This song. I don’t even know which verse is my favorite.
"The days I’d sit and sieve
by the window
and I can taste the awful flavor
of nostalgia mixed with hurt.
And now my mouth, my mouth is dry;
I choke on logic and my tongue is tied
from reciting inspired-Bible verses
and bullshit lies.”
"And if everyone here is a child of God’s,
this world is a pityiess whore.
And He’s still playing favorites
and behind on his child support.”
"The noose that we wear doesn’t matter at all
unless we kick out our feet,
and perhaps our salvations
to know that we’re incomplete.”
So here’s the note, the note that counts
explaining why I wanted out.
It reads in small print,
"I’m much too tired to think anymore."
In life, there will always be decisions that we second guess, but that doesn’t mean we made the wrong choice. It just means that we are not so proud that we find it impossible to doubt our decisions every once in a while.

I knew I had seen this name somewhere! Now I feel like a treacherous, Irish pirate when I drink out of it.
We love the books, we think they are great so let’s make the [show] for the people who love the books. Let’s make it for the fans of the books first and trust that anyone who doesn’t know the material will get swept along in the story like everyone else does.

Nailed it. Nailed it nailed it nailed it in every way.
This is the most accurate thing I have ever heard.
I really really like this, even if it is a tiny bit “not like other girls”-ish, because I don’t think that’s the point it’s trying to make
I don’t think it’s “not like the other girls”-ish — I think it’s using “we” as a term of solidarity, not in a way that’s meant to alienate girls who aren’t like this. Because “this” isn’t something to glorify; I mean, in a way, it’s great that these girls (“we”) are doing so many things and accomplishing so much, but the point is that they’re doing it at the expense of their own health and well-being.
Meet the Mona Lisa of the Prado, the earliest known copy of Da Vinci’s best portrait. Similarity in the undersketch of the painting indicates that this was very likely painted concurrently with the original Mona Lisa, by a student of Da Vinci.
There is much controversy in the art world over the question of whether or not to clean the fragile Mona Lisa, but her sister has been restored and some fairly odd later alterations removed to show the original vibrant colors and lighting. Some details, such as the sheerness of her shawl and the pattern on the neckline of her dress, have become utterly obscured in the original, but in the restored copy they’re perfectly clear.
It blows my mind a little bit to look at these two sisters side-by-side and imagine how much vivid detail could be hiding in the Mona Lisa under 500 years of rotten varnish.
THE COPY HAS EYEBROWS
Your response to a beautiful piece of artwork done by Leonardo Da Vinci himself is “SHES GOT EYEBROWS”. Alright. All intelligent life has been lost.
Yo Snooty McSnotwhine, the Mona Lisa’s vanished eyebrows have been the subject of debate and analysis in the art expert community for hundreds of years, long before your parents squirted water at each other from across the clown car and then honked their bicycle horns to indicate they really wanted to make a smug, insufferable little clown baby together.
