Audio Visual Aids and other stuff, uncalled for

I’ll start with pictures that have caught my eye:

I love statistics-

Stool Joke:

Who doesn’t?

Bottom line: I want my socks back.

Morans-

Found on a nameless website that doesn’t exist and isn’t at all interesting anyway click if it doesn’t animate right away):

Frogs, frogs and frogs:

Info Links:

Weird Frog Facts!

Wikipedia entry

Exploratorium Page on Frogs

That’s pictures for now and Fun Frog Factoids.

Links to which you ought to have a look- see:

Ionia– an intentional community supporting mental health recovery in Alaska. I’ve met some folks from there and it appears to be a very cool and responsible pro-active response to the Public Mental Hell System. Go to their website here.

Bi-Polar Blast– shedding it’s label. Now is called Beyond Meds. It’s a featured link on my sidebar but visit now for the fresh perspective. Click here.

Law Project for Psychiatric Rights (PsychRights) is a non-profit, tax exempt 501(c)(3) public interest law firm whose mission is to mount a  strategic legal campaign against forced psychiatric drugging and electroshock in the United States akin to what Thurgood Marshall and the NAACP mounted in the 40’s and 50’s on behalf of African American civil rights.  The public mental health system is creating a huge class of chronic mental patients through forcing them to take ineffective, yet extremely harmful drugs. Go here.

Psychiatry Deconstruction Zone– Successful schizophrenia, go here.

Pendle Hill free downloads– Quaker info, not just for Friends anymore. Go here.

Protest Records! Great source for politically progressive music, all free. Includes many artists you know and some you should learn more about. Go here.

FYI- Just got this from the Oregon Consumer-Survivor Coalition.

The Oregon State Hospital building where “One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest” was filmed is now empty, ready to be torn down. Oregon Statesman Journal has a video tour and an artcle here.

This is what it looks like from the outside-

Thought I’d throw in a scene from the movie-

Link to a website that is working to save the building for historical reasons:
