General Chat and Discussion / Re: IRL v.s. Digital You
« on: October 17, 2008, 06:24:36 AM »
I wonder, for those who have met me IRL, when I speak online, do you imagine my real voice/self saying it? Or is it text on a page, like anyone else.

Actually, whenever I say Motoko-chan in my head, I hear it in your voice. That's like the only thing.

I'm also curious about how e-penises factor in to digital persona. Those of you who have administrative/staff-like positions somewhere on the net, has Status changed your digital persona at all? When I was younger, something like my first OP/hOP in a channel certainly had an effect. Eventually I grew to write the same regardless of where I am or what status I have on the internet.

Ask directly why don't ya? ; ) I think the status has just amplified what I was previously. Was I bossy, perverted and all that fun stuff that I am before Dynasty? Yes. but once I went up in rank and people started to obey me, it was massive ego inflation. Now my real self is a lot more cocky, and anywhere else I go on the net is just a dimmed down version of how I am on IRC.

When I was much younger and on the internet, my two personalities of online and real life were polar opposites. Out going and quite vocal online, yet timid and quiet in real life. Over the last few years though, I've been moving towards syncing up with my online persona, which is something I'm quite proud of and enjoy, even marvel at. Not to mention that it's pretty much who I really am. I'm no where near that stage yet though, and people still find the two personalities very different.

Of course, I try and work at it all the time, even with the existing friends I have who mostly expect me to be a quiet addition to the evening's activities (drinking).

What usually holds me back is the idea that online and real life are different systems. You can be quite flirtatious and perverted online without as much consequence or ill-standing with whoever you're doing it to as you would in real life, because online is much safer and there's no threat of actual contact. You can do all that and still be considered many other qualities that would overshadow your more risque behavior.

Trying to do that in real life though, your actions will stay with you much longer and be your definition. Something people are less willing to accept in real life I find. What ever other redeeming qualities you have about yourself would be pretty much ignored.

But that's just what I think of course ;\

I used to follow that on Teletoon! definitely nostalgia.

And then I watched the sub and wondered why I ever liked dubs.

Because we were young, silly and didn't know any better. At least I was.

I don't think even showing the corpse will stop them from bring back Shirley.

Suddenly, a Geass that revives the dead!

I suspect it's all been spilled in some magazine or such? I dunno, episode titles and simple summaries are on wiki for the next couple of episodes and what I guess is the season finale.

One of the most satisfying moments I had ever felt. I thought it was massive amounts of entertainment. And cute CC is cute ; )

Anime & Manga / Re: What do you think of scanlations & fansubs?
« on: July 25, 2008, 02:59:51 PM »
I certainly agree on those points especially with Tokyopop (Grrr, Kino novels). I try to buy as much manga as I can afford and like. Mainly it's the stuff by Seven Seas they licensed that we originally scanlated. I find the quality to be on the better side of things. Infinity Studios did an amazing job on Iono the Fanatics, with nice glossy quality paper and a dustcover with the volume. It's too bad the chances of them releasing the second (and final) volume in print is dying with each passing day  :cry:

But for the most part, I'm happy to support a good company, but Tokyopop is not one I would support. (Licensed Bakuten? Pfft, forget them) I really don't think that the original authors will be made or broken by how their North American returns are.

I've always enjoyed xxxHOLiC more, mainly because of Yuuko and her stunning beauty.....or maybe it was just because of her? No, actually, I do enjoy the story and the supernatural/spiritual aspects of the HOLiC world as well as the other characters.

TRC was always good but it doesn't flow as well for me sometimes. Really beautiful art, but seems to interrupt the story sometimes.
