US Pol - "An Open Letter to ‘Socialists’ Who Might be Fronting for the Democratic Party" Show more
💣 💣 💣
(Black Agenda Report: 8/22/18)
"Here’s my message to shiny new socialists: Beware of the Democratic Party, as well as all of its institutions and fronts. You will never take over the Democratic Party. It will co-opt you first, or it will self destruct rather than become a party of the people..." --Quetzal Caceres
US Pol, N. Carolina GP In Local Races Show more
"This is a historic year for the North Carolina Green Party! Not only did we win ballot access for the first time, but we’re also running our first Green Party candidates on our new GP ballot line. We are the only left-wing political party to be on the NC ballot since the 1980s!..." - 8/16/18

Donate, volunteer, or boost if you can. Kenneth Mejia is one of the good ones. And not that it would matter to my stubborn self, but there is no GOPper in this race. None. Zip. Nada.

Kinda' getting into writing out desc. of my art, in case ppl w/visual issues want at least a vague idea of what I'm posting. Sorry if it's dull for every1 else. You can view my pieces *w/o* all the rambling here, though:
Over there, your company will be just an occasional Aunt Joke, + info on some of the picture sources.
I don't make money from this so please don't sic any corporate lawyers on me.
Have a great week, Masto. [raises mug] ☕️ 🥐

Awash in black walnuts and those bronze-colored-interior figs. Woo! It really IS Fall, isn't it? 😋
Today, making fig jam. Hopefully on Sunday I'll make walnut crescent cookies again. Normally these are cost-prohibitive because you need barrels of walnuts for one recipe... but now I've got those. Anyway, here's some almost-arty shots of graduated-color walnut halves and the cookies... from the 2016 haul.
Theft Of An Animal Show more
I need to stop for a minute and appreciate just how big of a jerk you have to be to *steal* a kitten from a shelter when we're awash right now with freebies you could get almost anywhere for the asking. 🙄
It's in the news right now that someone actually did this, then sold the animal for money. A 13-week-old kitten. I'm no fan of the prison system, or poverty, or the way we handle drug addiction. But I'd still like to kick the thief in the nads. Twice.
[groan] Was up until 1 AM this morning frantically backing more things up... because this creaky OS X is giving signs that it's not going to be functioning much longer. (The dreaded half-wavy screen has appeared twice in the last 24 hrs.)
I was hoping to muddle through with it until year's end, but you can't have everything. [shrug] Tomorrow it's off to the repair shop.
I'm also wayyyyy behind on following people back. 😳 Sorry, People. It's nothing you did. It's yardwork season. Leaves are coming down much earlier than they usually do here, probably because of late-summer heat blasts.
It's really great how as late as 2016 you can still find fans compiling Favorites lists while employing snide remarks about Host No. 1 right out of the gate.
🙄 🙄 🙄
I'm sure his list is very interesting, but honestly if you can't at least bury your petty bullshit at the end of your treatise, I don't think I need to watch more than 45 seconds of it, Dickweed.
YouTube comments are still so bad they make God cry. But I did appreciate the Typo Demons providing the phrase "Suck diverse music" earlier today.
US Pol - GP, NY State Show more
I haven't got the heart to visit Le Birdhouse and see if Nixon or even ONE supporter of hers will take 5 mins. away from their endless war w/Dem establishment blowhards in order to link to this. Fuck it. This pot of coffee isn't gonna' drink itself.
New pic is up, .social. Hope ya' like. :)
#MastoArt The trouble w/having 2 instances: never knowing when to post 2X re: the same thing. Anyway...
Art mavens, if you're in #Portland before year's end, this great show has been held over (though the link is not yet updated to reflect that):
Caveat: this is a little space, with interior stairs. If you're disabled, it might be worth it to call ahead & ask about access issues.
I'm bummed it's too late for me to re-brand myself as "wholesome."
Le Birdhouse Left-Punchers: Still At It Show more
As a form of derision against Greens by Dems: "You preachy hippies," etc. is particularly funny. I recall 2000 & most of the ugliest rage directed against Nader and those of us who voted for him came fr. Boomers... who at least on paper were proud of their hippie cred. They got it into their pea brains that b/c Gore wrote a fucking book they'd all be invited to the White House to roll solar-powered Easter Eggs or some shit. The more things change... :/
Deeply saddened I cannot be on twitter for the most important of Hurricane traditions: screaming at a dumbass who says it’s good when bad things happen to people who live in states Trump won.
If we're doing phone talk today, I recommend the Samsung flip whatsit which you can still get for 10-12 bucks U.S. at Kroger/Fred's. Sure it's crap, but it's cheap crap and so you can just blame yourself whenever it's not co-operating. (Which, honestly hasn't happened to me much given that I've had the same phone with a single upgrade since about 2007.)
When Good Dinner Plans Happen To Overall Bad Planning Show more
Drank coffee this morning, but stalled on breakfast until now so I could get some spicy potato-leek soup going in the cooker.
I don't recommend this sort of half-assed scheduling as a life plan, unless you like getting so overwrought over little nothing delays that even the cat starts shooting you pitying looks.
