Cwabs!


  1. So the GoFundMe assholes

    Soliciting for Shootee Bulletriddler have decided to stop their campaign, give the reward money to the killer, and start another campaign, only this time it’s tax-deductible.

    Seriously. GoFu**Yourself. GoFu**Me.

"I get it, I get it… what about a SIDE-hug, though??"
If you’re wondering by the way, I don’t really believe in the introvert/extrovert thing. Its just labels and as soon as you label yourself, you limit yourself :)
Just accept that we’re all complicated little snowflakes who have lots of little preferences when it comes to everything and have a good day, hooray!!

    If you don’t like racists, I wouldn’t move to France. Black politicians get bananas thrown at them and North African kids are harassed by white cops. Also, being a Jew, I’m not sure it’s even safe for me to visit France as a tourist right now.

    kate-e-k replied to your post: What’s a good other country to move to…

    France might not be a good choice if you’re trying to escape institutional racism, though. Maybe Canada?

    Huh, France is apparently a changed country from the one that once embraced Josephine Baker and Richard Wright.

what the fuck is this shit

release the penguins

I see two dinosaurs nuzzling each other.

EIGHT NOTE CHORDS? What instrument(s) is this for? An octopus??

Its called the Death Waltz, and was written as a joke but people have attempted it on piano.

Saxes move downstage.

I’ll just leave this here.

SWEET JESUS CLICK THAT

That was beautiful

Both this (clearly a joke) and the YouTube link are worthy of attention, but the musical pedant in me has to point out that NEITHER OF THEM ARE WALTZES. Waltzes are in 3/4 (or occasionally 6/8) time, like “The Blue Danube” or “The Tennessee Waltz” or “Send in The Clowns” or “The Star Spangled Banner.”

  5. What’s a good other country to move to? France? Canada? French Canada?

    The GoFundMe campaign for the cop who shot Michael Brown (whose legal fees mostly likely will be paid by the government) has raised over $200,000.

    The GoFundMe campaign for Michael Brown? Just over $150k.

    Feed the students of Ferguson? Also $150k

    I’m not saying that Pistol McGunsalot is a racist. I don’t know him.

    The people supporting him, on the other hand? Yeah. Fuckin’ racists. $200,000 of racists, some of whom can afford to drop $1,000 to support the idea of shooting unarmed black kids in the street.

    Other potential Officer Hairtrigger O’Dissappointmentinbeds who might actually be racists are gonna see nothing but encouragement by the outpouring of support.

The Pizza Belt is defined as “the area of the United States where the chance of obtaining an adequate-to-good slice of pizza from a randomly chosen pizzeria is greater than 50 percent.”

The Pizza Belt: the Most Important Pizza Theory You’ll Read

Based on this map, you’re more likely to find decent pizza in Long Island Sound than in, say, Oklahoma City. Learn how maps work, Gawker.

What an Introvert Sounds Like

Well, this is fascinating. If you follow through to the actual paper, the word clouds for “low conscientiousness” reads like the best rant ever.

Every time I see the “ice bucket challenge” mentioned:
As someone who’s had to take ice cold showers because I was worried I couldn’t afford the bill to pay for heated water, I want a fucking parade for how many “ice bucket challenges” I’ve unintentionally done in my lifetime.
Clean drinkable water is a dwindling resource. Let’s dump it over our heads!
I’m seeing military equipment being used on US soil against its people, people are literally dead in the streets with no repercussions for the police officers who did it, but watch a celebrity dump water on themselves! Ha ha ha! They can afford proper medical care so they don’t have to worry about whatever disease this horseshit is being done for.

Not for nothing, but my grandmother died of “whatever disease this horseshit is being done for” when I was six.
I’m told she used to read to me when I was a baby. I don’t remember that. I only remember that I couldn’t understand what she said to me because her speech consisted of moans (did you see Amour? Emmanuele Riva at the end). And I remember the feeding tubes. And I remember the visitation at the funeral home.
Later I learned that she had slowly become a completely cognizant mind sitting in a non-functioning shell of a body. I thought of how terrifying and claustrophobic that must be, and how heartbreaking to have a grandchild that you couldn’t hold, who could never understand you, whom you could never tell that you loved, because the disease had taken away your ability to communicate.
Don’t get me wrong. What’s happening in Ferguson (and elsewhere, every day) is terrible. But if you’re gonna rage, rage at people who aren’t trying to help others.
Rage at the war on drugs that sends military equipment to Andy and Barney police departments where they’re just souped-up toys that are itching to be used inappropriately.
Rage at the media who publicize the official police line, without confirming that it’s accurate and knowing full well that it’s irrelevant.
Rage at your neighbor who wants to turn the incident into a discussion of “looting” and “thugs.” Instead of systematized racial disparity and disenfranchisement.
Rage at the schools who failed to teach us our own history of civil unrest and oppression.
Then dump a bucket of ice water on your head, and donate to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the ACLU, and the ALS Association.
