Help me not be homeless!

As some of you may know me, my partner, and my pets were set be made homeless on the 24th of January(my birthday) however I have managed to plead with the landlord to let us stay in our house for another month. This is great as it means I’ll be able to work at my new job without interruption until I’m actually earning.
The only condition of this is that we pay the full rent for the month, £750, by Monday. That’s only 5 days away.
I have no way of getting that money on my own, I’ve only just started my new job and I’m not scheduled to be paid for another 2 weeks.
If you are able to help please send what you can to mystrothedefender@gmail.com you can commission me or whatever if you want and if you can’t help please please spread this post.

YouTube's biggest star PewDiePie causes controversy with 'Death to all Jews' video
World's most popular YouTuber lands himself in hot water again.

The performers, who call themselves “funnyguys”, advertise that they will paint any message on their body in exchange for money while dancing in the jungle.

While many choose their own name or a funny message, PewDiePie jokingly asked the pair to display: “DEATH TO ALL JEWS”.

He published the resulting clip, showing them dancing and laughing while holding the antisemitic message above their heads, on his YouTube channel.

While some fans found the clip funny, others said the star had gone too far.

Despite requesting the hateful message to be displayed, and publishing the resulting video, PewDiePie apologised to fans at the end of the video – but still gave the performers a five-star rating.

He said: “I am sorry. I didn’t think they would actually do it. I feel partially responsible. I mean I’ve got to give them five stars for an outstanding experience because at least they did what I asked.”

He added: “I don’t feel good. I don’t feel too proud of this, I’m not gonna lie. I’m not antisemitic, or whatever it’s called, okay so don’t get the wrong idea. It was a funny meme, and I didn’t think it would work, okay. I swear I love jews, I love ‘em.

"I am so sorry. I don’t know what else to say.”

pewdiepie paid some guys actual money to hold up a sign that said “DEATH TO ALL JEWS”, published it, gave them a 5-star rating, and then tried to shrug off any responsibility by saying he didn’t think they would really do it. he even says he only feels “partially” responsible and he’s “not antisemitic” despite the fact that he 1) posted this video so close to a surge in antisemitic hate crimes following trump’s election and 2) posted this video at all.

this isn’t funny, this isn’t satire, it’s gross and hateful shock humor at the expense of people who are already unsafe with the increasingly emboldened neo nazis–i mean, “alt right”. it’s not defensible. stop supporting him.

Friendly reminder to all my minor tumblr users that you need to be very careful on this website because not everyone can be trustworthy and as friendly as you think. Take care of yourselves and distance yourself away from older people that make you feel uncomfortable.

Please help me find my friend.

My friend, Salem Al-Busmait, has been missing since Wednesday from Kingston Upon Thames and we haven’t been able to get a hold of him since.

He posted a vague tweet and was last seen on Wednesday night around Kingston but since then his phone’s been off and we have no idea where he is. He didn’t tell anyone where he’s going, he didn’t come home the following night. We’re all worried sick. It’s so unlike him to do anything rash and he’s so accomplished and busy that it’s unlike him to just disappear out of the blue.

His name is Salem. He’s 23. He’s from Dubai, he’s muslim and he’s bi. He sometimes wears glasses and he has dyed reddish hair. 

If you are around (South) London area and you have seen him, please, please contact us. Please help us find him. Please help us spread the word. We’re all so worried. Salem, please come home safe.

If you have any relevant information please contact me: smnius@gmail.com

DO NOT BUY FROM TEECHIP!!!!

I came across this Facebook page advertising Steven universe merchandise from a site called TeeChip.

I thought that their name sounded familiar and then I scrolled down my Facebook timeline to see why
(Screenshot of last photo)


Not only are they notorious for stealing designs from artists and using them without their permission, they’re also known for scheming their customers out of their money when they don’t deliver the items that they purchase. 


Do NOT buy from them. Do not waste your money on this company.
Support independent artists and fight against art theft by boycotting them. I tried to warn commenters on this pages link to a t-shirt and was blocked from commenting almost immediately.

Please spread this around so SU fans and other people are not taken advantage of and unknowingly contributing to this horrendous crime.

i really can’t stress how important it is tht anyone under 18 doesn’t post nudes. I don’t care if ur just in ur underwear, i don’t care if u edited a heart over ur nipple, that ur just expressing urself/practicing self love or u think that its not ‘that explicit’ its still considered child porn and it is illegal ! u can be charged with creating and distributing child porn and anyone who interacts with the post can be charged with distributing child porn 

please i speak from personal experience im not slut shaming or trying to block ur ‘body positivity’ or self love u can face real life legal consequences that can affect you permanently and it is really unsafe ! if u need help im here for u ♡

Attention Society6 Sellers-- UPDATED!

UPDATE! The amazing detective @bluecamellia suggested that it might have something to do with the addition tumblr made a while back to settings involving ‘Affiliate Links’ so I went to my tumblr account settings and turned it (Affiliate Links) off, and tested it out and it looks like thats what was changing all the store links! 

It says that if you put your own affiliate links in, it was supposed to leave your links alone. I tested it yesterday and it did not appear to leave my affiliate link alone and still tacked on that random account info. 

SO if you are a Society6 Curator, or have a store on Society6 (or many of the other common marketplace sites it seems might be connected to this), and you are still having a problem with your affiliate link or store link being affected, go into your Tumblr Settings, and TURN OFF the Affiliate Links switch. Here’s a screenshot:

ALSO– Do note that if this is an issue for your links, you will need to turn this setting off for every tumblr blog you have where the links are a problem. For example: If I have a main blog, and an art blog, and I post my affiliate/store links on both, I need to turn this setting off if it’s still affecting my affiliate links negatively. 

WHEW!! I was super worried some crazy stuff was going on! Thank you to @bluecamellia for being an amazing person and figuring this out! You rock! 

Here’s the original post below:

Hi! Yesterday I noticed a major issue when I clicked on my own Society6.com store Link that I posted on my tumblr blog. 

I posted my natural link which is: society6.com/arondraws

When I made my post and clicked the link, tumblr’s formatting reformats the link to now re-direct to my store but tacks on someone ELSE’S referral. After it redirects, I click on the URL bar in my browser and the url now reads:

https://society6.com/arondraws?curator=mattviglink

What does this mean? This means that someone who owns the account MattVigLink (which DOES exist on Society6) gets the credit for my link referral. This means that this person’s account gets money. MONEY. Actual money for my hard work. My art. My link posting, and my promotional work. Every sale I make, THEY GET MONEY FOR IT. NOT COOL!!

I don’t know who did it, but I found that it effects other links posted on other seller’s tumblr blogs too. Try it out for yourself. Find a Society6.com store post on tumblr and click on the link and sure enough, you will most likely find that “curator=mattvlink” has been tacked on to the end of that URL. 

Here’s what I saw:

I made sure to use the correct URL for my Society 6 Shop. I save the post and it goes up on my tumblr blog.

I hover over the link while viewing my tumblr post, and it throws a long redirect link into the preview box. 


I click it and there it is! What the hell– my store is now giving sales credits to this person’s account!

I don’t know if it’s someone who works for tumblr, or some other shady person who is trying to make money off the Society6 Curator referral system but IT SUCKS. 

I have reported this to both tumblr and Society6 and provided screenshots. I thought it was a glitch and I went back and re-did my links several times and EVERY SINGLE TIME it gets re-coded by tumblr when you click the link, and it transfers you to the intended Society6.com store and automatically tacks on “curator=mattviglink” to your url. 

Fuck that shit. If you are a Society6 Seller who has this same issue, PLEASE Report it to both Tumblr and Society6. Let them know that your links are ending up giving credit to someone else’s account. It’s definitely not supposed to do that, and it’s abuse of the curator system at Society6. 

Thank you.

Update: Don’t get me wrong– I love you Tumblr and @staff and I hope this is something that can be fixed. Tumblr is my favorite social media platform and I really really hope this is something that can be fixed/turned off. I also hope it’s something that has not been going on for very long! I <3 Tumblr!

**PLEASE SHARE THIS IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT THE CANADIAN IMMIGRATION WEBSITE**

[note: reposted from Facebook]

Hi everyone, as you probably know, the CIC website has been down since the 2016 election results due to a sudden flood of people accessing it. This is a really bad thing, because it affects those who are in the middle of immigrating or helping loved ones immigrate to Canada.

A personal friend of mine has spent hundreds of hours, travelled thousands of miles, and spent thousands upon thousands of dollars to get paperwork and documents and health checks together to prepare for their spouse’s application for permanent residency in Canada. Because of the website going down, they were unable to upload their documents for their application, and since this is a very time sensitive process, if they can’t get access soon, they may lose this one chance to finally be able to have a life with their spouse. It’s a very difficult process to begin with- an application could be denied just because the assessing officer was having a bad day. Not being able to upload documents on time would make everything worse.

Please, PLEASE, if you don’t have an actual legitimate reason to go to the CIC website, please refrain from visiting it in order to keep it available for those who are really counting on it being accessible.

Please share and pass on this message to everyone. It would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you.

URGENT ACTION:

Speaker Paul Ryan is indeed holding a phone vote on whether we should keep Obamacare, and I called and voted my support for the ACA. Real political results come from writing, calling, and nagging our legislators. This took me under 2 minutes.

Call (202) 225-0600. When you hear the first prompt, press 2 to go to ObamaCare, and then press 1 to support ObamaCare. You don’t have to hear the entire introduction to vote.

You don’t have to speak directly to anyone, just call, and after the recorded message, press a number to indicate your support of ACA. Let’s flood the survey with support.

Stay on if you get dead air. It takes around 90 seconds to connect to survey. Once it picks up, follow the prompts. If your call isn’t answered at first or it goes directly to the recording of “mailbox is full,” wait 15 seconds and then try again. You will have to listen to a short message (<1 min) about the Speaker’s views on Obamacare before you vote.

Non-shipping bloggers from BBC Sherlock fandom, where are you?

It’s been a while since we’ve done this, so let’s update the list!

I am a non-shipper when it comes to BBC Sherlock. It’s important to note that’s not the same thing as an anti-shipper–I don’t care what anyone else ships. I just want to be free to sit here not shipping things while everyone else does whatever they like.

There are a lot more non-shippers in the fandom than people realize, probably because communities don’t form as organically around the thing you’re not doing. We don’t have a tag or any other obvious place to meet and mingle. That’s where this post comes in.

If you’re a BBC Sherlock non-shipper who’d like to meet other non-shippers, here’s a chance to speak up!

Reblog or reply to this post & let us know if you’re:

A) A Sherlock non-shipper who regularly posts about the show on your blog.

B) A Sherlock non-shipper who doesn’t post about the show much (or ever), but would like to find other non-shippers to follow or talk to.

C) A shipper who is signal-boosting this message. (Thanks!)

Signal Boost

Received my paycheck today. The situation is pretty much dire, to the point where I can’t even talk about having food for Christmas. Not for me, not for the cats. To make matters worse, I’m $50 short. This stupid corporation usually paid weekends, but for 3 months now we weren’t “needed” on weekends, so we were stuck on $300/month. My rent is $300, for the love of God!!!!!

Please, if you can help, do it at PayPal za_illi@yahoo.com . Not necessarily for me, but for my animals. I can eat bread for a month and that’s fine, but I have to feed my furbabies at least..

For those wondering, yes I am looking for a different and better paid job, because this is getting ridiculous.

@mostlycatsmostly I could really use some help at this moment, so please reblog it if you can/want to. Bless you for helping me so far :(

Not sure if there’s a similar post like this going around yet but:

I know there’s a few listings on eBay and Amazon for copies of Regional At Best with some pretty high prices. If you’re looking for a copy online or you recently bought or already own a copy and you’re not sure whether or not it’s real, here are some photos to show the difference between the actual real copy from Josh and Tyler vs the fake ones scammers have been selling.

1st photo: The FAKE copy is shown on the RIGHT, the REAL on the LEFT. On the real Regional At Best copies, the 4 in the bar code is open while on the fake ones, the 4 is completely closed. Also, the J in Joseph curves under while on the fake copy, it does not. THIS IS THE EASIEST WAY TO KNOW IF THE COPY YOU OWN OR THE ONE LISTED ONLINE IS REAL OR FAKE.

2nd - 4th photo: REAL on TOP, FAKE on the BOTTOM. Notice in all the pictures, the real copy is slightly more yellow and faded looking while the fake copy looks white and restored.

5th photo: REAL cd on the LEFT, and FAKE on the RIGHT. NOTICE how the fake copy’s logo has a white border.

If you see a Regional At Best in a JEWEL case, like Vessel, ITS NOT REAL. Regional At Best was only made in the cardboard cases, like the special edition for Blurryface, not the plastic ones like Vessel comes in.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL WHEN PURCHASING A REGIONAL AT BEST CD ONLINE. MAKE SURE YOU’RE NOT GETTING SCAMMED OUT OF YOUR MONEY BY FAKES.
