"Cross current" sort of meant "counter culture," "junior" referred to the fact that it was intended for children ages eleven to fifteen, and "varsity" because we were supposed to be a team, I guess.

I tend not to respect aesthetic casing of proper nouns. I think my internal reasoning, such that it is, is that if there isn't an initial capital it won't stand out sufficiently, and if an initialism has only an initial capital it'll look like it's supposed to be pronounceable as a word. I also don't respect the PlayStation marketing team's insistence that it always be rendered in all-caps, because that's marketing bullhonky of the foulest flavour. Well, not even close. But it's still pretty foul marketing bullhonky. Do note, however, that I do render PlayStation, like BlackBerry with intercaps, because I'm an inconsistent idiot. And for a long time I would present the band Clouddead's name as they initially did, in inverse caps (i.e. cLOUDDEAD), because I'm a real moron.

I recently read an article fairly academic in tone, but written entirely in Livejournal case (i.e. no caps at all, because capital letters are ugly or something). I was surprised at how frustrating I found it, and how often I found myself questioning why someone would choose to do this. Which is funny, because some of the first websites I made were very much of the all-Verdana no-caps variety.

Very funny.

What was it we were talking about again?

You were going to explain why you didn't send the line to Null, thereby helping everyone forget that I took two weeks to finish my picture. Everything is James's fault!

Do they request that? Like, you can only say it if you yell it (I'm not gonna type it because it's night and I don't want to yell)? Not even God gets all caps.

It's how they always present it in their own materials (or at least it was during the PS3 era; not sure if it still is), but I don't remember whether it's just implicit that that's how they want it done, or if it was some sort of recommendation in a press kit sent out to media outlets that I heard about on a podcast. Not something the general public should really know let alone care about, but enough to catch my attention and irritate it.

This will require no fewer than four pictures, so making it into one will be quite something. I'll let you guys know.

I mean, you could always do four panels. Either way, should be a nice conclusion to this saga.
