password security question

Is there a thing kinda like LastPass that I can run off steelypips.org? Or not even with the fancy browser integration, just something that will let me safely decrypt, edit, and encrypt a password list?

Because I definitely like the idea of LastPass, but it's true that they are a big fat target, and if I could get the same functionality (or something approaching it) that's just for me, well, that seems like it would be less of a target. Or does the difficulty of properly implementing such a thing outweigh the possibility that LastPass's data could be obtained, especially if I use a proper master password and turn on two-factor authentication?

(Context 1: right now I use a program that syncs between my desktop and my Palm, but that requires I have physical access to one or the other, and sometimes I don't. (Also, eventually the Palm will go away, of course.))

(Context 2: this very interesting article about password cracking.)

Face Off

Does anyone but me and [personal profile] leighdb watch this SyFy reality show about a special effects makeup artists competition?

Finally: artists, the trend of seeing African-American models and automatically doing "voodoo," "tribal," or animal-based makeups needs to stop.

two entirely unrelated links

That I previously posted to G+ and forgot to move here.

First: Another post about rape at Fugitivus, an excellent (definitive?) explanation of why rape culture is culture.

Second: [personal profile] absolutedestiny has vidded Toph and Lin Beifong to LL Cool J's "Mama Said Knock You Out," and it is AMAZING. Embed behind the cut, or download at their journal. Spoilers for all of Avatar: The Last Airbender and season one of The Legend of Korra</a>.
