    oh my god this was a mistake

    i am terrible and fat and plain and it will cost like a bazillion dollars to try to make me look presentable yorkdale has like two stores i can use and they're both stupid expensive

    i fucking hate shopping, i hate that a thin lady can walk into any store and try stuff on while i'm fucked, i hate my body, i hate missing out on that whole female experience of shopping, i am just frustrated

    if it's any consolation, clothes off the rack fit almost no ladies, thin or not.

    there are at least eight highly-variable critical dimensions to a lady's body dimensions. shoulder width, bust size, waist size, hip size, arm length, neck size, leg length, etc. to say nothing of the fact that some of these dimensions are highly dynamic on most ladies because of menstrual bloating and such.

    and you guys get one single non-standard measurement number (size 2 olol!)

    frankie has turned to making to sewing her own clothes in part because of this.

    so uh take heart. more central to the female experience of going shopping and trying on clothes is being able to find nothing that fits you or looks good on you!

    Pony when you said The Collector I thought you wrote that awesome horror movie that came out last year.

    I was getting excited.

    I've never seen your Canadian television, except for Degrassi

    yeah i should've been more specific

    technically most of what i did on the Collector is script doctoring, not writing proper

    but i did participate in some of the episode writing, but because i was non-guild and i was an arrogant little fuck without an agent i got screwed over and got no credit

    i got money from it, not a lot, but they did pay me. what i didn't get was credit so i am bitter about that

    (to be clear i am not bitter about being uncredited for script doctoring because script doctors don't get credit usually, it's more the actual contributions i am bitter about)

    the stuff with Space was much more infuriating. i don't know if i can express how disappointing it is to get all excited that your own TV show is being made, that you wrote, and you tell your family and your friends and you go to all these fancy meetings and you meet with casting people and you sit in on casting aaaaand

    then you get a call one day and they're like "yyyyeah we're not going to greenlight the pilot after all, we decided not to front the money sorry"

    You ever thought about making your own webseries now that HD filming is so cheap now?

    i'd either have to front the money myself (which I can't) or get investors

    investors creates obligations, profit obligations, and as anyone can tell you making money off the internet is hard

    moreover, I am not an amateur film-maker. I am a writer. I write. I don't have the interest or chops to engage in an entire online series production. I've made independent amateur films before, even on their most basic level they cost a lot of money and require a great deal of investment

    and skills that, quite frankly, I am not endowed with. just because I am a writer doesn't mean I know dick all about how to light a shot, for example.

    For some reason I find it vaguely annoying that there are nineteen different kinds of cat litter in the shop.

    I just can't see there being that many specific use cases for it. And competing on branding for a material that your animals use to bury their poop seems retarded.

    Godfrey Daniels, this is the last straw.
    I flipped my eggs that morning using only my bare hand, and while it hurt a bit, I consider that the pain of a "natural kitchen" rebirth. I gave up cooking utensils that day and never looked back.

    Actually seriously, my aunt asked my grandma for tips about cotton gathering in order to make her own totally-from-scratch blankets and my grandma almost hit her.

    Yeah I have yet to meet a lady for whom most clothes don't fail to fit some particular body part or other. The legs are too long or short or there's not enough room in the thighs or hip or the bust doesn't fit right and the shoulders are off and the sleeves are too narrow or

    it is a litany of complaints

    I'll say the same thing for White Wolf's "World of Darkness." I loved the lore, the stories, and the general feel of the setting.

    I did not love the douchebags who played it in hobby shops or 90% of the people playing the LARPs.

    I used to follow the MTG story pretty closely (The novels written by Jeff Grubb are fantastic), but this tailed away after Time Spiral, which felt too much like a Crisis On Infinite Earths style plot device to kill off all the old planeswalkers to let the lightweights get some attention.
