So here’s the deal.

Thanks to one of my brother’s incredible lack of good judgment, my family is now financially in the hole. I can’t say much about what led to this situation without making my parents angry for oversharing, but we currently don’t have money to

  • pay for groceries
  • pay for my parents’ medications (and mine)
  • pay for repairs to my dad’s car
  • pay our phone bill and cable bill for the month
  • pay the mortgage on the house for the month

My dad does not get paid for at least another week, and my mom was recently put on pay restrictions by eBay (despite a fairly perfect record) because she got 2 negative reviews in the last couple months. She gets released payments as things are delivered to people—it would do nothing but help her if she got more positive reviews.

So, the solution to our financial troubles and my mom’s eBay troubles:  signal boost this around and see if you want to buy something from my mom’s [very large] eBay store. She’s always having sales, and she’s a very reliable correspondent if you have any questions about the things she sells. (However, please do not contact my mother asking her if you can send her money. She has stated that she would outright refuse and would prefer if someone bought something instead.)

LifeStraw purifies water instantly and inexpensively: it is a solution that can provide millions of under-privileged people with safe drinking water.

reblogging again because science

Seriously, Science. Do your thing.

IT’S ONLY 20$.
OH MY GOD

I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR TUMBLR TO GET WIND OF THIS

I’ll always signal boost this because not only does this work for people in under privilege areas it’s also proof of human ingenuity.

Really, we kids that grew up in the early 90s were all told about how we had to conserve water because drinkable water was such a rare resource and people in foreign lands were basically fucked up the ass because there was no way for them to get drinking water. 20 years and 20 bucks later one of the biggest problems humanity faced is a non issue. THAT’S FUCKING CRAZY!

Somebody should start one of those online donate things where people can donate money to buy these to send to areas with unsafe drinking water. But somebody other than me should do it because I don’t know how to do that kind of thing or get the word out.

this is amazing

FYI to everyone, if you purchase a LifeStraw through EarthEasy, they will send you a LifeStraw and also send one to the Philippines (through the Rotary Water Projects) so that the victims of Typhoon Haiyan can have safe drinking water. So if you were thinking of buying one, buy through them, not Amazon. It’s the same price.

Follow-up to above, you also can donate directly to the LifeStraw fundraiserhere without needing to buy one for yourself. You have drinking water right now. You can wait to get this. They cannot.

So there’s a new donation button on the side of my blog.

A couple of days ago this handsome fellow showed up on my doorstep. He was hiding in a bush and crying when I pulled up from grocery shopping, and came running out when I called out to him. Super friendly and tame, he and Rowan instantly hit it off and he’s been a complete angel since I took him in. His hip bones are still sticking out and I can feel his spine; the poor guy ate like a dying man when I put some food down for him. According to my dad, he’s been wandering the neighbourhood for about a week now, so he is very likely another case of someone dumping them in the outskirts of town when they got too big. 

Rowan thinks we should name him Caspian. I’m kinda diggin’ it.

I’ve been keeping him in my laundry room, separate from the other two till I can have him checked for feline leukaemia and anything else he might be carrying from wandering the streets. He’s also getting fixed today.

The vet bill, as it stands, is estimating to be around $150+. My finances right now are tighter than ever, due to a cutting of hours at work - I can afford to keep him, either permanently or at least until i can find a home that will take care of him, but the initial cost is hitting me hard.

So now, I’m reaching out to the internet for help - anything contributions towards the bill would be of great help, even if it’s just a couple of dollars! If you can’t afford to donate, reblogging would be greatly appreciated. Please help!

Starting today, your face, name, and personal information could appear in Google ads.
Read more about the new terms here. But most importantly: opt out here. 

I love that when I unclicked the box, it said ‘Your friends will be less likely to benefit from your recommendations’ as if NOT having my browsing and searching history show up everywhere they look is a negative thing…

jeez louise google what the shitfire.

I’m opening up commissions (as I need to pay my health insurance and stuff)! If you’re interested, please send an email at contactpapercrow@gmail.com with the following info:

 - Your tumblr username;

- Type of commission (sketch, lineless, etc.);

- Description of commission (poses, attitude, accessories/weapons, etc.);

- References (pictures and/or descriptions of the character(s));

- Special requests (animals, background, perspective, etc.).

I’ll draw almost anything, including NSFW and gore. However, if I feel in any way uncomfortable drawing something, I have the right to decline your commission. Backgrounds and animals aren’t my strongest point, but I’m willing to try my best.

Unless stated otherwise, commissions will be open at all times. When I receive your commission info, I’ll reply with my info about the payment. Payments will be made upfront via PayPal (in USD). When the payment has been received, I’ll start on the sketch which I will send to you for approval. Once approved, I’ll continue with the rest of the piece.

If you have any questions, feel free to send me a note or email. 

Signal boosts are appreciated :>

TYPHOON HAIYAN RIPS THROUGH CENTRAL PHILIPPINES

Typhoon Haiyan is a Category 5 storm, the strongest typhoon of 2013 and said to be the “most powerful ever” to make landfall (with winds near 195-200 mph). Perspective: Superstorm Sandy was at 95mph when it hit New Jersey; Hurricane Katrina at 129mph when it hit land.

The victims need all the help they can get. Cities have been leveled, buildings made of concrete were destroyed by strong winds and storm surges. Communications have yet to be reestablished in most of the areas affected by the typhoon. The full picture left behind by Haiyan has yet to be established yet the devastation reported on television is already extensive. The government is bracing for large-scale relief operations. Virtually 1/3 of the country has been ravaged by this natural disaster. And we need help.

stop reposting the suit guide

stop it

i’m not even going to say please anymore, just stop. stop posting things without at least the common decency of a reverse google image search

and honestly, if I catch you at it and you apologize and take it down, I’m not gonna be mad. really, I’m not, I’m not that easy to anger. in fact, I’ll be relieved that you handled it with decorum. but you should take away the lesson not to trust places like weheartit or imgur, and if I catch you at it and you refuse, accuse me of having a bad attitude, or start slinging [gendered] insults, that says nothin’ about anybody but you.

and if you’re still coming here from malefashionadvice, get off there, for real. what are you doing there. go to a men’s wearhouse and have them give it to you straight. trying to learn to dress yourself from malefashionadvice is like trying to learn classical greek from a badger.

Yo, a thing.

I see AK’s suit guide all the time on my dash, so I would appreciate it if you’d heed the creator’s advice and just please please remove it. 

If you really need advice on getting a suit for your needs then do as she says; go to an actual wearhouse. Thank you <3

all o’ dis ^
