my little cousin got bit by a house spider and she was crying so i went to get some stuff to soothe and numb it but before i could even walk out the door i heard her quietly whisper ‘i can’t handle the responsibility of being spiderman’
When I find the perfect rock on the ground to add to my rock collection
You can tell a lot about someone by the music they listen to. Hit shuffle on your ipod/iphone/itunes media player and write down the first 10 songs. Then pass this on to 10 people.
- Help I’m Alive - Metric
- No Cars Go - Arcade Fire
- True Love On The Side - Lana Del Rey
- This Love (Will Be Your Downfall) - Ellie Goulding
- Who Will? - Patrick Wolf
- Cutdown - Matt & Kim
- Sim - Kyu
- Dance Apocalyptic - Janelle Monae
- Tru - Stars
- Don’t Leave Me - Regina Spektor
I kind of forgot like halfway through so this is a list of songs as I remembered that I was supposed to be writing them down also tagging jae, heather, tomato, kiby, kiki and AJ but I can’t be bothered to do it properly. so. yeah.
Anonymous said: Shouldn't Steve be sterile too, really? Otherwise, what's the reason for why there's not an army of US government created Captain America kids running around? You'd think that'd be the next logical step when they realized they couldn't recreate the serum...
Well, since the serum is an enhancement, it’s unlikely to be passed through genetics (the doctors probably tested this, somehow, haha). Steve’s kids are more likely to inherit his asthma and weak stature.
OH MY GOD THO
A SINISTER GOVT EXPERIMENT TO CREATE AN ARMY OF TINY CAPTAIN AMERICAS
STEVE FINDS OUT ABOUT IT AT SOME POINT
AND IT’S BASICALLY ELEVEN TOW-HEADED, ASTHMATIC, ALLERGIC, IMMUNO-COMPROMISED LITTLE BEANPOLES WITH BAD ATTITUDES
SOCKED AWAY SOMEWHERE
LIKE IN A WAREHOUSE OR WHATEVER
WITH A COUPLE OF OVERWHELMED INTERNS BABYSITTING THEM
BECAUSE THE RESEARCHERS HAD ALL THEIR FUNDING TAKEN AWAY WHEN CAPTAIN AMERICA’S SECRET UBERMENCH CLONES TURNED OUT TO BE A BUNCH OF WEAKLINGS
AND NOBODY KNOWS WHAT TO DO WITH THIS GAGGLE OF KIDS (WHO ARE SHRILL AND UNMANAGEABLE AND WHEEZE A LOT)
EXCEPT MAKE SURE THEY GET ADEQUATE MEDICAL CARE AND REGULAR MEALS
AND REGRET THEIR IN RETROSPECT VERY OBVIOUS ERRORS
AND HOPE STEVE DOESN’T FIND OUT
WHICH OF COURSE HE DOES
BACK AT THE TOWER
EVERYONE’S INHALERS KEEP GETTING MIXED UP
THERE ARE COLORED PENCILS EVERYWHERE
A FISTFIGHT ABOUT THE NATURE OF JUSTICE ENSUES BETWEEN THE 9 YEAR OLD ONE AND ONE OF THE 11 YEAR OLDS
Everything Beyonce does is careful and thought out. Her entire image is perfection crafted from planning ahead. She does not ‘wing it’ or throw things into her performances and public appearances ‘just because’.
What she did at this award show was amazing, especially because of how intentional and thought out it clearly was.
Feminism is a scary word for a lot of people. Many women are afraid of calling themselves feminist because they think it implies anger, hatred of men, or a rejection of traditional femininity.
Beyonce presented everyone watching with two distinct images of what many viewers viewed as two very different women. There is the strong, independent FEMINIST. She is the woman who likes being in control and being in the spotlight. Then there is the WIFE and MOTHER. She is soft, sweet, smiling at the husband and child you can tell she loves and values so much.
For every girl watching who was afraid to be a feminist, afraid to be powerful, because of what she thought she would lose, this is an incredible message. You can be all the things you want to be. You can be both. Feminists can have amazing happy, full lives full of both traditional and modern womanhood.
Feminism means gender should not be a source of persecution or a restriction of your choices. Feminism mean the type of person you should be is based on what you value, not what outside forces pressure you to value because of your gender or biological sex. Shout at the top of your lungs that you are a feminist and proud. Then go and be the exact person that you want to be.

edit: i went ahead and emailed joseph fink after all but given his dismissal of laura and twitter post about not answering emails about the apache tracker anymore (gosh it must be nice not to have to talk about racism when you don’t want to) i am not super hopeful. if i don’t hear from him within the week i’ll post my email for the sake of posterity/transparency and so no one can accuse me of being secretly mean to the creators, because seriously i don’t think i’ve ever been so gentle about explaining why using n8vs as the butt of your joke is a not very nice thing as i was in that email.
edit 2: here’s the email and some follow up thoughts. i’m really not interested in debating this matter any further, fyi. just posting for posterity. PLEASE read this post before contacting me about this.
soooo i recently finished episode 25 of welcome to night vale and i have some feelings regarding the whole apache tracker plot. i will put them under the cut because spoilers but i will tell you right here and now that i hate this character and his plot arc. the more i think about it, the more i hate it. the more i try to imagine it from a position that is not racist or belittling, the more i fail, and hate it even more, and the more it taints my otherwise wholly positive feelings regarding welcome to night vale.
