American Indians are #NotHappy with Pharrell’s Elle magazine cover

The magazine has declared its July cover the singer-producer’s “best ever shoot,” but overwhelmingly negative responses from Native critics tell a different story.

Such backlash has precedent. The appropriation of the headdress — traditionally a symbol of authority and honor among Native peoples — for fashion purposes has a long and not-so-illustrious history.

These remind me of Mage: The Ascension.

whats the name of the artist(s)

  1. I couldn’t find the piece name or the artist but a reverse image search takes me to this feminist astrological website where this art is featured.
  2. Bladerunner by Oliver Wetter
  3. reverse image lookup did not have any luck finding a source for this image.
  4. Again, reverse image lookup did not lead to an artist source.
  5. by Jaxon Keller
  6. by Michael Komarck
  7. Again, no clear source on this piece. I was taken to Hasani Claxton’s work, but I’m not certain this is theirs.
  8. Couldn’t find an artist source.

“A 19.44 megabits per second upload speed is not only much faster than the radio frequency data transmission typically used in space exploration, it’s actually nearing the upper end of what you can get at home.”

Directed by Frances Bodomo, a Ghanian filmmaker based in New York City, ‘Afronauts’ is based on a true story. The film recently made its world premiere at the Sundance Film festival where Bodomo also picked up big prizes.

“On 16 July 1969, America prepares to launch Apollo 11. Thousands of miles away, the Zambia Space Academy hopes to beat America to the moon. Inspired by true events.”

I want to let people know about this app, especially for those people who suffer from social anxiety where telephone communications might be triggering or uncomfortable.

It’s called “TalkTo” and is available for iOs devices for FREE here and is also available in Google Play for Android devices! Essentially, it allows you to ask businesses questions by sending a text message instead of calling. For businesses that aren’t set up to answer a text message or an email (it will try to send it either way) a TalkTo agent will make the call FOR you, and then will text you back with the company’s response.

I have used this app to make reservations, check for stock, check store hours, and more. Certain businesses will have a higher response time than others but if you ask ahead of time then you won’t have a problem. I sent a restaurant a question this afternoon (see picture) and i had a response within 15 minutes. 

Give it a try!

OH MY FUCKING GOD THIS IS MEANT FOR ME

@kinstertime they made you an app
