My Mom thinks I’m cool

#MyMomThinksI’mCool

Pages from my ‘Levels of Complexity’ project, in which I wanted to explore ways in which I could communicate biology and science-based information in a more accessible illustrative style. I hoped to inspire some amount of awe at just how much is going on ‘beneath the surface,’ such as cells, tissues, organs, processes, etc within our bodies and our environment.

This is beautiful, except it’s all thin, traditionally attractive white people.

the fact that people are like “Coca Cola supports racial equality, I’m not going to be drinking Coca Cola anymore” and “Google supports gay rights I’m not going to use them anymore” like what next “the Earth provides Oxygen to ethnic minorities I’m going to stop breathing in protest”

Hopefully

MI CATS 3 Found Guilty by Jury

from MI CATS
The trial of peaceful activists from Michigan Coalition Against Tar Sands (MI CATS)…

View Post

I have been mourning the snatching of my friends by the state since yesterday. We had been feeling so hopeful, that justice might preside, that the underdogs might defeat the state in one small way. Now our friends are in jail. We went to the Ingham County Jail today and formed a “Biocentric, Bouncing Banner Choir”. We sang improvised bio-centric songs such as:"For Lisa Barb and Vicci, we shall not be movedFor Lisa Barb and Vicci, we shall not be movedlike a tree that’s growing by the water, we shall not be we shall not be moved.Till the end of harsh extraction, we shall not be movedTill the end of harsh extraction, we shall not be movedlike a tree that’s growing by the water, we shall not be we shall not be moved.Till all the prisons crumble,Till all the prisons crumble, we shall not be movedwe shall not, we shall not be movedlike a tree that’s growing by the water, we shall not we shall not be moved.”It had many other verses, proposed organically on the spot.
We also sang this bio-centric, anti-colonial version of “This land is your land” 

This Land
This song is adapted from Woodie Guthrie’s version

This land is stolen from first nation folks
And we claim it’s ours, our private property
Industry exploits it for capitalism
This land belongs to mother earth

This land is earth’s land, this land is earth’s land
And they can’t have it to mine their tar sands
And they can’t take it to build their pipelines
This land was made for animals.

As I was walking that ribbon of highway,
I saw above me that endless skyway
I saw below me that golden valley
This land was made for our children

I’ve roamed and rambled and followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts:
And all around me a voice was sounding:
This land belongs to mother earth


In the shadow of Wall Street I saw my people.
By the welfare office I saw my people:
As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking:
Is this land made for you and me?

This land is earth’s land, this land is earth’s land
And they can’t have it to mine their tar sands
And they can’t take it to build their pipelines
This land belongs to mother earth

(I wrote the first verse, which incidentally also the last verse, and got rid of the “this land was made for you and me” anthropocentric b.s. the rest of the verses were gifted to me by Vicci Hamlin).<3
