That moment when you realize she lives down the street from you
Bob Ross seemed like a joke when I was a kid. I’d watch here and there, simply because he came on RIGHT after my cartoons. But his words speak to me now that I’m an adult, and I hate that he’s no longer here for me to appreciate him the way he deserved.
All the respect in the world for this man.
A man admittedly followed and killed an innocent teenager, and was declared not guilty.
States are passing laws allowing guns in public schools.
Women are losing their reproductive rights at an increasingly alarming rate.
Riots are tearing through the streets in cities all over the world.
College tuition keeps rising, sending a generation into debt as soon as they are entering the adult world.
Education funds keep getting slashed.
Privacy no longer exists.
Corporations now have the same rights as people, and the funds to actually protect them.
Through loopholes, many U.S. Corporations pay a lower tax rate than middle class families.
States are now passing more voter ID laws and similar laws that only affect the lower class.
The corporate giant, Monsanto, has pretty much purchased and bribed its way into every grocery product on the shelf, resulting in food becoming less and less like, well, food. There are reasons Cancer rates are getting worse.
Likewise, Monsanto is making sure small American farmers are ran out of business. Also, their constant pesticide use is killing bees and other insects, causing dire environmental issues.
The mass media is more concerned with pop culture and trends, than the real issues the world is facing.
Human population is ever growing, and at rapid rates. It can’t just continue this way.
We have put so much trash in giant landfills all over our world and in our oceans. We are killing our planet.
By planet you mean we are killing ourselves.
Can we also pay attention to the fact that there aren’t just political problems going on???
I mean, seriously, I have been trying to tell everyone, BUT NO ONE IS EVEN REBLOGGING THE ARTICLES THAT COULD SAVE A LIFE
While all this is happening, the Pacific Ocean is being contaminated by not just trash, but Radiation.
There was a leak in the Fukushima power plant that has now poisoned the entire Pacific Ocean.
Some think that oh, maybe it will go away with time. Sure, it will, in about 16 million years. Yes, you read that right. Due to the long half life of iodine-129, the whole ecosystem of the Pacific Coast will be contaminated pretty much forever.
Here is the radiation levels in the ocean.
Everyone needs to wake up.
The government needs to be set straight. They were hiding this information so that people don’t panic. Well, now everyone’s gonna die and not know why.
Shit is going down, and we need to make sure EVERYONE knows EVERYTHING that is happening in this place we call home.
Holy fucking shit
fukushima is one of the scariest things going on and it’s literally getting less attention than that real houswives couple who are going to prison.
I’d be pretty okay with this being my bedroom..
Fresh forehead cut&peel.. Yum
Ever feel like you chose the wrong one…?
If grandmothers around the world had a rallying cry, it would probably sound something like “You need to eat!”
Photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s grandmother said something similar to him before one of his many globetrotting work trips. To ensure he had at least one good meal, she prepared for him a dish of ravioli before he departed on one of his adventures.
“In that occasion I said to my grandma ‘You know, Grandma, there are many other grandmas around the world and most of them are really good cooks,” Galimberti wrote via email. “I’m going to meet them and ask them to cook for me so I can show you that you don’t have to be worried for me and the food that I will eat!’ This is the way my project was born!”
The project, “Delicatessen With Love”, took Galimberti to 58 countries where he photographed grandmothers with both the ingredients and finished signature dishes.
He acted as photographer and stylist during each shoot with the grandmothers, taking a portrait of both the women and the food they made for him.

I am here for everything in this post.
February 18th was the day that Chantal and I split up. I’m still completely rocked by it, and still find myself breaking down.. Though I’ll never forget the reason, I couldn’t go on any further. I’m so unsure about a kid.. And to be honest, I fucked up, and it’s unknown but also unforgivable. God I miss being loved…
Laura… You started as the other girl, but since then you became so much more.. I could have fallen for you, in fact I did. You coulda gotten away with murder… But you fucked up. You pushed away a sure thing. And I’m glad it happened sooner than later. Stopping time.. Reversing time.. This second I can hear your heartbeat still.. I got completely lost in your eyes and saw something very warm..
I’m maybe realizing that all I actually saw in those eyes was my own reflection. And there’s some solace in finally knowing that I still got the fire of my ferocity burning inside. I’m not nearly as dead as I once was, and my greatness is so very close..
The author and artist ManWoman passed away this am. I still remember meeting him at his show in Vancouver in the early 90’s. It was at 12 midnights gallery, smash… by the cambie. his show opened my eyes to some great things. Thank you ManWoman. Thank you for having the courage to shine the pure light on a symbol that has been around FAR longer than the hate that stole it. The swastika was maybe your life’s work. To share what it has represented for so long, a symbol of love and positivity. You took on the negative emotions that people understandably associate with it… and tried to show them the history of this positive symbol. At times, that must have felt like such a huge endeavour. I have a lot of respect for you for doing this. Thank you for being an artist, and rebel.
safe journey sir. may we chat again on the other side…. in another life.
Rest in Peace Manny.
