Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
TIL there are a surprising number of Game of Thrones / Mean Girls crossover gifs.
I’m coming to realize there is an Aubrey Plaza gif for absolutely every situation in my life.
Saved for later
"I tend to be cynical about a lot of things, but Maya Angelou is somebody that no matter how much I pick her apart, she still has integrity. She was a victim of incest and rape, and she worked as a stripper. And now she’s a literary icon and Nobel Laureate. It goes to show that life is cumulative, and you can’t devalue any type of experience."
Curtains forcing their will
against the wind,
exchanging dreams with
seraphim. The city
drags itself awake on
subway straps; and
I, an alarm, awake as a
rumor of war,
lie stretching into dawn,
unasked and unheeded.
—Maya Angelou, 1983
Today we will see a lot of bold, inspirational quotes which lose meaning in their endless repetition as white text over photos of an older, safer woman. Don’t forget Maya the quiet poet, the fervent revolutionary, the exotic dancer tipped so well the main floor strippers got her fired… She will be missed.
