(The Force or the Dark Side, which will you choose?)

In light of all of the recent SOPA talk here, I thought this might be of interest [26 Jan 2012|11:39pm]

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.

Sick of this shit [12 Jun 2009|07:25pm]

I cried yesterday.

I'm used my family saying thing that sound mean, but coming from a " good" place... But it doesn't mean my feelings don't get any less hurt. Maybe I'm just over sensitive, but yesterday just proved that I need to get out of here.

But today was better. I'm not good, better.

At my godmother's house. TTFN.

Oh mr. magazine, never wrote a single thing for you [10 Dec 2006|10:45am]
So my birthday was a blast.

Went to PF Changs with my peeps

It's always fun spending your birthday

With people that care about you.

My last radio show was last night

It was pretty awesome.

Ted wasnt there,

But it's creepy because he got me a present

That he's either going to give to me

Before i leave or he'll mail it

I just hope it's not him

*Shudders*

I'm kind of freaked out.

I totally wasnt serious about him getting me anything

And does he have my address?

Stalk much?

Hopefully that's not the case.

Well, i've been procrastinating long enough.

I always love a good quote. [22 Oct 2006|05:23pm]
I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me, but it's hard to stay mad when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much; my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst... And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it. And then it flows through me like rain, and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.

You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure. But don't worry... You will someday.

--Kevin Spacey (American Beauty)

Votes are in. [09 Aug 2006|09:18pm]
[ mood | too much to handle. ]

For those that voted Felix Dean Robinson won the name poll. however, i really like the last name casablancas, so i'm replacing robinson. but i do appreciate everyone who voted. i am keeping the first two names, so your voting wasnt entirely in vain.

i've been freakishly busy trying to get ready for my brother's wedding, it's like i'm the one getting married. sucks even more because i think my holes closed. and i have to babysit, but i dont know when or where and my hairdresser forgot i was supposed to get my hair colored/done.

and JaNee is leaving and i doubt i'll get to see her before she leave, which sucks because i barely got to see her at all.

and i still have to xclean my room, so i can start packing seeing that i'm leaving in three weekends.

oy to the fucking ve.

only good news is that i found a dress and shoes to wear.
