CultureMUSIC: “Work Song” - Hozier

When, my, time comes around
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
No grave can hold my body down
I’ll crawl home to her”  

CultureTHEATER: Bebe Neuwirth & Ann Reinking - "CHICAGO" c. 2006
For the Broadway/Fosse fans, this is a fine live clip from the 1997 Tonys featuring Neuwirth and legendary Fosse dancer Reinking performing "All That Jazz/Hot Honey Rag".  Classic Broadway.

A moment of silence for…

fucknofetishization:

black-american-queen:

Every black man that is “ok with white people using the n-word”

That Asian girl who applauds Katy Perry dressing up like a Geisha

Those native American folks who are fine with the “Redskins” mascot

The Chicano/Latino boy who wants to “deport all the illegals”

A moment of silence for our fallen soldiers. They are lost to the cause.

For people of color who fetishize themselves and are ok with others fetishizing them

CultureHISTORY: Tommie Smith and John Carlos, Olympics 1968

 “We were just human beings who saw a need to bring attention to the inequality in our country.” - Tommie Smith

On this date (10/16) in 1968, the ‘black power’ salute at the Summer Olympics in Mexico City. One of my favorite historical photos and one of the most powerful moments in black history. More background here.

CultureTRIBUTE: Elizabeth Peña (1961-2014)
Saddened to hear about the passing of Ms. Pena. The Cuban-American actress has been working in Hollywood for decades. Whether it was La Bamba, Jacob’s Ladder or Lone Star on the big screen; or L.A. Law, Resurrection Blvd and most recently Modern Family on the small screen, most viewers will recognize the her face. She’s had a long and solid career as a character actress. She will be missed. RIP.  IMDb Filmography here.

Joel, let me tell you something.
Every now and then, say ‘What the fuck’.
‘What the fuck’ gives you freedom.
Freedom brings opportunity and opportunity makes your future.
