MixMatched is a collaboration blog between myself (seele00), jockeytiyan, and blissfulyoshi. The content is, as the title says, mix (mis) matched. I do eroge reviews (because I could read) and was supposed to do movies. The plan was (seele00 = Gab; jockeytiyan = lj.flores):
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:10:57 PM): Hey Gab, you there?
Gab (7/25/2010 10:11:19 PM): WAI
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:11:15 PM): I’m thinking of something…
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:11:24 PM): something absurd, yet unoriginal
Gab (7/25/2010 10:11:44 PM): WAT
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:11:41 PM): hmmm…
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:11:57 PM): let’s put up some reviewing blog or something
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:12:04 PM): like omochikaeri.wordpress.com. ❤
Gab (7/25/2010 10:16:11 PM): You make the blog. I’ll just add content.
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:16:33 PM): well, I’m not…
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:16:39 PM): really that good at designing blogs. D:
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:16:46 PM): or rather, even organizing
Gab (7/25/2010 10:16:56 PM): See meh point?
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:16:57 PM): but I could make technical stuff work
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:17:03 PM): yes yes
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:17:07 PM): I get it
Gab (7/25/2010 10:17:10 PM): Well, if you could, then do so.
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:17:10 PM): orz
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:17:21 PM): meh
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:17:21 PM): I bust
Gab (7/25/2010 10:17:25 PM): lol
Gab (7/25/2010 10:17:37 PM): I finally got motivated and all that shit.
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:17:45 PM): motivated…
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:17:49 PM): so I caught your attention?
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:17:51 PM): orz
Gab (7/25/2010 10:18:05 PM): Besides, how can you review eroge if you can’t even read those moonrunes?
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:18:13 PM): moonrunes. lol
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:18:27 PM): well, I’m just planning
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:18:39 PM): you do eroge, I do movies, and both of us do anime.
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:18:42 PM): fair share? XD
Gab (7/25/2010 10:18:56 PM): OH so you were gonna make a mix blog.
Gab (7/25/2010 10:19:01 PM): Sure go ahead.
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:19:03 PM): *nods*
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:19:16 PM): after UPCAT?
Gab (7/25/2010 10:19:25 PM): I could start now.
Gab (7/25/2010 10:19:48 PM): Seeing as that blogging never does interfere with my studies.
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:20:03 PM): well, it kinda does for me though
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:20:12 PM): Since I barely watch movies and animes at this kind of times
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:20:29 PM): I’m not good with publicity, mind you. XD
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:20:38 PM): So it takes me too much time just to make a short blog post
Gab (7/25/2010 10:21:48 PM): I already have a WordPress for that purpose, I just needed an additional hand.
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:21:59 PM): additional hand…
lj.flores (7/25/2010 10:22:01 PM): sure, why not
Eventually blissfulyoshi was roped in by jockey and it became the blog that it is today. Seele (eroge), Yoshi (anime), Jockey (whatever else).
We blog on a whim. Don’t expect episodic or thematic reviews much around here (unless it’s from me). We’re frikkin’ science/engineering majors, hence we’re much more technical when it comes to our reviews. If you don’t like it condensed, then tell us and we’ll probably expound on the comments. If you think we’re too inactive, check the Twitter feed I’m holding (since I’m usually the most active writer nowadays). Even I’ve got stuff to do.
That said, the very purpose of this blog is to state our opinion. And mainly that would be our opinion on the subject matter that we take into our scope (which actually can be anything related to Japanese culture). How we present it is our business, although I do see that we generally prefer it in a digest. And I’d prefer to keep it that way really. We present our thoughts, you present yours once you’ve explored whatever crap we wrote about. Discussion is most welcome, just no trolls.
Anyway this About page just got shitty long. Go wait for my next review (if ever).
