This gets really amazingly hilarious around 1:20.

To think, I didn't watch AI this year, and I never liked Adam Lambert until they started letting him talk.

They should've done that more. We missed out.

Also.. I am now on Dreamwidth. Thanks to Erin for the code.

I don't plan on moving very much exclusively or anything, but I wanted one because it was shiny and I like new toys.

I'm thinking of doing a mirrored version of [profile] stanfordwank as well, but I don't know.

Anyway, add me.
I didn't know how much was involved in making my tweets from twitter appear on my LJ.

It's a lot, and I'm too frustrated to deal with it.

Fail.
Amazon, will you please remove your ultimate fail from my universe?

It's one thing to be an asshole about gay marriage.. I mean. I get it. Change is scary. It's ridiculous that it's scary, but if you feel that your religion is threatened, I get being an asshole. You're still being an asshole, and I will still try to convince you why you shouldn't be, and will still fight against your oppression because it's wrong... But I will be inclined to believe that there is a possibility that you are possibly just misguided or ill informed and after time you will understand the error of your ways instead of automatically thinking that you're a horrible, hateful person.

But when you're a business who decides that all books mentioning homosexuality from non-fiction to children's books like "Heather Has Two Mommies" can't be raked because of their adult nature while you keep the rank on books (with pictures) about Playboy Playmates, that's fucking ridiculous.

The most ridiculous part, of course, being that the top search result for "homosexuality" is "A Parent's Guide to Preventing Homosexuality." WTF? Aside from the fact that that book even exists (stay tuned for the sequels: How To Get Bloodstains Out Of Your Best KKK Whites and How To Beat the Gay Out of Your Children Without Leaving Too Many Questionable Marks), how is it okay to have the number one book be anti-gay?

Help google-bomb the motherfuckers by creating a link to http://www.smartbitchestrashybooks.com/amazonrank with the link-tag "Amazon Rank". Example: Amazon Rank.

Also, there is a petition here. And there's always the ability to boycott.

I don't buy very many books online (I've mostly bought DVDs from Amazon, but I'm sure I'll find something better, even if it's not as inexpensive) but I guess I'm going to have to start buying things elsewhere. Which is lame because Amazon is convenient, but the best way to condone this sort of behavior is to do nothing, and I can't really in good conscious support this sort of thing because aside from just being completely oppressive and horrible, even going to the website makes me ill. I feel like just giving them more hits is equivalent to kicking people I love, know, and care about in the face.

I'm even sad for fandom characters. A book bought at Amazon basically denounces the validity of the relationships our entire subculture is based on.

I didn't think I would get this upset about this, but I am and I just... God. Really, universe? Are you fucking serious?

Meet my new pretend internet boyfriend.

My heart. It grows wings. But only tiny ones that can't possibly carry their weight so it ends up falling into my stomach and getting eaten alive by acid while I pine.

PINE, I tell you.

Kind of half-heartedly, though.

Which makes sense.

You know.

Because of the acid.

XOXOXOXO

Found this on fmylife. It's funny, and also probably something that I wouldn't be shocked to hear come out of some of the kids I know.

I'm not sure David Boreanez and Emily Deschanel don't know they're not Booth and Brennan.

It's kind of cute.
I puked like 30 times last night.

I'm better now.

But that was lame. JSKY.
My daddy brought my car and my furniture and I didn't work today. Monica and I went to Wal Mart and I bought the stuff I "needed" (reads: functional things that I wanted), like a blackout curtain and a shower head that wasn't lame.

And I got a matress cover because my mattress smells like the garage still. And so does my comforter and I'm going to have to throw away some pillows, but they're on sale at Wal-Mart for 2.50 and I only need... 8? So that's 20 dollars, I think? My parents said they'd buy me a chair for Christmas and I also need a desk (Target or second hand store, since everything at Wal Mart isn't worth the money) and maybe I will get a rug.

Monica put up my curtain rod (she can use tools, she used to work in the scene shop) and I did my shower head all by myself. =D I still need another panel for my curtain because I underestimated how small 52 inches is and how large my windows (with the street light 3 feet away are).. But I am pleased that I have some things here.

More than I thought I would be. Yay!
Hey.. Does anyone with House knowledge who writes have time to beta my SS Huddy fic? I wrote it really quickly so my thought is that it's pretty horrible, and I'm going to try to whip it into something that doesn't suck and turn it back in.

I also got kind of a weird prompt which I would've never written otherwise, but I tried and again.. Think it's kind of lame and wrote the last half of it while sleeping. LIke. I actually don't remember.

Anyway.

TY in advance.

I think I have OD'd on House.

Blah.

Also, SPOILER CUT FOR 5.11 )

Also I'm tired of hearing about House and Cuddy and whether they are or are not in an abusive relationship and how all respect will be lost for sad, pathetic Cuddy if she ever speaks to him again/doesn't slap him across the face if he makes a sexual comment about her again because of the boob grab. Because sometimes you can't stop caring about someone just because they did something petty. And also because maybe I'm naive.. But I generally have no problem believing what the writers tell me to. I mean. They create the world, they dictate what happens in it.

Which pretty much makes me a visible minority in the House fandom (they make us wear letters on our shirts).

Ugh. I'm getting fed up with it all.

I hope whatever happens in the show, it works out, and even if it's not totally believable, that it's either fun or devastating to watch.

When I was twelve, I went through this phase where I was wearing a lot of tie dye and calling people fascists.

I grew up in Eastern KY in the middle of the Bible belt before Will and Grace. Before abortion was a viable option. Before bi-racial children filled up two or three seats in each classroom.

I was always arguing for "the other side" in class debates.

"Abortion should be illegal because it's murder. God values every life."
"But that's based on religion, and this country was built on a foundation of separation of church and state."

"Gay people shouldn't be able to get married, because it says that a man who lay with another man is an abomination."
"According to the Bible, you're supposed to sleep with the pigs when you have your period. Again, with the separation of church and state."

"It's horrible, horrible, horrible that they are taking prayer out of the schools! That's discrimination!"
"Yes. But what would you do if every morning when you went to school, you were expected to boy your head while someone prayed to some Hindu god? It's not like it is here everywhere. A moment of silence is better."

I've always mourned the fact that I wasn't born in an earlier generation. I wanted to be alive in the sixties and protesting war and fighting for equal rights for all races and genders. I wanted to burn my bra and chain myself to the steps of a college building that wouldn't accept Black students and be part of a community that was held together by idealism instead of the convenience of having the same pictures on their money.

I've always had opinions.

I never forgot about them. I was just too busy moping about my general existence to do anything about it.

I've been stuck in this tar pit of disdain and bitterness and I've been so angry and jaded.

I don't want to do that anymore. I don't want to be angry that my daddy told me I could be whatever I wanted to be, only to grow up in an economy where making 7.50 an hour with a college education is the best I can do.

I want to change the world. I want to fight for gay rights because I want to cry every time I hear about two people who love each other unable to make medical decisions or adopt a baby. And I want to reinforce the fact that human worth cannot be measured because we are all created equally. We are all perfect and imperfect but in different ways. We all do things that others call wrong and don't agree with and we either justify them to ourselves or believe that we are correct and a difference of opinion is not a valid reason to take freedom away from someone who just wants to live and be happy.

I'm going to do my best to get involved.

Ashe
LOL> I have 666.93 in my bank account. =D
Did anyone else notice how much time Taub devoted to checking out Cuddy?

It is bringing me LOLs. I guess baldness doesn't cancel out my attraction to short men, because I want to keep Taub in my pocket and take him out when I want to be snarky or have someone stare at my ass.

<3333

I also kind of need an animated icon devoted to him watching her walk out of the room. <3333
