Here is a side by side comparison of how The New York Times has profiled Michael Brown — an 18 year old black boy gunned down by police — and how they profiled Ted Bundy, one of the most prolific serial killers of all time.

Character assassination much.

LETS PLAY A GAME. It’s called: Who directed it TIM BURTON or HENRY SELICK
We’ll start with the 2009 Laika film Coraline based on the novel by Neil Gaiman. Do you know who directed it? Burton or Selick?

Did you guess yet?

If you guessed Henry Selick, you would be correct. Tim Burton actually had absolutely nothing to do with Coraline at all in anyway ever. Reminder: Tim Burton has NOTHING to do with Coraline. At all. But that was an easy one. Let’s go to the Walt Disney Pictures adaptation of Roald Dahl’s novel, James and the Giant Peach next.

Think you got it? Are you sure? Better double check…

Oh, look. It’s Henry Selick again! Tim Burton actually interacted with this project, though only as a producer. Bet that was tricky… Next one! Let’s go to the Disney/Touchstone Pictures film Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Have you guessed it correctly? Have you really?

Yep that’s right. Even Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas was directed by Henry Selick. Though Burton wrote the poem and created the characters in which Nightmare was based he didn’t have much interaction with the project beyond that. At the time he had already signed off to direct the film Batman Returns and did not want to be involved with the “painstakingly slow process of stop-motion animation.”
Looks like it was a trick quiz. But now you know Henry Selick, whom people rarely know of is responsible for many of the most well known stop-motion animated films. The more you know!

This isn’t even being qeued. This is just being reblogged, because some of you still don’t understand who directed Coraline.

School is 15 hours per week. Work is 39.

I am tired all the time.
I am selfish.
I am done giving any shits.
I am bi polar
I am filled with anxiety
But also excitement

I don’t want to see people because they don’t get me.
They probably do.
Cody tries to get me to call my friends, but I just want to lay in bed when I have a day off

I am completely broke

I wish people would just be like, I’m coming over.
Don’t give me a choice. Don’t ask me when.
Just come over
I pretend not to care when I really do because it’s easier to not be attached to anything.

My fiancé loves me but I’m not even communicating with him, even though he is the love of my life.

He says I need to see my friends.
I think I just need to sleep

For a long time
Just nap for a few months until I can function socially again.

I used to be a social butterfly
And now I’m afraid of people. Literally being around people makes me… I don’t know.

It’s okay with strangers because they don’t really know me.

But my friends… My family… I’m so tired of having all this shit they have to deal with.
So I don’t want to be a burden in their life
So I won’t be in it.
I miss middle and high school.
When I wasn’t so broken.

I miss my friends.
They’re my family

But I don’t know how to be brave and see them
I want to be brave
