I got drunk and wrote a song and I wrote down the lyrics and the chords but I knew I wouldn’t remember the melody once I sobered up so I recorded it and showed it to a friend who responded to to really well and I asked them if I should post it on tumblr and they said yes. So here ya go tumblr.

Also I wrote the chords first and they went in a circle pattern around the frets and I just went from there.

Dear Emma: pursue a music career holy shit.

been singing this so i’m reblogging it again.

You know, if I was a parent, it would be at this point that I’d rip the game from his hands, stash it in my backpack, and force him to enjoy history goddamnit. This vacation cost a lot and the game is only for the hotel and travel time.

imagine trying to force someone to think that stonehenge is fun

"look kid we’re a ridiculous distance from a bunch of broken rocks how could you possibly be bored this is totally an appropriate vacation spot for someone this age."

Ah, fuck. Shit like this always gets to me, the tired old technophobe spiel and maybe it’s because it’s so rampant in my field (I work in outdoor education), but it just starts feeling so goddamn derivative after a while, nouveau hipsters who think the world is ending because kids play too many video games.
But what we’re missing is that this kid’s parents bought him his SP and a copy of Leaf Green (the employee at the game store said it would be perfect for him) so that he would shut up on the plane ride over and not bother them in the hotel, imagining that as soon as they touched down the kid would put the thing down and appreciate all the castles and grass and cafes and operas and rocks and ~*~culture~*~, because that’s what culture and history are, right? A bunch of old rocks.
What they missed is this kid staying up way past his bedtime the night before their plane flew out on message boards and chat rooms trying to find out which is the best starter, finally settled on a Squirtle and named it Rocky, and right now while his parents are appreciating rocks he and Rocky have got to save the whole world from Team Rocket because he’s a hero and that’s what heroes do and he’s so invested in this story and this world, he thinks he might have found the place where Machops live, why should he care about a guide droning on about Romans and a bunch of old people taking pictures?But please, go ahead and take the Gameboy from him, break it in half and remind him that you spent A LOT on this vacation, and HOW DARE HE. You will FORCE him to ENJOY his GODDAMN VACATION because it’s REAL LIFE. Wonder why he’s so upset, you’re the one who spent money on the thing? All he invested in it was time and emotion, and those things are definitely less important than money, when you’re eight. Wonder why he’s so disconnected from education, when you’ve managed to turn it into a punishment, a deprivation, a source of misery? Go on and repeat the tired old technophobe line until you’re red in the face, share it on Facebook and reblog it on Tumblr and retweet it on Twitter: nobody but you knows how to live ~*~REAL LIFE~*~ because we’re so busy exploring imaginary worlds.
Kids don’t just need to be taught when to use devices, we as their parents and guardians also need to be taught why they use devices. If a kid is more invested in Kanto than Stonehenge, why? How can we change our approach so kids ~*~appreciate real history~*~? And if not, can’t we just accept and appreciate that this kid will go back to the third grade, say “Yeah, I saw Stonehenge, it was neat, but who wants to trade a Haunter for my Machoke?”

I might be super late to this discovery, but I wanted to give everyone else a heads up just in case you haven’t heard

Whole Foods has a program called ‘try is before you buy it’. They do not advertise this program whatsoever. But all you do is pick up an item you want, and ask an employee if you can ‘try it before you buy it’. The idea is to get people trying new food, but you can ask for food you already know/eat as long as you mention the program/that phrase. They will pull out a green sticker, put it on the item, and give you that item for free. You take it to checkout, the cashier types in a special code, and it will come out as $0.00 on your receipt. 

I know Whole Foods is shitty and inaccessible to a lot of people, and even if you have physical access to a store, you might have trouble getting service (as it is, I had to ask my dad to get these for me while my mom and I went to another aisle). But if you can in any way manage to get there safely, consider this an option for times when you need food.

Some time between Sunday 6/22/14 5:45pm and Monday 6/23/14 2:00pm my car was stolen from my gated complex. It’s not a great car, but it’s MY car and I cannot afford to get another one! The police so far have been absolutely no help, so I’m turning to tumblr. If silly posts can get to a hundred thousand notes, please make this important one get there as well!

If you live in Sacramento, Citrus Heights, Foothill Farms, Roseville, or any surrounding area PLEASE be on the lookout for my car! It has several bumper stickers(one in each corner of the back window, and two on the bumper itself) that should make it easily identifiable, but also a large dent on the back passenger side door(no picture, I’m sorry!).

The car is a 1995 faded red Honda Accord Wagon. Licenses plate number is 6GWH415. If you spot my car, please contact the Sacramento highway patrol (916)861-1300

Imagine stabbing someone with this knife. 

It would instantly cauterize the would, so the person wouldn’t bleed, so it’s not very useful.

if you want information it is

and above, in order, we see a gryffindor, a ravenclaw, and a slytherin

why would you stab a PERSON when you can have TOAST?

There’s the hufflepuff
