Flower Power by Sophie Garmand

Queue Teas!

They’re so silly and adorable.

This reminds me of the Converge “Live At BBC” 7” artwork. So awesome.

Why would anyone want to imitate The Purge in real life? Why not choose a better movie, like Space Jam?

I’ll never punish my daughter for saying no.

The first time it comes out of her mouth, I’ll smile gleefully. As she repeats “No! No! No!” I’ll laugh, overjoyed. At a young age, she’ll have mastered a wonderful skill. A skill I’m still trying to learn. I know I’ll have to teach her that she has to eat her vegetables, and she has to take a nap. But “No” is not wrong. It is not disobedience.

1. She will know her feelings are valid.
2. She will know that when I no longer guide her, she still has a right to refuse.

The first time a boy pulls her hair after she says no, and the teacher tells her “boys will be boys,” we will go to her together, and explain that my daughter’s body is not a public amenity. That boy isn’t teasing her because he likes her, he is harassing her because it is allowed. I will not reinforce that opinion. If my son can understand that “no means no” so can everyone else’s.

3. She owes no one her silence, her time, or her cooperation.

The first time she tells a teacher, “No, that is wrong,” and proceeds to correct his public school, biased rhetoric, I’ll revel in the fact that she knows her history; that she knows our history. The first time she tells me “No” with the purpose and authority that each adult is entitled, I will stop. I will apologize. I will listen.

4. She is entitled to her feelings and her space. I, even a a parent, have no right to violate them.
5. No one has a right to violate them.

The first time my mother questions why I won’t make her kiss my great aunt at Christmas, I’ll explain that her space isn’t mine to control. That she gains nothing but self doubt when she is forced into unwanted affection. I’ll explain that “no” is a complete sentence. When the rest of my family questions why she is not made to wear a dress to our reunion dinner. I will explain that her expression is her own. It provides no growth to force her into unnecessary and unwanted situation.

6. She is entitled to her expression.

When my daughter leaves my home, and learns that the world is not as open, caring, and supportive as her mother, she will be prepared. She will know that she can return if she wishes, that the real world can wait. She will not want to. She will not need to. I will have prepared her, as much as I can, for a world that will try to push her down at every turn.

7. She is her own person. She is complete as she is.

I will never punish my daughter for saying no. I want “No” to be a familiar friend. I never want her to feel that she cannot say it. She will know how to call on “No” whenever it is needed, or wanted.

My mouth is numb, and I cant make the words I need to say.  She had a weakness for writers, and I.. I was never that good at words anyway.  I’ve only got this one wish.. I wish I was good enough to make you forget the only boy who ever broke your heart, ‘cause nights like these tear me apart.

So perfect.

dailyherrasment:

I really enjoy DOC and when it’s one of your favorite vocalist it doesn’t hard either.  The only other vocalist I could think about really wanting to see something like this is Chino from Deftones. “Rung In A Ladder” is an amazing put together piece by Ian MacFarland, I can’t say that I’ve seen any of his other works, but probably should after watching this. Alot of artist have this kinda of wall that is created around them, either by media or the fans themselves. Having met Jacob Bannon in person, talking with him like I would one of my friends for years it was clear that he’s just a guy enjoying life. I think this film opens up a door that I don’t believe we’d here outside of possible making it up from lyrics in Converge songs. There are alot of things said through out this that I would have never thought about Jacob from seeing him on stage or just listening to the music that he makes. I believe we find a very genuine human in this film, someone trying to do his best…in this day and age it seem far and few between that you find such people.  Jacob and his band continue to amaze me with not only what they do with their music, but more so they do with the reputation that they’ve gained through the years.  I hope you enjoi and our inspired by this film.
