HOW DID I NOW JUST WATCH PACIFIC RIM?!?! That movie was awesome. But keep in mind this is from a boy who watched godzilla movies at a very young age and had godzilla and mothra toys that would always battle with x - wing toys. Also I just realized I had a very nerdy young childhood. And late childhood. And adolescence. And young adulthood right now.

Old south

Our ancestors stood against the tyranny of another dangerous narcissist in the White House. Their example should be our own.

If you mean throwing a hissy fit because the Northern States were anti-slavery, then ok.
tl;dr version:  The “tyranny” that the southern states felt was a federal government that was increasingly against the institution of owning people as property.

"Our new Government is founded upon exactly the opposite ideas; its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery, subordination to the superior race, is his natural and normal condition." —Alexander Stephens, Cornerstone Speech. Literally have to use this quote multiple times each week and any time someone uses "it’s heritage, not hate" to justify how they love the old stars and bars

If life were a person they’d have a stupid face. But like stupid where you’re like “I wanna kiss your stupid face, you stupid ugly face!” Like how you jokingly insult someone but it just feels so real and yet at the same time you really do love them and you can’t really insult them. Like life would be all smug but you absolutely love them.

But also wonderful.

Why does life have to be so weird and complicated and nuanced?

Literally just texted an old friend
” Oh and I miss our hipster days. Can we please just one weekend this summer time travel back with like you me and cher with bibles and sit on the beach listening to Bon Iver and Florence and the machine while reading Isaiah and talking about how life is going to pass us by quickly. Just like one night one reunion please oh gosh”
I am such a poser.
But I miss those days.
And I have terrible grammar when texting but I think you already know from my stupid stream of consciousness tumblr blogging.
