AWKWARD BABY BIRDS!

26 Apr

I present to you, AWKWARD BABY BIRDS!

This isn’t just another list of cute birds.

This post required actual research (take note Buzzfeed).

I don’t know anything about birds, so identifying birds is a nightmare.

Plus most times, when you see a picture of a bird on the internet, the caption just reads “CUUUuuuuUUuTE!” which is NOT helpful if you are trying to figure out the species.

Enjoy (This list was a pain to assemble).

Here’s another picture of a baby great egret.

During my search for birds, I learned that egrets are a type of heron. I also found that ALL baby herons are awkward. All of them: Baby Night Heron, Baby Green Herons, and Baby Tri-Colored Heron (with poop on his head) to name a few.

 

Baby Black Browed Albatross (Baby “Thalassarche melanophrys“)

If you search for “Baby Albatross”, all the pictures are adorable and awkward (here’s one of a baby albatross that barfed all over himself). This is basically a fantastic “before and after” picture. This scraggly little chick is going to become a beautifully flawless bird.

Baby Sandhill Crane (Baby “Grus canadensis”)

AArgh. He’s so cute. This little guy was the inspiration for the whole post. He’s my favorite little bird. Here are more pictures if you don’t believe me (how dare you). Running birds!, baby bird with dad, free ride.

A collection of kickass stuff I find on the internet.

Cool Stuff // And Also… // Articles // Videos // Trailers & TV/Movie News

DI Cool Stuff BarA WEEK WHERE NOBODY LEARNED ANY LESSONS!!! ~ Welp- it was an exciting week in “STORIES THAT FLOODED MY FACEBOOK FEED WITH UNASKED FOR OPINIONS.” It started with Megyn Kelly saying that “Santa… is white.” Kelly said this during a discussion over an article that was published at Slate entitled Santa Claus Should Not Be A White Man Anymore. The ensuing shitstorm was epic. A million articles were written about why Megyn Kelly’s remarks were awful. The lesson everyone SHOULD have learned was: NEVER EVER ENGAGE ANYONE AT SLATE!! They LIVE for that, you guys! When FoxNews contacted them to do a segment, I imagine everyone at Slate experienced a collective orgasm. Technically, I agree with Slate on most issues and I STILL always leave the site in a spluttering rage. Slate writes articles with the sole purpose of upsetting you (why else would they have AN ENTIRE TAG entitled “YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG!? Really, Slate? I’m doing grilled cheese wrong? I DOUBT IT, you arrogant assholes.). [ThinkProgress]

GEORGE ZIMMERMAN IS COMING FOR YOU!~ Following in George W. Bush’s footsteps, George Zimmerman has turned to art therapy to quiet the demons in his life. Zimmerman recently put a painting he did on Ebay in hopes that the sale would help him combat his financial woes (i.e. MASSIVE COURT COSTS). In the description of the painting, Zimmerman says, “My art work allows me to reflect, providing a therapeutic outlet and allows me to remain indoors 🙂.” The smiley emoticon at the end isn’t me editorializing- that’s Zimmerman being all cute and jokesy (it’s hilarious because he gets in SUCH PREDICAMENTS when he leaves his house!). Zimmerman isn’t going to remain indoors forever though. The person who has the winning bid on Ebay gets a DOUBLE treat because Zimmerman has promised to deliver the painting to their door. WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?   [NY MAG]

BROOKLYN IS NAMED LESBIAN CAPITAL OF THE NORTHEAST~ Marty Markowitz declared Brooklyn, NY “The Lesbian Capital of the Northeast!” Marty Markowitz (I CAN ONLY SAY HIS FULL NAME) is the Borough President of Brooklyn… which I didn’t know was a thing. It should be noted that this statement was issued with pride (no pun intended). Marty Markowitz believes that lesbians have, “made unbelievable contributions to the quality of life in our city and our borough” (awwww). Brooklyn beat out Amherst, Northampton, Manhattan, and Provincetown– and from what I can determine– NO ONE HAS TRIED TO CORRECT HIM! Who knew Borough President carried such authority?! WHY STOP THERE, MARTY MARKOWITZ? How about lesbian capital of THE UNITED STATES! THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE! THE WORLD!!! [Gothamist]

DI Cool Stuff BarTEXAS POLITICIANS ARE TERRIFIED OF TAMPONS~  Texas politicians gathered at the state capitol on Friday to vote on an anti-abortion bill (which passed). The weird thing, though, is state troopers were confiscating tampons and maxi-pads at security. That sounds crazy, right? Surely there must be more to the story! The super-sleuths over at Twitchy (a site Michelle Malkin started up that draws its news from Twitter) had more to say: “Pro-aborts Whine About Tampon Confiscation at Texas Capitol; Fail To Say The Reason.

Guns were still allowed because there were no reports that people were going to either throw or shoot them at legislators [Twitchy]

Alright… so there you have it. No one FORMALLY announced that they were going to shoot a senator in the face so NO NEED TO WORRY ABOUT GUNS, YOU GUYS! Just to be clear- if people DID sneak in maxi-pads and tampons- the worst that would happen is that politicians would be embarrassed. Unless someone throws the entire BOX –there is very little chance of physical harm befalling anyone. Maxi-pads and tampons are mostly cotton. They are also super light. You can’t get enough velocity behind them to do any harm– unless you fashioned some sort of tampon nunchuck (which would be awesome and please do that someone!). WHEREAS- if someone forgot to let the world know that they were assassinating someone and brought in a gun- someone would probably legit die. Yeesh. In closing, enjoy this picture of Rick Santorum being pelted with tampons and maxi pads. [Huffington Post]

QUEERING UP MARVEL COMICS (because guys in tights just isn’t cutting it anymore)~ Andrew Garfield, the actor currently playing Spider-Man suggested Spider-man have a bi-racial boyfriend and everyone agreed with him and thought it was a great idea! Just kidding. They flipped their shit. Garfield was quoted as saying:

“What if MJ is a dude?’ Why can’t we discover that Peter is exploring his sexuality? It’s hardly even groundbreaking! So why can’t he be gay? Why can’t he be into boys?”

Spider-man could TOTALLY be into boys, you guys! He’s an attractive artsy type who lives in New York. AND YOU WOULD ONLY HAVE TO TWEEK THE THEME-SONG A LITTLE (Spider-man, Spider-man/your friendly bi-sexual Spider-man…). But people are HELLA sensitive about changes to the “traditional” Spider-man (“traditional” Spider-man being white and straight… just like every other Marvel superhero ever. Yawn.). The Internet was worked into a frenzy when there was a campaign to make Donald Glover the new Spiderman. People COULD NOT DEAL with a black Spider-man. Spider-man could not possibly be black! Donald Glover ended up not being the new Spider-man. There IS a black Spider-man, though. Why? Because Retroactive Continuity is totally a thing in the comic book world (and with studios rebooting franchises every eight years– it’s quickly becoming a thing in the movie world too). Superheroes have different histories and different stories depending on the series that they are in. So no matter what people INSIST– Spider-man can totally be black, or hispanic, or gay, or maybe even Canadian. If you know anyone who is flipping out over a bi-sexual Spider-Man, let them know that Helen Mirren suggested that Doctor Who should have a black, gay, LADY Doctor and watch their head explode.

Whoa. You guys. I have totally been neglecting you.

I was updating all the time (basically NAILING this blog thing) and then I abandoned you.

Forgive me.

I got a job (like an ADULT) and so I’ve been dealing with that.

I know what you are thinking– and I agree.

It’s no excuse.

And after this post– I’ll be back to posting on the regular.

Let’s DO THIS!

DI Cool Stuff Bar

BUT WHO WILL SPEAK FOR THE BUTTERSCOTCH LOVERS? ~ NPR is usually pretty good about giving a voice to the disenfranchised. I’ve heard from displaced refugees and from Arab revolutionaries in Cairo– all of them finally able to tell their stories of bravery and perseverance in the face of adversity. “Bringing Back Butterscotch” is another heroic tale NPR was brave enough to air. Rina Rapuano talks about the stigma surrounding butterscotch– chiefly the strange looks people give her when she orders it and her 80 year old mother thinking that she was “uncool.” How does she have the strength to go on? You guys, we have got to MOBILIZE! Is there a Butterscotch Lobby in Washington?

Whatever. I’m being unnecessarily harsh and kind of an asshole. Butterscotch is for reals delicious. “Bringing it back” is a crusade I can totally get behind.  [NPR]

IS “GAY FOR PAY” PASSÉ? ~ The answer, of course, is “YES.” Buzzfeed put out a list of “31 Actresses That Went Gay For Pay.” It’s a list of ladies who have played LGBT characters in film or television. The list is meant to be celebratory but there are a few things about it that irk me– chiefly the phrase “Gay for Pay.” Dana Piccoli wrote a great article in response (“Is “Gay for Pay” Passé?“) and you should read it. Piccoli notes that the phrase “has pornographic origins.” All I’m sayin’ is if you are singling people out to honor them- using “Gay For Pay” seems a little backhanded to me. It is awesome that queer/LGBT stories are starting to be told and that actors feel drawn to these roles– and to some degree these actors should be celebrated. So when we single them out for recognition- surely there is something we can say that denotes gratitude.” I’ve been working on it and If you had to have a term for straight actors who play LGBT characters in the media: Faux-mos. It’s perfect.

Really, this whole paragraph was just so I could demonstrate how amazing I am at creating portmanteaus. Jealous?

Kurt Braunohler is going to write funny things in the sky! ~ Comedian Kurt Braunohler successfully raised enough money on Kickstarter to fund his project– and that project is to write funny things in the sky. Braunohler has this to say about the project:

“Skywriting is crazy. We’re forcing clouds to say things. That’s inherently funny. How great would it be to look up one day and there’s a message in the sky, for no other reason other than itself. It’s not trying to sell you anything, it’s not trying to tell you something. It’s just there.”

Of the list of possible phrases Braunohler is thinking of using, my favorites are “HOW DO I LAND??” and “Clouds 4 EVA!” It would make my day to look up and see that in the sky. [Kurt Braunohler Kickstarter]

Denying Men Sex Is Like Child Neglect ~ The Wall Street Journal ran this article a while ago (“How Often Should Married Couples Have Sex“). I didn’t write about it because every time I tried to talk about, all that came out of my mouth was a sustained scream. The article chronicles the tortured year of a man who had to cope with a wife who refused to have sex with him. What monster woman would do such a thing?! It made him feel sad, you guys:

“He became grumpy, gained weight and stopped wanting to come home at night. “For me to feel good about myself, I needed her to have sex with me,” he says. “Otherwise I thought she didn’t love me.””

WHERE DID HE FIND THE COURAGE TO GO ON????!!! I’m not being blasé about this man’s problem. Intimacy is important in a relationship. HOWEVER, tucked away, towards the very end of the article, is a throwaway line mentioning the fact that his wife had a miscarriage. Do you think that might have affected her  just a little bit? There is nothing in the article to suggest that anything was being done to help her work through her emotional issues. But whatever. Let’s not lose focus- this man is not having sex. He even did chores for her! How rude. [New York Magazine]

**This is late (cos I’ve had a lot of shows recently) but still quality! SO ENJOY!!**

DI Cool Stuff BarGin Is The Best Because Of Reasons! ~ In my experience (experience here meaning unapologetic drinker of gin) gin gets a lot of undeserved slander. I blame Hogarth. The New York Times ran an article titled Gin Doesn’t Make You Sad. I read it thinking it might reveal some amazing scientific discovery about my favorite liquor (I don’t need science to know that gin is amazing, but for everyone criticizing my drink of choice, sometimes it’s nice to throw science in their face). The article is basically one person’s discovery that gin wasn’t making him sad… his life was. Yikes. Anyway… gin is awesome. The key to establishing something as a scientific fact is the ability to replicate an experiment and that yields consistent results. FACT: Gin is fun and delicious EVERY TIME! (That’s right– I’m drinking for SCIENCE!)    [The New York Times]

In Terms Of Awesome Space News– CANADA IS KILLING IT!! ~ So, two weeks ago, Canada announced they were redesigning their $5 bill and putting astronauts on it. Which is awesome (WHY DON’T WE HAVE SPACE MONEY, AMERICA??). Chris Hadfield, the commander of Expedition 35, returned to earth on the 15th of May, after a six month long mission in space. He will be returning with Roman Romanenko (RSA) and Thomas Marshburn (NASA/USA!). Astronauts are clearly very cool. What makes Chris Hadfield double cool?
