Marilyn was a big supporter of the Civil Rights Movement. Ella Fitzgerald was one of Marilyn’s idols and a major inspiration. However, the Mocambo nightclub in West Hollywood, the most popular dance spot at the time, refused to let Ella perform there because she was black. Outraged, Marilyn told the owners that if they would let Ella perform, she would be there in the front row every time Ella was onstage. She did, and the two became friends.
According to the great Ella Fitzgerald:
“I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt…it was because of her that I played the Mocambo, a very popular nightclub in the ’50s. She personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she would take a front table every night. She told him - and it was true, due to Marilyn’s superstar status - that the press would go wild. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. The press went overboard. After that, I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was an unusual woman - a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it.”
IM FUCKOING WHEEZING

you’re doing the exact opposite
Just for informative purposes.
this is my friend Victoria who went to my school last year. She has been missing since 2 pm yesterday (5/14/13). We live in Massachusetts, close to the Boston area, so if you live there or have followers who live there, please keep an eye out for her. If you have contact with her or know anything about her whereabouts, please call 413-446-1442.
Will someone put your daughter in front of the television, so she can watch the game and get used to it from an early age?
I understand now
how can you not reblog this tho
Shot in the water.
Wow that’s awesome. But not going to risk my dad’s 1911 doing this. Or maybe I will
Don’t even fucking think of firing a 1911 underwater.
A Glock (Glock 22 in this particular case) can because it has maritime spring cups attached
You CAN shoot underwater but you are exposed to multiple risks, and you can even blow the gun, your arm, or a lung (water pressure)
Use ONLY 9mm FMJ ammunition
Don’t even THINK of using hollow point, .45 or any other caliber, unless you want to lose an arm, OR your life.
Don’t even shoot near a wall
Soak and submerge the pistol for a long period to prevent the gun having air in the chamber because that can literally make the gun explode.
Seriously, owning a gun is a great responsability and if you’re to attempt this you better be fucking trained for it and know all the hazards and know-hows
Trying to copy what you saw in a gif could cost you your life.
thank u smart gun guy
if this picture of me gets 14 million notes ill do a thing
the amount of notes is actually kind of scary though
we dont even know what the thing will be
or if this guy was serious in the first place
we just want to find out I guess?
200 THOUSAND MORE COME ON I WANNA SEE THE THING
Obviously, the issue here is the way Keith dragged gender into the brushoff.
The “you never played the game” card is a common one in these postgame reporter/athlete duels, and while it’s douchey, there’s really nothing gendered about it. That’s the sort of surly, pointed attack you’re always at risk of getting from a player on the losing side. It’s an unpleasant part of the job.
But when gender’s at the heart of it? That’s something else entirely, and it should never be part of the job. Keith’s shot was framed in the context of Thompson’s womanhood — the suggestion was that she doesn’t know the game because she’s a woman, and that’s ridiculous.
I’m not sure what sort of importance the league places on something like this but, to me, this is the sort of thing that needs to be addressed and perhaps given some kind of supplemental discipline. Maybe a fine, just as a reminder to all the players that bringing up someone’s gender in this way — or really any element of otherness, be it colour or sexuality — is completely unacceptable.
