when did we replace the word “said” with “was like”
i think it’s really interesting and cool actually that language has shifted so that ‘said’ implies that you’re quoting, while ‘was like’ means ‘i’m doing a general impression of this dude’. i mean you can’t really harsh on someone when ‘she was like aaah!’ means exactly that, doesn’t it? she was doing something very similar to the particular scream being made. so, ‘like’ indicates that you’re dealing with generalities and inexact terms, and want to convey the gist of things rather than focussing on exact phrasing and technical details—which is pretty great for young people, who are still developing cognitively and thus not always great at stringing a coherent sentence together.
and then there’s “was all”, which tends to indicate a parody or exaggeration, or an even looser impression.
she said: “I know I’ve filed these for you before, but it’s really not part of my job duties and I’m very busy today.”
she was like: “done filing your paperwork, not my department, do it yourself.”
she was all: “shyeah, no.”
i am all in favor of flexibility in language and i think this is fantastic.
Pharrell had the beat and he wrote almost every single part of the song.
Thicke: “He wrote the whole thing pretty much by himself and I was envious of that.”
Williams backed up Thicke’s limited involvement in the writing, adding that he himself wrote those terrible lyrics, and not Thicke, as widely believed/assumed/hoped.
But no one will call him out on it!
The first thing I thought when I read this was: they’ll ignore this.
This doesn’t get Robin Thicke off the hook though? He supported these lyrics and went along with it. He’s just as much at fault as Pharrell Williams. They’re both rape sympathists.
Yea like he still sang it, they’re both trash. This doesn’t absolve him of anything at all.
This was on the news once, and it was just “I was too high and drunk to write that” and all I could say to that was “You still SUNG it though.”
Oh look, someone finally noticed
In case you needed proof that Peta is literal scum.
Not to mention that in a 2010 inspection conducted by a VDACS veterinarian, it was discovered that 84 percent of the animals Peta took in were killed within 24 hours. [source]
Being one, I can vouch that 99.9% of vegitarians believe PETA is actual pond scum
Don’t be so insulting. Pond scum is far superior to PETA.
The save the whales one. This makes me want to stick a middle in their face and eat more meat.
and the autism one is based off an old wrong study of some sort AND THERE IS NO LINK BETWEEN AUTISM AND DAIRY. FOR FRICK’S SAKE, FOOD DOES NOT CAUSE AUTISM.
Im an autistic vegetarian and hOLY FUCK I HATE PETA WITH A BURNING PASSION
The world famous Winchester Mystery House™ in San Jose, California, is an extravagant maze of Victorian craftsmanship – marvelous, baffling, eerily eccentric, and undeniably, haunted. Wander through 110 of the 160 rooms of this Victorian mansion, designed and built by the Winchester Rifle heiress Sarah Winchester. For nearly thirty-eight years the round-the-clock sawing, sanding, and hammering at the Winchester Mystery House™never ceased. Was Sarah cursed by the ghosts of those killed by the Winchester rifle or did she use the endless building and rebuilding as a distraction from grief over the deaths of her loved ones? The mystery shrouding the Winchester Mystery House™ may never allows us to separate fact from the legend.
Has this been on the show or…?

pick one band that you listened to recently, then five fave songs from them.
*Whines* that’s hard too. My music is on shuffle almost always. I have two artists I love, and honestly, if I had to pick a concert to go to, both at the same time, I would literally break down crying.
I can’t pick one band, and I can’t possibly narrow it down to five songs…
