I am very bored and lonely. 18 year old high school dropout and avid fan of things that would fall into my age demographic. I watch TV a lot.
One week from today, the military will officially be done with Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Judging from the upcoming Marine Corps Times cover story, it looks like the military’s ready.
Wonderful, simply wonderful.

Ryan Gosling breaks up a fight on 14th Street.
dudes are fighting over a painting in the middle of the street, Ryan just happens to be crossing the street and is his usual awesome self.
the girls commentary in this is also hysterical.
bro of the year nominee for sure now.
Sometimes I’m like “NYC, knock it off” and other times I’m like “I LIVE IN A TOWN WHERE RYAN GOSLING BREAKS UP STREET FIGHTS”
you have bad days.
Sometimes you poop your pants.
Sometimes you have both.
things that are beautiful.
Perfectly encapsulates the current state of the human condition.
It’s really nice to read a story about parents and kids that doesn’t involve violence, parents who love their kids no matter what. It gives one hope.
Reblogged from andrewshopland.
“Mommy, they are just like me.”
My oldest son is six years old and in love for the first time. He is in love with Blaine from Glee.
For those who don’t know Blaine is a boy…a gay boy, the boyfriend of one of the main characters, Kurt.
This isn’t a ‘he thinks Blaine is really cool’ kind of love. It is a mooning at a picture of Blaine’s face for a half hour followed by a wistful “He’s so pretty” kind of love.
He loves the episode where two boys kiss. My son will call people in from other parts of the house to make sure they don’t miss his ‘favorite part.’ He’s been known to rewind it and watch it over again…and force other to, as well, if he doesn’t think people have been paying enough attention.
This infatuation doesn’t bother me or his father. We live in a very hip-liberal neighborhood, many of our friends are gay, and idea of having a gay son isn’t something that bothers either of us. Our son is going to be who he is, and it is our job to love him. End of story.
He is also six. Six year olds get obsessed with all kinds of things. This might not mean anything at all. We always joke that he’s either gay, or we have the best blackmail material in the history of mankind when he’s a 16 year old straight boy. (Take that naked bath time pictures!)
Then the other day we were traveling across the state listening to the Warblers album (of course), and in the middle of Candles, my son pipes up from the back seat.
“Mommy, Kurt and Blaine are boyfriends.”
“Yes, they are,” I affirm.
“They don’t like kissing girls. They just kiss boys.”
“Mommy, they are just like me.”
“That’s great, baby. You know I love you no matter what?”
“I know…” I could hear him rolling his eyes at me.
When we got home I recapped this conversation to his Dad, and we stood simply looking into each other’s eyes for a moment. Then we smiled.
“So if at 16 he wants to make a big announcement at the dinner table, we can say ‘You told us when you were six. Pass the carrots’ and he’ll be disappointed we stole his big dramatic moment,” my husband says with a laugh and hugs me.
Only time will tell if my son is gay, but if he is I am glad he’s mine. I am glad he has been born into our family. A family full of people who will love and accept him. People who will never want him to change. With parents who will look forward to dancing at his wedding.
And I have to admit, Blaine would be a really cute son-in-law.
Well goddamn this is sweet.
Oh, my heart. I…can’t…take…the…cute.
Big effin’ day at CollegeHumor!
- Sarah officially announced she’s leaving to join the writing staff at SNL.
- They released the trailer for A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas, and Amir’s in it.
I admire, love, and respect both these people more than Internet words can express. I will miss Sarah deeply, and look forward to missing Amir even more.
I’m in the fetal position weeping, and swallowing my anti depressants like they’re tic tacs. Why Sarah? Why must you leave!?
RIP NANCY WAKE (30 August 1912 – 7 August 2011)
Ms Wake, who has died in London just before her 99th birthday, was a New Zealander brought up in Australia. She became a nurse, a journalist who interviewed Adolf Hitler, a wealthy French socialite, a British agent and a French resistance leader. She led 7,000 guerrilla fighters in battles against the Nazis in the northern Auvergne, just before the D-Day landings in 1944. On one occasion, she strangled an SS sentry with her bare hands. On another, she cycled 500 miles to replace lost codes. In June 1944, she led her fighters in an attack on the Gestapo headquarters at Montlucon in central France.
Work began earlier this month on a feature film about Nancy Wake’s life. Ms Wake, one of the models for Sebastian Faulks’ fictional heroine, Charlotte Gray, had mixed feelings about previous cinematic efforts to portray her wartime exploits, including a TV mini-series made in 1987.
“It was well-acted but in parts it was extremely stupid,” she said. “At one stage they had me cooking eggs and bacon to feed the men. For goodness’ sake, did the Allies parachute me into France to fry eggs and bacon for the men? There wasn’t an egg to be had for love nor money. Even if there had been why would I be frying it? I had men to do that sort of thing.”
Ms Wake was also furious the TV series suggested she had had a love affair with one of her fellow fighters. She was too busy killing Nazis for amorous entanglements, she said.
Even before she escaped to Britain, through Spain, in 1943 to train as a guerrilla leader, Nancy had been top of the Gestapo’s French “wanted” list. With her husband, she ran a resistance network which helped to smuggle Jews and allied airmen out of the country.
Nancy recalled later in life that her parachute had snagged in a tree. The French resistance fighter who freed her said he wished all trees bore “such beautiful fruit”. Nancy retorted: “Don’t give me that French shit.”
<3 what a bad ass <3
I think that all vaginas are gross, but if i could marry one woman it would be her. WHY WASN’T SHE IN INGLORIOUS BASTERDS!?!?!?
“It’s like saying this glass of water is a glass of beer. Well, you can call it a glass of beer, but it’s not a glass of beer. It’s a glass of water. And water is what water is. Marriage is what marriage is.”
“It’s like saying Rick Santorum is a viable…
I know I’m a bit late on this fan-train, but Game of Thrones is a lot of fun, here’s a pic of Jon Snow and his Ghost Bro.
Oh, and here’s a Rainbro version, alternatively titled “Jon Bro: The BRAsterd of Winterchill”
So I guess that makes Joffrey, Myrcella, and Tonmen inBro’d.
