word of warning . . . - LOLMac
u can has RDA
word of warning . . .
I just had a mystery Friend add me to his/its Friends list -- 'eorpada'.  The journal consists entirely of blatherings about a get-rich-working-at-home-with-US-government-grant-money, and the profile is randomly assembled crap and a Friends list that looks like it's half composed of porn stars.

If you go to the Support page of LJ, there's a link for reporting suspected bots, which have apparently begun to crop up in numbers.  I have reported 'eorpada'.  As far as I know, I can't remove myself from his/its Friends list; but if anyone knows a way in which this can be done without directly interacting with the bot, please let me know.

I got that, too, or one like it a few weeks ago. I didn't do anything with it but it's not on my flist now that I see. Perhaps someone realized it was a bot (thanks to all of you reporters out there) and now it's gone?

Good to hear of the resolution! I rather doubt that bots are going to get much glee from captioned photos of RDA. Pity, that.

I have noted that you've got a definite theme going.

Speaking of themes, did you squee at the end of the new Trek movie, when the soundtrack hit the bell-note sequence of the original theme music? I did.

Oh, gods, yes. It was the most beautiful thing ever. Sigh...

Ok, here's my take on the music in this movie: as I watched it for the first time, I kept waiting and listening for the underlying motif of either classic Trek or TNG. It never came. Never. When we got the big brassy horn lines of the new tune, I was almost disappointed at first because I wanted my music, dammit! Then came the end credits and I squealed with delight. They did it just right. This film NEEDED all new EVERYTHING, including music. By not using old motifs, they made this film everything it had to be, meaning new, new, new.

Then, by using classic Trek for the end credits, the paid tribute where tribute was due.

Finally, when the end credits are almost done, there is one riff of Life is a Dream (the music that became the TNG theme).


It's perfect. An all new score for an all new film, then homage, then looking to the future once again.

Perfect, perfect, perfect.

Well done, Mr. Giacchino. Well effing done.

p.s.-upon third viewing, I did catch the tiniest hint of Life is a Dream-ish tunes when Kirk looks up at the shipyard. Tiny, tiny, tiny, though.

Have you tried banning him? That way he at least won't show up on your info page as someone who's friended you.

Thanks for the tip! I hadn't thought of that (obviously).

Thank you for the great work you do bringing lolmacs to the world. :)

*bows deeply* It's my pleasure. Literally.

BTW, if you're inclined to Friend LOLMac, feel free to do so; everyone is welcome (well, except the bots. And if a bot had a sense of hunmour and liked RDA, I wouldn't even object in that case.)
