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.

Donna Karan, You're Disgusting.

A long time ago.. a very long time ago, I used to buy designer clothing and
shoes, boots, pocketbooks — anything I could buy when I had that cash in
my hands. Clinton was in office, and oh man, I was not lacking for anything.
I would go into stores I'd never shopped in before and buy things I'd never
had been able to afford before. I still watched for sales and I still made sure
it was 20% or 30% off, but I sure did buy a lot back then. That included a
few Donna Karan items.

Well, Donna, you make me fucking sick. Those days are long gone, and
so are the days of most designers using real fur. I myself don't even buy
bags made of leather when there are so many fashionable designer bags
out there, vegan bags by vegan designers. I don't need to buy leather shoes
or boots when the hottest stiletto shoe I see is by an Australian outfit and
100% vegan — their shoes, boots and clothing. The most sexy shoes I keep
seeing are not leather. That tells you something.

Whoops, digressing. Back to Donna and her fur thing.

Okay... Donna is now labeled... the Bunny Butcher.


Donna Karan knows about the suffering that occurs on fur farms, but she has made the cruel decision to use the skins of rabbits in her clothing lines. LEARN MORE >>>

Help Stop the Bunny Butcher

Tell Donna Karan Executives to Ditch Fur!

Despite knowing about the suffering that goes into every fur-trimmed coat, hat, and bag, Donna Karan has made the cruel decision to use the skins of dead rabbits in her clothing lines.
Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages, and fur farmers use the cheapest and cruelest killing methods available. Foxes, minks, coyotes, and rabbits—and even dogs and cats—are bludgeoned, genitally electrocuted, and often skinned alive for their fur.
One of the best ways that you can help animals who are beaten and tortured for their fur is to tell Donna Karan executives that you'll boycott the designer's collections until she stops using fur. Many top designers—including Stella McCartney, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, and Liz Claiborne—have chosen to create wonderful work without using animal fur.
Speak out against the killing of animals for their skins. Write to Donna Karan executives now and urge them to dump fur for good.

Why Donna Karan?

Every year, millions of animals are killed for the clothing industry, and 85 percent of fur comes from the hell-on-Earth known as the "factory farm." Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages where they have only enough room to take a few steps in any direction.
Fur farmers use the cheapest killing methods available, including neck-breaking, suffocation, poisoning, and anal or vaginal electrocution. Many animals are electrocuted by having rods inserted into their rectums and 240 volts of electricity sent through their bodies, frying the animals from the inside out in order to keep from damaging the pelt. The animals convulse, shake, and often cry out before suffering painful heart attacks. Crude killing methods aren't always effective, and sometimes animals "wake up" while they are being skinned.
More than half the fur in the U.S. comes from China, where millions of dogs and cats are bludgeoned, hanged, bled to death, and sometimes even skinned alive for their fur. And Chinese fur is often deliberately mislabeled, so, if you wear any fur, there's no way of knowing whose skin you're in.
Donna Karan knows about the suffering that goes into every fur-trimmed coat, hat, and bag, but her clothing lines now contain the skins of dead rabbits.
 take action and boycott Donna Karan, the bunny butcher, until she permanently removes all fur from her collections.
