timepiececlock: (Origin of Love)
[livejournal.com profile] wisteria_ pointed her flist to this video of street theater and this Salon article about it, which just brightened my heart. I can't wait to show my mom tomorrow.

from Salon.com, on why people love watching it:

"What they are presenting to the people in that station (and the rest of us, of course) is the ideal of human co-operation. They're showing us the possibility that a bunch of unrelated, unconnected people could spontaneously burst into a song and dance routine in a train station because that's what they all wanted to do and that's what we could do too, if we set our minds to it."

Plus, look how much fun they had preparing for it.

Outside of city parades--which are planned--I've only ever been part of one moment of spontaneous public dancing. Read more... )
timepiececlock: (Rashaka is my name)
I am going to do my taxes tomorrow, and clean up my bedroom.

Then, and only then, will I be worthy of New Who.

When the end of the month rolls around...

If anyone's looking for a person to give a Dreamwidth invite code to, I'm your woman. I did the OpenID thing and registered myself, but IRC has always eluded me in its alleged simplicity (I didn't even know it had anything to do with DWth) and I'm not entirely sure that I understand the whole invite-request process. I have DWth fail. Given how dependent I am on communities for fandom interaction, I don't foresee a mass migration of the Shaka from LJ on my own, but if the rest of you jump, I'll straddle the ship and the dock with you.

Amazon Rank!

Glad to help, SmartBitchesTrashyBooks.com

Edit your posts on this topic to include a link to Amazon Rank and googlebomb the whole thing. =)

Directions here: http://www.smartbitchestrashybooks.com/index.php/weblog/comments/amazon-rank/

Why? Because a) it's bigoted, and b) I don't approve of using rules to limit what appears on search tool listings. CENSORSHIP FAIL x2!

EDIT: US Amazon customer service number: 1-800-201-7575

I called. The guy told me they were aware, and were fixing it, and "You don't need to worry ma'am." I told them it wasn't a matter of being worried, just disappointed, and that I would resume my patronage when and if they stop being asshats.
