I really like this time of the morning, when it’s daylight but there are no sounds other than birds and everything’s somehow slightly blue, but I only ever see it when I haven’t gone to sleep yet and the birds and the blue are faded out by the voice in my head that’s telling me to get the fuck to sleep because waking up is going to a bitch.
I’ve done such a good job of plucking my eyebrows recently
Where all da ladies at
I didn’t wake up until 3pm and I last drank coffee at 10pm, so I don’t see me sleeping soon. I have a sandwich, some juice, and I’m watching Fight Club while meticulously scouring for points to write analytical notes on for my film exam, so things aren’t so bad right now.
People don't "accidentally" make horrific comments. Dan Harmon does not have Tourette's. He's just too busy drowning in delusion to understand that words have meanings. Just because it is an informal environment doesn't mean it's a free-for-all, just like being drunk doesn't excuse making racist comments. Plenty of people in wars all over the world have had to watch their families being raped. Who the fuck is Dan Harmon to trivialise their pain?@Anonymous

I understand that reaction because my first response was to feel exactly the same, but my point is that unfortunately a lot of people aren’t educated to the implications of jokes about such subjects, and I don’t think they should necessarily be vilified for their actions when they subsequently apologise and admit wrongdoing. Had he defended his actions, I’d agree with the angry internet mob.
I don’t think the thought process was “sexual assault is funny, let’s make a joke out of it”. I think it was “I’m throwing around provocative and hyperbolic analogies about a subject I feel strongly about, what’s something horrible I can relate this too?” and it resulted in him saying something that was, admittedly, monstrous and horrible to hear/read.
Community seems to be mostly celebrated for its progressive characterisation and narratives, for which he is seemingly mostly responsible, so I don’t think of him badly because of this mistake, no matter how horrible.
(although I’m glad people like you are horrified because people like you are the reason people like me who once didn’t understand why some jokes were horrible now understand and why people like Dan Harmon probably won’t continue to make said jokes)
People are angrily criticising Dan Harmon a lot recently for the rape analogy he made when discussing the fourth season of Community and I think he should be angrily criticised for it
But he did apologise and say he didn’t want to offend or hurt anyone
And he didn’t write it and decide it was a wise thing to say publicly, it was him talking on an unscripted podcast and trying to be hyperbolic and provocative, and he made a huge mistake
A horrific statement can still be an accident. I don’t think opinions should be shaped around one mistake.
I have 14,566 songs on my iPod and I’m still realising I’m missing music daily. Although today is a good day, because I realised last night I hadn’t had The Gaslight Anthem on iTunes for a while, so I’ve got their discography back now (Sink or Swim is a masterpiece) with their new album, and I just got the new Tom Odell and Kanye West albums. I need the new Letlive album in my iTunes ASAP now, the YouTube stream feels too impersonal.
Things are good over in the marsneedswomen iTunes.
