firmly 3 weeks into this bout of not sleeping and I’m starting to get angry about it now.

Dan: Sometimes it’s worth it. Taking all the pies in the face. Sometimes you come through it feeling good.

Casey: Yes.

Dan: And how was your day?

Casey: Sometimes you just stand there. Hip-deep in pie.

Anyway, larger point: I don’t want to see fucking stolen naked pictures of Justin Verlander and Kate Upton.

WHY WOULD YOU DATE SOMEONE WITH YOUR LAST NAME? AM I THE ONLY ONE WORRIED ABOUT COUSINS I HAVE NEVER MET?

that was actually a weird brain conflation thing from me — she’s dating Justin Verlander, not Justin Upton.    

But yes, that is also a distressing thought.

Justin Verlander is dating Kate Upton, so guess what’s showing up in the baseball tag now?

there are a lot of things I love about Party Down, but one thing I never really thought about or appreciated until watching it right now is how often Casey seeks out the advice and life experience of other women at their gigs and how much she doesn’t give a shit, generally, about what the guys have to say.

retrocampaigns:

Last week, the Internet Archive announced that 2.6 million images extracted from the Archive’s public domain eBooks have been uploaded to Flickr Commons. But not just that - they’re tagged and they include about 500 words surrounding the image. So full-text searches of images, basically. Oh, and that 2.6 million images is just the first batch. There are a total of 14 million images extracted which will ultimately be uploaded to Flickr.

What’s cool, too, is that even though not all the images are on Flickr yet, browsing can lead you to more images at the Archive itself. For instance, there’s an amazing series of books at the Archive I discovered via the Flickr account called Reminiscences about Abraham Lincoln, which are newspaper clippings and recollections cataloged by the last name of the people included. The “Wi” section (surnames beginning with “Wi”) is on Flickr, but only a handful of the images are uploaded so far. But on the main page for any of the images on Flickr (like this, for example), you can find the link to the Archive page, with the full volume.

Anyway, long story short: that’s how I found the image above, and this week I’ll be posting finds from the Internet Archive’s Flickr account, or finds that began with browsing the Flickr account!

You’re the weak one
And you’ll never know love, or friendship
And I feel sorry for you

Valerie (ft Amy Winehouse) » Mark Ronson

'Cos since I've come on home, well my body's been a mess
And I've missed your ginger hair and the way you like to dress
Won't you come on over, stop making a fool out of me
Why won't you come on over Valerie, Valerie?

I woke up this morning gripped with the desire to watch the final scene in center stage, which I find kind of concerning
