  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $400,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson

HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE Let’s say it’s 6.15pm and you’re going home (alone of course), after an unusually hard day on the job. You’re really tired, upset and frustrated. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself..!! NOW HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE… Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can perhaps buy precious time to get themselves to a phone and dial 911. Rather than sharing another joke please contribute by broadcasting this which can save a person’s life!  Be prepared and become part of the solution.

This picture reminded me of the picture in 1965

“Hog-spitting – not just spitting,” Tonja Bulley emphatically clarifies.

“He just hog-spit at my baby. He hog-spit. He took everything out of him and spit in my daughter’s face. She is a minor. That’s the absolute worst thing you can do, when you spit on another human being. She was just saying ‘No justice, no peace’ and he hog-spit (at) and then smacked my baby. At that time — there was no more being peaceful.”

Bulley and her daughter, Brandy were released from jail last night after being arrested by police outside the St. Louis Rams game the previous day after a violent clash with football fans.

As the Rams were completing an impressive 28-26 victory over the Super Bowl champions Seattle Seahawks, Tonja and Brandy were outside the stadium participating in a non-violent protest calling for justice for Mike Brown, and the immediate arrest of his killer, Darren Wilson.

Tonja, known affectionately to her friends as “Tiny,” continued:

“We were peacefully protesting. We were saying something that this big, tall White man did not like. He should’ve been locked up, and they did not lock him up. One slapped my daughter and another hit her with his fist. Another woman threw her drink on me – and I retaliated. I’m not coming out to fight, but I have the right to protect myself.”

Tiny would eventually get punched and knocked to the ground. “I got hit by a couple people. I have a mark behind my ear.” She was initially charged with two felonies for throwing punches after the initial altercation. No violent Rams fans were arrested.

She says the racial double-standards were apparent: “We had a right to protest without anybody interfering. When the White people protest, there are no problems. Nobody is spitting on them. When we try to do it, the media goes around and acts like we started (the fighting.) We did not start it. I peacefully protest every day in Ferguson, and it’s never a problem.”

In Ferguson, Tiny and Brandy have been protesting since Brown was killed in August, and have become unofficial members of the Lost Voices—a spirited and well-known group of young leaders who led Sunday’s protest.

Last Night in Ferguson (10.21.14): A state senator was arrested (and mama may have been legally packing), one of the lead organizers, nettaaaaaaaa, was roughed up by police, and one of the main sources of footage/live feeds, Rebel Z, was detained in what seems to have been an intimidation and straight up harassment tactic. The police are out of control, and it’s only getting worse. If you think this is over, you need to look again. #staywoke #farfromover

Ferguson is still happening. Are you still paying attention?

Tune into Z’s UStream tonight to watch developments live.

Let’s address the fallacy that a capacity for empathy is a necessary quality in a friend. A narcissist may also be a valuable companion.

Hello! I’m working on saving up about $1.5k+ to go toward paying off medical bills, getting a few Christmas presents for friends, and saving up for a dog (reasons for a dog can be found here).

This is my new commission post for the time being! These pictures are only samples of what I can make! I have to make these products from scratch if you order, and you can choose colors you would prefer most. If you’re not sure about a color option, feel free to ask me!

1. Paypal payments only.

2. You must pay for the item before I send it, and if you are able, paying in full before I start is acceptable. If you are one of the people seeking custom commissions, however, I will ask for a non-refundable downpayment to cover materials, as I cannot resell a custom commission easily as I can the items listed here. See below for details.*

3. No refunds—I try my best with the product at hand (and if there is some issue with it, I’d like to know), but I cannot control what happens in the mail. I do my best to make sure things ship safely (packages not getting wet, et cetera).

4. Please be patient and wait for me to make these. Some take only a few hours, others take a few days. And if I have a lot of orders, it can take a couple of weeks. It is much longer for custom commissions, which can be a couple of months.

5. I can decline a commission at any time for any reason.

6. U.S. shipping prices are included in price listings. If you are interested but live outside of the U.S., please message me with your country and we’ll work out the price of shipping and packages. (:

I will try my best to finish these as promptly as I can. I’m quite hopeful about making my goal before the year is out, and if I do, I would love to hold a giveaway of crocheted products!

PRICES

(pictured above)
Fluffy octopus or squid: $23/each
Miniature octopus or squid: $8/each
Seahorse: $8/each
Cat charm: $10/each
Cuttlefish: $8/each
Turtle (regular): $12/each
Sea Turtle: $20/each
Rabbit: $17/each

And because not everything could fit:

Bird Charm: $10/each

Butterfly Charm: $10/each


Pigs: $12/each
(If you happen to know what a rappig is/are a Tales game series fan, I can make rappigs as well for the same price each)

SPECIAL: If you order a bundle (shipped to the same place and ordered all at the same time) of $25+ worth of amigurumi from me, I will throw in a free octopus or squid phone charm of your color choice. Pictures below:



*Custom Commissions
I am only allowing for one or two of these at a time, and they can’t be overly complicated due to some problems I am having with my right arm. Ripping out something and redoing it several times to gauge it can be strenuous, as opposed to objects I’ve been making that already have patterns I’ve created and memorized. But if you want a custom commission, please send me an ask and we’ll discuss whether or not it is possible for me to do it/if I have time/the price. I do like making something I haven’t before to liven things up/break the monotony. (:
