    About Me

    Do you prefer to watch anime, or would you rather read the manga? Which ones have captured your fancy the most?

    What is your favorite type of video game? RPG? MMO? Shooter?

    Why Bowie?

    IMPORTANT: We're hitting a point where the DBRJ is having more applicants than spots; I'll do my best to make sure everyone gets a shot. Normally, if a person is in the week's entry, I will leave a VM directly linking them to the entry when it's published. If you would like me to leave a VM each week even if you aren't in the week's entry, let me know and I'll add you to a list I'm making which will notify you each week when a new DBRJ is published.

    Oh damn why so many great entries this week help me

    Klippy gets my first vote obviously. I'm really enjoying that new Foals album, and I know they're a band that have had a good track record with very solid albums I think that What Went Down has what I think is some of their best material in years.

    The other entries besides Matt's were extremely hard to pick out of here, and while Gimme came close to nabbing my second vote with that San Cisco track (don't get me wrong, they are a great Aussie band) I am giving it to Detox. I really loved the sounds from The Internet's new album Ego Death and that track was definitely a highlight of it.

    Anyways, it's cool to see more people taking part so now to look forward if next week will be any more hard to pick.

    Summer Reading Uhhh

    I can totally relate how school ruins reading. I used to read a lot too, until school forced me to read books that were totally not in line with my interest and way too much of them. Once that was over last year it was hard to get back into reading again. Luckily one of my friends had been forcing me to read some awesome series for two years, so I didn't really have much choice when I got the time.

    I only know one book on your list there. I experienced The Hobbit as a great book, it's really easy to read, like a slightly more advanced fairy tale.

    I'm yet to hear it in its entirety, but so far I am definitely loving the new album. It really does seem to be their strongest yet, which is impressive since their first too were pretty damn good to begin with.

Not many people are defending the community. #Gamergate, to them, is an evil group of bigots.

    Nowadays, you have to dot your i's because if you don't, someone will find a way to antagonize you for your &quot;mistake&quot;.
    That's exactly how I feel. It's really unfair. We'll keep working to achieve our goals, though. We have no other choice.

    imo it was rotten from the start. If it was really about corrupt journalism, I truly don't understand why people still clung to the name once it became "clear" to just about everyone that it was about running women out of video game spaces. (Whether it was or not, that's how it appeared to literally everyone who didn't jump on the movement. So it just seems ridiculous that anyone would stick with the poison name/movement instead of making something new to accomplish the goals of... uncorrupting journalism?)

    To me, the "fringe" of gg always seemed like the people who were genuinely in it for the sole purpose of... whatever you listed, not the other way around. So it's not surprising to me that it would be reported this way in the general media. :/
    Go to the forums where we're talking about things, listen to the discussions we're having. SPJ Airplay was just last week, it was several days of discussions about what we think is wrong and how we think it should be fixed and it was open to both sides because we don't like excluding people from the conversation (the converse cannot be said to be true). Look on YouTube, look up videos posted by people from our movement, look at what they're discussing, listen to their podcasts. I'll tell you what they're not discussing: they're not discussing how to drive women out of the games industry. I know because I listen to these conversations all the time. What they (and we) are discussing is bad journalism and a desire to maintain creative and political freedom and independence in our hobby. These people you're talking about who attack women? They're your typical trolls and idiots who pop in wherever they can cause damage to say rude things. They're not producing content, they're not driving the discussion. They're not a part of our community or our movement to any significant degree, they're just there to stir up trouble. And they're a vast, vast minority. They also exist in the anti-gamergate movement (I would say they're even more common there), but we don't paint that movement as being one of hateful sexists who want to marginalize men in the industry, even if some of them are exactly that. Honestly, I think most anti-gamergaters are ignorant of what we're about and the discussions we're having on our side. They're listening to what our critics say about us rather than what we're actually saying.

    At worst, I'll admit that many of the people in our movement are antisocial. They don't know how to convey their intentions without sounding too severe and they'll often say things that aren't socially acceptable. That's because we're a movement full of people who are socially awkward and don't get out much. But not being able to express yourself clearly or saying something in a tactless manner doesn't mean you're a bad person and it doesn't make you wrong.

    For instance... find a single example of trying to drive women out of the industry in this video.
