because I've read snippets and enjoyed it, but it feels like I'd need a week and a study guide to enjoy that one properly.

by Fawkes; ; Report

"He never felt cold in his life until just recently."


shorter than expected, but i can see why you greatly appreciate it, though i won't pretend like it didn't take an entire wiki page to hit properly. as for pale fire; it's eluded me for, uh, ever - one of those things i've heard about in the form of praise every once in a while in passing, but never got around to checking out.


(and frankly the odds are high that i won't because "999-line poem in four cantos")

Kinda sounds like we had similar red wheelbarrow experiences.

What would you say is your favorite era of media? Can be as vague as a century and specific as a window of a few years.

Report Comment



had me wracking my brain for a good while. at gunpoint, i'd say mid '70s to late '90s, albeit specifically for music, tech, and film. on the flip side, most of the vidya i've really enjoyed came out between the late '90s to early '10s.

You have the video game taste I wish I had.

Report Comment



if there's anything i learned, it'd be that it's never too late to get hooked on high-brow japanese ludokino that occasionally makes you feel dumb because uhhhh reasons


unless you're referring to something else, in which case it's probably not too late to get hooked on that either

by Ikoe; ; Report

I am very extroverted and antsy, so I have a hard time sitting down, getting into the zone, and playing through a singleplayer game when it takes so much less effort for me to sit in a vc and play a shooter while talking to people. It sucks because I know that once I get into that zone that I can enjoy nice and long singleplayer experiences, like when I put forty hours into prey over like four days.

by Fawkes; ; Report

under normal circumstances, i'd be grumpy and judgmental, but recently i've gotten into the rut of firing up something less-than-complicated like an RTS or friggin' solitaire and ceasing all mental activity for like an hour or two straight so i get it. i'd still highly recommend taking like a day off over the weekend to try and get into that zone, though!
