2310) I go through my submitted secrets and look at the likes and reblogs, and I send them anonymous love. Half because I want them to know they're not alone, half because I wish there weren't others like me.
“A number of you that are reading this might be thinking that we’d have to be crazy to think that our small team can actually re-invent television and compete effectively against a landscape of distribution giants like cable companies, satellite companies, and huge online companies. We are crazy. All entrepreneurs need to be. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it and there would be no naysayers. We are nothing if not a team that believes in the value of convictions, thoughtful stubbornness, and the relentless pursuit of better ways.”—Jason Kilar, Hulu CEO. Though it may have well been me.

Fabulous French film about a bank robber taken in by a local retired poetry teacher in a small town. A friendship ensues with each man getting a glimpse of the life that he would have liked to have had.
The Fabulous Beatmashers - TNT - Invasion Over Berlin (AC/DC vs Spencer & Hill vs Three 6 Mafia vs BEP vs Run DMC vs Ying Yang Twins)
Okay I’ve been back at this for about 5 minutes and I’m overwhelmed already. So much to listen to, so little time… that extra hour we were graciously given last week was not enough! Anyway, I hadn’t heard of these guys before and they seem pretty legit, one might say too legit, too legit to quit. Apparently they’re playing in Berlin this week so if you happen to be kickin’ around those parts you should probably check that out.
So we failed at providing you the latest and greatest from this sexy mofo (yes, I’m already regretting my choice of words there) because we fell off the face of the earth for some regrettable length of time but hopefully he doesn’t hate us too much and we’ll jump back on the exclusive DOSVEC bandwagon before I have the chance to whip up another run-on sentence.
($6.99) – Cinch gives you simple, mouse-driven window management by defining the left, right, and top edges of your screen as ‘hot zones’. Drag a window until the mouse cursor enters one of these zones then drop the window to have it cinch into place. Cinching to the left or right edges of the screen will resize the window to fill exactly half the screen, allowing you to easily compare two windows side-by-side (splitscreen). Cinching to the top edge of the screen will resize the window to fill the entire screen (fullscreen). Dragging a window away from its cinched position will restore the window to its original size.
SizeUp by the same developer is also pretty awesome but it is not on the mac app store yet.
“In the problem of women was the germ of a solution, not only for their oppression, but for everybody’s. The control of women in society was ingeniously effective. It was not done directly by the state. Instead the family was used—-men to control women, women to control children, all to be preoccupied with one another, to turn to one another for help, to blame one another for trouble, to do violence to one another when things weren’t going right. Why could this not be turned around? Could women liberating themselves, children freeing themselves, men and women beginning to understand one another, find the source of their common oppression outside rather than in one another? Perhaps then they could create nuggets of strength in their own relationships, millions of pockets of insurrection. They could revolutionize thought and behavior in exactly that seclusion of family privacy which the system had counted on to do its work of control and indoctrination. And together, instead of at odds—-male, female, parents, children—they could undertake the changing of society itself.”—Howard Zinn, A People’s History of the United States (via sluthaditcoming)
“A dictator cannot be allowed to shun the foreign press, and to shut off his country, and kill his people, and not have anybody not know their names and the struggles they are undergoing… The world should know what’s happening.”—Anderson Cooper on Libya (via lifeaficionada)
Back when we launched two of Tumblr’s most unique features, reblogging and the Tumblr Bookmarklet, we devised automatic “via” links in post captions as a simple solution for attribution. Three years later, this solution has gotten us pretty far. But it’s easy to spot some real shortcomings:
I guess my favorite place on campus so far would be the horseshoe. The horseshoe and the buildings in it were the original university, and since I’m a history nerd I love that! The confederate soldiers used the horseshoe during the civil war (which is SO awesome!!!) and actually kept it from being burnt down. The horseshoe was reconstructed but is still a huge part of campus. A lot of offices are in the buildings that are on the horseshoe, and the area is also used for a lot of ceremonies.
So of course I love the history behind the horseshoe, but I also love it just for its overall atmosphere. It’s really amazing to see an area like that with trees and plant life in the middle of a city. It’s a really peaceful place and I’m sure when it gets a little cooler, I’ll be out there studying quite a bit!
No more need for 5 hour energy drinks (unless absolutely necessary). All you have to do is grab a glass of ice, and then suck on an ice cube. I’m pretty sure you can’t sleep with an ice cube in your mouth. :D
Then again, you could always end up spitting it up and wetting your bed… :|
tumblr is blowing up with LCD Soundsystem gifs/pictures/quotes and guys? Where were you all when I posted that I went in October? WHY DIDNT ANYONE THINK I WAS COOL THEN? I mean I knew then that that was going to be their last tour, so I am not sure what happened? Is it…
The image on Marber’s covers occupies just over two-thirds of the space, while the title section at the top is divided into three bands carrying colophon/series name/price, the title and the author’s name, with the type ranged left.
This arrangement, known as the Marber grid, gives the books a distinctive visual unity.
