Ewwww check out the video link..  
I saw this on the tv yesterday and recorded it.. OMG.... SO GROSS!!!!!!
And I thought that I'd seen messy apartments......
That's the most disgusting thing that I've EVER seen!! And she LIVED in that!! Whoa, how.. I mean really... HOW can you?!?! O.o Cockroaches... SO MANY COCKROACHES.. I have to admit, how she takes a bath is interesting, though.. O.o But gross...

In other other news.... I have been working on my story a lot so that I can start storyboarding. I sketched a bit, but I need to get the story down before I lay anything out. I'm going to try a short story for practice! First, I sketched a little something to test out on the new paper. Just a poster-ish image for a friend, is all. It should be awesome! I wonder how I will be at backgrounds. I haven't drawn anything like that in a long time!!

In other other news..
I know she credits me, but she didn't ASK to repost them... *sigh*
Shoganeina......... -_-;; (I have nothing against most of you... but why is it almost always Chinese fans that repost things without asking? Images, lyrics, etc...)

i think when it comes to chinese fans they either
a) don't really understand about crediting/taking lyrics/pics/scans/etc from another person/website or
b) even in the off chance that they understand completely everything regarding crediting and such, they just don't care.

most likely i think it's 'a' because after being in china this past summer i know that since internet and even home computers are rather a new thing there, they're consciousness for this "netiquette" that we've come up with is extremely on low. only in my cousins houses did they even have computers and that's only cuz my cousins are a bit younger and thus are into this technology era. a lot of the ppl i met did't have computers/internet and they go to internet cafe for their dose of net, so they really don't have the time to get used to all the rules that we just feel are common sense. plus there's always the issue of language. i'd doubt they can understand 100% what's written (heck i can't even claim i understand 100% what's written sometimes and i've lived in N America for 12 yrs), and so once it gets to nitty gritty stuff about posting other ppl's things (scans/pics/lyrics) they probably skip it cuz there's so much text to go through or they get a general idea but not specifically each rule. and unlike jap fans, they don't have a problem with posting pics and stuff online. that's what i feel anyway.

oh, and i forgot to mention in regards to ur comment about her being able to navigate through lj hence proving her english can't be that bad. lj is also available in chinese and a few other languages (as i found out when i tried to log on to my account through my cousin's computer in beijing...took me forever to find out how to switch it to english >.<) so it's possible to to use lj without knowing any english what-so-ever.

I meant that by knowing enough to navigate through my pages, she knew enough to look for the lyrics that I'd posted in the middle of everything else. I don't even think that I put the lyrics in a post that had any pictures, so she'd have to have known a little bit of english to click on the right link unless she clicked on EVERYTHING. And even then, she'd have to have known how to read a little bit, because how would she have known that it was Nagayan's?

It's probably a mixture of a and b. Hopefully eventually they'll grow out of it and understand that they can't just do what they want with pictures and writings without offending other people.

well, in regards to 'b'...we are talking about one of the biggest bootlegging countries in any media aspect from dvds to cds. i even heard that it's extremely extremely, like, mainstream-common to buy bootleg copies of windows and install it themselves into new computers since that's cheaper than buying computers with windows already installed like we usually do here (can we even buy computers without windows already installed unless it's a mac??). so with that in mind it's gonna be hard to get them to follow re-posting rules for pictures and lyrics, esp with the language barrier.

if u'd like i can write up a sentence or two's blurb in chinese asking them to consult u before reposting, or not repost at all. then at least if u find them still doing it they can't use language as an excuse.

That would be awesome!! Can you do it please? ^^ I'll put it in my user info. =D

The whole bootlegging thing is what I was going to say. I'm Chinese too, and even though bootlegs can be convenient and cheap and an easy way to get into a fandom, it's a really bad influence on the whole etiquette of sharing stuff. Nya, it's one of those double-edged things. X_X
