Hello

Hey guys, if you could send some pleasant and encouraging content to trashcoyote, it would be appreciated!

First, let me stress what not to do:
(1) Do not send anything pertaining to food, eye/skin horror, or parasites, no matter how tame the intent.
(2) Unless you know them already, I urge you not to talk to them about their personal life or postings. This is not meant to let other people pry, because I’m not sure how comfortable that would be for them. So please, avoid being too personal, particularly if you’re shooting an ask.
(3) Please don’t give advice - Support is what I’m doing this for, not to be belittled!
(4) Anything with negative connotations in general is not meant for this.
(5) Content which may cause feelings of dissociation with reality is out of the question.

And now, here’s what would be appropriate to send!

Pictures of:
- Peaceful scenery, including nature, cityscapes, or sky
- Cute plants, such as succulents, ferns, or fuzzy things
- Possums, coyotes, wolves, foxes, birds, or zebras
- Pretty girls in cute outfits and/or with adorable hairdos
- Easy-to-look-at color palletes
- Gemstones, rocks, feathers, shells, etc
- Glitch art / Glitchy imagery (again, please be wary of dissociation)

Videos of:
- Cute animals having a good time
- ah I dunno whatever fits the guidelines tbh. Just keep it calm

Messages that are:
- Positive!
- Supportive!
- Not infringing on their personal life, unless you’re already close with them and know that this is within their comfort zone!
- Short and sweet, so that they’re easy to handle and respond to!

…and yeah that’s about all, thank you to any and all people that go through with this and follow the rules! If I get any negative feedback I will personally carve your trachea into a flute and play it on your grave, which is destined to be a ditch on the side of an abandoned highway in Arizona.

i had the immense pleasure (and honor) of making my very first little film with the super-cool and socially conscious participant media, directed by the talented and extremely kind-hearted musa brooker and his team of magic-making animators. on behalf of all of us, i’d like to say thank you for watching it, and if you could please send it and post it and visit it often, and plant it wherever you can, it would be dearly appreciated.

after all, one pine is not a forest, no matter how big that pine tries to be.

Sooo the rules:

1. You gotta be following me. Cuz this is for my followers cuz u guys r just so awesome :)

2. You gotta reblog this post. Likes don’t count sorry :/ you also only get one entry (so u can reblog as much as u want but that won’t increase ur chances of winning)

3. Winners will be chosen randomly, and winners will get one watercolor commission. (So if u want ur puppy or kitty or if u have an oc or like u want a person painted it’s all fair game.) there will be two winners :)

4. You have to be comfortable with giving me some kind of shipping address to get it to you because otherwise this is completely pointless.

I will pick the winners on Sunday December 28!!

So yeah cool awesome if u want to participate it’s all good but you don’t have to.

Citizenship in the Digital Age.

In a class discussion revolving around what it means to be a citizen in the digital age a lot began to cross my mind. An article that the class was assigned  by Westheimer and Kahne described that there are 3 different kinds of citizens in America. Those 3 being the personally responsible, the participatory and the justice-orientated citizen. It could be argued that everyone should strive for the latter two, but after our discussion I strongly believe we should think otherwise.

Something that I perceive as an awesome use of the Internet some people appeared to frown down upon. Our conversation mainly covered being a citizen based on your volunteer involvement. With many non-profit and charity organizations gaining an online presence being able to donate money has become as easy as a button click or text message away.

The thing that upset people about this is that this type of technology is that it has the potential to generate less physical volunteers. They believe this because those donating strictly online will feel as they have already done their “part.”  I will not doubt that this will be the case for many people. However the way I see this is that there will always be people that are willing to volunteer time and develop ideas because of the moral beliefs, intelligence, upbringing, personality, etc. In Westheimer’s and Kahne’s work this was the participatory and justice-orientated citizens. There will also always be people that believe they do not need to be an involved and would rather click button to help. So if an online forum for donating makes companies more money easier, don’t hesitate to adapt the idea. We can’t expect everyone to be the critical thinkers and leaders so if charities heading online can get more personally responsible citizens to donate and donate more often lets do it.

I argue that there is something inherent in the participatory and justice-orientated citizens. Even if the opportunity to do their “part” is only one click away, this isn’t going to stop them from reaching out in other ways. We live in a digital world and refusing to adapt wont make a statement, instead it will leave you behind.

I would like to add that I do believe an effort to make more people volunteer rather than just donate is never a bad idea, but they point I am trying to establish is that it should not be the only focus.

Participant Observations

A participant observation is a method of research. Within this method of reserach there may be interviews, observations, and analysis of activities within a group. Information about how a community interected with one another would often be recorded in details to bring dimension to this type of research. An interesting point that I find about this type of research is that this method is more “hands-on” than compared to a research we would do for like a history paper.
