marciadanielle: (Mister Spock)
So remember how I said the other day how I wanted to talk about New!Spock vs. Old!Spock. Well the time has come my friends. Put on your geek hats and follow me to the land of the future. Heh. Okay, I'm just kidding. Oh, but let me say this first, I watched Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home this morning. And OMG, I can totally see why many people keep saying that this movie is their favourite in the Star Trek universe. It is amazing!! So very funny! I loved it. It was great!! Still not better than the new movie (which I saw in the theatre again on Saturday night - again, so awesome!!) I think I liked it even better the second time. I understood a lot more about the Kirk/Spock dynamic and I understood so much more of the back story (or should I say future story??) During the first time I saw it, I had read some people's reviews and I understood them to mean there was real slash in the movie. So I kept looking for it. And I didn't see any. And I was confused. I re-read those reviews and finally got they just meant a whole lot of pre-slash. So the second time, I was just squeeing the whole time. It was awesome.

Oh, another sidenote. My dad (who finally saw the movie on Friday) and I had a long discussion on the movie last night. It was pretty cool. And I totally blame him for this new obsession, because he started it many years ago when he introduced me to TNG.

Anyways, onto my Spock thoughts: I shall cut this for interests sake! Also some movie spoilers! )

In light of [ profile] scattydove's post the other week (it might have been a couple of weeks ago, I can't remember, and clearly can't be bothered to go check) I thought I would reiterate in mine. There's not a specific reason, just that it pisses me off to no end. Okay, pisses me off might be too harsh, but definitely annoys me to no end would be accurate.

This is taken from a friend's facebook. Not mine and I am not friends with this person, but here you go:

dnt lie ystrdy at wrk bre peeps wer sayin dey got paid alredy!fank god i neva dun ma online shoppin spree last nyt!lol yeh im on goin weneva!organize it n il b der!

Are you fucking kidding me??????????? That's the worst butchering of the English language EVER. Bar none. Holy SHIT!!!

Here is an example that while it makes me shudder, it does not make me implode like the example above:

I know..... its so long... how are u darling?? M good. M currently working with DELL. so any plans of coming down to india?? wat are you doing these days??

The latter is clearly from a different person. It borders on acceptable. Not quite, but almost. Most importantly, it doesn't make me want to rip my eyes out of my head with a spoon.

Both people (as is my friend who I stole these examples from) are Asian. Why oh why does every single Asian person need to type like that??? Why? Because I've noticed they're the majority of the offenders. They are quite capable of typing normally, they speak normally, they don't speak in shortform or acronyms, so why must they type like that?? Why I ask you??? WHY???



Thanks for listening!!
