stuff that has happened irl:
slept until 2 today aha aha so I didn’t go to get art supplies, though I did get groceries… managed to say a couple of things to the cashier in Swedish even though he took pity on me and switched to English…
met a couple of the other international exchangers in the communal kitchen, a lot of them are German? didn’t really hang around though, I am a shadow
since the weather here is so lovely (it’s late August and it’s in the 60s F what the heck!!!) I got to dress like a classy grandma again, I liked what I wore today even though I didn’t go anywhere really
worked more on my dumb HTTYD superhero fic but not enough to post a second chapter yet… I have like the end written but not the middle what ugh I’m just sitting on these extra like 10,000 words
James Lopez is a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman) who is trying to raise funding for his primarily hand-drawn short film, Hullabaloo, with hopes of eventually finding a studio to fund a full-length version.
From the film’s IndieGo page:
Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.
In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.

This vine got taken down.
I think that’s fucking important to note, that this vine got taken down. I saw it and it languished in my drafts for a while because it fell through the cracks.
Remember this. Remember that they’re taking down protest videos. Remember that they’re trying to control the narrative. Remember, keep posting, keep sharing, keep talking about Ferguson. Don’t let the story die.
These tweets from @OfRedAndBlue are very important.
great I haven´t been here a day and I´m already sick and panicking
I’m putting my cat on a vegan diet.
"how could you do that! that’s animal abuse"
No it’s not. a vegan-only diet is actually very healthy for them.
"cats are carnivores. they need to eat meat"
I know. that’s why it’s a vegan-only diet. I feed them only the finest vegans I can find.
I was about to go off on you
I’m almost packed but it doesn’t help I’m still freaking out
jag ska till Sverige imorgon, jag är väldigt rädd
OK I KEEP THINKING I’VE TOLD PEOPLE THIS BUT I FORGET THAT I POSTED IT ONLY IN SWEDISH so this post says “I’m going to Sweden tomorrow, I’m very scared” and that’s my announcement ok
