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.

Help Camille Marino Fight The Vivisection Complex

Please share far and wide. No amount is too small. Help a great animal advocate, victimized by both the Vivisection Complex and treacherous former colleagues, to mount an effective defense.

Courageous animal rights activist, Camille Marino, will be facing trial in Detroit, Michigan on November 14th. Camille has been Targeted by the Vivisection Complex as the number one threat to their continued 
ability to torture non-human animals in anonymity for profit.

They are attempting to make an example of her in their ongoing battle to erode our First Amendment rights and intimidate the Animal Rights movement into impotence. Her current prosecutor is under enormous pressure from vivisectors around the country to neutralize Camille and it appears that the state will be seeking an upward deviation in her sentencing guidelines should she be convicted. The FBI confiscated her cell phone in May and is most likely actively cooperating in this case.

In addition, as a result of her ongoing battle to expose the horrific abuses at the University of Florida, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement raided her home in June, confiscating her computer and other items. Camille spent her own money to sue UF and legally compel them to release their records, which document the experiments to which they subject monkeys. Because of these and other actions she has taken in defense of the sentient victims of vivisection, Camille is deserving of the support of everyone interested in ending the oppression of animals.

The costs of mounting a legal defense, repeated round trips to Detroit, replacing the items confiscated by government agencies and continuing to fearlessly represent the animals, are staggering. Camille is now in serious debt for the cost of her recent trip to Detroit for her pretrial hearing, and she must pay her attorney $6000, so he can properly prepare for her trial.

Whatever you think of Camille's style, she is a committed and incorruptible advocate for the animals. She needs and deserves the support of every animal activist. I urge you to give what you can to help this dedicated activist in her time of need. Donations may be sent via PayPal or check.
