I submitted a t-shirt design for a contest with the theme for the old movie, ‘The Big Lebowski’. Have I seen it? Nope. Will I watch it? Nah. Not my kind of movie. But I was reading through a list of the film’s top quotes and one spoke out to me long enough to sketch out an idea. It’s got a cult following, and oddly enough, has come up in conversation a lot lately. Reading those subtle signs as an inspiration to submit my work.
It’d be great if it makes it through. We’ll just keep the fact that I have no idea what the movie is about to ourselves, k? ;)
LOOK AT ALL THESE WONDERFUL ART RESOURCES OMG.
I have officially picked out my next car. EEEEEEEEEEEEE.
My current baby has been so good to me and I couldn’t be more thankful to have it. But I can’t haul a dog in it, can’t haul surf boards in it, and whenever I drive it more than an hour I feel a little worried that it might just get too tired to go any further.
I CANNOT WAIT.
I have the make, model, year AND color picked out. Hell yeah, baby.
(I won’t be able to afford it til 2015, but I am a planner and this is how I plan things out.)
"The cold never bothered me anyway."
While it felt a lot like a stage show to me, I did definitely enjoy Frozen, and Elsa’s song was super catchy.
The sad thing is there are people in this country who won’t get the joke.
"My Facebook and Instagram couldn’t stop crying over a man who drove cars in a movie."
This sentence. This one sentence shows just how little you actually know about what kind of person Paul was. There was so much more to him than just his acting in the F&F franchise. He was a loving father of a teenage daughter who moved in with him shortly before his death, so they could spend more time with each other. Meadow was everything to him. If you ask his co-stars, his friends; his daughter was all he talked about. He was a family man and loving father.
Paul cared for his fellow human beings, and sure, if you wanna play comparison with a legend like Nelson Mandela then be my guest, but just because Paul’s work wasn’t as “significant” as Mandela’s doesn’t make it void or any less important. Paul did a lot for people in need with Reach Out World Wide, an organization that he has founded, one he was doing a fundraiser for just an hour before his life came to an untimely end. He wasn’t doing charity work for his image or publicity — which is probably why a lot of people didn’t even really know about it; he did it out of the good of his heart, because it was something he loved to do, and he kept it “behind-the-scenes,” for the most part.
If you don’t know a thing about Paul and his courageous spirit — maybe because you were never really all that into his acting or the kind of movies he played and therefore didn’t know a lot about him, which is fine — either educate yourselves on the amazing work that he has done, outsite of his acting career, or just… maybe keep your opinions on him to yourself and stop making us — his fans — feel bad for mourning somebody we admire, somebody we’ve looked up to.
I guess I just wish people would keep it out of his tag. None of these discussions have anything to do with Paul. Let’s stop comparing the deaths of two people. Let’s stop comparing their lives or the impact that they’ve had on the world, on the people living in it. Because they both have had big impacts on the world, just in completely different ways. But that doesn’t make either one less important than the other.
At the end of the day they both cared more for the well-being of others than their own, and that makes them both absolutely amazing and wonderful people, so let’s put the petiness aside and celebrate the good that they have done with their lives and mourn their loss as we see fit, each in their own ways, without making anybody feel bad.
RIP, Paul Walker. RIP, Nelson Mandela. We shall meet again one day.

With roles in both the sci-fi and fantasy genre,she thoughtfully plays interesting and different roles not normally given to young women of color. At only the age of 15, she already has had a remarkable resume playing in two tremendously popular series: the Hunger Games and now Sleepy Hallow. Paired her sharp wit that can be seen in her clever tweets she has in a short period of time become quite a force to be reckoned with.
