From our friend and talented artist Amy Kerr

Thanks to Lisa Smith and 1623 Studios, I Am More has a video and it was released the other day.


Lisa is apparently a genius because I was a nervous wreck and you really can’t tell! She did an amazing job of capturing the spirit of the project, so feel free to share!

The .01% is winning and we’re all losing because it.

These are people desperate for attention and media outlets desperate for clicks and views to sell advertising.  It’s the perfect storm.  The media company knows it’s so outrageous that it will get people talking and viewing.  99.9 % of people have no problem with any of it.  It’s the .01% that is vocal and desperate for attention and not only are they getting it, but they are influencing what is being shown on tv and print through the fear of losing advertising dollars.  Sad really.

The perpetually offended are winning with a teeny tiny minority.

Thanks @aliciadewolfe for the graphic.
