"Curing AIDS? Shit, that’s like Cadillac making a car that lasts for 50 years. And you know they can do it, but they ain’t going to do nothing that fucking dumb. Shit, they got metal on the Space Shuttle that can go around the Moon and withstand temperatures of up to 20,000 degrees, you mean to tell me you don’t think they can make an El Dorado with a fuckin’ bumper that don’t fall off?"
- Chris Rock (“Bigger and Blacker”, 1999)
—Marie Antoinette (2006)
Just so everyone is clear, the handsome Black man tutoring Marie Antoinette is Joseph Boulogne, classical musician extraordinaire whose work influenced Mozart’s. This has been your Western music history tidbit of the day. Adieu!

i am too busy making blood.
Live tweet from a witness to the shooting who was living in an apartment right in front of the scene. This is heartbreaking to read and made me really emotional so I warn those reading to take heed. Read from bottom to top and the pictures are in order (The one with the arrows is a conversation where he states Brown was shot approximately 7 times, two in the back and 5 after turning around exactly like other witness accounts) Spread like wildfire.

I’m so excited to live in a time where the internet has allowed young woc to create a brand and name for themselves and also connect them to other people who understand their vision. I see many many women booming in web-entrepreneurship that later put them on the map: bloggers, natural hair experts, writers, photographers and designers, etc.
I first saw that with Kesh, who was once just a girl from London who loved to shop at vintage stores and produce artwork, now her eye is on everyone’s tits and ass. It’s crazy. I get so inspired.
Fucking get it, Sarah Nicole François! You’ve inspired me and so many others.
this is great commentary! thank you so much for the love, I’mhella excited about it too, this is the reason I stan so hard for the internet, the opportunities are so endless if you learn how to utilize it in your favor. We don’t necessarily need to ask permission or wait for anyone to make room for us, we have to tools to make a space of our own and I live for it! It is revolutionary for women like us.
