I’m doing an angry little hopping-up-and-down dance that you can’t see but rest assured that I did it.

Because I’ve noticed that when someone white people appropriate shit from POC/indigenous/etc. cultures and decide to be asshats about it, their defense INEVITABLY includes some variation on: BUT THE ANCIENT CELTS WORE BINDIS/HAD DREADLOCKS/HAD SPIRIT ANIMALS/BWAHHHHH I’M A CELT LEAVE ME ALONE

like, where the fuck are you getting all of this information on Iron Age/Bronze Age Celtic European cultures because I can think of a few universities that would sure as fuck like to mine your sources, wow, look at ALL OF THESE FACTS WE DIDN’T KNOW BEFORE. 

WHY IS IT ALWAYS THE CELTS? also who gives a flying fuck? also no, you are probably not nurturing a deep and respectful connection to the spirit of Vercingetorix. Just shut up. 

[this doesn’t apply to reconstructionists, just to assholes who use THE CELTS to defend their bullshit.]

stop making shit up. stop. just stop.

BUT THE CELTS— is the pseudointellectual version of BUT I HAVE A BLACK FRIEND.

Academia and fandom should learn from this rant… and probably hipsters too. weirdsociology: where have you been hiding this delightful person?

“Walgreens, Pfizer, Medtronic and some other big American companies are working on a tax trick known as inversion. By acquiring or merging with a foreign company — the inversion — big companies can reduce or eliminate federal and state taxes on profits in the U.S. The latest inversions have drawn a lot of criticism, even from sources usually considered cheerleaders for big business. “Positively Un-American,” declared Fortune magazine’s latest cover, while its story inside expressed revulsion at these moves. Inversions, if not stopped, will spread. When Congress last enacted laws to thwart these moves in 2002, in part because of my reporting on an earlier round of inversions, I warned that the new laws included loopholes. As predicted, the inversion problem is back and could cause serious damage to both our economy and the rule of law.”

Road Trip!

Here ye, here ye:

I need suggestions for audio books and perhaps amusing podcasts to keep me company during my 1400 mile journey to the Southwest.

Thank you.

“I want to throw my hands in the air, after reading a mean Twitter comment, and say, “All right! You got it. You figured me out. I’m not pretty. I’m not thin. I do not deserve to use my voice. I’ll start wearing a burqa and start waiting tables at a pancake house. All my self-worth is based on what you can see.” But then I think, Fuck that.”
From Amy Schumer’s Ms. Gala speech. It’s amazing how so many women I know, including myself, have come from such fucked up boy beginnings. Please read the entire thing.  (via emilyvgordon)

CEMENT ECLIPSES @ CHIAPAS MEXICO

Artist Isaac Cordal (tumblr / facebook) - “With the simple act of miniaturization and thoughtful placement, Isaac Cordal magically expands the imagination of pedestrians finding his sculptures on the street. Cement Eclipses is a critical definition of our behavior as a social mass. The art work intends to catch the attention on our devalued relation with the nature through a critical look to the collateral effects of our evolution. With the master touch of a stage director, the figures are placed in locations that quickly open doors to other worlds. The scenes zoom in the routine tasks of the contemporary human being”.
