1. Gonna embroider this on a tea towel.
2. I tried to suggest a variation of CLEAR EYES FULL HEARTS CAN’T LOSE! to a group of grown men for the Beastenetics phrase. I’d like to amend my suggestion to this one, because that’s the only way, you know?
A bad bitch never hates on another bad bitch. If you see a bad bitch and you know you’re a bad bitch, why hate? Send her a Chanel bag.
Foxy Brown (via throwinshade)
Been thinking about this a lot this week. (Let’s just all be good to each other? And I hate that word.) Also thinking about it in relation to the Cool Girl. (I have so many opinions about that. And now! Now I have to read Gone Girl.)
Frequently caricatured and attacked by the New York press, his reputation as a friend of trusts made him an unpopular figure as the Populist movement gained strength in the state. Besides politics, his chief passion was gambling, particularly at the racetrack.

Post-Ravens away game win in 2011.
Because everyone else is doing it.
Not only do I hate that there’s a meme* I don’t know about, I’m finding myself unexpectedly sad that I’ve never taken a selfie at the Ottobar bathroom (because, I guess, I’ve never taken a selfie outside my own house). I hope Katie doesn’t mind being reblogged on my feed. Doesn’t she look bright, charming, kind, and intelligent?
(*OK probably not really)
When I have to edit a story down from 800 to 300 words.
Weird, I thought the “too many words” rule was to ignore the e-mail and publish nothing! (Gonna see what I can get out of this.)
“Cher’s “debate” says absolutely nothing about her position on immigration reform, but it says everything about how she sees the world and her place in it: Any problem can be solved by a little effort and a lot of blind optimism. (The title writer-director Amy Heckerling originally had for the project, when she pitched it as a TV show, was even more apt than Clueless in this regard: No Worries.) Cher’s tiny universe is one of privilege so ingrained, she can’t even process it, one where the act of simply desiring something is enough to make it manifest. There’s no obstacle in Cher’s world that can’t be overcome through sheer force of will; it’ll work because she says it’ll work. Bad grades? That can be negotiated. Can’t parallel park? Don’t worry, everywhere you go has valet. Not 5-foot-10 like Cindy Crawford? Don’t drink that sucky Italian roast, you’ll get there. Cher knows best, even when she doesn’t. She’s a bimbo Buddha, completely at peace with her interpretation of life.”
Our Movie Of The Week is Amy Heckerling’s 1995 teen-girl touchstone Clueless. Genevieve Koski kicks us off with a Keynote on how Cher Horowitz’s boundless confidence and optimism sell the movie’s low stakes. [Read more…]
Strongly disagree! Cher says a lot about immigration reform during this debate! She calls for full amnesty and higher tax rates to support universal health care and education. I mean, she’s pretty explicit about all these things.
At the risk of having to examine my own privilege (just not after 10 p.m. on a weeknight, please), I’ve always been annoyed that she didn’t win the debate!
And I lived with five girls, in two rooms, and ate soup out of cans.
Betty Draper, de-glamorizing her model years.
I love pointing out that a model’s life is not glamorous, but OH MY GOD BETTY, I DISAGREE.
