I have an incredibly wild attraction to the Qunari. They are pretty much what I would look for in a man, Big strong built and easily bent to my will with logical words. I’m 100% positive they would make wild lovers considering how emotionally repressed they are in public around other members of the Qun. That makes them perfect.
Six young actors gathered on a Hollywood soundstage on May 4, 1994. The six eyed each other warily, made small talk, shared smokes outside the stage door and reveled in the good fortune of being chosen for the pilot for a new series called Six of one. “That day was really strange, I was kind of like, ‘Hi, I don’t know who you are, but hopefully we’ll be working together for the next 12.000 years’.” recalled Matthew Perry.
Columbia student will carry her mattress until her rapist exits school September 2, 2014
While most students at Columbia University will spend the first day of classes carrying backpacks and books, Emma Sulkowicz will start her semester on Tuesday with a far heavier burden. The senior plans on carrying an extra-long, twin-size mattress across the quad and through each New York City building – to every class, every day – until the man she says raped her moves off campus.
“I was raped in my own bed,” Sulkowicz told me the other day, as she was gearing up to head back to school in this, the year American colleges are finally, supposedly, ready to do something about sexual assault. “I could have taken my pillow, but I want people to see how it weighs down a person to be ignored by the school administration and harassed by police.”
So Sulkowicz joined a federal complaint in April over Columbia’s mishandling of sexual misconduct cases, and she will will hoist that mattress on her shoulders as part savvy activism, part performance art. “The administration can end the piece, by expelling him,” she says, “or he can, by leaving campus.”
As painful as I know the constant reminder of attending school with her rapist must be, I’m glad she won’t be the only one forced to remember. I hope the rapist drops out immediately…or better yet, I hope he faces the justice he deserves.
ive been meaning to make work-related comics forever, so enjoy some choice movie title bastardizations.
(these all actually, seriously, happened, with no humor or awareness on the part of the customer at the time as far as I could tell. so, yes, someone actually asked for a ticket to “Detergent” with a straight face.)
