The Twitter Mandela Hall Of Shame
When the right side of history doesn’t forget.
Vandam Gaza- للتعبير عن الاوضاع المعيشية الصعبة - فاندام غزة
“I’ve lived in Gaza for a long time. And until now, I feel like im living and not living (Amr Diab). The electricity is cut off for 12 hours. I used sleep and wake and the electricity was still not on. The water comes when the electricity is off and I can’t have a shower. Despite all this, Van Damme is still not better than me…. Im sorry, we don’t have fuel here either….”

The Apollo Theater in Harlem remembers Nelson Mandela.
Saw this as I was passing by on the M60. Thanks for the heads up, Tumblr.
Fine. But the emotionally-stunted or “subnormal” adult-male audience is not just feeding on the Superhero franchises; Hollywood has had them on a bottomless diet of Sandler-sagas, Hangovers, and Seth Rogen-overloads for years. The fact that this audience exists is a cultural issue. The “infantalization of our culture" is a deeply-rooted American epidemic. It’s not Hollywood’s fault that (the majority of) our men refuse to grow up. Hollywood is simply doing what it’s built for: profiting off of them.(via kateoplis)
You can hold down a job and like comics. Wtf?
The kind of thinking that makes a distinction between thought and feeling is just one of those forms of demagogy that causes lots of trouble for people by making them suspicious of things that they shouldn’t be suspicious or complacent of.
For people to understand themselves in this way seems to be very destructive, and also very culpabilizing. These stereotypes of thought versus feeling, heart versus head, male versus female were invented at a time when people were convinced that the world was going in a certain direction — that is, toward technocracy, rationalization, science, and so on — but they were all invented as a defense against Romantic values."

Take it from one CEO that’s been there: building your business requires that you market your abilities and invest in yourself.
"I used to say ‘If you’ve had a good childhood, a happy marriage and a little bit of money in the bank, you’re going to make a lousy comedian,’" says Steinberg. "The one thing an audience always has in common with a comedian is troubles. The Yiddish word for that is tsuris You’re always putting your tsuris on stage whether you like it or not. No one is untroubled, unless they’re just, you know, an imbecile.”
For Instance: Six months before he died in a car accident, the late Robert Schimmel was interviewed by Steinberg for Inside Comedy. “Robert talked about his cancer and how he’s taken this tragic life that he was living even then, and turned it into comedy material,” Steinberg recalls. “He was very articulate in describing how that liberates people from being depressed.”
