Personal Note:

  • Our eviction continues. Our landlord has progressed to quasi-stalking behaviors now.

FEATURED SURVIVOR: Patrick Stewart!

His father beat his mother all through his childhood and he’s been an activist campaigning against domestic violence for a million years! Patrick Stewart! Captain Picard! Sir Patrick! It doesn’t take two to make a fight! Violence is an unacceptable way to deal with conflict! Mrs Dixon, the only person who ever stood up to his father! Look up Refuge, the UK-based domestic violence charity Patrick Stewart supports! Listen to Oliver ramble disjointedly and utterly fail to do a Patrick Stewart impression!


We forgot to do our outro so I’ll do it here:

There’s a war going on.

And in the immortal words of Audre Lorde, “Your silence will not protect you.”
