I thought I was inured to Trump's bullshit, but this video actually makes me physically sick.

"I always wanted to get the Purple Heart. This was...much easier."

Oh, fuck you.

Vitamins are sort of like cats. If you have no cats, you'll be lonely. If you have a cat or two, you'll feel better. But that's enough cats. No one needs to load up on cats.

Yesss, an explanation for my internet-adjusted brain.

John Williams embedded quite a bit for foreshadowing into the Star Wars prequel music.

Here's an example. Listen to the Emperor's Theme from Return of the Jedi:

The final, triumphant ending song of The Phantom Menace is actually the same theme, but switched to a major chord and sung by children:

Or, less subtly, in Anakin's Theme, which at its end clearly incorporates the Imperial March:

This is an amazing post, and displays a thoughtfulness, strength, and humanity to Clinton that we just don't see on the campaign trail right now. I hope she finds I way to showcase it more often.
This is not a joke, Hillary Clinton actually wrote this for us. The one running for President.

I have a number of friends and colleagues who work in London and whose living situations and livelihoods have just been severely threatened by the Brexit. Which was the point I guess. It's a shitty point though. Good luck to everyone; I hope your employers can find a way to keep you in your adopted home.

As the Trump apocalypse becomes increasingly likely, this set of lines from Eminem's The Real Slim Shady keep running through my head:

I'm sick of you little girl and boy groups
All you do is annoy me
So I've been sent here to destroy you
And there's a million of us just like me
Who cuss like me,
Who just don't give a fuck like me,
Who dress like me
Walk, talk and act like me,
It just might be
The next best thing

ERB is one of my not-so-secret guilty pleasures. They're going to catch a lot of shit from idiots on the internet for this one, but the last verse is just delicious.

I've been laid up in bed with a fever the past few days and have spent my time watching the following. Let's see if you can guess the theme:

- The Civil War (Ken Burns miniseries)
- House of Cards (Season 1)
- Lincoln (2012)
- Pitch Perfect 2

Step 1: Redistribute funding from lower and middle class to the wealthy
Step 2: ???
Step 3: Economic growth!
The GOP’s economic program just decimated two American states. Why haven’t the Party’s presidential candidates been asked to account for that?

The school district I live in, what used to be one of the best in the country, isn't sure if they can operate next year.  Like, at all.
