the most calming advert ever

Lady Gaga on her new album...

"The album is my absolute greatest work I've ever done and I'm so excited about it. The message, the melodies, the direction, the meaning, what it will mean to my fans and what it will mean in my own life — it's utter liberation. I knew I had an ability to change the world when I started to receive letters from fans: ‘You saved my life...' ‘I'm gay and my parents threw me out...' My fans have related to me as a human being and as a non-human being - as a super-human person that I truly am." And: "Everyone tells me I'm arrogant but my music's the only thing I've got, so you'll have to let me be confident about one thing. I suppose that's what you can expect from the album: a lot of hit records that will piss people off. BeyoncĂ© said: ‘Where the fuck do you get these ideas from?' And I was like: ‘I don't know Bee, it was just the way I was born.'"

Awkward times at work

I was just sitting here reading a follow up to the most horendous sad story, a story that completely shocked me when it broke. The story about the robbers who tortured and murdered an entire family besides the father. Like, awful awful. I can't even imagine what would drive people to do that to others.

Well I was reading that and then my coworker said something really funny.

So my voice went to sigh from the story and then broke into a delayed laugh from my coworkers comment. What came out sounded like a broken fog horn. Everyone just stopped and went, what was that.

Awkward turtle.

Such a horrible case though. I think they should get the death penalty. They really deserve it.
