Update on us after the Tornado hit our house.

March 7, 2012 at 9:51 pm (Uncategorized)

Update on us after the Tornado hit our house.
In case you don’t know on the 18th of Feb a 3 or 4 story tall tree was twisted in half by a tornado and landed in my living room and kitchen.Both rooms got flooded so the house is unlivable.We didn’t have insurance so we couldn’t afford to repair the home and I don’t think it was even repairable.The red cross helped us for 3 days but after that the Gov did NOTHING to help us!If it weren’t for the help and kindness of friends and family we would have been homeless.I had 9.00 to my name the day it happened.Nobody 2,4 or even 8 legged was hurt and that is all that really matters.
We are doing ok though!
We are getting settled into the rent house.I have allot of my art/business stuff moved over here. I’m still trying to figure out what to do about the kiln.I had a separate shed outside of the destroyed house and since there is naturally no power turned on the home I can’t fire there.And the kiln is so large it takes a plug like you plug a drier into.So maybe once I make some more money I can afford to have a line run or SOMETHING.I was going to get power turned on back at the house just to use the kiln but I don’t think I can afford that.It’s been a ordeal with having to try and move things from one place to another.And it’s also been a pain because since the flooring the living room flooded really bad and the kitchen also flooded,there is issues of trying to salvage things,having to throw heavy stuff out,cut up wet carpets ect to try and stave off the mildew.Allot of stuff that didn’t even get rained on had to be thrown out because the humidity is so bad as it is here and with a wet living room it’s even worse.
It’s really exhausting some days having to go to the old house and try and throw out ruined things and try and save non-ruined stuff and then come to the rent house and find a darn place for it.
My cousin bought me a work desk yesterday so I will be able to get back to work soon so I can make some money.
If anybody wants to help out,we greatly appreciate it.And when people have been donating I basically look at it like they bought something and will send everybody a thank you gift.
We are still in need of a few things so <a href=”http://www.walmart.com/cp/Gift-Cards/96894 ” title=”walmart gift cards “>walmart gift cards</a>and lowes <a href=”http://www.lowes.com/pl_Gift+Cards_4294745013_4294937087_ ” title=”gift cards”>gift cards</a> or <a href=”http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?partNumber=199999959&gcval=&#8221; title=”Home depot”>Home depot</a> gift cards are greatly appreciated

Does one gain ANYTHING as a alt model to secure their future?

Hey Models I have a question.Most of
you are in your mid twenties,are pushing 30 or are like me and ARE 30.Now I want to know how how much many of these adorers,stalkers and fans that we all talk to and try and help and just give general attention to have put into OUR BANK ACCOUNT?How much have they given us all that we will have to fall back on when modeling is no longer a option?This is why most of this is fairy glamour or as I call it bullshit we just try our best to exploit.And if ANY of you give me shit for daring to say this I will personally drive to where you are and beat your lunch out you.I have art as my job first and foremost so I don’t even have to think about something to “fall back on” as modeling is just something I do for added publicity for my art.And actually thankful in the aspect that I’m not chosen as a model because I’m pretty or youthful looking.I have more of the sort of Diamanda Galas thing going on where people just use me as a model because I’m a weirdo.BUT I’m damn fucking tired of there being no 50/50 as a model or as somebody that is treated like a free freak show to people.Especially if you don’t do nudity,which doesn’t even pay enough to make anything worthwhile.100.00 for say 200 photos and you have to split the 100.00 with the photographer isn’t shit.And if you aren’t willing to lay and spread you get even less and I’m sorry but I think it’s bullshit.

Help me and Clint go viral!!!!! Read Here.

July 22, 2010 at 4:06 pm (punk, punk rock, ugly shyla, uglyshyla) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Long Story Short: go to Front page my friend Clints site to the left of the article about me http://www.clintcatalyst.com/blog/she-aint-ugly-shes-my-shyla is a SQUARE RED AND GRAY button that on the left of the Green Straight Jacket pic says “Move This Blog Up! On Blogsurfer” and it will move us up in the ranking.Which makes us happy.
#2 2) Download & install
the Alexa toolbar .Point of
all this? I promise that even as few as 5 of my friends & 5 of Shyla’s friends add Alexa tonight? By this time tomorrow, we’ll all see a notable improvement. Which helps ALL of us.And if y’all will be so kind post a review on out sites while at our links.You can do so by clicking the little clip board icon on the way to the right of the toolbar.
Deal is: Alexa is a site ‘ranking’ system owned by Amazon.com. With the Alexa toolbar included on your browser, it shows at any moment the ranking of your sites, my site, the buzzfeed site…fkn’ everything.

Ok that was the short of it,
Written by my friend Clint Catalyst he’s trying to get us to both go viral,so please read the post and help us two southern fried freaks out.Clint is a huge talent and has been a awesome friend to me.
As a “third force” workin’ to help my home skillet Ugly Shyla ♡ capitalize on her skyrocketing ~*viral*~ status [i.e., help her to obtain a bit of the greenage & notoriety that Paul McCarthy, whose doll is including among the list & is doing JUST FINE with his big international gallery shows; ya n…aw mean?] I’ve added a piece about Miss Thingus Herselfness here http://www.clintcatalyst.com/blog/she-aint-ugly-shes-my-shyla // Now, this only takes a second, EmEffers, & it’s not like I’m asking you to vote for me for me for some Model Mayhem contest, nor am I spamming you to buy one of my products or go see me perform at some locale 2,927 mi from where you live. // Instead, it’s THIS SIMPLE Melody Cruz (who just called & kindly volunteered) AS WELL AS ANYBODY ELSE WHO’S AN ACTUAL FRIEND, EVEN & ESPECIALLY IF YOU’VE EVER ASKED ME TO HELP YOU PROMOTE SOMETHING:

1) Front page of my site, to the left of the article about Shyla http://www.clintcatalyst.com/blog/she-aint-ugly-shes-my-shyla is a SQUARE RED AND GRAY button that on the left of the Green Straight Jackt pic says “Move This Blog Up! On Blogsurfer” — Each
time a person clicks it, the action moves the huge-ass article about Shyla [and I do
mean HUGE..big sexy em-effing photos of her pin-up photographs, visual
art, dolls, ~&~ linkage to the various sites with juicy teaser
photos]… I SAY, EACH TIME A PERSON CLICKS THE BUTTON, IT MOVES THE BLOGATURE TO THE TOP OF THAT SITE’S BLOGROLL. A quick 2 second click now, maybe one later when you think about it? BAM! Yes, that *WILL* MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

—ALSO, if any of you have blogs of your own? The next tip will help YOU while you’re helping her (& me, & any other cool blogger) ALL AT THE SAME TIME. It’s also quick & easy, so spare me the symphony of sighs. (Aiight? Or +AHEM!+ “Please” & “Thank You,” that is…) =]

2) Download & install
the Alexa toolbar for either Firefox/Mozilla/or Internet Explorer. For
whatever reason, it isn’t compatible with Safari, but that’s not the
point. Deal is: Alexa is a site ‘ranking’ system owned by Amazon.com. With
the Alexa toolbar included on your browser, it shows at any moment the
ranking of your sites, my site, the buzzfeed site…fkn’ everything.

so you know: the main # is a site’s ranking OUT OF THE ENTIRE WORLD, so don’t freak your geek/feel the need to be embarrassed if your URL wields a scary #. Besides, after you’ve had it installed for around a month, you’ll be able to
see break-downs by country, as well as even which state you rank
highest in.

Translation? Some of my friends started out with a
rank of 22 million something. What’s exciting is
watching how quickly a couple of articles can make your number increase. For
a personal site, making it into the top 100K in the world is kind of a
big deal. In fact, only one of my friends has done it thus far with a
personal site–but she’s since fallen out of that bracket. The top 100
K means you’re ‘up there’ competing with every company, web-zine,
magazine, social networking site, et cetera. When I first added the
toolbar, my worldwide stats bummed me out, as they were pretttty bad… though I’ve since made it as far up as 172K (still a far way to go from the top 100, which hopefully
someday I”ll hit… but that was better than what it is now, anyway: I’ve dipped back down to the 185K range intl., 40,000 in the U.S., & 17K
in Cali, where the majority of my traffic originates.

Point of
all this? I promise that even as few as 5 of my friends & 5 of Shyla’s friends
add Alexa tonight? By this time tomorrow, we’ll all see a notable
improvement. & the day after that? Even better. That goes for Shyla, as well as you, as well as me… because we can either all help each other & benefit when the river rises, or suffocate in bitter “Me!It’s Team Me!It’s All About Me!” cunty competitiveness.

Too brash or direct, kiddos? Delete me from your friends’ list. But when you see me showin’ somebody else ‘The Love’ tomorrow, or next week? Don’t come weaseling around thinking it’s your turn, bub.

3) Ah!
& of course, if you already utilize Mixx/Digg/StumbleUpon/Yahoo buzz/Google buzz/Delicious/Plurk/Fark/Hipstr/Bordom/or any of the other sites of that nature? Here’s another neat little tip that you’ll notice:

If you’ve tried them in the past, though quit after a couple tries because “nobody gave YOU any traaafffffic,” answer me this: did you only post links to your own content, or did you have enough respect for the communities that you contributed to them elsewise?

For every single URL you toss into the forum, contribute to at least 5 others. Amber Osborne knows this to be true, & I’ve never had a single conversation with her about it. Haven’t, ’cause there’s no need to: I already see her workin’ that social media magic a lá Miss Destructo. It’s something so, so basic; maybe that’s why it’s so easy for most folks to overlook.

Whatever the case, congrats to Shyla for a post on BuzzFeed catchin’ the attention of the Huffington Post—& by proxy, that opening the proverbial floodgates.

Now let’s help her, which helps me, which helps you. Unless, of course. you’d rather try your luck playing TEAM SOLO-N-SO, to which I respond:

Best of luck!
