The song of the common blackbird is the most beautiful sound I know. You can have all your fancy birds, with their wonderful plumage or distinct sounds. The ones that imitate and the ones that look a certain way. All those birds in America, Africa, Asia, Australia, you can keep them. I just want a common European blackbird in my garden, who’ll sing to me at five in the morning when I come home from a night out, or in the evening as the sun is setting, or when I’ve stayed up too late playing piano or talking to someone or just thinking. I want to hear its song, to remind me of spring, and of beautiful things. Give me a common blackbird any day, to sing me its song. That’s all I want.
FAMOUS FEMINISTS - ELLEN PAGE
I don’t know why people are so reluctant to say they’re feminists. Maybe some women just don’t care. But how could it be any more obvious that we still live in a patriarchal world when feminism is a bad word?
Men are being oppressed by women, and it is now a threat to the national security of the United States, according to a conservative author who appeared Thursday morning on Fox & Friends.
In his new book, Australian author Nick Adams alleges that “male culture” and men themselves have been systematically “called in to question” by the government and feminists.
He told Fox News hosts Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Clayton Morris that men were on the decline around the world. “Even in Australia, we’ve gone from wrestling with crocodiles to wrestling with lattes,” he lamented.
How come this fucktard isn’t asked a single challenging question? How come neither of these so-called journalists can ask him a question that doesn’t imply complete and total agreement with his agenda? This is the single most horrifying interview I’ve seen in a long time. This is complete and utter bullshit.
So, I’m doing a gig with these awesome guys tonight. They play weird horror themed bluesy tunes and have a really cool look and I’m looking forward to it a lot. You should come to, provided you’re in Oslo! We need more people to come so we can cover the fee for the sound tech, so bring all your friends! I’m on first, and I’ll start no later than 9:30, I think, and the concert only costs 50kr, which is a bargain for this much awesome, really, and it’s at Skuret, which is in Christian Krogh’s gate 2. Come check it out! It’s gonna be super awesome!
I’ll be bringing a few copies of my EP to sell as well. :)
These dudes are fucking legit. They don’t just show up one day in court, either, they actually make friends with the kids and let them know they have a support system and that there are people in the world who care about them and will always have their back. And less important, but also cool, is that the few times a couple of them have come into my cafe, they’ve been super friendly and polite and when I told one of the guys that I noticed his Bikers Against Child Abuse patch and wanted him to know how awesome I thought he was because of it, he got kind of shy and blushed and said, “The kids are the awesome ones, we just let them know they’re allowed to be brave.”
Needs to be reblogged.
Hey, bikers are AWESOME.
These guys are amazing people.
“BACA Mission Statement
Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) exists with the intent to create a safer environment for abused children. We exist as a body of Bikers to empower children to not feel afraid of the world in which they live. We stand ready to lend support to our wounded friends by involving them with an established, united organization. We work in conjunction with local and state officials who are already in place to protect children. We desire to send a clear message to all involved with the abused child that this child is part of our organization, and that we are prepared to lend our physical and emotional support to them by affiliation, and our physical presence. We stand at the ready to shield these children from further abuse. We do not condone the use of violence or physical force in any manner, however, if circumstances arise such that we are the only obstacle preventing a child from further abuse, we stand ready to be that obstacle.”
So, since it’s a new year, I thought I’d make an EP with some of the songs I’ve recorded in the year that’s been. Give it a listen and please consider buying it, as I am sad and poor and behind on the rent. :P I love you all! Happy New Year! :)
