This is my blog. It is about stuff that I like. Interesting stuff... Like anime and Ella Fitzgerald and show tunes and literature and chocolate cake and women. One day soon I'm gonna be a kick-ass novelist and patron of the arts.

talking to very republican teenagers is so surreal

you can just hear the directly quoted rhetoric in their voice, like

"my dad said this"

This isn’t helpful thinking at all. Liberal teenagers opinions are just as likely to be formed by parents or pop culture. College kids often cling to the rationale of their professors. Adults are swayed by pundits that treat politics as a sporting event.

Too many people get their opinions from someone else. However, we shouldn’t discount anyone’s opinion because it comes from somewhere else. Encourage people to boldly question their sources and their own assumption, and challenge your own assumptions.

Hope for the best. Hope that, regardless of someone’s opinion, they tried to reach it with critical thought, and challenge them to begin or continue critical thought.

A conservative and a progressive can be far more like-minded than we often assume. Critical thinkers often see the same problems but offer different solutions. Critical thinkers, not team players, will make the world a better place.

Pardon the rant…

theatre = art form

theater = location

if it has musical numbers = musical

if it does not = play

when in doubt, just call it a show

For a journalist working for a publication that uses AP Style it’s always theater unless the official spelling is theatre.

Super Golden Friends

I usually don’t reblog, but my boyfriend posted this and of course it’s awesome. I mean, it combines my Girls and his superheroes. What’s not to like?

They’re not sad men. They’re not glad men. They’re not bad men. They’re mad men.

A little behind the scenes look of the early stages of Green Lantern the Animated Series.

My eternal gratitude to everyone who helped prove the doubters wrong.

These kinds of chimeras aren’t possible yet, but in the meantime Redditor gyyp has created a few interesting combinations in Photoshop.

I wonder…

Stop it. Stop it right now. That’s not cool. At all.

my family usually eats bagged cereals (you know, the off brand kinds that taste like deceit) and today my mother came home with 15+ boxes of sugared name-brand cereal, dumped them into my arms, and said “i can’t eat lies anymore, caroline.”

WHY WAS I UNAWARE OF THE FACT THAT “DISGRUNTLED” IS, IN FACT, THE OPPOSITE OF “GRUNTLED”
