In this gut-wrenching talk, Sergeant Andrew Chambers shares the haunting story of his time in Iraq and the tough transition home that landed him in jail. It’s a powerful testimony to the struggle our soldiers face when they come home, and the tragic ways that they can be denied the help they need.
For anyone looking to support a veteran, we encourage you to heed Chambers’s advice: "Find a veteran and listen to his story. A lot of us just need somebody to talk to."
Rory Williams is tired of Doctor’s bullshit and he will have none of it
1. Stop faking your fucking orgasms. Society already tells young men that they run the fucking universe - if they can’t turn your cunt into a shooting star then for god’s sake, let them know about it.
2. Once you’ve stopped faking your fucking orgasms, use this newfound honesty throughout the rest of your life - stop ordering coffee you don’t actually like; stop sitting at a desk and allowing people to treat you like shit in the hopes that a meek attitude will earn you a promotion (it won’t); stop telling people they can finish your food when you’re not actually done yet. These may seem petty, but they add up, just like every orgasm you didn’t actually get to have.
3. If you wanna dance all night, dance all fucking night. Dance all night even if you have work in the morning. The worst that will happen is you’ll drink RedBull all day and look like a zombie - pass it off as a head cold to the real zombies you work with and flick through the embarrassing photos you’re being tagged in as you pretend to take a shit for some peace and quiet. I promise, you’ll remember dancing all night in ten years, not the suspicious way your boss looked at you that morning.
4. If your ass looks big in that, that’s a good thing.
5. You will never be as young as you are this second. Embrace it.
6. Embrace the fact that you’re going to get older. Ask your boyfriend if he will still love you when you’re seventy and your tits are down to your knees. Look forward to this time - seventy year old women are allowed to do pretty much whatever they want, and no-one can stop them. You can carry candy in your bag and not share it with a single soul. You can stay home all day and cross-stitch expletives onto handkerchiefs for your grandchildren and slip them under the table out of sight of the people you raised. You can drink whisky at 10am. Every phase of your life is going to be amazing for different reasons. Embrace that.
7. A lot of people will pretend to love Bukowski. Don’t pretend to love Bukowski if you don’t love Bukowski. It’s overplayed and no-one will mind if you actually like Virginia Andrews instead - the people who do mind are boring.—

This is the first time I have ever looked forward to being older.
"I just want you to know there are worlds out there, safe in the sky, because of her. That there are people living in the light, and singing songs of Donna Noble, a thousand million light years away. They will never forget her… while she can never remember. And for one moment… one shining moment… she was the most important woman in the whole wide universe.”

i’m just saying, take as many selfies as you want.
there are multi-million dollar companies with old white men as ceos that profit off of your low self-esteem and self-hate.
“Ghostwriter,” the early-1990s PBS children’s show filmed in Fort Greene and Clinton Hill, is coming out on DVD next month – offering glimpses of local streetscapes from that era.
In the show, Jamal, Lenni, Alex, Gaby, Tina and Rob — Fort Greene kids who all see the same ghost – team up to solve mysteries with the aid of the unseen title character, who sends clues in words.
“We were looking for a neighborhood that was urban, multi-ethnic, but also had a bit of history to it,” recalled Liz Nealon, who worked as an executive producer for the show. “When we first scouted Fort Greene, I said, ‘This is it.’”
While the indoor action was filmed in a Manhattan studio, the “Ghostwriter” crew solved mysteries in Fort Greene Park, chased the THABTO gang around the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and spent afternoons in Jamal’s bedroom, on the top floor of a white Victorian house that seems at home on Vanderbilt or Clinton. Gaby and Alex lived behind their family’s bodega on a corner off of Lafayette. Local mainstay Spike Lee appeared in an episode.
The show looked like nothing else on PBS at the time: a live-action show featuring a multi-ethnic cast of teens in a real urban setting. The goal of “Ghostwriter,” which aired from 1992 to 1995, was to get children excited about reading, writing and solving mysteries.
The show was taken off the air before the kids had the chance to solve their biggest mystery — who was Ghostwriter, anyway?
Producer and writer Kermit Frazier revealed Ghostwriter’s true identity in a recent interview.
“Ghostwriter was a runaway slave during the Civil War,” he said. “He was killed by slave catchers and their dogs as he was teaching other runaway slaves how to read in the woods. His soul was kept in the book and released once Jamal discovered the book.”
How the book got into Jamal’s basement was never revealed, but the story fits in with Fort Greene’s history – the Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church was a stop on the Underground Railroad.
“We wanted the history, even though we never got to tell the story,” Ms. Nealon said. “Fort Greene was a place that Ghostwriter, when he was alive, would have stopped in.”
i am. speechless.
oh my god
god we need more shows set in the hood that are as dynamic, entertaining, educational, and uplifting as Ghostwriter was. the Ghostwriter team reminded me so much of the black, puerto rican, dominican, filipino, and white kids i grew up with in my neighborhood in jersey city. even the bodega reminded me of home. shit even the hacker julia stiles played with that wack ass nose ring reminded me of this girl in eighth grae who was obsessed with the sims lawd jesus…
No more excuses.
I will forever reblog this
It’s sort of horrifying that we all know what they’re talking about without them really saying it.. that it’s become that much of a norm in our society that we just know.
Edit: Commentary deleted for diverging from the point of the cartoon in an ill-explained and pointless fashion.
At the question parts of our tumblr we sometimes get “my significant other is doing this WHAT DOES IT MEAN?” and this is a pretty good response. Talk it out because everyone is different and there is no secret code, especially not one that is coded according to gender.
