Eh, the more people adding me to their 'friends' list the better.
I actually first stole the idea from <B>Aaron Holm</B> (who writes and draws <B><a href="http://www.joeaverage.org">Joe Average</a></B>, when I noticed his. I didn't even know what "<B>Live Journal</B>" <I>was</I> at the time; only that it looked cool and that I had a web-comic... sort've... and it's an easy way to announce stuff and cross-promote. Mmm... anyway, no permission required.
<P>>"don't expect earth-shaking revelations of wisdom or shadowy displays of gothdom"<P>--Is that what I'm supposed to be doing?
Seriously, any 'gothiness' I display, I'd rather call being macabre/depressed. To many people (and so, now, to me), "goth" evokes images of the "death clowns" as I call them - the ones who try too hard to look like vampires/"The Crow". They have, like it or not, redefined the word, thanks to excess media misinformation. I'm not going to defend "goth" anymore, because in the end, it means <I>nothing</I>. It's just a word. I appreciate the darker aspects of existance and emotion (mostly in artistic expression), the juxtaposition of "beauty", etc, and I even dig some of the music now and then. --But I don't consider myself part of the scene, despite the dark clothes and trench coat.<P>--Oh, and "wisdom"? Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha!
I just write about boring crap and whenever the strip comes up.<P>Mindless banter is what keeps forums alive... make a topic; any topic (within reason).... I'm not reserving the use of the forum for discussing the comic. It's convenient for that use, but really, there's more interesting things to talk about.
<P>(Side note: I've also found that posting in the SJ forum every now and then is a great way of promoting.)
<P>And hey, dig my new icon, courtesy of <B>Salama</B>! Too big for LJ, and I don't know how functional it would be for LJ anyway, but neat, eh?<P> <IMG SRC="http://raeofdarkness.keenspace.com/images/RaeWar.gif"> <p>[This message has been edited by Raemonde (edited 01-09-2002).]
