CAN I GET A SHOUT OUT TO THAT STORE OWNER IN FERGUSON FOR RELEASING THE FULL VIDEO AND PROVING THE POLICE WERE LYING ABOUT MICHAEL BROWN ROBBING HIS PLACE
Not that that video was ever relevant, except to people who think that, for black people, the penalty for shoplifting should be execution without trial. I wouldn’t worry about convincing those racist assholes of anything.
I follow a lot of people from a lot of fandoms and yet the only thing everyone agrees about is how devastating this news is..For most of us Robin Williams was out childhood..
He was the Peter Pan who grew up
The loving father pretending to be a nanny to be close to his children in Mrs Doubtfire
The boy who got stuck inside a game and brought us to Jumanji
He made us laugh as the Genie from Aladdin
and cry while we watched Patch Adams
We saw the inventor in Flubber and the android in Bicentennial Man
No one can forget the hilariousness that is the Birdcage or his craziness in Night at the Museum
and there’s no way anyone can forget our deeply beloved Professor John Keating
If this really is true, then I hope you found the peace you needed and that you are happy now because there’s not one person in the world who can say that you didn’t make them happy..
Because you did you made us immensely happy, you showed us it was okay to be ourselves, it was okay to want to be a writer, or an artist and that poetry meant a lot more than just words on a paper, that laughter could heal even the sickest of hearts and that we should always let our imagination fly..
I know for me personally, you changed my life and I’ll be forever grateful to you..
i refuse to be shamed for having a body. i refuse to get embarrassed when a tampon falls out of my purse or spend a whole day anxious about if someones going to notice that i forgot to shave a patch of leg hair. i wasnt put on this earth to spend my time apologizing for my existence and i refuse to let anyone make me feel like i have to waste my energy on all that petty shit

robin williams died today.
here is a list of things that robin williams was:
- and sad.
that’s important, the “and sad,” because sometimes sadness can feel like the only thing we are. it can feel all-encompassing. it can feel like the only thing anyone could possibly see, when they look at you: sad. that person is so, so, sad.
but there is always an “and.” we are never just sad. we are never only. we are always and.
we have all known people who were sad, who are sad; some of us are ourselves sad. being sad does not remove the other parts of us, though it can make them harder for us to see. when you are sad, you don’t necessarily feel like you are also funny, and sharp, and clever, and kind.
but you still are. you don’t have to feel like something to be it.
those things are written on your bones, they are woven into the fabric of your skin. sadness can feel so big, so big and overwhelming and complete, even when it is not a directed sadness. maybe especially when it is not a directed sadness, when it’s a depression that has no direct cause and nothing we can name.
sometimes the sadness is too big. people try to cut it out, or starve it out, or drink it down, or drug it silent. if this is you: i’m sorry. if this is you: you are not alone. if this is you: remember that the solution is never to give up, because you do not live in a vacuum. there are people waiting for you. there are films and songs and books and not-sadness waiting for you. i know that you don’t feel like waiting, but wait anyway.
if you need help, ask for it. here’s a link to crisis centers across the globe. if you live in the U.S., this is the national suicide prevention hotline: 1-800-273-8255.
robin williams died today, but the genie didn’t, and mrs. doubtfire didn’t, and peter pan didn’t. sean maquire didn’t, and professor philip brainard didn’t, and alan parrish didn’t. batty koda didn’t. john keating didn’t. you didn’t.
