365 Challenge : Idyllic

What does your ideal community look like? How is it organised and how is community life structured? What values does the community share?

Ideal community?

Personally I think the question doesn’t really ask what a ideal COMMUNITY would look like but what you’d love to dictate to other people to make THEM perfect for YOU.

What does it look like?

Well I’m pretty much in some pretty ideal communities already. Or have been. The 2005-2009 Bebo F1 community was wonderful as was the community we made for ourselves after that. The Wrestling community on Tumblr have their moments. I think the one I love the most at the moment is the anime debating community brought together by Twitter User IcebergLuffy. Its the most active I’ve been in a community since about 2010/2011 and is a wonderful community even if I only really contribute to it during the debate on a Saturday (it tends to be posted early Saturday morning but in the US it starts Friday evenings.)

So yeah for a introvert recluse a online community is perfect for me.

I really would like to be more into the communities in general again like I used to be. The problem is with my paranoia when you get burnt once you think it’ll happen 100 times over. The way I left the F1 community I was part of and actually Digital Spy and the Strictly Come Dancing / F1 community on there too has left me feeling pretty down on opening myself up again. Its sad because the communities I’m kind of part of just seem so nice but I kind of clam up the second I look like I’m making a step forward.

Its why I tried and kind of still trying so hard to join a community on WoW which just seems impossible for me.

How is it structured and organised?

It doesn’t matter. Even a online community it doesn’t matter. At the end of the day people need to be left to live their life the way they want to live it. It would suck if people were forced to do things one way for any reason.

Sure we have structure in our life that we have to follow. We HAVE to go school and HAVE to in some way get a job in our adult life and follow the rules of both but we are still individuals that have a choice over certain parts of our life.

If you start trying to structure it for a whole community then it stops being ideal because its just brainwashing people into acting in your perfect way which even if you brainwash people to believe its the “best” way just won’t fit into some peoples way of being.

So no structure or organisation.

Of course if you are talking about smaller things its nice to be online when other people are. Its why I loved the #F1Chat stuff when it was big and being online at the same time to talk about F1, Doctor Who, Strictly Come Dancing, World Cup matches and other things. Obviously if your gaming there needs to be organisation so you are online together at the right times.

The thing that makes me sad is not being online the same time as people to talk about F1. I think having to work Sunday’s started to kill my interest but by the time I stopped working Sunday’s the highlights meant I no longer got to always watch at the same time.

Pah.

What values do we share?

It depends what you mean by values.

If you mean the big ones you’d hope everyone you share this Earth with will live by good ones but I honestly think that people shouldn’t judge others because even if they on the outside seem to have terrible values you really need to talk to them before you truly make your mind up.

The sad thing is people are too busy to react strongly when they disagree that everyone becomes defensive and more often then not people lose the chance to actually get to know each other properly. There are lots of people that have really strange values or opinions that when you get to know them you learn that they aren’t actually as strong into their convictions as they first sounded or else are just nice with dodgy values.

Pride Promotions : Ultimate Prizefighters 3

This might be the last Pride event I go to for a while unless I find someone with transport before next week, I already have had to look into finding somewhere to stay for the night in Penzance for their May show. Its a good thing it was one hell of a night then right?

We were up to Newton Abbot for this one and thanks to the trains being down I bled for it (nose bleed, travel sickness and a migraine from travelling on the bus and then a taxi. I can do trains, not buses.)

I didn’t take as many photos as I usually do but I think I’ve managed to add more then I usually do so just give your computers/mobile devices a second to get over it.

Wrestling Hub February Update

So the first update of the year after starting it back in January and already we’re one person down therefore this month its only the British Indie stuff being picked.

For anyone that is behind on it Pete does the American stuff (usually when he isn’t dying) and I do the stuff I go see live. I have deleted Pete’s January picks so PLEASE do not think I’ve picked anything over anything American. I wasn’t paying enough attention to do his part of the stuff so decided not to do it.

So go to the Wrestling Hub : Link
(Or you can get there via the link on the top menu or in the sidebar to the left…)
(Also I still haven’t finished the page off so please don’t moan at me about how terribly spaced out it is right now. Moan at me in a week or so when I’m not a pile of tears.)

The two reviews you’ll need to see :
(Both Pride Promotions as there was no Plymouth Wrestling this month to pick from, though they’d have to have done something special to beat either of the two Pride shows)

Real Rock N Rollas :Β Link
Dream of Glory : Link

It has taken me all day to do it and it isn’t really done very well (I might update it when I’m not so down but after spending the day feeling terrible someone always finds a way to make it even worse so right now I’m not feeling it at all.) Because it has taken all day and sucks , I have decided to do more then just announce that it has been updated and give you a look at the matches/wrestlers that were in the running.

Which sounds much more interesting then it actually is!

RAW 22/2/16 Review

So we haven’t done a RAW review for a long time and as Pete still hasn’t got one done and I won the Wrestling Reviewer Showdown then I guess it is time for me to take over a little bit. Only because I don’t have too much anime to watch today.

Daily Doodle #25

As I said yesterday, today I am in Exeter to watch Pro Wrestling Pride’s “Dream of Glory” event starring Tommy Dreamer.

In one of my strange moments I decided to draw this…

If you don’t know why I’m so proud of it I’ll tell you. I can’t really draw without having something to copy, I don’t really have the imagination and definitely don’t have the skills to put pen to paper and do something out of my head. These guys as you can tell suck ass but BUT the important thing is I had nothing to base them off of so they are 100% my own messed up imagination. Hence they suck so badly. By the time I drew Jason Larusso I gave up on trying to draw bodies or position things at all so just covered him up in his cape.

That is what happens when you leave me on my own.
