Nirvana & guests @ Saint Vitus Bar, Brooklyn

Let’s say picture B + picture A equated a beautiful moment that probably doesn’t exist, but it’s late so I can make up stories such as these (just know that obviously the two don’t connect.)

Doesn’t Carrie Brownstein look likes she wants to jump St Vincent? like whoa. 

On a serious note—some damn great pictures with some awesome peeps.

If you loved:

Maybe you should try one of these!


I’ve read a majority of these, I highly recommend Matched, The Uglies Series, Heir Apparent and all the classics (but especially Brave New World).

The Host is actually really good but INCREDIBLY slow to start, and it’s not awful in terms of characters like Twilight.

These might be more specifically cyberpunk than dystopian, but, You might also consider the Burning Chrome anthology from William Gibson, or a fair bit of the work of Philip K. Dick, particularly Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep and A Scanner Darkly. The Man in the High Castle might be closer to Dystopian.

As a university tutor in my hometown, a city which is roughly 40% black and 37% white, I still had students asking me, “Do they just never learn how to talk right?” I pull up a chair when this happens, “Listen up, gang.” So what do I tell them? Well, the goal is to convey that, scientifically speaking, non-standard varieties of English such as the English spoken by Rachel Jeantel and the ‘proper English’ they’ve been taught are equally communicative. I go over the differences and point out that both have a rule system that must be followed to speak convincingly.

But then, I don’t see why there should need to be that justification. So I end up trying to teach respect. If they have a student that speaks a non-standard variety of English, they need to understand that that student is therefore competent in understanding at least two versions of English: the version they speak at home and other safe environments, and the one forced upon them when listening to you. Respect that.

The alarmingly pervasive idea that standard English equates to ‘good grammar’ and non-standard English equates to ‘bad grammar’ is false and exclusionary. When it’s used in conjunction with intelligence and credibility of a young black woman, it’s reminiscent of the faulty scientific racism of “The Bell Curve.” But language shaming is currently acceptable behavior in the status quo. It is one of the last bastions of unabashed racism and classism.

i recently just realized in the past few months, i prefer not to be called transgendered anymore,

yes, i was born as a female, and i have always felt more masculine than feminine, and i identify as male. but overall,

i am ME-gendered.

in other words i embrace masculinity when i feel masculine,…

do you ever cry because you’ve somehow managed to gain a truly fucking amazing person as your friend? and just think about how fucking blessed you are for their existence and how in some previous life you must have done something fucking amazing to deserve them in this life? DO YOU?
