I like consistency. I like novelty. I like to think I'm not so contrary.
In my spare time I make movies, write nonsensical prose, study the universe and contemplate our purpose in it, watch anything created with the help of Joss Whedon, scribble math ratios in the margins of my notebook, sketch the faces of those I love, and procrastinate.
I've been told I'm intelligent, but I think I'm just curious and a touch passive-aggresively arrogant.
I reblog words, Steam Powered Giraffe, attractive things (see SPG), Kenneth Parcell, spiders, music that applies to my situation all too well, and some other stuff that I guess doesn't really fit into this categories even though they're pretty broad. Mostly, though, I reblog words that I believe to be true.

While it would make for a simpler narrative, companies like Walmart, Gap, and H&M that have operations in Bangladesh outsource the making of their clothing lines overseas not simply because they want to exploit people on the other side of the world, but because we their customers all but force them to do it. While most of us would be appalled if we saw the working conditions and knew the wages of the people that make the clothes we wear and would no doubt shout our anger from the roof tops, our wallets tell a different story. Our wallets, or more specifically our spending habits reveal the cold hard reality that most of us just don’t give a shit about where we get our clothes, so long as we get them for cheap. Worse yet, as Tony Campolo would say, most of us in the church care more about fact that I just said “shit” than the fact that countless men, women, and children suffer and die everyday as a direct result of our lust for low, low prices. Which is why the problem of evil is hanging in our closets.»The Problem Of Evil Is Hanging In Your Closet (via azspot)
