There are two ways to listen to The Front Bottoms
- Lie on a flat surface and let Brian Sella’s voice lull you into a tranquil state
- Scream the lyrics back and dance like no one is watching
Let me tell you a fucking thing about costume design. That’s some in depth, difficult shit to learn. And the fact that this goddess can ramble this shit off the cuff means she knows her shit. ELLE WOODS IS A GODAMNED GENIUS AND IT’s NOT A STRETCH TO BELIEVE SHE GOT INTO HARVARD LAW MMMK?
FUCK YEAH ELLE WOODS OR DIE
this movie is literally about an attractive woman who loves to party having to prove over and over again that she’s also intelligent and hard-working to those who judge her based on her looks (who also empowers and fights for other women, and fosters unlikely friendships instead of engaging in girl hate) and if you don’t think that’s some great feminist shit then I don’t know what your problem is
Let’s not forget that in the end when the guy wants her again, she turns him down because she knows she deserves better.
I fuckin HAAAAAAATE the SNAP challenge.
Congress is so detached from the people they make policy about.
"omg people actually run out of eggs"
DID YOU NOT UNDERSTAND POVERTY BEFORE YOU DID THIS.
There’s something really sad about the fact that the only way democrats can fathom fighting against food stamp cuts is through the SNAP challenge. There’s an implicit messages that bother me that say
- Poor people are so invisible that they can’t even be considered to illustrate the realities of their own experience.
- We know living off SNAP is difficult but only care when “good” people live under similar conditions.
- Poor people are pathologically bad and are deserving of this harsh SNAP reality. But middle class poverty tourists live off a SNAP budget for one week and we all crowd around and revel in how commendable, humble, courageous and strong they are to slum it like those poor folks.
There are literally millions of people doing the ~SNAP challenge~ every day not by choice
How about ask them how hard it is
force them to adapt. make them do it for a year.
MAKE THEM DO IT FOR A YEAR.
In month five, take away their cable.
For two weeks in winter (but liveable conditions by poverty standards) take away their heat.
In month eight, take away their vehicle.
In month ten, take away their oven.
In month eleven, take away their stove.
For the last month, take away hot water.
They have to hold their sick and feverish kid all night long, worrying about the fever spiking too high, because it will literally destroy the tiny fragile equilibrium they have to get the bill for the co-pay.
They crack a tooth and can’t afford to fix it until finally they have to have it yanked by one of the few dentists that accept state insurance, after months of pain and fever and inability to eat what food they can afford.
They miss an appointment because they couldn’t get to the office on time (since the car is dead and they’re bussing if they’re lucky enough to live in a place with buses). Their assistance is cut, and they’re lucky if they keep it at all.
The SNAP challenge is weaksauce and it frustrates me to see people doing it lauded when they keep every other piece of comfort and security.
IF YOU’RE ON SNAP/FOODSTAMPS MOST LIKELY YOUR FINANCES ARE GOING TO BE GREATLY HINDERED IN OTHER WAYS.
SO TRYING TO TAKE ON POVERTY AS A CHALLENGE THROUGH THIS ALONE IS USELESS.
FUCKING HATE THESE PEOPLE. IT’S LIKE WOW THANK YOU, I DIDN’T KNOW POVERTY WAS A COOL CHALLENGE WHERE YOU CAN WIN MERIT POINTS AT THE END. WHERE’S MY FUCKING BADGE, SHITBAGS?
Andy’s toys couldn’t have gone to a more deserving child.
Pain is not exclusive to humans.
this genuinely makes my heart hurt
I really dislike when people say animals aren’t smart, or that they can’t feel emotions.
Sorry to rain on your parade but… While true, these are not emotions of sadness. These are emotions of dominance.
This isn’t a bird mourning over a dead bird.
This is a male bird raping the corpse of its rival to show dominance so that the chick birds will come mate with him and other males don’t step in his territory looking for mates.
Birds are fucking brutal man.
At first I thought this was a joke, but now that I see you’re serious I’m actually embarrassed for you. And disappointed, but let’s get to that later.
The pictures here belong to photographer Wilson Hsu, and if you knew the first thing about birds (which you obviously don’t), you’d be able to tell that the deceased bird is a female due to its more desaturated plumage and shorter tail feathers. Here, let’s post the coloured version to confirm, because tumblr has some sort of bizarre fetish for making everything black and white.
There goes your first point.
If you knew the second thing about birds, you’d be able to identify this species as a Barn swallow. And while you are correct in your assumption that the males are fairly territorial, they also mate for life and are fiercely dedicated to their female counterpart. Barn swallows, along with most small birds, are actually physically incapable of any sort of penetrative sex, because they have a cloaca instead of a penis. Mating is done by passing a packet of sperm from the male’s cloaca into the female’s, not by inserting a penis into a vagina. Necrophilia in this species is completely unheard of, and would be a complete waste.
So if we take all this information I’ve just told you, and couple it up with the fact that Wilson Hsu’s entire collection of these photos is uploaded online, which vividly depicts a male Barn Swallow trying to rouse his mate which has just died, we can infer you know literally nothing about the species as a whole, didn’t even bother to look up where the pictures were from, and are deliberately spreading misinformation for the sake of looking COOL N’ EDGY on tumblr dot com.
Normally I wouldn’t get so heated about this sort of thing, but that’s just stupid as hell.
Reblogging because facts
When I grow up I want to be Ming-Na Wen.
She’s the voice of Mulan, as if she wasn’t amazing enough.
This is a rare meteorological phenomenon called a skypunch. When people see these, they think it’s the end of the world. Ice crystals form above the high-altitude cirro-cumulo-stratus clouds, then fall downward, punching a hole in the cloud cover.
the earth is so fucking metal i swear
