Gougai! Gougai!

Anime News Network asked Gio & Yasha to write an article about Utena, Empty Movement, and they totally called us superfans, omg. Think of it as a belated Valentine's to Utena, its fandom, and the excellent friendships we've made along the way. 20 Years of Utena Fandom with the Ultimate Superfans!!!

Geegaw is severely underutilized today and this must be fixed.

Very fucken awesome.

I also think fucklaudery should be used more, but that's not really a word in the dictionary.

Hoopla comes from the French "Houp-La!" basically meaning "Get over there, brat!" It was usually mothers yelling that at their kids, back in the day.

Neat, Jamie.

Chucklefuck, it seems like a good blend of words.

random question, does anyone know of a word that means both surprised and appalled or intrigued and appalled; I need to know becuase I feel this way so much.

Also, how would you use "jamie" in a sentence? I'm unfamiliar with that slang.

Re: Words That Need to Be Used More

Frippery.

I've only seen it once before, and that was in a fanfic. Had to look its definition up, something I normally don't have to do with words. Too few people I know are aware of it, let alone actually use it.

You don't mean Ernest, do you? Such a charming fellow, really... Mr. Wilde was a wonderful playwright, indeed, if not a wee bit predictable. Ah, the rapturous embrace of literature.
