It’s getting hard to be someone, but it all works out - John Lennon

Pithy snapshots of my brain through captures of tv/film, music, quotes, and other inspirations as I find them.

ABOUT ME: Part-time vidder. Full-time grad student. Lifetime fangirl.

I use my LJ for more lengthy fandom things, reactions, score/picspam metas and the like. My Pinboard keeps all my recs of fic, vids, and meta as I find them. I recently founded THG Music Archive after Hunger Games totally usurped my brain and then said "No, I'm a book, silly. You have to wait to vid all the things you want to vid for at least THREE YEARS." Books are cruel, yo.

I know Scotland is a small country but we are going through something massive right now. In two days there is a referendum on whether we should become an independent country.

This is big and it is important because for 300 years we have been under the thumb of various Westminster governments…

One of the downsides of being an English expatriate in the US is how many people come to me with questions about either the UK itself (England in particular) or various issues they have read or watched in the news.  Recently, over the last couple of months, I have asked me in the last couple months about my views on the vote for Scottish independence.  I think I’m just going to give them this video URL and go about my business.

John Oliver sums up both sides of the issue very well and has made it, easily, my favourite segment he has done on Last Week Tonight.

On Sept. 18, Scotland will head to the polls to vote on the Scottish Independence Referendum Bill.
To understand this vote for sovereignty and secession from the United Kingdom, it’s helpful to take a look back at the history of the relationship between England and Scotland.

oh-glasgow:

If you can’t decide in the independence referendum because you don’t know which side is lying to you, simple logic can help you out. Here’s the reasoning:

First, assume that both sides are lying; you know that both can’t be telling the truth, but it is possible that both are lying about what…

'It's the Question of the Moment…' by Jef Sinclair

In today’s submission, Glasgow comic artist Jef Sinclair explains why she’ll be voting yes on Thursday. 

"It’s now just a couple of days until Scotland will vote in the Independence Referendum. The tension is palpable and the anxieties of a whole nation are coming to the forefront. 
It’s taken me a while to really express why my vote will be for an independent Scotland, though not as long as the two years I’ve spent researching, assessing my views and coming to my decision. My comics are always quite wordy, but I felt this one really took the biscuit! It’s been amazing to watch the outpouring of creativity and talent that we’ve seen over these last few months and I’ve been inspired by everything I’ve seen. I wanted to make my tiny mark and give my future children something to look back on.
There’s not much left to do now except hope that in the aftermath, we can all pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and work together to build a better country. Whatever the outcome.”

You can read more of Jef’s comics on her tumblr, and follow her on twitter

Jef would also like to thank Neil Slorance for helping out with the editing of this comic :)

"I think I auditioned twice in L.A. [for Winter’s Bone], and then they went back to New York ’cause that’s where they were based, and then I found out that they didn’t think I looked right for the part. So I — like a psycho — thought, ‘I’m gonna chase you to New York on a red-eye,’ so I did, and I showed up, and I think the red-eye plus the walking, like, twelve blocks in the sleet and snow, added up to me definitely looking right for the part. And I think by the time I got there they were probably just so terrified of me—that I flew all the way there — that they were like, 'We better hire her because I’m afraid she’s gonna sleep outside my house!'"
