An Open Letter to King County Metro

nudiemuse:

To Whom it may concern,

I have sent many emails to Metro and been met with the thanks for your input canned responses.

So publicly.

If Metro makes their proposed changes, I (and a lot of people I ride the bus with regularly) will have no ability to get home after 10 PM when leaving downtown…

All right- see these awesome belt pouches? Each one’s currently slipped onto a 40” belt. Each one hand-constructed to be able to hold ALL the contents of your pockets whilst looking infinitely more awesome. Each one ready to go anywhere. 
Now, normally at conventions or online, I sell these for $120 apiece (plus shipping, if shipping’s needed) Right now, because I need the funds so I can cover things through the first day of ECCC, I’m going to offer a bit of a deal. The first person to contact me privately and pay me for one of these through paypal gets to have one for only $95 dollars, including shipping inside the continental US. (International folks, you’re welcome to the $95 price, but I will have to add on shipping fees for you) That’s twenty-five bucks off of the regular price, and for those who know me, I don’t offer these kinds of deals very often, if ever. So, who needs to get belted?  

Trust me, peeps, one of you needs to jump on this deal and throw money at winneganfake.

Boosting the signal for two very worthy grants for speculative fiction writers:

The Working-Class Grant

This grant is awarded annually to assist working class, blue-collar, poor, and homeless writers who have been historically underrepresented in speculative fiction, due to financial barriers.

The Older Writers Grant

For writers who are beginning their career over the age of 50: age should not be a stumbling block!

boost

Signal boost! (And I need to send the info on the older writers grant to Dad.)

All right. tickets for the added Night Vale Seattle show go on sale in a little over twenty-four hours. Two sales, or anything that’ll put me over the $60 mark, are all I need to get in so I can be sure I can afford a ticket for myself. So help me, this is going to happen. So, WHO NEEDS STUFF?

Signal boosting, because there has to be some of you who need to purchase stuff from Tormented Artifacts?

I DON’T KNOW IF YOU GUYS KNOW ABOUT THIS BUT YOU SHOULD.
To anyone in the UK: this little 3 year old girl lost her best friend, named Mr. Rabbit, in London a few days ago. Her mother has begun an online campaign to find him. The little girl cries herself to sleep every night because she misses him. These best friends should not be apart. 
This is Tumblr guys! If anyone can find this rabbit, we can. Please reblog the shit out of this to reunite these best buddies.
If you have any leads, report them here.


Help find Mr. Rabbit! You will have the eternal gratitude of Clovis Devilbunny and the Evil Bunny Alliance. 

(Hi, I’m 45 and I have nightmares about losing Clovis. HELP FIND THIS LITTLE GIRL’S MR. RABBIT.)

english-translation:

So we seem to have an excess of kittens here. Which should be an oxymoron, but isn’t when we already have ten-plus cats. These guys need to be adopted or go to Seaca, and the former is vastly preferable, so. Does anyone in the LA area want a kitten? I would prefer to place the black pair, Spook and Spectre (Spook is the slightly fluffier one), together as they seem to be quite attached to each other, but it’s not a requirement. Please message me if you’re interested.

Also, if folks could signal boost this, it would be greatly appreciated, given that I barely have a hundred followers.

Also also, I have a ton of video of these guys that I’ll be posting over the next few days, because they are adorable.

Signal boost for L.A. area folks: any of you need a kitten? They’re very fuzzy and cute!

You know what would be great? A tumblr post to help in a natural disaster that doesn’t fucking berate people with lines like “REBLOG THIS OR UNFOLLOW ME,” or “DONATE OR YOU DON’T HAVE A HEART,” or other bullshit. Here’s a list of places you can donate to help out in the Philippines. 

World Food Program

The Philippines Red Cross

BLACK GIRLS CODE: THE SERIES is a unique documentary web series that will highlight the importance of introducing young girls of color into technology.  Why is this important?

Because little black girls grow up being isolated, pushed and marginalized when it comes to science, technology, education and mathematics.

Because little black girls need to know how amazing they are.

Support & Join the MOVEMENT OF BLACK GIRLS CODE. They are creating the future pioneers of our generation.

Watch the WebSeries Teaser: http://youtu.be/66kD701D6Cc

STEM needs, and I am not using that term lightly, a critical mass of people who aren’t part of the white brogrammer echo chamber.

So, while we were at the block party having a great time, some useless thieving douche got into the garage and stole my awesome bike. The bike with the baskets and flowers and a witch’s broom on it! The one I use to get everywhere on in the city of Chicago. The one I carried a Christmas tree on! And do my grocery shopping with. That I ride along the lakefront for Bike the Drive. And carry plants from the garden center…my mobility and freedom…I loved that bike.
I’m super pissed off and really sad.
So, if you see someone riding it and they don’t look like me…or if you see it on one of those asshole thief ‘junk’ ‘collectors’ trucks, please feel free to punch them in the gut, cuz it’s where they punched me by stealing my bike…

I know how PeeWee Herman felt when Francis stole his bike:-(

Hey. Chicago. Let’s get Jill Thompson her bike back…

Attn: Chicago

Signal boosting. Help get Jill Thompson her bike back!

Extra Life: Collecting Donations for Seattle Children's Hospital

brokenponycutiemark:

I’m still collecting funds to donate to Seattle Children’s Hospital. My part of the deal is to game until I fall asleep, and blog the group’s shenanigans.

And if locals donate, you can come play with us! The new Battlestar Galactica expansion allows SEVEN players. The new Hobbit adventure game allows FIFTEEN.
