Right Now there are 2 Worthy causes that come to mid her ein our own podcasting community that is the The Trust for Sonic Boom / The Boom Effect, and the Legal Defense Fund to Help SVAllie with her legal costs from her custody battle to keep the EP (Elf Princess) with her. Links provided below.
But there are a lot of causes out there that we don’t see, children that need a transplant families effected by disaster, and nations effected by even larger disasters. Take a moment today and pray or send positive thoughts / energy (whatever your “thing” is) and if you got a spare dime chip it in to help a cause, or better yet donate some time to help a cause along or even a shoulder or an ear to someone that is effected by a tragedy. Hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org with the Subject Tuesday Cause if you have a cause you want / need me to pimp. There are plenty of people out there that need a hand, not just a hand out. See who you can help today.
Because my HTML Fu is not all that and I think because WordPress.com doesn’t play nice with the ChipIn Widget I’ll provide links to the pages for the EP Legal Defense fund and the SB Trust and the link for the BoomEffect Auction site. Anyone that wants to help me become better at HMTL – or Interviewing – or anything in general drop me a line we’ll talk…well type…
Help out if you can if not with a few $$$ with some encouragement, prayer, or time.
I Declare Tomorrow Friday, 1-22-2010 the 1st annual Hug a Special Child day. So far this year I’ve seen too much negative things come across my plate dealing with kids – losing Parents, nasty custody battles, abuse, bullying, I’m done listening to bad things happening to kids for now. Friday 1-22-2010 be sure to hug the children in your life and tell them how much they mean to you. Life’s way to damned short and we don’t do this nearly as often as we should. Hell maybe I’ll just start making the second to last Friday of the month Child Appreciation day.
More friends in dire straits that can use support both moral and fiscal. In short a friend is in a legal battle to keep her child that is beginning to turn ugly and get costly. If you can spare a moment of prayer or a little money please check out the link above that can explain the situation better than I can.
Hey playing with fireworks next to a gas line can cause issues who knew?
But seriously I’ve had some Hard Drive issues mine is a paperweight so Until I can get some of the things I was planning on reviewing downloaded on my old clunker of a laptop and or a replacement drive and my current laptop back up and limping (I’m not that aarogant to think that any of my computers can “run with all the crap I put them through) this spot may be a little bare…. I have to find my notes for my 8 Qs, and get the next one posted up – I should be able to get this done today or tomorrow depending on work and fam – Hey 2 teens a toddler and a wife need a LOT of attention… so do the cat and the dog and they just take it… Cesar Milan take me away….
I’m not getting lazy… I already am lazy… er I mean I’ll get more content up here as soon as I possibly can – in the meantime remember to chip in for SB’s trust http://is.gd/6K4M4 ,and support the Boom Effect Auction http://www.theboomeffect.org/ (There is some seriously freaking cool stuff over there)
You guys are awesome, keep the love alive.
I’m reminded of the words of a very wise man that once said to me, “Look freak do you NOT understand the meaning of the words RESTRAINING ORDER? Get the hell away from me.” Dad was always such a kidder, if anyone spots him tell him I said Hi.
We take a break from our normally smart assed position on the world in general to bring you a moment of seriousness.
This weeks Random Pimpage is going to take a different tack than I had originally planned instead of a review of a podcaster’s work I’ve decided to make an observation of the podioshphere that makes me proud to be among you all.
I’d like to pimp the community for a moment if I may. Last week Tee Morris had a family tragedy occur and the community stepped up and kicked ass to Help out Tee and Sonic Boom his young daughter after the sudden passing of Tee’s Wife Natalie. Philippa Ballentine and others sprang into action to help set up trusts for Sonic Boom’s future. At the time of this posting the Chip In Amount is $17,237.13. That is amazing. There is a Online Auction set for Feb 27th in an effort to raise more funds. Keep that date in Mind and visit http://www.theboomeffect.org/ often for updates and Lots to be auctioned.
The outpouring I’ve seen for Tee and SB during this tragedy has really moved me to see that many people give that huge an outpouring of love to a man like Tee Morris. Podcasters, and listeners alike started posting and chipping in to try to raise awareness of Tee’s situation.
I really wish the rest of the world could take a cue form the podcast community and have that much love and compassion for each other when we each reach out time of need. Tee and SB will likely need prayers warm thoughts, and shoulders to lean /cry on and ears and hearts to listen to help them through this. I don’t need to ask that you keep them in your prayers and thoughts but I’m going to say it anyway. Please keep Tee and SB in your prayers and thoughts as they try to heal from this loss.
And Tee if you ever need anything, I may be a faceless stranger (well not that faceless I post my actual pic everywhere I post) let me know and I’ll do what I can for ya Captain.
Thank you all for restoring a little of this cynics faith in his fellow mankind (and womankind for those that demand gender equality in generalized statements.)
I originally came across this guy calling himself Odin1Eye on twitter because of several of the podcasters I follow. Humorous half exchanges and retweets flooded my feed so I figured I had to follow him on twitter and havent’ regretted it since. Not only is a fun guy to chat with over teh webz (as opposed to a fungi – That would be someone that’s irritating but grows on you.. kinda like me….) but he’s a generally great guy in general. He is a very wise and insightful man – helps that he sacrificed an eye for that wisdom – (those that don’t get the reference http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Odin learn some Norse Mythology there’s more than Thor and his hammer)
His Blog which often features very well thought out reviews – View from Valhalla – http://odin1eye.wordpress.com/
You can find him on Twitter – http://twitter.com/odin1eye
