There’s this cat at my local shelter that looks exactly like Nicolas Cage, which I think is as good a reason as any to adopt a pet.

A lot of my free time has been taken up by various projects and building my website, so I apologize for the lack of posts! All of you lovely followers deserved another Daft Punk comic, so I did my best.

July 22nd 2011: Norway terror attacks

On this day in 2011, the 7/22 attacks occurred in Oslo and Utøya, Norway. In Oslo, a car bomb was set off near prominent government buildings killing eight people and injuring 209. The second attack under two hours later in Utøya took place at a Norwegian Labour Party (the ruling party) youth summer camp on the island. There, a gunman killed 69 and injured 110. Four days after the devastating events, 150,000 Norwegians gathered in Oslo carrying roses in memory of those who were killed in the attacks. Anders Behring Breivik, a right-wing extremist, was arrested on Utøya island and subsequently found guilty of both attacks. The brutal attacks were the deadliest in Norway since World War Two and three years on we remember all of the 77 victims of this senseless violence.

"Evil can kill a human being but never defeat a people"
- Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg after the attacks

this is your periodic reminder that old-timey medicines did not fuck around

Yeah that’d probably handle a cough.

CHLOROFORM?!

That’ll do it.

Back when medicine was a party in a bottle.

This week we started the Victorian era in summer camp.  I had to explain early-modern medicine to the 7 to 11-year-olds without discussing heroin or vibrators.  The struggle was real.

I love how people reference medical documents from this era as proof that corsets cause harm to people. *facepalm*

Are you fucking kidding me? Like, no, Shakespeare wouldn’t tweet a sonnet cause 140 characters is a bit short for that. Wrong medium. But you know what he would have? A very active twitter FULL OF DICK PUNS AND YOUR MOM JOKES okay. (And probably also a blog for the sonnets and longer works, that cross-posts links to twitter anyway.)

Get out of here with that pretentious anti-technology bullshit.

lmao what is it even trying to get at like of course he never tweeted a sonnet, computers didn’t exist?? This is so weird

Moses didn’t tweet the ten commandments either but I’m fairly certain that’s because javascript isn’t supported on stone tablets.

Acting takes you out of your comfort zone. It can be hard but if you love doing it, you do it.

Forgotten Rebellion: Black Seminoles and the Largest Slave Revolt in U.S. History

The story of John Horse and the Black Seminoles has been largely untold, but they deserve to be remembered for a number of reasons: 

  • They created the largest haven in the U.S. South for runaway slaves.
  • They led the largest slave revolt in U.S. history.
  • They secured the only emancipation of rebellious slaves prior to the U.S. Civil War.
  • The formed the largest mass exodus of slaves across the United States and, ultimately, to Mexico.

"… and to you, if you have stuck with Harry until the very end."

Here’s to book seven. Here’s to the years of anticipation before it and the years of discussion in its wake. Here’s to the boy who lived and how he changed everything.

And here’s to you, if you know that “the very end” isn’t happening anytime soon.

We are book eight.
