I have a problem, you guys. And it’s the trailer for that new Collin Farrel movie. And the massive, inexplicable age difference between Farrel and his love interest. When I saw the trailer, I did what I often do — checked IMDB — and just as I suspected, the two actors have over a decade…
I had to ask Benjamin to pause Her because of how furious I was that Joaquin Phoenix said he grew up with Rooney Mara and they “formed each other’s personalities” REALLY? Can’t film have a same-age couple growing up together for crying out loud? What makes me angrier is that the age difference goes unmentioned, like this is JUST how the world works, men grow up together with women 10 years younger without mentioning WTF. It made me dislike the movie.

Dear UCBNY students,
I made you a thing.
I know it can be difficult to circle the UCB Training Center’s Open Registrations pagelooking for classes to open up, so I first asked for a new, updated RSS feed of open classes, which the UCB IT staff produced marvelously. Then, knowing most people don’t actually use RSS readers, I created a series of alerts using the incredibly useful IFTTT (If This, Then That - I thought it was unusually fitting). You will need to register for the site.
These alerts will fire when a new class is added, when few seats remain in a class, and every time someone withdraws prior to class’ start, sending you an email each time.
You’ll get a bunch of emails. (Delete the ones you don’t need.)
Keep in mind, the alerts can take up to 15 minutes to send, which means, if a class fills in those first 15 (or 1) minutes, IFTTT may never see it. I’m currently looking for the best way to notify you of course preview posts on the UCB Message Board to fill that gap, but come on, if you’re obsessed or desperate enough to use one of these, you’re already checking regularly.

It’s not perfect, but it should help you get those open seats you so desperately want.
Please let me know if anything can be improved.

I spent way too much time on this. Please use and enjoy it.
Free styling (or trying to) while getting read for work, just came up with this gem:
He’s always been stinky he is a farter
Now he’s graduated to being a sharter
Shit in his pants all up and down
They used to be white now they are brown
Yep high class Art with a capital “A” all the way, and oh so meaningful. :-D #politics
Nobody. #ilovenyc #broadcity
Kill me I’m dying.
Amazing what an angelbaby!
Watched Sasheer’s debut ep with most of Bucky and we were straight up freaking out the whole time.
Words cannot express just how thrilled and proud we were watching this. We’re SO incredibly proud of Sasheer!!!
Sasheer seems SOOOOOOO happy in this. Amazing.
How to relieve menstrual cramps using pressure points.
I learned this method about a year ago and my life has been indescribably better since, so I decided I would share. :)
I’m weird because I prefer ice to heat, but I’m defiantly going to try those pressure points… If I ever get my period.
This seems really promising, but I’d learned that caffeine is bad for cramps???? WHAT IS TRUE??
