Trump’s press conference today held by Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, where they claimed that Trump had the largest inauguration turnout in history was nothing but authoritarian propaganda at work. 

Despite evidence (and estimates) to the contrary and photographic/first hand proof they are pushing out this claim. Then they are stating that anyone who says otherwise is a liar, and refused to take questions on the matter from the press. Do not ignore this, this was the first official as president and they made it clear what they’re going to be saying to the public these next 4-8 years and hold news organizations accountable when they report his baseless claims without question. Don’t let them make it easy to spread blatant propaganda.  

Kellyanne Conway: Trump White House offered ‘alternative facts’ on crowd size

ALTERNATIVE FACTS. That’s what they’re calling it.

*sneezes bullshit*

If you didn’t google or visit news sites or read facebook posts or make tweets about the inauguration today, that’s awesome, well done!

And now you can take everything you didn’t do today and do it double for the Women’s March on Washington tomorrow, for the ol’ one-two punch.  

Make it a famous protest. Make it the most watched protest in the history of the world. And then for every new protest you see, read about it, watch it, google it, give hits to news stories about it. 

Make the fascists in power in this country blow a collective vein because why are they watching them? They’re meant to be scared of us!

Teach the news outlets and networks that you don’t give a shit about the president, and if they want your hits, they need to give protest a voice.

Jesus Christ was a brown Jew in the Middle East, conceived out of wedlock in an arguably interracial if not interspecies (deity and human) relationship, raised by his mother and stepfather in place of his absent father.  He may not have had a Y chromosome.  He spent his early youth as a refugee in Egypt, where his family no doubt survived initially on handouts from the wealthy (You think they kept that gold, frankincense, and myrrh from the wise men?  Hell no, they sold that stuff for food and lodging).  He later returned with his parents to their occupied homeland and lived in poverty.

The religion of Jesus’s people has no concept of a permanent hell and instructed its priests on how to induce miscarriages.  Jesus explicitly rejected the concept of disability as a divine punishment.  He spoke out against religious hypocrites.  He had enough respect for women to let his mother choose the time of his first miracle.  He blessed a same sex couple.  He told a rich man that he must give up his wealth to get to heaven, and also told a parable about a rich man suffering in agony in presumably Gehinnom (basically Purgatory) just to hammer the point home.  He told people to pay their taxes.  He declared “love your neighbor” to be one of the two commandments on which all laws hang.  He commanded his followers to help the poor.  He commanded them to help the sick and the needy.  He spent time with social outcasts.  He healed the servant of a high priest during his arrest rather than fighting back.  He was put to death by the occupying government because he was a political radical.

Trump and his administration are xenophobic, misogynistic, racist, fear-mongering, warmongering, tax-dodging, anti-Semitic, anti-choice, anti-welfare, anti-equal pay, anti-LGBTQIA+, anti-immigration, support tax cuts for the rich, support Citizen’s United, want to keep refugees out of this country, want to limit our ability to speak against the government, plan to abolish the Affordable Care Act, and they wrap all of that up behind a banner of “Christian family values.”  If you support them, you have no right to call yourself a follower of Christ.

Fayum Mummy Portraits, dating from around 30 BC to the mid 3rd century AD. 

The portrait heads were attached to Egyptian mummies of the Roman period, covering the faces of the deceased In the top pictures, you can see now they were bound to the mummy. Dating from the time of the Roman occupation of Egypt, they are closest to Graeco-Roman artistic traditions. Around 900 are known to survive and they are some of the only surviving evidence of Classical panel painting traditions. Due to their burial in hot, dry conditions with the bodies, many have survived in excellent condition. 

The term Fayum comes from an area of graveyards (necropoli) where they were found in large numbers, buried in communal catacombs. 

Painted on wooden board (and sometimes on cloth), either in encaustic (wax) or egg tempera.

Viking Gilt Odin and Ravens Pendant, 10th Century AD

Silver-gilt pendant showing a male figure (Odin?) with hands around the necks of two large birds.

Odin is the god of poetry, wisdom, lord of the dead and is known as the All Father as the head of the pantheon of gods in the Scandinavian world. With his brothers, Vili and Ve, Odin created the cosmos out of the giant Ymir, whom they killed. Odin was married to Frija and their son,Thor, became one of the most important of the gods; he also had two other sons, Vali and Vidar, gods of vengeance, as well as Baldr, one of the most beloved gods.

Odin’s most important characteristic is his wisdom. One of the most intriguing myths tells of his acquisition of wisdom through self sacrifice on the world tree Yggdrasil. This is recounted in the Havamal: ‘I know that I hung on the wind-swept tree nine entire nights, wounded with a spear given to Odin, myself to myself on that tree, of which no man knows of what roots it runs. I took up the learned runes.’

Odin lives in Valhalla, or ‘carrion-hall’, where slain warriors sport each day and night. He is therefore the god of the dead, and Snorri Sturluson says that Odin could awaken the dead to learn secrets from them. As lord of the dead he is associated with ravens, carrion animals of the battlefields. He has two, named Hugin, meaning 'thought’, and Munin, meaning 'memory’. At the beginning of each day the two birds fly around the world observing the world of men, and each evening return to Odin to perch on his shoulders and recount all that they have seen.

Odin presides over the banishing of the Midgard serpent and Hel to the outer ocean and the underworld, respectively, as well as binding the wolf Fenrir. Odin is destined to die at Ragnarok when the Fenrir wolf will be free. The universe will be destroyed only to reemerge from the fires and chaos.

Hey all, my friend @damaskrosechicago‘s godmother is looking to sponsor someone who wants to attend the Women’s March but hasn’t got the financial means – I didn’t know anyone offhand who could go but couldn’t afford it, and it’s a bit time-sensitive obvs., so I’m tossing it out there to the readership. She’d like to sponsor one person to attend, up to about $100. 

If you’re interested, get in touch at @damaskrosechicago‘s askbox! 

Additionally, if you’re coming to DC and don’t know anyone feel free to hit me up. I’ll be there with my girl gang for the march, and you can definitely march with us.

Nakki is good people, I will vouch! 

I’m actually 40 cats in a Star Wars replica winter coat. But close enough.

Nakki is good cats in a Star Wars replica coat, I stand corrected.

The Fandom Fic Rec Days are back!

It is easy to make people look at art; all you need is a reblog. But when it comes to make people want to read fanfiction, it can get just a little more tricky.

To give writers more recognition, and to celebrate their stories, we’ve decided to organize the Fic Rec Days.

On February 10th, 11th, and 12th, you’re invited to rec your favourite fics, from the all time faves to the WIPs you’re currently enjoying.

How? In any way you want!

Create a post saying why people should read the fic!

Draw some fanart!

Create graphics/aesthetics!

Make a fic rec list!

Make a mix!

And so on.

Anything, really; there’s no way of rec’ing worth less than another.

This way, you will:

Promote writers’ fic, and maybe get them new readers.

Make their day, they will be super happy!

Maybe encourage them to write more (win-win!)

Any rules/extra information?

Tag your posts with #ficrecdays

Tag your fandom/ship.

You can always queue if you’re not available!

Readers, please consider leaving a comment on the fics you liked!

Above all else, have fun, make people happy (writers and new readers alike!)

Reblog to spread the word, and see you then! :D

Reblog if you think it’s a good way to practice writing.

Reblog if you have made friends because of fanfiction.

My sister called it a waste of time and I want to prove her wrong.

Tell your sister I’m now a professionally paid author because of “fanfic.”

Tell your sister to get over herself.

Tell your sister things that make you happy are never a waste of time

Fanfic is no waste of time. I ficced Star Trek so hard that eventually Paramount started paying me (through Pocket Books) to write it professionally. I spent more or less three months fairly high up on the New York Times Bestseller List because of having gotten really good at writing Trek while writing hundreds of thousands of words of fanfic. (Your first million words are for practice, David Gerrold always used to say, and I think he may be right.) 

And fanfic is a source of joy: for the reader, ideally, but at least for the writer. True joy is never wasted.

Tell your sister that I started writing fanfic as a teen and into my twenties, and the skills I learned from that got me two pub’d stories in my thirties.
Oh, and that there are fanfic pieces that still move me to tears.

A piece of fanfic moved me to tears today.

If your sister doesn’t want it, more for me! What a shame, to miss out on so much joy -

Eugene Andrew Cernan - American Naval officer and aviator, NASA astronaut, an advocate for space exploration, commander of Apollo 17, and the last person to leave footsteps on the moon almost forty-five years ago, has passed away at the age of 82. “It’s our destiny to explore. It’s our destiny to be a space-faring nation.”

Farewell, Gene. Now both the First and Last men on the moon have left us.
