EVERYONE STOP USING “HELLA” WRONG
I HAVE HAD CONVERSATIONS ABOUT ‘HELLA’ LONGER THAN AN EPISODE OF YOUR FAVORITE SHOW LET ME BREAK IT DOWN FURTHER
'HELLA' HAS ITS ROOTS AS A CONTRACTION OF 'A HELL OF A', LIKE “WE HAD A HELL OF A GOOD TIME” BECOMING “WE HAD A HELLA GOOD TIME”
HOWEVER IF YOU WERE TO SAY “THE STORE HAS A HELL OF A LOT OF CLOTHES” YOU DON’T SAY “THE STORE HAS HELLA LOT OF CLOTHES” BECAUSE IN THIS INCARNATION HELLA IS A QUANTIFIER AND SAYING ‘HELLA LOT OF’ MAKES AS MUCH SENSE AS ‘MUCH LOT OF’
IT’S ALSO VERY CONTEXT DEPENDENT IN THAT IT’S BEST USED IN A CLAUSE THAT’S NOT INTERROGATIVE IE A SENTENCE OR STATEMENT THAT’S NOT ASKING A THING
SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA PEOPLE WILL LOOK AT YOU WEIRD FOR SAYING ‘WHERE ARE THE HELLA BUSES’ BUT GENERALLY NOT BAT AN EYE IF YOU SAY ‘GOD DAMN THERE’S USUALLY HELLA BUSES WHERE THE FUCK ARE THEY’
SOURCE: MY FAMILY HAS LIVED IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA FOR A HELLA LONG TIME AND BY THAT I MEAN OVER A CENTURY
LITERALLY EVERY WORD IS MADE UP AND THERE ISN’T A SINGLE LANGUAGE THAT HASN’T EVOLVED SINCE ITS CREATION I THINK ALL Y’ALL NEEDA CALM THE FUCK DOWN ABOUT WORDS LIKE “HELLA” AND “LITERALLY” YOU STUPID PIECES OF SHIT
WORDS HAVE MEANINGS YOU FUCKWEASEL AND YOU CAN’T JUST PICK AND CHOOSE NEW DEFINITIONS AND GET MAD WHEN NOBODY KNOWS WHAT THEY FUCK YOU’RE SAYING
IF SOMEONE ASKS ME HOW MY DAY WAS I CAN’T JUST SAY ‘ABSOLUTE GRAPE’
THE EVOLUTION OF LANGUAGE, I CAN’T CALL MY SISTER A SLUT FOR HAVING A MESSY ROOM, WHEN I SAY I’M GAY I DON’T MEAN HAPPY AND MOST OF THE TIME HELLA IS USED PROPERLY.
EVERYONE CALM DOWN IT’S GONNA BE OKAY. IT GETS BETTER
I WILL TAKE IT
I WILL TAKE THE RING TO MORDOR
My awesome shirt from my awesome boy.
This is the perfect time for me to bring up a discussion I had with my boy. He wanted to know in what ways I found BC attractive. First, let it be known, my bf has nothing against the actor (well, except perhaps my obsession, which only seems to grow monthly); but we both agreed that he’s not a Hollywood kind of cookie-cutter attractive man.
I admitted that the first time I saw, “Sherlock,” I compared Cumberbatch to a praying mantis (long, lanky frame, all sorts of angular body parts, piercing eyes), and maybe a raptor (I don’t remember my reasoning behind it, though it’s hardly an insult in my warped little mind).
But these GIFs above are just one of many reasons for why I quickly grew to adore him.
He says so much with nothing more than his eyes, facial expressions, body language— basically, he can speak volumes without actual speech, He doesn’t just play a character— his “acting” transcends in to “living.”
And I’m going to have to stop now, because I can feel my heart rate speeding up, and I’m going to word vomit all over the interwebz. BUT FIRST, this: he’s genuinely a fascinating, well-rounded man. I’m always hearing some random tidbit, whether it’s how he officiated a wedding to marry two of his friends, or how he painted oil canvases, and taught English at a Tibetan monastery.
Oh, and he’s humble as hell. That could be because he’s British, or just because he’s a fucking wonderful human being.
As you were.
HE IS SO GODDAMN CUTE AND HOT IN THIS INTERVIEW.
JAKE - I HATE YOU!
YOU HAVE RUINED ALL MEN FOR ME.
I don’t think any man will ever live up to my jake expectations.
It’s true. This is one of the hottest kiss scenes. Of. All. Time.

Amazing Street Art from Plastic Jesus
From the crowded urban streets of Los Angeles, California comes a street artist known as Plastic Jesus. He creates incredible and controversial art installations, such as a giant mouse-trap with credit cards as bait, a fake grave with flowers and a mock rifle positioned as a headstone for the 11,458 people killed during 2011 and 2012 with automatic weapons or a giant spilled can of Mountain Dew cordoned off as if it were toxic waste. He consistently creates public mixed-media pieces that point out the negative aspects of our culture into something thought provoking. The installations above are titled as followed:
- Stop Making Stupid People Famous
- Credit Trap
- Toxic Hazard
- No Kardashians
- American Excess
- RIP 11,458

Sending those colouring books into Russia could result in so many repercussions for the families of the children who receive the books. The Russian government and many of the country’s people do not take kindly to those encouraging something they are attempting to eradicate from the country.
When I interned at a non-profit humanities news organisation last fall, I was put on editing recordings of interviews from individuals in Russia who had been persecuted, imprisoned, and even sent on the run because they were LGBTQIA, or were found to support the movement for equal rights in the country.
Their stories were heartbreaking, and it took a while for me to accept that yes, somewhere in the world this is going on, and this is what life is like for those individuals. I am not - by any means - an expert on life for LGBTQIA individuals in Russia. But I am telling you what I believe and know, from past informational experiences. If these books are sent to homes in that country, the lives of those children and their families will be at risk.
FCKH8 can try to send the books discreetly. They can try to smuggle them into homes. But there is always the huge chance that the books will still be found, and the government would not hesitate to hand out consequences.
Children would be taken from their parents. If they were heard talking about their “colouring pages with Misha and his two moms,” these children could be forced to endure physical punishment by any number of people. Adults and parents found guilty of accepting the books into their homes would most likely be put in prison.
According to the Nov. 1 article from advocate.com, FCKH8 is also planning on handing out thousands of “GAY OKAY!/ГЕЙ ОКЕЙ!” bracelets during the Winter Olympics. Anyone caught wearing these bracelets in the country will be putting themselves in danger of temporary imprisonment and/or a fine from the Russian government.
There are other options when it comes to fighting for equal rights in Russia - not purchasing Russian products, not attending the Winter Olympics, becoming more informed on the movements and organisations already in action in Russia.
I don’t believe FCKH8 has completely thought through their plans, and the consequences of it. But you can make sure it doesn’t happen. Tell your friends, family, and anyone who will listen. Do not like or reblog/repost the FCKH8 post on Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, or any other form of social media. Stay informed.
FCKH8 has been doing some pretty crappy things to LGBTQ artists as well, since it started very early on.
Now they might actually be putting lives at risk.
