BUT HE'S ABSOLUTELY RIGHT

Okay here’s the deal about my reaction to the new clip. I know some people are stressing that Isak was wrong for texting Even back “Stop texting me” and some people say he had every right. But here’s the thing, he was neither right nor wrong in his approach.

He doesn’t understand the specifics and the in’s and out’s of bipolar disorder(he was doing research before he texted) And he’s heartbroken. This was his first true, intense love and he’s under the impression it was all one-sided(thanks Sonja….Bitch)

So he isn’t ready to talk. I know some people are like Even can take that wrong, and he can, that’s an absolute possibility! Right now Even is feeling every feeling and emotion, and not only that, the emotions are raw and heightened. Basically his emotions are on speed right now.

He can take that rejection super hard and crash and do something harmful to himself because of it. But again Isak is neither right nor wrong because he doesn’t know this.

Another thing to take away from the clip is the lyrics to Cherry Wine by Nas. Now I don’t know if you guys are huge rap fans but Nas is one of my favorite rappers alive. His music always has a powerful message and the meanings are usually straight forward.

Now Cherry Wine is about finding someone. Not just any someone, a soulmate! Here’s a sample of the lyrics “I want someone who like the champagne I like. My a-alike, someone to talk me off the bridge any day or night” 

That is the first line and don’t tell me that doesn’t hold a deep meaning for Even and the reason he picked that song. Isak is his life savior and soulmate and he’s letting him know in his own way, what they had was and is real! Now excuse me while I cry because that clip was deep.

Remember their love is real….

P.S. here’s the lines Even texted Isak“Strong communicator, vagabond, I gallivant around the equator
And that would get me off the radar
It’s so intense, I’m on my Lilo and Stitch
Pour my Pino Grigio with some lime what is this?
An immaculate version of me and my baby
With all respect cause you the only one that gets me”

So I just realized I haven’t introduced you guys to my kitten yet! 

The little fluffball in the pictures is named Georgie! He’s actually 6 months old now and I got him at the end of July.

He has a ton of personality and enjoys climbing curtains, stalking the older cats, and playing with anything he can get his paws on. 

As shown on the middle picture on the right, he’s absolutely obsessed with potatoes. We have no idea why. We cannot leave a bag of potatoes out in the open because he will tear it open and play / beat / eat the potatoes. He also enjoys hiding them around the house. I found one in my bed last week.

But more than that he’s the sweetest little guy. I’ve never had a cat so loving and attached to me. Every night he either sleeps on my back or curled around my head. He has a bit of separation anxiety when he’s not with me but we’re working on it.

As cliche as it sounds, and I’ve said it before, my cats are a huge part of what keeps me alive. They truly bring me unreal amounts of joy.

Sy yeah! Meet Georgie!

Last night after Ghostbusters, I stopped to talk to one of the young men about my age. (We had previously established that we both had an interest in film, and he was a relatively well-mannered individual who gave me some recommendations for research websites.) We were both enthusiastic about the film and its quality, but suddenly he stopped and frowned.

“I’m just not sure about Kevin,” he said in confusion. “He’s kind of pointless, isn’t he? Why did they need a character like that? I’ve never seen anything like it before…”

I gaped at him briefly. “Haven’t you ever heard about the Dumb Blonde Trope?”

He wrinkled his nose. “Yeah, but isn’t that typically for…” His eyes got wide, and he looked at me in absolute terror. “Oh.”

“Oh” is right, buddy.

“I was just so excited he was coming up. He deserves to be on stage as much as anybody,” Beck said when asked how he felt about West crashing the stage. “How many great records has he put out in the last five years right?”

Even though he said Beyonce should have won? “Absolutely,” replied the humble musician. “I thought she was going to win. Come on, she’s Beyonce!”

And what about his diss that Beyonce is true artistry, and you’re not? “You can’t please everybody, man,” he replied. “I still love him and think he’s genius. I aspire to do what he does.”

Beck, responding to Kanye’s reaction to the Grammy results.

So can all the white boys champing at the bit for some kind of beef between Beck and Kanye chill? Each thinks the other is a genius and loves the other’s work, and both think Beyonce should have won. This is not a conflict between artists. This is Kanye being upset at the entertainment industry as an institution and a system.

ok rabbi joke time

so there are four rabbis arguing about torah interpretation, right? three of them agree one way while one of them says the opposite, and this rabbi is used to the other three disagreeing with him, yeah, but this time? this time he is absolutely sure that he’s right, and the other ones absolutely need to know that

so he prays to god, asking god “you need to send a sign okay? they need to know that i’m right, cuz they’re really wrong here”

and thunder crackles in the distance

“oh its nothing it’s just a storm”, the other three say, nothing divine about that

so he prays again, telling god “that wasn’t enough, i need something bigger, please”

and lightning strikes nearby

the other three scoff “oh c’mon, that’s just the storm getting closer”

so he prays one last time, saying “listen, that was really good, but i need something HUGE, something that can’t possibly be anything but you”

and lighting STRIKES the synagogue, the thunder shaking the earth, and an impossibly loud booming voice shouts out:

“HE’S RIGHT”

the other three rabbis say “yeah, but it’s still three to two”

can we please just take a moment to talk about the fact that baro from b1a4 chose kyungsoo as the most handsome member of exo saying that he likes his smile?? and that minah from girl’s day chose kyungsoo as her ideal type on two occasions?? also ken from vixx said he wants to become close friends with kyungsoo and 4minute’s jiyoon said kyungsoo was the most handsome male idol… basically all the members of btob love kyungsoo since he’s been best friends with hyunsik since high school, k.will said kyungsoo was his style, dongwoon from beast wants to see kyungsoo cross-dressing and super junior’s ryeowook has basically adopted kyungsoo as his own…. conclusion??? it literally does not matter who the heck you are, it is impossible to not love or at least be attracted to do kyungsoo 

HP reread XI: kacky snorgle
  • I think it says a lot about Things Us Muggles Don’t Know that when Harry mishears “Europa is covered in ice” as “Europa is covered in mice”, he doesn’t for one second think “wait a minute. that can’t be right.” he takes it absolutely in stride. he just copies it down into his notes and writes it in his essay like “yep. all over one of Jupiter’s moons. mice.” what weird things has he learnt about the universe that Europa being covered in mice doesn’t give him pause? what else don’t we know???
  • I absolutely LOVE how much Hermione gets Sirius. she’s 110% gung-ho cheerleading/spearheading the whole Harry Should Teach Us Defence thing until Sirius enthusiastically leaps on board and then she’s like “oh. Oh.” and starts FRANTICALLY REEVALUATING like, “whoa whoa whoa, okay, hold up guys! hang on a second!!! maybe we need to press the PAUSE BUTTON on this EXPULSION ATTEMPT until we find the Marauder-shaped FLAW in this PLAN!!!” 
  • sometimes I forget that Harry and Draco et al. are Teen Boys. well, okay, I don’t forget that they’re teen boys, but I forget that they’re teen boys exactly like the legions of teen boys I went to school with, i.e. they are Idiot Lads whom I DESPAIR OF. case in point: Harry flies into a rage because Draco Malfoy, Sore Loser, says that Harry’s mother’s and the Weasley’s houses smell. Draco makes a long-winded, poncey “your mum” jab and Harry gets himself banned from quidditch for life. honestly
  • at one point Harry is sitting, staring into the fire, wishing that Sirius’s head would appear and “give him some advice about girls.” Harry… I can safely say that you’re gonna be left hanging on that front. 
  • SPEAKING OF WHICH, I think it is ALWAYS worth mentioning that, for Christmas, “Sirius and Lupin had given Harry a set of excellent books”. I mean. wow, they… gave Harry some books. they both… gave Harry… haha. that’s so weird. I wonder why they both… together… gave Harry a joint present…?  I’ll give you a clue: the answer to this question and the answer to “why won’t Sirius’s head show up in this fire and give me ADVICE about GIRLS?” is the same. 
  • and Harry absolutely needs that advice about girls. at one point Cho approaches him about the fact that there’s a Hogsmeade trip on Valentine’s Day (probably after at least a fortnight of waiting for Harry to bring it up first) and Harry’s like, “oh. so there is. nice talking to you, Cho!” it takes SO LONG for the penny to drop that Harry has to sprint up a staircase to invite Cho to Hogsmeade with him. what bizarre train of thought did he ride on to have Cho Chang bring up Hogsmeade and Valentine’s Day in the same sentence and NOT wind up at the logical conclusion for at least a minute and a half? what goes on in this child’s head???
  • I am indescribably sad that Harry James Potter sat at the Gryffindor table and used a tablespoon as a mirror in which to do his hair and Draco Malfoy did not get to see this happen
  • while we’re on the subject of my favourite fledgling gay: Draco is so involved in glaring at/utterly distracted by Harry during their charms exam that he loses his concentration and smashes a wineglass. how EMBARRASSING. I bet he just wanted to DIE. he definitely had to put his head in someone’s lap and get his hair stroked about that one. keep your pecker up, kiddo! he probably didn’t even notice!!!
  • Harry risks life, limb, detentions and the skin on the back of his hand to break into Umbridge’s office and floo Sirius because he’s so torn up about his dad being a wanker, and Sirius and Remus are literally THE MOST UNHELPFUL THEY HAVE EVER BEEN. the two of them just go off into paroxysms of joy. like, “okay, he was a bit of an arsehole, Snape really deserved it, BUT WAS JAMES PLAYING WITH THE SNITCH?” “he was messing up his hair?! OMG!” “[in the fondest voice imaginable] he was an idiot! we were ALL IDIOTS!!!” “Lily LOVED James in the end! who WOULDN’T LOVE JAMES???” like, guys. reel it in. 
  • I think it’s quite sweet that Hagrid steals Harry and Hermione from a quidditch match to take them into the Forbidden Forest (in which there are, to name but a few: giant spiders that would eat them without a moment’s hesitation, angry centaurs harbouring anti-wizard leanings and a violent, 16ft-tall giant), and his only words of warning are, “Watch yerselves, now, there’s nettles.”
