yosoyunamalditadama said: There's a guy in downtown LA who yells "Get your racist ass away from me" at everybody who passes by. Most people think he's crazy but I think he might be on to something.


Yeah, he sounds like he’s 100% correct.

she’s still dying on facebook

this atlantic piece is beautiful and sad and perfect. 

I stayed until the appointment was over, nodding when it seemed appropriate to nod and methodically moving down my list of questions. I didn’t burst into tears. I didn’t run sobbing from the room. But with that text, my world split in two. In the first world, the real world, a doctor was talking, I was a busy New Yorker paying a crapload for an appointment I’d missed work to attend, and there was no place for what had just been communicated to me, quite literally by a tangle of wires and signals whose mechanisms I couldn’t fathom but that somehow extended all the way into my deepest past, all the way to the second world, where the things I loved most were stored. When my appointment was over, I think I said, “thank you.” I don’t remember leaving. The next thing I remember is wandering through midtown, crying so hard I couldn’t see, as Mari, the friend behind the text, explained that Lea was dead, that the funeral was days away, that I needed to come home.

The Litographs Tattoos Kickstarter campaign has taken a novel (GET IT?) approach to encouraging contributions: The first 2,500 backers will also reserve their place in the world’s longest (temporary) tattoo chain.

Litographs has broken up Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland into 2,500 temporary tats. Once they hit their goal, they’ll send the ink out for backers to apply, photograph and upload to their website. “Our goal,” they say, “is to recreate this iconic novel by showcasing every single word on the skin of 2,500 Kickstarter backers.” Which, OK, sounds a little gross — but I’m intrigued!

Now more than ever do I realize that I will never be content with a sedentary life, that I will always be haunted by thoughts of a sun-drenched elsewhere.

If these font sizes don’t speak to the relative value of Palestinian life, I don’t know what does.

In addition to the font size, its also the language surrounding the deaths.

Not only do we know of the two Israelis, but also their occupation (they were soldiers sent to kill) and where they were killed.

Over 300 Palestinians are just referred to as deaths. Anything that was once alive could die. Animals, foliage, etc. They couldn’t even say Palestinians. Even acknowledging the identity of the colonized and allotting them basic humanity is too provocative. No location, no root of cause (because then it’d have to be understood that Israeli aggression is indeed at fault). Just 330 deaths. It all exists in a detached vacuum.

But it does refer back to Hamas. No matter what happens to Palestinians, its implicitly suggested that Hamas is to blame. Everything Israel does is reactionary under the normalization of Zionist brutality. To someone who doesn’t understand the nature of Israeli settler colonialist violence, this could very well be understood as Hamas killing Palestinians. The only mention of Israel is through a victim narrative.

Bill Sienkiewicz 1990: Friendly Dictators trading cards

Sienkiewicz’s work on Brought to Light clearly made him a prime candidate to illustrate the Friendly Dictators trading cards. Like Brought to Light, it was published by Eclipse Enterprises and sought to use pop culture media to call attention to the American government’s and/or business’s cozy relationships with brutal regimes. The “cancelled” stamp element (also used in Brought to Light) refers to autocrats who eventually fell out of favor.

Seeing all these cards side-by-side, you can get a sense of the kind of artistic diversity-within-consistency Sienkiewicz is capable of.

These cards are out of print, but if you want to read the about America’s relationship with each of these dictators (maybe like me, you’re thinking Hitler? Really?), a bunch of websites like this one have transcribed these cards and recounts the details of each relationship.
