Also: Despite want pro-lifers want you to think, a six week fetus is smaller than a raisin an bears no human resemblance whatsoever. (To the left: what they want you to think a zygote looks like at six weeks. To the right: what it actually looks like. Don’t ever let anyone guilt you into ANYTHING, you hear me? Ever.)
Marcus Burke, author of Team Seven and a former college athlete, learned from Carter G. Woodson that teaching yourself is just as important as being taught in the classroom.
March’s theme is Hidden and in honor of the theme our Chicago chapter is having Matthew Hoffman speak. You might have heard about his You Are Beautiful Project, a little sticker that started a worldwide phenomenon. Pictured is a double sided entrance piece to the Miller Beach community in Gary, Indiana. Find out more. →

ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)
I’m not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit when I saw the trailer.
I’m sooo excited for this… cheese fest and all!
this is so freaking adorable and yes i cried. I can’t wait.
I CAN’T WAIT
So I’ll probably get slammed for this (because, tumblr) but here goes anyway. Ask box is open, slam away.
When the original Little Orphan Annie was written, chronologically we were a lot closer to a time where there was a strong bias against Irish people. By making Annie red haired, it was implied that she was of Irish descent, and by extension, the audience would have inherently known that was part of the bias against her.
Changing Annie’s race to African American replicates this same dynamic in modern society, and that’s a big part of why so many people were upset by it. A BLACK orphan?! Nooooooo, keep her white and red haired and cute I DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH HOW THIS IS MAKING ME UNCOMFORTABLE.
Casting Annie as black in 2014 is a much more true to the original character than casting her as a caucasian red head.
THIS IS ALL SHADES OF PERFECT
I thought that was going to make me angry, but instead I gave a little cheer and reblogged this as fast as I could.
I AM SO READY! I am crying so many happy tears! Yes yes yes! I can’t wait to go see this!
Sound installation by Alex Allmont uses old LEGO to create a machine to generate electronic music - video embedded below:
Play house is an automata that mechanically computes and performs hooky and hypnotic acid house. Like a generative musical loom, a single drive turns a sequence of LEGO gears, levers and latches that mutate riffs and rhythm patterns. These are played out on analogue drums and synthesisers from the halcyon days of 1980’s dance music while the machine gradually shifts the timbre and space of the sound. In the piece the process of creation is laid bare so one can indulge in picking apart the interactions driving the score, seeing sound as it changes in sculpture, exploring our expectations in music, or simply rocking out to some fruity acid.
