peebles teach me how to be you
can we just talk about this for a minute
because seriously i have so much respect for the adventure time team. they’ve made a successful cartoon that isn’t random poop and fart jokes for a solid eleven minutes. sure, adventure time has its immature moments, but then there’s parts like this.
pb’s backed up against the wall in a position that’s way too common in today’s society. you can tell she’s scared and uncomfortable. so what does she do? she beats the shit out of ricardio.
she doesn’t “play nice”, she doesn’t “let him down gently”, she tears off his limbs and stomps on his face. then ricardio tries to play the nice guy card and she has none of it. it’s refreshing to see something aimed at children that doesn’t state that girls need to be polite and sweet and stand by while someone makes them uncomfortable.
basically, i love this show and i love how it teaches girls something that’ll actually come in handy some day. god fucking bless.
And let’s not forget, this isn’t a one time thing. There’s an episode later in the series where Ice King won’t leave her along and she fucking shoots him. Granted, its with a tranquilizer but still. She tells him exactly one time to back off, and when he doesn’t, she does not even hesitate to put him down. This is why Peebs will forever be my favorite. She doesn’t put up with it, and she tells little girls that they don’t need to put up with it either.
One time, in 2008 or 2009…whenever it was that Britney Spears had her head-shaving meltdown, me and my little sister and our best friend decided, “Hell! Rolls are the tastiest damn thing ever! Let’s go to that O’Charley’s up the road.” So we went to that O’Charley’s up the road, and there was a big group of little girls there for a birthday party, and they thought I was Britney, and the birthday girl’s mom and older brother asked if I would pretend to be Britney and sign autographs. So I signed all these cocktail napkins for all these cute little kids that wanted to know if I’d hung out with Jamie Lynn recently, and what I was doing in Nashville.There was one girl that wasn’t quite buying it, though, and kept asking me to sing, so then I had to pretend to have a cold, as the mom said, “Okay, kids! I think it’s time for you to let Britney go back to having dinner with her friends!” So I went back to my table, feeling like Princess Diana, but still kind of curious as to how the hell somebody would mistake me for Britney Spears.

Born West Africa, c. 1925; died Madison, Wisconsin, 2000
Simon Sparrow spent his first two years among the Yoruba in West Africa and the next decade on a Cherokee reservation in North Carolina. His travels as an adult are somewhat obscure, but he lived some years in Philadelphia and later in New York, working as a house painter, singer, and cook. Sometime after 1968 he moved with his wife and children to Madison, Wisconsin, and lived there for the rest of his life.
Sparrow began painting in the 1960s, but it was not until the mid-1980’s that he began to create the grand scale and complex assemblages for which he is best known. For Sparrow, faces and figures in his compositions depict spirits, essences of people who lived long ago and images that came to him from God. Sparrow showed his works in public spaces in Madison and preached to people about their spiritual messages, thus allowing his assemblages to reach the art world’s notice.

I just found this cigar box of mine, filled with random drawings and notes, including four from the year in high school that my sister and I had study hall together, and I kept writing her fake love notes pretending to be the guitarist from the Academy Is…,with her responses written on the back. Solid weird teenage fangirl gold.
