Hello and welcome to my random blog! My name is Cat and I'm 27 years old. Like I said, this is a random blog and so I post anything from art, cats, thylacines, rants, and just about anything else.

All artwork here, unless stated otherwise, is copyrighted to their creators.

»»» ANITA

It was from this video where she was giving a testimonial for a pyramid scheme style “teleseminar” course.

… that I found mentioned in an earlier re : Tropes video that I was able to dig up her old website on archive.org

http://web.archive.org/web/20070703184334/http://neonandchrome.com/

(might want to archive that before it goes down someday)

The website is pretty much her early attempt to start an online business selling her Marketting PR abilities…

- - -

From that I found a phone number : 949-981-1107

… which when googled brought up a few websites where Anita seemed to be working as a PR agent for a bullshit “how handwriting determines success” handwriting analysis. Some guy named Bart Baggett.

- - -

Notice the pattern here so far… pyrmaid schemes… junk science… social manipulation, etc.

- - -

While on archive.org I also thought to search for name and came up with this :

This is the one where she sounds pretty ignorant about art and such… she was young, but still… shows a history of her passion for activism overshadowing her passion for rational thought… imho.

Googling neonandchrome comes up with a few things related to her… obviously a handle she used to go by… but this was the only page I could find definite evidence of being hers…

https://www.etsy.com/people/neonandchrome?ref=owner_profile_leftnav

- - -

- - -

Also from her old page at neonandchrome.com she has this list of things she used to be involved in :

http://web.archive.org/web/20070912100534/http://www.neonandchrome.com/events.html

- - -

From there I cross referenced “anita” with “Freedom Uprising Festival” and found this :


http://groups.yahoo.com/group/laamn/message/6077

Which shows a former email address of hers starting with “Anitasark@”

So I googled simply “anitasark”

Came up with another reference to the Freedom Uprising Festival, but this time with her old full email address :

http://www.sputnikmusic.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-503812-p-148.html

anitasark@sbcglobal.net

Can’t find anything in reference to that email address though.

- - -

Another interesting thing about her neonandchrome page is tthe design page where she states : “Performance can fuse together entertainment and social consciousness. With my costumes I like to play with social stereotypes and test the audiences boundaries. “

http://web.archive.org/web/20070911162040/http://www.neonandchrome.com/design.html

… and which google brings up her contribution to a group gender bending cosplay photos here : http://www.flickr.com/groups/1206798@N20/pool/anitasarkeesian/?view=sm

Nothing really bad there or anything… just stuff to keep in mind… especially the whole “test the audience boundaries” part.

- - -

Check out some of her early photos still on her flickr page whe she doesn’t exactly seem disgusted by various women in provocative outfits or dressing up as Barbie or Elvira… :

(In the picture of Elvira someone comments “Dude looks like a lady”… but Anita didn’t delete it or respond. :/

Sexualized storm trooper… obviously I’m using the terms “Sexualized” here based on her on criticisms she throws out since starting femfreq…

- - -

Early mention of a guy named Jonathan…. back in 2009…. maybe the same rebelious pixel Jonathan she’s now doing the Tropes videos with… mentions his Dad and Grandma at one point… in some other photos… maybe they are together? : https://www.flickr.com/photos/anitasarkeesian/4066025420/in/photostream/

- - -

Interestingly enough she didn’t have any pictures from Wondercon 2011 that were as overtly sexual as her dragoncon 2009 pictures. I guess she was slowly attaining her moral compass….

OKAY. I don’t remember WHERE I found this exactly, but this is Anita’s old handle : “sunstainedlegs”

I want to say that was her handle on a yahoo group related to the Freedom Uprising stuff…

… and this is her old youtube channel : http://www.youtube.com/user/sunstainedlegs

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHMXkSezVnY&feature=c4-overview&list=UUQbM9MrxmX2Vaj4fGDXsnCg

Seta is her mother which you can see in a photo somewhere on her flickr channel….

Here is that post that I’m pretty sure is hers, about the L Word

https://www.sho.com/site/message/thread.do?topicid=228258&boardid=4794&groupid=12&messageid=3919741&pagenum=1&view=linear

- - -

A quote from her on someone else’s youtube channel where she is actually having a civil discussion about Sarah Palin…

“I appreciate your point about not dismissing all of someone’s qualities just because you may be in political opposition to him/her but the fault in this argument is ignoring the ethical implications. Even if she did perform well, your analysis does not recognize the content of her performance. This woman is clearly a warmonger, purposely fueling racist fire against Obama and hates gay people… etc. etc. Her performance in no way constitutes the description of “smart, engaged, and tough.”

Also, good fucking god… after going through her flickr, her past youtube stuff, she travels A LOT… and she eats nice food A LOT.

I guarantee you her family has some fucking money…

JONATHAN

Let the Jonathan Mcintosh history begin :

Back in 2006 he was attending this conference : http://networkedpublics.org/conference

Photo from the conference on his flickr page : http://www.flickr.com/photos/jonathanmcintosh/138189436/

“From September 2005 to June 2006 a team of thirteen scholars at the The University of Southern California’s Annenberg Center for Communication explored how new and maturing networking technologies are transforming the way in which we interact with content, media sources, other individuals and groups, and the world that surrounds us.”

- - -

His flickr page is filled with him going to various DIY video / activist / conferences…

Jonathan back in 2009 “sexist video game” Tomb Raider…

http://www.flickr.com/photos/jonathanmcintosh/3745040581/

I think it’s pretty obvious who is the brains behind this operation…

The fucker has been a media activist since 2006 or before… Anita wants to be a part of something bigger… she is the perfect figure head for him!

- - -

He calls this sexist… doesn’t seem to know the difference between sexualization and sexism. :/

“Rainforest Action Network working with trainers from the Ruckus Society and The Indigenous Environmental Network do a training camp for local activists at Sibbald Point Provincial Park in Ontario Canada.’

- - -

Then on down to Boston : http://www.flickr.com/photos/jonathanmcintosh/3763236412/

Seriously. It’d be really interesting to use these flickr photos from both their profiles to map out exactly where they have traveled and the estimated costs….

Sure enough… those nice kickstarter photos were taken my Jonathan… same style as this photo… back in earlier the Feminist Frequency days… seems like they’ve been a team for a while now.

Samantha Keely Smith

Samantha Keely Smith‘s artwork represents a striving to reconcile the inner world of instinct and the tidal sweep of our emotional life, with an external world that is both beautiful and hostile in its natural grandeur. She attempts to map the place where these worlds intersect.The translucent layers of paint, contrasting soft ethereal brushwork and harder edged sweeping gestures, echo this divergence and depict a timeless place that hovers between dream and reality in a way that is simultaneously alluring and menacing. The work exhibits the struggle between and among the variety of human impulses: impulses that are as necessary as they are contradictory, and which therefore constantly undermine our psychic and social coherence even as they endow us with vitality, soul, and life.

This drawing tried very hard not to happen tonight, but here it is! He started off with a cute face, but I couldn’t draw it right so he got an angry face. Which turned out cute anyway.
