Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz was so hooked on drugs just two years ago, he didn’t expect to live past the age of 27. Wentz claims he, his band mates and music bosses fully expected the bassist to die at 27, like his rock heroes Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin and Kurt Cobain.

The 29-year-old says, “I spent most of the year I was 27 toxic, just completely over-medicated. I was stoked to make it past 27. Everyone was really worried. My management company were panicked, because I was out of the office, and ‘pharmaceutically engaged’.”

Bandmate Patrick Stump confirms his claims: “There was a countdown clock and everything. I remember, our manager called me up on Pete’s 28th birthday and screamed, ‘We made it!’”

“some historians think that michelangelo was drawing god in a human brain. very few people knew what one looked like at the time; but michelangelo had dissected cadavers and would have known. it even has the hint of a brain stem. if true this would have been a great “fuck you” to the pope whom he was not friendly with but also would have meant god was in a human brain, or created by man.”

Interesting.

also michelangelo painted a baby angel flipping off the pope

the blond one, you see his right hand? that’s called the fig and it’s an old world european gesture for ‘fuck you” because apparently Pope Juluis II was a total raging asshole and everyone hated him

but nobody ever noticed this little fucker because the ceiling was so high

and then thirty years later they called michelangelo back to paint the wall behind the altar and he wasted no time in painting the gates of hell behind the pope’s chair

what a badass

It amuses me to this day how much Michelangelo hated his job

He didn’t hate his job so much as hated the people he was doing the job for.

Rebloggong because this makes for a kickass theory.
