Thanks on behalf of the world to everyone who went to these marches! They were such a huge signal of hope to us all.

I often get dishartened when I see women not standing up for themselves, yesterday we (and especially the US women) stood. So many of women, so many who hate crowds and never have been to a protest before went out and made themselves heard. Makes me proud and hopeful.

I hope we can find a way to channel this unifying protests into a movement to oppose the rise of fascism around the globe.

I don't know what to say.  I hate the suffering this man will cause in this position. I don't know how to process the absurdity of this exept with humor.  Saw this very fitting German webcomic today. (Translation below)



 then:

House of Cards: An unsettling dystopian story, where a ruthless, manipulative murderer becomes president of the United States.

Now:

House of Cards: A hopeful utopian story, where a strategically thinking, self controlled grown up, without a twitter account is president.

So, me posting on DW and using this to start posting more often again, hopefully.

I'm currently playing Life is Strange, of course years after the rest of the world has played it, but damn, this is one fine game!!! I love it! I think it might be the first game, I played that actually passes the Bechdel test.  I love Max and Chloe and I adore the grafics.  This game is so beautiful and it feels like Veronica Mars with the voiceovers and High School detecting and everything.

I'm near the end of ep4, so no spoilers please, but if you'd like to talk about the game, I'd love to.

I really rarely play these days, since it is so time consuming and I have so little free time between teh little guy and work, but it really relaxes me.

I don't like LJs move to Russia. This is all very disturbing.

Check out this post for more information: http://rahirah.livejournal.com/695706.html

I have tried migrating a few times already. But this time I'll do it for good. I wish all the authors I had friended on LJ would migrate too, but I guess GRRM will be hard to move.

Anyway, my name on DW is rogin and if we are friends here, I'd love to add you over there.

Just saw it and liked it a lot (have not been to the movies in two years, so I was easy). Guess they hit the Zeitgeist jackpot starting a five movie series about a bottle blond fascist.

The good ones really all know when it is time to leave, don't they?

Let's hope this will go over well. I'll keep my thumbs pressed for you.

I want to see the sun come up on November 9th to a President Clinton. Then Trump can have a public meltdown that can replace "Der Untergang" as meme sourcematerial for meltdowns for the ages. The End.

This show has hooked me like nothing in the last 5 years or so. l love it! It's fluffy stylish ball full of 60ties/7ties feminism.

Anybody not watching this should deffintely give it a try. Especially fans of Mad Men and The Good Wife.

Seems VD fucked them badly, since the electorate had no idea what was coming and the vote was much easiert (cheaper) to game than the Hugos.

The funny thing is that he essentially made sure that the Dragon Award will never get the traction of the Hugo Award if the first book it is slapped on is some drivel by JCW.
