If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do? 

Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.

Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?

On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.

If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th

Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown

if u dont go to university you are simply unmotivated and deserve minimum wage. you should of thought about this earlier. when you were 15. why were you such an irresponsible 15 year old. i go  to university every day and feel clean and wholesome discussing other people’s poverty while i sit at a crisp white ikea desk in the student lounge. sometimes i turn the pages in my notebook because the sound it makes calms me

I was so hurt until about halfway down.

Look, kids. We need skilled labor. Vocational academies are a great way to go. Hell, work your way from the bottom and you can be a baller. University degrees are not the only way to go.

But still, you should probably get going.

People who act like it’s a POCs responsibility to be cordial and composed when interacting with racists instead of it being a person’s responsibility to not be a fucking shit-stain racist baffle me

No no no! POCs should! Because manipulation!

How shitty does it look if someone’s racist to the nicest person in the world?

Scarlett Johansson is a Zionist and supports Israel

stop reblogging pictures of her genocide-loving face

also is the current PR face of an Israeli corporation with factories built on illegally occupied Palestinian land and tapping Palestinian water…

…there are tons of rape apologists, but you can’t disapprove of someone’s work because of their beliefs. This sounds odd, but belief and speech are not really actions. Proclamation is, but speech is not.

Here’s why I say this: Orson Scott Card is a homophobe. Openly. He’s kind of a cunt about it, too. That doesn’t mean that I won’t purchase his literature on the creation of characters and viewpoints; he’s one of the most impressive world-builders alive today.

Roman Polanski is a child molester. Flat out. Has that in common with Lewis Carol. I usually prefer the term statuatory rapist for him considering how awkwardly harsh it sounds considering the insistence of adolescents to consider themselves adult. Still, he’s an incredible artist.

I choose to judge media-makers based on their work because we can kind of all assume their fucking nuts anyway.

Weird book, Great prose

So, I done got myself a book.

In one of my classes, we read Zachary Schomburg’s Fjords, Vol. 1, which has a lot of weirdness and warmth and excellence and refrigerators. With that as a benchmark expectation, it’s no surprise that Schomburg’s The Book of Joshua delivers and builds on his unique flavor of ordinary weirdness.

Weirdest read, but totally worth it.
