Boozhoo (hello), my name is Ken, I am a disabled Ojibwe artist from northern Wisconsin. I am writing this post because I am having a hard time making ends meet and any donations I could possibly receive at this time would be greatly appreciated. Recent events have left my bank account depleted and my cupboards bare, I have some food but it will not last and I still do not know how I will cover all the utility bills.
I do have PayPal, that is really the best way to donate at this time, the email I use for that is: email@example.com, or you can click here.

A Universal Pronoun in English?
This strange PDF argues that the phrase “your ass” is actually a pronoun.
aside from being absolutely right, the file is called ‘ass.final.pdf’ and just for that reason you should all download it
mom says you guys have to let me play with you
Good job Lily
My fucking heart man.
odin, thinking about how to learn a secret alphabet: hang on lemme kill myself real quick
Another important thread.
deep down we’re all pretentious, face it
I will never understand why Tom Lehrer is not a massive thing on tumblr.
For anyone who doesn’t know, Tom Lehrer was a Harvard mathematics lecturer who did musical satire in his spare time during the 50s and 60s.
He’s basically a lyrical genius: ridiculously clever and funny and awesome.
His songs cover pretty much every topic imaginable as well, from the political (the atomic bomb and world war three) to social issues (tolerance, drugs, homosexuality and religion) to environental issues (pollution and animal welfare) to the macabre and the kinky (masochism, necrophilia and dirty novels). And all in a tongue-in-cheek, amazingly still relevant way.
Tom Lehrer fandom, where you at?
(Party at my place. Bring the cheap jug wine and a couple-dozen pizzas)
In the filk and dementia communities, where we’ve always been.
(Jug wine hell, I’m bringing Tully.)
SPRING IS HERE, AH, S-P-RING IS HERE
LIFE IS SKITTLES AND LIFE IS BEER
Was?? I didn’t hear he was dead…
Oh, so far as I know he’s still living, but he is no longer a Harvard mathematics lecturer or a regular performer of musical satire.
(In an interview he did in I believe the late 1990s, he said that he likes to encourage rumors that he’s dead, as it cuts down on the junk mail.)
He appears to still be alive, and he stopped performing because he couldn’t do satire anymore in a world where Kissinger could win the Nobel Peace Prize.
Tom Lehrer is a treasure.
I have very vivid memories of my parents singing Tom Lehrer songs to me as a pre-schooler in the 80s.
He’s Jewish, btw!
You know what? Growing up as a small child singing about how we’re all going to be killed in a thermonuclear war explains a lot about me… I’m glad I’m not the only one, though.
Tom Lehrer is amazing.
AND WE WILL ALL GO TOGETHER WHEN WE GO!
I didn’t encounter Tom Lehrer’s works until my late teens, but wow…
Amusement park in Berlin left to nature’s devices [640×480]
It was “left to nature’s devices” because the owner got caught importing a roller coaster with 180 kilos of peruvian cocaine inside it
as a former ride operator, if the owner had said “a previous rider must have left it there,” I would have believed him
