Lee Jeffries. Homeless in Miami.

Lee Jeffries from Manchester makes a series of photographs, dedicated to the homeless. He has already visited Rome, Los Angeles, New York and Las Vegas. Having arrived in Miami, he went to one of the most inhospitable areas.

Today is the day that my grandma went home. Before she did I use to look after her. I would play my bands songs for her just like in this picture. She had so many strokes that the only way she could respond was by moving her hand. I miss the times when she could really communicate with me. When I came home from school during breaks I would have new songs made up an I would play them around the house. She would ask me about the lyrics an come up with lyrics of her own or tell me what the songs should be about. I miss that. I kinda wish I could see how she feels about all the new things happening. I guess that’s the point of this post. when you around people you love and really care about don’t pass any opportunities up. They could be family, friends, partners whatever nothing and nobody lasts forever. Through out time people, places and all things change. Enjoy everything while its in front of your face. - Yumii Thecato

Ever hear of LookHuman? You probably know them as the website that has apparel and accessories with catchy slogans and phrases that fit right in with the tumblr community’s sense of humor.

Well, that’s because a large number of those catchy slogans and phrases, along with artwork, were made by tumblr users and used without credit or permission.

That’s right: LookHuman repeatedly and routinely steals/plagiarizes and profits off the work and words of others.

Don’t believe me? Take a look:

And this is just a short list of the examples I could find easily.

They have also stolen work from other websites as well:

LookHuman is a company that preys on artists. They profit off other people’s work. None of the money from their sales go back to the original artists or originators of the artwork, slogans, and phrases they use. None of these people were credited.

Bottom line: See a cute shirt with a catchy phrase on LookHuman’s website? Chances are it’s already being sold by the original poster.

Don’t like seeing companies like this thrive? Don’t allow them to.

Tell LookHuman that you do not support art theft and plagiarism, and demand that they stop engaging in these practices. Refuse to buy from their store until they change their policies and begin crediting the artists whose work they are profiting off of.

Protect artists.

Support artists.

Boycott art thieves.

Reblogging this here because they sell some Sailor Moon themed products that I see people raving about all the time. Please don’t support LookHuman. Also if you read their FB page at any given time it looks like their customer service is awful and many customers note that their products are poorly made and arrive damaged or fall apart in a hurry, or just plain don’t arrive at all.

Norm Lewis making history when he becomes (to my knowledge) the third black Phantom worldwide to perform in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Phantom of the Opera” - and the first ever on Broadway. 

He follows in the footsteps of Robert Guillaume, who took over the role from Michael Crawford in Los Angeles, and Nicholas Nkuna, who understudied Jonathan Roxmouth in South Africa. 

I am thrilled about these casting news and I’m seriously considering a trip across the pond to see Norm Lewis in the iconic mask. 

WHAT. IS THIS REAL LIFE. IF YOU ARE LYING TO ME I WILL FIND YOU AND I WILL SKIN YOU.

I literally never pursued musical theater seriously because I was convinced a black man couldn’t play the Phantom. Representation matters, and this is amazing.

Woah

Good. Yes.
