12th-Aug-2014 08:06 am - Robin Williams
jf the lonely chair
I was in shock last night when I heard about the loss of Robin Williams. He was a man of so much talent; known to be a genuinely generous and sweet; a wonderful 'normal guy'. Unfortunately, like so many talented people there are many inner demons including addiction and depression that he dealt with for years. As much as I loved his comedic talent, I loved him for his serious roles. Years ago, when Comic Relief was a yearly event, one of the many times he cohosted with Billy Crystal and Whoopi Goldberg, he got riffing spontaneously on stage with his cohosts and I found myself laughing 'til I cried right along with most of the audience right along side of Billy and Whoopi - neither of whom had a prayer of keeping up with Robin. It's a memory I will treasure together with the thought of the wonderful, sweet man that stepped in and helped Christopher Reeve and his family after Chris's tragic accident. Sometimes laughter really is the best medicine, sadly Robin is now forever lost to the world. Our lives are now a little less bright, a little less happy....

Does anyone know of a QAF fanfic finder lj comm or other site?

I'm looking for a future!fic where Brian and Justin are together and have been together like close to 20+ years. I think they're living in europe (maybe France or Italy?) and Gus coming for a visit (maybe to introduce them to his fiancee?). I'm not certain if Brian and Justin are married - it might be that they have a civil partnership with all the necessary legal paperwork that basically ensures that they are treated as uf they're married.

I don't remember where I read it or who the author is. And Googling doesn't seem to bring it up either. Any help and/or pointers of where to ask would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

the details are a bit vague and perhaps I've muddle them in with another story?

The Sheppard and team are on a planet and they end up in a 'brothel' and because they all fell asleep - they wake up naked or nearly so and all their weapons and possessions have been stolen. I think it was part of a larger mission - they were working towards completion?

help?

When they marched for the women's right to vote 100 years ago, they were imprisoned, put into strait-jackets and force fed until they vomited blood. They fought for your right to own property, to have access to birth control and your right to an education. This video is fun and clever and hits on some hard truths. And it makes you ask yourself...what I am willing to do today to fight back and protect our rights as women and citizens?

Spread the word. Link to this post if you want. I have it unlocked so everyone can see it. Do everything in your power to get the word out and make this known to everyone.

GET INVOLVED. STOP AT NOTHING. THE WORLD MUST KNOW.

I dare you to stop scrolling through your dashboard. Stop checking your Facebook newsfeed that you’ve already checked two seconds ago. Stop updating your Twitter and seeing what your favorite celebrities are saying. Stop watching funny and nonsense videos on Youtube. Take time to educate yourself to MAKE A DIFFERENCE in this world. This is your chance! WATCH THIS VIDEO.

Let’s make JOSEPH KONY Famous!!

Who is JOSEPH KONY?

He is THE WORST LIVING CRIMINAL. He abducts children and makes them use guns to kill their own parents. He takes girls and forces them to be sex slaves. He calls his abducted children the Lord’s Resistance Army, AKA the LRA. He has abducted over 30,000 children and forced them to be child soldiers in Central Africa. He remains at large because he is INVISIBLE to the world. FEW know his name, even FEWER know his crimes. WE ARE MAKING HIM FAMOUS! Because when he is, the world will unite against him and demand his arrest.

We can help make a change. We can make a difference.

I feel so inspired. I feel the need to help and make a difference. This has to happen in 2012. We can’t let him go around and keep doing this to children in Central Africa. Let’s make his name known so he can be stopped. HE CAN NO LONGER BE INVISIBLE!
NOTE: THIS ORGANIZATIONS POLITICS AREN'T IMPORTANT TO ME. I HAVE NO INTENTION OF GIVING THEM MONEY. YESTERDAY I DIDN'T KNOW WHO JOSEPH KONY WAS. TODAY I DO. I THINK EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW WHO THIS MAN IS AND WHAT HE'S DONE. THAT'S WHY I POSTED THIS VIDEO -- pfyre

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.

Essential ACTA Resources

  • Read more about ACTA here: ACTA Fact Sheet
  • Read the authentic version of the ACTA text as of 15 April 2011, as finalized by participating countries here: ACTA Finalized Text
  • Follow the history of the treaty’s formation here: ACTA history
  • Read letters from U.S. Senator Ron Wyden wherein he challenges the constitutionality of ACTA: Letter 1 | Letter 2 | Read the Administration’s Response to Wyden’s First Letter here: Response
  • Watch a short informative video on ACTA: ACTA Video
  • Watch a lulzy video on ACTA: Lulzy Video

Say NO to ACTA. It is essential to spread awareness and get the word out on ACTA.

They pulled both SOPA and PIPA, yah!

But...(and you knew there was going to be a but):
SOPA Defeat Is Not the End Of Hollywood's Ramped-Up Fight Against Piracy (Analysis)

This is what Hollywood is saying and what they are planning: push for more criminal federal and international enforcement, use the courts to get civil injunctive relief, and keeping rewriting the copyright laws in their favor. Remember the lawsuit against Youtube is still to be decided. Imagine Youtube being out out of business just like Megaupload (although Youtube is not even coming close to pulling some of the boneheaded Megaupload moves).

"SOPA protesters roundly cheered when DNS-blocking was taken out of the anti-piracy bills before Congress. But just because Congress won't explicitly approve such measures doesn't mean that they won't happen. In piracy cases going forward, Holllywood can ask sympathetic judges to grant such relief anyway."

Since I know we're in it for the long haul and that the efforts to silence speech in favor of corporate interests will continue, I plan to carry on with the SOPA Boycott in March.

Nor am I alone in coming to this conclusion:

"The MPAA studios hate us. They hate us with region locks and unskippable screens and encryption and criminalization of fair use. They see us as stupid eyeballs with wallets, and they are entitled to a constant stream of our money. They despise us, and they certainly don’t respect us.

Yet when we watch their movies, we support them....They use our support to buy these laws.

So maybe, instead of waiting for the MPAA’s next law and changing our Twitter avatars for a few days in protest, it would be more productive to significantly reduce or eliminate our support of the MPAA member companies starting today, and start supporting campaign finance reform.

Barrowman: Starz ordered edgy 'Torchwood'
Published: Sept. 9, 2011 at 3:29 PM
By KAREN BUTLER

NEW YORK, Sept. 9 (UPI) -- Scottish-born actor John Barrowman says he was delighted when he heard America's Starz network would be joining as a creative partner on his sexy science-fiction series "Torchwood," which had previously aired on the BBC.

"I thought it was fantastic, I have to tell you. All the worry [about Americans becoming involved in a popular U.K. series] came from other people. It was not a worry from me at all," Barrowman, who was raised in Illinois from the time he was 8, told UPI in a recent phone interview.

Barrowman said he knew all was OK because series creator Russell T. Davies and executive producer Julie Gardner were involved in the latest run of episodes.Read more...Collapse )
