Is Angie Bowie's book worth reading?

It’s…well, it’s interesting, to say the least. On the one hand, she played an instrumental role in David’s life and career and her anecdotes and insights certainly reflect that. There’s all the sex, drugs, and rock’n’roll you could ask for–even I was like woah, tmi at some points (for example, if you don’t like seeing the words dick and rash used in the same sentence, you’re in for a fun page or two). The book is entertaining, I’ll give it that.

But holy shit is Angie full of herself. The way she tells it, every good thing that ever happened to David’s career was planned and orchestrated by her. And she has no sense of irony. She’ll detail her own sexual conquests for pages, and then bitch about David acting like a slut. She takes pride in the way she manipulated people and situations, and then she talks about what a heartless puppetmaster David is…and so on.

I snickered and rolled my eyes through the entire book and took everything she said with a massive grain of salt. But in all honesty, I had fun reading it, and I think most Bowie fans would.

I don’t keep up with Lena Dunham besides watching “Tiny Furniture" and “Girls"- how has she shown herself to be a racist?

Besides only including POC in her show (and it is hers–she’s the showrunner as well as a writer and the star, and that’s complete creative control that would let her do essentially anything she wanted) as background ~helper~ characters or ways to justify her hipster racism, she’s associated herself with assholes like Lisa Lampanelli and Lesley Arfin, and has repeatedly said some really dumb things that she either fauxpologized for or didn’t apologize at all.

She’s not like Lampanelli-racist, more of a sheltered idiot who remains willfully ignorant and doesn’t mind having friends who are actually nasty virulent bigots.

Music Stuff! You can tell a lot about someone by the type of music they listen to. Hit shuffle on your iPod, Phone, iTunes, Media Player etc and write down the first 20 songs, then pass this on to 10 people.

One rule: No skipping.

This guy I work with casualty mentioned he finished "The Twilight Saga" last night. I asked, "Books or movies." He said, "Movies," like it should have been obvious. I said, "Do you like them, or...?" He said, "I like the cars." He watched all FIVE Twilight movies FOR THE CARS.

WHAAAAAAAAAT

well. that is certainly never a reason I have heard before. Do they have…nice cars…in them?? I thought the Cullens drive Volvos??

Top 5 Hawkeye moments

Okay, I’m just doing moments from the fraction series because if I had to go back through all of them this would take like five hours.

  1. when clint is trying to convince kate to team up with him because he has all the duties that he just feels so responsible for and nothing will get him out it and big dumb goofy doesn’t know how to speak words to people 

  2. sorry but big dumb goof will be multiple moments on this list 

  3. big dummy who believes in protecting everyone from tough guys and spends all his money on buying apartment complexes to keep gangsters away and vet bills for a dog 

  4. i’m sorry i know clint is a hero and great with arrows and stuff but he’s always just a big dummy i like the dummies 

  5. SERIOUS BIG GOOFY DUMB DUMMY WHO MAKES ME SAD

star wars

  • Favourite Female: i’ll say “mara jade.” then you will sigh and say “movies only” and i will say “dorovio bold,” and you will say “who the fuck is that.” and i will say “this rebel pilot who was left on the cutting room floor in ROTJ but from what i can tell she was hella hot and badass,” and you will sigh and say “for fuck’s sake, just pick a movie character that was actually in the fucking movies.” and i will roll my eyes and say “leia, but it’s not like i have a lot of options, because the star wars movies are sadly lacking in the lady department,” and you will have to sadly agree with me. (also i’m going to keep answering some of these questions with characters from the novels and shit so too bad.)
  • Favourite Male: admiral ackbar
  • 3 Other Favourite Characters: wedge antilles, mace windu (i’m not a fan of the prequels, but i’m a fan of sam jackson playing a badass jedi who also happens to have the same initials as me), luke skywalker (in ROTJ when he’s all badass)
  • 3 OTPs: c-3po/r2-d2, jaina solo/anni capstan (read that shit and tell me it isn’t subtexted all over the damn place and i’m not just inventing lesbians again tho for real), and yeah okay han/leia obviously. oh and wes janson/derek ‘hobbie’ klivian though i’m not sure if i just brotp it or if i legitimately ship it.
  • Notp: is obi-wan/darth maul still a thing because i remember it being a thing, like, back in the early 2000s and no
  • Funniest character: wes janson in the x-wing series, and teenage ben skywalker in the legacy of the force & fate of the jedi series (which i didn’t really like, except for the parts where ben skywalker was being hilarious). in the movies i’m gonna go with yoda, his antics in ESB before luke realizes he’s actually the jedi master, and he is just fucking with luke by stealing all his shit and throwing it around, i die laughing every time
  • Prettiest character: jabba the hutt lmao (fun fact: in 6th grade i was obsessed with star wars and some annoying kids decided to start spreading the rumor that i had a crush on jabba the hutt, and i thought that was so ridiculous that i just went with it. true story.)
  • Most Annoying Character: i can’t even say jar jar binks because i don’t give enough fucks about the prequels to be truly annoyed by him. same with young anakin. um… let’s go with salacious crumb. he’s pretty annoying.
  • Most badass character: luke in ROTJ
  • Character I’d like as my BFF: chewbacca
  • Female Character I’d Marry: jaina solo
  • Male Character I’d Marry: nope
  • Character I hate/dislike/least like: jacen solo. just… fuck you. (am i still mad about ‘sacrifice’ maybe i am still mad about ‘sacrifice’ yeah ok i’m still mad about ‘sacrifice’ i don’t know if i’ll ever be over it tbh)

Shosanna Dreyfus

  • What English she had was self-taught, gleaned largely from films and books she found once she was in Paris.
  • She learned to shoot a gun from her father: one of their cows had stopped giving milk, she wandered into the barn when he was about to kill it, and he took it as a teachable moment. He was proud that she didn’t even flinch.
  • She was never much for dressing up, but that red dress had been a gift from Ada Mimieux (who had owned the theater) and was therefore special to her, and what’s more she liked the idea of going out in style, so she was determined to go all-out.
walkingcarpetemporium replied to your post: “one of my friends transferred to my school from a public school (she’d…”:

i’m always impressed by how much fancier your private school is than the one i went too. they literally made spaghetti in a trash can at my school and served it in the cafeteria.

we don’t even have a cafeteria though. we just have a few stands where you can buy food. except the food costs upwards of $7. because they all know we pay almost 20k a year to go to this school so our parents can just shit out more money for food if we’re hungry. if i want three fucking chicken nuggets i have to pay six dollars. but it doesnt matter to the school. as long as people drive lamborghinis here, they will still charge us enough to buy a full outfit at forever21 if we want something to eat.

Edward drives a Volvo to school b/c that’s like their most boring car. So there must be scenes with the cooler cars? I don’t know? Also the guy said he watched the movies over a period of 2 years which i honestly don’t know how to interpret

ahhhh that’s right. I vaguely remember that. And…well, they’re tedious in parts but not THAT tedious, wow. toshikosatos replied to your post:
