Everything Beyonce does is careful and thought out. Her entire image is perfection crafted from planning ahead. She does not ‘wing it’ or throw things into her performances and public appearances ‘just because’.

What she did at this award show was amazing, especially because of how intentional and thought out it clearly was.

Feminism is a scary word for a lot of people. Many women are afraid of calling themselves feminist because they think it implies anger, hatred of men, or a rejection of traditional femininity. 

Beyonce presented everyone watching with two distinct images of what many viewers viewed as two very different women. There is the strong, independent FEMINIST. She is the woman who likes being in control and being in the spotlight. Then there is the WIFE and MOTHER. She is soft, sweet, smiling at the husband and child you can tell she loves and values so much.

For every girl watching who was afraid to be a feminist, afraid to be powerful, because of what she thought she would lose, this is an incredible message. You can be all the things you want to be. You can be both. Feminists can have amazing happy, full lives full of both traditional and modern womanhood. 

Feminism means gender should not be a source of persecution or a restriction of your choices. Feminism mean the type of person you should be is based on what you value, not what outside forces pressure you to value because of your gender or biological sex. Shout at the top of your lungs that you are a feminist and proud. Then go and be the exact person that you want to be.

"My best day had to be the day after I wrapped Guardians of the Galaxy. I was very homesick and coming home to my wife, and my home, and to my son, who was at the time 13 months old. My wife told me there’s a chance he won’t recognize you—but that’s okay that happens all the time. He doesn’t know, he might be a little shy…"

IM GOING TO CRY

Rest in Peace, Robin Williams

paulftompkins:

One of the first comedy albums I was ever given was “Reality… What A Concept.” I loved it. I loved “Mork & Mindy.” I even loved Robert Altman’s “Popeye.” Robin Williams meant a lot to me when I was a kid. I knew nothing of drug use or depression. It never occurred to me that comedians, these magical creatures that I worshiped, ever felt anything other than the serene satisfaction derived from making people laugh.

Eventually, I started doing standup myself, and I very quickly learned that comedians were all too human. There is no less sadness in the comedy community than there is in any other workforce; that is to say, jobs are jobs and people are people and no occupation makes anyone depression-proof. This both comforts and frustrates me.

Robin Williams made me laugh so many times. So many times. When I was a kid, having problems of my own, feeling unpleasantly different from the people who populated my world, I found sanctuary watching this guy on TV who was celebrated for being a weirdo, for being an oddball, for being silly. He was praised for having a mind that produced delightful absurdities with great speed. No one told him to be quiet. No one tried to make him act like everyone else. He was a hero to me.

I had occasion to meet him once, not too long ago, and he could not have been nicer or friendlier or calmer. He was just there to watch the show that was happening that night. He wasn’t trying to get on stage; he just — still — loved comedy.

I didn’t tell him any of the things I just wrote here. No doubt, he heard similar things from countless people over his decades-long career. And it’s a colossal shame that being a meaningful presence in the lives of many people, family, friends and strangers alike, isn’t an impenetrable bulwark against despair. It’s profoundly unfair that, if he couldn’t live forever, he couldn’t at least feel able to keep going for his allotted time. I know something of depression, and how bottomless and relentless and insurmountable it feels, but I have never known the unfathomable despair that Robin Williams must have felt. I can’t even begin to imagine it.

Robin Williams will live on in shadows and light and sound, at least. He will continue to comfort weird little kids (and odd adults, for that matter) with his performances, those who know his work today and those who have yet to be born, who may experience him ten, fifty, a hundred years from now. But this is cold comfort indeed.

There will be much celebration, in the coming weeks and months, of Robin Williams’ life and career. But perhaps the best tribute to him would be if we all reached out to the troubled people in our lives and let them know that we are here for them. Because Robin Williams was there for us.

We have been doing a live YouTube show every month for the last few months as part of our year of Kickstarter-funded fun! (you can watch the archived shows on youtube). This month we are on the road like woah, so we won’t be doing a livestream show from our YouTube channel… we’ll be doing THREE SEPARATE online live-stream appearances of various kinds from conventions around the country! Tune in the following places to see us make both music and talking sounds:

TOMORROW: Friday, August 8 @ 7pm Eastern / 4pm Pacific @ http://twitch.tv/orlandonerdfest
Join us in Orlando, Florida where we will be playing at Orlando Nerdfest, a huge nerd-music festival with dozens of bands. You may want to tune in all weekend!
Thursday, August 14 @ 11am Eastern / 8am Pacific @ http://oomba.tv/
We will be at GenCon in Indianapolis, joining the official livestream for an interview and chat about what we have going on at GenCon. I bet they’ll ask us about our favorite DnD character to play! 
Friday, August 29 starting @ 8pm Pacific / 11pm Eastern @ http://www.twitch.tv/pax

We aren’t yet exactly sure what time we start, but sometime between 8pm and probably… 1am…. we will be live on the PAX twitch channel for our mainstage concert show. The production of the video is usually great, and we highly recommend not reading the comments and instead enjoying the music without input from the trolls on the Internet. Also playing that night: Triforce Quartet and Paul & Storm!

See you on the Internet, friends! We’ll be back to our normally scheduled Youtube shows in September! If you want to request a song or ask an advice question for our YouTube show, go to bit.ly/chatDC. We will announce the date of our next livestream show on Twitter, Facebook and especially our EMAIL LIST.

In the parking lot, Veronica dialed Mac.
‘How hard do you think it’d be to hack into the databases of a major research university?’
Mac hesitated. ‘Since you’re asking me on a cell phone, in front of God and the NSA—impossible.’
‘Okay, fair enough.’
