I use to care what people thought about me until one day I tried to pay my bills with their opinions.

William Shakespeare’s Timon Athens performed by the Los Angeles Drama Club / Shakespeare in the City. These are mostly underprivileged kids from an underfunded and underserved who have been given an opportunity to break out of their hard situations.

I was moved seeing these young children performing Shakespeare with such animation, enthusiasm, and skill.

There are many stories about Dhio, nearly every one of them is false.

Yesterday, a teacher at my daughter’s preschool told me that she saw two boys and a girl spinning the knobs of a play oven. Boy #1 says: “I’m a pilot! I’m flying a plane.’ Boy #2 says: “Me too!” The girl is quiet, so the teacher says to her: “What about you, are you a pilot?” The 3 year old girl replies: “I can’t be a pilot. I’m a pilot’s wife.”

So what do you think has happened in this little girl’s short life to make her believe it’s more likely that she would be a pilot’s wife than a pilot?

I’m super excited to announce that we’ve reached our goal! We’re going to make some books! Thank you to everyone who has backed and shared links so far. I can’t believe we did all of this in a week and a day.

So what’s going to happen over the next few weeks? Well, essentially, the more we raise the nicer the books can be. We’re talking nicer paper, better covers, endpapers, the works! To try and help us make that happen, I’m announcing a…

Stretch Goal!

All backers at $5 and above are already getting two digital backup stories set in the world of The Chairs.

  1. A rare four page story called “Jon” about an important character that’s mentioned in the story but never seen.

  2. A new, four page story that I’m drawing exclusively for backers, about Mary and Nel’s best friend Jen O’Neil.

But! If we get to $5200…

  1. I’ll draw an additional four page solo comic about Nel. This comic, like the others, won’t be posted on my site for the general public.

That’s only $400 more and everyone gets more comics and even better books. I’m sure we can do it.

I can’t thank you all enough!

I couldn’t go without saying that yesterday, when we reached our goal, was one of the most exciting days I’ve ever had. Thank all of you so much for making that happen!

I would like Martin Scorsese to be interested in a female character once in a while, but I don’t know if I’ll live that long.

The Soviet laser pistol was a prototype energy weapon designed for cosmonauts.
The weapon was magazine fed and used pyrotechnic flashbulb technology to project its beam.
Another example was a Laser revolver.
The weapons were meant to kill astronauts by burning holes through their space suit and for disabling optical sensors on enemy spacecraft.

[TW: harassment, threats, stalking, violence, slurs, racism]

So, someone decided to post this submission with a link to medievalpoc to a subreddit called “Tumblr In Action” this morning.

I’ve posted about this before.

Let’s stop pretending we have no idea where this comes from:

And can we stop pretending as if these supposed “rules” actually mean anything, or are ever actually enforced:

Medievalpoc has received tens of thousands of hits from this particular subreddit from more than 60 separate threads, some of which have hundreds of derogatory comments, using slurs, threats, and racist ‘jokes’.

And it is somehow a “coincidence” that I have had to speak to police four times and make official reports due to threats, stalking, harassment, and other nastiness? That people have followed me around in person without my knowledge or consent because of this? People have circumvented the “ignore” function by creating accounts just to send racial slurs and threats.

The rest of this is going under a cut, because it is truly horrific. Please proceed with caution.
