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.

Essential ACTA Resources

  • Read more about ACTA here: ACTA Fact Sheet
  • Read the authentic version of the ACTA text as of 15 April 2011, as finalized by participating countries here: ACTA Finalized Text
  • Follow the history of the treaty’s formation here: ACTA history
  • Read letters from U.S. Senator Ron Wyden wherein he challenges the constitutionality of ACTA: Letter 1 | Letter 2 | Read the Administration’s Response to Wyden’s First Letter here: Response
  • Watch a short informative video on ACTA: ACTA Video
  • Watch a lulzy video on ACTA: Lulzy Video

Say NO to ACTA. It is essential to spread awareness and get the word out on ACTA.

Dear Junetide Author or Artist,

I’m a little bit like a magpie – I like shiny things. Therefore I know that I’m going love whatever it is you’ll create for me (can I tell you that I’m really excited? Because I’m really excited). Thank you for writing or making art for me.

When it comes to characters I like clever, pretty and a little broken (favourite television characters include Neal Caffrey, Patrick Jane and Benedict Cumberbatch-Holmes). I love strong female characters, whose lives doesn’t centre on finding a man. I’m not that fond of romance for the sake of romance and would prefer any romance to be subplot and not take up too much story time. But when it comes to romance I’m game for slash and femmeslash. And het, if it’s not very graphic.

I love classical literature and mythology, so getting references to either those things would be awesome. Not necessary, but it would earn you brownie points. I love stories which will make me hurt inside, but prefer happy endings over tragic endings. I have a little quirk where there’s nothing more that I hate than an open ending. I would like it as closed as possible and on at least a hopeful note.

I like fantasy, historical fiction and thrillers. I’m not too fond of the whole crime genre, unless it’s not very conventional, and horror. Maybe a heads up is needed – I hate zombies. Really, honest to god hate them. I have no idea why, because I’ve never watched a zombie film or read a zombie story. They just really creep me out.

I’m looking forward so much to what you’ll create. I know I’ll like it.

Thank you,

Cassie

A Decision

After some careful consideration for over a year now, I've decided to make my journal friends only.

Some entries, like story and amigurumi posts, will stay public.

I have a public blog in Swedish here.
kurainokoori: (Default)

Name: Mr Skeleton
Height: 7 cm (3 inches)
I used: White and black acrylic yarn, crocheting needle 2½ mm (circa 0.1 inches), child-proof eyes 9mm (0.35 inches)
Pattern: Skeleton Groom from Creepy Cute Crochet by Christen Haden
Finished: June 2011
kurainokoori: (Default)

So, I've built up quite an archive with news articles and blog entries that are quite interesting to read. I'm going to place a few that have content that could be triggering behind a cut (particularly one that discusses a study that examined whether or not people could tell the difference between what a men's magazine writes and the statements made by rapists). That one might be particularly upsetting if you're a rape survivor.

Margaret Cho Rightfully Loses Her Shit
Margaret Cho posted pictures of her new tattoo on her butt. The response was overwhelmingly positive, but two people reacted negatively and she lost her shit on them. As a former bullying victim, I say that she rightfully did. It's not okay to go after people and say derogatory things about them online. You're not as anonymous as you think.

Confessions of a Recovering Homophobe
Maybe a little too short. It would have been more interesting to read the process to come to the end. I recommend following the link to LetLoveReign.org. The images are beautiful.

Schrödinger's rapist or a guy's guide to approaching strange women without being maced
This one is quite old and most of you probably has read it before, but it should be read often. It should be obligatory reading. I wonder if men are aware of just how creepy they can be when they approach women? Or maybe I just have the worst luck in the world and get the all creeps.

Can a Man Be a Feminist? My Personal Journey into Male Feminism
"I can know about it [feminism], I can practice it, and I can live it every single day, but the fact of the matter is that feminism is going to be different for men and women, and men will never understand how important feminism is in the same way a woman would."

A Message to Women From a Man: You Are Not "Crazy"
About emotional manipulation.

kurainokoori: (dreamer)

It's been one of those days when I've had no lectures and instead spent eight hours reading. I've got around to reading ten chapters today (let's ignore that nine of those were in a tiny book and averaged in length with three pages).

I just realised that I just stopped posting pictures of my amigurumi. Whoops?

This one's called Cilla and I made her back in May.


I crocheted this one the same week as Busmusen and it was a birthday gift for my grandpa. She's made to look like their dog, Cilla.

I've decided to give up this challenge and just use the table as a prompt table to complete at my leisure. I'm so far behind and life is difficult, so I don't think I'll be able to catch up. Or have the motivation to do so. Life is rather difficult at the moment.

I have a confession - sometimes I don't bother to enlarge the image prompts. It means that I write about what I think I see instead of what the pictures actually show.

Yesterday is better left forgotten. Not the best of days, I'm afraid.

Today has been rather stressful, because we're celebrating my sister's and grandma's birthday later today. Grandma's present wasn't entirely done this morning, but I finished it by noon. She's getting an amigurumi. And I need to apply for jobs and e-mail my handler at the job agency and apply for student aid and other stuff that makes me flail around in panic.

Thought I'd show off another one of my creations :) Let me introduce you to Busmusen.


I made this for my mum as a mother's day gift back in May. The pattern is from Virka Amigurumi by Mia Bengtsson, but I re-worked it a little to make the mouse slightly bigger than it would have otherwise turned out. My mum adores it and named it Busmusen (Mischievous Mouse).

I was so excited that I couldn't sleep and spent yesterday more resembling a zombie than a human being.

It really makes me sad to see that notemeetsletter has been removed :(

kurainokoori: (dreamer)
Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] awry, for the virtual gift :)

I had an awesome intro text planned to this entry, but I forgot it on the way here. I've been on an emotional roller coaster drive today - gone from happy to serious frustration to downright anger. Frustration due to people not locking ads for jobs that they don't take applications for. Anger because if you're placing an ad for people, can't you make sure the e-mail is correct?

But what I had planned to do today was to reveal my Merlin-amigurumi :) He’s made from the same pattern as Misaki and the jacket is made from a pattern from the book Virka amigurumi by Mia Bengtsson

I’m really proud of him ^^

This is 50/50 Darlene-verse and Maja-verse (though they crossover at one point).

I'm so far behind on this that it isn't funny D: I need to write another 13 drabbles to be up to speed (I have three finished in my unpublished folder). Better get to writing, eh?

Since my brain's melting out through my ears due to the sweltering summer heat, I thought I'd share a couple of pictures of an amigurumi I made in May. Her name is Misaki (ironically that means deep red in Japanese and most of her details are green). She's made from a pattern called Harajuku girl (from the book Virka roliga amigurumi! by Mia Bengtsson) and I've done only the slightest customisation.

I think she deserves the 'aaaw' tag :)

Next up is Merlin. I'm so proud of that one :)

kurainokoori: (kitten)
I've gone from updating this thing regularly to being rather sporadic. The truth is, I've been feeling rather low the last couple of weeks. It might be because my sister's in Germany, but it also might be because this kind of life is taking it's toll on me. People often imagine that it's easy being unemployed and that you have time for yourself. The truth is that you're constantly on edge, waiting for the phone to ring. You have to always be available. And it's stressful.

This week the acceptance letters will be sent out. It's rather do or die, because I'm not sure I can take another year of this.

But I don't want to write about it. So, instead, meet Sessan, you guys. 

She's a kitty, if you can't tell. The kitty in my pattern book was black, but I wanted to do a white one. Since I was ordering the eyes for my Merlin figures (Merlin is done; I might upload pictures of him this week), I ordered blue eyes and pink noses. The noses turned out to be bigger than I expected; hopefully it works, though.

Her name is derived from the Swedish word 'prinsessan' (the princess) and my grandpa uses it as a cutesy nickname for me. But the real reason she's named this, is because my mum had a white cat with blue eyes when she was younger. I grew up with stories about this cat, so I felt it was kind of fitting.

Next time I post an amigurumi pic, it'll be Misaki - my harajuku girl :)

ps. If you haven't seen Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, you should. I watched it yesterday and it's very entertaining. If the Jim Carey scares you, think of the Meryl Streep and the Billy Conolly (I thought he was great in this one and Garfield 2). The wonderful Jane Lynch has a short cameo and Emily Browning had a better role in this movie than her latest film Sucker Punch. My opinion on Sucker Punch is that it's a fifteen-year old gamer's misogynist sex fantasy.

Long story, short: it's funny, it's clever and the cast is superb.
