My name's Trip.
Not originally, obviously, but life is too damn short to have a boring name.

I'm a student at a college
Those places sellin' knowledge
For fifty grand
Because learning
is a designer brand

imagine Tangelas back in the 1600s

the world isn’t quite there yet, there’s settlers and natives wandering with inadequate footwear

and there they are, in their converse sneakers taunting everyone else

We don’t need European fairy tales retold with dark-skinned characters

We need non-European fairy tales being told

Race-bending isn’t the answer here

Realizing that there are children who have non-European heritages and cultures who need their own stories being given representation is the answer

now he’s talking to me about how important exercise is

who is this guy

he’s a japanese man named tanaka who added me completely out of the blue one day and sometimes we talk together and it’s magical
he plays the guitar but only does “stand by me” by phil collins and he will do it for you over and over

     “They can’t see me, sir. They can’t see me because they have a preconceived impression. They look at this and think: ‘Oh, you poor bastard, you’re homeless. Here’s a cup of coffee. See you later.’ This carriage is a rolling library. I’ve got calculus, psychology, sociology, and the ancient histories of the Babylonians, the Egyptians, and the Phoenicians and a bunch of stuff they don’t teach at Harvard and MIT. But they can’t see me, sir. They live in a dream world and walk around with their chests all pumped up: ‘Oh, Harvard alumni. Harvard endowment. Money, money, money, money.’  Who is on their money, sir? Who were the presidents who are on their money? Who were they when they were alive? That’s right! Slave owners. Today, it’s no longer a Black and White thing—it’s a class thing. Everybody is in slavery, even those who think they are free. They took the chains off your hands and put them on your mind.”
