Join us in standing up for reproductive health and education. Planned Parenthood, the organization that delivers reproductive health care, sex education and information to millions of people worldwide, has come under fire in the U.S. lately, with many politicians on both state and federal level seeking to end funding (and in a few cases succeeding).

During the month of May, you can send a specially designed Planned Parenthood vgift to your friends to help support this cause. (And if you need someone to send it to, frank is always happy to receive gifts!) There are three variations ($1, $5 and $10) for you to choose from, but they'd all look good on your profile when your friends know that you stand by something so important.

                    

Thank you all for your help in our support for Planned Parenthood. This promotion ends June 1, 2012; LiveJournal is not affiliated with Parent Parenthood. For more information about Planned Parenthood, please visit: http://www.plannedparenthood.org/

At a time when the horror genre seems to consist solely of cheap jump scares and MacGyverish torture contraptions, writer-director-editor Ti West's The House of the Devil proved a pleasant anomaly: a slow-building '70s throwback which understood that the process of getting spooked is at least half the fun. The Innkeepers, West's follow-up, winningly continues the retro streak, doling out the murk and gloom by steadily escalating degrees, anchored by Sara Paxton's wonderfully appealing mope of a lead performance. Kicking off with a knowingly chintzy Internet gag, the story follows a pair of bored clerks (Paxton and Pat Healy) working at a rickety Victorian inn during its last few days of business. Taking advantage of the lack of guests, the not-so-dynamic duo begin investigating the building's reputation for housing things that go bump in the night. After a boozy psychic (Kelly McGillis) checks in, however, the once-quaint creaks and moans become terrifyingly tangible. West makes smashing use of his confined location, patiently holding shots for several beats past comfortable and slowly venturing into cobwebby hallways until the goose bumps come marching in. Unfortunately, when it finally comes time to go for broke, The Innkeepers falters a bit, delivering a resolution that, while eerie, has a hard time measuring up to the anticipation generated by the fantastic first hour. Still, even if West can't quite stick the landing this time around, his film stands as a must-see for anyone feeling the blahs from the latest scary movie trends. If this tale was told around a campfire, many a s'more would be dropped.
--Andrew Wright


I really liked it. Paxton, Healy, and McGillis were great. Although, I do have to agree with Andrew Wright's assertion that the ending left something to be desired, but I'd still recommend it. That is if you're into spooky movies. The scares are legit.

I am Troy Davis.

The state of Georgia (USA) is going to murder me on Wednesday, September 21, at 7:00 pm for a crime that I was unjustly convicted of.


The prosecution based their entire case on the testimony of nine eyewitnesses, SEVEN of whom have since recanted that testimony. Sylvester "Redd" Coles, one of the two remaining eyewitnesses to not recant, admitted to many that he was the shooter. The weapon used in the commission of the crime was never recovered and there is NO other physical evidence linking me to this crime.

Even if you do support the death penalty, you should oppose it in my case due to the immense doubt surrounding my supposed guilt. To murder me would be a great injustice. Not only to myself, my family, Officer Mark MacPhail, and the MacPhail family, but to the entire human race.

My death will only serve as an example of how unjust the United States "justice" system really is. No one will find peace or closure when my heart stops beating. Murdering me will not heal the wounds or fill the voids of the MacPhail family. Mark MacPhail can't and won't be brought back when I stop breathing.

I am Troy Davis and my life is worth saving.

"I want you to know that this has nothing to do with guilt. I realize that none of the people in this room and none of the people in the other rooms to which I speak every single week in this country somewhere are the ones, who themselves individually or even collectively, are responsible for the creation of this system of inequality, of privilege, of oppression, of marginalization and that is not the point. I know we didn't create it, but we are here now and we inherit the legacy of that which has come before.

If you were to become the Chief Executive Officer of a company one day, you would not be able to go into that company and call your Chief Financial Officer on the phone and say, 'You know what? I want to look at the books. I want to know how much we have, what our assets are, what's our revenue stream. I want to know all that because I want to take us to new and greater heights.' So, you ask the CFO to come in and give you the Power Point presentation, the spreadsheets, and she comes in with all this technology and all this data and gives you the presentation. 'Here's our assets. Here's our revenue stream. Here's our outstanding debt. What do you think?'

You wouldn't be able to look at that CFO and tell her, 'You know, I really like your presentation. It's great to know we have all these assets and some really amazing income coming in. But the next time I ask you to come and show me that, don't bring me the debt material. All that stuff about what we owe because, see, I wasn't here when you all ran that up. That was that other guy. That was your last Chief Executive Officer. The debts of those older leaders? Those are on them. Have them pay them. I'm going to make use of the assets. Oh, yes. I'm going to make use of the income. Oh, yes. But I'm not going to pay the debts because they're not mine.'

You couldn't do that. You'd be ushered to your car by security. But that's exactly what we do as a society, isn't it? We say the debts are not ours. Oh, the glory is ours. All the stuff we have accumulated as a nation and as a people, that's ours. We don't mind living in the past as long as it glorifies us. That's what history books do. That's what July 4th is. We just don't want to own up to the part that's less flattering because we feel guilty.

But it isn't about guilt. It's about responsibility. Those two things are not synonymous. If we don't know the difference, we should look it up. When we get tired of living in the funk and the residue of that which has been given to us by others with no regard for the impact and the damage that they would do to us and to our children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren, if and when we are lucky enough to have them.

When we get tired of living in that residue, in that funk, and saying, 'enough,' we'll get busy cleaning it. Not because we created it, but because we are the only ones left to do the job. And if we don't, we will be back or our children and our grandchildren and our great-grandchildren will be back in rooms just like this one in generations to come. But I assure you that if they inherit this legacy as we have inherited this legacy, the stakes will be greater. The risks will be far greater and the odds of success and victory at creating justice and opportunity for all will be far more remote. And so if we don't want to see that day, it's up to us to get busy. It's up to us to take responsibility. Not because we are guilty, but because we are here.
