Here's what I know:

It takes two seconds to be nice to someone.

Think three steps ahead.

7 powerful times music triumphed over censorship

2. Neil Young’s classic protest song destroyed American censorship.

While many were at a loss for words after four unarmed Kent State University students were shot to death by the Ohio National Guard on May 4, 1970, for protesting Richard Nixon’s Cambodian Campaign, one rock group composed a song that forever shaped our understanding of the events. Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young’s “Ohio” was quickly banned on local radio stations by Ohio Gov. James Rhodes, which only served to increase the song’s popularity, launching it to No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100.

If there’s one way to make sure something is popular in America, make it forbidden.

When she talks I hear the revolution
In her hips there’s revolution
When she walks the revolution’s coming
In her kiss I taste the revolution

Deputy who killed former Napster COO after drifting into the bike lane while distracted by his laptop will not face charges because he was answering a work-related email.

OH OKAY.

I accidentally killed someone, you guys, but I was just doing research for an article I’m writing, so that makes it ok. That’s how it works, right?

LTMC: Meanwhile, 16-year olds get prosecuted for manslaughter for texting while driving.  But don’t worry, police don’t get special treatment.

The Baltimore Bottle Cap Factory That Became a Haven for Musicians and Artists

Since its construction in the 19th century, the Victorian-style warehouse on Baltimore’s Guilford Avenue has been a site for innovation, but in the last 100 years of its history, the nature of that creativity has changed. When it was first built, it was home to the Crown Cork & Seal Co., which used the space to produce bottling machines and about one-half the world’s supply of Crown Cork bottle caps (the invention of its founder, William Painter).

Crown Cork & Seal relocated to Philadelphia in the late 1950s, and by the ’60s, new businesses had moved in, including Copy Cat Printing, which placed a billboard bearing its name on the roof, earning the building its nickname, the Copycat. Most businesses moved out in the 1980s, and gradually the space converted into residences. Today, more than 140 people live in the Copycat, including scores of artists, musicians, and other creative types.

In 2011, Alex Wein took a year off from college in San Fransisco, and when he moved back to Baltimore, he immediately got an apartment in the Copycat. “I soon realized what a machine it was; all these people cranking out these projects in all kinds of mediums: music, art, performance. So you start meeting your neighbors and they invite you into their places. It was a creative explosion,” he said.

Tell creepy men on the internet how you really feel

juliagazdag:

How about sharing THIS far and wide, rather than leaked nude photos of celebrities? After all, the photos being shared were never publicly released for circulation, but the assholes named in this article have made their statements online, with intention, and this article just points out their hypocrisy.
