What people seem to actually be sick of is the way the industry works, and that Aya is working within that framework even after having violated the doll-like image the industry tries to maintain for morons. People are just angry at the house of cards tumbling down, and that she is still ‘alive’ amidst the ruins, and don’t understand why.

You complain about her getting attention. If you’ve ever lived a life where you’re being scrutinized by people, you would have a clue in the world that that is not ‘attention’ that any sane human being wants. It’s thrust upon you, especially when there is nowhere that you can escape it.

You complain about her twitters being for attention… but have you had a tumor before? I have… you kind of want to talk to someone about it if there’s even a suspicion. And if a taxi driver kidnaps you? Yeah, I’d imagine that’d be an ordeal for a celebrity woman. If you believe she lied about it, that’s another issue entirely, but I have no real reason to assume she did.

If she is lonely enough that the only people she felt she could express how scared she was was to her twitter followers, she gets my sympathy. If you can say something like ‘she should get some friends’ then you know nothing about what friends can become when you gain celebrity. Your life changes, as does your relationship to them. It takes very, very strong bonds to survive that. Rock stars, actors, and various A and B-list celebrities haven’t ended up in rehab or killing themselves because it’s just the ‘way it is.’ Do you have any idea how lonely it is to be surrounded by people who love you, but know absolutely nothing about you, nor really care?

That is why people will still talk about her reasonably. They have perspective. She did roles that we love, made music we enjoyed, and we’re not liking her to spite the people who don’t like her, regardless of what those morons think.

    I have to disagree, the context of it is something that puts it in high contrast to the excitement of the other shots so looks a bit ridiculous admittedly. When I saw Distant Worlds at Otakon a few years back, as soon as a real harp began playing the Final Fantasy chords in an auditorium packed with people, with a live professional orchestra playing something I had been made fun of for my young life as nintendo freak, loser and so on just because I liked games before it became the norm, I began …

  • Comiket 89 Day 1 Braves The Cold:
    Those of us in Phoenix, Arizona are comfortable at around 80-90F (26-32oC) due to no humidity in the desert, however due to the same reason, if there is no sun directly on you, temperatures drop immediately in the shade or when the sun sets, and our nights hit snow-level temperatures, bouncing off of freezing just barely. But if it does drop below 70, the chill is near-immediate to us and compounds pretty quickly. That said, we love seeing people who visit and try to handle the 110oF (45oC) in …
