Hedy Epstein, a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor was arrested on Monday during unrest in Ferguson Epstein, who aided Allied forces in the Nuremberg trials, was placed under arrest “for failing to disperse.” 8 others were also arrested.

"I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. I didn’t think I would have to do it when I was ninety," Epstein told The Nation during her arrest. “We need to stand up today so that people won’t have to do this when they’re ninety.” Epstein is currently an activist and a vocal supporter of the Free Gaza Movement. 

Very few people have deserved a spot on this blog more

  • Tywin Lannister skinning his own deer.  Lol yeah, no.
  • "I’m guessing this fight ends differently cos there’s no statue in the middle of the room…"
  • Who the actual fuck is this redheaded chick riding a turnip cart from a brothel that doesn’t exist to King’s Landing?!
  • "Khal Drogo is talking but all I’m hearing is ‘Wow I’m hot, I’m so hot.  Look at me ffs, holy shit.  I didn’t even wear half a shirt today - you’re welcome.”
  • Osha made it in!  I wasn’t sure she would.  Hi Osha, hi hi!  Do me a favour and knee Theon in the groin - trust me he’ll deserve it.
  • "Lord Beric" looks like he’s about twelve.  I had to look it up to see if I had the name right.
  • For some reason I always pictured Bronn as being really dashing.  Yunno, sunlight glinting off his teeth, maybe an earring, Legolas hairdo.  But this bloke’ll do ok.
  • Do they never replaster the walls in the Tower of the Hand or what?
  • "He says ‘They messed with the wrong hot guy’s wife, we’re all going to the Seven Kingdoms to fuck shit up.  All the shit.  I’ma kill that Robert guy with my abs.’ “
  • Still not over how ugly the dragon eggs are.
  • Gods forgive me for laughin’ at my poor baby in the sky cell.  Tyrion is having a rough month.

As anger erupted again on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, a human rights team from Amnesty International worked on the ground in the US for the first time ever.

Confrontation flared up after an autopsy found that Michael Brown, an unarmed teenager who was fatally shot by an officer on 9 August, had suffered at six bullet wounds including one in the top of his head.

Eye-witnesses report seeing police, with no visible ID badges, hurling tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters and threatening members of the press in another night of demonstrations.

Amnesty International, said it would be observing police and protester activity and gathering testimonies as well as training local activists “on methods of non-violent protest” in an “unprecedented” move by the campaigners.

Amnesty International USA’s Executive Director, Steven W Hawkins said that the “people of Ferguson have the right to protest peacefully the lack of accountability for Michael Brown’s shooting”.

Jasmine Heiss, one of the 13-strong team sent by Amnesty, told Buzzfeed that the limits placed on the organisation’s access to post-curfew areas was indicative of “the overall lack of transparency in this investigation”.

Complex Magazine said that police had opened fire into the crowds without warning three hours before the midnight curfew began, causing some children and members of the media to be hit with tear gas and rubber bullets.

Two black journalists from Complex also said that they had been racially profiled, being refused re-entry into the press area whereas white members of the press had been.

Such a soothing voice. It’s kinda like a big embrace that just makes you feel really happy.

I love our fans. I love that they love our show. I never wrote fan letters to or drew fan art (I can’t draw anyway) for the radio hosts & shows I grew up listening to: Garrison Keillor, Norm Hitzges, Art Bell, Howard Stern, Kidd Kraddick, anything on KEOM 88.3 or WRR 101.1 and any number of other shows I would pass by at night trying to find a voice to carry me to sleep. I never said a thing to those people. I suck for that. But catspeare does not suck. Quite the opposite. It really feels good to see this. All of this.

(Okay I had to reblog this because my reply was too long.)

So Bruce Abbott is Jeffrey Combs’ son? Interesting… But that’s a tough choice. Can I still have both? At this point I don’t even care how weirdly almost-incestuous this is. I get Bruce Abbott as my husband and Jeffrey Combs as my lover, and I share him with my sister T’Sora. And T’Sora also gets Brad Dourif, who’s Jeffrey’s brother? How does that sound?

I was gonna suggest ‘morally questionable perverted grandpa’ for Brad, but brother works too.

(Hi my name is T’Sora and I have a weird old silverfox problem)

Nope. Not brother—Jus’ a scorned tiki-barman with a green-tinted moustache.

LET ME LOVE YOU, SCORNED TIKI-BARMAN!!!

We made an attempt at birdwatching today. That was Jon’s stated purpose in coming home; to take mum birdwatching. 

I say attempt, because we didn’t see a lot of…well, birds.  Three swans, three ducks (it was a marsh), some little guys flying rapidly away….we did however get to see some frogs and turtles, including a toad with more observational awareness than me (in that I would have stepped on him if he hadn’t hopped out of the way).

I may or may not have brought my walking stick.  Which I may or may not have privately been thinking of as a wizard staff.

We make Tumblr themes
