I will be removing myself from situations
If something is happening, well, I certainly don’t want anything to do with that
please reblog this and put in he tags he my chemical romance lyrics that you imprinted on as a 13 year old that made you go fully buck wild but looking back you’re like um what was 13 year old me going through?????……mine was “tell me i’m a bad man kick me like a stray / tell me i’m an angel / take this to my grave”
“The world is, I suppose, too big to fix all at once.” (captain america: marvel snapshots).
I’m a big fan of Mark Russell’s work. His Flinstones series was incredible! This seems extremely relevant to today’s issues - although I can only imagine what this would’ve looked like coming from a black writer.
However, I love that this hits at one of my all time favorite aspects of Steve’s character. When called out about an oversight he’s made - he doesn’t just listen, he adapts. Largely because most writers weren’t all that interested in talking about life in less affluent areas (unless they were looking for gangs as a big bad that week), you don’t see a lot of comic book heroes in these areas.
Here, Russell has a character confront Cap about the lack of Avengers presence in his neighborhood after the Mad Bomb situation (from a 70s issue of Cap when Falcon still had the super deep V). I love that Steve not only takes the criticism but tries to rectify some of the damage.
Once again, I adore Steve Rogers. This was a wonderful issue and a viewpoint we don’t often seen in comic books.
I apologize for getting hyper local but I AM SO PISSED ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON IN CHICAGO RIGHT NOW.
We’ve been in the streets for weeks. People have been doing the work, building on requests activists have made for YEARS.
And Mayor Lori Lightfoot just spit in our fucking faces.
Chicago is the only major metropolitan area in the US that’s gotten NO concessions from city government from these protests. They completely refuse to listen to us.
There was a city council meeting today. I thought maybe they’d give us fucking something.
Activists have been asking to defund the police. Lori Lightfoot’s refused to entertain it.
Activists have been asking to pass an ordinance called CPAC, short for civilian police accountability council. It would create an elected board that would have hiring and firing power over cops and control the police budget. BLM here ha made it a priority demand.
Lori Lightfoot refuses to pass it, saying vaguely that she has “concerns.”
Young activists have asked to take cops out of schools. It was blocked by a member of the city council, and Lori Lightfoot doesn’t support it.
Fuck, Lori Lightfoot didn’t even make Juneteenth into an official holiday! Like, even the some of the shitty racist aldermen (like Cappleman and Gardiner) figured out that could be an easy political win for them to make them look like they cared about this. It passed through city council easily! But Lori Lightfoot said no because it would “be too expensive.”
When Lightfoot was elected, some people said she’d govern as a ‘progressive.’ She’s black, and queer, and claims to be interested in progress. Hell, she’s been doing media rounds this week, talking about how to combat racism on CNN and on an NBC roundtable!
But Lori Lightfoot was a prosecutor. Lori Lightfoot has close ties to Chicago’s FOP. And even though the cops seem to hate Lori Lightfoot a lot…she still loves them. She always goes on about our “brave officers.” Fuck that.
Lori Lightfoot can fuck off forever.
If you’re in Chicago…

Love is messy. And horrible and selfish and bold. It’s not finding your perfect half, It’s the trying and reaching and failing. Love is being willing to ruin your good painting for the chance at a great one.

just stumbled across Francisco Soria Aedo’s work and first off: really good painter, super talented. He mainly did portraits and neoclassical but I really like are his expressions, which do show up in his neoclassical work. lots of people smiling and having fun and it’s just very cute
this is one of my favorites
heres a couple more examples!
…i dont thing I’ve ever seen this style with people smiling…
