Oh god!

George W. Bush’s decision to mark the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina with a celebratory speech in New Orleans has raised a lot of questions. One of those questions is, “what the shit happened to his hair?”

actualmodel:

One of my neighbours slipped this under my door while I was practising, I thought they were going to make a noise complaint but they just had a request. I played it with my windows open and I heard really loud clapping come from a balcony a few stories up which was super lovely. I’m in such a lovely mood now it’s so nice to be appreciated.

I LOVE listening to my neighbours play!! When I hear music going on that I like, I’ll turn off my own music and open the windows and door.

Toaster Strudel

Every time I wrote fiction, my step mother would find a way to read it and psychoanalyze it. I password protected my writing, she made an IT guy from work come over and break in to my computer. Ever since, she's been my critic in the back of my mind telling me not to bother writing anything. So I totally empathize.



“I’m trying to be an artist, but my parents just don’t understand. I showed a painting to my mom, and I was like: ‘Do you like it?’
And she was like: ‘I guess, but why is there a cigarette? Are you smoking now?’
And I was like: ‘No, Mom. The cigarette represents pain.’
And she was like: ‘Did we not love you enough?’”

3,000 Upstaters Want to Commit Economic Suicide by Seceding From New York

by Andy Cush

That attractive graphic up there represents a plan put forth by a group of liberty lovers who’d like to see New York state split into two “autonomous regions”: New York, below, composed of the city plus Long Island and Westchester and Rockland Counties, and New Amsterdam, above, composed of everything else. If that sounds appealing to you, you can attend their rally on Sunday.

PERSONALS FROM THE PAST! These are from the Daily Mail, 4th of May 1896…

BESSIE - darling. - Mother wishes you many happy returns of the day. You said, to avoid all reproachful letters, you would keep your whereabouts unknown for the time. Is the time not yet ended? There shall be no reproachful letters; but for Heaven’s sake let me hear of or from you. There is no need, dear, of all this secrecy, unless a stronger will than your own is at work to keep you silent. Even if this is so, don’t keep me longer without a word. It is so hard, my darling.

TO OAK - Oh, why have you left me for so long? This suspense is killing me. When you took me to the circus you swore you would never leave me. Think how you are keeping that promise! If you do not come back to me soon I fear I shall be tempted into accepting one of the offers of marriage I am receiving almost daily - Ivy.

UNCLE JIM - Come home at once. All is forgiven. Bring the pawntickets with you. - Niece.

WILL the gentleman who took away by mistake the Brown Pony standing outside the Star and Garter, on City and Suburban day, kindly send to the same place for the trap, or return pony? One is no use without the other.

OH BUT WAIT these were in the paper on the 5th. SURPRISE Oak is a dick! BUT WHERE IS UNCLE JIM???

"ABUSIVE MEN COME in every personality type, arise from good childhoods and bad ones, are macho men..."

“ABUSIVE MEN COME in every personality type, arise from good childhoods and bad ones, are macho men or gentle, “liberated” men. No psychological test can distinguish an abusive man from a respectful one. Abusiveness is not a product of a man’s emotional injuries or of deficits in his skills. In reality, abuse springs from a man’s early cultural training, his key male role models, and his peer influences. In other words, abuse is a problem of values, not of psychology.”

phoebe-tonkin:

During the filming of Gone with the Wind, Vivien Leigh was in make-up at seven in the morning and often stayed until midnight. Ann Rutherford, who played Scarlett’s sister Carreen, said of Leigh’s dedication: “She burned herself, she was such a hard worker. We watched her lose weight. In a break she’d take her costume off and the wardrobe girls would put more seams in what once had been a tightly fitted dress.”

Palestinian artist booted from Banksy’s Dismaland for anti-Israel protest

Palestinian artist booted from Banksy’s Dismaland for anti-Israel protest:

THE IRONY LEVELS ON THIS. 

HAHAHAHA 

So what was all that shit in Palestine banksy?

oh my god 

artist Shadi Alzaqzouq: “I found out when arrived at the show that three Israeli artists were taking part, one of whom served in the IDF. I got upset that I hadn’t been informed and tried to complain to the organisers. I was told someone would meet with me but after over an hour of waiting no one came to meet with me,” .

“I decided I had to protest in some way so I went and got a bed sheet from my hotel room and wrote ‘R.I.P Gaza: Boycott Israel’ on it in coal and hung it over my artwork and laid down like a corpse in front of my two paintings on display,”

After half an hour security guards approached Zaqzouq to inquire about what was going on, who then called Holly Cushing - believed to be Banksy’s manager.

After explaining to Cushing the reason for his protest, she told him it was too “ugly” for the dark show and that an American art collector was going to buy his art - and that America and Israel were one and the same, according to Zaqzouq.

Cushing then claimed that Banksy wanted the Palestinian artist’s work to be taken down from display.
