You know what, Eurosport? Fuck you!
Fuck you for always pushing my sport to the back of things, the latest bit being showing a Formula E race rather than the finale stage of a World Tour race!
Fuck you for calling yourself "Home of Cycling" when it's so obviously not true.
Fuck you for laying sole claims on the Giro, and the other RCS races.
And most of all, fuck you for not even being consistent with your schedules. From three different sources I got three different pieces of information today, what the hell am I supposed to believe?

If people don't want me to partake in something they should just tell me. 
Hearing somebody say 'they're worried you'll ruin the party' fucking hurt, ok?
The whole 'find a way around it without saying we don't her around' is getting really tiring at this point.

I'm not going to be mad if you're completely honest with me.
I get fucking angry when you try and be nice and gentle over it.

Take your sword and stab me outright, it's kinder than stringing me along.

Urgh, I'm go buy some stuff for tonight.

From Facebook group:
Quote :
Richard Pini
25. Mai um 07:49

Dear friends, readers, and fans: it is with deep regret that I announce the cancellation of the remainder of the Elfquest 40th anniversary tour, the scrapping of all future Elfquest projects, and the complete withdrawal by Wendy and me from any and all future public appearance. Why this sudden and drastic change of course, after decades of greatly appreciated recognition and acclaim? Simple. Recently, we declined to participate in a fan project that would have involved granting permissions that were not ours to give, as well as answering a long list of questions, the answers to which are already available in numerous places on the web. Clearly, our desire neither to abuse the rules of copyright, nor to waste our time, was unforgivably selfish on our part. We heard back and were derided for our shortsightedness in not taking advantage of the valuable publicity our participation would have afforded us. Upon reflection, we have come to the conclusion that, yes, our decision was a fatal one. Our inclusion on major best seller lists, the continuing coverage by national and international news outlets, all these can count for nothing now, in the face of this single, rash mistake. So it is time to pack up our tent, cast aside the work of a lifetime, and fade into self-engendered obscurity.
.
.
.
Just kidding. About the self-imposed exile part, that is. The rest actually happened.

EDIT to clarify for very nervous readers: "Just kidding. About the tour, future projects, and exile parts, that is. The rest actually happened.
Seriously?

Is it seriously still necessary to make those kind of "jokes", Mr. Pini?

More than ever.

But maybe I'm the only one identifying the extreme level of irony and sarcasm hidden behind that not-so-subtle FB post, by the nastybadeditorbigthing we call elfpop.

In short :



Elfquest ( as we fans know and have learned to love, all along ) is dead.

That said, I cannot even confirm anything about any FB group, since..
..on june, 10th 2017, the FB 'bots deactivated my FB account ( that I had been using intensively for nearly three years ), without warning, without invoking any reason for it, without allowing me to fix anything potentially wrong, and since I would NOT follow their abusive process, in order to get it reactivated.. I STILL cannot get it back.
Hence, my fatalistic mind concludes:

To Hell with Facebook!

( There.. I ranted away. )

Um...I don't understand what ELFPOP is saying. What is being cancelled and what is irony/a joke? My English is not that well. *sobs*

Why is nasty Elfpop even making jokes while many fans are obviously angry and dissatisfied? Rude much?

I also hate Facebook... deleted my account years ago.

After rereading I take it as in his Edit he says his whole post was a nasty joke except of that copyright bla bla...-.-. Seriously. Not funny.

You know ... highly oversized pictures really spoil the reading quality.

It is no fun to scroll to the outer right and back to the left for each line I want to read. It is great to embed the direct link for full picture view ... but it does not help at all for readability. And it is not pleasant to look at the loveliest drawing when it jumps in your eye by filling full screen with a 2/3 cutout.

I guess ... most of you simply don't know. It has become really common. Probably it's not a problem when you run on mobile mode. Or with those common wide screens. *sigh* I have no "mobile something" ... just an oldfashioned comp. And I cannot handle wide screens - my eyes tend to switch betweens lines when they get too long and it makes headache.

Just my personal problem ... I shouldn't be annoyed about it.

You know...
I've noticed that in ANY human community, nowadays, there is always only a SMALL proportion of members who actively participate, most simply following, reading, profitting.. but keeping inactive or barely active.

I've come to sadly interpret it as the fact the sense of SHARING is getting lost, more and more.

Just my personal problem ... I shouldn't be annoyed about it.

Yet..



..everyone has much to share.

I agree with you, Em. It annoys me too, so it's not just your personal problem.

About picture sizes, I TRY and maintain a maximum of 800 pixels wide.

Pleeeeze tell me if it's too much, elf friends, or if I left too oversized pix, somewhere!

Great music video from Lindsey Stirling, PC! Love her violin play and the masterful piano play of the blind pianist...so touching. <3

About the oversized drawings I posted: I am so sorry, Embala and other people who were annoyed. :-( I only use my mobile phone and it's hard for me to scroll through the web version with my mobile. However sometimes I check the web version because I can only see some functions displayed on the web version. For example PM's or signatures etc..I realized too late I posted super big pictures because they are shown quite tiny on the mobile version. Next time I will be more careful!

Speaking of it, I can't upload pictures with my mobile phone anymore. :-( On Google Chrome it's not working at all- on Firefox I was able to upload for a few days. Now it's not working either. Must be something with my mobile phone because it was no problem when I tried with a computer. Annoying for a mobile user... :-(

Aww *warm hugs back*.

It may be annoying but I am relieved I can still share links to my drawings with you guys. So they will be just one click away from fathertreeholt. Hope that will not be a nuisance (but I think that's better than sharing nothing at all?).

Much better than nothing!

Still ... when it worked before there is no reason it cannot work again. Maybe something with swamped storage? You need a mobile phone doc or just a savvy youth! ^^

I searched the internet and found that picture upload malfunctioning can happen due to wrong internet browsers like Chrome. I changed to Firefox and it worked for a few days. Afterwards, same problem. Even after excessively cleaning my mobile phone with avast cleaner and own cleaning on settings. I have loads of free space on my phone (more than 10GB free space on SD card). It's just not working anymore...

However after vacation I have access to a laptop again and may exchange the links with original pictures (of reasonable size^^).
So sorry for the nuisance!

Fairyring ... can it be that your pics are so pixel heavy that they exceed the upload limits of servimg?
It also depends whether you save as .jpg or .png ... jpg needs much less storage. (Downside: it's less clear.)

Looking forward to laptop access! NOW have FUN! sunny

Aww thank you for trying to help me out Embala. <3 I used exactly the same pictures and it worked on the laptop but wouldn't upload on my mobile phone. ^^ I can't upload anything on my phone no matter which format or size...

I am annoyed. I have used so much time and energy to schedule a showing for a possible candidate, and when we finally manage to find a sollution (FaceTime) the person doesn’t respond. At all, despite knowing that my window is super limited due to me traveling today. I could have traveled yesterday but I couldn’t due to this showing.

Urgh.

Oh me oh my, how I hate my job. And my moronic, doughy, stupid, cowardly POS of a manager.
Keep working us like dogs mates, we are leaving in droves! I am waiting to hear back on a very exciting new job and I'm getting plenty of interviews so it is just a matter of time.

You are all so out of touch. Fire us, demote us, pay us crappy wages...the market is strong and we are in high demand. Can't wait to put your sorry butts in my rear view mirror! And make more money to boot, you pile of insipid scaramouches!

I hope everything falls apart and you lie in the ashes peeing yourselves. And pooping for good measure!

The good part is that I am so stressed after work so I am enjoying some very good craft beers from our local market. Very Happy
