Rob Delaney: I love Levon Helm and America →
robdelaney: Levon Helm, drummer and singer of The Band, passed away from throat cancer last week. The outpouring of love directed his way over the last week, from every corner of the world, was remarkable. His family did an interesting thing too; they told the world before he died that he was in his final stages of battling cancer. About twenty-four hours after I’d heard the announcement of his...

afternoonsnoozebutton: inothernews: “I think most of the responses have been incredibly positive. There have only been a couple of people who took any issue with it, but anytime most people are positive, there are some people — just out of boredom — who will write the contrarian review because who wants to read only good reviews?” — Jesus H. Christ Fuck you, Judd Apatow. Y’all...
The Harper Government
The Harper Government has announced that it will be closing a maximum security prison in Ontario, and a medium security prison in Laval, Quebec. The Government claims this is due to a decrease in prison population and are closing these institutions as a cost cutting measure. The remaining inmates will be transferred to other institutions. So that looks pretty good on them, doesn’t it?...
Elderly Animals by Isa Leshko →
centophilia: I am traveling to sanctuaries across the country to photograph animals that are elderly or at the end stage of their lives. I began this series shortly after I had spent a year in New Jersey helping my sister care for my mother who has Alzheimer’s disease. When my mother got ill, I made a conscious decision to not photograph her. However, caring for her had a profound impact on me...
Mitt Romney: Tales from the Trail.
Mitt shuffled along the corridor; cold, scared, and alone. The sight of people wearing dirty clothes frightened Mitt; the smell of sweat offended his nostrils so much, he sought refuge by holding his tie to his nose; his face and body began to feel a little damp, and this worried Mitt. “Why is it so hot?” he wondered. “Why are my armpits wet?” A younger man began...

communismkills: Communists, socialists, Progressives, liberals of all kind just repulse me so much. Me too! How dare they fight for equality, a good standard of living, and equal opportunity for all! Those damn savages!
theatlantic: Gays in America: Unprecedented Progress in One Generation Above is most of a 1967 CBS News report titled “The Homosexuals,” the first attempt by network news to deal with the subject. It broke taboos in its time and is now impossible to watch without cringing. The footage has been sent around as commentators look back on the renowned career of Mike Wallace, who anchored the...

Looking through the list of people I follow I’ve noticed a few who update regularly but I haven’t seen their posts on my dashboard for months. Further, a few people who follow me have sent me messages letting me know my posts haven’t been on their dashboard. Anyone?
aldoushuxtable: Everyone seems to be all stressed and working hard and being bummed out and I have to say enough is enough. Do me/you/the rest of the world a favor. Get laid this week. Preferably while listening to music. Currently boning? GOOD! Keep it up! Everyone else? GET TO IT. I WANT THIS FOR US ALL. #boningforpeace
“… and as I’m stepping off the plane, I see Cheryl and the kids, and I just break down. Up until that point the whole situation hadn’t really hit me yet,” Jeff said. “That is an incredible story Jeff,” Kelly said. “We are all so happy that you’re alive and okay. We were all so worried sick.” Everyone agreed. Jeff smiled and, through...

- A question I thought was appropriate for the interview, but apparently was “out of order” and “wildly inappropriate and criminal”. The Starbucks brass are such dicks.

It's so weird how one minute you have your life...
Look, we both know why you’re here. You’re here because you lay awake at night, staring at your husband and wishing he was more like me. In fact, you wish everyone was more like me. No? Well, what is it then? Is it the fact that I am mysterious, charming, and have literally millions of billions of dollars? Is it that you need to know not only who I am but also what I am? Well...
