I was so excited to do a review of Homicidal GummiBear – what a great name! It’s rife with possibilities for a funny site design, and the writing is sure to be hilarious. Right? Right? Unfortunately, the design is quite boring and didn’t lead me to great expectations.
I couldn’t find any concrete information on Jessy, but I strongly suspect she’s between the ages of 13 and 15. There’s your standard teen angst type of thing going on here – will they like me if I am my own person?, spreading rumors about her classmates’ sexuality, drug dabbling claims, etc. Also included are lots of little quizzes and paste ups of her instant messager conversations. This seems like a very personal journal written for the benefit of Jessy and her friends only. It’s written in such a way that I can’t imagine anyone else having the willpower to read through all the entries if you don’t already know Jessy personally.
Homicidal GummiBear is not an attractive site. Considering who I think Jessy might be and the fact that she has chosen DeadJournal to host her blog, perhaps that is the point. Regardless, there are some serious problems. I can overlook the lack of capitalization if the writing is good. However, that is not the case here at all. Atrocious grammar and glaring spelling errors make for a confusing read, not to mention the overuse of ‘net speak/’net spelling. The purple text on black background makes the eyes go buggy after a while.
There are no extras at Homicidal GummiBear. Period. The DeadJournal userinfo page provided absolutely no information at all. There is no guestbook, no commenting capability, nothing.
I can’t think of a reason to visit this site unless you are a big fan of teen angst, or if you are a friend of Jessy’s.
