PRAISE BE

When I worked at a fast food restaurant, I did a social experiment.
One day, I asked “do you want a girl toy or a boy toy?” No one went against gender roles.
The next day, it was “do you want a doll toy or a car toy?” Boys got dolls. Girls got cars.
Vocabulary is important.

cyfrostan challenged me to take a “Selfie of Selflessness” a while ago, and it took me some time to figure out how I wanted to approach it, but here it is: my selfless selfie. I went with a more literal and less technically correct use of the word “selfless” and tried to create a picture of myself that doesn’t actually have me in it. This isn’t just a collection of my favorite stuff - every item in this picture either is or represents something or someone that had a hand in shaping me into the person I am today. Everything here has a story behind it, and together those stories form a rough outline of me - a selfless selfie, if you will. Feel free to ask about anything in there that makes you curious, and I’d really love to see what all of your selfless selfies might look like. It’s a cool experience, gathering all the things that mean the most to you into one place and reflecting on all the memories they contain.
Now I think I’m supposed to pass a challenge along to buglbug, so… I challenge her to create something that embodies the phrase “killing time”. Do with that what you will.

Ok, so I was planning to do my ranty thing, but screw that for now. What’s with, the pig, the mug and the notebook with the illuminati looking symbol behind it?

The background is awful and ugh I don’t know why I spent so much time on this fuck

Okay but this is actually gorgeous.

Indeed. And would you stop putting most of your comment in the tag section? It’s counter-productive and nigh-impossible to copy-paste.

I put comments in the tag section when I want to ramble on past my main point but I don’t want to clutter up the post itself too much. That way people can still see it if they follow me, but only the main point I wanted to make will stick to the post when it gets reblogged.

1. This is already way longer than your previous post plus tags combined.2. That last statement in tags is dowright false, I wanted to and I couldn’t. I dunno what that is, I used to be able to, but now even if the tags are the only thing highlighted if I attempt to copy-paste it pastes the current number of notes.

1. That’s okay, I’m not expecting anyone else to reblog this version. It’s just you and me chattin’ at this point.
2. You can’t do it from your dash anymore, which is a pain, but if you click through to the person’s blog you can copy ‘em there the usual way.

It’s still a pain in the arse IMO.Well, chatting with my friends on tumblr is just about the best use of time I spend on this site. It doesn’t happen to me nearly often enough tho (maybe because tumblr apparentl eats every other comment I make). Oh that reminds me, there is that selfie post of your I was supposed to reply to, I still have it here somewhere.

“I think somehow the culture has taught us or we’ve allowed the culture to teach us that the point of living is to get as much as you can and experience as much pleasure as you can, and that the implicit promise is that will make you happy. I know that’s almost offensively simplistic, but the effects of it aren’t simplistic at all.”
— David Foster Wallace (via wordpainting)

This quote seems to imply that “what culture taught us” is a false premise about happiness. I feel like that kind of argument would depend heavily upon agreed definition of pleasure.

For me life is about figuring out how to be happy. My life goal is to make it so that people who come into my life in some way are better off for it.

So my brother, Jon, is housesitting for some friends and they have three adorable dogs — a pit bull/beagle mix named Remy and two Alaskan sled dogs named Bigfoot and Tal. He tried to take some pictures of them to show people on Facebook. Tal struck a majestic pose

Remy obligingly made a goofy face

But Bigfoot is crazy and she wouldn’t hold still, so…

the picture of Bigfoot turned out all blurry. I guess it comes with the name.

I want to go to this exact point and run around it saying “I’m in Sweden!” I’m in Finland!” “I’m in Norway!” until I get tired
i aspire to great things in life

According to Google Maps, that point is in the middle of a small lake.

So we’ll do it in January when it’s frozen.

actually that’s why they’ve helpfully dropped a big-ass cement block with a bridge surrounding it in the middle of the lake: for the express purpose of doing what OP aspires to do
