"You practically do not use any semicolons at all. This is a symptom of mental defectiveness, probably induced by camp life."

"If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them."

"The trouble is that we have a bad habit, encouraged by pedants and sophisticates, of considering happiness as something rather stupid. Only pain is intellectual, only evil interesting. This is the treason of the artist: a refusal to admit the banality of evil and the terrible boredom of pain."

- Ursula K. Le Guin, “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas” (1973). (via psionotic)

…in the nerdiest, politest possible way.

Apparently the Smithsonian staffers are coping with the misery of living in a humid, tourist-mobbed swamp-pit in August by mocking each other’s collection items on the internet. And some of them have gotten their hands/paws on copies of Photoshop. The results are pretty amusing. This storify has the highlights. 

After a serious twitter conversation with the National Museum of American History and the National Portrait Gallery, WYWAAM is going to #votegeorge because 1) love that Gilbert Stuart painting,  2) GW is #3 on my “I’d Hit That” list, Presidential Category, and 3) this completely NSFW biopic by Brad Neeley. 

a day in the life, honestly.

Okay, so one of my coworkers sold me on this app called “Quiz Up” because trivia! It’s fun! There are art categories, even!

Friends, it turns out that I do not know anything. Not a single damn thing about anything, even in the art categories.

Except for Harry Potter and Sherlock. I’m pretty good at those. So, you know, there’s that well-rounded liberal arts education paying off in spades, right?
