i know there’s a lot going on right now but let’s please not forget that the steubenville rapist went free this week and is back on his high school’s varsity football team


This one slipped under the radar.

Nigel Farage, who has the fifth lowest attendance in the entire European Parliament, has announced he’s running in the General Election. I kind of hope he wins. De facto anarchism.

Metal fandorks crying about Rihanna wearing a Judas Priest top:

1) Rihanna personally chose Extreme’s Nuno Bettencourt to be her touring guitarist, and he was even giving her guitar lessons on the road, so she must at least know a fair bit about rock.
2) Judas Priest are hardly some obscure band you have to be WAY INTO TEH METULZ to have heard of.
3) Assuming that an attractive, female, black R&B singer could not possibly be into them based on zero evidence, and despite points 1 and 2, says all kinds of awful things about you.

the onion is being way too real rn

It was always going to be bigger than one cop and one boy, though. They’re not about to risk setting a precedent for murdering cops being held responsible.

"Years ago I learned a very cool thing about Robin Williams, and I couldn’t watch a movie of his afterward without thinking of it. I never actually booked Robin Williams for an event, but I came close enough that his office sent over his rider. For those outside of the entertainment industry, a rider lists out an artist’s specific personal and technical needs for hosting them for an event, anything from bottled water and their green room to sound and lighting requirements. You can learn a lot about a person from their rider. This is where rocks bands list their requirement for green M&Ms (which is actually a surprisingly smart thing to do). This is also where a famous environmentalist requires a large gas-guzzling private jet to fly to the event city, but then requires an electric or hybrid car to take said environmentalist to the event venue when in view of the public.
When I got Robin Williams’ rider, I was very surprised by what I found. He actually had a requirement that for every single event or film he did, the company hiring him also had to hire a certain number of homeless people and put them to work. I never watched a Robin Williams movie the same way after that. I’m sure that on his own time and with his own money, he was working with these people in need, but he’d also decided to use his clout as an entertainer to make sure that production companies and event planners also learned the value of giving people a chance to work their way back. I wonder how many production companies continued the practice into their next non-Robin Williams project, as well as how many people got a chance at a job and the pride of earning an income, even temporarily, from his actions. He was a great multiplier of his impact. Let’s hope that impact lives on without him. Thanks, Robin Williams- not just for laughs, but also for a cool example."

This is incredibly cool. I really hope this helped some people get off the streets and in permanent employment.

Incidentally, if you’re wondering about the green M&Ms thing; it’s used to gauge whether the event organiser has actually read the rider and how far they’re willing to go to keep their stars happy. It is actually pretty useful.

I'll Be Seeing You
Françoise Hardy & Iggy Pop
Triple Best of Françoise Hardy

Francoise Hardy with Iggy Pop, covering the standard I’ll Be Seeing You 

In that small cafe
The park across the way
The children’s carousel,
The chestnut tree,
The wishing well
I’ll be seeing you

I’ll be better when I can listen to that song without you
I’ll be better when I can finally bring myself to delete that first email you sent, so many years ago
I’ll be better when the thought of kissing or sleeping with someone else doesn’t give me vertigo
I’ll be better when every aspect of my life doesn’t revolve around your absence
I’ll be better when I stop making lists about how and when I will be better and can just let it happen.

None of these things is immediately forthcoming.

It came up on shuffle, and I didn’t skip it. I’ll never let it be ‘our song’ with anyone else, but maybe now it won’t be ours any more. Small victories.

Civil Rights Movement vs Ferguson Protests

As fucked up as the situation in Ferguson is, seeing this gives me a little bit of hope. It’s finally happening, and the world can’t ignore it any more.
