And speaking of political issues. Net Neutrality... there's a lot of scary stuff going down in congress. If they let timewarner get their way, it's not gonna be pretty.

Proof that kids shows are getting better and better....why couldn't they sing about pirates when I was little?

I always thought the Lazytown show was well choreographed for a children's show. Also, the people on YOUTUBE dissing Lazytown are worthless sock sniffers.

I've been a pirate since watching the Goonies, Cutthroat Island, and Sinbad! My name is Iron Grace Kidd the Bonney!

I was a gypsy on Halloween last year and my friend Roman was a pirate. He kept on insisting that we should have lice-infested, scraggy-haired, scurvy-strickened babies together throughout the night. I hope to god he was drunk...

When I was reeeeeally little (like, barely-just-learned-to-read little) I liked to obsess over four things: Ancient Egypt, Greecian myths, bats, and pirates. I think I have read every pirate book, at one point or another, in the entirety of the santa cruz county library system. My dad and I would stay up late watching old pirate movies (including the ones Gracey mentioned), sing pirate songs and dress up in piratey stuff. Me and my friends even had pirate-themed birthday parties. XD Ah, the good ol' days...

And I would definitely go as a pirate for Halloween this year, if I wasn't sure every other comment would mention the PotC sequel. Then again, I'll prolly still go as one anyway.

Last year I took my younger siblings around dressed in my armor and stuff from Kanar. It's funny how impressed people are with your costume when they see you in actual steel chainmail with real leather armor. I can't really carry the weapons though.... I can't count how many LotR remarks I heard that night.

Yeah, don't you hate having your obscure nerddom stolen by pop culture? I mean, I used to be a star wars fan, then episode 1 happened. I've been hitting people with sticks and dressing up in armor for years, then LotR became a movie. Modest mouse was an obscure, indie band my freshman year., now they're on the radio. Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphy's... Irsh punk for years, now they sell their shirts at hot-topic. I mean, dang it, even computers are cool now!

I guess that's kind of how I'm beginning to feel about the anime subculture.  I wasn't there in the late 80s with a translator and Speed Racer, but definitely before there was more than just Dragon Ball Z on TV.  And now there are all these kids running around screaming about how they're really "half Japanese" cause they're the biggest otaku (egos) they know.  It's impossible to sit down and watch a Miyazaki movie with these people because then it turns into an otaku fest.

Kicked out of Star Wars and being dragged, kicking and screaming from anime...I need to find a new fandom where the people are somewhat normal again. x.x  And geeky.

Ah, but that's just the thing about fandoms. No matter what it is, it will always become the "in" thing eventually, and there will always be the crazy fans that latch onto it and give the other, less psychotic fans a bad name. So is life. :
