Gross sobbing, like, Lucille-Ball-style. Cloud Atlas is killing me and you should all watch it. I kind of want to watch all over again right away.

It’s been a looong time since I’ve done a print giveaway and I’m thinking this is the perfect occasion!
You see, there are these flat file drawers I have filled with prints that have been deemed “unfit to sell”. These guys have little dents, scratches and blobs but are totally perfect to hang on your wall for FREE.
So to enter the giveaway all you have to do is reblog this post! Next friday, September 26th at noon I’ll be randomly selecting a group of people to receive some of these beauties!
Make sure you’re following me on Facebook and Instagram and be sure to sign up for the newsletter at www.jamesreadsmerch.com for the first word on new releases!
The Boles fire, 40 miles away, started in the middle of Weed and destroyed 100 homes in a matter of hours. That top pic is the view from just down our road; I want to cry.

I blinked one day and when I opened my eyes, it was normal to have an American army battling Americans on American streets. No one even calls it a war. But it is.
Don’t forget this crazy shit actually happened.
Don’t forget this shit is STILL happening
This happened while I was on vacation without internet access, and I still have trouble believing it’s not fiction. It feels about as real as the fanfiction I’m catching up on. The newscasters just refer to it as “Ferguson,” as if we all know exactly what happened, as if the information is publicized as widely as, say, “9/11”, and then they move on. They shouldn’t. It’s not trivial. It’s not old news yet. If it’s still affecting us, if the aftershocks are still in the news, it’s still current events. It still deserves more comprehensive news coverage.
On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s net neutrality comment deadline, internet users and tech companies will unite for the “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what’s at stake if we lose net neutrality, the “First Amendment of the Internet.”
Postmodern Jukebox’s TEDx Talk— “So thinking back to that original question, ‘What kind of music do you like?’—maybe ‘Everything’ isn’t such a bad answer. Maybe we don’t have to choose a favorite genre; maybe we can just stop judging music whether it’s good or bad and just take it for what it is and enjoy it.”
I identify with this comic an uncomfortable amount. Like Marten, I too work in a library, and I do not consider it my calling. It is not an uncomfortable place to work. But I can also see myself stagnating there because I hate change so much.
However! I recently got back from a trip and realized just how boring my job is! And I decided that I am going to get my career back on track! So! This is my pledge: this month, I WILL gather ideas and do some informational interviews. Things WILL change. I will NOT still be at my library when I am 60, unless it is as a patron with a vintage library card and lots of stories to tell the young’uns.
