the rent is too damn high!

Words/phrases you should never say to a musical theater kid (unless you want to see them get lit af)

“Hello.”

“What’s your name?” 

(Bonus: easy way to find out whether they’re a Les Mis person or a Hamilton person)

“How many minutes are there in a year?”

“Life’s a bitch.”

“Downtown.”

“I’m changing my major.”

“Rent is too damn high.”

“Satisfied.”

“All I ask.”

“Popular.”

“Sugar, butter, flour.”

“For good.”

Of course McMillan lost the vote by a lot, but he knew he had something special. He ran for mayor in 2013, this time spending someone else’s life savings on his own surprisingly competent hip-hop music video. The video opens with J-Mills watching the news, flabbergasted that the rent is still too damn high, goddamn it! It’s as if all of his efforts were for naught! He gets so pissed, he takes it to the streets, and to a punching bag, all while wearing various combinations of suits and ties.

After trying for the governorship again (and starring in his fair share of D-level commercials), McMillan supposedly quit politics and offered the party, trademarked slogan and all, for sale. Maybe the fame was getting to him, or maybe it was because shortly after he went viral it came out that, um … he hadn’t been actually paying rent for years. That would be like if the President went golfing his first month in office, after complaining that the previous President was golfing too much! Haha! See, ‘cause it would be ironic!

Speaking of, McMillan endorsed Donald Trump for President, because a man who would never give a dime to a homeless veteran outside his own hotel was apparently “the only one” supporting veterans.

5 Insane Follow-Ups To Famous Viral Internet Stories

Every night for the past year or so, Adriana and Omar Chavez have slept in an RV parked in East Palo Alto, a downtrodden community in Silicon Valley.

On a recent morning before sunrise, they emerged on to the empty street. Omar showed his phone to his wife: 7.07am. “Shall I wake up the girls?” he said, his breath visible in the freezing air.

He headed inside to rouse their three daughters, huddled together in the low-ceilinged bed just above the driver’s cab, and ready them for school.

In most places, the Chavez family would be an exception. But in the school district that includes East Palo Alto, located amid the extraordinary wealth generated by the tech industry, their plight is not uncommon.

Remarkably, slightly more than one-third of students – or 1,147 children – are defined as homeless here, mostly sharing homes with other families because their parents cannot afford one of their own, and also living in RVs and shelters. The district is being squeezed from every side: teachers, administrative staff and even principals have housing woes of their own.

Cooper’s - Wrong

Chapter 1


Her back slammed hard up against the brick wall, she winced at the pain that rushed down her spine. The pain, however, was soon overcome with a torturous pleasure when she felt his arousal pushing against her centre. Her legs wrapped tightly around his waist, her dress up around her thighs. She let out a not so soft moan. She mewled in his ear, as his mouth left harsh kisses along her neck.

I love how in Defenders, Trish comments on the rent being cheap in NYC. Like, it's so bad living there in the MCU, THE RENT IS *NOT* TOO DAMN HIGH for once.

LOL! Yes, I loved that line, too. Welcome to New York, home of the Abomination and Hulk tearing up Harlem, Chitauri invasions, ferrys breaking in half, The Hand, and an underground alien’s weapon ring, all built atop dragon bones that carry the secret to immortality, we do so hope you enjoy your stay. :D

Sploot: Damn….this baby is cute….I didn’t even know you were expecting.

Reese: I wasn’t. Turns out I’m capable of implanting babies in other people…it’s a long story.

Sploot: Damn, ain’t that a plot twist!

Reese: Yeah….so what’s going on, Sploot?

Sploot: Well I went through this really shit break-up a couple months ago, and I couldn’t afford to pay rent alone….I make a bit as a DJ, but rent in the city is too high.

Reese: Why don’t you move back in with your Mom?

Sploot: She’s replaced me with some other alien girl that has a husband….she thinks I’m a failure.

Reese: That’s weird. Thought I knew all the aliens around here. Is that alien girl…by any chance, Stella Terrano? 

Sploot: I don’t know, she’s all pretty and posh and shit. Total snob.

Reese: Sounds like her. She’s the Mother of my baby. She refuses to see her.

Sploot: Damn, what a bitch. Looks like we have the same enemy, Reese.  

“the rent is too damn high” has never resonated with me more than trying to not live with my shitty parents and every studio apt. is like 500+ a month

I'm writing a NA romance, and I just realized I may be straining to meet the requirements of the Bechdel test. I have several female characters, including my protagonist, but so much of the plot revolves around her relationship with men. Do you have any tips? Should I maybe add an unrelated subplot?

You must remember that the Bechdel test is not the height of everything and on top of that you are writing a romance, where your main focus is going to be on said romance. In order to meet the requirements of the Bechdel test, you only have to have two female characters speak once about something that is not a dude. That’s it! If you have a quick conversation about how the rent is too damn high or a five minute exchange with her mom about Christmas, you have passed the test.

The Bechdel test is a more appropriate bar for a summer blockbuster that has female leads together and a attacking villain and yet somehow they only talk about a relationship with a dude, if they talk at all. You’re dealing with a very different form of fiction that is solely focused on relationships! Relax, and focus on making your characters the best they can be. You haven’t failed anything!
