Nomadic Wolf Cub

Secondary blog to liveandlovepoly, where I explore my other interests, causes and fandoms.

5 weeks. I have 5 more weeks of watching helplessly as my dad emotionally torments my mom. I don’t know what to do, how to help her, how to stop him, and I’m stuck here for 5. fucking. weeks.

If I grit my teeth any harder, they’ll break right out of my gums.

“Years ago I learned a very cool thing about Robin Williams, and I couldn’t watch a movie of his afterward without thinking of it. I never actually booked Robin Williams for an event, but I came close enough that his office sent over his rider. For those outside of the entertainment industry, a rider lists out an artist’s specific personal and technical needs for hosting them for an event, anything from bottled water and their green room to sound and lighting requirements. You can learn a lot about a person from their rider. This is where rocks bands list their requirement for green M&Ms (which is actually a surprisingly smart thing to do). This is also where a famous environmentalist requires a large gas-guzzling private jet to fly to the event city, but then requires an electric or hybrid car to take said environmentalist to the event venue when in view of the public.
When I got Robin Williams’ rider, I was very surprised by what I found. He actually had a requirement that for every single event or film he did, the company hiring him also had to hire a certain number of homeless people and put them to work. I never watched a Robin Williams movie the same way after that. I’m sure that on his own time and with his own money, he was working with these people in need, but he’d also decided to use his clout as an entertainer to make sure that production companies and event planners also learned the value of giving people a chance to work their way back. I wonder how many production companies continued the practice into their next non-Robin Williams project, as well as how many people got a chance at a job and the pride of earning an income, even temporarily, from his actions. He was a great multiplier of his impact. Let’s hope that impact lives on without him. Thanks, Robin Williams- not just for laughs, but also for a cool example.”

No. 168 “The Unarmed” 

Rest In Peace…

to Michael Brown, John Crawford, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Renisha McBride, Oscar Grant, Sean Bell And the countless other lives that have been taken away from this world due to prejudice.

And an honor to the many people in Ferguson standing up, fighting, hoping that some kind of justice can be had in the midst of chaos.

Sometimes I’m not sure if I jack off because I’m horny or because it’s the only way to let off the excess energy my depression won’t otherwise allow me to exert in more productive ways.

Do you ever have that outfit you wear so often you think

"Yes, this is the outfit I’d be drawn in everyday if I was a cartoon"

When I worked at an afterschool program for a middle school, the class I taught was Japanese, so my students were all nerds like me. During the winter months, I pretty much wore the same thing every day, and when my students noticed this, they said I was like a teacher in an anime. When summer came and my wardrobe changed, they of course noticed and expressed their disappointment, to which I responded:

"What? It’s a new season."
