Just a Curbside Prophet...

What happened to Jason Mraz? Boy, did he fall off, or what? Anyway, that's all peas and carrots beacuse the real point of this post is to discuss the elusive fanboy. Many of you have heard that terminology, but wondered what it was about, but a quick look at Wikipedia.org brings us this definition:

"Fanboy or Fanboi is a term used to describe a male who is utterly devoted to a single subject or hobby, often to the point where it is considered an obsession. The term originated in comic book circles, to describe someone who was socially insecure and used comics as a shield from interaction, hence the disparaging connotations. Fanboys are often experts on minor details regarding their hobbies, and they take these details extremely seriously. The term itself is often used in a derogatory manner by less serious fans of the same material. Nevertheless, self-labeling usages of the term have been noted; in the songs of the fannish parody musician Luke Ski, many characters proudly consider themselves fanboys. The term is usually applied to people in their teens or 20s. Within this group, common subjects of reverence by fanboys are TV shows, movies, anime, cars, video game consoles, video games, operating systems, MMORPGs, and software companies."

Looking at the above text, one would think that fanboys have harmless fun with thier favorite things, and are just generally looking to find fun and interesting things. This couldn't be farther from the truth. Fanboys are not only a risk to the things that they love, and the things that others love, but they are a risk to our national security and if you put up with them, then the terrorists have won. You might think that I"m exaggerating, but I'd like to speak with you for a moment if I could about the main dangers that fanboys are proving to be.

1.) They hate everything!
Seriously, everything. I'd like to point you towards the website Aint It Cool News. The place is literally crawling with fanboys and pick any random thread and you'll find the large majority of those whiny ingrates complaining about something that they could never change or create anything better. In the same thread you'll find those smelly bastards praising to the highest heavens and danming to the bowels of hell the same movie, comic, or television show. And God forbid that anybody should mention Joss Whedon. Saying that name is similar to calling the name of Beetlegeuse in these trying times.

2.) Ever heard of the show Family Guy?
Everybody by now knows that that show was brought back thanks to the efforts of tried and true fanboys. And if you helped bring that show back and you don't consider yourself a fanboy you're either (a) a girl OR (b) lying to yourself. Now what if those same fanboys turned the tide onto shows that they wanted to see off the air. Forget Gilmore Girls, or America's Next Top Model, you'll be watching Star Gate and BattleStar Galatica all day long. On all the channels. And not that new, cool, BattleStar Galatica, no, you'll be watching the old one with the puppets. And granted, I don't watch either Gilmore Girls, or America's Next Top Model, but you get my point. ABC think's they got a lot of mail over that whole Janet Jackson thing.... This writing campaign will make that look like Louie Anderson's yearly fanmail.

3.) They have stupid catchphrases and lingo.
pwned. That's all I have to say about that.

4.) The large majority of them are either 12 or 48.
I'll refer you to the above point. Who would say that except for a 12 year old? It's owned so obviously spelled wrong that it makes your head hurt. Seriously, feel that? That's your head throbbing. The other half are old enough to be your father, and they're talking to you about Jessica Alba's bust size. I mean, I like Jessica Alba too, but not that much.

5.) They would be so much cooler if they didn't think they were so cool.
Now, I'm a geek, I know this. I don't languish in it, but I'm not ashamed of it. Fanboys think they are the authority on all things geeky. I could totally appreciate them if they didn't spend all of their time arguing about who would win in a fight, Kirk of Picard. I know guys are like that, but c'mon, let it go.

So, anyway, there you go, the top Five Reasons why fanboys suck. Now, I realize that I didn't mention a lot of national security stuff, but right as I was getting into that some men dressed all in black crashed through my window and very nicely asked me to not mention that. Well, their AK-47's asked me, they just mostly looked frightening. But next I'll be disscussing fangirls. So, you'll really want to stick around for that. Seriously, that'll rock.

** This is a description of most of the fanboys that I've evern been in contact with, my description of fangirls will mostly be a description of my own amiable qualities. Biased? Maybe, but we all know, Fangirls are people, too.

Here Comes the Boom, Ready or Not....

Sooooo, I like how I can just disappear for a while, make a Timberland quote and be right back in the seat of the action. YaY me!!! Well, the point of this point is a little random and a little scattered, but bear with me and it will all make sense in the end, or not, you know, whatever. The first thing I wanted to say: I don't like somebody just because of who they are. Like I mean, I don't just like all Japanese people because anime rocks, I don't like all gay people just for being gay and I don't like all black people just 'cause I'm black. I like people based on merits, and how they've been to me. Also, Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day. I hope that you all are humming 'We Shall Overcome' in your prospective front yards while building scale models of the March on Washington, or the Greensboro sit in or the historic stand of Rosa Parks made out of popsicle sticks and Elmer's glue. RIght on, power to the people, believe in the dream and so on. I hope that some of you watched the Boondocks last night, classic television and good stuff. If you haven't watched it ever, you should, because it's a darn good show. Funny, relevant, and hopeful, sometimes. Also, I have to get my oil changed. On that note, give my words some time to marinate, and come back, when next time, I'll make this all make sense. Or not, you know, whatever.

I am a French Michelle fan and I would like to know if michelle has an accent when she speaks English.

Yes, but it's a very slight accent

You can tell she is NOT a native English speaker, but she is highly educated and has known English fluently for a fairly long time, since-- I think-- her university years. She is a smart woman who is a native Cantonese speaker. She apparently has a really awful accent when speaking Mandarin Chinese, but NOT English.

She doesn't mix up her "r" or "l" sounds, and her pronounciation and enunciation is very good. She has a sort of husky voice and it's attractive, but you can tell she has an accent.

She has a British accent with her english, which is why she doesn't mix anything up. The reason for this is she learned English when she was a child going to school - Malaysia is a former British colony. Plus, she spent several years honing her English skills when going to school in England, working her way to a degree in choreography before becoming Miss Malaysia and then onto stardom in HK.

I don't have a source for this or anything, but I remember hearing somewhere that Michelle spoke English first. Now, I'm wondering if that's true or not. Mostly because I was under the impression that English was the language that most people spoke there, but a little research has proved that to be false. Apparently, during the time that Michelle was in grade school she would have been learning English, but speaking Malay (the official language of Malaysia) at home. Of course, Michelle's family was pretty well to do, so I don't know if she wouldn't have learned some English at home. That's just my understanding.

This is a really awesome rocking Japanese song that my friend, Ingrid, didn't think existed. It's really good and it's from the anime Bleach. I totally stole this idea from Imani's mom, thanks.
