also a friend of edward said's

Cops in Kensington, Prince Edward Island, are reminding people to plan ahead before getting smashed: Have a designated driver, take a cab, or stay over at a friend’s house. And for those “dumb enough to feel they can drink and drive,” there will be some serious consequences, the cops said in a Facebook post. In addition to a fine, a criminal charge, and a one-year driving suspension, they will also play Nickelback “in the cruiser on the way to jail.” [x]

hi, I was trying to accumulate Good Sources to keep myself informed (news sites, blogs, etc) and also read up on existing work. What would u recommend? (also No Pressure bc I am asking multiple people so u don't have to provide an exhaustive list or even answer this at all). Thank you!

some of the most pressing books i would recommend are orientalism by edward said and time in the shadows: confinement in counterinsurgencies by laleh khalili. these are crucial histories. I follow the new inquiry and jacobin. the new inquiry has been great lately, they have a tumblr page you can follow that’s updated regularly. my friend @beachdeath is often on top of current issues and @m4zlum blogs actively about kurdistan and kurds

on facebook i follow the feminist wire and solidarity: a socialist, feminist, anti-racist organization. I also follow IfNotNow which is a movement of american jews fighting to end jewish american institutional support for the occupation of palestine. Jewish Voice for peace has a great page, they’re an org of jews that fight anti-jewish, anti-arab and anti-muslim racism as well as the occupation of palestine. i get e-mails from democracynow. 

unfortunately its rare for news orgs to attend to all oppressions so we gotta piece together these dif causes. hope this helps! xx

S.coups: Happy Halloween

anonymous asked: hey hey could you please write a scenario based on seungcheol’s halloween outfit bc hot damn does he look fine. maybe like meeting him for the first time at a halloween party or something?? this scenario is kinda vague sorry

Summary: when I first saw it I forgot that twilight existed and I was like wow this isn’t a very good edward scissorhands costume coups you could’ve tried harder and then someone said vampire and I was like oh right (true story. also what happens in this story)

“I can’t believe I let you drag me here.” You said. It seemed like your average stereotypical college party. There were people in the corner making out, and you felt like you were going to suffocate from the overwhelming smell of sweat mixed with cologne and perfume.

“Stop being such a downer, it’ll be fun.” Your best friend says as he pulls you through the dorm.

“You could’ve at least given me more time to get ready.” You complain and he looks at you and scoffs. “I’m serious, Jeonghan.”
