Apparently the usual format for these guys is to go around pranking people, but this time they instead go around giving things to homeless people. It's not much really. I mean it's just a shirt and a banana in most cases but still. These are people reaching out with what they have, and that is good.

No being gay myself but facing some minor gender issues (much later found to be due to social anxiety and isolation) in my teen years and having a wonderful set of grandparents (who raised me as a son) who understood and accepted me at the time, made me appreciate this article even more.  A grandfather confronts his homophobic daughter after she disowns and kicks her son out of the house because he told her he was gay.

Batmanning?  I was stopped paying attention way back during the planking vogue....

This is still work to do, but the cure for the ''Disney Channel Curse'' is underway:
''In an effort to ward off future generations of trainwrecks, Disney and Nickelodeon have both instituted orientation programs designed to prepare young performers for the vicissitudes of fame. Disney launched its program, Talent 101, only recently in 2007, shortly after a nude photo of High School Musical actress Vanessa Hudgens hit the internet. Modeled in part on the NBA’s Rookie Transition Program, the course requires incoming talent, as well as their parents and siblings, to listen to guidance from various department heads.

“The decision to begin an orientation program, Talent 101, coincided with the emergence of social media and was in response to an increase in requests from young actors and their parents to help them navigate the experience of suddenly being in the global public sphere,” Disney rep Patti McTeague told The Huffington Post.

Nickelodeon, whose representatives declined to comment for this article, has for the past decade required its stars to undergo a similar course to learn the ropes, on and off set. A 2007 Entertainment Weekly article characterizes that program as a “boot camp” that teaches kids to be media-savvy, and also imparts technical knowledge (what exactly is a key grip, anyway?) and professional expectations (perhaps Lohan never learned the meaning of “call time”).``

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''
Extract of the Dreamflesh article ''Path of The Sacred Clown''

The world needs more like her.

I've added that to my youtube favorites to watch an rewatch on those days where I need hope and faith that there are good things in the world worth holding on for.

man builds mobility vehicles for children under age four -
using parts bought at Toys R us,
the local hardware store,
and then giving parents a 'do it yourself' instruction manual.

no thousands of dollars.
no jillions of doctors.

yeah that's been in my favorites for a while. The bit about opening his house into a crash pad for makers from all over to come and live while they spent their time doing that project. That's the embodiment of what I strive to be. Find a need in the world assemble a crew, no matter where they are, and then shatter the barriers.
