if you havent watched his videos yet im doing you a fucking favor

ANIME ANIME FROM JAPAN
KEEP YOUR FRIENDS CLOSE BUT YOUR ENEMIES CLOSER
holy shit his costumes and his wit and everything, hes PERFECT INTERNET but hes like 308942390483290 years old
i will never be this cool
dear nintendo, you should officially release this HIGH FASHION as lingerie in the next victorias secret fashion show
really you fucking should
then you should pay SOPHIA FOR THE BRILLIANT IDEA
and also donate a small amount to my PATREON FOR THE FOUNDERS FEE
the arcade is a dying artform, sega and namco are definitely doing their damnest to keep public space games interesting but the only way for people to shove their quarters in machines now is for HUGE GIMMICKS like skateboards that you stand on and actually kick when you want to jump , or JURRASIC PARK style jeep cabinet, that two friends sit in while shooting giant bugs and working together to have the highest COMPATIBLILTY SCORE at the end of your genocidal sunday drive or a BIKE YOU NEED TO PEDAL to stay afloat!
there are places like babycastles and invisble arcade and fantastic arcade and indiecade and the indie megabooth and OTHERS who are reviving the public-in person play with their own styles of arcades. i dont even think its FAIR to say arcades are dying, theyre just fucking evolving
AND THIS IS FUCKING GREAT, but many of us dont even KNOW some of the fucking hidden gems of arcades of old
as a frequenter of the arcade expo CALIFORNIA EXTREME which takes place a 10 minute drive from where i was born, as a child whos family couldnt afford a computer but all my friends parents worked at videogame companies so i HAD CONSOLES
as somoene who would take the bus every weekened to sunnyvale golfland to cheer people on in street fighter tournaments
as someone whos interest in videogames was re-kindled by experiencing the arcade culture in a 2005 trip to japants
and especially as a really really really really really perverted masochist
I UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF PLAY IN PUBLIC SPACES
every week im going to tell you about a game i love, that originated in the arcade
whether i have experienced actually playing it in an arcade is a different story, but you can be SURE if i have that ill tell you ALL about it
i have this cognitive disorder where i cant shut up you see
SO WELCOME! HOPEFULLY I CAN GET YOU TO GET OUT THERE AND FIND THE GAMES I SPEAK OF becuase i have good taste and you should play every game i recommend
not all the games i recommend will be SUPER RARE im not into being FIRST when its impossible to be first ANYTHIGN on the internet nowadays
i just want to offer games i love a space to be loved, and if any one person plays a game ive recommended, thats a priceless fufillment YOU SHOULD FUCKING PAY ME THOUGH
MACH BREAKERS: numan athletics is a sequel the most fucking frustrating arcade game ever, TRACK AND FIELD. YES THAT ONE and no i dont want to hear your method for hitting the buttons faster than everyone else, because everyone thats anyone knows that the PENCIL METHOD is the best way to cheat
so yeah daphny you’re thinking DAPHNY track and field is boring you said you were gonna be talking about REALLY AWESOME ARCADE GAMES
well STICK WITH ME
MACH BREAKERS has a lot of the same mechanics as track and field, yes there is button mashing to run fast, but theres ALSO A BUTTON IN THE MIDDLE, AN ACTION BUTTON which changes everything!
ALSO THE CHARACTER SELECTION IS AMAZING
THEY ALL HAVE DIFFERENT STATS! for instance huge man with big belly is slow but strong, tiny man that uses HIS HAIR AS HIS HANDS is super fast but really weak, and of course mr all america is totally average
the game starts pretty track and field, the first level is just MASH MASH TO GO FAST DO IT but then something amazing happens
holy shit NO WONDER ITS CALLED MACH BREAKERS!!!! AND AFTER YOU FINISH THAT LEVEL (drumroll)
SECOND DAY?????? A LEVEL SELECT SCREEN????? (winner of first event gets to pick) WHAT IS HAPPENING?! SOMETHING IS HAPPENING TO THIS GAME?! YES SOMETHING IS HAPPENING, and its freaking AMAZING
as the game progresses too there are levels where you have to PULL GODZILLA THROUGH A BURNING CITY
OR YOU HAVE TO CATCH A FUCKING MISSLE FROM THE SKY AND THEN THROW IT AS FAR AWAY FROM THE CITY AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN SO WE ALL DONT FUCKING DIE
theres a level like the regular running level but theres HUGE BLOCKS OF ICE that you have to fucking BUST THROUGH with the ACTION BUTTON and the animations for people are great, like look at big dude using his tummy to bust that ice down
so ive never actually played this in a proper arcade, just on MAME (which if you dont have youre a bad person and you should fix that immdiately) and its NOT EASY like you have to do things in certain times or beat certain distances, so i credit fed the hell out of it. which is cool becuase IT GETS EASIER THE MORE YOU DIE! i recommend playing the ENTIRE THING
oh on mame the sound is fucked up and echo-ey but honestly i think it ADDS TO THE EXPERIENCE
also losing is hilarious so you should do it a lot!
blonde muscleman turns into a huge crybaby when he loses! dont you just want to hug him???
OH AND THE GAME SUPPORTS UP TO FOUR PLAYERS even though not all events are simultaneous play, and some of the ones that are only support two players at a time!
i think my FAVORITE event in mach breakers is where you have to shoot lasers at giant robots as fast as possible but sometimes cute girls pop up and if you shoot a cute girl you lose points
PLAY MACH BREAKERS! SEE YOU NEXT MONDAY FOR THE SECOND INSTALLMENT OF BLARGHCADE
people always ask me HOW DID YOU END UP ON THE COVER OF A XIU XIU SINGLE so lets talk about TEEN DAPHNY for a little bit! (TL;DR: grew up in the bay area and went to a fuck ton of shows when i was a teen)
so my FIRST ibopa show was when i was 14, it was actually my first EVER live concert! we went because a skinhead punk band that lauren really liked was playing
but ibopa was opening and it was THIS REALLY AWESOME GIRL who i went to highschool with’s birthday, and jamie was playing her leopard coat for her birthday and i was like what is this magical fucking band, what is cinematic death mambo, i need more of it in my life
jamie would introduce band members as ORLANDO FURIOSO and god i dont even remember everyones name!!! i just remember orlando furioso really well because HE WAS SUPER FUCKING TALL AND HOT AND PLAYED BARITONE SAX and ugh he follows me on facebook so he’ll probably read this but I WAS A TEEN OKAY ITS NOT LIKE I EXPECTED TO BANG I JUST HAD A FUCKING ROCK STAR CRUSH SORRY KURT IM SORRY
the second ibopa show i actually got to MEET JAMIE because my friends both had huge crushes on him and i was like OMG LETS BRING A COCONUT BRA AND MAKE HIM WEAR IT and he actually put it over his suit-jacket and let us take a picture, DAMNIT ID TOTALLY POST THE PICTURE but its on a corkboard in oakland, ill post it here when i get my corkboard back
after a different ibopa show jamie stewart gave me and my friends a ride home, and he asked me what my favorite band was, and i said OH I DUNNO THE POGUES (still true) and he SCREAMED and started honking his horn on his silly station wagon in the middle of the freeway
second ibopa show a couple months later AND WE MET OMG
millions of ibopa shows (didnt make it to the last ibopa show but my friend did and got an ibopa drum-head)
one of the first times i actually hung out with jamie outside a show i was like hey lets punch each other lets play punch for punch
and we did it at like EVERY SHOW AFTER THAT he wo uld punch my upper arms until the entire fucking arm from my elbow to my shoulder was bruised, id punch him really fucking hard back too
once while we were punching each other (when his arm would hurt too much hed be like OKAY PUNCH ME IN THE LEG, NO WAIT THIS LEG, OH GOD CHARLIE HORSE)
like i said we punched each other HARD
it was outside this now closed thrift shop in san jose, that would have shows every weekend. we were in the parking lot PUNCH PUNCH PUNCHING AWAY and some people came out and were like PUNCH ME TOO then more people came out and we had this HUGE FUCKING CIRCLE OF KIDS AND BAND MEMBERS PUNCHING EACH OTHER AS HARD AS THEY COULD
it was a beautiful moment
we had to stop playing punch for punch eventually, because he said that his back was killing him when he played guitar, but he really WANTED me to punch him
ALSO HOLY SHIT he just texted me two nights ago and said i FUCKING BROKE HIS RIB but its okay “it was a long time ago, i loved it!”
oh MAN so one time me and lauren and CASPIAN challenged ten in the swear jar to a BOWLING MATCH and if we won they had to write a song about us!
and kurt, jamie and tim (ACCORDIONIST OF TEN IN THE SWEAR JAR/IBOPA YOU KNOW WHY THAT ALBUM IS CALLED ACCORDION SOLO ITS BECAUSE OF HIS FUCKING ACCORDION SOLOS, HES AMAZING TOO he gave us a ride home once and bought TACO BELL) all came and kurt had to show off his THUNDERBALL TECHNIQUE (that he threatened me with via email) which is basically this huge barbarian of a man grabs the heaviest bowling ball the alley has and then THROWS IT UNDERHANDED ONTO THE LANE SO IT COMES CRASHING DOWN WITH THE BIGGEST MOST HORRIFYING SOUND IN THE WORLD and if the thunderclap from the ball hitting the shiny bowling lane doesnt knock the pins over the HURLING 17 POUND CANNONBALL WILL AT LEAST HIT ONE
so yeah that technique is legit
we didnt get a song
ten in the swear jar would play a lot lot of shows with DEERHOOF, another great local band, which is how i became tourettes (when i thought i had tourettes) pals with the drummer HES AMAZING AND SUPER SWEEt i wanna go to a deerhoof show again
he remembers me too! because someone recognized him at a radiohead show and she was like OH YOU’RE THE DEERHOOF DRUMMER IM DAPHNYS FRIEND and he was like OH DAPHNY YEAH I KNOW HER SHES LOUD
XITSJ WAS REALLY AMAZING WHEN THEY PLAYED I LOVE THE VALLEY xiu xiu does it alright live but it’ll never be as good as ten in the swear jar live SORRY PALS YOU MISSED THOSE CONCERTS
xitsj eventually broke up and I REMEMBER THE FIRST XIU XIU SHOW IT WAS JUST JAMIE BY HIMSELF WITH A GUITAR AND A beep boop machine, (at the clothing store we had the huge punch for punch circle at!) doing xitsj covers and a couple original songs
i REMEMBER him playing the sound of the police (who is my friend kenan), suha, and i love the valley
i think knife play is my favorite xiu xiu album because half the songs are from before xiu xiu official even existed. i mean xiu xiu has always existed but BEFORE XIU XIU HAD A NAME YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN ok
oh another really good early xiu xiu show with the original lineup of corey and dr. troll was they OPENED FOR THE SAN JOSE THEATRE PREMIERE OF REQUIEM FOR A DREAM???? i mean if thats not a perfect place for a xiu xiu show i dont know where is
AS FUCKING ALWAYS this post OF COURSE is brought to you by my fucking goddamn patreon! like what you’re reading? wanna see MORE? click the link and give me the dosh! PLEDGE AWAY

puyallup is where the WASHINGTON STATE FAIR IS they have a really obnoxious song, also puyallup is fucking hard to pronounce and it took me like A WEEK to get it right

there wasnt much to do and it was RAINING so i was like fuck it nordstrom has free wifi lets just loiter there and we wander into the LADIES LOUNGE where pami shows me that instead of pads or tampons she just wears diapers on her period
pami is my adopted daughter so im allowed to embarass her on the internet, that is a parents job TO EMBARASS THEIR CHILDREN never forget this
OH SHIT LJ lj is amazing he SNUCK INTO GDC USING A BADGE OF SOMEONE WHO HAD THE SAME NAME AS HIM SO HE COULD MEET HIS VIDEOGAME HEROES apparently im one of them but thats silly, during a dinner after gdc phil was like THIS KID TOUCHED MY HAIR I DONT KNOW WHAT WAS UP WITH HIM and lance told me about touching phils hair LATER and i was like HAHAHAHAH LANCE HE REMMEBERS YOU but look at this birthday game lance made me

BUT WE COULDNT PLAY IT YET! we had to go to OLYMPIA with pals to see MADDOX be the NARRATOR in a super queermo version of peter pan!

yeah so i kept DELAYING THE INEVITABLE like 400 goddamn times but i FINALLY GOT ON A BUS TO PORTLAND TO SPEND A WEEKEND WITH AWESOME LIVEJOURNAL FRIENDS!!!! i met j! THEY DID THE ORIGINAL DESIGN FOR STAR WENCH, so you know all that star wench art by different artists? THEY DREW STAR WENCH FIRST AND ALL STAR WENCHES ARE BASED ON THEIR DESIGN NOW
THEY’RE ALSO VERY SIMILAR TO ME
here we are doing an unboxing video

OH MAN WE PLAYED PC ENGINE ~HORIZONTAL SHOOTERS~
NOT SCHMUPS THAT ISNT A WORD I USE ITS TOO HARD TO SAY AND I MEAN 80 PERCENT OF VIDEOGAMES ARE ABOUT ‘SHOOTING THINGS’ SO HOW DOES THAT EVEN DESCRIBE WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT
and i got to meet a COOL BEARDED DRAGON AND CAT and i fed the bearded dragon so many crickets and accidentally bopped the cat on the head with my luxury vining device, a thing im really good at! i love you animals but my camera just NEEDS TO BE AS CLOSE TO YOUR CUTE LITTLE FACES AS POSSIBLE
we went to POWELLS BOOKS which i knew about because HALF THE BOOKS I ORDER ONLINE COME FROM THERE and it was wayyyyyyyyyy bigger than i imagined and COLOR CODED and i ran ran ran up the stairs to the history section and then RAN RAN RAN to the RUSSIAN HISTORY SECTION and stared and stared and searched nad searched and SCREAMED

BECAUSE I AM A HELPER. I AM A HORRIBLE PERVERTED HELPER.

so i get on my bus to ferry to bus to ferry to bus back to vancouver, and my boltbus was scheduled to leave at 2:15 pm and i got there at 2:20 PM AND RAN AND RAN AND RAN and luckily my bus driver was chatting up a nice lady so he was delayed a bit and i JUMP onto the bus and sit down all panting while everyones looking at me WHATEVER I JUST RODE FOR SIX HOURS I DIDNT WANT TO WAIT IN VANCOUVER FOR ANOTHER FOUR FOR THE SLIGHT *CHANCE* OF GETTING ON THE NEXT BUS but i didnt need to tell anyone that whatever i made it
then we go to seattle, go through customs fine everythings fine and like 20 minutes outside of seattle he PULLS OVER
NOOOO i had had like TWO hours of sleep the previous night, was STARVING and expecting to get into seattle at six for dinner (i spent the last of my cash on a ferry getting a snack to hold me over) and i was just ugh ug hug hugh ugh
so we’re just sitting there in GRIDLOCK TRAFFIC and another greyhound bus drives by, they’re required to help but there was no way that bus was getting from the right lane to us in that traffic
i go outside and talk to the bus driver and apologize for my birthday luck running out (this is the day AFTER my birthday you see)
he explains that the air in the brakes was losing pressure and he had to pull over, that greyhound was sending someone but IT WOULD TAKE A WHILE

ohOH no he picks me up and tries to be all smooth and hands me a bunch of condoms to put in my backpack but im onto his game so i just toss them in nbd and yell IM TIRED IM HUNGRY

2 hours of sleep? pish i start running around and screaming and skipping and hopping and being all daphny again but when we sit down i realize im shaking from not eating but im also NERVOUS so eating is hard hard hard
trying to eat my burger but remembering all the horrible embarrassing things i emailed him and told him via chat and he keeps GIVING ME THAT GLARE THE LOOK THAT MELTS ME shut up i just want to eat this goddamn burger “WHAT DAPHNY IM NOT DOING AAAAAAAAAAANYHTHING” and i narrow my eyes while shoving the burger down my throat

and im looking around the room at all these PICTURES OF RED DRAGONS and im like hey uh
so your fursona is a RED DRAGON HUH and i look back at the screen with this huge red dragon standing over my avatar saying some bullshit fantasy stuff about destiny
he tells me yeah but that hes really not into the furry fandom anymore

my uncle is cool, heres why:
WHEN I WAS 11 AND VISITED VANCOUVER WITH MY MOM he gave me a copy of william kotzwinkle’s DOCTOR RAT. it is still one of my favorite books ever (why would you give it to an 11 year old though?!?!? its all about a rat that has stockholm syndrome in a lab and is trrying to convince all the rats in a lab that everything thats happening to them is IN THE NAME OF PROGRESS. also the even numbered chapters all take place from the POV of an animal thats suffering! its harrowing but also hilarious and i recommend it BUT I ALSO DONT IT WILL MAKE YOU CRY) kotzwinkle also wrote the script for freddy 4! which is my favorite freddy movie!
oh my god this post is getting long IM SO SORRY but im not done!
also my uncle bought me my first silly hat and i just cant stop wearing silly hats now!
HE DID NOT REMEMBER MY VISIT AT ALL. whic h was fine it was a long time ago, i reminded him of all the cool stuff he did for me and hes like “ohhh yeah i remember thinking ‘daphny will like this book and im glad you didnt tell your mom about it”
SO WE TALKED AND TALKED ABOUT FAMILY HISTORY and i met his sons kiaron and niall, who are both into parkour and skateboarding and shit
heres a poem kiaron wrote!
he told me a bunch of cool stuff about my grandma, and made fun of bono for growing up in the rich part of the town hes from, we called my mom on her birthday and she was very happy and surprised that i was in canada at my uncles house!
we walked around a park together and saw a DOG PROTEST it was rad, and my uncle was complaining about dogs and a bulldog ran up to him and was like HEY HEY HEY HEY HEY and hes like “DAMNIT THEY LOVE ME I DONT LOVE THEM WHY DO THEY LOVE ME” and i just laughed at him
his wife used to work for sarah mclaughlin and founded all these really cool music creation for kids resources but her job fell through and shes looking for work again HER NAME IS ANNA AND SHES A REALLY GOOD MOM

CONTENT WARNING: SEXUAL VIOLENCE AND POLICE BRUTALITY
OKAY SO orange is the new black has been getting a lot of flack, and im going to TELL YOU MY EXPERIENCE IN THE WOMENS PRISON INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX and the people who i interacted with within it. this is MY POST MY SITE MY STORY so lets just have that clear.
a while ago i wrote a vice comic with harveyjames about my experiences as a 19 year year old white girl who took too much cough medicine on her 19th birthday and got arrested for stealing videogames and kicking a security guard in the balls, i was young i was stupid i was fucked up and fucked up things were happening aruond me and it got out of hand. i will never deny that shit.
I was raped by a police officer. he will never be punished for this crime, i did not remmember his badge number or remember his name or anything I WAS FUCKED UP AND SCARED AND IT WAS A HORRIBLE SITUATION. thats not what this is about at all, fuck him
the comic is still on vice, and it gets circulated around a bunch and hand waived as SHOCKING OR WHATEVER. before the comic goes full color funtime everything was just as i had written it in my FREAKING LIVEJOURNAL (me and harveyjames were livejouranl friends) and as a gift, as a form of catharsis james wanted to make the comic! he used the image of STALIN RESCUING ME FROM HELL and my harry potter fanfiction to express his appreciation of what i went through and his happiness that im now free
the comic IS SHOCKING. and no i did not actually bite the neck of a police officer and make him bleed. if i did that i would obviously not be here right now
the comic is full of ableist language and sexual violence and ridiculous imagery and hateful speech BECAUSE I WROTE IT A LONG TIME AGO, AND I WAS REGAILING A STORY OF WHEN I WAS FUCKING *NINETEEN YEARS OLD*
also me and harveyjames are thinking of finishing that comic up so people will just shut up about it.
SO ANYWAY the backlash against orange is the new black i witnessed at first was from trans community, but thats because of hte frustration with PRISON SYSTEMS SORTING PEOPLE BY PENIS AND VAGINA. its disgusting, we can agree on that
BUT LOOK WHAT HAPPENED LAVERNE COX IS ON THE COVER OF TIME MAGAZINE! HOLY SHIT, PROGRESS
then more shit i see in new york times articles and shit is like OH MY GOD THAT SHOW IS SO RIDICULOUS AND THATS NOT WHAT ITS FUCKING LIKE IN PRISON I WENT TO PRISON
hey assholes this is where i educate you.
the first season takes place in WOMENS *FEDERAL* PRISON. did you know theres a heirarchy of prison systems? of course you didnt. and im only saying OF COURSE beucase whenever i say i went to jail people ask me about PRISON and i have to constantly correct people on that bit of information! if you already know thjis, good for you hi five we’re pals.
i’ll break it down for you if you dont know however!
county jail: first time offenders, people waiting to go to prison, people on their way back out of jail
state prison: people in state prison are fucked and barely have a chance to get out again
federal prison: people in jail and prison call federal prison CLUB FED. there was a woman when i was in medium security lockup (for violent or dangerous offenders) who was going to federal prison, and she was like “I CANT WAIT TO EXFOLIATE AND DO YOGA AGAIN, UGH”
the first episode of the second season triggered me. i have NEVER BEEN TRIGGERED like that before, im sure i have been in one way or another. but the first episode of the second season mirrored my own experiences so much that i had to call my awful dragon boyfriend and just listen to him talk until my dissasociative episode fucking ended. thanks dragon boyfriend!
it brought back my horrible memories, of being shackled in chains, in a cage. on a bus full of men, who were screaming and hollering at me and throwing me notes with their phone numbers and grabbing their dicks and they were old and scary and tattooed and I WAS IN A FUCKING CAGE ON DISPLAY, not allowed to speak
so maybe like
anyway im gonna go watch more orange is the new black, peace.
before people wanna open up their fucking mouth and discount peoples experiences just SHUT THE FUCK UP AND LISTEN EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE?
okay shutting up now

oh god okay thats horrible dragon boyfriends fault but we dont have to get to him yet
SO OONE OF THE COOLEST FIRST THINGS I DID IN SEATTLE was go to this arcade GAMEWORKS (arcades in public spaces are a rare and wonderful thing, if you have not played competitive or dancing games or takka takka hold the guns shoot the dudes games in a public space TRY AS HARD AS YOU CAN TO DO JUST THIS)
gameworks is cool they have 10 dollar freeplay for like 5 hours every thursday night, its in downtown seattle across the street from THAT CON THAT MUST NOT BE NAMED
yeah! so i met @TRONMAXIMUM , @THUG_MURDER, @PUPPYTUBE , and like three other people who i dont know on twitter yet BUTTHEY WERE COOL we all played games!
i playyyyyyyyyyyyed popn music and my favorite game dance maniax and fighting games and LA MACHINEGUNS which vibrates really hard its super fun
oh yeah OH YEAH @WHATISIAN was there too he made THE FLOOR IS JELLY! we went out to eat at this trash diner OH GOD I HAD THIS HUGE PILE OF GROSS BREAKFAST FOOD SLOSH it was the perfect end to a night though, RICHARD HOFMEIER BOUGHT THAT FOR ME you should read my post about *him* if you havent already RICHARD HURRY UP AND FINISH DAPHNY GAME JEEZ O PETE. just kidding no rush
OHOHOHOOH AND I MET @SAMANTHAZERO and she let us all play SENTRIS which is this badass fucking music game thats noisy as heck adn super colorful and i wanna write about THE GAME ALL ON ITS OWN but she needs to send me a copy
i mean the game doesnt need me to be a hit BUT WHATEVER MOVING ON
oh and fucking @squidlarkin was there too BUT THEY’RE COMING UP LATER HAVE PATIENCE JEEZ
OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH AND THEN I MET MARKUS S. WITHAKAY who i was livejournal friends with like RIGHT WHEN I GOT ON LIVEJOURNAL and we’ve been talking online ever since, and afte rlike what, 13 fucking years we hung out
hes a huge pervert but hes soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ashamed BUT HE LET ME SIT IN HIS VIBRATING CHAIR AND SCREAM AND JIZZ AND EMBARRASS MYSELF IN FRONT OF HIS WHOLE DAMN HOUSE which okay it was really hot
whatd he say
oh yeah he was like “man we’d work together mechanically but im just not attracted to you” WHATEVER THATS HIS LOSS hes getting married anyway
but his house is super cool, his brother is this furry gun nut HES A COW MOOO and his roomate is just some dude who smokes a lot of pot and likes movies but they were ALL REALLY GRACIOUS TO ME markus let me sleep there and use his laundry nad he fed me a whole bunch
we played ARCHIPELAGO which is a game about not pissing off natives or pissing them off and stealing from them until they kill you. ITS A COOL GAME YOU SHOULD TRY IT becuase pissing off natives in real life is a big fucking mistake
his brother kept making racist remarks and i think i slapped him or i at least yelled at him
BUT WHTEVER oh i made vines of markus even though hes like DONT PUT ME ON THE INTENRET well guess what markus fuck you ha ha ha you’re on poopdoggyballs dot com NOW YOU FUCKER
thats him in the blue and his gun nut brother
he actually wanted this one online so i can make that small concession I GUESS
OH I GOT TO MEET AJ AGAIN who i *ALSO* KNOW FROM LIVEJOURNAL, he almost died of a horrible staph infection in his leg once and hes irish and has a really great voice listen to it
THE LAST TIME I WAS IN SEATTLE WE DID HELLA MUSHROOMS and i was yelling down a hole becuase i didnt know about the UNDERGROUND CITY
i saw a hole in teh ground and i was like OH MY GOD ARE YOU TRAPPED DOWN THERE DO YOU NEED ANY HELP I CAN DROP SOME CHANGE OR MAYBE A LIGHTER DOWN THE HOLE BUT I DONT KNOW HOW TO GET TO YOU IM SORRY
oh mushrooms are ridiculous!
THENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN i got to hang out with PAMI! pami is my friend from HIGHSCHOOL we lived together a while ago, shes my adoptive daughter and she just got out of a SHIT SHIT SHIT marriage and is now with someone who fucking loves her and treats her like the amazing fucking person she is
hes cool his name is scott! he drives around and works out a lot and pami deserves him
this is pami telling a story about throwing a rock at someones head
I MET THIS DOG AND ACCUSED HIM OF CRIME he was eating an earplug!!! thats a crime!!!!! DONT EAT EARPLUGS
THEN I MET MICHAEL FITZGERALD WHO IS @tuberqlosis ON TWITTER
he took me to TACOMA and told me about how andy warhol wanted to paint a flower of the tacoma dome. he damn well should have its a ugly grey eyesore, and a shame becuase theres a huge mountain in view of it
markus made me take a vine of him because if he murdered me markus really really wanted to keep my ankle
DIDNT GET MURDERED THOUGH MIKE ACTUALLY RULES
we went to an arcade and the arcade was closed but it didnt matter becuase he showed me THIS SHIT AT A PARK
LOOK AT THAT MOUNTAIN and that cool fucking twin peaks motherfuckin logmill YEAH YEAH GRIND ME UP AND SPIT ME OUT not really i have to write for now
so michael took me to this bar becuase one of the tables is a door and it was right near where we were SUPPOSED to go
and pami and scott show up to hang out again (they live in puyallup)
then MY GREAT FRIENDS MADDOX
oh god maddox
OKAY LETS PREFACE THIS
MADDOX IS JUST
GOD DAMNIT THEY HAVE THIS GLARE AND IT LITERALLY MADE ME JUMP OUT OF MY CHAIR, WALK OUT THE DOOR, WALK INTO ANOTHER DOOR AND RUN INTO THE BATHROOM SCREAMING
OH IT WAS BECUASE MADDOX -AND- DRAGON BOYFRIEND WERE DOUBLE TEAMING ME WITH STARES
it was just too much
AEVEE RULES TOO! AEVEE WRITES ZEAL AND IS @MAMMONMACHINE ON TWITTER AND LIVES ACROSS THE HALL FROM MADDOX tehy are a FUCKING POWER PAIR. did you know that fire emblem is to aevee be as animal crossing is to DAPH A KNEE?
well its true so you should listen to what she says
THEN I WENT TO OLYMPIA TO HANG OUT WITH MADDOX AND AEVEE AND THEIR CAT PRESTON WHO CELEBRATED HIS 13TH BIRTHDAY!!!! we watched jojo!
if you havent heard of jojos bizarre adventure youre doing it wrong, and if you havent watched ANY OF IT EVER youre doing it TRIPLE WRONG
look at this shit
oh that voice acting is me, DID YOU KNOW IVE DONE VOICE ACTING IN *VIDEOGAMES* im loud and proud and you can always hire me to yell more! WAIT I SAID ID STOP PLUGGING MYSELF
hehehehe OH MY GOD DAPHNY GET YOUR MIND OUT OF THE GUTTER
im such a trubbish
then i lost another tooth! LOOK OUT IM SPITTING UP BLOOD its okay im excited for when i fix my teeth and have a huge metal grill and bite people, but only if they consent to it of course
OH WELL im gonna wrap this leg of my trip up with dragon boyfriend i guess!
AND THEN I WAS LIKE WHO WANTS TO FUCKING HANG OUT and some nerd with a bald man avatar shows up on twitter and is like ‘me i wanna hang out’
and im like DO YOU LOOK LIKE YOUR AVATAR
and he just said “hmm.”
and i was like OH MY GOD ARE YOU HITTING ON ME WHAT THE FUCK and he said no
adn then i was like OKAY WELL IM THE ONE WITH A HAT THAT LOOKS LIKE MY AVATAR MEET ME IN THE MIDDLE BECAUSE ITS A FAR WALK and we met outside some target and he said that my voice was a lot higher pitched than what he imagined it to be
AND IM LIKE NO WHAT IM THE MOST SHRILL HOW HAVE YOU NOT SEEN VIDEOS OF ME ON THE INTENRET JEEZ IM DAPHNY
and hes the editor in chief for some dumb eve website and has been involved with tigsource for a while
LIKE HES BASICALLY A HUGE NERD
and he showed me trailer park boys and caught on to my obsession with looking at houndstooh (I GET REALLY TURNED ON BY CERTAIN PATTERNS)
and i wriggled and yelled a lot and it was time for bed so he was like YOU CAN SLEEP IN MY BED IF YOU WANT and im like WELL IM NOT SLEEPING ON THE FLOOR
which was nice of him! cuz he never met me! i could be A MURDERER but i guess ive met a lot of people from the internet, so most people know that im harmless UNLESS YOU MAKE ME MAD THEN IM REALLY OUT OF CONTROL so dont make me mad, im doing my best not to get mad anymore anyway
BUT YEAH uh it was kind of accidental???? like i just see boners and am like GIMMIE GIMMIE and he was into it and OH OH OH I MADE HIM DO A DARKSIDEPHYL impression
hes basically ridiculous, but hes incredibly patient with me which is a rare quality in people!! i mean he could get fed up with me someday but im not really worried about it! cuz we have a safeword and i can use it whenever i want *wiggles butt*
OH HE DRINKS A LOT OF FUCKING TEA but me and pami helped clean up his apartment and i yelled at him STOP FUCKING FEELING BAD FOR ME DOING YOUR DISHES JESUS CHRIST IT TURNS ME ON DONT YOU GET IT
i think he gets it now! but AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH okay okay okay im done with this post! BUT IM NOT DONE WITH MY TRIP i think it’ll be in TWO MORE installments
