No Filter: Get In The Bathtub, We’re Reading a Book With Indya Moore

Welcome to No Filter, a journey into the deepest crevices of Instagram, a phone application that enables you to look at other people’s lives instead of your own. Sometimes, these people are famous, and I’m looking at them too, and then I am picking some of the best ones and then I’m delivering them to you here for your entertainment! This column was founded by Stef, who WE ALL MISS DEARLY.

Indya Moore reading Assata Shakur’s autobiography in a bathtub is a mood

I would have smiled but I have chicken in my teeth.

I’m not sure if I liked The Politician or not but I am completely sure that Rahne Jones is an absolute highlight and if we were friends, I would definitely be like, “THIS IS AN ATTACK” in the comments of this picture, or else just drop some fire emojis and maybe a skull. Possibly though I’d do an “Awwwww.” Or a chicken emoji. Whatever I did, she’d be glad that we were friends.

If anybody was like “did y’all remember to bring a jacket???!!!” everybody in this picture would be like “yeah, we remembered to bring jackets!”

These are the gorgeous faces that greet you at the end of the tunnel of light when you’re having a near-death experience.

Which one of you is the apples and which one of you is the honey.

Y’all remember Tori from Saved by the Bell right? The alleged heterosexual in the leather jacket? Well, she’s Rhea Butcher’s sister now.

11:11 Gmar Chatimah Tovah! May you be inscribed (in the Book of Life) for Good. And may we begin again in love. For remaining silent when a single voice would have made a difference- I forgive myself, I forgive you; We begin again in love. For each time that our fears have made us rigid and inaccessible- I forgive myself, I forgive you: We begin again in love. For each time that we have struck out in anger without just cause- I forgive myself, I forgive you; We begin again in love. For each time that our greed has blinded us to the needs of others- I forgive myself, I forgive you; We begin again in love. For the selfishness which sets us apart and alone- I forgive myself, I forgive you; We begin again in love. For falling short of the admonitions of the spirit- I forgive myself, I forgive you; We begin again in love. For losing sight of our unity- I forgive myself, I forgive you; We begin again in love. For those and so many acts both evident and subtle which have fueled the illusion of separateness- I forgive myself, I forgive you; We begin again in love.” ~ Rob Eller-Isaacs from “Litany of Atonement” May we all begin this year – and pass through this year – in love, health, and happiness. ____________________________ Thanks to @hyphennation for sharing this on Facebook this morning. Thanks to @cali_zlos for the photography skills. Endless thanks to @aliciamariesixtos for beginning again in love together every single day. ____________________________ Shana tova umetukah, my friends. #shanatova #5780 #shanatova5780
