The gentle pull of a tide that rolls over and over again and by the sheer nature of its essence it becomes an indestructible will- ripping out sand- eroding what was before it- without a care… a transformational monster-becoming the madness and frenzy of a truly bulletproof wave. I’m not just here for your love, I’m here for all of the love. An overdose of dopamine- we are living inside of M A  N   I    A right now. the never sleeping, never blinking- caught forever in the sunshine riptide. -pw

Welcome to M A  N   I    A - a Fall Out Boy LP. Here’s act #1 “Young and Menace” - video + download/stream.

M A  N   I    A arrives in full September 15th (expect many surprises before then). The M A  N   I    A Tour begins in the U.S. on October 20th. Pre-order the album through our webstore by Sunday night to get a pre-sale code to purchase tickets/VIP packages before anyone else on Monday at 10am local time. To make things easier, and as a thank you to the early birds (helping you catch that 🐛), bundles are being discounted from now through Sunday night. Starting on Monday, bundle prices will go up.

p.s. Chicago, we didn’t forget about you on the tour. We’re planning something special 💜

Here’s what really grinds my gears about Taylor Swift’s trial.

As a woman we are conditioned to almost expect this kind of behavior from men. So when a man grabbed Taylor’s ass, she didn’t go to the police (knowing the case was weak), she had him thrown out of the arena in Denver, CO and called his boss to inform them of how this man was representing KYGO.. She then gets blamed for his firing as if sexual assault isn’t a good enough reason to be fired. He then sues her for defamation of character in attempts to take money from her, nearly 4 million to be exact. Make no mistake his intentions in suing her was hoping she’d make a plea deal because she wouldn’t want or be able to sit through an eight day trial, which they maliciously extended by calling more witnesses than ever needed. But instead of taking the easy way out, she stood strong and counter sued for assault and battery, resulting in 1 dollar. It’s almost unheard of for a celebrity of her caliber to sit through this long of a trial. But damn I admire her for it. Because this guy has proven to be serious scum. He just wants money from her and I’m so fucking disgusted by this whole thing.

I’m disgusted by how a man assumes he has a right to a woman’s body.

I’m disgusted by how this man is blatantly trying to acquire money from her.

I’m disgusted by how the public is turning this into a fucking media circus and camping on the sidewalks like it’s a fucking concert. And taking her photo and treating this law suit over sexual assault like a fucking meet and greet.

And I’m so disgusted by how the media (FUCK YOU TMZ) leaked a SEALED PHOTO OF A SEXUAL ASSAULT AS IF ITS NO BIG DEAL BECAUSE IT IS TAYLOR SWIFT AND SHES NOT A PERSON I GUESS?? ?? Because if it was any other victim, there is a code within the media, and they wouldn’t post that shit or even their name.

And IM SO DISGUSTED WITH HOW SUDDENLY EVERY FEMINIST ON GODS GREEN MOTHER FUCKING EARTH IS SILENT WHEN A MAN GRABS A WOMAN BECAUSE THE WOMAN IS TAYLOR FUCKING SWIFT

FUCK THE WORLD YO

self-care masterpost: clean speeches edition

(psa 1: this was inspired by Kara’s aka tasyoungreckless tumblr post, I just thought it might be cool to add a few more to the list

psa 2: I also included video links to the speeches if I could find them because I personally feel Taylor’s words more if I’m watching a video)

27 life lessons
  1. your heart mends itself over time–be patient
  2. you have also hurt people
  3. you will grow as a person more in your twenties than any other time in your life so enjoy it
  4. life is not all about making other people happy–sometimes you come first
  5. learn to love yourself as a whole no matter what always–if you don’t life is going to be far too difficult
  6. live for the little things
  7. don’t expect respect if you’re not respectful
  8. water your own damn lawn–it isn’t that the ‘grass is greener on the other side’…it’s literally that you’re not fucking paying attention to your own lawn. water YOUR OWN DAMN LAWN. 
  9. high school really didn’t mean shit
  10. forgive those you never receive apology from–you’re not a coward, it allows you to move on
  11. never ever get hammered and smoke a joint–ever again (hard lesson to learn at 21)
  12. never be afraid to ask for help
  13. make sure you are the right type of person before dictating others
  14. if you never see the positivity it’s never there–when you focus on nothing but the negative there is absolutely no way you can have a positive life
  15. take chances because literally the only thing i regret is not doing. not being active. not going and getting. 
  16. take care of your health in your younger years. don’t just start in your later years. take care of yourself all the time
  17. eat the fucking cake or the cookie or the candy or whatever. eat it. like you literally only live so long. just don’t eat it all
  18. do way more things you love
  19. fall in love
  20. fall in lust and watch yourself break but then watch how well you come back together
  21. take that shitty job
  22. don’t take that really good job
  23. do things that make you uncomfortable
  24. get a dog
  25. fall out of love
  26. be proud of yourself
  27. fucking just live your life. who fucking cares? go against everything your family wants out of you and just…go. do. see. feel. listen. just live your life. because at the end of the day it is YOUR life and you’re allowed to live it as you see fit. so just do that. stop being scared of disappointing someone.
