I’m in my 20s, and I still have trouble getting past the fact that sex generally involves body parts that are like. Waste disposal. Stick it where you poop. Put that thing that you pee from inside them. Yeah. Props to vaginal-on-vaginal, although the urethra is still like. All up in there.
i’m so backing this
OH MY GOD
“i’m working on composing some darker stuff for ukelele” something i actually overheard today
After Brown v. Board of Education, many segregationists cited their own faith as justification for official racism. Ross Barnett won Mississippi’s governorship in a landslide in 1960 after claiming that “the good Lord was the original segregationist.”
I’m not sure who I love more, him or his sister. They’re polar opposites and it’s BEAUTIFUL
Yeah, but like. Have you his sister?
SHUT THE FRONT DOOR
IS THAT BLOND WOMAN IN THE CREDITS WHO WE HAVEN’T MET YET HIS SISTER???

OMG I’M SO EXCITED
All of the Armstrong siblings are glorious. You can see it in the character designs:
they saved her life
LET IT GOES

TURNS AWAY AND FUCKS THEM HOES
From freaky zombies to seeing Sith vs. Sith to learning about Obi-Wan’s love life, we look at the 10 best episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
As thrilled as it makes me that IGN is getting in on the fun (because HECK YEAH HYPE), I do NOT understand where they got this top 10 episodes list. Rookies, yes. Plan of Dissent, sure. The Wrong Jedi, absolutely. Brain Invaders is pushing it. But really, Voyage of Temptation? Are you for real??!?! And nothing from Ryloth? NOTHING FROM MORTIS??? What the heck IGN I thought I trusted you
What the hell is Massacre doing on there? And Grievous Intrigue? Like, they’re not BAD, far from it, but like you said: nothing from Ryloth? Nothing from MORTIS?!
Honestly, if you notice, their top 5 are all justified as “but look, these fights are AMAZING!!!!!!1111”, so. Yeah. List confirmed for WTF-ery.
Yeah! This is a thing I see a lot in media with Jewish characters. I feel partially it’s that the characters tend to be culturally Jewish but maybe not necessarily observant, or they’re observant in a way that isn’t as directly visible as having, say, a frum character who wears a kippah and brings his own lunches instead of buying food in the precinct cafeteria. So we’ll get a reference to a bar mitzvah, but not a reference to the tallit someone got from their father there. It’s also a lot easier for writers to just use the cultural shorthand in place (wry jokes about circumcision, Jewish mothers, bagels) than to dig for something else, which would require work and might very well confuse viewers.
I don’t think I’ve seen much Jewish religious observance in fiction apart from the occasional ‘Chanuka special’ thing, where, e.g., Marvel will get someone to draw a standalone picture of all their Jewish characters lighting a chanukiah as a parallel to the Christmas-tree-decorating illustrations. I believe that in Babylon 5 one character says the mourner’s Kaddish for her father, but apart from that most of the examples that come to mind are from fiction written by and for a Jewish audience.
It’s tough because there are plenty of real Jews who do the bar mitzvah joke bit but not the kippah bit, and all of the different kinds of us have a need to see ourselves reflected in fiction. I’m glad for every Jewish character, even the lazily written ones, even the well-written ones who don’t observe like I do, but I also wish there were more characters who did observe like me, you know?
