My deadline is tomorrow. I'm totally freakin' out man.

I was having such a hard time getting this done, and time just seemed to get away from me. Now my deadline is coming up and I'm panicking a little bit, though I'm hopeful that I'm going to make it.

If you see me on here whining and crying in six hours, then it will be time to worry. Wish me luck.

I like to put on AMV Hell in the corner of my screen while writing. I just click VLC player to Always On Top and it works great. I'll be writing away to a montage of usually upbeat music, and what I catch of the action will give me a boost of creativity. I love the AMV Hell movies so much!

Join us on May 25-26th for a 24-hour live broadcast full of multi-fandom fun and entertainment as we try to raise money for HIV/AIDS research.

Currently, we’re looking for volunteers to help out. Specifically, we're in need of willing hosts, people who wouldn't mind volunteering an hour of their time to chat about their favourite fandom and/or ship or do an activity like a watch-along or drinking game or what have you. That being said, if you're not comfortable hosting, you could participate by doing something as small as helping promote the event to offering fic or art for Quest prizes or the auction (which opens on the 18th of May). And, of course, there’s donating to the cause. However you can help, we’re happy to accept it. To volunteer, visit our volunteer sign-up post.

To find out more, visit [livejournal.com profile] thebig24, or find us on Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr.

This is actually pretty infuriating.

tl;dr Basically BP used a chemical dispersant Corexit to cover up how bad the spill was (wouldn't want a bad PR moment) and the chemical turns out to be 50x worse for the environment than all that crude oil. So to hide their mistake they made a criminal cover up that's resulting in sick humans, mutating and dying wildlife, and there's a big chance everyone is going to get cancer in the future.

Thanks BP. I'm sure all those people that are going to be dying of deadly cancer in the next few years will appreciate all the billions of dollars you have to pay.

Honestly, I wouldn't live anywhere on the coast.

Someone out there is selling a paperback copy of my book for $441.17 on Amazon.

I imagine that at some point my book will become a collector's item (fingers crossed), so I could see an original edition going for a lot of money. But that's way far in the future.

This right here... This is pure shits and giggles. Seriously, I am boggling.

Here, have a chunk of something  that might possibly be cut out of "Allies & Enemies," by Harper Kingsley. It's a scene that doesn't seem to fit, but that's too completely awesome not to share. Maybe it'll be fleshed out into a short story sometime. I mean, there's gotta be other prisoners out there that would have stories of their own to share.

So, it's pretty obvious that I have a problem with the LJ compost screen thing. When posting from my computer I use Semagic and from my Kindle I email my posts in.

Yet somehow, some of my emailed posts have gone astray and not reached their destinations. How crap is that? My email says delivered, but no posts have appeared and I don't know when it will happen. Sucks.

Anyways, back to work for me.

ETA: Yes, some posts were fic updates. I have to wait for them to appear before continuing on.

The Internet has exploded with the whole "Amazon has bought Goodreads" thing, and I guess that's pretty concerning. At least until there's some straight answers about what's going to happen in the future. (I'm not going to get all emo about it until I know what's what.)

Honestly, though, if Amazon uses some Goodreads links to fix the awfulness of Shelfari, I would really appreciate it. Shelfari looks kind of pretty, but it's so difficult to use :(

This. What the hell republicans?

If you want to say you've not  declared war on women, you better make it a felony for dudes to show their boobs. Otherwise you're a complete jackhole. Give those men some pasties... I find their hairy nipples offensive >_<

Republican NC Lawmaker: Women Should 'Duct Tape' Nipples to Stay Out of Jail

Click here to view this media

North Carolina has a new bill that will make it a felony for a woman to expose her nipple or areola.

But not to worry! If you're concerned that your summer camisole might slip and propel you into prison, Republican state Rep. Tim Moore says wimmenz can protect themselves from a life of crime by slapping a little duct tape on the business end of their womanly feed bags.

The state House Judiciary Committee C approved House Bill 34, which makes it a Class H felony to purposefully expose "private parts" for the "purpose of arousing or gratifying sexual desire."

The bill expands the state's definition of "private parts" to include a woman's "nipple, or any portion of the areola."Democratic state Rep. Annie Mobley said she worried that women wearing "questionable fashions” could be prosecuted under the new rules.

But Committee Chairwoman Rep. Sarah Steven (R) suggested that women could use pasties or nipple coverings just to be safe.

“They’d be good to go” with nipple coverings, Stevens said.

"You know what they say, duct tape fixes everything," Republican state Rep. Tim Moore agreed.

Republican state Rep. Rayne Brown told lawmakers that she was co-sponsoring the bill because activists had held a topless women's rights rally in Asheville last summer, where as many as a dozen women bared their breasts (NSFW video here).

Although Brown's district is 100 miles from Asheville, she felt it was important to act before women tried to assert their rights again by going topless at another rally.

“You’ve got local governments passing ordinances to protect themselves from just this thing,” she explained. “These folks don’t need to be doing that, but they do it because they’re not sure about the law."

Under the proposed law, women could spend up to six months in jail for a first offense. "Incidental" nipple exposure by breastfeeding mothers would be exempt from the law.

I have bit my tongue all these months, not saying a single word other than a few comments on other peoples' posts, but I just can't handle it anymore.

If you've gotten into fanfiction so that you can pillage peoples' love of their various fandoms, then you are a complete and utter tool and I want nothing to do with you. Seriously, I am completely disgusted by people saying "I'm going to start writing fanfiction so I can get a big following and make a billion dollars." You know what, Fuck you.

Fanfiction and fanart and everything to do with fandom is about love. It's about unselfishly offering a bit of yourself up to other people so everyone can see what it is about your particular fandom that you enjoy so much. It's not about making money.

IT'S NOT ABOUT MAKING MONEY!There might be a little harsh language )

I saw this post and was absolutely horrified.

Sure, AO3 has been having some Beta issues lately, but that's all they are, BETA issues. So to turn around and completely rag on the coders until THIS happens is just awful. I wish I could offer apologies to Lim from all of fandom, but I know there are still some people out there bitching.

Once I figured out I could still read stories and leave kudos and comments, I was like "This will all get fixed up and the site will be even better," then I left it like that. But I guess some people decided to take things a step further and actually get someone to quit. It's so sad.

Cats are the perfect pets. They're warm and cuddly when that's what you want, and they're cold and distant when you don't want anything to do with them.

Dogs are more in your face about their wants and needs. Like my dog has been going crazy all night about wanting to go outside, but he just wants to run around like an idiot and roll around in stuff.

I've had the best luck with cats gotten as tiny kittens. The worst cat I ever had was one I got from aRead more... )

I've been half out of fandom for awhile now. I still read the stories, but I've not really been participating in communities or anything. I've still got WIP stories people ask about, but that make me shocked when I look at them and see how long it's been since I updated.

Anyway, I have a bit of time on my hands so I think I'll be paddling around in the fandom pool for a while.

me?

Why have I been gone for so long? Because LiveJournal shows up all weird on my antivirus and I don't want to have to shut it of :(

Okay, so what's up? Well, joined Shelfari and Goodreads, have gone crazy on MobileReads Forum, and have basically been reading and writing a lot. And that's all.

Yeah, lame, I know.

I've been procrastinating all day. I was supposed to be writing, but I wrote like 1000 words, then started messing around with Twitter and checking my Amazon reports to see how many copies I've sold.

Now, after an entire day wasted, I feel like taking a nap.

I am a vocal proponent of digital video recording systems like ReplayTV and TiVO. But that wonderful technology that I wet dream about at night has completely ruined my life.

I am no longer able to sit through thirty seconds of commercial air without wincing and attempting to fast-forward past the pseudo-Viagra, diarrhea medication, lawn care, and annoying cellphone commercials, shaking and shuddering like a junkie mid-fix. I cannot sit and settle myself for even just a couple of minutes without wanting to QuickSkip to the next scene so I don't have to watch the boring parts, or if something interesting ever happens, I am fast to hit the Instant Replay or the rewind button just so I can watch and thrill in it yet again.

The other day I found myself wanting to fast forward through my everyday life. My thumb was twitching uncontrollably as I watched idiot people pass by the booth I was standing in, and more than anything, I wanted to be on to the next scene, dancing in jubilation at the opportunity to experience the next thrill. And instead I had to actually live my life and I was sadly disappointed.

Like Adam Sandler's character in Click, I find myself wanting to zip past the boring segments and get to the good stuff. But unlike him, the boring parts are really all I have, so if I just keep on fast forwarding, there won't be anything left. Because I live an entirely ordinary life and the only real thrill I get is vicarious, carefully siphoned through the filters of the lives of fictional people the normal world could never create. Because life is a bore from beginning to end, and the writing is always crappy.

I was in the kitchen digging through the cupboard when Bryson came up behind me.

"Wanna cracker," he said, pointing.

"You're a cracker," I said. "An Asian cracker."

"I Asian cracker." He made munching noises, pretending someone was biting the top of his head.

I know, it's dumb, but I had to laugh. What a dorkboy.
