This is the best TV you've got?

Jennifer. 36. Cis female. Sexuality up in the air. Currently watching: the MCU, SYTYCD, Teen Wolf, Sleepy Hollow, Brooklyn 99, Agents of SHIELD. I reblog and post stuff related to lots of fandoms, though. Interested in literature, history, social justice, art, and the media. I'm a sucker for bad disaster movies, British panel shows, and Cajun food. If you ever want to help a starving artist, here's my Paypal:






I stopped by the Radio Shack where my brother’s working now to drop off some kettle corn I bought him at the harvest festival and I don’t know what I disliked most about the co-worker of his I left the kettle corn with: his condescending tone of voice when he responded to me saying I went to the corn maze for a little exercise with, “I go to the gym,” how I said my to-read pile was getting high and he said, “You should get a Kindle” (… do you seriously think anyone doesn’t have some kind of e-reader or app by now?), or when he responded to me mentioning one of my to-read books is one on transgender people my psych professor suggested as a source for my senior project by saying, “Oh, we had one of them in here yesterday. Wearing a skirt with a big bushy beard. I didn’t even know what to call it.”

Yes, I took a picture of the pumpkins. Because look at all the fucking pumpkins.
I feel like I should share that I was literally so happy to finish the corn maze for the first time ever that when I came out to find the punch clock in the exit tent was broken, I took a picture of the map next to it to PROVE I finished it and what time I finished it.

The Worst Book Giveaway Ever

Okay, so I finally got a chance to order a new copy of “The Circus Fire,” which is one of my favorite disaster books. The thing is that now I’ll have this old copy to give away and I’d like to, if only because it’s a very good book.

Here’s the thing — I’m not replacing the old copy because it’s…

sounds interesting, dibs?

All yours! Just shoot me a message with your snailmail and I’ll drop it off at the post office on Monday. :)

The Worst Book Giveaway Ever

Okay, so I finally got a chance to order a new copy of “The Circus Fire,” which is one of my favorite disaster books. The thing is that now I’ll have this old copy to give away and I’d like to, if only because it’s a very good book.

Here’s the thing — I’m not replacing the old copy because it’s worn down from age or reading it too many times (or the right amount, I suppose, given that if a book’s going to have to retire, I reckon that’s the right way to go). What happened is that one time I left it in my car as sort of my “emergency book” for when I finished another book and I needed another book to read until I got home and replaced it with a new book from my to-read pile. (You know, as you do.)

Anyway, sitting in my crappy car’s equally crappy trunk in the summer means it warped the pages, stained some of them a bit black with mildew, and cracked the hell out of the spine. All of the pages are perfectly readable, I swear, but I can pretty much guarantee that the book will fall apart as you read it. I wouldn’t even bother to attempt to sell it on Amazon because describing it realistically would make possible buyers laugh at me.

But still — free book! And a good one at that! 

So … yeah. The first one to respond saying they want it gets it. Fair warning — it is about a terrible tragedy in which about 160 people, mostly women and children, died a terrible death by fire, so every trigger you would expect to be in there is.

But even if you don’t jump on this copy first, you really should pick up a copy if you’re interested, because it’s really well-written and researched.

So my dad doesnt think that girls would watch a Deadpool movie. Please reblog this to help me prove a point.

This is the poster for Eric Matthew Frein, the man who ambushed a State Police station in northeast Pennsylvania last week and shot two officers, one of whom died. He made the FBI’s Top 10 Most Wanted list, and he’s still on the loose, probably hiding out pretty well considering he’s a survivalist-type individual.

I know there’s a lot of people on Tumblr right now who aren’t thrilled with cops in general right now, but Frein being on the loose also means he’s been terrorizing the area simply by being free. A few schools even closed for a day or two to avoid Frein deciding to try another bigger ambush. So, yeah, if you can, please signal boost this because you never know who might know something and there are a lot of people in this area who are really afraid of what he may try next.

People:

Aren't you going a bit overboard?

This is so disgusting omg

it really is.

fucking wow

This is so sad

yall making too much of a deal of this who cares 

Yeah sure, who cares. Who cares when people would rather line up like this every year to spend hundreds on a damn phone than give/donate even just a few dollars to a charity or help out those in need and struggling to sustain themselves. Spend hundreds to buy an iPhone or spend less than a hundred to change a life?

this just in: human brain incapable of caring about more than 1 thing in a lifetime, iphone owners will never spend money on anything other than a phone ever, buying products of own money because you want them makes one incapable of empathy or knowing about charity
in other news: tumblr users still pretentious shits on high horses who think that they’re better than everyone based on nothing but holier-than-thou assumptions

I wonder if the OP there are more people in slavery currently than there have been at any other time in history and I’m pretty sure none of them are in that line.
