I’m going to try saying some crazy things to you, and you listen crazily—how about it? - Zuangzi
“ Paul Ryan is the embodiment of the machine our music rages against. ”
Even though she grew up playing football, shooting hoops and running races against all the boys in her neighborhood, U.S. 800-meter champion Alysia Montano never wanted to be thought of as one of them.
As a result, she started wearing a flower behind her right ear to remind the boys they were getting beat by a girl.
“The flower to me means strength with femininity. I think that a lot of people say things like you run like a girl. That doesn’t mean you have to run soft or you have to run dainty. It means that you’re strong.”
apparently people are hating on this song. I’m not much of one for celebrity, but I’ma sucker for race/gender controversy so I check it out. I know, I’m sick.
thoughts while watching it?
1) damn that girl looks like her daddy
2) this song embodies everything good about being eleven
“ You will be stupid. You will worry your parents. You will question your own choices, your relationships, your jobs, your friends, where you live, what you studied in college, that you went to college at all… If that happens, you’re doing it right. ”
yeah, I kind of hate Perks, but that is entirely true. I’ll put up with a million angsty teens posting it as long as they remember it when they’re a little older and wiser.
From the book The Perks of Being a Wallflower and often used on facebook statuses of teenage girls getting over their first boy experience. But when one meditates on this phrase, a whole lot of emotions might come to the surface.
And that’s what happened tonight.
Can you say why America is the greatest country in the world?
oh god i needed that today.
stop what you’re doing and watch

I wonder if Disney knows they had young girls perfectly content to grow up and become a man due to this song
ancient typo! I love stuff like this. Humans are humans are humans are humans.
Ancient typo. Supposed to be ‘KARTHAGE’ but seems the stone carver got it wrong the first time around with ‘IARTHAGE.’ Check npr.org on Monday (6/4) for the start of a new series: ‘From Carthage to Cairo.’ (John Poole / NPR) (Taken with Instagram at Tunis, Tunisia)
