This post exists exclusively to get Google to index that link. The page it leads to is in Swedish, so most of you won't be able to read it. But the basic story is this: There is a group of linguists who every year compile a list of new words in the Swedish language. This list is descriptive, in spite of what our old-style media keeps screaming. For 2012, the list was to include the word "ogooglebar". Which would be "ungoogleable" in English, I guess. It was defined as "not possible to find on the Internet by using a search engine". Google's lawyers protested this, and wanted the linguists to change the definition to specify "Google" instead of saying "search engine". The linguists refused, on the grounds that that is not how descriptions work. The suggested a few different phrasings that would serve to protect the status of "Google" as a registered trademark. Google accepted none of them. So in the end, the linguists decided to retract the word "ogooglebar" from the list of new words.

To retract it from the list very, very publicly.

One of the arguments from Google's lawyers was that the list only had a single reference to the use of the word "ogooglebar". Well, today there are more. A lot more. And you can find them using any search engine you want.

Fuck you, Google. Fuck you right up the MapReduce.

E Online is running a poll for favorite TV couple, running two couples against each other and the winner proceeds to the next round. They're up to the semi-final round, and out of the four remaining couples three are same-sex couples. The way the numbers stand as I write this, it looks like the final round will be entirely female, pitting Brittany/Santana against Bo/Lauren.

My second fic for the year also turns out to be for Pitch Perfect. Primarily. It crosses over with D.E.B.S., Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Harry Potter, Doctor Who and Lost Girl. It can reasonably be labeled "crackfic".

And my first posted fic for 2013 turns out to be for Pitch Perfect. It's 18000 words of Beca/Chloe. Go read. Or not, as you chose.

The guy sitting next to me on the train to work this morning was reading a bible and mumbling to himself as if he was praying. I was listening to Rihanna's "S&M" and writing Pitch Perfect femslash. He probably wouldn't have appreciated the contrast nearly as much as I did, had he been aware of it.

Right. So I watched this movie. It's about this dark-haired girl who comes to a new school. At this school there's this team doing a competitive version of a mostly aesthetic activity. The girl at first spurns the team, since she prefers what she considers a cooler version of the same activity. But she joins anyway, and soon discovers that the team's performance is fundamentally flawed in a way that'll prevent the team from winning. After some trials and complications, she helps create a new performance with which they find success. All through this, she's being extremely slashy with one of the older girls on the team (and there's speculation that a couple of other girls on the team may be lesbians), only to in the end suddenly hook up with this boy who's been sort of on the periphery throughout the movie.

Care to guess if I watched Bring It On or Pitch Perfect?

This is a really good "Once Upon a Time" femslash piece. Also, somewhat unusually, not Swan Queen but Ruby/Regina. Go read it, you lot. This entry was originally posted at http://cdybedahl.dreamwidth.org/500329.html. I'd prefer it if you commented there.

So you got saddled with my request, and you're wondering what to make of it. I don't think you need to worry much. If it has women being in love and/or shagging each other, that's fine. Please use decent grammar. Please do not write in the second person.

OK, so what did I request anyway... *goes off to look*
The requestsCollapse )

This scene just jumped into my head, and there's really no way I can fit it into a story, so I'll just write it down here. Maybe it'll amuse someone.

NSFW (although, text, so you'll get away with it)Collapse )

I have perpetrated fic. In which I attempt to be funny. It's a Big Bang Theory fic, set around Penny/Amy and referring back to Penny/Missy. It's set somewhere late in season five, during the preparation period for Bernadette and Howard's wedding. And it can be found on AO3.
