Friends Lock Notice :: Comment to Be Added

The about page that was here will be replaced eventually and this journal is now making use of custom friend groups to eliminate a small security issue with resource journals having the same access as friends to certain entries.

I am, however, fairly lax when it comes to adding new friends. This especially applies if we've been playing together (or otherwise having contact through IJ) for a while and communicating out of character to a degree that we've clearly hit it off as friends. So if you want to friend this journal, feel free. Just comment on this entry if you'd like to be added back, as I don't keep track of new additions on my profile.

Also, I tend to have mood issues which leave me overwhelmed and quiet sometimes. Please don't take it personally if I end up failing to maintain a conversation; it's nothing personal and doesn't mean I don't like you.

Pardon the Mess

Seeing so many things that are important to me be completely trashed by an ill-planned code push on DW which still hasn't been fixed or reverted has honestly made me rethink the use of that site altogether for cast lists etc. I have an extremely overwhelming mess of pages and even thread layouts and who even knows what else ahead to fix, and I just... can't be assed to do it. I've hit my capacity for stress (who hasn't this year, tbh) and I'm at the point where it's like why fucking bother when they'll probably just make another code push that wrecks things again in the near future. The idea is to move pages onto my own site, but I have so many other things to deal with in my life right now and my mental health can't handle even looking at the massive list of things destroyed by something so ridiculously unnecessary and inconsiderate.

I know this means basically nothing to anyone here, but I just needed to get that off my chest. And legit I'm so ashamed of how broken some things are that I needed a CYA type post to explain that, no, I'm not intentionally showing off things which look so bad now.

Retired Characters

Hey, look, I finally got around to fixing the old list and making it both complete and aesthetically pleasing! And it doesn't use tables like the old one, bless.

Tutorial: HTML Pages on IJ Accounts

When google-fu failed me and I decided I didn't want to trust Scribbld not to drop dead again, I poked around for a couple hours and figured out how to do things myself. Now, I'm sharing what I learned with everyone else... who may or may not have already figured this out. So, here's how to host HTML pages on insanejournal. This is for paid and permanent accounts only, because free accounts can't access advanced customization.

I can't believe I thought this was a good idea.

Lessons learned from trying to catch up on Riverdale S3: Archie is an idiot, Veronica's loyalties change every time the wind shifts directions, the writers don't even remember their own continuity within the span of a single episode, and there are infinitely better ways I could be spending my time.

I wish Roswell, New Mexico hadn't ended already. Disappointment of the S1 finale aside, I love the writing on that show and actually look forward to the next season.

I'm So Here for This!

Netflix confirmed that John Cho will take the main role as Spike Spiegel, the series' iconic lead bounty hunter. Cho is best known for the Harold and Kumar movies, as well as playing Sulu in the recent Star Trek films and starring in last year's acclaimed thriller Searching.

Cowboy Bebop will also star Mustafa Shakir, Daniella Pineda, and Alex Hassell. Shakir, who appeared in Season 2 of Luke Cage, will play Jet Black, a former cop and captain of the show's spaceship Bebop. Pineda (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) is set to appear as amnesiac bounty hunter Faye Valentine, while Hassell (the upcoming The Boys) is to play notorious hitman Vicious. Netflix says more casting news is still to come, including that of Radical Ed.

Alex Garcia Lopez (who has also worked on Netflix shows such as The Witcher and Marvel's Daredevil and The Punisher) is set to direct the first two episodes. The first of these will be written by Christopher Yost (Thor: Ragnarok). The show will consist of 10 episodes in total.

Netflix also confirmed a previous report that the director of the original series, Shinichiro Watanabe, is working on the new version as a consultant. Additionally, veterans of Sunrise Inc., the studio that made the anime, are executive producing. (source: gamespot)

No, I don't care that it's going to be Another Live Action Adaptation. No, I don't care that it's likely to be difficult to translate. I'm just over here being excited about this because Cowboy Bebop is basically my favourite thing ever - not to mention what got me into analyzing characters in fiction and roleplay. I've always wanted more without wanting to cheapen the end of the series with a future-dated spinoff, and this seems like it may be a nice compromise.

Also, I'm loving the casting choices, tbh. If there's one thing Netflix gets right with its adaptations, it's the casting. This may even be worth updating my Spike pb for when the time comes, depending how I feel about the costuming choices.
