I love reading the rec request posts on the manga sharing comms. Sometimes they are requesting things I want to read, sometimes it's just fun to read the posts. Just read one request listing a bunch of stuff, the first of which is "Prostitution/uke sleeping around because he's emo." I had to LOL at the "because he's emo" part. I don't care for prostitution stories, but I do like emo sleeping around stories. I see too much of the former and not enough of the latter (that don't suck). :P

Wow, the Sci Fi channel changed its name to "Syfy"...How incredibly lame and dorky. What's wrong with "sci fi" anyway? It is what it is. "Syfy" is stupid.

I spent some time watching different versions of "Paparazzi" on youtube and found a pretty good live version here. Just don't watch the video, because the dancing was not very impressive. I think she should do a live version with tons of back-up dancers (a la Johnny's), this song is the one to do it with.

'Syfy' is trademarkable, though, while 'Sci-Fi' obviously isn't. I believe it's also part of a re-branding effort, perhaps in hopes that viewers won't keep saying "Why is the Sci-Fi channel airing a wrestling show?"

So, yeah, corporate greed + corporate stupidity. XD

It seems that they want to distance themselves from the sci-fi geek image in their rebranding. So they run straight towards lame? Ugh. Besides, geek isn't nearly the bad word it used to be...

Ah yes... everyone was a teenage prostitute in YaoiLand. I like cliches and have a fondness to this particular one so it doesn't irk me but it is a bit LOLsome when it appears again and again and again and again...

I don't think I've ever been fond of this particular cliche. I think it's too easy? :P

For a moment there I thought one of her back-up dancer was Britney's ex LOL.
