Trying to Protect a Reef With an Otherworldly Diversion
“In a stifling warehouse filled with bodies — ceramic replicas and false starts — [sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor] fusses over their lips and noses. Gets the hair just right. Adjusts their clothing.
Then he sinks them in the sea.

Ongoing Mexico Revolution - Ignored by the Media
Mexico, July 11, 2012. The largest protest in human history. USA and UK governments pushed the press not to publish. Google censored videos on youtube and restricted keywords on this event.
The Mexican media has blacking out the protests against their new government, who have been accused of doing everything from buying votes to buying off the media.
If the corporate media won’t spread this story, then let’s spread the story. Share this all over your pages and your friend’s pages and help support the democracy movement in Mexico.
What the fuck?! I want to know things damn it!

Same-Sex Buddhist Nuptials of the Day: Their union may not be legal, but Yu Ya-ting and Huang Mei-yu on Saturday becameTaiwan’s first lesbian couple to be married in a Buddhist ceremony.
Huang said the couple hoped that a wedding blessed by a Buddhist master would encourage more Taiwanese, 80 percent of whom are Buddhist, to support same-sex marriage.
“I remember when I told my parents that we would get married, their first question was, ‘Is this legal?’” Huang said. “I could only say to them that it would soon, but I didn’t know when would be considered soon. So we hope it will become legal.”
I’m blogging about this again because I’m still trying to pay this ridiculous electric fee. I posted it pretty late last time So I’m not sure that how many people saw it but I’m selling my left over otakon stock.
All the information about it can be found here. Please message me if you’re interested.

Can’t buy any but I can help promote this.
