“When the whales at SeaWorld were played a sound recording of a group of whales made at sea, they all stopped moving in their tanks. Then one of them, Corky, began shaking violently. The tape was playing sounds of her family. “I have no idea if this creature shares any feelings that we know as humans, but her reaction reminded me of the times I heard messages from my own family when I was a hostage in Lebanon. I would feel great relief at knowing they were well, but also much sorrow and a sharpened longing to be reunited with them. “What is clear is that Corky could recognize her family’s sounds after years of separation…Knowing only this much I believe it is pointless and cruel to keep these animals apart for commercial reasons - to exploit them for commercial entertainment.” -John McCarthy, journalist
Sea World pisses me off so much. I cannot get over these beautiful, huge creatures kept in tiny tanks and forced to perform for human’s enjoyment. That’s fucked up
So sad. They are so smart and so family oriented and live for so long (in the wild) that it is just so depressing to think of them wasting away doing pointless tricks being away from their loved ones. SeaWorld and all those other places are so evil.

Around the late ’70s is when hip hop culture started in the New York area. The rest of the world took notice as black and latino New Yorkers opened their eyes to a new types of art, knowledge, dance and most importantly- music. Rap music. Music that uses a MC’s rhyming prose over a DJ/producer’s instrumental of samples and beats. So, who better to introduce you to then Junglepussy, Dai Burger, Princess Nokia and Cakes Da Killa? Our four MCs that are making waves in the rap scene with their gritty, sexy and clever lyrics bringing all eyes back to the New York area.
Ah! What a wild day yesterday was. Went from waking up nervous for my job interview to burning rice on my stove by accident to my A S S H O L E cracker neighbors calling the fucking fire department claiming that we were trying to burn the house down and/or kill them (as if I’d ever harm my belongings/myself over a fucking cracker. Puhlease!) to having like 8 firemen plus a few EMTs in my house/milling abt outside to going to a job interview to getting the job almost on the spot!!!!!! (I will be THE research coordinator nurse at the research institute of a mtl hospital!!!!!) to finding out berlin’s brother and wife finally had their baby girl!!! to celebrating at berlin and mine’s fav restaurant to napping to going in for one of my last night shifts. Phew! Putting in my 2 weeks notice at the end of my shift. Goodbye working weekends, goodbye working graveyards, goodbye working holidays and goodbye getting yelled at and disrespected by patients and families! So excited and relieved!!!!
i was practicing some soft makeup/soft femme looks, i dunno. what you think?
SO GORGEOUS! The hair. Winning! The makeup is lovely, perfect lip colour. And those dreamy eyes in the last photo are lovely. You’re so beautiful! Why you so fine…and just finished a Master’s degree? In the words of a wise prophet, Beyoncé, “goddamn, goddamn!” ***Flawless.
Here for this
Our server tonight had hair that resembled cat shit.
she was very upset and came back and gave this giant speech about how “this is austin this is a nonjudgemental city i’m not judging you people do things for very different reasons”
like, gag me with a spoon
You seriously wrote an insult on a server’s tip? Fuck appropriation, but that’s some weak classist bullshit. You can’t even say these words to her face like she’s a person, you gotta write them on the money you owe her and give it to her like you’re doing her a favor. You even could’ve written it on a napkin and put it on top of the money, but you like went through the trouble of making sure she had to carry it around with her. We’re so clever let’s totes post this on tumblr later we sure showed her. Like, i agree that white people need to quit that shit, but this is a really undignified way to treat someone, and I’m kinda horrified that you’d even want to humiliate another person this way. Consider yourself lucky you (maybe) didn’t consume any crusty hippie bodily fluids tonight, cuz in my days as a server, I pissed and spit in drinks for lesser insults.
Wow it must be hard having someone tell you your hair is inappropriate and gross.
I wonder if any other group could rel- oh, wait…right.
…if you have enough time in your day, and apparently plow a field of fucks that allows you to give them away with such casual aplomb and disdain as to actually insult your server by writing your aspersions on the money you leave as a tip… you’re a total wang.
I woulds stomped you out were you sat you worthless scum.
I live in Austin. I have lots of pics of myself on my blog. Come at me. I’d like to see you try.
Lol white people are at it again.
