Republicans talking shit AGAIN. This @GOP tweet is the literal opposite of what they believe, campaign, and how they vote.
Actually, there’s a very crafty thing here to be used to our advantage:
Yes, historically, the GOP sucks at this vote. Nothing in this promise and their history can or should be trusted when it comes to equal pay
But if we started thinking it was true?
Granted, it probably isn’t. But there hasn’t been a vote on this April of 2013. There’s reason to believe that there’s going to be some wage discussion in congress here soon.
So, my young and social activists, what if we gave the GOP some friendly reminders about this tweet? All the time? So much so that failure to pass a bill of such nature would completely destroy any hopes of them grabbing offices and even the presidency?
Never forget this tweet and hold them up to their own standard as much as you can. GET EM.
I’m thinking about emailing a bunch of local high schools to see how willing they’d be for a freelance college student to take a shot directing one of their productions this year
Since that was one of my goals anyway and I see no reason why a change of city should deter me from that objective.
Now we’re talking! New music Tuesday yields an underrated and shining star of a folk album! Everything from the banjos to the drums to the vocals to the good ol’ fashioned lyrics lets you know that Goodnight, Texas is here to party like it’s 1849!

I’m pretty torn on Maroon 5’s 5th studio album “V”
In some ways, it’s a huge step up from they’re over-produced Overexposed album. There is some evidence of getting back to basics with some guitar hooks and REAL drums and a fairly impressive bass. Ya know, like a band should sound like.
But on that same level there is still A LOT of 2010’s pop stereotypes here. Which is tough for someone like me to hear. Songs About Jane and It Won’t Be Soon Before Long were such innovative pop records and introduced the world to this power-pop vocalist named Adam Levine who had a good knack for songwriting and at one point was probably on all of our “post-break-up” soundtracks. To use a cliche, it almost feels like Maroon 5 sold out going down the route of synthesized drum kits and overly sexualized tracks.
Now, granted, over sexualization and heavy synth is not a stranger art to Maroon 5. They started heading that way on a few tracks on their second album and drifted more that direction on Hands All Over. One big thing that their last two albums lacked that their first two albums had in abundance was lyrical depth. Levine’s songwriting started suffering around album 3 and seemed to crash and burn around album 4.
Which brings us here. There’s some evidence of getting back to basics, like I said, and the lyrics actually do take a very positive step forward on songs like “Unkiss Me” “Maps” and “Lost Stars” if you grab the deluxe version. And while they do use production sounds over the actual band for about 80% of the album, at least their producing has gotten much better. But it does still carry more of the “Adam Levine has gone solo” feel rather than a “Maroon 5 album” feel. Which is fine overall. Adam Levine’s vocals are still as stunning as ever and carries the album all on his own anyway.
It’s not quite what Maroon 5 used to be. It’s not a game changer. But it is their best stuff since It Won’t Be Soon and Maroon 5’s third best album.

one of the most adorable moments in the series
Beast boy and cyborg drop everything to make sure that Starfire is comfortable telling jokes. They don’t care that they missed the context, laugh along to make her comfortable, then proceed to make asses of themselves JUST so she can have a good laugh too and feel like she BELONGS.
And that is one of many examples of why the original teen titans series was seriously well fucking written as it showed a very HUMAN kind of emotion, feeling like you don’t fit in and watching a joke go wrong and people not finding you funny, then getting to laugh because the people you chose to open up to were caring enough to make fucking sure you felt like you belonged just for a bit.
