“I’ve just had a baby, I’ve just been appointed [to replace Hillary Clinton in the Senate], I have a lot to learn, so much on my plate, and this man basically says to me, ‘You’re too fat to be elected statewide.’ At that moment, if I could have just disappeared, I would have. If I could have just melted in tears, I would have. But I had to just sit there and talk to him … I didn’t hear a word he said, but I wasn’t in a place where I could tell him to go fuck himself.”

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand to her misogynistic colleagues in Congress  (via micdotcom)

UGH. CIVILITY AND NICETIES. Those farts need to retire and fade off the face of the earth already. I hope the earth accepts and decomposes their toxic, bigoted flesh and bones. There are not enough women in Congress. There are not enough black people in Congress. There are not enough brown people in Congress. The people who represent me don’t represent me and they sure as hell don’t represent so, so many other people.

September 1, 2014 - Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapilla)
Found in forests of the eastern United States and Canada during the summer, these birds winter in Central America and the Caribbean. They eat insects and other invertebrates, picking them from leaf litter, trees, and the air. Their song is very loud and sounds like “tea-cher” repeated four to six times per second. Males in neighboring territories will sing together, rarely overlapping their songs. Females build dome-shaped nests on the forest floor. The bird’s common name refers to the nest’s oven-like shape.

This is Phil Fish - A case study in internet celebrity.

An excellent watch/listen. The Nickelback analogy was perfect.

This Chuck-will’s-widow was rescued this evening on Big Coppitt Key with a wing injury that has been set and wrapped. Outlook is very good for recovery and release. The Chuck-will ‘s-widow hunts actively at night by flying low over the ground in search of insects. Occasionally, small birds and bats are included in its diet. We include the Richard Nilson illustration of the large scooping mouth without stressing our patient to show one of the unique birds interesting features.

Nighthawks are SO COOL. If I ever get one tattooed it’s going to have to be huge to accommodate all that detail.

Urban Outfitters Features “Vintage” Red-Stained Kent State Sweatshirt
Urban Outfitters: Come For The Bloody Kent State Gear, Stay For Master Class In Terrible Apologies
At first glance, one could argue that this came out of a massively misguided attempt to capitalize the youth culture zeitgeist of the moment (which every savvy youth fashion line must do in order to stay ahead of trends)—-kent state is very relevant now as today’s youth grow up under the heel of a militarized police force. OBVIOUSLY UO completely failed to draw that parallel in a way that isn’t just utterly fucking horrifying. But I can’t ignore the bigger picture here. The victims of the Kent State Massacre were liberal hippies and the core consumer base of UO are liberal hipsters—-even if one can make an argument that hipsters aren’t exact parallels of hippies, UO has spent a lot of time and effort to sell the boho racist hippie aesthetic to hipsters (ponchos, war bonnets, crystals and “vintage” everything). Now consider that the founder of UO poured $13,000 dollars into Rick Santorum’s election campaign, and has demonstrated his personal views and business practices align strongly with the GOP—-the racist, misogynist, classist party that to my mind has everything to gain from an event where police mow down liberal youth with high powered military grade assault rifles. So when UO tries to sell me a bloodied Kent State sweatshirt, all I hear is “pay us to clothe you in the violent oppression we will use your money to engineer.” Tl;dr: PAY US TO KILL YOU

I do not buy from Urbn (and more) because of these (and more). 
(I’m disappointed to have missed you at SPX btw. Seed looks awesome and of course I’m very much looking forward to Mother.)

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson
