most of my Saturday was spent looking up stuff about Bina48.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BINA48BINA48 is a project of Terasem Movement, Incorporated (TMI)[5] and is designed to test whether a person’s consciousness can be downloaded into a non-biological or nanotechnological body after combining detailed data about a person through the use of future consciousness software

A lesbian of color (who is married to a trans woman) becomes the model for an ultra advanced AI system.This is huge.Other links…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4KHuQYm_z4https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XaDB4HmV8ykhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uvcQCJpZJH8

so lemme get this… the developer/ceo of the development company is a jewish trans lesbian woman and the highest paid female ceo in america, and this project is based on her wife, a black lesbian woman, and both are mothers with children from previous relationships who they have now each legally adopted???
this exists in the actual world and  people still think sci fi can only be about straight cis vaguely-christian white men…….

chescaleigh:

- If you haven’t already, make sure you have an online portfolio. If you don’t have the web skills, you can go really simple and just buy a $10 domain and set up a tumblr with your work on it. Don’t stress yourself out over having a “perfect” site. As long as it’s easy to get to and navigate, you’re fine. Less is more. 

- Create some cute business cards (with your portfolio link on there) and start handing them out! I use overnightprints.com for all my promotional stuff. They’re affordable, have fast turn around and great quality. Think of every outing as a chance to pick up a freelance client or get a job. As they say, it’s not what you know, but who you know. 

- Go to as many professional networking events as possible to meet people and get job leads. Some places to look for networking events: your local chamber of commerce, meetup.com, local POC groups, local LGBT groups, small business associations and women’s groups. Hit up Google with your city and the type of networking group you’re looking for. Once you go to one event, you’ll meet people who can suggest other groups worth checking out. Some have membership fees, but most will let you go to one or two events before joining or by paying a small entry fee.

- If you can afford it, join your local AIGA (American Institute Of Graphic Arts) to meet other designers, take classes, go to events and get job leads. I think the basic year membership is $50. They also have free non-member events, so check for those too. 

- Don’t under estimate the power of freelance! You can always take on a few clients while you’re looking for full time work. Put together a rate sheet that covers what type of work you can do (print, web, flyers, brochures etc) and how much you charge for each service. Make sure to always have a written contract with clients and ask for 50% up front and the remaining 50% once the project is complete. 

- Don’t work for free! Not even for friends and family. Your time and talent is valuable. Don’t give it away!

- Get the most recent edition of the Graphic Artist’s Guild Handbook Of Pricing And Ethical Guidelines so you have an idea of how to price your work AND get access to tons of free contract outlines to use with clients. Seriously, this book is everything. 

Here are some sites I’ve used to find graphic design work - 
http://creativehotlist.com - I think it’s around $35 for an account, but I know lots of people who’ve found work here, myself included. 
http://designjobs.aiga.org - you need a membership to see all the listings
http://creativecircle.com - this is a creative staffing agency, so they place people on jobs that can last anywhere from a few days, few weeks, months to full time. They send out tons of personalized daily job listings so there’s lots of opportunities to work if you’re willing to apply to as much as possible.

That’s pretty much it! Best of luck!

hi, so, uh

I assume a lot of people are hailing joan rivers as a feminist icon mainly because she opened comedy up to women through her standup

but, uh, unsurprisingly she was not the first to do that

image

that’s moms mabley.  she was a comedian in the 20th century and was pretty much one of the few popular female comedians during that time.  she did a lot of things people were uncomfortable doing at that time, like incorporating talks about racism into her standup and such.  she was really popular

(psst she was even doing comedy before joan rivers was born)

she also inspired quite a few comedians you probably know about today like bill cosby and whoopi goldberg (whoopi even did a whole documentary on her because she was so enamored with her)

she was also a lesbian and did standup in androgynous clothing a lot of the time.  and she was african american.  makes you wonder why you’ve probably never heard of her before huh

so before you go give all the credit to joan rivers for getting women into comedy or being a feminist icon or whatever, remember moms mabley and her contributions too

the fact that white people are cosigning this is driving me insane

Bruh in the first pic is completely done with this shit.

If you look carefully at all the pics, many folks are

I’m so done.

This is why I refuse to fuck with white people on a base level, they’re inhumane as fuck, justify racist shit like this, and continue to objectify Black people namely women on a gross level. I am so done.

Is this in response to nicki not wanting this scrotum to photoshop her face onto the Anaconda promo pic?

sunshinedorkface:

I have Keratoconus which is a genetic condition that causes the cornea to turn cone shaped. It makes it hard to see, because bright lights form halo effects, obscuring the vision, and making it difficult to read, and in my case, draw. The day before my birthday, I went to a specialist, who gave me three options; Cross linking eye surgery, (which is still considered experimental in the United States, and not covered by insurance) Intact lenses (also not covered by insurance) or complete cornea transplants (Which is covered by insurance, but much riskier than the other two listed). 

Although there is some hope, since the Intacts is currently going through trial runs and studies for it to be approved by most insurances, I will learn by october, if I will be an acceptible participant for the study, and receive the intacts at either a reduced price, or not pay at all.

But, worse case scenerio, I will have to pay $5000-9000 per eye.

I cannot afford that, on my walmart salary. My family is barely skating by with what we have, and we still struggle every month to make ends meet. There is absolutely no way we would be able to pay for this surgery.

And, that really scares me. 

As an artist, and a writer, I depend so much on my eyes. Keratoconus is not curable, and will only worsten, if they go untreated. I NEED this surgery, but I can’t pay for it, with the few hundred bucks I get from putting up with walmart customers.

So, I turn to you, Tumblr. This is very hard for me to do, since I was raised to believe that if someone can work for their money, they very well should, and reserve the free help to the people who truly cannot help themselves. But, if you feel like you can, and want to donate, please feel free to send that money to my Paypal, at maryzolgarcia90@yahoo.com

If you want to help in another way, please spread my Commissioning Info or feel free to commission a piece of artwork from me directly by sending me an ask here, note me at my Dev.artor Email me your information at the same Email stated for my Paypal.

Simply re-blogging this really helps as well.

Thank you for taking your time for reading this out.

I’ll share this before I close the blog because it makes me sad.
