I stole this from [livejournal.com profile] pervyficgirl because I felt the need to signal boost, even if I don't do it often.

Well, there goes my good mood for the day.

NYTimes, the bastion of quality reporting, reported on the gang-rape of an 11 year-old girl in Texas  that's led to charges against 18 high-school boys so far - all well and good so far, right?  Shit like this NEEDS publicity to raise awareness. 

Only problem is, they repeated - without refutation or critical commentary - the claims that the girl brought the rape on herself because of the way she was dressed.

Choice Quotes (No cut b/c everyone needs to see this - DEAL.):

“It’s just destroyed our community,” said Sheila Harrison, 48, a hospital worker who says she knows several of the defendants. “These boys have to live with this the rest of their lives.  As opposed to the victim, who's gonna bounce back lickety-fucking-split, right?

Residents in the neighborhood where the abandoned trailer stands — known as the Quarters — said the victim had been visiting various friends there for months. They said she dressed older than her age, wearing makeup and fashions more appropriate to a woman in her 20s. She would hang out with teenage boys at a playground, some said.  TOTALLY BEGGING FOR IT.

THIS IS RAPE CULTURE, PEOPLE.

Now, what's being said and done in this community is bad enough, but the NY Times should be fucking ashamed of themselves right now.

Here's how to contact NYT: )

Uhhh, I had this WEIRD dream this morning. Until just now, I think my brain was still thinking it was real. Oh man. Paranoia does not help.

So, apparently there's this lady on the phone with the mama. Some important thing having to do with school and my school money. And all you should have a JOB during the school year, and you're a TERRIBLE person because you DON'T. Pffft, and me being me took the phone and bitched out the lady about my five classes this semester, and fuck her, because I CAN'T get a job while in Rome since my Italian just isn't that fucking proficient, and REAL Italians would laugh at me.

...she had some snappy, bureaucratic comeback which forced me to hand the phone back to mama who is not a bitch like me. ...usually, anyways. Then I think I woke up, and I don't think this whatever the hell this was really left my mind. Noooow, I'm all paranoid. Lovely. *goes to crawl in a hole and finish her applications*

EDIT: YES! One of my teachers sent in the recommendation. Thank god. Now, just waiting on my last Italian teacher. *sigh of relief*

Wtf, body?

I just woke up with a massive nose bleed. Like a lot of blood 'cause I thought it was just a runny nose until I saw it wasn't stopping and my hand blood all over. Ugh. Quit rebelling, right now, body! Now, I can't get back to sleep. Fuck.

Also, appropriate icon is waaaaaaaaaay appropriate. @_@

I'm reading a chapter by chapter review/summary of the Twilight series. It has confirmed my suspicions of this being nothing but absolute garbage and work of fanfiction. She has no plot (which, I can't reprimand her for because I never do either), but it makes me angry that she can't write dialogue OR characterization.

Fuck plot. Dialogue and characterization are the things I pretty much WRITE for. I don't write because I love a world; I write because I love the damned characters and what they do with the world they're in. And you know, why can she make so much money writing when I can write better than she can? At least I know how to us characterization and dialogue. Maybe I fail at plot, but clearly, plot means nothing in this world anymore.

So yeah. I wanna write a book. Placing bets on how long that'll last with my attention sp- Oooh, a butterfly! *wanders off*

Added a bunch of Robins to my store (and some Captain America).

Also, the Timmy 'clix are fucking ninjas. I am not kidding. First, one got misplaced for an order (which has NEVER happened before), then I order four more so I can send one for the order and have extras, but then one of those don't come and I get a refund for one Timmy 'clix.

I get the 3 Timmys, I'm taking 'em off the stands, and the third one WON'T COME OFF THE STAND, I stab myself trying to get it off with the needle tool I use, and Timmy goes flying stand and all. After a staunch the bleeding, I look around and can't find the damn thing. Ninja Timmy. Doesn't help that he's OYL Timmy so all in his black cape and emo. Little bitch.

I did end up finding him blending in with the shadows this morning. FINALLY got him off the stand. I so hate Timmys right now. @_@
shinyglorchan: (I prefer Robins myself...)
Why am I writing this? I don't want to write this. This is like...a terrible idea. But I'm almost 200 words in, and I'm doomed. ;-; Do Not Want. If I finish it tonight, it will be my pornday entry, and everyone will think I was replaced by a pod person and should be shot. @_@

*sigh*

Well, my trust in Winick is probably broken. Not as badly as BftC since I don't trust writers that well in comics, but read this. *sigh* That lead to this letter I plan to send to DC Comics. Tell me if I need to add anything or up my diction or something. (Also, misplaced the address, if someone'd help me ouy with that, it'd be great.)

EDIT: I added a bit more. I'm thinking about mentioning the Robin arc before BftC since Jason's personality took a turn from grudgingly talking to Tim then BftC. :/


Dear DC Comics... )

Huh, I didn't post for three days straight. That's strange for me. I was just that fucking lazy this week. Did I even make a post about how fucking awesome the Red Hood movie was? I don't think I did. *sigh* Take my poll for my store. I have shit load of new Marvel and DC shit.

[Poll #1593007]

And Bek's coming over in a few hours, so don't expect any more posts until Saturday night. Aren't you all excited? You didn't get spammed by me this week!

Holy fuck. If Spain wins, I'll be freaked out. STOP PREDICTING GAMES, YOU FREAKY OCTOPUS ORACLE FROM GERMANY! >>;; Such a creepy little thing. ...but I think I need a Octopus Oracle icon. >>;;;



And SUPER SADFACE, it's the SUCKY ESPN guys as the commentators. They're so damned BORING. I like Ian Darke and John Harkes. Not just because they sound so gay together. They make the game more amusing! *sigh*
shinyglorchan: (Default)
So, woke up in time for the first goal in the Germany vs England. I'm so used to England being white, that them being red hurts my brain. >>;; So, Germany made the first goal. That was pretty sad defense, England. :/

And hey, Mr. Ref, you made England lose the ball by standing in the wrong place. *shakes head*

EDIT: Oh man. England got two goals after Germany got two, but damn. The second didn't count because it bounced out, and they couldn't tell it went in. :/

So, apparently 1966 is repeating itself? And fuck, FIFA, start using electronics! That ball was in, and the refs couldn't see that from their angle. Argh.

EDIT 2: Dear England, where the HELL is your defense? WHERE? What? 4-1 Germany! *sigh* I don't care which way it goes, but damn! England's defense would make little preteen soccer players cry. >>;;

Oh USA. IT WAS FIVE FUCKING MINUTES IN! Seriously? Ghana hadn't gotten a goal outside of penalty kicks so far, and they got a goal? *sigh* I need a new team to root for. I just went for USA because I live here, and Italy's out. *sigh* I was going for South Africa, and they lost depressingly too. *sigh*

EDIT: *sigh* They lost. Every team I go for loses. I wanted Italy to win, South Africa, South Korea... >>;; I'm a jinx? D:

Mom was watching Mexico vs Uruguay, but then we switched to France vs South Africa. France conceded a goal 20 minutes in, and there's been a red card for France. Add in the loss of a striker and they weren't practicing Sunday.

Tshabalala, go! <3 They need a bunch of goals to get through. I hope they do. <3 They can, can't they? Damn you, ESPN, you bastards. Shut the fuck up. I think I may need to start watching in Spanish. And- GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! :D They got a second one, and it's not half time yet! They can do it! They can! I hope! <3

AHH! Almost got a THIRD! Stupid offside flag. Bah.

EDIT: *sigh* South Africa's now the first country not to get to the next stage. They did win, though.
shinyglorchan: (Awed and Kissed)
Go, Italy, go! YOU CAN BEAT NEW ZEALAND! Okay, there's a Cannavaro commercial, and it is tasty. <3

EDIT: NO! NO! NOOOOOO! SIX MINUTE IN AND NEW ZEALAND GOT A GOAL IN! *SOBS* THIS WOULDN'T HAVE HAPPENED IF BUFFON WASN'T HURT! *CRIES IN A CORNER*

EDIT 2: DELICIOUS PENALTY KICK WAS DELICIOUS! MMM, IAQUINTA! :D *happy dance*

EDIT 3: Halftime and the story? France being children. Yesterday, one of their strikers cursed out the coach, and the coach sent him home. Old news. New news? The team won't practice today. What. The. Hell. Are they stupid? You are at the fucking WORLD CUP. It only happens every FOUR years. Some of you may NEVER have this chance again. Stop being fucking CHILDREN. *shakes her head*

ALSO, I JUST NOTICED! With France falling apart at the seams, South Africa could make a comeback! They got royally screwed and need to beat France with like 3 or 4 goals in the net. With France not practicing and not getting along with the coach and missing a striker? This is great! :D I really want SA to get through. <3

EDIT 4: ...it ended a tie, but if Italy loses or ties again next time, I think they're out. They WILL get pelted with rotten fruit and veggies when they get home. Why are ALL the GOOD teams sucking? England, Italy, France... Even Brazil had problems with North Korea! Spain lost to Switzerland! This is getting ridiculous! Germany did poorly after the first game, I hear, too. @_@

Also, Father's Day sucks. I hope my dad is having coronary over the Italy team doing so poorly. Hmph.

I have decide I want an AU with Jason Todd as a soccer player. Mmm, those thighs and he's tall. International players are mostly 6 foot at least at this point. Om nom nom. Maybe Dick can be one too, and Tim can be their fanboy. XD Delicious.

What?

USA is the favorite in a soccer game? What? Poor Slovenia is tiny. Slovenia's the size of New Jersey, population of Houston, and only existed as its own country for 19 years next week, so says the ESPN dudes. BUT they beat Russia to get in, so I don't think size matters. XD

...wait, 16 seconds in, and we get an injury. Oh fail. >>;;

EDIT: Oh why did they have to call USA the favorite? That just screws 'em up. XD Under 15 minutes and Slovenia made a goal. Howard didn't even SEE it.

...also, apparently, Gianluigi Buffon called the Slovenia goalie the best in Europe. And considering I think Buffon is the best... USA is doomed. ...I'm kinda rooting for Slovenia because they're the underdog? >>;; I'm a bad American, oops.

EDIT 2: Oh man, and USA makes a goal back from halftime. It was kinda amazing. Landon Donovan shot that ball at a terrible angle and got it in. Gotta admire that.

EDIT 3: Is it just me or is the ref a crazy fuck? Like, yeah, no red cards, but the amount of yellow cards! Fucking hell. There's been five of them, maybe? What the fuck.

EDIT 4: Holy fuck. They tied it up. Apparently the son of their coach made the goal? Huh, USA. Huh. The guy is all bald and Lex Luthor-y looking. >>;;

EDIT 5: WHAT THE HELL. DRUGS, THE REF IS ON DRUGS! THERE WAS NO OFFSIDE AND THAT BALL WENT IN! And dammit, that could have been a penalty kick for USA with all the holding people down! What. The. Fuck. That ref is a crazy fuck.
shinyglorchan: (Aquaman!Craig)
Holy fuck, Batman! I didn't watch it (gonna watch it now), but Germany like RAPED Australia. When I say raped, I mean RAPED. The game ended 4-0. I'm so glad Italy isn't in that Group. Hell, if USA had been in Australia's place? That rape probably would have been WORSE.

...then again, USA seems to get these lucky goals from when the other team fucks up. Last World Cup, Italy scored on themselves versus USA (Italy still won, duh), and England vs USA this year, the goalie fucked up badly. Actually, haven't seen it, but hell, I posted the lego version of it yesterday. I think that's all that's needed. XD Mom said that's exactly what it looked like when I let her watch it.

Also, daaaaaaamn, Spain. You lost to Switzerland! You were a favorite! Man, the Swiss goalie? Fucking ace, man. He was amazing. And Spain? They had a goal, but it bounced out and never hit the back of the net. Ow. That was some kind of ow. And the goal Switzerland made was fucking amazing.

And South Africa's playing again at 2pm. Gonna watch it then probably make a recap. Are you getting sick of my soccer obsessing yet? XD

ARGH!

Son of a bitch. It'd halftime, and Paraguay got a goal on Buffon. Fuck. Italy, you lose, I will cry. CRY. What will there be to watch for? Maybe Japan? Pffft, USA? They got real fucking lucky with theirs, like always. FORZA L'AZZURRI! *will throw things, dammit*

EDIT: FUCK YEAH, TIED. TAKE THAT, PARAGUAY! BUT THEY TOOK OUT BUFFON! D: MY GOALIE! D:

Trying to fix the FAFSA thing again today. I've been attempting all week. I have my pin, my social, and all the shit I need, but it keeps telling me there were no matches. What. The. Fuck!? Argh, I'm about to start another one, but that might be stupid. Just argh. D:

And if I end up with no money because it's too late, and all this is for naught, I shall be very, very cross.

Oh, and I went to sleep early-ish, but I woke up in the middle of the night. *sigh* I guess I'll have to put the AC in the window this year. It's terribly hot, and that's probably why I can't sleep. And I swear to god, if I get lightning bugs in my room this year, I will pitch a fit all of you will hear from wherever the fuck you are in the world. >:O

...fucking FAFSA. So apparently, I was missing my mom's signature. Why didn't it just tell me it was incomplete? Why did it let me send it without that signature!? Fuckers. I forgot about the signature! I love my mom, but she's completely useless when it comes to the computer or important papers. Needing to use her to just sign shit is such a fucking pain in my ass.

Oh and to add to this? Once I figure out I need her, today she's working late. Fucking perfect. Argh!

Oh god...

Dear brain,

I hate you, just a bit. No, Girlfriend by Avril Lavigne is NOT the perfect early on Steph song. ...'cept in all the ways it IS. Oh god, why do you do this to me, brain?

Also, the confused look Tim is sporting in my mood icon? That is the look this song would make have. ...no, I don't think that's funny...'cept I do. Dammit.

"Hey! Hey! You! You!
I don’t like your girlfriend!
No way! No way!
I think you need a new one
Hey! Hey! You! You!
I could be your girlfriend"

...argh.

No love,
Gloria

P.S. Making a fanmix for Steph's month IS a good idea. Thanks for that.
