Zoicite☆For all I carry are murdered

~Daily Download: Final Fantasy Pray~

Title: The Promised Land by Risa Ohki from Final Fantasy Pray (YouSendIt)
Genre: Angsty Alternative
Requestee: destry
You like this Artist/Group, you'll probably like: The vocalized albums of most video games. Like the Suikoden Series, or Xenogears Creid (I live and die by that album, but seriously, you guys -knew- this)
Comments: I listened to most of these songs when I was deployed in Qatar. I loved that place, especially when I went through the city. It was exotic, the archetecture was AMAZING and well it made me wish that I had gone down to Doha City more times, but well I did not so well.. let's just say that Final Fantasy Love Will Grow and Pray were my musical food of choice. There I was in a foreign land, and well I felt just like some of the heros from my favorite video games.. ahead on my way. Of course the reality was not like that at all.. but perhaps in my dreams. I definitely recommend this song, it is the vocalized version of the over world theme for FFII and the Promised Land is a recurring theme in Final Fantasies (No, FF7 was not the first Final Fantasy to filch that phrase from the Bible). (Also do not confuse FFII with FFIV.. because I do not go by the american versions). You love Final Fantasy music, download this!

Notable (Favorite) Lyrics: | "One day, someday, You'll surely find me sailing away... For the white beach of the promised land." |

Remember if you download, then by all means comment to tell me you nabbed it, and if by any chance it says that the link expired or is broken, then prod me in comments so that I can re-upload it. *hint: I also like to hear reactions to the songs that you download*

Well, in the Valdemar/Xenogears crossover, Hyuga just got chosen by his Companion, Yui. This makes everyone inordinately happy, though Yui is going to have a FINE time explaining to Hyuga just how he is lifebonded to the Hawkbrother, Sigurd. Ahahaha I don't envy Yui.. Neither does Bard Jin. >.> But hey at least Jin only has to talk with Sigurd about it, not with the little youngling.

~Something that makes a whole lot of sense and hits close to home~

*Gotten from angeliccelestia

A lot has been said about how to prevent rape.
Women should learn self-defense. Women should lock themselves in their houses after dark. Women shouldn't have long hair and women shouldn't wear short skirts. Women shouldn't leave drinks unattended. Fuck, they shouldn't dare to get drunk at all.

instead of that bullshit, how about:

if a woman is drunk, don't rape her.
if a woman is walking alone at night, don't rape her.
if a women is drugged and unconscious, don't rape her.
if a woman is wearing a short skirt, don't rape her.
if a woman is jogging in a park at 5 am, don't rape her.
if a woman looks like your ex-girlfriend you're still hung up on, don't rape her.
if a woman is asleep in her bed, don't rape her.
if a woman is asleep in your bed, don't rape her.
if a woman is doing her laundry, don't rape her.
if a woman is in a coma, don't rape her.
if a woman changes her mind in the middle of or about a particular activity, don't rape her.
if a woman has repeatedly refused a certain activity, don't rape her.

if a woman is not yet a woman, but a child, don't rape her.
if your girlfriend or wife is not in the mood, don't rape her.
if your step-daughter is watching tv, don't rape her.
if you break into a house and find a woman there, don't rape her.
if your friend thinks it's okay to rape someone, tell him it's not, and that he's not your friend.

if your "friend" tells you he raped someone, report him to the police.
if your frat-brother or another guy at the party tells you there's an unconscious woman upstairs and it's your turn, don't rape her, call the police and tell the guy he's a rapist.

tell your sons, god-sons, nephews, grandsons, sons of friends it's not okay to rape someone.

don't tell your women friends how to be safe and avoid rape.
don't imply that she could have avoided it if she'd only done/not done x.
don't imply that it's in any way her fault.
don't let silence imply agreement when someone tells you he "got some" with the drunk girl.
don't perpetuate a culture that tells you that you have no control over or responsibility for your actions. You can, too, help yourself.

If you agree, repost it. It's that important.


I was raped, I was raped by a cousin when I was eight years old, because we were playing hide-and-seek in a barn and he thought it was -okay- to do it.   You had better believe that this is a subject that I feel very strongly about and so I WILL post it.   Sorry for the spam, but I think that it is important enough to post. Rape should never be about what a woman could of done to prevent it, that is just excuses for a lack of self control.. which is never a woman's fault.
