“A music fan that doesn’t have it in them to find new music anymore is like absolute death to me. I fucking hate when I hear people in their 50s say, ‘I’m too old to change.’ Fuck you, you’re lucky to be alive, asshole. Why don’t you try to grow? It’s a gift to get to be born and not suddenly die of cancer or get hit by a car. One day, you’re gonna be a rotting body in the ground and you’re gonna be like, ‘Wow, I kinda wish I listened to new music from ages 30 to 70.’”—According to Okkervil River leader Will Sheff, your dad is probably an asshole.

Sookie seems like a boring lay. Like, for an HBO show that is basically porn, there is a lot of missionary position sex going on.
The actor who plays Sam did an excellent job of portraying Tommy-In-Sam’s-Body. Like, really excellent. From the slight change in his accent and the pitch of his voice, to his mannerisms and the way he walks. It’s such a small thing but it’s refreshing in a sea of Terrible Acting.
That wasn’t even this week’s episode but WHATEVER
Seriously. I’ve read the first few books and she’s way more adventurous in those.
Huge, wonderful, important news: Today, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced that it will require all new insurance plans to cover birth control without co-pays under the new health reform law. This is one of the biggest victories for women’s health in a generation — and you helped make it happen.
By recognizing that birth control is an essential part of preventive health care, this HHS ruling will give countless women access to affordable birth control. That’s why we need to speak up one more time and make sure HHS knows how important this decision is to you, your friends, and your community.
It means fewer unintended pregnancies. It means more college students and young women can control their health and plan their families. It means a woman suffering from endometriosis could get the care she needs — saving her from chronic pain and potential infertility.
In the coming weeks, we can be sure that anti-choice and anti-family-planning groups are going to do everything they can to prevent women from getting access to more affordable birth control. And I have no doubt that their allies in Congress will try to turn back the clock on women’s health once more — it’s what they do. I know that I’ll need to count on you to stand with us against these attacks, and you can get started by sending your comment to HHS today.
Thank you for your ongoing support of Planned Parenthood and the women, men, and teens who rely on us — and for helping make victories like this possible.
Sincerely, Cecile Richards, President Planned Parenthood Federation of America
“I recently hosted a forum in my district called Women’s Rights in the Era of Extremism. And this is an era of extremism. These same people who want to shrink government till you can drown it in a bathtub also want mom to get back in the kitchen and take her shoes off and get pregnant. You understand? They are offended by strong, powerful women. And here’s the sad part — some of them are women themselves. Michele Bachmann being an example. So let’s stand up — let’s stand up for women’s rights, and brothers don’t leave the sisters out there. We gotta be in this thing together.”—Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN)
