Vengo con una entrada musical. Y es que desde hace ya un tiempo que estoy enganchada a la música de Adam Lambert.
Su primer disco me encantó. De hecho, llegue a usar un par de sus canciones en dos de mis videos Brian y Justin.
El 15 del mes que viene se estrena su nuevo disco Tresspasing y estoy contando los dias.
Os voy a dejar aqui un video que recoje un trocito de cada una de las canciones que van a formar parte del album. Aunque falta: Better Than I Know Myself.
Si su primer disco era bueno, con este se supera. Estoy deseando que salga ya a la venta para oirlo al completo.
De momento tengo debilidad por: Never close our eyes, Shady , Naked Love y Better Than I Know Myself.

All U.S. Internet Providers will be policing downloads by July 12, 2012
"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."
The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. I don't know if they will crack down on torrents only, or if it is up to the internet provider. I get the sense it is up to the internet provider. So some people could get away with downloading non torrents, while others might get their internet service cut off. I urge you to click it and read, as we all know people who download.
No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly. I'm so sorry my friends. I don't even know if BT Guard will work to protect you, but I would google it if I were you. It is a professional service that supposedly can protect you from the invasive eyes of your internet provider.
Just, my friends, please make each other aware. Please be aware of the date JULY 12TH. Mark your calendar and double check with your internet provider by then. If you start receiving notices of downloaded activity, this is why. And your internet service could be throttled or cut off.
Fox news confirms this:
Youtube video explaining this:
ETA: Please take a moment and sign the petition for RIAA and the Obama Administration: Stop ISPs from launching a massive copyright spying scheme this July 12th
Just boosting the heads-up...this is insane! My country hasn't signed ACTA so far, but I'm a little wary myself right now. I'm with Neil Gaiman on this shit...
I know I've only found my favorite books...how? By BORROWING them from the library cost-free, or I was lent a book from a friend. I've found my favorite music by listening online. Anything I really love, I want to own the original of as hard copy, and so what do I do? Duh! I go out and buy it. How is this any different? Stupid shits!
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.

*I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.
*I am the person who is afraid of telling his loving Christian parents he loves another male.
*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.
As I said last time, while it's frustrating not to have access, LJ is a lot more than a social network platform. From the article:
"LiveJournal isn’t just a social network. It’s also a platform for organizing civic action. Dozens of network projects and groups mobilize people to solve specific problems — from defending the rights of political prisoners to saving endangered historic architecture in Moscow."
So while I know many are considering the move over to Dreamwidth and other such sites, supporting LJ is a way we can help support those who use it for more than a writing/roleplaying/social venue.
Also, as a FYI, LJ is giving paid users effected by the outage two weeks of paid time as compensation.
Espero que todo bien.
Yo de vuelta por estos lares.
Como os conté mi portátil estaba en las ultimas y antes de ayer mismo se me termino de romper. Ya sabia yo que eso no tenia pinta ser solo el fallo del ventilador. Pero bueno, que se le va a hacer. Lo que se le estropeo fue el microprocesador y para arreglarlo me habria tocado mandarlo a la casa y me iba a salir muy caro. Con lo cual no me merecia la pena.Por lo que me decidí a comprarme uno nuevo.
Ayer me traje a mi "pequeño maquinote" a casa, jeje!! :D
Y ahora aqui ando familiarizandome con el windows7 y con el manejo de todo.
Haber si poco a poco retomo la lectura de algunos fics que me deje a medias y cojo el photoshop y mi programita para los videos... Que menudo monillo que iba teniendo ya.
Nos vemos, wapas :)

It’s been decided. On October 20th, 2010, we will wear purple in honor of the 6 gay boys who committed suicide in recent weeks/months due to homophobic abuse in their homes at at their schools. Purple represents Spirit on the LGBTQ flag and that’s exactly what we’d like all of you to have with you: spirit. Please know that times will get better and that you will meet people who will love you and respect you for who you are, no matter your sexuality. Please wear purple on October 20th. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors and schools.

REBLOG to spread a message of love, unity and peace.
Hace unos dias me encontré en youtube un par de videos de QAF de esos que hacen subir la temperatura hasta niveles insospechados y que no me cansaria de ver ni aunque me los pusiera en plan bucle, jeje!! :P
Asi que, he pensado en dejaroslos en mi casita para compartirlos con vosotras.
Estan creados por xScribbledDreaming y MyLuv4Cook, dos de mis fanvidders favoritas.
Que los disfruteis!!
Hace un rato estaba dandome una vueltecilla por el youtube, mirando haber si habian videos nuevos de qaf y me he encontrado con uno de una de mis fan vidders favoritas: xScribbledDreaming y que me ha llegado al alma.
Ya no solo por la cancion (Temazos los de Sigur ros) sino también por todo el mensaje que transmite. Ya que todas las escenas que han usado hablan sobre la igualdad y que debemos tolerar y respetar a todas las personas sea cual sea su orientacion sexual.Y en esta serie nunca ha faltado momentos reivindicativos sobre esto.
Por eso, GRACIAS QUEER AS FOLK.
Este video sinceramente deberia de verlo todo el mundo.
Asi que... aquí lo teneis:
Besos para todas:**************
PD: Felicitaciones a la creadora por hacer esta maravilla de video.
