btw, since first seeing this post, I’ve bought the ebook and it’s SO GOOD. Highly recommended.

DONALD GLOVER IS SPIDER-MAN AT LAST (IN DISNEY XD’S ANIMATED SPIDER-MAN SERIES)
“My name is Miles Morales, and I’m Spider-Man.” With those words, Donald Glover takes his place among the ranks of official on-screen Spider-Men.
It’s been known for a while now that Miles Morales, the Ultimate Universe version of Spider-Man, would make his screen debut in an upcoming episode of the Disney XD series Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors, but only now do we know that the part will be voiced by actor and Spidey fan Donald Glover. It’s a brilliant casting decision that we choose to interpret as the first step towards more Miles in other media, rather than an end in its own right.
really sick of seeing so much hate directed towards the police on here. look, we get it, you prefer sting’s solo work, i like it too alright? that doesnt mean ‘every little thing she does is magic’ and ‘can’t stand losing you’ arent awesome jams. ‘roxanne’ and ‘don’t stand so close to me’ are classic, don’t even get me started on ‘spirits in the material world’. just stop ok?

This causes an autonomic nervous system shift from a sympathetic (fight or flight reaction) state to a parasympathetic response.
Use this for panic/anxiety attacks, exams, presentations.
Never not reblog
Tumblr got anxiety advice. Fuck yeah.
Read this earlier, and it helped me a lot tonight.
Let us be vividly clear about this.
What the New York Times did to Michael Brown today was not merely slander. It wasn’t a case of a lack of journalistic integrity.
Highlighting that a black teenager was “no angel” on the day he is being laid to rest after being hunted and…
look at his cluster of yums
It’s good to remember that if you’re a straight white male human, sometimes your very best course of action when addressing a pressing human rights issue is to just shut the fuck up and be the non-racist/sexist/homophobic person that you know you are. At times you’ll feel the urge to voice your opinion, “That’s all not all white people!”…”That’s not all men!…”That’s not all straight guys!”, and you’ll be right and it will be frustrating to just sit unheard while people generalize a category of people to which you belong. But by staying silent you are validating and empowering the opinions and feelings of those who feel the real oppression. The oppression from the powerful forces in this world that strip the humanity right off people’s backs because of their sex, skin color, and sexual preference. By saying nothing you let these oppressed people have their voice, you show your respect for them and let others know that you think what they have to say is the most important thing that people need to hear. If you need to say something to somebody, be wise and have the courage to back the causes and movements of the oppressed in your everyday life. Tell that asshole kid you know to stop calling kids that he doesn’t like ‘faggots’ or ‘queers’. Tell that pig of a person that he’s making a woman feel uncomfortable with his cat calls and that she’s either too scared or too apathetic to let him know. When your buddies are throwing around racist jokes, don’t laugh, tell them that it’s fucked up and that the very simple thinking that allows racist jokes to have any value to people is the exact type of thinking that leads to the racial profiling and dehumanization of people such as the tragedy that occurred in Ferguson earlier this month. True bravery isn’t measured by your ability to stand up for yourself, but rather by how willing you are to stand up for the rights of others. Know when to be silent. Know when to be brave. You have more power than you know. Use it wisely young men.
