—Marie Antoinette (2006)

 Just so everyone is clear, the handsome Black man tutoring Marie Antoinette is Joseph Boulogne, classical musician extraordinaire whose work influenced Mozart’s. This has been your Western music history tidbit of the day. Adieu!

Message for the day

artwork by Sarah Strang

(via wethinkwedream)

there’s always this moment, this moment that is right now. where i feel relieved and excused by pain and i am empty but it doesn’t overcome me. but it is brief. and when it all comes back, it swells. pushes right through my toes and floods my mouth and i am whole again. full of a misery that is a force of vengeance. and i don’t understand why, i don’t understand.

why must my soul be so broken?

i didn’t mean for any of this. i didn’t mean to be alive. and yet, here i am, forced to cope with this life. i am so uncomfortably human.



Failed panoramic.

failed my ass that looks sick as fuck

Black Swan (2010)

"Gaza was bombarded with 273 airstrikes yesterday (8th July). That’s an average of 11 an hour. Gaza is about 25 miles long and 4 miles wide, with a population of 1.7 million crammed into that tiny space. It is under Israeli occupation and Israeli siege. Hospitals estimate they will run out of resources to treat the wounded in about two days. Electricity is intermittent. Gaza has no army, air force or navy. Israel is the fourth largest military power in the world. Resistance to occupation is allowed under international law. Israel’s occupation, siege and collective punishment of Gaza is not."
