Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] dynamicsymmetry at Congress wants to take away your internet.
Folks, I know you're tired of me yelling at you, but you should be aware that there's a hearing this morning being held by the US House Judiciary Committee on a "copyright" bill that will essentially break the entire internet.

You like the internet, right? I mean, you're here.

From the link above:

As drafted, the legislation would grant the government and private parties unprecedented power to interfere with the Internet's domain name system (DNS). The government would be able to force ISPs and search engines to redirect or dump users' attempts to reach certain websites' URLs. In response, third parties will woo average users to alternative servers that offer access to the entire Internet (not just the newly censored U.S. version), which will create new computer security vulnerabilities as the reliability and universality of the DNS evaporates.

It gets worse: Under SOPA's provisions, service providers (including hosting services) would be under new pressure to monitor and police their users’ activities. While PROTECT-IP targeted sites “dedicated to infringing activities,” SOPA targets websites that simply don’t do enough to track and police infringement (and it is not at all clear what would be enough). And it creates new powers to shut down folks who provide tools to help users get access to the Internet the rest of the world sees (not just the “U.S. authorized version”).


This is being framed as an attempt to fight hackers and pirates. Don't buy it. And don't think for a minute that it's going to stop there. This is bad. And at the hearing today, only one opponent of the bill is being allowed to testify.

Please do whatever you can to fight this. Email congresspeople. Sign petitions. Yell about it in every venue you can.

There are so many of these where I've seen anywhere from 2-6 episodes... but oh well. And there are bunches of shows not on this list... like Voyagers!, The Closer, Burn Notice, Monty Python, Monarch of the Glen, Black Books, Eureka, Riptide, Simon and Simon, Buck Rogers....
gwendolyngrace: (RedDeath)
I'm back and on the way to recovery from Infinitus. It was a long week, a long drive home, and I dunno, I'm still kinda living in a fog. So here's a random list:

- I really hate silverfish. I also really hate spiders in the bathtub when I'm set to shower. (Yes, [livejournal.com profile] grouchyoldcoot, we jinxed it. There was one in there this morning.)

- Watching 'Rizzoli and Isles' - the establishing shots of Boston include the CLS building! (Also Charles Malik Whitfield is in this episode.) (I haven't watched this before so it's on trial.)

- I won one of the copies of [livejournal.com profile] naominovik's new book! It was waiting when I got home.

- I'm sort of living in my bedroom because that's where the A/C unit is.

- I caved. I joined Facebook. I'm going to hate this. Fuck. [livejournal.com profile] etakyma is not allowed to go away again.

- Fiddler got nominated for 13 DASH awards. None of them my personal nomination, but best musical ensemble - that's cool.

- Alternity continues to be awesome.

- I finished Nameless. I enjoyed it.

- I've been on a very strange sleep / wake schedule since getting back Thursday. I think I'm finally on an even keel. Well, I woke up at 8 AM and it's 10 and I haven't napped yet. So I'll go to bed in a while and hopefully this will trend, instead of waking, napping for an hour or two every few hours, and getting in about 16 hours of sleep during the course of the day but at very odd intervals (like, 2:30-7 PM and 9-11:30 AM. ACK.)


- OMG I have so much BOOZE. Gang, everyone knew I was driving home so they gave me all their alcohol. And their food. So much food! So much alcohol! Unemployed me is grateful but the booze is more than I'll probably drink in two years. So it'll come to Pennsic with me. I hope the pre-mixed V/T doesn't go completely utterly flat and nasty (it's in the fridge to help guard against that). So... yeah. thanks. But wow, LOTS of booze.


- I still love the movie "Far from Heaven" - it was on last night and it's still beautiful. Sad, and difficult and terrible, but gorgeous.

- I'm still unemployed. I wonder how long it will take for the new extended benefits to get paid? I did motivate myself to apply for a job today, so that's a positive sign.

- Must work on lines! Must make more chemises. Must MOTIVATE.

- I need to finish unpacking and do laundry. Bleah.

- I made it to the grocery store! More milk. Bananas, cheese, bread. I have more than junk food, yay!

- I have a small rant, but I will refrain for now. It's really nothing important.

- Oh, and I forgot: I now have a light sabre on my phone. It's not the best app, but my phone is now complete. :)

Yeah. I'm really going to regret signing on to Facebook. I can tell. I hate it already.
gwendolyngrace: (bela)
I haven't updated in a bit.

Well. My week, let me show you it )


Oh, I think I may have at least partially dislodged some of the writer's block on my original novel. But only a toehold. And I had a couple ideas about a short story I've been invited to submit to another anthology, though nothing is flowing yet on that, just more thoughts. But it's some progress, anyway.

Alternity continues to be awesome, but a little slow at the moment. The muses are taking a breather, I guess.


Well, there you go. That's what's up with me.


Oh! Memage:

What was the #1 song the day you were born? Google the date and #1 song and then post your #1 song on your LJ - preferably with a Youtube vid if you can find one!

Well, according to Billboard, it was Al Green's "Let's Stay Together." And here is a vid from 1972, the very year in question:



Yeah, I don't even know what this is supposed to signify. But check out the blazer!

It should have been one more day, but Human Resources offered to extend me one more week (to shift things like COBRA into next year), and because he's determined to suck every ounce out of me, Boss D expects me to be in the office during that time. Although, to be fair, I clarified with him later and he backed off on that - "Oh, no. I fully expect you to do what you need to do for you, but if there are things that you can continue to push forward, that would be really helpful. And I don't want anyone getting the idea that you should be burning vacation for that week." Which, the last part? Is BS - because no one would blink.

But whatever. Basically I have to pop in and out for the week - I figure no more than 3 hours or so a day, unless there's something specific I need to be around for. But Friday will definitely only be a couple hours, and then immediately off to Rochester before Masked Ball.

Meanwhile, here it is Thanksgiving. My holiday )

Anyway - everyone else is listing their thanks and so, lemming-like:

I'm thankful for my friends, the family I have chosen for myself.

I'm thankful for the online communities, fandoms and friends, who are there for each other even when we're hundreds of miles apart.

I'm thankful for the opportunities I've had over the last ten years, to travel (not as extensively as I'd like, but y'know - California, Texas, and New Mexico were all new within the last two years), to get to go to VIP nights and special events in the HP world, and occasionally get treated like a sort of important person too.

I'm thankful that HPEF has done so well (comparatively) in its 7 years so far and I'm thankful that there are folks running Infinitus so I don't have to.

I'm thankful that I can actually call myself a professional writer, something my teachers alway said I'd be. Published author and professional actor have always been two of my goals - although again, not necessarily "grand scale" but nonetheless, something.

I'm thankful that I have learned to live within my means. I don't deny myself little luxuries from time to time, but I try not to over-extend myself. That means that with this layoff looming, I've got some savings laid by. Not a lot, but enough to make it to the next step.

I'm thankful for the things I've learned in all my jobs - both the good and the bad. I've had great examples of management and motivation and I've seen where leaders go astray. I'm thankful for recognizing the things that push my buttons and knowing when it's time to detox from a poisonous situation.

I'm thankful for Alternity. It sounds silly, but I was really worried at first that getting into the game would take over my life. And it sorta has, but not to the exclusion of all else (I hope), and in the meantime it's given me some creative outlet when not much else in my life was feeling creative. Plus it's hella fun.

I'm thankful for cozy socks and fuzzy blankets and movies and pyjamas and hot tea.

20 Questions Meme )

And unrelated, OMG SPN Season 4 in TWO HOURS!
gwendolyngrace: (PA!Dean)
Gakked from [livejournal.com profile] briony530. Did you think I could resist?

Entertainment Weekly's list of the top movies of the last 25 years. With my comments, of course. (Many of these are things I've Netflicked over the last two years)

Go through their list and BOLD the ones you have seen and underline the ones you own on video or DVD.

1. Pulp Fiction (1994) – Not a Tarentino fan (though I liked Kill Bill 1&2)
2. The Lord of the Rings trilogy (2001-03) – Cried three times in Fellowship – all because of architecture.
3. Titanic (1997) - Jack! Rose! Jack! Rose! Swear if they went below one more time I would have hurled something at the screen. But the underwater footage, the montage when the ship sank, and the schmoopy ending? Yeah, I cried. Amazing depiction of the real-life stuff; horrible romance.
4. Blue Velvet (1986)
5. Toy Story (1995) - And thus began the awesomeness that is Pixar.
6. Saving Private Ryan (1998) – If you’re not into gore, get past the first battle sequence, because after that, it’s a very human story. And in its way as important as Schindler's List. (I'd also put Amistad on here, but it's not as flashy.)
7. Hannah and Her Sisters (1986)
8. The Silence of the Lambs (1991) - This movie freaked my shit out. I think I can watch it now, but the first time I had nightmares for a week.
9. Die Hard (1988) – Amazingly, I’d never seen this all the way through until a few months ago.
10. Moulin Rouge (2001) - I do have this movie in my house, but I didn’t purchase it. It’s Mom’s copy.
11. This Is Spinal Tap (1984) - Eleven.
12. The Matrix (1999) - I keep meaning to pick this up, but then, I also keep meaning to see the 2nd and 3rd ones - even if they do suck.
13. GoodFellas (1990)
14. Crumb (1995)
15. Edward Scissorhands (1990)
16. Boogie Nights (1997)
17. Jerry Maguire (1996)
18. Do the Right Thing (1989)
19. Casino Royale (2006) – again, technically in my house, but the borrowed from my mother. Ugh. What a hot mess this film was.
20. The Lion King (1994) - Still awesome.
21. Schindler's List (1993) – the kind of film I can only watch once about every 7 years. (True story: my ex-husband had a colleague in grad school whose mother went to see this movie and spontaneously remembered that she had spent several years living/hiding with a family of Polish Catholics while her real family had been in a concentration camp. Turned out that her father survived, came to collect her, and the family didn't want to give her back. It was all so traumatic that she had literally suppressed the memories all those years...until seeing this film. Now that's powerful.)
22. Rushmore (1998)
23. Memento (2001) - Someone told me there's a way to watch this in chronological order. I really want to figure out how to do that.
24. A Room With a View (1986) - Briony, I agree with you; I think Remains of the Day is a much better choice. But oh, well. This one really did usher in the Merchant/Ivory era, I guess.
25. Shrek (2001)
26. Hoop Dreams (1994)
27. Aliens (1986) - I saw this movie before I saw Alien. My mother and a friend of hers took me to the movies with the plan that I'd see something else. But for some reason I couldn't see the film I'd wanted to see, so they took me in with them to this one. I remember Liz giving me a very hurried explanation about the first film, an "all you need to know" primer. (I saw T2 the same way, btw, but with college friends, not my mom.) Whereas Alien is Sci-Fi / Horror, this one is all Action. Pure Action. IT ROCKS. "Nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure."
28. Wings of Desire (1988) - This is a trippy, weird, sweet, bizarre, beautiful tone poem of a movie. It's also much, much better than the remake (City of Angels). Plus, Peter Falk.
29. The Bourne Supremacy (2004)
30. When Harry Met Sally... (1989)
31. Brokeback Mountain (2005) - I'm glad they made it, but I hope that in 10 years, it will seem quaint and outlandish.
32. Fight Club (1999) - Weird, weird film. I'm still not sure if I liked it.
33. The Breakfast Club (1985)
34. Fargo (1996)
35. The Incredibles (2004) - Actually, I can't remember if I have this currently or if it's at Mom's.
36. Spider-Man 2 (2004) – pretty sure Mom has this, too. What a mess.
37. Pretty Woman (1990)
38. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) - Here's the thing. I hate Jim Carrey. But this movie proves he can ACT. And the problem is that once I see that, I'm even more disappointed when he's in films and fails to do so at all. But the movie is really interesting and weird and worth seeing.
39. The Sixth Sense (1999)
40. Speed (1994) – I can’t remember if I’ve seen this all the way through. Cable, not Netflix.
41. Dazed and Confused (1993)
42. Clueless (1995) - Emma in like, the Valley. Fer Sure!
43. Gladiator (2000) - And the soundtrack.
44. The Player (1992)
45. Rain Man (1988)
46. Children of Men (2006)
47. Men in Black (1997)
48. Scarface (1983)
49. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000) - And the soundtrack.
50. The Piano (1993)
51. There Will Be Blood (2007)
52. The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad (1988) - SO NOT my kind of movie.
53. The Truman Show (1998) - Again, proof that Carrey can act, when he's directed well and held in. Jim, please, take a tip from Robin Williams: restraint.
54. Fatal Attraction (1987) - I think I know all I need to know about this, but no, never saw it.
55. Risky Business (1983).
56. The Lives of Others (2006)
57. There’s Something About Mary (1998)
58. Ghostbusters (1984) - and like Princess Bride I think I can probably quote the whole darn movie, practically.
59. L.A. Confidential (1997)
60. Scream (1996)
61. Beverly Hills Cop (1984)
62. sex, lies and videotape (1989) - I think it's on my Netflick list.
63. Big (1988)
64. No Country For Old Men (2007)
65. Dirty Dancing (1987)
66. Natural Born Killers (1994)
67. Donnie Brasco (1997)
68. Witness (1985)
69. All About My Mother (1999)
70. Broadcast News (1987) - I've seen bits and pieces on cable, but no, never all of it.
71. Unforgiven (1992)
72. Thelma & Louise (1991)
73. Office Space (1999) - Know all the jokes, I think.
74. Drugstore Cowboy (1989)
75. Out of Africa (1985)
76. The Departed (2006)
77. Sid and Nancy (1986) - Want to see
78. Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)
79. Waiting for Guffman (1996) - As a theatre person, this movie was almost too painful. But then the production itself and the music were surprising. Kudos to McKean and Guest.
80. Michael Clayton (2007)
81. Moonstruck (1987)
82. Lost in Translation (2003) - Unfortunately, I think it was.
83. Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn (1987)
84. Sideways (2004)
85. The 40 Year-Old Virgin (2005)
86. Y Tu Mamá También (2002) - I remember when the slash community was BUZZING about this because Cuaron got picked to direct POA. So we all ran out and got the unrated version. Eh. It was okay.
87. Swingers (1996)
88. Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997) – hell, no.
89. Breaking the Waves (1996)
90. Napoleon Dynamite (2004)
91. Back to the Future (1985) - I still want my jet-powered skateboard.
92. Menace II Society (1993)
93. Ed Wood (1994)
94. Full Metal Jacket (1987)
95. In the Mood for Love (2001)
96. Far From Heaven (2002) – This is a beautiful film in every aspect. It was amazing and heartbreaking and real. The attention to detail and the performances of each of the main characters was staggering.
97. Glory (1989)
98. The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)
99. The Blair Witch Project (1999) – they all deserved to get killed, if you ask me.
100. South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut (1999)

Because I feel like it. No looking them up! (I didn't.)

Guess the songs*:

1. I could become a frying pan or a brand new Chevrolet. - guessed by [livejournal.com profile] etakyma

2. So if you care to find me, look to the western skies. - guessed by [livejournal.com profile] sylke (and [livejournal.com profile] etakyma, but she didn't post because she's sitting right here) and by many others (the most guessed so far!)

3. My intuition told me you'd come on the scene. - guessed by [livejournal.com profile] etakyma

4. Come saddle my horses and call out my men!

5. That's it! That's right! I've found myself a partner who knows my style.

6. Near a soldier, an ex-marine with a tattooed dagger and an eagle trembling....

7. Let loose from the noose that's kept me hangin' about-- - guessed by [livejournal.com profile] roguebitch

8. Destiny beckons; I never reckoned second best.... - guessed by [livejournal.com profile] etakyma

9. Wide as a mile--the Shieldwall.... - guessed by [livejournal.com profile] sylke

10. Do not fear! We'll be here! Courageous are we.


*I really highly doubt any one person will get *all* of these, especially since there's a...broad range of songs represented here. And some are really obscure. But hey, why not?


Can you guess that I have a fondness for internal rhyme?

I am not surprised:


Your Score: Older Futhark


You scored




Language of the Norse, Older Futhark! Thirty symbols, all told. And no hardier, more warrior-like tongue has ever graced the longships of the Viki or left the Celts and Saxons in such quivering fear. There's only one drawback, that being you died 800 years ago.

I was at skip=540. Yeah.

Anyway, [livejournal.com profile] ficwriter1966 tagged me:

Rules: Each player of this game starts off with 10 weird things/habits/little known facts about yourself. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 10 weird habits/things/little known facts as well as state this rule clearly. At the end you need to choose 10 people to be tagged and list their names.


Hm. I did one of these recently-ish. But okay, here goes:

1. I don't use a top sheet on my bed. I have an acrylic blanket that I've used since I was in high school, and I wash it as-needed, but sheets just wind up bunched around my neck.

2. I'm also an untuck monster. And the bedding isn't comfortable until it's been left unmade for at least three days.

3. I've used construction and/or steel-toed boots as winter boots since I was in college. Generally boys' as they're roomy enough for rag wool socks. I LOVE boots, but my calves are too thick for the cut of the shank on most women's boots.

4. I totally don't wash my dishes until the sink is overflowing or the dish I want to use is dirty and I need it.

5. I know I've used this one before, but: There's a soundtrack running in my head 24/7 and it's on random access. The slightest trigger can make me spontaneously break into snatches of song. Also, as proved at last night's holiday party, I know every song ever. ;^D No, not really. It just seems like it.

6. I'm a complete clothes horse, but if I had any say about it, I'd wear jeans and t-shirts pretty much all the time.

7. I have absolutely no idea what to write for today's Monday Meta over at [livejournal.com profile] wee_chesters. Oh, that's not a habit? meh. It's a little known fact. Deal.

8. I've never held a job that took as many hours in the day as I had to log. No matter what the job I've had, I've generally always been able to keep my work up to date and still have time for (sometimes lots of) personal stuff, like checking email, reading and writing fic, and oh, yeah, LJ memes. (This job may be changing that!)

9. I can write without looking at the paper. Picked this skill up from a drama teacher in college (Yes, some of you probably know who!) and find it incredibly useful. Except for when I occasionally write all on the same line. Oops.

10. Not little known, but I'm a horrible correspondent. I just suck at returning emails, phone calls, etc. Holiday cards? Forget it.

10A. I'm really good at putting things down. As in, when I'm supposed to pass something on, like a cloven fruit or tagging other people? I put the thing down. And then I don't necessarily remember where I left it.

In other words, if you want to be tagged, consider yourself tagged.
