NEVER trust an adult who won’t apologize to a child

Wow. I’d never seen it put that way, but. Wow. That is a really good piece of advice.

Lost silent film with all-Native American cast found

The Daughter of Dawn, an 80-minute feature film, was shot in July of 1920 in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge near Lawton, southwest Oklahoma. It was unique in the annals of silent film (or talkies, for that matter) for having a cast of 300 Comanches and Kiowas who brought their own clothes, horses, tipis, everyday props and who told their story without a single reference to the United States Cavalry. It was a love story, a four-person star-crossed romance that ends with the two main characters together happily ever after. There are two buffalo hunt sequences with actual herds of buffalo being chased down by hunters on bareback just as they had done on the Plains 50 years earlier.

The male lead was played by White Parker; another featured female role was played by Wanada Parker. They were the son and daughter of the powerful Comanche chief Quanah Parker, the last of the free Plains Quahadi Comanche warriors. He never lost a battle to United States forces, but, his people sick and starving, he surrendered at Fort Sill in 1875. Quanah was the son of Comanche chief Peta Nocona and Cynthia Ann Parker, the daughter of Euro-American settlers who had grown up in the tribe after she was kidnapped as a child by the Comanches who killed her parents. She was the model for Stands With a Fist in Dances with Wolves.

You can watch the first ten minutes of the film here. It is over 90 years old, and was produced by, directed by, and stars Native American people.

Oh, Danny Boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling

From glen to glen, and down the mountain side,

The summer’s gone, and all the roses falling,

It’s you, it’s you must go and I must bide. (x)

Let’s talk about how one of the antagonists of the movie, who had his good half viciously erased and was forced to somewhat “kill” his own parents is singing an Irish ballad in his downtime. A ballad with ambiguous meaning but can be interpreted as a song about someone who left a part of themselves behind for some greater purpose and wants that part back.

Let’s talk about the staggering amount of character development GCBC got in only a couple of short scenes. It’s very important

There are a lot of reasons why this silly, humorous movie is well written and GOOD too.  And this is one of them.  I could name other ‘kids movies’ who pull similar awesome, and they are all on my favs list. Fuck yea.

You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).

Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.

Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.

Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?

People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.

Okay, but let’s talk for a second about how that one lady called turkey “big chicken”

Never feel down about your voice

totalspiffage:

lunarch-sounds:

The greatest part about your voice is that it is unique to you and only you can boast having it.  People can try to imitate it or have it sound similar to but it is only a copy.  Your voice is special and if you hone it, practice it, and of course…USE IT…it shall become a pleasure to hear.  Yours will be within a plethora of other unique and beautiful voices that come together in a whirling symphony of delightful dialogue.

I’ve had to tell myself this because I sometimes feel down about how I have an inferior voice…it couldn’t be farther from the truth.  My voice is unique and it is my gift for all of you so you can be entertained and be inspired.  Please never think of yours as anything but a gift.

We are simply evolving to become better at using these glorious pipes.  LET US SPEAK FURTHER ON INTO THE FUTURE, MY FRIENDS!

(EDIT: In terms of grammar though some of us could get better…man this is a mess of a post)

Yeahhhh! Positivity! I hated my voice for a long time but I’ve grown to love it in all its uniqueness and so have other people!

Fully Functional and Driveable Truck Made of Ice

Canadian ice sculpture company called Iceculture took on an incredible challenge recently. The result is pretty much unbelievable.

Canadian Tire, a battery company, wanted to showcase just how well their batteries hold up in the cold. The best way to do that? Build an 11,000+ pound, fully functional and driveable ice truck. Every part of the truck that is not absolutely necessary for driving is made of ice.

CANADA

Even the fucking air freshener… I love this country.

GRIMY 301.

I’m going to take 301 pictures of boys with make-up. 

In Russia, there is a project which is called “pure 1001”. A photographer takes pictures of girls without make-up. He says, that this is real beauty. Fuck off man, there is no “REAL BEAUTY” all. That’s a joke.

The real beauty is in when people look like who THEY want and also they may be what THEY want. 

You know, here, in Russia, it is TOO hard to look or to be like you want or feel. You can’t be yourself. 

i WISH boys wore makeup wow

So, You Want To Make An Advice Blog.

fairysharkmother:

 Momma has gotten a lot of asks about people that want to either join the Sea Family, or make their own advice blog. Here is what Momma has to say:

  • Can you survive?

Momma has a mission for you. Tumblr is a place with many, many, people. And those people can have some pretty heavy problems. 

Click here.

That is a link to Blahtherapy.com. Momma often sends people there if they need someone to talk to. She also still spends time there as a listener. 
 
 Go to that site. Be a listener there for two hours. Can you handle it? Helping people in need is very trying and difficult. It takes up a lot of energy and time. If you cannot handle this, you may not want to make an advice blog.

  • Why do you want to start?

If you want to make an advice blog as a get-rich-quick scheme, don’t. Only start one if you honestly and really want to help people. Momma has actually seen a few people do this.

  •  Make a creed. Stick to it.

Before you make the blog, choose a creed or motto for your blog. If you need something to fall back on, it’s very useful. A creed is just a basic rule. How are you going to make your blog?

For example, Momma’s creed is “This is a safe space. Love, not hate. The only enemy is ignorance.” Your creed might be a bit different. It might be “Brutal honesty.” or “Make people laugh.” 

  • Remember to care about yourself. 

Like Momma has said, advice blogs are very difficult. They take a lot of energy and emotion to run. 

 You need to think and love yourself, too. Ask yourself a few questions before starting an advice blog. 

  1. Is your own mental health stable enough to take it?
  2. Are you going to be able to give good advice?
  3. Are you going to be able to take criticism, and hate?
  4. Do you know yourself well enough to be able to give others advice?

Remember to take care of yourself. If you need to take a break, take a break. 

 This isn’t the be all and end all, these are just some tips that Momma came up with for aspiring advice bloggers!
