END OF THE WORLD WATCH: Quite Simply, Ice Melts

Day After Tomorrow
We have already built in an additional rise in temperature of 0.6 degrees centigrade, which is causing the glaciers to disappear. The melting in the Himalayas has tremendous implications for the 2 to 3 billion people who live downstream from rivers such as the Ganges, Indus and Yangtze that are fed by the glaciers there. These people will have less water to use as a municipal source and for hydropower and irrigation. The scary thing is the impact of the climate changes that we don't know, for example, how it will affect the insects that inhabit and can devastate our forests. - As the World Melts, Wired

KINDLING, by Fayth
I can lie like the CIA
pull the covers over ya head
so sweet, so tight
out goes the light
kill'd dead with words
you're in now stamped earth
with me bobbing my head
as you suffocate to death,
coughing, "how did I get myself in this FUCKED up situation?"

Good thing I work for the opposition.
Taming tradition the mission
ancestral homes denied, all i've got left is the right brain in my head
I-alighting, DNA uniting! Formative years...still tempt with insteads...

I could ride into battle, wild haired and leveling, Republican.
Black, Pagan, Queer, but Republican.
Debt saddle winking at human nature ;)
"The FREE Market makes true sense, we all put in
OUR dollars and cents, even me the Black Chick with Backdue Rent!"

Glad to work for an opposing force, nature pulls and I push forth.
THE RICHER THE WORLD, NOT THE BETTER FOR!

Beyond a starry sky, the next is now high, even further away in our War Days.
Sly, I'd say there's always been killin'.
Mass murdering of man, slave trading, raping,
united nations lying in state, suffering under great civilizations' bloody weight
Building tall temples of RESERVED gold, dealing democracy down roads of death

Sorry, I'm lying to you. Lone dark nights spent fearing it true:
Deaden'd WE!

Look, Look!
Ice caps are melting
The birds are dying
Down from the sky planes now regularly fly,
and the Superman is dead.

Turn-Back-Go-Not-Ahead!
The world is ending, hear me!
THE WORLD IS ENDING.


I work for the opposition, what about you?

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".[2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender, to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia. - Wikipedia

The Memorist That's Me!

Just call me the memoirist.
People often say they remember me.
And I can't forget sh**, and just filled out a new HSAM research request UCI had sent me, so...

Reality for me? Just temporarily misplacing, or actively trying to forget, more things than the rest of humanity, and nonetheless it just comes back screaming to life over and over again like Groundhog Day (the movie remains a small personal comfort).

But. Living with hyperthymesia is fine, useful even. I hunt those oppression would use with it some days, on others I work on sharing a new sys with the public featuring my library of screenshots, and those like mine for my various cases in a new and innovative way. Partly book, partly website, all me. A lot of white people need to read themselves NOW I think, what they said THEN, ya know?

For the last year and half, I've also been working with a therapist who's diagnosed me with hyperthymesia. Which has led to realization after realization and I'…

Faith Cheltenham Bio

Faith Cheltenham

activist/writer/speaker

There are so many different aspects of Faith Cheltenham’s life and career––writer, community organizer, advocate, activist, lecturer, poet, social media expert, digital strategist––that she is currently working to develop a single unifying “theory of Faith.” (It might be easier if you keep in mind Faith lives with hyperthymesia, or the inability to forget her own memories.) Then you too might be able to “keep thefayth” and learn to live in a future where gender and sexuality quite easily bend and every single Black life matters. 

Faith got her start in LGBT advocacy as a Human Rights Campaign intern on the Gore 2000 campaign, and in 2002, she co-founded UCLA’s BlaQue for LGBT/SGL students of African descent. In 2006, she appeared in the Emmy winning reality series on race in America, “Black. White.” produced by Ice Cube. 

After spending time working in corporate America doing digital strategy for Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York and co-creating …
