Summer Burn 2011  
Sign-ups for Summer Burn 2011 have opened!!

Basically: You sign up for Summer Burn and create two CDs of music you enjoy listening to in the summer. You get sent two addresses of two other people who have signed up and send them your CDs. In return, they send you their CDs. It is awesome :D One of the CDs I got last year was really good, and the other was pretty cool too :D It's a great way to get introduced to music you might not have heard otherwise, and people all around the world do it :)

Sign up. You know you want to...

Dark Fest... issues >:(  
So, you guys know how I was super-stoked for [ profile] dark_fest, kept spamming posting about it, and wanted to write for pretty much every prompt ever?

Yeah... I haven't written a single word. *shamefaced*

To be honest, uni has been killing me right now, I've been pretty much behind all term and haven't really had any free time, and whenever I have had free time I've felt guilty about not working, so I've not been able to set aside any writing time :( Throw in some depression and yeah. No fic.

Anyway, I only have two weeks of term left and then I break up for 6 weeks :D The last two weeks I'm spending lambing, but the rest of that time is free! I do have work to do - catching up on the work I missed, going over the ISF oral questions and revising this term and last terms stuff - so my plan is, do 3 hours of work every morning, and then spend the afternoon doing whatever I like, ie. write fic and play Assassins Creed :D That way I'll be productive but still feel like I'm having a holiday :D
I feel: stressed

Dark Fest prompts (finally) claimed!  
Moar [info]dark_fest stuff...
  • Any fandom, any male pairing, he loves to see the big tough guy afraid.
  • Dollhouse/Firefly, River/Simon, River's just a doll so it's okay.
Okay. I think I'm going to do these two. Even though the second one will kill me timeline wise. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, ANONYMOUS PROMPTER :P lol. Also, [info]smthwallflower, up for being my writing buddy/beta again?? :D <3

Also, and this has nothing to do with anything, I'm listening to the radio atm and one of them said that they overheard this girl on a train saying she was going to break up with a guy because his neck was too long. Apparently he wore a scarf on the first date so she didn't know. I am literally crying with laughter right now.

I feel: amused

Why Men Are Dicks, And People Who Think There's No Longer A Need For The Feminist Movement Are Wrong  
Last night I went out with some friends. It was a good night.

Unfortunately, they live in halls in Kentish Town, and I live near Caledonian Road, so we had to get different night buses home. I don't mind getting the night bus by myself - I mean, it's not my favorite thing in the world, but plenty of people on it at that time and I was sitting near the driver so I felt quite safe. Plus they have CCTV on the buses in London.

Cut for possible rape triggers )

Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys  

Okay so the other day I downloaded the new MCR album. I only got around to proporly listening to it today, though.

It is epic. I've had it on repeat all day.

It's a concept album (and right away, that's pretty much guaranteed to make me obsessed... lol), set in a dystopian 2019 (and that's a second way to make me obsessed, dystopian futures make the best stories <3 Why do you think I love Dollhouse so much?). It's about the Killjoys (played by MCR) who're a gang rebelling against Better Living Industries (or BL/ind) who control the world (I think? It's set around "Battery City", which BL/ind definitely control, and the zones outside the city suffer from severe acid rain and radiation and I don't think there's anyone left further out).


This is my favorite song:

They've also made a BL/ind website, and on youtube there is a series of broadcasts that are shown on the TV in Battery City. Oh, and this music video continues the story from the one above. :)

So anyway, I'm completely geeking-out over the Killjoys xD I'm currently making a batch of icons (see the icon for this post), which is always proof I've fallen into obsessive-love with something!!

Speaking of icons, did LJ randomly give everyone more icon space? Or did someone gift me icon space and I just didn't notice? (I'm very sorry if that's the case!!) It's just I went to upload some Killjoy icons, and I KNOW I'd maxed-out my icon space before but now I've got, like, five gaps. I am confused.

Oooo, Na Na Na's just come back on on iTunes <3
I feel: excited

Liar Liar  

So the extemely awesome Captain Ska have created a song about the Coalition: 


How true. Especially loved the Thatcher/Cameron part - no matter what he says, the Nasty Party haven't changed and they never will. So retweet, post on facebook, join the fb group, and download the song. All proceeds go to charity, and if you're in the UK - let's see if we can make it the Christmas number one.

It's not going to stop the cuts over night, but maybe it'll give Cameron and his little lap dog something to think about - people are getting angry, and come the next election? They're going to pay.

I have an iPhone 4!! :D

What happened to my 3GS? I got a bit drunk and accidently left it in the bar at uni and it got stolen and the insurance wouldn't pay for it because I'd left it unattended so I've just had to shell out a ridiculous sum of money for a phone for the second time inside a year
Doesn't matter - bright side - iPhone 4!! 

Also, no more heavy drinking around the iPhone. Learnt that lesson the hard way...

But still, 4!! :D

US judge says lesbians can be "cured" by male sodiers.

Apparently, gay men shouldn't be allowed in the US military because "the overwhelmingly straight warriors who answer their county’s call [should] be spared the indignity of showering with other men who achieve lascivious enjoyment from the sight of those lithe naked bodies, and who may be tempted to seek more than the view". So to sum up - gay men are all oppertunistic rapists.

However, due to the fact that men are apparently naturally much more promiscuous than women (lolwhat? My personal experience begs to differ...) and historically "it fell to men to swing through the trees and scour the caves in search of as many women as possible to subdue and impregnate" - so basically, men naturally want to rape women - "straight male GIs [should have] a fair shot at converting lesbians and bringing them into the mainstream.”

So he thinks male GIs should correctively rape lesbians.

Jesus fucking Christ.

"Lets kill the gays! :D" - The UN  

Reposted from [ profile] teleen_fiction:

Gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people were once again subject to the whims of homophobia and religious and cultural extremism this week, thanks to a United Nations vote that removed “sexual orientation” from a resolution that protects people from arbitrary executions. In other words, the UN General Assembly this week voted to allow LGBT people to be executed without cause.

"UN General Assembly Votes To Execute Gays Without Cause". It's okay for a government to arbitrarily execute people on the basis of sexual orientation, which actually means ANYONE, period, because since these are executions without cause anyway, someone wouldn't have to be PROVEN GLBTQP in order to be executed.  The level of illogical stupidity here is so mind-boggling that I can't begin to fully express it, except to say - fuck the UN. 

That, and the UN should be disbanded immediately if this is their idea of preserving human rights. 

Fuck the UN.  I'm actually having to resist the urge to just keep typing that over and over.  One last time.
