Apparently we are getting a lot of spam... I apologize for not catching it.

In the meantime, if you get any spam, please let the mods know instead of deleting so we can report it. You can actually report it to us in this thread for now.

EDIT 1: As a temporary measure (I hope), I have set a recaptcha requirement for all non-members who post comments. I hate to do this because I realize recaptcha can be problematic for some people (myself included, honestly), but hopefully it'll be very temporary I tested this one and it didn't work, so instead, all non-member comments will be screened for now, as a temporary measure. Please let me know if this causes anyone major problems.

Guys. Guys. You may have been wondering just what the Hell happened to my snarkings. Well, I, in my infinite grace, managed to step on my everloving laptop. So, since my screen looked like on of Claudia's tie dye projects, I haven't been able to snark in forever. But I finally overcame my fear of talking to strangers on the phone and called a repair place. Hopefully I'll have it back in shape and can finish 'K Ron is the Next Trump' within a timely manner. I am so sorry it took me so long to get this done. I really missed this comm so much and felt bad for leaving you all hanging. So, let's all hope my laptop makes it and I can get back to snarking and posting cat gifs. Thank you all for your patience and all your awesome comments!

The Best Friends You'll Ever Have!!!! [Jun. 20th, 2016|12:27 am]

Everyone: everyone.  Hello.  This is veggievixen doing the typing here.  Just wanted to give a shout out to the BSC snark community, because jestingly_yours (whose account this is, plz keep up) and I first started getting palsy here on this community, and now I am in her house!  She knows about it.  She invited me in (no vampire-o) and I'm here.  Thanks internet.  Thanks everyone.  Also when I remember my login I plan on posting another snark, at some point, in the future, can't say definitely.  We were reading Karen books out loud to one another earlier, you know, normal Sunday stuff after you get some culture in at the museum and then remember you don't actually "get" art, you only "get" Karen.  So that's revitalized me.  Lol (<- lots of love, that's my secret acronym but you all can use it if you want.)

Truly this all started because I'm a vain monster and jestingly_yours showered me with praise, that's all it takes to get me to get Southwest.com involved and fly to your state (of Nebraska).

non-snark post, but snark related [Jun. 16th, 2016|10:17 am]

hey guys,
as i'm sure you've noticed, i've been majorly dropping the ball when it comes to getting snarks up in a reasonable time frame, and pretty much everything else that snarking BSC books and being a member of a community involves, especially in the last six months or so. things have been incredibly hectic and stressful over here and i've been realizing more and more that i just don't have the time or energy lately to write long snarks and that snarking the BSC in particular has been more stressful than i can manage right now. i've been trying for the last few months to lower my stress levels in general and, unfortunately, taking an extended break from snarking BSC books is the next logical step. i'm sorry for not finishing my last snark and i DO intend to finish it at some point, i just know that i can't right now.

i will still probably be writing short movie and book snarks/reviews on my blog, if anyone is interested in that, but i just know that writing up long snarks is beyond the scope of what i can reasonably handle right now. once again, i'm incredibly sorry. i just thought it would only be fair to let you guys know what's going on. i will still be around reading snarks though, because you guys are funny as hell and i really enjoy the snark community and all the people in it. and i wanted to thank you all, as always, for reading and commenting on my snarks and encouraging me to keep writing.

Okay so, as I was saying, this is the kind of book that happens when Ann tries to tackle a real life issue she knows nothing about (and really, judging by all of the failures of books that tried to cover sensitive real life subjects, Ann knew nothing about ANYTHING). I really wish Ann had just stayed away from the sensitive real stuff and just continued writing tween girl fantasies about a bunch of middle schoolers becoming the best babysitters in the world and doing things way too mature for their age. Because that's what she was best at--fantasy. But when you try to put real life in fantasy, it ends up...like this book and many others.

And it"s pretty damn terrible.Collapse )

You guys forever rule and it makes me so happy that you all seem to enjoy the insanity of my snarks, thank you all so much!

I’m actually doing pretty well; energy hasn’t been too bad, and I’m catching up with some favorite shows (and watching new ones…. Has anyone watched Mad Men yet? I’m two eps in and it’s pretty good so far!). Plus, been catching on my unread book pile… I got recommendations for some titles if anyone’s interested.

Oh my god guys I am actually back. It's me, Star Ultranova/syphabelnades (formerly xenaeilonwy) and I got locked out of my LJ account for a whole fuckin' year because of a password conflict. But I managed to get back in and not a moment too soon, because I missed BSC Snark and I missed taking the piss out of terrible books from our childhoods!

On that note, I'm back with a particularly nasty, touchy book from the series. This was one of the ill-conceived "Very Special Episodes" that dealt with a very important real life issue in Ann M. Martin's characteristic horrible, misguided ways. That being said, some material in this snark may offend you. Because I'm vitriolic. And I don't just punch holes in these books, I set them on fire. And this is a real life issue. So be aware of that.

This is the book that deals with child abuse. Even though child abuse in its various forms runs rampant in Stoneybrook in SEVERAL different books and no one does a damn thing because the abuse isn't in the form of physical violence.

Let us begin, shall we?Collapse )
