I suppose I should write what this blog is about here. Honestly, it's a strange conglomeration of social justice, paganism/ witchcraft, fandoms, and random things I find amusing.

DIY  Potion and Spell Book Tutorial from Better After. This is a really good tutorial using plastic toys, a glue gun, cardstock, paper towels etc… This DIY is based on a tutorial by SEEING THINGS - my favorite Halloween Blog that had great printables and tutorials and is now DEAD & GONE. This is why if I see a printable I like, I don’t wait until later to download it.

I was chatting with a donor before I drew his blood, and he was a dentist. when I actually drew him, there was just a little squirt of blood and it surprised him

I looked him in they eye and told him “you’re bleeding because you don’t floss”

and he went dead silent

White privilege is your history being taught as a core class and mine being taught as an elective. 

please let them know.

white privilege is your history being taught as a core class, and mine being banned because it would promote "the overthrow of the U.S. government, foster racial resentment, and advocate ethnic solidarity."

A Halloween PSA

pixiesizedprincess:

Halloween store are popping up, which means that no matter how offensive you find the costumes, DO NOT harass the employees or make their lives miserable by defacing merchandise. They are seasonal, minimum wage workers and attacking them gets you nowhere.

I’ve made a new spread in my efforts to promote the wonderful show MisSpelled, and the Kickstarter campaign they’re currently running to fund the rest of the season! (I care about this a lot you guys!)

One of my favourite moments in the first episode (which you should watch, by the way!) is when the girls have gotten together to cast a circle, and Gladys asks, “Should we have googled this?” (Probably!)

So, I present to you my MisSpelled Spread

Card One — WTF Am I Even Doing? will help you clarify your goal and show you what the actual point is.

Cards Two to Five — How tho?? are going to be your advice cards on how to accomplish Card One — you may even get a sequence of steps to follow here.

Card Six — TL;DR will either sum up the last four cards (in case you weren’t paying attention) or give you a bare bones “at the very LEAST just do this” step.

Card Seven — Oh, and JSYK… will point out any helpful tips or advice that mysterious beings in the universe may want you to know about what you’re trying to do — although a grimoire at your door is NOT guaranteed (but you’ve got one in your deck, now don’t you?).

While you’re doing the spread, go check out the MisSpelled episodes on youtube and support their Kickstarter! Spread the word so that we can get even more witchery out of this show in the future!

AND THEY JUST GAVE ME A HEAD OF BROCCOLLI.

The Ferguson City Council convened for the first time since Mike Brown’s death, and proved that they literally give no fucks about what the community has to say. Added to their vague, paltry proposed reforms, seems real change will have to come in Ferguson via the ballot box. I don’t care where you live folks— let this be a lesson in voting/participating in your local elections and government! #staywoke #farfromover 

The people of Ferguson are an inspiration and they are true examples of perseverance in the face of struggle and pain. I stand with Ferguson.

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
