Mark Twain on Slavery, How Religion Is Used to Justify Injustice, and What His Mother Taught Him About Compassion
Via Braulio Tavares
" There was, however, one small incident of my boyhood days which touched this matter, and it must have meant a good deal to me or it would not have stayed in my memory, clear and sharp, vivid and shadowless, all these slow-drifting years. We had a little slave boy whom we had hired from some one, there in Hannibal. He was from the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and had been brought away from his family and his friends, half way across the American continent, and sold. He was a cheery spirit, innocent and gentle, and the noisiest creature that ever was, perhaps. All day long he was singing, whistling, yelling, whooping, laughing — it was maddening, devastating, unendurable. At last, one day, I lost all my temper, and went raging to my mother, and said Sandy had been singing for an hour without a single break, and I couldn’t stand it, and wouldn’t she please shut him up. The tears came into her eyes, and her lip trembled, and she said something like this—
“Poor thing, when he sings, it shows that he is not remembering, and that comforts me; but when he is still, I am afraid he is thinking, and I cannot bear it. He will never see his mother again; if he can sing, I must not hinder it, but be thankful for it. If you were older, you would understand me; then that friendless child’s noise would make you glad.”
It was a simple speech, and made up of small words, but it went home, and Sandy’s noise was not a trouble to me any more. She never used large words, but she had a natural gift for making small ones do effective work. She lived to reach the neighborhood of ninety years, and was capable with her tongue to the last — especially when a meanness or an injustice roused her spirit."
One of the things Im gonna miss is Tom + Lorenzo´s analysis of Mad Men episodes through the wardrobe of the characters.
"There were some powerful color motifs playing out this week,
establishing roles, drawing connections, and revealing emotional states.
While color absolutely exploded in all the background players, for the
movers and shakers of the soon-to-be-shuttered SC&P, it was all
browns and blues this week, reminding them that nothing lasts forever
but the earth and sky." read more clicking here>
A New Anthology Will Pay Tribute to 'Peanuts' and Charles Schulz - NYTimes.com
They may not show
signs of age, but in October, Charlie Brown and the “Peanuts” gang will
turn 65. To celebrate, KaBoom, the all-ages imprint of Boom Studios, is
publishing “Peanuts: A Tribute to Charles M. Schulz,” a 112-page
hardcover by a team of contributors, which will include new comic strips
and short stories, pinups and recollections of the influence of Snoopy
and of Schulz, who died in 2000.
Matt Gagnon, the
editor in chief of Boom Studios, described the project as “a giant love
letter from creators all over the world,” including Matt Groening,
Patrick McDonnell (“Mutts”), Stan Sakai (“Usagi Yojimbo”), Megan Brennan
(“Adventure Time”), Raina Telgemeier (“Smile”) and Jeff Lemire (“Sweet

Jon Stewart Breaks Down All the Many, Many Things Wrong With the Media’s Coverage of Baltimore
After running through some clips of white people rioting for no reason, Jon Stewart took on the Baltimore riots last night, with a long segment that covered America's long history of neglecting our inner cities, the National Guard threat level, and, most humorous, Wolf Blitzer looking like a dummy. Someone get Adam Sandler over to CNN, immediately.
A Biblioteca Parque é uma vitória da cultura e seu contingenciamento é lamentável
"Se os números mostram a necessidade de adequação aos contingenciamentos do orçamento, ficamos sempre pensando qual é o significado da palavra planejamento em certas decisões públicas.
Afinal, a Biblioteca Parque do Estado (BPE) é um espaço que representa (ao lado de outras unidades bem-sucedidas como as de Manguinhos e da Rocinha) uma das vitórias da cultura sobre a política, de uma política da cultura ou, simplesmente, do imposto bem gasto. É um empreendimento público em que qualquer cidadão, de qualquer matriz ideológica, percebe a qualidade da proposta. Mesmo não acompanhando seu dia a dia de perto, basta conversar com qualquer frequentador para saber que algo novo foi criado naquele espaço para milhares de pessoas da cidade.
Seu contingenciamento de dinheiro e seu parcial fechamento nos fazem pensar no porquê de se cortar do que já é tão pouco. Como podem não prever recursos para ao menos dois anos seguidos de um programa tão bem-sucedido?"
"The message throughout this hour, which was filled with visual and
thematic callbacks to the history of the show, was that Don Draper and
his cronies were dinosaurs. They had been fed into the machine so
smoothly that they didn’t even realize they’d been digested. They were
done; they were no longer in power, and they were the last people to
There have been innumerable situations in which the senior employees of Don’s firm -- all the various incarnations of it
-- have seemed clueless, out of touch, tin-eared, unwilling or unable
to truly understand the changes the world was going through. They all
ape the fashions of the times and have grown their hair out, but do they
grasp that many centers of power have shifted radically in the last
decade? Not really. They tried to harness the energy of the youthquake
of the ‘60s here and there, but the true import of all the cultural and
social changes of the last decade more or less passed them by.
But that may not matter as much as their inability to spot the
financial evolutions affecting not just their business but all of
corporate America. "
High Sparrow' - Who Won Game of Thrones this week?
"In Westeros, power is easy to grab and nearly impossible to hold. A high and mighty new title is just an opportunity to make all kinds of enemies. A crown on the head just paints a target on the back. Every sweet taste of victory is accompanied by the sour aftertaste of responsibility. You got to the top of the mountain and you ran out of space and now you're just grasping at clouds. Now what?"
" Presa em 1971, Inês ficou na casa por 96 dias. Oito anos depois, entregou um relatório à OAB em que revelou a existência do local, apontou os codinomes usados pelos torturadores e narrou os suplícios que viveu.
"Fui várias vezes espancada e levava choques elétricos na cabeça, nos pés, nas mãos e nos seios", contou. "Um dos mais brutais torturadores arrastou-me pelo chão, segurando pelos cabelos. Depois tentou estrangular-me e só me largou quando perdi os sentidos. Esbofetearam-me e me deram pancadas na cabeça".
"Fui estuprada duas vezes por Camarão [codinome de um militar] e era obrigada a limpar a cozinha completamente nua, ouvindo gracejos e obscenidades os mais grosseiros".
Abalada pelas sessões de tortura, Inês tentou se matar quatro vezes. Sobreviveu. !
Offended PEN members refuse to participate in annual gala because Charlie Hebdo got an award
“If PEN as a free
speech organization can’t defend and celebrate people who have been
murdered for drawing pictures, then frankly the organization is not
worth the name,” Mr. Rushdie said. “What I would say to both Peter and
Michael and the others is, I hope nobody ever comes after them.”
PEN issued a statement extolling
Charlie Hebdo but respecting the Shameful Six for their “convictions”,
misguided as they were.
And the PEN statement gets the aims of the
But, based on their own statements, we believe that Charlie Hebdo‘s
intent was not to ostracize or insult Muslims, but rather to reject
forcefully the efforts of a small minority of radical extremists to
place broad categories of speech off limits—no matter the purpose,
intent, or import of the expression.
E eles? Caso MC Melody ofusca erotização de meninos no funk
"Enquanto o verso mais polêmico de Melody diz "para todas as
recalcadas, aí vai minha resposta, se é bonito ou se é feio, mas é foda
ser gostosa", o refrão mais conhecido de MC Brinquedo (13 anos) afirma:
"Tu vai lamber, tu vai dar beijo, tu vai mamar com essa boquinha de
MC Pedrinho, 12, é conhecido como desbocado: "Como é
bom transar com a p*** profissional. Vem f**** no clima quente, no calor
de 30 graus".
MC Pikachu, de 15 anos, vai além: "Estava na rua, fumando um baseado, chegou a novinha e pediu para dar um trago (...) Dá a b***** para mim, (dá) o c* e fuma".
Além da erotização infantil, a diferença no tratamento entre funkeiros e
funkeiras mirins leva a uma discussão sobre gênero: a sexualização dos
meninos é permitida e a das meninas não?"
An illustrated guide to the many women Don Draper has slept with on “Mad Men”
When people talk about the women of “Mad Men,” they’re most often
referring to Peggy and Joan, the two female characters that have perhaps
been most fully allowed to act independently on their own desires. Don
Draper’s pair of ex-wives, Megan and Betty, have also been central
characters in their own rights, but any viewer could tell you that the
show’s cast of (intriguing) female characters isn’t limited — not with
the way Don sleeps around.
Artist Hannah Choi decided to illustrate each of Don’s many (many) sexual partners for her series, “The Women of Don Draper,” in order to get a better look at both the adulterous “Mad Men” antihero and the women he chooses. Each woman is drawn to reflect a person with as much depth
and, in some cases, as many flaws as their shared consort. All are
beautiful and beautifully illustrated, but most importantly, each
character is unique.
Uma das entrevistas mais barra-pesadas, da qual tomei parte, em termos de emoções, foi com INÊS ETIENNE ROMEU, para o Pasquim, onde ela contou pela primeira vez publicamente o que acontecia na Casa da Morte em Petrópolis. Até hoje penso naquilo e me arrepio. As pessoas costumam dizer quando alguém morre... descansou. No caso de Inês, que tentou se matar quatro vezes e vivia em invalidezes, imagino que foi realmente e finalmente descanso. As sérias sequelas cessaram. Inês é morta. Não sem antes mandar ver mais uma vez mais uma voz na recente Comissão da Verdade, tirando torturadores (e esqueletos) do armário.

Mad Men’s Matthew Weiner Made His Cast and Crew Watch These Movies
In conjunction with the Mad Men exhibit at the Museum of the Moving Image, the series creator has revealed 10 movies that helped inform and inspire his Emmy-winning AMC drama. (The 10 films will be screened during a special viewing series.) Per the museum’s Web site, the following selections “had an important influence on the creation of Mad Men, movies that made a deep impression on him and were required viewing for people working on the show.”
Chicago artist Ashley A. Woods created these portraits as a submission for an upcoming comic book anthology called APB: Artists Against Police Brutality. Her collection honors recent victims of police violence through warm, humanizing images. She also gives context for the ways in which each was killed.

The film Les Bosquets brings the audience in a place where art and the
power of image interweave. Based on the story of Ladj Ly and the
performance of the ballet Les Bosquets of New York City Ballet (2014)
inspired by the riots in the French suburbs in 2005, JR reveals its
experience in the ghetto of Montfermeil where he created his first
project, Portrait of a Generation. This film is a continuation of this
10 years project, for which he uses various means of expression and
narration : video archives, choreography and testimony.

Paris anuncia medidas radicais para impedir a gentrificação | ArchDaily Brasil
A prefeitura de Paris publicou um plano governamental radical para deter o processo de gentrificação pelo
qual passam os bairros centrais da capital francesa: através de um
comunicado oficial, o governo regional anunciou uma lista de 257
endereços - 8.021 apartamentos - onde a prefeitura terá o direito de
impedir a venda dos imóveis com a finalidade de convertê-los em moradias
Os planos de Anne Hidalgo - primeira
mulher a assumir a prefeitura de Paris - apontam tanto para incrementar
as opções de aluguel subsidiado como para assegurar zonas residenciais
bem conectadas a serviços e equipamentos no centro histórico a
populações de baixo poder aquisitivo, evitando a desapropriação e
expulsão dessas pessoas para as periferias e a consequente ocupação das
regiões centrais por grupos de alto poder aquisitivo - os chamados guetos milionários.
