This movie is so fun and colorful! I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would, the music is spot on. And I really like the relationship between Groot and Rocket, he’s like a proud papa raccoon ahahaha 8’))))))

There’s a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state. The other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people.
That quote comes from Battlestar Galactica’s Commander Adama. He says it in the second episode of the first season of the series, “Water”, written by Ron Moore. That episode is 10 years old. (via the-goddamazon)

When I ran out of my giant tub of Eco Styler Krystal Gel when putting in my crochet braids, I grabbed a beanie (half done braids are not made for public viewing) and ran out the door to replace it. But my local drugstore was out. Completely and totally out. Of all Eco Styler gels. Except for this one. So I said “Fine. Let’s try it.” Famous last words my friends! Because I haven’t been this disappointed with a gel in a long time

Shukor and spice: a love letter to Ethiopian & Eritrean weirdos, troublemakers, and timid rebels

ethiopienne:

You, with the tongue that glues itself to the roof of your mouth when the whole family gathers and asks what you want to do with your life. You, who cannot bring yourself to force the words “artist, dreamer, anything but doctor or lawyer” out from the back of your throat. You, who hide your drawings, your quirks, your quiet rebellion. 

I see you. I see your weird radiance, your strange brilliance. I see you shrink yourself to fit the standards of communities adjusting to a country that does not know what to make of us. I see you pull away from eyes struggling to make sense of you from across the dinner table, across the group of aunties with backs turned away from your growth.

There are no words for this—this moment when you feel continents apart from the people who share your blood but don’t understand the way your heart beats differently from their own. There are no roadmaps to make sense of a path we do not know exists until we stumble upon it.

But you are not alone. Your shy, your strange, your troubled—they walked alongside your ancestors, too. Fear stood alongside them through every battle, self-doubt became their bedfellow. Your art is not without precedent. Your heart is not without match in our legacies. You are not the first to waver, to wander, to wonder.
