because I like things that are different...

...i have joined Yaperture, a peer based photography site. How it works is you submit photos, and then the community votes on all submitted photos, and highly rated photos are eligible to be sold on the site for a while. It's a pretty neat thing, actually. Or thus far, for the 16 hours I've been involved.

check out the photos I submitted, and give me a nudge, will ya??

I like sharing...

I like all these random things on the internet, and I never tell anyone about them. So i'm going to start posting them, every few days, as I think of what they are. Today my random share of the day is , which is at the most basic a online comic strip, a blog, and lots of fun fangear.

That comic above is the beginning of my love for Goats. I have the Republicans for Voldemort t-shirt, it's actually my second one! Go fall in love. :)

This is my first advertisement for our 2 week team sale. We're incredibly excited, and some of us are offering some really amazing specials!

About ten of our members are participating, which is about 50% of our team. We're still ironing out all the kinks, but I wanted to go ahead and start our advertising now. The sale starts on Monday, and we're going to be promoting on our blog and in the Etsy forums too, and when get all the official sales announcements in, I'm going to be posting them here too.

For my sale, I'm running a 'Pick Your Special' Sale--I will be changing my shop sections into various types of sales.

because blogging at 12:30 am is therapeutic...(warning. this post could make you angry.)

So, I seriously had to use to look up how to spell 'therapeutic'. Moments like this make me wonder why they gave me a college degree. This thought is also triggered by my inability to figure percentages of random numbers.

Now, in reality, I know that my degree is in neither spelling nor percentage figuring, or anything close to either...though I suppose spelling is big part of a foreign language...but if we want to go there I don't even know how to say 'therapeutic' in Spanish, which might make me feel worse, so I don't think I need to go there.

Okay, so maybe blogging in the wee hours is not a good idea. i posted this because I wanted to talk about how i really really want to start writing more. And sharing more. And then I realized that I don't have what i wanted to share on this computer because I'm on my new laptop (yeah baby!) so now, i just spent like 20 minutes looking through my email (note to self, clean up my email) and i could've typed that poem like 9 dozen times by now...*sigh*

So, enough of that, here's this. If you didn't know I'm sort of a raging liberal, I am, and this poem might make you a wee bit angry if you aren't. Don't hate me. :-)

Note: This poem references a line from Allen Ginsberg's America, which is "America, I used to be a communist when I was a kid and I'm not sorry". The original inspiration for this poem was a class exercise to pick a line from a poem and be inspired by, or write off of this line. So i did it and I love it.

Dear America

I am ashamed of you. My shame grows stronger every time I watch the news.
You hide your mass destruction in the closet with your love for the Contras, Pinochet…
and your distaste for all things progressive.
How many skeletons are there, in that closet,
where you hide the truth about your lies?
Aside from the bodies coming home under that flag of yours,
you kill children, mothers—innocent people who have never wronged you.
Decades later, we still mourn for Vietnam—-yet the millions who died did not teach you.
You hide behind the fallacy of democracy, as though democracy alone can cure the world.
It has not saved you, you wretched whore of a country.
America, you have abandoned your children, your future.
You give us nothing…but expect us to be fed by our First Amendment rights.
You denigrate those who do not meet your standards---the indigenous, the forced.
You hose your own down in the streets when they call you out for your hypocrisy.
Your elderly are forced to push french fries to pay their bills, and your middle class is shrinking because we cannot afford you, but you call yourself successful.
I think I wanted to be a communist when I was a kid and I’m not sorry.
Now I want to be free of all of this, of all you stand for underneath those stars and stripes.
I want you to be something I am proud of.

because I haven't shared this here yet...

Please note that this post contains movie spoilers and if you have not seen Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by now, then seriously, it deserves to be spoiled.

Some of you might know that I am also at Livejournal (though I really don't post there much anymore...)

Anyway, the point of that statement is to bring up one of my favorite things about Livejournal, which would be Movies in 15 Minutes which, if you like movies and you like parodies, is the most glorious thing since, well, probably sliced bread. And I really like sliced bread.

She does all sorts of movies, and has a book that has some in it that I really want to read. I highly recommend checking her out. She might make your day.

Here's a snipet from my favorite one that I've ever read of hers, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. This is actually two snipets, both times when Harry is in the woods with Sirius, the original time and then the travelbackintime time:

Part 1:
Somewhere in the Hogwarts Woods

Harry must conjure a Patronus before the Dementors suck off Siriusdog’s face.







HARRY: *cries*

DEMENTORS: *dement*

PATRONUS: *finally gets off his ass and prances stagfully*


THE AUDIENCE: What? Where?

DEMENTORS: Run away! We are powerless against Bambi’s dad!

HARRY: *falls over*

Later in the story, Part 2 (the italics in this part are the original scene being witnessed by the part 2 Harry and Hermione)

Somewhere Else in the Hogwarts Woods



HARRY: All right, here comes my dad.

HERMIONE: Uh, Harry...?



HARRY: Any minute now...

HERMIONE: Uh... Harry?



HARRY: *cries*

HERMIONE: Uh, Harry? I'm pretty sure you and Sirius are about to die here.


PATRONUS: *prances stagfully*


DEMENTORS: Run away! We are powerless against Bambi’s dad!


HERMIONE: I think I saw a porno like that once.
