In Deadbeat, Kevin Pacalioglu (Tyler Labine) makes a living by helping ghosts move on to the afterlife. After all, a boy’s best friend is his haunter. Reblog if you can name the movie this poster is based on, and watch Deadbeat only on Hulu April 9. 

No this was dumb

3 books by female authors

Books are great and reading is fun. And multitasking is unwise, but without it, I just don’t make time to read. This is why i’m an audiobook fiend. In the same way that I will read anything if I’m bored enough, I will listen to any book. This is how I read The DaVinci Code, Lady Chatterly’s Lover, and half a dozen other just god-awful books — they were the only audiobooks I could find to pirate when I couldn’t afford to buy audiobooks.

Now I have an Audible account, and every few months I go on a shopping spree. Today is that spree.

I just purchased Make Art Make Money by Elizabeth Hyde Stevens. It caught me with some words about jim Henson and how he didn’t sacrifice passion or creative control and built “a business that was worth $150 million at the time of his death”. Money isn’t my goal, but money is a useful means to many ends I have in mind — plus she invoked the name of Henson — so I’ll give this book a go. 

Make Art Make Money: Lessons from Jim Henson on Fueling Your Creative Career, $4.89 on Audible

I’m listening again to Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt. It’s my third time through the audiobook…and who knows how many times I’ve read the thing, as well. This has been one of my favorite books since I discovered in in 4th grade. 

Babbitt uses poetic prose to describe the adventure of Winnie Foster, an only child who dashes into her family’s wooded acres one day and falls in love with a family who’ve drunk from a fountain of youth. Its lovely words, feminist slant, themes of natural science, sexuality, and the fleeting lives of man hit me hard when I was 10 — and still move me. It’s a very adult book, though it’s a solid PG rating. 

Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt, $10.22 on Audible.

This week I’m also revisiting A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. Wow, another book that changed my life. Another book by a lady, about a lady. Another feminist book with a science-friendly slant. My first read of Wrinkle on a car trip to Iowa, I was impressed with myself, my ability to understand the dense sentences and scientific terms. The following books in the series did as much to spark my interest in science than any other influence. 

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle, $14.70 on Audible

I’m considering buying The Hunger Games as audiobooks — I’ve read them all, and reread, and now I want easy audio access. 

If you have book recs, I still have two Audible credits sitting in my account. I’m especially interested in female authors and young adult books right now.

I think that it is such a privilege to understand where we come from, a privilege for all of us born after 1859, that to deny children that privilege is wicked, it’s a deprivation that should not be visited on any child, when the truth is so staggeringly exciting. When we have shared ancestors with every living thing, we have a history of four billion years of slow, gradual evolution, that’s not something that we can easily take on board, but the effort of doing so is well worth it. It’s such a beautiful thought that we are the heirs of four billion years of evolution.

My piggy friend. She flopped down after another zoo visitor used a pen to scratch her back through the fence. Yes. She did want some scratches.

Seriously I know that boobs are beautiful and sexy and everything, but really, it’s just some organic jiggling baby feeders. No need to hide them or be ashamed or over-sexualize them. 

FREE TITIES.

reblog cuz this is funny

I shouldn’t have to tag this for NSFW, So I won’t.

Probably if more girls would do this, we could adapt more like not calling them sexual organs lol Remember that some guys are assholes too, so prepare to get yelled at or possibly touched :/ We should get rid of the problem (those guys) instead of forcing bras or bikinis….

I went to church with a lady that went to do missionary work in Africa (I think it was Africa.) and they had classes on how they needed to dress and stuff. And at one point she made a joke about wearing turtlenecks and the teacher said “Darlin, you could walk around topless for all the men are going to care.”

This woman is “stacked” “buxom”… she has big titties okay?

And she said “Really??”

And the teacher explained. “Breasts are for babies in most parts of the world. It’s only in America and a few other places that Breasts are seen as sexual. Breasts to men of the country we are going to are for babies and only for babies. Now… your ass on the other hand… you’re gonna need some long skirts with a high waist, cause they notice the booty.”

Mostly reblogging for that last story

I have a friend who is a Dominican monk and one of my favorite stories of his is about the woman in one of his classes who was a breast freedom activist. She came to class topless and he loved it — not because he got to see boobies. He just likes plucky people. But also maybe boobies.
