OMG

I wish I could marry him

It may be late, but shit is deep. Except the centaur thing, that’s dumb.

Dear Students,

For a good time, look at these photos, find the deepest blacks, the part you would color in solid with your Flair pen.

Then find the lightest point in the picture.

Now try to pay attention to both of them at the same time.

It felt as if one’s entire world was one, long Sunday afternoon.
Nothing to do. Nowhere to go.

why do black people use you in the wrong context? such is "you ugly" instead of "you're ugly" I know u guys can differentiate, it's a nuisance

you a bitch

It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.

So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.

What’s more, it’s been shown that copula deletion occurs in AAVE exactly in those contexts where copula contraction occurs in so-called “Standard American English.” That is, the basic sentence “You are great” can become “You’re great” in SAE and “You great” in AAVE, but “I know who you are” cannot become “I know who you’re” in SAE, and according to reports, neither can you get “I know who you” in AAVE.

In other words, AAVE is a set of grammatical rules just as complex and systematic as SAE, and the widespread belief that it is not is nothing more than yet another manifestation of deeply internalized racism.

Another view of the Bacon Printing Company. I knew they had to print it somewhere.
(I used tilt shift to make it appear as it would on the Mr Rogers neighborhood diorama.)

A ticket stub from a Fugazi, Shellac, and The Make Up show in Chicago, October 10, 1995, at the Rainbo Rink. I have never gone to many shows that actually necessitate a paper ticket (I prefer small clubs and most of the shows I’m interested in seeing don’t sell out) but I do try to save ticket stubs when I get them. This was a good show but I always have gotten bored at some point whenever I’ve seen Shellac and I remember spending a chunk of their set playing Skee-Ball in the fabulous arcade at the Rainbo Rink. The Rainbo, which was once the home of the Kinetic Playground, was torn down eight years later. From Wikipedia: “When the building was being demolished in 2003, an assortment of human bones and tennis shoes were discovered in what had been the building’s basement.”
