bricksandmortarandchewinggum: I think I have to throw away some old running socks. They’ve been washed so many times the material is like …harsh. You know? And it’s bother my feet on longer runs. Is this a thing that happens or am I going completely insane? I know what you mean — when socks get so worn that the material becomes really thin and almost rough, in a way. Try the Wrightsock....
How Conversations Go When You're from a Small Town
“Dammit, man, stop asking me if I know someone from my town! Just because I’m from there doesn’t mean I know every single person in it. Oh, him? Yeah, I know him… he’s cool.”
bricksandmortarandchewinggum: I don’t get the Chloe Moretz thing. Granted, I’ve only ever seen her on 30 Rock and maybe she’s amazing in something else? But she seems like a completely terrible actor. Watch Let Me In. She’s fantastic in that. And even if you don’t like (500) Days of Summer, she’s a little scene-stealer in it.

Kirk Cameron: 'Be More Tolerant of My Intolerance'
Forgive my tardiness on the issue, but I didn’t have time to write about this earlier. Anyway, apparently Kirk Cameron has responded to his “critics” in an exclusive response to ABC News. In it, Cameron makes numerous totally legitimate points, including that he has gay friends so he’s not a bigot, and that people should be more tolerant of his intolerance. Wait, what?...

Marry Me, Amber Tamblyn
I already loved Amber Tamblyn from her acting work (I loved her on House last season), but her tricking Tyrese Gibson into thinking she was Amber Rose is amazing. Well, to be fair, she didn’t really trick him so much as he tricked himself. She definitely saved her best for last, too, because this is actually pretty awesome.
I Hope Rick Santorum...
I hope Rick Santorum gets the first overall pick in his fantasy sports league and in the first game of the season that player gets a season-ending injury.
Oh, so Tumblr changed the icons and buttons on the dashboard to a more flat look, kind of like Microsoft’s Metro design language? I like it, Tumblr staff. Nice subtle change.
Fox Bumps House for... NASCAR?!
