I draw things, post interesting stuff, and own a David Bowie mug. I'm terrible at tagging and I really like Horror. Tread wisely, traveller~
is this beautiful solidarity too much for you, anon?
(also, i feel bad for you.)
A snippet from an article on Huffington Post about what it means to be working poor.
Pretty spot on…
I got into an argument today with someone who is a landlord, and they were outraged, outraged, to find that their evicted tenants owned an Xbox 360. Never mind that the console was ten years old and worth perhaps $50 on Craigslist, they were outraged that their evicted tenants did not sell it, along with the very clothes on their back, to pay their back rent. I tried to explain to him that when you are $1800 in back rent, $50 isn’t even a dent in that debt. Why bother? Why bother selling that $50 item if it isn’t going to get you any less evicted? If it’s not going to save you, you’ll hold on to it. Money becomes meaningless when you’ll never have enough to hold onto. You just let it flow like water through your hands. It’s all gone anyways, no matter what you do. It was gone before it ever touched you.
This is what middle-class people and above never understand.
"We need to recognize that for some people sex is great and for some sex is horrific and for some it’s on par with folding laundry."
This is a critical part of sex positivity that tends to be overlooked. Let’s celebrate empowering amazing sex and the choice to not have sex, or only have certain kinds of sex.
Distressing Video Captures EXACTLY How Cops Treat Black People
I was extremely uncomfortable watching this. What the fuck, this is getting fucking ridiculous.. Why was no one helping him?!
swear to god serial killers need to stop killing innocent civilians and target these racists cops
btw, didnt realize this but around 2:44 you can hear the taser being turned on and the screaming immediately after is the innocent man being tased.
I’m watching “The Woman in Black,” and thoroughly enjoying Daniel Radcliffe’s eyebrows here.
UGHHHHHHHH I was so excited for that movie.
If you want to watch a version of that movie that’s ACTUALLY GOOD instead of a generic slap-dash edition that directly rips off the ending of The Deathly Hallows, watch the original BBC version of the movie. It’s much less a flagarant horror movie w/CGI assisted effects and much more a very spooky suspense thriller.
I found it much more subtle and eerie and it scared me a lot more than all the over-the-top jump scares the Radcliffe version flung my way. And I really, really wanted to give that version a chance :C The ending’s abrupt, but good in a way that it kind of makes the overall concept of the Woman in Black’s haunting that much scarier.
But damn yeah Daniel’s a babe.
What did Jontron do this time? =/
tim schafer, founder of double fine studios, which made gems like psychonauts, grim fandango, brutal legend, the secret of monkey island and other great games posted a tweet with a link to a video talking about violence against women in video games.
jon jafari, who is following tim on twitter, decided he wasn’t happy watching a video that had comments disabled that talked about such a sensitive topic, and decided to make his opinion very well known.
and then as jon’s voracious fanboys were attacking mr. tim schafer on twitter, telling him to kill himself since he’s “outlived his welcome”, jon decides to send this tweet in:
which not only spurned his fanbase on to send hatemail towards tim, but also made tim out to be the bad guy in this conversation.
which he absolutely wasn’t.
Ugh Jontron’s videos are funny I’m so disappointed that he turned out to be a jerk
man Jon is just one “Not All Men Are like That” shy of becoming an MRA
meanwhile Egoraptor is scratching his head on twitter becauase he made one feminist-positive tweet and a whole bunch of people got furious with him.
I’m so sick of the bro crowd Jon gathers. I really, really lke his comedy when it isn’t being extremely ableist. He can actually be pretty sincerely funny but he’s gotta get spanked.
