Arrived at our b&b.. Had mild food poisoning because of something I ate in the afternoon. I can count on one hand how many times I’ve thrown up in the last ten years. Twice now. With tonight being the second time. Feel great now though.
I’m off to France!

Do yourself a favor and watch this vid instantly, because HOLY CRAP, from the first moment I saw a section I was all, OK, so Marvel was just a warm-up? This vid blows me away so hard. I have rarely seen any vid that so effectively does first person POV, that really puts you inside a character’s head like this one does. It’s such a cool experience, whether you’re a fan of Tony or not.
My bachelor paper is finiiiiiiiiished!!! Now hopefully they like it. I like it. But I don’t think it’s very good. I’m just glad it’s over.
Extrait Tous les mêmes
i’ve seen a lot of people reblogging news from ferguson, wondering if the situation has changed at all. the answer is YES—massively! so i thought i would compile some updates, courtesy of alderman antonio french (who, less than 24 hours ago, was being [wrongfully] held in jail for alleged unlawful assembly). the time right now is 4:20AM CST, august 15th.
yesterday afternoon—thursday, august 14th—ferguson & stl police were taken out of control of ferguson and replaced with MO highway patrol, led by captain ron johnson, who grew up in the area. his first order of business was to order police to remove their masks and cease violent tactics.
orange cones replaced tanks, the police line vanished, not a drop of tear gas was in sight and families felt safe enough to have their young people out protesting with them. without the fear tactics and police intimidation, people came out in droves to support ferguson.
the discussion of mike brown cannot end here. the relief is palpable and the decrease of tension under johnson’s excellent leadership is a huge mercy, but justice has not been served yet. now, hopefully, citizens will get to work together with the legal system for swift and transparent justice for mike brown & the countless other black men & women across the nation who have been unlawfully treated, and in many cases died, at the hands of police. let all of us use the alleviated atmosphere to focus the conversation, focus the nation. #mikebrown
