Fedora Boss didn’t know Greek was a language.

He thought Greeks spoke a bastardized version of Latin.

Write What Nobody Knows

missworded:

As a writer, write what you know.

Tell me about that time the soda came out your nose because your friend made you laugh so hard.

Tell me about the burning nose sensation that you didn’t care about because you were too happy.

Tell me about the burning you did care about, that time when he broke your heart without ever knowing your name.

Write what you wish you didn’t know.

Tell me about your grief, the grief that most will never have to understand, and most don’t give a crap about.

Tell me about your bitter laughter that turned into the glimmering kind when the one person who can always make your heart smile walks into the room.

Tell me what you wore that day.

Write what you can’t know.

Tell me what happens after we die, where the spirit goes, what color it is, what kind of cheese it likes to devour.

Tell me about the planet you created with nothing more than a glass of wine and your keyboard.

Tell me about the dream lover you imagine, the one with the unpronounceable name that never needs to be said to be heard.

Write what others know.

Tell me about that jerk in the grocery store, the one who rolled a cart over your foot, the one we’ve all freaking met, and who we wish would get a bag of marshmallows upside the head.

Tell me about your cat.  Yes, all the things about your cat.  Wait–I’ll get some noms to share.

Write what you don’t know.

We’re all making up this stuff as we go along, anyhow.

white people back at it again

they all look exactly as you would expect them to

Soooooo…. Where’s the riot police to stop them……..

My question exactly

Support Pray for Darren Wilson? We still don’t know who he is, as he and his family were reportedly escorted out of town- and out of the jurisdiction!- while the residents of Ferguson are being tear-gassed and vilified after Darren Wilson murdered Michael Brown.

wait…

ttfkagb:

are people pouring buckets of ice on themselves to avoid donating to a good cause? and should i snitch on californian’s for wasting water during this wicked drought?

I beg you, as your friend, not to go there. I got SO MUCH FUCKING ANON HATE for saying this, and I didn’t think I had anon on!

"IT RAISES AWARENESS!!"

Of what? How cold ice water is?

"Some people donate, too! It’s very effective!"

It appears to be! Donations are up for the ALS charity, and it seems like a good charity to boot!

"SO YOU JUST WANTS PEOPLE WITH CANCER TO DIE."

Dumping ice water on your head is not going to help that either way!

"I DON’T HAVE $100! I HAD TO!!"

You could just not do either!

"Nobody even knew what ALS was before this campaign!"

Lou Gehrig’s Disease? Nope, you’re right. Never heard of it, ever.

Look, if you want to do it, do it. It’s not hurting anyone. But this gleeful “I DID IT, NOW I DON’T HAVE TO DONATE!!” that I keep seeing all over my Facebook is very… odd.

The Jackie Robinson West All-Stars Little League Baseball Team. 

Is an all-Black team of rising baseball stars from Morgan Park, a neighborhood of Chicago’s South Side. During the World Series opener in Williamsburg, Pa the team beat Lynnwood, Washington team via the mercy rule with a score of 12-2!!! (Mercy Rule Definition:brings a sports event to an early end when one team has a very large and presumably insurmountable lead over the other team.)  

Bill Haley, whose father founded the team in 1971. “When you see kids from similar backgrounds and similar situations, you pull for them to be successful and beat the odds,” he told the New York Times. 

Like their team’s namesake, Jackie Robinson, who first broke baseball’s color barrier 67 years ago, these boys also dream of the majors. They believe the passion they share for baseball will help them win it all.

The Team will compete against other leagues from around the globe, in hopes of winning the little league’s highest honor. 

The Jackie Robinson West All-Stars take on their next competitor, the Mountain Ridge Little League of Las Vegas, Nevada August 17.

Always reblog

10/10 THIS

I actually adore her because I’ve NEVER seen a black person get to be so fucking frank and honest about racial injustice on tv.

She’s real, she’s smart, she’s witty, she’s informed and she’s fucking unapologetic. I’m obsessed.

Coming this Fall on MenPR!

SAY YES TO THE TUX

It’s something every father has dreamed of since the first time he hugged his precious son- but not in a gay way, in a totally manly way.

"One day, son. One day, you will find the perfect woman, and I will help you find the perfect tux."

Follow Billy and his father, Big Billy, as they begin the journey to finding the perfect tux… 

"I was really hoping Billy would want to wear my wedding tux. You know, pass that tradition down and maybe he could pass it down to his own son!"
"Dad! I already told you! I’m my own man and I want my own tux!"
"They grow up so fast! I just… I just want to feel like a part of your day!"

Meet William Von Kennedyson XII and his father, William Von Kennedyson XI as William Von Kennedyson XII plans his wedding on his estate on Nantucket…

"William! You will wear a tan suit with a pink shirt, just like I did and my own father before me! You have a duty to this family’s name! You’re not just some Vanderbilt, you’re a KENNEDYSON!"
"Fine, father! But I’m popping my collar and you can’t stop me!"
"If you want the new convertible Lamborgini with rockets, you’ll do as you’re told."

And then there’s Joe, searching for the perfect tux with his father, uncle, three cousins and 11 members of his frat.

"Guys! I think this might be the one!
"Ugh, I don’t know Joe. I don’t think charcoal gray is your color."
"Agreed! I think you should just stick to traditional black."
"Son,we just want you to look your best and charcoal gray just… it just highlights all the wrong areas. I mean… your beer gut! You get them from me, I know, but…"
"Your dad is right, bro. It’s harsh, but it’s true and we need to be real with you. Maybe we should keep looking.
"Guys! We’ve already been to the Men’s Wearhouse and the Hollywood Suit Outlet! Where else can we go? This is supposed to be MY day and you’re ruining it!"

Will Billy wear a bit of this dad’s tux sewn into his tuxedo jacket?

Will William pop his pink collar… and the collar of his tux?

Will Joe succumb to the pressure of his family and bros, or will he choose the charcoal gray suit his heart is set on?

Coming this fall, stayed tuned for all the excitement and drama as three boys journey to find their tux… and become men.
