The Worst of Siri: An ever-growing collection of all the ways she derails my request to “play Sufjan Stevens.”

reactiveprocess:

Fucked…. 

I hope that this image travels the world …“While newspapers and television talk about the lives of celebrities, the chief of the Kayapo tribe received the worst news of his life: Dilma, “The new president of Brazil, has given approval to build a huge hydroelectric plant (the third largest in the world). It is the death sentence for all the people near the river because the dam will flood 400,000 hectares of forest. More than 40,000 Indians will have to find another place to live. The natural habitat destruction, deforestation and the disappearance of many species is a fact.”What moves me in my very bowels , making me ashamed of being part of Western culture, is the reaction of the chief of the Kayapo community when he learned of the decision—his gesture of dignity and helplessness before the advance of capitalist progress, modern predatory civilization that does not respect the differences …But we know that a picture is worth a thousand words, showing the reality of the true price of our bourgeois “quality of life”.

Miles Davis covered in blood after an altercation with police.

"Altercation" sounds so polite, like it was a mutual thing and not one man getting assaulted by the police. Miles got beat up by the police.
The cops assaulted Miles because he was black. He was standing outside Birdland where he just performed and was taking a break. His name was on the marquee. They saw him escort a white female friend from the club into a taxi and then they approached him after as he was taking a smoke break. The cops told him to “move on”. Miles said he was playing at the club and was on break. They weren’t hearing any of that. One cop then punched him in the stomach, while another one cracked him on the head with a nightstick. That’s why he’s covered in blood. He was a victim of police brutality.

Sexism,Patriarchy,Racism and Colonialsm.Full Discourse

Hey Americans did you know that in Denmark you actually get paid for attending high school/collage/university/every education you’d fancy getting. You don’t have to pay for any of it.
That’s right, the state pays you approximately $1000/month TO GET AN EDUCATION!!!
Even if you live at yer moms you’ll still get a fair amount every month!!!!!!
This gives people the opportunity to break the social heritage and therefore creating a wealthier country in the long run.
And that’s how to run a fucking county (which studies by the way show to be the most happy county in the world)

"There is more blood than water flowing here in Gaza."
A German journalist in response to the water supply shortages caused by the incessant airstrikes. (via transparent-flowers)
"There is no war on drugs because you cannot have a war against inanimate objects. There is only war on drug addicts. Which means we are warring on the most abused and vulnerable segments of the population."
"Lay your aching body out before me, I will be the hands that untie the knots in your spine.
Lay your head on my hard-beating chest, I will be the hands that get tangled up and lost in your hair.
Lean your body into me, I will be the hands on the back of your head, pushing your mouth tighter against my own.
Listen to me intently, I will be the hands that trace my poetry across your skin.
Guide me, or let me find my own slow way, I will be the hands that draw ecstasy on your face.
Tell me the stories and secrets of your lowest moments, I will be the hands that erase the memories of heartache from your mind.
Don’t be afraid to need me, I will be the hands that never stop fighting for you.
Reach out to me, I will be the hands that link with yours.
Reach out to me, I will be the hands that hold you close.
Reach out to me, I will be the hands that never let go."
giraffevader - I will be the hands, if you let me (via giraffevader)
