"contests and stuff"

Gee, i think i've done more ranting in the past four days than i've done in months. Maybe i'll try to use the momentum to, like, rant more. Ya, like that'll happen. Anyways, short non-rant for today.

First off, we've opened the MegaGear store to international orders, so if you live outside of the US, you'll find that there is a place to put the country you live in now. w00t :) Also, you'll note that we're accepting pre-orders for Megatokyo Volume 3. The books are technically due in stores February 2nd, but depending on shipping and other distribution stuffs it's hard to say when exactly you'll be find them in stores. Preorders may not be the quickest way to get a book - we'll probably get our books around the same time they show up in stores, but we'll be shipping them as soon as we get them. More details on the Megagear site. Oh, and we've got more Ninj4 hoodies too. Yay.

Second thing is that Dark Horse is running a Megatokyo contest over at the Dark Horse website, which will result in the giving away of many Megatokyo books, Megatokyo ALA posters and even a Flapdoozy bag. Free to enter, winners chosen at random. yay for contests :)

What else? well... lots of stuff, but i'm feeling lazy and i think i'd rather read than write tonight. I think i'll go dig out my copy of Johnathan Strange & Mr. Norrell and spend some time getting closer to the end of it...

Heh. I come back from work and see a dozen angry messages from Fred on my home machine because of the last rant, followed by a "Oh, you were quoting Kurtz, not insulting him."

I'm a simple man, really. I get angry for very short periods of time, I get frustrated for longer periods of time, but when you get down to it, I'm a mellow guy. That manic little ball of rage you see on stage during anime/comic book conventions? Yeah, I guess he's me too, but not in any prolonged manner. But when I'm angry at someone, I come out and say it. And I don't get mad at people over the 'Net. It's a waste of energy. So just remember--unless I start a rant by saying I'm pissed and want to set people on fire, I'm most likely sitting at my keyboard, drinking a soda and either catching up on some reading, or avoiding work.

Anyway, since I've been censored, I figure I should celebrate it somehow. It's been a while since anything I said was pulled back, and in true journalistic style, I guess I should complain about it bitterly whilst... uh... I dunno, really, I'm new to the whole writing gig. Should I make endless posts about the iniquity of my situation, as a poor oppressed writer who can't earn his wage without being oppressed? And that all should witness the violence inherent in the system, until justice is served on my terms?

Should I drink absinthe and give up on life (I think drinking absinthe and giving up on life are equivalent, but what do I know?), devoting my meaningless, silenced existence to writing bad poetry and trying to get laid?

Should I rail against the man, camping out in Ann Arbor and fighting the power until Fred gets tired of me stinking up his doorstep and gives in to whatever it was we were talking about?

Or should I realize that all of those things require effort, sit back and play video games?

I think you'll know what choice I'm going with.
