It makes sense in context

I keep thinking about classic movies this morning like Ninotchka and The Lady Eve and I miss TCM so much.

so sick of seeing so called poor people buying iPhones. Ever thought that might be a contributing factor to you being poor. perhaps next time you think spending $800 on a fancy new phone every year is a good idea you buy a house with that money. a thin sliver of a house. a house part. A door. A stack of 8 bathroom tiles. a curtain. Within like 90 years you would have a complete house idiots

Was angry till I read it all.

I have seen “Wait Until Dark” and Audrey is both awesome in it and over 20. She plays a blind woman fending off drug smugglers. I recommend it. Wish I could watch it now.

‘Cause people seem to only post the 20-something Audrey Hepburn.

Audrey Hepburn was the granddaughter of a baron, the daughter of a nazi sympathizer, spent her teens doing ballet to secretly raise money for the dutch resistance against the nazis, and spent her post-film career as a goodwill ambassador of UNICEF, winning the presidential medal of freedom for her efforts.
…and history remembers her as pretty.

AND HISTORY REMEMBERS HER AS PRETTY

note

this is the first time I have ever seen a picture of her older than 20 and I think that’s scary

Before you start ranting about the minimum wage being to low and want it to be $15.

This should be funny but it’s too true to laugh at. Raising the minimum wage will destroy low wage employment (AKA entry level jobs).

Okay no that is absolutely not true?!
By raising the minimum wage you ensure that people can actually, you know, BUY THINGS and SUPPORT THE ECONOMY?
Okay I am literally too tired of this horseshit. You know how much McDonalds would have to raise their prices in order to actually pay a REASONABLE minimum wage?
A nickle. And not even on ALL of their food items- just SOME of them.
You assholes trying to keep the poor from trying to improve their situation make me fucking sick. Do you even KNOW HOW FUCKING CAPITALISM WORKS?
YOU PAY PEOPLE PROFIT FOR THEIR WORK SO THEY CAN BUY MORE THINGS AND PAY OTHERS PROFIT FOR THEIR GOODS AND SERVICES AND ITS A GODDAMN CYCLE. YOU DONT KEEP PEOPLE BARELY PAID ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO FEED OR CLOTHE OR HOUSE THEMSELVES BECAUSE THAT KILLS THE GODDAMN ECONOMY.
THE WORKING FORCE IS WHAT POWERS THE ECONOMY
NOT CORPORATE SHITFUCKS TRYING TO BRING US BACK TO 1800’S WORK CONDITIONS
THANK YOU AND GOOD FUCKING NIGHT.

Tumblr user artiestroke lays down the law

Also the touchscreen kiosks that McDonald’s Europe ordered back in 2011 shown in the picture were ordered to speed up taking orders so their paid employees could focus more on filling those orders, not as a method of replacing minimum wage workers
As a matter of fact, they projected back in 2011 that this would result in an INCREASE in jobs
So yeah dommypls and americas-liberty, learn economics.

Someone asked me once whether I was worried that these things would take over my job (when I was still working fast food) and I saw them as a fucking godsend for customers who wanted to be grouchy and not, you know, treat me like a real person while they were ordering because it meant I didn’t have to talk to them and they didn’t have to talk to me and I just had to focus on getting shit ready.
Basically if you think this is the most challenging part of fast food you’ve never worked hospitality. You won’t believe the people who go off their nut because no shit their pickle is off-centre.

It must have sucked for the boys who got castrated for their voice and yet didn’t make it as a singer, though it might have been a boon for the transgender ones.

When people hear about castrati they think the Catholic Church was going out castrating boys. No, elective castration was technically against the Church’s teaching but if the boy say…accidentally…lost his testicles *nudge nudge wink wink* that was perfectly okay.

Anonymous asked: can we see your 12 page essay on the sex appeal of castrati?

Maybe. I have thought before about posting it but I was paranoid some student would plagarize from it. A bigger problem is the inadvertent transphobia at the end but I’ve already posted a quote of the offending piece. So I guess I could post it stripped of my name.
