Light-to-Dark Series: Clio, the Muse of history and poetry

Stories are written for friends and lovers. History is written from desperate winners and hopeless romantics. How many words are strung together out of endless sorrow and forsaken relationships? She knows the power words have over humanity and lets them drown in the emptiness of wanting more.

for @therepublicofletters

History is always written by the winners. When two cultures clash, the loser is obliterated, and the winner writes the history books-books which glorify their own cause and disparage the conquered foe. As Napoleon once said, ‘What is history, but a fable agreed upon?
—  Dan Brown, The Da Vinci Code

Capt. David Snyder and his wife, Karen, joined the 64th Regiment of Foot 41 years ago. “All of our history books at the time were written by the winners,” he says. “I love history, but I wanted to explore it from the viewpoint of the opposition.” While living a lifestyle with 200-year-old technology can be a challenge, Snyder, who makes most of his own reenactor clothes by hand, notes that the hardest part is maintaining accuracy through the years. “Research keeps revealing newly discovered information,” he says. “We frequently find that the way we have done things, or the uniforms we wear, have been wrong.” PHOTOGRAPH BY JERRY WOLFORD

ninnani  asked:

Im not surprised by any of the revelations I've had since high school. They say history is written by the winners, and it that just gets more true every time I turn around. No one cares about the truth, just the version that makes them feel better, and America is so guilty of that it's so sad. Thank god for the internet or we would never get any factual information bc fuck knows our education system is fucking useless

it’s kind of wild how different the education is throughout america too, like i grew up going to public schools in NYC and we learned everything, like all the dirty bad details of how fucked up america is but like my friend in north carolina had a history textbook that called the Civil War “The War of Northern Aggression” and i’m like what a fucking euphemism jfc

This whole ‘Seraphim/Malak are only used as tools’ plot in Berseria is very interesting to me, and casts a somewhat sadder take on Sorey’s belief that humans and seraphim used to co-exist peacefully.

I’m holding off on playing with this too much until I’ve finished Berseria, but man. I am really wanting something with Sorey as a fledging Exorcist, his partner Mikleo, and him becoming completely at odds with the church’s ways with the Malakhim.

  • Henry VII: I am going to make sure Richard the Usurper's name is forever blackened in history, for I am the true King of England.
  • William Shakespeare: I am going to write a play called 'Richard III'. He is a hunchback who seduced Lady Anne Neville over the coffin of her father-in-law; usurped the throne from his nephews; and died a coward in the battlefield.
  • Historians: The reputation of Richard III is a typical example where history is written by winners. He was a great king with strong sense of justice.
  • Historical fiction authors: Richard III/Richard of Gloucester is a handsome man who's loyal to the King and victim of a tragedy. On top of that, he's the husband of the century.
  • Actors: Which role can earn me an Oscar/Emmy/Golden Globe/Tony? I want to play Richard III!
  • Physicians: Scoliosis is a medical condition where your spine curves side-way. However, it does not mean that your life is over. Look at Richard III, he had scoliosis but he was a well-known battle warrior for most of his life.
  • Henry VII: What about Henry VII?
  • Everyone: Who's that? Oh the man who stole the crown from Richard III?

#ReadProud.

This June we’re celebrating the books that bring light to the reason that Pride Month exists. Read on for 8 YA books with extraordinary LGBTQ voices that crawled into our hearts and didn’t leave.

1. Stonewall: Breaking Out in the Fight for Gay Rights: An unflinching look into the history of the Gay Rights movement, starting with the Stonewall riots in 1969, which triggered an explosive demand for gay rights. 

2. Hold Me Closer: Irresistible, hilarious Tiny Cooper (from Will Grayson, Will Grayson) takes center stage in his own story, written as the most fantastic musical ever produced!

3. Grasshopper Jungle: Austin has equally deep feelings for his best friend and his girlfriend in Andrew Smith’s intense, complex Printz Honor book. 

4. I’ll Give You the Sun: You’ll fall for Jude as he vividly describes falling for the charismatic boy next door in Jandy Nelson’s Printz Award winner.

5. Vast Fields of Ordinary: Experiencing both true love with a mysterious new boy and unforeseen tragedy in one summer, Dade’s story is hopeful and heartbreaking at the same time. 

6. Everything Leads to You: Talented set designer Emi hasn’t been able to design a love life that’s more than make-believe – until a mysterious letter leads her to Ava. 

7. On the Count of Three: Nina, Avery, and Mel haven’t been apart since age 11, but when Nina comes back from a summer in California, she’s an outsider – because Avery and Mel have started dating. A bittersweet, honest look at first love and changing friendships.

8. My Most Excellent Year: When T.C. falls in love with pretty, sassy Al, it feels black and white – but for his best friend Augie, who’s drawn to a boy, it’s not so clear…even if its obvious to his family and friends. 

What would you add to this list? 

A Holocaust denier made an indirect post about me on here and said that I was a screeching Tumblrina because I said that I didn’t want to read/listen to David Irving (a prominent Holocaust denier) as it was something that personally distressed me.

Apparently, making your own choices about things is a SJW move now. And apparently, not wanting to listen to someone deny that your ancestors were wiped off the face of the earth is a bad thing? And I call them a Holocaust denier because in the post they said that they agreed with these historians, for the most part, and that they had uncovered so many lies in history and that “history is written by the winners” (because, as we know, all those persecuted Jews and Rroma, were winners and most definitely liars!!!!!).

Neruda (2016) Pablo Larraín

Neruda (2016), directed by Pablo Larraín and written by Guillermo Calderón. We see a story located two years after the Second World War, about an inspector, Oscar Peluchonneau, in charge of arrest the writer and Nobel Prize winner of literature Pablo Neruda who was a Communist party senator and was wanted by the use of oratory to denounce the abuses and inequalities of the system, causing government persecution and his subsequent exile to Argentina. Events that actually happened, however the Oscar character is not written in history, something that we get quite clear in a charming way in the movie.

Pablo Larraín manages to present a story based on real facts in a seductive and poetic way that will make you laugh with irony and snort of fascination at the delicacy and beauty of its photography. In the plate of colors predominated the cold colors, the blue and the violets ones, giving a magical and artistic touch that goes hand on hand with the tone used by the protagonist and narrator of the history, Oscar. I have to mention something that I founded quite curious and that I really liked, the way they presented the inspector. I might venture to say that they used some kind of fisheye lens or a fairly wide one. I should also emphasize the sequences used in the conversations between characters which I found quite interesting and innovative. As if it were a book of poetry.

Without much more than praise for this work I only have to recommend this movie to all lovers of art, poetry and ironic humor.

I’ve always learned in school that history has been written by the powerful, by the winners. Now, I start to understand that history has always been written by men, reflecting the male mind and ambitions. Now, I think it’s more than time for women to show their side. It’s not only about being a female director; it’s about values. I am a single mother who makes films. What is more important? I am very committed to cinema, but inside, I have no doubts that educating a child is a hundred times more difficult and important than making any film. You don’t get rich or powerful for that, but you get stronger, you get wiser, you get more real. This is a female point of view, and I am saying it not as a housewife, but as a film director.Anna Muylaert

KEMARI - COLLECTION

by various unknown artists

“Kemari is a ball game that is said to have come from China to Japan during the Yamato period approximately 1,400 years ago. There are no winners or losers in this game, the objective of the game being simply to pass the ball to fellow players.

In Japan, depending on the era of history, Kemari was enthusiastically played within the Imperial Palace, and written records of Kemari games can be seen in ancient texts and documents dating back to the mid-Heian period.

During the Kamakura period, in addition to the Imperial court, the warrior classes also engaged in the sport of Kemari, and through the Muromachi period to the Edo period, the game’s profile gradually increased, and it was mentioned in various places such as Noh theatre performances, Kyogen theatre, and Edo period novellas.

However, after the Meiji Restoration, Kemari declined in popularity and in 1903, with a donation from Emperor Meiji, a society to preserve the ancient game was established, resulting in the survival of Kemari to this day.

The performance of Kemari is shown to the public. On the occasion of the Kyoto Imperial Palace Public Open Day.”
