You know, it’s been just over two weeks since I posted that open challenge to the whoever it was that kept on harassing me with petty insults, including calling me a little girl and saying I was scared, to send me an e-mail through, an address this person claimed to own themselves, but actually did not, prompting me to register it myself. The proposition seemed pretty fair and interesting for all parties involved so that we could get a dialog going and finally air all of our grievances in a productive manner. All I really asked for was this person to tell me who they were and why they hated me so much (two points they had completely failed to provide, along with what exactly they were trying to accomplish) , just so I would the benefit of actually putting a name to the idiocy. Otherwise the perpetrator in question was pretty much free to say whatever it was they felt like saying.

Now, maybe I’m biased but I look at this chance I’m giving and I see some pretty juicy stuff here! How many other webmasters would openly invite detractors to say whatever terrible things they wanted to say in such a blunt, unfiltered manner that went straight to the source? And not to mention make it as simple as possible to do so? One would think that someone who thinks I suck and likes to say that I am scared would be chomping at the bit to capitalize on such a direct line of attack presented to them!

And so, after two weeks, just how many e-mails were sent to

None. Not a single one.

Well, that’s not entirely true. There was one… from “Hotmail Staff“, telling me to “Experience the big difference with Windows Live Mail Beta” Now, I would never, ever, do such a terrible thing, but that doesn’t sound very insulting, so the point stands. Disappointing, but given the kind of people we’re dealing with here, not entirely surprising.

Well, who is scared now? I guess this is the part where I would make chicken noises in the general direction of anybody who doesn’t like what I do and only wants to tell me about it by flinging juvenile insults through a veil of anonymity. Well, far be it for me to be above doing that! So, then…

Bucka bucka bucka bucka!


The other day I was in the local Toys R Us, checking things out as I usually do. There were these 3 guys there looking at the Transformers. I could tell that they were about sixteen years old because one of them mentioned that he was 6 when Beast Wars came out. These guys were really loud and obnoxious, as 16 year olds often tend to be when in a plural form. They were talking about how Transformers suck now, though it became woefully apparent that they haven’t had any exposure to Transformers at all in the past few years.

They were saying things like how Beast Wars was so much better than the new “car Transformers“, and calling the new series “the square ones” (!?). All of this despite two very glaringly obvious points. First, that the new series had beast characters, several of which were hanging on the pegs directly in front of them (neither of them being at all “square” in shape), and second, that the Beast Wars 10th Anniversary toys were just below were they were looking and they had no bloody idea.

I observed for awhile, morbidly intrigued by this train-wreck of a conversation, until one of them finally noticed that reissued versions of the Beast Wars toys they were talking about were right under their noses. Of course, this lead the conversation directly into how these figures were bigger and better when they were kids. For crying out loud. Once they figured out that these toys were released for the 10th Anniversary, they could not believe that it had been so long, and assumed that this had to mean the very original Transformers from back when they were first born. Right. The concept of time must be a very tricky thing for kids nowadays.

It took some composure on my part not to step in and set these guys straight, because it really seemed like they barely knew right from left at this point, but nothing would be gained from that. I was wearing my Decepticon hat at the time, and I’m positive that at least one of them noticed, but I shouldn’t be surprised that they didn’t ask me about anything. Let’s just not let the facts stand in the way of superior teenaged ignorance while hanging out at the mall, huh?

The really funny thing is that when I was 16 years old, the new Transformers were Beast Wars! People just like these clowns were saying that Beast Wars sucked and the old ones, the “car Transformers“, were so much better. Not me though! I was all over the new stuff, and I still am today.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Well, like I assume everyone else is has been doing this week, I’ve been immersing myself in the news coming out of the Electronic Entertainment Expo. These are going to be very exciting times. IGN seems to be as good of a source as any for all the latest.

The Playstation 3 coming in at $600 is just bloody ridiculous. What on Earth are they thinking? I can’t ever see myself justifying that purchase at that price. With games and an extra controller to buy, that’s an incredibly hefty investment. And speaking of controller, what the hell do they think they are doing trying to rip off Nintendo with their tacked on tilt functionality? Talk about guts. Did they honestly think people wouldn’t notice what they are doing with that? The whole thing just screams of being a knee jerk reaction to Nintendo’s controller. If they are so confident that people will pay all that money for their system, then why do they seem so afraid that they have to try and copy their competitor’s idea? It really makes Sony look bad, especially after they dismissed such technology as a simple gimmick, but I guess this sort of thing is to be expected from a company that doesn’t seem to have a single original thought of its own.

The Nintendo Wii looks like fun. I didn’t care much for the name at first, but I’ve quickly gotten used to it. I’m pretty much in complete agreement with Nintendo’s assessment of the current state of video gaming. Something disruptive needs to happen, and I think that this system is just the ticket to making a lot of people have fun again. I want one. I don’t know if I’ll do the whole “line up at Midnight on Launch day” thing, but I’m not going to rule that out either!

I think the biggest news, though, is the new Super Smash Bros. It was looking as if they were not going to show anything regarding this game, but then it suddenly came without warning. The preview video is amazing! The graphics look awesome, the music is epic, and I’m sure the game will be a blast. The new characters look great too. Metaknight is super cool and a character I’ve wanted in the series for awhile. Pit is a welcome addition. Zero-Suit Samus is a hottie. Wario is finally confirmed. But then it just takes a dip into the surreal.

Snake is in this game? Snake from Metal Gear Solid? I still can’t believe it! This just blows the roof off of any and all possibilities! Non-Nintendo characters are going to be in the next Smash Bros, fighting right along with Mario, Link, Kirby, and the rest. If Snake is in it, then who else could there be? Pac-man? Sonic the Hedgehog? Mega Man? Viewtiful Joe? Bomberman? Simon Belmont? BATMAN? Well, probably not Batman, but you get the idea. The mind boggles at the potential this game could have. I can’t wait.

What are you excited about at E3? Who do you want to see in the next Smash Bros.? Talk about it.

I suck? OH NO!

Yesterday I suddenly got a huge backlog of 40 or so e-mails that hadn’t been sent to me on time for some reason, dating as far back to a few weeks ago. I don’t know why this happened, but it’s no big loss. Most of them were spam trying to sell me drugs, porn, and gambling, none of which I am at all interested in. But there were two that originated from my Guestbook that were pretty funny!

First came this charming entry. My, does it not paint such an interesting picture of the person who wrote it?

Why do you keep deleting my comments? Are you scared, you little girl? Do you only make fun of those below you, and are afraid of higher ups (like myself)? Go kill yourself, you moronic 34 year old virgin. Your art sucks too. And until you reply to me, I’m going to keep on doing this.
And next came this. Keep in mind that I only just got the both of these together, so I didn’t even have a chance to respond at the time.
Why do you keep ignoring me? Hahaha. Have you lost your edge? Can’t find any insults for me? WAHAHAHAHA. I laugh at you.
Well, first of all, I want to sincerely apologize (ha ha) for not saying anything about this until now. Obviously, you are upset because you hold my opinion is such high regard! Like I said above, I didn’t see these comments until yesterday. Of course, it doesn’t make much of a difference because you are just a jackass troll looking for attention and I probably wouldn’t have paid you any mind at the time. So if you’ve been coming here to make fun of me just so you could see what I have to say about it, well then I’m sorry but I’m not under any sort of obligation to say or do anything for anyone. But, hey, it’s your lucky day, because here I am looking for something to write about, and there you are being an idiot. Since this is so enlightening to everyone involved, I’ll grant your wish this time.

Now, let’s be honest here. Both of these messages came in completely anonymously. So, what exactly am I suppose to do about it? Get all upset over how somebody I don’t even know who won’t tell me who they are doesn’t like me and won’t tell me why? Oh, boo hoo! Come on now, get real. Unless you are willing to tell me who you are, I really don’t care if you think my artwork sucks or that I’m a little girl or what have you. It means very little to me.

I mean, let’s face it. There is more than one person out there who thinks I suck. Now unless you all tell me who you are, how in the hell am I supposed to know who’s who? My website is set up so that people can leave anonymous feedback if they so choose, which is fine, because should that feedback be a bunch of juvenile insults then I can laugh and ignore it if I so choose. But if you’re going out of your way to make some sort of statement, and only God knows just what the hell you are trying to prove because I sure don’t, could you at least tell me who you are? Put on a name tag or something! You want me to reply so badly, and you taunt me as if I am scared, but you don’t even have the guts to tell me who you are and why you seem to hate me so much!

What are you afraid of? What is the worst that I could possibly do in retaliation if I knew who you were? I’m a busy man. I’m happy to spend the time writing about this in my weblog because, quite frankly, I’m amused by it and I think other people reading this will be entertained by how much of a moron you are. But otherwise I just don’t seem to have the time that you and people like you seem to enjoy spending in your quest to tell me that I suck. I have better things to do than hunt you down and get revenge. I’m not going to destroy your computer with my Internet powers or get the cops to take you away or anything like that. All I would ever do is completely obliterate you in a battle of wits, just like I’ve done to everyone else. You are otherwise completely safe, so stop being such a bloody coward.

As far as deleting your comments goes, I haven’t deleted anything. It doesn’t work like that. If I don’t want you comments to be there, then they just won’t be there! No deletion necessary because they wouldn’t be there to delete in the first place. Now look, you ask me why I keep deleting *your* comments, but because you don’t leave a proper name and e-mail address, I don’t know who you are, and so I don’t know what comments you are talking about! Don’t be so bloody arrogant to think that you are the only wanker out there who hates me! I have no problem with comments from people who don’t like me. That’s fine. Most of them are funny. But you, coming back again and again (to a website you run by a guy who claim to not even like, no less) just to see if you have made your mark, that’s not funny. That’s pretty sad.

Ah, on second thought, it’s still pretty funny. But I’m twisted like that.

Next, I know that your e-mail address isn’t really like you entered. I know this because, well, that’s my e-mail address now! I just opened up that account, and I’ve got a great idea for what we can do with it. You can just go right ahead and pick whichever of your real, valid, working e-mail addresses that you may happen to be in possession of, and you send whatever spiteful nonsense that happens to tickle your fancy at the moment right on over to I can’t possibly make it any easier than that. Oh, wait, yes I can. I’ll write that link again.! There. Just click that link and let ‘er rip! But, please, while you are telling me how much my artwork sucks and how I’m 34 years old and how I’m a girl or whatever other garbage you have to say, you could at least afford me a little bit of context to work within and tell me who you are, why you hate me so much, and what exactly you hope to accomplish my telling me this. I really want to know, so that this information may enrich my life!

I’m not going to listen to, respond to, or acknowledge anything hateful you or anyone else has to say right now unless it is sent to So stay off the guestbook and the contact form and everything else, because you don’t need it anymore. You said that you would keep attacking me until I replied. Well, now I have replied, and everyone has read this and everyone knows how pathetic you are for saying that. I seriously, seriously doubt that you have what it takes to make a difference. I seriously doubt that there is anything you could possibly say that would make me realize what you think is true or change my mind about anything in any way, shape, or form. But I invite you to try and prove me wrong through Remember, that’s! Just click on it and let’s talk about this! It’s so convenient, you have no excuse not to do it!

Oh, and by the way… umm… let’s see here… you’re a dumb piece of crap and your mother is a ho. There, that should motivate you!! I’ll be waiting!
