“there are two types of women in this world: those who idolize Audrey Hepburn, and those who idolize Marilyn Monroe. girls who idolize Audrey Hepburn make rad girlfriend material and you can talk about politics with them and still totally do it on the sly on top of the washing machine. girls that idolize Marilyn Monroe are fucking insane, eat babies, and hate black people.”—(via cassiecoutard)
Unit 3000-21 sighed—or his grid of hydraulic valves fluttered and made it sound so. The black-eyed girl in the gold dress was a lovely looking-up speck in his readout. His systems processed her tiny clenched fists—and in that moment an unforeseen mechanical anomaly decided to let her win.
SCUL is organized in a paramilitary fashion with a hierarchical ranking structure, distinct naval/space terminology and a sci-fi atmosphere.
SCUL conducts “missions” every Saturday night from April Fool’s until Halloween. A typical mission involves routine patrolling of the local “star-systems” (cities), getting high-fives from civilians they pass and crushing discarded soda cups on the street. Occasionally, they will stop to hone their flight skills with some friendly bicycle derby. Centuries (100-mile rides), Intergalactic and Interuniversal Missions (across state or country borders) have also been completed.
by someone you admire is the most demoralizing feeling in the world.
Dear Whoever Caused This Post,
How can you crush a statue? How can you crush a robot? I don’t know, but somehow you did. You jerk.
This Caroline person makes cool art. ALL. THE. TIME. And she gives it away. FOR FREE. And whatever you make, I bet it isn’t as cool. And I bet you don’t give it away for free. Well, I dunno, maybe you do, there weren’t a lot of details in Caroline’s post, but the point is Caroline is totes cool and it’s just uncool to make her post something like this to Tumblr.
Being connected…with a new person is the most uplifting* feeling in the world.
Anyway, Mystery-Demoralizer, I hope get a splinter and everyone unfollows you.
Hugs and kisses,
* - so I wanted to use moralizing instead of demoralizing, but while it is a word, it’s not what I wanted it to mean. Oh well. Learned a new word.
Thanks so much for cheering me up, Kurt, but I must correct you. Ironically, the demoralizer was actually Ali Spagnola who does give away free art, and it is cooler than mine. Without getting into much detail, there was a big lack of communication and clarity on my part about the free art project I’m doing and Ali was upset about me not giving her credit where credit was due.
Everything’s been sorted out now, but I just wanted to let everyone know who wasn’t sure that I really, honestly, truly did not come up with the idea to give away free art. Ali started this years ago and I found out about it when Josh requested this steampunk gnome from her last year and I thought it was awesome.
I should have notified her about my intentions, but I was too shy and too excited to start something new that I just kind of… did it, assuming that the proliferation of art wasn’t something to be argued over. And it’s not, it’s just the principle of the thing, really. I’m only starting to understand how hard it is to keep this project up, and I’ve only just started.
So, anyway, things are worked out now and I’m no longer a big sobbing mess over this. Fhew!
“There are multiple levels of Gay Music. Some bands are what we like to call Gateway Bands. They lure children in with Pop Grooves and Salacious Melodies leaving them wanting more. They’ll move on to more dangerous bands and the next thing you know you’ve got a homosexual for a child.”—Bands That Will Make You Gay. I’m going to start using this list for recommended listening. :]
“Vimeo has, in the grand scheme of things, made me a better person. It’s expanded my monkeysphere, and made me more aware of the world around me. People from all over the world come here to … well, to be nice to each other. And that astounds me, and reminds me that no matter what the media or anyone says, we’re all still just people. And that’s encouraging. When I go to YouTube, I feel hated. We go there to watch things we know we’ll only find there, but then when our little foray is over, we scurry back into the warm burrow that is Vimeo. And I LOVE that. I love returning to something warm and fuzzy, in a place where I’m known and liked. And every time I watch this video, Simon (it’s been like twenty times now) I get a little choked up. Because YOU make me feel warm and fuzzy. Your love for this place makes me feel loved in turn, and that I think is the fundamental difference between here and there - love and hate.”—Adam Holwerda on Simon's video
Tumblr assigns a sequential number to each site on their service. The lower the number, the older the site. To find your number, login to Tumblr, go to the Following Page, then click on the name of your site in the top right corner of the screen just below the “log out” link. Now, look at the URL in your browser address bar and note the number at the end of the URL. Mine looks like this:
