Most people give the homeless change or leftovers, Mark Bustos is cutting their hair

For the past few months, New York City hairstylist Mark Bustos — who normally spends his days working at an upscale salon — has been volunteering on his days off to offer haircuts to homeless people he sees on the street. With a simple phrase, “I want to do something nice for you today,” he has been helping people get a fresh, uplifting makeover.

For people who have been trapped in a cycle of poverty, unemployment and homelessness, the makeover can also serve a useful function: looking presentable for a job.

The Balance

He is an activator. Find your lane of productive activism and rock out on it no matter what it is.  As long as it’s a shift for positive changes big and or small. Whether it’s assisting on teaching and spreading the good knowledge on somethings that someone may not have been hipped to.  Or just walking someone across the street helping with groceries. Or just being a considerate neighbor and making sure folks are sincerely alright in general. 

These are actions of Activators which results in action within activism of not just being a good person but doing good shit.  . 

Good things happen everyday in every way. Don’t discount anyone’s Activator Spirit. 

Just another reminder of a volunteer job that is frequently needed but hard to find people to do. I spent a year trying to find a consistent stylist to come cut hair once a month for a few hours for a small youth drop-in center and all I got was one inconsistent person for for months. So if you cut hair professionally, consider donating your time to local shelters or even just set up your own corner barbery.

Thinking about what I have to offer, what resources I have to leverage.




10 years ago today, filming began on a brand new series of Doctor Who, starring Christopher Eccleston as the Ninth Doctor and Billie Piper as Rose Tyler!

can I passively aggressively point out the way the shot is set up to make both of them equal including cancelling out the height difference and you really couldn’t tell who was meant to be the main character by looking at this photo? (Because of course they’re both the main character and of equal importance rose tyler Ninth doctor (via pygmy-of-triviality)

at no point were they both the main character … sorry.

I was eight when i watched it, so had no preconceived ideas about doctor who as a programme and was far too young to find underlying messages in the show. And even then it was clear as day to me that the Doctor was the main character and that’s fine!

He can be the main character because we have all heard stories about blonde girls from London high rise flats, there are fucking loads of them. But this, to my knowledge, is the only one about a timelord, so i’d rather he was the main character.

Because i’d rather watch her become part of his world and go and fight daleks than i would watch him become part of her world and get a job at woolworths. just how it is.
