I would like to challenge you, enlightened and sagacious people of the internet, to having any clue whatsoever as to what it takes to make a floor like this.

(via caravaggista)

“I got things to do, before I meet that glory in the sky
And my baby girl b-day six months away, she gonna be five
So I pray to the lord he spare me, and I make it by and by
And I help souls stay out of Hell with what I testify
And maybe when I grab that microphone and never lie
That’ll merit that he spare me, I won’t have to feel that fire
So Killa Kill gonna spit that real on each and every song
And each and every poem, until the good lord call me home, gone!”
— Killer Mike
“No two people on earth are alike, and it’s got to be that way in music or it isn’t music.”
— Billie Holiday

Everyone loves this picture:

History forgets this one:

But we shouldn’t forget; because the latter picture gave us one of Ali’s greatest moments.

This World is Not My Home, I’m Only Passing Through

The more you say, the more mistakes you’ll make,
                                                  so keep it simple.
No one arrives without leaving soon.
This blue-eyed, green footed world— 
                                               hello, Goldie, goodbye.

We won’t meet again. So what?
The rust will remain in the trees,
                                            and pine needles stretch their necks,
Their tiny necks, and sunlight will snore in the limp grass.
