I’m a-wonderin’ if she remembers me at all
Many times I’ve often prayed
In the darkness of my night
In the brightness of my day

So if you’re travelin’ in the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine

Stricklake having a super intimate moment with each other by slow dancing in a dark room while ‘Girl from the North Country’ by Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash plays on a radio (or Strickler’s own records, I bet he owns a gramophone) in the background. Bittersweetness ensues. Seriously, listen to this song, it’s them to a T and it HURTS.

‘Thor: Ragnarok’: Cate Blanchett Took Inspiration From Cosplayers for Hela’s Look

She’s played Queen Elizabeth, Bob Dylan, and elven royalty. So perhaps one of the few acting challenges left for Cate Blanchett is tackling a comic-book villain. She’s about to prove her Marvel mettle this fall as Hela, the Asgardian goddess of death who’ll wreak havoc in the November Avenger sequel Thor: Ragnarok.

Hela, who has had multiple incarnations in the comics, usually wears an elaborate headdress, but Blanchett also gave a lot of thought to how she’d look without her gear — and took some inspiration from fans online.

“When I was starting to think about how she might look, I went back to the fanbase,” said Blanchett, who recently spoke to Yahoo. “All these girls were doing Hela makeup looks on YouTube. I thought about what their takes on her were. I spoke to Marvel about what she would look like when she would be unmasked, so she wasn’t a faceless, generic baddie. They were very open to everything.”

Blanchett was first drawn to the project by director Taika Waititi and “his unique, slightly askew take on the universe,” she said. In Ragnarok, our hero, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), will battle Hela when she’s inadvertently unleashed on Asgard after spending millennia locked away. The scale of destruction that she represents is enough to unite the god of thunder with his seriously estranged brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and his Avenger rival the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), who’s along for this intergalactic ride.

The Marvel universe “needed a bit of a shakeup,” the actress said. “I didn’t realize until I got on the set that this is the first Marvel film incarnation of a female villain. What decade are we in? It was shocking to me. The character they created is ballsy and front-footed.” Hela also happens to be the reason Blanchett, 47, has some new street cred with her four children. “I earned a few brownie points,” she bragged.


request:  Omg I need a part 3 of Lie 😍😍 i’m really loving it, and your writing is amazing!! 💕💕💕

hello loves! this is the final part of ‘Lie’! i’ll do two more requests then i will post the final part to ‘Sorry’! keep sending in requests! hope you enjoy!

Harry was not raised to treat women as if they were dirt. He was raised in a female dominant household, meaning that the tow ladies always made sure that he was respectful, encouraging, and made sure he didn’t see himself as superior. And he never was, no matter how the media portrayed him. He was always respectful of the female gender, which is why everyone wanted to work with him, along with his talents. No one would have thought that he was capable of treating someone as bad as he treated Y/N. Harry didn’t even know he was capable of treating someone that badly.

He didn’t know why he did it, there was no logic to it. He could try and say it was because he liked her, but that didn’t make much sense either. You weren’t supposed to treat someone you cared about like they were the scum on the bottom of your shoes. You were supposed to try and win them over, with quick antidotes or flirty winks, not with the rolling of the eyes or quip remarks. He wanted to desperately know what made him want to do that, even though he had a slight inkling of why, but his reasoning still sounded ridiculous.

Me, But Happy (Jughead x Reader)

Based on lines from “Me, But Happy” by Neil Hilborn

I would like to thank you, personally, for always making me feel like I’m the King of the Pope of the whole world.

You ran through the forest clearing, chasing after your friend, Jughead. You’d just mourned over the demolishment of the Twilight Drive-In, giving a big middle finger to capitalism by spray painting yours and his initials on the building walls. A last testament to your love of the place. When you’d both heard about its demolishment, you were heartbroken. But running through the forest with Jughead, sirens of the Riverdale police in the distance, you began to laugh. What the drive-in created for you two, you would rebuild again. You knew it.

I wanna thank you for making all the love songs mean something again.

You cruised down the country road, Jughead in the passenger seat of your convertible. The warm breeze ruffled your hair, sunset in the distance painting the sky with passionate colors. The radio began to play “Make You Feel My Love” by Bob Dylan. Under his breath, in his smooth, tenor voice, Jughead began to sing along. You’d never heard Jughead sing before. You felt a smile grow on your face.

“Go to the ends of the earth for you, to make you feel my love,” Jughead sang the last line of the song with a content smile.

Suddenly, a song that was once blasé and trite to you was a song you wanted to hear over and over again, until the end of time. As long as Jughead was singing it.

“I really like George.” - Bob Dylan to Chris O’Dell, 1975; Miss O’Dell: Hard Days and Long Nights with The Beatles, The Stones, Bob Dylan, and Eric Clapton
“George got stuck with being the Beatle that had to fight to get songs on records because of Lennon and McCartney. Well, who wouldn’t get stuck?”

“If George had had his own group and was writing his own songs back then, he’d have been probably just as big as anybody.” - Bob Dylan, NME, 2007

“[George] was also Bob Dylan’s biggest fan. He could quote the lyrics to practically any Dylan song you could come up with.” - Jim Keltner, Rolling Stone, 2002

“George quoted Bob like people quote Scripture. Bob really adored George, too. George used to hang over the balcony videoing Bob while Bob wasn’t aware of it. Bob would be sitting at the piano playing, and George would tape it and listen to it all night.”
Q: “So George had his own private Dylan bootlegs?”
TP: “Yeah. One day George was hiding in the hedge at the house where we were recording. As everybody flew off, George would rise up out of the bushes with his video going. And he did that with Bob.” - Tom Petty, Rolling Stone, 2002 [x]

“He’s fantastic, you know. There’s not a lot of people in the world who I see from a historical point of view. Five hundred years grom now, looking back in history, I think he will still be the man, Bob, he just takes the cake.” - George Harrison, 1987 [x]

“I’ve always liked the way George Harrison plays guitar - restrained and good.” - Bob Dylan

“They had a soul connection.” - Olivia Harrison on George and Bob, Rolling Stone, 2011

“He was a giant, a great, great soul, with all the humanity, all the wit and humor, all the wisdom, the spirituality, the commen sense of a man and compassion for people. He inspired love and had the strength of a hundred men.
He was like the sun, the flowers and the moon, and we will miss him enormously. The world is a profoundly emptier place without him.” - Bob Dylan on George Harrison, Rolling Stone, 2002 [x]


Talking to Rolling Stone magazine, Dylan talked freely about Harrison’s struggle to find his voice within the songwriting collective of John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

“George got stuck with being the Beatle that had to fight to get songs on records because of Lennon and McCartney. Well, who wouldn’t get stuck?” he asked.

Dylan highlighted the writing talents of Harrison, saying: “If George had had his own group and was writing his own songs back then, he’d have been probably just as big as anybody.”- Quoted in an NME article, “Bob Dylan talks of Beatles friendship”, 16 May 2007

“I’ve always liked the way George Harrison plays guitar—restrained and good.”
-Bob Dylan to Ron Rosenbaum, Nov 1977


On this day in music history: July 25, 1965 - Bob Dylan performs an “all electric” set at the Newport Folk Festival in Newport, RI. Backed by guitarist Mike Bloomfield and members of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, this is a radical departure for the formerly acoustic based folk rock musician. Having released his fifth album “Bringing It All Back Home” in March of 1965, his first to feature electric instruments, it is immediately controversial among Dylan’s contemporaries. The act of a folk musician playing an electric guitar is considered by the audience to be musical heresy, and react negatively by booing Dylan. He leaves the stage after just three songs. The incident inspires Dylan to write and record the song “Positively 4th Street” four days later, a rebuke of former friends in the folk music community who have criticized him for “going electric”. Bob Dylan accidentally leaves the guitar that he plays during his set at Newport behind on the private chartered plane he travels from the venue on. The sunburst 1964 Fender Stratocaster thought to have been lost for over the last four decades, is found in the possession of the pilot’s family in 2012. The guitar is found with several sheets of paper in the case containing early drafts of several unfinished songs. The instrument sells at auction (from Christie’s auction house) for a record breaking $965,000 (to an anonymous bidder) in December of 2013. It surpasses the amount paid for the previous record holder, Eric Clapton’s black Fender Stratocaster nicknamed “Blackie”, which had sold for $959,000 in 2004.
