Some might argue that they’re harmless, even cute, but there’s nothing cute...– The Guardian has an article about the D&G show. (via tesseralharmonics) D&G has responded in an indirect form at their website Swide, You might have seen them in some villa or restaurant or hotel in Sicily, dominating the table: colourful head-shaped ceramic vases filled with beautiful...
For example people who speak Spanish and people who speak English call Spanglish...– MISHTUN: We speak colonial fucking languages.
So saying “Salvadorean” is completely natural to the English brain’s sound...– MISHTUN: Salvadoran Stuff I agree with Mishtun, what a stupid and embarrassing source of “division” within a community. However by community I mean individuals to whom this matters in this vulgar manner (which at the moment luckily isn’t many.) Idiots.
Depending on your perspective, Hollywood is either a bastion of progressive,...– Andrew O’Hehir on The right’s pop-culture problem (via ericmortensen) This entire quote and the piece that accompanies it is obscene. I’m sorry that I don’t feel as if Eva Longoria and artists supported by the Famiglia de’ Medici belong in the same generalization, or that somehow...
I know I am ignoring Tim F.s’ sage advice to just ignore the whole Conor...– Yes, yes, yes, but Conor will probably pick up a bit of a cult following after this election cycle with a few more 10,000 word essays. I’ve never cared his work, will probably never care for it, and my eyes do this neat little trick whenever I read his name.* Conor’s trolling is A-game,...

le-kif-kif asked: what is an immortal cell line tho??
This line of research, says rheumatologist J. Lee Nelson, coauthor of the study, “suggests we need a new paradigm of the biological self” and how it is formed. We think of ourselves as the product of two biological parents and a one-time roll of the genetic dice. [LA Times] My only is response is no.

On April 19th, I made bread.– Graffiti from Pompeii I can relate to this!
All of the focus on Mitt Romney’s tan shifts the headlines away from President Obama’s awful forum responses especially when confronted with stuff like, JORGE RAMOS: “At the beginning of your government, you had control of both chambers of Congress, and yet you did not introduce immigration reform. And before I continue, I want for you to acknowledge that you did not keep your...
I used to be undecided about who I was going to vote for in November or even if I was going to vote at all but after watching Romney become Mexican, I can tell that he has my best interests on his face (if not his mind.) Who else feels this way? Who else was swayed? I believe in Amercia again, thanks Mitt!
Mitt Romney still calls DREAMers 'illegal aliens'... →
From robot-heart-politics. What’s hilarious about his use of ‘illegal alien’ is that he basically transformed into an Oompa-Loompa in a matter of hours. An Oompa-Loompa complaining about ‘illegal aliens’? I don’t know, seems hypocritical. Don’t forget where you came from Mitt, never forget LoompaLand.
If the Univision Forum was held in Arizona there would been a strong chance that Mitt Romney, or as he now likes to be called Yolotli Huitzilihuitl, would have been deported. This nation can’t do anything right.
We’re not going to round up people around the country and deport them. I believe...– Republican presidential candidate MITT ROMNEY. He really said this. At a candidates’ forum. Hosted by Univision.

We both have daughters and our wives are more popular than we are.– President Obama on Jay-Z, 9/18/2012 (via beatricebaudelaires) This Jay-Z and President Obama friendship is too perfect, not going to lie about it.
escranesque asked: i really like your new avatar the resemblance is uncanny
Wow, contemporary evangelical scientific atheists were so offended by my use of contemporary evangelical scientific atheist that they accused me of being a “creationist” and a “religious person” that “spouts utter nonsense” and in the process behaved as one would expect from a contemporary evangelical scientific atheist. I’m none of those things. Awesome.
