so early september i got a pixie nespresso machine and was super excited. It’s not even mid october and the machine has been acting up for the last 2 weeks. It’s not dripping the coffee correctly/water gets stuck/drip is not complete.
so now I’m just like a dumb airhead trying to figure out…
the struggle is so real
But wouldn’t a pug having hiccups be adorable and hilarious and not even a problem?
More Macklemore, less Robin Thicke.
And yet a huge percentage of Tumblr hates him. Not trying to be confrontational, but could someone please explain to me why this is?
Because he is a straight white guy and Tumblr isn’t always right.
Yup. A lot of people like to ignore all the good things he does simply because he is part of the privileged. Never mind that he flat out acknowledges this in Same Love. (“I may not be the same, but that’s not important.”)
BLESS YOUR SOULS.
BLESS YOUR FUCKING SOULS.
I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT STAND THAT FUCKING A LOT OF TUMBLR HATES MACKLEMORE.
BECAUSE HONESTLY, HE WAS EVERYTHING THEY WERE COMPLAINING WHITE PEOPLE AREN’T AND NOW THAT THEY GOT A FUCKING ROLEMODEL THEY SUDDENLY COMPLAIN?????? BECAUSE HE’S WHITE?????
Macklemore grew up privileged, yes, but he understands the inequality and the disturbing gap between rich and poor. He has a song called White Privilege:
"Hiphop started off in a block that I’ve never been to
To counter act a struggle that I’ve never even been through
If I think I understand just because I flow too
That means I’m not keeping it true, nope.”
"But as I’m blessed with the privilege, they’re still left with the scars"
AND HAVE YOU HEARD HIS SONG CLAIMING THE CITY???
"I grew up on Capitol Hill,
With two parents and two cars.
They had a beautiful marriage, we even had a swing set in our yard.
My mom didn’t have a job, because my dad made enough money that we could live comfortably and he could support us.
Now, he commute to Tacoma, so we knew we be good.
But then I realized everybody looked just like me in my neighborhood.
I go to school, which was diverse.
But indeed us, I got sandwiches and Capri Suns well my friends ate their free lunch.
It’s crazy trying to look back, cause when I was growing up
I didn’t understand the fact was there’s something called a social status.
And my black friends wanted my financial bracket.
And then my city’s divided,
From neighborhood to neighborhood
We’re polarized but we claim we’re progressive.
The police shoot in the hood but never once in my residence.
As a white person been shot at we’d stopped in a Lexus.
And to think that we have claimed that so much has changed”
OH GOODNESS ME, HE’S SUCH AN ASSHOLE. HE’S SO PRIVILEGED GOD.
HOW ABOUT A WAKE???
"Don’t wanna be that white dude, million man marchin’
Fighting for our freedom that my people stole
Don’t wanna make all my white fans uncomfortable
But you don’t even have a fuckin’ song for radio
Why you out here talkin race, tryin’ to save the fuckin’ globe
Don’t get involved with the causes in mind
White privilege, white guilt, at the same damn time
So we just party like it’s nineteen ninety nine
Celebrate the ignorance while these kids keep dying.”
Tumblr needs to hop down off it’s high fucking horse and instead of turning against a potential role model and ally to all that they’ve been fucking preaching about JUST BECAUSE HE’S PRIVILEGED AND WHITE, maybe make him an icon because he’s not rapping about disrespecting women. He’s making a small change. But because he grew up with a well structured family environment and he was able to afford everything he desired, he’s suddenly the enemy.
Read the pictures in reverse from bottom to top and then you’ll see the other side of the argument.
Not really, because I can still raise the point that it’s bullshit to hate on him for wanting to raise awareness of issues that don’t necessarily plague him. We can’t hate the privileged when they actually WANT to help people and raise awareness. Maybe if more white people openly cared about racism or more straight people cared about queer issues or more men cared about women’s rights these problems would be a lot easier to solve. So no, Macklemore’s a good guy. You don’t have to like his music, he can be corny sometimes, but he’s a solid dude who just wants his music to MEAN SOMETHING. ESPECIALLY in rap we need to encourage that.
PLEASE DON’T TAKE OFFENSE AT MY COMMENT I REALLY LIKE MACKLEMORE I’M JUST TRYING TO EXPRESS AN ALTERNATE VIEW POINT AND EXPAND THE DISCUSSION THAT DOESN’T HAPPEN IF YOU SHUT ME DOWN OKAY? OKAY.
Hi. So I’m responding to motherfickles comment about how Macklemore is a rollmodel and what magrinalized groups (I’m guessing she meant POC but idk) had been complaining white weren’t.
The thing is, black people (I’m saying black people because I am a black female but this probably applies for POC in general) don’t want a roll model that’s everything we’ve been complaining white people aren’t. What most black people want is to be able to have some of the privilege that white people have. We don’t want a roll model, we want to be able to improve as a people and get to a point where white privilege isn’t a thing, because everyone is treated equally regardless of race. What it seems like to me is that motherfickle was peddling Macklemore to be the stereotypical white man that comes and rescues and saves the poor POC, which, my dear friend, is an example of white privilege (or more like white people being ashamed of their privilege and reaching out a momentary hand to POC). What I’m saying is, would your argument be the same if Macklemore was black or latino or Indian? Probably not. (I sincerely hope it would be, though).
I love Macklemore’s music because, like the person above me pointed out, his music means something. And I think it’s great that he’s bringing attention to problems that marginalized groups face, and just because he could be seen as a “roll model” that doesn’t mean POC want him to be.
That’s my two cents, please don’t go giant squid of anger on me.
I only barely know who this is so ignoring all of this serious talk and just saying oxycotton?? Really?
hot topic has some cool stuff but its embarrassing just walking in that store tbh
thank you so much for putting this into words
Walk into hot topic like yo wuddup im not a scene kid
My boyfriend still buys cds so everytime we’re at a mall (incredibly rare now since none are actually really close to us) we go in and it makes me feel really old to be in there.
THIS SATANIC GODDAMN THING IS REAL AND I AM UNREASONABLY ANGRY ABOUT IT
No no no no no no no.
I’m sorry, if you’re too stupid to make eggs in a pan, you don’t get to have a horrible egg-dog on a wooden stick like it’s some kind of carnival food. This product is a crime against gastronomy, and I want to find and destroy each and every example of it.
THE TOP COMMENT ON THAT VIDEO OMG
the pessimist and the optimist
Actually crying here
I had seen pictures of this before but seeing the gif of the egg popping out is horrifying for some reason.
So it’s summertime. It’s hot, and chances are most of you have your AC running a lot. But do you know the sheer filth living within it?
I have a regular old window unit. Doesn’t seem too special. If you live in an apartment, you probably have one too.
But when was the…
Just did this. Mine isn’t too bad because I did it fairly recently but I do always forget about it.
IF GUYS ARE FLIRTING WITH YOUR GIRLFRIEND IT IS BECAUSE THEY ARE GETTING A REPLY. DUH DUH DUHHHHHH I CAN’T
From experience, this is not true all the time.
My girlfriend attempted to hold both of her cats at once, it deteriorated quickly.
So proud of how far Ive come, not stopping now! Finally not ashamed to show my face!
If someone wants to lose weight and works hard and succeeds, that’s great but I’m going to be honest that the “Finally not ashamed to show my face” part of this makes me super depressed. I hope that this girl can learn to love herself since you should never be ashamed of yourself just because of how you look.
