LAWSUIT UPDATE!
The meritless lawsuit brought against us by Microcosm Publishing is going to trial next month and we need your help! 
The trial is happening in Portland and we are desperately trying to get funds together to get our family and our lawyer out to Oregon so we can defend ourselves in court. (To give you an indication of how dire our situation is, we received a “final notice” from the IRS today warning us that they are going to levy our assets because we haven’t been able to pay our quarterly taxes.) 
As we’ve said before, we aren’t looking for donations, but if we’ve got a book or zine you’ve been eyeing, we could really use your support right now. To sweeten the deal for you, we’re doing CONTEST MANIA for the rest of the month. 
Everyone who orders from Pioneers Press this month will get entered into a drawing to win one of four $40 Pioneers Press shopping sprees! We’ll announce one winner every Sunday afternoon. 
AND if you reblog this here plea, we’ll enter you into a contest to win our new titles including Big Diamond, Simple Steps to a Life Less Shitty, and the Good Luck Not Dying book!
We’re kind of freaking out right now about getting through the next two months (both financially and emotionally). We didn’t start this fight, but we’re damn sure gonna see it through to the end. Any help, hugs, signal boosts, etc would be much appreciated. We definitely can’t do this alone.
Huge thanks for your ongoing support! 
xoxo, Jessie Duke and Pioneers Press

Please help out these lovely folks and buy something from their store. They could really use it right now.

myhomesicknessabsurd asked: What is your favorite piece of art?

My favorite type of art is installation. I am a really big fan of interactive things, and that is one of the things that draws me to installation art. Most of it is done on such a large scale which forces me to acknowledge my smallness. 

Currently, I want to experience a field of sunflowers, and then these two installations I have seen floating around the internet, one of them being a huge lite-brite wall, the other is called “Woven Light.” 

sleeper-ag3nt asked: propaganda poem? sounds ominous. what kind of propaganda?

The people who contacted me for the piece have called it propaganda, but I wouldn’t classify it as that. Though, I don’t know a better way to say it. The campaign is a call for peace, love, and kindness. It is a positive kind of propaganda.

That sounds like a perfect day

It is the most perfect day I have seen in quite a while. I wish everyone could experience this weekend. I’ve come here each Labor Day weekend for 6 or 7 years now, and it is always such a beautiful time. Today is the calm before the storm as far as the good times go. Soaking in all the peace I can, decompressing from all my busy going here and there over the last few months.

I am out of town, on a farm in the very most southeastern corner of Indiana. As I wait for others to arrive, I am spending the day drafting up a propaganda poem I am being commissioned to write and perform. 

Today is a perfect day to ask questions.
