I’m re-watching dollhouse.  This is one of the shortest and most beautiful songs I’ve ever heard.  I forgot about it until I heard it in the show again.

I don’t have a someone that I would wish to dream about.  I don’t know if I want a someone. But… the song is still beautiful.  I guess dreams can be too.


Dollhouse season 1, episode 6- “Man on the Street”. This episode made me cry the hardest, because all this poor man wanted was to show his wife the beautiful house that she wanted.

This story in this episode kills me. I both want to condemn what the man is doing and also feel for him because if I could bring Thomas back long enough to have a moment like this (even if it wasn’t necessarily him in his own body), I think I’d take the chance. I understand the ache, but at the same time I don’t want to support this. I’m so conflicted. ;-;


Day 4 - Black History Month - Susie Carmichael

Debuting in the Rugrats episode "Meet The Carmichaels" (1992), Susie was the first (and only) Black Rugrat to join amongst the ranks of Tommy and the gang.

Susie is the complete antithesis of Angelica Pickles. As Angelica would lie and try to frighten the babies daily, Susie would do the opposite. She is very kind and honest with them, giving them facts about real world objects and events that would otherwise be used in Angelica’s devious arsenal of lies.

For her young age, Susie was quite intelligent and gifted. Skilled in ballet dancing, singing, and even being able to speak and understand French. Making her the envy and rival of Angelica.

In the spin-off series, "All Grown Up", it is revealed that Susie now has become fluent in TEN different languages. Which is noted in the episode "Runaround Susie". Her singing and dancing capabilities have increased substantially, upstaging (her “rival”) Angelica in this areas. It is also shown that Susie is an ace student, as well.

Though there aren’t many facts about her, Susie Carmichael’s character proves that Blacks in cartoons can go beyond the stereotypical archetype. She proves that we are capable of so much beyond what we’re typically portrayed as. She is a great character for young Black children to relate to.

11 photos that prove tigers have a softer side
July 29 is International Tiger Day, a holiday that raises awareness of their endangered status and advocates a global system for conserving their natural habitats.
While tigers are known for their striking stripes, massive size, barbed tongues, razor sharp teeth and predatory instinct, it’s also important to recognize how cute and lovable they can be. Here are just a few photos demonstrating the gentle side of these beautiful creatures.

See all the photos.

Some of those photos are really problematic and do nothing to help tigers. In fact, they are detrimental to tiger conservation. 

The first is obviously the white tiger being bottle fed. White tigers are extremely inbred and serve no conservation purpose. It’s such a problem that the AZA bans zoos from breeding them. Due to inbreeding white tigers also suffer from a multitude of health problems. Also have to wonder about the context of why it’s being bottle fed and not with it’s mother. I really hope that isn’t a photo from a cub petting scheme as that’s a whole other problem. 

Secondly there’s an image of a tiger with a very young orangutan. Why are these two together? I get a feeling that photo may have come from the deplorable T.I.G.E.R.S organisation which massively exploit their animals for publicity and profit and do nothing to help conservation. These two species are natural enemies and should never be together, even when young. It is highly unethical and there is simply no need for it. That cub also looks extremely young and shouldn’t be away from it’s mother unless absolutely necessary. 

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH the babehs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Driving through Chickamauga Battlefield always unnerves me. We went on field trips there when I was little and played games to “reenact” the Civil War and that’s great and all, but even in my little kid brain I’m like didn’t people die here? And now that I’m older it feels disrespectful in a way and I feel uneasy driving through there even though everyone else seems to find it to be a peaceful place to drive leisurely through or to have picnics or jogs or go horseback riding. Maybe that’s me being too emotional, but I can’t help but think of what happened there as more than just ghost tours and statues and old canons that kids climb on to take photographs.


That’s something I literally can’t get over. How plantations aren’t viewed as sites of genocide and as representative of some of the most extreme evil humanity has ever done. 

You can visit a plantation and they won’t even talk about slavery. It’s common to get married on plantations.

Being a Californian this was all very off-putting to me when I visited Georgia. I love Black people and Black culture in the South but it’s still the South.

then he became a taxi driver and the person he was driving tapped his shoulder to ask a question and my uncle screamed really loud


I’m sure that’s what he thought.
