Remember when The Real World was much more than a bunch of trashy people getting drunk and hooking up? This clip is great, and I hope nobody has forgotten the beauty that was GENESISMS.

This party was great but I still managed to find it necessary to leave early so I could go to The Meatball Shop. I ordered the same exact thing that I ate there 5 hours earlier at dinner. I LOVE NEW YORK!

Flailing

Wed, 21 Nov 2012 14:39:39 -0800

theidiotking:

This might be hard to articulate, but I was talking to a close friend recently about something that doesn’t matter. Some dumb joke lead to another dumber joke and after a few moments we just started flailing our arms around in the air for a long time in the middle of the conversation. No speaking, just wild, uninterrupted, exaggerated movement with huge grins on our faces that gave way to uncontrollable laughter. And I realized that that’s all I want, and probably all anyone really wants deep down: the flailing. We don’t want to explain ourselves, we want to be understood on a million levels and we want to know people deeply and we want the responsibility of keeping secrets and having innate ingrained layered knowledge. We want inside jokes and we want to to be vulnerable and we want to feel like we are safe. I think that’s why as time goes on, awkward first dates and testing-the-waters Facebook messages and conversational icebreakers creep into daily life so much. We’re trying to recreate experiences that we’ve had with other people, or have with with people currently that we don’t see or talk to as frequently, or have a few of in daily life but want more. We’re greedy. It’s not a bad thing. It’s normal. It’s disgustingly human. We’re gluttons for attention and affection and love and understanding and we might never get our fill. Except for loners and hermits and misanthropes, but who wants to talk about them anyway? Let them write about themselves.




Dear America, Please Don't Fall for This Shit Again

Mon, 05 Nov 2012 23:22:45 -0800

This election season there’s a billowing cloud of misinformation being sprayed into the American psyche like a burping tail pipe on a primered Vega. And its smoke is thicker and blacker than ever before thanks to the Citizen’s United Supreme Court decision. Billions have been spent for one purpose and one purpose only: to obscure and distract from the fact that Mitt Romney is backing the identical agenda George W Bush did. It’s really and truly that simple. Lower taxes for the rich, cutting regulations for Wall Street, hawkish foreign policy with in many cases the same neocon foreign policy advisers W. Bush used make Romney/Ryan “W Bush 2: The Sequel to the Greatest Disaster Movie in Recent U.S. History, Available in Imax.” So please, America, don’t fall for this con all over again. Taxes for the rich are at record lows. The uber-wealthy and corps hide profits overseas and work the loopholes to avoid paying what they should. And because of the resulting tax shortfall, deficits soar and education and infrastructure are cut. Why in God’s name would anyone in their right mind support cutting taxes for the wealthy more? Especially when it’s been proven over and over again to do very little for the economy? And the idea of cutting regulations for Wall Street after the ‘08 collapse is as crazy as a guy in a hospital gown by the side of a highway waving Barbie dolls at passing cars. With the derivitives market larger than ever we need way more regulation of Wall Street, not less. And worst of all, Romney’s hawkish foreign policy is a beat for beat redux of the Bush doctrine of attack at the slightest hint of threat that led us into the disaster of the Iraq war. Call it “the edgy drifter with a knife” policy. Voting for Romney after the train wreck of that was the eight years of W. Bush is like losing your pay check playing a rigged game of three-card monte and then playing the same game again a week later cause the cards are a different color. But Obama is a socialist! He’s made things worse! What about the deficit?! Stop your witchy liberal word spells! These objections to Obama are nonsense and lies at best. They just are. This isn’t a “liberal” POV. It’s just the truth. Obama does have real failings as a president (illegal drone strikes, a baffling desire to make more trade deals, failure to prosecute past war crimes), but being a socialist big spender is not remotely one of them. The stock market and corporate profits have soared under the Obama administration. And the deficit is 60 percent from tax short falls from the '08 collapse and 20 percent from the Iraq war finally being properly counted. Only $1 trillion of the $5 trillion deficit is from spending that was for the stimulus package that stopped our nation from falling into a depression by any economic metric available. The fact is Obama has spent less than any president in 50 years. Even Obamacare is a private mandate that will drive billions to the insurance industry, much like the auto insurance mandate. Hardly socialism. In fact, it was a Republican plan to begin with. But Romney and his billionaire backers have twisted facts and outright lied like we’ve never seen before. And why? Because if they had to stand on the issues they wouldn’t receive a vote. Because Romney and Ryan are exactly on the same page as W. Bush. And that page is stained with champagne and sturgeon eggs. If Romney wins it will be because voters voted for the lies and the brand ID of the Republican party, not because of facts, context and reality. This is the essence of how a con works. The con man gets the mark to respond emotionally rather than [...]

givemeajobplease:

I went on a date last night and then you texted and asked, again, whether I would come there. Start our days with coffee, end with you making dinner. Forever. I feel myself tug towards yes and then I remember why it will always be no with you and I.

There are people in your life who are going to love you for all of the wrong reasons. They will love you for the best part of your face, the best part of you naked, the best mood on your best day, the best story you ever wrote, the best outfit you ever wore.

They are going to miss the scar on the underside of your nose from the time your older brothers dared you to run across a pile of logs. They won’t know that you fell on a hidden nail just as you completed the challenge. They’ll miss the scar on your finger, too from the time you were seven and closed a swiss army knife on it. They won’t understand that these are two of only a handful of things you can remember about your childhood. They’ll notice that you have great tits, but they’ll miss that your thumb tucks into their palm when you’re walking together and that your eyes have darker circles when a migraine is coming. They won’t know you get migraines. They won’t ask where the story you wrote came from, so they’ll never know that it was true. They’ll love it because it feels real to them. They’ll miss knowing the sweatshirt full of holes that they criticized you for wearing was your dads. You might tell them some of these things along the way, but they will remember the best things instead.

They will love your good moods, your energy, your sense of humor, but miss that you never turn to them, but rather to a shower or a pillow or the back of your throat to shed tears. They won’t ever consider you strong.

When the parts that aren’t your best come out, some people will shield their eyes as if you have just forced them to look directly into the sun for hours until their irises burn. They’ll silently make you promise to never show them that again. Those things are not to be shown. Be at your best so I can love you. I would love you more if only you never show me those things.

And you do not marry those people. You do not sit and sleepily drink coffee with those people. You leave those people and you remind yourself that they missed the better parts of you.

(image) The Big Parade was a huge hit. When MGM discovered that a clause in Vidor’s contract entitled him to 20% of the net profits, studio lawyers called a meeting with him. At the meeting, MGM accountants played up the costs of the picture while downgrading the studio forecast of its potential success. Vidor was persuaded to sell his stake in the film for a small sum. The film ran for 96 weeks at the Astor Theater alone and grossed $5 million (approximately $50 million in 2003 dollars) domestically by 1930, making it the most profitable release in MGM history at that point.

Later, when asked about the decision, Vidor said, “I thus spared myself from becoming a millionaire instead of a struggling young director trying to do something interesting and better with a camera.”

Feeling guilty, Louis B. Mayer offered Vidor assurances of being able to freely select his own subject matter in between studio assignments and the director went on to make Hallelujah!, the first studio film to feature an all-black cast.

Boys Having Sex pt. 1:

I’ve been using these new markers that my friend, Alexander Barrett, gave me and they’ve reminded me to just draw, don’t fuss, just draw. No worries.  I’m not that great at drawing, so I made a list of things I’d like to get better at: crying boys, crying girls, boys skateboarding, people having sex, crying vampires, monsters, statues, fake money, my best friends.. it goes on.. but, the past few nights I’ve been drawing people in intimate ways.. now, I’m sure this says something, whatever. I think it’s funny. and here’s part one. I’ll keep making them and be embarrassed by them. but, it sure is funny to me. Boys getting off, girl being bored. 

I love adi.

“It baffles me that a man such as yourself, a man who relies on that same First Amendment to pursue your own religious studies without fear of persecution from the state, could somehow justify stifling another person’s right to speech. To call that hypocritical would be to do a disservice to the word. Mindfucking obscenely hypocritical starts to approach it a little bit.”

- Chris Kluwe’s open letter to Emmett C. Burns Jr. as a response to this abhorrent letter that Mr. Burns sent to the owner of the Baltimore Ravens
