Once Neil Gaiman hugged me for making him a friendship bracelet, and I've officially metamorphosed into a massive nerd. I have a Loki fixation and I refuse to be even remotely sorry about it. Films, acting, and crippling self-doubt are among my interests.

Okay, but holy shit, THIS IS UNREAL.

This is amazing, and that Pumpkin King makeup is a thing of unsettling beauty.

While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.

this makes me so fucking angry .

Will Darren Wilson ever be arrested?

we hated him.

"At $10 an hour you’d have to work 1,250 hours to cover the UW’s $12,500 tuition (more, once you take out taxes). In a 12-week summer, that’s more than 100 hours a week.

What really made me feel ancient is that the 1981 UW student guide shows the Med school charged only $1,029 a year back then. Today: $28,040!

Now, I didn’t go to the UW. But I’m going down Husky memory lane because last week The Seattle Times featured a crop of harried UW students looking rueful and broke. The story said skeptical state legislators often say how “they worked their way through college. And then they ask: Why don’t students do that today?”

Of all our delusions, we old farts cling to this bootstrap one the most. We worked our way up on sweat and chicken grease, we say. Can’t this generation? What’s wrong with them?

What’s wrong is that after we got ours, we cut it off for them.

The reason a summer at KFC could pay for a year of UW med school in 1981 isn’t that we were so hardworking and industrious. It’s that taxpayers back then picked up 90 percent of the tab. We weren’t Horatio Algers. We were socialists.

Today, the public picks up only 30 percent of UW tuition, and dropping."

I find myself wanting to draw a perfect Rose, over and over although I cannot find a Rose anywhere.
