hey who wants to donate like 50 euros for clothes or give me 50 euros of work or tell me a place in berlin I can shoplift a cardigan a pair of jeans and a shirt

Roxy Paine explores the collision of industry and nature, resulting in works that negotiate the characteristics inherently found in each realm. Progressing from an overarching interest in different modes of epistemological representation, Paine’s artistic endeavors – whether in the form of sculpture, installation, or works on paper - explore the notion of organized chaos, the ever-present drive to “know” the world through classification, organization, and arrangement.

—Art language is the most beautifully complicated way of saying absolutely fucking nothing.

A good tip is that if someone has an opinion of lolita that is at all sympathetic to humbert humbert you should run as far away from the garbage you have bodyslammed them in to as you can.

its because athletes are an exploited class of workers. colleges profit immensely off of student athletes (both directly through ticket sales and indirectly through increased visibility and recruitment of other students due to successful or prominent athletic programs). it is, iirc, illegal to pay student athletes, so unlike their professional counterparts they go largely uncompensated.
furthermore, high-level/professional athletics are often highly destructive to the players bodies (this is especially true in american football, which here in the us is one of the biggest collegiate sports), often leading to significant medical problems later in life, not to mention the more immediate risk of injury etc.
anyway the point of all of this is that we shouldn’t be comparing an athlete’s financial aid package to an ‘ordinary’ student’s, but rather we should be comparing the value of their financial aid packages to the compensation received by their colleagues playing in the pro leagues

reasons I can relate to a possum:

-tired & unkempt, smells weird
-emotions ranging from “displeased” to “existential scream”
-no work ethic
-lies around looking dead when overwhelmed
-will eat trash & live amongst trash if left to own devices
-sometimes you feel bad and feed it a sandwich

-scream at own ass

If you’re married to a middle aged white writer and he moves you guys in to a quieter place so he can get some writing done just go ahead and divorce him and leave because there’s a 100% chance he will get possessed and try to kill you.

Was tumblr’s recommended posts algorithm written by a mild sadist to be as offensive as possible to your tastes or what because tonight I have been recommended a jeff koons photoset and an anti-feminist blog.
