Oh my god, old Irish proverbs are the best
and my personal favourite
It’s true, it really IS difficult to choose between two blind goats.
I wanna read all the books in dirtylibrary, and I think this one was written for @mcquillanatorz
A girl is born under a curse that warps her lips into a hideous pucker. The spell can only be broken by a kiss from a lover found using Instagram.

If your children are traumatised by the sight of a fat person in a bikini, a bit of cellulite or a caesarean scar, then may I tentatively suggest that you aren’t raising them correctly. If seeing someone hairy wearing something skimpy renders you ‘unable to eat your lunch’ then I’m afraid my diagnosis is the problem is with your brain, not their body.
Sometimes I eat my feelings in pasta, but now I am worried that the pasta I eat has feelings too
Have you ever seen a more melancholy pile of pasta? Entitled Le Solitaire, this surprisingly emotive sculpture of an enormous anthropomorphic heap of noodles slumped on a little chair is the work of French sculptor Theo Mercier. In 2010 it was exhibited at the Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris.
In reality, the surreal figure is nothing more than a pile of silicone coated cords. Using two large, blue eyes and an intentional body gesture, Mercier has created a sense of vulnerability, saying that this sculpture is “The one who is showed, who is watched, he is unique and alone because he is a monster. It tells a lot about the idea of exposure.”
We hope at least one brave person went up and gave this awesome sculpture a great big hug, because we sure want to. Sometimes even noodles need a little love and reassurance.

Hey Nirvana, can you please send me an iPhone message?
Earlier today in the Sub Pop mailbag, we received an enthusiastic message from a college student running for homecoming queen. She asked for a video affirming support from our one time recording artists, Nirvana, in order to aid her campaign in becoming homecoming queen. We dressed up and obliged.
Video forthcoming with the script: "What’s up Virginia Tech? This is Nirvana! Just wanted to wish you guys a Happy Homecoming Week and good luck at the game this Saturday. LET’S GO HOAGIES!" Or something like that.
I have played on one of these, and it was freaking awesome.
