Let’s remember, Jesus was a Jewish man of color, born homeless to an unwed teenager, who spent his formative years as an illegal immigrant before returning to his home country to hang out with twelve men, prostitutes, and socially untouchable tax collectors while he taught a radical social doctrine of equality, love, and forgiveness that included paying taxes, free healthcare, and the sharing of resources within a community.

Happy Birthday to my favorite actor, Silas Weir Mitchell!
Hemingway and James Joyce were drinking buddies in Paris. Joyce was thin and bespectacled; Hemingway was tall and strapping. When they went out Joyce would get drunk, pick a fight with a bigger guy in the bar and then hide behind Hemingway and yell, “Deal with him, Hemingway. Deal with him.”
Between this and the story about him reassuring F. Scott Fitzgerald re dick size, I’m developing a picture of Hemingway as the mother hen of the disaffected white male literary set of the early 20th century.
He probably called up Steinbeck sometimes and was like I CAN’T EVEN WITH THESE DIPSHITS and Steinbeck was all “That’s what you get for living in Paris, asshole”.
You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment. People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously. Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life. Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day! So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!! Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions. Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it. With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!
We are right here!!
Often, people hide it because they don’t believe they deserve help or love. So don’t wait for the invitation. Let the people you love know it whether you think they might be depressed or not.
Okay, so those of you who made your opinion known yesterday, thank you! I will be doing a Halloween Song of the Day playlist, and already have the first 4 scheduled. Yay! Since it isn’t October yet, my Sunday song can’t be a Halloween song, but I’m going to get as close as I can.
This is Labyrinth, if you are unfamiliar. That is David Bowie as Jareth the Goblin King. Jennifer Connelly is Sarah. This was written and directed by Jim Henson, and the screenplay was by Terry Jones of Monty Python. If you are in your 20s and haven’t seen it yet, GET ON THAT. This was a large portion of my childhood and that of many other people I know.
I love the MC Escher- like set of this sequence, and the lyrics are just… “Everything I’ve done, I’ve done for you. I move the stars for no one.” In all seriousness, you have to see this movie, it’s great.
