The Quest for Equality

Today I decided to let someone else share their thoughts. I don’t normally “share” like this, but this is a wonderful piece from Nerdy But Flirty that really speaks to why our differences shouldn’t matter. ❤
Enjoy!!

Nerdy But Flirty

Not long ago, when I was doing an afternoon retro stream of Kirby’s Adventure on the NES, someone in the chat room brought up an interesting point. He said, “I applaud your courage in streaming and doing YouTube videos – most members of the LGBT community shy away from that, you know?” At first, I wasn’t really sure what to say in response. In truth, I usually avoid conversations that might get preachy in some fashion while doing media like that because, honestly, I know people come to these things for the gaming and to relax for a while — not to have some kind of ideology tossed at them.

But, in any event, I think he had a very good point. There are trolls all over the place, especially on the internet where they can hide behind a veil of anonymity and spit venom at people as they will…

Treasury Tuesday : Robots!

Good morning, everyone!! It’s been an exhausting week, so I apologise that I haven’t had time lately to get on the blogosphere. 😦 Luckily, I’ve resolved to try posting at least thrice a week, if not more! I think Tuesdays for certain will work, now for the rest of the week… any suggestions?

Speaking of Tuesdays, it’s that time again!! Treasury Tuesday! This week’s theme is a personal favourite of mine: r0b0ts!! [bzzt! beep! bzz!]

In case you weren’t aware of the intimate love I hold for our cold friends, here’s my absolute favourite painting I have ever created, based on a character from the children’s book I’m writing.

Wrig the Wrenchbot Escapes to the Wild

His name is Wrig, the Wrenchbot.

I have an undying passion for those cute, clunky guys. 😀 though, I’m sure we all do, yes?? With that thought, I figured it’d be a stellar idea to have a robot themed treasury post. All of my treasuries have distinct themes, but this is one of my favourite. I’d also like it noted that I try to update the treasuries often, so once an item sells, I’ll add new items — usually trying to put in another items from the same featured artists, if possible. If they don’t have another item that fits the theme (or the same, in the case of prints) I’ll look up another item. I’d also like it noted that I do not just create these slap-dash, willy-nilly, like some people…. I go beyond the first page (usually all of them, but it depends on the theme) & I use more than generic terms to search.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this weeks theme! I’m planning on making a new treasury soon — what do y’all think the theme should be about next time??

Tomorrow, I shall post about my latest adventure with Mod Podge!! Eee! I have some pretty awesome plans involving Mod Podge & a desk, but needed to test something first… oh, well! Tune in to see! ;D

Cheers!!
