All I can say about the Hunger Games movie is that I love Woody Harrelson even more now.

victory is mine!

Nevermind, I've finally gotten on Pottermore! I'm done hating on everyone else, make as many usernames as you want. My name is MoonQuest40, which is not that great but better than my other choices.
I am having the hardest time getting onto Pottermore and I seriously hate everyone right now that is taking up spaces just to change houses or usernames. Because I am jealous and bitter :(

Also quick edit: I'm in California and have a lot to update on but I'm too busy doing shit for my aunt/trying to get on Pottermore.
Pictures from my Epic Trip of Awesomeness, Part 2Collapse )

And so ends my Epic Trip of Awesomeness :( Still wish I was out there, tbh. New England is getting on my nerves.
I'm posting twice in a month! What a shock!

Actually, I just wanted to upload all of my favorite pictures from my trip. Plus I'm bored and waiting until it is an appropriate time to get ready because I'm going to see Ok Go for free tonight. So... lots of pictures under here, hurr durrCollapse )

Uhm... I have a lot more so I will just stop here and split them up.

AH SORRY FOR FORMATTING FAIL :(

I can't think of a clever title.

Today I got lost in San Francisco and it was amazing. I want an accurate record of this day so I'm writing this even though I am tired and should probably just sleep already.

So anyways, here's a long ass entry and a lot of medium sized pictures under the cutCollapse )

Anyways, tomorrow I've got to start packing for Vegas/Arizona and then we are going back to Twin Peaks. And then we're doing some fun touristy shit around the Golden Gate. But seriously, today was amazing and you get one thousand gold stars if you read this whole entry.

THIS IS RANDOM BUT

since i totally bitched out on sending postcards last summer, I'm totally willing to send out some fun California/Las Vegas/Arizona postcards if anyone wants any. I actually just bought some for my own postcard wall and now I know the best place to get super cheap postcards around here.

um... let me know, I guess. And if you want to send me some too, that would be awesome.

Also, I wish my goddamn sinuses would stop trying to ruin the start of my epic vacation of awesomeness. This shit is not cool. I feel like my head is going to explode and my ears still haven't popped from the plane ride. I am considering stabbing my ear drums.
Do any of you guys have a tumblr? I've revived mine and I'm using it a lot more than this thing so... uhm, give me your tumblr if you want. Or not. This is mine.

In other news, today I went to the beach and got this:

Yep. That is the only place I was burned, except for my face. I don't even understand why. I was constantly putting on sunscreen and yet... there it is. I really hope it starts to fade on my face before I work on Wednesday or else I will be treated to six hours of "LOL UR FACE IS RED!"

Aaaand it's only 9 days until I go to California. And I've gotten tickets to see the Blue Man Group while I'm in Vegas. I expect a whole lot of drunken "I JUST BLUE MYSELF!" after that.

Fuck. My. Life.

I don't even live in one of the flooded areas of RI but a ton of water came up through the ground and basically ruined all of my things. Awesome.

I was going to make a post on how shitty this month has been but I'm too depressed now. I think I might go slit my wrists.

And the best part is, we don't have flood insurance!!

If you are reading this right now, you have more luxury than someone in Iran could ever hope for right now. If you are watching TV or a video on youtube, updating your status on Facebook, Tweeting, or even texting your friend, you are lucky. If you are safe in your home, and were able to sleep last night without the sounds of screaming from the rooftops, you need to know and understand what is happening to people just like you in Iran right now.



They are not the enemy. They are a people whose election has been stolen. For the first time in a long time, a voice for change struck the youth of Iran, just as it did for many people in the United States only seven months ago. Hossein Mousavi gained the support of millions of people in Iran as a Presidential candidate. He stands for progressiveness. He supports good relations with the West, and the rest of the world. He is supported with fervor as he challenges the oppressive regime of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

On Friday, millions of people waited for hours in line to vote in Iran's Presidential election. Later that night, as votes came in, Mousavi was alerted that he was winning by a two-thirds margin. Then there was a change. Suddenly, it was Ahmadinejad who had 68% of the vote - in areas which have been firmly against his political party, he overwhelmingly won. Within three hours, millions of votes were supposedly counted - the victor was Ahmadinejad. Immediately fraud was suspected - there was no way he could have won by this great a margin with such oppposition. Since then, reports have been coming in of burned ballots, or in some cases numbers being given without any being counted at all. None of this is confirmed, but what happened next seems to do the trick.



The people of Iran took the streets and rooftops. They shout "Death to the dictator" and "Allah o akbar." They join together to protest. Peacefully. The police attack some, but they stay strong. Riots happen, and the shouting continues all night. Text messaging was disabled, as was satellite, and websites which can spread information such as Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, and the BBC are blocked in the country. At five in the morning, Arabic speaking soldiers (the people of Iran speak Farsi) stormed a university in the capital city of Tehran. While sleeping in their dormitories, five students were killed. Others were wounded. These soldiers are thought to have been brought in by Ahmadinejad from Lebanon. Today, 192 of the university's faculty have resigned in protest.

Mousavi requested that the government allow a peaceful rally to occur this morning - the request was denied. Many thought that it would not happen. Nevertheless, first a few thousand people showed up in the streets of Tehran. At this point, it is estimated that 1 to 2 million people were there. Mousavi spoke on the top of a car. The police stood by. For a few hours, everything was peaceful. Right now, the same cannot be said. Reports of injuries, shootings, and killings are flooding the internet. Twitter has been an invaluable source - those in Iran who still know how to access it are updating regularly with picture evidence. People are being brutally beaten. Tonight will be another night without rest for so many in Iran no older than I am. Tonight there is a Green Revolution.

I don't normally post things like this in here (I've found that politics + the internet = bad times) but the lack of knowledge is really starting to annoy me. And I really don't care if this is clogging up your friends page, you can go ahead and defriend me if you're really that upset about it.

This site has a step by step on setting up proxies, and if you do this, send them to @ProtesterHelp (BUT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, SEND THEM AS A DIRECT MESSAGE. DO NOT POST THEM ON TWITTER) or email them to me@austinheap.com. Even if you're technologically retarded, get informed, get the word out and wear green to show your support.

Don't be a douchenozzle and say you don't care because it's "not your country."

If you're clueless about what's going on, I found that this explains pretty much everything.

I'm disabling comments because I don't want to hear any wank about politics or anything else.
> YOU.

California Part 1: Big Sur

I've finally uploaded the pictures from my trip to California onto my computer. And I'm going to split it up into parts because I have a lot of pictures and what not.

So... My first three days there I was still pretty sick but on Monday we drove to Big Sur. It was pretty cool because it's on this highway that's right on the coast and there are certain places where you can pull over and take pictures of the beach and what not. And I took a lot of pictures, haha. Warning: There are a lot of pictures.Collapse )
