Copyright Is Copywrong: The Headlines Project

Will Leffert Headlines Project

UPDATE: In another attempt to promote this on Facebook, I got declined for profanity (much like my Muslim Doesn’t Mean Terrorist headline, which was denied due to “hate speech”), even though there is no profanity. — Did you recently buy a new car? I bet you were excited. I bet you even took a picture of it and posted it …

Profiling Is Un-American: The Headlines Project

Will Leffert Headlines Project

You’ve heard the recent news. More about ISIS/ISIL/Daesh. It consumes all forms of media. More hate. More violence. More death. How are we supposed to react? I was asked if I was scared about this headline. I’m not. I believe firmly that truth should be spread, especially at times like these, to combat the fear, uncertainty, and doubt that fuels …

Will Leffert Headlines Project

I thought it might be prudent to give a status update on how The Headlines Project is fairing. We’re 3 headlines in. We started with Publish All Weddings; an exposition on love, and how society (including businesses) refuse to acknowledge it, regardless of its legal status. Publish All Weddings went fairly well, even though it was rushed. I hadn’t planned …

UPDATE: Facebook has deemed this inappropriate, and has rejected my business in promoting it via Facebook ads. So, please share it! If political candidates and major news organizations can promote hate, why can’t I promote love? — A number of deplorable acts have been committed in the name of religion. The Crusades. The Salem Witch Trials. Even slavery had been …

Publish All Weddings: The Headlines Project

Will Leffert Headlines Project

I hadn’t planned on opening my new social activism project today, nor had I planned on starting it like this. I got lucky, however, and obtained the materials necessary a day early, and the issue is important enough locally, that I thought I would start this way. A small Missouri newspaper, the Monroe City Lake Gazette, has refused to publish …

Don Hertzfeldt’s “It’s Such A Beautiful Day”

Will Leffert Personal

Never has a film had such profound impact in my life. Never has a film stirred me so deep in my mind and heart. Never has a film like Don Hertzfeldt’s “It’s Such a Beautiful Day” spoke to me. I woke up this morning to perform a routine. I checked news. I had a smoke. I opened up a can …
