He has a record of killing us an they hired him back and put him in a community that’s mainly black?!?!?! I CANNOT. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2732986/Darren-Wilson-s-policing-job-Missouri-police-department-shut-entire-force-replaced-amid-racism-corruption-allegations.html
Uh, did any of you even bother reading the article? Wilson was not involved in that shooting, and the article says “Wilson didn’t face any disciplinary action during his time at Jennings.” Every time I think Tumblr can’t sink any lower, a trip to my dashboard can rectify that…

I saw them play this song live last night, which was the main reason I went to the concert. (The other bands, Bear In Heaven and Weeknight, were also very good.) They played in front of a film projector which played quick cuts of various images, much different from the slow and ethereal scenes in the music video.

The Chameleons : “Don’t Fall” from the album Script Of The Bridge (1983)
Ok so the skinny on the 1980’s, my 1980’s, is this. Musically in the U.K. a tremendous quantity of influential bands were breaking out of their surroundings, locally. Before most of us had a chance to catch up and reflect on what had just happened we were rewarded with the greatest music of a century. Bands such as:
Gang of Four
The Jesus and Mary Chain
……. and so much more
But there comes a time when an album(they called them albums back then)
sweeps you into the stratosphere. The Chameleons’ album “Script of the Bridge” is one such album. The track “Don’t Fall” exemplifies everything this band was capable of. Soaring guitars and pounding rhythms, unrelenting power and beautiful melodies all bound together in one phenomenal record. They still give me tingles today. Their music is timeless.
Script Of The Bridge will always remain on my top 10 records list of all time.
Another satisfied customer. =)
Agreed; one of the greatest LPs of any era. Though most of the bands in that big list sound nothing like the Chams…
i promise to reblog this every time it shows up on my dash
Since whites make up 62.6% of the U.S. population and blacks make up 13.2% (2013 Census Bureau figures), this infogram shows that black Americans receive welfare at a rate about 3 times higher than white Americans do. I don’t have a problem with that, due to centuries of institutionalized discrimination by whites against blacks in the workplace and elsewhere, but one can’t possibly look at this and deduce that the average white American is more likely to receive food stamps than the average black American. (Well, aside from the 181,000 people who did…)
