I want you to imagine someone for me. Her name is Jessica and she is 17 years old. She lives in a two bedroom apartment with her mother and uses an old laptop she got from one of her mom’s ex boyfriends. With it, she browses the portals that serve as her connection to the community constructed…

At Codestarter, we’re on a mission to put a developer-friendly laptop into the hands of every kid that wants to learn how to code. Since we rely on donations to make this happen, the less expensive the laptop, the more of them we can deliver.
With this in mind, I set out…
I’ve seen lots of stuff I don’t understand but this particular video has me prisoner because I think it signifies something of import. Yes, it is a mash-up of Death-Metal, Kawaii, millisecond edits…
Post-Snowden carrier signal, if you’re into that sort of thing.
I understand the diaper thing, if a woman really changed a dirty diaper on the table that’s gross. Kim, where exactly are you eating?
Also? Weren’t you the girl who got peed on in a sex tape?
But I don’t want to talk about that.
What I’d like to talk about is this covering up while…
Dear Miley. I can’t stop listening to #GetItRight (great song, great message, great body), but maybe you need a quick grammar lesson. One particular line causes concern: “I been laying in this bed all night long.” Miley, technically speaking, you’ve been LYING, not LAYING, an irregular verb form that should only be used when there’s an object, i.e. “I been laying my tired booty on this bed all night long.” Whatever. I’m not the best lyricist, but you know what I mean. #Get It Right The Next Time. But don’t worry, even Faulkner messed it up. We all make mistakes, and surely this isn’t your worst misdemeanor. But also, Miley, did you know the tense here is also totally wrong. Surely you’ve heard of Present Perfect Continuous Tense (I HAVE BEEN LYING in this bed all night long [hopefully getting some beauty sleep?]). It’s a weird, equivocal, almost purgatorial tense, not quite present, not quite past, not quite here, not quite there. Somewhere in between. I feel that way all the time. It kind of sucks. But I have a feeling your “present perfect continuous” involves a lot more excitement than mine. Anyway, doesn’t that also sum up your career right now? Present. Perfect. Continuous. And Tense. Intense? Girl, you work it like Mike Tyson. Miley, I love you because you’re the Queen, grammatically and anatomically speaking. And you’re the hottest cake in the pan. Don’t ever grow old. Live brightly before your fire fades into total darkness. XXOO Sufjan
