The Beatles owe soooooo much to teenage girls for their success like i’m pretty sure it was teenage girls who were screaming and fainting at shows and buying all those records and not old ponytailed dudes or moody teen boys with bad hair? and somehow everyone forgets that when they’re yelling about “real music” and putting down teen girls for the performers they get excited about. like whatever. I see you.

This beautiful girl on the left in this picture is my baby sister. She is 14yrs old. Her name is Jamie Marie Meyers, AND SHE IS MISSING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She has been missing since Sunday, 04/21/2013. She is thought to be with her “boyfriend” whom is 18yrs old. His name is Matthew. We believe he’s convinced her to run away with him. We are terrified for her safety and it is unlike her to just leave without even a text. This girl is my life. She means more to me than anything else on this planet and not knowing if she’s okay is literally tearing me apart from the inside out. I want to die. PLEASE, PLEASE HELP ME! I JUST WANT TO KNOW THAT MY BABY SISTER IS OKAY!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She is thought to be somewhere in New York State but was last seen at her home in Spring Hill, Florida. ANY AND ALL INFORMATION REGARDING HER WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED AND I WOULD OWE YOU MY LIFE!!!!!!!!

I can’t believe this happened to my mom, but it did, my mom didn’t told me that she was assaulted the last Monday, but I just heard her crying because of it. I asked her what was happening and she told me everything, they stole from her the money that was supposed to be for paying her employees, and it was a lot of money [I’m talking more than 40 000 pesos, and thats like 3000 dollars], and her boss called her saying that she has to pay everything before the 10th of November, or she’s gonna sue her.
As you can see, it’s a big thing, and we don’t have that money because they have to pay a lot of things every month, like my brother’s medicines [He has asperger], and they just end paying for my last brothers operation [He had one three months ago] they give my brother a new valve. So I’m desperate, I don’t know what to do, so I want to start a donating thing, but I don’t know how.
Please, if someone knows what to do I would be grateful for the rest of my life, and I’ll give something, but please, help me, I need it for my mom. If you don’t know, please reblog this, so someone could tell me.
pd. The image is the denounced that my mom did the last Monday, she didn’t told me about it because she didn’t want to bother me.Please help! 


I have 15 more days to raise 3320 dollars for my mom or she is going to jail, so please I’m practically begging for help at this point, please help just donating a dollar or a couple, they will be greatly appreciated and at some point in the next two months I’ll do a Giveaway with the people who donate.Here’s the link As I said before, I’ll do a giveaway with the people who donated, so if you donate send me a message and you’ll be automatically participating. I’m not sure yet of what I’ll be giving, but it’ll be something like a computer or a phone.Thank you for your time.

Alright guys. From now to 12 AM EST, every 5 dollar receipt of donation in my box by a Tumblr user will get a drawing as prize. I won’t finish by 12, but at least for tonight, give 5$ to help this person out and I’ll do a waist-up sketch of any character you like :) EVERY RECIEPT=A DRAWING! If I don’t finish by tonight, your request will be sent to you within 3 days, tops!

BREAKING: Pe' Sla Fund Drive Extended by 17 Days

this-is-not-native:

We’re at 20% funding

Tweet celebrities; your local news stations. Get the word out and donate.

This is native.

36 hours now!

pandaseal:

49 hours left to save Pe’ Sla and just 17% of goal raised

ellydwerewolf:

ellydwerewolf:

Pe’ Sla is an area in the Black Hills of South Dakota (just west of Rapid City) that is considered by the Lakota people to be the Center and heart of everything that is. It is part of our creation story. It is a sacred place. We perform certain ceremonies at Pe’ Sla which sustain the Lakota way of life and keep the universe in harmony. This area is currently owned by the Reynolds family. They plan to auction off almost 2,000 acres on August 25, 2012 to the highest bidder. It is likely that the state of South Dakota will put a road directly through Pe’ Sla and open up this sacred place for development.

Tweet celebrities. Submit to news watch blogs. Post on Facebook. Reblog, reblog, reblog. Spread this EVERYWHERE. This cannot stand. They would never bulldoze and build a road through the Vatican. Please, respect all sacred sites. Help keep this place of worship safe!

We’re really down to the wire and can use all the help we can get. Literally every dollar counts. Anything you can give, anywhere you can signal boost, anything you can do to get the word out. Please help.

Also, I hate that this needs saying but: this is not the time to be debating religious views or the validity of religion itself. This is not the time to be saying defeatist, pessimistic things about the likelihood of this campaign’s success. All of that hurts and derails this cause. Please don’t do that, OK?

Petition to Add More Female Characters to Guardians of the Galaxy

Please sign & reblog! Let’s get Marvel to add some more ladies to that line up!

I know that there are parties and festivals going on where there is a henna/mehndi booth and I just want to make sure everyone is aware of Black Henna and that is dangerous.

I would reblog the post but I’m mobile so.

If anyone has a free couch in the nearby area and can help her for a bit please kindly send a message to myself, pandalot. Anything you can offer to keep her from being homeless helps!

i dont have room where i live but signal boost for anyone around me who might

I don’t live anywhere near there but I’m damn sure someone does.

Anyone in Boston able to lend a hand? D:

Shit Racist White People Say to Black and Indigenous People
White People: Yeah, we did the Natives real dirty. We won the land fair and square! You guys just weren't developed enough!
White People: What'd I say? I'm totally not being racist, but you guys didn't have civilizations.
Indigenous People: Iroquois Confederacy? Cahokia? The Mashika? Aztecs? Mayans? The herbal medicines of our ancestors are the backbones of modern pharmaceutical industries. Sustainable farming? Us. Masters of musical styles you haven't even heard of? Us. The U.S. government system? Y'know, where you exert power from a central authority into smaller units? Yeah, that's us too. Where do you think the word "caucus" comes from? Us. Astronomy? Us. Anesthetics? Us. Most of your staple foods you take for granted? Us. Almanacs? Us. Flying machinery? Us. Having a BBQ party? Us. Basketball? Us. Embalming? Us. Advanced architecture? Us. Your ancestors would have died it if weren't for us. Yet you claim everything our ancestors did was built by aliens.
White People: But, like, genocide isn't new to human history.
Indigenous People: It's the only time in history when genocide destroyed and displaced hundreds of cultures in an entire *creed* of people spanning two continents and a collection of islands. Our blood and labor is the backbone of the modern world.
White People: ... Oh.
________________________________________________________________________________
White People: Get over it, niggers! Africa was just ass-backwards! We took you guys from the jungle tribes and educated you!
White People: What'd I say? I'm totally not being racist, but you guys didn't have civilizations!
Black People: The West African empires of Ghana, Mali, Songhai? How about Kemet? Kush? Kanem-Bornu? You raided Africa for its natural resources, stripping it of produce and people to feed your fat egos, and you still are. Backbone of modern music? Jazz, rock n' roll, the Blues Scale? Us. Irrigation? Us. Astronomy? Us. First iron-smelters? Us. Earliest expressions of realism in art? Us. Picasso was inspired by West African artworks. Us. Embalming? Us. Alchemy? Us. Flying machinery? Us. First successful Caesarian Section? Us. First successful cataracts? Us. The Greeks transplanted all the knowledge the Kemites ("Egyptians") and Kushites gave them; Religion, architecture and science, and that is the source of the Western World. Yet you claim everything our ancestors did was done by aliens.
White People: But, like, slavery isn't new to human history.
Black People: It's the only time in history that worldwide slavery was inflicted across an entire *creed* of people spanning a continent large enough to swallow some of the world's largest countries, displacing and destroying these people for centuries. Our blood and labor is the backbone of the modern world.
Black People: Yeah. OH.

I need to reblog this again to point out just why I love this particular picture so. That thing he’s holding? Yeah that’s a roll of packing tape in a plastic holder. That’s a thoroughly mundane, inarguably ‘modern’ artifact. Let me tell you why that’s important.
Many of the most famous and ‘iconic’ vintage photos of NDNs are from the body of work of Edward Curtis. You probably recognize some of them:



Thing is, Edward Curtis was a fucking lying liar about NDN lives.

Curtis documented some aspects of the customs and lifestyles of American Indians of the trans-Mississippi West. The publication of Curtis’s work, highly romanticized and most craftily staged, exerted a major influence on the image of Indians in popular culture. Curtis is reported to have retouched some of the photographs in order to remove modern objects, adding to the popular illusion of Native Americans as a primitive people.


VS

Yeah, see how that second photo is deliberately sepia-toned and how the clock between the two individuals has been removed because it’s ‘too modern’? Fuck that shit.

That image up there is of a child in full tradition regalia…carrying a roll of tape. Because that child exists today in the modern world where tape is a thing. That regalia exists -today- and is not a ‘historical costume’. My love for that image is the same as my love for things like this traditional elk hide hand drum painted to look like Captain America’s shield by NDN Etsy Artist JBear:

Or this kid in Superman Powwow Regalia:

(Photo of Brandon B at the Red Paint Powwow by R. Lohr)
Because NDNs are modern, living people influenced by modern pop culture. It’s what makes things like traditionally-beaded sneakers so awesome:

(Beaded sneakers made by Elizabeth Doxtater, Mohawk)
We are here, living -today-. Sometimes we own clocks and carry tape and reference cheesy summer movies and wear sneakers. And when we do these things, they are NDN things.

omg the superman. omg.

Wanted to boost this again.  I definitely believe that whole Koni deserves to be brought to justice, The Daily What was 100% right in saying that just like taking out Osama bin Laden didn’t end terrorism, taking out Joseph Koni won’t end the violence and other problems facing Uganda, Congo, and Southern Sudan.  We can, however, offer help and support to victims and those who are trying to move the region in a positive direction.

also, re: grammys, did anyone know that they removed a lot of categories including latin music and world music

A+ grammys

you have people in your own industry pissed at you for this

This is my friend Chelsi. She’s one of the sweetest girls you’ll ever meet, and she’s got family, loads of friends, and a boyfriend who are all worried for her. She went missing yesterday, and she’s now classified as a runaway.. Which is insane because she’s definitely not that type of person..I’m not going to guilt you into reblogging this. I’m going to ask. If you could take 4 seconds and hit reblog, it could cause the right person to see this and bring her home. You’d want this to spread too, if this was your friend, or your sister, or your daughter.Please just reblog this. I promise it won’t hurt your blog’s reputation. We just want her home. Thank you.
