||My Little Shitstorm
Posted on February 25th, 2012
|Wow. That last hour or so was a bit different than expected.
Long story short: in the episode "The Last Roundup", Rainbow Dash calls a gray pegasus "Derpy", which is her fanon name. This episode vanished from iTunes suddenly, and when it returned today this section of the episode was re-dubbed clumsily, giving Derpy a new voice and removing the mention of her name.
The fandom's rallying cry has always been "Love and Tolerate", but MAN were the reactions hostile!
Things are calming down, mainly because folks are going to bed. This isn't over yet I don't think. It reminds me of the PR mess that was the Transformer named Spastic, just with a lot more anger.
Most of the day was spent plugging along in an attempt to get the blog scripts up and running worth something. In the end I managed to make some headway; the RSS feed system and the administration pages are all that's left.
Part of the evening was spent playing Borderlands. The other part was spent playing around with some new goodies from DAZ's store. You see, I was sent a voucher for "being such a good customer". In other words, they want more of my money. This voucher couldn't be used on its own (naturally), so I picked up a few things. Not a major purchase, but that's a few things off the wishlist.
Have something utterly adorable to offset the mess above.
