PLEASE READ, POSSIBLE VIRUS GOING AROUND
Okay, so this is the 2nd time that I’ve gotten this message. At first I was like “Oh yeah its just someone who’s trying to get themselves promoted or something but then I got this again and it doesn’t seem right because they changed their name to Victoria suddenly??? When I first got it it was Nathaly but this could be a virus I have no clue, I never went to the website or their tumblr because I don’t want to get any possible viruses on my computer so I might be wrong but just in case please reblog it because I don’t want anyone to get any viruses. If I’m wrong then please tell me and I’ll take this down but for now please reblog this, thank you!
UPDATE: Yeah it’s virus blogs. I’ve gotten them from two different people and their title was the same. One was “Beautiful Landscapes” and the other was “Beautiful Tattoos” and so yeah reblog this really fast before anyone gets the virus ok thanks again. The first blog that sent me this was zinokmass so watch out for zinokmass and labagaww thank you guys so much ignore the message if you get it
My little brother, adeadmanandhisfriends, is being falsely accused by somebody on Tumblr of being a sexual predator. We still don’t know why and I personally don’t know who it is yet because I don’t have access to my computer so I can’t go find the post, but if any of you see a PSA or anything about Wolf being a sexual predator, please please set the person who reblogged it straight. Please, I am begging you, reblog this and spread it around because my baby brother is under attack right now and I need the help of my followers to set the record straight and protect him from false accusations. Please you guys. My brother is a rape victim himself, and this is destroying him. Please.
I very briefly know Wolf and I can even attest that he’d never do such a thing and this is completely a disgusting defamation of his character. Rape is never funny, and it’s never okay to falsely accuse someone of such a terrible thing when they have not committed, nor would they ever commit, such actions.
reasons to let me cuddle you:
- I will stick my cold hands all over your body
- I’ll probably fall asleep on you and make cute sleep noises
- I can lay there long enough for the second coming of christ
- I will be smiling the whole time
- you’re warm and I’m not
- let me leech your heat
Someone asked for a tutorial thing a while back, so I threw this together.
ANATOMY WITH THE AVENGERS!
Oh, and Tom.
Let us not forget one of the most important things about the Universal Monsters era: The Creature From The Black Lagoon was created by a woman, Milicent Patrick.
Nearly unheard of at the time, ms Patrick is responsible for creating one of the single most recognizable characters, not only in Universal history but in all of film history. She was an incredible talent and she should be honored as such.
What’s that on your hand????? *holds it* itS ME

These ‘Gay Jeans’ Really Were Born This Way.
This crowdfunding campaign may sound like a bad April Fools joke. But it actually comes with a really poignant message.
Betabrand's 'gay jeans' look like any other pair of jeans when first purchased, but over time - through washing and general wear and tear - their true self starts to show. No, their true self starts to come out.
The five-pocket dark denim pants are, in fact, made with multi-coloured thread, so as the indigo dye over them fades, a yarn of bright colour is revealed in its place. So far, so weird, right? We’ll leave it to creator Steven B. Wheeler to explain.
"Even in early life, I was not wildly unlike any of the other boys on the playground, but as time went by, I noticed things that set me apart from the others", he told Towleroad. “The same too can be said for Gay Jeans; it takes time for them to uncover the things that makes them unique”.
"The name is a pun on the issue of science finding the ‘gay gene’ and the debate over whether or not being gay is a choice", he continues. "For these genes, it isn’t a choice. Like me, they were born this way and, like me, they’ll come out in their own time."
Sometimes it’s difficult to find the words when coming out, but with these jeans you might as well save your breath. The fabulous threads will do all the talking for you without even uttering a word. ;-)
if youre having a bad day just watch this
i bet they’re best friends now
what did I just watch
this is so great
maybe the best vine ever
