meme from Emma:
"Ask me to take pictures of any aspect of my life that you're interested in/curious about -- it can be anything from my favorite shirt to my books or my home. Leave your request as a comment to this entry, I'll snap the pictures and post them in a post. That way, you get to know a little bit about my life."


also nothing has really been going on. I WORK AT THE LIBRARY, SOMETIMES (NOT OFTEN ENOUGH) I GET TO GO SEE SHEA. I ACTUALLY DO THINGS ON FACEBOOK SO IF YOU DON'T HAVE ME THERE YOU SHOULD ADD ME.

Comment with the name of a character, pairing, etc., in one of my fandoms/fandom we share. I'll post you an "instant" mini-fanmix: a cover and 3-5 songs that remind me of that character/pairing/show/etc. I'll upload the songs and everything!

COMMENT, I NEED SOMETHING TO DO. SERIOUSLY, PLEASE.

HOWEVER I CANNOT PROMISE COVERS BECAUSE MY MOST ADVANCED PROGRAM RIGHT NOW IS GIMP AND WE HAVE A TENUOUS AT BEST RELATIONSHIP.


guys I started playing Minecraft last night. it is ridiculous and totally worth the $20. also I have gotten lost twice in the same cavern on one game and had to DIG MY WAY UP TO THE WATER AND SWIM HOME ;________________; since the second time I have not revisited that cavern. :|

also I am playing it on peaceful mode because I am a wimp. 8| whatever I am just having fun building shit. It is hard enough not getting lost without having monsters to worry about too!


uhmr. I wanted to make some introspective post about Anxieties and Neuroses and Lack Of Self-Confidence and other such Issues but I really don't even feel like typing it out tonight. derpppppp.

If you are reading this right now, you have more luxury than someone in Iran could ever hope for right now. If you are watching TV or a video on youtube, updating your status on Facebook, Tweeting, or even texting your friend, you are lucky. If you are safe in your home, and were able to sleep last night without the sounds of screaming from the rooftops, you need to know and understand what is happening to people just like you in Iran right now.



They are not the enemy. They are a people whose election has been stolen. For the first time in a long time, a voice for change struck the youth of Iran, just as it did for many people in the United States only seven months ago. Hossein Mousavi gained the support of millions of people in Iran as a Presidential candidate. He stands for progressiveness. He supports good relations with the West, and the rest of the world. He is supported with fervor as he challenges the oppressive regime of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

On Friday, millions of people waited for hours in line to vote in Iran's Presidential election. Later that night, as votes came in, Mousavi was alerted that he was winning by a two-thirds margin. Then there was a change. Suddenly, it was Ahmadinejad who had 68% of the vote - in areas which have been firmly against his political party, he overwhelmingly won. Within three hours, millions of votes were supposedly counted - the victor was Ahmadinejad. Immediately fraud was suspected - there was no way he could have won by this great a margin with such oppposition. Since then, reports have been coming in of burned ballots, or in some cases numbers being given without any being counted at all. None of this is confirmed, but what happened next seems to do the trick.



The people of Iran took the streets and rooftops. They shout "Death to the dictator" and "Allah o akbar." They join together to protest. Peacefully. The police attack some, but they stay strong. Riots happen, and the shouting continues all night. Text messaging was disabled, as was satellite, and websites which can spread information such as Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, and the BBC are blocked in the country. At five in the morning, Arabic speaking soldiers (the people of Iran speak Farsi) stormed a university in the capital city of Tehran. While sleeping in their dormitories, five students were killed. Others were wounded. These soldiers are thought to have been brought in by Ahmadinejad from Lebanon. Today, 192 of the university's faculty have resigned in protest.

Mousavi requested that the government allow a peaceful rally to occur this morning - the request was denied. Many thought that it would not happen. Nevertheless, first a few thousand people showed up in the streets of Tehran. At this point, it is estimated that 1 to 2 million people were there. Mousavi spoke on the top of a car. The police stood by. For a few hours, everything was peaceful. Right now, the same cannot be said. Reports of injuries, shootings, and killings are flooding the internet. Twitter has been an invaluable source - those in Iran who still know how to access it are updating regularly with picture evidence. People are being brutally beaten. Tonight will be another night without rest for so many in Iran no older than I am. Tonight there is a Green Revolution.
