I’ve Started Locs! (by AveLooks)

A short video from November about the beginning of my loc journey.

So this gentleman, Rene Lima-Marin, went to jail when he was 19 for armed robbery (with an unloaded gun so technically not armed?). Did not kill or harm anyone. He served 10 years, was released in 2008. He has since turned his life around proving the purpose of jails to be rehabilitation; he has a wife and kids, works, and even bought a house. 5 years later the courts say that he was released in error and needs to finish out the rest of his 98 year sentence.
What the actual fuck.
Here’s the petition his wife started
Here’s one of the news story with more details
Some people are writing letters and calling the governor of Colorado, so here’s that too:

This story just struck me the wrong way. I can’t believe this is actually real.

I’m not okay with the fact I was 17 when I joined Tumblr and I am almost 22.

….I’m not okay with the fact that I was 14 when I joined tumblr and I’m about to be 23…

You joined in 2009 too tho and that makes you 18 when you joined…

And tumblr was founded in 2007 so even still that’d make you 20….

 Locs get the short end of the stick in this natural hair blogosphere. Because (in some universe I don’t have access too) they’re considered “easier” to manage so they “they don’t count.” I’m not touching this idea with a 10 foot pole because it’s…Well, it’s 12 kinds of ridiculous. So today were going to ignore alla than and focus on locs. Long, short, dyed, thick, and thin in all their glory.

More pretty pictures!

omg who ever thinks locs are easier to manage……. >_> I’m still considering them but after my research on loc care….my fro is definitely easier for me right now lol.

This Looks Shopped of the Day: Classic Statues Dressed in Modern Fashion

French photographer Léo Caillard teamed up with digital imaging retoucher Alexis Persani for a pretty cool project titled /// Street Stone ///, which re-imagines classical statues in the streets of Paris as if they just walked out of a GAP commercial.
