(I work in a fairly large telemarketing office raising money for various charities (eg. cancer council, police citizen’s youth club, etc.) by selling raffle tickets.)

Me: “Good morning, my name is [My Name] and I’m calling on behalf of the Heart Research Institute of Australia. How you doing today, sir?”

Man: “Sorry, don’t have one of them.” *click*

Cultiples #1 is now available!

Cover behind cut )LB has spent years discussing the good, neutral, and challenging sides of multiplicity.  Now they take on the cult leaders within their demographic, starting with Tristan Grey (legally known as Desiree Hamm).  Tristan, LB's penpal of two and a half years, is in jail for kidnapping, sexually assaulting, and branding two teenage girls, who he roped into an online roleplaying cult.  Cultiples #1 dives into his story and tactics.

The paper book is $5. The listing is up HERE.  People coming to my signing on 3/25/2017 will get it first; I can’t ship them out until Monday.

The ebook is pay what you want, as promised.  Please spread to whoever you think would be well-served, especially fellow plurals.  I’m also considering making an Issue #0 just for my posts about tactics, without using any leader in particular, but meh, maybe not.

Earth Hour is a thing that is happening tomorrow – or today, by the time you get this. It's a light fast: no* illumination for one hour. It's a world-wide observance to demonstrate opposition to climate change and light polution.

It happens tomorrow (Saturday, March 25) from 8:30pm to 9:30pm in your local timezone. All you have to do is turn out your lights for that hour.

Please join the millions of people around the world doing this, if you can swing it.

Locals: the Cambridge Community Development Department is asking folks to participate, and will be giving out hot chocolate at the main library branch during Earth Hour to celebrate.

* There seems to be an understanding that candles, phosphorescence, and fireworks are okay? So this is Reform Earth Hour? Presumably Conservative Earth Hour is where you can have a candle or glow-stick, but only if it was lit before Earth Hour started, and an Orthodox Earth Hour where you will damn well sit there in the dark.

Oh, and for those who don't get the title of this post, the string to search is "how many Jewish mothers does it take to change a lightbulb?"

... my dad just called me for the express purpose of reading aloud to me a long passage of Eugene Debs praising the Bolsheviks and condemning both of the period American parties as capitalist sellouts. fml
