Listen up. Getting out of a unhealthy relationship with someone you still have feelings for is like… Throwing up. You know you need to and the feeling keeps building and building until you just decide to get it over with. And that’s gonna hurt so much. But once you recover and everything toxic is out of your system, you’re gonna feel so much better. So if you know it’s unhealthy, go on and get it over with. You’ll live through it.

Dismaland is described by its mysterious street-artist creator, Banksy, as “a festival of art, amusements, and entry-level anarchism.”

Apathetic attendants wear safety vests and mouse-ear hats while telling guests to “end joy” the attractions.

Here’s some text from the event’s official brochure:

Are you looking for an alternative to the soulless sugar-coated banality of the average family day out? Or just somewhere cheaper. Then this is the place for you—a chaotic new world where you can escape from mindless escapism. Instead of a burger stall, we have a museum. In place of a gift shop we have a library, well, we have a gift shop as well.

Bring the whole family to come and enjoy the latest addition to our chronic leisure surplus—a bemusement park. A theme park whose big theme is: theme parks should have bigger themes…

This event contains adult themes, distressing imagery, extended use of strobe lighting, smoke effects and swearing. The following items are strictly prohibited: knives, spraycans, illegal drugs, and lawyers from the Walt Disney corporation.

Kyle Jean-Baptiste died last night. For those of you who don’t know, he played Courfeyrac in Les Miserables on Broadway as well as the Jean Valjean Understudy.

This made him not only Broadway’s first African American Valjean, but also the youngest.

He died in an accident at just 21 years old, falling from his mother’s fire escape.
He was such an incredible talent. I am positively heartbroken right now, I cannot begin to imagine what his family is going through.

Please don’t forget this incredible history-making inspirational man.
