It’s been a little while since I’ve seen anyone post *news* about Ferguson - like it just sorta faded into the background, wasn’t the issue of the hour anymore.

This needs to not fade. 

So, apparently the Ferguson PD is getting sued, for what I think is, all things considered, a modest sum.  (What exactly is the dollar value of one’s basic human rights?  “More than could possibly be paid” seems fair, and I think this number hits that, at least for the individuals being sued.)

Also, one of the witnesses to Michael Brown’s death wrote a rap song about it, and recorded a music video.  I would feel a little weird about this if it were not out there for free, but it is, and it’s worth a listen.  (NSFW language)

Some police got fired.  (Why the entire department hasn’t been suspended pending investigation, I don’t know - or rather, I suspect I do know, and it scares the hell out of me.)

"No one will miss me", "I’m better off dead"

after-crisis:

When I worked at a non-profit that handled suicide prevention, I had access to the donation records. Each month, a specific man donated 15$ to our organization. It was like clockwork.. same day, same man, he had been doing this for over 4 years. It always seemed odd to me but I never questioned it… until I saw a note attached one month. "For Noah- Dad"

his donation was once his child’s allowance.

I can promise you, they would miss you for the rest of their lives.

This is a friend’s nephew. This is all the information I have right now. As updates come I will give them, but for now, I’m asking for a SIGNAL BOOST!

Please verify.  Can find absolutely no news or police reports about this event.

There are No News reports because he was found August 16th. He was with a family member who didn’t notify his mother of his whereabouts.
AUGUST 29, 2014 He was found before the media could or would intervene.
Again, Thank you ALL for the reblogs but Steven has been home since August 16th.

I just remembered the time I was like thirteen and into roleplaying on a Redwall forum but I wanted to join the discussion forum my mom was a part of because I was old enough to talk with grownups about grownup things like theology, no really! and she finally agreed

and then my first post was like

"hi i’m a squirrel lol" *climbs tree*

I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly.  :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy!  You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through.  You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way!  Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!

Love your art, love yourself!

so for some ungodly reason tumblr staff decided it’d be a good idea to allow flashy gifs or incredibly bright images to be a background for the login screen. a lot of people i know are photosensitive and prone to headaches or other, worse things that can be caused by this. so naturally i wrote a small script to disable those completely. hopefully permanently.
you can find it here. you’ll need the browser extension/addon stylish for it to work, which you should be able to get from the website itself if i remember correctly. hope it helps someone o7

This is seriously so important. I suffer epilepsy and am extremly photosensitive, as I am sure a lot of other epileptics are. Please, spread this around, you could seriously save someone.

For our epileptic followers

Hi everyone! I know this isn’t a funny gif post, but I’m extremely photosensitive and know that many others with fibro are as well. 

USEFUL

Also remember: If you haven’t already, email tumblr (support at tumblr dot com) to point out that the flashing animated things on the login screen are hugely disruptive to a lot of users. (I’m not generally photosensitive or epileptic, just autistic, but I can barely find the login window on the animated login screen.)

I really like how varied Hussie’s art is. I mean, you can see it in all the different comics he’s done, but let’s just take a look at how he draws the same character.

I mean, isn’t that just cool?

Same guy drawing it.

It’s not even like a progression as his art improves. It’s just different styles he can do at any time.
