Well. Yahoo is buying tumblr--apparently it's a done deal and the announcement will be tomorrow. The article I read said tumblr will operate as an "independant website". I just LOVE all the people on the tumblr tag saying this isn't going to change anything, tumblr will still be the same. hahahahahahahahaha <--bitter laughter. Okay, been through this shit before (hello, LJ) and honestly. Yahoo is going to spend a billion dollars and not do anything to get that money back. Yeah, sure, kids, tell yourselves what you need to sleep at night. That added to the fact that pretty much anything Yahoo touches DIES. Tumblr wasn't perfect, but I could deal with it most days... maybe I'll be wrong, but I'm too old and jaded to put any faith that we aren't gonna be fucked over. I wonder where folks will go now?

Margaret Thatcher has died. I knew of her, of course, being a child/teen during her years in office, but didn't realise just how badly she'd fucked the UK over nor her enduring legacy.

A legacy I feel has come down to many in the western world today; I can see it in the US republicans and in our own Conservative gov't here in Canada. (I'm sorry, they are not MY gov't; I have not and will never vote for them.) Hell, Brian Mulroney was an early disciple of hers. Protect the rich and fuck the poor. And do it all off the backs of the middle class.

Annette Funicello died today as well. She was an original Disney Mouseketeer and also starred in the beach movies with Frankie Avalon. From all accounts she was a very nice person.

I also found out today that Winston Rekert died in September(!!) from cancer. He was a Canadian actor and I enjoyed him in both Adderly and Neon Rider. He was only 63. :(

Yeah. Not a happy day.

http://www.etonline.com/tv/126267_Criminal_Minds_Creator_Reid_Was_Supposed_to_Be_Bi_Sexual/
According to this quick bit, the creator of CM, Jeff Davis, had planned Reid to be bisexual.

Although how his having a crush on JJ would stop that storyline, I'm not really sure, perhaps the "push" from the execs. Of course, iirc, Davis wasn't actually involved much beyond the creation of the show, so.... *shrug*

Anyhow, it's now my mental canon. :D

Since I've sorta lost the LJ love... Not totally leaving, but yeah, it just doesn't seem the same, I'd thought I'd sticky post other places that I hang out.

Fannish stuff (a lot of Top Gear/James May) on tumblr: http://slash-girl.tumblr.com/
Fanfic page on AO3 (I'll also post my fic here, too): http://archiveofourown.org/users/slashgirl
Twitter, infrequently updated: https://twitter.com/slashgirl (feel free to follow me)
Blogger, for work related stuff, including ranting and I'm trying not to have it too connected with fannish stuff: http://slashgirl71.blogspot.ca/
Oh, and I am on dreamwidth but tbh, use it less than LJ: http://slashgirl.dreamwidth.org/
I am on fb, but that's mostly for me to keep up with the family....

I think that's pretty much it.... I do miss the old days of LJ. Now, it really feels like a ghost town. :(

There, I'm not paying for LJ anymore and as of 10 Sep it'll go back to whatever unpaid is. I think I mostly lose my icons. But I hardly use LJ now and don't see the need to pay for it. Plus, money's tight now with reduced work hours and whatnot.

I'm not leaving LJ...no more so than I already have.

There is a website called Texts from last night and it's just as advertised on the tin. Sometimes funny, sometimes eyebrow raising (at least for me) but often funny... anyhow, on tumblr, there are comms for texts from last night for just about every show/fandom. It entails finding a pic that matches or illustrates a particular text. I do a LOT of these in top gear (cus, god help them...the boys illustrate far too many things...). Anyhow, saw this text and immediately thought of Thomas Gibson in Psycho Beach Party...and I'm sharing it here for the TG (uh, that's Thomas Gibson, not Top Gear. *sigh*) fans on my flist.

We'll get rid of Prentiss. Paget Brewster is quitting at the end of this season is up, when her contract is done. Yay! After her attitude when she was forced back on the show, I'm not surprised.

But given that I haven't watched beyond the first couple eps this season--I have to wonder if the show is too far gone to save now.

Hmm, Ed's gone so maybe they could bring Elle back. THAT would be awesome. Or maybe Seaver. Hahaha. It'll be interesting to see what happens.

Oh, and big Fuck YOU to all the people saying Criminal Minds should end because she's leaving. They survived quite well without her the first time and will be even better this time around.

A timely and poignant reminder from Terry Kelly:


Story of the vid:
"On November 11, 1999 Terry Kelly was in a drug store in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. At 10:55 AM an announcement came over the stores PA asking customers who would still be on the premises at 11:00 AM to give two minutes of silence in respect to the veterans who have sacrificed so much for us.

Terry was impressed with the stores leadership role in adopting the Legions two minutes of silence initiative. He felt that the stores contribution of educating the public to the importance of remembering was commendable.

When eleven oclock arrived on that day, an announcement was again made asking for the two minutes of silence to commence. All customers, with the exception of a man who was accompanied by his young child, showed their respect.

Terrys anger towards the father for trying to engage the stores clerk in conversation and for setting a bad example for his child was channeled into a beautiful piece of work called, A Pittance of Time. Terry later recorded A Pittance of Time and included it on his full-length music CD, The Power of the Dream.

Thank You to the Royal Canadian Legion Todmorden Branch #10 and Woodbine Height Branch #2 for their participation in the Video.

Please visit www.terry-kelly.com"

Cus crazycakes bitch is back. And it's never any fun.

But I do lurve that Hotch's love interest is not and never will be Prentiss. And can I say I'm amused to hear (thru the grapevine) that some of the Hotch Prentiss fans are threatening to boycott the show? That made me laugh my ass off. Hate to tell you this folks, but nobody cares if you're not a neilsen family. Besides. Hotch has way better taste than ms. thang.

In other news, I'm pretty much hanging out on tumblr these days--get my fic fixes here or at AOO. I'm still base over apex for James May, have a huge, non-sexual love for Stephen Fry (he is so awesome and brilliant), adore both Alan Davies and Phill Jupitus and think Noel Fielding is cute and possibly cuddly.

Work is still work, nothing mind blowingly dumb going on lately but I'm sure that will change.

And trusting people is still dangerous.

I haven't watched it yet--am going to d/l it at work when I get there. (It fucking takes 3 minutes or less during not peak times. Yes, that's THREE minutes.) Then I may watch it. Maybe.

I'll be honest, I'm leery of watching it because I have a gut feeling that whatever happens in this ep is going to make me hate CM with the heat of a million fiery suns (or they'll jump the shark). I mean, they've brought Prentiss back--that's worth half a million, right there. Worst thing ever. I'd rather have Gideon back--at least that would be interesting--especially seeing him interact with Rossi. *heh* I am happy that JJ is back, cus at least SHE is cool. And kick ass. :D

This is the first time I haven't watched the broadcast of a CM season premiere. *sigh*
