In much, much more important news, Tripoli is pretty much in chaos as Col. Gaddafi's government violently strikes down protestors -- not just with guns, but with bombs. Yes, it has actually been confirmed that Gaddafi ordered fighter plane pilots to drop bombs on the protesters.

The Libyan Justice Minister, many embassy staffers, and several Libyan diplomats have resigned in protest, with the country's representative in the U.N. calling for Gaddafi's resignation (and with the U.N. itself, at the moment, offering not much more than a slap on the wrist). Al Jazeera is running a livestream of the protests, but it's currently offline. Mobile networks are offline, too, and it's apparently impossible to make an international call on the landlines -- making the already difficult job of reporting from Libya even worse. That may very well be why other states have been so slow to react to the violence, but...surely, we have seen the international community react more strongly against events with even less evidence for support, right?

(waves arms) Hello, there! I haven't been done in yet, neither by academia nor by CLAMP's persistent attempts to crush my heart. There are many things that need to be said -- but I'll spare you most of it, since there's only so much we can talk about at any given time.

Life in the Far North. )

Photographs of the great blizzard...or of a relatively great one, at least. )

Also, about illustrations and graphics. )

Sometimes, it feels like the world is falling down. )

On a more upbeat tone: a belated Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] lavender88 and [livejournal.com profile] pink_for_flower, both of whom were born on the 21st! А с (поздным) днём рождения, [livejournal.com profile] fetterless -- желаю счастья!

I took this last week; the sunset was far more beautiful than this. (Should I start expecting less of myself and my camera and start running my photographs through Photoshop? I'm just an amateur, though, so it doesn't matter all too much.)

I'm looking to post fewer CLAMP-related things in my personal posts, since I think you all get enough of that in the comms and your own journals, so...

Opera, n. A play representing life in another world, whose inhabitants have no speech other than song, no motions but gestures and no postures but attitudes. )

One can only imagine what the entry for Pop Music would have looked like. )

Meanwhile, in Fandomia...(CCS Costume Design, a Discovery, and Others.) )
