A rich man once came to the Maggid of Koznitz for blessing. ‘What are you in the habit of eating?’ asked the Maggid.
The man replied: ‘I am modest in my demands. Bread and salt, a drink of water, I need no more.’
‘What are you thinking of! You must eat roast meat and drink mead, like all the rich.’ And the rabbi did not let him go until he had promised to change his ways.
Later, to his puzzled chasidim, the Maggid explained: ‘Not until he eats meat will he realize that the poor need bread. As long as he himself eats only bread, he will think the poor can live on stones.’

Hasidic, 18th Century

I think this piece can be commonly found in many siddurs for the Days of Awe, but looking at it during this morning’s service I put it in perspective of the denial I see around me; in that it’s fairly common for those of us with some degree of privilege to falsely humble ourselves in order to say, “look, if I did this, why can’t the less privileged person do the same?” This can be in reference to everything from dietary choices, to education, to overcoming illness. And it’s myopic because it fails to take into consideration every other factor that was in your favor that the other person didn’t have; eating bread like the poor did not make the man in the story poor, nor did it endow him with understanding of their struggles.

I posted this about a year ago and it’s gotten a few reblogs lately so I just remembered and like, I still think it’s true. I think the crux of charity and solidarity is the end result; what have you accomplished by eating only bread despite having access to better food? Did you help another person or your own ego? By the same token, sometimes it helps to lay off and actually see if something is useful before condemning it as feel-good liberal nonsense. The Maggid of Koznitz didn’t get followers by acting more radical-than-thou 24/7.

“A couple of nights before the Olympics, my girlfriend was dyeing her hair peroxide blonde and I just said, ‘It will be funny to shove a bit of blond in my hair at the front!’ So I just did it for a bit of a laugh and made this big massive blond streak. Then I realised the Olympics in a couple days and I was like, ‘What am I gonna do?!’ I tried to style it out but it wasn’t happening, so in the end I just left it. Part of me was singing on that truck and thinking, I hope people don’t cuss me for this blond streak! Turned out people liked it. Then, bizarrely, Marvel Comics said that my look had inspired the new version of Ghost Rider. The blond streak is the fire that ignites from him, which is mad. I’m a big comic book fan - when I was a kid I was pretty geeky about all that. Obviously, I also have my ‘Zap!’ tattoo on my forearm, so when I heard about the new Ghost Rider that was pretty cool. I’ve since been to the Marvel Studios, which was an amazing experience.”

i think this is important and everyone should know about it.

~spoiler~ he shaves his head in issue 4 :((((((((

and then Trad Moore leaves and Damion Scott takes over art duties.

but it’s still a pretty solid read.

I wanted both those panels in the same post but Tumblr was dumb and now the second post lacks the context of Kieron’s explicit instructions that Baal be tossing THAT Super Bass look over his shoulder and it will be lost in any reblogging that occurs and this is the kind of thing I worry about instead of going to get Apples & Honey before WalMart — the only grocery store within 15 minutes of my apartment — closes.

Test your friends by rapping “first things first” and see if they respond with “I eat your brains” or “i’m the realest”

 

the correct answer: “I poppa freaks all the hunnies, dummies, Playboy bunnies those wantin’ money”

Relevantly, in panel 4, amongst a lot of other of my usual nonsense I said…
“Anyway – him giving a glance back over his shoulder. And… this is very much the LOOK THAT NICKI MINAJ HAILS IN SUPER BASS.”
Jamie nailed that look.

this sentence is giving me a migraine 

Iggy’s gonna be the first real superstar female rapper you guys ignore Lauryn and Missy’s grammy’s and critical acclaim ignore Nicki’s platinum albumS and sell out tours and critically acclaimed mixtapes ignore it all, ms crocodile dundee dropped one mediocre 8 track mixtape and did 2 songs that everyone only knows the chorus too SHE’S the one to watch!!! 

The most depressing part of this is that lat month Nicki Minaj actually broke the record for the most appearances as a lead, collaborative, or featured guest artist on the Billboard Hot 100. But nah, forget her, she’s not important, let’s all gush about how successful Iggy Azalea is instead.

What I had for breakfast this morning is more important than Iggy Azalea.

I do not understand how they say she’s gonna be the ‘first real female rap superstar’ or some shit and then they proceed to list people who’ve already done what they’re trying to say iggy is the first to do…

what awards has iggy even won tho??
what has she done??
who has she worked with other than t.i.???
like why do people give a shit about that elmer’s glue lookin hoe???

Name something other than fancy and that ft on the Ariana Grande song please

^^^^If someone had a gun to my head telling me to list them, I’d get ready to go with god

ummm. there was that song with the appropriative music video where she was in a sari i think? but i don&#8217;t remember the name of it. is that &#8216;naming&#8217;? i guess not. proving the point of this entire post.

The weird thing is how Joseph Gordon-Levitt grew up and now looks EXACTLY LIKE HEATH LEDGER. Because in this movie, can you imagine that was what was going to happen to JGL’s face?

I can’t unsee this now.
