I Have an Arubaito

Arubaito is a gairaigo (foreign loanword) rather than a native Japanese term. It is derived from the German word for work, arbeit. Arubaito refers mostly to traditional part-time labor, but it can also refer to moonlighting, or even working as a ‘temp’ when more stable employment is not available.”Japanese 1-2-3

Press Release – I, Baka-Raptor, am now a member of Oi, Hayaku!, a newly formed team blog dedicated to kicking ass. For more on this shocking development, see my first post.

Many of you might think I’m a sellout. Good.

Rest assured, this does not mean I’m abandoning Baka-Raptor.com. Obviously, I’ll be updating less here since I’m splitting time at OH, but with the increased exposure I’ll get from OH, the golden age of Baka-Raptor.com has yet to come. Over at OH I’m scheduled to write posts every other Wednesday, so my post rate here will only decrease by about two posts per month. And if you read all my posts at OH, it’ll be like nothing has changed (except for its pedophilic layout). Well, there may be some differences:

  • I’ll probably recycle/redo bits of my old Baka-Raptor.com posts for some OH posts.
  • I’ll be trendy. For example, I’ll consider use annoying memes such as “mai waifu” and “Over 9000!”
  • I’ll use GIMP instead of Paint.
  • My posts at OH will probably be editorial or observational in nature. Consequently, you’ll get a higher percentage of review posts here at Baka-Raptor.com.
  • Comments there aren’t censored.
  • Expect more podcasts and Talk-A-Raptor episodes.

Why join OH? Because it sounded interesting. That’s all there is to it.

To celebrate the occasion, I bought myself a variety cake.

A variety cake is a lot like a team blog. One slice is inevitably better than the rest, and some loser gets stuck being the carrot cake. Fill in the rest of the metaphor yourselves.

Proof that I’m moving up in the world: everyone is copying my idea of posting cakes they bought for themselves.

    For some reason, that cake picture made me want to gag.

  3. Baka-Raptor says:

    @Kabitzin: Ok.

    @lolikitsune: Get thee to an infirmary.

  4. lolikitsune says:

    You know what this press release is missing? The bit at the end where you have a descriptive blurb about the organization(s) in question. Like, “Baka-Raptor.com is …”

    Anyway. Get thee to teambloggery.

  5. TheBigN says:

    lolikitsune fails at cake.

    And HAHAHA OH WOW! Good luck at OH!. :3

  6. digitalboy says:

    You fucking cheater, picking one that isn’t made of shit and ass.

  7. C.I. says:

    How dare you tempt me with delicious cake I must eat desu~

  8. Coaxen says:

    It’s a small step for a humongous prehistoric reptile, but a great leap for the blog society.

  9. Bors says:

    Carrot cake looks delicious. Don’t hate on the orange.

  10. Baka-Raptor says:

    @lolikitsune: Fixed.

    @TheBigN: Get thee to TheBigNunnery.

    @double, C.I. & Bors: Get thee to a bakery.

    @digitalboy: If you’re on a blog made of shit and ass, why not change it from the inside?

    @Coaxen: And it was all staged.

  11. lolikitsune says:

    I don’t see the fix.

  12. Baka-Raptor says:

    @lolikitsune: Keep looking.

  13. CCY says:

    Get thee to popularity. Will be watching this closely:

    “My posts at OH will probably be editorial or observational in nature.”

    …I know it’s wrong to imagine a 2,000-word Baka-Raptor-style dissertation on, I don’t know, ShizNat, but …

  14. biankita says:

    “Obviously, I’ll be updating less here ”

    Oh god damn it… that will make it, what? once a quarter???

  15. digitalboy says:

    I didn’t mean the cake you fucking dipshit.

  16. digitalboy says:

    no wait I rread the wrong name, nevermind, you brilliant achiever

  17. shirokiryuu says:

    That’s cool, I’m just glad there’ll be more stuff to read from you =D

  18. Hyunk says:

    I can’t even read on OH. The text is too small. 🙁


  19. kanzeon says:

    I was surprised that you will go to the depths of tembloggery… But oh well, good luck in there! …And you should pay me a thousand bucks for the idea 😉

  20. kanzeon says:

    Ugh… What a typo… It should be teambloggery… (or is that even a word?)

  21. lolikitsune says:

    kanzeon, by my decree circa 2006, ‘aniblog,’ ‘aniblogger,’ and ‘anibloggery’ are all official terms within the aniblogosphere. In 2008, I added ‘meta-anibloggery’ to describe the shit Author and I perpetrate. Why not teambloggery?

  22. Toonleap says:

    That cake looks niceeee….Omedetou on getting a Arubaito.

  23. Omisyth says:

    Selling out gets you stuff. Therefore all is forgiven.

  24. OMG I loev that cake! Looks yummy..

  25. blissmo says:

    Actually, Baka-Raptor, are you POSITIVE that cake is edible?

  26. JLeeson says:

    okay, spit it out. Who’s the carrot cake?

  27. lelangir says:

    Get thee to a Jurassic era.

  28. Laguna Loire says:

    Why don’t you do the opposite and post more HERE and less THERE…

  29. Epi says:

    Team blog? Nice… you sellout. 🙂

  30. Baka-Raptor says:

    @CCY: Anything you can do, I can do better…

    @biankita: -1 updates per month. Instead of adding new stuff, I’ll actually be taking stuff down.

    @digitalboy: The cake is a lie?

    @shirokiryuu: If only my cake were as sweet as you 🙂

    @Hyunk: Neither can I, so I don’t proofread my posts there. Don’t tell Riex.

    @lolikitsune: Get thee to a nunnery.

    @kanzeon: Get thee to a tembloggery.

    @Toonleap & Kairu: Get thee to a bakery.

    @issa-sa: Get thee to an Antique Bakery.

    @Omisyth: Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

    @blissmo: Good point, there isn’t any meat on it.

    @JLeeson: Xephfrye.

    @lelangir: First of all, Jurassic doesn’t refer to an era. Mesozoic was the era; Jurassic was one of its periods. Second of all, Raptors didn’t come about until the Late Cretaceous period, which took place millions of years after the Jurassic period. You need to be reeducated about dinosaurs. Get thee to a museum of natural history.

    @Laguna: Because I’m a sellout.

    @Epi: Thank you! I’ve failed at selling out every time I’ve tried. It’s nice to finally get it right.

  31. Hyunk says:

    Your PR will drop back down to 0 ! Have you forgot that?

  32. Michael says:

    Sellout. My Code Geass faggotry > you selling out.

  33. “A variety cake is a lot like a team blog. One slice is inevitably better than the rest, and some loser gets stuck being the carrot cake. Fill in the rest of the metaphor yourselves.”


    Are you the chokolate cake? Or are you the chocolate cake? Or are you the carrot cake?

    Who knows 😛

  34. Punktaku says:

    You haven’t done a very good job at selling out. Where’s all the pop ups and advertisements plastered all over your website?

  35. Gargron says:

    I added you to my blogroll, it should share some of my PR with you.

    May I add some quotes of you to my quote rotator?

  36. “I added you to my blogroll, it should share some of my PR with you.”

    Let’s share in the love…
    I just added you to my newly created affiliate section of my homepage.

    Let the hippy love commence! 😀

  37. btw thanks for adding me to your blogroll…

  38. So, let me get this straight… you have time to join a team blog, but you don’t have time to keep up with the anti-Eli stuff? Lame.

  39. beanbrew says:

    You are such a sell out. ;P

  40. […] the rest of your post, make the title of a certain blog post that will make them curious. Like a title that you are sure that the readers dont know and inside the post is the meaning of the i-dont-know […]
