Apparently on the 19th, there's a new season/server starting. We're waiting on what the second news will be.

My guess? New members for new server/season.

Edit - Okay, my guess was right. Time to add a Sevadus tag!

Fanfic Guilt

Lately I've been experiencing this strange upset. I've labeled it as 'fanfic guilt'. The first place I put this ramble was on tumblr, so I'll copy/paste it here (under the cut). If you want to see the tumblr version, it's here.

Ramblings are below. It's pretty long, because it seems I'm not very good in condensing thoughts into less than 500 words.

So is it just me, or are more things relating to The Salad Stand (like addressing concerns and just outright talking to one another) happening in other places (like Tumblr and Skype and whatever else I'm forgetting) and less is happening here?

I don't know, I just wanted to point that out (but seriously, it's been forever since we've had a Sunday Chat).

So, in light of recent events, I feel the need to present to you all my take on this community, and fan communities in general.

This is rather lengthy, so I will be adding in a cut tag.

And I would very much appreciate if any lurking MindCrackers would read this. It's not something I think anyone here usually requests, but if nobody else reads this, I would like for it to be you guys.

Read more... )

So there you have it. That's my take on things. I've said everything I feel needs saying, but feel free to ask me questions.

I love you all, Salad members and Mindcrackers alike.

-That was the most amazing podcast ever recorded.

-We do indeed have some very special lurkers, like I suspected for some time.

-I feel like we need something like in the subreddit header where it has the yellow text that says snappy things like "Check out Beef's legs!" Only ours would say, "isn't much different than the subreddit" -Guude

-After being outed in the podcast and officially acknowledged by Guude there, I actually feel kind of invincible. I don't mind as much when we get linked on the subreddit, and I no longer fear the wrath of trolls. Not to mention there's mostly valid discussion about shipping and fic writing in the reddit podcast thread. No blind hatred anywhere.

-I found this thing called Drabble Matic, which is essentially ad libs with fanfic. With everything that's happened recently I decided to do one with Guude and Wes from the podcast, and filled in the rest of the blanks with the most ridiculous, flowery words I could think of.

Well THAT was a plot twist )

Edit: In other news, I made a new icon. Dunno if I'm entirely happy with it. It was surprisingly hard to find a good picture of a mining turtle. I had to pull this from one of Guude's videos.

Because it's been so dead around here lately, have a random thought dump!

Orange Wool is back, eeee! And their parade of dirty-ish jokes just marches on. But before that in GMM, MC mentions how he's waiting around for Millbee to get off FTB so they can record Orange Wool, and it seemed kinda sweet for some reason, especially since his attempted trick for Trickery Thursday was going to be on Millbee, until he died and gave up.

Slightly older news, but how about that podcast? It's been a while since we had one of those too. I remember the part that made me laugh the most was Beef coming dangerously close to calling MC attractive, when talking about the infamous Girl's Night video.

Elsewhere, Vechs continues to have a field day with the recent additions, especially the hoppers, and I continue to find his enthusiasm for massive walls of hopper fueled death somewhere between terrifying and oddly adorable. And yes, the Twitter exchanges between him and Dinnerbone. <3

Beef and Etho

Any of you watch the Team Canada prank just pulled? I won't spoil it for anyone, but it has some really fun Beef and Etho interaction. Nothing obviously flirty like with Beef/Pause or Pause/anyone, but there are definitely some moments, especially with Beef directing Etho around, and Etho sort of mind-reading and knowing what Beef wants before Beef says so. And just other playful banter that we don't usually get sometimes. These two do a lot of pranking together, but they don't tend to spend a ton of time together, and they seem rather compatible. I'd love to see them do more together.

So some of the things I've been watching today.

Kurt's been wandering around the server and showing what he's been up to in the arena village. Turns out he didn't record the mini prank he did on Bdubs, and he expresses disappointment that Bdubs discovered it from the side and not by falling in. :P I also like that he doesn't always go through the nether when traveling between locations. To me, it's really interesting seeing the overworld terrain between places and gauging how close some of these things are.

Guude has his first video after his return. Similar to Kurt, he is surprised to not find any pranks waiting for him from Zisteau (what happened to that plan? I was looking forward to the pigman striking again, but maybe the prank is actually the lack of pranks?). He also apparently finds Baj rather attractive, after their meetup in London. So now we have the entirety of Nancy Drew being shippable material for Guude.

Also Guude related, he has footage from his trip! Featuring BTC as Etho in disguise, Jesus Kurt, Eepblah and Genny being French, Van dancing Thriller, and much much more.

And of course there's VintagePause back in Black Desert 2, but there's already a whole post on that.

So, in the recent B-Team casino episode, GenerikB and Bdubs decide to keep Beef's castle chapel so they can conduct weddings. GenerikB suggests marrying Beef/Pause and Doc/Anderz, which amused the heck out of me:

Generik: "For the quickie-wed, you know, for the love birds, like Pause and Beef can go get married here."
BdoubleO: "Yeah, yeah! I like it."
Generik: "I mean, Shree can wear a dress."
Bdubs: "Mm. Of course."
Generik: Doc and AnderZEL can have a little wedding."
Bdubs: "True."

Time stamp on Bdubs' video.

They also talk about spending the night together (IRL) at GenerikB's house before they head to Minecon, which... INTERESTING. They talk about doing things together that they could only do physically together...

Also, in today's podcast, there's a lot of discussion about gay LPers, which I thought was of interest to the community since we've discussed that recently. Sadly, it's a more serious topic that sort of gets joked-over. There are a few times I thought someone was going to say something good and then someone made a joke/interrupted and it was lost. Still thought it was worth mentioning here in case people wanted to have any sort of discussion about it.

EDIT: We need an AnderZEL tag, and maybe a podcast one?

  • COBBLE HATERS IS BACK LET ME SOB IN JOY. Even if Pakratt is incapable of proper rendering and put it up a day early. It's not overtly shippy - they'll never be OOG or whatever - but they know each other SO WELL and gel so nicely and eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. *squishes them*
  • Speaking of MC co-op, ORAAAAAAANGE WOOOOOOOOOOOL! This "previously on" thing is BRILLIANT. <3 OH MY GOD THEY USED TANGERINE CASHMERE FOR THE INTRO OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 Is my flair showing? MC took his shoes off to be in Woolopolis (NO SHOES)! They are flinging references at each other constantly and it's wonderful. ...and I am so going to experiment with multi-track audio and make an awesome a capella Orange Wool intro. On top of everything else you want to do? Quiet, you. Also that discussion where Millbee exaggerated so MC would sound "so intimidating" and Millbee himself would sound "so fragile" was very...very strange. In an awesome way. There's a lot of, uh, interesting sounds this episode as well >.>
  • Genny confirms that the trial will come out while I'm commuting. Guess I know what I'm doing while digging into a mountain when I get home, I guess? What POV do you think I should watch first?

  • Mod, why haven't you worked on either of your fanfics nor done your Yuletide nomination yet? It's October and registration isn't even open for that thing you've been freaking out about. Stop slacking. Speaking of, [personal profile] placeblocks nominated Guude, Bdubs, Kurt, and Beef. I'm planning to nom MC, Nebs, Zisteau, and Pause in light of that; feel free to fill in extra blanks accordingly if you are participating.
  • If you were to write an fannish/ship-friendly (though not necessarily ship-emphasizing) introduction to Mindcrack, what would you say? What videos would you link? How would you explain the appeal of these guys, their video content, and their chemistry?
  • Kurt says "Damnit, @zisteau, now look at what you made me purchase!" while talking fancy coffee. Genny attempts (succeeds, perhaps?) at upstaging them both. And the mod still prefers old-school cheapsake moka pots, because her partner is Cuban and they buy kitchen-y things from thrift stores.
  • Speaking of Zisteau on twitter, I may or may not have teared up when I found out that creepers griefed the Lens. SO AWFUL.
  • Supposed the trial is coming out today. OOOOOOOH. Watch it come out while I'm commuting, though. :(
  • The spontaneous fight after the Wither is like...the most ridiculously terratorial thing I've seen in a while in a good way. It's like all of the frustration from UHC/Death Games bundled into chaos and it's kind of amazing. Also, something about proud Nebris asking for advice from Pause to kill Etho gives me some very, very strange feels.

Timestamp for posterity: the discussion of Guude sleeping well for the first time in a long time. FEELS. After our discussion of Guude's exhaustion and what OOG is and isn't, I want...something on this. Anything. <3

Today's thoughts

- Guude some what recently commented on a "new" downvoted Reddit thread asking about Etho going to Minecon with something akin to, "He's not going, not even in secret. Just accept it." It got me wondering--why do you think he's content to defend Etho's decision not to go to Minecon, but has been harboring on Beef to attend for months, even going so far as to threaten to buy him a Minecon ticket? True Nancy Drew union, or is there some deep dark secret Etho's hiding from us all?

- While catting with [personal profile] mindcrack_love earlier, we came to the topic of religion. It's somewhat well-known Guude is a non-believer and BDubs is a believer, but I couldn't immediately produce videos to prove either. Can any of you recall times Guude's gone on about religion, or anything BDubs has said? (I remember Guude once saying he couldn't make an event because he had to go to church.) And while on the topic, does their religious stance translate into your interpretations of their Minecraft characters, and if so, how? Given Pakratt's display of Christian symbolism in his skin and builds, I personally feel like there must be some sort of religion in Minecraftia, even if it's a one-man religion, but I'm atheist myself and I've never really thought about it. I figure it might be an interesting topic...

- What does everyone think of the idea of women eventually joining Mindcrack? In general I really would love to see some women on the server because I want to see more females represented in gaming, and as much as I love the slash, it makes me sad to see such an awesome community full of only men. On the other hand, I really do worry that it might somehow change the way the guys play or act. I'm guessing Guude won't let anyone on that doesn't fit, so it's probably an unfounded fear, but I do find myself still sometimes worrying about it. Is that horrible of me? I feel like such a hypocrite, but other than occasionally popping into a Sixelona stream, I don't watch any women LPers. (Some of it is the culture that crops up around them. I can't stand all the fanboys mindlessly fawning over the fact that ZOMG GURLS and their disgusting/embarrassing comments. That's something I'd really hate seeing brought over to Mindcrack. I'd want a female gamer who was popular because she's entertaining, not because she's female.) Perhaps this doesn't really fit the vibe of the community, so feel free to ignore.

aka the one where a threat against three_two's life becomes something else entirely: start here and just keep listening to the conversation.

...I'm not sorry about all of these one line posts.

Today in Genny's Hermitcraft video, he announced that once the Minecon ticket shenanigans settle, he is staying in the same hotel room as Bdubs, Kurt, and Juicetra.

Just the various Mindcrack related thoughts on my mind today.

-We learn in Beef's video that apparently everyone in his past is named Joe. Interesting tidbit to keep in mind?

-Pakratt takes a stab at the "McGamer" gag by naming his food court after him, golden M and all. And yet on the sign he uses the proper capitalization.

-I neglected to notice yesterday amid the prank drama that Millbee had posted an application to join the B Team, hours before the prank videos went live. I'm not sure how to interpret this considering the accidental sheep slaying and Millbee's response tweets. Anyone else have new thoughts on the matter?

-I made my first fanart, as per kissingpigmen's suggestion.

-As further evidence that this place has already corrupted my mind beyond repair, I keep having Kurt/Zisteau thoughts for no particular reason, and I'm not even convinced I should be worried anymore. Also, do you guys do those funny portmanteau ship names? I've been calling this one Kursteau in my head.

Well, shit. Have you guys seen GenerikB or Pause's latest video? I won't spoil it for you, but it definitely fits with some of the discussion we've been having, and... also basically illuminates just how damn shippy this fandom is.

Pause's reaction: http://youtu.be/6z7yEduJ8N0
Genny's set up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IC-TkYl9T74


(Spoilers in comments, watch at least Pause's short video first!)
