Poe - “Hey Pretty”

Little trivia: Poe is the sister of Mark Z. Danielewski, writer of House of Leaves. She even named a song on her Haunted  album after the book (which is very good, by the way).

On the left is a paragraph from the New York Times about Mike Brown’s “troubled” teenage years; on the right is a paragraph from Rolling Stone about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one of the Boston Marathon bombers.
What could possibly account for the difference in presentation of these two teenagers?
And let’s remember that one was unarmed when he was shot to death by a police officer who stopped him for walking in the street after allegedly stealing some cigars and pushing a store clerk, while the other was taken alive after allegedly setting off a bomb at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing a police officer, engaging in a shootout with a host of other police officers, and then hiding from a full-scale manhunt.

There’s some line editor up in the Times building right now, pondering whether they did enough editing on this piece.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
UUUUUUGGGGGGHHHHAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGHH

Update: Fuck the media with twelve rusty tetanus-filled screwdrivers

So yeah, the New York Times can be equally as scummy as the other rags sometimes. Fucking unnecessary hatchet job

In response to the GoFundMe Campaign for Darren Wilson, people are asking GoFundMe to close the account due to the fact that it incites hate and obviously violates their terms and conditions

The donors and the comments attached to the campaign are sick and simply racist. They asking for the “Killing of N*****s”, “purging the savages” and to support a “fellow White” individual that has the right to murder Black people.

Pass this around. Report the Darren Wilson page as for the violation

Happy to announce that RTJ2 drops October 28th on Mass Appeal!

Two notes:

1. Has this been on repeat  sporadically on my speakers today? Yes.

2. When this is released in instrumental format will I use it as a ringtone? Yes.

Killer Mike interviewed about Ferguson, his barber shop, and what we need to do to move forward, on CNN.

Killer Mike is ON POINT in this interview. 

If Marvin was alive now, wow…
What would I say to him?
Where could I start?
How could I explain to him?
I know the minor world would probably look strange to him
Would he feel like today had a place for him?
Global imprisonment, sickness, indifference
When he said, “Save the babies,” was we listenin?
When he said, “Mercy, mercy,” did he really know
That decades later we’d still be killin’ folks?

This is a very serious disease* so I gladly accept the “bucket challenge”

*My heart goes out to all those who struggle with ALS but I am, of course, talking about the disease of apathy.  If (and hopefully when) Michael Brown’s killer is brought to justice and convicted of 1st degree murder, it still won’t prevent this from happening again. We cannot accept this as the status quo. We MUST continue the fight at the ballot box, in the media and by working to create systemic change. I’m not naive to the dirty politics (redistricting, voter ID requirements, etc) that will try to prevent us from our goal. But I refuse to give up hope. My “bullet bucket challenge” is not about pointing fingers and it’s not about being angry. Every shell casing in that bucket represents the life of someone who fought and died in the goal for civil rights and human dignity. As a member of law enforcement (yes I really am a reserve sheriff) I will not stand idly by while others violate civil and human rights under the cover of authority and I will insist that other good cops rise to the same standard as well. As a black man I will demand more from myself and my community. I will not allow outsiders to co-opt our struggle in order to commit violence in our name. I’m channeling my outrage into action so I no longer feel powerless. It’s not about black or white. It’s not about rich or poor. It’s about us vs. them. There are more of us — from all races, genders and identities — then there will ever be of them. And we will be victorious.

This is incredibly powerful and I’m glad someone’s done this. I haven’t been a big fan of the whole Ice Bucket thing, although it has put down money so as far as slacktivist bullshit is concerned it’s worked. Still, Jones has pushed it around for a cause that means a bit more to me. 

(Certainly a lot more positive than my intended plan of putting a video of pouring ice over my middle finger holding a sign saying “JUST FUCKING DONATE, IDIOTS.”)
