A man in the grocery store line today approached me and said, “Sir, when I first saw you I was extremely attracted to you, but then I noticed that you are a boy. How… I mean, why do you dress so provocatively?”
I responded, “Well, in today’s world the majority of the straight male race view women as objects, or something that belongs to them. I dress provocatively because it attracts the attention of men in a sexual and OBJECTIVE way. However, when realized that I am actually male, they often become confused, disgusted, upset or all of the above. By inflicting this minor emotional damaged upon the ego of a man raised by twisted societal gender norms, maybe, just maybe the individual will think twice before viewing another woman with an objective attitude and sense of belonging. No woman, belongs to ANYONE. Male or female, the equality of human beings needs to be a priority. It is something worth dressing up for.”
I AM NOT KIDDING. The woman behind me, the female cashier, the old lady bagging groceries and the woman in front of me who was talking on the phone STOPPED, …. and proceeded to gasp and clap. The man shook my hand, told me to have a blessed day and then said, “excuse me ladies, I need to visit my daughter.”
…. I was shaking by the time I walked out of the store.

for ten years now, leonid tishkov has traveled the world with his moon. here we see him in arctic svalbard magdalene fjord (1,5,7), new zealand, near rangitito (second photo, taken by marcus williams), the tian shang observatory near the border between china and kyrgyzstan (third photo, by po-i chen) and moscow (4,6,8, taken by boris bendikov)
"the moon is a shining point that brings people together from different countries, of different nationalities and cultures - and everyone who gets in its orbit does not forget it ever. it gives fairytale and poetry in our prosy and mercantile world," leonid writes. "the moon helps us to overcome our loneliness in the universe by uniting us around it."
leonid adds, “the ancient ural peoples who lived in my home told a fairy tale about how a shaman goes into the next world, illuminating the path of the moon. so in all of my photos, i can be seen in my late father’s cloak, because he travels with me in this way.”

Wait is that chameleon GAVIN WITH THE NOSE?
Right so the story behind this pic is that at the Birmingham panic show, I was at the barrier and I asked Zack to please take a picture of the crowd behind me. (I’m like 4’11, A decent shot aint gonna happen) So he then says “Sure” then takes my camera and walks away. He was gone for a whole twenty minutes. He comes back and I ask if he took any pictures and he said No and walked away again.
I check my camera and low and behold a whole bunch of random pictures from a bottle of water to the inside of the tour buses and one of the pictures was this picture of the lovely Dallon weekes doing up his shoe laces :)
I know is looks shopped but I swear on all that is Fall Out Boy that its not. To this day, I’m still amazing at how zack got some decent shots off my shitty camera.
(This story also aplies to the Ian ironing his pants omg i hope he’s not wearing any picture crawford)
I like how this picture and story is still making the rounds 2 years later
Art dump part 4
okay story time
so my art teacher assigned us to do a chalk pastel still life of fruits n shit and I was like “no”
so I drew a banana instead.
and my teacher came by like “you need to have more than one fruit in your still life”
so I was like “k”
and so I put that cherry on top of the banana and titled it “Banana Split Without The Ice Cream Because Life Is Full Of Disappointments: By Fall Out Boy" and I turned that shit in.
My art teacher just started laughing out loud in the middle of class
Once in a while I’ll see a popular post talking about how the person loses interest in a youtube video after 30 seconds…meanwhile I’m sitting here in the Achievement Hunter fandom like
We don’t even get bored after a two hour video either we’re the chosen ones or everyone else’s YouTube watching game is weak
So I was reading up on Avengers trivia and apparently RDJ kept food hidden all over this set and they couldn’t find where it was so they just kinda let him continue doing it. So that’s his actual food he’s offering and whenever he’s eating in a scene, it’s not scripted. He was just hungry.
RDJ is a squirrel
I will never NOT reblog this
