Daily Show correspondent Michael Che tries to find a safe place to report from.
Smart words from a smart cookie.
Nah, I wanna be loved for my thoughts and everything else.
I won’t soon forget the events that took place in #ferguson…will you?
"Who’s the better player?"
"I am. He’s too scared to sacrifice his pieces. He hasn’t learned that sometimes you need to lose two to gain three."
Look, I really get this line of thinking. Especially the part about putting walls up. But that’s a helluva thing to ask of another person. And you miss out on a lot of great people because of those walls. What if, instead, it was about asking yourself why you have to put those walls up and why they make you feel protected. And then finding ways to still feel protected without walls, and finding someone who makes you feel safe about that process when you’re honest that you’re going through it.
With intricate detailing mixed with colorful tassels and feathers, let’s all take a minute or several to admire the extensive handiwork of Anita Quansah modeled by the beautiful Ayoola Bakare.
“Anita Quansah London was created in 2006 by bespoke jewellery curator Anita Quansah. After obtaining a textile degree in 2003, from Chelsea College of Art and Design London, Anita Quansah has been working to develop and promote recycling in her designs by creating elaborate one of kind statement jewelleries.
Her pieces are strong statements, which are a fusion of modern bohemian tribal mixed with her cultural background which is African.”
Those are freaking gorgeous!
Reid Wiseman is a national treasure.
We live on a pretty extraordinary blue dot.
Animation Breakdown: A Tribute To Beyond The Mind’s Eye
Groundbreaking in both its capacity to soothe the savage, ponytailed beast and in its presentation of the most cutting-edge CGI created up to that point, the Mind’s Eye quadrology of ‘90s home video “albums” represent as big of a turning point as Jurassic Park, Terminator 2 or The Lawnmower Man in the way we relate to computer animation onscreen. These compilations are a vast, rippling pool of flowing, morphing dreamscapes, featuring excerpts from both big-name product and underground artists — and, these days, viewing them can simultaneously take you outside of time in a psychedelic sense, and directly to a time when these works represented the apex of digital achivement. For this special tribute show, we’re teaming up our friends PBDY, Matthewdavid & a special guest — all artists on the L.A.-based record label Brainfeeder (also home to Flying Lotus, The Gaslamp Killer, Daedelus and so many more) to give you a guided tour through the most blissed-out moments in the Mind’s Eye canon.
I am so ridiculously excited for this. I wore out my VHS copy of Minds Eye growing up.
I’m going to this with JoeTheBlogger and Ultraprism. I COULD NOT be more excited.
