Crimson and Clover

The first act of violence is to establish a system of oppression. Everything after that is resistance. It has been de rigeur to decry the Hamas rockets that crash into Israel’s Iron Dome. But terrorism is using violence to impose a political condition. Terrorism is Israel imposing a siege on a people because they voted for a government Israel didn’t like. Terrorism is bombing imprisoned civilians and schools and hospitals. Think of the countless days and weeks when no rockets were fired from Gaza. Was the siege lifted then? No. The world treated Gaza as a humanitarian case, as if what the Palestinians needed was aid. But what Gaza needs is freedom.

Israel requires the Palestinians to recognise Israel as a “Jewish state”. That is, to accept that the Palestinians living in Haifa, Yafa, Nazareth, Akka etc will always be second-class citizens in their country. Israel ruptures logic; it wants to be a democracy practiced on the basis that some people are “chosen” and others are not. And if that won’t work then it wants the “not chosen” to disappear.

Birthday Presents from yesterday: Two awesome recipe/technique books, Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert, an Italy lacrosse stick, an 8 inch Mercer Chef’s knife/5 inch utility knife, and a bag for my knives. I also ordered, as a gift to myself, The uncensored Picture of Dorian Gray (Reader’s edition).

#me and robin

One of the reasons I don’t root for USA in soccer is because the minute the team starts doing well, everyone in this country pretends to love soccer, and turns it into this weird patriotic bs that just rubs me in every wrong direction

Sometimes I look at pictures of robin and I’m like, damn I have a hot girlfriend

nubbsgalore:

photos by ryan dyar from the pacific northwest (click pic for location), who notes, “‘i try to bring a three dimensional sense of life to a two dimensional medium. sometimes, it requires many nights of camping in the back county waiting for the right conditions,” adding, “there are even a few shots where it has taken me years of traveling back to the same location to get the ideal setting.”

but he says, “if my images can bring awareness to protecting wilderness or even inspire a person to get out and see these areas for themselves, then that would be amazing.”
