On his day 8 years ago, hip hop lost a true original.
Peep these murals from around the globe, dedicated to the one-n-only Ol’ Dirty Bastard.

Photos of fireflies by Tsuneaki Hiramatsu
On hot, hazy summer nights, fireflies take centre stage as they fly through the night air, punctuating the darkness with flecks of yellow light.
But Japanese photographer Tsuneaki Hiramatsu captured their beauty in a whole new light, using time-lapse photography. (2012/7/12)

Description: I saw this submission online a few weeks ago and was overjoyed when one of the creators sent this in. I always thought that Baltimore needed a montage, and not just of the Orioles starting out the season hitting homers and progressing into them giving up 19 runs in a game, or white people fleeing to the suburbs as the schools integrate, but of something positive like the hilarity which happens on our city streets with surprisingly little interference from the police.
This video comes out of Alewife, on the unit block of N Eutaw which is now my favorite happy hour location because of the awesomeness of this video (and their great beer selection). I have to warn you, you will probably get this tune stuck in your head for a few days, but it’s worth it to see the woman zombie-dancing in perfect rhythm to the beat. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
Zintan, Libya | July 14, 2012 Omar, 26, sits in the car he drove to the front lines during last year’s Libyan uprising. He refuses to fix his windshield “the sniper’s round went past my head… This car took care of me, so I can’t change it.” But more than anything the windshield is a constant reminder to Omar of the life he took and the friends he lost. “The first time I killed … It was him or me. For three days after I cried and mumbled and thought I went crazy. ” #iLibya #photography #photojournalism #documentary #hipstamatic #magnumfoundation #emergencyfund #libya #Zintan (Taken with Instagram)
Location: Eastern Ave, Fells Point, Baltimore, MD
Description: This submission is perfect in so many ways. Notice the guy crumbled to the ground like a sac of bricks, in any other US city people would probably think he had a brain aneurysm and the ambulance would be on the way. In Baltimore I’m taking points off for him not being vertical and handling his blast like a man!
Then again, every other US city is full of a bunch of pussies compared to Baltimore, and they don’t understand the hilarity that this man and the thousand like him that wander our streets present on a daily basis - and for that I’m proud.
This man’s brain could have exploded and be leaking out of the side of his head and I still would have received this picture with the exact same caption:
Nappy time in Fells Point….dayum Eastern Ave is sooooo comfy!!
Stay strong Baltimore!!
