…the Author:

Sibyl Arnett is a slightly obsessive woman who wanted a place to put her thoughts down in longer than 140 characters/without a microphone needing to be involved, and decided that starting a whole blog for various projects would be a good catch-all for them. In a slight bit of ego, she also puts up journals that are effectively just cheap therapy and tries to work through personal issues amidst the actually entertaining stuff.

…the Site(‘s Name):

Stolen without shame from the author’s first introduction to gabba (note: epileptics beware), it seemed like a good name for a site that was not going to be to everyone’s taste, but probably hit like a rocket with the correct niche. Bonus: the domain was free since whoever owned it prior let it lapse. Said author is guaranteed to recreate that tribute page someday as a side-page on this site.
