“I think [to stop cyberbullying] anonymity on the Internet has to go away,” she said during a panel discussion on social media hosted Tuesday evening by Marie Claire magazine. “People behave a lot better when they have their real names down. … I think people hide behind anonymity and they feel like they can say whatever they want behind closed doors.”—Facebook’s Randi Zuckerberg: Anonymity Online ‘Has To Go Away’
“Children that are more independent, that are able to be alone, those children are the ones that have had the most amount of affirmation and contact and co-sleeping when they were young.”—Catalyst: Sleeping with baby - ABC TV Science
“What it all really comes down to is the primary institution of love. The small percentage of people who are gay or lesbian were born, as all humans are, with the capacity to love and the need to be loved. These things, above everything, are what make life worth living. And unlike every other minority, almost all of us grew up among and part of the majority, in families where the highest form of that love was between our parents in marriage. To feel you will never know that, never feel that, is to experience a deep psychic wound that takes years to recover from. It is to become psychologically homeless. Which is why, I think, the concept of “coming out” is not quite right. It should really be called “coming home.”—
“I don’t write every day. I never have. But I do write most days, and I’ve filled thousands of pages of notebook paper with writing. I swear there’s no magic trick, no simple solution, no get-writerly-quick scheme. You have to write a lot of words. You have to write your heart out. And in the end, you discover that the writing’s what matters. Writing is its own reward. I promise.”—Advice for the parent(s) of burgeoning writers: How to Be a Writer
“The more serious problem is that too many of the movies themselves (even the good ones) are being made available in lousy prints: not just shabby public-domain versions (the equivalent of the old 16 mm local TV station prints that used to circulate through low-end nontheatrical distributors), but films shown in the wrong aspect ratio (beware of anything with the Starz logo on it) or even obsolete pan-and-scan (shame on you, Warner Bros.). What good is streaming delivery if you have to watch a digital mastering job that looks like it was done in 1986?”—About this whole Netflix pricing thing… - scanners
I’m including the Penn State (#2) image only because I cannot abide anything Gator (#10) on my Tumblr.
#10 UF oh HELL yes!
Typical Gator Growl Itinerary: Smoke a bunch of schwaggy weed and crank the hip-hop and Godsmack on your way to the Swamp. Get so drunk on grain punch that you pass out on the grass, somewhere between Dane Cook’s act and the Steve Miller Band. Have to be carried back to some stranger’s dorm room, where you wake up to cheers from the goateed strangers who brought you home and cracked eggs in your hair and drew cocks and balls on your forehead with dry-erase markers. Watch the fourth quarter.
#2 Penn State: FOCL - I cannot disagree
Overheard at Brunch on Saturday Morning: “What do you guys wanna do today: tailgate at the game, get shitfaced, eat some pizza, and break some windows, or tailgate at the game, get shitfaced, eat some pizza, and break some windows?” Most Likely to be Heard on a First Date: “Jesus, I can’t feel my face.”
Fans who looked to get their regular dose of Mother Monster on Youtube received a pretty harsh message today when they tried to catch a clip on the site: “This account has been suspended due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s Copyright Policy.” Yikes.
“Considering her obvious affection and respect for young adults and the importance of early intervention, it is unfortunate that JK Rowling neglected to squeeze even one lesson about sexual health into Harry Potter’s Hogwarts timetable.”—
How many of you guys and gals text while driving? I am bad at doing that. It’s very unsafe. Help remind me from time to time to stop texting, tweeting, or facebook while driving. Let’s help each other!
Thanks for the posts on helping my habit. Another question how many of you wake up in the morning and the first thing you grab is your cell phone. Shoot me $ if you are guilty. Has cell phones taken over our lives?
Thanks for the posts. I’m glad to see I’m not alone with my addiction. Today driving home from workouts, my phone was off and I singing songs all the way home. Haha and it felt good to not hear that phone make any noise. Really going to work on it.
