    I can't remember if I've posted this before, but even if I have it's worth watching again... this is Joss Whedon explaining why he writes strong female characters and the reason behind Equality Now:

    brandeks: (pride)


    From the Facebook page...

    The CEO of Cinemark, Alan Stock,
    donated $9999 to the Yes on 8 Campaign, but
    now expects to profit from showing MILK in his theaters.

    If 1,000 of us commit to see MILK at a competitor's theater
    instead of Cinemark, at an average cost of $10 per ticket,
    that's $10,000 of lost revenue.

    Boycotts work. A boycott of a Sacramento theatre company
    resulted not only in the resignation of a Yes on 8 contributor,
    but a public apology and donation to Human Rights
    Campaign! We can do this again.


    Why *another* boycott against Cinemark?
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    While we support a complete boycott of Cinemark's properties,
    not everyone agrees. But what we can ALL agree on is that Cinemark
    profiting off of Harvey Milk's legacy is an insult to our community,
    and we cannot support it with our dollars.






















    It makes me ill to think that I've been watching movies at theatres with this guy as CEO of the company. From now on I will be taking my business elsewhere... I don't care if they have a virtual monopoly here in the Bay Area. AMC, Landmark, and Lowes will be getting my ticket money.




    ...also, happy birthday to the godfather of nerdcore: MC Frontalot!

    Some of you may have gotten a message when you sign into Yahoo! Instant Messenger that "brandeks" is adding you. This is because I just changed my email from brandeks2000 to simply brandeks. That way things are a little more standard than before. From now on I'll be IMing from the latter account and eventually deleting the former.

    That is all...

    I was working at the new store yesterday, helping to get it ready for today's big debut, and it is just beautiful. I am seriously looking forward to working there. New store, new hours, and even a new manager... the one who hired me is moving on to other things. Apparently the new guy is pretty cool, so that's good. What's really nice is that graphic novels and manga have their own area now. So I'll be making sure we get more ordered than previously possible. And there are places to eat at T & C that aren't as expensive as Stanford Mall was, with more variety.



    Update 2 February 2007 / 11:47 AM - Here is a pic taken two days ago of some of the staff and I, courtesy of hagbooLori:

    ... no longer available by phone.

    The first number many Northern Californians have dialed for generations after a blackout – the seven digits that spell "popcorn" – is going out of service in September 19, 2007, AT&T announced in a mailing to customers.

    A company spokesman said the proliferation of other ways to find out the exact time made the service, offered by the company since the 1920s, redundant. AT&T also says the 1960s equipment used is failing, with no replacement parts available. As it is, the service is only available in Nevada and California.

    Joanne Daniels, the woman whose familiar voice for the last 25 years read the exact time every ten seconds and then urged us to "please take a note of it," said the initial recording sessions were quite lengthy.

    "I had to record every single possibility with different inflections," she said.

    Daniels’ voice also delivered the temperature in some states, and even a wake up service offered in Manhattan. Before retiring, she also worked as an actress and voice actress.

    What some people may not know is that you did not have to dial popcorn to get the time; all you needed was 767 followed by any other four numbers. Since the service is going away, 300,000 new phone numbers will be freed up for use.











    I just found out about this. It feels like I lost a friend.

    Because of today's time change I was going to call, but my computer had updated, so I didn't bother verifying as I reset all the other clocks in the house. Now I know that I'll never hear that Southern accent again.

    In 24 hours or so I will own a copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

    To paraphrase a friend of mine: anyone who spoils the ending or any part of this book will meet with an untimely demise. Ya'll have been warned.



    Oh, I just have to:
