Friends premiered 20 years ago.

I have just spent the last 2 minutes staring at my forehead in the reflection of my iPad because of now obvious wrinkles.

and you’re still beautiful.

neil-gaiman:

Messy. I worry that for the Scots, the YES vote has become essentially a gigantic Vote of No Confidence in Westminster and the Westminster Party system, which I share. As someone who has a house in Scotland, lives in Scotland when he can, and adopted his wife’s clan name as his middle name when we married, I hope that, in the case of a YES vote, life in Scotland continues to be as good or better than it is right now; and that in the case of a NO vote, the fractures between people of different opinions heal rapidly and that Westminster’s recent offers of concessions to Scotland are real.

I don’t get a vote, which is a good thing, as I’d probably be a Don’t Know until I got to the ballot box, and would then choose based on a hundred different reasons, including how much I disliked any particular politicians and whether the sun was signing that day and whether I was particularly missing Iain Banks.

a cross-media moment.

this took me aback and i thought i’d share it here on tumblr: i posted this photo of myself and the post-posting comment i made about it got over two thousand likes on facebook. my comments never get such a huge surge of likes. i spent all yesterday thinking about why.

why?

Seeing a real face is uplifting because I can’t stand looking at my own because all the faces I see are photoshopped.

this reminds me of a comment i heard at the lorde concert last night. there were three girls behind me, probably all about 19 or 20….which is to say: her age.

one of them shrieked “FUCK!!!! LORDE IS PERFECT!!! I FUCKING HATE MYSELF!!”

and i thought….why does one have to mean the other?
