Sometimes he woke up in the middle of the night, startled by something. Might be his dreams, might not. He didn’t remember enough of them to tell.
What he remembered of them usually went like this:
He woke up alone. Statics filled the air. The streets buzzed. The punches never came, and he just walked the streets until he was on the ground, in front of an alleyway. The dusty lamppost stood between him and the entrance. The light flickered the way usual household light bulbs did, but slower.
Then he woke up, alone, the newest podcast playing on loop in his ears. The light was always off.
Shia LaBeouf returns to protest after assault arrest
Shia LaBeouf has returned to his live streamed anti-Trump protest after he was bailed on an assault charge.
Shia was arrested in the early hours of Thursday (26Jan17) morning after a scuffle which took place opposite New York City’s Museum of the Moving Image, where he and Jaden Smith are staging a four year art project titled HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US.
He was charged with misdemeanour assault and harassment before being released on bail.
The project features a camera which streams live footage of members of the public chanting the phrase “He will not divide us”, in protest at the election of Donald Trump as America’s President.
Just hours after he had been led away in handcuffs by New York Police Department (NYPD) officers, the Transformers actor had returned to his protest, determinedly chanting the phrase to camera with the support of other activists.
The 30-year-old’s fellow protesters offered him support after his arrest, saying the actor’s actions were in response to Nazi sympathisers’ attempts to hijack the anti-Trump performance art piece.
One told TMZ.com, “Shia took a hit for us. There were all these Nazis here, he came out and tried to protect us.”
His artistic collaborator Jaden also tweeted, “#FreeShia” in reference to his friend’s arrest.
Footage captured by the camera has shown scuffles between the star and people who have shouted white nationalist slogans to camera.
On Sunday (22Jan17) the star reacted angrily to a man shouting the words, “We must ensure the existence of the white people as a race,” while in another incident a man was shown saying “Hitler did nothing wrong”.
It is not known if Shia’s arrest was related to the confrontations with those shouting racist slogans.
The actor will appear in court at a later date to address the charges of misdemeanour assault and harassment.
NYPD officers have been stationed at the protest since Monday (23Jan17).
I was on the Daily Mail site for a random reason and ran across this. It’s not in the article itself (the one on 1D’s net worth), but it’s the thumbnail for it.
It’s 2017 and we still have these ridiculous stereotypes.
Niall as the “wholesome” one? Are they forgetting that he’s the one who cursed so much that he was quiet in interviews because he wasn’t sure he would remember not to swear? Are they forgetting all the women they’ve claimed he dated while they already had other boyfriends or that supposedly left their boyfriends for him? (No, he didn’t really date those women)
Harry as the hot one? I mean, Harry’s hot, but even my coworker who knows nothing about the boys and isn’t particularly interested was surprised at how attractive all of them are. They definitely kick the boy band cliche of having a few hot members and a few that aren’t so much. They couldn’t come up with anything more specific for Harry?
Liam as the “sensible” one? It’s like we’re back to Daddy Direction which hasn’t really been a thing with the boys for years. Plus, I find their definition of “sensible” interesting since they’re claiming that Liam was up for having a baby with a woman he’d only been dating for a few months who had 2 failed marriages and was still married to the last one. (No, it’s not really his baby)
Louis as the wild one? Louis is definitely rebellious and mischievous, but they’re clearly capitalizing on the airport thing to try to make him look reckless and violent when he’s a level-headed sweetheart in reality. He was super reasonable and peaceful in that airport debacle. Many people would have engaged after being hit at, but all he did was break up the fighting and escape the conflict as soon as everyone was safe.
And Zayn. It’s an absolute farce how much Gigi is in Zayn’s business where she doesn’t belong. It’s to the point where even in this photo, she takes up 75% of it when it’s entirely about Zayn. (No, he’s not really dating her)
Also, the “brooding” one? Just because Zayn has resting gorgeous-and-pensive face doesn’t mean he’s brooding. He’s intellectual, principled, artistic, loyal, dorky, goofy, sweet with fans, and has a smile that lights up a room.
