Found a poem in my drawing pad:
Legacy on a Saturday morning If you’re ever angry, or stressed or mad, If you’re feeling low, or depressed or sad, The thing to do to get rid of that frown: Have a nice cup of tea and a sit down. - joel b. 05/05
I was having trouble motivating myself to do anything , so I made a to-do list and said to myself that I was only allowed to do things on that list. Once I’d finished one thing, I had to do another off the list. So far today I have: Practised Vietnamese Made my bed Put a pile of dirty tea-towels in the wash Washed the dishes Practised guitar and ukulele Folded and put away laundry ...

fyeahcarlsagan: sweetcalamity: In a weak attempt to find out more about my family history (I’m adopted), I’m wondering if anybody on here has the last name Aurzadniczek, or knows somebody else with that name. I feel kind of bad doing this, but, here we go. I (sweetcalamity) am the… Signal boost!

picklemethis: fuckyeahgenderstudies: Toiletries. Women’s aid websites recommend that, in preparing to leave an abusive partner, after getting together legal documents and identification, money and some clothes, victims should get together toiletries. Often these things are overlooked; just as often, such items aren’t readily available at women’s centres and refuges. So… someone decided to do...

Every time, dear dudes (and it is usually dudes I see speaking out of their arses about this), you’re about to make an argument against abortion, just stand back for a minute and consider that women* are people. Like, you’re in a conversation about something to do with reproduction (maybe eugenics!) and you’re about to make what you think is some really clever point...

Made out with Aaron Paul in my dream last night.
Does anyone know anything about rucksacks?
Going to replace my old one, an Osprey Atmos 50L in Large (which you are welcome to buy!), because, frankly, it doesn’t fit, and the guy in the store is an arsehole for convincing me - novice that I was - that it was right. I’m 4’11”, and I approximate my hip-size at about 27/28”, so I am looking for a REALLY SMALL rucksack, between 36 and 42 litres. I know Osprey do...

I’m a buff tootin’ baby I can dance like a man, I can shake-ah my fanny I can shake-ah my can! I’m a tough tootin’ baby, I can punch-a yo buns! Punch-a yo buns, I can punch-all yo buns! If you’re an evil witch, I will punch you for fun!
unapologetix: reverse sexism is still sexism reverse racism is still racism being sexist against men and racist against white people is contributing to the same ideas of oppression that oppress the oppressed and those without privilege.and nothing will ever get better for anyone if it continues. Flatly disagree. For one thing, ‘reverse’ implies that that’s not the way...
The Olympics and Social Cleansing
thegreatdamfino: ‘The story in each city remains almost identical. Once selected, a city expends vast amounts of public resource to begin a program of forced displacement, rental speculation, urban renewal projects, demolition of public housing and gentrification. In fact, if there is one thread that runs through almost every Olympic event it is that the poor of each Games subsidise their own...

Oh I'm so radical!
I’m a white dude wearing a mask of a white dude’s face, that I bought from a huge corporation run by white dudes! It represents my anarchic sensibilities! Julian Assange is my hero! I’m a radical; I’m all about fucking up the system! Don’t mess up our revolution with your trifling focuses on race or gender - YOU’RE NOT SEEING THE BIG (WHITE DUDE) PICTURE.

I've been watching too much Buffy.
I had a rude dream with Angel in. (And it was Angel, not David Boreanaz.) Then later I was on a train with Ryan Gosling. No action there though, just cross-carriage smiles. My subconscious may have to deal with terrifying nightmares every now and again, but sometimes ‘conscious me’ really loses out.

tipsforradicals: pinebark: Reporters today on KOMO and Slog and beyond have made the mistake of calling today’s targeted property destruction “violence.” There is an enormous moral distinction between smashing a bank window and smashing a person. Lumping the two under the umbrella of “violence” is linguistically lazy and politically irresponsible. It is worth noting that in the dramatic...
