jaynells: oscar the grouch (Default)
So, I just started working with ONE DC, an organization dedicated to promoting economic and racial justice in Washington, D.C., with a focus on low-income communities. Our recent campaign looks at the proposed 2012 D.C. budget. Mayor Gray's planning $187 million in cuts, and 60% of those cuts are to human services -- programs for D.C.'s most vulnerable residents.

So here's a video we shot about the situation:

I don't have that many people friended/subscribed/following me/etc., so if you can boost this signal, I'd greatly appreciate it. Especially if you're from the District, or have friends or family there. But if you're not anywhere near DC, please, still feel free to repost!

1. Oh my sweet Lord, I haven't posted since September 2010. Nooo! I've really been neglecting the whole "maintain a web presence in order to shamelessly pimp let people know about the webcomic once we've actually got it up and running and any other projects." Time to friend/add people!

2. That webcomic mentioned in my first entry is still a thing. Still very much a thing. Our fabulous artist, Kristen, has a full and busy life and she's juggling lots of projects. But it's definitely happening.

The comic itself? It's a buddy show, in webcomic form, about rebel fantasy creatures living on a dystopian world. IN SPAAAACE. The buddies are a drug-addicted manwhore elf and a neurotic merman who can't swim. If you like your buddy stories homoerotic as all get-out, than boy, do we have the webcomic for you. Eventually.

3. In the meantime, here, have one of Kristen's drawings of one of our supporting characters, Carmen:

4. One of Kristen's other projects is blogging about food politics -- eating locally, farming ethically, that kind of thing -- at Change.org. You can find her posts here.

5. I submitted a script to the Nickolodeon Writing Fellowship. If I get in, I get staffed on a TV show. They only pick four people a year. Ulp.
