Ichabod and the adventures of the Internet (1x07)
Mostly, this show needs to refocused as a mismatched buddy cop story composed mostly of Ichabod dealing with the 21 century. Because Ichabod’s “WTF HAPPENED IN THE LAST 200 YEARS” moments are the best part.
Allie Brosh of the blog Hyperbole and a Half speaks to Fresh Air today to talk about dogs, drawing, and depression.
Brosh explains the way she portrays herself in Paintbrush,
It’s me on the inside. That’s what I’m like when I view myself. I am this crude, absurd little thing, this squiggly little thing on the inside. So it’s more of a raw representation of what it feels like to be me.

I love her so much.
Just to add with this with a bit of science, I went to a lecture on swearing once, and we were provided with a diagram of the brain. Swear words are, indeed, stored in the limbic system (the parts of the brain that deal with emotion). That’s why when we experience a shock, be it touching something hot or being given a surprise gift or having to suddenly swerve, we tend to swear on reflex. Just as an animal might mewl, we swear, because it’s the best audible sign of shock our body can produce, and the one most likely to make our emotions evident to other people, and hence receive help if we need it.
