All U.S. Internet Providers will be policing downloads by July 12, 2012
Seriously. WHAT THE FLYING FUCK WORLD.

"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."

The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. I don't know if they will crack down on torrents only, or if it is up to the internet provider. I get the sense it is up to the internet provider. So some people could get away with downloading non torrents, while others might get their internet service cut off. I urge you to click it and read, as we all know people who download.

No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly. I'm so sorry my friends. I don't even know if BT Guard will work to protect you, but I would google it if I were you. It is a professional service that supposedly can protect you from the invasive eyes of your internet provider.

Just, my friends, please make each other aware. Please be aware of the date JULY 12TH. Mark your calendar and double check with your internet provider by then. If you start receiving notices of downloaded activity, this is why. And your internet service could be throttled or cut off.

Fuck. This. Shit.

from me to all of you--

Everyone:

I wish you the happiest of Christmases, Solstices, Hanukkahs, Kwanzaas, other holidays, general holidays, or Sundays. For those of you who are alone or sad this season, I wish you could come to my house where my family would cook you massive amounts of food and you could sit in front of a warm fireplace. You are all in my thoughts.

Thoughts on moving to dreamwidth will be posted after Christmas, because I'm not dealing with it here or now. D:

Merry Christmas!

Thanks, NPR! I'm so glad you're sticking up for us. :D

oh hey, I can post on this site too.

HI GAIZ FORGIVE ME

I've been keeping up with my flist, but I haven't posted in like a month or something and SO MUCH has happened so I'm not sure where to start.

Actually, this post I'll just talk about the good things, there were a lot, and not the bad things at all.

Went home to Iowa to surprise my mom for her sixtieth birthday. She was surprised! It was great.

THEN THEN THEN my 21st birthday happened and the rugby girls threw me an awesome party and well I mean it was my 21st and it was fucking EXCELLENT and it's great and so yeah, that happened.

Then I went home and my friends from high school and my mom conspired to throw me a surprise party because I told mom I'd never had one (I also told her I didn't want to be the surprisee, I'd rather be the surpriser, but the party was pretty low-key so it was perfect). I was pleasantly surprised without being embarrassed and great fun was had by all.

Then I went to a bar for the first time, it was a gay bar, and HLBF and I hung out with a bunch of old queers (as they described themselves, they were only in their mid-thirties) before smoking weed in a church parking lot. We also smoked before going to the bar, in the park, a five minute hike from the car in the dark and the mud by the creek. It was awesome.

And NOW NOW NOW NOW I'm in fucking CANADA and it's fucking BRILLIANT and I've only been here like an hour but I'm loving it so much. Super super stoked, guys. Gonna be awesome.

So Imma go explore and I promise to update more often, really. I love you.

Sorry I've not been around recently: between my class, the musical, and being sick I've been kind of not up for posting. Sigh.

Anyway, though, I wanted to wish all you Americans a Happy Thanksgiving, and everyone else a happy Thursday! Love you all, have a wonderful day. :D

Yet another reason I desperately want to see Inception...



HANS ZIMMER YOU FUCKING BRILLIANT BRILLIANT MAN.

I'm off Thursday so I believe I will be instigating a field trip into West Des Moines to go see it. Most of the theatres closer will be showing stuff that released last weekend, I think.

Seishrou, Subaru, Carly Simon, and You; hiatus-ish

So, who wants to make or find me a half-crack, half-serious (or completely crack or completely serious) AMV of Seishirou/Subaru to "You're So Vain?"

BECAUSE YES. PLEASE.

Secondly, animeiowa is in a week, so I may be gone for a while, cause I'm way behind on the whole cosplay thing. I will try to check the flist, but I might not get around to it. >.>

I love you all and will talk to you soon!

...every time I see a toyota highlander I am compelled to shout, "there can only be one!"

I really enjoy indulging that compulsion.

my little baby's all grown up and successfully using her cell phone!

...otherwise known as, There's an app for that!

That's right, am typing this from my phone. I used to have a boulder--that is, an indestructophone, but dad gave me his droid because it sucks the battery too fast for him and he thinks I want a smartphone. I do, but not desperately. Then again, a) I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth, b) it is quite nice to work with a real, if small, qwerty keyboard, and 3)it was really, really nice of him and we're getting along super well and I don't want to jeopardize that by not accepting what is sort of a peace offering (as gifts between us always are), and I've kind of fallen in love with the fact that I can get daily Calvin & Hobbes comics.

At any rate, it's pretty nice. We'll just have to see if it's loud enough to wake me up tomorrow morning.

raaaage

From [livejournal.com profile] synecdochic, your new rage stroke for the week:

* Gender will be a mandatory field at account creation, and it will be able to appear public on one's profile. (I can't tell if people with existing gender specification will be defaulted to "nobody can see it" or "everybody can see it".) (Subsequent changelog reading indicates that the public specificity has since been removed. It is unknown whether this is to require public specificity in the future or if it will remain private.)

* LiveJournal is removing the Unspecified option for the gender field. That's right: you get to be male or female. Period. That's it. (Source.)

If this pisses you off as much as it pisses me off, go to Edit Profile and select Unspecified for your gender option. Then, go to http://www.livejournal.com/contact/?dept=feedback and politely register your displeasure. (The people who read and process Feedback are not the people who make the decisions. They are often the people who are yelling internally about the decisions.)

(This will likely take place at the next code push, which given LJ's history will be either this Thursday or next, so spread the word fast, especially to the genderqueer community. After that point, you will no longer be able to pick "Unspecified" as your gender.)

Here is what I wrote; copy and paste as much as you'd like:

feedback letter )

To also reach someone who's higher up the food chain than the poor staff members who have to read and reply to Feedback, also email anjelika@livejournalinc.com who is Anjelika, GM of US operations.

This is BULLSHIT, guys. There is no other way to put it. LJ is someplace I love and I frankly want to keep it that way.

I LOVE YOU ALLLLLLL!
