Photos from space - the cover of the new book is ready! Pictures chosen, writing the dedications today, out in mid-October.
I’m just sayin’
That sound you’re hearing is the sound of SHOTS BEING FIRED
I spit out my coffee
i promise i am not trying to draw attention to my booby, but the fact that I JUST BOUGHT MASS-PRODUCED MARVEL MERCHANDISE THAT REMEMBERED NICK FURY AND BLACK WIDOW EXIST.
IT’S A TANK TOP!! FOR WOMEN!!
JUNIORS WOMEN!! (!!!!! NOT ONLY MARVEL SHIT GEARED TOWARD YOUNGER WOMEN, BUT IT INCLUDES FURY AND NATASHA!!!!!!)
(and none for hawkeye bye. aw, shirt.)
no “i love a man in uniform” or “i need a hero” or “get both fists in me and do a bongo solo on my cervix, cap” or whatever other bullshit there is. just pictures! and the word MARVEL!
i bought it at my stupid job but you can get it here too for a little more money. it’s pretty rad. and comfortable. and $7.50. i’m very fat and the xl fit, but i went with the xxl because the material is really thin.
also i was trying to draw a little bit of attention to my booby.
If you woke up as a woman one day who is the one male celebrity you’d be prepared to date?
I think in keeping with both the classic rock theme and the OTT-ness of each successive season, I’d be pretty disappointed at this point if season 10 of Supernatural didn’t end to the tune of Styx’s “Come Sail Away”:
I thought that they were angels, but to my surprise;
we climbed aboard a starship and headed for the skies!
Exit Sam and Dean, stage …up. fin.
Please, please share this like wildfire.
My classmate, Susan Hess-Logeais, recently told me about the documentary she’s making called “Soar,” about two amazing young dancers, Kiera and Uriah. It’s incredible, and the young ladies featured in this are astounding, talented, dedicated and extremely important individuals.Once I heard, I had to share it here. It’s the kind of thing that actually gets attention on tumblr when everybody else ignores it - ignores excellence in black girls, ignores disabled people, and lets them fall by the wayside. So I’m asking, please, please help these girls out, and if not, please reblog and share.
From the “Soar” press release:
"If you’ve ever seen Portland sisters Kiera Brinkley and Uriah Boyd dance together, you know they share a bond that goes beyond sisterhood. 18 year-old Uriah grew up helping Kiera, age 20, adapt after a childhood illness resulted in the amputation of Kiera’s hands and legs just one month after Uriah was born.
“You really have to see them to believe it,” says filmmaker and dancer Susan Hess Logeais. “Kiera can move in ways that are incredibly powerful and graceful, and Uriah is an expressive and talented dancer on her own. But when you see the two of them dance together, you see everything: the struggle, the bond, the joy, the frustration, the mutual love. It’s truly overpowering to watch, and audiences respond pretty intensely.
Hess Logeais is currently fundraising to help pay for the event and finish her film, which she hopes will be eye-opening and inspiring. “We want to change people’s ideas about what is possible,” she says. “For all of us, but especially for the millions of people living with alternate abilities, Kiera shows us what happens when you challenge your limitations. That’s a message I would love to share with as many people as possible.” To find out more about “Soar,” the film, and see some powerful footage of the sisters’ dance, visit the Soar Seed and Spark campaign. Kiera, Uriah and Susan are hoping that the disabled community will join the “Soar” community and support their efforts.”
"Soar" has a crowdfunding project going, but it’s having trouble reaching its goal - and this is just too important to let slip. Please help. Signal boost, share, donate if you can, but DO NOT let Kiera and Uriah be forgotten.

THANK YOU so much for reading, and THANK YOU for sharing. This is big, and important, and something good that needs to happen. Thank you.
So my filmmaker classmate Susan who’s behind “Soar,” Just talked to me literally right now, and told me that this post has generated THE MOST attention and donations in their entire campaign. They’ve been on the radio and had interviews, and it hasn’t budged, but since this post went up, they ARE getting positive attention.
That means, in essence, TUMBLR IS THE ONLY PLACE PAYING ATTENTION TO THESE AMAZING GIRLS.
And that means two things:
1) YOU GUYS ROCK
2) WE HAVE TO KEEP CIRCULATING THIS, AND DONATING, BECAUSE PEOPLE ACTUALLY GIVE A CRAP HERE.
Also - they only have to reach 80% - which is much more doable than 100%, and also means WE CAN DO THIS. This is NOT an impossible goal, lovelies, keep sharing, keep giving what you can, and this incredible film WILL. GET. MADE.
THANK YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH.
I want a movie made that fits this poster.
Here’s what happens when your major metropolitan area experiences negative double digit temperatures: the lake starts vaporizing.
The insanely frigid great lakes are currently warmer than the insanely frigid Chicago area, so the lakes are vaporizing. This is one of the most stunning non-CGI things I’ve ever seen.
'This is Baloo, an American Black Bear- he's 12 years old, and he's been in this wildlife sanctuary here in Atlanta ever since he was a little cub, and all through his life, even into adulthood, he's been keeping company with a couple of animals- well, you just wouldn't expect.'
