The bees in Candyman were bred specifically for the movie. They needed to make sure that the bees were only 12 hours old so that they looked like mature bees, but their stinger wouldn’t be powerful enough to do any real damage. Real bees were actually put into Tony Todd’s mouth while they where shooting the climax. His only protection was a mouth guard that kept him from having the bees go down his throat. Virginia Madsen is allergic to bees, so an ambulance was always on set while filming the bee sequence.

the only domestic instinct my parents have managed to pass on to me is the tendency to hoard multiple plastic bags in another plastic bags despite the fact that I will probably never need this many plastic bags in my adult life

screw stardust; be iron instead.
be the element that creates stardust.
be the element that causes the largest stars to explode.
be the element that is strong enough to collapse an entire universe.

Durham, NC: On December 9, ALIANZA, Student Action With Farmworkers (SAF) and the Farm Labor Organizing Committee (FLOC) organized a protest at the Kangaroo Store on the corner of Estes Drive and E. Franklin Street as part of a series of state-wide actions that weekend, including events in Greensboro and Raleigh.

"We will be raising our voices to Kangaroo to let them know that they MUST tell Reynolds Tobacco - based in Winston Salem- to either end the abuses of human rights in their tobacco fields and work camps or they will cut their ties with the corporation. 

"The issues of migrant- and farm-workers rights are pertinent to every person in the state of North Carolina. HELP BRING THIS ISSUE TO THE FOREFRONT!"

North Carolina Growers Association Rep Slugs Farmworker Union Organizer

On July 9, 2014, FLOC representative and “Respect, Recognition, Raise!” campaign leader Oscar Sanchez arrived to a farm, having taken FLOC members to a local food bank. Previously, Sanchez had met with the farmworkers who were exploring their options after a slow start to the season. Following this meeting, FLOC filed a request for a fund managed by FLOC and the North Carolina Growers Association to help workers survive when, due to weather, work is continually scarce. While the business of fund administration is one generally conducted by email, Sanchez arrived to the farm to find the Growers Association representative discussing the fund with workers. During this meeting, and in front of the farmworkers’ employer, the growers’ rep singled out farmworkers who had signed on to the request, seemingly to intimidate them. When Sanchez corrected a name mispronounced by the growers’ rep, he was told not to interrupt and keep quiet, even though Sanchez had every right to participate.

Without warning or instigation, and in front of farmworkers and their employer, the Growers’ rep crossed the 20 feet separating him from Sanchez and punched him in the face

Since the June launch of the “Respect, Recognition, Raise!” campaign, hundreds of farmworkers have joined the fight for a pathway to union recognition and the right to collectively bargain for better living and work conditions. Many more, faced with intimidation (all too clearly shown in this video), are afraid to speak up where threats, and now violence, go unpunished.
