Richard Ayoade has signed a three book deal with publishing house, Faber & Faber.
The first of the books will be called Ayoade On Ayoade, and is scheduled for publication in November 2014. The book is described as being about “a film-maker exploring himself, respectfully, insightfully, and sometimes by surprise….it is both a celebration and a slap: a call to arms for those without weapons. It is a eulogy; it is a rebirth; it is both recognition and re-ignition of this flickering myth we call film.” Blimey.

I love this man so hard. I heard Chris O’Dowd on NPR today talking about his role as Lenny in Of Mice and Men on Broadway. More please!

The full list of upcoming marvel projects which can be found on IMDb. There is a distinct lack of hulk here. However there are lots that I’m really happy about.

#25 COULD MEAN BUDAPEST

You know what’s kinda shitty? Black Widow is 24th on that list. Not a solo female superhero for days.

Nearly Half Of All Jailed Youths In New York City Have Brain Injury
About half of all 16- to 18-year-olds coming into New York City’s jails say they had a traumatic brain injury before being incarcerated, most caused by assaults, according to a new study
"You need to train the correction officers to understand brain injuries so that when somebody may be acting rude or answering back or forgetting what they’re supposed to do, it’s not a sign of maladaptive misbehavior or disrespect, it’s a sign of a brain injury," said Wayne Gordon, a brain injury expert at New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital.
The peer-reviewed study was based on medical brain injury questionnaires given to 300 boys and 84 girls inside the nation’s second-largest jail system in 2012.
The study found nearly 50 percent of both boys and girls reported traumatic brain injuries that resulted in a loss of consciousness, amnesia or both. And they said 55 percent of those injuries were caused by assaults.
Brain injuries are often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed because people with them don’t necessarily show obvious, immediate signs of injury. 
A growing body of research shows that inmates whose brains have been jolted by trauma are linked to higher rates of breaking jailhouse rules, substance abuse and greater difficulty re-entering society after detention.
An estimated 60 percent of adult prisoners have a brain injury, according to a study of prisoners in South Carolina. Not all correction departments screen inmates for the injury — a practice public health officials say should change.
Nearly 4,000 adolescent inmates were admitted into custody on Rikers Island in 2013 and about half return within a year of being discharged, the city Department of Correction said.

I wonder when these brain injuries occurred and who played a part in them…hmmmmm

My question was before or after?

u make me want to change my ways. now i see that theres a face behind all those people i hate. and its an ugly ass face

I think half the story behind these photos is why Saddy McWhiteman is taking these HI-larious selfies in his high school’s locker room. Is he living at school because even his parents couldn’t stand him any more? I need to know more of his backstory!

Also, why does he have fifty different jars of lube back there? How much lubrication does one dildo need?

Anastasia

Favorite Characters - Vladimir & Sophie

god Sophia had a double chin and bingo wings and a booty like a shelf and she was still hot as fuck. and Anastasia was hot. and the empress was hot. All the ladies were pretty but totally different sizes and ages and things were wonderful.

Sophie wasn’t just on screen to be fat and funny. She was depicted as actually DESIRABLE. I was a little stick of a child when this movie came out and that definitely effected my views of beauty. As a much thicker adult it still means a lot to me now.

^ SO MUCH THIS

It made me SO happy to see a lady who wasn’t super skinny still being portrayed as being sexy and desirable…

We need more movies like this…with characters like this, who aren’t just treated like walking punchlines because of their bodies…

Va va va voom.

'It was the ultimate selfie': Father speaks out about why a photo of him taking care of his daughters became an internet sensation

  • A photo that Los Angeles, California blogger Doyin Richards posted of himself cradling one daughter in an Ergo while doing the other’s hair recently went viral
  • The post sparked vicious comments about his race and that of his children, who are half black, a quarter white and a quarter Japanese.

Father-of-two Doyin Richards has opened up about why he believes a picture of him taking care of his daughters became an overnight internet sensation.

When the Los Angeles, California resident shared a photo of himself cradling his baby three-month-old girl Reeko in an Ergo while brushing the hair of his other daughter Emmyko, three, he was shocked to discover that it sparked nasty comments about his race.

'I took the ultimate selfie,' he said of the internet's impassioned reaction in a Today show appearance. ‘There’s race, there’s fatherhood… there’s all types of things that go into it.’

Explaining how the multi-tasking situation came about, he told the hosts that he was on paternity leave when his wife, who was getting ready for work, didn’t have time to do their daughter’s hair.

'I said, listen, I've got this. So I put the little one in the Ergo and then I had (my older daughter) come over and I was combing her hair.' he recounted.

'And I thought there's no way my wife is going to believe me…  so I took the ultimate selfie.'


Little did he know the passionate response he would inspire by posting the photo on his Facebook and Twitter pages.

Within hours, the photo had thousands of views, ‘likes’, shares and comments - some of them from awe-struck fellow parents, and others overwhelmingly negative.

Some commenters took issue with the color of his skin, making cruel assumptions about his lifestyle.

'I would bet anything that you're a deadbeat,' one nasty commenter wrote on his blog Daddy Doin’ Work, while another said: ‘Cute picture. Now why don’t you hand the children back to their mom so you can go back to selling drugs or your bootleg rap CDs?’

But many reacted in the same way as Today hosts Al Roker and Carson Daly: complete and utter admiration.

Indeed, Mr Roker greeted the doting dad as ‘my hero’ when he came on, and Mr Daly said jokingly: ‘Thanks for setting the bar so high. Now when we can’t do something, our wives will just say, “Well, Doyin does it!”’

When he originally posted the photo, some commented on the fact that his children, who are three months old and three years old in the photo, don’t share his exact same skin color.

'He probably rented those kids. They don't even look like him,' one commenter said about his daughters, whose mother Mariko is half-white and half-Japanese.

 

Surprisingly, Mr Richards notes that many of the people posting racist comments were actually black men like himself, who had negative things to say about his mixed-race wife and daughters.

To these people, Mr Richards hit back in a response called ‘I Have a Dream’ on his blog. ‘You’re a damn embarrassment to Dr King and his legacy.’

The father-of-two added: ‘If the first thing you want to do is to criticize the skin color of my kids for not being as dark as mine, you have some serious issues.’

Despite the negative reactions, Mr Richards told Katie Couric that he hopes his picture can generate a conversation about parenthood and a father’s role in their child’s life.

Hitting back: ‘Grow up and stop being so f****** ignorant,’ he wrote to his critics, many of whom are black men like himself. ‘You’re a damn embarrassment to Dr King and his legacy’

Taking a stand: The devoted father-of-two added: ‘If the first thing you want to do is to criticize the skin color of my kids for not being as dark as mine, you have some serious issues’


We really need to change the narrative on what fatherhood is all about, get more changing tables in men’s bathrooms, do all these things to help celebrate the great dads of the world,’ he said on her talk show, Katie

'Enough of the negativity. We need to get the great dads of the world, and let them know that there's more out there. I'm just one of many.'

His powerful ‘I Have a Dream Post’ garnered more than 230 comments on his blog, with many of his followers showing their support for him.

'What enrages me about this situation is that it only became a negative situation because you're a non-white dad raising mixed race kids,' wrote one mother-of-seven from Mississippi.

Good parent: ‘We really need to change the narrative on what fatherhood is all about, get more changing tables in men’s bathrooms, do all these things to help celebrate the great dads of the world,’ he said

Backlash: One of his supporters commented: ‘I can’t believe anyone would look at a picture like this and find a way to take issue with something. Spending time actually raising your kids is a gift’.

The photo you posted melted my heart. It drew negative attention because you’re not supposed to be a positive influence in their lives,’ she wrote.

'You're supposed to be a dead beat… because that's what the societal mold would dictate, and they don't know how to process the fact that you don't fit into it.'

One fellow doting dad said that he could relate to his dedication to parenting. ‘Many fathers relinquish parenting duties to the mother, and take a back seat,’ he wrote. ‘This was never what I had in mind for my own child.’

Another commented: ‘I can’t believe anyone would look at a picture like this and find a way to take issue with something. Spending time actually raising your kids is a gift for both you and them.’
