ALS Friedman Conference: Photos!

I had an absolute blast this year at the 7th Australian Libertarian Society Friedman Conference, co-hosted by the World Taxpayers Associations and the Australian Taxpayers’ Alliance. I participated in two panels – one on the Drug War and another on Agorism. I also moderated a panel on the utilization of Social Media. Video of these panels will eventually be posted.

Besides the speeches, however, my focus was on capturing the attendees and moments of the conference. In 2017, I attended ALSFC with Judd Weiss, and we both spoke and photographed the event (the 2017 album can be found here). This year, Judd was busy with our company (Lit.Club), and so I came out solo.

Not only was the conference a blast (with daytime speeches, cocktail receptions in the evenings, a banquet, a yacht cruise in Sydney Harbor…) but there was also a bonus day the Monday after the conference where we got to do a Wildlife Walkabout and meet Koalas and Kangaroos as well as visit several wineries for wine tasting!

Every Child Wanted, Every Parent Willing

I wrote a post on Facebook recently that I realized I meant to include here as well.

To be very clear:

I want every child to be wanted and loved.

I want people to not get pregnant unless they want to be.

I want birth control education and access to be prevalent.

I want people to enjoy healthy sex lives without unwanted pregnancy.

I want people to be careful with their birth control, and use Plan B if they think there’s a problem.

I want people to utilize pregnancy tests as soon as their periods are late, and know how to tell when there might be a problem.

LPNH Convention 2019

I had the pleasure of speaking at the banquet dinner of the LPNH Convention in May of this year. This was excellent timing, as the convention was on Saturday and Mother’s Day was on Sunday, so I was able to see my mother and treat her to my ridiculous public speaking style (it involves silly stories about growing up in the movement).

I had a blast, and snapped a few shots of attendees. I took other pictures while in New England and I’m going to make that a second album, but here’s the shots specifically from the convention.

Two of My Birdie Babies Are Looking for a Home!

Update as of June 13th! These two babies have a new home with my friend Sarah! They are happy and doing great!

For record keeping, I’m keeping the original post up.

Here’s the story:

For those who don’t know, in June of 2018 my female cinnamon green cheek conure (GCC) and my male yellow-sided GCC decided to lay some eggs. We got 2 babies from the clutch, and I co-raised them with their parents (so they aren’t exclusively hand-raised babies, their parents were very doting).

Anarchapulco 2019 Photos / Story / Donation Info

This year was my 4th Anarchapulco. It was also my first in which I was a main stage speaker. The previous three Anarchpulcos, I have been one of the official photographers of the event – my photos can be found on my Facebook – 2018, 2017 (on Judd’s Facebook, I was his second shooter), 2016. If you saw my speech, you may have noticed I used photos of Anarchapulco (both from 2017 & 2018) from both Judd and myself (mostly him), as the background images in my presentation.

I love Anarchapulco. Every year has been a blast – lots of fun, good people, good energy, and a little bit of a vacation. I spend at least one day at the beach or the pool, skipping speeches and just enjoying the environment with mojitos and good conversation.
