I think it’s really fucking shitty that some asshole in the LAPD leaked pictures of Rihanna after Chris Brown beat her up. She’s already going through hell. Leave the poor girl alone. Domestic violence is not a joke, it’s not funny or cool to gossip about. Shame on the gossip sites for posting the photo.

Rihanna, stay strong girl. Chris Brown is an asshole and I hope he fucking goes to jail.

In my rage, I forgot to mention something very important. YA author Sarah Dessen said it best in her blog, so I’ll just repost here:
“5. Finally, I know this blog is usually all fun and games, especially on Friday, but some stuff on the news this morning has me thinking. There have been a lot of stories lately online and in magazines about domestic violence because of a recent incident involving celebrities. It’s bringing attention to the issue, so I wanted to take this opportunity to say this: if someone loves you, they do NOT HURT YOU. Period. If you are in a relationship that makes you feel unsafe or scared, tell someone. Tell a parent, a friend, a teacher, a clergyperson. There is help available. You don’t have to be alone.

(Sorry to end on such a serious note. But I know a lot of girls read this blog, and some things you just can’t emphasize enough.)”

One Year Later…

So a year ago a little band called The Format broke up.  It was devastating news, and I still haven’t gotten over it.  Luckily Nate now has Fun, and Sam is working on new musical projects.  Even still, nothing will ever replace this amazing band who ended far too early.  To mark the anniversary of the end Tom Gates (ex-manager of The Format) wrote an entry about The Format and their demise in his blog.  It’s a great read for fans of the band and anyone interested in the music industry.  Seriously, it nearly brought me to tears.  RIP The Format, you’re still missed.
