Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”

Shut up already.

The ALS Association has a 4-star rating from Charity Watchdog. 

And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection. 

As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…

A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier.  Her dad has ALS.  The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.

This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp.  And they did.  She posted pics.

So if you feel like bitching about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.

That, and don’t a lot of charities only put a relatively small amount towards their main goal or whatever anyways? Even if ALSA was committing such a sin, it sure as hell wouldn’t be alone in that regard.

Did up some Ryuken-Yon - probably my last set for this weekend but you never know. 

The teeth on the Atlas were a BITCH. I think I redid them four times before I was 90% happy with how that came out.

Decided to keep going with doing a few merc regiments, so I went with Burr’s Black Cobras. We’ve got a Dervish, a Thunderbolt (Unseen), Thunder, Enforcer, and a Catapult.

This is a summary of college only using two pictures; expensive as hell.

That’s my Sociology “book”. In fact what it is is a piece of paper with codes written on it to allow me to access an electronic version of a book. I was told by my professor that I could not buy any other paperback version, or use another code, so I was left with no option other than buying a piece of paper for over $200. Best part about all this is my professor wrote the books; there’s something hilariously sadistic about that. So I pretty much doled out $200 for a current edition of an online textbook that is no different than an older, paperback edition of the same book for $5; yeah, I checked. My mistake for listening to my professor.

This is why we download. 

Spreading this shit like nutella because goddamn textbooks are so expensive. 

not necessarily art related but as someone who couldn’t afford their textbooks this semester this is a godsend

REBLOGGING because after a little digging, I found my $200 textbook for free in PDF form.

friendly reminder that this exists since I know we’re all going back to college soon

Will reblog every time I see it.

Today’s efforts while gritting my teeth through 10,000 hours of conference calls - some Kell Hounds. (Assassin, Archer, Awesome, Blackjack, Penetrator, Scarabus, and a Rifleman!)

Some more pictures of my Sword Of Light battlemechs that I’ve been working on. They consist of a Venom, a Wolf Trap, a Lynx, a Komodo and a Marauder. Note the unit emblems I’ve added to a few of them using waterslide transfers- getting the hang of those. Also getting better at cockpit shading - the Lynx was done recently and I think the cokpit colours look very nice.

Nice work! That Lynx looks pretty rad.

By the way, you might think about adding a second light source in the future, so the photos show off your minis even better.

I’m jealous of your jeweling skills on the cockpits. Also a bit weirded out that you were painting those guys up at the same time that I was doing a very similar composition Arkab Legion lance.

"On Demographics."

Following the news this week made me really, really angry and I don’t think some people realize just how many Americans are affected by aggressive and militarized law enforcement. We need to call for immediate police reform for the sake of the kids coming up right now.

This is amazing, Blue.
