good call kylie

joe pa: out


May I have a dog, please!

joe pa's statement

released today:
“I am absolutely devastated by the developments in this case. I grieve for the children and their families, and I pray for their comfort and relief.
I have come to work every day for the last 61 years with one clear goal in mind: To serve the best interests of this university and the young men who have been entrusted to my care. I have the same goal today.
That’s why I have decided to announce my retirement effective at the end of this season. At this moment the Board of Trustees should not spend a single minute discussing my status. They have far more important matters to address. I want to make this as easy for them as I possibly can.
This is a tragedy. It is one of the great sorrows of my life. With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had done more.
My goals now are to keep my commitments to my players and staff and finish the season with dignity and determination. And then I will spend the rest of my life doing everything I can to help this University.” (via)
oh, my two cents? well, it seems a bit presumptuous of him to release a statement, without facing the press, students, or alumni in person, in which he determines his own fate. he is basically instructing the board to let him finish up his season, and not to fire him. and i'm not certain that he's deserving of that level of control over the situation that he directly or indirectly enabled.

what do y'all think?

goodness gracious.

if i had a car, this would probably happen in it.

thx margauxxxxxxxxxx.

after we ride the fun slide, lets go see a movie

If you’ve seen the OWS protest signs that read I’LL BELIEVE THAT CORPORATIONS ARE INDIVIDUALS WHEN TEXAS EXECUTES ONE—and nodded approvingly—there’s an excellent chance that you’ll also love Werner Herzog’s bracing new documentary, Into the Abyss. 

 Herzog structures his true-crime story around jailhouse interviews with a killer named Michael Perry—who was executed just eight days after his last meeting with the director. But the film is also a portrait of a Texas town that’s so weird, in so many messed-up ways, that it might as well have come from one of Herzog’s whacked-out feature films (or, better yet, one of David Lynch’s). This time out, Herzog lets his subjects, and his camera, do most of the talking; as a result, Into the Abyss is one of his plainest-looking films. But it’s also full of ironies, revelations, jaw-dropping bits, and terribly sad moments—so many of them that, for once, Herzog’s ultra-impassioned narration doesn’t seem overwrought. Into the Abyss ends up being one of his best films, and one of the year’s best documentaries. via

nyc marathon in 5 minutes.

this is mesmerizing. i love the explosions of green cups every mile or so. looks like she might've done a battery change as she ran past dave and liz in greenpoint.
I ran my 3rd New York City Marathon for Team Fox on November 6th, 2011 with a GoPro Hero 2 camera strapped to my head. The camera took a photo every second to create this time lapse video, which was edited with Quicktime 7 and Final Cut Pro. (via)
