A bit of a down post  
I don't know why. But today seemed to be a day for stumbling across depressing or disheartening articles.

I'm linking them here, because I think both topics need to be thought of or discussed more.

One is a relatively 'famous' author Marion Zimmer Bradley and a heads up to those that it is a topic that includes child abuse among other things.

The second is a harsh reminder about how fast consumerism and buying and chucking out clothes 'yearly' only based on fashion is ruining our world. Sorry for the downer guys.

~~~

Let's end this post on a lighter note.

I have a movie discount voucher to use in the next 7 days, so I'll likely head to the movies soon.

Anyone have an opinion on what I should watch?

I think I saw that second article on Isobelle Carmody's facebook?

I didn't read it, but agree with the article description. It's the same for throwing out technology because of upgrades (particularly phones). So much waste, especially when there's the option to donate or sell to someone else.

Yeah, it was from her's.

Well, the article further depresses because most of 'donated' doesn't get to people who want or need it. And that a lot of people won't want or need second hand goods.

Yeah I dislike it even more with technology/electronics...

Ah yeah. I've heard that. It's pretty messed up that they throw out so much stuff. Maybe they should start putting a "free" bin of stuff outside the donation places instead.

Same. :|
