Magnusson has always had everything she ever wanted in her life, except
for one thing. The boyish charm of her brother’s childhood friend had
wrecked her poor heart and ruined her for any other guy – you can
trust her, she has tried. She could see the way he looked at
her, though she knew there were rules about not hitting on your best
friend’s little sister. Luckily for her, there were no restrictions
when it was the other way around.
phase. That’s what they called it. Mara agreed on the choice of
against her bedsheets, loving the contact of the material against her
skin and thriving in the peace of mind that brought a Saturday
morning, when she didn’t have to get up at the crack of dawn to go to
class. She rolled around to change position, but her arm didn’t hit
the mattress. The usually empty spot next to her was not, in fact,
empty. Somewhere in the back of her mind, still deliciously numb from
sleepiness, the thought that this was the best wake up she ever had
appeared. She didn’t say it out loud, but she knew she could get used
In the early 1800s surgeons in England were desperate for cadavers, bodies to dissect in order to learn what makes what run with us humans. To their dismay, the only bodies these doctors were able to ply their trade on were executed convicts. Around 1825-1830 the supply of convicts was on a drastic decline due to less death sentences, which of course some entrepreneuring criminals took advantage of. Most crime buffs know about the notorious Burke and Hare, two men who murdered then sold the bodies then were put on trial for their lives. A lesser known but very similar case is that of the London Burkers. Named after the aforementioned Burke, which was a gang of men who dug up freshly buried bodies and murdered for profit. On November 5th, 1831, a fresh corpse was delivered by John Bishop and James May to the King’s College School of Anatomy. It was so fresh that it raised the suspicions of the demonstrator of anatomy who called the authorities. It was confirmed that the body was that of a 14 boy who had not died naturally. Police arrested the whole gang and searched their residence in Nova Scotia Gardens, a slum area of London. Police found multiple items of clothing and suspected more than one murder had occurred. A short trial commenced and the arrested men, May, Bishop and Thomas Williams, were all convicted and sentenced to death. On November 4th, Bishop made a full confession, claiming to have sold between 500 and 1000 bodies over 12 years. More macabre than that he confessed to two more murders and explained how he did it. Luring his victims, the poor and lost of society, he would drug and brutally murder the poor helpless victims. On December 5, 1831, Bishop and Williams were hung at Newgate prison. May was spared death as it was believed he had no idea about the murders, just the ‘dead from natural causes’ body selling. That same year Elizabeth Ross killed Catherine Walsh of Whitechapel to sell her corpse to a surgeon. These crimes, plus the Burke and Hare murder spree, led to the passage of the Anatomy Act of 1832 which provided a better supply of cadavers to medical schools. This supply took away the enterprising murderers’ chance of filling the schools with victims. Pictured above: a depiction of Bishop, May and Williams, a newspaper from the time about the crimes, a depiction of the murder that brought them to the attention of the authorites, Nova Scotia Gardens where some of the murders took place and finally a song wrtten about the Burkers in 1832.
“Oddly…this isn’t the first or last league wedding I’ve attend.” Oliver spoke into the rim of his glass with a labored sigh. William hung close to him, watching all the people mingle. His eyes were curious but very bit aware of the dangerous that loomed.
i hate that the market also forces Black artists into cosigning that bullshit
like dude was just treated as another william hung type by and large and then there was a whole circuit of major Black artists who suspiciously were feautred in videos and interviews going “no, wait, he’s actually good” (which….eh??? suspicious in itself) but it weirdly satisfies the market on both ends while fulfilling anitblackness in all of the relevant forms from a nonwhite artist

Why is it cultural appropriation when dumb white chicks try to rap but 9 black guys from New York can call themselves "Wu-Tang Clan" and steal Chinese culture for 30 years?
The Wu-Tang Clan sampled exported fictional Chinese movies and based their lives on the films and what they meant. They also added their own mythology to the mix. They are known all over the world… Yes, even China. The name was inspired by the movie “Shaolin and the Wu-Tang”.
The Wu-Tang Clan never pretended to be Chinese nor do they willingly mock the culture. They imitated the films and stated many times that the films inspired them and even made movies and marketed the original films to pay homage.
Iggy, on the other hand, is from Australia, who moved to the USA, yet talks like she’s a Black girl from the Bronx and spend part of her career faking her way.
In her defense (and the only thing she got going for her) is that most people in Hip Hop are not “real”. But some are willing to be upfront about it more than others.
The problem is not her rapping. The problem is she is doing the least, yet being promoted the most. She’s a medicore rapper with very little skills, and yet, was nominated for awards (thankful, she didn’t won any). She cannot move an audience and as a desperate tactic, she’s pressuring herself to freestyle.
Freestyling is a difficult skill and something that separates the hardcore rappers from the beginners. Some rappers may slur a word or two when they freestyle, but can still do better than Iggy’s attempts.
She doesn’t need to freestyle as not every rapper can pull it off, and yet she does. She’s HORRIBLE at it. Let me tell you… a Fox news anchor can freestyle better than Iggy. (I’ll put up a clip later to prove my point)
And now, she’s got proxies to talk on her behalf, which makes her more of a product than a star.
If you think that Hip Hop as a community is upset with Iggy because she’s rapping, than you probably never heard of Aesop Rock , the Beastie Boys or Brother Ali, all who acknowledged and pay homage while at the same time, being themselves.
Iggy is a “star” that her label is trying to milk. She’s the White William Hung, except people actually like William Hung and he acknowledged that he “tried my best and I had no training”.
That’s the difference between her and the Wu-Tang Clan…
… This was an interesting question, but at the same time, kind of a reach.
