A HUGE 'Thank You' to sireesanwar for troubleshooting and updating the code for this layout so the background works properly! I love the design and it is available at layout_lounge in THIS entry if you want it for yourself. I made my own header of course, but the rest of the elements can be found there.

A couple of photos of my Azalea.....Collapse )

Seriously. WHAT THE FLYING FUCK WORLD.

"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."

The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. I don't know if they will crack down on torrents only, or if it is up to the internet provider. I get the sense it is up to the internet provider. So some people could get away with downloading non torrents, while others might get their internet service cut off. I urge you to click it and read, as we all know people who download.

No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly. I'm so sorry my friends. I don't even know if BT Guard will work to protect you, but I would google it if I were you. It is a professional service that supposedly can protect you from the invasive eyes of your internet provider.

Just, my friends, please make each other aware. Please be aware of the date JULY 12TH. Mark your calendar and double check with your internet provider by then. If you start receiving notices of downloaded activity, this is why. And your internet service could be throttled or cut off.

Fox News confirms this:

...for Helen Hollick's Pirate Code:



BIG thanks to both my patient husband and deloriage for being models! And Bronwen Harrison of Guesswork for yet another brilliant soundtrack.

I'll be creating a video for Bring It Close next month. Then I'll be caught up with the pirate series trailers. I'm currently working on a trailer for a new client and should have it completed by May 1st. Also, a second trailer for Deborah Cater this month.

And it looks like I'm going to be working with another publisher!!! Zumaya Publications! Yay!!!!

No time for a daily random graphic today *sad face* but I was productive. I hope everyone has a Happy Easter weekend!

My King Arthur icon that I've used for this post is my favorite though....I just picture the knights pushing Arthur to dress up as Ole St. Nick for them each year and hand out new swords and daggers.
