I often wonder if I will ever find anyone as attractive as mid-to-late-90s / early-2000s era chain-smoking, angst-riddled, long-haired Johnny Depp.
I know it’s silly to have idols, maybe, but I like the one I’ve picked. Amanda Palmer is flawed, narcissistic, a bit whacked, deeply emotionally unsettled and crass. She’s usually naked and makes a lot of mistakes. I love her.
When things fall apart for me, like they currently are, I have faith in what she does. She’s uncompromising and lives according only to her own schedule and pretty much exudes talent. People hate her voice, people find her abrasive, but there is nothing that makes me feel like when she plays. I love how real she is, how drunk and sloppy and charismatic and self-obsessed and beautiful and full of love.
If someone wonderful and passionate and deeply macabre can love her completely, without asking her to change, accepting that she’s possibly the most high-maintenance woman in the punk cabaret circus, then maybe there’s hope for me yet.
"i don’t support feminism because i don’t hate men"

Thoughtful underwear with hidden powers. For every pair purchased you fund 7 pads to a girl in need.
OH SHIT YOU GUYS THIS COMPANY IS MAKING UNDERWEAR THAT IS STAIN RESISTANT, ANTIMICROBIAL, AND WILL ABSORB UP TO 6 TEASPOONS OF LIQUID BUT STILL LOOKS FUCKING SEXY
AND DID I MENTION THIS PART:
For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.
AND WHY IS THAT SUCH A BIG DEAL? HERE’S WHY:
After doing some research, Agrawal says she found that more than 100 million girls in the developing world were missing a week of school because of their periods, and using things such as leaves, old rags, or plastic bags in the place of sanitary pads.
THE SIZES RUN FROM XS TO XXL AND THE PRICES ARE NOT INSANE, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN THOSE 5 FOR $10 SALES AT TARGET BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO THROW THEM OUT BECAUSE YOU MISCALCULATED YOUR FLOW AND BLED ALL OVER THEM BEFORE YOU COULD GET TO A BATHROOM
I’M SORRY FOR SHOUTING I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS
LIKE HOLY FUCKBASKET IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME
I’M SO EXCITED I JUST BOUGHT A PAIR EVEN THOUGH I’M BROKE BECAUSE YOLO SO YOU SHOULD BE ABLE GO TO SCHOOL
This is so cool.
