i love how erect Pink Floyd audiences are in photos.
Pink Floyd is such a mellow sound sometimes but the faces and the shoulders are always packed tight and at high attention.
i love that.
And the audiences were usually quiet. One can watch something as late as “P.U.L.S.E” and see the audience standing rapt and focused on the spectacle unfolding before them.

The Ukrainian Famine of 1932
This famine is believed to have been almost entirely man-made. The year 1932 saw virtually all food produced by Ukrainian farmers being forcefully taken by the USSR, leaving millions without sustenance—the vast percentage of whom simply died of hunger.
One largely unreported fact was just how many Ukrainian citizens resorted to cannibalism. A certain story tells us of a man who murdered his wife and calmly cooked her body in a soup, while others tell of children and babies who were eaten alive by their starving families—all of which took place while the smiling, jovial face of Joseph Stalin was being beamed around the entire world.
There are people who deny this today, like there are Holocaust deniers.
The Holodomor. Don’t you dare forget it.
Everyone watch the Soviet Story!
NY SAFE ACT registration date has passed. I think I’m going to celebrate by finally getting off my ass and getting my concealed carry permit.

And dying in your beds, many years from now,
would you be willin’ to trade ALL the days, from this day to that,
for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies
that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take…
Still gets me every time.
I always get super excited when politics starts to trend on tumblr. I think “Ooo people that want to discuss politics finally”.
Then in about three seconds I realize they do not want to discuss politics with me.
Do you know what gets me? Income tax, I pay taxes on my paycheck. Then I use my paycheck to purchases goods or services. These goods and services are taxed ass well. So this is double taxation and I feel that it is unconditional. We can have an income tax OR sales tax but not both
