Oh, My Art

Did I share this?  You'll see some of my art here. Note that it's quite the piece and I started it at the start of Covid (and it's still going, though my iPad can't handle the size... le sigh). Share it and I'll post the society 6 prints you can get too.

On Book Reviews of the "Classics"

Yeah, sure, the one star reviews of any classic can be great, but I think this, which is essentially a form of Trump, in that it's kinda tribal maybe even classist rather than based on anything "deep." See defenders of DFW for more. Also WM defending DWM isn't new, so that they only do it using mockery seems telling. I know I wrote about classics, and now I think a little differently: how in many ways what is written has to both strike a chord as well as be backed by some power (or rising power or in the halls of power) otherwise it will rarely gain traction. It's the same reason the Nobel prize of lit has gone as many times to a writer from Sweden than from all of Asia. Do you really believe ~4.5 billion people have contributed as much as 10 million? lol.

GOTV Part 2

Yeah, sure the right and iTrump are trying to steal the POTUS election, but there's still Georgia that we need to stay on top of.[1]  So, here are some good campaigns for you to spend time on.

You from GA?  Well make sure you're registered to vote.

Votefwd is all about letter writing. Right now it's voter registration and next it will be getting people to vote. So start up!

Fairfight is Stacey Abrams and given that she's mainly behind the GA flip, well, do as she says! The donate button on that page takes us right to this. So splurge some cash. Volunteer nationally or in GA. Seems that you can text and call (non-GA peeps). 

 Then there's the two Senator's campaigns. 

Warnock is here. 

Ossoff's  campaign is here. 

 

PEC has this GA voter registration Drive including some other methods you can use to help. 


Let me know if I should add any!


The Attempted Coup by White ISIS & Our Future.

Who knows how this Biden admin is going to be able to rule? I'm assuming he gets in office. Though Trump is throwing the fuel out there, nothing seems to be catching, but one can never rule it out entirely since the dumb really likes to go hard in the paint around here.

QAnon, Satan, and the Right.

Jon Voight, people, is out there talking civil war, talking stolen election (probably projection and the right being tired of seeing darker people vote), and, OFC, talking Satan (with the left). Good times. It's kinda funny thinking about the many forces that animate the right. Belief in a Satan who dances with the left (to make up climate change, to steal an election, to have a pedophilia ring, to have the proper conditions for a second coming  etc etc) probably is the strongest one out there. They're using it now. Talk like this can easily get out of hand. Must stay alert for them to actually run an election. 

But it reminds me of Satan's Plea, my short I wrote a long time ago. Funny how my thinking differs so much from these folk. Mainly, I'm thinking that for them, the people with power, and for the most part, the people behind much strife in the world, are all in on "I'll blame some evil cabal for all that" and also "let's make sure we know it's only Satan that's behind all these progressive attempts at improvement of other's lives". 


Batshit crazy, but they make up around 40% of the nation, so what do we do?

Probably shared this, but will do so again. Small collage about 6x6" or so. Interesting, I think.

Veteran's Day

Here we are, another Veteran's Day and our election saga continues. The right is essentially saying black votes in cities are illegal. Meanwhile they haven't actually brought forward anything worthwhile in terms of actual evidence. Biden is doing a "keep calm and carry on" demeanor, and some people seem to like this (projects certainty, doesn't it?)... but man does it give me 2016 vibes of HRC and the Dems trying to be proper in front of a carnival barker and promptly losing. IOW they go low we go high only works in very rare circumstances and really doesn't in other ones.

How's the Right Coping? Not Well, Tommy Boy, Not Well

 Because the dumb goes hard in the paint. It appears that for now at least the likes of Fox News has lowered their screaming for Trump (cut off his press sec's tripe but continuing to fuel the flames in other ways). But there's plenty of dumb out there on the right. The MSM, with it's right of center bias tried to pull some "listen to the other side" bullshit again. When HRC had more votes than Trump there was hardly a peep about listening to her people, was there?

Biden, President Elect

He won. But it would appear that many on the right are buying into electoral shenanigans being the reason they (outside of Mitt Romney) lost. This besides the fact that it was the GOP who, very obviously and very openly tried to steal the election, is still banging the drums with their initial attempt.

Thursday, November 5, 2020

On & on & on

On and on it goes. The trends are good for Biden, but we have the POTUS screaming like a child that the votes are being counted. So far it appears that no one is taking him too seriously, though I wonder how far they want to take it. Note, btw, that the GOP actually stopped PA from counting mail in ballots early and right now they are all in on complaining that they are being counted late. Nevertheless, they have so far tried to steal the election and failed. Stay tuned for more info.

Welp

No need to chicken little this out, but still looking good for Biden. Looks like Trump is trying to stop legit votes (In addition to him already slowing down the post office to make sure votes don't come in on time) from being counted. Looks like we're in Trump trying to pull a coup territory. Get ready everyone. No need to take this lying down. We'll have to call reps and take to the streets if they steal this election (and remember with Trump everything is projection so when he talks stealing, he's talking himself)

GOTV

First thing you can do is tell everyone you know (friends, family, old friends) to make sure they vote. Suppose you should leave out the right wingers who are trying to destroy the nation as is. Once you've done that, get out there and make sure randos are gonna vote too. 

So here are those links yet again (and another link on what the best way to go about it. Basically get good at one thing for one candidate and do that. Better than switching tasks, right?):

So here, try to do something rather than doomscroll, as remember, doing a denial of services attack against us all is part of Trump's plan. So don't fret, act:
 
The Senate is also important, so Actblue is place you can donate. 

Swing Left has a virtual phone bank you can participate in (and some other ways like donations etc). 

Resistance Labs is where you can text to get out the vote. 

Vote Forward is a way to do postcards to help improve voter turnout. 
(last day to mail out letters was last week, mail them out if you haven't!)

Princeton Election Consortium has a list of races where your money will make the most difference. They have Senate races by "power" (where your money, and ostensibly your time, goes the furthest). Currently the most important states are: MT>KS>AR>SC>ME. So see if you can do something or spend some $ there. 

Here's the one for the Presidential race. Currently, the states where you can have the most influence are: AR>NV>PA>NC>AR>GA. So give those a try. Note that this is a little different from 538's polls which show the closest states being: PA, NC, OH, FL, GA, IA, TX, AR, WI. So If you spend your time or money there, that's fine too. 

And one for redistricting, if you're interested. 
 
Also, if you need to make a plan: here.  Or one thing you can do. 

Of course this doesn't mean that our work is over even if the Dems win (there will still be work to do), but it's a good first step. Let me know if I've missed something.

Quick Note on this Kickstarter

Edit: The Kickstarter made it. Thanks!
 
Just so you know, a couple days left to help fund this kickstarter documentary about the tech that brought us the current dystopia that we have. Extremely important for everyone to check it out and try and see what's going on and, more importantly, if we can change directions and create a better world (and no tech-fanboi, I, but it can be used in better ways, right?). Check it out and share it where you can!

GOTV!

So get out there and make sure you're registered, or perhaps others are registered. That means text, msg, and call everyone you know to make sure they're good to go. Then, like I said before, GOTV. Yeah, I too have wasted time this weekend, but now's the time to get back on that horse:

GOTV, then some aaht.

 I know how you like the art, johnny boy, so I thought this would pique your curiosity. No posters of this one. But enjoy for now. 

Then GOTV. 

Meanwhile, I'm trying to GOTV and not look at the right turn the screws for their theocratic state (like Iran, we'll allow some life tenure fucks to veto the popular will. Great, remember , GOTV). 

Here in Seattle, it's full on fall. 

Trees heaving while the handmaiden is given life tenure.

GOTV and Vote.

Just remember, most of what the GOP does is project. So when they say there will be ballot fraud, they are the only ones who have been caught doing it and are doing it now to Democratic areas.  Don't despair, of course, since they want you to not vote. GOTV.

Worth a look, though, this use of art as a way to get around taxes. Good times, for oligarchs, apparently.

Schadensurfing


Apparently the right (and the MSM), the people who ran entire campaigns on "fuck your feelings" think the left is being a little too mean right now. In all seriousness, fuck that noise. Above is how many of us feel with this idiot (who was positive then tried to spread it to Biden). Guess what would happen to poor or minorities if they did something even close to this? Yeah. Criminal in White House gets a dose of what he's been dealing out. If you like the above, get some stickers or prints here. Peace.

Trump is Positive

So here we are. Trump has the Covid (or so they say, we'll see, I'm betting on yes, given their no masks policies). The right trying to pretend that they didn't spend months gleeful that Covid  was hitting darker people are asking Dems to be nice. Naw. I wish upon him and his ilk all that they wish upon people like me. That being said, there is going to be some interesting times coming up. 
 
Especially since the right seems to want to scream at everyone but themselves (see: "China got our POTUS infected", see,  "How come the Dems don't have it?"), nevermind that the virus isn't a moral agent and perhaps if you actually took the science seriously you wouldn't be in this situation (though, really, I do wonder why it took so long).

Luckily Biden seems to be negative. Also the debates are probably on hold for now.

Doomscrolling Again? Don't Worry, Me Too.

The SCOTUS thing had me down.[1] Now, I've finished my first set of letters and working on the next ones. I enjoy the letter writing because it's something I can do after work and errands are done (and not disturb people). Also it's supposed to be effective. Note: make a factory line out of the letters. Write all the return addresses, your story (shorten it, but make it real) and sign them all, then go back through with the names etc. Hope that helps. Still a fan of votefwd.org (remember to pick the ones that are targeting democratic voters).

Trump Failure Porn and Other Liberal Talking Points.

 Here we go again. All over the liberal sphere we see the Trump Failure Porn on full. Like "trump has spent all his cash he's in trouble!" Or "trump meltdown!" First, there's no such thing as a Trump meltdown if that's his average day. A meltdown speaks to some final end to his craziness, or the pinnacle thereof. He's not there yet and hasn't been in a while. Same with the cash being spent. Sure he's probably skimming that money for himself, but he gets free ads from the MSM (most of them just ready to call him presidential, just please, daddy Trump, say something nice... and he did for RBG and now it's gone) and is a living embodiment of "no such thing as bad press."

You GOTV like a mad person? Good.

Now, enjoy some fucking ahhht. Here, specifically. It's a couple pieces I did a while back. Want some prints of it? Well here's Alaskan Memories and here's Flower Shavings. So get some fancy social status on your walls... by me. Then share them with others...

Wanna read something that I've written lately? I'll post whatever has been accepted. I'm looking through, though, for something to post and I will soon. Sorry about the delays, of course. On Patreon there are a whole bunch of things

Okay, Doomscroll a Little, then Use that Anger to Act.

Edit: Also, RGB is dead. Which means not only is the court now 6-3 Crazy right, but they'll try to stop anything from the left. This means Climate Change, as well as a new round of femicide (okay that's some crazy shit, google, that just autocorrected to feticide)in our nation. Meanwhile the dems and centrist talking heads are going on about norms. Yeah they destroyed them years ago. If you have no positive punishment the other side won't adhere to any norms you may tut-tut about. So get out and act, it ain't over yet. 

Just so you know, the system is here to make sure that black lives don't matter by making sure they can't vote in a myriad of ways. There will be more and since they're screaming about voter fraud and are kings of projection, I can only assume they are here to destroy the process. 

Act!

On BLM Sedition and The Right. (Proxys and Conspiracies)

 A good tweet storm on the idea of taking all agency from any group because they *might* have some attachment with another (usually more powerful, usually someone the accusing person does not like, for whatever reason) entity. This is an odd purity test that makes just about any movement false. I'm seeing it here in America with people claiming BLM is some Marxist (but also billionaire, so I guess some bastardized derivative of Elders of Zion bullshit that will forever be with us) attempt to take down America.

Onion With the Truth

The Onion probably hated the day Trump became president because their shtick became the news so what did they have? Well they have this, which I'm sure a whole lot of evangelicals are non-ironically going through. But don't just doomscroll. Use that energy to act.

Don't Doomscroll, Act.

 Smoke's still bad out here in Seattle. But people out east have it worse. But just so you know that the comparisons of the right to Nazis isn't just some left wing scream machine, here are our resident Nazis in ICE carrying out sterilization on undesirables. Yup, if you're on the right you're with Nazis. Period. And as for many of my friends who want to compare the right and left as the same, naw, you're helping Nazis. We have an election at hand and we need to act instead of fretting:

So here are those links yet again (and another link on what the best way to go about it. Basically get good at one thing for one candidate and do that. Better than switching tasks, right?):

So here, try to do something rather than doomscroll, as remember, doing a denial of services attack against us all is part of Trump's plan. So don't fret, act:
 
The Senate is also important, so Actblue is place you can donate. 

Swing Left has a virtual phone bank you can participate in (and some other ways like donations etc). 

Resistance Labs is where you can text to get out the vote. 

Vote Forward is a way to do postcards to help improve voter turnout. 

Princeton Election Consortium has a list of races where your money will make the most difference. They have Senate races by "power" (where your money goes the furthest). And one for redistricting, if you're interested. 
 
Also, if you need to make a plan: here.  Or one thing you can do.

Of course this doesn't mean that our work is over even if the Dems win (there will still be work to do), but it's a good first step. Let me know if I've missed something.

Message Not Understood: A documentary we need today.

Crazy times out there. Like I stated earlier, the technology that we have today is truly tearing us apart. Sure there are issues with human nature, but now with a million Radio Rwandas, we have people in rural areas sure that it was antifa that started the fires (and not a combination of climate change and wildlife management)[1]. I quit Facebook a while ago not just because it was bad for my health but because, as I stated then, FB was simply bad. 

The issue comes from what the internet could have been and what it has become. The phone should be a moment of connection with other humans, and to some extent it is, but it has also served to tear us apart or simply become an addictive tapping machine. 

To that end, a good friend of mine is working on a documentary that talks to the original inventors of all the tech we have today. In it, they take a look at how the original inventors envisioned all these technologies would take us (not where we are today). Important stuff, as the last election (and this one) was lost mainly because of technology being misused (or used by pretty bad actors). So check it out and throw some cash at it. Share it too. 

[1] Might have to write more on this form of eco fascism that doesn't really contend with Climate change but just blames it on some leftist cabal. Crazy, but it seems the right is crazier than ever.

The Dumb Goes Hard in the Paint

Well, the right definitely likes going hard in the paint with their dumb. I would laugh if there weren't dire consequences. Here in Seattle, smoke has made the place unlivable. And in 5 days fires tore through the entire state to make it the second worst fire season (that's pretty rough). Now, this is a combination of both bad fire management (no, not shit for brains Trump's raking but more controlled burns, though on fed lands etc).

I mentioned White Supremacists who are Veterans.

But don't forget the cops who are in league with them as well. The Portland shooter, it would appear, was executing in some gangland killing. Remember that white supremacists have infiltrated many of the forces out there. Also Trump is making sure there are no efforts to root them out. More reason for you to work to get this Carnival Nazi out of the office.

Stolen Election. Don't forget to GOTV

Woodward confirms that Trump is a reality TV star who knew how bad the pandemic was, but only knew to gaslight everyone by playing it down because, well, he's a reality TV star and all he knows is PR. On that note, there's more from Woodward that shows that many election machines were hacked and no proper audits were done to know how bad it was. We're truly reaching failed state levels of fraud here. 

Good times. So here are those links yet again:

The Economy

 Many of us, during Obama's time, pointed out how weak the economic growth was. It was. Long term unemployment numbers were bad as were wage growth indicators. Indeed, in many ways, Trump took advantage of that nuanced argument and (along with yelling "fake nuumbers!") and the minor manufacturing recession in the Midwest to ride to victory.

The White Supremacy Wing of Veterans is At it.

 Interesting to see the white supremacy wing of veterans out there talking about killing peaceful protestors. First, I'm not sure how many would actually be this vocal, (most really do want to be left alone) but they exist. I saw plenty speak up about kneeling NFL players (remember that peaceful protest?) and how horrendous it was. Never once taking into account that BLM. So yeah, if you're a veteran who things BLM doesn't matter, then you're a white supremacist or break bread with them and should at least wear the associated symbols.

Meanwhile In Seattle.

Meanwhile, here in Seattle, smoke has made this area unliveable (thanks, right wingers and climate change denialists) for the time being. Holy shit is it bad out there. Also gonna be hot, so without AC, this place is essentially a hell hole. Also, SPD bashing heads at peaceful protests. The more things change, the more they stay the same. How dare these people even think about taking funds from the SPD and spending it elsewhere?

Mark Bradford

 One of my favorite contemporary artists, Mark Bradford, Is out there creating his beautiful paintings. In many ways, his work reminds of the mind maps that I've tried to work on myself (in a different way, of course). Of course, his Quarantine output has been better than mine. Worth checking out.

Defeating Trump

Since I can't pin on blogger, reposting this.

So here:
The Senate is also important, so Actblue is place you can donate. 

Swing Left has a virtual phone bank you can participate in (and some other ways like donations etc). 

Resistance Labs is where you can text to get out the vote. 

Vote Forward is a way to do postcards to help improve voter turnout. 

Princeton Election Consortium has a list of races where your money will make the most difference. They have Senate races by "power" (where your money goes the furthest). And one for redistricting, if you're interested.

Ah, the Left.

So I consider myself to be on the left (seriously, it's the only place to be if you follow evidence-based reasoning), but boy oh boy, watching some people talk about Trump, like they learned nothing from 2016, is something else. Trump tries a little lefty talk (just like he did in 2016, but guess what, he definitely tried to increase tensions everywhere in the world) that mirrors Eisenhower, and yet even though he increased military spending and taken money away from social goods,  and will continue doing that, they can't seem to understand that.

Damn good book.

I read this book, A History of Violence, just today. It's a very well written book with a lot of violence. But it gives a good description of all the gangs and cartels in Central America (MS13, Barrio 18 and so on). Very good. But also stomach churning. From the human trafficking to revenge, it paints a bleak picture. I highly recommend it. Don't have more thoughts, but I'll get there soon and post them when I do.

Michael Moore's Doc, Planet of Humans.

I first heard about Moore's film from my family, after it had been abruptly pulled from Youtube. There was, it seems, something amiss. I too don't like the cancel culture that exists out there.. (that is, the one with power, the right wing). So when something like this happens, it seemed odd. Especially for such a famous filmmaker. I looked it up and on Moore's twitter and it appeared that it was a copyright issue.

I know how you like the fairy tales, Johnny boy, so I thought this would look good in your mind.

Have a short story out by Swamp Ape Review. Here's the story, so check it out and enjoy. Might be one of the last I did in that Borges style I used to like so much. Not that I'm saying it isn't something I'll do again, in fact I appreciate the framing of the story and I think it only adds to it. Check it out and tell me what you think. All right, I have some writing to do. Peached out.

Trump's Trying to Steal an Election

Somehow, google deleted my previous post on how to act for this election

So here:
The Senate is also important, so Actblue is place you can donate. 

Swing Left has a virtual phone bank you can participate in (and some other ways like donations etc). 

Resistance Labs is where you can text to get out the vote. 

Vote Forward is a way to do postcards to help improve voter turnout. 

Princeton Election Consortium has a list of races where your money will make the most difference. They have Senate races by "power" (where your money goes the furthest). And one for redistricting, if you're interested.
