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!!!

Why not? What does your friend do to show his/her support?

Edit: Maybe we should move this to the politics thread. I genuinely find this interesting.

The real purpose of elections is to make the people hate each other more than they hate their government.

Re: Post life tips here

My tip: If you are in a friendzone, ask that person out using the word "date". You'll make that clear than your interes is romantic and it's less risky than declaring your eternal love. It's also possible that your friend will start to see you more romantically after hearing that. If you were rejected, treat this as a feedback. Asking someone out doesn't destroy the possibility of being friends for ever, so no excuses like "I don't want to ruin our friendship". Hope someone finds that useful. emot-smile

From now on, I'll reward myself with this virtual etc-love etc-love etc-love etc-love for being nice and not changing the subject. We'll see. emot-wink

Re: Post life tips here

You'd think I'd have learned this ages ago, but I'm getting to a point where when arguments come up, especially online with people I don't know, I'm trying to ask myself before I get embroiled in the argument, if I can check primary sources. Can I look up the law? The quote? Can I check with an expert or someone actually involved?

And, if I can, and the other side of the argument can't acknowledge those primary sources... I'm out. There's no point in continuing it.

We're all too old, and life is too short, to be arguing with people who won't acknowledge primary or expert sources.

Ugh, this.

Life tip from my dead auntie when asked whether her life had been a happy one:

Life isn't happy or sad, really. It's about moments. Pay attention to those. You'll know them when you experience them.

And my addition to that:

Don't waste the moment trying to document it. You won't need the selfie, Facebook post, or whatever else. Don't try to plan or expect them. It won't be things like your grad, or your wedding.
