once you start to notice these little turns of phrase you literally can’t unsee them 
'protests turn violent'
'clashes with police'
'violence breaks out'
'rocked by blasts', when referring to gaza bombing 
all the nice vague statements that carefully avoid mentioning an actor, because it sounds worse if you do. this violence just spontaneously started happening, it’s crazy!!!!
i’m really tired of it

This is called “passive voice”. English teachers get mad about it. So does Microsoft Word. We should probably follow suit.

    These Doctor Who-themed engagement photos are too cute for words.

    TJ Mundell and Timmy Patterson of Dallas constructed a custom TARDIS and hired photographers Shaun and Shannon Menary to shoot in an appropriately gloomy warehouse in Deep Ellum. To complete the scene, Patterson dolled up as the Ninth Doctor (played by Christopher Eccleston) and Mundell went as the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant).

    Fittingly, Patterson’s proposal was something right out of a Doctor Who episode: “He proposed while we were hiking on a mountain in Japan last November,” recalled Mundell. “We were surrounded by monkeys and were almost killed by a giant Japanese wasp.”

    Patterson and Mundell will tie the knot on November 8 in Saratoga, California. [x]

    ohmygod, yes.

  5. Gracie (my dog) is the cutest. (Oh, yes, pit bulls are so scary.)

    Also, this kitten is up for adoption. Contact me if you or someone you know is interested in adopting her or her mother.

    P.S. This video has no sound.

  6. I’d buy a big house and fill it with cats.

    [Gifset: Laverne Cox speaks at the GLAAD media awards, she says,

    "Each and every one of us has the capacity to be an oppressor. I want to encourage each and every one of us to interrogate how we might be an oppressor, and how we might be able to become liberators for ourselves and each other."]
