On JE fannish things:
I am very, very much in love with Pi's Ai, Texas. I hadn't really paid attention to any of the promos because a) I admit the title made me suspect it might be a bit st00pid and b) the outfit he's wearing in performances made me suspect it might be a bit st00pid EVEN MORE. But people, I love this song. I love the melody -- I really want a word for these melodies that Pi sometimes has, because there's definitely a pattern, and normally it's in his love songs, where... I want to say 'ordinary', only not in a boring, everyday sense. You know, where love songs can be like OMG DRAMA OPERA I WILL DIE FOR YOU and then you have a melody that's more like 'yeah, I love you, now let's go and milk the cows'. This song is bouncier than Gomen Ne or Love Song, but it still does that, with the melody.

And I love the quirky drums on the chorus, and what his voice does on the bridge, and I just want to SQUISH THIS SONG.

Fannnish bitchiness:
I have been following the discussions on the Smallville fanfic archive moving to the AO3 with some interest, in various places. And, you know, I concede that it's a multi-faceted issue, and I really want to read those discussions in the spirit of openness to both sides. But then inevitably I come across the comment that goes, 'I uploaded my stories fifteen years ago and I moved fandoms since then and I changed my pseud and I don't even use that old e-mail address anymore and I haven't spared my fic in that archive a thought in the last fifteen years BUT NOW THE AO3 WANTS TO ARCHIVE IT THEY ARE EVIL EVIL EVIL. PS: yes I totally, consciously only wanted my fic archived for ~the natural lifespan of an archive~ when I put it up.' And I just end up wanting to mock people TO THEIR FACE for being special snowflake idiots.

*sigh* Fandom, always good for bringing out my impartial and dispassionate side.

On journal admin:
Inspired by [personal profile] solo, I've been wondering if I should try for 'a post a day' in March, too. They'd probably vary in substance, and IDEK. But I actually like DW/LJ being a bit livelier. (Well, in theory.)

No, lumping in two line posts about Pi being awesome with longer posts is inappropriate.

These snowflake idiots are probably the same people who think you should ask for permission before you link to their fic or discuss it anywhere. If they use their brains for a moment they'll realize that they can just orphan their works on AO3 (or, hey, simply delete them, duh)... but maybe the energy released by two brain cells unexpectedly colliding will make their fragile little heads explode.

Other useful topics:
- why Solo is almost as awesome as Yamapi
- Leberwurst, and why other regions are doin it rong

But for that they need to get an account at AO3 and with that they would support it, which they don't want.

ewwww Leberwurst.

@Jo please make a filter for Leberwurst. I don't want to be in that group. :D

They could always cancel the account again afterwards. (Yes, I know that they don't want that either.)

I'm glad that wasn't 'ewwww Solo'...

Pi roses and gold chains and sparkles and glitter and I like this song, that have very interesting lyrics, that tells that cute fluffy PI can be sooo emo. But he hides his emo fragile hearts with all this roses around his naked glittering skin.

All the snowflakes are melting, fandom is stupid sometimes and have no logic, but let's look from brightest side, if fandom has a logic that will be strange XDXDXDD

and yes, Unicorns XDXD

The title is...well, I'm just going to blame JE, as dodgy titles seem to be their stock in trade. But I like the song quite a bit! It makes me think of the Police, somewhat. I still need to have a proper listen, one that doesn't involve me getting sidetracked by Pi with glitter, fake tattoos, and suspenders. I don't know if this is his idea of what Texans wear but if so...what exactly happened on Route 66 that they didn't air???
