"A good friend of ours said that if the same laws were applied to U.S. Presidents as were applied to the Nazi's after World War II, then every single one of 'em, every last rich white one of 'em from Truman on would have been hung to death, and shot. And this current administration is no exception. They should be hung, and tried, and shot. As any war criminal should be. But the challenges that we face, they go way beyond administrations. Way beyond elections. Way Beyond every four years of pulling levers. Way beyond that, because this whole rotten system has become so vicious and cruel, that in order to sustain itself, it needs to destroy entire countries, and profit from their reconstruction, in order to survive, and that's not a system that changes every four years, it's a system that we have to break down generation after generation after generation after generation after generation. Wake up."

~Zack de la Rocha @ Coachella 2007~

I think V would agree, don't you think?

Calling all writers, readers, artists, lurkers and assorted fan-persons! I have a question to put to you all. A-hem...

Should I host the V for Vendetta Fan Fiction Awards for a second year?

If the overwhelming answer is "Yes," then I'll be implimenting various changes to the structure of the contest, mainly initializing reader-voting, as well as anonymous contributions by authors and artists to limit excessive friend-voting (and hopefully, flaming).

I'm also looking for a better name. Last year it was called "The Phoenix Awards"--y'know, Fawkes = Phoenix? ... Yeah, that's about the reaction I got last year, too. :P So, suggestions for a snazzier and/or more apropos name will be greatly appreciated.

Leave me comments and let me know if I should start sprucing up the website!

Although fun, it seems my merry pranks were rather put of time.
Therefore, I have prepared a short vignette of apology.
Nothing fancy.

Forgive my lack of posting to this site, but at long last one of the projects that has occupied my mind can finally be revealed.
it was quite a trial to keep it a secret.

Thanks and the word "Vendetta" [Feb. 4th, 2007|11:20 pm]

Hi every :)
I watched V4V two weeks ago, and if I'm not spending time celebrating this movie it's because you already know how it's wonderful.
(Yes, you do forgive me: my English is second-rated, but I'm Italian - 21 years old, female. Nice to meet you.)
About Italian...
Saying first I've not read the comic, I would ask you: why the word "Vendetta", in Italian? (Maybe I could find this info in this LJ's archive; in this case, could you link the post?)
In V4V-TheMovie I found a lot of quotations... The five "V", Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici (and Veni Vidi Vici, that's I came, I saw, I won in English, it isn't?), Saint Sebastian as homosexuals' Saint in V's house, etc etc... I suppose there were a lot of other quotations that I have to find out.

Thanks, anyhow. :)

Let's all take a moment to remember Guy Fawkes, executed today in 1606.

Fawkes at midnight, and by torchlight there was found
With long matches and devices, underground...

Neato V article in Cineaction [Dec. 25th, 2006|11:36 pm]

The most recent issue of Cineaction magazine has a great article on V4V, analyzing its messages and pointing out a lot of parallels between Sutler's England and present-day America (there's lots!). It's a great read and suprising, I was just coming into work the other day and there V was, staring at me from a magazine cover. It's nice to know it hasn't been forgotten by a fickle public. Actually, the DVD was a hot item for Christmas this year, warms my heart.

Anyway, I scanned the article, here it is-

Read more...Collapse )

There's a lot of other stuff about rebellion through film as well, if you can get ahold of it I'd higly recommend getting it.
