If you’re not listening to this you’re fucking up

Facebook has long been the social network of choice for your parents to share image macros, your conservative childhood friends and their heated straw man political arguments, and for regionally-flavored listicles shared ad nauseum (for me, it’s usually a listicle having to do with Florida-based grocery store chain Publix, which admittedly is the best fucking grocery store chain in American history). Users can also scroll and scroll and scroll, often looking at the same status updates dozens of times in one day, and return the next day, and every subsequent day until they die, to do the same thing. It’s great.
Death to US Emo

Chad Wys is a conceptual artist and designer from Illinois.
His paintings are experiments in composition, color, and form. He uses a wide variety of media and often inharmonious color schemes.
His subjects are depicted in unusual colors, but their original context is typically preserved. ‘By retooling the object I intend to add new layers to the the original,’ he says.
This is a picture of three people from the Ferguson city commission.
Remember the story of how Ferguson police beat a man and then charged him with bleeding on their uniforms?
See that woman in the picture?
She was one of the cops who beat him.
Seriously what the fuck.
If you weren’t following #Ferguson on Twitter last night, you missed out. The city commission had a meeting where they tried to tell the people they couldn’t talk, but were eventually shouted down. So the All-White-Except-One city council sat there, gave people three minutes to speak, and said nothing, responded to nothing, and did nothing.
A couple of highlights:
A man arrested for peacefully protesting spoke up and said “I’ve done more jail time than Darren Wilson.”
“If Darren Wilson doesn’t get justice, you might as well bring back the army, because it’s going to be chaos,” said another.
ESPN E60 reportedly had a story about a football player from Ferguson who reported a harassment incident with Darren Wilson a week before Mike Brown. (Looked for more reports of this today and don’t see any. Sent a few messages to journalists who were covering Ferguson.)
Several people talked about how the “justice” system (more like “jüstice” system) in Ferguson routinely harasses and exploits people.
The whole thing seemed very organized, with people telling the council (paraphrased): “You’ve done nothing for us, and that’s why you’ve got a murder on your hands. Now we’re coming for you [meaning the various seats on the council]” with one woman in particular saying to the woman pictured above, “We’re coming for your seat first.”
“I have 3 minutes to tell you I am ashamed of every single one of you.”
OMFG. THIS. SHOW.
weirdly relevant to the question I answered yesterday.
Just repeat to yourself “This isn’t the Olympics, it’s an industry” and go make those comics!!!!!!!!!
WHAT SHOW IS THIS I NEED IT IN MY LIFE
No clue what this show is but this is shockingly good advice
