LJ Strike [Mar. 20th, 2008|12:20 pm]
may angels lead you in

The one-day content strike is on for this Friday, March 21, from midnight GMT to midnight GMT. Here that translates to Thursday, March 20, 5:00 PM -

For 24 hours, we will not post or comment to LJ. Not in our own journals, not in communities. Not publicly, privately, or under friends-lock.

Why? Because the new owners of LJ said they were going to listen to a user driven advisory board before making any changes, and didn't. They instead tried to take away all GLBT related interest groups, and were about to take away all free, ad free accounts as well and make LJ paid. Basic/free users help drive this site! And paid or not, our interests should not be dictated to us.

This is a protest that will have long-lasting effects, showing up forever in the daily posting statistics.

This is a protest that will not harm LJ in the long run, as leaving LJ might do.

This is a protest that will demonstrate the power of community, as all users unite to support Basic users and the concept of ad-free space.

This is a protest that will educate the new owners that LJ is driven by user-created content.

Content Strike Friday March 21, from midnight to midnight GMT

* We are holding the Content Strike because we want to demonstrate that LiveJournal is content-driven.
* We are holding the Content Strike because we want the new owners of LiveJournal to better understand the power and resolve of the LJ Community of Users.
* We are holding the Content Strike because all of us, Paid, Permanent and Plus users as well as Basic, want to demonstrate our solidarity as a Community of Users. We do not consider Basic users to be freeloaders, we consider them to be valuable content-providers and Friends.
* We are holding the Content Strike because we ache to do something to show our displeasure, and commenting on the news post -- even with cat macros -- just isn't powerful enough!


The strike has three terms:

1. Restore basic accounts for new account creation.
2. Inform users before any change to the site that affects how we use the site or demands on our resources.
3. Run change proposals by the Advisory Board and take their advice into account before implementation of any change.


The 24-hour strike will begin at the following times for the following locations:

Thursday, March 20, 2:00 PM -- Honolulu
Thursday, March 20, 4:00 PM -- Anchorage
Thursday, March 20, 5:00 PM -- San Francisco; Los Angeles -
Thursday, March 20, 6:00 PM -- Mexico City; Denver - Navajo Nations in AZ.
Thursday, March 20, 7:00 PM -- Chicago
Thursday, March 20, 8:00 PM -- Montreal; New York
Thursday, March 20, 9:00 PM -- Buenos Aires
Midnight -- London
Friday, March 21, 1:00 AM -- Paris
Friday, March 21, 2:00 AM -- Istanbul
Friday, March 21, 3:00 AM -- Moscow
Friday, March 21, 4:00 AM -- Dubai
Friday, March 21, 5:00 AM -- Islamabad
Friday, March 21, 6:00 AM -- Bangladesh
Friday, March 21, 7:00 AM -- Bangkok
Friday, March 21, 8:00 AM -- Singapore
Friday, March 21, 9:00 AM -- Tokyo
Friday, March 21, 10:00 AM -- Brisbane
Friday, March 21, 11:00 AM -- Sydney
Friday, March 21, 12 Noon -- Suva


How Can I Help?

DO post about this in your own LJ.
DO post and comment about it in appropriate communities.
DO remember that it's based on Greenwich Mean Time, which may not be your local time.
DO turn off LoudTwitter and your RSS feeds for 24 hours.

DON'T forget to get permission from community mods before making an off-topic post or comment about the strike.
DON'T be spammy with your posts or comments about the strike.
DON'T forget to turn your LoudTwitter and RSS feeds back on when the strike is over.
DON'T post anything on LJ from midnight to midnight March 21 (see above times for your actual start time)

[WTF am I listening to? |Loosing You - K's Choice]

Loosing you by K's Choice

Welcome the rainbow, fading to gray
Spinning around us, making mistakes
I'm looking for something like most of us do
I'm looking at god but he's looking at you
He looks for a driver to take him back home
To get it together by being alone
I'm sure he's a writer, he wrote me just now
The letter is empty like I'm living now

But that feels good to do
Compared to losing you

Do I need a baby to smother the pain
To stop all I live through from being in vain
Vanity fills me, vanity's nice

Self injurerors awareness day [Mar. 1st, 2006|10:46 am]
may angels lead you in
© show some heart ©

Self-Injury: You are NOT the only one.

Monday, March 1, 2004 is SI Awareness Day.

"We are male and female and trans. We are artists, athletes, students, and business owners. We have depression, DID, PTSD, eating disorders, borderline personalities, bipolar disorder, or maybe no diagnosis at all. Some of us were abused, some were not. We are straight, bi, gay, pansexual and asexual. We come from all walks of life and can be any age. We are every single race or religion that you can possibly think of. Our common link is this: We are in pain. We self-injure. And we are not freaks."

So i posted this a year ago and Ill post it again this year. I am not a self injuror , but I do have loved ones in my life that are.. and I fully respect them and love them.

US state takes aim at abortions

Pro- and anti-abortion demonstrations clash in Washington DC
Pro- and anti-abortionists recently marked 33 years of Roe v Wade
A US state legislature has approved a bill to ban most abortions, in a move aimed to force the US Supreme Court to reconsider its key ruling on the issue.

The South Dakota draft law - which needs approval by the governor, known to be against abortion - seeks jail for doctors who perform terminations.

Exceptions will be made if a woman's life is at risk, but not for rape.

Many believe new appointments to the Supreme Court may have tipped the balance in favour of anti-abortionists.

Clearly, this is a devastating day for the women of South Dakota

Outright Closing. [Feb. 23rd, 2006|06:23 pm]
may angels lead you in
[and how do i feel about that? |depresseddepressed]
[WTF am I listening to? |"kite song" Patty Griffin]

So, its official, the Portland Outright is closing.
And I honestly can say I dont know how I feel about it. I dont have many feelings about it. In my mind, it kind of closed well before this week. In my mind it closed when forrest Ave closed and lost its staff members.
Outright has been apart of my life for a good five years now. It has been my support. It was where I grew up, metaphorically speaking. Ive accomplished so much through it.. and gained so much through it. And my heart will remain with the spirit of it.
In the spirit of it.. sounds funny ya know.. because in the last year or so.. there has been hardly any spirit. There has been no growth.. there has been very little to no success with it.. Dead weight.. im not saying theres been no point of having outright exsist in the past year or so.. I know that people have still continued to use it as a resource if needed. But it has slowly but surely died. Not to be ressurected. 25 or so years and the flame has blown out. (not to be used as a funny gay reference)
So my feelings.. I dont seem to have feelings so much as I have thoughts.. and my thoughts are well.. scattered.. I do understand that there is some talk about a new queer organization.. and I was telling a friend today that this very well may be the start of something new and beautiful.. it might be the opportunity Portland needs to get its tourch going again.. And the understanding I have is that there are alot of profound people working on this new project.. and I very much want to be involved.. I very much want to help start something new. ..
But I guess these are my scattered thoughts on this all..

[WTF am I listening to? |Ellis Paul "Here she is"]

If you could paint her, she'd be a Picasso.
She's got a few things out of place.
Like when she smiles, it's slightly out of line.
It's half awkward, yet half grace.
While you're unraveling this mystery
Of where she fits in time and space,
She'll drag you into this lover's tale,
Though she will not give a reason.
And if you fight her tooth and nail,
She won't give up until you lose...

[WTF am I listening to? |"Top of the World" Patty Griffin]

So I mentioned a little while ago Ive been loosing weight. I lost 10 more lbs.. which means 40 lbs all together..
I feel so good about myself.. and proud of myself.. I can pretty much see my belt thing.. which may not sound like a big deal to you.. but it very much is to me.
And for the first time in over two years.. My knees dont hurt all the time and the feet dont hurt as bad either.. I can come home from work and wont have to rest my knees..

People are just now noticing..

It also felt so good to have my Nana pay me a compliment for once..
shes always going on about how I should loose weight and grow my hair out..
and Ive been doing both.. well sorta.. the length of my hair is longer than it has been in a year.. I really like it at this length too. Its not uber long.. but the top is where I actually need to comb it..

I guess this is my feel good post for now.

and now my friend is complaining about her life to me.. but im not going to let it bring me down.

[and how do i feel about that? |accomplishedaccomplished]
[WTF am I listening to? |Patty Griffin "You are not alone"]

I woke up to a new year this morning. Its just like any other morning and I dont expect change. I think thats what people think of new years, its kind of like a Birthday, you wait and wait and wait and expect to feel older, expect to feel grown up. But you're still the same. New Years is exciting for people because it means, new goals, resolution. It means amense, and it means diet, and self retrospective. And I think most of these are good. I'm doing some of them myself.
Looking back on 2005 it wasnt that bad of a year. I accomplished alot. I did alot. Yes, I've had my bad days during the year but who doesnt? I started testosterone, I got the downpayment for a date for surgery. I got my own place and I have a job. I've kind of made piece with myself.
Now, 2006 approaches us, and I will take this with me for the year;

In all of the excitment of growing up, the waiting to become older, to be all of a sudden grown up and more knowledgeable, wont happen in a day or maybe in a month or maybe even in a year, but it will happen throughout the day and the month and the year and before you know it, you've become that much older and wiser, and you would'nt have even realized it.

I think thats my epihany for 8:30 in the morning.
