Not Iambic….Do Not Accept…
These tags I’ll pop, and boast in rhyming verse
that what I wear puts swagger in my gait;
though twenty shillings have I in my purse,
my self-esteem and manhood both inflate
when lofty furs I purchase for a cent.
Thy grandpa’s clothes are worthy salvage, though
they smell a trifle musty. Still, I spent
much less to dress myself from head to toe.
To save or not to save? The question’s moot.
I’ll never give my coin to high-street crooks.
These dusty shelves will yield their hidden loot
to those, like me, more frugal in their looks.
Like ancient coins washed up on distant shores,
I’ll find my treasures in these thrifty stores.
- Macklemore, “Thrift Shoppe”

ITS IN IAMBIC PENTAMETER. SWEET JESUS THIS IS MY NEW FAVORITE THING.
Too impressive to pass by.
First trailer for Arrested Development - Season 4!
Oh my god.
Meet the Beardlsey family, who decided to dress up as Tobias Fünke from Arrested Development this past Halloween. Yes — all of them. Mother Autumn (Mrs. Featherbottom) explains:
A lot of people have asked how we got our kids to do it. I don’t really know why they do it, they just do. Like I said, the show is part of our family, and has taught us that family is the most important thing (unless of course you mean of the things we eat, in which case it’s breakfast).

Oh my god.
Called “Angels in America” a “fruit salad of modern epic theatre” on an exam and am only now realizing why that was a poor word choice.
This is so entertaining to me.
