Anderson Cooper saving a boy in Haiti during a shooting. A slab of concrete was dropped of the boys head.

Anderson fucking Cooper, everyone. 
Some journalists like to be strictly observers. they don’t intervene, they don’t participate. they just document what they see, even if what they see is terrible. But the way I see it, journalists don’t exist in a vacuum. They are human beings, living and working in a very human environment. And that humanity is essential in relating to their stories. When you lose your humanity, you lose any kind of journalistic integrity you have left.

Anderson Cooper.  Apparently another example of how to correctly be a rich person.

OH MY GOD.  Childhood joy.  I realize this won’t mean anything to most of you, but the original MegaRace was one of my favorite DOS games as a young kid.  Probably the best part about is was the ridiculous over-the-top game show host character, Lance Boyle.  (What a name, right?)

So here I am, innocently watching nostalgic YouTube videos about DOS games, when MegaRace comes up. Hey right on!  But wait… what’s this… a comment from LANCE HIMSELF!?  Must be a throwaway joke account.  BUT NO, IT’S NOT.  It’s the original actor that played him, Christian Erikson, marketing a reboot for the series!  My mind has exploded.

I had said to myself only a few moments prior, “man, I wish they’d make a reboot of this series.”  It’s like they KNEW.  Nostalgiagasm.  

Also, this is quite possibly the best example of nostalgia-driven target marketing I’ve ever seen.  Bravo, Zoom-Platform.  Mad props for getting the original actor and having him drop comments on related videos in character - brilliant.  They knew I’d respond to that.  ;)  It’s also pretty awesome that he’s been responding to nearly all the comments in the marketing videos in character, too - way to keep the small but dedicated fan base even more hooked.  

Sure as hell got me!  100% chance that I’m buying this when it comes out.

Reasons (not) to trust Apple’s privacy promises

mostlysignssomeportents:

Apple’s new Ios privacy policy makes some bold promises about their technology’s wiretap-resistance, saying that even if Apple wanted to snoop on your messages, they couldn’t, but as EFF co-founder John Gilmore points out, Apple’s asking you to take an awful lot on faith here.

Hohoho…

#Repost from @junglebarbiejulia FULL STORY. On the night of August 10 2013 I went to DC for my birthday to go to “Park Place”, an upscale restaurant. Upon my arrival at the entrance, at 11:30pm, before going to stand in the very long line I went to ask a patrolling officer where a nearby restroom was and before I could utter the words, I was met with an elbow and a right punch to my face. I was instantly knock out. My police report (which has changed numerous times this year) say I was arrest and processed at 1:50 am which is 2 hours that I was unaccounted for. I was left on the floor and when I woke up I was bleeding in multiple places with drag marks on my toes, my wrist were cut by the cuffs, the back of my head and arms were lumpy. The officers wouldn’t tell me why I was in jail and I overheard them saying what should we charge her with? We can’t say domestic, we don’t know who she is with. After pleading and begging to go to the hospital, I was met with more hostility before they finally let me go to the hospital the next days upon my release I had a rape kit done because I don’t know any thing that happened to me while knocked out and it came back positive for semen. They sent messages from my phone while I was detained. Internal Affairs came and confiscated my clothing (they never returned them) and they stole my rape kit. As of today I am facing charges for fighting a bouncer outside of the Lima Club, I was never there and its 5 minutes away from Park driving, also 5 officers that responded after I punched the manager to I was apparently Mike Tyson because when I woke up in jail I had the strength and gumption to fight some more officers in there. When the video was requested both clubs said they lost them. They follow me and stalk my home to this day, I have caught DC police trying to get in my home when they thought I had left, even the Baltimore cops help protect them, one in the rape department even asked me out on a date while my face was still battered. I have been trying to tell my story on IG only to find that police officers or this hired by then have been spamming my hashtag #justiceforjulia with blasphemous pictures. Please share her story.

Tonight,

thatswayhaze:

I saw two beautiful young women kiss while wearing wedding dresses. The two were very in love. This kinda thing is totally normal other than the fact that I live in a super conservative area in Tennessee and we were at cookout(a late night fast food restaurant) at 3am. There were more than 50 people in this tiny restaurant and as they were leaving someone finally asked if they had just got married.

They had. They were both total babes. They kissed and 50+ drunken college kids hollered and wooed and cheered. I would put money on me being the loudest of the bunch.

I’m sure many were wooing for all the wrong reasons but it was still super nice to have that kinda thing be met with joyous applause as opposed to the judgmental looks and jeers I’m used to.

Tennessee is slowly but surely getting cooler. I’m glad I could witness it and I hope I can stick it out until it truly becomes a place free of judgement that accepts people of all backgrounds, sexual orientations and mindsets.

More than anything I just want a love that I can plant a frencher on in a fast food dining room at 330 in the morning and have that glorious act of love be met with nothing more than the hoots and hollers of ecstatic strangers who are overjoyed with our newly concreted nuptials.

Peace and love. The future is here.

Well.  Maybe there’s some hope for this crazy place, after all.

Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2) 

Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace

Police of Ferguson, you shame us all.
