June 11th Int'l Solidarity with Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners 

oh and he's in a correspondence course to become a paralegal.

he is tough as nails and continues to insist on love and collective liberation despite betrayal, despite state violence, despite everything thrown at him.

donations are lower this year than normal b/c fundraisers have been harder to organize (plus all the things)

check out his art and consider making a donation at

Marius Mason is serving a 21 year prison sentence for environmental direct action, the longest of any ELF political prisoner (b/c of a "ecoterrorism enhancement").

He was incriminated by his ex who turned FBI informant.

He survived a stint in Carswell, TX that was

Guilty/Onions 

So, Imgur is one of my guilty pleasures.

This just hit there.

I'll be the first to say that the experience isn't one I can personally relate to.

But hot damn the humanity is.

Everybody is fighting a very hard battle.

Sometimes even just a warm word can do wonders. (Though sometimes it takes more than that.)

(CW: mention of self-harm in the screenshot, though it ends well.)

The Locomotive was the first to cover the song and we can all agree this is the worst of the three renditions.

The original A Message to You Rudy by Dandy Livingstone is better than The Specials cover.

1. Dandy's voice is silky smooth (and he recorded it while he had a cold!)
2. It has a sax solo
3. Rico Rodriguez's solo is better on the original than his one w/ The Specials
4. Sax and Trombone together blends better than trombone and trumpet
5. The original grooves more
6. Dandy didn't find out The Specials were covering it til he saw them perform live, _then_ got compensated which is sus

I had seen signs of animals eating from our fledgling garden.

Yesterday I saw a 🐦 in there.

This morning I saw my first 🐰 eating in there.

Pretty sure it was eating 🥕 tops.

Very on brand.

"Long centuries of benign interaction with the Plains Indians had taught Western wolves not to fear humans.

... early observers often remarked on how trusting wolves seemed, trotting before approaching horses like dogs or watching curiously as travelers passed within feet."

Three wolf pups were found in Colorado. 🐺🐺🐺

They are the first wolves native to Colorado since the state government, at the behest of ranchers, killed the last one in 1945.

This is a small step in the decolonization process of restoring keystone species and repairing the sacred bond wolves and humans once held.

My daughter witnessed a hawk swoop down to try and nab a little bunny in our yard.

The bunny side stepped the hawk *just* in time.

She placed a carrot near the bunny's favorite hangout spot, to help them feel better after the hawk scare.

The bunny didn't seemed interested, but this creature gladly took the offering.

This post on thinking like a front-end designer was really helpful. I've taken some CSS courses and dabble with it on side projects, but don't regularly code.

There were good reminders here and for those designers out there who never code at all, I think it's worth the read.

Tools like Figma and Penpot can help us approach design as if we coded, which makes for smoother handoffs.
