Protest Wednesday: Anti-SOPA Anit-PIPA

When I read about what these bills and acts were planning on doing I completely lost something in myself. Probably my sanity. My passion leaked a bit from my chest at the idea of US letting THEM censor US like we are puppets in their little industry designed to kneel and nod at their beckon and call. Why would they do this? What do they expect to gain by censoring one of the MOST IMPORTANT amendments that was ever made?- so important, in fact, that it was made to be the 1st!

They claim that this is a way to “protect” copyright infringement… like hell they are. They are basically protecting the “Big names”  (i.e celebs, musicians, etc) and their precious hollywood industry. I wander, don’t some of the musicians post their music own music themselves on Youtube? ( i.e VevoBeyonce, VevoBieber, VevoUsher, VevoMichealJackson, etc) Are they censored too? Hmm, who knows.

Probably not.

I never believed in having to paying ludicrous prices to listen, or read, or watch its stillness with my head cocked to the side- someones hard work and art, I never believed in having to pay for this. You did not have to pay your muse to make you write it, you should be proud enough that people want to see what you have to say; listen to your poetry with the melody in the background; observe your painting in silence. Yes, yes I know if we didn’t fine everything with that dreadful price tag what would the artist get in return? A damn true to heart fan that’s what! An admire of their talent!

I actually like websites like Youtube and…well I’ve never heard of any other website other than Youtube that is run the way it’s run but you get what I’m saying- I like websites like Youtube because they encourage freedom of speech and creativity. They allow us to rightfully listen to music for free and yet they probably pay a price to allow us this luxury.

Some of you wander if the websites are using us to keep them alive and active: why would you ask this if you, yourself, use theses websites for your own voice?- for your own talents and observations, your opinions? I do not think we should have to spend half a decade in prison because we played Single Ladies in our background… I am fighting this and I hope you will too, even with that doubt in your heart. I will not see our first amendment twisted in to a scheme by the government.

Join the blackout Wednesday, January 18th. Or annoy the hell out of the House with hundreds of tweets consisting of your hatred toward the bills.

NaNoWriMo+ Sick= Appropriately Pissed off Teenager

I have just recently come down with something (flu?- cold?) I’m not sure what it is only that is inflicting me with an itchy throat, runny nose, loads of coughing, and making sleepy (though that could be the Benadryl). I haven’t typed a word since- *looks at papers*- since I don’t know!
*cries*
I’m so behind it’s ridiculous!
But!- there is a little bit of good news.
I’m doing quite well on my subject test practice test so yaaay!
Cheer?
Okay fine no cheer- but I’m super happy!
I mean I NEVER had a history lesson and I’m doing pretty well.
I think that deserves some well time!
Ugh.
I hate being sick.
But I am feeling a little bit better and my mind has decided to make itself available again.
So I’m adding to my story as much as I can before I fall asleep ( again) or until I just can’t think of anything else.
Wish me luck!
Or, you know, list a few drugs that could possibly knock this sucker out of me.

NaNoWriMo: I Have Changed My Mind!! (Possibly at the most inconvenient time)

Okay! so my mother found out about nanowrimo (two years ago) and asked me ( of course on the day of the start) if I was going to try it out. I, of course, said “neh” and she says “And Why the Hell not!!?!?!” (hyperbole?) and then “You should join, since you want to be a writer!” (she’s such the enthusiast). I say “Oh I don’t I have time” she says “Well you’re gonna have to learn how to write and study when you get into college (notice how she already knows I’m getting into college a year and a half before I actually graduate Highschool)- this would be great practice!” she says.
So here I am reporting to you guys that I am now a runner in nanowrimo ( thanks to my mother’s optimism ) and I don’t even have a plot yet…
But!- That isn’t too much of an issue seeing as I can write a synopsis in five minutes and then just expand another 49,700 words.
No problem!
(Big problem)
