The Blue Glasses



I think every writer/artist has that one story/drawing that gets completely skipped over, and they’d never say it aloud, but inside they’re like

'fuck all y'all, that's one of the best things I've done'

plus one story/drawing that everyone loves

'really? that one?'






I remember when I first found out the truth about “Somali pirates” I got chills because of how horrific the truth was and how insanely creepily well the media had twisted the situation. Every single fucking article making it seem like these “pirates” were just after money or something holding innocent people hostage and I never gave it a second thought, why would I? There was no indication that people were trying to legitimately fight off disgusting imperialism that left nuclear waste in their waters, that over 300 people have died from radiation sickness, that Europeans have been stealing Somalia’s seafood because they overfished their own waters and the indigenous fisherman are starving and so these “pirates” emerged to deal with those stealing their country’s natural resources. The truth is enough to make anyone sick to their stomachs.

This is a great article about the truth about Somali pirates, in case anyone wants a source.


Why isn’t anyone talking about this?


The Nima You should Know!

This is how colourful the people of Nima, a predominantly muslim community in Ghana celebrated the Ramadan Mubarak festivities. The best of traditional Africa fashion were on display. Food and Music were the order of the day in this lively community. Nima is one of the communities many people hold erroneous perception about. People who have not even visited Nima think it is a hub for criminals and many other social vices. But a visit to the community reveals you to freedom of expression, respect for authority and the free will to explore talent. Nima has the best of Local African dishes like TZ, Tubani, + many more! The Nima market is one of the busiest markets in Ghana.

The community is also filled with religious and academic scholars. Some of the amazing crop of young artists in Accra can be located at Nima. The Nima Muhinmanchi Art organization has been a platform for training many young people who want to be artists. Through accradotalt's CHALE WOTE Street Art Festival, Some of the members of the group have been the brains behind the graffiti murals inside the Old Kingsway Building in James Town. And they are going to be at #ChaleWote2014 on August 23 & 24.

Conversation that happened the other day

  • Friend: What are you knitting?
  • Me: It's crochet.
  • Friend: How is that different?
  • Me: Knitting is two pointy sticks, crochet is one hook.
  • Friend: How are they different?
  • Me: Knitting I can poke you to death, crochet I can hook out your brains like the Egyptians.

erasure of Asian people and characters is very deep rooted in American media and goes all the way back to conception—don’t let it persist!

Important even when you’re excited about this movie!

Wait, that scene where Sam asks what a literal Lemur is was in the theatrical cut. At least, it was in the UK. Was it not the the US theatrical version?


No, its only in the extended version over here- did the UK show that in the theater??? Awesome o_o

Yeah it did. It was a pretty small bit so I wonder why they cut it from the US…?
