On parties & priorities
peterfeld: homeofthevain: I’m the type who’d be happy not going anywhere as long as I was sure I knew exactly what was happening at the places I wasn’t going to. I’m the type who’d like to sit home and watch every party that I’m invited to on a monitor in my bedroom. — Andy Warhol Via claytoncubitt. I call this spending a quiet night at home with Foursquare.

The case is going to have plenty of challenges, but the basis of the accusations is not wrong. The behavior of the church has been immoral and irresponsible with its response to the global AIDS crisis as well as the child rape problems inside the church. If this is some sort of class action: SIGN ME UP.

"Christendom" and America

shortformblog: Question: How many of those people think Obama is a Muslim? Could we just find and isolate the ~1/5 of the population that is clearly so stupid that they can’t find their way out of a Taco Bell in less than 2 hours, and then go home to watch only FoxNews and old Jeff Foxworthy VHS concerts? Just stop polling them. They clearly don’t know the answers. To anything....
James Franco launched his Twitter profile 2 days before I did on Friday of last week. He has 151,617 followers. I think it will probably take me another week or two to catch up. He is James fucking Franco, after all. Master of all crafts? Adorable couch-napping cat lover? Erotic pillow fetishist? I mean, who the fuck am I?
absurdlakefront: rising: garunriot: idntfd: Adele’s cover of The Cure’s Love Song. Magnificent. Her version sounds like a heartbreak song. That’s what an amazing vocal can do to you. Adele could sing Lonely Island’s “I Just Had Sex” and make it sound like a melancholy love song. I’m officially on board for all things Adele now. Here’s a sad tale. I was on a train going into...

In one case in which an African sister was forced to have an abortion, she died during the operation and her aggressor led the funeral mass. The Vatican is an organized crime syndicate. That thinks they still...

The soup kitchens have some families, some children, but mostly are adults, a little more male than female and they tend to be the poorest of the poor.
