Icelanders are proud of their language and yet also speak English with disarming style, choosing words carefully—for example, a photographer tells me that he prefers 35mm film cameras over digital because “film has more charisma.” Or, a woman says to me of her life, she is “always busy with the moment”—not busy because of her job and kids and spin class but “with the moment,” as if each moment is her partner.

- Vintage inspired optical frame handcrafted from titanium and acetate and featuring filigreed engraved temples and bridge and genuine pins on the frame front. Inspired by 1930’s American eyewear and reminiscent of the original OP–505.

I would buy oliver peoples glasses if they weren’t so gosh darned expensive. Have to settle for the poor man’s version — Warby Parker

"Waste of good ammo. It’s my privilege to buy you a replacement box."

"All self-respecting whites have a moral responsibility to support our growing number of martyrs to the failed experiment called diversity."

"I thank all Police, you are the ‘Thin Blue Line’ protecting normal Americans from aggressive and entitled primitive savages. America is surely at the tipping point."

Just a few quotes (in case it’s hard to read) from that collection of donation messages for Darren Wilson.

Does anyone else want to say it’s not about race?

That’s it. I’m signing up for that one-way mission to mars.

The Ferguson Police Department held a press conference on the Michael Brown shooting this morning.

They distributed a nineteen-page dossier alleging that Brown had shoplifted a pack of cigarettes from a convenience store prior to being shot.

Nineteen pages of evidence about Brown shoplifting a pack of cigarettes. No information whatsoever about his murder.

I really was planning on staying out of the commentary because it isn’t really in my place, but as it continues to develop further I keep getting more and more sickened by every little bit of it. This entire thing has been disgusting, and I find it especially unbelievable that there has been no firm reaction from anyone to hold anyone accountable. Not for the ridiculous shooting, not for the disgusting police response, not for the farce of an explanation the police threw together and presented today — almost a week later — to try to distract from the main issue and demonize the victim. Nothing. Lack of accountability breeds a permissive attitude. This will only continue to happen until people are held responsible for their actions. The US is really good at talking out of both sides of their mouth. Freedom! (as long as you are not black, asian, middle-eastern, native american, african, of different religions other than judeo-christian, LGBT, the press, etc, etc, etc). What a disgrace.
