April Fools! Well, only sorta.
They ARE both coming back ... along with some of my other favorites of the past from the Haven .. as part of my new, "Dee's Dungeness Crab Cake Dungeon" theme restaurant based in Maryland ... whoops! Not time to release THAT information yet! I will be featuring some captioners from the dark recesses of the inactive trading folders on the Haven in an "as yet to be named segment" of this blog. I sent out a PM to a few people that I hold dear and sort of vanished, asking them the following:
I was reminiscing in my blog the other day about how Steffie, Petra, Courtney, and Bimbo Jessica made lots of "silly yet sexy" captions and that no one is really making them like that any more (other than me and sometimes Kaitlyn) and how I miss those. Even more so, we have been getting many new captioners, both here and on my blog, that really haven't a clue what the people I've named have done.Well, I chat with Steffie from time to time, so the last time I talked to her, she had received the message and replied:
So other than reaching out you to all and saying "HI! I miss you all so much!" I was wondering if you would mind me posting some of my favorite captions that you've made, whether for me or others .. so that I can possibly bring them to an audience that would hopefully appreciate them once again. I bring you all up often enough in my blog, that they must wonder if you all are on some sort of "Mount Rushmore of TG Captioning".
I wouldn't post any of your work without asking, so either way, I'd love to hear from you. If you have anything you'd like to say to people I can include that as well, and if you ever make a one-off caption while you are bored someday, I'd certainly post that for you if you wish. You can even BLAME DEE!
In conclusion, I am so happy to have known you for many years and sometimes feel like I've outlived my contemporaries so to speak, but someone has to wander around the TG captioning landscape yelling out things like, "Dagnabbit! Back in MY day we'd NEVER have used helvetica as a typeset. We only had THREE fonts, and comic sans was one of them! And we LIKED it that way! Blasted kids and their Comic Life and their BookFace and their Twatters!"
I hope this message finds you in good health, good spirits, and good luck! You all deserve the very best in life!
- shy steffie:I just read your message
- shy steffie:you can use anything of mine that you want
- Dementia:really? awesome!
- Dementia:i was thinking about either posting stuff from you gals either as "guest captions" or a seperate page of "archives"
shy steffie:I'm just flattered that you're interested
Hi Dee,With 2 people now willing to let me post their works, I feel confident in announcing this little endeavor. The main goal is to show off works from the Haven that don't have any other web presence, and since many people are scared to 'join' a TG site, even a free one, I figure it can't hurt to give some exposure to captions and captioners who've influenced me when I was starting out.
It's good to hear from you. I've been away from the "tubes" for a while so I haven't had a chance to reply until now.
It is perfectly fine with me if you share some of my captions on your site. I know that Steffie and Jess belong on Mt. Rushmore, those two have such a fetish for rock hard Presidents. I suppose I could be there too since I've always had a fondness for disproving the old adage, "you can pick your friends, you can pick your nose, but you can't pick your friend's nose." There are some big noses there. ;D
I hope you aren't being too rough on the kids these days. I know that they have short attention spans and don't respect their elders and listen to that awful racket that they call "music" (not like the quality stuff from our day like Milli Vanilli and Stryper and Warrant and Sammy Hagar era Van Halen :p). I miss your wit and wisdom and puns and creativity.
I hope you (and Steffie and Jess) are doing well and staying out of trouble. Give me a poke if you post anything of mine and I'll try to come by your blog and get all nostalgic and weepy.
Love, hugs, and kisses,
Of course, the big problem is trying to get in contact with people that seem to have disappeared. I am sure that I will be chatting with the original Courtney at some point in the near future (she's writing romance novels now ... really!) so that will make three people, but Jessica hasn't been heard from in 18 months or so. I'm sure she wouldn't mind me posting, but I'm holding out hope that she will contact me officially.
This is not something that will generate 3-4 posts a week. I figure that perhaps every other week something will trickle out slowly, like cum from a sissy's boy-clitty cage. Adding a few others are a possibility too, if I can get in contact with them.
DISCUSSION QUESTION: Should I make this feature a part of the my normal blog posts in here, or separate it into its own page or entirely different blog? I don't think it would clutter up mine too much due to the lack of consistency in when I'll be posting them, but I figured I'd ask the readers. Also, what should I call this little archival project of mine? Lastly, are you interested in the idea itself as proposed? If not, why and what would have to change to make you interested in it?
