right to know campaign

Donald Trump and his senior staffers are all using unsecured email servers. Right. Now.

If you paid any attention during the presidential campaign, you know that Donald Trump repeatedly harped on Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was Secretary of State. The controversy fueled the common “lock her up” chant at Trump’s rallies. And now something even more hypocritical and enraging about Trump’s staff information security has come to light.

People who is worried about what’s going on in Mexico

Please, let it be known internationally that there isn’t a single person from higher levels at the government who is trying to help us. Not the Senate, not a single deputy, no one. The president went to the school with the trapped little girl, took pictures and right now is smiling at a drunken congregation with his workers. SMILING DRUNK.

The people are BUYING stuff to donate to our neighbors and compatriots but the big chains of supermarkets are putting higher prices and aren’t donating anything.

The world has their eyes on us and those mothefuckers are smiling for the picture and gaining money from it.

There’s 12k million pesos up for political campaigns that the people NEED right now, because you know, those are our taxes, and they are keeping it all, hiding in the law they made up, they won’t put a single peso to reconstruct a city that hasn’t stopped falling since yesterday. Every hour there’s a new building falling. But they are keeping all for themselves, while the people is literally spending money they don’t have to help.


Please, I’m begging you, please. Let this be known internationally. Let them be ashamed of their crimes. Don’t let them smile while our people is dying on the streets.

Heart You 💜

Dear humans, there is nothing more beautiful than cheering others on and lifting yourself up. Lately, I’ve been trying to circle myself with people who do just that. I am a firm believer that the people you surround yourself with are the people that you will become. Sadly, I feel like we are taught that trashing people will somehow make you feel better about yourself. I also feel like we are taught that calling someone else beautiful somehow takes away from your own beauty. The strangest thing is, we are all only human, and yet we try to tear each other apart. Why? What do we benefit from trying to knock others and ourselves down? We all cry. We all have bad days. We all get embarrassed. We all overthink and get overwhelmed. But we also know how good it feels to do good, to smile, to make someone else smile, and to laugh so hard your cheeks hurt. At the end of the day we’re all human, so let’s just be each other’s shoulder to lean on, you know?

A few interesting bits:

  • The back stretching Wolfie does for example in the first episode of Season 1 - before he opens the safe - is something Max did during his audition in London. Lana saw that and loved it for the character.
  • His worst auditioning experience was with Peter Weir (Dead Poets Society). Max got so intimidated and nervous he didn’t get one sentence right, even though Peter Weir was encouraging him to try.
  • He doesn’t really like talking about Freier Fall right now, because it’s way too early. He doesn’t know how well the campaign went so far, but he asked for people to support them.
  • After the cast watched the whole first season together at Lana’s, Neil Young (who is Daryl Hannah’s bf) came up to him and hugged him and told him great job. Max says it was one of the best moments in his career, especially because his mom is a great Neil Young fan (we also know Max’ family visited him in Amsterdam this year and they all went to a Neil Young concert).
  • Max says he was doing yoga with Brian in the hotel room when they started hearing fans singing “What’s up” in front of the hotel in Positano.

Since Pluto was reclassified to a dwarf planet, people have decided that Pluto is just no longer a planet. What about the other majestic tiny planets that take on the harsh business of being a celestial body moving in an elliptical orbit around a star? Pluto is a planet, and so are Makemake, Haumea, Eris, and Ceres. Planet equality.

Force-A-Rama Gives to A Worthy Cause: Last Update!

Here’s the latest and greatest. 

In honor of our pal @legobiwan, the winner of my blog follower charity giveaway, @plannedparenthood is the recipient of $100.00, donated by me earlier this evening. While acknowledging that this is the internet and I do have to, to some extent, hope you all believe I’m not catfishing you, behold a screenshot from this endeavor: 

ALSO: You know what? ALL the charities I had listed are pretty great. So, with that in mind, the other 3 remaining charities are getting $25 a pop because why the hell not: 

National Alliance on Mental Illness

I may revisit this idea again in the future, because this has been tons of fun to put together. Thanks to everyone for following, and kudos to @legobiwan for choosing a very deserving cause!

How do I donate to support LGBT people in Egypt???

Hi there, I know it’s a long shot, but I wanted to see if anyone knows anything about how I, a queer American of Egyptian descent, can donate to support LGBT rights and/or refugees in Egypt. It’s heartbreaking to know that people are being arrested and violated just for existing, and I haven’t been able to find a single place that will take my money. I want to donate, or even produce a charity zine of DA content, but I can’t do that without a charity… any ideas?

I know the Human Rights Campaign does work in the region, so that’s definitely an option, but I’d really like to find somewhere Egypt or even Middle East specific if possible…

Related: if you’re part of the DA fandom, would you be interested in something like this? I’ve worked in layout/graphic design for a few years, so I was thinking of putting together a short zine of LGBTA+ content and either requesting proof of donation (say $10+) in exchange for including a piece of art/short story/exerpt of a longer piece (plus links to your various accounts & a printable copy of the zine, so think of it as a form of advertising too) and/or selling the final product for a few bucks.

Please reblog if you can! I’d really like to do something with this…

Yes, by campaigning for a different result at the next one. And at any by-elections that come up in the meantime.

That’s how it works. You get that, right?

Right?

“AGENT CARTER” Has a Lot More to Give

In episode 2, Agent Carter (Hayley Atwell) is driving into a dangerous night with the radio broadcasting a 1940’s “Captain America” serial.  Predictably, the Captain is once again rescuing the helpless girl in distress with a similar name to hers.  She shrugs and changes the channel. That’s when I fell in love with “Agent Carter”.  Clearly, the creative crew behind this well-written series had the same opinion of traditional Marvel Comic stories that this blogger does.


Officially, ABC only intended “Marvel’s Agent Carter” to be an eight-episode filler for their highly anticipated, highly promoted, but generally disappointing “Agents of Shield”. “Shield” was very much in the Marvel Comic mold; popping out lots of action and “strong female characters”.  Marvel was much applauded in the 90’s when they traded in their D-cup Damsels in Distress for D-cup female action heroes in black, sleeveless, tight-fitting dominatrix gear. Their target audience was still young males and thus their feminist message came off with the sincerity of a women’s studies paper written by Bevis and Butthead. In fairness to Marvel, their female heroes weren’t all that different from their male counterparts: nearly indestructible, always fearless, and always knowing and doing the right in a tireless campaign against evil – just like you and me!…Well, me anyway.


Agent Peggy Carter has proven to be different. Like Agent Carter, Clark Kent wasn’t well respected at his job; after all he was never around when the other reporters were getting the big “Superman” story.  Clark didn’t much care.  After all, under those square horn-rimmed glasses and double-breasted suit was a big chest full of self-esteem with an “S” on it.  In contrast, Peggy’s superpowers are learned and earned. Sure, she can take out a 200 pound gangster with a stapler and break a Russian code with pen and paper but it’s clear that her powers didn’t come from exposure to an unknown radioactive chemical but from hard work and perseverance, just like a real person. Deception by people she trusted and the disrespect of her peers brings her real anger. The support of a true friend brings her real joy. 


Television is awash in pretty girls with hourglass figures and broad shouldered, square jawed men that look good, stand in the right place and deliver their lines clearly, but that’s about all they do. Every now and then an ensemble of skilled actors and actresses show up and prove themselves worthy of telling reaction shots or comic asides that are essential to rich story telling. It’s impossible to imagine “Agent Carter” working if Jarvis had been played simply as the stuffy butler, Angie the ditzy waitress, Dottie the evil bitch or Dooley the blowhard boss. Each of the major characters is capable of making the audience laugh, cry or cringe from one scene to the next.


Television season finales have a deserved infamy for big confrontations, big explosions and cliff-hanger endings that they hope will leave the audience in nail biting suspense but far too often end up leaving them scratching their heads. Even a masterfully written, shot, and acted series like the 90’s “Twin Peaks” concluded with a swath of chaos, destruction and “who’s gonna’ live and who’s gonna’ die?” questions that never were resolved. “Agent Carter” got it right. Justice was served…sort of. Villains got their comeuppance…some of them. Troubling personal issues were put to rest…for now. There is plenty of room for more of what “Agent Carter” has given us, as to whether the Nielsen numbers, market share projections and network sponsorship will offer us the chance to see it is the real cliff-hanger.
