16th-Aug-2008 12:47 am - a rant that really belongs at iconrants instead of here.
So I'm ranting about this in my own journal instead of [livejournal.com profile] iconrants because I know some of the people who have problems with this are there, and though usually the rule at the community is to ignore rants you disagree with, I'm not in the mood for offending them or dealing with disagreement.

But god, I HATE it when people post picspams of screencaps, even ones they've color-edited themselves, and then get all betrayed and hurt and cagey and upset when other people make icons out of their caps. And it happens, I swear, EVERY time anyone posts a screencap picspam. If you don't want people to make icons out of caps you've made/colored/posted, DON'T FUCKING POST THE CAPS. Or else GET OVER IT. It's not like you even came up with those pictures yourself, or anything. If you don't want people using them, it's not that hard to not post them or to flock them.

Or it's like when people get all bent out of shape because someone else made an icon in the same style that they did. GET OVER IT. It always reminds me of that quote "good writers borrow; great writers steal." "Liberating" ideas from their initial captors is a part of art. It's going to happen. Besides that, mimicry is how people LEARN, for fuck's sake, so get over the fact that someone else used a similar style on an icon that they made.

ALSO, icontests have taught me that ten different people can totally look at the same picture and come up with THE EXACT SAME crop and coloring. It doesn't mean that the first one was copied by the last nine. It just means that, for whatever reason, they all thought the same thing would look good.

ugh. As Bella Swan said to Edward Cullen after they made hot sweet love for the first time and then he sulked because he HATES HIMSELF (and also had feathers in his teeth), "stop killing my buzz." (This is an actual quote from an actual scene in the actual book Breaking Dawn, which is a gripping and horrifyingly badly written tale of ~true love~ that you should read at your first and every opportunity.)

11th-Aug-2008 10:47 pm - a rant.
So, I bought this little $5 package of raspberries today at the store, and it had like twenty raspberries, MAYBE, so that's like, idk, 25 cents a raspberry, and when I opened it up it said "Please rinse before eating." WTF. BITCH NO. I BOUGHT MY RASPBERRIES AT THE STORE AND I WANT TO OPEN THAT TASTY LITTLE PACKAGE UP AND SAVOR THEM ONE AT A TIME (YET IN QUICK SUCCESSION) THE MOMENT I HIT THE PARKING LOT. BITCH DON'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO WITH MY RASPBERRIES. I'LL EAT THAT PESTICIDE AND THOSE BUGS OR WHATEVER THE FUCK NASTYASS SHIT IS IN THERE THAT I SHOULDN'T BE EATING AND IT'LL MAKE ME STRONGER AND POSSIBLY TURN ME INTO A TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLE OR SPIDERMAN. AND THEN I WILL GO TO YOUR CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS AND LODGE A SUPER-POWERED COMPLAINT ABOUT THE INSTRUCTIONS ON YOUR RASPBERRY PACKAGES.

Anyway. I like raspberries. I just ate a bowl of macaroni and cheese. I like that too. I also bought drumsticks ice cream cone things on saaaaaaaaaale, and the first season of Supernatural, but not from the same store and also I'm not planning on eating Supernatural, even though Dean looks yummy.
