"Which of the vegetables wears the strap-on?" is something I say in everyday conversations now. 

What is this comedian’s name? I’m interested in seeing her act in non-GIF form, but I’m not going to google vegetables wearing strap-ons.

Mae Martin!

What do you know, her name is all over the wall behind her! It didn’t even occur to me to look there.

Thanks.

10oclockdot:

The same clock shows up in Trouble in Paradise (1932) and Duck Soup (1933).  Hans Dreier did art direction for both films.  I’ve been unable to confirm whether they both appear in Christian Marclay’s The Clock.

That’s a great clock.

Jonathan Richman - That Summer Feeling (I, Jonathan)

thenearsightedmonkey:

Dear Students,

This sweeeeet song is full of images. If you are stumped about what to do for your final project maybe you can play a song you love like I love this song and make it the launch pad to start getting somewhere right away.

O! It’s true!

Your final project can be started by something as ordinary and extraordinary as a scene that’s called to mind by a song.

I’m just sayin’!

Sincerely

Prof. Chewbacca

sam:

I can feel it today, that summer feeling. It’s going to be a good one, right? Let’s all drink some beers in the park and play some bocce and croquet soon, okay?

I first heard this song in high school, and I didn’t understand how the summer feeling could possibly be something sad and haunting. 

I understand now.

Oh, my, god. Becky, look at her butt.
It is so big.

'baby got back' passes the bechdel test (via professorgo)

Like on the one hand this is just plain hilarious; on the other, it may be the most trenchant critique of using the Bechdel Test as a one-step proof of feminism that I’ve ever seen.

(via skalja)

The Bechdel Test was never intended as a one-step proof of feminism (although it is used they way by far too many people).

But also, “Baby Got Back” doesn’t pass the Bechdel Test. Becky has no lines; her friend has no name. People remember that opening as a dialogue, but it’s a monologue.

What’s that old proverb? A lie will be reblogged all over Tumblr before the truth makes it out of queue.

Meet Pabsteon, the beer pokémon.

Just an idea I had the other night while drinking PBR and eating Sour Patch Kids.
