"

The mower stalled, twice; kneeling, I found
A hedgehog jammed up against the blades,
Killed. It had been in the long grass.

I had seen it before, and even fed it, once.
Now I had mauled its unobtrusive world
Unmendably. Burial was no help:

Next morning I got up and it did not.
The first day after a death, the new absence
Is always the same; we should be careful

Of each other, we should be kind
While there is still time.

"

Going on right now in Ferguson: Police are raiding a church that has been stocked with medical supplies, food, and tear gas recovery kits for community members engaging in protests. This cannot be allowed to continue.

Stand up, speak out.

Victorian Ghost Photography

Do not talk to me about how serious and straight-laced the Victorians were

1863-project HEY HEY STEPH

The Victorians actually had great senses of humor when it came to photography. They did a lot of gag photos involving multiple exposures.

laughing at how CNN went into one of the looted businesses in Ferguson and spoke to the owner. the reporter started asking all these leading questions that were clearly setting up answers that expressed anger that their businesses were broken into. 

The owner was like “actually I just want justice for Mike Brown im not worried about material things”

Anonymous said: Iggy grew up poor and saved all her money to fly to Miami and start her life when she was only sixteen. She only had a few thousand dollars and she left all she knew and her family to make something of herself in America and the streets of Miami were really rough. She would work and save her money so she could record in cheap studios. She knows struggle. I know she's of a different genre than the classic rappers and I realize her music isn't incredibly special but don't depreciate her ambition.

I never seen a response so perfect.

People who think a white teen with a few thousand dollars defines “struggle” is clueless as fuck.

"only had a few thousand dollars" my aunts best friend came here from Nairobi with 12 dollars to her name and now owns 3 businesses. try again

"There is one scene in the book where Gus goes to a gas station, and he tries to buy a pack of cigarettes because it’s the only way he can assert his own independence after becoming very sick. He [Ansel] did that scene so much justice, and he brought his all. It was midnight when we filmed it, and he just sat there and lost it for hours. I was just sort of in awe." - Shailene Woodley

A BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO HOGWARTS.

A handy guide I wrote and illustrated for writers doing fic set at Hogwarts who want to know where everything is in relation to everything else. Inspired by the sad dearth of decent official maps from JK, it’s a first-person walk-through of Hogwarts imagined as if I was a Prefect handing out pamphlets to all the poor ickle firsties. ^_^’

The model featured in one of Burger King’s infamously suggestive ads for the BK Super Seven Incher has said the company used her image without her permission. In a statement, the woman said that she was publicly humiliated and calls for people to boycott.
