Sometimes it helps to surround yourself with the brain-dribblings of other creatives. We all do it, but there’s something about all those unique flavors of crazy that makes me want to snuggle and nurture my own cray-cray.
There is a part of me that still can’t quite believe that it is old enough to wear lipstick.
Apparently everything on tumblr is hyper-SJW shit?
I love their classy “titties” banner.
It’s been an epoch since I read Gatsby, but I always thought the capsule theme was “There IS a club, and YOU’RE not in it,” in terms of class mobility—that at the upper echelons, class mobility is nothing more than an illusion.
But like I said, it’s been an epoch.

i believe my own truth.:
You. YOU are one of the problem fans that make other fandoms think we’re crazy/annoying/stupid. Stop it!!
what the actual fuck. it’s hilarious that anyone is that fucking stupid and delusional. xDD
Bitch please, The X-Files fandom coined the term “shipping” before you were even born.
Wasn’t it The TOS Star Trek fandom back in the 60s?
^^TOS Trek is what I know from fandom-ing for *decades.* Ah, kids today…
30,000 year old flower revived.
Scientists have resurrected a flower from plant tissues found frozen in Siberian permafrost, thought to be 30,000-32,000 years old. The new Silene stenophylla is healthy and fertile, and producing viable seeds.
The experiment has excited many because it proves that material trapped in the permafrost is recoverable and usable - scientists have been working to recover other species of plant and animal life from the same area, such as the woolly mammoth.Science!
Jurassic Park is real!
YAY SCIENCE! Isn’t this a pretty little thing? I’m glad it’s back.
I think it’s also been done with Egyptian grain (and someone made booze out of it that sells for at least $70 a bottle).
I am reading an essay called Male-Male Desire in Pharaonic Egypt (by Alex Clayden) which is actually pretty good
I just need to draw attention to this little gem of a pick-up line
Attention, followers: you now know how to write “nice ass” in hieroglyphics.
all i ever wanted out of life tbh
It’s literally “beautiful your hindquarters” as Egyptian has no verb of existence.
To make a dramatic change from all the lovely mermaids and mermen we had last week, I’m kicking this week off with these classic True Men (and the classical WEASELS Man’s Life cover) pulp zine covers, because they are hilarious.
I just woke up and omg the notes.
Pulp mag papercuts ripped my flesh…
What they did not want you to ever find out is that your generation, the generation born between 1980-1995, actually outnumbers the Baby Boomers. They knew that if you ever turned your eye towards political reform, you could change the world. They tried to keep you sated on vapid television shows and vapid music. They cut off your education and fed you brain candy. They took away your music and gave you Top Ten pop stations. They cut off your art and replaced it with endless reality shows for you to plug into, hoping you would sit quietly by as they ran the world. We as a society are only as strong as our weakest link. Give ‘em hell, kids.
I’ve never loved a post so much in the history of tumblr
You don’t owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don’t owe it to your mother, you don’t owe it to your children, you don’t owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked ‘female’.
So worth the read. The fact that most of the people on the other end of her interactions probably had no idea how much of a crasshole they were being is why this needs to be talked about. Ask yourself if you’d say this to your daughter? And then ask how you’d feel if someone said it to your son. Too many people are so used to women being treated as sex objects that it doesn’t sink in until they consider how the same thing would sound if it were said to a man.
This article by Meagan Marie is incredible for two reasons. First, because this type of behavior is still happening within the industry and second, because like the character she promotes for Crystal Dynamics, Meagan is a fighter and she’s not going to put up with this.
The kind of behavior she…
