Donatan & Cleo - My Słowianie - We Are Slavic (Poland) 2014 Eurovision Song Contest

Can we admire this for a moment, how they managed to fluently merge folklore, sexy and pop music? (original Polish version is better, tho - can listen to it here)

This is the perfect entry for Eurovision. You needed this in your lives. You just didn’t know it yet.

My song obsession lately. Explicit. But if you need a reminder that you are a strong bad bitch, go for it!

I have an ego for the first time in my life and it’s great!

i love sir patrick stewart more with each passing day.

See, guys. This is how you do it. Notice the words “Not all men are like that” are never spoken.

He knows men are like that

his father was like that to his mother

he has experienced the pain firsthand, of what it’s like when men are like that

and he never wants men to be like that again and he fights tooth and nail against the men who are still like that

And moreover, he acknowledges his privilege [as an older white male who is famous/well known] and uses it to speak up. He knows what he is, and he never has to say he’s not like those men he fights against—he never says it, his actions speak loud enough for everyone else to see it. 

Sir Patrick Stewart, everyone.

While not alone, there is a movement to change New Zealand’s flag - ostensibly, to one that looks less like its large neighbor and maybe doesn’t include such a bold reference to its colonial past. Prime Minister John Key has promised a referendum on the flag.
Do you know which is the current flag in this picture? Which one do you like?
My top three are Row1right, Row3left, Row3centre

Always thought that NZ and Australia’s flags were too close to each other in color and style. I like all of those except for the last one.…not that I get a vote. I just like flags.

I’m sorry for not being around. I just haven’t been feeling tumblr for awhile.

Honestly, I’m really burnt out on it. It’s been four years since I’ve been on here, and to be blunt, I don’t like how it’s evolved in that time. It used to be a great place for feminism and talking about what was wrong with the world. Now, honestly, there’s a trace of that left, but I feel like it’s become a hotbed for extremists, or a huge echoing chamber. I used to have some killer discussions here, but now, it feels like there’s no room to agree or disagree—it’s this way, or leave. I’ve mostly relocated to reddit, tbh. While there are huge swatches of problematic things there, I’ve been occupying my time in trying to make a corner of it a safer place, and also getting more grey hair by trying to change a few minds. And it just feels like I’m getting something accomplished more than just yelling the same opinions over and over. Y’all know what I’m about. 

I’m still going to be around, but I’m probably going to end up changing the shift of this blog if I ever return to full time blogging. On top of my feelings about the site, I’ve been trying to get into a doctorate program, have returned to full time graduate school, and have been discovering life outside the computer. I’ve had an honest to blog Internet addiction since I was 12—that is half of my life. It’s been wonderful breaking it. Plus after the aftermath of leaving an abusive relationship/dealing with the aftermath of that, it’s been honestly hard to maintain an online presence in the one place where The Asshole can still keep tabs on me. 

If I know you in real life: I am never too busy for y’all. Please feel free to hit me up anywhere if you need me.

David Bowie - Love Will Tear Us Apart

A chance meeting in 1983 had David Bowie, Bernard Sumner and Peter Hook chatting away over beers in the Kings Arms in Salford. “…So we were all there just having a laugh and we joked that he should come n have a jam with us, then next minute - well, it was the next day actually, but i didn’t expect he’d definitely come by - and we were in the practice rooms and we were playing Love Will Tear Us Apart and I was like, f%$k we’re playing Love Will Tear Us Apart with David Bowie singing, this is crazy. We never released it - Bowie took a recording of it, and just layered some more vocals on for fun, sent it back to me…”

FUCK

"…Computer, erase that entire personal log"

[DS9 Season 6, In the Pale Moonlight]

I recently rewatched this episode (honestly, “In the Pale Moonlight” would be AWESOME in a political science classroom setting), and honestly, it reminded me of Oppenheimer quoting the Bhagavad Gita in regards to the bombings in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In a strange way, it’s creepily parallel.

  • Capitalists: Capitalism is the best system because it works by the laws of nature. Darwin! Natural selection! Only the strong survive!
  • Kropotkin: Actually, Darwin pointed out that in numberless animal societies, the struggle between separate individuals for the means of existence disappears, that struggle is replaced by co-operation and how that substitution results in the development of intellectual and moral faculties which secure to the species the best conditions for survival.
  • Capitalists: No
  • Darwin: Yes
