Probably my favorite thing about Bob’s Burgers is that they don’t do that thing where the characters try to one-up each other with an endless barrage of jokes? No, the characters react like actual people instead. They actually laugh or chuckle when somebody says something actually funny and/or weird. They stop mid-sentence. They do double-takes. And it all feels so very natural, because that is exactly what common people do. And that is such a refreshing change of pace, when you consider the fact that the norm in these things is to have jokes relentlessly thrown at you at break-necking speed.

also the comedy doesn’t rely on the parents hating and berating eachother idk i love that

it shows how you don’t need to be offensive to be funny

general banter is the best way to write dialogue

fart & butt jokes

#remember how this movie took female stereotypes and crushed them into a million pieces

casual reminder that Elle Woods scored a 179 on the LSAT, which is one point shy of a perfect score.

Casual reminder that Whatshisface here had family connections and was a legacy and shit, whereas Elle Woods came out of nowhere.

casual reminder that Elle Woods actually had an amazing background in real life issues that people dismissed as unimportant but managed to not only learn the law, but learned how to apply the law.

Casual reminder that Elle Woods used her lawyer skills to save a woman from an abusive relationship and also save another woman from trumped up murder charges and basically what I’m saying is you go, girl, go get ‘em Elle Woods, thank you for this movie.

what’s fantastic about this movie is that it’s not that fucked up brand of feminism where the girls who arent like other girls and sip tea and read hemingway look down on the blonde party sluts. the message of the movie is like, you can be blonde and attractive AND enjoy stuff like shopping and partying and you can still be smart and kick ass!!!

#and it focused on female friendships!!! her best friends were never less than her!! and older female best friends!! and didn’t pit her against vivian but had them grow into close friends!!#THE MOST IMPORTANT FEMINIST MEDIA OF OUR TIME


I’ve had Trap Queen stuck in my head since I heard it at the gym, this happens too much, why is it so catchy?

Until the late 1960s, it was illegal for interracial couples to marry in most states across the U.S., but that changed  June 12, 1967, when the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the fittingly named Mildred and Richard Loving, effectively and rightfully declaring that love can, should and does transcend race. This landmark Loving v. Virginia ruling is commemorated on Loving Day, which falls on June 12 each year, to teach others about this significant legal decision.

how many fucking variations of the “let’s do cute things like hold hands and take naps and also have rough sex against a wall” post are there on this hideous website

it’s the same situation as the awful giant veiny hand gripping a milky white thigh in a car thing they r both terrible


Anxiety attacks aren’t always hyperventilating and rocking back and forth



Anxiety attacks can take different forms, such as:

  • Unpredictable bouts of rage or irritability
  • Nit-pickiness (obsessive behavior, which may be a part of OCD), and even a hypersensitivity to disarray, chaos, or any sort of change
  • Fast-talking, stuttering, stumbling over words
  • Not talking at all
  • Sitting rigid, staring into space, almost seeming “zoned out”

Understanding the way our or other’s anxiety works can help to decrease the stigma and help to calm a person faster and get them out of that state. These are just a few, but it gives an idea of the range in which attacks can come.



why did everyone play the recorder in fourth grade what were they training us for

Ugh it’s a pet peeve of mine when people act like easily explained stuff is super mysterious. They were training you for beginners band. Music teachers at the elementary level start kids on recorders to teach the basics before handing them actual trumpets and clarinets in beginners band.


Even though I really don’t need more books I’m going to ask for recommendations because I have a problem. I’ve been embarrassingly into dystopia YA fiction, just finished the first two 5th wave books, I’m also into crime and suspense (i.e. anything by Gillian Flynn, Girl on the Train, etc.). I’m generally into most YA fiction as well, esp. stuff like Rainbow Rowell’s. Please feed my addiction I need more books!

Also if you just know of really good books that don’t fit any of that criteria I’m open to it, I’m just getting to a point where I’m running out of reading material here in Austin and I need more.

original powerpuff girls voice actresses learning about their replacements

Wow. Not cool there ladies. I’m hoping this is mostly out of context. These three women are established voice actors with strong careers and a plethora of parts under their belts (especially Tara Strong who is well known for roles like Harley Quinn). The show is being rebooted for a new audience and potentially with a different slant. These girls are up-and-coming new voice  actresses. These women aren’t lacking for work, and this probably isn’t going to be the same as “their” Powerpuff Girls. These folk should be encouraging new talents, not potentially riling up their fanbases against what will be the first major gigs for these young women over parts they had a decade ago. That’s kind of immature and petty.

Edit: Apparently, it gets worse. The most successful VA of the three actively lobbying to take potentially career-making parts away from the younger voice actresses. [link]


Edit Edit: Lauren Faust and Craig McCracken are getting in on the game (co-creators on the show when it started 17 years ago) via passive aggressive tweets and retweets about how the only true PPGs are the original three from a 1998-2005 series. [link | link | link | link]

These are grown, successful adults rallying their considerable fanbases against young up-and-coming actresses (including a WOC), calling for them to be fired and the show re-cast because they weren’t included on a reboot of a Cartoon Network property they helmed a decade ago. they’re using their power and fame to attempt to derail the careers of a new cast and crew, mostly that of the new VAs, since their names and faces are at the forefront of this mess.


Grow up and show a little professionalism and encouragement to the younger folk in your field.

Is there a reason people aren’t talking about Taylor Swift including Lena Dunham in her video and like, being friends with Lena Dunham who’s, you know, a racist and sexual abuser?

Cus any critiques of white women is apparently girl hate and antifeminist
