It is the year 2017.

The location is St. Louis, Missouri, USA.

The police laid siege against a synagogue, opened fire upon it with rubber bullets, and ensconced it with a gas attack.

The temple opened its doors to shelter those demonstrators who were targeted for violent repression by the police, and they are paying the price still as I type this.

Jackbooted thugs are roaming the streets, hungry for murder, and each and every one of them are on the payroll of the City of St. Louis, Missouri.

Sorry for the spam y'alls but I’d like to point out before I go to bed that one guy dies in London from terror attack in London and the western world LOSES ITS SHIT but 70+ people are murdered in Syria by a gas attack and I don’t even see it cross my dash

Even if you can’t help Syria at least care enough to remind everybody you know that every one of those lives is worth as much as the lives of civilians in London or France

And perhaps donate to those who are able to bring aid

Summer Anime 2017

As the temperature rises and students finish up the school year, it is time to say goodbye to spring and hello to summer! After picking up my badge for this year’s Anime Expo (AX), I feel that it’s appropriate to reflect back on this past anime season. Spring season has given me a variety of great shows to watch, such as Tsuki ga Kirei, Eromanga-sensei, Attack on Titan 2, etc., while also surprising me with the amazing show known as Boku no Hero Academia. Now with the anticipation of AX hanging over my shoulders, I am more than ready to start the SUMMER ANIME SEASON!!!

Here are the shows that I am planning on watching:

- Katsugeki/Touken Ranbu

AHHHH I’VE BEEN LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS SINCE IT WAS ANNOUNCED! LETS GO!

- Ballroom e Youkoso

An anime on ballroom dancing…as a dancer it’d be a crime to not watch it!!!

- DIVE!!! 

What can I say…I’m sports anime trash.

- Koi to Uso

The premise of this show seemed interesting and Kana Hanazawa is one of the main characters!

- Netsuzou TRap

I’m probably cursing myself by watching a Shoujo Ai anime for the first time…but I’m curious hehehhehe

- Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun

A sports anime with a clean-freak protagonist naturally poked my interest.

- Tsurezure Children

Each episode is only 15 minutes, but COME ON the characters are adorable!

- Fate/Apocrypha

There’s a lot of hype for this and it’s connected to the Fate franchise! WOOO!

- Konbini Kareshi

I actually have no excuse why I’m watching this…LOL XD

- Hitorijime My Hero

YAOI YAOI YAOI YAOI

Leftovers:

- Boku no Hero Academia 2

I picked this show up on a whim and I can say that I now understand the hype for this anime. I never expected to love the show and it’s characters so much to the point that I’m begging all of my anime friends to watch it so that they can geek over it with me. Consider me a part of this fandom from now on!

I’m super, super excited to start watching these shows! This summer season is even more special since I am starting it by attending all 4 days of AX. I am cosplaying as Yuuri Katsuki from…you guessed it, Yuri!!! on ICE. Plus, I have a chance to meet Kubo-sensei and Yamamoto-sensei! In the words of Yuuri, “I’m still in denial that this is actually happening!”

I’m praying to the anime gods that I will be able to get autographs from both of these lovely ladies and attend their panel. While I wait in line in the ungodly hours of the morning, I will be waiting to start this great line-up of anime. Thanks for reading!

The Swingin’ Harlem Hellfighters Band,

The Harlem Hellfighters have taken to the spotlight in modern times thanks to the popularity of the video game “Battlefield 1″, where the African American soldiers are featured in the very opening of the game. The US 369th Infantry Regiment was a unit of African American soldiers who served with incredible distinction during World War I. During the war many white American soldiers refused to serve with blacks, and as a result the 369th was assigned to the French Army, the French having little qualms with serving with African Americans, nor did they have a policy of segregation such as the US Army. They were even issued French weapons and wore French helmets while in combat. During their service in World War I the 369th was nicknamed by the French “The Harlem Hellfighters” because of their tenacious fighting spirit.  They never gave ground in combat, not one soldier was ever captured, and they served the longest continuous deployment of any other Allied unit during the war (191 days of continuous combat). Due to their bravery, they were also among the most decorated Allied units, with two Medals of Honor, 171 French Croix de Guerre’s, and numerous Distinguished Service Crosses.

One of the most unique features of the Harlem Hellfighter’s was their band, perhaps the only unit in the entire war to have a ragtime band.  Unlike pretty much all other military bands which played traditional marches and martial music, the Harlem Hellfighter Band played the music they loved and could perform best, mostly American ragtime music and early forms of Jazz.  The Harlem Hellfighter Band was directed by Lt. James Reese Europe, a man who was certainly fit for the job as he was the band leader of the Clef Club Orchestra, a band popular in New York for their ragtime and proto-jazz music.

On April 8th, 1918 French soldiers turned their heads in wonder as The Harlem Hellfighters marched toward the front to the tunes of hot ragtime and Jazz beats. 

No one in Europe had ever heard such music, in fact Jazz was barely even heard in the United States outside of a few communities in New Orleans, Chicago, and New York.  The new music became an instant hit among both French and British soldiers, and before long the Harlem Hellfighters Band was being called to perform for French and British units all along the line, as well as villages they passed through. Soon, the Harlem Hellfighters swinging sound took Western Europe by storm, and the band was even invited to perform in Paris at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées. Among the Hellfighters biggest hits was a ragtime tune called “Memphis Blues”.

Another popular hit was “On Patrol in No Man’s Land”, written by Lt. James Europe himself while recuperating after being wounded in a poison gas attack while on patrol.

And then of course the biggest crowd pleaser given the location and audience was a jazzed up version of “Le Marseillaise”  

After the war the band would make a grand tour of Europe, then return home and make a grand tour of the United States. Stories of the Harlem Hellfighters unique sound had spread across American and people were demanding more.  During their American tour, the band cut 24 records. Everywhere they went, whether in Europe or the United States, they drew huge cheering crowds, they had become the superstars of their day. 

Unfortunately the story of the Harlem Hellfighters Band did not end well for James Europe. On the night of May 9th, 1919 Europe confronted one of his drummers over poor and unprofessional behavior.  The drummer, known as a hothead among the band members, attacked Europe and stabbed him in the throat with a penknife. Europe bled out and died while in the hospital later that night.

The legacy of the Harlem Hellfighters Band is as grand and all encompassing for music as the Great War itself.  Essentially, the band is credited with spreading the popularity of Jazz throughout Europe and America. Before World War I, Jazz was a niche genre of music, common only among African Americans living in certain areas of New York, New Orleans, and Chicago.  After the exploits of the Harlem Hellfighters Band Jazz would spread across the world, becoming the dominant form of popular music up to the 1950′s and serving as the predecessor to popular music styles today such as rock, hip hop, pop, and soul.

After the regime of Bashar al-Assad again attacked civilians with chemical weapons a rally took place in front of the embassy of Russia in Berlin. Russia is beside Iran the closest ally of al-Assad. About 86 People died from the chemical attack in Khan Sheikhun, hundreds were injured.

The activists condemned the ongoing war crimes by the regime and urged Russia to stop al-Assad from killing the Syrian People. 04/05/2017.

Each Person Who Died in Syria Today Has a Story We’ll Never Know: I Don’t Know How to End the War, But We Must Accept More Refugees

As I write this, the death toll from today’s sarin gas attack in Syria stands at 82, with dozens thought to be children. 

This is obscene. 

The world is forever scarred. 

Meanwhile, we have an administration that has twice tried to ban all Syrian refugees.

For six years, I’ve read all I can about the Syrian civil war and I know enough to know even top-tier military and diplomatic officials have different views on how the war can and should end. 

I don’t purport to have better answers. 

But I do know it’s morally paramount that we accept Syrian refugees, and that we accept even more than the Obama administration agreed to accept. As I understand, he had to fight the GOP Congress to agree to accept any Syrian refugees at all. 

This isn’t–or shouldn’t be–about partisanship, but about our shared humanity. 

When calling your elected representatives, discuss your views on Syrian refugees and remind them the U.S. has blood on our hands if we stand idly by.

There are many, many reasons to be intensely skeptical of the notion that Assad has ever used chemical weapons on anyone at all. These include Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh’s brand new report claiming that the Trump administration was fully aware that there was no evidence for Assad having used chemical weapons in the Idlib province on April 4 but was bound and determined to carry out the April 6 missile strike anyway, as well as Hersh’s 2013 report “Whose Sarin?” which strongly argued that it was the terrorist group Al-Nusra who used sarin gas on civilians that year, not the Syrian government.
