Dreamworks is doing something even Pixar hasn’t tried: A black female heroine

DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.

I hung out with a friend today, who I realized has never disappointed me. She’s super awesome. She’s an amazing ally, and just a really good friend even when I was a crappy person, before I got sober. So I feel really grateful to have her in my life.

I’m always impressed by her honesty and her boundaries.

I keep hearing white people say “yeah I’m anti-police, but, sometimes you gotta call them….”

And usually they’re calling them on people of color. So… that’s some pretty low-level bullshit, not any kind of complicated fuckery at all.

For most Black people, the definition of progress is college educated Blacks being drafted by the White social order to be used as a bourgeois buffer zone against the masses of Black people.

I was dinking around the settings and I saw the option to enable SSL and I was like “whaaaa?” especially because there was no ‘learn more’ button. So I did some research.

If you don’t want to read the article what I got from it is that SSL is added security that everyone should have but Yahoo didn’t want add it because capitalism, so they added it and made it opt in.

Truth or Consequences by Rachel Lee

Grace Jones in Boomerang (1992)

yes Strangé

I just recently discovered how AMAZING Grace Jones’s music is. I looooooooove her.

I’m really worried about being passive aggressive in my communication. Especially when I blog. The other day I almost wrote this super fucked up post and then I didn’t because it made me feel SO gross.

Then I went to this grant thingy and I talked to someone and I said I was worried about being denied grants if someone found my work offensive. And we talked about it, and I told her that I talked about white supremacy in a what that was challenged all white people, and I was worried that if anyone googled me and looked at my blog they might decide I was a reverse racist or something.

I felt very proud of myself for doing some positive risk taking and expressing it, and closing a bit more of the gap between this blog and my daily life.

Two pages from my submission to the next Moonroot zine. Issue #3

The whole bit is here: http://annavo.wordpress.com/zines/submission-for-moonroot-zine/

This is great!

I’m really happy that I’ve met so many great people the last few months. :D

I’m really excited because I have some awesome irons in the fire right now. Zines and awesome zinesters I’ve met have really helped me soooooooooooo much c3 pretend that’s a heart

Monday I’m going to set a schedule to write my new zine.  It’s going to be big and awesome.  I need to start it.  I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about it, now I need to do it. 

I just remembered I have yogurt and I got really excited about it.  I get really distracted sometimes.

So, it’s good that I spent a lot of time thinking about this zine because, once I sit down it’s likely the blank page will be intimidating, I KNOW the topics I want to cover, and even if I get distracted by yogurt or cartoons or the sudden desire to clean my toilet, I know what the zine is about.

I’m really excited about the cover art and the art that will be in it.
