Modern Baseball // Re-Do (Alternate Version)

I am amazed I have never listened to this before, it completely blows the album version out of the water.

This makes my chest swell and cramp

Il souffrait de mélancolie. Tu sais ce que c’est la mélancolie ? Tu as déjà vu une éclipse ? Et bien c’est ça : la lune qui se glisse devant le cœur, et le cœur qui ne donne plus sa lumière. La nuit en plein jour.

What is your spirit animal?

@theknaffrican

I don’t use the term spirit animal bc it is culturally appropriative!!! If you are wondering why, this explains it way better than I ever could. Although I am of Cherokee descent, my family doesn’t have any tribal affiliations and I have grown up with 100% white privilege so I feel super uncomfortable about appropriating Native traditions!!!!

I will say that if I had a patronus, it would be a grizzly bear.

Note to self: crying doesn’t make you weak

Tears are bad feelings leaving the body

Literally even, it’s your body dumping excess of the stress hormone cortisol

“We’ve been ‘cool’ for a very long time, and in that sense our culture has been taken for a very long time. How do we define when we’ve arrived? It’s not when a young, white girl in Berkley is wearing nice garlands or those nice buddhist beads, or wearing bindi. I don’t feel like my life in anyway has been improved because she has the ability to do that and thinks that’s okay. My life hasn’t improved. The life of my mother has not improved. Our voice as a community within this economic system has not improved. 
A good friend of mine, she’s south Indian, and she grew up in Connecticut. Her mom would make her wear her bindi and go to school. She would get harassed by kids… she would be harassed so much that what she would do, is that because she was so ashamed to have that bindi on her head, she would leave her house, wipe it off… and then come home and put it back on.
To the point where a child would have to think about such a deliberate attempt to refute their own culture I think is pretty profound. If there’s a white girl wearing a bindi walking down central avenue in the heights, she’s not considered a dot head, even though she has a dot on her head.
For me, the feeling is disgust and anger. The way I look at it if I see it, I just get so mad because I think, how dare this person be able to wear that, or hold that, or put that statue in her house and not take any of the oppression for that. How dare they. That’s not fair. We have to take so much heat and repression for expressing ourselves.
I’m going to rip that thing off your head, and I’m going to scrub that mehndi off your hands, because you don’t have the right to wear it. Until the day when you walk in our shoes, and you face what we face… the pain, and the shame, and the hurt, and the fear, you don’t have the right to wear that. It is not your right, and you’re not worthy of it. I feel like it’s so superficial and it’s so disrespected. One day, wake up, be me, and then you’ll see how powerful what you’re wearing is. ”

parenting tip: talk to your kids about mental illness. tell them they might have a hard time. tell them they can ask for therapy and medication. tell them they aren’t alone. tell them if your family has a history of mental illnesses and which ones. just fucking talk to your kids and be there for them.
