i think about that scene in community when abed condemns the media’s portrayal of “vaguely autistic detectives” (almost all of whom are white men) all the time like do you realize how important that was it was an autistic character of color calling out ableism in a show created by a real autistic person on a mainstream network sitcom that was a revolutionary moment in the history of television

Michelle, Tyrel, and Monica (not pictured) are the folks behind all the support emails, Tumblr, Facebook and Instagram posts, blog posts, and featured playlists at 8tracks

We like salted caramel ice-cream, mate tea, jolly ranchers and almond croissants. But no, we don’t take candy bribes to feature your playlist here.

All you have to do is email us at support@8tracks.com, put "Feature my playlist!!!" (with 3 exclamation marks, no more, no less) in the subject line, and tell us the story behind making the playlist and a bit about you.

We’d love to hear about what inspires you to make playlists.

Community Will Have to Continue On Without Shirley

There’s so much sadness in this story: Nicole Yvette Brown has announced that she will not be joining the show on Yahoo! in order to take care of her ailing father. That’s just heartbreaking on every level.

Brown to TV Guide:

My dad needs daily care and he needs me. The idea of being away 16 hours a day for five months, I couldn’t do it. It was a difficult decision for me to make, but I had to choose my dad.

… [Dan Harmon] has been so wonderful about it all. He told me, ‘Yvette, I’m praying for your dad.’

… I’m still Community’s biggest fan and I’ll still live Tweet episodes. It’s very bittersweet. I can take care of my dad but won’t be with my TV family. I don’t want the fans to worry; it’s going to be fine. Greendale is the heart of the show, not any particular character. Even if characters come and go, the heart of Greendale remains.

Brown also said she’s left on good terms and is open to making a guest appearance, it’s just that being a regular on a single-camera show is not possible for her current circumstances.


If a man never draws near to God through the blood and body of Christ, allowing the Spirit of Holiness (the Holy Spirit) to make him the love that is selfless, tomorrow will be yesterday. Yesterday’s pain will carry on into tomorrow.

Going to church and hanging around Christian community doesn’t make us Christian, wanting to be alone with Him for the one and only reason of knowing Him, to become like He is makes us Christian. The only purpose of having a relationship with God is to become that very same love. :)

"Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love." —1 John 4:7-8
