My public places on the web:

Lea's Attic - My website

Days of Dreams - My vidding journal

To keep up with the Hamlet picture streak I've had lately, here's those images I was after earlier. They are gigantically huge, even after being automatically resized by my Photobucket, so under a cut they go!

Is it 16 August yet?! )

ETA: I am stupid. These are not the Rex images. Doesn't matter, as they are pretty anyway, possibly even better.

I am not rising to their bait, though. Especially if they don't even have the decency to sign their name to comments. And yes, this is a public entry, because if anyone feels like wanking, they are welcome to do it here, and not air dirty laundry in a community. Pah!

They've done it, they have! I have no idea how, but Germany is in the finals for Euro 2008!!!

Boris for mayor? Not impressed, what were you thinking, Londoners?!

Definitely doing this today (picture nicked from [livejournal.com profile] shirasade, as their website seems to be down. Maybe it's between 8 and 9 pm where their server is? *g*):

Hope you all have a gorgeous weekend, my pretties. :)

Ok, off now for 24 hours, see you on the other side. ;) Maybe it's not the most effective thing to do, but it's better than nothing, right? Oh, and yes, I am not renewing my paid account in April, either.

ETA: Oh yes, commenting disabled on all posts for duration of strike, too.

I will do my very best and remember not to come to LJ on Friday at all.

LiveJournal Content Strike, Friday, March 21, midnight to midnight GMT.
No posts. No comments. No content.

All info about the whys and hows at [livejournal.com profile] beckyzoole's LJ.

Spread the word!
WARNING: This post is SO not PC...

I don't know if you guys saw Sarah Silverman's "I'm f***ing Matt Damon" yet. It was on Jimmy Kimmel's show a while ago (he's her boyfriend). I had that bloody song stuck in my head for ages, btw. If you haven't seen it, here it is:

Now, Jimmy retaliated...by f***ing Ben Affleck. It's pretty damn funny, and boy, quite a few celebs. Good to see Hollywood hasn't given up on humor yet:

This is quite wrong on so many levels, but man, it's funny!
Want to do something about all the grievances that have plagued us lately, regarding LJ? Then sign this excellently worded open letter that is going out to LJ/6A and the press.
To see, well, not the other side, but have the legal aspects behind it explained to us, I guess we can agree, is a good thing. [livejournal.com profile] synecdochin tries this here, and it gives me a lot to think about, I have to say. I'll read it again and share more thoughts tomorrow, but I think I can already say: Despite everything, LJ seems to have trouble understanding, and sensibly implementing, the Miller test for obscenity. I haven't quite understood it either, yet, so for tonight I'll give it all a rest. ;)

From here, a reply from LJ Abuse to someone who inquired, if I understand it correctly:

The comment you are referring to is correct; the content does not meet the legal definition of child pornography. As other, more recent entries in the community explain, however, non-photographic content involving minors in sexual situations which does not contain serious artistic or literary merit is likely in violation of Federal obscenity laws, and is content LiveJournal has chosen not to host.


The standard for artistic merit is not whether a work simply has technical merit; it is whether there is serious artistic value that offsets the sexual nature of the content. A group consisting of members of LiveJournal's Abuse Prevention Team, LiveJournal employees, and Six Apart staff reviewed the content that was reported to us. This group decides whether material potentially in violation of this policy warrants consideration for serious artistic value. In this case, they clearly did not see serious artistic value in content that simply displayed graphic sexual acts involving minors.
(bolding mine)

I am sorry, but what the frack is that supposed to mean?! Who are these people to be allowed to judge what has artistic merit and what doesn't? (ETA: And how can "artistic merit" offset sexual context? If photographs of little naked girls are done "really well and with style" are these okay then, too? Sorry for being a bit polemic here...) And especially here, when the images in question clearly were created by someone who engages in fandom art. And as [livejournal.com profile] erestor is pointing out in a recent post, there are plenty of communities out there where members make misogynistic, racist and homophobic comments, to real people. If LJ would crack down on these, often well-known, places as hard as on this here, I might not object so much. But they don't. I rarely speak out against things I see on the net, because it's just fruitless, but this is not just anywhere, LJ is like home, as I said before. And if my or other's freedom of expression is not guaranteed, how are we supposed to feel on here, eh?

I will take a day or two to consider the matter, and I might not have another choice but to leave LJ. This is just...I have no words.

The one and only true Muskrit (aka [livejournal.com profile] thejennabides) has something very good and, as always, fabulously worded to say on the whole Strikethrough/Journal Ban thing. I subscribe to that newsletter.

I was on that shaky connection when all this started, and so I missed a lot of the Strikethrough affair. But if they continue, I am afraid, very afraid, for all of us on here. I might make it onto fandom_wank when I use the c-word, but to hell with that: This is censorship.

I could go on and on about this here but my cold is back and my head hurts, so I'll stop. Maybe it'll all have been a bad dream when I wake up tomorrow...
- Thank you, my lovelies, who are sending me goodies.

- I will be home over the weekend, that means emails to be written then, and no need to send DW...;)

- I love you all. ♥

- That's all.

I just have to share this: I just watched a wee clip of John Barrowman from yesterday's signing at Borders in London (it's in the [livejournal.com profile] barrowmanfans community, but locked). In the clip he picks up a very small girl and sits her on the table so her daddy can take a picture of her and John. In the background, you can hear the *entire* Borders going "Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!" I swear, I could feel the estrogen wave all the way to here! *gg*

And no, it's not sockpuppets. *g* I found this rather cute:

Potter Puppet Pals in "The Mysterious Ticking Noise".
Sometimes f_w et al. isn't only for wank at all. In a post about a weird, nerdy Star Trek-ked up flat someone is selling I found links to these:

Wil Wheaton's blog and

Wil Wheaton recapping TNG episodes

Trip down Memory Lane, I used to ♥ Wesley Crusher a lot...
There are certainly many things one can say about Tony Blair that are rather unkind, but sometimes even politicians say something I can wholeheartedly agree with!

Tony Blair: Civil partnerships make me proud

Go Mr Blair! \o/
...but this is too funny not to share:

The true meaning of Darth

Darth Decent Behaviour indeed! :D
