ICE stopped a man in his car outside his home this morning. When he refused to open his door without seeing a warrant (which ICE refused to show), ICE busted a back window and dragged the man from the car. When a bystander asked about a warrant, ICE threatened to shoot her.
YouTube, Etsy, scam
Wow, found out a YouTube "reviewer" tried to run a strong arm scam against a crafter friend of mine on Etsy.
Fortunately this individual was sloppy enough to literally spell out the terms of their scam in an email chain.
They wanted to return an item (outside the crafters return policy) in return for a positive review on YouTube to her "audience of 7000 subscribers". Then proceeded to threaten that a good review was dependent on the friend's compliance.
I've been quietly trying to put together thoughts on a #postcapitalist transition framework, but to be honest looking at the current state of things, maybe just writing the words "Burn it all, children " would be a more prudent contribution.
assistance request, discussion of shitty living situations
So, uh, we desperately need help. There's a lot of stuff going on and I figure I'll go over it:
First, @pillowcat and I are currently living in a *shit* situation. It's a house that got like 1/10th of the way through a remodel and then abandoned, the toilet barely works, the hot water barely works, the floors are nasty. We can barely afford to eat b/c I'm disabled and haven't managed to get on disability yet, and Tess is having trouble job hunting. And it's REALLY hard for me to get medical supplies down here. We really, really want to get out of this situation and out of this state but we need enough money to eat and on top of it some padding to allow Tess to go job hunt in the area we want to move to.
Secondly, my GFs, @Tryn and @Siruco are currently in the process of getting kicked out of their house. They have nowhere to go besides to a similarly shitty situation that'd put them well away from all of their support systems and any chance of getting back out. So we want to get them in with us in a better situation, but first Tess and I have to be in a good enough situation to help that happen. Please, please help. paypal.me/nautilee every lil bit helps, and please please boost this around. We're all pretty desperate.
We've never given up on the dream of making the animated series, and we're not shy about that fact. It just makes me feel some kind of way to know that we'll always be looked at as lesser for that fact.
On the flipside, there's a *lot* of people on the same frequency with us, who see the comic and of their own volition ask us where they can watch the series, or how soon we think we'll get it on screen.

We'll build that bridge when we get to it.
