shepherdsongs:

I was driving past a business here in the Houston Heights, when I glimpsed this painted on the side of the building. I recognized that iconic WWII poster before I realized it was not just any woman, but 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was attacked for wanting an education. The words next to her are her quote, ( “I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school.) All I want is education. And I’m afraid of no one.”

panic/anxiety attack

jaspinder:

  • breath in for 4 seconds
  • hold your breath for 7 seconds
  • exhale breath for 8 seconds

repeat once or twice more.

This causes an autonomic nervous system shift from a sympathetic (fight or flight reaction) state to a parasympathetic response.

Use this for panic/anxiety attacks, exams, presentations.

i want a word for the almost-home.

that point where the highway’s monotony becomes familiar
that subway stop whose name will always wake you from day’s-end dozing
that first glimpse of the skyline
that you never loved until you left it behind.

what do you call the exit sign you see even in your dreams?
is there a name for the airport terminal you come back to,
comfortably exhausted?

i need a word for rounding your corner onto your street,
for seeing your city on the horizon,
for flying homewards down your highway.

give me a word for the boundary
between the world you went to see
and the small one you call your own.

i want a word for the moment you know
you’re almost home.

hannigraham:

Hey everyone! I’m sure you remember this lovely post suggesting fantastic movies of queer ladies. And I thought that I might be of help, and give you links to those movies with some lovely lesbian romance.

To see the summaries of the films, check the post that gave me the idea. They make good summaries, and make them funny too. :)

Pop-Ups: Promise a Decent Bagel? D.C. Will Show Up in Droves

by Missy Frederick

[Photos: R. Lopez]

D.C., admittedly, is kind of a Decent Bagel Desert. Cork Market got firsthand evidence of this fact when it decide to launch a pop-up event this weekend with start-up venture Bullfrog Bagels.

Bullfrog Bagels is from Jeremiah Cohen, a former general manager at Tabard Inn. He's selling bagels and bialys at the market all weekend and demand has been pretty intense. The restaurant received 1,000 preorders and Cohen and his team made an additional 200 bagels this morning. They're hoping to get 400 extras made for tomorrow.

The event has been so successful already that they're extending it to next weekend, June 6-8. Customers can preorder bagels through Cork's email or by calling the restaurant at 202-265-2674. Eater photographer Rey Lopez was on the scene picking up some bagels himself and captured the madness.

‘12 SHOES for 12 LOVERS‘ by Sebastian Errazuriz
Melissa Pop Up Shop

12 Shoes For 12 Lovers re-imagines his ex-lovers as high-heeled shoes.

The pieces reflects on the recollection of the artist’s personal and sexual relationships with former lovers, each of whom became the influence for a series of shoe sculptures. 

Each day, Errazuriz released one image of a new heeled design, completed by an accompanying photo of the footwear’s muse and a small, often explicit story about the duo’s escapades together.

’12 shoes for 12 shoes’ will exhibit at the pop-up shop of Brazilian shoe brand Melissa from December 6th, 2013 to January 6th, 2014 for Art Basel Miami Beach 2013.

Sophomore – Riot in DC April 1968 by deafrr

“Dear PoPville,

Whoa! A good video shot by a Gallaudet university student during the 1968 riots. The video shows fire and smoke on H Street seen from Gallaudet university. During the riots the US army came onto Gallaudet’s campus to protect students.”
