John Scalzi gets it.

John Scalzi is my favorite human being

"Nip that crap in the bud, gentleman. You can do it."

Ever have that friend…

Ever have that friend of Facebook who keeps posting about how healthy and in shape they are or are getting and you’re eating Goldfish and drinking Kickstart?

HAPPY EARTH DAY!

I didn’t want to reblog this, but every time I try to scroll past this post, it’s like Groot is bending over looking at me like “Hi, hello, excuse me, this is my post and you should look at it. Where are you going?”

"I am Groot?"

I feel like Tumblr’s politics are just enabling people’s psychotic behaviors as opposed to telling them that they need to seek mental therapy.

Before we know it, there’s going to be murder apologists and people who think eating solid food is oppressive to people with dentures.

I wanted to do a brief lipsync test with Anny while I finalized the script so I used some video game voice acting for now.https://vimeo.com/92579662
I’m currently In the process of recruiting voice actors for the film. I can’t wait to get voice talent for Anny. :)

aaAAHHHH

Have you seen the new Captain Harlock Movie? If not, are you planning on doing so?

I plan to, though I’m being patient.

If you repeatedly criticize someone for liking something you don’t, they won’t stop liking it. They’ll stop liking you.

They do appreciate the important achievements of feminism in the past. Their problem is more the experiences they made with todays feminism, for example it's repressive stance against pornography, sex-work and certain "kinks" and how academic feminism turns non-issues into huge topics of political correctness. And I also assume that a lot of women don't appreciate being treated like uneducated sheep that need enlightment cuz they "just don't get it yet" and are oppressed without realizing it.

Ah, yes, the plight of the modern world, being wrapped up in labels and terminology. Neither side is wrong here; there’s some pretty outrageous stuff going on that needs to be fixed, but picking battles is always the problem of the activist mindset. The best thing for both sides is not to get in each others way, know what I mean?

1. Single moms are the problem. Only 9 percent of low-income, urban moms have been single throughout their child’s first five years. Thirty-five percent were married to, or in a relationship with, the child’s father for that entire time.

2. Absent dads are the problem. Sixty percent of low-income dads see at least one of their children daily. Another 16 percent see their children weekly.

3. Black dads are the problem. Among men who don’t live with their children, black fathers are more likely than white or Hispanic dads to have a daily presence in their kids’ lives.

4. Poor people are lazy. In 2004, there was at least one adult with a job in 60 percent of families on food stamps that had both kids and a nondisabled, working-age adult.

5. If you’re not officially poor, you’re doing okay. The federal poverty line for a family of two parents and two children in 2012 was $23,283. Basic needs cost at least twice that in 615 of America’s cities and regions.

6. Go to college, get out of poverty. In 2012, about 1.1 million people who made less than $25,000 a year, worked full time, and were heads of household had a bachelor’s degree.

7. We’re winning the war on poverty. The number of households with children living on less than $2 a day per person has grown 160 percent since 1996, to 1.65 million families in 2011.

8. The days of old ladies eating cat food are over. The share of elderly single women living in extreme poverty jumped 31 percent from 2011 to 2012.

9. The homeless are drunk street people. One in 45 kids in the United States experiences homelessness each year. In New York City alone, 22,000 children are homeless.

10. Handouts are bankrupting us. In 2012, total welfare funding was 0.47 percent of the federal budget.

Reblog a thousand times.

I have been poor. I have lived in serious poverty. 

I worked as hard then as I do now, and I work very hard indeed, as did almost everyone else I knew who was poor, regardless of background, ethnicity, or marriage status. 

We all know these things the wealthy and entitled say are lies…why do we allow that to continue to be the narrative?
