Many of you probably have heard about the latest Thief (@Saloomalm) out there who copy pasted the F20 Designs and printed them on shirts and started selling them to the public in an exhibition and how proud he was of taking something off the internet and saying that “he’s the one who owns it because it’s on the internet” well I’m here to tell you that this my friends is another reason why Plagiarism needs to be educated in this country of ours.
My previous post [Stolen Words lead to Stolen Ideas] unfortunately was seen in a real life event recently. Remember when I told you “plagiarism” is the act of copy pasting someone else’s work and taking credit for it? Well this lame ass loser (yes I called you a loser, I’m not scared of you dumbass!) when confronted that these designs belong to the designer Fatima Al Othman (F2O Designs) said that he didn’t know that and he found them online just printed and went to a guy to print them on shirts. And now that he knows they belong to someone else he will keep printing more of them and will sell them at half the price just to destroy the original artist.
Unfortunately no one here understands Copyright laws but thankfully F2O Designs is a copyrighted trademark which means the second you duplicate that piece of work without the artist’s consent you can be guaranteed a law suit. And to that I say dearest Fatima bury the mofo! Bury him in the deepest pits of hell because that’s what he deserves.
When our dearest blogging friend OwlOlive confronted him on Twitter he admitted that he got them off the net and that he will just print more and sell them without a care in the world.!
People, just because a picture, an article, or anything is available online does not give you the right to just copy paste it and say “Ohhhh I just came up with this theory!” it’s like you going online to Wikipedia copy pasting Einstein’s Theory of Relativity and saying “Oh look at me, I’m the shiznat! I discovered this shiat and Einstein is worthless!” a real person is taking another person’s idea and furthering it, bettering it, giving it a personal spin. Same thing goes to you bloggers (yes you idiots who go on celebrity blogs steal the photos without linking, steal articles without linking even if you paraphrased the shit (oh wait you don’t understand what that word means, paraphrasing means copy pasting but adding one or two word of your own, sometimes you just add an “OMG” or “Moo Seeej!” yes I know you do that!) You still have to reference the first place you found it. The internet is free but it is not meant for you to steal from!
Grow up stupid dumbos! Yes you are a dumbo if you copy paste shit and say it’s yours! We’ve all made that mistake I used to use Google Images in my posts without referencing them but I’ve learned that too was an issue. So I’m fixing my errorful ways! Fix yours!
Stop stealing dumbos and start innovating!
So when I get angry at plagiarists don’t blame me even if I go nuclear, whether it is my work or someone elses’ it hurts and I will go all Hulk-like on you! For more information you can check out Fatima Al Othman’s Twitter [Here] to get the latest update on this situation.

So as most of you know I’ve been recently hit with the “Room redecorating” bug and I wanted to redesign things and change out of the dull brown/beige get up. Almost 5 years ago I was in love with the color Brown because well I don’t know I felt that it was nice but now I’m glad that I went with a gray + red option. I will not unveil the entire room but rather a small portion. The Apple Portion of my room. You see, everyone knows how obsessive I am, and how much I like to purchase new Apple toys even if its just iPods so I thought what better way than to incorporate that into my room and below is what happened.
In the corner near my bed I went with two of my favorite Steve Jobs quotes above a Magnetic White Board and a medium sized bookshelf. The top quote speaks very close to my heart and says “The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, You’ll know when you find it.” And the second quote simply tells me to “Stay hungry… Stay foolish…” Both quotes are very dear to my heart.
And in the other corner behind my door above my shoes I went with the “Think Different” decal.
I am very happy with the way things turned out and I’m glad that my room now has a tiny extra piece of me in it.
Next time will unveil the library of the room although some of you have seen it on Instagram.
It’s a New Year and I’ve been doing my share this year by spreading some amazing beautiful pieces of art all around the blogging world. Well not me only, my Sister #4 as well! She’s been a great help through this all. You might be wondering as to what I’m talking about. Well I’ll tell you…
Late last year (hahaha sounds funny just saying it) I redesigned 7ajidude’s header to something so awesome and amazing, showing their personalities to the hilt! They loved it and the whole public who has seen it expressed their love for it. It took a while and I harrassed my Sister (#4) for it but in the end she delivered an amazing job and header! They are now a “brand” one which gives you a warm flowy feeling when you view their website :)
But that’s not the only thing I did, earlier in 2011 I was bombarded by my best friend Swera for a unique header but well I postponed it due to job things, and my travelling (actually scratch all that it was due to my laziness). And luckily for her the delay happened because the final product was a complete different thing than what was first discussed. In the end, the result is beyond gorgeous! Hell it makes you drool every time you stare at it! (Sister #4 helped out majorly!)
The beauty of the headers I created is that I gave both their personalized “Watermarks” or “Signatures” to place on images shot by them, and display pictures to match the whole look. It really don’t matter what theme you use with your WordPress account. The beauty is in the graphics and the unity. If it is done in a clean manner then you’ll appreciate your website even more!
Other headers I created were for my Twirlie and College Bestie Swair, which you can see below here, but for her it was a huge blog makeover from a previous one.
And not to mention my own design!
So what do you think of them so far? Failures? or Objects of Beauty?
P.S. Will probably set something up in which those who wish to order headers for their blogs, they’d be able to contact and sign up :) Of course everything comes at a price. So keep a watch out for it.
With the last days of this month I have decided to stop mourning my beloved Steve Jobs completely. The color black will disappear in a way from this page yet Steve will always and forever be in our hearts! Feast your eyes on my latest creation (this time without the help of the sister who shall not be named [Yes I am insinuating that you are Lord Voldemort!])
Even though most of you saw a sneak peek of my newly designed character and some features of it my design with my gelaskins I think now you can see another version of it. Every element in the header represents something that is near and dear to me and well, this year I am hoping to instill a few holiday cheers within each banner (sort of bringing back Vintage Jacqui [something a majority of you haven't seen because you are new]).
Anywho, enjoy and share your thoughts and ideas. I wanted to go with a major change yet I thought this was major enough :D
Well I believe this can be called Stage 3 of the redecoration I just wanted to show you so far of what happened to the area, from Stage 2 to Stage 3.
That was the before image.
And this is the after image, we changed the chairs, installed the shelf, installed the Morrocan Hand Woven Carpet that I recently got as a gift from Morroco, and Daddy’s little art objects.
