In light of all of the recent SOPA talk here, I thought this might be of interest [26 Jan 2012|08:59pm]

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.

Holy crap, from a completely straight perspective, Keira Knightley looks friggin' hot in the trailer for the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie.  She is definitely on my "girl crush" list...well she already was but now she's pretty much numero uno.

FIY at the world's end is apparently a very cold looking China with Chow Yun Fat.

Check it out at the official site for the movie

Kiss me goodbye [20 Aug 2006|03:22pm]
[ mood | bitchy ]

       I am so sick of every goddamn person and their mother making tutorials.  Some of them take 20 steps to make the same thing sharpening the damn image would've done!  If you haven't been using photoshop for at least 6 months or are precocious or some shit like that DON'T WRITE TUTORIALS!  Has anyone heard of a color wheel?  It tells you what colors look fugly when put together!  Now I'm not saying that my icons are "amazing" or whatnot but I'm not going to go make a tutorial on how I made the threadless icons. 
Step one FIND A FUCKING IMAGE
Step two RESIZE THE FUCKING IMAGE
Step three SHARPEN/CONTRAST THE FUCKING IMAGE
       There's my tutorial, ain't it grand.  I don't want to be rude and post a reply to someone that says "hey your icon looks like shit, I don't want to make something that looks like that."  At the same time I am so sick of my friends page being littered with tutorials by people who just got the hang of photoshop or are little 12 year olds making sparkley text and bitmap shit.  UGH!

       Plus, am I the only one who hates tutorials that are just text? Or the ones that say it should look like this
Grr, yeah I know the sound is way too calm for my rant. O_o

     Two things to update about: First off, have you seen the Dolce and Gabanna  Spring 2006 collection?  Oh my goodness it is amazing!  I wish I could get some of that stuff.  I was gonna give y'all the link but it seems to not be up on vogue.com yet which is odd.  AHA!  I found it.  I'm in love with the pink, black, and white LACE! <3  I have also found a newfound fondness for Tatiana O.  Isabeli Fontana is becoming a favorite too.  I tend to like the models with the fuller faces.  What about y'all?  Go look! 

     Christian Lacroix's collection disappointed me though.  The fabrics were more ugly than couture or pretty.  There were only a few things that I liked compared to the many that I either laughed/cried at.  I'm also beginning to dislike Lily Cole too.  Her head is too small for her body or something...maybe 'cuz I haven't seen her smile a whole lot. 

     Also, Why is it that I'm seeing orange Hermès dresses everywhere?  I've seen the same one 3 times and now there's another one in Vogue.  They're everywhere!

     Last but not least for all you photoshop dorks like me out there.  If you have an IPod go to the Podcasts sections of Itunes and look for PhotoshopTV, it's free and offers tips on lots of different stuff.
