Ricque Was Here

This is my tumblr page that will consist of all the things I love in this world, enjoy.

Both albums are beautiful.  I give no fucks on how you feel about Coldplay, all I know is that these albums are impressive.  The violin solos, the drums, the organ, every instrument in this album is uniquely crafted to tell a story.  This album has flow, and yes it is a mainstream band, but even for mainstream, this album is just amazing. When I popped this cd in I was taken away by the lyrics, by the sheer artistry that was put into this whole thing.  This is more than the popular song “Viva La Vida”, even though that song is really great.  My favorites are Violet Hill, Yes, Cemeteries of London, 42, Death and all his Friends, and the beautiful opening Life in Technicolor. And then we have Viva La Vida (Prospekt’s March EP) which goes even deeper into what they were trying to create, beauty.  Songs like Life in Technicolor ii bring in words to the wonderful instrumental that opened Viva La Vida, then we go into Postcards from Far Away, and light piano piece, that takes you to where some one Is getting these postcards from some place that they have never been too.  And finally Glass of Water, and Prospekt’s March/ Poppy Fields, so dark and lovely.  If you have not listened to these albums, you truly have missed the hell out. 

The Misogynoir and Silencing Against Black Women Who Speak Out On Street Harassment

gradientlair:

As I mentioned in an announcement post for #YouOkSis and a recent anti-street harassment post #NotJustHello, #YouOkSis (started by Black feminist thinker, writer and social worker @FeministaJones) is a dialogue for Black women to speak openly and freely about the reality of violence in…

I love this.

Giiiiiiirrrrrrllllll byeeeeeeeeee. Got this from Dumbest Tweets tumblr page and I just had to share it again. I mean not only did she spell homosexuals wrong,  but the message is even worse.

Gary Oldman I am disappointed in you.

After reading that shitty ass Gary Oldman article with the shitty ass statements that were racist, homophobic, sexist and just downright awful I have to say that I am disappointed in him. This dude was one of my favorite actors to watch and now I am sitting here like, really Gary? At what part did you think any of that shit was ok? People all over the internet are being stupid saying that what he said is refreshing that he said what he said. But I am here to tell you, no it is not refreshing, it’s not new and exciting, it is not hilarious or brave. It is just another old bigot being exactly who he is, an old bigot who wishes they could say what they want and not really face some kind of backlash for it, and trust me there was a time where people said horrible ignorant things al the time to each other, but you know what happened, society sta r ed to fucking change, and we still aren’ t perfect but shit dude we are not as bad as we used to be. And as far as him saying that everybody thinks those horrible things or just says them jn private, he needs to speak for his damn self, cause I don’t and I have never, ever thougt that shit, or said that shit. I know what is like being called those horrible disgusting words that he used, it made me feel awful, it made me feel less than, and even though I am stronger now, I know never to say evil shit like that to other people. Fuck the PC boo hoo crybaby bullshit that you spew and actually gain some fucking empathy, you know something a decent human being should have. I feel no remorse for what backlash this man faces at all. And further more, that piss poor excuse for an apology he uses is so full of sarcasm and insincerity I don’t blame the ADL for not accepting it. What a fucking asshole.

“I don’t know about Mel. He got drunk and said a few things, but we’ve all said those things. We’re all fucking hypocrites. That’s what I think about it. The policeman who arrested him has never used the word n*gger or that fucking Jew?
So they persecute. Mel Gibson is in a town that’s run by Jews and he said the wrong thing because he’s actually bitten the hand that I guess has fed him—and doesn’t need to feed him anymore because he’s got enough dough. He’s like an outcast, a leper, you know?”

-Gard Oldman

Well guess what Gary Oldman? Mel Gibson wasn’t cast out because of one incident and he didn’t just get drunk and say a few things. Mel Gibson is a total racist, sexist, abuser, and homophobe. His outburst wasn’t some random mouth vomit, he is a hateful and terrible person.

Homophobic Comments

"They take it up the ass. This is only for taking a shit." - Talking about his views on gays.

"With this look, who’s going to think I’m gay? I don’t lend myself to that type of confusion. Do I look like a homosexual? Do I talk like them? Do I move like them?"

"I’ll apologize when hell freezes over. They can fuck off." - When GLAAD asked for him to issue an apology.

Racist

“I will report her to the fucking people that take fucking money from the wetbacks.” - Talking about an employee.

"Fucking Jews… The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world… Are you a Jew?" - To a police officer.

"Somehow it came up that I was Jewish. He said something about ‘oven dodgers,’ but I didn’t get it. I’d never heard that before. It was just this weird, weird moment." - Winona Ryder talking about things Mel Gibson said to her at a party.

Abusive and Sexist

"I am earning money for a filthy little cocksucker who takes advantage of me." - About his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva.

"You know what? You fucking deserve it!" - After Oksana Grigorieva asked him “What kind of man hits a woman with a child in her hands.”

"I am going to come and burn the fuckking house down… but you will blow me first." - To his ex-girlfriend.

"A woman should be home with the children, building that home and making sure there’s a secure family atmosphere.” - Talking about his views in women in our society.

"How dare you act like such a bitch when I have been so fucking nice?" -To his ex-girlfriend.

"Threaten you? I’ll put you in a fucking rose garden you cunt! You understand that? Because I’m capable of it. You understand that?" - To his ex-girlfriend.

Abusive and Racist

"You’re an embarrassment to me, you look like a fucking pig in heat, and if you get raped by a pack of n*ggers, it will be your fault." - To his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

So please tell me how people should forgive him for being a horrible person? This wasn’t a one time, isolated incident. (Though I would argue that people who aren’t inherently racist and sexist would make the remarks he made when he was arrested.) 

This isn’t a “oh he said one thing, let’s forgive him,” situation. This is a “he’s a total piece of shit who has no right to be put on a platform,” situation.
