[sticky post] Intro  
Photobucket

Nothing spectacularly interesting but I tend to ramble, complain and give too many details of my life outside of the interweb. Can't blame a girl for being too cautious can you.

All things fannish - fics, graphics, etc. - can be found on pixi_fics and will be linked in a public post here. Feel free to friend the community. I occasionally share downloads on p_i_x_i_6_6

Recently my job has become a lot more boring than usual. At first I used to fill my spare time with episodes of TV, things that were currently airing. Then I took to re-watching series of things on Netflix in addition to my daily TV. Now it's getting to the point where I feel as if my brain is melting. Don't get me wrong, I love TV but there's only so much a girl can watch. So I'm here to ask for your help.

Recommend me some books! My default genre when buying books is "Chick Lit" because I use it like my TV, as an escape from having to think to deeply about stuff, as a result I have no idea where to start with other genres. I'm asking you guys because I need new experiences. It can be anything: histories, biographies, crime, sci-fi etc. If I can get it on the Kindle I'll try it. This is your mission should you choose to accept it!

The Grants: I Will Not Lose Because You Can't Win



So I've spent most of 2014 so far creating this fanmix with sometimesartist because we both fell down the Scandal rabbit hole. It's been such a long time that we've been in this place together that we obviously had to commemorate it. The link above takes you to the graphics page. There are spoilers up to 3x07 so if you just want to listen to it go here!

From xfirefly9x

Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal.

ONE | Then and now. The Summer of Sparky, and now, and how it has changed.
Well lets see ... That summer I was still in my teens, we were all care-free and happy. TPTB hadn't killed off any of our ships yet and we had a lot of free time! Now we're all off being responsible and we have like NO free time. The people in control of the TV have killed off pretty much all of our ships and cancelled decent shows. LETS GO BACK TO THE SUMMER OF SPARKY!
TWO | Something funny you've heard or read recently?
By the middle of the 18th Century tea had replaced ale and gin as the drink of the masses and had become Britain’s most popular beverage.
THREE | Recommend me some musics. (You have awesome taste)
I think you need to try out Folded Light and Ben Howard!
FOUR | Most disturbing thing you can think of
... There are these really nasty Korean horror movies ... WHY YOU MAKE ME GO THERE *shiver*
FIVE | Reunite the spoons?
FOR SURE!!!
SIX | Bestest ever OTP?
This is an evil question and you know it. YOU CAN'T MAKE ME CHOOSE BETWEEN MY BABIES!!!!!! That's like asking me which limb I'd rather you cut off first!
SEVEN | Something random
My kitty makes the weirdest sighing noises in her sleep :P

(Taken most recently from amber1960, slightly adapted.)

If you're from the UK and you believe in freedom of speech and an uncensored interenet, you really need to sign this petition. There are others floating about, but that particular one is the best way to ensure that your voice gets heard. It's hosted on the directgov website and addresses parliament directly. If it gets more than 100,000 signatures, it becomes eligible for discussion in the House of Commons.

Everyone's been getting so worked up over SOPA -- and rightly so -- that ACTA seems to have slipped under the radar. This is hugely problematic, because ACTA is a similar bill, but it has the potential to be far more damaging than SOPA ever could be.

Some people seem to have this misconception that ACTA is the 'European SOPA', but that simply isn't true. It's a global treaty, and it's already been signed by eight countries, including the US, Japan, New Zealand and Singapore. Europe votes on Thursday. If they vote 'no', the bill will have to be taken back to the drawing board and reformulated, which should buy us some time at the very least.

If you think this doesn't affect you, you're wrong. If ACTA passes, it could well signal the end of the internet as we know it, and that isn't an exaggeration. It's not just about watching movies and television online. If ACTA passes, sites like YouTube, Livejournal, Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook and even Google and Wikipedia could become impossible to maintain. ACTA would allow ISPs to monitor your net activity and cut off internet access for your entire household if one person is suspected of breaching copyright. Think Big Brother is Watching. I don't think I need to emphasise just how damaging it can be to be without internet access in this day and age, when we rely so heavily on technology.

It's not only bloggers and fandom that would be affected, either. Small businesses, independent film-makers and unsigned musicians who have previously found their niche online would also suffer hugely, and would be at risk of being bullied into submission by Hollywood and multinational corporations under accusations of copyright infringement. All those artists who found fame by uploading covers of songs to YouTube would never have had the opportunity to do so under ACTA, as those cover versions would be prohibited.

I know the internet has its problems, but to my mind it's the single greatest invention to come out of modern times, and it would be an absolute travesty if we were to lose that now. From a personal point of view, I can't even put into words how important this is to me. I've met some of my closest friends through the internet and online fandom, people whom I would likely never have met without it, and it's given me this amazing social support system. I don't want that to end here, and I want to preserve it for future generations so that they can have the same experience and opportunities I've been given through my online interactions.

I know that opinions on the seriousness of copyright infringement and online piracy vary wildly, but that isn't really the point. Internet giants such as Google are opposed to this bill, and it's pretty safe to say that they're not in favour of copyright infringment, as anyone who's ever had a fanvid taken down from YouTube will be painfully aware. Whatever your stance on copyright, this isn't the way to go about dealing with it. This is dangerous legislation that impeaches on some of our most basic human rights, such as the right to privacy and freedom of speech.

So if you're from the UK, please, please sign the petition. If you hail from elsewhere in the world, there may well be similar movements in your own country, but I think the most effective thing anybody can do right now is to keep talking about this. Talk about it on Livejournal, on Twitter, on Tumblr, on Facebook, and anywhere else you can think of. Make sure this issue is never far from people's minds. The internet is an amazingly powerful tool: let's utilise it while we still have the chance.

Please repost and spread the word :)

SAY NO TO ACTA!

Please consider reposting this, especially if you have a large proportion of UK flisties. And please consider spreading the word via other platforms: Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, your own personal network.

Also, Channel 4 has decided not to renew its rights deal for reality series Big Brother after this year and has said it is pumping £20 million into revamping its drama schedule!

I feel like writing but my thoughts are just all over the place at the moment and considering I got a spot on xfirefly9x's list I should at least post it too.

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level. (If you absolutely can't write, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to offer drawings or icons or something instead.)

Anything with Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander in it is worth watching and the procedral drama aspect warrents the creation of a comm to celebrate! Let's hope it's Womens Murder Club/NCIS/Awesome!

In memory of family and friends who have lost the battle with cancer; and in support of the ones who continue to conquer it! Post this on your LJ if you know someone who has or had cancer. 93% won't copy and paste this. Will you?

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request a drabble of ANY pairing/character of their choosing (of ANY fandom) from me (with a prompt, if it pleases you to give me one). In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.

Have fun :)

One day, in a land not too far from here, two fangirls called Tinie and Sammi had way too much time on their hands. They decided to make a LJ community dedicated to Alison Krauss. It was to be newer and shinier than anything that had ever come before it. And so lovewhatiknow was born.

We promise to post at least once a week. Twas decided that the day would be Friday (to heal the Sammi's broken heart). A random squee entry with pictures or videos just so that the community doesn't meet the sad end of it's predecessor.

Interview Me

1) Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me!"
2) I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3) You will post the answers to the questions (and the questions themselves) on your blog or journal.
4) You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5) When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions. And thus the endless cycle of the meme goes on and on and on and on...


My five questions from mizz_magentaCollapse )

claraon asked me.Collapse )

Handwirting Meme

1. Write your LJ username
2. Write your two favorite bands/groups at the moment (not overall, just currently)
3. Write either I ♥ k-pop ; I ♥ j-pop ; I ♥ c-pop (this isn't really for anything, just to see how you draw hearts xD)
4. Write the name of your favorite person of all time (e.g. Yamada Ryosuke)
5. Write down your recently favored person (e.g. G-Dragon)
6. Tag 5 people to do this meme.


Apparently I have nice handwriting *eyes Tinie*Collapse )

Meme Snagged From ubiquitous_girl

Supposedly if you've seen over 85 films, you have no life. There are 270 films on this list. Copy it, paste it into a new post and then put x's next to the films you've seen. Add them up and post at the bottom. Have fun!

And half the movies Ive seen aren't even on this list *facepalm*Collapse )

Note To Flisters

Regarding Christmas cards. If I already have your address it is more than likely that you will get a Christmas Card this year. There are some of you that I know have moved that I want to send cards to and those who weren't on my flist this time last year that I want to send a card.

So if the following could leave their addresses in a comment (THEY WILL BE SCREENED) or if you'd rather send it in an email send it to pixilove66[at]yahoo[dot]com.
speckleberry
calleigh_j
fading_ripples
antiqueskies

I have limited supplies and an even more limited ammount of money for postage so I'm not sending any more than this this year, sorry guys.

Won't be around for a while. Maybe not until the weekend. I know I haven't been on of late but that's because I decided to plough through 10 books in 6 days. I won't be on IM or LJ (sorry tinie I just came back and now I have to go again *pouts*). If you have my number you can text me, or hey if I'm worth the money you can always give me a call. I think I have my cell number on LJ so if any new people want it it's there. Yeah o bye for a bit.
