It’s definitely still running! I haven’t gotten new submissions in a long time, and I’ve been pretty busy with school/work/life, but I haven’t forgotten about this blog.

Why is the men’s rights movement a thing? Like for real. Why? That’s like having a movement to give white people the rights that they’ve been denied for years and years. None of it makes sense, and a lot of it is pretty offensive.

I’M JUST DOWNVOTING EVERYTHING ON reddit.com/r/mensrights BECAUSE IT’S ALL SO RIDICULOUS I DON’T EVEN.

LOST KITTEN, Madison, WI! 3 blocks north of the Capitol at Johnson and Hamilton.

laughingcutlery:

Hey Tumblr, my housemate’s 12-week-old kitten got out this morning as her out-of-town guests were leaving. His name is Benji and he’s orange, little, and very sweet. PLEASE keep an eye out if you are around Johnson and Hamilton, near James Madison Park. His sister is really upset that he’s gone and we’re all anxious to get him back.

Please reblog this so people see it, especially if you or people you know live/work/walk/whatever near where we live!

Hey, all!

I’m sorry I haven’t been updating very much these past few months, but don’t you worry, because I’m sure this fall will bring some pretty good posts. As always, please, please, please feel free to submit anything crazy you happen to hear around this lovely city! This blog is nothing without community involvement, and my two ears can only hear so much. Let’s make this blog great!
