leafblower: (And by the way, nobody loves basketball more than me. I mean, NOBODY. But when an NBA player with two years remaining on his contract for a total of $44 million shows up for the season out of shape, complains most of the year, lets down his teammates and fans again and again, lands in some trade rumors and decides, “Instead of getting traded to a team I don’t like, I’m going to...
azizisbored: If you’re like me, you’ll confidently reblog this first, and ask questions later. And anyone who wants to take the pussy way out and give it a “like” - guess what? We’re done. On Sunday, I was apparently at the same party as Jason Statham and I didn’t see him or get a chance to say hello. I promise you, not a minute goes by where I don’t think about what could have been. ...

fimoculous: Leaked photos of the new Kindle. Looks sexy! (Release date: February 24.) Like most gadgets, I see it and it looks great and sorta want one, but I really can’t see how I’d get any use out of this sort of thing.
