As always, the inimitable  +Eleanor Margolis cuts through all our rather pointless "feel good" moral indignation to make a great point.

h/t to +Saffy Juice for introducing Eleanor's writing out here.
To those boycotting Dolce & Gabbana: are we really looking to an industry that uses child labour, torments women and ignores ethnic minorities to lead the fight for moral justice?

Western consumtion is what is making us, soon out of emerging markets to invest in....

Just look at the African economies... And they are now making their own oportunities, like true entrepreneurs.

Cultural marxcist boycotts is not what has built their now exploding midleclass, that now is fueling their own markets, with their own needs. :D

Thirteen lines...just thirteen lines delivered from King Lear to his daughter Cordelia...a searing rebuke that in a mere minute or two destroys a lifetime of mutual love, and drives an emotional stake into the heart of an innocent:

Let it be so; thy truth, then, be thy dower:
For, by the sacred radiance of the sun,
The mysteries of Hecate, and the night;
By all the operation of the orbs
From whom we do exist, and cease to be;
Here I disclaim all my paternal care,
Propinquity and property of blood,
And as a stranger to my heart and me
Hold thee, from this, for ever. The barbarous Scythian,
Or he that makes his generation messes
To gorge his appetite, shall to my bosom
Be as well neighbour'd, pitied, and relieved,
As thou my sometime daughter.

Seems as though I have come to know so many people out here who have experienced that exact kind of pain firsthand. I am constantly amazed not only at your strength and resilience...your ability to endure...but also by your incredible capacity for compassion...to reach out and comfort those who are in pain, even though the people closest to you turned their backs and never deigned to give you the same consideration.

It's people like all of you who quietly persevere, never seeking out attention or praise for your inner strength. I dearly hope, however, that each and every one of you realizes that you ARE admired, you ARE appreciated, and very much cherished.

So in love with this woman's voice since watching the documentary "20 Feet from Stardom"! Amazing how both powerful and ethereal her voice can be...love watching the old clips of her and Mick singing this live...but this is the version I have on constant play on my drive home from work to calm me down from a long tiring shift.

Never let it be said I don't have any Christmas spirit. You can tell the little guy is classy as hell because he went with the creamy instead of the chunky.

I prefer chunky. Suppose that means I lack class.

For those of you who haven't yet discovered the awesomesauce that is Serial, I can't recommend it enough. From the same people that produce This American Life it's a single in-depth story that's explored each week in a new chapter. Give it a listen if you get a chance. :-)
A potential alibi surfaces … and then disappears again, at the worst possible time for Adnan’s case.

Oh +Eleanor Margolis you never fail to make me snort out loud!

 _If Hitler could be resurrected for no purpose other than to watch this video, I'm certain that he'd simultaneously shit, vomit and cry. What we have here is pretty rare: a piece of art that's offensive to absolutely everyone. If there's one thing bound to unite neo-Nazis and Jews, it's hatred of this video._

Technically, the same thing. Fifty Shades started life as a piece of Twilight fan fiction.

A little inspiration for you +Obi Debo...this is NOT, I repeat NOT a photograph...it's Sensazioni, one of the amazing photorealism pencil on paper drawings by Diego Fazio (aka DiegoKoi)...approximately 200 hours of work went into it. Here's a link to his DeviantArt page: http://diegokoi.deviantart.com/

No time for lunch today...just grabbing a sandwich on the run, but wanted to send out a humongous hug and congratulations to the lovely Mistress Monochrome +Raven Lockwood and the divine Goddess +Saffy Juice on being together two years. Despite a few potholes along the road of life, I can think of NO couple who seems as perfectly suited as the two of you. I can't imagine one without the other. Enjoy your day!!! xo

This is lovely to get in from a wonderful day out shopping ending with fine dining to see.
Thank you Jamie for all you've done as our number one fan. Much love sent your way from the both of us, but you know that anyway x

Sometimes I just want to repeatedly punch myself in the face when my Christian friends admit that yes, they realize the stories in Genesis like Noah's Ark and Adam & Eve are just fiction that were intended to help people make sense of a world they didn't understand.  But then, in the same breath, they're adamant in their belief that "God sent his only son to die for our original sin."

Yeah, the exact same original sin that happened when Eve fed Adam the apple from the forbidden tree because the talking snake told her to. I mean, seriously, if you don't believe in Adam & Eve, how do you possibly still hold on to the idea of original sin? I seriously don't get it?!?!
