I never use Scrapbook, but I think people who pay for a service should, you know, know when that service gets severely diminished. Via [livejournal.com profile] caiusmajor:

Alright, I am not drunk enough to deal with this, so I'm just going to put out this PSA:

Livejournal Scrapbook is going away. Your 10GB of Paid Member space is now 2GB. If you care, there is an explanation in Russian on the Russian news page. There's also a user-submitted translation.

+ You will no longer have access to your Scrapbook once this goes live.
+ Your images will redirect, but the URL will be different.
+ Unable to tell what will happen to any photos you have that put you over the 2GB limit.
+ Back up your Scrapbook just in case.
+ If you want your photos transferred over now instead of waiting, let them know here.

I vote we instate a new rule. 'If your profile reads like a twelve year old's Myspace page and your PMs are riddled with errors, you aren't allowed to try to lecture people about their occasional disregard for grammar in the name of literary effect.'

Ugh.

Someone is plagiarizing one of my stories over on ffnet. I'm so pissed off that I actually feel numb.

    Four months ago, CBS reporter Lara Logan was separated from her camera crew while covering the revolution in Cairo, Egypt, and brutally raped by a crowd of men.

    Two months ago, Logan bravely began speaking out in the media about her assault in the media to help end the stigma surrounding rape.

    Two weeks ago, Dan Rottenberg, editor-in-chief of Philadelphia-based online arts magazine Broad Street Review, posted a letter blaming Logan in part for the sexual violence committed against her -- equating her gang rape with "getting laid."

    (....)

    Rottenberg's editor's letter, published on June 6th, is titled 'Male Sexual Abuse and Female Naivete,' six words that from the get-go suggest if women were to act more responsibly, men wouldn't commit "sex abuse," i.e rape. The letter is accompanied by a photo of Logan (above) on the red carpet, wearing a v-line neck dress and smiling for the cameras. The caption under the photo reads, "What message was the TV journalist Lara Logan sending here?"

    Rottenberg goes on, "Earth to liberated women: when you display legs, thighs, or cleavage, some liberated men will see it as a sign you feel good about yourself and your sexuality. But most men will see it as a sign you want to get laid. Forewarned is forearmed."


I'm too pissed off to think of something to add to this other than what I said over on [livejournal.com profile] allira_dream's post. I've said it a thousand times before and I'll probably say it a thousand times again: It is never anyone's responsibility to keep themselves from being raped. It's other people's responsibility to not rape them. Added to that, rape is almost never about sexual attraction so much as it is about control, and to say otherwise is just grossly ignorant.

SIGN THE PETITION FOR THIS RAPE-APOLOGIST ASSHOLE TO GET FIRED.

Dear too many writers/television shows/movies/etc,

I have no problem accepting the fact that your undead/vampire/special snowflake of a character doesn't need to breathe. For whatever reason, they are already defying the laws of, oh, pretty much everything, so a little oxygen deprivation isn't going to make me blink. But saying that they can't breathe? That they're physically incapable of doing it?

Okay. No.

See, it'd be one thing if you did it where they're basically just existing as a mind inside of a body that no longer functions. But when your character runs around, fights, and freaking speaks? That's when I start rolling my eyes hard enough to sprain something. In case it's skipped your notice, the lungs are not in fact involuntary muscles. You can control how you use them, just like you control your arms and legs. So if the character can move enough to break into a secure building, beat up a bunch of security guards, and generally be the badass to beat all badasses, then they should be able to use their lungs. If, for whatever reason, their lungs are the one part of them that is paralyzed, then that character should probably brush up on their sign language. Because speaking? We do that by pushing air through our vocal chords.

I get it. It's all Very Dramatic to have your character going into an emo monologue about how horrible the world is and how useless they are because their friend is dying and they're incapable of giving them CPR. But the very fact that they're capable of doing said whining makes the entire thing bullshit. So stop it. Please.

Dear me,

I appreciate your attempts to multitask. It's great that you can do lots of different things while simultaneously plotting out entire scenes in your head. It's even better that you can usually manage to remember it all until you get to your computer, usually some number of hours later.

That being said, you are pretty much incapable of keeping whatever you're thinking about off your face. So, sitting up in the choir loft where everyone can see you during church? Probably not the best place to be plotting out a porn scene. Just saying. You really don't want to have to explain what you were thinking about to the little old ladies who are watching you make faces.

Eternally you,

coffeebuddha

 1. I'm ridiculously attracted to David Rossi/Joe Mantegna considering that he's old enough to be my grandfather. Seriously. I want to do horrible, dirty things to him that would make a sailor blush. And for some reason the fact that he's been with his wife since 1975 just makes him that much hotter to me. Not that I want to wreck his home or anything. Maybe someone willing to commit is just a turn on after my last boyfriend?

2. CBS needs to pull its head out of its ass and realize that all it's managing to do is piss off a huge portion of its fanbase. Yes, I like me some eye candy and have been known to watch portions of programs just to do some idle ogling. But you know what makes me stick around through the commercial break? If there's substance behind the pretty faces. And the ladies of CM have substance and class in spades.

3. I'm addicted to the CM kinkmeme. Not even joking. Every time I think I'm done, I see another prompt and off I go. Someone should probably take my computer away from me for a while so that I can sleep.

4. I'm way too much of an attention whore for completely anonymous memes. Not claiming stuff makes me feel all twitchy.

5. Even if someone answers the prompt I posted, there's a better than good chance that I'm going to end up writing it myself anyway.

6. I'm watching Alvin and the Chipmunks because MGG is in it and now I can't stop wondering whether or not there are any recordings of him singing. Does anyone know? And if there are, can you point me in their direction? Unless they suck. I'm a musical snob and I don't want to be all bitchy toward MGG, because I adore the boy to pieces.

Fell asleep listening to the John Barrowman playlist on my iTunes. Had a very vivid dream about TimeLord!Reid, Companion!Jack Harkness, and Companion!Slutty OC. It was kind of epic. Reid and Jack got drunk and argued over whether the movie reboot or the original series of Star Trek was better. The argument ended with them transporting Gene Roddenberry into the apartment to ask his opinion and reminisce about the time he spent traveling with Reid in a wardrobe shaped TARDIS with C.S. Lewis. Slutty OC had amazing shoes and spent most of the dream asleep on the couch. Derek and Ianto showed up just in time to make pancakes for everyone.
