Happy Canada day to my (not too terribly) Northern Neighbors!

You know a random fact about Eric Northman (on the show True Blood) that I adore? He is the tackiest fucking dresser in vampire history. No seriously. I mean, okay, Ricean vampires have velvet and frills or whatever, but dudes... Northman is all primary colored tank tops and shiny track suits. Hee. That it detracts not at all from his power or extreme hotness makes me very very happy in my pants.

~

ANYWAY. So much fic fun going on this summer!



Woohoo! Hot girl on girl action, ya'll! Climb on into our handbasket! You know the girls just don't get enough girllove!

I'm still reading the Porn Battle VIII entries. Yowza!

I'm hoping to be able to hole up (heh.) in the basement this weekend and do nothing but write -- including some hot femslash, baby! Also original stuff, and work on my Kradam fic.

Where Do I Fall on the Klein Sexual Orientation Scale? )

That's how I've always identified, isn't it? LOL I think these days I'm a little closer to 4 than I used to be, but a past with exclusively het behavior (outside of childhood) sort of skews it.

~

Hm. On one hand, this show looks hot. On the other, it leaves a sort of teen soap taste in my mouth that I'm not sure I'm going to be able to live with. Ah well, we'll see in September!

"I'm not homophobic, I just don't like gay people!"

Hey, you know, everybody's entitled to their opinion and to make the rules for their own community, but if its a public, fannish community, you best be prepared for backlash if you're discriminating against a pretty substantial portion of many fandoms! My favorite example is how they shut down ALL submissions from Torchwood because it has teh GHEYS IN ITOMG! I've been told there are HET relationships in that fandom too! So... they're tainted because of their {big announcer voice} DIRECT CONTACT WITH TEH GHEEEEEYYYYYYZ.

I have little or nothing to do with vidding, but I know a lot of people who I like and respect are, and this is just... NOT ON! I mean, really, why is homophobia still so acceptable? Do we need to make up an "ism" in order for it to be a BAD thing? Okay, how about HOMOHATEISM? There, now can we get upset with people for it? Now can it get serious consideration in public discourse right along with other "isms"? I don't know why this made me so angry, but it really, really did. I mean, it's one stupid vid community that I'd never even heard of before the wounderous [livejournal.com profile] sockkpuppett pointed it out, but ON TOP of all the other indignities heaped on the LGBTQ community in recent days/weeks/months/years/decades, it just... ARGH!

Anyway, so... I can't do a damn thing about it accept urge my readers and friends NOT to submit to, vote on, or even publicly acknowledge the existence of this community beyond maybe spreading the word about its bigotry. Just because the owner says "No offense, it's just not to my taste," doesn't change the fact that it's HOMOHATEISM.

Feel free to join the boycott, but please, as pointed out in the post that started it all, http://mresundance.livejournal.com/643042.html, don't bother hating on the HOMOHATEIST. SHUN HIR/THEM. Much more effective in fandom. Oh! And for added interest (if you're interested at all) how about some historical context regarding the vidding community and exclusion of certain kinds of vids? http://morgandawn.dreamwidth.org/998147.html

Need a cure for that Hate? This video is the funniest, awesomest thing I've seen in a while, and SO APPROPRIATE! Fuck You Very Much! This song also makes me slightly less annoyed with Katy Perry.

Well, that's it for today, kids. I have to take my dad for his SECOND cataract surgery at HOLY SHIT in the morning, so I'm off to shower and bed. SMOOCHIES!

Wait! I almost forgot to have you click on BJPinky (he's all grown up) and as yet unnamed dragonling!

Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

Wallpaper Meme goinked from [personal profile] cerisaye:

Rules:

01. Post this meme along with your current wallpaper.
02. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
03. Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on!

Click to enlarge:


Five sentences? Um... 1. KITTIES! 2. This picture makes me smile every time I see it. 3. KITTIES! 4. They look so sweet, but in reality they're about to have a fight over who gets the chair -- it's a reminder that things are not always the way they seem! 5. KITTIES!

I know, that's cheating, but... KITTIES!

My favorite part of this meme is actually see what programs everybody has on their desktop. *G*

ANOTHER MEME! SHEESH. This one is more serious.

Privilege Meme )

Well, yes, it's important to be aware of how you are privileged, but NOW WHAT? That's what I always end up with coming out of these discussions. I have privilege... and? Can I go back and NOT have gone to summer camp? Should I refuse to accept an apartment or a job because a person of less privilege might not have gotten it? Unpacking my backpack, okay... AND? I don't know. I rarely see any positive effect in this particular discussion. Consciousness is all well and good, but consciousness without a means to act is just spinning your wheels and feeling guilty for things that were not your fault. The best you can do, I guess, is to fight against discrimination however and wherever you can.

DMB Return With Best Album Yet

W00t! That's my boys. However, shouldn't it be "DMB Returns?" It's "Dave Matthews Band," which in this instance is a single entity, not separate individuals. If they named each guy, then it would be "return" -- MIRITE?

But yeah, anyway, this album rocks HARD. I wouldn't say it's their BEST album, but it is fricking amazing! You can check out the album yourself for free at the end of that article, if you're so inclined!

Okay, I usually try to screen the majority of my Adam Lambert squee! from you guys over at [livejournal.com profile] lambert_ducks, but this video was the CUTEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN!





Future Glambert Fangirls of America!

~

I really tried to watch the Tony awards... I wanted to see some stuff from Hair, and... NPH! But he's... not really funny! WTF? :(

It's still on while I finish this, but... I'm kind of bored with it.

Finally, in closing: THE WORLD NEEDS MORE PORN!



Come get some prompts and MAKE SOME PORN! WHEEEE! Every fandom, every pairing/grouping, any possible kink you can imagine! FUN! (Dudes, there are prompts for Disney Princess porn, for eros sake.) (Weirdly though, my prompts for Buffy/Angel and Fred/Willow didn't make it on there somehow. I guess I'll just have to write them myself!)
theantijoss: (Gay Agenda OH NOES!)
Mr. Obama, you rock. Now if only you would change your mind on the marriage equality issue (and a few other things -- I'm really concerned about the various privacy and spying issues that are still Status Quo from the fascist Bush regime. And seemingly getting worse.)

What is Pride?

If, like me, you're stuck in a place with no Pride -- well, not that there's no Queer Pride here, just that there's no big parade. The community is fairly insular, and for perfectly understandable -- though sad -- reasons. I always endeavor to be a good ally, and you know LGBT issues are my biggest political "thing", but I want to spend this month appreciating the contributions and tribulations of the gay community by appreciating its art!

Glaad, for example, has Pride TV a list of LGBT programming on Television.

The Logo Network (imagine, five years ago there WAS no LGBT network!) lists their top 10 Gay Movies You Have to See! Here's the list, if you don't feel like watching the video... )

I'm going to hunt a few of those down myself -- starting with But I'm a Cheerleader!

Music: Okay, first, I found this link, which is MUSIC YOU SHOULD BAN FROM YOUR HOME IF YOU DON'T WANT YOUR CHILDREN TO TURN GAY! Which, to me, means acts that I should probably try harder to support. I don't know if this is a joke or not, but the Jonas Brothers are on there as a "Gateway Band". Man, am I glad I'm not a Christian. I would hate to have to keep decrying the asshats that make my side look bad. *patently ignores the odder of the naked tree dancing Pagans with names like Sir DragonDancer and Lady NutFaery* He also lists the Dresden Dolls as a "safe" band, along with Cheap Trick and Evanescence? o_O

On a more legit note, check out OutVoice.net, home of the LGBT Musicians Top 40 list. I've been a freak for Indigo Girls music for YEARS, and though I've lost interest in her most recent work, Melissa Etheridge as well.

Want to learn something about LGBT visual art? Check out Wikipedia's LGBT Art Portal or GayCity USA's directory of artists' webpages.

Don't forget, our own fannish communities are full of wonderful queer writers, artists, philosophers and other characters, and lots of GAY PORN! *G*

Let's celebrate PRIDE!

RIP David Eddings.

Because of Twilight fame, Quileute Tribe hires a publicist.

I'm not sure how I feel about that. I mean, good for them for hiring someone to help with this, because the series makes soup out of Quileute tradition, right along with playing on the old Native = Animal trope. But still, it makes me uncomfortable that they should HAVE to do that. I don't know.

Extended Vampire Diaries Trailer:



Um... I'm less sure about this now, but... I'll give it a chance. The mantra, "At least it's not Twilight!" goes a long way with me.

Five Reasons the so-called "Buffy" re-boot Won't Work

Here, I have five for you:

1.) No SMG
2.) No DB
3.) No Scoobies/Giles
4.) No Big Bad of the Season
5.) No Joss (I can't believe I just typed that, but there it is)

Several of these are covered in the article. With his other ones, we could make ten. I'm sure all of us together (fandom-wise) could make a list of HUNDREDS.

NO, Kuzui's, NO! Go find something else you're only nominally a part of and gut THAT.

Cheney Backs Gay Marriage

He's still Satan. He's just a slightly less homophobic Satan. It's typical of the right, actually. He only feels like this because his daughter is gay. I remember my mother telling me a lot of stories about when she was coming of age in the 60's, rich women could always get abortions, even though they were illegal. Hypocrisy, they name is self-righteous right wingers!

I don't think basic human civil rights should be a state by state issue, personally.

~

Now this "re-booting" shit is just getting ridiculous. WRITE SOMETHING ORIGINAL, HOLLYWOOD.

~

I've decided to give PORN BATTLE VIII a shot. I haven't written anything in YEARS, but I can do 2500 words as long as nothing horrible happens between now and June 15 *knocks on wood*. I think I'd like to try a new fandom, AND maybe something Buffy/Angel-verse. We'll see.

If you want to see something B/A (or whatever *G*) from me, go over there and comment -- you can do it anonymously if you want. I'm willing to write PORN! in the following fandoms/pairings:

Buffyverse:

B/A (duh)
B/F
B/A/F
A/S
F/S
Frillow

Being Human: I'll try anything, but it will go better for you if it involves Mitchell. *G* I'm fond of Mitchell/Annie, myself.
SPN: Dean/Castiel
Merlin: Merlin/Arthur, Arthur/Lancelot, Morgana/Gwen
True Blood: Eric/Sookie, Sookie/Tara, Sookie/Pam, Pam/Eric/Sookie
HP: Remus/Sirius

I dunno, try me on something and maybe I'll give it a shot. *G* I get to choose whatever prompts I want to write.

What is "Biblical Marriage?"



~

Okay, I'm off to watch the Glee pilot again, because I wasn't watching it closely the first time, and all the SQUEE makes me feel like I missed something. :D

I hope everybody had the most FABULOUS day they could possibly have!
