Hullabaloo is a 2D hand-drawn animated steampunk film that hopes to help preserve the dying art of 2D animation. We want you to join us in making a short film that will showcase the world of Hullabaloo. In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.

For more information about Hullabaloo, its creators, and how you can help bring this story to life, visit here! Their goal is to reach $80,000 by October 1st, 2014, so every donation helps and help spread the word!

This Phone App Helps Transgender Users Change The Pitch And Tone Of Their Voices

glsen:

buzzfeedlgbt reports on this amazing app:

The app’s website states it will take at least 6 to 12 months to effectively alter one’s voice. This video clip features an example “before and after” segment, having a user sample her “original” and “altered” voice:

As one user of the app put it: “Voice can be a real liability. There are definitely large parts of this country, even this state, where it’s dangerous to be trans. It can be a matter of life or death.”

At just $4.99, this app is a far more affordable option for users than visiting a vocal coach or speech pathologist. What a great resource!

80S FANTASY

WHERE GORGEOUS SOUNDTRACKS AND AMAZING CONCEPT DESIGN LIVE AND DIE

My childhood.

Willow? Cheesy?

Peck! Peck! Peeeeeeck!

Very cheesy.

Ugh I love them all.

Some of my most favourite movies.. can’t be any cheesier than the movies today, at least they are lighthearted and fun :)

The Dark Crystal is really Jim Henson’s masterpiece.  If you haven’t seen it, do…and then remember that it was all done without computer effects.  

Also, the soundtrack is finally available on CD, etc.

history ladies kicking ass and taking names

So I got kicked out because

  1. I dared cry for help with regards to my parents viciously psychologically abusing me.
  2. I refused, absolutely, period, to give my parents absolute access to my medical records and personnel.
  3. I have a girlfriend.

I should add, I’m 37 and legally disabled.  I get a grand total of $782.00 a month.  They said they are going to sell the car they gave me (yet failed to put in my name) to replace mine, which they traded in towards two brand-new ones earlier this year.

My deadline to have me, my cats, and my things out is during the week between my birthday, and the sixth anniversary of the day my ex (from whom I am still seeking a divorce) suddenly threw me out of the house.

This followed a chain of events which includes both of them shouting at me to run an errand, complete with threats to have me committed (a favorite since I was 12), even though I was already on the floor in the middle of the hall, sobbing and begging them to let me go to my room.  This particular incident took place less than three hours after my primary physician ordered me to not only rest and do nothing, but take a vacation, something my parents denied because they hadn’t spoken with my doctor.

Does anyone happen to know what legal action I may or may not be able to take in Oklahoma?

Please reblog, and please, if you know any way to help, please help.

This is an IRL friend of mine, she’s really sick, and … I just.

Please help.

After awhile, you start to feel about your emotions like you do about your allergies—“Oh, lord, here we go again. Great. Oh, sweet jesus, this sucks. Argh, my sinuses! Arggh, my itchy swollen eyelids. Oh, man, do I need a Kleenex….” Come to think of it, that’s not a bad analogy—most of the time it’s a low level snorfle, but every now and then you have a serious attack and you’re laid up on the couch half the day, snivelling, and would just as soon not see another human being until the worst of it has passed.

Pity the equivalent of emotional Benadryl isn’t available over the counter.
