Looking to connect with Sailors/Boat Folks Show more
Always looking for more boat folks to connect with on here.
The folks who manage trunk also kindly made a sailing category so that it's easier for folks who want to connect to find each other.
The spouseband and I are not-so-salty liveaboard sailors in Puget Sound who plan to eventually venture out into the Pacific.
If I offend or upset you, I am completely open to criticism. I really appreciate interacting with you all, and if I screw up, you don't owe me anything, but I would be grateful for the opportunity to learn. I am well aware that I do insensitive or just bad things at times. I am human, but being flawed doesn't make my behavior ok. I promise that I will listen carefully, not get defensive, and do work.

🚨 Soni L is a stalker. Not metaphorically not hyperbolically, she’s a fucking stalker. Who’s targeted Marcia, Ro, Myself and this instance. She’s targeted us with racist hate and honestly Marcia has gotten the worst of it. I’m not gonna be quiet or cute about this. We’ve said “No”, “Leave us alone”, “You’re blocked” but still she finds us and drags herself into our mentions. This is abuse.
Well, I'm completely incapable of uploading pictures here, so those will have to come later. Anyways, we've been sailing the last two days and our first day out was an intense day with winds up to 20kts and some small waves. We ended up with two reefs in our main and were pushing over 7kts at points, which is a lot for Blackthorn! It was good practice for us without really being in danger, and it definitely came as a shock to my system after so much time sailing in gentle winds lately. #boatlife
Mauna Kea protectors Show more
"They've taken everything from us Hawaiians. This illegal government taking fish from our oceans. There's not enough food for people. People are on the streets. There's no housing for our people, poisoning our farmland, now they're taking away our sacred mountain. That's the last straw they're not gonna take this mountain," Walter Ritte, who chained himself to the cattle guard, said."

hey y'all, i'm gettin' really close to my goal on patreon so i can afford to do private art streams for my supporters~
consider becoming a patron to gain access to that AND all the stuff i post on patreon waaaay before i post it anywhere else, as well as exclusive content.
Please feel free to suggest patch ideas of literally any kind! (Particularly if you're #BIPOC and/or #Jewish! I want us to have what we want) Doesn't have to be, like, political? or whatever, although it can be. Really anything, including you're own arts possibly?!
(please boost 💚 )
July 4, Hawaii, Independence Show more
Neofeud is a game about my experiences growing up in Hawaii's ghetto, being a social worker & STEM teacher for poor, homeless, refugees, mostly non-white kids in slums of Hawaii the tour buses avoid, while living out of a van. 100% of sales go to putting a roof over my kids' head.
Autistic student graduation video that's going around Show more
If you haven't seen it, it's here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ine7xIlLxgc&feature=youtu.be
Basically, an entire graduating class and their parents/guests were good enough to be entirely silent while giving a standing ovation to their fellow student (who is autistic and extremely sensitive to noise) as he walked for graduation at PACE in New York.
The way it's being shared by NTs is very "disability inspiration porn," but what they're missing is the (to me) better angle.
request for financial help, boosts ok Show more
Between moving and not being able to work because I'm moving, I'm wiped out - and the move isn't even done yet!
If you can help out, either financially or by boosting, I'd really appreciate it. 💜
Thank you! 💜
Boat Spider Show more
This is big spider, who we noticed a few nights ago. They live down inside the trim-tab tube on our rudder. I caught them industriously spinning a web for the night.
Gonna take the whole "Don't scab on prime day" moment to promote one of my favourite alternatives to an amazon product.
Please support it, not just on prime day, but any time you need info on a film. Keep information free.
It took months, but I finally got nearly the entire Blue Goose catalog (c1946) scanned and posted. (I skipped the last few pages because they were basically just text.) I marked it all as Creative Commons in case you want to download some vintage produce for yourself. 🌿
Social is the primary social media platform for the forth coming fourth version of Play Vicious, a new initiative built to bring attention to the plethora of creative acts that don't get the shine they deserve.
