Whoa. The MLA has officially devised a standard format to cite tweets in an academic paper. Sign of the times.

Animation isn’t really my strong suit, but I’ve been thinking about something like this for quite a while. Style taken mostly from Disney’s Hercules ((what else would be more appropriate)) with some elements from the wonderful horror that is Hercules and Xena – The Animated Movie: The Battle for Mount Olympus
I’ll probably draw Gabrielle like this at some point soon maybe ((EDIT: Here it is!))
but like, could you imagine

new aesthetic: surreal pop punk

your shorts are glowing and are made of a material not known to this world. your vans die and regenerate every night. every band does covers of gregorian chants. your bangs extend into infinity.

fall out void

Abandon your mortal form and ascend to a higher plane! at the disco

When MLK said “I they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character" he was saying that ‘I hope one day that i can walk down the street without being stereotyped and killed’

Why would he be talking about white people.

In what world would be trying to fight for “white rights” or for white people to be treated ‘equally’ when they already had a majority of the power, what fucking sense does that make.

So Canada is basically tossing their protection of Humpback Whales in the garbage in order to enable them to put an oil pipeline right through critical habitat territory.

Just in case, y’know, anyone wants to stop talking about moose and maple syrup for a second.

Here, have a petition.

“Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”Shut up already.

The ALS Association has a 4-star rating from Charity Watchdog. 
And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection. 

Also, people making this criticism have clearly not gone to the website to donate or done the research themselves, because when you donate there is a box to check for you to make sure your donation goes solely to research if that’s what you want it to do.

^Now that’s a cool feature!
But the thing is, a lot of nonprofit funding comes from corporate and government grants that are often specified for being spent in a certain way—usually on programs, research, etc.
Which means the only money that is ‘free’ enough to be used on administrative expenses (and we may all agree CEOs make too much, even at nonprofits, but perhaps we can acknowledge the people keeping the website running and connecting researchers and fundraisers deserve a living wage. Plus that internet connection and printer paper thing. Maybe an office. With air conditioning if it’s in a warm climate like Washington D.C.) often comes from individual donations. 
I mean, if you think you’re single-handedly buying a cure with your donation to a charity, yeah, it sucks to find out you probably just bought the headquarters paperclips for a year.
On the other hand, believe me, it really sucks to not be able to afford paperclips. Having paperclips to put together the report that enables you to win a big grant that’s specified towards outreach or research does make a difference!
