    "We’ve all selected the wrong partners, all gotten hurt, and hopefully all moved on wiser for the experience. But there are those who, even in the face of constant disappointment, continue to believe that the intensity of their desire will be rewarded by an eventual jackpot of affection. And if that’s the slot machine you’re playing, friend, you’d better leave the casino ‘cause that one don’t pay out"

    The original story of the little mermaid is that she must kill the prince in order to be human, and in the end, she loves him too much and kills herself instead.

    The artwork is too great not to reblog. 

    Ok, ok - important expansion: she only has to kill the Prince because the deal was if he fell in love with her she could be human forever, and he didn’t. By which I mean, he was a good person and genuinely nice to her, but he didn’t fall in love. He fell in love with someone else, also perfectly nice - not the seawitch in disguise, fu Disney. The Mermaid is told she can only return to the sea now if she kills the Prince. She goes into the room where he and his lover lie sleeping and they look so beautiful and happy together that she can’t do it.

    That’s why she kills herself. And because it was a noble act she returns to sea as foam.

    One moral of the story was that women shouldn’t fundamentally change who they are for love of a man, and in theory Han Christian Anderson wrote it for a ballerina with whom he fell in love. She was marrying someone else who wouldn’t let her dance.

    Holy shit

    Well shit man

  6. To my retail working badasses:


    I am so thankful for you. You keep things I need stocked in stores so i can always have toilet paper, tums, and lip balm. 

    I owe you so much.. You are not invisible. Your hard thankless work means so so much to me. 

  7. I have a thought that I’m working on but haven’t nailed down yet

    But it goes like this:

    We romanticize things like alcoholism, addiction & depression in our artists, because we believe that it is responsible for and not a sidecar to their gifts.

    Somewhere along the way, someone convinced athletes hyper masculinity, unfettered anger, and abusive behavior are what “drive” them.

    Just like there are artists who believe that getting help will “rob them of their gifts”, I believe that the same is hammered in to young male athletes that: help is for the weak. You are strong. You prove your strength through physical domination.

    This cycle must stop.
