i see some of you are still here
i spend most of my time on tumblr lately. let me know your tumblog and i'll follow you.
if you don't haz tumblr, i also use skype. search for twahlahtsporkle.
if you don't use either of those, well, i'll try to remember to check back in here but i am a busy beaver and i don't remember how to html anymore anyways.
go play little inferno.
My faith in humanity has been restored. I was expecting to have to do quite a few drawings, and maybe a single afghan. As it turns out, only one drawing has been commissioned so far (and it was requested that Elijah do it!), and I am already committed to doing three afghans, a tea cozy, and a cross-stitch sampler. That's how successful things have been so far, and we are astonished and grateful. And that isn't even counting the marvelous people (friends and strangers alike) who have chosen to donate without receiving anything. Amazing.
In light of the tremendous response to this fundraiser, I feel that it's important to show my work, so that everyone can be assured that we don't intend to "take the money and run", as it were. Please note that the item created does not necessarily reflect the amount donated; choice of commission is entirely at the discretion of the donater.
This list will be updated frequently.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! The response to the fundraiser has been overwhelming so far, and we're extremely thankful to have so many good friends.
Thank you all so much.
Adrian's just had an invasive surgery. An expensive invasive surgery. On top of this cost, he's also going to be missing two weeks worth of work. And Christmas is coming.
So it's time for me to drum up some funds.
With this in mind, I am having a Preston Family Surgery/Christmas Fundraiser.
By clicking on the "Donate" button below, you're helping us immensely, but it withers my soul to ask for charity, so in return, I am offering goodies.
"If BET and Black History Month are not considered racist, then would White Entertainment Television and White History Month be racist?"
Uh, that shit already exists, yo! They’re just called different things, namely: All Other Television and White History Eleven Months.
Anonymous asked: "Is white people playing funk music racist?"
A lot of you guys seem to conflate ‘wack’ with ‘racist,’ but this is a perfect example. This is shit that is definitely wack, but probably not racist.

Okay I guess that's enough for now.

This song makes me think of Quin. I hope she'll watch the video, and then maybe after, the movie (Kick-Ass); it seems to call to the deep part that she and I have always shared, despite aught else.
We are young
We are strong
We're not looking for where we belong
We're not cool
We ARE free
And we're running with blood on our knees.
:D I have done good work here today.
Adrian and Elijah were playing Mario together and Adrian commented that Lakitu was the Troll Guy of the mushroom kingdom. So then I went photoshoopin.
And then I did a bunch more! Go here to see them all.
WARNING: The following video may boil your eyeballs and explode your eardrums in a way that a cool guy wouldn't look back on. If you have already watched this video, PLEASE don't watch it again. If you have children, pets, or significant others in the room, you may wish to ask them to leave, lest they put you away for fear of your sanity. Pregnant women and heart patients are advised not to watch this, because blah blah blah medical.

This video actually makes me sad. This young woman is actually completely devoid of talent, in a way that autotune could never hope to compensate for. And though she's "cute", she's actually fairly unattractive as far as making a talent-free video goes.
The problem is that some asshole (apparently the sort of asshole who always throws money at talent-free kids in the hopes that one will become a sensation of some sort-- sadface that he's sort of succeeded here) told this girl she was attractive and talented. And he gave her enough money to make what could have been an interesting, fun video and song, if she'd had the talent to pull it off. Unfortunately, she doesn't.
Consequently, she has become an internet sensation-- if, by "sensation", one means "laughingstock". If you try to look up her video on YouTube, you have to wade through a lot of e-famous video snarkers cashing in another fifteen minutes of fame making fun of her before you can even find her actual video.
I feel terribly bad for her. It's like if someone gave you $1000 bucks to buy a gorilla suit and go on a rampage through the mall-- with the promise that the stores would all pay great money for the fantastic publicity. By the time you realize that you aren't making a dime for your stunt, the person who made the promise is rolling in dough from contracts to keep you out of the mall in the future, plus YouTube commissions, while you're trying to pay off your fines and figure out how to show your face in public again.
This is clearly a girl who hoped to ride the coattails of Ke$ha and her ilk, and was told that that would be no problem. Now she's made an awful song (that she didn't even write, but will get blamed for), with awful vocalizations, that are frankly going to make it so that she's ashamed to go back to her own school.
I just feel bad for her.
I know I promised a positive post. But the scanner is SO HARD TO USE, and I have to use it on Adrian's computer and then find his link to the network folder so I can access the pic from my computer, then shrink it and make sure it's in okay shape for viewing and SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU DON'T KNOW ME
And repost on your own journal.
Unrelated personal post to come later, because I haz thoughts.
I see you with my guest stats. It makes you look like creepers. Pop in here and say hi or something for fuck's sake, I don't bite.
To find out who's creeping in YOUR journal, go here. This doesn't work if you have opted out and gone invisible.
