LA is sickening sometimes. Literally sat and watched Justin Bieber’s entourage pick girls and deny girls to go back to his apartment after the club last night. Girls were literally told they weren’t pretty enough or not good enough. Some were crying and some ditched their friends who weren’t selected. So disgusting. I had to go to his stupid ass apartment and get my keys from MY friend and his scrawny ass bodyguard had the nerve to tell me “You don’t live here” and I said “BITCH, you don’t either. You couldn’t afford this fucking rent. Get out of my face.” Being from Missouri, I have never in my LIFE seen women treated so blatantly like a piece of fucking meat or pussy ass men who THINK they are the celebrity they are “protecting” waiting in the bushes for Justin’s leftovers. I wanted to sock his bodyguard in the fucking face. There is nothing worse than reading about shit and hoping it’s fake and then seeing with your own eyes how fucked up shit actually is. Girls: Do NOT ever sacrifice your dignity and pride for some random ass person who does not give two shits about you beyond your vagina. It is not that serious and you are worth MORE. If any girl from last night is reading this: you are BEAUTIFUL, you looked BOMB AS SHIT and no little midget fuck in a suit that looks like he just auditioned for Men In Black 4 has the RIGHT to tell you otherwise. Have a blessed fucking Saturday!

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

I do know some of you find the wrangling about sources a bit tiresome but in case you haven’t noticed, I’m pretty super into this and I like talking about books :D As a sop to those who find the last few posts a bit on the dry side, here’s a link to all posts with medieval reaction images (keeping in mind some are NSFW), and there may or may not be a “medieval farts" tag.

Which is honestly the great thing about Medievalist activities…you get the best of both worlds.

(p.s. discarding images is a great blog to follow for the truly weird in medieval art.)

Me at LC14 where the Atlas was launched. To the right of my head is the iconic Kennedy Space Center Vehicle Assembly Building.

Yesterday I went out to Cape Canaveral Air Force Base to see the sites and get some information for my TV project, Detonation, which is about the Atlas rocket, America’s first nuclear intercontinental ballistic missile.  This is me on top of the launch pad where the first Atlas was launched, and where four of the Mercury 7 astronauts were launched.  The dome structure in the background is the blockhouse where all the launch controls were located.  Even further in the background you can see the launch structure where the next Delta launch is scheduled to happen in november (they had the booster engines up!), and to the right of my head is Kennedy Space Center’s VAB, where they’ve built everything from the Saturn V to the Space Shuttles and current Atlas V rockets.  Not only did I get to look at technical manuals and launch procedures that 50 years ago were top secret documents, I got a personal tour of the sites and what’s currently out at CCAFB (for security reasons, you have to get clearance to be allowed on by yourself, but you can get on as part of a tour group from Kennedy Space Center).
This just goes to show the kind of stuff you can get access to if you’re really dedicated to your historical research- you can get your hands on primary documents from museums and archives if you ask.  I had a fantastic time and learned a ton.  If I’m super incredibly lucky and word really hard, maybe some day in the future I’ll be back out filming here as the executive producer of Detonation!
