Just in time for 4/20…

There’s a truism about the gold rush days of San Francisco: It wasn’t the miners who got rich; it was the people selling picks and shovels. As the legalization trend picks up steam, Silicon Valley thinks it can make a better shovel.

"In the best possible way, I feel like you have a chip on your shoulder like, you’re this independent single lady in the city and you get it done. You get shit done."

One of Amy Schumer’s comedy routines begins with the declaration, “I’m a little sluttier than the average bear. I really am.”
Degrees of sluttiness may be hard to define, but Schumer does talk frankly about many subjects — including sex — that can be uncomfortable for people, both in her stand-up act and on her Comedy Central series, Inside Amy Schumer, now in its second season. 
When Amy spoke with Terry Gross last year, she revealed why she’s so at ease talking about sex:  

"I have a joke where I say, ‘Oh, I’m going to bring [my mom] to a soccer game because I want to show her what boundaries look like.’ I just grew up in a house where things weren’t that taboo to talk about. And my mom, when she was teaching us to say our different body parts, taught me how to say ‘vagina’ the same that she taught me how to say ‘ear.’I think she wanted us to be able to tell her if we were ever molested without being embarrassed — and so there wasn’t this sense of shame. And I was running around naked to an age that probably wasn’t appropriate and just never was made to feel embarrassed or shamed because of my body or think anything was wrong with me, probably to a fault."

A flashback Friday to the Mrs. Doubtfire cast. It’s been twenty years since the film and a sequel is finally now in the works. 

"Decide you want it more than you’re afraid of it."

Bill Cosby  (via para-dox-soul)

I’m broke. And money is easily made for a girl like me who was born into the slimmest amount of privilege and has a building full of doors she can tap into. Yes, they all open to a life of hard work. Everything is hard work. But in the hard work lives the love, and if you work that hard at something you better love it. So I psych myself up. I give myself a good talking-to in the shower.

"Listen", I say to myself, inside my messy head, "you’ve got to cut the shit. Cut it out. You’re a dreamer on a budget, you’re a dreamer on a Bill Collectors call list. Cut the shit and get down to business. Pick a door, pick a smart door, pick a door that leads to money doing something you don’t totally hate. Pick a fucking door already. Make the money, live the life, have fun and be happy cause you know you can make it good if you really want it."

And I do want it, dear smart Brain of Logic that is trying so hard to take control of this ship and steer it away from the storm. There’s calm seas somewhere, and we can drift in peace, always on course, but let’s just choose an easier one this time, with pretty sights to see and a good chef on board. I do want it, Brain of Logic, I do want this life. I want to be happy and I want to exist well, with people and love and life and good food and babies and puppies, I want it all.

But then I go on tumblr, and these fuckers around here put shit like this into the world, quoting our dear Bill Cosby, not knowing how haphazardly these simple quotes can throw off a persons very decided brain. I was so close, but the door I want is at the end of the longest hallway, in the darkest corridor, and it makes me the most nervous, so clearly it’s the one I’m supposed to go for. Fuck you, tumblr. The Brain of Logic was so close.

"How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company? It’s beyond me."

Motto to live by.
