  7. I got it in my mind a long time ago that the poem lasts a lot longer than I do and so who gives a fuck about me. That the poem very well could do things that I couldn’t do. That the feeling I feel when I read poems is way better than any experience that I had had with a human being

  10. Seriously, we need to remember that the vast majority of words spoken by women — on television, in film, in plays — are actually men’s words. Let’s work on fixing that.

  11. Organization: arrangement of objects in a manner that justifies having purchased them


  12. Any man, at any time, can give up being “progressive” and find someone cute who will enter into a legal union with him and think it

    Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run.  Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph.  The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp. 

    On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture.  I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive.  But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency.  Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up. 

    Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case.  *Edit*  This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police.  Please advise, it is highly disturbing. 

    And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.

    Here’s who comes up in Vanity Fair’s search of people the New York Times has called “no angel”:

    • Al Capone, white mobster
    • James “Whitey” Bulger, white convicted murderer
    • Donald Manuel Paradis, white motorcycle gangster on death row
    • Erwin Rommel, Nazi field marshal
    • Clayton Lockett, white convicted murderer and rapist
    • Larry Flint, white pornographer
    • Eric Harris, white Columbine serial killer

    Who else does the Times label “no angel”?

    • Samuel Spencer, Black victim of murder by four white men
    • Magic Johnson, Black basketball player
    • Michael Jackson, Black musician

    Yeah. You do the math.
