BBC Sherlock Holmes

So me and my mom just got ourselves a Ruku for Christmas and started a Netflix subscription. I started watching Sherlock Holmes from the BBC. I am going to ask my friends list to spoil me, because I just saw a movie on YouTube. Now having done Vids myself and seeing how wonderful they can be manipulated I realize it can be completely faked. So I ask you allRead more... ) Because if that is true, I am not sure I want to invest my time in the characters.

Invalid Serial Number.... think again

Okay I am peturbed. Actually more then that but I promised myself I would cut out the swearing. My Adobe Photoshoo CS 2 (shut up, I work for a non-profit) installed but it won't open. It says serial number or organization invalid. Please and thank you, but wrong answer! I bought this program and kept the software in the provided packaging. So no it is not an invalid serial number. Adobe says to reinstall it. Darn it that takes at least a half hour!

*I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.

*I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.

*We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.

*I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.

*I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.

*I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.

*I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.

*We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.

*I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.

*I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.

*I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.

*I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.

*I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.

*I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.

*I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.

*I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I did not have to always deal with society hating me.

*I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.

*I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.

Re-post this if you believe homophobia/transphobia is wrong. Please do your part to end it.

Oh WTF Seriously

Watching Criminal Minds episode "Our Darkest Hour" There are rolling black outs. This mother lives in LA. It is night, she lives alone (presumably) has a kid. Goes unlocks door, returns to car to get sleeping kid, returns to now unlocked and mysteriously open door with child in arms, and GOES in the dark house???!!! WTF??? Honestly, not only is that beyond fucking dumb, but also i would like to point out that no single mother, should be without a large dog, and a small yappy one. Don't underestimate those.

Having grown up in Det. The nighttime routine. Was open the door. Call the dogs out to me, tell to heel and guard, return to car, get stuff, return to house, allow one to stay with me while other okays house than go into the dark house.

FYI the woman in this episode was blond. Subconscious cultural joke? Note cool.

Vid idea

I just watched Take Me or Leave Me a McShep Vid done by Jem to to the Rent song of the same name. Which is great and I will link to. When I find it again ( I had downloaded it last night) and as much as I love that song. I was just thinking how great a Mal/Inara Firefly vid it would make. Sighs I don't even know if I have any Firefly source anymore. Anyone else want to make it?

religions pagans vs. wanabe idiots

I admit that I am a Christian. I admit it. My old testament says, "Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live." My New Testament also says, " I am the truth the way and the light, no one shall come to the father except through me."

Neither of these is me.

I believe that my God has been known and is known by many names and in many lands. You have only to look at the evolution of his nam3 in the Old Testament to see this. There is also the absolute uncanny similarities between many of the worlds myths, that is absolutely uncanny to be coincidence.

Therefore, I have no problem with paganism or witches. Live and let live. My commandment that I follow and I believe trumps all the others is " Love your neighbors as I have loved you."

What I do have a problem with, think is absolutely idiotic and just asking for #@$#$#@ trouble? Deciding its Halloween or just plain cool to experiment with something you don't understand, and have not bothered to research. Hey lets try a spell, or summon something ectera, -lets do something we have no business doing, don't understand and have no business doing, and have no supervision for! Then let's scare ourselves friggin scary when it either works or goes wrong, (because guess what religions work and have power!) let's not finish what we started, leaving a big freaking mess!

And because we have scared ourselves silly and or done something stupid or we shouldn't have done- and weren't prepared for the consequences let's not tell anyone, so they can clean up our mess.Or worse only admit we did it years later- so they can clean up the mess. No this is not something personal in my own life, its just something I have heard of about again and again and this kind of incompetence is intolerable!

Unexpected post contravesty: Transgendered

I am probably breaking all he rules of journal here, by not asking the person invovled, but I really want a second opinion.

If I am wrong I want to know, but if it is only one persons thoughts I want to know also.

I have stated that I understand why some people could want to be warned if a fic contains a transgendered pairing. I understand how finding out or having had found out that, your partner had been born a different sex can be a trigger to some people.
This is not to say I think it is wrong in any way. I don't. And I don't think I would have a problem with finding out my partner was transgendered, I had fallen in love with the person not the genetilia.

But, I stated that I still reserved the right to be shocked and maybe a little angry, if I had found out later into the relationship. It was pointed out to me that a person didn't owe me their past, and it shouldn't reflect on the relationship. That if transgendered people and lifestyles truly didn't bother me then I shouldn't be angry.

Again, I concede the point. I think I would be angry though, depending on the length of time that had elapsed in the relationship. I know its dangerous and a weighty thing, and I should be honored. I think it would totally depend on the the circumstances and the length of time involved wither I felt honored they told me or pissed they didn't trust me enough to tell me sooner?

But no right not to be shocked? This I can't seem to agree with. I don't think it has anything to do with wither or not I accept a person, or would leave them or not. Humans regardless of if we want to believe it or not. Categorize people. We do it on looks, sex, gender and a myrid of other things. My hypothetical lover/friend would have just told me that something I believed to be intrinsically true was not. The organization of my world would have to be shifted. Do I not have a right to be shocked? Do I not have the right to sit there and blink a few times, maybe drink a coffee? Does this make me bad person?

I thought that it was the actions I took after the shock and or the length it to me to get over said shock that me a hypocrite. Maybe I was wrong.

Oh and the Note that these were the same justifications that the murders of transgendered people used maybe true, was just -----no, no no. Just no. I am a sociologist. Someone I consider a friend is transgendered. I thought I was open minded, maybe I have indeed found something I need to work on. Have I? However the implication of that note! pisses me off!

Here we go again

I'm seeing it again. Seriously, people SPORK, seriously, really.

The SPORK is a combinaton spoon/fork untensil

It is NOT a reprsentiaton of the pairing that started the slash genre to begin with! OR one of the best frienships to ever hit TV.

*Contemplates what vulcan strength could do to the human with a spork if properly provoked*

NCIS Season Finale.... Spoiler Free

Seriously, this NCIS episode is freaking me out This is not good, how is the team going to get Gibbs out of this? There is not team without Gibbs, there is no NCIS without Gibbs, I mean honesly the show could lose one of the other characters and not lose cohesion but no without Gibbs there is no NCIS. I mean it, and he is not even my favorite character- and he dosen't seem to be trusitng the with anything either. He would kick their asses if it was one of their messes and they didn't clue him so he could help. What's good for the goose Gibbs....

I already feel the need for fic!

writing/fanfic rant

dear writers statements like "uber-ultra Alpha" vibe going are so redundant they make my brain numb and my eyes bleed. It also makes you sound like an under educated teeny bopper that has no bussiness writing about the topics you chose, and certianly fails in the goth atmosphere department.

Please do not ever refer to a member of the male anatomy as a lance or a females as a sheath again. It is not sexy it is funny and almost makes me coke on my coffee and roll my eyes.
