you ever just want to hold a character

cradle their head in your hands

speak in a soothingly quiet sort of voice

"you deserve so much more

I want to do this with real actors too…

Guardian and Washington Post win Pulitzer prize for NSA revelations

guardian:

The Guardian and the washingtonpost have been awarded the highest accolade in US journalism, winning the Pulitzer prize for public service for their groundbreaking articles on the National Security Agency’s surveillance activities based on the leaks of Edward Snowden.

The award, announced in New York on Monday, comes 10 months after the Guardian published the first report based on the leaks from Snowden, revealing the agency’s bulk collection of US citizens’ phone records. Full story

Quote
"A study, to appear in the Fall 2014 issue of the academic journal Perspectives on Politics, finds that the U.S. is no democracy, but instead an oligarchy, meaning profoundly corrupt, so that the answer to the study’s opening question, “Who governs? Who really rules?” in this country, is:
 
“Despite the seemingly strong empirical support in previous studies for theories of majoritarian democracy, our analyses suggest that majorities of the American public actually have little influence over the policies our government adopts. Americans do enjoy many features central to democratic governance, such as regular elections, freedom of speech and association, and a widespread (if still contested) franchise. But, …” and then they go on to say, it’s not true, and that, “America’s claims to being a democratic society are seriously threatened” by the findings in this, the first-ever comprehensive scientific study of the subject, which shows that there is instead “the nearly total failure of ‘median voter’ and other Majoritarian Electoral Democracy theories [of America]. When the preferences of economic elites and the stands of organized interest groups are controlled for, the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.”
 
To put it short: The United States is no democracy, but actually an oligarchy."

US Is an Oligarchy Not a Democracy, says Scientific Study | Common Dreams

If we had a truly independent and adversarial press in my country, this would be a big news story, but they still haven’t found that plane, so … whaddayagonnado right?

It’s funny how movie producers will say “no one wants to see a movie exactly like the book so we have to change it to make it interesting for them” when you would never catch a book fan saying ” that movie was too much like the book, I hated it”

This pen literally writes forever 

Pininfarina is well-known for designing some of the sexiest cars ever created for companies like Ferrari and Alfa Romeo, but who knew that they also put their own distinctive mark on everyday objects like pens?
Taking its styling cues from Pininfarina’s own Cambiano concept car, the sleek 4.Ever Pininfarina Cambiano pen is handmade in Italy from aluminum with an elegant wood insert, but just as with Pininfarina’s car designs, there’s some serious high-tech innovation going on under the hood.
Instead of using ink like a pen or graphite like a pencil, the tip of the 4.Ever Cabiano is made from a special metal alloy called Ethergraph. This lays down a fine line on the paper much like a pencil, only this line is permanent like the ink left by a ballpoint pen. The real trick, though, is the tip itself won’t wear out, and will continue to write forever.


Epic!

The One Pen!
