A mentally disabled man was robbed of some of his most precious items. Full story here. Also on reddit. People on Facebook are planning on sending him Superman loot, which is pretty damn cool.
Get the word out! Let’s help this guy recover his items from this asshole.
Ways you can help:
1) If you have some extra action figures, or want to buy one or two, you can donate them.
2) If you are one of our many talented artists, you can sketch something Super and personalize it to Mike.
3) If you can’t send any items, and are a horrible artist like I am, you can send a nice note or card to Mike.
All items can be mailed to Keith Howard, 920 Express Dr, Belleville, IL 62223. Keith is working on contacting Mike, and will deliver the Super Care Package in person, dressed as Superman :) If you can’t help simply reblog this to get the word out.
I’ll say that again: If you define pro-life as preventing abortions, Planned Parenthood is the most effective pro-life organization in the history of the world. No, it doesn’t give teenagers the idea of having sex. That idea comes to them quite naturally, thank you very much. What Planned Parenthood does, more comprehensively than anyone else, is to distribute the means and knowledge to control your risk of getting pregnant when you don’t want to be pregnant. And those two things, combined with pressure to exercise that control assiduously, are the surest way to prevent abortions. If you wait till women are already unhappily pregnant, you’re too late.
I’m very happy to say I finally just signed up for my first ever race, the Damon Runyon 5K at Yankee Stadium. I’ve been trying to get into running on and off for, well, a long time. Never made it stick. I’ve started running again this summer and to make it stick I’ve decided I need to sign up for some races. Won’t want to waste the money by not showing, and dammit, if I’m there I’ll want to do well! Wish me luck!
Also, it is a charity race (for cancer research). The fund raising goal is very reasonable (only $60), so if anyone has a dollar or two to spare, my donor page is here.
As part of the celebrations because Buenos Aires was declared 2011 World Book Capital the local artist Marta Minujin created her version of the Babel’s Tower. It was made with about 30,000 books from all over the world. Once the exhibition finishes the book will be donated to a library.
I swear on everything that this isn’t a bullshit contest to gain followers. I’ve been wanting an SLR forever and I ended up getting two. One from my cousin, and the other from my mom. I was thinking about returning/selling my second one, but I wouldn’t be getting the same amount or more than what it was originally priced. I’ve already talked to my mom about me giving it away, she doesn’t mind. But besides all this, who the hell doesn’t like free stuff?
Here’s how this will work:
You do not have to follow me. I don’t want any followers that don’t actually like my blog. I do ask of you to kindly check out my blog though. If you like it cool, if not, run along now.
Likes do not count for anything, only reblogs will count. You can reblog this as many times as you’d like.
Do not create any extra blogs or whatever, I will be creeping on your archives.
Winner will be chosen like as if it were a raffle drawing.
Winner will be contacted via ask box, so make sure that you have that open.
This will be over on May 27th, and the winner will be announced (possibly) on the 29th.
I am doing this basically to make someone else happy and also because I accidentally deleted the other contest I was doing. Please don’t participate if you already own an SLR, but you can if you’d like I guess. I really don’t care if you live in Narnia, anyone is eligible to enter.
Here’s what the winner will get:
18-35mm Kit lens.
EOS digital disc instructions.
The camera is brand new.
If you think this is “stupid” of me to do or anything of that sort, than just ignore it. It’s that simple.
Q. “Why would you just giveaway an expensive camera to a stranger?”
A. TO MAKE THEM HAPPY.
Q. “How do we know you aren’t bullshitting us?”
A. To make a fake contest just for followers is stupid as fuck, plus, I have a picture of me holding both the cameras.
This is how I spent one pretty awesome weekend in April. We painted this HUGE rocket mural at MS 131. So happy they thought to take time-lapse photos of the project… seeing the transformation is pretty sweet.
Yes, that’s how it happens, America. One day your teenage son is banging the head cheerleader. The next, he hears a few bars of Chris Colfer’s seductive warbling, and wham! Suddenly he’s “thirsty” for that particular “brand.” Of penis. Homosexuality – it’s exactly like walking past a Cinnabon.
