Please share this far and wide. This is video of police firing onto a peaceful protest in Ferguson. This is happening. This is happening today, right now.
I can’t be there to stand with my black brothers and sisters at the protest, but this is what I can do. Please share this video, please keep talking about it.
It contains loud, repetitive high-pitched sounds and violent flashing/strobing lights, for those like myself who are sensitive.
My heart is with the Black community of Ferguson and their allies. Keep fighting, brothers and sisters.
My heart is with the person filming this. I hope you are safe.
No justice, no peace.
This is so FUCKING SCARY
what the fuck is going on
For real, should I be callin news stations or something? This made me nauseous to watch

Homestuck is a webcomic written by Andrew Hussie, featured on a website called MS Paint Adventures. It attracts many followers worldwide due to its video game themes, plot development, and lovable characters. Despite its sci-fi and fantasy nature, many people find Homestuck to be rather relatable.
It is a story about four kids (John Egbert, Rose Lalonde, Dave Strider, and Jade Harley) who all want to play a new video game called SBURB that just came out. Little do they know that not only will the game seal the fate of bringing the apocalypse to earth, but they will also be the heroes put in charge of saving their universe.
In an alternate universe, twelve alien kids, who call their species “trolls”, experience the same fate as the kids whom you’ve already been introduced to. Finding evidence of success from the human kids’ session, the trolls seize opportunity to communicate with the kids in order for both sessions to save their universes.
Without trying to give too much of the plot away in case you’re curious to read it, I will say there is a third universe involved. In this universe, the guardians from the kid’s universe are now the children in this universe, and the kids are the adults (basically a swap in age and family role). These kids will also be destined to play SBURB, and they will be destined to meet the kids you were first introduced to.
From an outsider’s perspective, Homestuck appears to be a long story with nothing but confusing wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey issues and the instabilty of all that is space, but if you come around to reading it and appreciate it for its video game-like structure and sarcastic humor, you’ll learn that Homestuck
is about friendship
is about family
is a story about love
Four kinds of love, to be exact
Including themes of forrbidden love
… and it’s about loss.
It’s a story of self-doubt
It is a story about reevaluating your life decisions
and suffering the consequences of your decisions
It’s about the fear of living in someone’s shadow
It’s about gaining confidence so that you may someday fly
It’s about helping everyone out no matter how people view your actions
It is about recognizing the intelligence and beauty in the person whom you care most about, regardless of gender
It’s a story of betrayal
It’s about coping with apathy and bipolarity
It’s about maintaining your strength while staying true to your heart
It’s about self-esteem issues
And it’s about acknowledging that, no matter where you’re from, everyone is equal.
It’s is about how we, as people, must work as one despite our cultural upbringings and differences so that we can work together and make the most out of the life we are living.
So we have to work together and stay positive
No matter what trouble lies ahead
… no seriously there’s a lot of trouble that lies ahead I am not even joking here

I’m enamoured with She Who Fights Monsters as a concept. On the surface it’s a game about a badass princess fighting bad guys! But the tragic and gruesome nature of the lore belies its original implications.
In this world, the etheral planes that house angels and demons feed on intense human emotion, both positive and negative, and enough passion from a distraught or besotted person draws the ethereal planes closer to the human realm, allowing monsters, angels and demons to enter the real world, morphed by the emotion of the unwitting summoner.
Princess Eodi is the heir to the throne of a kindgom ruled by a monarchy obsessed with aesthetic and beauty, when she acquires a scar on her face when accidentally tripped by a blacksmith running from guards for an accused crime (Sounds familiar to Chimneyspeak readers). Shunned by her vanity-obsessed family and confined to the castle to be hidden from the public, Eodi’s rage and thirst for revenge yanks the ethereal planes dangerously close to the corporeal one, allowing monsters and angels to the world en masse. Unable to live a life of solitude and exile, Eodi steals the GodWard, a massive, ugly sword (yet light as a feather in the hands of the nobility tasked to keep it) used to kill encroaching angels and demons in times of plane overlap. She escapes the castle’s keep with the GodWard, leaving it defenceless to any and all summoned spirits.
She then travels the kingdom in search of the blacksmith that gave her the scar, cutting a swathe through the angels and demons summoned by the ugly world she was hitherto ignorant of, such as:
- Equivocal Faust -(pictured) An angel summoned by the love and passion of the Tower of Covet, a tower used to keep those obsessed with sex, drugs or critical, non-pious thought away from society. Eodi slaughters the angels that guard the tower’s patrons, angels that moan and writhe when Eodi attacks them. The tower is made of tall, fleshy maroon ceilings and intertwining pillars, the walls covered with phallic and sapphic imagery and statues. The room in which the boss battle takes place is filled with books stacked on enormous shelves, the ceiling has a star map on it. Equivocal Faust has standard ground pound attacks that have to be dodged, and leg sweep attacks that have to be jumped over, but his health bar is made of sections, at the end of which he asks a question. Faust is an angel that feeds on critical thought, and the player answers based on one of four choices, the last of which Eodi ignores the question and screams rage and death at Faust. While the player is conditioned to answer sensibly by other multi-choice questions in games, each of the three sensible answers will restore Equivocal Faust’s health a section, as he finds pleasure from the act of critical thinking when Eodi responds in kind. Only when Eodi shirks Faust’s questions and starts to scream at him does he stop gaining his health back. When killed, Equivocal Faust morphs back to a frail old man that explains that he was bored in his life, having lived so long that all passions and pleasures had become dull to him. Eodi asks where to find the blacksmith that accidentally hurt her, and the human Faust points her in the right direction before he dies.
More boss fight ideas to come! This is fun.
I NEED a game like this to be made. If i knew how to make games i would help get this game to alpha and kickstart the shit out of it.
My inner cynic likes it.
I will keep blogging this until Christmas is over!
