By far the stupidest criticism of the new Thor is ‘no where in Norse mythology is Thor a woman, stop messing with mythology.’

Right, because Norse mythology is just fucking filled with stories about Thor hanging out with Iron Man and Captain America at the Avengers Tower.

The Thor of Norse mythology was a ginger with a fiery red beard who traveled on a chariot pulled by fucking goats.

Fanboys complaining about Marvel Comics taking liberty with Norse mythology are like people that complain when a movie strays too far from the book: they don’t actually have as much familiarity with the source material as they pretend to have, they do not understand that appropriating story elements and characters for a different medium requires change, and in general they’re stupid and need to just shut the fuck up.

Abridged: fanboys complaining … need to just shut the fuck up.

Little Richard p erforming and talking to Dick Cavett.

LITTLE RICHARD.

and DICK CAVETT.

Doesn’t get better than this.

Go watch The Punk Singer

A great and inspiring movie about a woman that was speaking the language of Tumblr 20 years ago. It’s difficult to think of things that happened in my lifetime as being historic, but Kathleen Hanna and Bikini Kill and the riot grrrl movement are exactly that. It’s an inspiring movie that made me sad because I wasn’t listening or paying attention to these things as they were happening.

I second the recommendation. Great, great doc.

Little Richard being completely serious (x)

He used to do this at every awards show. I thought it was funny when I was a child. I know what he was doing now.

I love that whoever won doesn’t matter in this gifset.

For whatever it’s worth: it was Jody Watley, who obviously wrote her own (or had her people write her) Wikipedia entry

This is stupid, revisionist bullshit. Stop sharing it on Facebook.

ON THE FIRST ONE: The Monkees (though still great goddamn songs). Herman’s Hermits. Nancy Sinatra. Ricky Nelson. The Trashmen. That’s just off the top of my head and just the 1960s. We get into the 1970s and forget about it (Disco Duck). This whole idea that MTV ruined music by introducing the concept of image trumping artistic merit is SUCH. UNBRIDLED. BULLSHIT. There was nothing to ruin! There was never NEVER NEVER NEVER a period in pop music that did not see mediocrity rise above all else. I mean Jesus Christ, all forms of art. How many times do you talk about how great artists (i.e. Van Gogh) are never properly recognized in their time? By you I mean the person who shared this, you reckless buffoon.

ON TOM PETTY: In addition to the bands I mentioned before: The Partridge Family. The Archies. Sonny and Cher. The comments in the original post mention ”Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts” and other similar programs of its era. 

And who the fuck is Tom Petty to get snarky? I’d call him the poor man’s Bruce Springsteen, except that’s Bob Seger and at least Bob Seger takes off his fucking sunglasses indoors for an interview. Look, Tom, I know you think you’re above it all because you were in the Traveling Wilburys, but you should know that those albums fucking sucked for the most part. More importantly, you did not absorb Bob Dylan’s talent or Roy Orbison’s mystique and charisma by osmosis. Mostly you just croaked a few lines and sucked the cool out of the room.

Besides, your big artistic reach was scoring one of Edward Burns’ movies that’s about a guy who’s just such a good guy and ain’t he a good guy? Go get fucked, stop throwing shade, and take yours off if you want anyone to take you seriously.

All joking aside, someone needs to tell the baby boomers their generation of culture sucked and they’re all a bunch of under-achieving posers.

Have to get a minor procedure done on my left eye.

So today I take time off in the afternoon, did the ninety minute commute back from work, gotto the eye place and the specialist there couldn’t do the procedure that needs to be done because he doesn’t have the stuff to do it (he’s only there one day a week - Tuesdays).

THEN - he tells me he WOULD have the stuff to do it, but his bag that used to have it broke and he didn’t re-stock it. So this guy’s telling me he didn’t bring what he was supposed to bring. But THEN he says “we need advance notice for this type of procedure.” But I already had a consultation a week before!

Needless to say, I was kind of a dick and said I absolutely would not be sacrificing more of my work days on the off-chance he brought his shit with him.

I was enough of a dick that he was able to find me someone else to do it, but now I have to go all the way to Brooklyn to go see the other specialist he works with to get this done on a Sunday.

I’m tempted to just cut my eye open my goddamn self. 

"10 years later, he has accomplished so much on and off the field. What does David mean to you, and what is your favorite Wright moment?”
Oh, brother…

A friend and I were having a discussion about sitting last night. The conversation was about as electric and lucid as it sounds.
The topic came up because apparently, Indian style is now known as “criss-cross apple sauce,” in order to show a bit more sensitivity to Native Americans. The apples can get fucked.
I thought it was interesting because as a child I had always assumed “Indian style” referred to Native Americans, but as I got older I was either told, read, or assumed that “Indian style” didn’t refer to indigenous peoples but, rather, India itself. After all, it IS the Lotus pose.
My friend, Maeve, thought she’d try to look it up. We never did get a solid answer, because we stumbled on the realization that there is a goddamn wikipedia article for “sitting.” That may not surprise some of you fucks that post GIFs of “Supernatural” in-between reblogging trite platitudes that aren’t applicable to people that aren’t born with an inherent advantage in life, but we were floored by it. Especially the pictures they used, all of which seemed like someone created this article because they were doing a google image of people sitting for a Powerpoint Presentation and thought “I should take this one step further.”
Anyway, I decided to make up a fake history of sitting. Maybe one day I’ll make an entire book out of it. We’ll see.

Dinesh D’Souza’s ‘America’ Slams Google Again Over Missing Search Results

Dinesh D’Souza, the guy too stupid to come up with a name for one of his dull, meandering shit-fests that isn’t completely pedantic, is suing Google because he can’t wrap his head around the fact that giving a film a generic name is a bad idea in the age of search engines that require something unique to distinguish something from other, similarly named projects.

What a fucking buffoon.
