Because it's been a while since I've done one and more people are visiting or hanging out here, and because today is one of those days where I'm bored to death, it's time for a roll call! Who are you and why are you here?
(You're not required to post if you don't want to, of course, and these things tend to generate enough comments that I give up on answering all of them after a bit, so if I don't reply to you it's not because I don't love you!)
Minus the snark this time! Sorry! Even though I usually post uber-snarky reviews under friendslock, the artists have this habit of showing up here and occasionally friending me and then, dammit, being interesting people I want to friend back and thus cause me to wonder if they're going to hate me for snarking the hell out of them SO YOU CAN ALL BLAME THEM FOR HAVING THE TEMERITY TO BE INTERESTING, LIKEABLE PEOPLE!
So Tokyopop posted

I think my iPod's dead again, dammit.
Anyone have a manga character they hate for me to name my iPod for? I seem to have the Magic Killing Power for whoever I name it after, going 2 for 2 right now. I'll start taking bids.
