I need to write a 250 word essay on what my passion is and why I am passionate about it between tonight and tomorrow. The problem is 1. I am tired and rather burnt out from the end of the semester. 2. that the issue is rather close to my heart, and I am having trouble articulating what I want to say. I need a ruthless beta who will help me break through the complicated feelings and thoughts that comprise the why of what I want to do. Help? Comment below if you are interested in helping me.

The Massacre For Which Thanksgiving Is Named


By Douglas Watts

I was born on soil soaked with blood

Where the head of King Philip was ground in the mud

By the Pilgrims of Plymouth, and their first born sons.

They put his head on a spike and let it rot in the sun.

Shackled his children and family.

Shipped them to Barbados and sold them into slavery.

Now they taught me in grade school

About the first Thanksgiving

How Massasoit and Squanto kept the Pilgrims living.

But the teachers never told us what happened next.

How the head of King Philip was chopped off at the neck.

The teachers never told us what happened next.

How the head of Pometacom was sawed off at the neck.

The teachers never told us what the Pilgrims did

To Massasoit’s second son.

They put his head on a spike and let it rot in the sun.

The teachers never told us what they did

To kids who swam in the same brooks as me.

They put their legs in iron chains and sold them into slavery. Yeah, there is rather more to the stupid legend than you were told

The Massacre for which Thankstaking is Named Part 2

[livejournal.com profile] sanguinity made compelling objection to the videohere So I now take it down. I do apologise for my thoughtlessness.

Talk about taking bad things and making joke! here have some MORE smallpox!

Lady Gaga Paparazzi VMA performance

I dont like Single Ladies, so Beyonce's performance bored me to death. Pink's trapeze artist outfit which seemed to be based on Lil Kim's some years ago made me laugh. The performance itself bored me. The Bands they played during intermissions were TERRIBLE. Muse's front man is gonna need to open up his mouth and sing louder, I couldn't hear much of what he said until around the last part of his song. And I found that I didn't give a damn who won. They made a big hype on Jay-Z and Alicia Keys closing the show. It was alright. In short the damn thing sucked.

4 sheriffs just pointed their guns directly at me!!! I am here sitting at the computer which has a direct line of sight to my backdoor. Saw these guys looking in the apartment next door. Next thing I know, I look up and they are all crouched out my backdoor, (My backdoor and patio are enclosed in mesh, by the way and then there is a glass sliding door) with guns pointed at me, demanding that I come out there. I'm like What the hell??? And I call Dad and he goes out there. Turns out that they are looking for a guy that used to live next door some months ago. And they told Dad that they saw the back door open...it was??? Really? and were thinking of coming into our apartment. To which I repeat...WHAT THE FUCK??!?!?!?

What karynthia said

Because some people seem to believe that we cannot see your dirty racial laundry re: Uhura and Spock, mixed with teh smelly misogyny that plagues all the other females who have the unfortunately plot point of getting in the way of your favorite slash couples.

And because it is disgusting of you to appropriate the struggles of LGBT Americans so as to satisfy your attraction to slashing goodlooking men. (Hello lesbians in Star Trek would be disappointing, we need Kirk Spock or else! To say nothing of the relative paucity of fic slashing women compared to men.)

STOP WHITEWASHING YOUR BOOK COVERS!!!! You are actually LOSING customers because of that, assholes! I saw both of her books and decided against picking them up because I was sick and tired of white protagonists all day long and was looking for books with POC on them!

Speaking of which, I have REALLy got to congratulate my Barnes and Noble. I have complained before about the mostly white section of YA fic. In teh past few weeks, it has diversified to an ASTONISHING extent. There are book featuring black people with black faces on the covers, that aren't necessarily about blacks in the ghetto, all over the place! There was even a book written by an American of mixed Indian and African descent featuring an Indian/African American girl and her Hispanic stepsister! And historicals. With black girls wearing awesome dresses on the cover!! SQUEEEEE!!!

Now, I want more books featuring lesbian characters (seriously guys, it ain't only white boys who are gay WTF!!) more Muslim Americans and Hispanic and Latina Americans WHO AREN'T REPRESENTED BY WHITE OR HIGH BROWN PEOPLE ON THE COVER BECAUSE SKIN COLOUR OF HISPANIC AMERICANS ACTUALLY ENCOMPASS THAT AND FIRST NATIONS AND BLACK PEOPLE AS WELL AS THEIR VARIOUS MIXES AS WELL WTH IS WRONG WITH YOU!!! And trans teens as well as Native American books aside from "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian" would be nice! Great start! Now lets do more!!!

Also, the extra seating, especially those squishy armchairs, is GREATLY appreciated!

EDIT: Huh:Kimani Tru (YA African American fic) is an imprint of Harlequin! I didn't know that!

So willow is pointing out that the Kimani Tru Imprint has skanky SKANKY RACE AND CLASS ISSUES

And I remember that that there is issues with the way black teens are being presented in their YA books vs the way white teens are presented Oh my god. This is annoying the fuck out of me now.

Dear internetz,

Properly tagging months worth of posts....going up to years worth of posts, as in the case of my personal journal, is boring, tedious and aggravating. That is all.

someone on my flist posted a set of story recs that included Merlin/Arthur in which Merlin compares magic to having a chest congestion. Can someone link me to the story rec post in question? I'd like to read the other recs.
