Arcade Fire - Awful Sound (Oh Eurydice)
take all your pain / just put it on me / so you can breathe
I love celebrity encounters. The best was in a hotel in London.
I was in the lobby and saw Lucy Liu. She’s, like, this tall. She looked up at me and saw a tag sticking out the back of my sweater. She reached up, tucked it in, and said, ‘Now you’re perfect.’
I would die on a battlefield for Lucy Liu." - Canadian novelist Douglas Coupland on dying for Lucy Liu. (via heathicorn)
I don’t know that I find myself anywhere.
That gif set of her on Jon Stewart got like 60K+ notes, watch this get like ten…
watch this get ignored by every liberal on the fucking planet
I’ve read people dismiss this as propaganda, or say that they’ll take her seriously when she “takes off the headscarf and denounces Islam”. Makes me sick, frankly.
Tweets of the day: Of all the reactions to the finale of Breaking Bad, Phonte's might be the best. The Grammy-nominated ex-Little Brother member took to Twitter, comparing pretty much every name in the rap game to classic TV shows, and the analogies actually make a hell of a lot of sense; the “Mad Men = Eminem” one is so accurate it hurts.
Dubai and the United Arab Emirates has seen a recent influx of street art and artists. However, those working beyond preordained areas, outside the law and within a true graffati tradition, still surprisingly few. One of the only such street artists is known Arcadia Blank. Though rare and often illegal, the artist’s work has garnered the support of many locals by forgoing trite tagging for short thought provoking maxims. The short text pieces touch on religion, politics, globalization, media, and a range of other matters with an intriguing mix of sarcasm and sincerity. Further, Arcadia often utilizes temporary structures, which not only minimize private property damage but also is especially appropriate to the artwork’s style.
