“A man’s hair, like society, should be neatly parted: renters to the left, homeowners to the right.”
This is a small clip from a segment I helped produce for the BBC’s The Vote Now Show. The full thing airs (and streams live) today at 3PM pacific time (11PM GMT). Rep. Martin and his beautiful wife Jazz are an inspiration to every American.

Know the difference between ‘rekindling a love’ and ‘rekindling a familiarity’.
A lot of people have trouble with this especially when it relates to a recent ex. I’ve had trouble with this a lot in the past. I question what ‘rekindling a love’ really is. Or if it is even possible. And if you try to make it possible, does the comfort of familiarity override the love itself. The goal of Rule #6 is to establish the difference between the two.
Most people identify the ‘familiar’ as the ‘safety net’, but I think it is a little more than that. Familiarity is a trick nasty hoe. It will really have you believe that you have fallen back in love with this familiar love. And this usually happens when you spend time with someone that is so UNfamiliar that it is scary. It is fun at first to have something refreshing and new, but once things aren’t how you are used to having them, you run back to the comforting arms of ‘familiarity’.
Rekindling love is undeniable, but the familiar can disguise itself as such. So be careful. Love that is rekindled never really left in the first place. It is just a little strenuous to find the pieces, pick up the pieces, glue them together, laminate it, and make it look like it did before. So don’t. You will probably need a new puzzle altogether.
People need to understand that children with special needs don’thave an illness, so there is no cure & it’s not contagious. They only want what we all want, to be accepted. 93% of you probably won’t copy and paste this. Will you do it and leave it on your status for at least an hour? It’s Special Education week, and this is in honor of all the kids who need a little extra help & understanding.
I had to post this excerpt of the interview because it is comical.
So the intrusion into your personal life bothers you? No, it bothers you, because you have to actually think if it’s true or not and come sit down and ask this dumb a*s shit. I know you have to feel stupid, because it’s like me sitting here and looking at your [brown] hair and asking you, “Since you dyed your hair green, how do you feel?” Your hair obviously isn’t green.
“The lows are so extreme that the good seems fucking cheap and it teases you for weeks in its absence but you’ll fight and you’ll make it through. You’ll fake it if you have to and you’ll show up for work with a smile and you’ll be better and you’ll be smarter, more grown up and a better daughter or son and a real good friend. And you’ll be awake, you’ll be alert. You’ll be positive though it hurts and you’ll laugh and embrace all of your friends and you’ll be a real good listener. You’ll be honest, you’ll be brave. You’ll be handsome and you’ll be beautiful… and you’ll be happy.”—A Better Son/Daughter // Rilo Kiley (via fuckyeahhappy)
After 15 years in prison, a man escapes. He breaks into a house to look for
money & guns, but finds a young couple in bed. He snatches the man out of the bed ties him to a chair. He ties the girl to the bed an kisses her neck. Then he gets up & goes into the bathroom. The husband tells his wife: “Listen. This is the guy we heard about on the news! He’s dangerous and an escaped convict! He probably hasn’t seen a woman in years. I saw how he kissed your neck. If he wants to fuck you, don’t resist, don’t complain…do whatever he tells you or he might kill us both. Be strong, honey. I Love you.”
The wife responds, “He wasn’t kissing my neck…he was whispering in my ear. He told me he was gay, thought you were cute, and asked if we had any Vaseline. I told him it was in the bathroom. Be strong, honey. I LOVE YOU TOO!”
these are thoughts bare with me. cognitive dissonance there’s a bit of this in all of us and more over we resolve these feelings with adaptive preference. but im not really here to talk about that. actually i dont really know what i want to talk about i just want to share thoughts. as i chugg my four loko i realize that life is comprised of choices and im becoming less afraid to make these choices. i only have one fucking shot at this thing and i dont want to die saying i wish. in life theres a winner and a loser. often times is the loser is the guy who doesnt take action. id rather fail because i tried than fail because something passed me by or rather never know that i could have succeeded. grab life by whatever the horns, testicles, ass or tits whatever you like to grab and take control. do what you want. you only live once, dont be the person at @big_sean is talking to in bullshittin. no one likes a bullshitter.
