going off og matt and neil being dumb best friends they've totally gone into the kitchen and made 5 ingredient smoothies using the GROSSEST things they can find. like neil uses kevin's kale, egg whites, a bell pepper, two of andrew's brownies and frozen broccoli and it smells horrible and tastes like tar and rubbing alcohol but matt will be damned if he doesn't drink it while staring neil directly in the eyes

FFJKG THEY TOTALLY DO THIS THO?? they’re so dumb they definitely make each other eat gross things like the actual 5 year olds they are together can u imagine them going to see a movie together and matt expects neil to get them popcorn but no he gets them a packet of those chocolate covered insects and matt hates this guy but he’ll also eat bugs for him and i think that’s beautiful

I’m just sitting here minding my own business when I hear the music my kid is playing down the hall… Africa by Toto. And I’m having an extended out of body experience courtesy of this post.

I haven’t read this book yet but I love it already. Yes, that’s my namesake so imagine how cool it would’ve been if books like this existed when I was growing up.

 This re-imaging of the classic fairytale is set in the Kingdom of Lesotho so Refilwe is high up in a mountain cave instead of a tower and she has long beautiful dreadlocks.

 A big shout out to Zukiswa Wanner (who is also the founder of the Read SA campaign) and other African writers who are telling our stories and retelling the classics for the children of the continent to enjoy and identify with.

  •  REFILWE: An African retelling of Rapunzel by Zukiswa Wanner is available at Exclusive Books stores. I’m hoping that it’s also available in SeSotho, SePedi, SeTswana and  other vernacular languages.

As expected this cover is beautiful and everything my life was missing

Here’s a good Dan song to listen to today: Africa (cover) by Ninja Sex Party

Here’s a good Grumps episode to watch today:

Here’s a cool Dan fact for you today:
When John Kerry was running for president, Dan says he donated about $100 to his campaign, and still to this day (that would have been in 2013) he gets emails about him. (As a side note, Kerry ran for president in 2004, so this would’ve been the time Dan was making little to no money with the Hues. Donating $100 when you have next to nothing is a huge deal!)

Here’s a good picture of Dan to look at today:
