We Are All In The Gutter
but some of us are looking at the stars
I search for light, all the while craving the darkness. My eyes seek the flash of illumination, whereas my lids weight to close the curtains on tired consciousness. My flame can burn hot and fierce, but it flickers. Expect anything, but not everything.

When they were in Indianapolis shooting To Please a Lady, Barbara’s business manager called her to ask what type of accommodation she would require. She told him she needed a bedroom and bath for herself, and the same for Harriet (her personal maid and friend), with a sitting room between. The business manager explained that Gable had requested that they stay in the best hotel in town, where blacks were not welcome. Barbara remained adamant. She wanted Harriet near her and requested that the business manager make the necessary arrangements. Later that day the director of the film, Clarence Brown, called Barbara to ensure her that Harriet would stay in the best “coloured” hotel in Indianapolis. The ever determined Barbara told him, “I’ll tell you what you can do to solve the whole thing. You make a reservation at the best coloured hotel in Indianapolis for two bedrooms and baths and a sitting room between, and that is where I’ll stay with Harriet. “Oh, Barbara, you can’t do that,” Brown protested. “The hell I can’t,” she said forcefully and hung up. As far as she was concerned the subject was closed. When they reached Indianapolis, she and Harriet both stayed at the best hotel in the city with Gable and the rest of the cast.

    So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain.
    Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
    A smile from a veil?
    Do you think you can tell?

  • you know when you’re drowning you don’t actually inhale until right before you black out? it’s called voluntary apnea. it’s like no matter how much you’re freaking out, the instinct to not let any water in is so strong that you won’t open your mouth until you feel like your head’s exploding. then when you finally do let it in, that’s when it stops hurting. it’s not scary anymore. it’s… actually kind of  p e a c e f u l.

The #Merica meme captures the complicated new patriotism of our generation

In a new study commissioned by MTV Networks, 60% of Millennials say the hashtag best characterizes how they feel about their country: immensely proud, but critical and hyper-aware of its flaws. Many of the #Merica memes poke fun at the idea of American exceptionalism, and much of the cutural and iconic imagery commonly used to promote the idea that the United States is the free world’s preeminent source of goodness.
