Leo D gets the O

And it's about goddamn time.

My dear, sweet angel, Leo D:

When I was watching Titanic for the first time when I was like six or seven with my mom, I cried because that dumbass Rose didn’t actually love you enough to scoot the fuck over. Everyone else and their Mom (like, literally) would jump into the deathly freezing water because why the fuck wouldn’t you? The character Jack Dawson was too good for that alternate universe.

I mean, I knew you were really alive, but I was so moved by your performance that you became Jack Dawson in my mind for a few years until I saw the next film that you were in (that I had access to), Catch Me If you Can. “Oh my gawd, he’s so charming,” I thought in my stupid 13-year-old brain, “I’d toooootally marry him. I probably have a chance after puberty … Yeah, definitely.” After puberty it changed to, “I’d toooootally tap that,” because it was like 2004 and that’s how we talked then, “but liiiike circa 1999.” Then a few years later, I realized you are perfect and age like cheese and I would do whatever you want.

Like, you wanna go get ice cream? Sure. Want me to read King Lear to you? Of course. Teach you how to play the viola? I’ll try, honey-buns. Lock you up in chains and run a sander over them honey buns?

W h a t e v e r y o u w a n t.

I digress.

When you won at the Golden Globes for Best Actor and “shared” it with all the first nations people and indigenous people all over the world? Be still my beating (and bleeding) social justice heart. And now you’re using your win as a platform to address climate change??? You ANGEL. I just checked your Facebook page and you posted about the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest oil spill (which has barely been covered by most mainstream media sources). I think I’m dead. I died. Goodbye. (jk, calm down.)
“His Smile was one of those rare smiles that you may come across four or five times in life. It seemed to understand you and believe in you just as you would love to be understood and believed in.”

Get it, Leo. You get it all day.

The Daily Word in Leonardo DiCaprio, Donald Trump and Starbucks

The Daily Word

The day has come where we bid farewell to what we thought would be never ending memes. Leonardo DiCaprio has finally one an Oscar. *tears of joy and support*

The day Donald Trump swallowed the foot he keeps shoving in his mouth.

Donald Trump may not be a big hit but these piñata’s definitely are.

Starbucks sizes are actually going to mean something in Italy.

Catch me putting away my bag of chips and actually sticking to my New Years resolution with this new fitness program coming to Albuquerque.

The future is now. Or just another ridiculous new trend.

The brilliant and wonderful Alan Rickman has died at the age of 69.

Let’s be real: Alan Rickman is probably Metatron now.

Some fans of David Bowie reminisce about what he taught them.

ISIL claims responsibility for a terror attack in Jakarta.

Straight pride parades, brought to you by bigoted, chagrined closeted people.

The Population Institute grades States on their reproductive rights. I’m pretty happy about New Mexico, but as a nation, we can do better.

Here’s a short history of Twitter rules.

An APD officer is suing the city for not promoting him after he wrongfully shot and killed a person. Wow.

Did you know a local Burqueno teen played Leo D’s son in his newest film, The Revenant?
