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 feel: angry

Gay rights  

Thanks to [ profile] teleen_fiction, who I snagged this from.

I'm in tears after watching this. I just... I can't understand how anyone could hate someone so much just for who they love.

I'm so lucky, much luckier than I realise. My friends support me, my family support me. I live in a country where I have equal rights, regardless of sexual orientation. Where I can be free in expressing who I love.

The most I've ever had to deal with was a few nasty words from a boy at school when I said I wouldn't have sex with him, and the fact that one of my friends can't tell her parents I'm queer or else they would try to stop her being friends with me. Both those things are unacceptable, but... Compared to the terrible things these people have suffered in that video... It's nothing.

I always kind of laughed at homophobes - I mean, how stupid do you have to be to judge someone on what gender the person they fall in love with is? Let's face it - gender isn't that big a deal. One different chromosome, a few different hormones, and a slight plumbing difference down below. It's not much. It doesn't change the person.

But homophobes aren't stupid. They're inhuman. We're supposed to be a civilised species - murdering someone on the bases of their sexuality - on the bases of something they can't change - isn't civilised.

If anyone can watch that video and still feel that being gay is "wrong", just defriend me. Now. I don't want to have anything to do with you.

I feel: sad

Youtube fail  

Just went on youtube, and you know where on the homepage it has videos that are recommended for you?

One of the videos recommended for me is about how to put a condom on xD

Clearly youtube doesn't know me that well...

...I don't know what I've watched to make it think I'd want to see that video though D: lol

I feel: amused

HIMYM Season 1, The Guild and Other Stuff  

Saw the last episode of Season 1 today...

You've probably already seen this episode, but LJ-cut for SPOILERS just in case... )

Season 2 starts tomorrow, woooo :) I was worried E4 would do something stupid like only show Season 1, but no :)

New episode of the Guild today...

SPOILERS for S03E06 )

Also, I'm getting really impatient with the fanfic100 thing (I've actually started checking the claim post, just in case it was replied to and I didn't get the email... I have too much time on my hands xD ). They said it could take up to a month to process the claim and it's only been two weeks :( I keep having loads of ideas for prompts, I've got a whole word document full of them so I don't forget them, and I've got about 8 started... I just want to wait until my claim's confirmed before I post them. Okay, I know I didn't wait with the Hours, Days, Weeks, Months, Years one but I really liked that fic.

Finally, this WINS:
