whateverjeanne:

The “cast” of Paris is Burning on The Joan Rivers Show. Fuck Joan is such a modern and cutting edge lady. You remember that time Joan hosted Club Kids Amanda Lepore, Michael Alig, James St. James, and RuPaul right? Me too. Well today I showed Paris is Burning in class. I was left really wondering about Poconos vs. Catskills. A critical fashion question for our times.

But now American bands such as Liturgy, Krallice, Absu, Leviathan, Wolves in the Throne Room, and Inquisition have left a fair amount of the pageantry behind—not to mention the violence — “The Dark Arts: How to approach black metal” by Sasha Frere-Jones, The New Yorker, October 10, 2011

A tattoo artist raped his girlfriend using tattoo tools above a near West Side tattoo parlor, authorities allege. Jef Whitehead [Leviathan], 42, allegedly choked and beat his 26-year-old girlfriend unconscious by banging her head against a wall above Taylor Street Tattoo and Piercing, 1150 W. Taylor, in the early hours of Saturday morning.— “Cops: Tattoo artist charged with sex assault” by Kim Janssen, Chicago Sun-Times, January 10, 2011

I realize that one way I use my privilege is to intellectualize things (that in and of itself is a problematic name for the process), and I am normally not one to buy into the fact that new technologies will change much of anything, but seeing police state confronted with an increasing  ability to document abuse and get it out immediately is very compelling. Of course, most abuse still goes undocumented. Also, THIS IS SO FUCKED UP, the above.

DIRECT FLASHBANG ATTACK ON MEDICS

DIRECT FLASHBANG ATTACK ON MEDICS:

ijustkeepwaiting:

At 3:20 you can clearly see the police throw a flashbang at medics trying to help the fallen protesters. 

This is sickening. How long do you think you can get away with this for?

You fucking monsters.
