i blush to admit it, but i originally was terribly embarrassed
to link to them. i can't match their offhanded brilliance, and it's
only natural to try to avoid inviting direct comparison that way.
but i knew i had to do a banner for them someday. eventually i
did, putting it in the banner list with no publicity at all. i felt
a little better, a little less guilty. and whenever i clicked on
it, piro was always humble, and largo was always. . . random. .
. and together they were the ideal otaku. i think most of what they
write could be about any of us, and they're only talking about themselves
as examples. it's insightful. . . and pretty. . . and (understatement
and besides. . . i've gotten a lot from megatokyo over the last
year. piro's wrote a while back:
. . .a sense of the fact that I really was getting thru to people.
It's not an experience i ever thought i'd feel, and i don't think
it's one many people experience.
we're listening, piro-san.
