Hot Topic is known amongst artist groups as one of the worst offenders of art theft in U.S. retailers. I know artists are important to What Pumpkin, and I’d imagine multiple cases of art theft would be a very big deal. The most well-known of the cases were stolen fan art from independent artists, which is the same demographic the Design Contest was aimed to.  I’m an artist myself and I wouldn’t want to support a store that steals from my peers.

The people running Hot Topic have zero respect to artists and to copyright law. They’ve been ripping-off independent artists’ storefronts, and continue do so. The whole company really should have been shut down long ago.

If you support artists, independent, fan artist, or any kind, you should oppose Hot Topic and MSPA’s association with them!

Tell What Pumpkin to kick Hot Topic out of the Design contest RIGHT NOW.

We have so little time left to stop this please tell them that it is completely unacceptable to do any sort of business with petty art thieves.

Even if you don’t know what to say, or if you think it would compromise the contestants; It won’t. Just please voice your thoughts in anyway you can put them. Don’t let Hot Topic get a dime out of Homestuck.

Things I am *incredibly* uncomfortable with right now


  • The “Hail Hydra” meme being popular at the same time that an anti-Semetic hate crime kills three people right before Passover.
  • … that’s it, really.

My grandmother gave me
Her Southern duplicity:
If you hide arsenic
In enough sweet tea,
No one can taste it.

My father gave me
A taste for bourbon
And the sea, a pirate
Marooned in a landlocked
State and a century
Without privateers.
His ashes are in the sea
Now, and for the first
Time I have the feeling
That he is at peace.

My brother gave me
Fear and a closet
Deep enough to hide
All my secrets in.
In his he has comic
Books, toys from when
He was a child, things
He can’t enjoy now
That he’s a man.
In mine hides
My girlfriend.
Our closets are not
Altogether different. 

My grandfather gave me
His mania and an ear
For the banjo. He lost
A finger because he refused
To stop making,
Even when the Parkinson’s
Plucked at his muscles
Like he plucked at banjos
And mandolins and anything
Else with strings.
I can’t sleep at night
For hearing the music
Of my ancestors
And the business of my hands. 

My mother gave me
Her accent, crisp
And flat as a Michigan
Winter. When I laugh
And call her “Yank,”
She reminds Me
That we sound
The same. 

My countless, unnamed
Ancestresses gave me
Defiance and a fear
Of enclosed spaces, girls
Who married too young,
Who never left their
Hometowns, who tasted
Honeysuckle on their papas’
Fences and wore their skirts
Too short. If I prayed
I would pray for the ghosts
Of them that roost
In the trees of our family’s farm. 

I gave myself
A pen and paper
And the unofficial duty
Of scribe.
I will not forget
Those who came before me,
And I will not be forgotten
By those who come after.
I will not be nameless.
I will remember.


The abandoned Ouerbacker Mansion in Louisville, Kentucky.  Built in the 1860’s by coffee merchant Samuel Ouerbacker, it housed a tax preparation business throughout much of the 20th century.

blood moon

sometimes, the earth rubs 
up against the moon
scrapes away the pale
flesh that lights our sky
until she bleeds
the same way we
silently chafe against 
each other until we tear
let our bright anger pour
red from raw wounds
grit our teeth against the sting
until they scab over 
leave scars that shine
a little less brightly


Killing a man at a wedding? What sort of monster would do such a thing?
