not looking for God, only for myself

and that is far more complicated

Friends Only

Yo! Welcome to my Livejournal. Here's some things you might want to know about me before you add my journal to your f-list.

1. I'm a very liberal Democrat who is anti-war, pro-choice, a feminist, and a strong supporter gay rights. I used to be a Catholic, but I no longer identify myself as a follower of organized religion. Nowadays, I'm more spiritual than religious. If you have issues with my beliefs, it's very likely that we're not going to get along. Although I try to avoid posting about politics and religion in my blog, I would like to follow other blogs that won't upset me on a regular basis, and I'm sure you probably feel the same way.

2. I'm an avid watcher of anime and/or animated things, especially Disney and Pixar, and I'm not sorry about it. Sometimes I watch live-action things, but most of the time I'm a child at heart.

3. If you want to friend me to follow my public entries, feel free to do so, but please don't take offense if I don't friend you back. Seriously, unless I say so otherwise, it's nothing personal. My journal has slowly become more private as time went on, and there's certain things going on in my life that I'd rather not share flippantly, so I'm a little cautious as to who I friend back. Also, I'm not really comfortable having a huge f-list at the moment.

quote, well this is me, unquote.
I decided to stop plugging pwnworks up with my favorite quotes from, well, anywhere, and decided to post them all in a single post instead.

If you guys have any quotes you like, for whatever reasons, feel free to hit this up!

beating like a drum and it's coming your way
So, does anyone follow any writing communities on this site, or know where to find writing exercises and memes?

Life's a little boring, otherwise. I do need to use this journal more often, and I've become a bit unsociable, so um. Time to change that! Want to do a silly fandom meme? :D

Name a fandom you know I know and I'll tell you

1. The first character I first fell in love with
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
3. The character everyone else loves that I don’t
4. The character I love that everyone else hates
5. The character I used to love but don’t any longer
6. The character I would totally smooch
7. The character I’d want to be like
8. The character I’d slap
9. A pairing that I love
10. A pairing that I despise

If you don't know my fandoms, feel free to take a look here!

love songs for the hell of it.
I'm so depressed/angry about the ending of Mass Effect 3 that I decided to...put together a playlist of all of the romance songs (all of which are either sweet or sad) I enjoy. Makes total sense, right?

These songs in particular have been played or at least in the back of my mind while I've been playing with these new characters and thinking about their relationships with each other, or their relationships with Sev's characters.

Now, obviously I'm not putting up download links, mainly because I'm not going to chance it after all of the SOPA bullshit. If you can't view it due to being in a different region, though, I'll see what I can do.

BAD Internet Laws Heading Your Way
I am so writing about this in my blog

Spread the word, even you're not a US citizen, it is important for everyone!! It easy to do and it can change everything. More info by clicking on the banner.

Website Blocking

The government can order service providers to block websites for infringing links posted by any users.

Risk of Jail for Ordinary Users

It becomes a felony with a potential 5 year sentence to stream a copyrighted work that would cost more than $2,500 to license, even if you are a totally noncommercial user, e.g. singing a pop song on Facebook.

Chaos for the Internet

Thousands of sites that are legal under the DMCA would face new legal threats. People trying to keep the internet more secure wouldn't be able to rely on the integrity of the DNS system.

Get on the phone and call your representative. Express your disapproval. Tell him or her exactly how you feel, and that you don't support this. Tell your friends to call their representatives, their Congressperson, and complain. Mention that you are a registered voter that takes your civic responsibility seriously and that you will use that vote to express your feelings about this.


“We support the bill’s stated goals — providing additional enforcement tools to combat foreign ‘rogue’ websites that are dedicated to copyright infringement or counterfeiting,” the Internet companies wrote in Tuesday’s letter. “Unfortunately, the bills as drafted would expose law-abiding U.S. Internet and technology companies to new uncertain liabilities, private rights of action and technology mandates that would require monitoring of websites.”  The chamber-led coalition in support of the bill includes Walmart, Eli Lilly & Co. and Netflix.

Google and other opponents of the legislation argue that restricting the Internet in the U.S. sets a bad international precedent and that the language defines infringing too broadly.

Writer's Block: The happiest movies on earth
you came back
What is your favorite Disney movie?

Sometimes it's a tie between The Lion King and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. The Lion King is my comfort movie, the one that still stands as one of the first movies I've watched in theaters, and I have the entirety of that movie memorized from line to line. But The Hunchback of Notre Dame made me sit up and really take notice of its powerful themes and cast of characters when I was seven years old, all of which I've craved and tried to look for in other narratives. That and its sweeping scores and choruses made me listen to its soundtrack over and over again until I wore out the CD.

Sometimes I just want to say, "Fuck it," and go with The Fox and the Hound. That movie made me sad when I was younger, but now I relate too much to it. You never quite get over the loss of a friend, and while the movie had a bittersweet end, I like to think that they still saw each other as friends in spite of what happened between them.

Sometimes it's all of these movies. Plus Beauty and the Beast because you can feel all of the love that was put into it, and Beast/Belle, UGH. ; ;


Also can we talk about Don Bluth movies, too? Those movies rocked.

I need better icons. In the meantime, a sexy meme!
a sexy revolution
So what does an awesome lady do in the wee hours of the morning after writing smut? Why, she posts an icon meme because she's bored! She takes a particular one hiding in the journal of an RPG character from way back, borrows the code and puts some of the icons in it. Also, said-lady may or may not continue to refer to herself in the third person until the end of this entry.

Icon Meme. WARNING, IT'S KINDA SEXY?Collapse )

they're going to have to get through you first.
So, today's my birthday. I'm 24. W-When did that happen. D:
