Hello there, Nightmarish Goggle-eyes. Where have you been?
Oh, floating around just behind me! How lovely!
Brenna, did you teach her to make this abomination?
Not sure. Zwei? Is this a moment of mystical paths crossing or some guff?
I have no idea! :D I think I originally got it from someone else I follow, though? but considering I refound it while looking through my tag and saw that I’d used it at highgloss before idk

…every time a discussion of ebooks turns, seemingly inevitably, to “Print is dead, traditional publishing is dead, all smart authors should be bailing to the brave new electronic frontier,” what I hear, however unintentionally, is “Poor people don’t deserve to read.”
Seriously: read this and reblog it to people. It’s important.

Ricard Aoki, probably one of the most militant, active, and inspiring Japanese American activist that has ever walked this earth. Aoki lived most of his life in Oakland, CA. He attended Merritt College for two years before transferring to UC Berkeley. While at Merritt, Aoki met Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, the future founders of the Black Panther Party. Aoki became a member of the Party and although there were several other Asian Americans who were members, Aoki was the only one who became an officer, a Field Marshal. At Berkeley, Aoki was a pioneer of the Asian American Movement and became a member of the Asian American Politcal Alliance (AAPA). Unlike other Asian organizations on campus, AAPA was deeply rooted in the community and had been heavily influenced by notions of Black Power. Aoki and several other AAPA members developed the notion of Yellow Power, which included self-determination, a third world consciousness, Asian American panethnicity, and the importance of “Serve the People” programs. AAPA’s influence and legacy extended beyond the Berkeley campus as they outreached and provided social services for various Asian American communities.
Aoki was also very vocal and active in the Third World Liberation Front (TWLF) and the strike for ethnic studies. He and several other students of color demanded for the establishment of Ethnic Studies, African American Studies, Asian American Studies, Chicano Studies, and Native American Studies courses at the university level. They fought for an education that would educate them on their hystories, identities, and enable them to bring that knowledge back to their communities.
After the strike and completing his education at UC Berkeley, Aoki returned to Merrit and became a teacher, counselor, and administrator. He was able to educate and inspire so many individuals as he taught his students the very lessons he learned as an activist. Aoki was active in the Black Panther Party until its demise and afterward, he still remained politically active. He returned to UC Berkeley several times, most significantly in 1999 in order to support the student strike for the Ethnic Studies Department, which was in danger of being cut. Aoki shared his stories, his experiences, and his personal philosophy, inspiring so many students to become activists and educating Asian Americans about their identities and hystories. Aoki will always be a prominent and influential figure for Asian American activists. He wasn’t a model minority. He defied the system. And he initiated change.
DIED A LITTLE BIT
A LOT A BIT

I discovered this guy while reading about another composer.
Le Chevalier de Saint-Georges (1745-1799), Paris, France
Born on Christmas Day, 1945, in the French-Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, to a Senegalese slave and a French colonialist, Le Chevalier de Saint-Georges rose to the top of French society through his mastery of fencing and his genius for classical music! During the French Revolution, he was Colonel of a legion of Black volunteers, and fought heroically. Often referred to as the “Black Mozart.”
GASP! Are you serious?!?!
They never put interesting things in history books. 0_o -ponders-
When you watch Torchwood there is a warning at the very beginning that some scenes may offend or disturb people, so if you allow your children to sit and watch it with you that’s your responsibility, it’s not ours anymore. We kissed, we held each other, we lay on top of each other in bed… and there were lots of complaints about that. Nobody complained that I was shot in the head four times, there were burning people in ovens, that I was stabbed by a mob of 50 people hundreds of times, and I was hanging dripping my blood in a pit. So that’s what confuses me, because you’re not complaining about gay sex, you’re complaining about two men kissing. And it’s 2011. And people say, “Well why should we have that on television?” Because the BBC have to represent the greater public — and there are gay people out there who pay their television license. For people to complain, that’s your prerogative — but you know what, none of them turned it off! They were just embarrassed because it put them in a position where they had to explain things to their kids or their family which probably should have been explained a long time ago.
