New round of experimental chemo for my dad. I don't know how to think anymore. I just hope for miracles.

New DW, sparlkebutch, but it's a placeholder. I still post on my usual one.

New swoon crush: I'm doing what all the trendy little girls did in 1964. I'm into the boys from u.n.c.l.e. Also Albert.

Join [ profile] fandom_counts.

I'm pretty sure all of you who read this are fen and proud of it. Join the comm. Be counted. We are a power, and we should not hide.

ETA: however, as a member of quite a few groups all of which hunted in the past, plus as a person who watched Monty Python in their life, I know that when you stand up and get counted, the people with the machine guns cut you down. Also I know that putting your name on a list makes you a target.

I do it anyway. I do it anyway because the worst they can do to me is shut my journal, and boohoo, I don't think anyone will miss that. I went there and listed this lj, and when I have time in a couple of hours I will make aaaallll my other ljs (and comms if I can) join it.

Regarding the Supernannies thing discussed lately... [ profile] ceruleancat and I were mocking the choice of words.

"So, Mary Poppins vs. Superman?"

"Mary would totally win. Clark has strange mommy issues, he'd just roll over."

We walk, we talk....

"What about, vs. Batman?"

"That guy sends his family to fight... He'd send ALFRED! And then Alfred and Mary would get married and live happily ever after, and Bruce will have to stop whining about the parent figures, that would be so cute. Oh, and Dick would move back into the cave just to have the fluff. Hell, Tim would enjoy the parentals. And Jason, he'll just come back from the dead and return to the cave for cookies. No, really."

Good thing we're not huge on Marvel or the Hulk would happen next.

I haven't posted about it so far. I guess I hoped it would all go away.

It didn't.

The Gay Pride Parade, already cancelled several times for various excuses (yes, excuses, not reasons), is going to be this Friday. There are people rioting, setting things on fire, throwing rocks at drivers and at cops. They threaten to murder and abuse all gay people who will march in the parade. Last year three people were stabbed. This year, there will be more protest, and more armed maniacs.

This is hardly mentioned in the world news. Here's one link with several sub-links on the same page. (thanks, [ profile] medelle)

This is a war; we fight for our right to live, to live openly, to live happily.

Tell that to all your friends. Yell it from the rooftops.

Don't let this be the norm.

Seems that David E Kelley is doing an American version of Life On Mars.

The veil is indeed thin, and creepy things crawl from the other side of it.

I don't know why I bothered to check official news sites and babble to my uninterested friends about Top Gear, when I could have just - Reminder to self: - CHECK ALL THE LJ COMMS!

The LJ comms where the fandom lives and thrives, and collects news and articles and interviews. And thanks to [ profile] elfinessy. I shall now gallop along in search of knowledge.

Richard Hammond was hurt in a crash yesterday but he is making "satisfactory progress" now.

ETA: Jeremy says: "Both James and I are looking forward to getting our Hamster back."
