    Well children are not the only targets of my rage XD - I do also hate society for putting them on a pedestal and saying "these are the most important things ever" and I hate the glandular parenting instincts that cause that immediate priority shift the moment one sees his or her newborn child. But it is far easier to hate the children themselves as this happens simply by virtue of their existence... not to mention the fact that they are loud, obnoxious, annoying, sticky carriers of germs who seem to strive intentionally to be altogether unworthy of the pedestal upon which they are so smugly placed.

    And yes, that second article is the amazing latest one that I was talking about in my second VM - man that was fantastic beyond words XD. Though I must admit that after reading that chidren article it's hard to shake the feeling that no matter how amazing his writing still is, it is post-priority-shift and therefore he doesn't enjoy the work as much as he once did, instead preferring to spend time with his new baby because that is more important than any article he could ever write. It's the same way I feel about actresses who have children and then give interviews saying "acting used to be the most important thing to me in the world, but now I have a child and motherhood is so much more important, so I still like acting, but it's just a job - I'm far more interested in getting home to my little guy at the end of the day." While it doesn't seem to affect their performance in the film in the slightest, I can't help but wish they actually wanted to be there. I'd like the movie that is so important to me to be a little more important to the people who actually spend the time to make it.

    Though one could argue that in the case of Brooker, as the article about his newborn was posted on April 1st it was all one huge prank and thus utterly ignorable

    You could say that Brooker has been indirect inspiration to me as well in some of the things I've written, as I myself have tried to channel the spirit of Zero Punctuation and his lightning fast wit (to varying levels of success) without any knowledge of the fact that he was inspired by Brooker.

    Though - YOU SIR. Paragraph two and three of your VM. Oh my God. Just oh my God. If you do not become a writer I will personally come and smash your knees with a baseball bat so that you are forever in a wheelchair and have no choice but to write . Just amazing I don't even.

    LMAO at his next article though; his latest one. That one is pure gold.

    I simultaneously love and hate that article. I love it because the guy does seem to have his head in place and seems to still get that people hate talking about babies; he seems like a really cool guy. I hate it for the same reason I hate kids. It's not because they're loud and obnoxious and sticky and gross; those are just added irritations. I hate them for what they do to people - for what they turn them into, and more specifically, I hate them for exactly what that guy described:

    Then, after some furtive rustling, they lowered the drape just enough to let you clap eyes on a squealing, squirming creature which your brain doesn't quite believe is actually there in the room. And in this moment, your universe momentarily pauses while a fundamental shift in perspective takes place.

    Apologies for swearing in the presence of a child, but the first thing I thought was "**** me". Not just as an expression of surprise, but as a mission statement, as in: "**** me and what I want – from now on, my task is to protect you, whatever or whoever you are." Prior to the birth, other dads had warned me that "bonding" might not happen for weeks, even months. Also, I was worried I might simply feel nothing. Instead I felt reprogrammed, head-to-toe, in an instant. That was a shock.
    It's irreversible, and it's perverse to the extreme, and I don't understand how nobody else is as disturbed by it as I am. That guy is not a person anymore, and he'll never be a person again - because he had that change. Now he's a "father". He's a father first and a human being second and the mind-wiped way that he no longer minds - the fact that he was one of us, hating on parents beforehand, and now he's one of them and "gets it" as though through some form of soul-bending enlightenment - just makes me feel terrible for him. I would not wish that on my worst enemy.

    ................talking about this turns me oddly dark, doesn't it? XD. I'm not sure if I like the way this makes me sound, but I can't help how I feel haha.

    I'm sorry, the hatred runs deeper than exfoliation can erase, but I do love that turn of phrase!

    Oh. My. God. I read that poem just as I was falling asleep last night and I don't think I have laughed so much in a long time. Please tell me you're going to be a writer or something when you grow up because you sir, have a gift. You are more clever than I could ever hope to be Just... bahahahahahaha omg. Words cannot describe the majesty of that goddamn thing.


    But yeah, Felicia Day makes her premiere in the final season so you wouldn't have seen her . But yes, she is trapped in my avatar for now, but she doesn't mind. In fact, here she is to sing you a song about it!

    I don't know how you imagine male-on-male affairs, but 'tender' is never a word that can be used in their description. You can be as poetic as you like, but poetry does not explain why you're walking funny

    I guessed about the walrus light show because that's literally the only explanation! How did you ever come across such a job?!

    You, sir, are a terrible Buffy fan if you do not know the name of the woman trapped in my avatar! TERRIBLE! You are an elder in the Church of Rowling, Whedon and Jolie!

    and lmao about my Tumblr - I'm trying to update it more often but I'm not having as many interactions with children as I thought

    You do realise the more you deny your relationship the more you hurt Bruce. He did nothing to deserve that (except for the few women he killed).

    And you operate the laser light machines for the walrus show at the zoo?!

    LOL I only just got this. I was here from when I said I would be; you were meant to look for me on Skype, not on PC! XD

    Also I just realised after we talked, you spent so long giving me that whole big speech about your stint in prison being Big Bruce's wife that you never actually told me what your new job IS.

    Well, I'll be the judge of whether your excuse is moderately good when I talk to you

    and I agree Skype is more appropriate, but you must come on Skype for this to be plausible! Our countries are now 9 hours apart so it means it's midnight there when I get up at 9am. There is no excuse for a 17 year old in the PRIME OF HIS LIFE not to be able to stay up til a bit after midnight however IF YOU ARE THAT OCTAGENARIAN-LIKE, I get home from work tonight at a bit after 9pm and I go to bed at around 1:30-2. For you this is from midday to 4:30-5

    and oooo job! Do you get paid for this one?

    DUDE. APRIL 9TH. APRIL 9TH WAS OUR LAST VM AND NOW IT IS APRIL 19TH. You better have a very good excuse, that's all I'm saying!!!

    I remember you... but only just. I am awake now however :D

    Tell me of this Harry Potter fight!

    I replied to you within five minutes, how even?! D:

    It was 3:54 AM when you sent that VM, there was not a chance of me waking up! BUT NOW I AM HERE SO SKYPE NAO!

    And I actually don't know why we get presents for Easter haha - it's actually weird, it's sort of like it's become a mini-Christmas with chocolates lol.

    You sir, are beautiful. I want to pat your orange fur and give you a huge hug. But the hug thing is no different from normal I do still want to see an actual picture of you though, especially if you look like Darren Criss.

    And yes every mod gets one if they want one XD - I thought McGonagall was appropriate considering my undying love for her haha (holy **** it's nearly been a year since the last film came out, that terrifies me beyond belief). AND TELL GINA TO STAY SO SHE CAN DESERVE SOME EMBLEMS. It's a chicken or egg situation there! Which is oddly appropriate because it's Easter today!

    The... Joe... to your Darren? I don't understand that reference D: I feel like a bad Glee fan or something haha. WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!

    And bwahahahahaha... see, now you think about sex all the time too. It is life, after all!

    Omg I got so many VMs last night for various reasons that I forgot to reply to my favourite one! D:

    I'll buy my phone a new cover - the one it has is worn out and chipped and horrible so it deserves a treat XD

    I'm glad you like your emblems!!!! The gem one is the one you get for being an awesome new member and I am probably long overdue in giving it to you and the other one is my own personal ego emblem that I can just give out to the people I like XD.

    LMAO. I just looked up The Lorax and I'm trying to imagine Darren Criss with a dash of him thrown in. Though dude, if you look even a little bit like Darren Criss, I honestly don't understand how you could ever have thought your girlfriend was out of your league. You are the league.

    And I feel like I missed something haha - why did that gif remind you of me? xD - not that I'm complaining, the guy is hot.

    LMFAO. This is what happens when you send a VM from a phone with autocorrect at 2:40 AM when you're so sleepy you just want to die. I'm not even sure what I was trying to say lmao. That "their" was actually meant to be a "but" so I have no idea what the hell happened there haha

    and d'awwwwwwww XD - you know, in my head I actually imagine you to look a little like Darren Criss. That's just the image my mind formed haha

    That sent twice because of my phone. Think yourself lucky that you get two for the price of one! Three really if you include this!

About Me

  • About Barrels
    I was born. Then I grew up. But that wasn’t fun, so I grew back down again and started catching Pokémon.

    Most people are decent - and the more friends you make, the better life gets. So if you'd like to say hi, go ahead and do that thing! ;)
    I like creating. Writing, drawing, vidding, programming… you name it, there’s a good chance I’ve failed abysmally at it. (Probably had fun though.)

    In general? Philosophising about stuff I’ll never know, reading Brian Michael Bendis, ordering things I have no need of from Amazon, arting around in Photoshop and watching old Munsters episodes. Not all at the same time.

    Snorlax. Since forever. I used to dream about getting a big ol’ Snorlax-shaped beanbag.

    …Who am I kidding? I *still* dream about that.
