LIVE-EVIL??
« on: March 26, 2005, 10:30:18 am »
I’ve been viewing subs from your group for sometime now and I enjoy the good quality. But, something has been raising my curiosity for quite a while! What are you guys all about? Since I don't seem to see any about us page or history I am wondering the meaning of your group's title? Does it have any significance? Does the second part of your title actually mean “EVIL”? If so, then why? Was it meant to be that way? Or does that have nothing to do with it at all?

I know I am asking a lot of questions and I probably seem like a nut to you, but when I go to your site that word EVIL just keeps jumping out at me.

Anyone who is in a position to know so, please explain as much as you can or please point me to the right page if this information is located somewhere on the site.

Easy.

Live-eviL.

Notice how the final L is? Just change the order of the word "eviL" and you will understand :)

:)

Basically the group's founder came up with a "badass name for a fansub group" at about 4AM one night, and made it his ambition to recruit people with the skills to fansub and create a group named Live-eviL. And that's all she wrote :)

Well thank you for your insight. I was holding out a little longer to see if there were any more replies or explanations, but it appears that is all.

Although the title Live-Evil has its obvious metaphoric traits, at least the way the graphic portrays it, I figured there may be a deeper meaning. The way the graphic shows it makes it appear that the inventor or creator intended the “Live” to have a mirror image that reflected another plausible derivative of itself. As all mirrors reflect, the derivative appears backwards. The thing that I see typed out all over the site is in all actuality the word “Evil” and I’m guessing because there is no probable way to show the text in a mirrored / backwards state or in a font that all browsers would recognize.

So from your explanation I can safely assume that the founder isn’t necessarily an “Evil” fanatic, but the group’s title containing the word evil is merely a coincidence. I am glad to hear that and my conscious has been eased in a sense. After all, truthfully, I wouldn’t want to endorse, associate with, or receive products or services in any way from any kind of company or organization that openly sanctions evilness. It doesn’t matter if I am getting the service for free or not.

Please inform me if I have come to a conclusion on this too soon and your organization or members within indeed do have other feelings about “evilness”. I really like the quality of your team’s work and I encourage you to keep going, but I like to keep myself protected, in a sense, from things I really am better off staying away from.

Oh, I always thought the name was a homage/rip-off of Black Sabbath's album of the same name. Linkage:
