My boyfriend gave me some awesome news last night....if this deal goes through. It would help me out financially pretty much for the summer, which would be awesome. A stress off my shoulders.

Speaking of shoulders, I've been wanting to get my hair cut really badly. Not short, just layers and such. But I've been afraid to do a lot with it due to all the problems I've had with it in the last couple years. I haven't dyed it, and I don't use more than shampoo and conditioner (with no detergents). I finally believe I've found the root cause it coming out, but fixing it seems like it's going to be a really big bitch.

The break for Once Upon a Time.......GRRRRR. I mean, it's bad enough the season's almost at an end, but a month break right before the last episodes? Blah. I wish there were other shows on that held my interest, but I'm down to just OUAT and TVD. I'll probably give the Originals spinoff a chance next year, but TVD itself is pissing me off a bit by now, TBH. I did watch the pilot for Cult, but haven't checked out any other episodes.

I'm ready for the summer movie season though - Ironman and Star Trek are out next month. Ironman looks like it's going to be a big improvement over the second movie, but my anticipation for Star Trek is higher - I expect amazing things from it. And I've been waiting longer for it.

Spent the afternoon going through my many, many posters. OMG, I'd forgotten I had so many.

I've always loved posters, but I have a lot I don't have displayed due to not having enough frames (and room). I have movie posters and television show posters. Hell, I have two banners right now too that I love to death, but with my furniture here there's no room to properly display them. They need almost a full wall. One's a Rorschach and the other is a Red Mist.

I tend to alternate posters every once and a while, but I still have too many. That's in spite of having to throw a few away due to water damage (GRRRR).

This summer maybe I'll take pics. It's crazy. Right now I have up on the walls - a 1968 pull out newspaper poster of Dark Shadows' Barnabas Collins, a Watchmen group poster, Kick-Ass RedMist promotional poster signed by CMP, another Red Mist w/ the Mist Mobile, Hit Girl, X-Men: First Class Erik/Magneto, OUAT Regina, OUAT Rumplestiltskin, a HP Half Blood Prince Snape, and a Men in Black 1st movie poster. Oh, and a smaller DuckTales poster from back around the time the show was on - hey, it was one of my first loves! It was an amazing find, in perfect shape).

I have like, 3 other Watchmen posters, a 2nd First Class poster, a Star Trek (2009 movie), and a Disney Afternoon poster (featuring DuckTales, Darkwing Duck, Rescue Rangers, and Talespin).....I want to hang them all, but there's no way. My rooms just aren't that big. :(

I saw this movie on Friday night...... I wanted to like it, I really did, but I ended up feeling rather negative about it overall.....

Here's where I attempt to describe my feelings.....SPOILERSCollapse )

I've been off and on sick for the past couple of weeks, and being out late last night didn't help much. Haven't been doing much outside working and sleeping.

Had to come on here and squee about OUAT after watching it tonight. I had to miss it last night and just now finished it. The beginning and middle of this season dragged in places, but these last few episodes have been so damn intense. I have tons of different feelings on it, but the bed is calling me right now and I have to answer. :)

It's been far, far too long since I've updated my journal. I disappeared from the online world, basically, and I apologize to everyone on my friends' list that I haven't been around to comment. I sort of disappeared from the world in general for a while, but I'm kinda skirting around the edge of it again. I've started taking an interest in things again.

What I've been up to......Collapse )

Damn, it's been forever since I've been on here. I'm going to be working on my journal for the next few days - updating and such. I consider all of it a work in progress right now, haha.

If anyone still reads this, bear with me. :)

My holiday was made today with the European Parliament burying ACTA (hopefully forever). 478 voted against it. 39 voted for it. And 165 didn't vote. That was an even more massive defeat than what I'd expected.

Now most attention should turn the TPP. They're saying now they're going to have "exceptions" to copyright laws in the TPP - but it still sounds very restrictive (even to fair use).

On a better note - sites are putting together the Declaration of Internet Freedom. I'll leave these links here....

EFF Declaration of Internet Freedom page


Access Now's Declaration of Internet Freedom page

Maybe my next entry will be about something else for a change :)

A new site was apparently created last week by public interest groups like the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Public Citizen and Public Knowledge. You can sign to send a letter to leaders and trade representatives from countries participating in the TPP.

Stop the Trap

The TPP is a seriously scary pact - not just because of what it will do to the internet, but for many other reasons as well. There's a reason it's being called "the corporate power tool of the 1%". What little that has leaked about it is absolutely scary. I can't imagine what the full pact looks like.

The next committee vote on ACTA is said to be on the 21st. This committee as far as I know will then write a recommendation on what to do with ACTA for the full vote in July. ACTA has been rejected by four other committees. This one - the International Trade Committee - is important.

Go here: This has website has a link to the list of the delegates that will be voting on ACTA - email them and let them know we want them to reject it!

There are sample letters for both European citizens and non European citizens. No matter where you live, you can make your voice heard. I typed up my own and sent it to them.

The usual lobbying suspects are apparently still pressing them to pass it - there's even a rumor now that they may try to have a secret ballot when they officially vote on it in July. See Techdirt. for more.....

........releases tomorrow....and I'm so damn excited. They've been my favorite band since I discovered them in 1998. Even though I didn't love beautifulgarbage or Bleed Like Me the way I did their self titled debut or Version 2.0 (my favorite cd of all time, honestly), I never stopped loving them. To hear new material after so long........
