The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water.

Last dream you remember: It was a horrible dream where it was like, a zombie apocalypse but it was like the Walking Dead — except with some characters from the walking dead and some not, and apparently zombies were being cured and people were like fuck that, and everyone from the group was like r u srs this is a terrible idea putting people all in one place full of sort of zombies. Big surprise, everything went to shit and Clementine and Andrea(?) and Lee rode through a mall in a convertible while Michonne cut off zombie heads with a katana I have no idea, it was really involved.
Can you juggle:Sooooooort of?
Art/sports/both: I like the arts — I like drawing and acting (both of which I’ve been good enough to do for money) and singing and dancing (both of which I’m bad at enough that I’m sure people would pay me to stop). I used to be really good at sports but then I grew boobs and everything hurt, and like puberty and body image issues took care of that organized sports bug young Becca had.
Do you like writing: Yep! People used to tell me I was good at it creatively, but man I am so much better at academic writing. I got that shit on lock down.
Do you like dancing: Fuck yes I do
Do you like singing: I go to Karaoke enough on Wednesday nights that the guy who runs it generally drives me home. I am what they call, a regular
Dream vacation: Being surrounded by all the people I enjoy, having no drama, everyone having the money to party and drink (or not drink). For like, a week.
Dream guy/girl: looks as though they survived a zombie apocalypse and won. Also, Good beards for the beard bonus point round and ladies that are taller than me.
Dream wedding: Drag wedding, everyone comes in full drag. Everyone.
Dream pet: I REALLY WANT A PIG. But I would settle for a Great Dane
Dream job: Drawin’ comics. Or like, workin’ in a comic shop, I have no idea. (or y’know, being a cultural studies professor but oh my god thinking about going back to school for a phd barf)
Favorite song:I want No Children by the Mountain Goats to be the first dance song in my fictional wedding. Also Better son/daughter by Rilo Kiley feels like someone reading my diary
Favorite album: Trans-continental Hustle .
Last song you heard on the radio:Oh man, I have no idea — like, it was satellite radio at a bridal shower so when I tuned in it was because songs I liked were playing? So Should I Stay or Should I go came on and I grooved, ain’t no lie
Least favorite song: Fucking Crazy Frog. Or Cotton Eyed Joe.
Least favorite album: Fucking Kids pop
Least favorite artist:Pitbull
Hair color:Any, but I will probably check you out automatically if it is an unnatural color.
Eye color: I really like pale blue eyes and really dark brown eyes. But y’know, pretty much anything. I knew this girl in high school who had like, ice blue eyes with bright orange flecks in them. Prettiest eyes I ever saw.
Humorous/serious: Dad Jokes
Biggest turn-off: Being unwilling to examine their own privileges and try to act better accordingly
Biggest turn-on: Throw down in the sack
Tagging: IN THE TAGS
I apologize as this comes off as disrespectful to Michael Brown or Trayvon Martin. Or their families. Or YOU, the reader. I’m not about that. That’s not why I drew this.
I am just really freaked out that 40% of Americans (and 47% of White Americans) do not think that the killings and violence in Ferguson ‘raise any racial issues.’ Fellow White Persons, this is our chance to learn. This is our chance to change.
When Trayvon Martin was murdered because Full Grown Men in America are frightened to violence by the presence black children, the dialogue turned very quickly into a conversation about gun control.
And gun control is an issue that deserves our attention.
But it won’t change the massive poverty in Black America. The arrest rate. The education statistics. The institutional, systemic, casual, or passive racism that plagues our country.
And it wouldn’t have saved Michael Brown.
Anyway. I’m sorry if this comes off as disrespectful or insincere or preachy. I’m sorry if my execution (or personality) gets in the way of what I’m trying to say. I am an imperfect artist, an imperfect person, and I am, undoubtedly, blinded to a million things by my own glaring whiteness. So this might be… Lord, this might be awful. I’m so sorry if it’s awful. Really.
But. I just keep thinking… Look, my wife is pregnant with our first child. A boy. We’re nervous, we’re excited, we’re SO ANXIOUS because what the hell do you do with babies? WE don’t know. But if we were a black family… in this country… we would be so terrified. Because we live in a nation that murders the children of black parents, puts it on the news WITH RIOTS AND TEAR GAS as decoration, and still half of us don’t even see it as a problem. Can you imagine that? Can you imagine bringing a child into that reality, to face the odds we lay out for black kids?
That would break me. I’ve never known anything like that. No one should ever know anything like that.
So let’s talk to our friends about race. Lets talk to our families. And when actual victims of racism try to tell us what’s going on in, say, a peaceful community protest as they are being gassed and shot at by cops WE SHOULD LISTEN TO AND BELIEVE THEM. Let’s talk to each other about this until we are all on the same page.
And then let’s turn the damn page.
So far so good, Tuesday night in Ferguson.
these motherfuckers are shooting people for throwing water bottles
this is the country I live in
Okay guys, commissions are going to be open tomorrow, I will make a post with pricing and stuff! THIS SHOULD BE FUN, I MISS DRAWING OTHER PEOPLE’S CHARACTERS!!
CNN’s Jake Tapper Telling the Truth about Ferguson
Jake Tapper exposing the truth! He earned his stripes today.
this is crazy!!!
Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.
We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.
No justice, no peace.
The New Jim Crow
1. Ferguson, Missouri has a population of approximately 21,000 people — roughly 75% of those residents are Black
2. The Ferguson police department has around 530 cops —less than 5 of them are Black
3. Ferguson had *zero* homicides for all of 2014 —until Michael Brown was murdered by Darrin Wilson
4. Things you should know: Five Myths About Black-on-Black Crime
5. Michael Brown was 18yrs old and was about to begin college. Brown had no criminal record, and despite the Ferguson PD’s smear campaign, Mike Brown PAID FOR the cigars —those facts are all important and should be known, but even if Brown was a high school dropout with prior arrests who stole the cigars, 1) it wouldn’t have made his life any less valuable, 2) we have a court system and those are not capital offenses and 3) it doesn’t change the fact that the cop who killed him, Darren Wilson, had no idea about Brown’s personal history when he executed Brown. Wilson saw only a Black teen deemed either “too uppity” or “suspicious” because of his skin color
6. Five examples: The Militarization of the police
7. It’s deeply Institutional: Police view Black Children As Less Innocent
8. So please - don’t get it twisted
THERE ARE SHIPS MEANT FOR FLUFFY NIGHTS IN FRONT OF THE TV WITH POPCORNS AND CUTE KISSES AND CUDDLES AND THEN THERE ARE SHIPS MEANT FOR HARDCORE ANGRY SEX
so be careful when youre planning your next cruise
10 Photos from Ferguson that won’t make it to the mainstream media.
A community in unity.These photos are via Twitter from a Journalist named Ryan Schuessler (@RyanSchuessler1) who unlike some journalists/reporters, chooses to focus on the activities truly going on right now. He’s not focusing on how much of a “hell-hole” some of them are reporting it to supposedly be. But a community of people who are just seeking Justice For Michael Brown. If you can look at these photos and still buy into the mainsteam media’s game, or feel sorry for the police here in the slightest bit - you’re not paying attention.
The anger and actions of the people in Ferguson are justified. They’re citizens who are outraged by the corruption of the justice system and by the fact these police forces are allowed to gas them and shoot into crowds of innocent civilians, whenever they’re rallying in a peaceful protest that the media refuses to expose. They’ll try to turn it around on these people as often as possible.
For those of us who are, and have been paying attention to what’s going on - to the people of Ferguson, hat’s off to you for standing up. Know there are people who know the truth and aren’t listening to what news sources like CNN, FoxNews and NBC are distorting the information into.
DO NOT FALL INTO THE ILLUSIONS AND DISTORTIONS OF THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA ABOUT THE EVENTS IN FERGUSON. DO NOT FALL PREY TO THEIR GAME.
THESE PEOPLE ARE STANDING AGAINST A CORRUPT POLICE FORCE THAT GOT CAUGHT UP IN THEIR OWN LIES. DO NOT JUST FALL INTO THE STORIES OF TEAR GAS, RUBBER BULLETS, RIOTS, and LOOTERS. THERE ARE EVENTS GOING ON FROM PEACEFUL PROTESTERS WHO ARE STANDING FOR JUSTICE.

So after realizing I have only 80 dollars in total to my name, a negative in my bank account, and no job in the immediate future despite resume slinging — I have come to the conclusion that my ass needs to open commissions again so I can pay rent and maybe buy food and pay bills (wow, no aiming high, but maybe make enough to help pay my rent? WHO KNOWS HAHA MY LIFE).
So srs questions about commission junk — would my followers be interested? What sort of price would you be willing to jump on? Like, if I did busts for such and such price, waist ups for another, and like, idk stuff? The goal here is to do a bunch (hopefully?) so I don’t want to get super bogged down with complicated commissions with crazy junk like backgrounds. THOUGH… I SUPPOSE… I WOULD MAKE MONEY DOING PORN? Maybe?
