Now that I'm a little bit awake, here's this week's happy list in an attempt to brighten my Monday. (Hopefully something here will brighten yours, too.)

1. Orange chicken leftovers heated up for breakfast = yum.

2. Stylish: Advanced Style is getting attention at Tumblr.

3. Silly: Otters who look like Benedict Cumberbatch is getting attention at Tumblr and trending at Twitter.

4. I got some good quality sleep last night instead of fitful dozing.

5. Finished one of my geek shirts and am about halfway through the other. (I'm not sure how many people will get either of them, to be honest, but I like them, and that's good enough for me.)

6. Did my first beta reading job in three years. It feels good to get back in the saddle.

Go forth and shake your booties, friends:

It's still Black March.  Do not go to the movies, buy DVDs, CDs, books, magazines, newspapers or download any purchased songs in the month of March.  Want to see Hunger Games?  Me too.  Wait one more week and see it Sunday April 1st if you're serious about taking a stand against this.  Watch my previous post of Part 4 of Everything is a Remix.  This copy write fuckery is covered in that video.

(this is an edited version of [livejournal.com profile] lk737's post here)

According to this article, dated March 15, 2012:
http://www.digitaltrends.com/webnews/major-isps-turn-into-copyright-police-by-july-says-riaa/

"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. No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly.

Fox news confirms this:
