Black March - Thursday March 1st 2012 to Saturday March 31st 2012 With the continuing campaigns for internet-censoring litigation such as SOPA and PIPA, and the closure of sites like Megaupload under allegations of 'piracy' and 'conspiracy' the time has come to take a stand against music, film, and media companies' lobbyists. The only way is to hit them where it hurts. Their profit margins. March 2012 is the end of the First Quarter in economic reports world wide. Do not buy a single record. Do not download a single song, legally or illegally. Do not go to see a single film in cinemas, or download a copy. Do not buy a DVD in the stores. Do not buy a videogame. Do not buy a single book or magazine. Wait the four weeks to buy them in April: see a film later, etc... Holding out for just four weeks, maximum, will leave a gaping hole in media companies profits for the first quarter, an economic hit which will in turn be observed by governments world wide as stocks and shares will blip from a large enough loss of incomes. This action will give a statement of intent: "We will not tolerate the Media Industries' lobbying for legislation that will censor the internet."

Edited to add my own thoughts (not part of the original reddit call for action) And if you do not feel like taking a total break and perhaps want just a trial separation or couple's counseling, then perhaps consider Black March Lite 2.0 = spend, but spend money on those content creators and independent retailers who came out against SOPA/PIPA.  And tell them why you're buying their products in March.  There are many of them.

And for those who favor the more targeted boycott, you can find info  here.  But no matter which,  you can participate and you can tailor your level of participation.  We have the tools, the will and the strength to take a stand.

ASJDAHDSJHFD... sigo molidísima del sábado, pero aquí traigo las fotitos del salón. Me tocó ir al final con mi padre, pero me lo pasé super bien porque 1) me pude llevar la cámara buena y 2) porque me encontré con unos cuantos amigos que no veía desde hace yo que sé cuánto. En cuanto que me ha parecido el salón, creo que para ser el primero ha estado muy bien, me he divertido cosa mala y me he quedado medio sorda por el concierto de última hora del sábado. Solo me fastidiaba lo del escenario cuando fue el concurso de cosplay, que no había quien viera nada si no habías pillado hueco en el suelo a primera hora. Por lo demás, había más espacio para ir de un lado a otro que en el salón de Murcia, que en ocasiones te tragaba la marea de gente xD. Y que, jooooo, ¿ahora hay que esperar otro año para la siguiente edición? Una se va a llorar al rincón.

En fin, he subido un montón de fotos, sobre todo porque sé que [livejournal.com profile] teniente_ross no pudo ir por estar en Suiza y, bueno, porque me gusta almacenar en mi journal los recuerdos buenos.


muchas pero que muchas fotos (en formato png para no cargar la conexión) )

Si, por aquí ando de nuevo. La verdad es que es difícil llevar a cabo un Hiatus, porque te pica la curiosidad el fandom o porque simplemente quieres entretenerte cotilleando y no puedes.

Pero vamos, yo ando aquí para contar mi viajecito del viernes pasado al Castillo de Lorca, un pueblo que ni siquiera sabía donde estaba hasta entonces. A mi cuando me sacan de Alicante y alrededores me pierdo cosa mala XD.


2 horas de bus, 110 km de carretera y 3 horas de visita + video )
