Fucking Internet....

From now on whenever I have trouble accessing a website my reaction is apparently going to be: Oh what the hell did the US government do now?!!!! How is THIS site illegal?!!!*

I am still missing Megaupload like a missing limb. I don't think I appreciated it enough while it was here, and I miss it loads now that it's gone. So sad.

WHAT IS THE INTERNET FOR IF NOT PORN AND ILLEGAL DOWNLOADS??!!!!

And you just KNOW they're going to go after the porn next.

*I can't get my facebook to load and I'm convinced that the government has something to do with it.

The only way is to hit them where it hurts. Their profit margins. March 2012 is the end of the First Quarter in economic reports world wide. Do not buy a single record. Do not download a single song, legally or illegally. Do not go to see a single film in cinemas, or download a copy. Do not buy a DVD in the stores. Do not buy a videogame. Do not buy a single book or magazine. Wait the four weeks to buy them in April: see a film later, etc... Holding out for just four weeks, maximum, will leave a gaping hole in media companies profits for the first quarter, an economic hit which will in turn be observed by governments world wide as stocks and shares will blip from a large enough loss of incomes. This action will give a statement of intent: "We will not tolerate the Media Industries' lobbying for legislation that will censor the internet."

Edited to add my own thoughts (not part of the original reddit call for action) And if you do not feel like taking a total break and perhaps want just a trial separation or couple's counseling, then perhaps consider Black March Lite 2.0 = spend, but spend money on those content creators and independent retailers who came out against SOPA/PIPA.  And tell them why you're buying their products in March.  There are many of them.

And for those who favor the more targeted boycott, you can find info  here.  But no matter which,  you can participate and you can tailor your level of participation.  We have the tools, the will and the strength to take a stand.

Seriously...?

So the FBI and the Department of Justice have NOTHING better to do than to take down the nefarious megaupload? So everything else in the U.S. is completely, 100% perfect?

BULLFUCKINGSHIT!

I honestly cannot believe that this was deemed so important for the federal government. I signed petitions and contacted my congressman/senators about sopa, but that's politicians pandering to the power of lobbyists working on behalf of the entertainment industry. This? I don't even know.

Seriously...the FBI? The DOJ?

How about they go after REAL threats. Like the hackers that create viruses, like the one that nearly destroyed my computer a month ago? Or those that plant credit card skimmers at self check-outs in local grocery stores and steal a shitload of credit card numbers? No! It's much more important to go after a website that allows people to upload/download movies, music and shit.

And before you start whining to me that it's the poor guy in the editing room or the sound mixer or the grip that's getting screwed out of his feeble paycheck? That just speaks louder about how fucked up some industries are and how perhaps there should be salary caps on said professions. Like professional athletics, television and film actors, directors and what passes for a musician nowadays. No person "needs" to make $3.5 million. And since that's considered a "lowball" salary, I think that says enough.

Holy fucking shit....

Was looking at randomness on tumblr and stumbled upon pics of Michael Fassbender naked. Full frontal naked.

It appears as though the picks are from Shame, which he is supposed to be awesome in and the movie looks really good- I've been thinking about going to see it next week. I apparently missed the memo about the nakedness.

*blinks*

My...he is gifted.

But They're So in Love....

I sometimes feel like fics should have a warning for a sad ending. I'm not talking about character death, but just when things for the pairing don't work out and there's heartbreak without any resolution. Sometimes I need some prep for a fic to emotionally bitchslap me. Also if it's definitely not something to read while PMSing.

It's just that while you're reading a fic (particularly a long one) you get so invested and you're reading the fic in the first place because it's a pairing that you love and even though you love to put them through the proverbial emotional meat grinder, you still want some hope at the end. I'm not talking the happily ever after bullshit, though at times I'm so not opposed to that, but some resolution.

I just need to be prepared if I'm going to be emotionally flayed by a fic is all.

I need to be a lot more careful when working on a manip. I'm pretty sure that I was holding my head at a horrible angle and leaning forward into the monitor. Now my neck hurts like hell. Ow.

Also, trying to crosspost from dreamwidth for the first time. I would prefer to crosspost from LJ to DW, but couldn't see how. Lame.

Cracky dialogue shouldn't be this hard to make up....

I'm working on my cracky X-Men series and having SUCH writer's block with this installment that I'm working on. It's being such a bitch!

Maybe it's some of the truly crappy holiday fic out now. Seriously, do people not get that Erik is JEWISH? He would NOT be celebrating Christmas. Did they not get the whole part of the movie about the holocaust and the concentration camp and yellow star on his jacket and you know...half the damn plot of the movie (or at least the motivation for it)?!

Even if, and it's a BIG IF, he didn't want to celebrate Chanukah, he wouldn't be celebrating Christmas people! In fact, he probably would acknowledge Chanukah as a way of saying Fuck you to the Nazis, as I think he would do with all relevant holidays.

I just get very annoyed at the presumption that everyone *loves* Christmas and wants to join in the celebration, regardless of their actual religion or holiday this time of year.

Beware something popping up called vista internet security that looks like an anti-virus program*

My computer got a massive EVIL virus this past Sunday that took me 10 hours to finally remove. I'm still not 100% convinced that it's gone, but that might be the paranoia talking. It is a trojan horse that turns off your anti-virus software and then prevents you from being able to open almost all programs.

AND IT IS EVIL!!

I have a friend who fixes computers for a living (who told me that I should have called him, but who thinks of that amidst a panic @midnight) who is recommending that I reformat my hard drive. I may go with this option, but I'm not sure. And after I finished everything and was heading to bed finally, every joint in my body was literally cracking. OY. EVIL!!!

In all my years, this was my first computer virus.

* This virus call can be named Vista or XP or Win7 and Microsoft was basically no help as it's quite volatile and this was the 2012 version (the newest) and I wasn't willing to spend $99 for Microsoft to remotely connect and guarantee a fix.

Civilization....!

Back home and back with my fast internet. *Cuddles it*

Unless you have experience trying to still use dial-up in this day and age for an extended period of time, you have NO idea how frustrating it is! Especially when you're trying to do updates and whatnot and you have to take a laptop to the library, Starbucks, Cafe place that has free wi-fi. But it's not really worth if for my mom to get hispeed, 'cuz she pretty much just checks her email.

Also, I'm fighting off a headache for 2 days. OY!

But, I'm working on the next part of my X-Men First Class fic and reading tons. So, silver lining?

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3


Super big graphic. Lots o' foul language.

I'm surrounded by idiots )

Still looking for a title. Have had some good suggestions, but this won't be entirely facebook centered. In fact next part might be text messages, so it should encompass both methods.

All of your feedback and love is making my day! And making me blush :)

Graphic: X-Men First Class

Raven reacts to the turtleneck incident.

A sequel to the Text convo here between Charles & Erik.
Super big graphic. Some foul language.

Magneto is a douchebag! )

Note whose facebook it is. That took a LOT of time. Someone's sitting back enjoying the drama. I will be continuing this, with Erik & Charles discussing the situation with Raven, but I've been working on this since midnight and my neck hurts.

ETA: Sorry if at first this did not post correctly. Photobucket would not let it post at its full size and it really needs to be in order to be legible. Now, just click on it and it will eventually let you zoom.

Erik & Charles discuss Raven's nudist tendencies via text

It's a graphic, so beware slow connectors.
Makes brief mention of a comic book canon character.

Canon or Fanon...?

Apparently, I missed the part in X-Men: First Class where it was mentioned that Sean (aka Banshee) was the world's biggest pothead.

Everyone else on the planet who saw the movie seems to have caught the message, but I managed to miss it. Huh.

*iz confused*

What the Fuck....?

So, I have a confession:
I have been reading X-Men: First Class mpreg fic.
And I LIKE it!
*flails*
*hangs head in abject shame*

I feel like I've crossed over to the dark side of fandom...something.

But it's so well written! And there's a very plausible reason for Charles to be having Erik's babies o' love (secondary mutation duh!) and there are no ass!babies to be had. Babies are birthed via Cesarean Section and so far I have not come across one discussing Charles breast feeding (because lactating manboobs are a personal squick) and it's soooo good! The ANGST! The LOVE!! The telepath on pregnancy hormones drama!!

In final note XMFC has eaten my brain. And my moral fandom/fanfic fiber. And I love it! Do not expect any relative coherency in the forseeable future.

Also Tumblr is the SHIT(!), though I'm still trying to figure it out.

And I re-pierced a hole in my ear, so now that's throbbing and annoying.

I'm not even sure if this post made sense, so feel free to move along, nothing to see here.

"Shame on you...That's dirty!"

I was watching a vid of an Adam Lambert performance and he goes around introducing his band and when he introduced his bass player that he makes out with, he announced how people write fanfic about him (the bassist) and that it's "dirty".

Cracked my shit up for a good solid 5 minutes.

Oh, Adam Lambert is just adorable.

Totally Groovy Mutant Gay Love....

I have been completely, utterly, irrevocably sucked into X-Men: First Class and the amazingness that is the Charles/Erik Love.

OMG PEOPLE THEIR UNBREAKABLE LOVE IS THE MOST AMAZING MUTATION EVER!

Anyway, I finally have access to fast internet, so I was browsing youtube for vids and stumbled upon this one. Now, the creator intended it to be cracky, but I think it's rather poignant. So if you love Erik/Charles and if you don't, you don't know what you're missing. The sexy...THE SEXXY!! and the music of Wicked I highly rec watching this:




ETA: Oooh! And a NSFW Sexy one! Yummy!! (not to Wicked music)

Signal Boost: Return of the DDoS

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] deathpixie at Signal Boost: Return of the DDoS
For those wanting to know more about the recent DDoS attacks, yes, it looks like it was the Russian government trying to shut down the dissidents again.

As I said last time, while it's frustrating not to have access, LJ is a lot more than a social network platform. From the article:

"LiveJournal isn’t just a social network. It’s also a platform for organizing civic action. Dozens of network projects and groups mobilize people to solve specific problems — from defending the rights of political prisoners to saving endangered historic architecture in Moscow."

So while I know many are considering the move over to Dreamwidth and other such sites, supporting LJ is a way we can help support those who use it for more than a writing/roleplaying/social venue.


Also, as a FYI, LJ is giving paid users effected by the outage two weeks of paid time as compensation.

"You need to babysit the client until I get there...just nod your head and look pretty."*

I'm sticking my head in the proverbial fandom sand to avoid personal issues going on and I've gotta ask:

Is anyone else on here watching Suits?

It's on USA network, one of those new original summer series. But on top of that, I swear this is the gayest show on TV since QAF.

There are two male leads, Harvey & Mike. The sexual tension between them is staggering and palpable! Now they've had each slept with a requisite woman to show the audience their "straightness" but these two are so obvious fucking each other it is unbelieveable. The show is only on episode 5 and there is already quite a devoted little slash following.

And it is not just about the unbelieveable amount of ass fucking going on late night at a law firm pretty. It is amusing and smart and entertaining.

Yes, these two are fucking:
