first day of class is tomorrow

waugh

rushed out to try to go to forex office to pay rent bill, guy at the t-bana window wouldn’t accept paper ticket and said it was only good for bus even though I’ve ridden on paper tickets the whole time so far, started to freak out and just went to get studentbiljetten at pressbyrån even though I technically can’t ride on it yet since I don’t have valid ID, and then gave up on going to Liljeholmstorget for forex because forex closes in like half an hour and because I guess 20 minutes of minor inconveniences was too much for me after uh 1 day of orientation… 

plus side though the lady at pressbyrån was a kind of intimidating cranky old one and she’s the first person who didn’t switch to English immediately upon hearing me so! my first complete transaction conducted på svenska

baby steps 

first day of class is tomorrow

But are you paying attention to what’s going on??? My heart is so heavy….. so heavy…
An attorney for the family of John Crawford III, the man fatally shot by police in an Ohio Walmart store, says surveillance video contradicts the police department’s version of events. Officers say Crawford refused to drop the pellet gun he was holding, but the video allegedly shows them gunning him down “on sight.”
Crawford, 22, was shopping at the Beavercreek, Ohio store on Aug. 5 whenpolice responded to another customer’s report that Crawford was carrying an AR-15 rifle. He was actually holding a pellet air rifle he had just picked up from a shelf in the store’s toy department.
Attorney Michael Wright says he viewed surveillance video that shows Crawford was facing away from the cops and talking to his girlfriend on the phone when police spotted him, and didn’t have the toy gun raised. Hetold WDTN Crawford probably didn’t see or hear the officers before he was shot.
"John was doing nothing wrong in Walmart, nothing more, nothing less than shopping,"Wright said, according to Reuters.

Our fight does not begin nor end in Ferguson. Around the country many young black men and women are losing their lives to police brutality and excessive force. We cannot turn a blind eye to this. Fergson is not a singular event. Nor should our response to it be. Police brutality is an epidemic in the black and latino community and it needs to be stopped. 

The information about the cop involved in this case still has not been released and all I can ask is who’s child will be next. 

Boost!!!!

There was 2-3 different police involved shootings in the Chicago area within the past few days. 

I’m sick. Physically ill. Why does this keep happening?

James Lopez is a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman) who is trying to raise funding for his primarily hand-drawn short film, Hullabaloo, with hopes of eventually finding a studio to fund a full-length version.

From the film’s IndieGo page:

Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.

In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.

This vine got taken down.

I think that’s fucking important to note, that this vine got taken down. I saw it and it languished in my drafts for a while because it fell through the cracks.

Remember this. Remember that they’re taking down protest videos. Remember that they’re trying to control the narrative. Remember, keep posting, keep sharing, keep talking about Ferguson. Don’t let the story die.
