Hot - Shame

Friends and Alcoholics only

To those who have stumbled upon this journal, I bid thee welcome and beg forgiveness. In the past this journal was (mainly) open to all. Certain lifestyle changes have made this impossible to continue, and so I have been obliged to f-lock everything. If you would like to be added to this, my personal journal, please comment and I will be happy to add you. If you are looking for fic, may I recommend my_young_friend ?

And yes, I do speak in this manner fairly often. Particularly when I've been reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. This should provide some insight into the insanity you will find contained within.

ETA: I really do not want anything public posted to Facebook or Twitter. Precious little here is public, anyway, so please leave the few parts that are un-posted. Much as I like DW, I don't want to have to move just yet.

Every Part Of You Belongs To You

This story punched me in the head and screamed at me to do something, rather than just stand by and watch. I haven't been moved by any story this much. It's terrifying, beautifully written and wholly realistic. I've already bought the T-shirt, that's how much I want to support and advertise this.

Summary: In the not-so-distant future of Virginia, the Personhood Act has outlawed abortion and chemical birth control. That doesn’t mean they don’t exist, though.

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Dear Australia

We're very, very sorry for all the convict joke. We're also very sorry that we sent over so many people that tried (and sometimes succeeded) in eradicating your indigenous people. We drink your Fosters in penitence.

Now will you please stop sending shit TV over and give us some of the good stuff?
