    "Gunny?" He asks through a yawn, "Who do I need to go kill?"

    "I have a list, but that’s not the reason for the call. Can I come crash at your place? There’s someone who’s hanging around my door who is pinging my bad guy-dar."

    "Of course you can, babe.  Sure you don’t want me to come kick his ass instead?"

    She snorted into the phone, “Rather not make you do that on little sleep if possible. Nah. I’ll slip out the back and head to your place. If I’m not there in 15, then you can come looking.” She peered through the slit blind in her window. The car was still idling in the street, the oddest glint of glass - a camera maybe - twinkling occasionally.

    He chuckled, “Alright, whatever you say.” The faint sound of a gun being cocked could be heard through the phone.  “Be here in 10 or I’ll be there.”

    She heard that noise and knew that he was likely already working on getting dressed, “Yes, dear. Whatever you say, dear. You get to clean up any speeding tickets I get then.” She hung up and grabbed her wallet and keys, pocketed her phone and snuck out the back door.

so for my art project we had to fake a death/murder. for mine I did someone who had jumped off a building. when I was laying down while the picture was being taken, 7 people came running up to me asking if I was okay and if I needed an ambulance etc. I’ve been suicidal for a very long time, and the thoughts of jumping off buildings and ending my life have gone through my mind a thousand times. But the fact that people actually stopped and came running over to see if I was alright made me see that people do care, strangers care. so many people looked and walked past, but these 7 people some how took these suicidal feelings away… weird huh? But the moral of this story is that people do care about you, even people who don’t know who you are.

if you don’t reblog this, fuck you

oh my god this is amazing

MOVIE REVIEW: "Kill the Messenger" (2014)
By: Lolo & BigJ (www.lololovesfilms.blogspot.com)
Gary Webb (Jeremy Renner) is a reporter for the San Jose Mercury News. He has just finished a story on police seizures of the private property of accused drug dealers without due process. It is this story that attracts the attention of Coral Baca (Paz Vega), the girlfriend of an accused drug dealer. She gives him an accidentally leaked grand jury discovery document that shows a major drug kingpin named Danilo Blandon (Yul Vazquez) is testifying against her lower level boyfriend. Webb questions the motives of the prosecution on why they would use a whale to catch a fish. As he digs deeper, Webb finds that Blandon and his partner Meneses (Andy Garcia) have been allowed to smuggle cocaine into the United States with the complicity of the CIA; in turn, the cartels will funnel money and weapons back to the Nicaraguan rebels and the CIA will look the other way. When Gary finally publishes his story, his whole life is turned upside down.  
This movie is based on actual events in the life of Gary Webb and the persecution he faced when simply trying to tell the truth about the illegal and complicit acts purported by the United States government in the 1980’s. As a whole, this film is quite solid, though we felt like it dragged just a little bit right after Webb published his story and right when his life goes into limbo. Jeremy Renner does a spectacular job as Gary Webb, and after seeing him on various talk shows leading up to the release of this movie, it was clear that it was a passion project for him and it shows in the overall quality of the film. Webb was a journalistic crusader not without his flaws. He was a cheater, he was overly emotional and extremely fact-driven, and yet we are compelled to root for him and help him uncover the details of his story. When he got pushed down, he fought until he couldn’t fight anymore. The painful and heartbreaking end of his career would see him never make money from the profession he once loved, all because he had the audacity to dare and tell the truth. We got the sense that Renner felt like this man’s life was a story that needed to be told more than it already had been. It is one that is enthralling and yet completely sickening at the same time. Up until watching this movie, BigJ and I really had no idea who Gary Webb even was, we had little to no recollection of the goings on related to the CIA and the war on drugs, and we also hadn’t ever heard of the San Jose Mercury News. Once actually watching the film, news clips that were shown during the beginning, middle and end of the movie jogged BigJ’s memory and he remembered hearing about the government using crack cocaine to “control” the black community. These clips are another depressingly true aspect of the film and are used brilliantly to show the sensationalist nature of the media.
The biggest idea we took away from this film is that it shows why the media, a once trusted source of integrity that people could count on for actual facts, can no longer be trusted by the American public. It also shows how the media can take an article that clearly says one thing and twist it into something else that is more catchy with greater public appeal. In essence, the twisting of these articles makes them lose the entire crux and heart of what the story is, known today on the internet as “click bait” articles. And while we’re on the subject of the world wide web, unfortunately, journalism is all but dead with the expansion and prevalence of the net. Anyone Joe Schmo can publish and article online and say that it’s the truth, and many “trusted” website don’t even fact check anything anymore in an effort to be the first media outlet to report a breaking story. That, coupled with the 24-hour news cycle, make for grim reminders that Webb’s work was essentially all for not. Sorry for the slight sidebar, now back to our regularly scheduled program. “Kill the Messenger” also explores the lengths at which the US government will go to to run operations they don’t want on public record, as well as the dark dealings done in the name of national security. We’re almost positive this has gotten worst post-9/11, as the NSA and The Patriot Act have given the government license to do whatever the hell they feel like doing without so much as a warrant, all in the name of national security. 
Driven in large part by Renner’s stellar acting and the all too familiar tale of the search for veracity in the deep, dark underbelly of the annals of United States government, this is a story that deserves more respect than it received and more attention than what this film will bring it. 
My Rating: 8/10
BigJ’s Rating: 8/10
IMDB’s Rating: 7.3/10
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 74%
Do we recommend this movie: Sure, why not?
