Chris Pratt worked with Marvel and Children’s Miracle Network Hospital to arrange a special screening of Guardians of the Galaxy for patients, families and staff at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Wednesday. While the movie played, Pratt snuck out and dressed up as his character, Star-Lord. He spent more than three hours in full costume and handed out movie-themed toys. Pratt also visited patients in the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit, the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases, and the Pediatric ICU, as they were too sick to join the movie screening that afternoon.

Pratt spent extra time with one patient, Dylan Prunty, who is a longtime Lego fan and recognized the actor’s voice from The Lego Movie. They spent about 10 minutes reciting different scenes from the film.

Turning point in #Ferguson? Police drew guns on Hip Hop artist/activist Talib Kweli & others, threatened to shoot last night. (Above) Kweli observes police were in rush formation BEFORE the water bottle was thrown at them. Major questions being raised about identity of individual who threw water bottle— possibly an agent provocateur, someone working for police to either invite riot or provide “justification” for police to assault a peaceful protest. (Left) Activist Phil Agnew, who is in Ferguson, says protesters are being depicted inaccurately. (Below) Example of an agent provocateur: notice the protester being tackled to the ground by police is wearing the EXACT SAME SHOES the police in uniform are wearing (?!?!) #mikebrown 


Man I called this shit when the looting first started. There are ALWAYS plain clothes police who act as instigators. Always have been and always will be.

hey if you’re not a shitty white person you don’t have to say it.

if you’re not a shitty guy you don’t have to say it.

if you’re not a shitty Christian you don’t have to say it.

if you’re not a shitty X you don’t have to say it.

but it you are shitty you’ll probably be the first one to say “not all X”

Anonymous said: Is it racist that a white, 20 year old unarmed kid was shot by a black cop on Monday, Aug 18, 3 days ago and its no where in the news? Oh wait, it happens all the time, its just not newsworthy. Sucks to be white.

yoisthisracist:

Dear Racists: I know you’re going to to be trotting this out in the next few days claiming that this shows how white people are just as badly treated as black people in the US (though, of course, the idea that “it happens all the time” to white people is, of course, a ridiculous and disgusting lie).

But guess what, fuckheads, as usual, you’re wrong as fuck. The reason this tragedy isn’t national news is because, surprise surprise, a similar (ish) shooting of a white teenager by a black cop is being handled by the authorities completely differently! That’s right, you dumbfucks, this officer is being immediately and vigorously investigated, the officer’s name was released, the victim wasn’t denied medical care, nor was his body left on the street for hours. It’s almost like, we treat black and white people differently in our justice system! And if you want to argue that the fucking Salt Lake City PD (oh shit, was I able to read about this case in the NATIONAL NEWS?!?!?! ) is racist against white people, you are fucking out of your mind.

So, nice try, you asshole, I know you were salivating over finding a case to compare this to Mike Brown, but, even with this timing, you’re not even fucking close to proving your racist “point.”

There’s a free movies-in-the-park double feature in Grand Rapids tomorrow night - The Sandlot and Jurassic Park. I need to go to there.

LOSING IT ALL

anberlinlyrics:

Not sure what tomorrow brings

Not sure why a cage bird sings

Don’t ask cause I don’t know

No idea just where to go

High hopes and higher dreams

May not have everything

I promise to be good

I’ll be good to you

Hard work and harder times

As long as you say you are mine

We’ll see the other side together

Its not losing it all if we have each other

In the end its all that matter

If we take this chance

And it falls to pieces

In the end you’re all that matters.

My my oh no

Don’t have much money to show

Don’t care don’t cry

Wipe that mascara from your eyes

i know, you’ll see

We’ve just got to believe

In you in me we make our own destiny

Its not losing it all if we have each other

In the end its all that matter

If  we take this chance

And it falls to pieces

In the end you’re all that matters.

How could I

Say goodbye

We’ve come too far to turn back now.

Who are we

Without each other

To intwined to untangle now.

This song is for all the dreamers, those that sacrifice for the their goals. Those who work two jobs to pay for University, those who leave friends and family behind to explore a promising future, those who view financial woes as just a marker that they are one step closer, and for those significant others that stand behind us every step of the way. 

I know that this will be the most underrated song on the record, perhaps in our catalog. Even some of the guys wish it wasn’t on the record; for me its one of my favorites. It reminds me of the ‘pop’ songs we used to write. 

I can’t believe anyone didn’t want this song on the album. One of my favorites.
