P.S. I know I said I was going to have a separate sims 4 blog, but I realized I just don’t have the time to run an entirely different blog. I’m really really sorryyy. All of my 4 posts will be tagged accordingly with “s4cc” or “Sims 4” so you can block tags if you don’t want to see this stuff. PLZ4GIVEME. :( I’m still going to be doing 3 stuff, I swearz.
For some reason the site was pointing back at the old server, so we’re looking at a few hours before it fixes it’s self.
Sorry for any inconvenience!
Exciting news! The Internet Slowdown net neutrality protest planned for September 10th is really taking off. This morning, a dozen of the world’s largest websites announced that they’re joining in a big way. Sites you know and love like Etsy, Kickstarter, Wordpress, Vimeo, Mozilla, Namecheap, Foursquare, imgur, and reddit.
Will you join too?
Oh, but that’s not all that happened this morning. Just a few hours ago I got a phone call from a number in Washington, DC. The person on the other end tried to ask some questions without identifying themselves, but when I asked outright they told me they were from NCTA — yep, as in the National Cable Television Association, aka Comcast’s lobbying army.
They wanted to know when we would be announcing the names of the companies participating in the September 10th net neutrality protest. I suggested they take a look at the front page of The Guardian, or at this op-ed by the CEO of Etsy in Wired, and mentioned they may want to check out this TIME Magazine article. Then I hung up.
After the call, I couldn’t stop smiling. I’ve been organizing for many years and one thing I’ve learned is that powerful enemies only start contacting you when they’re scared. If they don’t think you’re being effective, they ignore you.
Friends, we are giving some of the most powerful interests in the world a run for their money. And they have tons of money. We’ve got Comcast & company shaken up and scared. This is our chance to to drive the message home and win this once and for all.
All the tools you need for the battle are here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th
If you’ve got a website, blog, or Tumblr run the “slowdown” widget on your site to symbolically show your users a “loading” message and help people understand what the Web could be like without net neutrality. If you don’t have a site, change your profile pic to the “loading” symbol, so that the entire Internet is alive with protest on September 10th, and forward this email to everyone you know to spread the word.
The truth is, unlike Comcast and their cronies, we have nothing to hide. A report from the Sunlight Foundation yesterday showed that 99% of comments the FCC has received are in support of net neutrality. The public agrees, and hell hath no fury like the Internet scorned. As I write this email, I’m feeling more hopeful about our chances of victory in the battle for net neutrality than I have since we started this fight.
We can win this, and when we do, it’s a victory we can put in the history books.
For the Internet,

P.S. Our friends at Namecheap are really throwing down in the fight for net neutrality. Check out the awesome video they just put up at NetNeutrality.com (nice URL right?), wait til you get to the part where people are riding on toilets chasing wall street bankers up a bike ramp.
P.P.S. There’s still time to get your very own #TeamInternet t-shirt or hoodie. Go here and reserve yours before they’re gone! http://teespring.com/stores/team-internet
If you were having trouble with these tattoos:
Something happened.. idk what, that turned them into a “file” instead of a “.rar”.
If you’ve already downloaded them/still have them on your computer: You should be able to open it using WinRAR. Both files were there when I tried it.
If you downloaded them and deleted them: I’ve repackaged, double checked, and switched out the links for the download. So you can re-download them.
I’m super terribly sorry. I have no idea how I even did that. :(
Downtown one evening talking to friends and I hear this sighing and moaning, like someone was getting hot & heavy. Looked around and here’s this pair around the side of the building swooning over each other…they’re cute.

So apologies times many if something breaks and you’re trying to download. >_>
He should be done in a little bit.
