The T18 Boarhound

While the T17 Staghound met the US Army’s requirement for a medium Armored car, The T18 Boarhound was it’s heavier stablemate. The British Army ordered 2500 units, but only 30 were delivered and the vehicle never saw combat.

The Boarhound was armed with a 57mm Main Gun and 2 7.62 M1919 Machine guns.

Pak Tua Penjual Tissue

Bagi mahasiswa IPB yang sering melewati koridor FEMA, pasti tidak asing dengan bapak berambut putih ini. Beliau adalah penjual tisu seharga Rp 2500,- yg ramah sekali. Selain berjualan tisu, di bulan november dia sering berjualan kalender pergantian tahun masih di tempat yg sama.

Jika kau pernah melewatinya pagi sekitar jam 7 atau 8, biasanya bapak ini terlihat menyapu sepanjang koridor. Bila kau melewatinya siang, mungkin pernah terlihat tidur bersandar. Bila kau melewatinya sore, bapak tua ini sudah mulai terlihat melamun dengan tatapan 1 arah. Namun dengan segala kondisi di atas, jika kau menghampirinya membeli tisu, bapak tua ini pasti akan melayanimu dengan ramah plus dapat bonus doa yg terucap darinya.

Namanya bapak H. Ahmad Sobrana.

Ya siang itu, tak sengaja saya melewati koridor FEMA selepas aktivitas kampus. Saya mampir membeli tisu, sembari saya memberikan uang tiba2 saya spontan berucap, “Maaf lahir batin ya pak.” Ternyata takdir ucapan itu yg mengantarkan saya pada sebuah hikmah cerita siang itu.

Entah kenapa bapak itu memulai asyik cerita kehidupannya. Jangan menebak akhir status ini dengan meminta simpati kasihan bahwa bapak ini orang yg tidak mampu, karena berjualan. Bukan, bahkan jika kau tahu bapak ini adalah orang berada. Dari ceritanya, beliau mempunyai anak yg menjabat sebagai kepala sekolah di sebuah SMA swasta Bogor, cucunya baru-baru ini lulus dari kampus UI dan bekerja di perusahaan gadget ternama. Beliau sendiri adalah seorang pensiunan BUMN berumur 80an tahun. Bahkan punya tanah yg telah dihibahkan berharga lebih dr 700juta.

Dari nama perkenalan di atas, saya sempat kaget mendengar kata haji yang pernah ia jalani. Dari obrolan, beliau bahkan pernah menghajikan ibunya dan istrinya. Beliau banyak bercerita tentang Mekkah, Madinah, Masjidil Haram, makam Rosululloh yang membuat merinding iman terpanggil juga untuk kesana.

Dua hal yg saya ambil dari beliau,
yang pertama keyakinannya tentang doa dan rezeki. Beliau berpesan, “Yakinlah dalam berdoa, jangan minta rezeki karena kita memang sudah dijatah rezekinya, tapi mintalah supaya ditambahkan dan dilancarkan rezekinya.”
Yang kedua tentang kesederhanaan beliau dalam kondisi berada namun masih berusaha sederhana berjualan dan tidak menampakkan kekayaannya. Sering mendoakan pelanggannya dan tidak malu jika menyapu padahal tanpa disuruh dan bukan petugas kebersihan.

Pernah membayangkan kita yg mahasiswa?
Masih berstatus biaya orangtua dan mungkin beasiswa saja, kadang masih berjalan sombong jika melewati orang2 penjual seperti ini, padahal kita tidak tahu mungkin mereka lebih kaya hati dan harta daripada kita, namun masih bersikap sederhana dan mau berusaha.

I let race trump rape

“Like many of the women who say they were assaulted by Bill Cosby, it took me two decades to gain the courage to reveal it publicly. His accusers – mostly white, so far – have faced retaliation, humiliation and skepticism by coming forward. As an African American woman, I felt the stakes for me were even higher. Historic images of black men being vilified en masse as sexually violent sent chills through my body. Telling my story wouldn’t only help bring down Cosby; I feared it would undermine the entire African American community.

…Admitting that Cosby is a rapist would feel like giving in to white America’s age-old stereotypes about black men. It would be akin to validating fears that African American men are lustful and violent. It would be taking away one of our greatest and most inspiring role models – one many African Americans feel we can’t afford to lose.

…Soon after I told my story, I ran into a successful African American photographer who asked me, ‘Sister, is it true?’ The tone of his question made it sound like our father had died. ‘I’m sorry, brother, but it is true. Do not let this weaken you in any way,’ I told him.

Cosby was once a source of hope for many African Americans. But fictional icons like him should not wield so much power over our collective spirit. Our nation’s greatest African American heroes have been on the front lines of Civil Rights efforts, not in our television sets. They are in the mothers and fathers who fought real-life challenges to raise us and in the teachers and professors who worked long hours to educate us. Bill Cosby did not lead the March on Washington, and ‘The Cosby Show’ didn’t end racism. The only legacy at stake is of one entertainer, not of black manhood, as I once feared.” Excerpted from an article by Jewel Allison for the Washington Post.

2,500+ Followers

It’s not much of a milestone from the last follower count we had but I wanted to do one of those weird follow forever things but I feel like it’ll take ages so instead I’ll send you a “Thank you” message individually because we’re all very grateful that you follow this blog 😁😁

Thank you, thank you, thank you... x25,000

I’ve always enjoyed seeing how quickly and slowly my follower count rises (and then falls). When I first started this blog, I would go through and religiously check every couple of minutes, just to see if I had gained a follower or two. I’d always be absolutely giddy at the sight of a number getting even slightly bigger. And while the excitement of a new follower has not disappeared, the scale has increased quite dramatically.

Just before midnight last night, I crossed the line marking 25,000 followers. 

And while it may mean nothing to you who read this blog (just give me the music, I don’t care about the backstory!!!!!), I just wanted to say thank you to those who do care. I get messages almost daily saying how much you enjoy the site, or how much you love that new artist, and I try to respond to each and every one (save for those anons, c’mon now). Your constant support is unbelievably appreciated, and I will never be able to thank you enough.

The best feeling in the world is sharing the music you love with others who love it just as much, and I get the honor of feeling that everyday.

Don’t forget to share what you love with those who you love, and, as always, keep on listening.
