1. You can tattoo leopard spots on your body.
Or Georgia O’Keefe flowers .. Whatever works.
2. You can go down on a women while she’s on her period.
Uh.. Red wings.. Hello?! What could BE a more ridiculously awesome sort of spot? It’s like a big cow spot! I know we’re Church Of the Blacklite LEOPARD, but a spot is a spot. All spots count. #CowSpotsMatter
3. Spread you art around and be daring with your art!
Leave you spots all around! Give away or hang up you visual art, perform often as possible. Spread the spots you create on paper and show your inner spots. Let them then shine bright. Sing on the street! Sing in the subway!
Especially make art that comments on the things you
4. Speak out about what you believe.
Did that guy just spew some misogynisic bullshit at the open mic you’re at? Tell him what you think. Tell him calmly – maybe he’ll learn.
Don’t be afraid to challenge religious fundamentalists to their face. Ask questions, see where they are coming from, but be sure not to hold back what you feel the truth is.
5. Give love!
In our society apathy can be considered “cool”, but don’t you feel so great when people express their care for you? I know I do! It’s that kindergarten lesson folks- treat other how you want to be treated. Let people know how you feel about them!
Reach out to someone you’d like to be close with, bring them into your circle, be brought into theirs. Expand your community and spread the love. Show the loving spots you’ve got and be ready to get right back the love you put out!
We spoke about speaking about what you believe in, but what about acting in it? Feel strongly about an issue? Take matters into your own hands. Raise funds, get people involved. Our spots work best when many different types of spots are brought together for a common goal.
You can also come see our show! Friday August 7th 2015 10 PM at Music Inn: World Instruments 169 W4th, NY, NY. Find out more at facebook.com/loveyourspots
Any way you can think to show your spots is spotty and fantastical! If you have shown your spots lately and want to submit info about that please do! Or if you have something you think would be a great addition to this list OR if you have writing/ art on the theme of religious commentary please submit to email@example.com
