Jay-Z, DJ Clue?, DMX, Method Man and Redman, photographed showing off their Gold and Platinum plaques backstage during the “Hard Knock Life Tour” by Barry Roden in 1999.
The star-studded 54-date tour grossed $18 million and suffered no cancellations (in fact, it added 17 extra dates during its cross-country trek to meet the high demand), no artist drop-offs, or any incidents of violence—completely silencing the mainstream critics who believed a purely rap tour of its magnitude couldn’t be done.
Jay and X would donate their proceeds from the Denver stop of the tour to help the families of the victims of the Columbine tragedy. “We decided to donate the proceeds from this show as soon as we saw the date on the schedule. We’ve known first hand how pointless and senseless violence always is, and we wanted to show our support in a real way” Jay said of the decision.
In an interview with MTV in October 1999 Hov said he wouldn’t be against recreating the tour at the top of 2000 to support the artists new projects: “Well, the same people are [releasing new albums] at the same time. DMX comes out, myself comes out, Method Man, Redman, we all come out. So hopefully we be as hot and we try and do it all over again.” “But,” he added, “you can only make history once.”
One of the main reasons I love this man. Always so caring.
This post means A LOT to me. Especially in these moments. My country is going through very, very difficult times. We Venezuelans are going through our worst political, economical and social crisis in the last 15 years. I’m not gonna mention the details because I could spend HOURS explaining all of this mess. But I’m gonna say the reason of all of this is an absurd ideology of an incompetent government that only wants to perpetuate in power. There have been a lot of protests all over the country… most of them have been brutally repressed. I only hope we can get rid of this government SOON.
There’s basically nothing, but the theme is meta-human trafficking, and the conflict surrounding super-powered individuals. That’s like, literally all the plot information. And it will be on a separate, DC specific streaming service that will have a monthly subscription.
The plot sounds interesting but holy cow I hope it doesn’t cost to much cause otherwise I’ll have to find a uploaded version.

There was a moment in time when I thought I might not make it and I thought I was completely alone. Then I began meeting a lot of people on the way who were going through the same thing that I was going through. And what happens that is often swept under the rug is that when people come out, and when kids come out, they are met with extremely harsh reactions and those reactions leave scars. And my hope, in sharing my story, is that we get to realize that our scars are shared and we can hopefully begin this healing process together. I don’t feel like I’m sharing just my truth. I feel like I’m sharing our truth.

I am literally sobbing because, with the end of Bates Motel, I am looking back on my two years of having this blog and I am just so happy that I convinced myself to make Emma. Through this blog, I have made such unbelievable friends, and I have grown as a human being. I feel like I have grown with Emma. Thank you to everyone for coming on this journey with me.
I love Emma so much, and I miss her and the rest of the Bates Motel character already. I owe so much to this show, and to this community. You have gotten me through some really tough times. I feel so happy to have shared so many memories with you, and I will continue to make memories here, even though the show is now over.
I’m so grateful for everything. I love you all so much and I appreciate each and every one of you.
if you want to show your support to connor, i suggest leaving a NICE comment on his latest video (frames) to help push down the hate and leave him with only nice things to read if he should take a look at the comments, or tweeting him a message of support.
i can’t believe this is happening to him, it honestly breaks my heart. :(
And I thought Kara was gonna kiss Lena's temple when they were cuddling.I was robbed,there were two moments like they were about to kiss and we didn't get them,I would have been happy with a temple kiss cause it would show Kara's support even more and their closeness.
the director yelled “MAKE IT LESS GAY, LADIES!” so they had to cut it out, but meli (as kara) sure wanted to kiss her, she sure did
This clip meant sooo much to me! As a Muslim, I’m so happy they are showing supportive and open muslim parents because this is the exact relationship I have with my mom, I can tell her anything and everything without any hesitation. I know there’s this misconception that all Muslim parents are strict but that is so far from the truth. Mine and many of my friend’s parents are just like Sana’s :)

Yesterday, after years of searching and struggling, I was confirmed in the Episcopal church as part of the wider Anglican communion. For someone who gets cold feet about spiritual commitment and almost left Christianity entirely in college, finding a home in which to put down theological and communal roots is certainly something to celebrate. And there’s nothing like having a Lutheran, a Methodist, two Presbyterians, a Roman Catholic, and a member of the Church of the Brethren show up to support you and lay hands on you in prayer.

Your sheith post about it possibly being canon I did read that the writers wanted to take Tim in building relationships and the story. Which I think is cool since a lot of shows rush into relationships without any build to it. Also I don't think it's queerbaiting since as far as I know the writers never said anything was going to canon I just think they like to show support.
hi! sorry this got a little long ;; so under the cut it goes:
