If you’re poor, the only way you’re likely to injure someone is the old traditional way: artisanal violence, we could call it – by hands, by knife, by club, or maybe modern hands-on violence, by gun or by car.
But if you’re tremendously wealthy, you can practice industrial-scale violence without any manual labor on your own part. You can, say, build a sweatshop factory that will collapse in Bangladesh and kill more people than any hands-on mass murderer ever did, or you can calculate risk and benefit about putting poisons or unsafe machines into the world, as manufacturers do every day. If you’re the leader of a country, you can declare war and kill by the hundreds of thousands or millions. And the nuclear superpowers – the US and Russia – still hold the option of destroying quite a lot of life on Earth.
So do the carbon barons. But when we talk about violence, we almost always talk about violence from below, not above.
Arguably the sound of DCI 2014.
The moment when something from your sideblog ends up on your dash. Ha ha! Well!
If you’re hankering to relive the 2014 DCI season (and all the seasons as far back as …1978, I think) the DCI audio blog I started this summer has shows organised by year, corps, and title.
Posting has slowed down between the season ending and myself starting a full-time job and packing for another move (the fourth one in a year ughh), but I still fill requests and will hopefully have more time to find/listen/edit audio and pictures when settled in!

Launched last month, Wafrica — Africa plus wa for Japan — has unveiled a range of kimono handcrafted in an array of African cotton fabrics that would seem to be a million miles from the subtle silks more commonly associated with traditional Japanese dress. Yet despite the orange comets and flashes of lightning tearing across a moss-green background, and the tribal swirls in colors that recall the sun-drenched African soil, the prints blend seamlessly into the kimono form before they surprise Japanese shoppers with their foreign origin.
The cultural cocktail is the brainchild of Serge Mouangue, a Tokyo-based concept- car designer for Nissan, who joined forces with Kururi, a Tokyo-based kimono- maker, to produce the traditional Japanese attire in 18 African prints sourced in markets from Nigeria to Senegal.

look at this fucked up bird
what the fuck
are those its titties
I desperately want to know what kind of bird this is.
This is a male greater sage-grouse performing its mating strut! The “boobs” are two air sacs on his neck/breast that he inflates while flapping his wings. This produces a weird-ass sound that’s beyond anything you’ve heard before, probably.
They perform their strut displays in leks, which are basically big open singles bars where the dudes hang out in the centre while the ladies mingle and approach any bird they find titillating. One of my former labs had a fembot sage grouse that the field researchers would deploy to observe how males behaved around her.

NICOLE BEHARIE’S FACE
Tulsa, Oklahoma near the original Black Wall Street.
I guess that meme of DaQuan—the one y’all thought was funny—came true mhmmm 😒
- kicked their daughter out (left her at a homeless shelter)
- found out she had left the shelter to live with a guy
- tracked them down at 9 at night to yell at her
- shot her unarmed boyfriend (killing him)
- shot at her after she ran to hide in the bushes
- shot at the bf’s 13 yr old brother (hitting him in the arm)
- fled the scene
- were allowed to turn themselves in
- were put on PAID suspension
Attemptedmurder (and shooting at minors!) only gets paid leave. The more one scratches the surface..
I like can’t even process the amount of racism and violence that has suddenly spiked. Not that it’s not like it was never happening but fucking hell I’m seeing a new story everyday about some child of color getting gunned down like an animal while white guys that shoot up schools and movie theaters get probation because “they where so mentally ill.” I hate the world
This happened earlier this month. Both parents are members of the Tulsa police force.
“Both are held at the Tulsa jail, police chief Chuck Jordan said, but are confined in an area away from other inmates they may have come into contact with on the job.”
Yeah wow that’d be so scary for them.
The article also cites two of the killers’ neighbors who, naturally, call them “wonderful” and praise their parenting. Further down in the article, it says there “were no incident reports” for the victim at the homeless shelter, because that’s totally relevant information.
#i love how terrifying her face is in the second gif #like she’s all flirty #very similar to how she talked to sam that morning #but her demeanor is completely fucking different# like with sam and steve she’s natasha #she’d eat them alive but in the good way #with baddies she’s the black widow #where she will flirt and then murder them #and idk just the flirty greeting and the terrifying grin was such a good connection to her codename #i just #i love this movie so much #natasha (via buckysexual)
that guy is pissing his pants over that smile this kind of fear is what i aspire to inspire
my fav part of gotg was when peter quill told that alien girl “i honestly forgot you were even here.”
it’s like james gunn was talking directly to me, a girl in the audience who was trying to enjoy the media he clearly created for only the boys in the audience.
Is Groot my favourite male GotG character just because he’s the ONLY MEMBER OF THE TEAM who doesn’t throw a sexual comment at Gamora?, the question of 2014
