From the “this is fcuking ridiculous files”

comes this beauty: the "Respecting Copyrights merit patch" (not a badge yet)
for the Los Angeles area Boy Scouts of America (BSA) troops.
from the article in
Boing Boing

" Boy Scouts in the Los Angeles area will now be able to earn a merit patch for learning about the evils of downloading pirated movies and music.

The patch shows a film reel, a music CD and the international copyright symbol, a "C" enclosed in a circle.

The movie industry has developed the curriculum.

"Working with the Boy Scouts of Los Angeles, we have a real opportunity to educate a new generation about how movies are made, why they are valuable, and hopefully change attitudes about intellectual property theft," Dan Glickman, chairman of the Motion Picture Association of America, said Friday."

(italics mine)

precious. just precious.

There's been a lot of buzz around Vox regarding NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. here's an example
I am not signing up as I can't envision myself writing~ 1600 wpd average for 30 days.  however, I came across National Blog Posting Month NaBloPoMo which asks that you post on your blog once a day for 30 days.  I can handle this. [crosses fingers].  To play along, send an email to
fussy (at) fussy (dot) org to be added to the list of participants (not a requirement).

Intrigued? mildly interested? more details available at Fussy | NaBloPo 

Feel free to use any of these
nifty icons on your blog.

Asshat of the Year

It wouldn't be a surprise to any of you to find out I'm not a fan of Rush Limbaugh. and if it is, you either don't know me at all, or (blessedly) live far away from the reach of an U.S. radio station.

The reason I'm even posting about the douchebag is because of his reaction to this ad:


in which Michael J. Fox supports Claire McCaskill, Democrat Senatorial candidate for Missouri. Fox, a Parkinson's disease sufferer, speaks in the ad on support of stem-cell research and on support of McCaskill.  but the politics of it are not the issue.   on his radio show, Rush actually accused Fox of faking his behavior (shaking, hesitancy) on the ad, and casted doubts on whether Fox has Parkinson's at all, or to what extent.

that is pathetic. ridiculous. embarrassing.  well worth the "Asshat of the Year" title. Rush, you maroon. DIAF.

for anyone interested in reading more about this matter, here is the linky goodness.

transcript of Rush's remarks

an article from CBS news

edited October 27, 2006@19:31:  Michael J. Fox is interviewed in the CBS Evening News, October 26, 2006

many thanks to Arbed for the heads-up.

Watership Down poster

Of course, it is a given that Watership Down is one of the best books evar.  the movie gets mixed reviews; I've only seen it once, when I was, if not a wee lass, a weeer version of my current self. I enjoyed it at the time. but what I want to talk about is the movie's poster: One of the greatest, more brilliant (brilliantest ?) movie posters I've seen.

  Savage and touching all at once. and that quote…

All the world will be your enemy,
Prince with a Thousand Enemies,
and when they catch you they will kill you…

But first they must catch you.

The poster never fails to give me chills.

edit October 20, 2006 @2023  : I am so glad so many of you like the poster, especially Indy Bunny, who described it way more eloquently than I could. of course being an actual bunrab, she has a much better point of view.  for those of you who may be interested in purchasing this poster, here  are links to sellers. 
I also want to note that there is a reason you hadn't seen the poster before: when the movie was released in the U.S., it was with this poster:

I guess "they" thought the original poster was "too dark" or "too violent"…
'tis for shame
