The Dapper Rebels of Los Angeles, 1966

In the summer of 1965, riots broke out in the Watts neighborhood of southern Los Angeles. Over a six-day period, 34 people were killed, 1,032 injured and over 3,438 arrests were made. In 1966, LIFE magazine revisited the site of the worst riots America had ever seen in its history. The photo essay depicting the region’s ‘fearsome street gangs’ however, turned out more like a fashion shoot for dapper style…

This article is such an interesting look at the history of black fashion, quintessential “Los Angeles” style, and how we perceive early gang culture. I’m fascinated with the pride of dress shown by the “dapper rebels” and the dignity presented in their portraits and photos.

~Wherever I’m With You~


Some of the loved, and not so loved, Harry Potter characters!

Characters belong to JK Rowling.

I just really like thinking about all the Harry potter characters growing up and being happy.

I can’t stop laughing at Harry running the fuck awaythe boy who lived ladies and gentlemen.

….You realize, of course, that Hermione Granger lit a teacher on fire when she was eleven, and kept a person alive in a jar for a year when she was fourteen, and studies dark and forbidden magics for kicks, and is one of the brightest and strongest witches of her era. If she came at me, even wandless, I would aparate to Neptune to get away from her.

Hermione Granger also: 

  • punched Draco Malfoy in the nose for being an idiot 
  • purposefully performed a confundus charm on whatshsface WHILE HE WAS FLYING just so Ron would win (omfg that is so fucking dangerous) 
  • literally pulled a fucking Bourne Identity on her parents and managed to set them up in fucking Australia (jesus christ she literally made it so that she NEVER EXISTED wtf that’s so fucking 007)
  • Convinced the Ministry of Magic to give her an incredibly dangerous and volatile device that allowed her to ALTER TIMELINES COMPLETELY (just because she was so smart, literally, that is the reason, her “potential”) 
  • Has enough basic survival skills and badass magic to literally disappear to the middle of nowhere and flourish AND figure out Voldemort’s plot with Harry 
  • Hermione also figures out not only what Voldemort’s plan is, but generally how to beat it, WAY BEFORE VOLDEMORT EVER DOES. Why? because she is just that much smarter and better at magic than everybody else

in conclusion: Voldemort wishes he could be as awesome as Hermione, that’s why he wants to kill her so bad. 

Can we rehave this series with hermione as the protagonist. 

Hermione Granger and “That Time I Used the Power of Research and Deductive Reasoning to Make Sure Harry Didn’t Die”

Hermione Granger and “That time I figured shit out and literally ended up petrified for the cause and it took my friends weeks to figure out that I had the research on me”

Hermione Granger and “That Time I Was a Time Lord”

Hermione Granger and “That Time I Realized I was Hot and Smart and Saved Harry’s Ass with Research. Again. All the Time. Really, He Would Have Died Without Me.” 

Hermione Granger and “That time Harry was too emo to actually do shit so I did shit in his name because I am the power behind the throne clearly also PS fought evil deatheaters and won”

Hermione Granger and “That Time I told Harry about the Dangers of Copying off Somebody’s else’s work that wasn’t mine and OH LOOK I WAS RIGHT”

Hermione Granger and “That Time I let Harry Decide Where to Go and What To do and we ended up wandering the forests of dean for like 5 months before saving his ass at Hogwarts” 

OH LOOK I WAS RIGHT

all of the above ^^

best. flashmob. ever.

I am legit in tears.

oh wow

wow

YES GOOD

Goosebumps

Goosebumps all over

Wow why am I crying this was amazing. Started welling up when the horns came out holy shit can’t even fucking deal right now.

Proof that humanity, when given the opportunity to appreciate something beautiful and creative, will always gather in droves to see and enjoy that which is given.

It was really hard to not cry but I did anyway

Well, I’m grinning from ear to ear now.

Holy shit, I would love to do this one day. I should pick up my horn again..

I literally cried at hearing this

This is pure amazing.

Going to sound like a broken record but totally in tears after listening to this because it was so amazing.

Yet more proof that music is the universal language of the soul.

Oh my gosh.

I LOVED THIS. The conductor in the stripey polo shirt! The choir members holding babies! The spectators singing and conducting along with the performers! It turned something—orchestral music—that’s usually formal and removed from everyday life into something universal and accessible and wonderful. And OF COURSE I cried.

Ludwig von Beethoven: making people’s hearts swell and eyes overflow since 1824.

WHY DOES THIS MAKE ME CRY? I CAN’T UNDERSTAND WHY IT MAKES ME CRY.
