YOU SHALL ALL BE UNDER PETTICOAT RULE.

YOU SHALL ALL BE UNDER PETTICOAT RULE.

Today, Security camera clips that make the news usually show bad things, but here, Coke decided to “look at the world a little differently” in this heartwarming viral video. People stealing kisses, harmless soldiers, music addicts, honest pickpockets and potato chip dealers. Love, Attacks of friendship, friendly gangs and kindness. Unexpected firemen, rebels with a cause and peaceful warriors. A lot of crazy people, and a few heroes. 

I love this so much

Every time I see this I well up. Humanity can be a nasty thing, but it’s also so beautiful.

This is how I choose to support this woman who wrote- http://www.xojane.com/issues/my-picture-was-stolen-and-turned-into-a-fat-shaming-anti-feminist-meme

For every person who has ever been bullied… I support you. For every person who believes women should have the same rights as men… I stand with you. THAT IS THE DEFINITION OF A FEMINIST. 

Reblog this, and take your own version! SHOW YOUR SUPPORT, and show the No Hope for the Human Race facebook page that they will not win!

My fuck you bird is for the assholes who made and posted that meme.

I posted Peter Bjorn & John’s “Nothing to Talk About” music video on MotoLady yesterday… today I got a little distracted watching Japanese rockabilly gangs such as the Black Shadows and the Levels. The Black Shadows and the boss of the gang were featured in the music video. 
Anywho… saw this chick… look at her breaking ALL the rules of Japanese culture. First of all, the rockabilly clubs are already saying fuck you to Japanese norms, they’re loud, ride motorcycles, do whatever the hell they want… dancing in the park and generally causing a ruckus. To take it one step further, instead of dressing up in a poodle skirt, this girl is rockin’ a leather jacket, black skinny jeans, and a pomp.
She might be my new hero.

Ze Frank insights and wisdom - 

You never know what direction the bus is going before you get on it. But right when I’d start something new before I had a chance to explore it or get good at it, people start telling me to stop! They want me to get off the bus and sit at the bus stop with them and make fun of the other busses as they go by- but I want to be on the bus! 

I’ve got the yuck in me too, don’t get me wrong. I’ve felt it when a friend belly laughs at something that I think is predictable and first I feel confusion and then all of a sudden I feel contempt. “No you should think that’s stupid!” As if my feeling of disgust was more valuable than his experience of sheer joy. But I wonder, I wonder if there’s a brief flash of loneliness between my confusion and contempt. 

Like any moment where I’m not able to participate in something is some sign that the world is slowly moving away from me. Like I’d rather be joined in unhappiness than be confronted with happiness that I can’t be a part of.

So, as much as it pains me to say it, I was forced to give in to the very concept I said I wouldn’t allow myself to be a victim of. Two nights ago, my boss faced me with a choice. Told me that if I couldn’t fit all of my super thick hair, pulled back, into one of their tiny ass company hats, then I wouldn’t be able to come in for my next shift & stay employed by his business. So as a result, my physical image has now shifted into a product of modern opinionated eurocentric judgemental standards. 

3 whole years of progress buzzed onto the floor.

Rent has to get paid.

Simple as that.

Fuck that shit man. Where do you work? Lets get this shit recognized. How many of you have been told to look a certain way at work? I know I have.. I’ve been forced to wear long sleeves to hide my tattoos.

Reblog if you have ever been treated differently at work due to your appearance

Wore short sleeves today for this guy.

Is winning all that counts? Are you absolutely sure about that?
Very little has been said about this…..On December 2, Basque athlete Iván Fernández Anaya was competing in a cross-country race in Burlada, Navarre. He was running second, some distance behind race leader Abel Mutai - bronze medalist in the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the London Olympics. As they entered the finishing straight, he saw the Kenyan runner - the certain winner of the race - mistakenly pull up about 10 meters before the finish, thinking he had already crossed the line.
Fernández Anaya quickly caught up with him, but instead of exploiting Mutai’s mistake to speed past and claim an unlikely victory, he stayed behind and, using gestures, guided the Kenyan to the line and let him cross first.
Ivan Fernandez Anaya, a Basque runner of 24 years who is considered an athlete with a big future (champion of Spain of 5,000 meters in promise category two years ago) said after the test:
"But even if they had told me that winning would have earned me a place in the Spanish team for the European championships, I wouldn’t have done it either. I also think that I have earned more of a name having done what I did than if I had won. And that is very important, because today, with the way things are in all circles, in soccer, in society, in politics, where it seems anything goes, a gesture of honesty goes down well."
He said at the beginning: “unfortunately, very little has been said of the gesture. And it’s a shame. In my opinion, it would be nice to explain to children, so they do not think that sport is only what they see on TV: violent kicks in abundance, posh statements, fingers in the eyes of the enemy …”

Similar to an iceberg, most of what makes up the being that is me can’t be seen on the surface. However underneath, it is epic. It is jagged and yet smooth- ready to roll past obstacles or break through debris. It is strong and determined- following the current. 
We are all like icebergs.

Middleman.

I am a conundrum. I am that moment your tongue moves to say something and your brain forgets to send the signal. I am that breath purposely placed between words to give a moment for thought. I am that stutter, that quivering lip before asking someone out. I am the tick in your hand, in your eyebrow, in your neck… the one that you worry gives away your intent. 

I am those silences between exchanges when both parties process their thoughts. I am the searing frustration of interruption. I am the relieving calm of understanding. 

I am a middleman, always in between, always moving. Always grasping reality from the edges. 

I just got chills and then teared up.

For thousands of years humans have been asking questions they really did not want to know the answers to.
