Bukowski | 40x50cm | Graphite on paper

If it doesn’t come bursting out of you in spite of everything, don’t do it.

Unless it comes unasked out of your heart and your mind and your mouth and your gut, don’t do it.

If you’re doing it for money or fame, don’t do it.

If you’re doing it because you want women in your bed,
 don’t do it.

If it’s hard work just thinking about doing it,
 don’t do it.

If you have to wait for it to roar out of you, 
then wait patiently.

If it never does roar out of you,
 do something else.

Unless it comes out of your soul like a rocket, 

unless being still would drive you to madness or suicide or murder, don’t do it.

Unless the sun inside you is burning your gut, don’t do it.

When it is truly time,
 and if you have been chosen, It will do it by itself

and it will keep on doing it until you die 

or it dies in you.

There is no other way.

And there never was.

Charles Bukowski

Shake It Off [Swiftpocalypse Edition]

I stay up too late, got Taylor on my brain
That’s what bloggers say, MHMM
That’s what bloggers say, MHMM

My dash is filled with spam, people goin’ ham
All my friends are goin’ cray, MHMM
My friends are goin’ cray, MHMM

But I keep scrollin’, can’t stop, won’t stop trollin’
It’s like I’ve got Meredith in my mind, meowing “It’s gonna be alright.”

Cause T Swizzle’s here to stay, stay, stay, stay stay
And she’s not just Tumblin’ for the day, day, day, day
Baby I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake shake
Shake it off! Shake it off!
Fan videos are gonna be made, made, made, made made
And we’re all gonna get hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake shake
Shake it off! Shake it off!

Hi taylorswift! We’re so delighted to have you on board! Littletswiftthings was one of the first really popular Taylor fanblogs on Tumblr- we’ve been providing our fellow bloggers with the little things they know and love about you for yeaaaaaaars now. (One of my personal favourites is post #1416.)

  • Becky started the blog way back in the day (and would love to be a tour photographer for you someday! Her blog is mostly you, Sugarland, and Queen Bey.
  • Molly (the lady writing this post and the creator of that parody song) joined a few months after Becky created it. I learned how to make GIFs for you, Taylor! Do you know how hard that is?! My blog is mostly photography, poetry, books, music, coffee- and you! I became a fan of your music while I was living overseas, and so I never got to see you live until RED in Nashville. You, lady, are magical. (My boyfriend says, if he ever gets to propose to me, he’s doing it during a show on the 1989 tour. No pressure.)
  • We brought Brooke on a few months ago to help us out, and she’s absolutely wonderful! She’s an aspiring singer-songwriter who wrote Tell Me Why on the benefit CD Rock for Ronan. Her blog is mostly you, hilarious text posts, and selfies of all the beautiful people we have here in the T. Swift fandom on Tumblr.

My first instinct was to say that you must be super overwhelmed by this, but then I remembered that not being fazed by thousands of people clamoring for your attention is basically your job. 

So instead, welcome! We’re so happy to have you here, in this terribly mad little corner of the universe. We love you more than you love sparkly dresses and getting the last word.

-Molly, on behalf of the LTST Team
