Jason Alexander Was Confronted By A Pro-Gun Activist. His Response Was Like Nothing I’ve Ever Heard.

Jason Alexander — best known as George Costanza from the popular TV show “Seinfeld” — is a pretty thoughtful guy in real life. And he’s totally happy to wax politics, even with people he may not agree with.

Here, Alexander shares an interesting story from the campaign trail, when he challenged a gentleman to think a little more deeply about what he stands for. His story actually got me thinking about the issue in a new light.

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. He died at 36 in 1901, and the handsome little devil suffered from dwarfism. Born into the aristocracy, he always felt like an outcast, and instead of living up to their hoity-toity ways, he spent his time in art cafés cavorting with prostitutes and artists. Indeed, he even was portrayed in the modern Moulin Rouge with Nicole Kidman. But he himself was an extraordinarily talented print-maker, painter, and drawer. Incredibly prolific, talented, and inspired, his character sketches and portraits are beyond beautiful. I have SUCH a crush on this short little man. 

Toulous-Lautrec is basically the real world version of Tyrion Lannister. 

And he was an integral character in Christopher Moore’s Sacre Blue.

When you look at these drawings, try to imagine "Let It Go" being sung by Helena Bonham Carter.

What If ‘Frozen’ Were a Tim Burton Movie?

Beautiful. I watched Frozen recently, and thought it was just ok. This, though, if be all in for.

“I think a lot of people don’t understand that when we talk about these issues—blackface, rape jokes, the appropriation of marginalized cultures, and so on—we are having an ethical conversation, not a legal one. There is no thought police. No one’s coming to your house and carting you off to Insensitivity Prison. But you, as a person living on this planet, get to make a choice whether you want to hurt people or help people. Whether you want to listen or shut people out. I can’t imagine why you’d choose “defensive shithead” over “nice lady capable of empathy,” but okey dokey.”

Okey dokey.

This is the best thing I’ve read today.

“There will be little rubs and disappointments everywhere, and we are all apt to expect too much; but then, if one scheme of happiness fails, human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we make a second better: we find comfort somewhere.” ― Jane Austen, Mansfield Park 

This was a really nice, satisfying moment from Girls.#girls #lena dunham
