next levellllll ish.

This photo from my last bout pretty much sums up my political feelings for today (smash it, smash all of it). After listening to today’s disgraceful question period, I dropped by Murray Rankin’s constituency office to sign a petition against Bill C-23, the (Un)Fair Elections Act, something I had been meaning to do for a few weeks. If you wanna do something similar, find more info here: http://murrayrankin.ndp.ca/take-actionI mean I know we’ve got much deeper problems in this country, political and social and otherwise, but #stopharper seems like a pretty good place to start.

Once there were brook trout in the streams in the mountains. You could see them standing in the amber current where the white edges of their fins wimpled softly in the flow. They smelled of moss in your hand. Polished and muscular and torsional. On their backs were vermiculate patterns that were maps of the world in its becoming. Maps and mazes. Of a thing which could not be put back. Not be made right again. In the deep glens where they lived all things were older than man and they hummed of mystery.

Last week the B.C. government passed Bill 4, opening up BC parks to industry. You can sign a petition against this travesty here. More info here. Direct action hopefully coming soon.

This is a culture that overemphasizes the sort of heteronormative thing that for women the most important relationship of their lives is going to be the dude that they’re going to fall in love with, as if everybody is straight and that this is the script, and yet, look from my experience as a brother, my sister’s longest, most painful heartbreak was a Sula-like heartbreak, where the most important relationship of her life was a woman. And yet she never had a space to acknowledge or honor it until after it was all over. And that idea of the controlling male or the controlling paradigm that tends to leave that story out I think is very, very important.

#WithSyria
Via The Independent:

An evocative YouTube video featuring Banksy, Idris Elba and alternative rock band Elbow has been released as part of a global vigil to mark the third anniversary of the crisis in Syria.
The charity video tribute, which is just over a minute-and-a-half long, brings one of graffiti artist Banksy’s most iconic stencils to life - set against a haunting backdrop of heartbreak and bloodshed.
His girl with a heart balloon artwork, which he has recreated for the #WithSyria campaign, is reworked in the guise of a young Syrian refugee.
She holds on to the balloon as it rises over the civil war-torn country, passing buildings destroyed by bombs and children kneeling next to the bodies of the dead.
As she ascends, she is joined by other children and adults, each holding on to a red balloon. British actor Idirs Elba provides the voiceover, asking those watching to “stand with Syria”.

And then also it’s important to remember that the necessary conditions of our lives—those things that seem to us unavoidably to be the case—are not only debated by physicists and philosophers but exist, irrationally, in the minds of the rest of us, beneath contempt intellectually, perhaps, but we still experience them as permanent facts. The climate was one of those facts. We did not think it could change. That is, we always knew we could do a great deal of damage to this planet, but even the most hubristic among us had not imagined we would ever be able to fundamentally change its rhythms and character, just as a child who has screamed all day at her father still does not expect to see him lie down on the kitchen floor and weep. Now, do you think that’ll get me off the hook with my (slightly tiresome and judgmental) future granddaughter? I worry.
