This is one of the reasons The LEGO Movie hit wayyy closer to home than Frozen to me. Instead of a problem that only tackles some few, selected people, you can’t deny that at least at one point you have looked at yourself and felt worthless because everyone around you outshines you even in the things you’re good at.
That’s one of the reasons this movie made me legitimately cry in the theater, that, and due to the fact that the moral that accompanies this is much more empowering than just “letting it go”.
And let’s talk about that facial expression at the end like I didn’t know a lego could make me cry.
There is a tiny fucking tear in his eye oh my God…
I haven’t seen this yet, but I want to.
I lost it whne the dad and son were talking… Like we get so carried away with rules in our lives that we forget what it’s like to live in a world with no boundaries and no limits to what we can do.
Truth is Beauty by Marco Cochrane
One of the most eye-catching artworks at this year’s Burning Man festival was a 55-feet tall sculpture of a woman in a beautifully elegant pose. Truth is Beauty is the second of three sculptures in a series called The Bliss Project by artist Marco Cochrane. Constructed of welded steel rods and balls and covered in stainless steel mesh skin, the massive sculpture had interactive lighting effects that made it constantly change.
Hugging shorter people and resting your head on theirs
Hugging taller people and having your head against their chest
Hugging people your height and pressing your face against their shoulder
Hugging people and getting picked up by them
Not having people to hug
Giving a hug that comes off as weird
This post describes me in every way
You died on a Saturday morning. And I had you placed here under our tree. And I had that house of your father’s bulldozed to the ground. Momma always said dyin’ was a part of life. I sure wish it wasn’t.
Little Forrest, he’s doing just fine. About to start school again soon. I make his breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day. I make sure he combs his hair and brushes his teeth every day. Teaching him how to play ping-pong. He’s really good. We fish a lot. And every night, we read a book. He’s so smart, Jenny. You’d be so proud of him. I am. He, uh, wrote a letter, and he says I can’t read it. I’m not supposed to, so I’ll just leave it here for you.
Jenny, I don’t know if Momma was right or if, if it’s Lieutenant Dan. I don’t know if we each have a destiny, or if we’re all just floating around accidental-like on a breeze, but I, I think maybe it’s both. Maybe both is happening at the same time. I miss you, Jenny. If there’s anything you need, I won’t be far away.
WHY ARENT THERE ADULT-SIZED PLAYGROUNDS
LIKE EVERYTHING IS THE SAME AS A KIDS PLAYGROUND
WHY DO WE NOT HAVE THOSE
theme parks. just. theme parks.
but u have to pay for theme parks
that’s the adult part
son of a bitch
ladies and gentlemen, behold
the St. Louis City Museum:
Playground for adults and children.
They even serve alcohol.
I know where we’re going guys
I have been here and you can climb on EVERYTHING. Like nothing is off limits!!! There are no maps here and if you ask for one, they point to a sign that says, “Have fun and explore!” Don’t let the name “City Museum” mislead you as it is so so so so much more than that.
Some parents don’t like it because there’s so many small spaces where kids can easily get lost from parents, and I don’t blame them cause there are some really small places that only kids can fit, and those places lead to a completely new area.
BUT OMG, THIS PLACE. I spent 6 hours with my boyfriend and another couple, and there still wasn’t enough time. They have a 10 story slide and they also have a lot of other slides, and an indoor skateless skatepark, and a rooftop slide and ferriswheel, and just OMG I could go on! I hardly ever urge people to go to places, but YOU SHOULD ALL GO!!!!
You will feel like a kid again, having so much fun that you’ll wind up with bruises and not even realize you got them. You may also get cuts. Bring some waxed paper if you want to go fast down slides. And rent some knee pads from the gift shop to ease the bruising on your knees.
But just go. Just seriously go. These pics don’t even do it justice.
comic about how I’ve been feeling recently
I feel this. I think a lot of this has happened more because of the instant availability of things due to technology. When we didn’t have as much available, like tumblr, facebook, reddit, imgur, netflix, ect, I think many people were so much more able to set aside time to relax and browse the internet… but with it on our phones, and in our lives in such a way, we can’t escape it. I think it’s almost a chore to set aside time to do the things that you used to care about, but because of how easy it is to just slump away into the online world, it’s hard to really, utterly care about the other things.
