I sometimes wonder if anyone will ever truly understand me, I keep waiiting for that day when I will meet that person who will see me for me and not for what they want to see.

My personal ramblings

I really wish I had some Arashi friends in real life. Don't get me wrong the fandom is awesome, but I still wish I could talk to somebody about Arashi face to face and they would get what I'm saying without me having to explain all about Japanese music in general.

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Essential ACTA Resources

  • Read more about ACTA here: ACTA Fact Sheet
  • Read the authentic version of the ACTA text as of 15 April 2011, as finalized by participating countries here: ACTA Finalized Text
  • Follow the history of the treaty’s formation here: ACTA history
  • Read letters from U.S. Senator Ron Wyden wherein he challenges the constitutionality of ACTA: Letter 1 | Letter 2 | Read the Administration’s Response to Wyden’s First Letter here: Response
  • Watch a short informative video on ACTA: ACTA Video
  • Watch a lulzy video on ACTA: Lulzy Video

Say NO to ACTA. It is essential to spread awareness and get the word out on ACTA.

Via Tumblr


If you are in the US, the only thing I know of is this petition, which requires 25000 signatures in 30 days for any sort of response: https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions#!/petition/end-acta-and-protect-our-right-privacy-internet/MwfSVNBK

There are only 3000 signatures right now.

I don't know what options there are in other countries, but again, for the US, I imagine calling Senators would be a course of action. It worked on the surface for SOPA and PIPA, at least, and it at least sends the message that this is not okay.

If you do, though, [personal profile] opusculus notes that it has been signed already so it is probably worthwhile to mention that you know that and are protesting it anyway.

ETA: this tumblr post has more global resources for how you can protest ACTA.

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find subbed shows of the group Exile. I already know about the exsub community, but they haven't released any videos in a while.
I really appreciate any help I can get.
Thank You.

Help please

Hi, I need some help, I've been trying to locate a specific episode of Mago Mago Arashi. It's the episode where nino and jun are the grandkids but at the beginning of the episode Sho suddenly shows up because the filming for Kisarazu is close buy. I was hoping to find the english subbed of this episode but a raw video would be fine as well, Also if you have a clip of that specific moment between the three I would appreciate that as well.

Thank you, I appreciate any assistance you guys can give me with this. :)
