Harlem Shade

anyway I came here to say, i need to get out of philly. i want to move to new york. does everyone experience this urge or is it just me? maybe if u aspire to be a dentist you wanna move to arkansas, a lot of models are flocking to miami, im gonna take myself to the closest version of silicon valley and settle in flatiron. settle at a job not an apartment i couldnt afford to live in flatiron unless i had a sugar daddy and im just not that type of girl. but anyways yes. i want to move. i currently live between two cities. well. no. if my 'roommate' saw that he'd be outraged. i LIVE in philadelphia. i have an entire vacant apartment in philadelphia. why? because im in new york two to three days out of my week. so many job opportunities, s…

REVIEW: The Academy of Music Presents 'Beauty and the Beast'

This question has been answered by recent protests of the murder of Trayvon Martin. "What do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now!"

Martin was shot and killed February 26th in Sanford, Florida by Mark Zimmerman, a vigilante whom, claiming self defense, was never arrested. The seventeen year old was wearing a hoodie and armed with a bag of skittles and an iced tea,  however Sanford police claim that with little facts about the incident there is not enough evidence to arrest Zimmerman. Police arrived on the scene of the crime at 7:17pm, which also marked the start time…
