Lord Bowler is dead. [Aug. 22nd, 2008|11:47 am]
RC Girl Fantasy Living Machine
Pancreatic Cancer.

This cannot be true. I refuse to believe it. Nothing can stop Lord Bowler!!!!

A.K.A. actor Julius Carry, for those of you wtf-ing right now. Google it and see what you missed.

This totally cannot be right. Seriously. Some stupid cancer cannot take down Lord fucking Bowler. This has to be one of those internet rumors like JTT. Somebody please find me evidence that he is, in fact, alive and well.

I remember seeing him pop up on an episode or two of Boy Meets World back in the day and being completely ecstatic to see him again.

He was the greatest.

I'm going to go watch all my old Brisco videos and cry now.

Does anyone remember Ashleigh Aston Moore from Now & Then? She played young Chrissy? She died a few months ago as well. She had moved to Canada to get out of the spotlight and focus on her life and, I don't know, be normal I guess. Unfortunately she became a heroin junkie and died of a respiratory infection.

I'm feeling a little better than I have throughout this holiday season. Finally decided to attend Mark and Carrie's New Year's party tonight. I can't wait to start a fresh new year.

If I can survive a house full of strangers tonight while remaining reasonably sober and classy, and even have a good time... that would be a GREAT sign of things to come in the new year.

Good luck everyone, and have a safe and joyous New Year's Eve.

As I watched the newscasters proudly display the success of their toy drive, with video of truckload after truckload of brand new toys being delivered to needy kids, I knew my heart was supposed to be warmed and my faith in humanity renewed with holiday spirit.

However, it wasn't, for I could not escape this single thought:

They're just fucking toys.

People are going out and purchasing brand new toys. Truckloads and truckloads of them. With money that could have been used to donate food, build more shelters, supply necessities like shampoo and toilet paper. But... toys?!? Cheap plastic assembled by slaves in China? What the fuck? I'm sorry, but nobody NEEDS TOYS. When you're dirt poor and you have to go without such luxuries, you learn some valuable life lessons, such as that very fact: They're just. Fucking. Toys.

Oh oh oh wait, that's right, we need toys at Christmastime to help us brainwash children into perpetuating the patriarchal myth of Santa Claus, a sort of Christian-God-with-training-wheels. Awesome.

Call me bitter, but I'm calling bullshit.

So it looks like somebody actually stole my wallet right here at work.

Bastard people.

I didn't have any cash, and they can't really use my bank card, but they took it anyway and dumped my wallet near a port-a-potty down the street. Some nice person found it and sent some of the contents, along with a friendly note, to the address on my license, which happens to be my Mom's apartment. So I got my license back, along with my library card, Blockbuster, & Safeway cards. But not my lovely wallet or any of the sentimental things that were inside. That makes me sad.

Anyway, I cancelled my card and should have a new one in 7-10 days.

Buncha jerks I tell ya.

Alarm at US right to highly personal data

Religion and sex life among passenger details to be passed on to officials

Jamie Doward, home affairs editor
Sunday July 22, 2007
The Observer

Highly sensitive information about the religious beliefs, political opinions and even the sex life of Britons travelling to the United States is to be made available to US authorities when the European Commission agrees to a new system of checking passengers.
The EC is in the final stages of agreeing a new Passenger Name Record system with the US which will allow American officials to access detailed biographical information about passengers entering international airports.

The information sharing system with the US Department of Homeland Security, which updates the previous three-year-old system, is designed to tackle terrorism but civil liberty groups warn it will have serious consequences for European passengers. And it has emerged that both the European parliament and the European data protection supervisor are alarmed at the plan.

In a strongly worded document drawn up in response to the plan that will affect the 4 million-plus Britons who travel to the US every year, the EU parliament said it 'notes with concern that sensitive data (ie personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, and data concerning the health or sex life of individuals) will be made available to the DHS and that these data may be used by the DHS in exceptional cases'.

Under the new agreement, which goes live at the end of this month, the US will be able to hold the records of European passengers for 15 years compared with the current three year limit. The EU parliament said it was concerned the data would lead to 'a significant risk of massive profiling and data mining, which is incompatible with basic European principles and is a practice still under discussion in the US congress.'

Peter Hustinx, the European Data Protection Supervisor, has written to the EC expressing his 'grave concern' at the plan, which he describes as 'without legal precedent' and one that puts 'European data protection rights at risk'.

Hustinx warns: 'Data on EU citizens will be readily accessible to a broad range of US agencies and there is no limitation to what US authorities are allowed to do with the data.'

He expresses concern about 'the absence of a robust legal mechanism that enables EU citizens to challenge misuse of their personal information'.

Hustinx concludes: 'I have serious doubts whether the outcome of these negotiations will be fully compatible with European fundamental rights, which both the Council and the Commission have stated are non negotiable.'

The new agreement will see US authorities gain access to detailed passenger information, from credit card details to home addresses and even what sort of food may have been ordered before a flight. In addition, US authorities will be free to add other information they have obtained about a passenger, leading to concerns about how the information will be shared.

It has emerged that neither Hustinx nor the European parliament were aware of the final draft of the plan.

'If you are going to have this kind of agreement it should involve parliament and the data protection supervisor,' said Tony Bunyan of Statewatch, the civil liberties organisation that campaigns against excessive surveillance.

He warned that under the new system the data will be shared with numerous US agencies. 'The data protection supervisor and the European parliament are angry that they were not consulted,' Bunyan said. 'But they are also angry with a number of elements of the plan such as giving the US the absolute right to pass the data on to third parties.'

Simon Davies, director of Privacy International, another group that campaigns against state surveillance, said the new agreement gave huge powers to the US authorities. 'We have no guarantee about how this data will be used,' Davies said.

A spokeswoman for the Information Commissioner's Office in England and Wales said it would be discussing the matter with European counterparts shortly. 'We are working with the European Data Protection Supervisor and our other EU data protection colleagues to come to a joint opinion on the level of data protection set out in the final agreement,' the spokeswoman said.
