Our courage will pull us through….POKEMON!! <3
I secretly wish I was named Eli: yet at the same time I don't want to discard my given name, Melody. Hence melod-eli. It's beautiful: my true name.
Poetics are my way of thinking: original.
I have this problem where I can't function if I am too similar to another individual: there's no use having two of me, so why should I exist?
I'm not sure what exactly I'm going to put here: it's more for a following site: finding inspiration for my work when I need it.
I'll do my best to keep myself entertained: no promises.
My most recent video was a really hard one to get in at under 4:00. I cut quite a lot out of the original script, and then I had to cut a number of things out of the video itself. So I just want to share a few of those things here:
Sometimes I think that the fact that we don’t really know who…
Up w/ Chris Hayes has obtained emails sent by Arthur Allen, the CEO of Florida-based ASG Software Solutions, pressuring his 1,300 employees to donate to Mitt Romney’s campaign:
I am encouraging everyone to go to the Romney for President web site and contribute as much as you can to his campaign for President, up to the maximum of $2500.00 per person. I am also encouraging you to contact all of your friends and relatives and ask them to support Romney and to go to the polls and vote on election day. … Please help ASG and yourself by contributing to the Romney/Ryan campaign.
Allen joins David Siegel, the Koch brothers and other CEOs who have also attempted to pressure their employees into supporting Romney. In June, Romney himself told business owners they should be telling employees how to vote:
I hope you make it very clear to your employees what you believe is in the best interest of your enterprise and therefore their job and their future in the upcoming elections. … I believe that will figure in to their election decision, their voting decision.
About five weeks after his first email, Allen sent another email asking those same employees to defer “some or all” of their salary until December to help the company make a $15 million interest payment.
Meanwhile, Allen proudly touts his use of a company-owned private jet, which, according to Aviation Week, costs over $50 million. According to a special advertising section on business aviation in Forbes earlier this year:
Configured with 17 seats, the Gulfstream becomes an airborne hotel, restaurant and conference room. “That’s where I live 250 days a year,” [Allen] says.

I’m sorry but this is absolutely disgusting. You don’t pressure your employees into making personal decisions, or tell them that they have to give up their salary for a presidential campaign. Mitt Romney has enough money to fund his own campaign.
And then this happened.
A couple of days ago I was watching Supernatural and the screen froze on this face.
This beautiful face.
WHAT IS THIS, I DON’T EVEN…
