Not Iambic….Do Not Accept…
These tags I’ll pop, and boast in rhyming verse
that what I wear puts swagger in my gait;
though twenty shillings have I in my purse,
my self-esteem and manhood both inflate
when lofty furs I purchase for a cent.
Thy grandpa’s clothes are worthy salvage, though
they smell a trifle musty. Still, I spent
much less to dress myself from head to toe.
To save or not to save? The question’s moot.
I’ll never give my coin to high-street crooks.
These dusty shelves will yield their hidden loot
to those, like me, more frugal in their looks.
Like ancient coins washed up on distant shores,
I’ll find my treasures in these thrifty stores.
- Macklemore, “Thrift Shoppe”

Sometimes when I dream, I sense a part of me that’s missing. It’s a strange feeling having your heart remember something your mind can not.

Feel the sea monster. Be the sea monster. Actually the octopus is a very intelligent creature, and can do cool things like open twist-top bottles to get food out. Oh and three fifths of the neurons (the electrical pulses that make brains work) are in their arms. …Be the sea monster. (via Tentacular Leggings (Made to Order) | Black Milk Clothing)
Wearing things with tentacles on them would be a shortcut straight to my heart.

This is really offensive.
Why is this offensive?
i don’t think it’s offensive either. it’s obviously meant to provoke thought/discussion, and is successful in doing so.
“So my amazing daughter, Emma, turned 5 last month, and I had been searching everywhere for new-creative inspiration for her 5yr pictures. I noticed quite a pattern of so many young girls dressing up as beautiful Disney Princesses, no matter where I looked 95% of the “ideas” were the “How to’s” of how to dress your little girl like a Disney Princess…We chose 5 women (five amazing and strong women), as it was her 5th birthday but there are thousands of unbelievable women (and girls) who have beat the odds and fought (and still fight) for their equal rights all over the world”

If a black actor is cast as The Human Torch, what’s next? Some guy not made out of rocks playing The Thing?
News has broken that Michael B. Jordan (Chronicle) is being considered to play Johnny Storm (The Human Torch) in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. Naturally, comic book fans across the Internet are furious, because they’ve had it with all the reboots and just want to preserve the magic of the 2005 original — oh, wait, no. They’re angry because Michael B. Jordan is black. And in the comics, Johnny Storm is white.
