Disappointing Popsicle Jokes
Historically accurate Popsicle Jokes
What do you mean how did they get away with it?
History isn’t one straight line progressing towards a liberal society.
Look how much Americans attitudes have changed between 1980 and today. 1980 was the first time most very religious people voted, they abstained before that at the behest of their churches. Now they dictate policy at every election.
In my family photo album there are pictures from the 20s of a woman called ‘uncle bob’. She dressed in men’s clothing, and had a ‘companion’. This was a rough industrial town, they were working class, nobody cared. It was her business.
This is why politics is important - the moment you think everything is better today than it was in the past, you let other people take control of the direction society goes in - with you sitting back presuming we’re going forwards.
reblogging for the commentary
I went to college in Georgia. In a yearbook from the 1970’s that I found one day, there was a full-page, entirely positive, spread on the campus gay rights movement.
Some time after that, the Republican party forged its unholy alliance with the extreme religious right under the leadership of people like Jerry Falwell and Ralph Reed.
We performed The Laramie Project there in 2003, alongside a media project documenting the thoughts and feelings of both students and members of the general public about the show, and that campus was STILL on its long, hard way back to the levels of popular support for gay rights that it had been experiencing in the 70’s.
oh shit its a different bus
This is one of my favorite cecilos fan arts, how does it only have 25 notes O.o

Sometimes I wish I were a big name blogger.
I’m 99% positive this is why the Doctor doesn’t celebrate birthdays.
+A for that
Night Vale is really good for practicing character design, right? (I only wish I were better at it!) Like so many other fans, my own mental image of the characters is pretty constantly in flux. This is the Carlos I drew tonight, but tomorrow night, I’m certain he’ll look different. =)
I’ve been re-listening to the entire series, which has made me like Carlos a lot more as a character, rather than just as… a plot device? (Which was my initial impression until One Year Later.) He totally starts out like a reluctant action hero, ready to save the town and “figure out just what is going on around here.” But that pretty quickly fades away into general confusion and bad haircuts. And then, well, it’s no surprise that almost dying shifts his perspective on things. And now he’s so well-adjusted to life in Night Vale and he signs text messages with x’s and o’s and he uses gravity going out as a chance to clean the gutters and he thinks a dog is part of what makes a home and just! Man, no wonder Cecil fell in love instantly. Good call on that one, right?
But anyway, he’s also totally like 10, 15 years away from becoming Doc Brown at this point, right? Like, straight up mad scientist. After all, he’s a scientist who studies science. His hair is already graying. He thinks Erlenmeyer flasks represent perfection. He has a danger meter. That measures in fatality units. His perfect hair has to be a little bit more… science-y at this point, right?
am I sick from anxiety or am I actually physically ill? a memoir by me
