Okay last one I swear. This was *awesome*. I am particularly enthralled with this portrayal of black *life/personhood/experience* that I feel like I rarely if ever see in film. Blackness seems to be presented in a very narrow realm when it comes to mass consumption; if we were to believe the media we are most often exposed to, there are only a few different types of black people that exist in the world, a concept which is untrue, unrealistic, and unfair. This short film not only turns that notion on it’s head, but it’s also shot beautifully, and the music is excellent.

i have boxes of these FULL… they’re still in my parents’ basement carefully packed away since the mid-eighties. i imagine a glorious glow, like indiana jones finding the ark, when i open those boxes again. hopefully with less snakes.

I, too, have boxes of these at my parents’ house …

I had (some of) these as a kid, along with the track that you could form into loops, etc. and me and my friends loved playing with them

Syrian Terracotta ‘Conestoga’ Covered Wagons, c. 2000-1600 BC


These simple ceramic vehicles reflect the distinctive moment when men first used domesticated animals to draw wheeled vehicles, thus beginning powered transport on land.  Probably drawn by a pair of bovids, these wagon models may have been intended for cult use, or as grave gifts, to be left in shrines, sacred caches, or tombs. Although drawings of wheeled vehicles occur all over Eurasia, this seminal development in human culture probably originated in Mesopotamia or the Russian Steppes in the late 3rd millennium BC.

Benefit Politics

tomewing:

Analysis as a coping mechanism for political fuckery, part N.

So. The Tories have successfully created a bogeyman in people’s minds: the feckless benefit scrounger bleeding the state dry and squandering the taxes of “hard working families”.

It’s classic “deserving poor vs undeserving poor” stuff, and there’s little point in denying that it’s worked. Polls suggest a lot of people still want benefits cut. The Tories’ emotive language on this is backed up by a series of examples, both national - the “benefits bought me a mansion” type of stories the Daily Mail loves - and local - most people will say they ‘know of’ families on the fiddle. So the policies get harsher and harsher.

And yet Tory polls are flatlined. The Tories face an opposition with little charisma or fight, but they can’t gain any ground. Austerity simply hasn’t been a vote-winner, however people feel about benefits.
