Disney, Family, and Girls: Megan Greenwell @megreenwell after seeing 'get out' in a very white crowd, all of us cheering wildly for chris, i keep remembering this, from elif batuman's 'the idiot. recognize it and laugh. I found myself remembering the day in kindergarten whe the teachers showed us Dumbo: a Disney movie about a puny, weind looking circus elephant that everyone made fun of. As the story u- folded, I realized to my amazement that all the kids in the class, even the bullies, the ones who despised and tormented the weak and the ugly, were rooting against Dumbo's tormentors. Over and over thry laughed and cheered, both when Dumbo succeeded and when biu things happened to the bullies. But they're you, I thought to myel. How did they not know? They didn't know. It was astounding, im astounding truth. Everyone thougbt they were Dumbo. Again and again I saw the phenomenon repeated.

So when mom asked me afterwards if I liked it I gave a tepid non-answer. But then my mom started talking about how she loved the movie! And it slowly dawned on me that she also saw mother gothel as evil and abusive, but somehow didn’t make the connection that she and her were the same. My mom even made a comment to the effect of how, like rapunzel’s real mom, her love for me would always triumph or whatever. And she didn’t get it! She didn’t see the similarities of how she locked me away in the house, or how she kept me under the tightest supervision under the guise of keeping me safe. I spent the entire mother knows best song stealing glances at her next to me in the theater just waiting for her to drag us out of the movie because she couldn’t stand to have her “love” portrayed as evil. And she didn’t see how the fact that she created her identity completely around being a mother and nothing else was like mother gothel’s dependency on rapunzel’s magic hair. It was only after seeing her positive reaction to the movie, that I really understood the meaning of the phrase “everyone is the hero of their own story”. No one actually thinks they’re the villain, even if confronted with a painfully obvious rendering of their own actions done by someone they agree is rightly portrayed as evil. “everyone is the hero of their own story”.

Confused, Thank You, and Hunting: a-fragile-sort-of-anarchy Here is my official plan to change the world as we know it: I become a paramedic. If l encounter patients who cannot be saved, just as they're about to die, I'll look them dead (haha) in the eyes and slap 'em real hard If ghosts are real, this will cause dozens of them to be personally upset with me. I mean, at the very least, they'll want answers. I'll be the most haunted person ever. This means I'll have dozens of opportunities to record paranormal phenomenon. I'll get my own show on the Travel Channel called GHOST SLAPPER, through which I'll eventually get irrefutable scientific evidence that ghosts exist, making me the wealthiest and most respected paranormal researcher of all time. . On my death bed, one of my interns will slap me real hard, to make sure I come back all pissed off and confused .I will be the first ghost to host a ghost hunting show (which is mega cool, come on, admit it) Eventually, the secret goes global, and everyone starts slapping their loved ones real hard as they die, because they believe it's the best way for their spirit to remain here on Earth with them . After enough time, death slaps become commonplace. People have DNS (do not slap) instructions in their wills instead of or along with DNR (do not resuscitate) ones. HOWEVER, because everyone expects the death slaps, they no longer have the desired effect. Getting slapped is just a natural part of dying, now, but it accomplishes nothing .Like with all cultural junk, the origin eventually slips away, and the knowledge of WHY we slap the dying is esoteric at best. .1, however, remember, and haunt hospitals for centuries, laughing because everybody's gettin' slapped. Thank you for your time spiritualwarriorofdestruction What the fuck man a-fragile-sort-of-anarchy Excuse me, do you have a better idea? The ghost slapper

So for those that don’t get it they’re being clearly racist and anti semitic in their depiction of the people that didn’t like Hydra!Cap. mod m You remember Nick Spencer, right?   Anyway this is his incredibly mature and measured response to his critics. Imagine being this terrible.  Note - this is from Marvel’s Not Brand Ecch! #14 out November 15th Friendly reminder that Marvel blamed fans, and later retailers, for their poor sales. Friendly reminder that Marvel blamed diversity for their poor sales. Friendly reminder that Marvel created the milkshake controversy after being rightly accused of not having as diverse a creative team as they claimed. Friendly reminder that Marvel tried to partner with Northrupp Grumman, the fifth largest weapons manufacturer in the United States, and nearly released a piece of propaganda to children on behalf of said weapons manufacturer. And they only cancelled it due to the massive backlash they received. Friendly reminder that Marvel’s X-Men Gold artist tried to hide an antisemitic message in his art and it somehow made it past the editors. Friendly reminder that Marvel has been publishing poorly written and poorly drawn comics that people aren’t buying for said reasons.

Baked, Dad, and Fail: theguilteaparty So my mom told me a story. Growing up, my mom and her siblings would make banana bread every week. Literally every week since the first one of them learned how to make it, they started making banana bread- lo and behold though, they liked it with walnuts and they all knew their dad hated walnuts. So they made a special loaf of banana bread just for him every week, just for him to eat. Nobody else was allowed to eat it because that was his banana bread, baked especially for him So anyways, they did this once a week from middle school up until every last one of them moved out of the house (and considering there was at least 10 years difference from the oldest to the youngest, this was quite some time). So that's like... 16 years of weekly banana bread. And he always finished it. He, without fail, ate the whole loaf of bread by himself. That's approximately 835 loaves of banana bread Now Skip ahead a few years... and they're all visiting and baking banana bread and they start making a dad's bread and their mom comes in, "I don't think he can handle eating one more slice of banana bread!" "What are you talking about? He loves banana bread! He had it all the time!" This is when my grandma, their mom, broke the news that my grandfather loathed banana bread with every fiber of his being. He just adored that his kids loved him enough to make him a special loaf of banana bread every week (and he didn't have the heart to tell them that he couldn't stand banana bread) and he was incredibly, utterly upset that my grandma told the kids his big secret. My grandfather was a loving, patient, gentle man who absolutely hated banana bread but loved his kids so much more and I just wanted to share that with you guys. I think this story is just about the perfect example of the kind of person he was. theguilteaparty I just told my mom this had 1000 notes on it and let me tell you what She had two responses. 1. Tell them about the mac n cheese 2. Tell me when it hits a million mOM asunsetdream WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE MAC N CHEESE Banana bread

Candy, Elf, and Facebook: oo0 Verizon LTE 12:49 PM Search Starbucks 3 hrs . Hey Starbucks, as the unicorn frappuccino was so popular, thought I'd pitch a few suggestions for fraps based on other mythical creatures: Dragon frappuccino: Made with dragonfruit, cinnamon, and fiery hot chiles. A shameless ploy to acquire gold. Werewolf frappuccino: Seems like a normal chocolate frap (werewolves love chocolate) but the caffeine doesn't kick in until the next full moon. And boy howdy, does it kick in. Mermaid frappuccino: Extra foam and sea salt caramel drizzle. Comes with a free Danish in honor of Hans Christian Anderson. Centaur: Has an oatmeal raisin cookie crumble crust. Oats for the horse and raisins for the wine-lovina human Whinned cream is Write a comment.. Post o Verizon LTE 12:49 PM Q Searclh Fairy frappuccino: A delightful delicate flavor of honeysuckle and lavender, it has the unfortunate effect of making you fall in love with the next live creature that you see. Pixie frappuccino: MIXED WITH TGE POWDER OF WITH 15 PIXIE STICKS Elf frappuccino: Made with the most important food groups- candy, candy canes, candy corn, and syrup. Keebler cookie crumbles Hobbit frappuccino: Only served in size tall. Get one for breakfast and get a second one free! Ogre frappuccino: Looks green and putrid on the outside, but has layers of different flavors that will Smash your Mouth Zombie frappuccino: like a normal frap, but with SEVERAL extra shots of espresso Write a comment... Post ooo Verizon LTE 12:49 PM Q Searclh Wizard frappuccino: Butterbeer Witch frappuccino: You'd think it would be the same as the wizard frap, but it has eye of newt and toe of frog #everydaysexism Yeti frappuccino: Tastes like a lemon snow cone, with Himalayan pink salt Alien frappuccino: They actually do have this in the Starbucks at one government building in New Mexico, but it's on the secret menu Ghost frappuccino: Zero calories. Probably just blended ice. Poltergeist frappuccino: Hurls itself against the wall after you pay for it Vampire frappuccino: Blood. It's just blood. 2 Shares Write a comment...
