africanbeats: greenactivista: Please substitue the word “children” for “99 percent of the idiots using the #peace tag on tumblr.” I always get too angry to articulate why images of malnourished African children bothers me.

ragnell: From the Ain’t It Cool writeup of KAPOW! (h/t): In a chat afterwards, Joe told me that he’d love to make a tentpole movie with a female lead, but that he really doesn’t think there is an actress right now who could carry it, or a character that would work either. I’m thinking I might agree… I’m going—somewhat cynically—to hazard a guess that it’s the latter. The ability to think...
Today, I asked a stranger for help figuring out how to change the height of a piece of equipment at the gym. I’ve never done that before—asked someone for help at the gym. Or even voluntarily had a conversation. Or made eye contact. I wouldn’t have done it a year ago, or even a month ago.
