This weekend - don't forget:

Puerto Rico is still hurting, the US Virgin Islands are still hurting. People are without power, without water, without food, without medicine.

Lin-Manuel Miranda made this thing:



Can be bought on iTunes etc.. Proceeds go to https://hispanicfederation.org/unidos/

This bit from the info says it all, I think: "Vocals Performed by Marc Anthony, Ruben Blades, Camila Cabello, Pedro Capo, Dessa, Gloria Estefan, Fat Joe, Luis Fonsi, Juan Luis Guerra, Alex Lacamoire, John Leguizamo, Jennifer Lopez, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Rita Moreno, Ednita Nazario, Joell Ortiz, Anthony Ramos, Gina Rodriguez, Gilberto Santa Rosa, PJ Sin Suela, Tommy Torres, Ana Villafañe."

LMM talks about the song (and stands by his Tweets at Trump):

So... hi?

I'm not that active at LJ/DW anymore besides my mod duties for [community profile] rounds_of_kink/[livejournal.com profile] rounds_of_kink, and we're getting ready to have the Halloween Mini-Round!! Come and check out the prompts for the round!

And since it's Friday, I thought I'd participate in [community profile] thefridayfive


1. What book frightened you as a young person?
2. If you had to become a ‘living book (i.e. able to recite the contents of a book cover to cover upon request – reference Fahrenheit 451), what book would it be?
3. What movie or TV show scared you as a kid?
4. What movie (scary or otherwise) will you never ever watch?
5. Do you have any phobias?

answers under here )

*headdesk* LJ...

So... the LJ TOS is interesting. Noticed more people bailing to DW.

I believe I will continue to do what I do until they decide to cut me off at LJ. I just can't bring myself to let go of LJ yet - it's been 12 years of my life and I just can't. But seriously, they make me sad when they do shit like this :(

I will continue to crosspost here and will become more proactive on DW.

I will continue to mirror all my comms onto DW just in case.

If you prefer DW over LJ, I will make sure to comment there for you :) If you want to participate in my comms only on DW, that is totally cool with me!



ETA:

You can find me at the same name on Dreamwidth, Insane Journal, Twitter, Tumblr (although I'm not active here much)

This is how I feel. Steve Schmidt just articulates it better than I would. Growing up, listening to the two parties define and debate their issues is how I made decisions, how I discovered which candidate I would vote for in the election. I lean Democrat, but I have voted for Republicans when their issues and standings are something that I agree with. Of course, I live in a state that is mostly Republican and conservative, but we still have moderate Democrats that we elect (our governor and I believe our next governor will be).

It's sad to know that the Republican party is losing itself (and has been for a while), but especially as exemplified in this presidential campaign. It's horrific. America needs two thriving parties with ideas that can be presented for us to vote on. America needs citizens who take the time to learn issues and vote accordingly. I have hope we can get there.



STEVE SCHMIDT: When we look at where this race is today, the presidential race is effectively over. Hillary Rodham Clinton will be the 45th president of the United States. Chuck Schumer will be the majority leader of the United States Senate. And the only question that's still up in the air, is how close the Democrats will come to retaking the House majority.

What this exposes though is much deeper, and goes to the Republican Party as an institution. This candidacy. The magnitude of its disgrace to the country is almost impossible, I think, to articulate. But it has exposed the intellectual rot in the Republican Party. It has exposed at a massive level the hypocrisy, the modern day money changers in the temple like Jerry Falwell Jr. And, so this party to go forward, and to represent a conservative vision for America, has great soul searching to do. And what we have seen in the -- and the danger for all of these candidates -- is over the course the last year, these candidates who have repeatedly put their party ahead of their country, denying what is so obviously clear to anybody who's watching about his complete and total, manifest unfitness for this office.

Song for your Wednesday!

Killing some time at a work conference and thought I'd share this!



I love this version of Fight Song blended with Amazing Grace. Very cool and the meaning they prescribe to is is awesome.

Just thought I'd share ;)

note from ThePianoGuys about this vid and the meanings of this song to them )

This.

This choked me up so much - so powerful.



As the daughter of an immigrant, this illustrates one of the main reasons - I'm with her.

In memoriam

I never really know what to say. Still can't really. But this video produced by MSNBC with Eli Lieb and Brandon Skeie's song is perfect.

Wow - hello!

So... I chose to procrastinate at work some this afternoon and poke around LJ/DW... Wow, I'd forgotten how much I love fandom and everyone... or something :) It was awesome to just wander LJ/DW!

Everything is good here! Had some great holidays with family, work is crazy but going well, Crossfit is still beating up and I love it... lol.

I realized I missed the [community profile] snowflake_challenge, but I just participated in the friending meme! Been a while since I've done that. Come check it out when you get a chance!


Fandom Snowflake Challenge Friending Meme banner


I've totally fallen down on being a mod - the holidays ATE my time, but I'll be running a regular round for [community profile] rounds_of_kink/[livejournal.com profile] rounds_of_kink in February! Start thinking of prompts you feel like putting up!

And...how are all of you? Hope everyone's well :)

Hello out there! (updates and pimping)

So... how's everyone doing? I'm completely lame and haven't been around much. So I thought I'd do a fly-by update...

  • [community profile] rounds_of_kink/[livejournal.com profile] rounds_of_kink has kicked of the 2015 Summer Heat Mini-Round! There are prompts/kinks listed - all you have to do is use a couple to create a fic of 100 words or more in the fandom of your choice. Come and play with us!!!

  • Holy wow...Supreme Court! Congratulations to all my fellow Americans who now have the same rights as everyone else. I know several who are planning to get married soon :)

  • Work is so busy and kind of crazy. We're finishing up our fiscal year. The legislation that impacts our business is all up in the air. I'm always running after several different things. Not to mention trying to grow a supervisor who has never supervised before... *headdesk* We're working on it...

  • Crossfit is still going strong and awesome... I'm still consistent which is amazing. Now if I can just make sure to adjust my diet. I'm thinking food diary. Bleh.

  • I started attending Zumba at least once a week now too.

  • And I really want to get back to my horse riding. I will be back to complain about my inner thighs when that happens, lol

  • Holy MUSIC, I'm in love with Adam Lambert's new album, The Original High. If you haven't checked it out yet... you totally should. It's different from his other albums, but it's an amazing sound.

  • I'm seriously challenging myself this month because I joined [livejournal.com profile] keiramarcos's Rough Trade Little Black Dress challenge. Three short stories in a Sentinel AU. I am hoping to complete a due South, Teen Wolf, and Last Ship fics. That's more completed writing than I have done in a long time... cross your fingers! If you want to read the rough drafts and all the amazing stuff from participants, check it out.

  • There are several very serious subjects that I just don't believe I can adequately express my opinion on. Others have done so over the past couple weeks, so I'll just leave it at that.

Picture-heavy post under here! )

So... I'm trying to get to sleep and realized I haven't posted in forever...

Update: well, [livejournal.com profile] kink_bigbang is posting (although most of them are late).

Also... ALL of you should go and participate in [livejournal.com profile] zombie_fest!! April showers bring zombies, don't you know? It's 28 days (at least!) of our favorite scary, smelly apocalypse - come and prompt and post! Fics can be anywhere from 100 words on up!

Work has been beyond crazy the past couple of months. Within the last year, I have been promoted to COO and then our CEO went on an extended vacation where he was only available sporadically the past month and a half... Talk about pressure to be the one in charge completely and making decisions like that. Anyways, if any of you wondered where I was - that's where I was, lol.

Let me tell you one thing I've learned about being in charge - it's fucking lonely. And draining. And completely thankless sometimes. I understand a worker's mentality about it only being a job and wanting to bitch about their boss. I can roll with it. But sometimes, dude. Sometimes... *points to icon*

Between work, symphony practice, choir practice, my dogs, my friends and Crossfit, my life has been full, exhausting and awesome. Crossfit is still going - the longest I've ever stayed with any fitness program. I'm going to start working on my eating habits again to jumpstart my weight loss/fitness even more. Although I have to say - today's (yesterday now, I guess) WOD was informative. Part of it was as heavy as possible kettlebell and then goblet squats (squats with the kettlebell held at your chest)... and my kettlebell that I used for all 4 rounds? Fucking 50 lbs. Seriously. If I didn't understand how far I've progressed in the past year and half, that would fucking do it.

Anyhoo... hope everyone's doing well! Stop by and poke me with a comment! Go to my comms and participate!

I'm... going to bed since I have another WOD in... less than 7 hours, lol. Night all! ♥ *tries to fall asleep*
