A Versus S: The Rise of the Clones (or something)

Because we are about three days away from Operation Reconnect on Saturday and this time I put a post-it note up to remind me that come hail, bad weather, or epic pneumonia, I will be watching this. Um, unless John Sheppard appears on my doorstep. Then all bets are off.

Linked first by gweniriol:

the following post is [about] anonymous hosted by Henry Jenkin's blog, apparently from an (anonymous but not Anonymous) student. It, er, has nothing particularly new to say that anyone on lj hasn't been saying, but it's a nice and concise summary of events so far.

Serious Business, hosted by Citypaperonline, a pretty darn good article about Anonymous, Scientology, the internet, et al. Really, really interesting.

The Definition of Insanity Is...

Theoretically (as in, from the internetz I got my learnings), insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different response. That personally makes no sense to me, because as we all know, doing something exactly the same way over and over is a flat out guarantee that it will have a different response just as you have fallen into the rut. Which is why people are up at four in the morning when their hard drive inexplicably crashes and they lose all their media after saving it the same way as always. Not that this has happened to me. But I have heard of it.

However. At work, this is the actual definition of sane. Doing the same test over and over and over until it starts working. I literally think that at some point, someone is going to come in here and find me sitting in my bra and a pair of sunglasses talking to my imaginary best friend Bob the Toaster. It's just that likely. Assuming I remember to wear a bra.

It's over soon. Well, not really. But the part that's making me have some kind of strange interaction with the not-real world (ask chopchica about my sudden desire to turn all of SGA into actual vampires; this can't end well).


I rarely rec music, but if you are say, in a bad mood? The rageful kind? Falls Apart by Hurt is doing good things for me. It tricked me. The beginning is faintly slow emo by way of Staind and I was all, whee mope, oh woe my hard life, then suddenly there's like, that virtual feeling of being in a room full of guitars and your job is to smash them all. Yes. That please. It's on youtube (a lot), but I can't listen from here to see which version sounds right.

*taps chin thoughtfully. I would like to hear more about this. You know, later, when you have free time and school is a little easier to bear. See, I'm a sensitive enabler. That's something, right?

But really. Vampires. Even if you don't go the Jossian route, John as a Nosferatu? With the dark and the menacing? Um. I request more. Plz.

*g* I was thinking John, too. In that darkly stalking way where he'd enjoy the chase.

Hm. Something like this. Except not in second person.

I'd love to see an entire Earth expedition of vampires show up in Atlantis, wake up the Wraith -- and totally pwn them. There need to be Wraith queens kneeling at John's feet. (They'll be promptly shoved aside by Rodney, of course. But it's the thought that counts.)

...God, warn a girl before imagery like that. *wide eyes*

I want this.

Falls Apart by Hurt

When I'm feeling emoesque and rageful at the same time, this is the song for hours on end.

Hell yes. It just--emo emo emo BREAK BREAK THINGS NOW.


I think that insanity definition is flawed, because in most situations where you do the same thing again and again you hope that some minuscule thing over which you have no influence yourself will have changed. Like take my desktop computer, for some reason it sometimes just doesn't start. A quirk it developed shortly after the guarantee period ended, as these things always do. When it runs, it does so without error, but sometimes it just doesn't, not even the BIOS screen, though all fans power up. I tried opening it and checking all the cables, disconnecting all unnecessary stuff, cleaning out dust, everything I could think of, but the fact remains that for months now, it will start most of the time, but when it doesn't the only thing I can do is trying to boot it again and again, until it does. Which so far it always has *knocks on wood*, sometimes after two tries, sometimes after a dozen, but eventually it does. I feel really silly, but considering that it works once it has started and that I can't really afford to replace it, or reproduce the error to get it repaired, it does not feel that insane to do the same again and again, hoping for the one different outcome...

Exactly! Exactly! Especially with computers! FOR MYSTERIOUS REASONS!

The vampire fic has the possibility of being truly awesome. Totally agree with the above comment about possessive Rodney too. Human-type vampires vs the Wraith = awesome. If you ever get the time to write it, please do!

Re: clones, not ponies - not even these ponies? 'Cause I kinda sorta think they rock...


Well. Those ponies. Maybe.

Because we are about three days away from Operation Reconnect on Saturday
!!! Thanks for the updates on all things Anonymous.

I will be watching this.
Is there a central place to keep track of it all?

ps: your QAF vampire!fic still freaks me out. And yet, I'm strangely intrigued about the SGA version.
