“I get it, fellas. She’s not intimidating, like one of those women who wears make-up and styles her hair, and has a good job that she enjoys, and confidence, and a..what do you call it…an adult woman’s sexuality. There’s nothing scary there, because there’s no mystery: she’s just like you! Mousy and shy. And one day your fantasy will come true. You’ll meet a nerdy, cute girl just like that (like you), and NOBODY BUT YOU WILL KNOW SHE’S PRETTY! Shhh! It’s a secret! And she’ll melt when she sees your record collection, and she’ll swoon when you play her the song you wrote, and she’ll never want to go out to a party where you’ll be forced to talk to people of social status, or comb your hair, or buy grown-up shoes, or demonstrate a hearty handshake, or make eye contact, or basically act like a man. You know what? If you want to date somebody just like you, here’s a novel idea: be gay. At a certain point, there’s a lot more dignity to actually taking it in the ass.”—Julie Klausner on guys who have crushes on Pam from The Office. (via toomuchawesome) (via thumbwrestlinginbaltimore)

I’ve been dealing with the truth that i have at times been a bad example and/or glorified self destructive behavior…
Regardless of varied judgments as to my cultural relevance, i am thankfully alive and exercising my joy in creating…
i’ve realized and accepted that if people decide to dislike me, they’re going to find reasons to justify disliking me. there’s nothing i can do about that. that said, it still does pain me to be accused of fictional crimes against innocents or to be implicated in romantic gossip involving the possibly reality-challenged—however unreliable the source or outlandish the accusations. in the end, however, i know that i have never done or even meant anyone any harm.
anyway, the lives of public figures are so much more boring than anyone can imagine. honestly.
“Lindsay Lohan and DJ girlfriend Samantha Ronson rolled up to my Monday night Twin Cheeks party at the Cock shortly before 3am last night and shut down the place with us at 4am, dancing to the Ting Tings’ That’s Not My Name and making small talk with the gays… The cute couple made out here and there but mostly enjoyed themselves, giving me the literal thumbs up at my playlist.”—DJ Josh Sparber’s report on Lohan’s Cock visit - Gawker

FEMALE clubbers were refused entry into Havana nightclub on Saturday night for being too fat.
Police were called to calm the situation outside the Halkett Street club as bouncers and manager Martin Sayers allegedly told women to ‘go away and lose some weight’.
Over 20 women are expected to give statements to the police today and a Facebook page, labelled Havana Club Jersey Discrimination and using an image from US cartoon Family Guy, has already attracted over 100 supporters calling for Islanders to boycott the club.
Georgina Mason was one of the ladies refused entry. The 23-year-old, who works for Lloyds TSB, had been enjoying a night out with friends when it turned sour.
‘About five or six or us got to Havana at about 11.30 pm and the bouncers said we were not allowed in because we were too big. I told them not to be ridiculous and asked to speak to the manager,’ she said.
‘When the manager came out he would not look at me directly but said that they had received too many complaints about fat people and he told me: “Go and lose some weight before you can come in – fat people are bad for business.”
