"Advice to fashion models: if you have backwards opinions keep them to yourself, especially if you’re stiff as a board, prudish, and have skin that’s so jacked-up it’ll cost me an extra two hours in post production. Photographers book you for work, don’t insult us."

Pirate Bay Verdict = Jail Time & 30 million kronor fine

From Wired:

"Pirate Bay administrators Fredrik Neij, Gottfrid Svartholm Warg and Peter Sunde were found guilty in the case, along with Carl Lundström, who was accused of funding the five-year-old operation.

In addition to jail time, the defendants were ordered to pay damages of 30 million kronor ($3.6 million) to a handful of entertainment companies, including Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Bros, EMI and Columbia Pictures, for the infringement of 33 specific movie and music properties tracked by industry investigators.

Sunde, The Pirate Bay's spokesman, announced the news over Twitter Friday morning before the verdict was official. He remained defiant, and offered comfort to supporters. "Stay calm — Nothing will happen to TPB, us personally or file sharing whatsoever. This is just a theater for the media."
From The Pirate Bay page:
"But as in all good movies, the heroes lose in the beginning but have an epic victory in the end anyhow. That's the only thing hollywood ever taught us."

"Charity shops are thrilling places: a vintage dress found for mere pence; the smell of a hundred other people's washing detergents; a single item of junk that can spark a rush of memories. For a snoop like me, even the most banal cast-offs are fascinating, a window into another world."

"How to deal with a child having a tantrum in the car park of a petrol station. The options are limited - you can either pick the angry child up - or pick it up. There is probably a hippy injunction somewhere about not invading their personal space in moments of high tension, but when you are haphazardly parked because you only stopped in the first place to poke a cat, and the likelihood of incoming traffic is high because you're in a petrol station, then you pick it up, the angry elf."
