I don’t think that people generally realise what motion picture industry has done to the American Indian, as a matter of fact, all ethnic groups, all minorities, all non-whites. And people just simply don’t realise, just take it for granted that that’s the way people are going to be presented and these clichés are just, I mean on this network every night, well perhaps not every night, but you can see silly renditions of human behaviour, the leering Filipino houseboy, the wily Japanese, the kook or the gook, black man, stupid Indian. It just goes on and on and on. And people actually don’t realise how deeply people are injured by seeing themselves represented, not so much the adults, who are already inured to that kind of pain and pressure, but children. Indian children seeing Indians represented as savage, as ugly, as nasty, vicious, treacherous, drunken. They grow up only with a negative image of themselves and it lasts a lifetime.

John Oliver from The Daily Show Presents Gun Control to America - Imgur

Whoop dee fucking doo indeed.

Ever feel like the Daily Show does better reporting and REAL questioning than most news shows?

It’s satire only reveals more truth than not.

Yep.

Fuck the NRA.

I’m Australian and my class happened to watch this last week.  We couldn’t breathe from laughing so incredulously at how illogical this man was being and how he considered Australia some alternate universe that didn’t matter.  It’s amazing how we found the answer to gun violence, we took action and got rid of gun culture all together - and this is seen as some drastic, totally unrealistic movement by Americans.  My generation, 90s kids, we grew up unable to imagine what a gun culture is even like.  I couldn’t believe when I found out the US sells bullets in convenience stores!  It’s a case of “You won’t know until you try it”.  Obviously America is much bigger than Australia so the potential backlash is daunting.  But our Prime Minister had to wear a bulletproof vest as he made his announcement to ban guns, yet he still did it and it still worked

remember this!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!

Pierre Bonnard in his studio. Le Cannet, France 1945.
"I’ve gone to school. I’ve sought to forget everything I knew, I want to learn what I do not know. I’m retaking my studies from the start, from the ABCs, and I defy myself, of everything that had previously made me so passionate, of that terrifying colour…"

SAID NO PAINTING TEACHER AT MY ART SCHOOL EVER 

(cries) 

"Talent is a pursued interest. In other words, anything that you’re willing to practice, you can do."

I love this

I love this man like no other, and I don’t even paint.
