“I like to use profanity as a tool and not a crutch.”
Goddamn, Ye is so fucking cool when he’s not being a douche.
Ye is fucking cool at all times. “Being a douche” ie being ostentatious is itself a tool. He’s playing a character and offering a sort of outlet that so many people who are scared to be self-confident can relate to.
She makes a strong argument that really explains a lot to me. I think guys and girls are just so different we struggle to understand the perspective of the other gender. And talking about an entire gender instead of just one particular person hurts everyone’s feelings, making this all the more difficult to talk about. Thank you, anon.
On this day in music history: May 21, 1971 - “What’s Going On”, the 11th studio album by Marvin Gaye is released. Produced by Marvin Gaye, it is recorded at Motown Studio A, Golden World Studios (Motown Studio B), United Sound Studios in Detroit, MI, and the Sound Factory in Hollywood, CA from June 1970, March - May 1971. A concept album focusing on the subjects of poverty, drug abuse, and war, its messages will immediately resonate with the public. Following the huge success of the title track as a single, Motown will demand a full album to go with it ASAP. Recording with Motown’s studio band The Funk Brothers, the basic tracks and vocals for the album will be recorded in ten days of studio time. The initial version of the album, now known as the “Detroit Mix” is mixed by Motown engineers while Gaye is off in California filming a movie. After hearing the initial mix, Gaye will order them shelved and send for the tapes while in California. He will add additional overdubs to several tracks, and completely remix and re-sequence the album with engineer Lawrence Miles. The album will be immediately recognized by critics and the public as an important artistic musical statement upon its release, as well as being a major commercial success. It will spin off three singles including “Mercy Mercy Me” (#1 R&B, #4 Pop), “Inner City Blues” (#1 R&B, #9 Pop) and the title track (#1 R&B, #2 Pop). “What’s Going On” will spend 9 weeks at #1 on the Billboard R&B album chart, #6 on the Top 200, is certified 6x Platinum in the US by the RIAA, and is inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame in 1998.
Anonymous asked: destined for the friend zone. You have a few options: continue to be her friend and find someone else who returns your affection, bitch and complain about it, or terminate the friendship.
Anonymous asked: (3) interested or because I only see him as a friend, and he bitches about it, that’s really frustrating. I’ve been turned down by a guy friend because he didn’t see me that way, and guess what? WE’RE STILL GREAT FRIENDS. If ANYONE drops their friend because they don’t return an interest, that’s fucked up, and that person clearly wasn’t a true friend. I believe the friend zone exists. Sometimes, you’re just not that into your friend, and when he hits on you, it’s awkward. Some boys are just
Anonymous asked: (2) suck his dick. You know? My female friends are kind and supportive without expectation of sexual favors; I don’t generally distinguish between female and male friends, so it doesn’t make sense when a guy is pushy (even when it’s something as innocent as a date.) That’s not to say I will not date a friend. I have several guy friends that I wouldn’t mind becoming involved with, should the right moment (of mutual consent) arise. But if a guy friend asks me out, and I say no because I’m not...
Anonymous asked: (1)My Thoughts on the Friendzone: I suppose that the friend zone exists, but not in the stereotype that exists in a man's mind.I’m going to use myself as a personal example, since I clearly do not speak for the entirety of the female population.I believe that if a guy befriends me, if we are close, that does not entitle him to anything. If he is supportive and kind to me, I will appreciate it and, most likely, reciprocate it, but a friendship is not a guarantee that I will date my guy friend or
We all understand what the friendzone is: when a guy likes a girl, he spends time with her, “pursues a relationship” (I don’t think “hits on her” or “makes a move” really adequately describe what a guy is doing here), she rejects him, he complains that he would’ve totally had a chance if only she didn’t see him as just as friend. (And usually some comment is made about the guy’s neckbeard and/or fedora)
Obviously, this is a terrible excuse for why you were rejected and uses flawed logic. If you legitimately think that a woman only turned you down because you’re a friend, you’re wrong.
^ That was my perspective on the friendzone for years. Those were happy years. They had their ups and downs, but I slept well at night telling myself at least I’m not one of those goddam idiots who gets friendzoned and complains about it.
However, lately I’ve been hearing more and more arguments from women about the friendzone, often along the lines of “Why can’t I just have guy friends? Why do all my guy friends eventually try and hit on me?”
ARE YOU SHITTING ME
All these years, I thought I had taken the noble eightfold path and risen above the mediocrity of the friendzone and GIRLS ARE LITERALLY ARGUING AGAINST IT BY ADMITTING THAT IT IS INDEED TRUE.
Did you catch what I’m talking about? There are female people out there saying “The friendzone is stupid, misogynistic, and immature, why can’t guys just know whether or not I want to be romantically involved with them without becoming my friends or otherwise getting to know me first?”
This is the kind of bullshit my dad always prepared me for. He would always tell me “Women are different and weird, and there’s no understanding them.” And he’s right! This is the fuckery I always knew was coming.
Women whom I thought I agreed with are arguing against something’s existence WHILE PROVING THAT IT INDEED EXISTS. I don’t know if I can handle this shit.
Okay, okay. I’m cool. I’m chilling out. Hypocrisy is a thing, it exists, it’s everywhere, and it’s no one’s fault. I don’t think I even have any hard evidence that any one woman actually feels the way I described. I’m just really butthurt, and I need to chill out. Women are people too, and it’s a real dick move of me to go categorizing and blaming half the population for what is probably a fairly isolated thing.
Whatever. When I rant, I rant hard, and those rants go through filters and edits. I’m too tired to rationalize this anymore. Goodnight.
I’m trying to summarize my thoughts on this friendzone issue into a reasonable length instead some kind of protracted diatribe, but I’m just so butthurt that literally no amount of words will ever make teenage boys and teenage girls understanding each other.
