Tumblr Image of the Week



I’ve converted to veganism to reduce my impact on the living world – “Nothing hits the planet as hard as rearing animals. Caring for it means cutting out meat, dairy and eggs”

Off the Grid on a Homemade Island – “Floating off the coast of Vancouver Island, a 45-minute boat ride to the nearest town, is a sustainable island fortress complete with a dance floor, art gallery and garden. For artists Catherine King and Wayne Adams, this is home: a labor of love 24 years in the making.”

De La Soul – Drawn ft. Little Dragon (Official Audio) – “From De La Soul’s new album ‘and the Anonymous Nobody…’ coming August 26!”


For many in my fearful, frustrated generation, “having it all” means opting out of monogamy – “The Daily Mail would have you believe that polyamory is all wild orgies. Think more tea and washing up rotas.”

Pioneering war photographer Gerda Taro’s images vandalised in Leipzig – “Open-air display of photographs covered in black paint in “politically motivated” attack”

The Tor Social Contract – “6. We will never intentionally harm our users. – We take seriously the trust our users have placed in us. Not only will we always do our best to write good code, but it is imperative that we resist any pressure from adversaries who want to harm our users. We will never implement front doors or back doors into our projects. In our commitment to transparency, we are honest when we make errors, and we communicate with our users about our plans to improve.”

Muslim woman mistaken for terrorist, Itemid Al-Mata, sues Chicago police – “A young Muslim woman on Thursday sued Chicago police who mistakenly identified her briefly as a potential “lone wolf” terrorist as she was leaving a city subway station last year on the Fourth of July wearing a headscarf, face veil and carrying a backpack.”

Text analysis of Trump’s tweets confirms he writes only the (angrier) Android half – “I’d really rather get inside the head of this anonymous staffer, whose job is to imitate Trump’s unique cadence (“Very sad!”), or to put a positive spin on it, to millions of followers. Is he a true believer, or just a cog in a political machine, mixing whatever mainstream appeal he can into the @realDonaldTrump concoction? Like Tony Schwartz, will he one day regret his involvement”

American Nazi Party leader sees ‘a real opportunity’ with a Trump presidency – “Chairman Rocky Suhayda says on radio show that a Donald Trump presidency could give American Nazis the chance to build a ‘pro-white’ political caucus”

What the English Summer Riots of 2011 Were Really About – “In a nutshell, in the performance of riot we bore witness to a carnival of disorder in which everything the ruling regime presumed as the basis for its rule was violently desecrated. These riots turned the world upside down.”

What Julian Assange’s War on Hillary Clinton Says About WikiLeaks – “The generally hostile tone of the WikiLeaks Twitter feed in response to even well-intentioned efforts to fact-check the group’s work has also severely hampered the project’s ability to use crowd-sourcing to properly annotate and vet the documents it posts.”


Diese Künstlergruppe setzt ein Kopfgeld auf Liebesschlösser aus – “Für jedes Schloss, das vom 11.-13. August zwischen 13 Uhr und 15 Uhr in der Frankfurter Galeriecon[SPACE] abgegeben wird, zahlen wir einen Euro. Pro Person nehmen wir maximal 30 Schlösser entgegen. Wir werden die Schlösser anschließend einschmelzen und zu einem neuen Objekt gießen.”

SPIEGEL Gespräch: „Anarchie bleibt das Fernziel der Menschheit“ – DER SPIEGEL 16/1983 – “Freiheit ohne Sozialismus führt zur Ausbeutung, Sozialismus ohne Freiheit zur Unterdrückung.”

Mani Matter: “Mehr aufs Ganze gehen!”
“Und will die so destruktiv sy
Sy die andre dopplet brav
Und will dies so dopplet brav sy
Disi ersch rächt schwarzi Schaf
S’macht der Aschyn, dass mir nume
Die zwo Müglechkeite hei
Dass men immer nume ja seit
Oder immer nume nei”
