Canadian music festival takes huge step against Native appropriation

Follow micdotcom 

From their announcement:

For various reasons, Bass Coast Festival is banning feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite. Our security team will be enforcing this policy.

We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets. They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated.

Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people. We have consulted with aboriginal people in British Columbia on this issue and we feel our policy aligns with their views and wishes regarding the subject. Their opinion is what matters to us.

i think it’d be really useful to go to the oxford uni open day in september but a return ticket from edinburgh is £140 and it’s likely my parents and sister would want to come to so that’s like £560…..oxford are super rich, they should just pay for people to visit

i keep meeting people who are like “oh i’m so disorganised, i’ve only written one draft of my personal statement!!” and like….i’ve not even started mine……..


I want a relationship that’s just like super cool friendship with like kissing



for chinese new year they get all these famous actors and comedians together and they do a lil show and one of the comedians was like “i was in a hotel in america once and there was a mouse in my room so i called reception except i forgot the english word for mouse so instead i said ‘you know tom and jerry? jerry is here’

jerry is here

i really really want to see the black keys next march but
a) am i willing to spend £40 on a ticket
b) can i find anyone to go with me who is also willing to spend £40 on a ticket

they are mini daim bars, basically crispy caramel stuff covered in chocolate, i would recommend trying them! i didn’t realise quite how many there were in the bag i bought though - i now have literally hundreds of daim bars and no one else in my family likes them (i’ve phrased this like it’s a problem but it’s totally not)


"text me when you get home so i know you’re safe" kinda people are the people i wanna be around


i grab my friend and yell OH MY GOD HAVE YOU SEEN THIS VINE, my friend turns around; i am holding an excellent specimen of vitis coignetiae, we are botanists


the notebook problem: you see a notebook. you want to buy the notebook. but you know you have like TEN OTHER NOTEBOOKS. most which are STILL EMPTY. you don’t need to notebook. you’re probably not gonna use the notebook anyway. what’s the point? DONT BUY THE NOTEBOOK. you buy the notebook.

is anyone else watching the commonwealth games opening ceremony? how does it seem from a non-scottish perspective?
