we need to protect and defend anthony mackie at all costs because he is a wonderful person who acknowledges the importance of representation and diversity and he is so goddamn enthusiastic and excitable and lovely. mackie is a gift to this world and we must elevate him to superstar levels.
You know, funny story: There’s this craft store called Michaels. Look, my sister knits, and she goes to Michaels. So my sister called me and she’s like, “Oh my god, I’m at Michaels, picking up yarn. You have a poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “What?” She’s like, “There’s a poster, there’s a Falcon poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “Holy s**t!” She’s like, “I’m gonna come and pick you up, and we’re gonna see your poster in this store.” So she picks me up and we go to Michaels.
We go in, and I see the poster and I’m like, “Oh, this is….” She’s like, “I know, I know.” I said, “I’m gonna sign these posters.” I was like, “That would be amazing, you buy a poster and it’s like, actually signed by the Falcon.” Like, it would blow my mind. So I go to the front, I buy a Sharpie, I run back to the back of the store. And she’s like, “I’m gonna take a picture of you signing it.”
I’m in this store and I’m signing all the posters. The manager comes out, he’s like, “Hey, whatcha doing?” I was like, “Oh man, I’m signing these posters so when people buy ‘em, they’re signed.” He’s like, “Well, people are not gonna buy ‘em if they’re signed.” And I was like, “No, no, no, it’s cool. I’m pretty sure there won’t be a problem.” And he goes, “Yeah, but it is gonna be a problem, you’re messin’ up my inventory.” And I’m like, “No, my man, trust me. I mean, I’m the Falcon, that’s me!” And he goes, “Yeah, right. You’re gonna buy those posters.” I said, “What?” He’s like, “You’re gonna buy all those posters or I’m gonna call the police.”
He rolls up all the posters and goes to the front of the store. And I had to buy like 60 Falcon posters that I signed in Michaels.
Second interview at the hardware store I applied to last week!
Also, friends, tumblr was not working for me at ALL yesterday, dunno if it’ll still be the sam today.
The college I work for has two food banks one on each campus.
I was talking to my mom about starting salaries for kids out of college, and she said when she got her first job in 1976, her starting salary was $10,000 a year. I checked an inflation calculator - that’s more than $41k/year in 2014 dollars. College students are broker than ever before, and recent grads are lucky to crack the poverty line in their first year out of school. It’s going to be really interesting in the next half century to see how this generation reacts to starting off in life so far behind.
