You know you're down on your luck when it's a three dog night and you only got one dog and she's a chihuahua.

So Fair Use is Dead

Here's an artistic expression of my displeasure with the DMCA, SOPA, PIPA, attempts by large corporations to censor the internet, and the latest crap being talked about by politicians who are not computer geeks, courtesy of my dog and convenient snow mound:

Oh, the Twelve Days of Christmas

I recently received a currently circulating e-mail about the supposed origins of the song "The Twelve Days of Christmas."  Groan.  A quickly Googled search (with Google) revealed that this mythmail is currently making the rounds of various sites whose bloggers and websters have perpetrated it along to the masses, including a few sites bearing references to Roman Catholicism in their titles.

Come on people, how hard can it be to check with a site such as Snopes dot com before hitting your "Send" or "Publish" button?


On a different note, I had a nice winter solstice.  I spent it in the company of my dog and other loved ones.

the usual stuff: yes this is my image that i created from a photograph that i've taken with my camera.  the original is safely stored on my harddrive and a few other places.  although i do not like to write these sorts of thing, because i understand that the dmca is not my friend among other reasons, i have also found that there are a bunch of people who do not play nice in respect to stuff that some of the rest of us create.  fair use i am for.  claiming that you created something that someone else did is uncool.  therefore: all rights reserved.
