"I’m writing a play about the nature of truth, and how difficult it is to convey the truth when everybody is speaking a different language. For example, the word ‘terrorist’ and the word ‘freedom fighter’ are used to refer to the exact same people at the exact same time. With everyone speaking differently, truth is almost impossible to agree upon. Yet believing in the existence of truth is the only thing that keeps us from devolving into tribal warfare. Because without the existence of truth, the person who is most powerful becomes the person who is right."
Kids raised on the Native American reservations who find themselves stuck between the traditions and values of their culture and the world around them who don’t understand and tends to misappropriate their history. (IT’S A REALLY OBVIOUS METAPHOR FOR BEING A SHAPESHIFTER AND LIVING IN TWO WORDS BC I’M SHITTY LIKE THAT.)
Asshole teens who grew up on stories of the trickster god Coyote, a popular culture hero that all class ditching, cigarette-smoking-behind-the-creepy-old motel, dreaming-of-bigger-and-better-things underdogs can relate to.
Fiercely loyal to their pack of bike-riding hooligan friends. Hell, they even chipped in to get Alma that sewing machine so she could stitch Coyotes in red embroidery floss to the backs of their older brothers’ leather jackets. It looks really fucking badass and was totally worth getting punched in the arm repeatedly for ‘borrowing’ said jackets without permission.
When weird shit starts happening in their town (I’m talking those inexplicable lights over the desert, the disappearances of town folk) these little shits band together ‘Attack the Block’ style to protect what’s theirs.
Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.
Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.
THIS HONESTLY BREAKS MY HEART WTF LET’S RELOCATE THIS LIL GUY BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE
“My grandmother always told me: ‘It doesn’t matter if you’re crippled, blind, or crazy. All this world cares about is how you survive. As long as you don’t do drugs or go to jail, you’re gonna be fine.’” “What do you mean by: ‘The world only cares about how you survive?’” “The only thing people care about is if you’re working, and if you’re paying your taxes. I worked for the city for six years. During the time that I was working, I was Mr. Matthew Phillips. The moment that I wasn’t able to work anymore, I became a social security number.’”
