A quick explanation of the video: I was intrigued with the idea of the danger of entering the world of a painting in Chapter Eight of Hullaba Lulu. So, I played with it by importing a few public domain copies of the Pittura Metafisica paintings of de Chirico and Arnaldo dell’Ira.
I chose “Piazza d’Italia,”by Arnaldo dell’Ira, 1934, as the backdrop and used a script to set it in motion, I prefer to use dynamic backdrops.
The audio is an excerpt from ‘Glad Rag Doll’ as performed in 1929 by the Rose Wood Orchestra.
1. DO NOT respond to this person. Engaging with the bully often only makes matters worse. They feed off their victim’s misery and pain.
2. Make a copy of the message, photo, or video. The best way to do this is to copy the URL of the specific webpage where it’s happening.
3. Contact the website operators by phone, email and any contact submission forms that they have available on their site.
4. File a report with your local police department.
If necessary, file a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3). The IC3 is a partnership between the FBI, the National White Collar Crime Center, and the Bureau.
My personal suggestion is that you let your friends and contacts know what it happening and that you limit your online communication to people who are fully aware of the seriousness of cyber bullies and who will work with you to promote safety.
I also recommend that you keep screen-shots of all abuse email and texts.
In many ways I’m grateful to the bullies I’ve met over the past five years.
They have taught me that I am strong, and that I simply continue to be myself most
people will figure out the con.
Social media is a real asset for those of us who want to find ways to live past
