think before you speak
The campaign itself, is a great idea. I can't imagine the constant torment that teenagers in these types of situations go through. But, the posters themselves are (even if meant to be ironic) are really just bashing other stereotypes.
The feeling I get from these is; it's okay to make the remark about the gamer kid, but don't ever make a similar statement about a gay/lesbian/transexual, etc. I understand, that's NOT the idea, but essentially the campaign is using double-negative methods to attempt a positive outcome.
The dictionary style posters are just as bad. Instead of trying to be moderately humorous, the creators could have just left the actual definition on a poster. To me, knowing a faggot represents a bundle of sticks is far more destructive to such a hurtful slur than the rest of the poster, but the message is lost in the translation.
The problem with campaigns like this, is they alienate the group they are trying to help. Every demographic is picked on by one another in school, to be honest I don't know anyone who never had a problem with someone in their school years. However, the same people that picked on me are now the guys I go drinking with.
Just a thought, as incoherent as it came out.
thar be posts 'ere
Liam and I have discussed this countless times, and I know Ollie was on it as well. Kevin Smith is a highly over-rated director, but his Q&A Sessions are awesome and hilarious. Some of it even makes it to his movies. My favourite, and most often used quote comes from him: There is only one return; and it ain't of the King it's of the Jedi!
We're enjoying a near 40C heat wave this week, I say enjoying because it's better then the -40C cold snap we will get in about 6 months.
The AceKard2 is my new favourite piece of equipment. For $12 (plus free shipping at the link) you can't go wrong. I've got a 2GB MicroSD Card in mine and loaded about 10 games without filling it. Nintendo DS Roms are easy enough to find.
I've been trying to get my Blackberry on IRC for two weeks. But my company's IT Policy won't let me run a program such as an IRC Client on the 'Berry, does anyone know a WAP/Web Based IRC client that will run on a Blackberry 8700(R)? eBuddy claims to support IRC, but the mobile version lacks the feature.
Lastly, everyone should change their Facebook language to English (Pirate) for a good lolz.
