3. (Besides Josh Groban. Or Josh Groban if you can't think of anyone else XD)
THREE: Celebrity Crush
Bahaha, you know me well. Josh Groban is there, of course, but I’d also say Nathan Fillion, Turbo Lover (from Protomen, possibly in part because he looks like Evil Josh Groban), and honestly? Anne Hathaway. XD
When I was in 6th grade I had a Halloween party, and at it one guy that I was forced to invite out of politeness drove me batshit. I stopped hanging out with two of my best guy friends because of it (I couldn’t stand to be around the guy I had to invite, and he was always hanging around with the two of them). I destroyed a really good friendship for about four years because of that stupidity, but at least now that friendship is starting to heal. (They did just leave me a drunk phone message, after all. XD)
THIRTEEN: My favorite book
… that’s like asking me to pick a favorite child. Uh. The Giver and Martin the Warrior have very special places in my heart, The Thief is one of my favorite books of all time, and Good Omens is a book that I believe every person should read.
TWENTY-TWO: Why I started tumblr
NINE: Something I really wanna have
A message from Zach. >.> Apart from that, a stable, well-paying job, so I can support myself and (ideally) be able to provide for my parents as well in the event that they need me to. I’d really like to buy my mom a house someday.
Oh god I’m really boring and I have no idea what my answer for this would be. Most of my happiest moments end up being because something I’ve worked really hard at ended up being justified (top three being getting into W&M, getting a 7 on the IB HL English exam, and being one of three freshman at my high school back in Texas to get a solo act in the spring Cabaret show), or because I’m hanging out with people I love (Zach comes to mind, but stupid adventures at IHOP with Rachel, Gracie, Jenny and Shannon are also included here.)
I guess the moral of the story is it really doesn’t take much to make me happy, which is a blessing in and of itself. c:
TWENTY-TWO: The reason why I started tumblr
Peer pressure. XD In freshman year of college, Gracie introduced us to it, and I naively went, ‘Huh, I guess I can poke around this, but I’ll probably get bored.’
TWENTY-THREE: Something I hate most about people
A lot of things. I… actually don’t like people in general all that much. That being said, when I find people I actually like, I like them fiercely. I think close-mindedness and pretentiousness are at the top of my list, however.
Oh. And when people don’t recognize that I know my shit regarding certain topics. There was a girl in my history class that tried to act as if she knew more about nuclear history and politics than I did. I’ve been studying that for two years now; she has never studied it and focuses on the history of German culture. She irked me a lot.
The Boiling Rock made me really like the Fire Nation guards, as did the episode before the siege that had that really nice female guard that brought Iroh nice food and tea.
That’s something I always liked about Avatar, honestly. The Fire Nation was the evil party, yeah, but it wasn’t so simple; not every Fire Nation person was evil, and even those who supported their ambition were just depicted as people with depth outside of ‘ALL HAIL FIRE NATION YOU’D BEST BOW DOWN’. There were also ‘evil’ people of other nations, like that one Earth Nation guy that tried to force Aang into the Avatar State against his will. I just really appreciate when a kid’s show recognizes that things are never black and white, us versus them.
YOU KNOW THAT EPISODE OF BUFFY WHERE AT THE END SHE’S LIKE “All I can handle is apple red, tree pretty?”
THAT IS ME RIGHT NOW
Except for EVERYONE’S IDENTITY IS VALID AND I’M NOT SURE IF I AGREE WITH YODA’S “DO OR DO NOT, THERE IS NO TRY” ADDAGE.
I AM NOT A COHERENT HUMAN.
I CANNOT RECOVER MY BEAUTIFUL COHERENT POST.
THERE IS LEFTOVER ICE CREAM IN THE FRIDGE AND I AM EATING IT.
I LOVE EVERYONE.
YES, EVEN YOU, PERSON WHO THINKS THEIR TEXT POSTS ARE ANNOYING AND THEIR BLOG IS SHIT AND THAT ALL THEIR FRIENDS SECRETLY HATE THEM
V, I love you.
And the ice cream worked for me. Or maybe it was the walk outside because it actually cooled down to a pleasant temperature. But I’m gonna put my money on the ice cream because it was chocolate with strawberries.
Eastern Shoshone (Wyoming), Girl’s Dress, beads/leather, c. 1900.
Or even this:
Wanna know why that second one still doesn’t count? Because ladies and gents that is Iron Eyes Cody. He was a famous actor who did western movies. He was an Italian that liked to play Native American, not just in his movies, but in real life.
This is what we dance in:
This is the proper way to wear a warbonnet:
This is Phil Fontaine. He is the former National Chief. He can wear a war bonnet.
I’ll be honest, tumblr, I don’t really use you a whole lot. I definitely don’t follow many people on you. And of the few people that I actually do follow, at least half of them are for no other reason than that the shit they post is so miraculously and unequivocally retarded that the rage induced almost-aneurism that creeps into my skull every time I glimpse one of these posts is so prevalent - and so…pulsating - that it’s euphoric. It’s like heroin for me. It’s hate porn. Just acknowledging in my head that there are people in the world, particularly the internet, that are just so fucking stupid that they not only create this shit, but see it somewhere else andthen feel the need to share it with more peopleunironically.
The other day, this popped up in my feed.
The first thought that came to my mind after reading this (aside from “Ow, fuck, fucking shit that hurt“after I’d shoved chopsticks into my pupils to make the pain go away) was “there are only 4 ways on this list that even the most brain dead drugged out hippie could conceive of measuring a year, and they’re all the fucking same.”
Days. Can we just say days? You have all the components of a day. These are the things that days are comprised of. But why did you leave out afternoons? I mean, you’ve got sunsets and “daylights”, then midnight all by itself. Afternoon seems like a likely companion. This is just poor presentation. If you’re in the business of making failed inspirational (or something) graphics, at least attempt to look like you had some sort of material to begin with.
Also, fucking “daylights”? Seems like you’re trying to make it the opposite of sunset because that would make, ya know, a little sense. But “daylights”? It’s a fucking sunrise. The sun rises in the morning, the day doesn’t light. People don’t say that, no more than they say the sun darks or some shit at night. Fuck.
Note that I haven’t checked if this actually how many minutes are in a year, but if it is, sure, this makes sense. But again, time, yeah, we got that. You can measure a year in time. In fact, that’s the only fucking way you can do it because a year is a motherfucking increment of time you son of a bitch.
You can measure a year in minutes or hours or days or weeks or months or fortnights or, if you’re one of them types that likes to make shit easy, fucking years. But it’s all the same. Making 4 entries on it is just lazy creating.
This is my favorite part of the whole thing. First of all, no, you can’t measure a year in inches. Like…no matter how you look at it. Why does this make sense to people!?
But you get that point by now. The reason this one is my favorite is because of the parentheses (not to scale).
Thank god for that warning or I might have went and measured some shit wrong. But the fact that this is written there indicates that whoever made this was at least a little concerned about their credibility. But what’s even more astounding is that they didn’t think that that credibility had already been compromised when they said that a year could be measured in cups of coffee.
I think I’ll take next year with some creamer
But a question does come to mind with this entry when you look at the one below it: why no “not drawn to scale” disclaimer?
Is this how big you think a mile is?
Laughter and strife are not opposites. I don’t know if they were intended to be, but the pictures accompanying them definitely were.
Furthermore, neither of these are pictures of laughter or strife. They’re pictures of a smile and a frown. I mean I guess that’s up for interpretation. It could just be an upside down rainbow and a regular rainbow. It would still make about as much sense because you can’t fucking measure a year in either goddammit.
But why didn’t you just use smiles and frowns? How did you fuck this up this bad? You were halfway there, you had the pictures (probably). AND WHY DO NONE OF THESE PEOPLE WHO REBLOG THIS HORSESHIT SEE THIS AS MAKING NO FUCKING SENSE?!!?
The last one of the list is love, and, obviously, love is not a standard of measurement, but it somehow is one of the least dumb things listed here. So that’s an accomplishment.
I get why people like things like this, but this one, holy shit. You could have literally put anything there and it would have the same meaning. “Hiccups” “desks” “rain” “brain hemorrhages”, they all make the same amount of sense as the bullshit that was actually used.
If you know a teenage girl between the ages of 12 and 18, send this post to her, and tell her that an unemployed kid in his 20s thinks she’s a fucking moron.
It’s called theatre, dear. Learn yourself some. Actually, don’t. You’ll probably hate it anyway.
Ugh dude seriously
I mean Rent isn’t my favorite show but I will defend this song because you know it is really sweet. It’s not about actually measuring a year, it’s about what goes into a year. Have you ever watched the sunset? Stayed up till midnight with someone you loved? Spent the day with your family?
How far have you traveled in a year?
Has it been a good, happy year? Full of laughter? Or maybe a sucky one with tons of strife? You can ‘measure’ or ‘remember’ a year in so many different ways, so many things can happen in a year—
It’s POETRY goshdarnit. Not the best, but it’s obviously not meant to be taken LITERALLY. It’s called metaphor and imagery!
When Robert Goshdarn Frost was talking about roads diverging in a wood, he was talking about life! Life isn’t a forest, nor is it a road! But it’s all about the imagery!
I’m just enjoying the fact that the OP spent so much time and hate hating on a really sweet song because the OP had no idea what it was. There’s something hilarious and sad in that.
“You could have literally put anything there and it would have the same meaning.”
This is honestly my favorite part because, oh wow, OP, you stumbled upon the point. A year is what you make it and how you choose to remember it.
Although it would be a really awkward year if you measured it in hiccups. Whatever floats your boat, though.
(Also that is the correct number of minutes in a year.)
Yes, do brag to the history major who works part-time in a library helping people on research papers about your ‘totally legit citation and archival digging skills.’ I am so totally impressed. My word.
He also said ‘Oh, you won’t mind if I bring my girlfriend to lunch? It’d be rude to hang out with just a female friend without inviting her.’
I bu WHA.
So if I were a dude, or if, say, Spencer were there as well, it wouldn’t be a problem, huh?
I’m finding a reason why I can’t make it whenever he decides to meet up. Not worth this bullshit. I could only ever tolerate him with Spencer, anyway.
What a lovely response to a good friend fulfilling one of their life’s dreams.
I know, he really understood my exitement and made me feel even better about it, can’t you tell? He followed this up with, ‘Relax, I was just joking. You know I like NASA.’ (To which I replied, ‘Well, you might be misinformed, because NASA kind of just hired 100-odd astronauts. Good try, though!’)
I really don’t know why I’m still friends with him. His list of offenses includes telling our mutual extremely close friend Spencer that his mother killed his brother because she got an abortion ten years before Spencer was born (we looked at each other silently, stood up from the tennis court we had been playing on, and walked away to the Starbucks nearby without saying a word to him), for starters. Plus general (blind) conservative republican bullshit. He also really, really loves Regan, and belittled my mother’s job as a social worker at one point because he claimed her job was just ‘wasting the government’s money on illegal immigrants and freeriders’. Bonus points: he’s the rare breed of SUPER Jewish conservative republicans, which always confused, well, everyone at the synagogue when we were kids.
Haters to the left, I love Anne Hathaway and am seriously excited for her as Fantine, and I loved how she sounded in the trailer.
EDIT: THIS IS NOT DIRECTED AT ANY ONE PERSON. It’s directed at people on news articles and youtube.
Also: awww, everyone from the high school production of Les Mis is freaking out over this now. <3 My friend who played Young Cosette just posted going ‘I was prepared to hate this BUT OH MY GOD I’LL BE THERE OPENING DAY NOW.’
I don’t post facebook fuckery on my tumblr because, well, I wouldn’t want someone else doing that to me, especially if they didn’t know the whole story (like I don’t about this conversation), but man. I just read the most facepalm-inducing conversation if it was done in earnest and not out of trolling.
Stalkerbook, this is why I don’t like you: I should not have seen that exchange, I’m only friends with one person on it (and I think I hid them anyway).
Reblogging from my main to get the word out! (I know, I’m just full of sales today, I’m very sorry! In the week before I go back to college, trying to get all my affairs in order and clear out some clutter. XD)
I need to clean out my room a bit, and the best way to do that is, well, get rid of things! If I can get rid of things at a profit that benefits others, so much the better! SO! Click the read more to see a parade of manga, anime, plushies, figures, and more!
Things represented include: Fruits Basket, Sailor Moon, Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicles, DNAngel, Marmalade Boy, Shaman King and Full Moon w Sagashite, Neon Genesis Evangeleon, and more! (I think! There’s some stuff in here that I don’t even know why I have them or where they came from! XD)
… I also should have some One Piece, Naruto, and Neon Gensis Evangeleon manga around here somewhere, but as I can’t find those at the mo’, they, well, aren’t for sale yet. XD
So 1.5 Avengers (Spidey counts SOMETIMES), 1/2 of The Fantastic Four + … I don’t want to call the Silver Surfer a Fantastic Four side character, but what else do I call him?, and 2/-insert infinity symbol here- X-Men. XD
I JUST REALLY WANT WOLVERINE AND CAPTAIN AMERICA THOUGH. I’m quite pleased I’ve only gotten one repeat thus far, though. c:
