You shower me with lullabies
As you’re walkin’ away
Reminds me that it’s killin’ time
On this fateful day.
See you at the bitter end
They sawed his head off with a tiny knife. They’re fucking barbaric. The militant group ISIS “has no place in the 21st century” according to Obama…well no shit. Now can we actually do something about it? RIP James Foley. #ISIS #IslamicStateOfIraqAndSyria #RIPJamesFoley #Journalist #Syria #RemberingJames
A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s wanting to take photos with the statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society. Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.
Here are some observations by one of the artists involved in the event:
I don’t know who any of these folks are.
They were tourists I presume.
But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.
"Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."
There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.
The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”
One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.
There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”
"One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’
I’m just gonna keep reblogging this because this is truly how white America works. Like people have their weddings on plantations, Blackface was and still is a major source of entertainment and the biggest movie of all time was Gone With the Wind. White America will kill Black people and then smile and laugh and enjoy their day it sickens me that we’re treated this way.
It’s both alarming and fucking appalling how alive racism still is in America today.
Women who hate on feminists hurt all women
Dispelling some common myths.
Indeed. I feel as though the people who comprise the ”Women Against Feminism” movement are grossly misinformed. Some of the things many of them have written would lead one to believe they are all a bunch of ignorant teenagers impulsively jumping on the next trend.
Who knew such a tiny measure could be so difficult to play? I can’t get the pattern down to save my life :( #CONFUSING #Beethoven #MoonlightSonata #FirstMovement #Measure #LastPage #AlmostDone #Piano #Keyboard #MyFingersHurt

Well Deebo from Friday is here backstage to see The Game… Interesting turn of events. @bagoftrickscat @zonahomegrown @papashock89
you are a horse running alone
and he tries to tame you
compares you to an impossible highway
to a burning house
says you are blinding him
that he could never leave you
want anything but you
you dizzy him, you are unbearable
every woman before or after you
is doused in your name
you fill his mouth
his teeth ache with memory of taste
his body just a long shadow seeking yours
but you are always too intense
frightening in the way you want him
unashamed and sacrificial
he tells you that no man can live up to the one who
lives in your head
and you tried to change didn’t you?
closed your mouth more
tried to be softer
less volatile, less awake
but even when sleeping you could feel
him traveling away from you in his dreams
so what did you want to do love
split his head open?
you can’t make homes out of human beings
someone should have already told you that
and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love.
