Are you saying you set :attr_accessible nil and it won't let you assign any attributes? If that's the case, just manually set them when necessary. New/create/build take a block form so you can do this somewhat nicely:
Something.create(params[:something]) do |thing|
thing.attr = params[:something][:attr]
while I realize that seems silly, it's better than the alternative :)
