Roxy and Jane are actually adorable
Fred Rogers ladies and gentleman!
Here are some interesting facts about him:
- He basically saved public television. In 1969 the government wanted to cut public television funds. Mister Rogers then went to Washington where he gave an amazing merely six minute speech. By the end of the speech not only did he charm the hostile Senators, he got them to double the budget they would have initially cut down. The whole thing can be found on youtube, a video called “Mister Rogers defending PBS to the US Senate.”
- “Certain fundamentalist preachers hated him because, apparently not getting the “kindest man who ever lived” memo, they would ask him to denounce homosexuals. Mr. Rogers’s response? He’d pat the target on the shoulder and say, “God loves you just as you are.” Rogers even belonged to a “More Light” congregation in Pittsburgh, a part of the Presbyterian Church dedicated to welcoming LGBT persons to full participation in the church.”
- According to a TV Guide piece on him, Fred Rogers drove a plain old Impala for years. One day, however, the car was stolen from the street near the TV station. When Rogers filed a police report, the story was picked up by every newspaper, radio and media outlet around town. Amazingly, within 48 hours the car was left in the exact spot where it was taken from, with an apology on the dashboard. It read, “If we’d known it was yours, we never would have taken it.”
- Once, on a fancy trip up to a PBS exec’s house, he heard the limo driver was going to wait outside for 2 hours, so he insisted the driver come in and join them (which flustered the host). On the way back, Rogers sat up front, and when he learned that they were passing the driver’s home on the way, he asked if they could stop in to meet his family. According to the driver, it was one of the best nights of his life—the house supposedly lit up when Rogers arrived, and he played jazz piano and bantered with them late into the night. Further, like with the reporters, Rogers sent him notes and kept in touch with the driver for the rest of his life.
Reblog and like, follow back and fangirl. Scroll again and by then it’s, like, 3:45 am…
So I’ll follow a blog, or maybe two, or three. I‘ll add a few new posts that have to do with Disney. I’ll fangirl and cry and scream and basically just wonder when will my life begin?
Then I’ll refresh my dash if I have time to spare and I’ll check my inbox, oh wait, nobody’s there. Then I’ll reblog, reblog, like I don’t have care, but wondering when will my life begin?
We all sung it don’t lie
Wednesday night, frozen will appear, just like we’ve been waiting for all year. What is it like, in Arendelle’s snow? Now that it’s frozen, it’s time to..let it go
How to start an argument on tumblr:
1. State your opinion
what the fuck did u fucking say how dare u say that
if anyone ever tells you to man up, just knock them unconscious and as they lie motionless of the ground, lean over them and whisper
I respect those people who get a lot done on their days off cause I am the absolute opposite and do nothing all day whenever I can
I’m laughing so hard is this supposed to be “impressive” or something, because it’s really just the Quadratic Formula?
WHYD IDNT SHE JSTU FACTOR IT
They couldn’t afford to hire a stunt mathematician.
uuuuum, one of the “Disney Women” is Kuzko from The Emperor’s New Grove.
Is that a problem?
Oh wait now I get what triggers are
Yeah, see, THIS is a trigger. Something that prompts a horrible flashback that makes someone go into a literal panic attack. It is NOT something that makes you slightly uncomfortable, so can we all just stop tossing that word around like it’s nothing.
thank you Wreck It Ralph
Reblogging for valuable commentary
Also, can we talk about how Felix dealt with it? He NEVER used that word again (only once in front of Ralph, never by her), there was never any talk about how she could get over it, and in their wedding they all made plans to help her with her paranoia by recognising her fears and showing she was safe by pointing guns at the window and having extra security.
A++++++ on dealing with mental issues magnificently, Wreck-It Ralph!
I’m genuinely sorry for turning this homestuck, but this is my biggest problem with Kankri. It’s not his condescending speech that’s hidden behind concern, or how much he throws away relevant discussion about things other then his problems, but the fact that he seems to genuinely not know what the crap he’s talking about. And considering he’s modeled after social justice blogs on tumblr…
