Scene Queens: Where Are They Now?
i didn’t know just how badly i needed to see this
So many sidekicks where not pictured in the making of this.
“He [Kurt Cobain] talked about how ugly he thought he was all of the time. I remember one day he looked in a mirror and almost shed a few tears because he was so uncomfortable in his own skin. He was really insecure. This photo was one of the only ones he’s ever liked of himself. He told me he liked it because he thought he looked good. Kurt rarely looked at a photo of himself and felt he was attractive. He kept that photo in his wallet for awhile, I think. He was proud of it.”

As Gary Francione writes, “If you love animals but think that veganism is extreme, then you are confused about the meaning of love.”This image shows the firing of a captive bolt gun into the skull of a cow. If done “properly,” a long retractable steel rod will penetrate the brain and render the animal unconscious without killing him. Then he will be hung upside down and have his throat slit, dying from massive blood loss. This practice is a part of all commercial cow slaughter, including slaughter under every so-called humane welfare label in the U.S.
At the time of being forced into the restraining device to be shot, even the most “humanely” raised animals are confused, terrified, or, in the rare best case scenarios, have been led to their violent and needless execution by someone they trust or even love.
Don’t buy the humane myth.

There are so many holes where so many people used to be.

The news: A new scientific study from Princeton researchers Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page has finally put some science behind the recently popular argument that the United States isn’t a democracy any more. And they’ve found that in fact, America is basically an oligarchy.
An oligarchy is a system where power is effectively wielded by a small number of individuals defined by their status called oligarchs. Members of the oligarchy are the rich, the well connected and the politically powerful, as well as particularly well placed individuals in institutions like banking and finance or the military.
For their study, Gilens and Page compiled data from roughly 1,800 different policy initiatives in the years between 1981 and 2002. They then compared those policy changes with the expressed opinion of the United State public. Comparing the preferences of the average American at the 50th percentile of income to what those Americans at the 90th percentile preferred, as well as the opinions of major lobbying or business groups, the researchers found out that the government followed the directives set forth by the latter two much more often.
It’s beyond alarming. As Gilens and Page write, “the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.” In other words, their statistics say your opinion literally does not matter.
That might explain why mandatory background checks on gun sales supported by 83% to 91% of Americans aren’t in place, or why Congress has taken no action on greenhouse gas emissions even when such legislation is supported by the vast majority of citizens.
This problem has been steadily escalating for four decades. While there are some limitations to their data set, economists Thomas Piketty and Emmanuel Saez constructed income statistics based on IRS data that go back to 1913. They found that the gap between the ultra-wealthy and the rest of us is much bigger than you would think…
This is REALLY important.
