  • hey, wasn't really sure about doing this because i can understand never wanting to hear from me again, but i am very genuinely sorry for what i did eight years ago. and i'm also sorry for dragging up old memories; don't know how this is going to be received, maybe it would've been better just to let it drift away and be forgotten about, but i don't think i ever actually directly apologized. which is some bare minimum shit. you deserve that. if there's anything productive i can do now to make amends, i will absolutely try my best. i hope things are going well for you these days (despite the plague)

    I’m pretty sure that feature was removed for whatever reason... these Discord invites are too short, so what I’m actually gonna do is ask you to add me at JunpeiAceDetectv#2924, then I’ll have a more immediate way of sending you the invite once I get another one. Sorry, I swear I’m not an e-mail scammer. x)

    That’s a shocker! I sometimes wonder if I’m going to mellow out and drift away from the metal, but it’s often the only form of stress relief I have, so certainly not for now. I’ll listen to Zeal & Ardor at some point soon, to see what you’re talking about! We have a music bot in the server, maybe I’ll put them on during one of our game nights. ;p

    all right, added! (as far as i know; the only thing i've ever used discord for before is a gorillaz release rumors server, so i'm going to hope i'm doing this correctly.)

    i think i essentially grew out of it myself because i was associating it with the worst part of my life, mental health-wise, and because forcing myself to base my identity around it was preventing me from figuring out who i actually was. there's a difference between sincerely appreciating something and, like, self-flagellating because you're severely depressed and worried it's the only community you'll ever find, and i was definitely deep in the latter. "it's important to listen to the things that genuinely make you feel better" is probably a solid underlying point here. or things with Extreme Satan, like zeal & ardor, and i agree that you should absolutely get that playing in front of as many people as possible

    If you are “revelator”, then yep, you did it correctly! My avatar is a cute Picrew, so if you see that, it’s me.

    Aw man, I didn’t get the impression back then that you were forcing yourself to be a “metalhead”. :( But then, I didn’t get very many impressions of anything back then. If you just stick to music you like now, that’s awesome, I’ve found tons of metal that’s been my happy place in the past however many years.

    Anyway, I’m trying to pick the most dramatic time and place for you to pop your head into the Pit Stop and surprise everyone, so hopefully we can do that sometime this week. Again, really hope you’re doing well these days! :)
    Thank you very much for liking my post in names the trainers that you never want to lose to them and glad for that. Really glad and thank you very much. Hope you like this post answer it and answer the post that you already liked it in that thread

    Hey, thanks for the tips on those games! I just checked Amazon for TWEWY and for a new copy, $18 and change is not bad at all. I actually prefer buying used cib games on Ebay bc it's usually cheaper. I'll let you know if I buy any of them!

    I'd like to shop on the SE store but I don't have a credit card or a PayPal (working on getting a PayPal, no desire to ever get a credit card xO≈). As much as people like to rag on SE, they ask very reasonable prices for their products, you're practically stealing from them! So apparently Amazon has been slowly raising the free shipping minimum for everybody? When I registered it was $35, I thought that was a steal but you're telling me it used to be lower than that!?!? Eh, I'm just glad it's not what I was thinking, like Amazon decided to raise my minimum individually because I've spent so much money in the ~1 year that I've had my account. That would've been pretty shady. (doesn't mean it isn't shady to not automatically select free shipping I WANT A REIMBURSEMENT I WILL SUE! >_<)

    Paypal is easy to set up! You can even load your account if you buy a Paypal card from a store's gift card section, but there's a $3.50 fee each time (which isn't that bad if you want to avoid credit card hassles.) I feel like they raised it bc other popular free shipping sites have a $49 min so Amazon wanted to make more money themselves x'D It's not all that bad if you get a free Prime trial and you pre-order games! 20% discount!!
    Cap'n Jack
    Cap'n Jack
    Well shoot, PayPal cards sound right up my alley until I get my hands on a proper bank account. I tried getting that free trial of Prime, but I needed a debit card if not credit, and obviously I don't have a debit card yet because I haven't set up a bank account yet. It was the perfect time to get a discount on preorders because I was preordering Zero Time Dilemma and Persona 5, but whatever, I don't mind paying full price for what will surely be good games. If you can't tell, basically at this point in my life there's a ton of grown-up stuff I have to get set up but I haven't due to laziness combined with a fear of the unknown. v_v;
    Thank you so much! :)

    I just can't understand people who feel like that about themselves and it makes me seriously uncomfortable, because it requires me to change the language I use for reasons that I don't honestly believe. Have you ever thought that a lot of problems people face are the result of semantics being blown out of proportion? As insensitive as it may seem, that's how I see it, but of course it's like I said, I can't possibly understand what it's like without going through the same identity crisis myself. What I'm saying, though, is I can't help but think that that sort of an identity crisis is unnecessary and avoidable. That's my honest belief, as much as hypersensitive nitwits (even here on Bulba) have given me flak for that mind set.

    I'm surprised you even remembered that user name! I think I might have adopted this avatar while I still had it. I don't know where I got the idea to keep the same avatar for as long as possible, but it's going on five years now. Jeezaloo!

    I see where you're coming from 100% and I have to agree with you for the most part. Many of the problems in my life have occurred as a result of me blowing things out of proportion. And I can't understand what they're going through because I don't think that way about myself. But just because I'm not like them doesn't mean I can't appreciate their choices and stuff.

    Haha, I have a decent memory when it comes to that stuff. My brain stores a ton of just purely useless details.

    I'm glad you're able to see that a lack of understanding doesn't equal animosity. Some people don't realize that, though... "transphobe" this, "white cis male scum" that... that whole attitude ("Third Wave Feminism" or whatever you wanna call it) is one of the things that bothers me the most in the world right now. Like I said, I think it stems from people taking putting too much value in the imaginary set of rules we call language, and that's what makes it really petty. I'm starting to go a little bit off-the-rails, but I think you see where I'm coming from.

    Dude, I can remember the color of my amine waifu's eyes but I've forgotten what my name is before! Apparently I've been like this all my life, because I remember when I was a kid, my mom wrote a note to one of my teachers telling them to bear with me because I had "absent-minded professor syndrome". I still laugh at that memory.
    words did indeed happen :O

    Not everything is saved, but quite a lot of it is. I was surprised I found as much as I did, with millions of posts and all.

    You could do that, or buck tradition and find a completely new avatar. It's your choice, I'll leave you to your existential crisis of tradition vs. progress : D
    Hey Jack, guess what I found? :V

    Part 2

    Yeah, I've seen a lot of criticism for both Birdman and Boyhood regarding the style over substance thing. I did enjoy Boyhood and found parts of it really touching, but the second half of the film seemed to stretch on a bit too much for my liking. It didn't help that I found Mason vaguely annoying as a teenager (that rant about technology...come on). I'm glad I saw it and I think it's a film everyone should see once, but when it comes to films with naturalistic dialogue, I think I prefer Linklater's Before trilogy. This surprises even me actually; I thought it'd be the other way around.

    I snorted out loud at "nobody is allowed to talk about legalizing weed," hahaha. I'm taking a directors class (we're studying Hitchcock, Fellini, Spielberg, and del Toro) and there's an assignment where you can write about an auteur of your choosing. Apparently they banned everyone from picking Tim Burton in last year's class because he had a history of being too popular of a topic. Weird, I thought it would have been Wes Anderson.

    Aw :3 I think I read that when you posted it elsewhere on the forums, or something. Which Pokémon are they, exactly?
    (Now you know my pain, lol.)

    It's just another word for discussion or analysis of a work's themes or characterization, or often more minor details (for example, why Hermione was sorted in Gryffindor and not Ravenclaw), from what I understand.

    I'm the same way when it comes to making friends. You're lucky that you have all your friends from high school with you :p I only have three, and all of them have a 90+ minute long commute to campus, so they're not always around to hang out on weekends. If I have one piece of advice, it's to try and make friends within your program. It seems like a given, but I didn't really do this last year and none of my close friends share either of my majors. Last-minute panicking over essays is much less painful when you have a friend panicking with you.

    Hah, don't worry, lots of people are in the same boat. I'm trying to combat this by doing most of my work on campus. Whenever I get home and change into my pyjamas I automatically lose all motivation to do any work.

    Sounds intriguing, I'll be sure to check it out. I did go to the library but apparently you have to talk to someone to enter the media commons area and I was feeling too shy at the time x_x Lol. I'll get around to it. I've seen Citizen Kane and Superbad. Knowing of Citizen Kane's reputation made me brace myself for disappointment, but I actually enjoyed it? Like, I anticipated that it would be really dry and slow for modern tastes, but I actually found it pretty compelling. And that was before I learned about its technical mastery when I saw it again in film class. Superbad was pretty good, I like how it starts off raunchy but ends on a heartfelt note. What are the other films like?
    Part 2

    Haha, your review was spot-on. When I watched it, I was really caught up in all the fiery speeches, the cinematography (this shot - swoon), the sizzling score -- but months later, I'm still confused as to whether all of it actually adds up to anything. I just find it utterly confounding. Is it condemning low art (which it seems to equate with superhero films and other blockbusters)? Is it condemning so-called high art (which Emma Stone's speech seems to be doing)? Is it saying that some of the "high art" out there is really just flashy, meaningless style-over-substance silliness? (Which the success of Riggan's play seems to imply.) If so, is there a meta component to this, seeing as real life critics (a minority, but a vocal one) have blasted Birdman for the same thing? Is it condemning critics? People like Riggan? Technology? And what to make of the ending? To put it crudely, I can't tell whether it's a fake deep film masquerading as a real deep one or the other way around. González Iñárritu must be either a genius, a pretentious hack, or the greatest troll ever. Maybe all three. I truly can't tell. In any case, I'm glad I watched it.

    Oh yeah, for sure. What do you do in your Speech Com class?

    EV training has gotten a LOT easier in Generation VI, so if you ever want to start, now is a great time (by easier I literally mean about 5 minutes for each stat). It really does make a noticeable difference. IVs, on the other hand...well, IV breeding has also gotten a lot easier, but I understand if players don't wanna get into that, it's a bit trickier to grasp. Myself, I have never understood RNG abuse. Which Pokémon have you been using lately?
    (I had a whole message typed out and then accidentally refreshed the page. *collapses* Okay, let's do this again.)

    Here's the "harry potter meta" tag on tumblr for a general idea.

    I can't drive either, haha. Yet my 17 year old sister can...I should probably get on that. I feel you on the social life thing; during my first year I did make a few new friends, but mostly I just hung out with people I knew from high school. I think it'll be easier this year though now that my classes are smaller. And 3 AM? :p Psh, try 6 or 7 AM (actually, please don't). That's good though, you'll thank yourself once it starts getting really busy.

    We didn't have that exactly, but I took AP classes which are kind of similar, I guess? I had half-credit for an English course by the time I graduated. And a human geography credit, but it turned out that my university doesn't recognize/accept those x_x Should have looked that up beforehand. I found that there were fewer things on my plate at any one time during my first year than in high school, but that the expectations for each assignment were a lot higher. Or maybe I only thought that because I half-assed so many things in high school.

    Oh shit, it didn't even occur to me to check out my school's libraries for movies! Thanks. Neon Genesis Evangelion is something that's been on my ever-growing watchlist for a while. Anything weird and psychological and only 26 episodes long is going to pique my interest.
    Part 2

    I know exactly what you mean. I find it a really interesting topic, actually; I should go out and seek essays on this sort of thing.

    Oh yeah, I definitely felt that creep up on me during my playthroughs of Y and Omega Ruby. Don't get me wrong, I still think they're fantastic on a technical level in many ways (Omega Ruby especially) but I've become more aware of how often I spend the game just grinding and moving from location to location in a linear pattern. Now that I'm older my focus has shifted to the updated game mechanics. The Battle Maison is a lot of fun (I'm still ridiculously pissed that the Battle Frontier wasn't included in ORAS though) and even though I hear some people say that thinking about EVs and IVs and all that stuff makes your Pokémon feel like tools, I've actually experienced the opposite and gained a new appreciation for my pokes.
