the revoke award show

When a person wins an award it is all┬ácelebration, publicity, and inscriptions in the record-books. Now we face the flood of “revelations” that many recipients of such awards do not deserve the honor. So a small article is typed out to state that the award, distinction, title or honor has been revoked. Yet no transgressor…

business casual tried to steal my soul

Once a year all the teachers wore shirts from their alma mater colleges which meant jeans could be worn along with the t-shirt or sweatshirt. I walked in on that day in one of ill-fitting dresses I lined up to wear each week and was disappointed to walk into hallways of comfortably dressed colleagues. I…

Who Will Be the Gun Takers?

Who will be the gun takers? Don’t forget that actual individuals, not the devil himself, will have to go to gun person to gun person and collect all that power…

white people should never be the lead singer

I am going to attempt to lay-out a critical theory to collective redemption. Some weeks ago the mainstream media got ahold of some delicious mangled carcass, and like hyaenas, screamed and pulled and gnawed it apart – I refer to that Dohezal lady. Now the fact that a substantial quantity of people know what I…

public impotence yet aroused by tragedy porn

I was ┬áso drastically yanked out of my dulled down, subdued, blindness that begins to cloud your vision when a person has been isolated in the first world for too long. There all these issues that…

The heart and the mind are intertwined and your physical body feels the vibrations from your larger self. But for the…

false symbols, false hope

Yes this is co-optation of resistance, advertised darkness, fake rebellion, but if the power of art and symbols and beats and words can drive people to squander the worlds natural wealth, ignore the sufferings of others, and live blind, how come this cannot insight to action?
