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.

Random thought...

Christmas is just around the corner...
With the usual wish for world peace and end to world hunger, I wish from Santa...

JYJ to appear in one of Arashi's shows!
It can be HnA or AniShi or even VSA!
It doesn't matter which one, but I would love, love for my 2 fave groups to be in 1 show.
Although, it would be something to see JYJ on VSA -- with both of these 2 groups being very competitive, I would love to see who'd win! ^^

OK, enough for wishful thinking... back to RL...

Uwaaa!  My laptop died on me and I lost everything ARASHI. 
The good news is it's now back up with larger memory/disk space.  The bad thing is it's empty.  No Arashi vids. 
I  have to replenish it with all the goodies again...
Oy vey!  Troublesome doesn't even begin to describe that...
I loved the convenience I had before -- if I wanted to watch the SCP interview, it was just one click away...
Ah well, that's life, I guess... I should just stop whining and start the downloading once again...  :o(
