faceless-goddess replied to your post “faceless-goddess replied to your post “sceptick replied to your post…”I like your plan. Being able to express ourselves through art and music is extremely therapeutic. That’s why they hate our art unless they can consume it.
Absolutely. I want to encourage us to make collages, to draw without art school training and to write without english degrees for a start. I also said this a ways back but I’m so into notebooks and handwritten words for those capable. I would love to start a notebook program so we can encourage poc and especially black girls to see the merit in telling their own stories on our own terms. I struggled a lot because invasion of privacy was something that happened to me at a young age and as a result my mother taught me to never write anything down. I’m glad I defied her, and I want to encourage others to do the same. I find journaling so therapeutic, and I think it can help to make us confident in expressing ourselves. At least in part.
You go, girls.
I was just having a conversation today about this film. I have a lot of thoughts on it and the other Disney movies coming out around this time.
I walked in on this movie about halfway through the other day, and starting from the middle with 0 context, a lot of what happened seemed like completely random nonsense.
MisSpelled is about five girls who mysteriously acquire magical abilities and how they learn to deal with them and one another. It’s funny and comedic and tons of fun for you and your friends. Also three of our lead actresses identify as hispanic/latina!
We are gearing into our kickstarter phase and need support from you!

Please spread the word! MisSpelled needs you!
The film-makers only used CG effects when absolutely necessary, and to enhance practical effects for the creatures rather than replace them completely. Even the smaller female alien that appears before the credits was a petite woman in a creature suit. A puppet-type head was used for some of the attack shots wherein Moses is suddenly bitten. The creature’s head was a carefully constructed mask that had no eyes, and even the glowing mouthful of large, carnivorous teeth were achieved by animatronics (including twelve “servos”) rather than added in post. The film-makers admit that it did help save money, but also had an unexpected benefit. The actors, rather than reacting to something that wasn’t there, admitted that they were genuinely and unexpectedly frightened by the look and movements of creatures actually present (especially during chase sequences when a creature/creatures would pursue them at full speed). Nearly every actor said they felt especially intimidated— many surprisingly so— by the physical presence in a way they would not have if the creatures had been added digitally later. The same went for the majority of the settings; the director said it added authenticity and atmosphere to shoot on a set rather in front of a green screen. [SOURCE]

Pictured: me holding the hardback US edition of my novel, Wolf in White Van, on the day I got it from Farrar, Strauss & Giroux: today, Thursday, August 21, 2014. Not to get all emotional with you but the first real ambition I ever had was to be an author. As a child I dreamt of seeing my name on book jackets. Now I am covering up most of that name with my hand, but yet refuse to re-take the picture, because I feel my deep-game goth powers are so strongly in evidence here that it must be shared as-is to give hope to both the revealed & the crypto-goths.
Huge, huge thanks to all who brought me to this day - teachers, friends, all of you who’ve listened to my songs or read stuff I’ve written and connected with what you found there, who believed in me - may I always be worthy of your support!
Finally, because people will ask so why not get it out of the way up front: the lyric at the piano behind me is “Beyond the Mysterious Beyond” from The Land Before Time 7: The Stone of Cold Fire, a song which I can totally sing the hell out of, and you don’t have to take it from me, you can ask my son, who insists that I sing it at least eight times a day, which I do cheerfully and I’d do a ninth time, too, if he wanted, because, as I am always asking in my better moments, why the hell not.
I cannot wait to get this book.

I’ve seen the video of him paying for everything and I’ve seen the video of the store clerk confirming that he paid for everything.
Even if there was a video of him robbing a store I don’t see how that would change anything?? Everyone would still be as justified in their disgust and outrage for how the Ferguson police department has murdered him and waged war on an entire town.
