Stuff from Ross Bennett. Not the stand-up comic or the fashion designer, but a different one.

If Lynda.com Made a Course on Football

"Hello, I’m Ross Bennett and welcome to the Lynda.com course Up And Running With Football. In this course, we’ll be giving you the fundamental knowledge you’ll need to use and understand the game of football.”

[…]

"If you’re a Lynda.com premium subscriber, you’ll have access to a downloadable playbook containing all the plays we’ll be examining in this course."

[…]

"Before we get into the material, let me spend upwards of 30 minutes telling you what this course is not. You may have heard people from outside the United States referring to a game of football, but it’s important to understand that is not what this course is about. [Video image of handwritten word “football” being written in large, red, clumsy text and then being scratched out.] In the United States, the game the world calls ‘football” we refer to as ‘soccer.’”

[…]

"Up and Running With Football, Part 1: NCAA versus NFL.  Before we talk about the game of football, you should know there are really two kinds of football and their rules are sometimes different. We have College Football which plays using rules written by the National Collegiate Athletic Association, and Professional Football which plays by rules agreed by the National Football League.”

MISS OFFICER AND MR TRUFFLES coming soon this Summer maybe not. 

Oh! Please miss can we have more of this AWESOME comic?

Inspired by lemonteaflower’s last panel, I made this wee little animation:

This show needs to be real, and it needs to star Susan Calman.

Lazy Sundays. #AttackonTitan #KrunchHeads # Yeah!

Y’know, with the right Instagram filter, a tablet computer can look an awful lot like a lunchbox from the 1970s. I half expected there to be LSD in the marshmallows.

If you glance at that flexistraw too quickly, it looks like the koala is flicking the ashes off its cigarette. Which kinda goes with it.

But winter was coming.

Perhaps arrogant of me…

“There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.”

— Somerset Maugham (via ellenkushner)

I conjecture the three rules are:

  1. Write because you want to give your reader a gift. When you can do this, you will suddenly no longer need to find your voice; it will be waiting and ready for you.

  2. Write to your reader understanding that a gift for them is not necessarily what a gift for you would be. Do this because you understand the story is not about what is in the writer or reader, but what is common to all of us.

  3. Make the effort of craftsmanship part of your gift, but don’t obsess over it. Spelling, punctuation, style—these aren’t an end to themselves, but learning them as you go will make the gifts easier to give.

My theory is that if you do just these three things, then anything else can be forgiven. No shortcomings of construction, grammar, style, usage, arrangement, composition, cliché, awkwardness, banality, or illiteracy can beat them.

staythatswhatimeanttosay:

Hi everyone. As some of you who know me know (and some of you don’t!) I am working towards getting a service dog! I am diagnosed with Acute Anxiety Disorder with Panic and Agoraphobia. That sounds like a lot (and believe me, it is.) I’ve been taking steps in the past couple of years to make my life, and those who share it with me, better. Medication, therapy, and now my next step. 


I have been approved for and working with UDS Service Dogs over the past several months and I’m getting ready to move forward into the program. I’m in the owner-trained program, so this gets me out and doing hands-on with my future service dog. However, insurance doesn’t really cover these sorts of ventures. 

I’m not usually one to ask for help, but this is a costly endeavor and one that I think could greatly benefit me and my health. I am excited to move forward with the program, and look forward to how it can change my life. Every little bit counts, and I’m ready for it. :)

If you’ve been following along on my blog for the past few days, you’ll know that Kat and I have been going through some difficult times, namely in the area of health insurance.

Above is a link to a donation site to help my wife and I purchase and train a service dog. Asking for money was never, ever something I wanted to do, but I want so very much to try to help my wife lead a more fulfilled and active life. I know there are those who have expressed an interest in helping, and this is how you could, if you wanted. Any donation would help, of course, and even if you don’t have anything to give (believe me, I know how that goes) simply passing on the information would help. 

We both so appreciate your time and the love you have shown us already. Thank you so much.

Oo!  Reblogging!  That’s a good idea! Significational boostifying coefficient > 1.
