I actually do have quite a bit to tell you, readers! Well, it may not be that interesting but bare with me – some parts will get sassy, I plan to rant my ARSE off. I severely dislike people. Like, really. People in general because they are so f&*@ing annoying – get me?
So, anyway – I had my first lecture in 2 weeks yesterday! I seriously need to buckle up now because I know there is quite a lot that I have missed (cry), My lecture was about prosumers and copyright. Copyright is such a touchy issue, nowadays. My lecturer was talking about this thing called palimpsest, which is a manuscript, which has had the text from previous, scraped off and can be used again. It was really quite interesting to see the way she applied it to different texts in the media, for example, I’m sure everyone has had of the book Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, right? Well, there’s also a book called Wide Sargasso Sea by an author named Jean Rhys, which is basically like Jane Eyre – the only reason it didn’t run into any copyright laws is because Charlotte Bronte had died and it had been over 70 years already. Another text that suffered the copyright law was the film Alien (1979) where the director was sued by an author who wrote a book called Voyage of the Space Beagle who claimed that the director had basically copied his book and made it into a film. He was taken to court but they just paid the author out and everything was fine and dandy.
Personally, I would have rather not had the money only because I’d want people to know that this director was phony and I mean look at it now, the film is famous and I’m sure most people will have heard of it but wouldn’t know that it was copied from somewhere else. Sigh, what people will do for money.
We have a presentation for next week due which is about the lecture yesterday. Also have a presentation for tomorrow. Isn’t my life fun?
In other news, ROB IS BACK! This means more kissy time. Haha :]
Ugh, don’t people just annoy you? I’m referring back to what I was mentioning at the beginning of this post. So, basically I was invited to go out last night which is all nice and great except for the fact that I didn’t WANT to go out. Like, I’ll admit I am a party animal (Mutay had to agree with that, ha!) but as a student I do not have unlimited funds nor do I have a job so it’s really difficult to be able to go out every week like some of my friends can because they have jobs or they don’t care they’ve gone into overdraft (argh)
My friends, S & B, kept nagging and nagging me to come out last night so much that it got to a point where I just had to snap and be like, “LOOK! I already said f&*@ing NO! What do you want from me?!” and then S was all like, “Alright, no need to be all moody,” Well, I’m sorry but if you’d just listened to the fact that I had said no from the beginning then I wouldn’t have snapped at you! And B was like, “Everyone’s going to be there!” You are telling me this, because…? If everyone’s going well that’s good for them, that’s their choice, right? I’m just asked you to respect my choice, please.
Gosh, people just can’t take no for an answer. :<
