Some days I feel really torn between “kink has amazing potential to create transcendent psychological, even spiritual, experiences” and “kink turns me way the hell on.”

I mean, not that these have to be mutually exclusive.

"I want to create a scene that shakes me out of shallow intellectualization and forces me to draw upon the unbreakable inner strength at my core.  …Also, there should be butt stuff."

This pretty much sums up how I feel about writing erotica.

I watched episodes five and six, “Mukozuke” and “Futamono”. Hannibal playing harpsichord reminded me of a t-shirt my ex had, and probably still has, bearing the legend, “I’m the harpsichord player your mother warned you about”.

You know, it’s not that I don’t like slash. I like m/m fic, fannish or pro. I’m happy to see new 00Q and still want to write my Skyfall fics. It’s just that I got so bleeding tired of the J*hnl*ck craziness.

i’d like to thank not only god but also jesus

Aww, thank you! <3

I keep sneaking back into this one between chaos moments in real life. This next chapter is going to be fun!

And by “fun” we hope Kryptaria means “smutty”.

Pepper watches a Vine of himself and rocks out to his own singing… and then tries to preen his computer self.

This may be the best cockatiel video I have ever seen.

This is Bandit.
He is a pineapple green cheek conure. He has been at my local PetCo for at least a year (as long as I have lived in this area). He is quite timid and shy and (behaviorally) shows signs of abuse. One of his nails has been ripped out, though it has now healed and doesn’t bother him much. I have visited him every single time I’ve ever been in this PetCo over the entirety of my time here. He’s gotten to know me really well. He’ll come to the front of the cage and chirp at me and play back and forth on his toys, showing off. The best thing he does is perch on that ball and spin around - it makes me laugh so he does it frequently. I have handled him a few times and he is as sweet as can be with me. He listens to me if his exploring bites and nibbles get too hard or if he’s playing with something I don’t want him to (i.e. my necklace). 

Some background.
One of the employees has told me a bit about his time there. There are only two people who work there that are able to handle him without being severely bitten and him flying away. I am apparently the only customer who has ever handled him where he exhibits playful behavior and hasn’t bitten. I’m also the only person who has shown any interest in him for months. They recently got in a pair of blue quaker parrots that over took a Sun Conure that had been in on of their cages. I have not heard anything of what happened to that bird and no one will say when I ask, they just look forlorn - I’m assuming that means he didn’t get a home. I am scared this will happen to this little guy. The employee I have corresponded with many times has exhibited large amounts of worry for his well-being with having been there so long. Going so far as to say that I could easily get his price dropped fairly significantly if it would mean I could take him home and he’d be safe.

I have wanted a conure for a long time and have done extensive research on them over the last 2-3 years. I would love to be able to bring this guy home, even if just to give him a safe environment and save him from whatever awaits him being stuck in this small cage for so long in this store. I see people coming in constantly looking at the parakeets and almost always one is taken home, but people walk by this little guy and the cockatiels and the quakers constantly with not so much as a glance. 

My point.
The reason I am making this post is to ask tumblr for help. I’m not expecting anyone to jump in and immediately make this possible. Or, let alone, really any help at all, to be honest. But, I figured I would ask anyways because this little guy needs help and I really want to help him. So, if anyone could or would be willing to donate so I can get him and some basic things he needs, I would greatly appreciate it.

Total.
The sub-total I have come up with is $565 ($610 with tax). The reason I cannot pay this, aside from maybe $5 right now, is because I am moving into an apartment with my girlfriend and searching for a job. All the money I have is going to the apartment - security deposits, first/last month rent. Both apartments we applied for are pet friendly, so he would be allowed to remain with me after I move. I will be nowhere in the area until probably Christmas as of April 28th and something could happen to him by then. I want to prevent that. 

If you can donate absolutely any amount, I and Bandit would be honored.

'Invoice'.
This is a list of the costs for things so you can see why it amounts to $610.

  • $200 is for Bandit himself (I spoke with the manager and his price is at a 50% discount).
  • $160 is for the cage.
  • $20 is for the food.

In reality that is all he would immediately need (cage comes with two perches and food/water dishes - I’m sure I can ask to take his toys he currently has too). So, if I can get to $380 he will be safe and away from PetCo. The other $230 is for perches, toys, treats, a play gym, and a sleep cage.

  • $45-125 for toys and perches.
  • $30 for the play gym.
  • $38 for the sleep cage.

Thank yous.
Though I am not the best artist, I sketch a lot (mostly manga and animals) and dabble in painting (watercolors mostly). If you are willing to donate I would be happy to give you a commission of your choice (I can post some of my work if people are interested). I also love to write and if you’d like a fanfic (rating and topic of your choice) I would be willing to write something in return as well (I am in the process of writing two books if you would like excerpts to see my writing style).

Also, I am sketching a few Bandit sketches (may paint one or two) to make prints to send to anyone who is able to donate.

Deadline.
I am pretty much set to move into either apartment - the only thing left is to choose which one and, well, move. I will be driving to whichever apartment with moving truck in tow on April 28th. I would need this money by then to get him out and moved safely with us. I will be completely moved in on May 1st. I will not be returning until Christmas… If I will be. This is my last chance to get this little guy out.

How To.
If you are willing to donate, I have a paypal account you can send any amount to. You can choose “I am sending money to family or friends” and type in my e-mail (hmwolf13@gmail.com) so that you do not have to pay a fee when sending me anything. 

There is also a paypal donate button and a GoFundMe button on my blog.

If you have any questions or you feel there is something I may need to add please, please, please do not hesitate to message me. I am desperate to get this little guy out because I dread what could happen to him if he’s stuck there for much longer. Please, if you cannot donate, reblog so that people can see this and hopefully help. 

If you read all of this, thank you so much. If I cannot raise the money I will implore with anyone in the area (Sumter, SC) to try and get him out. He’s too cute and sweet to ‘suddenly disappear’ like his sun conure brethren.

I currently have $522 added to the fund. That’s about 86% of the goal! Which is amazing and I am so speechless and honored and how much everyone has helped. I only need $88 more! So close! Any help will be greatly appreciated. Whether it’s a donation or a reblog!

Gonna give a little money. You guys should too if you can! Almost there!

Boosting this again because the OP is close to making her goal!

Paris Review – Kate Beaton on ‘Hark! A Vagrant’, Nicole Rudick

So hey, I just discovered this fun interview of Kate Beaton by the Paris Review and thought I’d share it, though it’s a couple years old.

*cries for a hundred years about Stan Lee’s continual enthusiasm and gracious love of his fans even after all these years. He never became jaded or bitter. He still just feels honored to be there*

There’s a happy man who has spent his life well. I’m not even a real comics fan, but when I catch Stan Lee in his movie appearances, I’m all “YAAAAAAY THERE’S THE MAN”.

"No writing is wasted. Did you know that sourdough from San Francisco is leavened partly by a bacteria called lactobacillus sanfrancisensis? It is native to the soil there, and does not do well elsewhere. But any kitchen can become an ecosystem. If you bake a lot, your kitchen will become a happy home to wild yeasts, and all your bread will taste better. Even a failed loaf is not wasted. Likewise, cheese makers wash the dairy floor with whey. Tomato gardeners compost with rotten tomatoes. No writing is wasted: the words you can’t put in your book can wash the floor, live in the soil, lurk around in the air. They will make the next words better."

This is Bérénice Marlohe, who played the latest Bond Girl, Severine, in Skyfall.

It’s from a cool image-based article about the power of makeup. (x)

So if you think you aren’t pretty enough for even that one person you like, just remember that NO ONE looks like a Bond Girl in real life.

So, this is kind of interesting and timely. For me, wearing makeup feels like I’m no longer in the right body — like I’m cosplaying a stranger. It’s wrong.

My gut reaction is that those two pictures can’t *possibly* be the same person.

I also think of the post I reblogged recently, the Cumberbatch fan who met him at one of the Oz comic-cons, then looked at his online images again and realized they’d all been “improved” by airbrushing.

I don’t wear make-up either. I’d rather like to, but there are two factors: It takes time to put on and take off, and I have very sensitive skin. Even the most hypoallergenic product makes my eyes itch; I can’t put it on and forget about it, I can always feel it there. So I only use colored lip glosses, which brighten up my face while they protect my (also sensitive) lips.

Add-on: I have contacted many local shelters/rescues to see if they are able to take him on. But either due to being understaffed, at maximum capacity, don’t work with birds, or insufficient funds to pay to get him out (yes they would have to buy him to get him out) none within a 1.5 hour radius are able to. So, this is why I have come to tumblr asking for help, as a last resort.

“Do what you love” disguises the fact that being able to choose a career primarily for personal reward is a privilege, a sign of socioeconomic class. Even if a self-employed graphic designer had parents who could pay for art school and co-sign a lease for a slick Brooklyn apartment, she can bestow DWYL as career advice upon those covetous of her success.

If we believe that working as a Silicon Valley entrepreneur or a museum publicist or a think-tank acolyte is essential to being true to ourselves, what do we believe about the inner lives and hopes of those who clean hotel rooms and stock shelves at big-box stores? The answer is: nothing.
