Watching this (and fearing broken ankles with each loop) I can’t helping thinking about that old quote Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, except backwards and in high heels.

But no, if you watch closely you’ll see she doesn’t even step on the last chair. That means she had to trust that fucker to lift her gently to the ground while he was spinning down onto that chair. That takes major guts. I’d be pissing myself and fearing a broken neck if I were in her place. Kudos to her. 

I can’t stop watching this. 

#I watched this for too long to not reblog

Whoa.


Mesmerizing!

The architect Frank Lloyd Wright designed 1141 buildings, but only 532 were actually completed during his lifetime. Many have since been demolished with only 400 buildings still standing. But did you know he designed a cat house? In the early 1950s, Gerald Tonkens commissioned Wright’s office to design and build his family’s residence in Cincinnati, Ohio. Mr. Tonkens’ daughter, Nancy, had a cat named Felinus and she requested an appropriate residence for the family pet. So the office designed a modern cat house in Wright’s favorite color, Cherokee Red. This important piece of feline design, along with the original rendering shown above, has passed through the hands of various auction houses and antique dealers over the years until it was recently acquired by the Feline Historical Museum in Alliance, Ohio, which I bet you didn’t know even existed. The museum not only displays the Wright-designed cat house but a large collection of historical feline artifacts like an early 1900’s wooden cat carrier, a 19th century scrapbook of cat memorabilia and over 1,400 cat-related books as well as real, live cats like Maine Coons and Ragdolls.

What I Read as a Kid Wednesday!

I love that this is the theme today. I was a huge reader as a kid. Here are some formative books that jumped out at me when I was thinking about past reads.

1. When Dog Was Little: I read a million little golden books with my parents and loved this one especially. I have it still and read it to Isaac.

2. The Little Critter series

3. The Tub People

4. Bridge to Terabithia

5. Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh

6.Time for Andrew

7. The Giver

8. The Secret Garden

9. Anne of Green Gables (my name came from this book) I played out scenes from this book and Secret Garden all the time at around 10 years old.

10. Harry Potter is very important! I like to reread them all the time.

Fun to reminisce! Looking forward to reading some of these to my kid.

Thanks isaactheexplorer for sharing your favorites—definitely some great books in this list!!

I remember scoffing at this, thinking how out of touch it was - we were scene kids and the music was emo.

Anonymous asked: Am I kind of racist for thinking that my sociology elective is the biggest. fucking. most unproductive. waste of shitty-fucking time. EVER? Please, keep in mind, I am an EE major. Fuck this stupid fucking rip-off fucking class.

Dogg, if you’re going to spend the rest of your life doing electrical engineering, you shouldn’t be allowed to graduate until you can demonstrate that you can see the world through the lens of something other than the white male lens. Don’t worry, asshole, you’ll be back cloistered away with your white dudes soon enough.

Anonymous asked: How come when you say 'don't be racist' racists hear 'don't be white'?

I gotta say, it’s probably because they’re stupid as all hell.

Be a dad. Don’t be ‘Mom’s assistant.’ That’s depressing, just waiting for her to write you a list, walk around a store staring at it, calling her from the cereal aisle to make sure you got the right thing. Be a man. Make your own list. Fathers have skills that they never use at home. You run a landscaping business and you can’t dress and feed a 4-year-old? Take it on. Spend time with your kids and have your own ideas about what they need. It won’t take away your manhood; it will give it to you. I did that. I spent more time with my kids. And I found out that I’m a pretty bad father. I make a lot of mistakes and I don’t know what I’m doing. But my kids love me. Go figure.

Also, dont talk badly about your wife when she’s not around, it’s unnecessary at best and cruel at worst. So many men do this, especially when you’re working with their kids.
