"Films today show only a dream world and have lost touch with the way people really are… In this country, people die at 21. They die emotionally at 21, maybe younger… My responsibility as an artist is to help people get past 21… The films are a roadmap through emotional and intellectual terrain that provides a solution on how to save pain."
John Cassavetes (via man-of-prose)

A summer of Disneybounds.

"You realize that everything the police are doing in Ferguson is carefully calculated, right? They’re purposely turning peaceful protests into riots. They’re purposely committing violence to incite violence. From saying ‘We won’t be answering 911 calls,’ which is a very clever way to set themselves up to be able to say, ‘We were afraid for our safety - any call could really be an ambush, our lives were in danger’ right down to the camouflage and the military tanks and wearing more body armor than a soldier in a war zone. Its exactly why they’re going for a media blackout - yet allowing certain photos through - they WANT you to see their tanks. They want you to see their riot gear. They WANT you to see a war-zone. They’re trying to sell the world the idea that this community is inherently and constantly a source of violence and turmoil - they want you to think that they [the police] are being attacked daily in a place so vicious they need full body armor. You know why? Because then, at the end of the day, you might just be able to believe the story they’re going to spin. They’re going to tell you that this (white) officer goes to work in this war zone every day - that he spends every working moment in constant fear for his life. They’re going to tell you that Michael Brown attacked this officer. And then they’re going to bring up everything that has happened in the aftermath and try to use it to convince you that he shot that little boy because he was afraid for his life. They’re setting up a defense. You mark my words, they’re trying to set up a defense."

My mom’s take on what’s going on in Ferguson (via actualbanshee)

Your mom isn’t wrong. That’s why it’s so important to keep the signal going. Too many are silenced with lies and fear and if they cannot speak then we have to do it for them.

Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.

We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.

No justice, no peace.

was that a fucking FLAME THROWER? HOW WOULD THAT CONCEIVABLY BE REQUIRED OH COME THE FUCK ON

No, that’s not a flame thrower, that’s a grenade launcher, presumably refitted to fire tear gas cartridges.

depression is when you don’t really care about anything

anxiety is when you care too much about everything

and having both is just like what

Having both is staying in bed because you don’t want to go to school and then panicking because you don’t want to fail. Having both is wanting to go see your friends so you don’t lose them all, then staying home in bed because you don’t want to make the effort. Having both is insanely hard and sucks to deal with.

San Francisco Police shoot & kill 19 yr old

Warning: the video is graphic.

Yesterday, at 4:45 p.m., SFPD shot a teenager who fled during a fair inspection on a Muni light rail car. The cops claimed that he was armed and had fired shots at them first. After the suspect was shot in the back, no gun was found. Doesn’t this sound awfully familiar? 

Seriously though, you shot a 19 yr old over a $2 fair? And he later died in the hospital, all because he didn’t pay a $2 fair & you assumed he had a gun. Back up arrived before an ambulance did. No back up was needed. There were already other cops on the scene, some even carrying assault rifles.  The man was on the ground fighting for his life. That moment in the video where he struggles to even attempt to get up is some of the most chilling video I’ve seen. Ever. 

It’s okay though right? America will probably ignore this & move on to some more mindless crap,  as is usually the case. I’ve seen it before with the Oscar grant case, Sean bell, James Brissette, and countless others. When will this country’s collective conscious wake up?

 i’m tired of shit like this happening 

smfh what the fuck ever happened to shoot to injure not shoot to kill ! 

I’m so sickened by this. We’re losing our black man for what? For the color of their skin? Such bullshit. And he was only fucking 19 and had his whole life ahead of him. I hope you rest in peace dear 

This makes me so mad and WHY DOESNT THIS HAVE MILLIONS OF NOTES. this is more then just what we see on the news it’s reality for the black community.

Y’all….

SIGNAL BOOST!!!!! 

This is unreal.

SOMEONE PLEASE REMIND ME WHAT A COPS JOB IS AGAIN???

Oh my fucking god this is so scary ughhh

so hard to watch

They have guns pointed at a boy who is bleeding out on the ground with no weapon…..

NONONONO keep this out of my city!!

Let’s talk about the week that I worked 14 hours shifts doing manual labor/complex electrical work every day for 7 straight days, with a 1.5 hour commute each way, then immediately left for my college orientation.
What’s funny about that is that my anxiety went DOWN when I did that, because I was with people (albeit, practical strangers, I was new to their company) who cared and made it a fun place to work.
My poor therapist must think I’m a nutcase.

Whoa… Shit man. It’s true… I fear losing that ability to wander and explore those same silent places I shoot.

Being a chubby girl is hard when looking through how I’m going to modify a dress I have to fit the boyish, drop-waist style of the 1920s that is not at all flattering for my figure. Good thing Disneybounding isn’t as exact as if I were costuming for the period.

And good god, I worked in a costume shop but I spent most of that time hanging lights! My priorities lie with electricity, not chiffon.

I love that. “My priorities lie with electricity, not chiffon.”

Can I use that quote as an excuse to get out of Costume Shop class at UCSB?

You’ve got no idea how great it feels, as an actor, too come on stage and have people clap for you, do you?

You have no idea what it’s like to be a technician, who needs to hear cue lines, and has people clapping over them so we can’t hear, do you?
