colloquium: colloquiaPosted: November 27, 2011 | |
why can’t we hark back to days of yore, when argot was evident and the hoi polloi were blithe?
- An informal meeting for the exchange of views.
- An academic seminar on a broad field of study, usually led by a different lecturer at each meeting.
Preceding a post with this word in brackets doesn’t make your post better or set it apart. Especially when it’s not much of a discussion or exchange of views, but rather an episodic with two people exchanging the same view. Epic Win may have been a game of Pong between 0rion and Guff, but if there’s no exchange of ideas, there’s no colloquium. It’s a forum, not a speech with two people reading off the same paper.
And to break away from my traditional hate machine-powered methods, I need to make one thing clear. I’m not delivering this to just vuc and ajthefourth, but to all of you people who think inserting long words from a thesaurus is going to make your post any better. Hell, I had to look up all those words in the caption up there, and it doesn’t make the sentence sound any smoother.
looks like you didn’t learn much
I don’t know much about literary theory, but if the concept of deconstruction is as simple as this, why does academia exist? Digitalboy is the perfect example of the kind of guy I really detest. He doesn’t really know what he’s talking about yet he pretends like he does. And people who are all-too-kind acknowledge him.
And I am not a successful blogger. This is the perfect setup for posts that can be summarized in a single sentence:
Madoka Magica is different from other magical girl shows because Madoka doesn’t transform.
…but are unfortunately drawn out with the use of big, complicated jargon. And big pictures. And too many pictures.
Please, people! Do not use such complicated vocabulary! I’m just focusing on post titles here, but I know there are many, many of you out there filling your posts with SAT vocab and words out of thesaurus.com. This is not good writing! This does not make your posts attractive!
Being a “tryhard” is not a bad thing. But try hard in areas that matter more! (Like doing my 15-page paper so I can write some posts.)
this was not funny at all
P.S.: I did not mention ghostlightning or bash him at all here for digiboy’s crappy post because I don’t really know him or read his blog. Retro mecha.
P.P.S.: One thing that I must praise digiboy for is not giving a shit about me. Really b-boosts my self esteem. I’ve said bad things about his blog and his madoka post in particular all over twitter and my blog and other places. But then again, I’ve said bad things about most people.
P.P.P.S.: These are not disclaimers.
