When you see this, make a post in your journal or in a community. It can be anything: a crosspost of something you've posted on Tumblr, a few words about the last thing you read/watched, or just a "Hi, how is everyone?" Then go read your f-list and leave at least one comment.

Okay, so we finally went to see Hobbit yesterday. It was sort of ridiculous but entertaining. Remembering LotR (the film), I have now decided that Thranduil had two sons: he just liked the name Legolas so much that he named each of them Legolas. Also, the 'saving Gandalf' scene was WTF, but I don't care, I just ship Gandalf/Galadriel and like seeing the Big Guns out and about, however unreasonably.

I kind of want to reread LoTR now... and I agree with everyone who said that since PJ isn't allowed to film Silmarillion, he's sticking as much of it into Hobbit as he can.

“The online theft of American intellectual property is no different than the theft of products from a store" - Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX)

... shouldn't Congresspeople be more accurate in their opinion than random fanwankers?

In other SOPA-related news, after Megaupload closed, Tumblr became incredibly touching and sentimental about the role of Internet in everyone's life.

Which is kind of cheering, because back on Russian blogs I opened comments to a posting about rape culture and at the third comment quickly remembered that you shouldn't read runet discussions about feminism. There was about a thousand comments. In the third one a probably-female blogger was explaining that there's no such thing as rape culture: of course, there are women with a victim complex, but this is a problem for psychologists to work on. I have no words.

And then by chance I've come upon a blogger whom I _know_ to be a classic example of a misogynist slash fan, posting about the second Ritchie Holmes film and saying that it was worse than the first one, but at least they killed off Irene Adler. Which was like icing on a cake (made from uneatable stuff)

Internet is my world, but sometimes I do want to hide from the world.

People who are actually gay and go around and explaining that "We just need to keep our private lives private, and then there won't be any problems, and by the way, same-sex marriage - why on Earth do you need that?" are so very annoying somehow.

Also, went to see Anonymous yesterday. It was as stupid as I expected, and even more so. Oh well, it started with the fire in the Globe, which was started by soldiers in armour trying to arrest Ben Jonson (yes, Ben Jonson hangs around the Globe all the time, and brings them his plays). Yes, they started a fire in a big building in London by purpose.

Everyone in this film was an idiot, including the scriptwriter. Though the cinematography was rather pretty. Anne Cecil was also rather pretty, though her father was constantly failing at being diplomatic, menacing and/or artfully manipulating people. Also, Cecils were puritans.

Also, no Tudor prince theorist ever managed to explain how any bastard child of the queen could have chances for the throne.

I think my favorite character was Walsingham (was it Walsingham? Well, someone to whom Marlowe reported stuff). He was just sitting there and mostly having playwrights reporting to him about what was on stage. Was he the first theater critic ever?

And Mark Rylance acted in tiny bits of the plays like he had no chance to do so in ages and just missed the experience. Which was weird.
