First Something amazing and Sweet – And Then What You Can Do For the Reality of Hurricane Victims

Beloveds,

I’m hoping that this post finds you alive and well – Particularly those of you that have been in the eye of the storm.

The Electric Snow Show was conceived in an East Coast storm.

Our electric snow show was not comparable to Hurricane Sandy – we had the sort of gothic and awesome combination of lightning and snow at the same time that could have inspired all sorts of tragedy, but it came and went in what was compared to Sandy, a divine instant.

We cannot neglect to include things for the victims and the heroes and all of those in between the Hurricane at what has now become theThe Electric Snow Show Collection of blogs. Over at http://www.AnimalCircusBezerkus.com, we have a link to an excellent post that includes many ways to help the animals of the storm…And now, here is more information on how to help all of the creatures – even those with two legs – that have been affected.

Please share this post with as many people as you can, in the hopes of helping even one individual make it a little more comfortably through these rough moments. You may save lives.

Be Warm, Be Dry, Be Well – I Love You,

Bunny Cord and The Electric Snow Show Collection

Now, Here We Go:

~ Occupy Sandy / OccupySMS.org ~

A coordinated relief effort to help distribute resources and volunteers to help neighborhoods and people affected by Hurricane Sandy.

The genius name and idea – in my humble opinion, probably the most productive one to come out of the OCCUPY efforts in New York is on twitter at http://www.Twitter.com/OccupySandy. (@OccupySandy)

Make sure to hashtag appropriately, such as #OccupySandy

http://www.facebook.com/OccupySandy

They have a wedding registry at Amazon, like many non-profits these days, where the spoils go to Hurricane Sandy donations – So instead of gifting Bob and Judy with a punch bowl – You can give or chip in to donate, say –  a cb radio to the relief efforts.

The registry can be found at http://www.amazon.com/registry/wedding/32TAA123PJR42

     the OccupySandy Storm Effort overview can be found at http://www.Interoccupy.net/HurricaneSandy

To request aid, text SANDY to 69866

To offer aid, text MUTUALAID to 69866 General inquiries : occupysandy@interoccupy.net

Volunteers: ~OccupySMS.org~

~ The CBS Local Guide for Various Relief Efforts ~ is at http://newyork.cbslocal.com/guide/where-to-donate-or-volunteer-to-sandy-relief-effort/

This list includes the general (Feeding America, the local – New York, New Jersey and Connecticut Chapters of The Red Cross and The Salvation Army, etc…special New York City and New Jersey Sections and Thank Heavens, a little Pet section) These listings are comprised largely of the Big Go-To-Guys in times of crisis and you may have already have thought of them. Then again, the poo has hit the fan – they are worth mentioning and passing around again and again.

CBS also has a ~Disaster Relief Information and Resources Guide~ at : http://newyork.cbslocal.com/top-lists/disaster-relief-information-resources/

~Speaking of The Big Ones: The Red Cross donations:

Incidentally, have you seen the stipulations they have about using their logo? I have. I am slightly frightened! Brand Quality is being enforced, and rightfully so – But they sure do make it hard to include a button here – So, no button for you – Be a big kid and click on the links, yourself.

If you are interested in volunteering for the Red Cross, please be aware that you should be Over 16, Available to lift and carry 50 pounds, and “comfortable working with people in stressful situations,” Hello, New Yorkers with their backs intact! Surely, they must have positions for people that are not able to lift and haul a medium-sized dog – Let’s hope.

~Search for Open Red Cross Shelters by texting SHELTER and a ZIP CODE to 43362 (4FEMA) Ex. Shelter01234 (standard rates apply)~

Additionally, there is a wordpress site http://www.AnimalCircusBezerkus.com and a Tumblr http://AnimalCircusBeserkus.com - Yes, they are spelled differently.

Stay Safe, You are Loved.

Regarding the Video: “Inspired, in equal measures, by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books, “Morris Lessmore” is a story of people who devote their lives to books and books who return the favor. The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore is a poignant, humorous allegory about the curative powers of story. Using a variety of techniques (miniatures, computer animation, 2D animation) award winning author/ illustrator William Joyce and Co-director Brandon Oldenburg present a hybrid style of animation that harkens back to silent films and M-G-M Technicolor musicals. “Morris Lessmore” is old fashioned and cutting edge at the same time.”

I love it when my pastries get totally delusional on me. Watch this toast’s teeny furry friend assist him in his plot to eliminate the unenlightened reign of the complacent Pistachio Nut Shelling public. (Which may be us) I’m not fully certain…but I have the odd feeling that the people reading this blog may be on the side of The Toast.

My Blog Tried To Eat Me.

I found this little glitterbug of a post cowering in the draft bin, so I marked it up here and there -

~

Dear Almost-Valentine,*

*(Yes, this is from the deadly point in time that I was convinced that you had to WRITE LONG THINGS to have a blog.)

 I’ve been saving up updates for you for a good reason….I’m recovering from The Bronchitis That’s Raged All Over NYC and LA and Miami and Underneath Toadstools and In-Between-Hidey-Holes-Everywhere-All-Winter-Flu*.

Guess what!

I lived. I know. I know. Better luck next time, All.

 Have you been to http://Sevenly.org ? They “sell” (pass your dimes along to someplace truly better and give you something in the meantime – kind of like Money Heaven) fantastic-fitting shirts for men, women and children for well, men, women and children who will benefit from a different cause every week…

Despicable You – You’ve Fallen in Love with a New Cause, Who Knew?

     One of my favorite things, particularly at a time when I can’t do much else, is to indulge in what I call…”Charity Therapy.” or better yet, “Chairity.” Chairity can be done from (a waiting room) chair instead of sifting through the sniffle-laden Ladies Home Journals and Highlights Magazines in your adult pediatrician’s office while you wait for a diagnosis of  some new flu that you’re quite certain must have been transferred to you by an otherwise unseen netherworld plague doctor and/or perhaaaaps  a blister pack of Tamiflu and horehound throat drops.* You can really start doing your Chairity Charity in any chair at all.

 (No need to wait for the plague)

A nifty place to start is at Sevenly.Org. The site is a veritable variety-pack of charities – curated life-changers and of  life-savers to the recipients of your “modest” donations (these donations are so modest that the word, cleavage  -*Hello, Google rank – I said, “cleavage”…wait, no, I said, “Celebrity Cleavage!” Read me!*- makes them gasp and blush)

Your newfound ability to lay moral superiority over the causeless t-shirt wearers  aside, if you boast a Sevenly shirt, you’ll actually WEAR the shirt for a change (pun intended) outside of the house and not just on laundry day (i.e. yodeling otherwise naked in the basement) You’ll realize that you’ve done a little something to help someone or someplace every time that you gaze upon your combed cotton chest. People will ask you about your wonderful shirt. You will tell them. And they will tell someone else. And you won’t just be JackAss-in-a-T-Shirt-Yodeling-in-their-Basement-on-Laundry-Day. You will be a person who helps change the world. Good, yes?

YES.

The causes from which you can choose a tee shirt include : War-Torn Africa, Sex-Slavery, and Poverty

The in-roads to help these causes may be new to you…The affiliated charities are often offbeat and under-publicized.

MY FAVORITE CAUSE THUS-FAR:

VoiceProject.Org.

“Restore war-abducted children,” (i.e. GET THE KIDS SOMEPLACE SAFE) by sending mentally and physically tortured young people forced to fight against their will (terrified into thinking that they cannot come home) messages FROM home via giant FM speakers in a partnership with, “AMPLIFY PEACE” and “The Voice Project.” For more information, watch the video at the end of this blog, enjoy the gorgeous Folk song that accompanies it, and in under a minute, you’ll probably be fiending to get your mittens on a Sevenly.org shirt – or anything that will help you carry the melodious message of The Voice Project. By enabling the war-hostage children to hear speaker-boomed and radio-streamed messages and songs sung to them in their native tongue of Acholi by their own families and ex-abductees,  the voice project finds one of the ONLY ways that these child-warriors can be reached With messages of hope. The idea that they CAN “come home,” without being re-imprisoned or killed is often a revelation that breaks the cycle of brainwashing and terror that has resulted in war for 25 years.

                                                                                                                                                       AMPLIFY PEACE from The Voice Project on Vimeo.

The Voice Project * Amplify Peace

 The Voice Project is an amazing site, in itself*, BUT if you’d like to broadcast their message and have something besides the feel-good-bumps-all-over, scoring a $7 to $22 t-shirt or two via Sevenly.Org is one of the best ways.

Sevenly’s logo is,simply “One Tee. One Week. One Cause.” Even the packaging is cooler than all-get-out, as the pouch that your shirt arrives in proclaims in inspiring, grass-green font : “Look At You, Changing the World and Stuff.” Please be sure to read the footnote for info on Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros’ Alex and Chris’ song, “Home,” with “The Gulu Widows.”

Love and Best, You LoveBugs, And Happy-2012,

Elisabella

(The Bunny)

*Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros’ Alex and Chris were some of the  first and most resounding voices involved with The Voice Project. is story was told – The “Up From Below” Documentary release party and money raised were combined to benefit Ugandan Women. (VoiceProject.Org) Chris and Alex did a remix of, “Home,” with The Gulu Choir / The Gulu Widows’ voices. It is available via The Hope Album on Itunes.

** To be fair, if you came here for celebrity-clevage, I have to give it to you:

(sigh)

It’s after the jump:

(more…)

Please, Children, Scooch Forward. Don’t Make me tell you again about the schooching.

It’s Vincent van Gogh’s birthday! To celebrate the 35th anniversary of Sesamstraat, the Dutch version of Sesame Street, Sesame Workshop partnered with the Amsterdam-based Vincent van Gogh Museum, where Bedroom in Arles hangs, to recreate a version of the famous painting featuring Elmo, Bert, Ernie and the beloved Sesamstraat MuppetsTM  Ienie Mienie, Tommie, Purk and Pino. The special painting, which was unveiled by Sesamstraat actor Frank Groothof, was on display at the museum in December 2011.
