Tidbits of Matt's Life

This is where I post my incoherent ramblings. It's where I post the coherent ones, too!

Right now I am annoyingly: productive

Between my waiting over a year to contact Google about why Ours Will You 1-Up was taken down only to find out that it was too late to do so, and a new Enya CD coming out before I finished redesigning OWY1U, writing any more of Moya's Space Log, OR updating my profile, interests, or glossary, it's really starting to sink in that I've procrastinated SOOO many things on LiveJournal.

I figure the best way to feel better about it is to suddenly finish several updates I've been wanting to make all at once, so that's what I'm doing right now!

I started by... Remember when I was so depressed about the Forbidden Comment Threads that I decided to add "Dark Matt1993" LJ Trading and Tarot cards under the regular Matt1993 cards I already had on my profile (also seen here, but slightly more outdated)? I've been wanting to remove those from my profile (just the Dark Matt1993 ones, I mean) for a while now that I worry less often - and hence, they're more outdated than the cards for regular me despite the latter being made earlier. So I finally got rid of them.

But since there will probably come a time when I want to remember exactly what the Dark Matt cards said, I actually just moved them here along with the paragraph that was above them. (This also ended up finally making the text on the cards as legible as I wanted it - even though I included HTML tags for white text, the text was still black while these were on my profile.)



Considering what I feel like now, both of those are very outdated. I decided that a neat thing to do for an update would be not to replace them, but to make separate trading & tarot cards for Dark Matt1993.

Unfortunately, the site where I made the Matt1993 cards seems to be down right now, so I had to copy and edit the HTML from those cards. But nonetheless, here they are:

This is what Matt1993 feels like inside after the Forbidden Comment Threads. It is rumored that the artist's depiction above is less terrifying than some of the things Matt has said on LiveJournal... Enjoy your nightmares...
Strengths: None.
Weaknesses: Hundreds of stupid comments and regrets; is an abomination.
Special Skills: The ability to offend anyone.
Weapons: Dark PrtSc (Dark-type, 70% chance of eating part of opponent's soul and doing 4d6 damage), Comment (Dark-type, 50% chance of causing the opponent to flee in terror)
Type: Electric/Dark

Dark matt1993
The corrupted, traumatized remnants of a 16-bit nerd and his Yoshi wait in the void for their next victim...
Divinatory Meanings: Much like the Death card, the Dark Matt1993 card is often misunderstood; it signifies... Oh, who am I kidding, Dark Matt1993 will destroy us ALL!!!
Reversed: Dark Matt1993 will still destroy us ALL!!!
Lucky and Unlucky Numbers: Lucky: none; unlucky: 141, 227, 301, 311, 312, 436, 506, 513, 545, 775, 784, 913, 1027, 1117, 1118, 1119, 1121, 1128, 1222.

(Since I never explained this back in the day, I might as well mention that most of the "unlucky numbers" on the Dark Matt1993 Tarot card had something to do with the FCT or something that reminded me of them, but for a lot of them, I no longer remember exactly what. Some of them were the release dates of video games that, at some point, I thought people would dislike me for. 1222 probably refers to Square Root of Minus Garfield #1222, so there's probably references to other comics that reminded me of the FCT in there. It's probably a good thing that I don't remember what some of them were referencing. :) )


(And yes, I just used "Dark Sky Island" as a unit of time equivalent to about seven years - the time between the releases of And Winter Came and Dark Sky Island. :) )

(EDIT: I just realized the the above paragraph only makes sense if you saw the LJ-cuts that these cards are under.)

Outdated or not, those are interesting to have for posterity. :)

I haven't been on Facebook lately, so I wasn't wondering. :)

I thought you'd at least get email notifications, unless you're smart and turned them all off. :)

That also works! You can just go in there when you can, and delete all those emails, and clear the notifications relatively easily!
