leocigale’s entry in the contest

 

Hey, everyone, just a quick update on the  still-ongoing We Hunted the Mammoth banner contest (the details of which are here).

First, I want to thank all those who’ve contributed so far. Some great stuff!

Second, I want to announce that due to the generosity of some Man Boobz — soon to be We Hunted the Mammoth — readers, the contest now has a cash prize of $100.

Thanks very much for those who’ve donated, and if you want to add more to the prize, use the regular Man Boobz donation button, but include a note saying you want the money earmarked for the prize. (Also include a little codeword or phrase; I want to be transparent with this, so I will list the donations later according to these code phrases so you know your money went to the prize.)

Also, a question: I’m wondering what you folks think should happen if I want to use more than one of the designs? Split the prize money?

The contest will run through Sunday. So submit if you haven’t already!

Here are some of the submissions so far. Anyone is free to use the artwork in a banner design of their own (and if it wins you’ll split the prize with the artist).

Open Thread for Personal Stuff: April 2014 Edition

It's either a hug, or attempted murder. With cats, it's hard to tell.

An open thread for personal stuff, continuing from here.

Under the Weather

How I feel at the moment, pretty much.

Ugh. Not feeling too well, so no post today. (Maybe a short one, later.)

Off topic: Yakety Rave

I’m too migrainey to brain properly today, so instead I give you some raver dudes dancing (?) to Yakety Sax. And, no, they weren’t really dancing to Yakety Sax, but I do kind of love the idea of vast fields full of people raving out to old novelty songs.

Giant Blinking Thanks! (Pledge Drive is Over)

kitty_lover_thank_you_animated_gif_595x335_by_juleesan-d5b1e4h

I just wanted to offer a giant, ridiculous, blinking, kitty-filled THANK YOU to everyone who donated in the Man Boobz Pledge Drive this week, whether your donation was big or small. If you didn’t donate, but meant to, here’s another chance — and you can always donate through the button in the sidebar.

I truly appreciate your support; it makes a tremendous difference to me, both financially and psychically, and helps me to keep this blog going. And of course many of you support this blog in many other ways — from contributing to the comments section to emailing me tips on misogyny you’ve spotted in the wild — and I appreciate this dearly as well. You rock. Thanks again!

Here are some more kitties, because it’s Friday night and what the hell. And some dogs. Dogs are ok, too, I guess.

As requested, an open thread. I’ll try to get these up more often in the future. This one will be overseen by Morrissey with a cat on his head.

Cat discovers snow; David takes a few days off

So, there’s a whole bunch of MRA stuff I should be writing about now, and some Roosh drama, but, you know, my heart just isn’t in it at the moment. So I’m going to take a few more days off to clear my head. In the meantime, I would suggest keeping up with the latest MRA and PUA shenanigans by checking out the AgainstMensRights and TheBluePill subreddits, respectively.

Also, I thought you all might appreciate this video of a cat discovering snow for the first time.

And Happy New Year! Or did I already wish you guys that?

Happy New Year! Also, a cat

Happy New Year!

My first New Year’s resolution is to finish up my slightly belated Big Year End Review of Manosphere Greatness in 2013. But in the meantime, enjoy this cat, and this open thread.
