So long, and thanks for all the sushi...
Between the selling of permanent accounts cheapening everything and the updated draconian TOS, I've had it with LJ. Just as people predicted on /. when it first happened, Six Apart has ruined things.

I was thinking of using a /. journal, MSN space, MySpace blog, Blogspot, or my own MT. But thanks to windexcowboy, I'm on Yahoo 360, so I'll just use that. If you want to keep on reading my journal, just add kingfox360 to your friends page.

And finally, I don't think I'm leaving LJ anytime soon. C'mon, why the hell would I do that? In all seriousness, I would like your attention for a moment. Sorry to resort to the immature tactic. Maybe if I had done this more Pacific Coasters would have talked to me about my trip. But this is something bigger than a trek all over the other coast. Much bigger.

In August of 1996, I began a journey, a quest for a degree. Despite many setbacks, both from my own failings and from external sources, this journey's end is in sight. After having my funding cut, dropping out, getting hired to take classes, being told I couldn't take classes, and starting up the degree program again - I'm on the home stretch. In two years, assuming everything goes as planned, I'll be graduating. Only ten and a half years after my first day of class.

So, for something ten and a half years in the making, I think a giant party is in order. Beyond naked sushi, beyond anything I've done before. A giant party. I would like to throw some serious money into this, renting out a place, and inviting everyone I've ever had contact with during my college career. Maybe renting the Frying Pan in NYC, though I might have to charge at the door or sell a car to do that. I don't know.

So far I've talked with a few people about this. Maybe two naked women covered in sushi instead of one? _yggdrasil suggested that every woman dress up like a Catholic schoolgirl for some reason. Maybe hold it at a giant hall out in the woods? I'm open for ideas. I only know two things:
  1. I want to sit in a throne of some sort during the event.
  2. I want sushi present.
Other than that, suggest away!

Speaking of things coming to an end, Pirate Bay shut down! Or is it?

You suckered me in with something that affected me personally and then slapped me across my delicate features with your talk of mighty parties that I can’t attend.

You are a big doody-head, Russell.

You know what's really sad? I almost didn't do it, remembering your order for me never to do it again, an order I agreed to. I am a supreme asshat.

But really, you should attend. Two years is an awful long time to plan a way to get here. If I'm living in the same place, I've got a fold-out couch! hotbeatz has friends in Brooklyn!

I think everyone that goes to your party should have to delete their livejournal at exactly midnight EST.

Also I think there should be kool-aid.

That would be awesome! A digital Jonestown!

Your tactics are low, deceitful and nasty. Here am I reading like a fiend. Good job. :)

If I were going to throw a huge party, I'd go Labyrinth style; rent a ballroom a famous band and require massive costumes. Sumfin like that. That's the fist thing comes to my mind when I hear "big party" adn "lots of money" in adjacent sentences.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: June 1st, 2005 07:17 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
Lots of money is also relative, for the purpose of this party. A famous band would be out of the question, but I have some musician friends that I might want to hire in some capacity, though then they can't really enjoy the party.

I think a couple of DJs might be my best option.

I've been meaning to have dewgirl visit her relatives near Jersey and then I'd come hand out with you.

I'd finally get to play some Halo 2 live...this seems awesome, if still a ways off...can't wait!

Good use of icon

If/when you do come out here, you will of course have to drive by the Bada Bing. It's between the_boke and jenniever's hometown, so I got to drive past it a couple of times recently.

Halo 2? In two years, I think we'll be playing Halo 3. If you want to play Halo 2 live, you should come out here earlier.

What's wrong with selling permanent accounts?
kingfox From: kingfox Date: June 1st, 2005 07:23 pm (UTC) (Hard link)


I was joshing, why would I leave LJ?

Yeah, it does cheapen mine. I'm no longer as cool and unique (for having $100 during their round of server upgrades a couple of years ago), but my life should consist of more than LJ cred.

At least this means a few less ``when wil u guyz sell more perm accounts???!1123.1415?'' in every single fucking news entry.

I almost got mad when I found out you weren't deleting. -_-

I really will stop crying wolf.

fantastic planet

I would say a giant party out in the woods. But if it is giant, and it will be, that could be risky. Renting out a place is a good idea. I suggest a place where anyone can come dressed up as whatever they like (the more catholic school girls the better) or naked...in fact anyone who will lay down naked and let us eat sushi off of them should be admitted for free. Definitely charge. Plan out your soundtrack. Have some stage acts ready, like Doug doing a roast of you or something as an opener. But I think if you really want it to be a giant party, one that no one will ever forget, you gotta go with the orgy at the end. pruds can leave and the doors can be locked. mind-altering substances will be provided for any who choose. rules will be preestablished. i picture that scene in Fantastic Planet, you know the one.

Ha! I didn't fall for it this time. Fool me once...

Anyway, something with naked women would be good.

Hire as many of the Iron Chefs as you can find to cook for us. If you manage that, I'll bring the Japanese translator.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: June 3rd, 2005 09:29 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
They had Morimoto pouring drinks at some event to support the troops a few months ago in NYC, I don't know how much it would cost to get him to actually cook for a group.

I did not fall for your ruse

As I told mineral2 at last year's Junior Senior Semi-formal. I believe you will be posting on lj till you die, and if you could post from beyond the grave you would.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: June 3rd, 2005 09:25 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Re: I did not fall for your ruse

There's a service to send people emails after you've died. I should post to LJ via email gateway using that.

I used to have a really awesome ``sysop in a box'' setup on my old BBS back in the day, that imitated my typing patterns and random conversation shifts. Maybe I should look into an Eliza-ish Kingfox that posts as me regularly after my death.

You're two months late. Bastard.

Well, Fay and I might be back East in late June for a weekend.

Wish we could make the party.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: June 3rd, 2005 09:24 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
Re-read the post... the party will be in two years.

I'm not graduating this past May, silly.

How late in June? jenniever and I will be in the Seattle/BC area late June/early July.
