Writer's Block: Tea for two

In the books only? I would probably choose The Vampire Armand (by Anne Rice) but I think he wouldn't like me so I guess I'll go with Wizard Howl (Howl's Moving Castle) and flirt with him? Seriously, though! I want to meet a lot of fictional characters! But this time I might go with Howl. He is such a charmer. lol

Writer's Block: American Censorship Day!

This bill shows how the US political system is bent around lobbyists.  The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) is only in the interests of large media owners, like the MPAA. In a clear case of over-reaching, the law claims to attempt to deal with piracy in other countries by criminalizing actions in the US.  Basically, punish everyone for criminals you can't catch.  Brilliant.  No, I mean stupid.

Policy decisions today often form on these warped views.  If you watched the news on Wisconsin, you would have seen a meltdown over unions.  What you wouldn't see is what won that particular election: traditional moderate conservative values.  Read a policeman's account of leaders turning against their own people because they wanted the bubble to keep growing.

Corporations are only interested in their own profits, shortsighted as they might be.  A business will sue their own insurance company for their own crimes.  Government and laws cannot be so shortsighted.  People must come before profit.  SOPA cares only for the dying corporations.

Uh, no. Free speech is free speech. I don't care if you think it's censoring porn, this is a direct trampling of free speech. Make all porn companies HAVE to use a .xxx domain instead so it can be blocked more easily.

Sure, I understand the trying to make sure musicians are getting their fair credit for videos. I get that. But this could trample on musicians who are making their own ways without big companies to protect them.

This is a direct way for them to trample on people who are trying to express dissatisfaction as well. People who are trying to spread the word about movements against policy A or action B in the government.

Having the leading figure in the country be able to shut off the internet in the event of a major emergency in the country is one thing (Despite the fact I can't see a reason it would ever apply) but actually censoring what's put up on it? What are we, China? (I love the Chinese peoples and cultures, I just question their government.)

Зачем России вступать в ВТО?
  • qurda

Вопрос дня: Всемирная торговая организация

Членами Всемирной торговой организации (ВТО) являются 146 стран. На их долю приходится почти 96% мирового товарооборота. Основная декларируемая цель ВТО – устанавливать правила международной торговли и разрешать спорные вопросы, бороться с дискриминацией и предотвращать ее, обеспечивать максимальную свободу и здоровую конкуренцию в международной торговле.

Цели вроде благие, принципы сформулированы красиво – полная свобода экспорта и импорта товаров и услуг, отсутствие барьеров при их обмене между странами. Однако не все так просто.

Для принятия какой-либо страны в ВТО требуется выполнение определенных условий – 28 основных соглашений и целый ряд так называемых селективных. Причем основные соглашения ВТО носят иногда противоречивый характер. К примеру, торговый либерализм может сочетаться с протекционистскими методами в отношении отдельных отраслей или регионов.

Основные соглашения стран-участниц ВТО – о торговле и тарифах (GATT), о торговле услугами (GATS), о торговых аспектах прав интеллектуальной собственности (TRIPS), о субсидиях и компенсационных мерах (регулирует субсидии промышленности), о сельском хозяйстве. В основе соглашений лежат две следующие ключевые идеи.

• Страны имеют право на защиту своих товаров, но эта защита должна сводиться к тарифной. Исключение из данного правила возможно лишь в случае плохого сальдо торгового баланса. Тогда страна может ввести количественные ограничения на импорт. Странам, имеющим статус развивающихся, предоставляется больше гибкости в этом вопросе.

• Снижение либо полное снятие тарифов и других барьеров с помощью многосторонних переговоров. Каждая страна соглашается на определенный уровень связывания тарифов (график) и должна его придерживаться. Уровень связывания может отличаться от уровня, оговоренного соглашениями о снижении тарифов.

Раз в четыре года страны-члены ВТО собираются на министерскую конференцию для подведения итогов и принятия новых деклараций. Как правило, каждое новое подписанное международное соглашение оборачивается дополнительными требованиями для стучащихся в дверь соискателей членства в этой организации. И не всегда поощрение конкуренции, прописанное в лозунгах ВТО, приводит к оздоровлению и развитию национальной экономики страны. Оно может, наоборот, подорвать конкурентоспособность, если экономика страны-соискателя членства в ВТО к этому не подготовлена.

No!!!!

I've e-mailed my Congresspersons. The US government has a history of "mistakes" and poor judicial oversight on internet law enforcement; this is not the sort of power we want to give people who are already abusing what they have.

Furthermore, the bill is funded and lobbied for by big media/Hollywood, in the name of "protecting" copyright. Studies have shown that the picture big media/Hollywood paints of piracy is very flawed; it neither accurately reflects who is pirating or why they pirate, it also vastly overestimates the damages done to the industry. The effect that piracy is having on sales is low at most; most studies suggest that it is minimal, and several offer the opinion that it should be considered a positive force, as many pirates go on to purchase legitimate copies of the movies/music they like. (Hollywood is simply blaming piracy for its own failure to adapt its marketing and sales models to an ever-changing world.)

Instead of coming up with idiotic bills like this why don't they spend time on creating jobs for the unemployed, fixing healthcare so that it isnt so damn expensive, and stop being greedy sons of bitches. I thought being a leader in this country was supposed to be about doing what is best for the people as a whole and not doing what is best for themselves in some selfish and sick way.

Uh, probably some characters from KHR, Kuroshitsuji, and Ao No Exorcist.
Since I've just started reading/watching Ao No Exorcist, I cannot really say who I want to spend a day with. I know only a character or two -.- I can answer for the other two manga's, however.

KHR -
Belphegor, of course, and I will beg him to help me master knife-throwing lol.
Or with Fran, we will mock everyone all day. Verbal attack times two. Epic.

Kuroshitsuji -
The smexy demon, Sebastian, mehehe. And the spoiled young master, Ciel.
Oh wait, I can choose only one?
That was harsh. I cannot choose. Both are my favorite. /sob/
Actually, I want to spend a day at the Phantomhive manor. It would be chaotic, and fun. I love disorder and mess.

Oh, I sound psychotic? Yeah, I thought so. I question my state of mind, to be honest. LOL

That's all. I was bored with works and saw the Writer's Block topic. I have been into Japanese manga and anime lately so I decided to answer this question. Going to bed soon.

Maybe the sky would be dark and full of stars, and the air would be warm. Maybe there would be rings around the moon and dew on the grass. 

The kind of night where it's so quiet, so still that you can almost hear the waves lapping against the shore on some far distant beach.

The kind of night where maybe, back when you were a kid and dragging along behind your mom on a reluctant moonlight walk, you could have imagined the road under your feet leading to another world where it disappeared into the darkness - like stepping through a veil to find castles on the horizon and serpent-headed boats docked at the foggy shore, dragons shaking the earth as they roared into the sky.

Back when you hadn't quite grown up, not yet, not really - hadn't seen how complicated the world was, how sad it could be or how glorious - but all you know is that there's so much out there, so much mystery to find and history to explore and future to create, and you just want to get on your feet and go, go, go.  Because you want to see alien stars and distant mountains and different cultures, and you don't know much but you know it'd be - -

And then it's just running out the front door barefoot, pajamas baggy and ugly, hair messy and unbrushed, not a cent in my pocket or a person who knows where I've gone - only me, the Doctor, and the TARDIS, next stop: Anywhere.

Hello owl

Writer's Block: It's payday!

What would you do if you had a million dollars?


Oh man. I would just... -shakes head- There is so much, so very much that I would do with that. Or that I would love to do anyway.

To start, I would love to buy my mom and her (supposed) soon to be husband their own house to give them their own space to really flourish as a couple and individuals. Right now they live in his father's house with his brother and there is a lot of stress. Then I would help them buy the furniture they would need to fill the space because my mom only has five pieces of furniture at this moment, at least three of which I would get her to replace. Topping that off, I would set a large amount of money set aside to ONLY pay her bills. That would let her use her own income for her food, meds and general needs/wants.

She's having a lot of health problems right now, so I want nothing more than to make things as easy and comfortable as possible besides the presiding desire I have had for years to give her stability. She had a rough childhood, raised four kids on her own and both chosen to/had to move a great many times in her life, dealt with period(s) of homelessness where she slept in her car and those are just the general/broad topic problems. She may not have always been the best mom, but I think she still more than deserves some good things to happen to her.

Talking about this has given me the desire to actually begin buying regular lottery tickets when I get a new job and just hope that she is still around for my win. Though I guess the first thing I really should do is pay for whatever medical things she needs in order TO be around for the rest of my plans.

I think all of that would probably eat up a really large chunk of that money. With the rest, I would probably buy a house for my best friend's mom with some space for Kailey til she moves out, but not be an overly big for the empty nest portion of life; the space will be good for letting either daughters or me or anyone else to stay over and give Becky company. Besides that I would also buy out the loan they have holding them down to three defunct cars, sell them then buy a new car for both Becky and Kailey, perhaps an amount set aside for gas allowances to relieve that stress on the budget for a while.

For myself I would pay off the various debts I have, probably buy myself a car and set aside something for the future costs of gas, maintenance and such things.

I probably won't have enough money for all of that let alone any thing else, but I would probably get a net book for myself, a laptop/desk top for Mo and whatever other fun treats I could manage for family and close friends that come up. I would really cry a lot if I won because I would be so immensely happy to bring even a fraction of these ideas into reality, especially the ones for my mom.

If there is one thing I don't support is censorship.

I don't live in the usa but I'm scared anyway 'cause I don't know how this will effect me. Will I still be able to access lj and all the other places? and if I do, will I still be able to write what I wanna write without someone telling me that 'no you can't write it like this, censor it'

Since I'm not from the usa I'm not sure how this works but I assumed that usa have something similar to what we have here in sweden, directly translated as 'groundlaws', these are the laws our society is kind of built on, and if someone tried to get a similar censorship system to go through here, it would be conflicting with two out of our four groundlaws.
So I looked up the bill of rights that the usa have and I can't kind of grip how the bill can pass when the first amendment is still there. The first amendment state:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

So since there not trying to pass a law, it can go through? I been trying to find information on how this works but I've been coming up short, so if someone want to explain it to me or link me somewhere where I can read about it I would be happy.

Another thing I'm scared of is that I won't be able to talk to my friends around the world if the bill passes. What if they are blocked?

I don't like this. It feels like if this bill passes it will be the end of the internet and I will tell my children and grand-children that when I grew up, the internet was a place for freedom where you could do almost whatever you wanted, that you weren't censored and that the internet was better in the old days.

The time here is now a bit over three am and I'm going to bed now. Over here it's already the 17th and I'm trying not to think about that when I wake later on, will I still be able to access facebook and lj like usual? Anyways, bed.
Sorry about if I'm not making sense in what I'm talking about, I blame it on being very tiered, but I had to get it out before going to bed.

I LOVE YOU INTERNET AND FREEDOM OF SPEECH!!!

Most of the pirated stuff I've seen, I didn't pay anyone anything for. I'm confused here....

What is your favorite Disney movie?
My absolute favorite Disney movie without a doubt is Beauty And The Beast. Although I must say that The Lion King comes in a very close second. Cinderella was also a fave of mine. I can't forget my classic favorite, The Sword In The Stone. For some Halloween fun? I love Hocus Pocus. I especially love it when the one witch says, "A muck a muck a muck a muck." LOL!

Ok so that was definitely more than one but hey, who's counting? Well me obviously but yeah...

Back soon with a true update. Not that the writer's block questions aren't true updates but I'm sure my readers would like to see me post more than the occasional answer to the questions.

Writer's Block: The happiest movies on earth

What is your favorite Disney movie?


This has changed over the years... but as of today, the Disney movie I most want to watch and cannot do without is Ratatouille. Granted, that's if Pixar influence is included.

Excluding Pixar films, my choice would be Who Framed Roger Rabbit. ... And if that's more Touchstone than Disney to you, then Aladdin is my favorite Disney movie, just edging out Beauty and the Beast.

You know, more than anything else, I miss the crack animation team that did most of Disney's animated films in the late 80's, and the 90's.
Ninja, Cyborg, Rising Raiden, Dark Soldier

Writer's Block: Tea for two


The Doctor, either his tenth, or eleventh Incarnations.

Reason: All of Time and Space, Everything that has, is, and ever will be, where would I like to start?

Also because he's The Doctor! We'd be good comrades fighting against the Daleks, Cybermen, and just plain old adventuring. What more to like?


OR!

Solid Snake: He's the fictional hero since my childhood. I look up to that guy, and would fight with him against anyone he and Otacon are up against.
If you could spend a day with any fictional character, who would it be and what would the two of you do?

If you could spend a day with any fictional character, who would it be and what would the two of you do?
If I could spend a day with a fictional character, it would be Shion. He always keeps smiling and I used to be like him. But recently, I'm living like a hell. I show a tendency to smile and keep everything hidden. And it hurts my throat. My best friend told me I had to tell what I feel so I try to change for that, to keep sane. But I miss being called "the sun". Today, it is as if I've never smiled or my smile sounds more like a fake than what it was.

Yes, I'll be with Shion. We'd just travel hand in hand and always look for fun. We'll be all lovey-dovey and talk about lots of thing we like.We'd comfort each other during difficult moments. Because I know he would protect me and be mad if something bad happens to me, I can feel secure and, cause I love him, I would just do the same.

I could picture us in a peaceful scenery like a mountain, or we'd walk on the hill. Oh! We would just stop at some ice cream shop and enjoy our semi-soft frozen dessert while chatting. And by the way, why not opening a small ice cream shop? We'd work together and our house would be on the floor above ♪ Yes! Sounds great to me! I just want to be with him and I don't care about people's point of view.
