THE WORLD IS SAVED!!

http://news.yahoo.com/congress-puts-brakes-anti-piracy-bills-050144281.html

YES! I had a feeling they would listen to Wikipedia, Google, and so on! Dunno if anyone in Congress saw some of my replaced userpics too, but I'll keep pretending they did :P

Starting tomorrow, I'm gonna change the userpics I did manage to replace back to normal, although the darkened versions will remain in my userpic space until a) we find out for sure that the compromise won't be just as bad (which I doubt it will, but still...) or b) I run out of room for normal userpics (which will take a while, as I'd need over 120 more for that to happen).

I'll also continue to make more, because even if SOPA did not ruin my life by making it impossible to ever finish my creative vortexes, the darkened userpics still count as at least 300* new creative vortexes that I've gotta get rid of. They just won't be my highest priority for now.

To celebrate, I'm gonna type as many words and phrases that SOPA's too-vague wording could have cracked down on my use of despite them being fair use or not even trademarked as I can in 10 minutes:

Mario. Luigi. Peach. Daisy. Yoshi. Homestar. Strong Bad. The Cheat. Neopets. Aisha. Acara. Poogle. Illusen. Fyora. Jhudora. Garfield. Odie. Jon. Liz. Nermal. Arlene. Pooky. Lyman. Irma. /crazymegavideo/. Google. Wikipedia. /tensen/. Bowser. Koopa. Goomba. Enya. Moya. Dido. Homsar. Wænya. mezzacotta. Garfield Minus Garfield. Square Root of Minus Garfield. Taelia. Gnorbu. Nimmo. Zafara. Kyrii. Petpet. Weeble. Spaghatta Nadle. Hyperbole and a Half. Alot. xkcd. Clean all the things. Facebook. LiveJournal. Blogger. Strong Sad. Strong Mad. Hammer Bro. Bullet Bill. Super Mushroom. Fire Flower. Ice Flower. Cape Feather. Tanooki Suit. Sarah McLachlan. Celine Dion. Pac-Man. Ms. Pac-Man. Blinky. Pinky. Inky. Clyde. Pac-Man Party. Toc-Man. Dry Bones. Dry Bowser. Rosalina. Super Mario Galaxy. Super Mario World. Super Mario Bros. Super Mario Bros. 2. Super Mario Bros. 3. Super Mario All-Stars. Super Mario Galaxy 2. Mario Kart. Mario Kart Wii. Wii. Nintendo 3DS. Mario Kart 7. Super Mario 3D Land. Boomerang Flower. Wadido. Super Smash Bros. Master Hand. Crazy Hand. Final Smash. Giga Bowser. Ganondorf. Link. Zelda. Sheik. Toon Link. The Legend of Zelda. Twilight Princess. Twilight. Harry Potter. Lord of the Rings. Frodo. Sam. Gandalf. The One Ring. Sauron. Sauraman. Legolas. Arwen. Gimli. Aragorn. Merry. Pippin. Bilbo. Mocorono Nodle. Pahckle. Pahrple drahnk. Parp. Parplegar circopomber. Garfield Plus Garfield. Garfield Divided by Garfield. PrtSc Land. Ours Will You 1-Up. Liobits. Cobrall. Teen Girl Squad. Trogdor. Bubs. Coach Z. Pom Pom. Marzipan. The King of Town. The Poopsmith. Stinkoman. 1-Up. Pan Pan. 20X6. Marshie. Mr. Shmallow. Mr. Game & Watch. Dr. Octagonapus & Watch. Grey's Anatomy. X-Files. Buffy. Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Spike. Angel. Xander. Willow. Giles. The First. Mulder. Scully. The Lone Gunmen. Skinner. Kersh. Doggett. Reyes. Fowley. Cigarette-Smoking Man. Super Mario Advance. Yoshi's Island. Donut Plains. Vanilla Dome. Forest of Illusion. Chocolate Island. SNES. NES.

Time's up. I managed 172 (if I counted right), although there were a few times that I paused because what first came to mind would have been a bizarre juxtaposition had I written it down right away (though apparently not always, as I put Mocorono Nodle next to Bilbo, Pac-Man next to Celine Dion and Grey's Anatomy next to Dr. Octagonapus & Watch).

*It's been a while since I counted how many unmade normal userpic ideas I have and added them to the amount I've already uploaded...

Pinky... but no Brain? D:

Actually, no. Having never watched Pinky and the Brain (although I think I'd like it if I did), I meant the pink ghost from Pac-Man.

Oh. And it is actually kind of obvious, in the context of what is around it, isn't it? LOL

Pinky and the Brain is indeed awesome, and whoa do 8-bit graphics look really funny blown up like that. He almost looks like a pink bat.

In this case, yes, but not necessarily throughout the whole thing - as I said, there's also some random category jumping, such as Sarah McLachlan and Celine Dion randomly being shoved between video game stuff. :P

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
