For a wonder

I slept straight through last night. I don't feel rested though. Damn!

I disagree, however.

Like the BBSs back in the olden times, Badvogato seems to be undergoing reincarnation to fit the image of it's makers. The current clique is redefining the site to suit themselves. So it always is. There will be newcomers who feel the cold shoulder and depart, old timers who hate the changes because something familiar that they liked is going away. There will be one or more assholes who come in and crap all over everyone, piss people off and maybe even one that simply refuses to go away. The site will likely degenerate as the most frequent posters gradually say all that they have to say and they and their colleagues no longer find it necessary or fun to argue. Some posters will leave and a new clique will arise and go through the same tribulations.

NuniaBiz conjectures that there is some transference between LiveJournal and Badvogato. I suspect that we'll see some of every sort, good and bad. I think there will be some transference both ways. I have hopes, however for Bad. I think the concept is an appealing one that will draw people back. As long as people keep coming back, there will occasionally be some newcomer(s) that re-vitalize the rest.

As for me, where else can I hobnob with my fellow evil overlords?

1) I looked at the Badvogato site, and found myself with sort of this feeling of entering the strange and unknown. I like to feign wrechedness, but really I'm as far from it as a person can get. I could possibly be considered a Mastermind, i think, but I'm not sure about an "Evil" Mastermind. I'm just not usually malevolent enough.

2) that was the most profound and accurate cross-sectioning of a message board sort of site that I've seen.

Been there a lot and for a long time. I love Badvogato. It is a place to vent and to let go of all the evil in you.

Certain individuals there sneer at the "pretend evil" and one or two claim to be "real" criminials, but what it boils down to is it is a place to exercise the dark side everyone has.

Why not let the dark stuff come out and be done with it? There is nothing more pathetic than a villain who apologizes for being one or an explanation at the end of a movie that the monster wasn't really evil, he was just the victim of a tormented childhood. Nothing angers me more. I love Dracula and Lestat, vampires who are unapologetically vampires. Vader would have been a great villain had he not come 'round at the end. As it is we are left with a ruined hero and not a dramatic evil overlord. I'll go for the drama ahead of the schmaltz any day.

Re: Conjecture Junction, what's your function?

Having nothing interesting to say has never kept my mouth shut in my entire life.

Being a 38 year old elementary school teacher and mother of 3. So you can imagine the minds that I'm ruining as a result.

Still pales in comparison after I killed that priest last summer. In a lounge chair, coincidentally.

Re: Conjecture Junction, what's your function?

The crap in my head isn't just trivial, but useless.

Unless you want to know all about such and such legislation or such and such a policy or whatever it is that this chip implant keeps pumping through my cortex.

Sirens? Could be. There are a lot of fire trucks on my street. There goes one now. Wow, you must have a good internet connection.

Will I come for you? Of course. Just hold still. No, turn to the left just a little bit. You better believe I'll come for you. With the black choppers and and everything.

Double entendre? You want a double entendre? Well, I'll give it to you...
