Just to reiterate that this journal is friends only...
That, and I found a new pic to show as such.

Due to unforseen circumstances, this journal will become 'Friends Only' after this point.
If you wish to continue reading this journal, and you haven't already friended me. Please let me know who you are.
|I give up.

Once again, my looking out for others has come to bite me in the rear end.
There were signatures by a couple of members at EI which tracked IP addresses. This caused a concern at another board which I moderate, so I brought the concern up at EI. It's what I consider to be my home board, so of course I try to look out for it when I can.
So what do I get for my troubles? Accusations of public humiliation?
Fucking bullshit!! I even said that I didn't think they had any malicious intent, but it was a concern at another board that I frequent, so I figured I'd pass along the concern to the place I consider to be 'home'.
Well the 'home' is becoming a broken home. People are going away, or migrating to other boards. I think the only thing that makes me happy anymore is playing in the Trancer RP where I can play the one character that's meant the most to me. Romulus.
So they want to condemn me, go ahead. They want to persecute me, go ahead. They want my head to place on a pike in the garden, I'd like to see them fucking try!!
A new question is beginning to creep into my head.
"Is it even worth it anymore?"

|We've Gone Live
||[27 Jun 2005|10:13pm]
I am happy, and proud to say, that Anime Jumpgate has now gone live.
The R&D Team and I worked together to make a board that should appeal to a wide variety of anime fans, while also maintaining that Newbie-Friendly environment that I felt was really important. The main reason that I created this site to begin with.
Some of the R&D team have stayed on to become moderators at the site. For that I thank them. They know who they are. I may be the guy who started this thing, but without you guys, we couldn't have put this together.
We've already got a good start with membership, and even our own John Burke is amongst the converts. We can attribute that to Pip's persuasion techniques. ;)
So come on over and give us a look. Stop by and add to some of the conversations. Stop by the Sushi Bar and play in one of the games. Either way, I hope you all enjoy yourselves. And thank you to my R&D Team for all your hard work. :)
||[30 May 2005|09:24pm]
Well, it's been a while since I updated, so here's to ya.
My team and I are working very well together on Anime Jumpgate. NeuralClone, Slipfighter, Pip, Shal, MegL, ArchAngel, Niko, and myself have made excellent progress, and I think we might be good to go within the next couple of weeks.
I've also gone ahead and registered a domain for board purposes.
Looks like I've gone the full 9 yards. I must be going insane. Next you know, I'll be getting affiliates, and shopping links, and all sorts of things.
Just how far am I going to take this? I don't know at this point in time. It's just something I've always wanted to do. I'm by no means an anime expert, but I think that I bring enough to the table that I can get by. And what do you do when you know enough that you don't know enough? You surround yourself with people that you know can complement you. Those of you on the team reading this, I thank you for your continued support. I couldn't do this without you. :)
So keep your eyes and ears open, and we'll try and get some news out in the near future. :)
||[17 May 2005|08:04am]
Perhaps I was a bit too harsh with my previous entry. I'm going through another self-depreciation and self-conscienscious phase, and I went too far. For that, I apologize.
I am, however, going to be making an Anime Message Board. That way, I think I'll be able to atone to myself, and perhaps those I may have hurt by saying what I said.
And it'll keep me busy. ;)
|OH YEAH! :D

You are a Jedi Master.
You are the best the Jedi have to offer. You have great wisdom and your combat abilities are hard to match. The Force is your ally, and it is useful to solve difficult problems, to help you push yourself to your limits and to accomplish seemingly impossible feats. Patience and inner strength have made you the person you are now.
You are the pinnacle of the Jedi Order.

The Keys to Your Heart
You are attracted to those who have a split personality - cold as ice on the outside but hot as fire in the heart.
In love, you feel the most alive when things are straight-forward, and you're told that you're loved.
You'd like to your lover to think you are stylish and alluring.
You would be forced to break up with someone who was emotional, moody, and difficult to please.
Your ideal relationship is lasting. You want a relationship that looks to the future... one you can grow with.
Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.
You think of marriage as something precious. You'll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.
In this moment, you think of love as something you thirst for. You'll do anything for love, but you won't fall for it easily.
||[29 Apr 2005|08:06pm]
I hope that others take this quiz! ^_^
You have an intense kiss! You and your partner
connect when you kiss and you forget about the
rest of the world. Hey, call me!!! ^_~
What anime kiss are you?

good_night is Lauren Goodnight
cpatton is Chris Patton
kirikayumura is Monica Rial
and fightdir is Chris Ayres
I think that was cast quite well. :)
||[21 Apr 2005|07:21pm]
I was putting drinks in the fridge to get cold, and I heard a chirping coming from my room. I wasn't sure where it was coming from. It wasn't coming from the speakers from my DVD system, and the TV was off. But lo and behold, it was coming from the TV itself. The inside to be more specific. I couldn't even turn it on. So I guess what I'm trying to say, is that the TV in my room is screwed.
My DVD system is set up on that television, and it's where I spend most of my time.......hell, it helps to wake me up in the morning, as I have it set on a timer. Let's hope I'm not late for work in the morning. eh?
The good news is, that I'm expecting a bit of a bonus from work, when I get paid next. The problem with that, is that I just got paid, and I won't be paid again until May 3. So I think I'm going to be falling behind in my viewing.........and I have so much to catch up on.
Rommie may be a frazzled Rommie by the time this is all over. :S
|I guess I should think about doing this....

TV Characters Meme
1. Post a list of ten TV shows you watch (not necessarily your favorite shows)
2. Have your friends list guess your favorite character from each show
3. When guessed, bold the line and briefly describe why you like that character
4. Post in your own LJ/blog (optional)
Okay, you asked for it. ;)
Full Metal Panic - Sousuke Sagara
I am so much like Sousuke, I identified with the character quickly. He is socially adept, serious all the time, and goes to extremes in every situation.....well I don't go to extremes, but close enough. ;) - Guessed by Pip
Neon Genesis Evangelion - Misato Katsuragi
One of the first Female favorites, Misato Katsuragi still tops the list. When she's on the job, she's a commanding authoritative figure. When she's off the clock, she lets her hair down, and lets it all hang loose. And to let Shinji see that side of her, makes him family. :) - Guessed by Niko
Kiddy Grade - Eclair
Eclair simply kicks ass. Literally. Her Ta-Daaaaa rings in your soul, and she has a kindness to her that isn't often found. Plus the voice actress, Colleen Clinkenbeard, totally rocks. ;) - Guessed by Pip
Cowboy Bebop - Spike Spiegel
Spike is the epitome of coolness. He handles everything in a calm demeanor, and knows just what to do in every situation. He knows just the right thing to say. His philosophies are also something to make you think. One of my first favorite characters. :) - Guessed by Pip
*Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam*
Super Dimensional Fortress Macross - Misa Hayase
Also known as Lisa Hayes in the Robotech Universe. She was actually a tie with Roy Fokker, but Misa edged him out. ;) Her mature attitude towards life was what kept Rick on the straight and narrow. If he had become totally focused on Minmei, he might have been killed. She taught him to keep a level head on his shoulders. What more could you ask from a woman? :)
You'll never get all 10. ;)
||[14 Apr 2005|09:41pm]
Well, I guess it's about time that I actually wrote an update for this thing, isn't it? I haven't even updated my Anime Journal in ages. I should see about doing that again someday.
Well first and foremost, I've been selected as the newest watchdog over at Ex Isle. While I have voiced certain opinions of the Watchdog Position, in that I have doubts about it's necessity, I accepted the position in hopes of better understanding the position from the opposite side of the spectrum. The timing was quite ironic, but nonetheless I have always done my best to try and help the board and the community as much as possible. Perhaps this on my resume would also open the door for a possible Moderatorship down the road........we'll see how much my sanity remains intact after this stint. ;)
I've also accepted a moderator position at a board run by Admiral Tibbetts of StargateBBS. Apparently he was/is a regular over at the Sci-Fi boards. But when the board kept getting hacked, and overrun by trolls and assholes, he created a friendlier board. He had an anime forum that he needed vitalized, so he asked me to come over. I went over in a flash.......like bait on a hook, eh? ;)
Television viewing has taken a small stray from Anime viewing. Aside from rekindling my Andromeda embers, I had a dose of British Comedy. I've been on a Benny Hill binge lately, having bought the two DVD collections that encompass his early years at Thames Television from 1969-1974, and they're hilarious. The man was a true comic genius, and had me laughing all the time. Another is The Thin Blue Line, starring Rowan Atkinson. It's about a smalltown police station, and the hijinks that go on around it. It's a great series, and being a fan of Rowan Atkinson, it made it all the better. :)
Andromeda is still going slowly, but I went on that British Comedy binge. I think watching these episodes knowing what I know now, makes this go-around a much more enjoyable experience. I think that being outside of the influence of the weekly input on the episodes may give me a fresh perspective that some no longer possess.
I'm still watching anime as well, so don't think that Ol' Rommie isn't sticking to his guns. I just watched the first 5 episodes of Sakura Wars today in anticipation of the next 5 discs being delivered today.......but they weren't. Such is my luck. ;) I've got so much backlog, that it's pathetic. :P
And I just want to say many thanks to the Pipster. She knows what I'm talkin' about. You'll have an e-mail comin' your way, kiddo. ;)
Anyhoo, there's your update. Did I waste enough of your time? ;)
