A neo-Nazi Russian group has taken to social media to publicise images and videos of gay teenagers lured in on the promise of a date, before torturing them and forcing them to come out to friends and family on video.
I DON’T CARE WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT ARE YOU DOING ON MY BLOG BUT YOU HAVE REBLOG THIS. I just don’t care. It’s time to boycott Russian Olimpics and don’t buy Russian vodka.
Even foreigners can be arrested in Russia now because of Putin’s anti-gay laws. This shit is serious and fucking archaic. Not only that, but the built up homophobia and hatred that has turned to violence is just atrocious.
This is heartbreaking. Early tracking suggests that Guillermo del Toro’s long-awaited “robots vs. monsters” movie Pacific Rim is gaining less audience interest than Grown-Ups 2, which opens the same weekend. Legendary Pictures “risks losing a lot of money” on Pacific Rim, Variety warns.
I don’t have many followers, I know this. But tumblr is more than than the followers you have, the ears that first hear your voice when you shout, when you cry.
Get the word out.
If giant robots fighting giant monsters flops on our watch, on this generation’s turn at bearing the torch of nerdom, we shall forever be remembered as the generation that lost it all.
I say, no. Not this time. Not this movie. We will not fail our genre and the geeks that came before us- dreaming of this day- nor those destined to follow us.
But the 8-hour workday is too profitable for big business, not because of the amount of work people get done in eight hours (the average office worker gets less than three hours of actual work done in 8 hours) but because it makes for such a purchase-happy public. Keeping free time scarce means people pay a lot more for convenience, gratification, and any other relief they can buy. It keeps them watching television, and its commercials. It keeps them unambitious outside of work.
We’ve been led into a culture that has been engineered to leave us tired, hungry for indulgence, willing to pay a lot for convenience and entertainment, and most importantly, vaguely dissatisfied with our lives so that we continue wanting things we don’t have. We buy so much because it always seems like something is still missing.
