no but the best part is how he got the name:
his name was originally “potatoes,” and his owner, willoughby bertie, told the stable lad who helped him to write the horse’s name on a feed bin. the boy misheard it as, literally “pot-eight-o’s” and wrote it with 8 o’s. bertie found it so funny that he kept that as the horses name.

This is the most beautiful horse-related story I’ve ever heard.

Would it be weird if I changed my last name to Potoooooooo?

I feel like I’m caught in this place between accepting things as they are with myself (sweet love) and being so very angry with myself for things (tough love).

ergh.

“32,975”

That’s the number of arrest warrants issued in Ferguson last year for nonviolent crimes. Compare that to the population of 21,135 people.

Ferguson is making bank off its own citizens

(via micdotcom)

"White citizens were stopped less than 13% of the time despite making up 29% of the population"

At some point I’ll stop talking about Ferguson. Today is not that day.

Memory Lapses in Mental Illness: Can Any of You Relate?

tequilamockingbird2015:

I took a psychobiology class on depression and anxiety. My professor stated that disorders like PTSD and depression are, on the biological level, related to your body being in the fight-or-flight state for far too long. This means excess cortisol, which damages the hippocampus.

He then mentioned that people with depression or PTSD tend to have severe memory lapses.

Which kind of floored me, because since I’ve been sick I’ve noticed just how awful my memory is. It used to be excellent, but now… I forget parts of my autobiographical memory. Someone tells me “hey remember when we did this?” and I just stare at them blankly because I have no recollection of that whatsoever.

The scariest thing was when I forgot my PIN number. Which I’ve had, without incident, for years. I just walked up to an ATM and suddenly… I couldn’t remember it. Not at all. It was terrifying and it scared my sister too.

Can anyone else relate?

GAD. And I was actually thinking to myself last night, ‘man, my memory is crap, what happened?’. Like, I can remember little scenes here and there, but it’s more like… I can see some scenes, but never the whole picture? I keep finding my partner telling me or reminding me about stuff I don’t remember either. :/

“The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people’s expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn’t care if you are a white person who likes black people; it’s still going to find a way to infect how you deal with people who don’t look like you. Yes, racism looks like hate, but hate is just one manifestation. Privilege is another. Access is another. Ignorance is another. Apathy is another. And so on. So while I agree with people who say no one is born racist, it remains a powerful system that we’re immediately born into. It’s like being born into air: you take it in as soon as you breathe. It’s not a cold that you can get over. There is no anti-racist certification class. It’s a set of socioeconomic traps and cultural values that are fired up every time we interact with the world. It is a thing you have to keep scooping out of the boat of your life to keep from drowning in it. I know it’s hard work, but it’s the price you pay for owning everything.”

THAT’S THE PRICE YOU PAY FOR OWNING EVERYTHING

(via queerfabulousmermaid)

this is a super important explanation to think about whenever you feel like telling someone that something isn’t racist because you don’t hate x person.

Soooo the fursona generator is a beautiful thing, and I want to draw a bunch of these, but especially: 

  • lilac reindeer. it runs a jimmy carter fanblog. it lives alone in a dense forgotten wilderness.
  • cream and pink whale. it has an unknowable amoutn of eyes. it shivers even when it’s not cold.
  • zombie cardinal. it floats about a foot off the ground. it speaks a forgotten and ancient language both disturbing and enchanting to mortal ears.

My new warm-up sketch material.

vampire seal. it consumes only blood. its back is covered in candles which flicker ominously.

Spirit + songs

Love this movie and its music so much. I can’t even say how many times I’ve watched it.

This movie made me cry way more than the Lion King. Still does.
