Acquainted with my spiritual path -Dismantling into dust.

Contemporary vegan anarchy with a post-modern DIY aesthetic - all underneath the lid of an empathetic dumpster.

This custom 0g honeycomborganics septum piece finally made its way into my face and I genuinely could not be happier with it!

I also had one of my high nostril piercings ripped out a couple of weeks ago and hardluckjim put some fahncee as fuck Anatometal synthetic white opals in there for me.

I am sincerely grateful for the excellent experiences I’ve had with all of the rad people that have helped me in my journey, through pain, to become more comfortable within my exterior.

Anonymous said: Yo, please tag gore with a trigger warning.

No.

I will never consider photographs of this sort to be, “gore”. By doing so, this particular set of images and subjects(that were taken during a genocide that’s actually taking place right fucking now) will be voided of all purpose and emotion. My blog extremely rarely focuses on subjects that tread upon more frequently triggered ground.  The emotions that these images invoke are required to be experienced by the bystander; the non-participant — for similar reasons, I will never trigger warn over: dissent, oppression, animal cruelty, ad infinitum…

I will leave the censorship of political casualties to the mainstream media.

Just a heads up to everyone who doesn’t know what’s happening to the Palestinian people in Gaza right now due to the Israeli offensive. 341 Palestinians (most of them civilians, children, etc.) and 5 Israelis (2 civilians 3 soldiers) are dead. THIS IS FUCKING GENOCIDE AND YOUR GOVERNMENT FULLY SUPPORTS IT

I am so sick of people acting like what’s happening isn’t a big deal.

Detroit activists block trucks sent to shut off water

amodernmanifesto:

As Detroit’s water provider continues to carry out its plan to turn off the taps for tens of thousands of nonpaying customers across the city, activists are resorting to civil disobedience in an attempt to stop what they call a human rights violation.

Some 50 demonstrators on Thursday held a protest outside the offices of Homrich, a company contracted by the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) to stop the flow to residences at least two months past due on their accounts. At least nine of the activists were arrested by Detroit police and charged with disorderly conduct when they temporarily blocked trucks from leaving the company’s parking lot. They were released on bail hours later.

While the protest was relatively small, activists say it’s a sign of things to come if DWSD continues shutting off water lines. The activists say that in a city with a poverty rate of 44 percent, and where water bills are higher than in much of the country, Detroit should work out a solution with poor residents instead of leaving them dry. Otherwise, they say, they’ll have no other choice but to take to the streets.

“I warned the water department that if they did not immediately stop the shutoffs, these things will take place,” said Demeeko Williams, an activist with the Detroit Water Brigade. “People are mad. This is the first resistance, and there will be more.”

For 4 consecutive days, forest defenders in the Mattole Forest have blocked logging operations throughout 8000 acres of Humboldt Redwood Company’s Mattole holdings.

One brave tree-sitter is occupying a platform suspended 100 feet in the air with their main support line attached to,a barricade in the road. This will cause the person to be seriously injured or killed if the barricade is moved unsafely

HRC ‘s plans to log unentered forest containing late seral and old growth habitat must be stopped. No matter what type of forestry method you use, there is nothing sustainable about logging current and future old growth.

Solidarity!

I had the absolute best weekend of my life camping, drinking, dancing, and  being genuinely content and happy at the Farmageddon Records Music Festival last weekend! I couldn’t even begin to explain the sorrow I felt leaving on Monday and the weight that sits in my chest now after being back home and at work this week. I’m so sick of this lifestyle of debt, responsibility, and burden(and to alla ya’ll motherfuckers that keep sayin’, “that’s just the way it is” I’m gonna punch ya’ll straight, square in the head.) I’ve got some incredibly huge and difficult choices coming in the next few months. On the brighter side, I just got all of the fahncies in my face!(will post higher quality pictures of the jewelry soon! Honeycomb Organics, Diablo Organics, etc..)My existential crisis at Farmfest after losing a piercing and discovering my dependency on them for grounding to follow!

I would just like to say fuck you to everyone who made me feel inadequate growing up and ruining my self esteem for years. You all suck and I’m glad I don’t talk to any of you any more.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO:    Stay with us and keep calm.The last thing we need when we’re panicking, is to have someone else panicking with us.
Offer medicine if we usually take it during an attack.You might have to ask whether or not we take medicine- heck, some might not; but please, ask. It really helps.
Move us to a quiet place.We need time to think, to breathe. Being surrounded by people isn’t going to help.
Don’t make assumptions about what we need. Ask.We’ll tell you what we need. Sometimes; you may have to ask- but never assume.
Speak to us in short, simple sentences.
Be predictable. Avoid surprises.
Help slow our breathing by breathing us or by counting slowly to 10.As odd as it sounds, it works.


                                                                                                                 


WHAT YOU SHOULDN’T DO:1. Say, “You have nothing to be panicked about.”We know. We know. We know. And because we know we have nothing to be panicked about, we panic even more. When I realize that my anxiety is unfounded, I panic even more because then I feel like I’m not in touch with reality. It’s unsettling. Scary.Most of the time, a panic attack is irrational. Sometimes they stem from circumstances — a certain couch triggers a bad memory or being on an airplane makes you claustrophobic or a break up causes you to flip your lid — but mostly, the reasons I’m panicking are complex, hard to articulate or simply, unknown. I could tell myself all day that I have no reason to be having a panic attack and I would still be panicking. Sometimes, because I’m a perfectionist, I become even more overwhelmed when I think my behaviour is “unacceptable” (as I often believe it is when I’m panicking). I know it’s all in my mind, but my mind can be a pretty dark and scary place when it gets going.Alternate suggestion: Say, “I understand you’re upset. It is okay. You have a right to be upset and I am here to help.”2. Say, “Calm down.”This reminds me of a MadTV sketch where Bob Newhart plays a therapist who tells his patients to simply “Stop it!” whenever they express anxiety or fear. As a sketch, it’s funny. In real life, it’s one of the worst things you can do to someone having a panic attack. When someone tells me to “stop panicking” or to “calm down,” I just think, “Oh, okay. I haven’t tried that one. Hold on, let me get out a pen and paper and jot that down, you jerk.”Instead of taking action so that they do relax, simply telling a panicking person to “calm down” or “stop it” does nothing. No-thing.Alternate suggestion: The best thing to do is to listen and support. In order to calm them down without the generalities, counting helps.3. Say, “I’m just going to leave you alone for a minute.”Being left alone while panicking makes my heart race even harder. The last thing I want is to be left by myself with my troubled brain. Many of my panic attacks spark from over-thinking and it’s helpful to have another person with me, not only for medical reasons (in case I pass out or need water) but also it’s helpful to have another person around to force me to think about something other than the noise in my head.Alternate suggestion: It sometimes helps me if the person I’m with distracts me by telling me a story or sings to me. I need to get out of my own head and think about something other than my own panic.4. Say, “You’re overreacting.”Here’s the thing: I’m not. Panic attacks might be in my head, but I’m in actual physical pain. If you’d cut open your leg, no one would be telling you you’re overreacting. It’s a common trope in mental health to diminish the feelings or experience of someone suffering from anxiety or panic because there’s no visible physical ailment and because there’s no discernible reason for the person to be having such a strong fear reaction.The worst thing you can tell someone who is panicking is that they are overreacting.Alternate suggestion: Treat a panic attack like any other medical emergency. Listen to what the person is telling you. Get them water if they need it. It helps me if someone rubs my back a little. If you’re in over your head, don’t hesitate to call 911 (or whatever the emergency services number is where you are). But please, take the person seriously. Mental health deserves the same respect as physical health.

The Calamity Cubes - Empty Bottle

I’d rather have an empty bottle than no bottle at all, to remind me of the good times before last call — to remind me of the taste before the fall.
