New working theory: a good indicator of character is what someone believes they should apologize for; or, in other words, that for which they believe they should be forgiven. Recent experience has been almost mind-blowing in this arena. And, digressing…
What’s going on in Wisconsin is surreal. I mean look, maybe sending the cops after them was a bit much, but I mean come on ladies and gentlemen. Step up. Forgetting for a moment the amount of political power and cash potential carried by unions, the fact is your agenda is no longer the preferred one because your guy didn’t win. Take the lump and carry on. Leaving the state just smacks of cowardice — and frankly, I’ve had enough of the cowardice exemplified by the disappearing act, either literally or from a policy perspective. It would appear that many others have as well. At the very least, go out in the street and protest with your constituency. But then, that’s not really in the job description, is it? Neither, I’d wager, is cuttin’ and runnin’ when you don’t get your way. Sigh. Grow up. My favorite: teachers protesting in the streets that it’s all for the kids while the kids, meanwhile, are missing days of school while you holler about your rights. Way to be there for the kids. Also, never let it be said that I have an aversion to the other side. This is hilarious in it’s misapplication of who’s actually after the power (hint: it’s not Gov. Walker), but edifying nonetheless.
Now, fun stuff — in the middle of learning a great combo to the new Chris Brown/Busta Rhymes/Lil’ Wayne song (which I won’t post to save my Mom from the foul language).
Here recently, I was reminded that these girls exist and — Lord help me, even as I move further and further from High School and even college — I am somehow incapable of escaping. Anyway, weird vibes in passing notwithstanding, this was an interesting piece. Mean girls do grow up. So, yeah, um, do that already, wouldja?
Yay! Good to see the Japancakes make the cut (Hey Biellis!)
Also from Paste, evolution of those who seek devolution. Ironic, no? And they love it.
This is just cool. *Heart* choreography.
If you have loads of dough and are looking to buy me a birthday gift, I’ll take one of this guy’s paintings. Or, you know, a print…
Finally, again from Paste, which is apparently my favoritest place lately, an angry birds cake. Best dad ever (except for mine).
