Do not hate the kids who read Wuthering Heights because of Twilight.
Do not hate the kids who support LGBTQ rights because of Glee.
Do not hate the kids who call themselves feminists because of Beyonce. 
Do not hate the kids who read LotR because of GoT. 
Do not hate the kids who question beauty standards because of All About that Bass. 

Support them. Encourage them. Protect them at all costs. 
I don’t care how you learned it. You are learning good things. 


“My first test, I tested with Chris Colfer. And we went up to the elevator together and I kind of helped him get checked in, and I saw that he had all the Artie sides, and I’m like, “Oh, God, I helped my competition.” But then I found out they literally created a role for him. And then we came back two days later and tested again, and that time Jenna was there - she had flown in from New York. And Chris was like, “I hope I get it!” And we were like, “Um, I think it’s pretty safe to say… Like, you’re Kurt. They created it for you.” ‘Cause each of us had somebody else that we tested against. Like, there was nobody else. He was it.” (x)

My girl is away at a wedding this weekend. I’m missing her in a big way, so I went on to Facebook to see if she posted any pics. Found this video of a marching band playing “Killing in the Name” by Rage Against the Machine. It made me smile because this is her band, man. Also, she was a marching band geek in high school.

She still listens to Rage all the time, and this used to be her theme song. (She found a new one when, after a year in NA, she realized “fuck you I won’t do what you tell me” was the wrong attitude if she wanted to stay clean.)

This is FANTASTIC video. 

Tagging Fanci for marching band awesomeness.

Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.

God bless ‘what’s his name’.


"Our wisdom is all mixed up with what we call our neurosis. Our brilliance, our juiciness, our spiciness, is all mixed up with our craziness and our confusion, and therefore it doesn’t do any good to try to get rid of our so-called negative aspects, because in that process we also get rid of our basic wonderfulness. We can lead our life so as to become more awake to who we are and what we’re doing rather than trying to improve or change or get rid of who we are or what we’re doing. The key is to wake up, to become more alert, more inquisitive and curious about ourselves."
— Pema Chödrön

Does anyone actually achieve work and family balance? Because man, I suck at this.

doodlebrew asked: "Love explosions...dirty."

I wasn’t… oh damn. Why do I walk right into these things? I was thinking about hearts exploding with everlasting love, not… that.
