OH.  OH!  WHAT IS THIS??  Has the (literally) Lost Temple of Ishida been...been...FOUND????


But, but, I swear I already tried the Wayback Machine!  I tried it two years ago, remember, and still came up empty. Maybe just needed proper URL?  Because all of a sudden, today I remembered smooth.as/yamato, and after trying many, many dead links...I got in.

I have been seeking this site since, I don't even know, well over five years now since it disappeared from the internet and all the hilarity of Fluffy the Tokomon (and the concept that Tokos love to nestle in Tai's hair), Goth T.K. ("It destroys me"), and other side-splitting humor vanished from sight, except in memories, scattered mentions around the 'net and whatever we referenced in Interview Lady.  I have been in mourning all this time, as it was quite possibly the funniest fan site in the history of all fandoms.  Ever.  

Squeeeeeeee!!!  And while a few of the links within remain broken, most of the important ones are intact, so basically it is like I have found BURIED TREASURE MORE PRECIOUS THAN GOLD AND JEWELS.  I am so, so happy that this integral piece of my technical-first-fandom is back in my life.  I always say X-Files was my first fandom, because I like that answer better, but technically, Digimon was my true first.  And while 90% of it was sugar-addled preteens and utter crack, the parts that were good were glorious.

And now, having learned my lesson, off to save everything to my hard drive post-haste.  Whee!  What was I going to talk about before this? 
Oh yes.  On a completely different note, year-end posting tallies, which I find almost as exciting:

Usage by Month
January: 41
February: 32
March: 36
**April: 48 (highest)
May: 38
June: 42
July: 32
August: 23
*September: 19 (lowest)
October: 29
November: 24
December: 26

Usage by Day
Sunday: 50
Monday: 57
Tuesday: 57
Wednesday: 56
**Thursday: 62
Friday: 57
Saturday: 51

Total = 390, or an average of 1.07 posts per day.

Down from last year! In a related role-reversal from last year, I was far more addicted to LJ in the first half of the year than in the second. Good job, me! That should be my new year's resolution: not to post more times than there are days in a month. (Watch, now after five months I will jinx myself)

Another fun fact: last year, Sunday was my highest posting day, and this year it was my lowest. This is the second year in a row this phenomenon has happened! It intrigues me that I post the least on weekends all of a sudden; I guess I just use the computer less on weekends. I do like how consistent my non-Thursday numbers are with one another, though...

Oooh, I must steal that meme!

I almost don't want to click the link in case my memory is of something better than it really was.

Might have to go search for Counting For Lunatics now; it was their Gundam Wing version of LTOI

Ooh, I was hoping you were still around! I can't think of anyone else who would be excited by this news in any capacity (and yet I still felt compelled to share).

I had the same fear, but my personal opinion that everything is, in fact, as funny as I remember it.

Oh I am, just my life post-grad has become so unutterably dull I have stopped, well, uttering about it.

But yes. Things destroying Goth T.K. It gives me a warm glow inside.

Way-back scrabbling revealed this: http://web.archive.org/web/20020209085304/dreamwater.org/deathscythe/main.html
Now I just need to track down that screamingly funny one about evil koushirou and my nostalgia quota for the year will be complete.

Question, if Goth T.K. knew about this, do you think it would destroy him? ;)

Evil Koushiro! Now THAT one I have not thought about in ages. Let me know if you find it...meanwhile, nice score with CFL, as I don't think I'd ever visited that one at all. It's fun poking around new stuff, too.

I think it would destroy him. It would be a vicious circle of glow and destruction and he would have to go away and write poetry about it.

*laughs* Aww, i looked for The Practically Evil Shrine to Dark Koushirou, but all it does is redirect you back to the homestead home page. :< Sadness.
