Ready for another game of kitty cat hide-and-seek? Good luck finding the clever kitten hiding in this photo! Prepare for chills the moment you spot it.

According to the sneaky cat’s human, “I was having a nice meal and then I saw the little bastard, sitting there, staring right at me.”

We can still feel the power of that feline stare.

i did an important art project today

Design is available here! Just print out on 8.5x11″ paper, cut along the gray lines, paint the back of the paper with craft glue (i used Mod Podge) and wrap it around a plain glass pillar candle. Voila: your very own secular and/or idolatrous Space Mom candle! Please remember that Carrie Fisher’s dad was Jewish every time you look at it, cause, you know.

Brides in Japan are Turning Their Long-Sleeve Kimonos Into Stunning Wedding Dresses


I love this so much! I think it’s awesome that they evoke the feel of kimono and don’t alter the garment in any permanent way, but they’re so fun and modern at the same time

The National Center for Lesbian Rights (Despite the name this organization lobbies for the rights of all LGBT people) : http://ift.tt/MrIm5k

Please, please add more organizations to this list in reblogs. I know there have been a lot of statements and lists like this going around the internet and tumblr. And of coarse not everyone has the means. But where in it for the long haul with this one, so if you have the time or the means please give what you can, or encourage others to do so. 



Calls work best, as someone has to answer, but hand written letters stand out as well. Please tell them about any or all of your concerns in a calm respectful manner. Congress elections are often pretty close and so calling can have an impact.

I love you all.

Hi, this is awesome. Consider also supporting Jewish movements. It’s frightening – and a symptom of the anti-semitism/apathy in social justice movements towards Jewish issues – that you can have a swastika on here but no mention of Jewish causes. I humbly suggest the American Jewish Committee: 


which is currently teamed up with the Islamic Society of North America to fight Islamophobia AND anti-semitism.

Scrooge McDuck and family are banking on a stellar cast, not just ‘80s kid nostalgia, when DuckTales returns to TV in the summer of 2017. Disney XD announced Friday the flock of high-profile actors and comedians who will lend their voices to the reboot of the Emmy-winning cartoon franchise.

David Tennant (Doctor Who, Jessica Jones) leads the cast as Scrooge, while the triplets Huey, Dewey and Louie are voiced by Danny Pudi (Community), Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) and Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live), respectively. Rounding out the main cast are Beck Bennett (SNL) as strong-jawed pilot Launchpad McQuack, Toks Olagundoye (Castle) as Mrs. Beakley and Kate Micucci (Steven Universe) as Webby Vanderquack.

It’s been 23 years since Tad Williams wrapped up his staggering fantasy saga, Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn. Now, Williams has returned to Osten Ard, the quasi-Medieval realm in which the series was set. His new novel, The Heart of What Was Lost, picks up almost where its predecessor left off. 

For those new to the series, critic Jason Heller says, “It’s easy to follow Heart’s plot and characters, but knowing the broader context makes them far more resonant; in that regard, the novel works better as a vignette than an introduction to the series.”

After a sobering election, feminists are fighting back with tattoos

According to a number of tattoo artists Mic contacted, there’s been an influx of politically charged requests for tattoos, ranging from people wanting their own personal beliefs now inked into their body, to people simply wanting to be inked with something that reminds them of the good in the world. And that feeling of changing yourself, on your own terms, feels especially important right now as people feel like things are changing around them without their permission.

We are very proud to be an official bus sponsor for BUST Magazine’s effort to help people attend the Women’s March in Washington D.C., ensuring that Donald Trump’s inauguration on January 20 will be followed by a massive level of protest on the 21st. Below is a message from the Magazine itself: 

Here are a few reasons why BUST will take action and why you should too:

Fight Hate with Peace. Love Trumps Hate.
In the wake of the election and its results the country saw an outburst in hateful harassment, from swastikas spray painted on cars to hateful notes stating ‘Make America White Again.’ According to the Southern Poverty Law Center there were 867 cases of hateful harassment or intimidation in the U.S. just during the ten days after the election. It is important to show those who feel emboldened by hostility that we will not give in to hate. The Women’s March on Washington will follow in the peaceful footsteps of so many civil rights marches before it. Their website cites some of the principles of Kingian non-violence, “The nonviolent approach helps one analyze the fundamental conditions, policies and practices of the conflict rather than reacting to one’s opponents or their personalities.”

Reproductive Rights are at Stake. We Trust Women.
President elect Donald Trump made some troubling promises and comments during his election campaign. With his promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act comes the looming effect of repealing its coverages of women’s birth control and prenatal care. He also spoke strongly about nominating Supreme Court Justices that would overturn Roe v. Wade. Trump has also made promises to defund Planned Parenthood, which is already banned from using federal funds for abortion services. All the cut would do is deprive individuals from access to contraception, cancer screenings, STD testing and treatment, etc. Reproductive rights are inherently our own as women. Marching on inauguration day will show Trump and his administration that they will not be taken from us.

For Our Future. The Future is Female.
Millions of little girls and young women growing up in the United States will look to our president for guidance and as a role model – Donald Trump has demonstrated time and time again his sexist behavior and lewd views on women in general. March to show the girls and women of our future that they matter and they too have to power to change this country’s future.

To Demonstrate Unity. The People United will never be Divided
Along with Donald Trump’s lewd and sexist comments were a slew of racist and islamophobic statements made throughout his campaign. His characterization of undocumented Mexicans and Latinos as ‘rapists’ and ‘criminals’ and his administrations over-willingness to link Islam to radicalism has made many feel uncomfortable to say the least and unsafe. The Women’s March on Washington is about unity of all people standing up and refusing to be oppressed. To stand together in solidarity for women’s rights means we will also stand together for the rights of all people and causes.

Exercise Your First Amendment Right. We Will Not Be Silent.
The first amendment gives us the right to free speech, petition, religion, press and assembly. Too many people get caught up in speech and not enough in action. This is an opportunity to legally and lawfully stand up for your rights. A mass assembly of people sends a message to the administration and all who support it: We will not be silenced.

Protection of Sexual Assault Survivors. Still Not Asking For It.
Given that Donald Trump was accused of sexual assault and will soon hold office, many survivors feel unsafe and left behind. Marching for women’s rights would send a message to survivors of sexual assault that they are not alone and that there are others in this country that care about their protection and well-being.

Meet Other Organizers/Organizations. No One is Free When Others are Oppressed.
The effort to stand up for women’s rights does not end when the march ends. Every day in communities across the country there are local and national organizations working towards a common goal. Coming to the Women’s March on Washington is a great way to network and meet organizers from all over the country.

BUST will be there on January 21, interested in meeting up? Our bus is currently sold out, but join our Facebook Event for updates on how you can join us on the day.

See you in Washington!
