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.

And/or

Baa

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?

I'm borrowing this post from [livejournal.com profile] heidi8:
In a follow-up to LJ's dropping of Basic Personal Accounts, LJ has also removed various Interests from the Popular Interests list includng "bisexuality", "fanfction", "fandom", "boys", "girls", "depression" and "faeries".

Yep, "fandom" no longer exists as a popular interest on LJ.

Honestly, the basic account thing...I can understand that. No, really. They have to fund the site somehow. But dropping "fandom" and "fanfiction" and "bisexuality"? Uh.... "Faeries?" WTF?

So, I'm participating in this on Friday. I hope y'all do, too.

ONE DAY CONTENT STRIKE
For one day, Friday, March 21, make no posts. Make no comments. Let there be NO new content added to LJ. DON'T VISIT LJ AT ALL. SUP obviously does not realize that Basic users have given something of value to them, that it is content that drives the site. So, for one 24-hour period, from midnight GMT to midnight GMT, let's see how many people we can get to pledge to contribute NO CONTENT. This will create a permanent downward spike in the daily-posts statistics, a permanent reminder of the power of the userbase. Full information at The Fox's Den. SPREAD THE WORD!

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.

And of course, I was pretty much ignoring LJ all weekend.

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.

[livejournal.com profile] elfundeb tagged me.

1 - List seven weird/quirky habits about myself
2 - Tag seven people to do the same
3 - not just say "whoever wants to do it" or refuse to tag people

The funny thing is that just before this started going around, I was thinking about quirky habits... not like publicly discoverable habits but the ones you'd *really* be embarrassed about if anyone knew. Things that gross *you* out, but you do anyway.

I won't include any of those.

1. I can't stand anything that separates my toes. Toe socks? Flip-flops? Right out. Can't have anything between the toes. This makes wearing tabi quite problematic. Quite separate from my own personal dislike of straps between (the first and second) metatarsals, I also *hate* flip-flops and the current shall-we-call-it-fashion in flip-flops. I don't care how studded or jewel-encrusted they are, they *never* look formal.

2. I like raisins by themselves, in trail mix, and (on a limited basis) in meat pies and other things where their texture/taste doesn't stand out. However, I don't like raisins in cereal, or cooked into most food (like kugel).

3. I really don't like seafood, except for fish sticks and Upstate NY-style fish fry (which is close enough to London-style fish and chips that that counts as a Good Thing). Yes, I moved to Boston. Shut up. (I used to like shrimp and clams, but got sick (on separate occasions) off both, improperly prepared, and now have acquired aversion to both.)

4. I'm a complete clothes horse. I have way too many articles of clothing, not even including garb. But I hardly ever get rid of anything because it's all for different kinds of situations - like work clothes vs. play clothes, vs. sweaty/painting/getting messed up clothes. Also shoes. WAY too many pairs of shoes. And for someone who loves clothing and shoes as much as I do, I don't care for them well. (But I also don't buy clothes often.)

5. Almost every food I really like involves some form of dairy. Thus if I'm ever put on a lactose-free or lactose-reduced diet, I'll be one sad puppy.

6. I frequently "cast" myself (and by extension, others, namely Amy) in the role(s) of characters in the books and shows and movies I like. (Even when I don't, muses of *other* characters tend to come visit and will natter on in my brain.) No, I'm not MPD, and no, I'm not schizophrenic. It just feels like it sometimes. ;^D

7. If someone's singing a song I know, it's extremely difficult for me to not pick up and either sing along or continue it in my head.

Hm. Well, those probably weren't as weird as I really am, but hey, I have to keep some secrets. ;^D

Tag? You say? I have no idea who has and hasn't been tagged. Did I mention my 8th quirky habit? I'm really good at putting things down. (Not so good at remembering where, or picking them back up.) Oh, okay: [livejournal.com profile] dicea, [livejournal.com profile] rani23, [livejournal.com profile] liamstliam, [livejournal.com profile] musesfool, [livejournal.com profile] elanurel, [livejournal.com profile] ballyharnon, and [livejournal.com profile] patrikia. But only if you want to. And you haven't already been tagged.


Incidentally, I watched the end of "Top Chef" last night (and btw, *$*%*% what happened to Tre?), and right afterward there was an episode of "Tim Gunn's Guide to Style!" But all through it, they were advertising in the breaks that it "premiered" tonight at 10. I ask you: HOW can a show be aired before it premieres?

It was good, though, if a little too similar to "What not to wear" - I like that they are pulling in people from the industry and I really liked the sequence where Tim walked the fashion victim selectee through a digital program that showed her a representation of her own body proportions, and then he sat down with her and drew various styles of clothes on a blank template of her body silhouette. I also *REALLY* appreciated that they talked with her about her undergarments. So many women really don't pay attention to the underpinnings, and it makes a *huge* difference to how clothes fit and hang and look.

Plus, it's Tim Gunn. So how can you not love it?

Time for lunch!

Adams: Well, Mr. Jefferson, are you a patriot or a lover?

Jefferson: Lover.


or this:

Rutledge: Who's fortunes are made
From the triangle trade?
Gentlemen, I give you a toast:
Hail Boston!
Hail Charleston!
Who stinketh the most?

Remember a couple weeks ago when I posted asking for a do-over?

I'm not alone:

If you're maybe noticing that you're older than you used to be, and are feeling sad / angry / confused / worried / frustrated that you haven't accomplished as much as you/other people in your present or past / annoyingly critical voices inside your head think you should have, and if you're maybe feeling something like "I'm not a real grownup like everyone else," and if you're maybe also feeling sad / angry / confused / worried / frustrated that your body isn't working the way it used to, and you're maybe thinking, "if that's true then how am I going to DO all those accomplishments that I / other people / voices in my head think I ought or want to do?", and maybe you're also wondering how are you going to dig out from under the accumulation of habit and procrastination and self-doubt to some sense of satisfaction in your life again, then post this same sentence in your journal.

I just got tagged by [livejournal.com profile] ljmatthews (well, sorta; she tagged her whole flist), so.

Three things you might not know about me

1. I was once added to the Barry Manilow fan club, because my grandmother tried to buy tickets for me (and failed) and I wrote to his publicist to point out that it was stupid for a Jewish performer to have tickets go on sale on Yom Kippur. They gave me a complimentary membership. I still very occasionally get mail from the Manilow fan club.

2. I hate mayonnaise.

3. I didn't have a driver's license until after I was divorced.


Who to tag? Um... I don't know. If you haven't been tagged by anyone else, and you feel like it, do it. Otherwise, consider this a virtual cloven fruit (I put them down instead of passing them on).
