Fun #guysnight! Bought more #comics than I should have, learned to play #pokemon, and #jersey #diner food.
“I’m a children’s librarian.”
“Do you like books, working with children, or both?”
“Definitely both. I’ve always been a heavy reader. I’m interested in education, and I’ve always wanted to work with young people. Libraries are really vibrant community places. They are also among the few spaces left in the world that are truly free. And I think children’s libraries are some of the most exciting places in any decent city.”
“Do you think that today’s young people read less than previous generations because of all the technology in our lives, as we often hear?”
“People say that, but when you look at the statistics, it is 100 percent untrue. Young people read just as much, and often more, than young people in the past did. The same is true of adults. Reading has stayed the same or, in fact, gone up. Library use has increased enormously since the recession.”
TRUE DETECTIVE: SEASON 2
(as suggested by Twitterville)
Begins article criticizing lack of diversity in K-12 books, ends article criticizing lack of adult male input in K-12 programs.
File under: how not to write an article about diversity.
"Librarianship, especially in K-12, is almost too overwhelmingly female for me to contemplate."—Marc Aronson’s at it again.
What an ass. Ironically, that stuff this dumb gets published in a library journal is evidence of the lower standards to which male librarians are held.
librarians who are bros it is time to unite
We used to rule everything
like publishing, banking, politics
but then someone let women vote
and now i can hardly turn around without having to hear a woman’s perspective on things
We had a lot of good memories tho.
I remember the first time I drank a cold bro beer with my broskis
I was able to find all the opinions of men and not women
and I could just think of some topic i wanted to talk about and just talk about it with my bros
Really trusted them wit that shit
Eventually I became a librarian (i liked to read all the books by all the bros)
and now i had to listen to women’s petty bickering all the time
for a while I kept thinking I should have picked any other profession in the entire world
but that really didn’t meet my needs
since I think bros should rule librarianship too
the bar after classes when i was in library school was full of women
but I still sometimes could be happy because at least most of my lib school professors were men
And most of the librarians i looked up to were bros like me
When I did my internship at a high school library i worked with black people, white people, and spanish people
It was a good high school too
But all of those people were GIRLS!
They wore bras and stuff
Sometimes they even called in sick and I had to do work that wasn’t becomming of my brodom
(h8ed when they made me do work fit for them)
i was still surrounded by bros tho
all my favorite bands on myspace were bro bands like My Chemical Romance
at least all of the stuff I saw at that time was dominated by males on myspace
i did like to look at Tila Tequila tho
This picture has 1 too many females^, i mean
Eventually bros will become irrelevant!
Bros like me replaced by WOEMN
and we’ll be no longer needed for the sweet organizational machines that we are
in the form of a greek gods
and not gross goddesses
So weird to realize that bros control everything except librarianship
even tho bros mostly win all the librarian awards
so i can see my people represented
as opposed to seeing WOMEN all the time
and sorting them out
I really miss u bros sometimes
U were the chillest of bros
A useful mind
and maybe I took u for granted
thought u would just controll everything
You know what would be SO CHILL???
If we started a Fight Club in LIS school
librarians who wanted to show off how many books they owned
they would have to fight for it too
Eventually, the bros would win
then we could all be like this bro
a shrine to male librarianship
OH and we should start a Men’s Rights group for LIS students!!!
We just don’t have enough say, us men bros
Maybe you don’t know how much better the world would be if bros ran it, but Beyonce says we don’t
but trust me…
We can get the world back from her
and I will be very hapy to see bros running the world again
If you know what Shaq Fu is, you probably think this is a joke, but it is real. There is a campaign to get this game funded, and personally, I hope it succeeds. While you’re at it, check the game teaser out too.
As much as I feel like OH PLEASE MAKE THIS SHAQ GAME (sequel to the one from the 90s!) I also feel like Shaq owes it to his fans, all of us, to fund it himself. Why should we front money to fund this game? We’ll all give you our money once it is out!!! Shaq is a fuckin American Icon.
2014 is amazing
hahaha oh aaron. she’s long gone.
no way, she just split up with her husband! aaron’s party come and get it.
i guess he’s extremely sexual again…
holy shit my son would laugh at this so hard but he’s at school!! i keep trying to tell him to sneak his phone into school so i can text him stuff like this but he’s only 9 so he still thinks he has to follow rules in school.
