lmfao my dad is watching sports animal and it’s this radio show that talks about tennessee sports but anyway they were talking about the vmas and this dude was saying that there was fifteen straight minutes of beyonce and that they didn’t even (his words not mine)

"cut to a girl with absolutely no rhythm dancing in the audience"

my mom and dad looked at me and at the same time they were all, “wonder who he’s talking about”

ummm idk who he would be talking about???

The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.

If you’re not going to comic con clap your hands.
*clap* *clap*
If you live no where near it clap your hands.
*clap* *clap*
if your favorite cast is showing and you’re dying ‘cause you’re not going.
then go ahead and cry and clap your hands.
*clap* *clap*

Tyler (on how Shelley and Tyler first met): My truly most embarrassing moment was when I went into the hair and make-up trailer, and I was aware that Jill Wagner who plays Kate was back on the show and I’d gone in. I had some stuff on my hands and hair, and I see this one getting her hair done, so it’s just this side hair thing and it’s very similar to Jill. And I came to give her a hug, just thought I’d run over and say hi. So I ran over, gave her a kiss on the cheek, turned, definitely not Jill, and I immediately went, “You’re not Jill, you’re not Jill, I just insulted you, I’m so sorry. Oh, my God, hi, I’m Tyler, nice to meet you.” 

Holland: In Tyler Hoechlin’s world, a kiss on the cheek is an insult. 

Tyler: I just invaded her personal space!
