Because my sister tempted me with redemption arcs and Leonard Nimoy. I'm up to the first episode of season 2, so please no spoilers past that!

And there'll be spoilers up to that episode in this post, of course )

Spoilers for this week's episodes of everything! In order of airing:

Thundercats )

Legend of Korra )

Transformers: Prime )
laurus_nobilis: (Sci-fi and aliens and stuff)
So we were having dinner and watching the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie, which my mum had never seen before, and this happened:

Mum: This looks like an adaptation of something older.
Me: Yeah, the original is from the seventies.
Mum: It's very Doctor Who-ish, isn't it?
Me: ... yes, yes it is |D

It might not sound too epic, but since it was deduced on seven episodes of Moffat!Who and about ten minutes of movie, count me as Impressed XDDD

From [personal profile] speak_me_fair at CISPA is the new SOPA


Here's their next move: The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA, would obliterate any semblance of online privacy in the United States.

And CISPA would provide a victory for content owners who were shell-shocked by the unprecedented outpouring of activism in opposition to SOPA and Internet censorship.

The House of Representatives is planning to take up CISPA during the week of April 23. Click here to ask your lawmakers to oppose it.

SOPA was pushed as a remedy to the supposed economic threat of online piracy -- but economic fear-mongering didn't quite do the trick.

So those concerned about copyright are engaging in sleight of hand, appending their legislation to a bill that most Americans will assume is about keeping them safe from bad guys.

This so-called cyber security bill aims to prevent theft of "government information" and "intellectual property" and could let ISPs block your access to websites -- or the whole Internet.

Don't let them push this back-door SOPA. Click here to demand that your lawmakers oppose CISPA.

CISPA also encourages companies to share information about you with the government and other corporations.

That data could then be used for just about anything -- from prosecuting crimes to ad placements.

And perhaps worst of all, CISPA supercedes all other online privacy protections.

Please click here to urge your lawmakers to oppose CISPA when it comes up for a vote this month.

Thanks for fighting for the Internet.

The dark side is not giving up so we must continue to fight the good fight.

Spoilers for the last two episodes!

in here )
laurus_nobilis: (Happy minions)
TF: Prime's episode is a two-parter, so I'm going to leave the rambling until next week. But it gave me AAAALL THE FEEEEELINGS. |D

Anyway! This post is actually about season 2 of Generator Rex, which I watched a couple of days ago so I'm more or less coherent about it.

Spoilers for the whole season, of course )
laurus_nobilis: (Knitting)
→ I keep forgetting to mention this but, for those of you who prefer Dreamwidth, there's a mirror of my fic journal over there.

→ I am loving the new Transformers: Prime episodes, but I want to wait until the whole season premiere airs before I make a proper post about it. =D

→ I'm slowly catching up with Generator Rex! I'm up to episode 2x08 now and, oh, do I love that show. ♥ I'll probably make a long post at the end of the season like I did with the first one, unless there is something that I absolutely need to ramble about.

→ I finally gave up and made an account on Ravelry. (Well, technically I remembered I've had a never-used account since about a year ago.) ... I am never getting my life back, right.
