I am a girl who does things. Here there be geekery, writing, feminism, photography, geeky feminism and sometimes ponies. Don't worry, I won't tell anyone that you're only here for the ponies.
Like what you saw or read here? Interested in getting rid of some of that pesky extra money you've got just sitting under your mattress? Well, consider throwing a few bucks in my tip jar!
At the end of July, the lovely Kristin Ross is going to be throwing a major shindig (possibly even a hootenanny) for the Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council. And if you’d like, we have a way for YOU to help.
We’re currently seeking donations for a raffle. All proceeds to benefit the GPLC. And while we’ve got some kick-ass stuff already, the more we get, the more we raise, the more people learn to read.
We’re looking for pretty much anything. Do you own/work for a small business that could chip something in? Know somebody who knows somebody who knows somebody? Have a website that would contribute some free ad space? Have a random monkey you’re not using? People LOVE monkeys, you know.
Even if you can’t donate, feel free to pass this info along to anyone you know who might be able to. Word of mouth, people!
If you’ve got a potential donation idea, e-mail me at newageamazon at gmail dot com and lemme know.
We’re doing this because WORDS KICK ASS.
Yeah, that’s right. I’ve got a bunch of promo CD’s and swag kicking around my apartment that I just don’t have the space for. So, I’m offering people in Pittsburgh the chance to win some of this.
But see, I’m kind of anti-social and lonely. So I figured, hey, I can make people TALK to me if I do this. So here’s how the contest is going to work.
Step 1: Be sure you are following my Twitter (newageamazon) on Saturday, May 15th.
Step 2: Starting at around 1 PM, I give you the name of a Pittsburgh neighborhood, a hint about where I am, and a password or quote you will have to give me when you find me.
Step 3: Find me, give me the quote and I give you your prize package:
As you can see, it contains music, stickers and posters from Free Energy, Codeine Velvet Club AND Minus the Bear.
I have 4 of these prize packs to give out, buuuuut I also have some extra stickers and maaaaaybe a little bit more music to get rid of.
That happens THIS SATURDAY. May 15th. So, like I said, be sure to watch my Twitter that day for info on how you can win.
And don’t worry, you can unfollow me, like, right after that. But if you’d like to stick around, that’s cool too.
