Neat moment at the Webbys last night. Fresh off the $1.1 billion sale of his company, David Karp was there with his mother, Barbara. Though I’d never met her before, Barbara came over to my seat and gave me the world’s biggest hug. She kept saying: “I am so, so proud of you.”
I said to David: “Your mom just made me feel like the most special guy in the world.”
He said: “That’s how she’s made me feel my whole life.”
Name: it's rather not important..yet.

That phoenix one. I want it. :|
So, these are all made by a company called Franz if you would like one. I’ve lusted after them for years but I don’t think they are cat proof.
So let me tell you about the shittiest parent on the motherfucking planet.
I work at a grocery store and this man comes in with his 11 year old son. He buys a pack a cigarettes and a two cases of beer. The son was holding a two dollar drawing pad and placed it on the belt and I guess the dad didn’t notice it at first but when I was about to scan the pad he asked where’d it have come from and turned towards the kid and asked “Did you put that shit up there?”. He told me to put it back and then told his 11 year old child that he “ain’t paying for that gay ass notebook.”. So I looked at the kid, who was close to tears and saying how he ran out of paper at home and my heart broke. So I gave the pad to him, for free, and told the dad I would take care of it. I gave the kid some tokens for a game outside and said I would look forward to buying some of his drawings and paintings when he’s all famous. He kids face was so priceless and I thought everything was good. But then, about 10 ten minutes after giving the kid his notebook, I walked outside and saw this. The drawing pad all ripped up and tossed on the pavement. I could only imagine what happened in the parking lot, but I know that that poor kid heart is fucking ripped apart, just like this pad.
I’m fucking horrified that there are parents like this, who, just because it’s not masculine or gender specificthey won’t let their children follow their true passions or explore interests that lead to their happiness. Even more so, I’m horrified that parents don’t care about the fine arts anymore because it doesn’t have job security. Since when did it ever matter to a child if their passion makes them money or not? Parenting is about supporting whatever makes your child happy. Have some fucking consideration for your child’s wants not your homophobic and anti-art ideals.
This really breaks my heart, as someone pursuing a career in the arts, it makes me sad and angry that some parents would rather their kids have some high-paying job that they’re completely miserable in, instead of letting them follow their own passions :(
I fucking need to get photoshop out of my hands

Westboro is planning to picket the funerals of those whose lives were taken by the explosions in Boston. Remember what the bikers did for the funerals of the children who attended Sandy Hook Elementary? Let’s do that again. Don’t let Westboro spread their hate and ignorance.
I just looked at their twitter. I feel sick.
*Ugh* why don’t we take Westboro “baptist” and put them in a hole?
Buildings have been evacuated and bridges have been shut down in Boston. These are precautionary measures. There have been no buildings bombed, no bridges bombed. Do not mistake reports of precautionary measures as reports of reactionary measures. It is very important in situations like these to be smart about information you are receiving, particularly on websites like Tumblr where anecdotal information from non-primary sources can spread very quickly.
how the fuck…..
i reblogged this while watching it
