Trying a mobile client

I'm testing posting from ElJay, an Android client that's sort of compatible with Dreamwidth.

Based on the new ToS ...

... I'm considering moving over to Dreamwidth.

As many of you may have heard, as of 04/04/2017, LiveJournal is under the control of SUP Media LLC.

If you would like to review the new Terms of Service before logging into your account, you can read them here.

I am specifically concerned about sections 9.2.7 and 9.2.8: how will these new terms impact those parts of LJ that focus on political discussion? Given Russia's restrictive stance on those who identify as LGBTQ, how will the ToS impact LJ communities focused on those issues?

I really hate to see this happening. I've been on LiveJournal for so long. Also, forgive my paranoia, but I have to wonder if there have been more than 15 comments on that News post. Responses are screened until the mod has the chance to reply, so I have to wonder if anyone asking about these issues simply doesn't get unscreened.

I'd feel bad abandoning my communities, but there's only one that really sees any activity these days.

RuPaul's Drag Race All-Stars is coming!

I love this show to bits.

I hope Chad Michaels wins.

Based on her previous appearance in S2, I think Raven is dull as dirt and relies on those overpumped lips to stand out. We'll see if she's improved.

I love Nina Flowers and Shannel (she was so robbed by Rebecca Glasscock in the first season).

I wish Shannel, Pandora Boxx, and Latrice Royale could have an episode where they get to judge Santino Rice for a change. If you aren't a couture queen, you don't rate in his book, and he's vicious about it. It is not just at the judge's table, so he can't use that as an excuse: he criticized Pandora on the reunion show, and I'm like, really? It would have killed you to be nice, or at least not be mean, for just one episode? If Kathy Griffin is on the D list, I don't know how far we'd have to go through the alphabet to find Santino.

I find some of Michelle's critiques off the wall, as if she's really reaching, and her laugh occasionally grates on my nerves, but she does seem like a caring, motherly human being who feels genuine appreciation for the queens. I've listened to one of her post-elimination lunches, and she seems much smarter and warmer there, so I think the editing actually hurts the judges sometimes, too. :)

Queens I'd have liked to see on All-Stars who aren't: Jade Sotomayor, Ongina, Shangela, Morgan McMichaels, Mariah, DiDa Ritz, Willam, and Tatianna.

Puzzling

I understand snafus that result from rights ownership when it comes to television properties. What I don't understand is why contracts aren't written in such a way as to ensure that, five or ten years down the road, content based on the franchise can't be created in a new form, such as a series of novels, regardless of current ownership.

My point is that I don't understand why novels based on Deadwood and Twin Peaks don't exist, darn it.

Hullo!

Hi! I'm afraid there's nothing terribly interesting here for you to read, outside of this little intro post. I use this journal to keep up with the numerous LiveJournal communities to which I subscribe. Thanks for stopping by!
