Icons a go-go!

I love novelty tees. LOVE THEM. Some of my favorites I can't wear in public. So let's make them icons! (Most slogans from bustedtees.com or teeshirthell.com.) ...and LJ's upserpic page has SUCKED lately.

Teasers:



1. 2. 3.

4. 5. 6.

7. 8. 9.

10. 11. 12.

13. 14.

Comment if taking, credit is lovely, but not necessary, as I aped most of the slogans. Feel free to share with others.

One last time: if you have a REAL PERSON GAMING journal, you are in danger of having it deleted with NO QUESTIONS ASKED by the TOS team. Back up your journal. See my last post for information on how to do it efficiently. TOS Abuse team cracked down with a vengeance last night. Disclaimers may not be enough. :/

[eta]: A-Listers: until further notice, please flock your characters' journals. That should take the heat off. Thanks. This is VERY easy to do in Seamagic: click Journal, History, and all of your posts appear in a list. Highlight each one, hit "Edit" and change the settings to FRIENDS. Click Post and continue and OK. Done.

HAHAHAHAHA! "I like to fuck. Signed, Your mom" is the BEST OVER EVER.

Why is LJ cracking down on the Real Person RPG suddenly? Were there complaints from LJers?

Uh, that should be best ONE ever, not best OVER ever. *can't type, is lame*

Hahahaha, that's the one that I made up, too. HEE!!

There was going to be an alternate version, that didn't have the word "signed" and the addition in (): see how important punctuation is?

WHEE!!

And LJ is a DOUCHE. A journal was completely obliterated without notice, claiming it was an impersonation, which fall under "abuse" and isn't tolerated. !!!!

How is it considered "abuse" if the person impersonated (say, Oprah) doesn't know about it and therefore, cannot complain about it? I could see LJ deleting a specific journal if Oprah discovered it and complained but without that complaint? Makes me a little (read: A LOT) leery of what else LJ could deem as "abuse." Were there disclaimers and everything and LJ *still* deleted the journals?

Lord, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a crackdown on fanfic now because I can totally see LJ pulling the dick move of "copyright infringement = abuse = DELETION."

Apparently, this particular journal was turned in for abuse, so... there goes the whole trust the community thing. :|

There WERE disclaimers. It's just a clusterfuck. They've (the LJ abuse team) have stated that they consider it an impression, meant to BE that person, which is in direct violation.

I'm counting on the fact that our community was a PARODY that it will be safe. But I'm not taking chances. And yeah - evidently what drew the attention to the abuse team was that "character" posting fanfic. :/

I agree - I love seeing the look on their faces when college age kids realize that yes, their parents (and grandparents!) are still doing it like monkeys whenever their bedroom door is shut. ::evil grin::

And dude, wtf is with lj? Which celeb starting bitching? Or which lj developer got RPF'ed?

Jan. 24th, 2007 04:33 pm (UTC)
Wheee! That one makes me ROFL.

I have NO IDEA what brought this on. So ridonkulous. (Although, the person deleted commented with the character journal outside the comm in other comms, which isn't a good idea.)

I wonder if Prince's REAL flying unicorn is going to sue my ass. :D

this is unrelated to this post:

i've been listening to your character mixes and OMG I LOVE THEM SO MUCH!!!

also, i'm working on an 'i hate my boss and wish he would die' mix and was wondering if you had any song recommendations. the first disc of the mix is all about the hate and rage, the second disc is more about the 'ha ha i'm leaving, you fucker' factor of quitting a job where they desperately need you but treat you like poo.

you have super interesting and varied musical tastes so if you have any thoughts i'd appreciate them.
stoney321
Jan. 24th, 2007 04:39 pm (UTC)
Oh, hurray!! I'm glad you're liking them. *g*

Oooh, songs of rage and hate?

For sheer anger: Pantera "Fucking Hostile" or "Drunkship of Laterns" by Mars Volta are always winners
For ineffectual anger: "Bullet with butterfly wings" by Smashing Pumpkins

And of course, the classic: "Take This Job and Shove It" for when you quit. *g*

Love your icons. The "your mom" thing is great, and actually anything really dorky about sex is awesome. I almost cringe when I laugh at "I'd hit that," but not quite. Because... I am a dork.

Oh, you can laugh! BECAUSE IT'S FUNNY. *gives stamp of approval*

Awesome icons. I've been craving t-shirts that aren't free advertising for some company, but hadn't been able to find anything I liked. I'll be checking out those sites you mentioned.

Yay!! Threadless is another great tee shirt company. A bit more esoteric than slogans.

Oooh, someone else -- and now I can't remember who -- recently posted the "I'd hit that" graphic in icon form, and I was like, gimme! But these are great, a whole bevvy of like-minded icons. Verrah nice!

I love these!! I already have a bunch of novelty tee icons but I make take some of these. I've had the "hit that" one for awhile cause I love that shirt. The Fantasy Football one is awesome. I've never seen that.
stoney321
Jan. 24th, 2007 07:41 pm (UTC)
Isn't the fantasy football one hilarious??? I can't wait for my tee to get here, YAYCAKES!

(I can't change the settings on comm posts, only personal journals. If you feel it necessary, you might lock down Kat(i) and Gwyn's posts there. I just NOW finished all four journals, in all three RPGs. SHEESH.)

Jan. 24th, 2007 08:29 pm (UTC)
Man. I was all excited that I never made all that many posts to my personal journals so it wouldn't be that hard to flock everything.

What sucks is that I can't even touch my posts at celeb_wtf cause I'm not a member anymore. I should get in touch with a mod about that.
stoney321
Jan. 24th, 2007 09:52 pm (UTC)
I had to do that - and they gave me access to ONE of them. A few emails later... :)

(And be sure to mention that if they take you off the member list, you won't be able to SEE the posts you've just flocked, so... DON'T TAKE GWYN OFF THE LIST, kthx.)

And YEAH to the RPG stuff. I've spend ALL. MORNING. flocking every single post by four characters. Jeeeeeeeeeeeez.

I'm in love with the rainbow and "Try to pay attention to the language we've all agreed on." When I get around to having a paid account again, I am so gonna gack 'em. (Credit will be given, promise!)

See, things like this are why I'm leery of writing RPF and why I don't RP on LJ. I actually prefer RPing on AIM, which most people think is nuts. ("Having to reply within two minutes to whatever was just said to your character? What? Huh? But how do you avoid stupid lines like...'::walks into a room:: Hi'?" Answer: you don't. ;-))

That really sucks about the deletion thing, though! ::is |this| close to flocking all fic::
stoney321
Jan. 24th, 2007 07:39 pm (UTC)
Take all you want!

And honestly, up until this point I haven't had any worries about posting RPF, etc., because of using disclaimers that it's fantasy, etc. In the case of my old RPG, it was an obvious parody, so I still hold that it's protected under Freedom of SPeech.

Somebody really needs to sit LJ down and talk to them about using volunteer TOS enforcement in very large online communities, using the rise and fall of AOL message boards as an example of why not.

In any case, I want to buy the actual "rainbow" shirt and give it to my BIL, who talks so much about teh gheyz you'd think he actually had one after his pallid ass. I had to bit my tongue last summer when he was going ON about it with my cousin's husband, and I wanted to say "Sure, somewhere on the internet there's Paul/Eric XXX slash fic."

I think a large part of the problem in this incident is the delted journal was apparently posting outside the comm as the person - posting fanfic?

So. That's a bit much, I think.

You SHOULD get that rainbow shirt! I think it's hilarious.

Oh, good! I'm glad you like those - the two you pointed out and the "Fantasy Football" are my faves. (I have a tee shirt coming with the Fantasy Football image, heeee!)

As for LJ and deletion, yeah. I didn't think so before, but I sure am, now. I think flocking is currently the only way to deflect such unwanted attention - to some degree.

Love these icons. Pimp, mom and the rainbow are rocking me.

This RPS crack down is nuts. Talk about going overboard regarding things that are obviously not even close to real life.

Have them all!! *shoves icons at you*

And seriously - this is what they spend their time on? I get it if someone was STALKING someone, or harassing a person, but RPGs? Dude, most of the time they don't even get READ outside of the players, so...

LAME.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
