My name is blue canary, one note spelled: L-I-T-E  

But yet not. *grins* Anyway, it seems pretty self-explanatory that the gogo formerly known as gogochan is now gogo_ergo_sum . Why?

For starters, it was time for a change. Also, gogo is way too old snobbish self-important vain mature (*wink*) to be a "chan" anymore. Ok, fine, gogo is somewhat snobbish and referring to oneself as "sama" is definitely self-important (but not as grandiose as when gogo wrote a column under the pen name "The Countess," eh?). But gogo is also the first to poke fun at her spoiled, princess self (with gogodgene  being a close second). So, don't take it too seriously. The LJ handle will probably change again in due time, most likely to something outrageously vain. For those of you who actually refer to gogo as gogo-sama... *grins* Very flattering, though the title of respect is hardly deserved. ((And just for the record, writing as "The Countess" was not gogo's idea. Seriously!))

More importantly... lcpdragonslayer  and that_indian_guy 's package arrived from NZ!! And...and...and... THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! The gifts are adorable and just perfect! You two rock so hard! The Batman pin could not be cuter and is already affixed to gogo's big black Prada purse. And it looks DAMN GOOD there! LCP--your card was so sweet. Thank you for that as well. Tigger--gogo is slightly disappointed that your card did not include naked pictures of you, or any erotic art. Woe. But the gifts were fabulous, and gogo is muchly happy. Hearts to you both~

And, finally, to make post even shinier, here's a gorgeous drawing of Aziraphale from Good Omens that gogodgene  drew for gogo.

Gogod took a popular drabble meme and turned it into a doodle meme. This is her take on Aziraphale as a "Protective Character," while he was still the Guardian Angel of the East Gate of Eden (note the "impressive," as Crowley said, flaming sword.) And the wings! Pretty damn good for just a "doodle," eh? Gogod's arts are amazing~

Guardian of the East Gate

She's also got a really badass Muguruma Kensei and a sexy, sleepy Hisagi Shuuhei posted, so go HERE to see them and be sure to tell her how awesome she is!! And maybe request an art for yourself...preferably a character that gogo would also appreciate. *cough*

ALSO... The  Kink Meme is still getting requests! And, someone just fulfilled a Bya/Renji request!! Awesome timing, considering Byakuya's reappearance (finally) in the Bleach anime. Read it HERE. Viva la Kink Meme. Please keep it going!

P.S. Gogo will happily do some music swappage with anyone who has the MP3 of Little Birdhouse In Your Soul ((which is obviously running through gogo's head right now like whaooo.)

P.P.S. Happy Thanksgiving to all you Yanks, and a lovely week and weekend to everyone else. xoxo

I am completely clueless to these sort of things - what is the difference between chan and sama? What do they mean?

Thnxxxxxx for the MP3!! Yay! Am going to be listening to this all weekend. Gogo needs some little birdhouses to stay happy and sane during the Thanksgiving holiday. Le sigh.

Ok, "chan" and "sama" are Japanese titles. In Japanese, titles are added to the end of a person's name, rather than before it. So Ms. Gogo would be gogo-san. "San" means Mr., Mrs., and Ms.

"Chan" is kinda cutesy, something you'd say to a verrry good friend, a younger relative, or a child. It can be a cute term of endearment.

"Sama" is a title of respect. It's the equivalent of sir or madam or "your honor" or "your excellency." ((Bruce Wayne is definitely a sama.)) So, gogo is being rather snooty by referring to herself in such a manner. Also, it's not proper to refer to oneself with a title or honorific, unless you're making a joke. Which gogo kinda is.

Does any of that make sense??

Also, am happy to give you an MP3 or two in return. What kind of music to you like? Want a Japanese pop song since we're talking about Japanese stuff??

It was no problem to upload the MP3! Enjoy. I listen to anything, really, so if you want to upload something Japanese that'd be cool. Broaden my horizons a little. :D

Thanks for explaining! That makes tons of sense. I had heard "chan" used a little before, but didn't really know what it meant. And I definitely didn't know what "sama" was. But it was super easy to understand, thanks.

Sure! You have a little brother, right? If you wanted to be sweet to him (or tease him), you might call him nii-chan (nii means brother). A male peer (we'll call him Dude Smith) would be Smith-kun (you wouldn't call him Dude or Dude-kun unless you were really tight friends, or you felt like being disrespectful.)

Hmm, gogo will upload a few songs you might not have and will PM you the links. Probably won't get to it until later or tomorrow, tho.

Not Japanese music, but...
There's some interesting tunes HERE.

Various rock song that remind gogo of Dante Sparda, one of her fave characters ever. This isn't a fanmix, just a collection of songs that get the Dante muse flowing when gogo wants/needs to write him. So, have some White Zombie, some Elvis re-mix, some N.E.R.D., some Basement Jaxx...


((Oh, some are MP4's, because that's how iTunes sells them. So, if you don't have an iPod or iTunes, they're not gonna work))
