Cool Stuff and Things

This page is full of links to non-profit organizations, webcomics, independent artists, and many other things in no specific order. So while naming the page specifically would result in a long drawn out name that would fill a nice, thick book, I simply call it…

The Childrin of Childrin R Skary are a lot of misfit kiddos with questionable hobbies. They frequently find themselves the source of mayhem and destruction for which they’ve earned a dismal reputation. They mean well most of the time but for obvious reasons have difficulty securing friendships or babysitters. Not to worry - they keep themselves entertained. (“Not to worry,” in this case, means “RUN FOR YOUR LIVES.”)

Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one hour to take a stand against climate change. Only a year later and Earth Hour had become a global sustainability movement with more than 50 million people across 35 countries participating. Global landmarks such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, CN Tower in Toronto, Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and Rome’s Colosseum, all stood in darkness, as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour

A Softer World is a comic that was created by Emily Horne and Joey Comeau so that people would recognize them as important artistic geniuses. Sometimes the “comic” is sad or harsh. It should be noted that this is in the tradition of George Simenon’s ‘romans durs’ (or ‘hard novels’) and not in the lesser traditions of comics like Peanuts or anything else not French. Comeau is a French name. (Pronounced kuh-moe, by the way. Joey is very important, please say his name correctly. Emily is also very important but her name is easier to pronounce.)

Cat Rackham lives in the wilderness but he isn’t very good at it. Is he too self-involved to listen to his natural instincts? Did he go into the wild to escape some personal demons? Did he used to be a human being? We will never know the answers to these questions.
