About My Blog.

Welcome! This is "Catatonic Digressions."
Most, if not all readers don't understand my blog's title. It's an old inside joke from a forum long gone. I was going to change it, but since it's been "confusing" for so long, I decided to leave it. Don't worry about what it means, the content of the blog is what is important.

Unfortunately, my blog isn't what I set out for it to be. A disturbed and manic online stalker and cyberbully has made it impossible for me to post about family, my son, life in my part of New York...so I stopped (for the most part), and I mostly reblog and repost what I feel is important, necessary or close to my heart. As for the stalking sociopath, she can go to hell for harassing me and my family since mid-2008. You can't scare me offline with a few lame threats and dozens of pages of defamation, abuse, depravity and libel. I'm bitchy like that. ;)
(Anyone who knows me knows I'm not actually a bitch, but let's allow this psychopath to think I'm a bitch to her blackened heart's content—it seems to make her feel she has some sort of control over me…and it does not.)

If you read a story and you feel moved in any way, comment. Comments are more than welcome.

Unlike those online who lie and hide behind fake photos and insanely fabricated stories, I'm a real person. I'm real and I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. After years of putting up with online abuse by manipulative, pathological liars, attention whores or narcissists, I've had it. Don't bother me with pathetic drama. I have no time for these types of people and their need to absorb others' time and attention.

Feel free to email me if you have a story or cause you would like shared, especially if it pertains to animal rights, liberation, veganism, animal welfare, health and well-being, geekery, Macs and computer dorkiness, music, lowbrow art, kitchy stuff, skateboards, the beach, swimming, diving, NYC, beading (it's my hobby), recipes (love to cook, especially if I made the recipe up myself!), VEGAN!, ALF, Sea Shepherd, Action for Animals, NIO, 269Life and/or anything you think I might enjoy or others might—you never know. It doesn't always have to be serious. Hilarious stories, local NY, funny videos or photos, photobombs (especially if they contain pets!)...I might be partially censored, but I'm not closed down!

Please, join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and follow them and The Barbi Twins on Twitter and Facebook.

For the Oceans,
Suzanne

The Barbi Twins Make a Statement with 'Skin Trade'

Shane and Sia Barbi will be the first to tell you they are famous for their record-breaking Playboy issue -- and they want to put their fame to good use.

"We are using that 18th minute of fame to do something good," Shane tells "Extra."
The Barbi Twins are featured in the upcoming documentary "Skin Trade" from filmmaker Shannon Keith. "Skin Trade" premieres Feb. 25 and takes a look at the exploitation of animals for their fur. "It's not fashionable and not pretty. It's offensive," Shane says about clothing made from animal fur.
Sia says the sisters want to "speak for the little ones who don't have voices."
Shane and Sia appear on the film's controversial and gruesome poster. Shane explains, "Without the skin, we don't have that 'glamorous look,'" similar to animals that are skinned for their fur.
The Barbi Twins have had a passion for animals since they were younger and recently helped rescue animals from Hurricane Katrina and the California fires. They also launched the animal activism site TheKittyLiberationFront.org and donate all the proceeds from their book "The Eco Anti-Diet" to charities for animals.
The sisters are currently working with Willie Nelson to introduce humane education in schools and Animal Aid Live, a benefit concert to raise awareness about animal welfare issues through music.
The Barbi Twins will appear on Howard Stern's radio show on Feb. 25 with Nelson to talk about animal activism, specifically saving wild horses.
