Ronald Reagan pretty much ruined everything for millennials.

fuckin’ ronnie

I try and bring up how he ruined free in state tuition in the name of hippie bashing when he was California’s governor often, but don’t exactly have the biggest platform.

"Worst of all, these students’ sense of the future is constrained by planning for and then paying down their student loans, often for decades. Economists are waking up to the fact that when young Americans enter the workforce burdened with over a trillion dollars in cumulative debt, they become risk averse, unwilling to move, less able to make major purchases, and slower to become homeowners. Not coincidentally, they don’t feel safe enough to register any major protests against the society that’s done this to them.”


bruh ronald reagan fucked shit up for EVERYONE, not just millenials. War on Drugs—Prison Industrial Complex, etc etc

Millennials’ politics are shaped by our dysfunctional system | Al Jazeera America

From food trucks to marijuana, the Reason report shows millennials are in favor of people doing their thing without state interference, but these are not the future capitalists the surveying foundations were hoping for. American millennials can’t possibly trust the government, but we still believe in a social safety net that takes care of everyone. This combination of libertarian and socialist values unnerves the major parties and unimaginative commentators, but it’s a logical response to the last 15 years. We’ve seen what happens when people don’t have anything to fall back on but the market, as well as what happens when the government feels entitled to know everything about everyone, and we don’t want either.

I wanted to leave quietly. It seemed dignified. But having Kevin grind up on my front while Erin pretends to hump me from behind is a more accurate tribute to my years here. I’m gonna miss these guys.

Expectations Vs. Reality / Game of thrones

July 27thvia and source with 98,738 notes


Peyton Paulette is a Graduate Film Student at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, TX, and he gave us the pleasure of seeing his short film called TeleVerite. It’s an Orson Welles-inspired story of a young television producer simply called Boy Wonder, who is given the opportunity to produce, write and direct any show he can think of. What he finally comes up with is the birth of reality shows, in all its glory and horror.

Paulette’s period piece is easy on the eye, beatifully filmed, with a Mad Men  vibe and a keen attention to detail. Set in the 1950s, TeleVerite  is a craftily created story with some really solid acting, accompanied by a subtle, to-the-point script and a message that echoes long after the credits. Paulette’s doing his best to turn the project into a feature length film, and we wish him good luck. It’s certainly a project we’d be happy to review.

I’ve had a life long interest and passion in films and I’m excited to be realizing that dream as a reality. The genesis of the film came with a question: What if Orson Welles had gone to television instead of Hollywood? Out of that came the story — a young television producer is lured to a fledgling Network with an outstanding offer: write, produce and direct any show that he can think of.  But what he comes up with is both revolutionary and frightening — reality television.  No scripts, no actors. Just reality. 

What I was trying to show with the film is how exploitative reality shows can be — whether it’s hoarders in their homes or addicts on the streets, producers all get involved in these projects with the intentions of being crusaders of social injustice. But, what they can never escape is that, at their core, they’re entertainers first and foremost.  And it’s this need to entertain that gets in the way of actual progress. —Peyton Paulette

The film is an official selection of the 2014 Texas Independent Film Festival at Texas A&M University in College Station, TX.
