Answer for question 4432.

Do you generally hold grudges? Can you think of a time where it was (or still is) difficult to forgive someone? What was the situation?
Not really, I'm more of the blow up, be mad for 10 minutes, then cry and it's over.

As for ex's. My ex married the woman he cheated on me with. I wasn't happen with either one of them. And when they were first together it was a lot of drugs and alcohol so I didn't let my son visit at their house. His had supervised visits at his parents house. BUT a few years later she was diagnosed with cancer and changed her life for the better and one of those things was my son. She really became a good step-mother to him. She was hospitalized one year and my son was making one of those personalized cards from a vending machine. When it came to putting her name he stopped and kept looking at the video keyboard. I ask him if he wanted to put "mom" and he nodded and he did. After that we started talking when she came to his parents, (did I mention I was with the boy next door, literally, his parents lived next door to us) and we became friends. He was still doing the drugs and alcohol but she really changed. She wrote me a letter once telling me that to change her life-style she had to stop seeing her druggie friends and didn't have any friends left, and would I be her friend. I said yes, but we could never talk about her husband, lol

She passed away a few years ago and I sit here crying just thinking about her. My son loved her and that's all that mattered to me.

But to this day I still don't talk to my ex, he's still a druggie and I don't need that, so maybe I do hold a gudge, lol

Bummed...

See this is why I stick to Arashi fandom.  I heard a song by a british band that I've basically been ignoring for 4yrs and I like this song, I find a few more songs I like and I go to Youtube and start watching interviews.  They remind me very much of Arashi, the dorkiness, goofyness, the fun and laughter.  So I I've never had a problem ording things in the Arashi fandom so I though...go for it.

I pre-ordered their new album...it was to arrive the Friday before November 17.  I'm still waiting, they said they sent it on November 21, it's now Dec 2 and I have no album.

I'm sticking with the Arashi fandom...

Thank you!

Korean Drama Faith

I really looked forward to this drama...and I'm enjoying 80% of it.  

I love watching Lee Min Ho in everything he does, I love the supernatural/fantasy aspects of the show, I even enjoy the banter between the bad guy and everyone he talks to, lol  I love his warrior soldiers, I love the love story developing between the secondary characters (won't mention them because of spoilers.  Hell, the Kings' Aide doesn't even annoy me that much...wait yeah he does, lol  


And then we have....HER...Collapse )


Can I just say at this point in the drama that the main female character Dr. Yoo Eun-Soo (I am NOT taking about the actress, just the character) is the dumbest, cruelest, most self-centered, most idiotic female lead I've seen in a long time, Korean, Japanese, or Chinese drama included.  I'm shocked at her very less than Dr attitude.  And I understand that the vase thingie was meant to be funny but it just made me see her as greedy.  (I mean come on she brings it back they test it and find out its 2yrs old, give me a break.)  I keep expecting her to ACT like a doctor but she doesn't.  (i.e person faints, gets stabbed, the doctor usually goes right into doctor mode, not her she just stands there and mouths off about how this is effecting her, hey your a freaking doctor, at least throw something on it to stop the blood.

And can I say stupid...very stupid.  General Choi Young deserves someone so much smarter.  Again, this is just my opinion and I'm venting.  I hope she finds a brain somewhere along the way.

Saseang Fans

If I hear one more person say Saseang fans are a result of Cultural differences I think I will scream.

Cultural differences...I'd say.  When was the last time hundreds of fans followed another countries star/idol in a taxi for two days?  When did Justin Bieber fans put up camera's in his home? When was the last time Jamaican fans broke into Rhianna's
 home and took pictures of her sleeping?  When was the last time Adelle's fans lined up by the hundreds to watch her eat in a restaurant?  When was the last time Helene Segara fans wrote a letter to her in period blood?  Hey, when was the last time you spent your life savings on following John Mayer?

If this is a cultural difference, then there is something seriously going wrong in your Cultural.  You don't have one or two lone people stalking these idols like other countries do,  you have hundred's maybe even thousands. Where are these so called "immature fans" (the laws name for them) getting this money to pay for all this?  Where are their families?  Sasaeng fans are out of control in Korea and I've yet to see any law enforcement agencies actually taking any of them seriously. 

Then you have the flip side, sasaeng  fans grabbing idols genitals, breaking into their homes, watching them sleep, and the idol's instant reaction is to defend themselves and suddenly they are the worst human beings in the world.  So-called true fans will take to every fan board to let the world know how despicable they find their idols.  Hey somebody grabs my genitals I'm hauling off and smacking them too.  Why not, you would do the same thing, but this idol who for some reason Asian fans hold above human law, no they are not allowed to.  They have to be better than human, they have to be IDOL's.  Which hey, this doesn't make sense to me.

I think some of these sasaeng fans should have to do some time in jail plus pay large fines for what they are doing.  This "but they are just immature fans" is wrong, you don't break into someone's home due to immaturity, you break into someones home due to stupidity and no education or morals.   I also think some of these management companies should start prosecuting these fans.  If they break the law the Company of said idol should do everything in their power to keep their idols safe.  Are they always going to put the pocketbooks of the fans before their idols?  It's going to happen sooner of later, one day, the true fans are going to pick up the paper or listen to the news to hear that your favorite idol is dead, dead at the hands of a sasaeng fan.  Isn't there anything that can stop this?

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Essential ACTA Resources

  • Follow the history of the treaty’s formation here: ACTA history
  • Read letters from U.S. Senator Ron Wyden wherein he challenges the constitutionality of ACTA: Letter 1 | Letter 2 | Read the Administration’s Response to Wyden’s First Letter here: Response

Say NO to ACTA. It is essential to spread awareness and get the word out on ACTA.

If you are in the US, the only thing I know of is this petition, which requires 25000 signatures in 30 days for any sort of response: https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions#!/petition/end-acta-and-protect-our-right-privacy-internet/MwfSVNBK

There are only 3000 signatures right now.

I don't know what options there are in other countries, but again, for the US, I imagine calling Senators would be a course of action. It worked on the surface for SOPA and PIPA, at least, and it at least sends the message that this is not okay.

If you do, though, [personal profile] opusculus notes that it has been signed already so it is probably worthwhile to mention that you know that and are protesting it anyway.

ETA: this tumblr post has more global resources for how you can protest ACTA.




Half Ass Subbing

Okay, I've been running around and playing on the internet for a long time, since about 1997, but this week, I finally found something that makes me go Huh...WTF??
