Go there, and do as the instructions say.
When my art was stolen, I got the post reported, and it was taken down. Don’t worry, it doesn’t just take down the sources post, but it takes down all the reblogged posts too.
Please give this a reblog, many artists out there may not know this is here.
And remember, ask permission before sharing, or don’t post it.

"Know How" - Official Trailer

"Know How," the first-ever, feature film written and acted by youth in foster care. Their lives. Their stories. Their voices. Directed by Juan Carlos Piñeiro Escoriaza. It stars Joshua Elijah Adams, Deshawn Brown, Niquana Clark, Michael Kareem Dew, Gabrielle Garcia, Ainsley Henry, Gilbert Howard, Lee Jimenez, Claribelle Pagan, and Ebonee Simpson.

A film written and acted by foster care youth ripped from the stories of their lives. Five youth’s worlds interweave as they confront loss, heartbreak, and come of age in this tale about transience and perseverance. Addie struggles to graduate from high school while her best friend Marie loses her grandmother. Megan copes with being taken from her abusive family and faces the harsh reality of living in a residential treatment center. All the while Eva works to be mother to her sister while their father falls deeper into a crack addiction. Finally, there’s Austin who’s living on the street with his brother; barely able to feed himself. All of them must decide to survive or else fall victim to a broken system.

We’re aiming to get 10,000 views of our KNOW HOW TRAILER before our World Premiere on March 8th! We already have 1,246 in one day!

بل مش مش: bell hooks on Hipsters

urban-prairie-blues:

oh-forsure:

‘Whereas mournful imperialist nostalgia constitutes the betrayed and abandoned world of the Other as an accumulation of lack and loss, contemporary longing for the “primitive” is expressed by the projection onto the Other of a sense of plenty, bounty, a field of dreams. […] Masses of young people dissatisfied by U.S. imperialism, unemployment, lack of economic opportunity, afflicted by the postmodern malaise of alienation, no sense of grounding, no redemptive identity, can be manipulated by cultural strategies that offer Otherness as appeasement, particularly through commodification. The contemporary crises of identity in the west, especially as experienced by white youth, are eased when the “primitive” is recouped via a focus on diversity and pluralism which suggests the Other can provide life-sustaining alternatives. Concurrently, diverse ethnic/racial groups can also embrace this sense of specialness, that histories and experience once seen as worthy only of disdain can be looked upon with awe.’

— bell hooks, Eating the Other

bell hooks wrote this in 1992 - it still remains the most accurate and succinct description of the hipster phenomena I have read to date. Among other things, it explains: Cultural Appropriation (headdresses, feathers, bindis, etc.); the tendency of environmental activists/vegans to romanticize the fuck out of native relationships with “Mother Gaia”; hipsters who romanticize and fetishize mixed race folk; hipsters with trust funds who make sure to dress like they just got off a rail-cart in Rajput, dust sprayed over their faces and clothes torn like they have been forced to live “on the streets” for years; hipsters who think they are being oh-so-transgressive by fucking racialized and marginalized Others. Etc, Etc, Etc. 

dead on. also: middle class crusties and anarchists searching for a mythic “authentic” life through self-imposed pseudo-poverty. it’s a confused and depoliticized reaction to the (genuine) banality and alienation of late-capitalist society, filtered through petty-bourgeois selfishness + individualism and a privileged refusal to engage with actual politics that can only come from not having a stake in anything. toxic fucking people.

Beili Liu - The Mending Project (2011)

“…Hundreds of Chinese scissors suspended from the ceiling in a shimmery cloud. The piece involved the artist sitting at a small black table, hand-mending patches of fabric together which visitors were encouraged to cut themselves near the entrance. As the performance continued, the piece grew as one continuous cloth and lay spread on the floor.  

The hovering mass of the downward-pointed scissors represent the distant fear and looming violence present in today’s cultural climate. The sharp blades above the artist are put in contrast by the silent and simple act of mending. The dichotomous result of the instant fear superimposed with the calming effect of the sewing created a surreal atmosphere in the room.”
