let’s all take a minute to stop and think about how Hagrid gave Harry his homemade birthday cake, told him how much he looked like his parents, and fed him sausages before he even started to explain that he was a wizard

let’s stop to think about how his absolute first priority was to let harry know that he was loved and cared for

reality tv isn’t fake they put their bodies on the line

dudeguy uses tumblr, a platform and audience with amazing potential for new modes of community and interaction, for an uninventive marketing experiment geared to actively suck the fun and positivity out of tumblr hockey community; declares himself “face of nhl on tumblr”

#i hope everyone stays away from that exploitative no morals having dickhead

i’ve considered the council’s opinions, and i like to propose, that you all fight me, in my dad’s garage. my dad’s garage is surprisingly clean. my dad is okay with me fighting people in his garage. i am ready and willing to fight you in my dad’s garage. you like my dad’s lawnmower? his collection of vintage fishing rods? fuck you. pay attention to me. i’m trying to put you in a chokehold here. don’t be rude
