Mafia stories. Film studies, Movie obsessions, screenplays, colorful notes, old movies, video games, tired eyes, that noise a vinyl makes when you take it out of its sleeve, 
  • 7. do you collect anything?  I own vinyls in general, but I exclusively collect my “ holy grails” which include Frank Sinatra, The Animals, and i gotta look at my list again lmao. I apparently collect lip stains bc i cant stop buying, I collect video games, and idk, fallout stuff but not really. I own a Nick valentine portrait i won in a giveaway and a fallout 4 pocketwatch. 
  • 9. what’s a pet peeve of yours? People who are fake, people who manipulate you in any shape or form, people who use you, people who talk over you while you’re speaking and wont let you get a word in, people who think talking louder than you will make you stop talking, rude people, etc.. i literally described the same general thing lmao.
  • 10. good advice to give?  It’s okay if you thought you were friends with someone and they turned out bad for you. You don’t always see the bad in people but i promise the moment you weed that person out you get a built in bullshit detector lmao. Silence is golden. People don’t always stay in your life, sometimes they teach you a lesson. You deserve the best. Don’t let anyone make you feel worthless, don’t let anyone walk all over you, don’t let toxic people make you feel like you’re wrong when they’re guilting you because they can’t live with themselves.

This woman screaming that she was discriminated against because Michael’s didn’t have large enough bags is proof that white people are incredibly fragile

A Chicago-area Trump supporter lost her mind in a dispute over what she calls discriminatory treatment at a local Michaels. First white people came up with “white supremacy” and claimed that people of color are obsessed with identity politics. Now they complain they’re being discriminated against over the smallest of totally non-racial issues. It gets more cringe worthy when she calls the cops to complain.

Fitting for a show about those occupying society’s technological substrata, Mr. Robot’s characters are often placed at the very bottom of the frame. This leaves massive amounts of headroom that suggests a great weight hanging over their heads, and echoes their isolation: When they’re talking right to each other, they seem alone. [x]
