Probably my favorite thing about Bob’s Burgers is that they don’t do that thing where the characters try to one-up each other with an endless barrage of jokes? No, the characters react like actual people instead. They actually laugh or chuckle when somebody says something actually funny and/or weird. They stop mid-sentence. They do double-takes. And it all feels so very natural, because that is exactly what common people do. And that is such a refreshing change of pace, when you consider the fact that the norm in these things is to have jokes relentlessly thrown at you at break-necking speed.

also the comedy doesn’t rely on the parents hating and berating eachother idk i love that

it shows how you don’t need to be offensive to be funny

general banter is the best way to write dialogue

The Egyptian Mau is probably the oldest breed of cat. In fact, the breed is so ancient that its name is the Egyptian word for “cat.”

now I am just imagining a very early Egyptian encountering a wild cat for the first time.

human: what the fuck are you?

cat: mau

human: oh okay then

'Downtime II'

This machine allows anyone to work for minimum wage for as long as they like. Turning the crank on the side releases one penny every 4.97 seconds, for a total of $7.25 per hour. This corresponds to minimum wage for a person in New York. This piece is brilliant on multiple levels, particularly as social commentary. Without a doubt, most people who started operating the machine for fun would quickly grow disheartened and stop when realizing just how little they’re earning by turning this mindless crank. A person would then conceivably realize that this is what nearly two million people in the United States do every day…at much harder jobs than turning a crank. This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.

Plantagenet (14th century): Horizontal Braiding, Gorget.
Gorget - When a wimple is worn without a veil, pinned over hair coils on the side of the head (Fig. 19). Sometimes the coils were braided horizontally (Fig.18). Horizontal Braiding- popular in the mid 14th century, the head would go uncovered, but sometimes a fillet would support the plaits ( Fig. 22).

Man okay when I got my wisdom teeth out it was a fucking experience. Before the surgery wasn’t too interesting but as soon as I woke up I saw the nurse next to me and was all like “hey… i think… i died… and now I’m in a parallel universe… and i gotta go back to my house and kill…

I got a promotion at work, I been drinking lots of good beer and whiskey, I went on a lil vacay to the catskills and lived in the mountains for a few days with a boy I like, i haven’t been reading enough books or working enough with final cut pro but that’s ok I’m working on it. Keira had two movies at tiff and this has been such a good year for her. I’m not on tumblr as much as I would like to be, I’m not writing or watching enough movies as I want to be, but that’s ok because life moves in weird little cycles. and right now i find myself in a new, unfamiliar one& all I know is life is confusing and weird and scary but I am happy


shout out to all the people still following me even though im a fucking idiot

I am constantly torn between wanting to improve myself and wanting to destroy myself.

I’m ashamed to have moaned so much in my letters. Don’t worry, my love, it’s only a superficial bad mood. Basically you write about things more than they exist, and that’s always because, at the moment of writing, you’re trying to describe an object — the gloomy world, or the wretchedness of life, etc. But if you try instead to make an hourly summary, there turns out to be not so much difference between the days and you’re neither as sad nor as unfortunate as all that.
