The only thing we can do now is eat.

To honor the passing of C. Martin Croker, who voiced Zorak and Moltar on Space Ghost: Coast to Coast, Adult Swim put every episode of the show (every episode they could, anyway) online, for free, no registration needed. If you aren’t of the age/demographic to have enjoyed this show when it was on the air, set aside a weekend, load up a bowl, and start watching. If you did enjoy this show when it was on the air, set aside a weekend, load up a bowl, and start re-watching. If you don’t have time/interest for the whole series (I don’t blame you), at least treat yourself to the one with Busta Rhymes. I have watched those ten minutes of television more times than I have any other single episode or movie of anything, ever. Natural Gas–it gives you some ideas!

The Depression Series

Guest Post, · Categories: Guest Posts

In 2013, model Karolina Roussakis called for photographers wanting to collaborate on creative projects. Artistic photographer David MacKinnon responded and they immediately found a common interest. Karolina wanted to explore “the emotions and distress [caused by] depression,” particularly as she experienced them. David was beginning a journey to accept and address the depression and anxiety that had plagued his own life. From this seed, and with the help of some friends, grew a short photographic series exploring various aspects of depression that drew from their personal experiences. The series became part of their personal goals to come to grips with their mental illnesses so that they could live more fulfilling and rewarding lives. Read full post

Friday Open Thread

I can’t believe I’m on a three-week-long downward spiral. I hope yesterday’s vertigo/migraine combo (suspected residue from last week’s cold) was rock bottom because any lower and I’m going to have to start digging.

What ultimate self-care do you indulge in when things are especially tough?

Forgive me a bit of self-promotion: The listings for the last five pairs of my bloomers expire October 1. I won’t relist them or make more in the foreseeable future. I’m out of lace and (sadly!) the bloomers don’t sell well enough to justify putting more money into supplies right now. I’d love to get rid of these last five pairs before the end of the month! If there’s a pair that appeals to you, please purchase it at a $10 discount by using coupon code MANKA. Read full post
