    I’ve figured it out! If I’m unhappy with how few compliments I get, don’t whine about it and beg for more, just be the one to give myself a shitton of them!

    "Why thank you, Julian!"

    this is true, i can say this as an objective observer.

Here is the Hollywood Diversity Report conducted by the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies at UCLA. I think it is incredibly important that all of my film and television friends see this. Women are underrepresented at a rate of 12 to 1 among film directors. In 2011, 95.9% of film directors were male and 87.8% were white. 
Numbers that high and that consistent are not aberrations. They are not accidents. It is deliberate, whether consciously executed or quietly harbored internally. Women and minorities are not less talented, less capable, or less deserving than white men; we simply are not permitted to inhabit an equal amount of silver screen real estate.

^^HAVE YOU EVER BEEN SO MAD AT HOLLYWOOD THAT U WANTED TO START YOUR OWN HOLLYWOOD?
Well! If you are a lady, non-binary, or genderqueer filmmaker who wants to hang out in a hub with other like-minded filmmakers, please request to join!
The group is a safe space and in 24 hours will go from “closed” to “secret”. It’s only an hour old as of now but it’s already shaping up to be a really rad resource.

One Version of ‘One Version of Terence McKenna’s Life,’ by Tao Lin
The public story of Terence McKenna’s life—in my view, and by my estimates—is a ~450-page book, which could be titled One Version of Terence McKenna’s Life. It’s composed of Terence’s memoir, True Hallucinations (1993), his essays “I Understand Philip K. Dick” and “Among Ayahuasqueros,” certain sentences and anecdotes in dozens of his interviews and talks, and ~15% of The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss - My Life with Terence McKenna (2012) by Dennis McKenna, Terence’s younger brother by four years.
In a lecture called “Surfing Finnegan’s Wake,” Terence referred to a book of literary criticism that told James Joyce’s 656-page novel, Finnegans Wake (1939), in a one-page version, a ten-page version, and a 200-page version. The following biography (which to some degree presupposes knowledge of Terence McKenna’s Memes) is my eight-page, fractal-inflected, short-story-esque version of One Version of Terence McKenna’s Life.

The world which we perceive is a tiny fraction of the world which we canperceive, which is a tiny fraction of the perceivable world. – Terence McKenna, 1987. [“Understanding and Imagination in the Light of Nature”]

1. Paonia, Colorado (1946-1962)
Terence Kemp McKenna was born on November 16, 1946, in “a Colorado cattle and coal-mining town of 1,500 people named Paonia,” he said in an interview in 1993. He elaborated:

They wanted to name it Peony but didn’t know how to spell it. In your last year of high school, you got your girlfriend pregnant, married her, and went to work in the coalmines. An intellectual was someone who read TIME.

Israel using illegal weapons in GazaJuly 21, 2014
Israeli occupation forces are using lethal and internationally banned weapons in their aggressive war against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, experts and witnesses said this morning.
Israeli warplanes fired white phosphorus munition in the eastern Gaza Strip. White phosphorus burns fiercely and can set cloth, fuel, ammunition and other materials on fire, and cause serious burns or death. It was heavily used by Israel during its savage war on Gaza in 2008/2009, and caused many severe casualties.
Meanwhile, witnesses said that the Israeli occupation used flechette bombs on Saturday in the Shujaya neighbourhood causing the death of 100 civilians in the bloodiest day Gaza has witnessed so far.
Doctors saw bodies with nail shrapnel, and removed them from the wounds of those who came into hospital. While, several people and journalists collected nails from bomb sites and posted their photos on Facebook.
In the early days of the Israeli war, Norwegian doctor Mads Gilbert told a press conference in Al-Shifa Hospital that he found effects of DIME weapons on the bodies of the Palestinian casualties.
"A good number of the injuries seen here are consistent with the use of dense inert metal explosives, or DIME, that we saw during the 2009 attack and also in 2006," said Gilbert.
He continued: “The bodies are pretty much destroyed by the enormous energy released by the explosives that are shot near them or at them.”

  • USPS has stopped delivering packages and started leaving “ATTEMPTED DELIVERY” notes instead, without actually attempting delivery. I work from home, my doorbell is working, at no time is there no one here to answer the door. I understand not wanting to haul ass up some stairs to ring a doorbell for someone who isn’t home, which probably happens a lot to postal workers, but at the same time, this is making expedited shipping completely useless because it takes 1-4 days for a Redelivery Request to actually go through.

    This just started happening this month. Does anyone have any ideas on how to actually get my mail?

I want to make some (non-self) portraits using this method/ to have a series, but I get so weirded out and awkward when I try to photograph others. Next up on the inside, in lieu of flower petals: tripe!?
