The fact that the ALA shared this link is so gloriously bitter and angry and I love it.

Is there a portmanteau for that? Angritter? Bangry? 

My library card already gets me multiple “real” books, e-books, audiobooks, magazines and movies per month. For free.

Kindle Unlimited offers nothing from big presses, and no guarantee the authors will get paid fairly for their work. Libraries buy the book up front for a higher price (and a better binding). Kindle Unlimited offers the authors a variable percentage of a as-yet-undetermined-and-unannounced amount of money. 

While Amazon touts Kindle Unlimited at “Netflix For Books!” the reality is Netflix signed contracts with everyone whose work they offer so that actors, screen writers, best boys, and the rest of those people get paid for the shows and movies you watch. Amazon does not.

That means your favorite author isn’t being compensated for their time or work. If you love a book series and want to see the next one get published: buy the book or hit the library. Starving authors quit writing because they like eating. 

I couldn’t hit the reblog button fast enough.

So much reblog.

Bolded for reasons. Stop by your local library today and find out about all the FREE stuff you can get, physically and digitally. (oh, and also, we don’t track your purchases or store your history in our databases…if you like privacy - choose the library.

god bless gordan ramsey 

Dude is only a dick to adults, awesome.

because, those adults should know what they’re doing, they’re cooks these are kids hes teaching to cook, therefore he is patient. 

gordon ramsey is one of my favorite people in the whole world ok

The only reason he gets so angry is because the people he’s yelling at claim to know what they are doing and are charging people accordingly. If you listen to why he’s actually angry more than half the time you’d realize you’d be furious too. This man is beyond patient and kind toward people in normal circumstances, but he is really serious about his profession and what should be demanded of it. He’s one of my favorite people too

I love the commentary as much as the posts themselves.

THIS MAN HAS ALS, AND HIS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH. THEN IT’LL MAKE YOU CRY

The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water. 

So watch the full video here and laugh out loud at the first half and then get ready to tear up in the second half.

For white people wanting to know what they can do to help.

What would have once sounded like a “far-fetched feminist fantasy” – women forming the majority of a parliament – is a reality in Rwanda.

In fact, women are making gains throughout Africa, but these achievements have been met with a loud silence from the western feminist movement. 

African women are blazing a feminist trail - why don’t we hear their voices? (The Guardian) 

bc western feminists only want to take about africa when it makes us feel superior. when do you suppose the US will see a majority of political leadership being female? not in this lifetime.

The first time the Incredibles took over a post and I am so happy about it

reminder that stratogale was in high school when she got sucked into the airplane propeller and died

do you ever just think edna sat in the back of the funeral in the little hometown church
the sound of sniffling and crying surrounding her
wearing a floor-length black dress and a black veil to hide her puffy eyes as she takes out her sketchbook and starts ripping all her design ideas for costumes out
whispering “no capes. no capes. no capes.” over and over, knowing that it was her fault a high school student died a horrific, painful death to the point where they can’t have a body to bury

what does this have to do with loki

Brad you listen to me and you listen to me carefully you need to get the fuck out while you still can

  • Loki does not have sex with horses
  • Loki does not have sex with horses
  • Loki does not have sex with horses
  • LOKI DOES NOT HAVE SEX WITH HORSES

I usually just cringe and scroll past this every time it’s on my dash but my GOD I don’t care if anyone gets pissed that I “hijacked” this post or says that I need to lighten up and learn to take a joke. I don’t care. I DO NOT CARE. It just bothers me so much that people take this piece of his mythology and twist it into a joke. Loki was raped by the stallion Svadilfari. Plain and simple.

Long story short. A builder offered to build the wall that protects Asgard. His demand of payment was ridic (the goddess Freya, as well as the sun and moon). Of course the gods weren’t going to go along with that, so they had a big ol’ meeting. Loki made the suggestion to agree to those terms but only if he could complete the job in one season instead of three and with only the help of his horse, because really…it seemed highly impossible that the builder dude could do it. It was a group decision, everyone agreed on this. But! Surprise. Plan backfired. Giant builder dudes horse was like superhorse on steroids and ho-lee shit the gods had a problem now because it looked like he was gonna get it done afterall. So of course they do the logical thing and blamed it all on Loki and threatened to kill him unless he solved the problem (a plan that they ALL agreed on, remember). So he shifted into a mare to distract the stallion and lead him away so the builder wouldn’t get the wall finished on time but unfortunately that plan also backfired and the stallion caught up with Loki and I don’t think I need to detail the rest.

So moral of the story…please stop with the “omg hahaha loki does the do with horses so funny!” because it’s not. It’s not funny.

//THANK YOU
