360 Book In a Cheese by Yusuke Oono
è che certe volte bisogna solo farsene una ragione.
c’è che tu provi ad avvicinarti a qualcuno e una, due, volte vieni gentilmente rimbalzato.
magari non è il momento,
magari ha dei pensieri per la testa,
magari non sei tu,
magari sei tu,
fatto sta che il risultato è un innocente,
probabilmente non pianificato rimbalzo.
e l’unica cosa che puoi fare è decidere se provare una altra volta
dare fiducia al caso, curarti il livido e
Per andare dove vuoi tu, devi capire come farlo col vento che c’è e che non puoi cambiare."

ci sono certi veli di tristezza che ti piombano addosso tutti d’un colpo.
che l’unica soluzione è andare a letto e sperare di dormire
Marissa Alexander. Never forget that she was in a domestically violent relationship with a man that admitted (in an affidavit) to abusing all of his babies’ moms. Never forget that there was an existing restraining order against him. Never forget that he beat her while she was pregnant. Never forget that she had given birth only a few days before all of this. Never forget that she fired the warning shot into the ceiling, not injuring nor killing anyone. Never forget that the so-called “plea” offered to her included 3 years of jail and losing custody of her child. Never forget that despite having a concealed weapon’s license and knowing how to use the gun, following all laws, and trying to protect herself from a repeatedly abusive man, she still was sentenced to twenty years in prison.
Self-defense doesn’t apply to cis heterosexual Black women like Marissa Alexander fighting off domestically violent men. Self defense doesn’t apply to Black trans women like Cece McDonald when fighting off strangers. People we once loved or complete strangers have no obligation to consider our lives valuable and we have no legal claim to protect said life. This is the reality of White supremacist capitalist patriarchy and its outgrowth pustule that is the criminal justice system and prison industrial complex. Black women are the fastest growing group of incarcerated people. Many of them are there for charges related to men and self-defense, related to poverty or to both. In Marissa’s case, she had a Master’s degree. Why does this matter? Because the myth that respectability politics/class/income can save or protect us is at hand, again. It cannot protect us.

London-based Zaha Hadid, widely regarded as one of the leading lights in the constellation of avant-garde architecture, has likewise become a superstar in China, where her latest designs radiate out through architecture schools and studios across the country. On a recent trip to Beijing, 15,000 artists, architects and other fans swarmed to a talk she gave for the opening of the futuristic Galaxy SOHO complex — just one of 11 projects she is designing across the country.
But the appeal of the Prtizker Prize winner’s experimental architecture, especially since the unveiling of her glowing, crystalline Guangzhou Opera House two years ago, has expanded so explosively that a contingent of pirate architects and construction teams in southern China is now building a carbon copy of one of Hadid’s Beijing projects.
What’s worse, Hadid said in an interview, she is now being forced to race these pirates to complete her original project first."

For the past eight years, I’ve been making a television show called NO RESERVATIONS. I wrote it. I executive produced it. And I appeared in it. My partners and I always tried hard to make it good.
During that time, I understood the way…
When Hurricane Sandy knocked nearly all of Hoboken, New Jersey straight off the power grid for a few days, 11-year-old Lucy Walkowiak—whose power stayed on throughout the storm—stepped up and did something totally awesome. She built a popup Internet cafe!
(Her father, Steve, helped. He works here at Newsweek.)
Lucy joined Good Morning America via Skype (!), whose hosts gave a nice big round of applause, to say, “I was just happy to help all of the people without power in my community, because so many people don’t have power, and we were one of the lucky ones.” She explained she just wanted to help people charge up their electronics so they could contact their loved ones and keep in touch with the world.
Lucy = today’s nwktumblr spirit animal.
