Whenever someone refers to the gay community as “queer folk” I imagine us all like woodland sprites, we are the queer folk community, we are born of flowers and fairy dust, we are destroying the sanctity of marriages and corrupting children

happybirthdaymarkgatiss:

Gift for Gatiss. One month to go.

17th October 2014 

It’s that time of year again. A date for your diaries. Mark Gatiss’ birthday. The man who makes you laugh, and cry. Who writes for your favourite shows, and stars in them too. 

Mark will be 48 this year and once again we wanted to give something back to this wonderful and help him celebrate his birthday.

Get involved however you can, this blog is now yours. Leave birthday messages in our ask and we’ll publish them for him to see. Our submit box is also open so go mad and post a photo or video, you can also send things via happybirthdaymarkgatiss@gmail.com. It’s totally up to you. We’ll accept any sort of ‘Happy Birthday’. If we can bring a smile to his face, even for a second, our work is done.

We also have a donation page open if you’d like to do a little more than just say Happy Birthday. As many of you may know, Mark is a patron of The London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard, LLGS, a voluntary organisation who have been providing support and information for the LGBT community since 1974.

Mark became a patron for LLGS a number of years ago and this is why we’ve set up a donation page in honour of his birthday. If you have a bit of money to spare and wish to donate to this small, but essential, organisation you can do so here. They operate on the generosity of volunteers, every day of the year, but still need support for running costs. On average it costs just £3 to answer a call, but it could make a huge different to the person that needs help or support. 

Donate Here

How to donate: Click on the Virgin Giving Link and follow the instructions. You can choose how much you give. Paypal, Visa, Mastercard and American Express are all accepted. If you are a tax payer in the UK please don’t forget to ‘gift aid’ your donation, this will allow LLGS to claim back tax on your donation. You don’t have to live in the UK to donate. Virign will accept transactions from all over the world, however the donation will be taken in UK pounds sterling. So the amount you donate in your currency will differ to the amount in pounds. Please go here for up to date currency conversion rates

For example to donate £5, the amount you would *actually* donate would be $8.11/€6.27 

£10 would be $15.90/€11.92.

£20 would be $31.84/€23.84

£50 would be $79.51/€59.61

Please double check the exchange rate, these figures were correct at the time of writing but exchange rates change all the time. 

Charity Auction

 Have you ever wanted to commission a piece of art, or a fic? Now maybe your chance. 

We ran this last year and it was very successful. However first we need something to auction! If your an artist, writer, photoshopper or podficcer that would be willing to donate your skills to help raise money then please get in contact. 

You can specify before the auction exactly what your offering and anything you won’t do.

For example an artist might offer: 2 characters in colour, no background. Nothing explict. Sherlock characters only. 

A writer may offer: A 221b drabble. Any characters. 

It is for you to decide what you’re willing to offer.

If you’d like to take part we need a description of what you’re willing to offer and a couple of links to previous pieces of work for reference.

I’m hoping to run the auction on the weekend beginning 11th so signups will be closing on the 8th October.

Once signups are over there will be an auction site created where people can bid on the skills on offer. Once the bid is over, winners will be required to make the winning bid as a donation and the artist/writer/ect will be given the URL of the winner.

We will make it clear that there is no time limit on when commissions must be finished, and for those concerned the finished work will not be linked on the birthday blog so there will be no chance of Mark seeing it.

If anyone has any questions regarding this please contact us. Please PLEASE share this with your talented friends, we would like to get as many people involved as possible. 

What if I can’t donate? That’s ok, we know not everyone will be able to. You can still send in your birthday messages and celebrate with us.

If everyone can reblog this post to get it out there, that’d be great. 

Thank you!

17th October, put it in your diary!

nerdfighter-art:

Hello there, artists of nerdfighteria! After the success of the Nerdfighter Art Tier of last year’s Project for Awesome, I’m teaming up with the P4A team once again and need your help!

The P4A, as always, will be raising money to give to charities. However, some people have more time and talent to give than money (you know who you are) so we’d like to recruit you to provide creations for reward tiers in our IndieGoGo campaign. You create the artwork and it will be and sent to a fellow nerdfighter who claims the perk!

  • Ideally, you will be making 15+ items and you will be shipping them to Missoula, Montana to be distributed to the people who claimed the Nerdfighter Art Perk!
  • We’re looking for small, easily shipped items. This can include jewelry, knitwear, small plushies, small drawings and paintings, digital art prints, etc.
  • The pieces of art do not need to be nerdfighter-themed but it is highly encouraged! 
  • The estimated worth of the art should be about $25-30 because the perk will be sold for $40. That’s not a strict amount, just keep it in mind when making your proposals!
  • If you’re interested, you need to email us at nerdfighterart@gmail.com by October 10th with an example of what you have/will be creating and what quantity. A picture of it for us to see would be extra helpful when sorting through everyone’s submissions!
  • We will let you know if it’s reasonable and provide additional information around October 13th, giving you more than a month to complete your pieces.

We’re extremely excited to be working on this project again this year, we hope you’re excited too! ^-^

- Emma, Valerie, and Hank

Thank you to everyone who donated art to the P4A last year and to those of you who plan on doing so this year!

So today Tomblr is divided between the fans that claim Tom’s performance was shitty, and the ones that almost died at the thought.

Well, obviously he’s not the best singer in the world, and having in mind that this was probably his first time singing country music in a country music festival (no…

Well said.

He was better than most
