So basically this blog has been infiltrated by some mysterious “third party” that’s somehow managed to install ads on my blog. This was done against my will and I’m not even getting money for it, motherfuckers. I was thinking it could be something like my stat tracker but I’ve been using that for at least half a year so I don’t know why ads would mysteriously pop up now because of that. I saw that the ads came from this company called Text Enhance and I contacted them but never received a reply. ASSHOLES!!!!
It sounds petty but I love this blog because it’s a collection of all kinds of shit that’s interested me from the last year and a half. But I cannot deal with these fucking ads! I’m pretty outraged that some asshole company installed ads on a blog that’s mainly personal and hardly visited by anyone, without anyone’s fucking consent!! Exclamation points!!!
So I’ve decided to change the name of this blog and make a new one with the usual name. If you actually follow me because you like what I post (in other words you don’t just follow me because my internet-famous sister recommended my blog) please follow me there.
My new blog:

UC Berkeley scientists have developed a system to capture visual activity in human brains and reconstruct it as digital video clips. Eventually, this process will allow you to record and reconstruct your own dreams on a computer screen.
Soon I will explore my realm of dreams.
O_O THAT would be the best thing ever.
holy mother of god
I feel like this is normal vs. Eagle Vision in Assassin’s Creed right now. @@;
that’d be a bit scary, but really cool at the same time
I HAVE WISHED FOR STUFF LIKE THIS
Think about how much easier this will make making movies in the future.
All you have to do is just think about the movie. you dont need actors or anything!
Science is rad.
Everyone needs to read this book.
Learn about the system that lead us to this injustice.
[image: cover of Nell Irvin Painter’s “The History of White People”. graphic is a black circle, the text inside in white. the circle is surrounded by white.]
the one star reviews on amazon by indignant white people are enough to convince me to buy it.
My favorite review: “Painter’s “A History of White People” is not really a history, it’s a review of literature from ancient Greece to modern times.” WHAT DID THEY EXPECT. AN ACTUAL HISTORY ON WHITE PEOPLE? LULZ
“A Man Was Lynched Yesterday”
The NAACP (National Organization for the Advancement of Colored People) would hang a banner from its offices in New York City the day after these horrible events to alert people of the city to what had happened.
This Is All Kinds Of Wrong of the Day: In 1991, Troy Davis was convicted of murdering off-duty policeman Mark MacPhail in parking lot in Savannah, Georgia, and sentenced to die.
As no physical evidence connected Davis to the crime, and a murder weapon was never found, the conviction was entirely based on the testimony of nine witnesses, seven of whom have since recanted all or part of sworn statements.
Several of the witnesses said they were pressured by police officers to place the blame on Davis, while ten new witnesses have since come forward to say Sylvester “Redd” Coles — the man who reported Davis to the cops — was the real murderer.
Despite a slew of doubts concerning his guilty, Davis is on course to be executed Wednesday night at 7 PM by lethal injection. The Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles today denied his request for clemency, even after hearing from a juror in Davis’s trial who said the verdict could no longer be trusted.
A last-ditch effort to prevent Davis — who has had three previous stays of executions — from being put to death is underway, but many fear Davis’s legal avenues have unjustly reached a dead end.
US actor Danny Glover, who plans an epic next year on Haitian independence hero Toussaint-Louverture, said he slaved to raise funds for the movie because financiers complained there were no white heroes.
“Producers said ‘It’s a nice project, a great project… where are the white heroes?’” he told the press during a stay in Paris this month for a seminar on film.
“I couldn’t get the money here, I couldn’t get the money in Britain. I went to everybody. You wouldn’t believe the number of producers based in Europe, and in the States, that I went to,” he said.
D”The first question you get, is ‘Is it a black film?’ All of them agree, it’s not going to do good in Europe, it’s not going to do good in Japan.
“Somebody has to prove that to be a lie!”, he said. “Maybe I’ll have the chance to prove it.”
“Toussaint,” Glover’s first project as film director, is about Francois Dominique Toussaint Louverture (1743-1803), a former slave and one of the fathers of Haiti’s independence from France in 1804, making it the first black nation to throw off imperial rule and become a republic.
The uprising he led was bloodily put down in 1802 by 20,000 soldiers dispatched to the Caribbean by Napoleon Bonaparte, who then re-established slavery after its ban by the leaders of the French Revolution.
Due to be shot in Venezuela early next year, the film will star Don Cheadle, Mos Def, Wesley Snipes and Angela Bassett.
What?! This movie looks awesome, so watching it.
I’ve had that happen before, but I don’t see it when I look at your blog. But yes, I’ve had that happen to me on random web pages.
Weird, I can also see the ads on other computers, and I’ve noticed that when you go to the URL of individual posts the ads don’t show up… ARGH damn you Tumblr!
