Apparently BZPower staff is NATSI COMUNESTS so he wants to take them down or something? idk.
I went into the tag to find a good example of exactly what you mentioned but got distracted by the instructions for how to build a Fatoran and drama about what should or should not be in the tag.
I think we’ve already reblogged several of their posts, all with a comment along the lines of “I still have no idea what is going on with this blog”
A++++ satire would laugh again
Judging by the succinct wording and overall “lazy” demeanor, I’d say holsety.
(SPEAKING OF WHOM: the general “instructions” on the submit page itself were me iirc, but that’s probably not what you were asking after. the formal terms of submission document linked to in the submit box is just a global tumblr thing, the same on every tumblr blog with a submit box; we have pretty much nothing to do with those)
that’s exactly what we think of it
I guess I’ll spell it out: we don’t particularly care. we’re neutral about its existence, just like we’re neutral about every other part of BZP. hilaribad stuff happens there, but come on, where doesn’t it happen on BZP?
it sure is a forum that exists, that much is certain
Clearly you never read Toilet Tahi.
the only post-2006 time he was even vaguely tolerable was Destiny War
at any point after that NOPE
the plot thickens
man I remember back in the day when ArtIII had a bit of a pretentious snobbery phase, from which I don’t think it ever recovered
I should admit that “pretentious little BZP writing club” wasn’t really based on serious or extensive observation of them or the broader BZP Library culture; the full extent of my exposure is their blogs, the main Ambage topic and occasionally taking a look at some of their (mostly Velox, Kraggh and Zarayna’s) stories (which I admit, pretentiousness aside, certainly aren’t the most awful things I’ve ever seen)
either way, consider my curiosity piqued. I’ve already paid the Library Discussion Topic a brief visit (that’s actually how I found the book), though I wasn’t really looking that hard and at the end of the day I’m not ALL UP IN BZP’s library culture, so odds are I’ll be missing all the cues about this stuff
(side note: these guys fap over Les Misérables so much that they’ve pretty much completely ruined what I’m sure is a perfectly good movie for me and I can’t take it seriously anymore :( )
Appealing to children, I guess. I’ve only seen the Ninjago show, and I know it’s campy and cringe-worthy, but hey, whatever sells the toys, i guess.
[quick edit by holsety: I’ve only ever seen one episode of Ninjago, but it was so far superior to the HF TV show it’s not funny; it’s not exactly something I’d go out of my way to watch regularly, but I’ve seen worse… and that worse is the Chima show. seriously what happened :( ]
I don’t know about the other mods, but I don’t think it’s worth the digital ink it’s printed on. I’m not paying 99 cents to read that horseshit.
[very quick edit by holsety: remember it’s not just Velox’s book: some decent people like Kakaru also had a hand in it by the look of it. still couldn’t be fucked to try it, but then again I almost never do online purchases. maybe Lime will; dude’s all about ironic purchases]
(EDIT BY LIME: While I am in fact “all about ironic purchases”, something tells me this won’t really be bad enough to justify an ironic purchase. Let’s be realistic here, it’s probably pretty mediocre but not really laughably awful. Also I kind of have like no money right now so there’s that
I mean I guess the Peach 00 stuff might be amusingly bad enough to justify a purchase, if she’s even involved with this. I don’t even know if she’s part of the Ambage, I’m just kind of assuming that this mysterious organization includes like every pretentious BZP writer ever. But if Danger Close was ever published in book form I would totally buy the hell out of it)
such is the price of a cheap laugh
(but seriously we’ll probably get bored of it and change it back eventually. I admit things which cripple the style of the blog itself have never really been something we’ve thought about, given we mostly assume people just read us through their tumblr dashboards)
I’m assuming you mean lunacyoflegomanvalues, in which case yes, it’s in our About Us page
What’s with the name of the blog?
“The Lunacy of LEGOman Values” is derived from the work of one Vezon the Piraka, a former member of BZPower reviled for his despicable treatment of other members and his gratuitously racist, Nazi-laden and generally shitty sprite comic work. The name itself is a humourous take on his last sprite comic work, “The Lunacy of Earthman Values”, which was what ultimately got him banned from BZP (he still knocks around deviantART with it, but people just ignore him now).
It actually took a while to come up with that, and every other name we thought of was either terrible in general or a failed attempt at being funny.
Incidentally, the title “relentless quest for HATE DESPAIR” is just another VTP joke. Arguably it’s the better of the two we’ve used here.
