Blackfish - Trailer

Beyond the lies, beneath the deception, the truth will surface.

Magnolia Pictures has debuted the trailer for the chilling Sundance documentary Blackfish, directed Gabriela Cowperthwaite, about orcas in captivity. 

Holy shit. 

OKAY, WE NEED TO REBLOG THE FUCK OUT OF THIS. EVEN IF YOU’RE NOT AN ANIMAL PERSON, YOUR FOLLOWERS NEED TO SEE THIS. ESPECIALLY DURING THE HEIGHT OF VACATION SEASON. DO NOT SUPPORT SEA PARKS WITH CAPTIVE WHALES. IT’S NOT ENVIRONMENTAL PROPAGANDA (I can’t believe I even used those words) IT’S A REAL ISSUE AND IT’S NOT A MATTER OF PROOF, IT’S A MATTER OF COVERING IT UP AND IGNORING 

Okay let me tell you some shit about Orcas I found out while doing a report on them

Orcas are smart ass mother fuckers. In the wild they hunt fish in pods so they can create a net of bubbles to capture fish and then eat them. They also hunt in pods so they can create waves to knock seals off of ice flows. Orcas are so smart they form societies based on their ancestry so they can care for their young and survive.The entire ocean is full of orcas that are smart enough to distinguish between humans and actual prey. And I know this because ORCAS HAVE NEVER KILLED HUMANS IN THE WILD. NEVER. THESE ANIMALS ARE SO SMART THEY KNOW AFTER A QUICK GLANCE THAT “HEY THAT’S NOT A SEAL. THAT’S NOT SOMETHING I WANT TO EAT, IT’S A GROSS HUMAN” 

GUESS WHAT ELSE, MOTHERFUCKER? THE ONLY KNOWN DEATHS FROM ORCA ATTACKS HAVE BEEN IN CAPTIVITY. 

WE HUMANS TOOK THESE MAGNIFICENT CREATURES FROM THEIR HOMES AND PUT THEM IN THE EQUIVALENT OF A BATHTUB AND THEN WE GET UPSET WHEN THEY ATTACK US. IT’S NOT THE WHALES FAULT.

AND YOU KNOW THOSE “CUTESY” FLOPPED OVER FINS? THAT’S ACTUALLY CAUSED BY THE TANKS BEING SO SHALLOW AND ROUND. IN THE WILD ORCAS CAN GO THOUSANDS OF FEET DEEP AND THE WATER PRESSURE IS WHAT KEEPS THE FINS UP, BUT IN THE TANKS THE WHALE IS STUCK SWIMMING IN A CIRCLE SO IT DEVELOPS A CRIPPLED FIN. 

SO DON’T EVER TELL ME WHALES IN CAPTIVITY IS A GOOD THING, BECAUSE YOU’RE WRONG MOTHERFUCKER.

SOURCES SO YOU CAN VERIFY THAT THIS SHIT IS TRUE.

Omnivoracious: Uncharted Waters: Joe Hill Explores Neil Gaiman's The Ocean at the End of the Lane

neil-gaiman:

WARNING: This wonderful piece/interview by Joe Hill does contains spoilers — or at least information on things that happen in the book. But it also ends with a pancake recipe, which makes it the weirdest interview I’ve ever done. If you make the pancakes let me know how you get on…

Today, on the Tel Aviv Pride Parade, our queer-anarchist activist group, Mashpritzot, protested against pinkwashing and the “gay” community’s priorities. The group painted themselves pink in protest against pinkwashing - the cynical use of the Israeli “gay” community in order to paint Israel as a “liberal”, “progressive” country, and divert attention from the occupation and apartheid against the Palestinians.

They also carried signs protesting the “gay” community’s priorities, reading: “While you fight for gay marriage, LGBTQs are sleeping on the street”, “While you fight for the right to have children, LGBTQ youth are facing parental violence”, “One quarter of bisexuals suffer from poor health”, and more.

In the middle of the Pride Parade, they spread a huge rainbow flag and fell on it, feigning death. The sign seen in the picture reads: “Here lie the victims of the community’s priorities”.

Costco CEO Craig Jelinek supports raising the minimum wage.

Costco announced record profits today, averaging $10,000 in profit per employee compared to $7,400 at Walmart. The secret to Costco’s success is paying employees well, providing benefits, and giving them an opportunity to unionize.

So large corporations’ excuses that treating & paying workers well would damage profits are all a crock of shit.


Love Costco.
