So, this morning I got up to find out that my good friend Naddy on Twitter was having an issue with someone reposting one of her images from VanCon without permission or proper credit. 

It upset me. And it added on top of the fact that I've seen this happen all over the interwebz (essentially Twitter and Tumblr) a lot more lately. Maybe it's b/c these places are relatively 'new' and douches that like to steal and post without credit think they can get away with it (though, of course, with as connected as everything is now on these sites, IDK how they think they'll get away with it). 

Originally posted this over on my Tumblr.


Piracy - It's only cool in the movies )


There seems to be a certain level of respect here on Livejournal when it comes to reposting/crediting - at least what I see on my flist. So that is a positive. And I'm sure many of you read this going 'oh yeah, this is not a new issue'. Most of us are veterans when it comes to this kinda crap, especially those of us that participate in the creative aspects of fandom such as fic writing/vid making. But it doesn't hurt to call out the bad people doing it every once in a while! XP

I officially hate the post office at my school.


Though it's gotten better by switching all the package handling to the UPS Store, which is open longer AND on Saturday, the problem with the speed at which they get package slips out hasn't improved.


Madre sent out a package with one of my birthday presents (I say one because the birthday present I asked for, the jersey, is gonna take some time still) on Thursday morning. She sent it priority mail and they told her it would be here in two days. For NORMAL places, that would mean Saturday.


I check about an hour ago (because it wasn't there Saturday, not that I expected that) and it STILL wasn't there. *sigh*


To put things in perspective, I get packages from Connecticut at home in Louisiana in two days time...meaning one day in between shipping and receiving. From Louisiana to Florida shouldn't take longer.


I'll be checking again after my last two classes today. Not there by then, I'll move on from annoyed to pissed. *angry eyes*

I was in the SGU Hiatus Project chat (and Drinking Game, hence the current mood) tonight, and Eli's "relationship" with Chloe was brought up.

As serious as could be I said that before we know it, Eli would be pining for Scott, at least in fanfic because Slashers never fail.

And the next thing I knew, someone types 'keep the conversation appropriate' or some shit like that...and I KNEW it was because of what *I* said.


I got yelled at for pointing out an OBVIOUS fact in SG fandom - Slash happens. Hell, I even saw Eli/Scott slash the SAME night Air premiered!


I got yelled at for advocating slash...this pisses me off.


Am I wrong for being pissed off by this??

DAMMIT, I FAIL AT LIFE! I was TRYING to not have another back to back to back twitter post, and here it happened again! GAH! I just got caught up with packing up all my junk for school (head back in the morning - classes start on Wednesday. WHERE did Winter Break GO?!) and ran out of time before the twitter post. *headdesk* MUST fix this problem! LOL!


Soooooo, GUESS what I FINALLY watched today?!? For like the first time evar?!


SUMURU! XD XD XD HOE-MG, I should know better to listen to a SPECIFIC someone when he they say it's bad and not to. Because I LOVED this movie in all it's cracktastic/craptastic awesomepops!! It was horribly bad scifi (Shanks was great, of course. That never changes) that would make for GREAT commentary and/or drinking game. I'll have to watch it again when I have access to the Twitterwebz and can do a proper twitter commentary!! *dances* I love Shanks bad!flicks!


Trying to form a birthday trip to S. Florida. There is a Canucks game on February 11th (10 days before I turn 21) that I'm DYING to see (how often do I get a chance like this to see my favorite hockey team play?!). The only guarantee I think I'll have at this point is somewhere to stay since, you know, I LIVED there for many years and know many people there (including Son of Smurf - he'd most likely be the one to put me up for the trip). So that leaves travel, a traveling companion (though I may have both taken care of it I can convince one of my Twitter friends to go), and the tickets for the game. I REALLY want this to happen - like for seriously. It would be the best birthday present (besides my Kesler jersey, which I want at this point BEFORE said game so I can properly represent the Canucks at the game if I go!)


And now, my yearly Top 25 most played songs meme for 2009. It's gonna be a tad different than last year's because of the whole Lord Danny brain dead period, so I had to start over in August. The rest of the year one (the more accurate assessment of the top 25 most played) is still trapped on Lord Danny's old brain. Also, the song count will be low:


Top 25 Most Played of 2009 )


Alright, bed time. I need to be up in 4 and half hours. AWESOME! *rolls eyes*

Okay, I am NEVER watching At World's End on ABC EVER AGAIN!!


It was all cut to hell and some of it was very important stuff - the whole scene between Tia Dalma and Davy Jones wasn't there, they cut out where Bill says to Will that the Dutchman has a purpose again, and the stuff with Gibbs and Jack in Tortuga after Barbossa steals the Pearl (again). I didn't catch all of the movie, so there's NO TELLING how much was really cut out.


Horribly pathetic and just...pissed me off. Did they think we wouldn't notice ALL of that was cut out??


GAH!

Right now, Sikozu and I are going at it...


At the moment, she's winning by being UP in the attic and refusing to come out...


Sometimes, it's more trouble than it's worth dealing with all these kittehs.


At least the Canucks are ahead and playing well.


UPDATE: She came out and got an earful about going up in the attic.

Just a few things:


- Madre made it through the surgery very well. Smurf called me this morning after she was out, and then I talked to her myself right after Meridian was over (and wow, I bawled so much watching it this time...idk why). She will be able to go home tomorrow at noon, and then Smurf will hit the road and be on his way to pick me up. Found out that Hook is coming with him to help ease up the burden of the long drive - JOY! All I can say is thank GODS for Remmie! *pets perfect little iPod of awesomepops*


- SYTYCD tonight COMPLETELY baffled me! HOW did they BOTH make it into the top 6?!?! There is NO way Ryan was better than Legacy. People who voted just bought into Ryan and Ashley's sympathy story and voted for them OVER the BETTER dancers! *breathes* Doesn't matter anyways - JAKOB will be winning it. When he dances, it's beauty and perfection all rolled into one. I have elected him to be my gay husband.


- HOME tomorrow...or rather, Friday. Which means it'll be cutting close for setting up the VCR for Sanctuary that night. As always...b/c I'm always rushing home for the holidays/breaks to watch some something or other that is premiering that Shanks is in. Over the summer, it was Living Out Loud. Last christmas break, it was Lost Treasure of the Grand Canyon. *snirk*


Alrighty, that's all I've got for now. Today has been pretty uneventful - surprising for finals week.

So, here's things:


- FINISHED my assignment for the [livejournal.com profile] dv_exchange . I am VERY happy about this for a couple reasons. First is I like what I did with the assignment I received. Not that I HAVEN'T liked my past assignments, but considering how I went in expecting to do one prompt and randomly did another is...weirdly satisfactory. The second is because it's DONE, out of the way, ready to be posted when posting opens. Means I can focus on these damn holiday cards!


~ My TV died (meaning the dorm room TV, not the home TV. THAT would be epic!tragedy!). I turned it on this morning JUST to see what Gilmore Girls ep was ending (so I knew which would be on later), and it kinda spazzed out (sound wise - no picture ever came on the screen) and then just...stayed off. I tried unplugging and replugging it. Nothing. The thing is ded. D-E-D, ded. The good news is we have a spare tv at home that I can bring back after Christmas break (if Smurf can't fix it), and thankfully this TV (now dubbed 'Kawalsky' by a loyal Twitter follower) decided to kick it two days before I go home. Also, isn't nice to know i can have a pretty decent sense of humor about it:






- The one thing I REALLY wanted for X-mika (a Canucks home jersey, customized with Kesler's name)?? I'm going to be getting it AFTER all. With Madre's surgery (which is tomorrow, at 7 am...JOY! *sigh*), it didn't seem like we'd have much of a X-mika. And I know it's not about the presents...it's never BEEN about that. Still I know Madre felt bad about not getting me what I wanted (of TWO things, the other being the Farscape boxset). But, we've come into some money and Madre has informed me my jersey, whether it's in time for X-mika or not, will be the first this she gets with this money. THIS is why I love my mommy. She really is the bestest!


- Found THIS watching Under the Mistletoe Sunday evening, and I was greatly pleased:

Cutted for size... )

Alrighty, I think that's it for tonight. I volunteered to polish off the last of the undisclosed beverage drink in the freezer, so the world is a bit spinny right now and brain is a bit mucked up. ;)


~Pip


P.S. - With all this L4D gameplay (all Kilplix and friends at this point) I've been watching lately and seeing how tied in these guys are to specific characters, I have to wonder - What character does Shanks like to play most?? Does he have a preference (and I'm assuming he would)...it's something to ponder, I think. *shrugs*

I shouldn't do this because at this point, they don't really deserve it...


BUT COME ON CANUCKS!! ONE LAST RALLY CALL!!! TIE UP THIS GAME AND TAKE IT TO OVERTIME!!



EDIT: That was pointless. They lost...though, I must say there was a nice rally at the end there. And they weren't bad...but they weren't GOOD either...


Props to Luongo, though. Not counting the one goal let in (which was not his fault), he was probably the best player all night.
