“Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”Shut up already.

The ALS Association has a 4-star rating from Charity Watchdog. 
And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection. 

As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…

A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier.  Her dad has ALS.  The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.
This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp.  And they did.  She posted pics.
So if you feel like bitching about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.

Behind the Scenes of “All About That Bass” +

How are skinny girls supposed to feel love when your song is about loving only fat bodies?

oh snap. 

If one singular song out of every song on this planet doesn’t cater to skinny girls loving their bodies and makes skinny girls hate themselves then I’d hate to burst your bubble but they never loved themselves to begin with.

Fat girls are allowed to have something cater to them. Fat girls deserve to have something cater entirely and completely to them again.

If that bothers or offends you then you really need to check how much you rely on others for your 100% support.

The song doesn’t really even talk down about thin people. She celebrates her body type and says that she’s never going to be the Hollywood ideal. She’s not. Her. Just her. And that that’s okay. Then, the line that people wig their shit about, the ‘tell those skinny bitches that’ is IMMEDIATELY followed by the line that, naw, thin ladies, I know you have body image issues, too, just like the rest of us, and I want you to know you’re perfect just the way you are.

Basically, the song is about her and her body issues and that she loves herself even if she isn’t tiny and people should love themselves if they aren’t tiny. But if you are tiny? You should love yourself, too, because you’re all goddamn perfect and don’t let anyone tell you that you’re not.

That’s not even reading into the lyrics to desperately attempt to find some kind of deeper meaning in there. That’s just straight up listening to the song and the words once. I thought it was pretty transparent.

Best Concert Ever!

I haven’t been making personal videos last few weeks, two writing deadlines and transitioning my company to work with Legendary has kept me VERY busy, but this concert healed it all! Watching Howard Jones play the GoT theme on the Keytar might have been the best moment of the year. Of course I missed filming THAT but I did get me dancing like an idiot to one of my favorite songs :D

Ask UfYH: Don’t Give Me This Whole “Men Don’t See the Mess” Bullshit

[Original publication date: Jan. 2, 2014]

Q: My boyfriend and I just moved in together, and although we agreed on splitting the chores, I’m doing most of the cleaning. My boyfriend says it’s because men just don’t see dirt and messes like women do. 

A: Oh, sweetie, your boyfriend’s full of shit. (more…)

In case you missed it the first time around…

Man, the part about laundry. Back in the day I had to show my brother how to do laundry pretty much every single time he needed something washed. Put it in the washer, add some soap, turn it on, wait, done. Every. Single. Time. After about a month I was like ‘you know what? I’ve shown you how to do this at least 10 times. You know how to do it, you just don’t want to do it yourself.’

Shockingly, the next time he needed something washed, he somehow knew how to do it. And, thankfully, know that he’s a grown adult, living on his own, he still knows how to do laundry and can get it all taken care of himself.

Would you like to live in the Amityville house?

For the right price, I’d happily take my collection of creepy dolls and move right on in.

SPREAD THIS LIKE BUTTER ON A TOAST

how did people not know this

This whole ‘we’ll pop it up as a sidebar!’ thing tumblr’s done with URLs is pretty much the only change they’ve made that makes me seethe. I don’t want to hijack my dash to load a blog I would much rather be loading in another tab, thanks. ctrl forever.

It’s Time to Retire Doctor Who

One thing that’s always gotten me about Doctor Who is the Doctor’s unceasing zeal in trying to throw himself in front of a bulllet for every single character that has ever been on the show. Got a problem? Welp, I guess we should probably have the Doctor try to sacrifice himself to fix it! Can’t keep that door open much longer? Better leave yourself trapped on the wrong side of it with the monster instead of  scooting under it while you have time. It’d be one thing is it happened on occasion, but it’s like every single episode anymore.

(plus the fact that he’s, apparently, been tearing through regens like a teenage boy through a box of tissues over the last 50 years. If you [supposedly] only have so many do overs, one would think that you’d be a little more hep on making each one last)
