  • hookedononyx:

    i’ve found that the best women
    live within. they brew
    themselves inside,
    taking in the pain and
    the pleasure of life.
    No doubt they are sad-
    they have to bear the weight
    of their worlds.
    Though other girls may be
    perceived to have ‘more fun’,
    the women within
    are the true artists who
    can construct your soul,
    and make you grow;
    make you feel alive.

  • (Video) What did Palestine look like in 1896?

    A film footage of Palestine in 1896 was recently published online thanks to Lobster Films. It shows Palestinians of all faiths – Christians, Jews and Muslims – living side by side, and praying side by side. I transcribed the narration below.

    15 years later, the cinema is taking its first steps. Cameramen employed by the Lumiere Brothers filming in Jerusalem’s station, provide the first moving pictures taken in Palestine. From now on, the camera’s a recording eye and what it records is this: A society much like that of Cairo, Damascus, or Beirut, in an Arab city much like any other.

    By the end of the 19th century, Palestine has 500,000 inhabitants, of whom 30,000 live in Jerusalem. A veiled woman, a Sunni Muslim, one of the majority. An orthodox Jew. He too turns away from the camera. Here we have an Armenian pope. Each of the Christian denominations has its church here in the holy city. The holy places of the three religions are scattered across a few hundred square meters. The Great Mosque is close to Christ’s tomb. Further along at the foot of the wailing wall, a Jew is reciting a prayer. He is wearing a Turkish tarboush, and although he prays in Hebrew his everyday language is Arabic. Jews form half the population of Jerusalem, but in the country as a whole they make up less than 5% of the total. Christians account for 10% and Muslims 85%. All of them are subjects of the Sultan of Constantinople. There are no frontiers in the Ottoman Empire. There are administrative divisions in which, in this immense territory, Palestine occupies a mere 27,000 square kilometers, made up of three small districts, in the south of the province of Damascus. 

    According to the Electronic Intifada’s Jalal Abukhater, the film was recovered in Paris, February 2007.

  • damn i just watched the movie Her and cried multiple times throughout. one hour in i had to temporarily stop and write someone a love letter. that was beautiful. it really made me think. i feel like a very different person, i feel very different about a lot of things and people, and i want to say so many things to various people.

  • "I’ve been sitting here thinking about all the things I wanted to apologize to you for. All the pain we caused each other. Everything I put on you. Everything I needed you to be or needed you to say. I’m sorry for that. I’ll always love you ‘cause we grew up together and you helped make me who I am. I just wanted you to know there will be a piece of you in me always, and I’m grateful for that. Whatever someone you become, and wherever you are in the world, I’m sending you love. You’re my friend to the end."
    Her (2013)

    I just returned from Al Shifa Hospital. The area had been targeted moments before I arrived, and it was also announced that 10 children have died (so far) in a horrific attack on a park in al Shati refugee camp (with 40 others injured). I heard the explosions from my home. They shook my building….
