kickstarter of the day

💞Back To School Glow Up💞

Alright y'all, with school season comin back, here are some prime hoe tips to get y'all ready to slay.

1. Develop a skincare regimen at least once daily: wash, exfoliate*, mask*, toner, essential oils, moisturize.

*once weekly, to avoid overshocking your skin.

2. Tea tree oil is bomb for acne and acne scars. Apply that shit.

3. Coconut oil and castor oil for brow/lash growth every night.

4. Go through your closet, and toss clothes you don’t wear. Invest in more neutral colors and fits to configure a wider variety of cute ass outfits.

5. Don’t be afraid to thrift shop; places like TJ Maxx and The Goodwill have bomb ass brands for cheap.

6. Get your books/supplies ready a week before. Prepare yourself.

7. Have all of your test dates/assignment due dates in your phone before classes start. Make sure to request off days of work the nights before major assignments and exams if you can help it.

8. Things to keep in a bag in your locker: pads/tampons, an extra pair of panties, a spare change of clothes & shoes(in case of a wardrobe malfunction), hairbrush and hairtie, nail file & clippers, makeup remover wipes, concealer, masacara, gum, water bottle, extra pens, some spare cash, phone charger, and earbuds.

9. Keep a water bottle in ya bag at all times. A hoes gotta be hydrated.

10. Keep up with ya studies (see my School and Studying Tips post for more details on how to boost that GPA)

11. A week before school starts, develop getting sleep schedule for school by going to bed half an hour earlier every night. This’ll make waking up earlier less of a hell, trust me.

12. Have a go-to makeup look for school that takes 30 mins or less as a default, if you beat your face in the morning.

13. Replace coffee with tea for a more healthy caffeine fix before class.

14. Prepare yourself a decent breakfast before you go to bed, so you can easily grab and go in the morning. Breakfast kickstarts your metabolism and decreases cravings throughout the day, and generally boosts your mood and brain power.

15. If you wear a uniform, make sure that shit is comfortable and actually fits you. Make sure nothing hangs off of you, cuts off circulation, itches, irritates, etc.

16. Need a break from studying? Work out. Burn some calories, clear your mind, and stimulate your brain with some exercise. Swear to god this keeps my grades up and my body lookin fly.

17. Invest in a hair mask (any pharmacy or makeup outlet will have them), or make one yourself. They make your hair super soft and shiny for flipping it when you walk past that group of girls who hate you lol

Thats all I can think of for now hoes, get good grades, I believe in all of y'all✨

THE TIM’ROUS BEASTIE ANTHOLOGY IS IN ITS FINAL HOURS ON KICKSTARTER!

Hey again, folks! Iron Circus Comics’ latest anthology project, featuring small animals on BIG adventures, has less than three days remaining on Kickstarter and about $6,000 left to go until its creators’ next pay raise!

Part of the reason ICC pre-orders so many of its projects on Kickstarter is it allows us to improve artist pay. And if (when???) we hit $40,000, our creators will be on the receiving end of a $20 page rate increase.  

So don’t wait to grab it at a con or off the bookstore/comic shop shelf! Back us now on Kickstarter!

Thanks, all!

A few months ago, I did a couple daemon-descendant race designs for a tabletop RPG called Cosmic Mirror. The book contains tons of artwork from lots of awesome artists, and I’m pretty delighted and proud to have been a part of it! Plus, what’s not to love about these fiery cuties?

The first book of that RPG is up on kickstarter now, and only has 16 days left! If you have a bit of cash to spare to support an indie project, consider backing it! 

>>LINK TO THE KICKSTARTER<<

PS: One of the stretch goals is to have these guys, along with other currently NPC races, be fleshed out further as playable races! So that’s neat.

KICKSTART YOUR DAY WITH: “Because Of Them, We Can…” by Eunique Jones Gibson

This amazing photo campaign for kids where African-American children pose as the great African Americans of our past and present that helped PoC to become who they are now, started out as a project for Black History Month. The photographer behind the project, Eunique J. Gibson, then realized that doing this for only 28 days out of the month of February couldn’t and wouldn’t do.

Extending it to a full year where everyday, she would post a new photograph up on social networks, Gibson started the Kickstarter to turn her photo series into a book. She hopes to raise $80,000 by mid June, and has so far raised a little over $9,000.

How much you want to bet that what’s going to kickstart Steven’s healing of Jasper is that one day he’s just going to be sitting down going through his phone and then be like:

“Oh, that’s right, I forgot….”

Meanwhile, in the new Tumblr Verizon regime

https://www.theverge.com/2017/6/21/15816974/verizon-tumblr-net-neutrality-internet-politics-david-karp

In 2014, Tumblr was on the front lines of the battle for net neutrality. The company stood alongside Amazon, Kickstarter, Etsy, Vimeo, Reddit, and Netflix during Battle for the Net’s day of action. Tumblr CEO David Karp was also part of a group of New York tech CEOs that met with then-FCC chairman Tom Wheeler in Brooklyn that summer, while the FCC was fielding public comment on new Title II rules. President Obama invited Karp to the White House to discuss various issues around public education, and in February 2015The Wall Street Journal reported that it was the influence of Karp and a small group of liberal tech CEOs that swayed Obama toward a philosophy of internet as public utility.

But three years later, as the battle for net neutrality heats up once again, Tumblr has been uncharacteristically silent. The last mention of net neutrality on Tumblr’s staff blog — whichfrequently posts about political issues from civil rights to climate change to gun control to student loan debt — was in June 2016. And Tumblr is not listed as a participating tech company for Battle for the Net’s next day of action, coming up in three weeks.


“TUMBLR HAS BEEN UNCHARACTERISTICALLY SILENT”
A representative for Battle for the Net told The Verge in an email, “Outreach for the day of action is very much an active and ongoing process… I wouldn’t read too much into who is and isn’t on the list so far.” Still, a rep for Tumblr declined to comment on whether the company would be participating, and AOL’s senior VP of brand communications Caroline Campbell responded to an inquiry about whether Tumblr would maintain its stance on net neutrality, writing “[It’s] just too early to answer your question.”

One reason for Karp and Tumblr’s silence? Last week Verizon completed its acquisition of Tumblr parent company Yahoo, kicking off the subsequent merger of Yahoo and AOL to create a new company called Oath. As one of the world’s largest ISPs, Verizon is notorious for challenging the principles of net neutrality — it sued the FCC in an effort to overturn net neutrality rules in 2011, and its general counsel Kathy Grillo published a note this Aprilcomplimenting new FCC chairman Ajit Pai’s plan to weaken telecommunication regulations.


Now, multiple sources tell The Verge that employees are concerned that Karp has been discouraged from speaking publicly on the issue, and one engineer conveyed that Karp told a group of engineers and engineering directors as much in a weekly meeting that took place shortly after SXSW. “Karp has talked about the net neutrality stuff internally, but won’t commit to supporting it externally anymore,” the engineer said. “[He] assures [us] that he is gonna keep trying to fight for the ability to fight for it publicly.” Karp did not respond to four emails asking for comment, and neither Yahoo nor Tumblr would speak about the matter on the record.

On the day Verizon’s Yahoo acquisition was completed, Tumblr was hit by a wave of layoffs. A number of current and former employees shared a post by social media industry commentator Andréa López entitled “Layoffs and Tumblr the Centipede.” In it, López theorizes, “In addition to the real life talented human beings impacted by these layoffs, the move is a warning and reminder — Tumblr is no longer in the protective purgatory of pre-Verizon Yahoo.” If Mayer’s Yahoo didn’t really know what it was doing with Tumblr, that meant Tumblr was free to do what it wanted. That extended to politics: Yahoo didn’t give Tumblr any official blessing or encouragement when it decided to become the tech industry’s fiercest net neutrality defender three years ago. Now things are a little bit stickier.

Bryan Irace, an engineering manager who worked at Tumblr from March 2012 to November 2015, explained Tumblr’s culture to The Verge in an email, writing, “We all [participated]. As with many other causes (e.g. SOPA/PIPA), [net neutrality] was a hugepart of the company culture. A free and open Internet was a prerequisite for Tumblr to grow from an idea in David’s head into the platform that it is today… During my tenure there, Tumblr never shied away from speaking out about causes that the team collectively believed in….

Only 7 days to go until Kickstarter!!

Well, if all goes well :) But so far it seems to be^^.

So we thought we’d give you a quick outlook at what’s to come (as we have planned it!).

Next Thursday we will set the Kickstarter page to “live”, at around 3pm CEST.

We will send an email to those who signed up (except those that voluntarily dropped out) and those who added themselves to the mailing list. This email will contain the link to the Kickstarter. And some general flailing. Probably^^.

We will also post the info here (and on FB) at around the same time. Mail and post will probably be quite similar :))

Throughout the campaign we will post “Contributor’s spotlights” - shedding light on those that have made this Anthology possible. ((Thank you guys!!))

We will try to alternate between art and fanfiction posts and, while we have put them all in more or less the same “form”, we have not edited the answers. They made us smile and snort and wipe at treacherous tears and we hope you will love them just the same. Bring something to get the dog hair off though. :P

The Kickstarter will run for 30 days.

There are special rewards for the early bird tier and there are high tiers that are, due to their “nature”,  limited. 

We have also overhauled our stretchgoals and we cannot tell you how much we love the artwork that will be available as rewards for the campaign. 

Which isn’t part of the book, btw.

We cannot wait to show you.
