Health Fair with Doctor Paul! Gothtober DAY 9

At the stroke of midnight, on October first, 2013, Gothtober launched…. and so did the shut down of the US Government! For Gothtober DAY 9 we have a special reminder and musical presentation brought to you by Dr. Paul (doctor, musician, artist) and animator, Lori D. that Healthcare is a Human Right! 

The Doctor recommends that you visit right away and get started on your health plan, otherwise your taxes will go up, and if a gnarly haunted tree bops you on the head, you won’t be covered! Neither vampire bites or werewolf scratches are covered either!

If you’re in California, you can also visit Covered California!

Other recommendations from Doctor Paul include: 

  • Getting your flu shot
  • Eating low sodium kettle corn
  • Don’t exceed three gobstoppers per day
  • Avoid listening to excessive amounts of news media, it causes anxiety!

Who is Tommy Douglas, you may inquire? A CBC Television show voted Tommy Douglas “The Greatest Canadian” based on a viewer-supported survey! The leader of the Saskatchewan CCF elected 1942, The Honorable Douglas built a program to offer free hospital care to all citizens—the first in Canada. Doctor Paul hails from Canada, and suffice it to say, is a huge supporter of health care for all, and so is Gothtober! While we don’t have socialized medicine in the good ol’ US of A, Obamacare is a good start! The US needs affordable health care, we voted on it, it’s time! Let’s all pitch in and take care of each other.

And who is Lori D? Only one of the coolest animators we know! She lives up in Portland, OR.  Check out her work, glad to have you aboard, Lori D! 

You should check out this wonderful piece she did for Yo Gabba Gabba featuring Paco’s Listen. 

Gothtober Has Ordered its Trick or Treat for Unicef Boxes!

Okay! Gothtober applications are over, Gothtober artists have been chosen (to be revealed to the public soon enough) and while the Gothtober artists toil away, we prepare for another tradition: Trick or Treat for Unicef! My Grandma Bautista would take part in raising money for the United Nations Childrens Fund, and as a kid, I thought that was really cool. I liked being a kid who could help other kids around the world. Here is an awesome PSA from Elizabeth Montgomery (of Bewitched) from 1969, asking you to Trick or Treat for Unicef, but the address on it isn’t correct, so don’t use that if you want more info, go here instead.
