I just don’t feel comfortable posting the entire song on YouTube, so the second chorus is missing from this video. Hence the abrupt transition in the middle.

@digitaldiscipline you wanted to see this.

"Animal Crossing, The Sims, and Minecraft are all worldwide sensations made by what one would now..."

“Animal Crossing, The Sims, and Minecraft are all worldwide sensations made by what one would now consider to be AAA companies, and yet, since not one of these games has violence as a core mechanic, each and every one of them has been criticized as not being ‘game-y’ enough.

The fact that the same criticism is levied at so-called ‘casual games’ and ‘casual gamers’ reveals a link between the two: games that don’t include violence as a core mechanic are perceived by the community as being fundamentally more feminine than games that do. Games with women-majority audiences, women-majority casts, and women-majority dev teams are frequently lumped in with this kind of critique.

Violence, goes the logic, is what makes a game masculine — and, by extension — being masculine is what makes a video game a video game.”

I'm not smart. I just have a file of tricks that I use to behave like I was smart.

when you get called smart and you feel horrible because now people will expect you to be less slow than you are and know things you don’t and not forget how to do things like talk and eat and look for lost objects and you’re like “I’m not smart” and people think you’re insulting yourself or fishing for more compliments but you’re just trying to say “I am not what you think I am” which is true

STORY TIME:

I work in a decent sized, local, indie bookstore. It’s a great job 99% of the time and a lot of our customers are pretty neat people. Any who, middle of the day this little old lady comes up. She’s lovably kooky. She effuses how much she loves the store and how she wishes she could spend more time in it but her husband is waiting in the car (OH! I BETTER BUY HIM SOME CHOCOLATE!), she piles a bunch of art supplies on the counter and then stops and tells me how my bangs are beautiful and remind her of the ocean (“Wooooosh” she says, making a wave gesture with her hand)

Ok. I think to myself. Awesomely happy, weird little old ladies are my favorite kind of customer. They’re thrilled about everything and they’re comfortably bananas. I can have a good time with this one. So we chat and it’s nice.

Then this kid, who’s been up my counter a few times to gather his school textbooks, comes up in line behind her (we’re connected to a major university in the city so we have a lot of harried students pass through). She turns around to him and, out of nowhere, demands that he put his textbooks on the counter. He’s confused but she explains that she’s going to buy his textbooks.

He goes sheetrock white. He refuses and adamantly insists that she can’t do that. It’s like, $400 worth of textbooks. She, this tiny old woman, bodily takes them out of her hands, throws them on the counter and turns to me with a intense stare and tells me to put them on her bill. The kid at this point is practically in tears. He’s confused and shocked and grateful. Then she turns to him and says “you need chocolate.” She starts grabbing handfuls of chocolates and putting them in her pile.

He keeps asking her “why are you doing this?” She responds “Do you like Harry Potter?“ and throws a copy of the new Cursed Child on the pile too.

Finally she’s done and I ring her up for a crazy amount of money. She pays and asks me to please give the kid a few bags for his stuff. While I’m bagging up her merchandise the kid hugs her. We’re both telling her how amazing she is and what an awesome thing she’s done. She turns to both of us and says probably one of the most profound, unscripted things I’ve ever had someone say:

“It’s important to be kind. You can’t know all the times that you’ve hurt people in tiny, significant ways. It’s easy to be cruel without meaning to be. There’s nothing you can do about that. But you can choose to be kind. Be kind.”

The kid thanks her again and leaves. I tell her again how awesome she is. She’s staring out the door after him and says to me: “My son is a homeless meth addict. I don’t know what I did. I see that boy and I see the man my son could have been if someone had chosen to be kind to him at just the right time.”

I’ve bagged up all her stuff and at this point am super awkward and feel like I should say something but I don’t know what. Then she turns to me and says: I wish I could have bangs like that but my darn hair is just too curly.“ And leaves.

And that is the story of the best customer I’ve ever had. Be kind to somebody today.

Concept: Some jackass shows Bucky how to make a blog and it becomes really popular. Not because it’s the blog of James Buchanan Barnes, American Legend, War Hero, Infamous Assassin, Alleged Terrorist. Nobody even knows it’s his blog. It gets really popular because people think it’s a really great shitpost generator or something. Because Bucky is just a Weird Fucking Person and everything he posts on his fucking personal blog comes off as somewhere between dril and Jaden Smith and people are like “this is some quality garbage right here” and thus Accidental Memelord Bucky is born.

Bucky posts things like

“What is wrong with bananas. I ate a banana today and it was Wrong. America why”

“Every time I put on my eye makeup it gets bigger. My whole face is eyeliner now.”

“Why does friendship feel so much like punching”

“When I wake up in the middle of the night I am either thinking ‘who am I? does my life have meaning?’ or “did I already eat all of the plums?’”

“Why are you so grumpy” they ask me. they do not realize this is just my Face.”

“I know i said i would give my left arm for a cup of coffee but i am more awake now and i would like my arm back please”

“I guess I must have done something horrible in a past life. I mean. I definitely did something horrible in this life, so. “

SOME ONE WRITE THIS PLEASE.

We never got to meet Hardison’s Nana and that should be changed.

sarcastartist:

terapsina:

So everyone else on the team had people from their past showing up.

In Archie we met the person who introduced and trained Parker for a life of crawling through tight spaces, gymnasticing (know that’s not a word, don’t care) through moving laser traps and rappelling down extremely tall buildings.

With Eliot there was his first love Aimee. There was Moreau. And there was Vance.

From Nate’s past we got to see his ex wife Maggie, his ex-best friend/kinda frenemy Sterling, his childhood best friend Father Paul and his dad Jimmy Ford.

Even Sophie, whose past and identity will forever be veiled in mystery got like four. Marcus Starke from The Two Live Crew Job, who she worked with at some point. Tara, who owed her an apparently pretty big favor. That Russian hockey player who helped her steal the Stanley Cup. And auntie Countess of Kensington.

And I don’t think we ever got even one person from Hardison’s past.

What I’m trying to say here is that we need a Leverage movie and it should be about Alec’s Nana and how the trio pulls Sophie and Nate out of their “retirement” to help bring justice to whoever it was that did her wrong. 

But it should also include embarrassing baby pictures, a bunch of Hardison’s foster siblings, and at least one scene that showcases both where Hardison got his good heart and his fierceness from.

p.s. I REALLY WANTED TO MEET HARDISON’S NANA!!!

bellesbooknook:

After hearing how vehemently others put down and devalue YA, I think it’s important to remember that the antagonists of almost every YA novel are adults who stifle young people from being exactly who they are, who think they know what’s best for them, and who don’t take the time to listen to or try to understand them and their viewpoint.

buzzfeedlgbt:

Nearly every year, for the past thirty years, Frances Goldin has gone to New York City Pride holding a sign that reads, “I adore my lesbian daughters. Keep them safe.” (x)


“Since the beginning of the parade, I’ve been going and waving my sign,” Goldin said. “It sort of hit a nerve with people, particularly those whose parents rejected them. The response to the sign is always so great — it urges me to keep going.”

“Everybody would come running up to her and cry, kiss her, and say, ‘Would you call my mother?’ or ‘Would you be my mother?’” her daughter, Sally, explained. 


“She’d take down names and addresses and write letters to these kids’ mothers!” 

When asked about all the young LGBT parade-goers who have begged her to speak to their own mothers, Goldin replied, “I think I changed a few people’s minds and I’m glad about that. Everyone should support their gay and lesbian children, they’re missing a lot in life if they don’t.”
