this is The Very Best thing I've seen all week.

As I tire of the spin and media focus on crap subjects, occasionally I find gems worthy of all the polish and light we can throw on them. This is one.. my friend focuses on injustice, human trafficking, border town politics, and much more. Please consider helping her continue to put out such important work.
You can read her works for just $5 a month...you've spent more than that on a crappy newspaper or a glossy mag, I know I have. Donations can be made Here.

This is by far, the most beautiful opening sequence to a tv series that I've ever seen:

Before we go blaming All The Crazy on Kansas alone with the recent Anti-Anti-Discrimination Bill, here's apparently the head of the Hydra:

Cornerstone in Idaho, the Kansas Family Policy Council, and the Center for Arizona Policy, which supports the bill there, are all part of a network of 38 state “family policy councils” pressing for these laws under the umbrella of Citizen Link, the advocacy arm of the conservative Christian powerhouse Focus on the Family. Citizen Link says its aim is to “help citizens understand and passionately engage in policy issues relevant to families from a foundation firmly established in a biblical worldview.”

Now.. what else can we do in KANSAS RIGHT NOW?

Stolen from Steve Maack

KANSANS--A few things to consider in opposing HB 2453 which legalizes discrimination:
1. Petitions are OK for getting people to sign on to a cause relatively easily, but they're not substitutes for contacting state legislators directly. Flood inboxes and answering machines with emails and calls.
2. The bill is currently in the senate judiciary committee, so right now contact the members of that committee: Senators Jeff King, Greg Smith, David Haley, Terry Bruce, Forrest Knox, Garrett Love, Julia Lynn, Carolyn McGinn, Mike Peterson, Pat Pettey, Mary Pilcher-Cook. You can contact your own senator, but he or she can only do something if it gets out of committee first.
3. I have heard a few rumors that now that senators smell the controversy surrounding this bill, they might want it to die in committee to save them the indignity of having to vote on it one way or the other. So the time to act is now while it's still in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
4. This Slate article (http://www.slate.com/blogs/outward/2014/02/13/kansas_anti_gay_segregation_bill_is_an_abomination.html), while I agree with its premise, says that the bill is virtually sure the pass the senate. That's not true. Not if we fight it.
5. Rep. Brunk's Eagle op-ed piece (http://www.kansas.com/2014/02/13/3284932/steve-brunk-bill-protects-religious.html) just sounds defensive and ridiculous, and I think senators realize that. Exploit that. There's unlikely any campaign donation gain from passing this bill, so if senators see that supporting the bill might cost them votes, they might oppose it.
Sorry if this sounds preachy, but there's a lot at stake here for Kansas and its residents. Thanks, if you made it all the way through this.

I am LOVING this new series True Detective with Woody Harrelson and (still gaunt) Matthew McConnaughey. It's dark and gritty and brilliant for both of them.

On a similar tack.. I put off watching The Dallas Buyers Club, but finally caved, and I'm very glad I did. It was very, very good.. and yes, brought back some memories, but we need to remember just how far we have come from HIV+ and AIDS being a death sentence.

The upcoming new 300 flick looks interesting. Female lead? Oh yes, please.

Have you contacted YOUR representatives today?

Tom Hiddleston and The Muppets Most Wanted!!!

Another Hiddleston sighting for Jaguar!



It's no secret that I only watch the SuperBowl for the ads. And the halftime show.
Bruno Mars was FABULOUS.

I thoroughly enjoy two hours or so without the "ask your doctor if n is right for you".

Here were my faves yesterday:

Most Touching from Microsoft



Cutest, just watch the commercial and skip the commentary after it.



Matrix redux with Morpheus singing opera from KIA



When the Doberhuahua attacks Sarah McLachlan's guitar!



VW Engineer Gets His Wings... I loved!!



And best trailer commercial goes to 24: Live Another Day

I've joined a friending frenzy, and although I'm not sure exactly how they work, I'm game to try. Everyone is welcome.

Kiev is a frightening place right now. How about those texts?

I'm thinking that getting a helmet just might be on the list for things good to have around in case of necessary uprising.
redheadfae: (just hold on - world)
Hey friends! Put out the word for me, and start saving your grubby old Tshirts for me. White with stains are okay (appreciated if they are washed first), just collect them up for me. You know you have them... help me put them to good use. Muchas gracias!

The Carnival School has the class list up now. The hours don't look very convenient for anything I'd like to take, darn it!
Please remember that if you sign up, put me as your referral, I'll get credit for my own class.

I ran my new little scooter round the block.. so cute. It has a gas leak, though.. probably why it was so cheap... but I'm positive we can figure it out. The guy said he rebuilt the carb.

Beautiful day! So glad to be here and healthy today.

True HOT bevvies on demand are wonderful.

When I feel a bit down about my situation (they "chose another candidate" so I did not get the job), I look at stuff like this and I have hope for all of us.

20th Century Fox gave him 25k for a movie trailer budget, and this is what he did instead.

And in Detroit, a design grad comes up with a coat that turns into a sleeping bag to keep homeless folks warm. Now they hire women from the shelter to make them and give them a chance to get out.

My life looks pretty damn good from here. I may have lost a lot, and gained a lot of humility, but I still have a roof, food and more than I've ever had in my life.
redheadfae: (new hair dec 2013)
Damn, it's annoying that some video embeds don't work on LJ.
I'm not one for the Cute Kid With Amazing Voice videos, they don't move me at all. I know, coal black lump for a heart.
Except this one. Chills, people.

Pablo is all stretched out right now, a good sign that he's feeling better. His shaved inner leg is a bit bruised and probably sore. But.. he's home and left a good size urine clump in the litterbox. Keeping an eye on that is the best I can do to make sure he's not having problems, as the antibiotics are making him sleepy. As if one could tell if a cat is sleepier than usual.

I had a less than stellar showing for the sale, but those who did help out really made a difference and I so appreciate it. You know who you are and THANK YOU SO MUCH.

With my bit of boo-hoo bah humbug, our decorations are limited this year and not as festive as usual. But, I don't mind all that much, it would just make me even more melancholy. I'm just grateful to have been able to get my truck fixed ($650+) and Pablo well.

But anyway.. look at these old photos of the old Cincinnati library!
redheadfae: (new hair dec 2013)
Go on, share it! A donation of a tin of cat food to a shelter for every view. I miss Pablo very much today and this made me all weepy, too.

redheadfae: (new hair dec 2013)
Oh.. the lovely ladies of Advanced Style are back on my radar, and looking better than ever in the lower photos.

Keeping up, the truck did run $304 more for all the welding.. if you need and exhaust/automotive welding work, I definitely recommend Rich Johnson in N. Lawrence, he of the home-built local Batmobile fame.


Pablo did not get to come home for the weekend. Poor kitty, he's still having troubles. The bill has reached frightening levels for me so I'm posting several of my inventory items up for sale on my FB. Please, if you head over there, have caution to not connect my blog here to my FB postings. Thank you!

Basically, any orders can be placed with free shipping until about 10pm Sunday night, as long as you go personally through me and not the website.

C'mon Pablo get well!

In exciting news, Bette Midler is going to play Mae West!

And this is wonderful: Today, I Met God. I'd say he nailed it!

If that isn't enough Good Feels for you, let me point out 28 Most Iconic Feminist Moments of 2013. I don't know which I like the best, really. Perhaps Mindy.

Even though shit has hit the fan and Pablo is still under observation at the vet *sob* the infection was really bad... things are getting better.
I have a very good shot at a temp position for the Golf Course Superintendents' Association. I'll let that sink in for a minute. Okay, you can stop laughing now. Because part of the assignment is 5 days in Florida for the conference. In Feb. You know, when we're about to go batshit crazy from winter.
Pay isn't great, but... better than the about to be cut off emergency unemployment.. especially when there's diddly squat for assignments and jobs right now.

I'm having a sale on several products on Facebook right now, so if you're interested drop me a note, and I'll clue you in. One thing on sale is the Soft and Silky Shave Lotion and Protective spray, for $25 (and tax/shipping) or $10 for just the Lotion. Also Clean & Simple spray toy cleanser, and the Pear flavor Embrace lube.
I'm offering deals on everything that is ordered online, because I really need a boost this month. Order deadline for Xmas delivery is the 16th. Thank you for any and all support.

I have to post this, just to get a momentary lift.



And that led me to this:

After much deliberation and a near chickening out this morning, this happened, cut to hide the cut: )My eyes checked out okay, but the astigmatism has doubled, which explains my weird "shadowing" vision. Good to know it's correctable, although it's back to glasses if I want to see very well.Should I go for these glasses? )
redheadfae: (me Oct 2013 hair change)
So the truck has to go back because the tie rod fix did not take care of the noise, and after leaving it all day Friday, the conclusion is that it needs a new ball joint. *sigh*
And then Jbird had a near flat tire that went back down a second time, so we took THAT in and he had a big nail in it. Thankfully, fixable and no new tire needed.

So, Saturday.. the Choose Joy seminar. I had wondered how 'choosing Joy' fitted in with the Train Your Brain bit, and this pieced it together for me. Basically, how Train Your Brain works is to get you out of the Cycle of Perpetual Sameness (negative thoughts, negative actions, negative results). This goes a bit deeper than simple Positive Thinking, which can feel bloody false. Think of it this way.. say you buy a Ford Fusion. You've never really noticed them before, but suddenly there are dozens of them out on the road. You wave at each other, feel a little lift and notice more and more of them when you're out.
Same sort of thing: there aren't MORE FFs on the road, but now your subconscious has raised them into your conscious mind and you see them apart from all the other vehicles out there. So.. getting out of a shitty mindset involves training the conscious mind to see positives and feel the emotion of being lifted up by them, then the subconscious strives to find more matches and you do start seeing more, thereby feeling better. how this happens )
Then we spent the afternoon on Vision Boards.. more on that to come.

Dad's home and well.

Here's a thought, waking in the middle of the night is normal, not insomnia. Well, if we lived a few hundred years ago, that is.
"I tell them that what they are experiencing is a throwback to the bi-modal sleep pattern."

Here's something fun: Recycle your broken sex toy! You'll get a $10 credit with Scarlet Girl. But please come back and see me ;) I've got the new We-Vibe 4 and the Leaf Vitality 2, or at least I will have by next week. I'm really thrilled to see these new toys, because, you know, fully submersible, USB-chargable, and remote control.. yah! Plus.. new men's body goodies,

V day launch

I've got to get some parties on the calendar, I got the blues in November and need to get ramped up for the upcoming holiday/pre-Valentine season. (Of course, my dear friends are welcome to see anything without a party, just ask)
