Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.

This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be. 

Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality: http://bit.ly/1iOOjoe

they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that

This impacts every internet user. Please signal boost the hell out of this and sign the petition if you are American

I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.

In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.

I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.

Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.

Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.

P.S. Signal boost this if you’re able.

Honestly, I was going to skip over this because I thought it would be one of those American court situations that a UK resident like me has no inclusion of, even though it will very much affect everyone. I’m glad I didn’t ignore it. Whether you’re from US, UK, Australia, etc… you can sign it!

Are there any plush toy makers out there? Could you possibly give an estimated quote for making these two into plush dolls?

I would love to have these two in full 3D form as they are my favourites. The rest of the cast would follow later depending on how much money I have. Satay is basically an upside-down chicken leg with a beak, wings and legs (the face itself could just be a sewn-on motif, not necessarily in 3D) and Crimsy is a misshapen sphere with stalk and hanging arms. The face can again be just a 2-Dimensional stitched design.

I am happy to pay between £50 and £80 for these each. Don’t mind the material at all, as long as it’s nice and soft.

It’s like trying to steal an expired coupon…

I received an email today that I’ve been having trouble accessing my Facebook account. Funny thing is that I haven’t used it in about 5 years and it’s emptier than a jar full of ghosts. It’s not one of those phishing mails either; it has a legitimate https link (which I’m still not going to click, that would be stupid) but it’s making it easier for me to decide whether or not I want to delete it. I only ever use it for information on MCM anyway…
