eccentricities

Solitary Kingdom by te5seract

Dedicated to my lovely friend Ashley @drxgonfly
In a very short time you’ve become an incredibly dear friend to me - to the point that a day would be very empty if we weren’t to exchange in our casual eccentric banter. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me! Have an amazing birthday! I hope it’s a wonderful day - you deserve it.

Houses, like people, are apt to become rather eccentric if left too much on their own; this house was the architectural equivalent of an old gentleman in a worn dressing-gown and torn slippers, who got up and went to bed at odd times of day, and who kept up a continual conversation with friends no one else could see.

Outgrowing fear of ugliness is so liberating my whole life or worth has been built around maintaining an image of beauty and upholding the expectations set out for me, both familial and societal. Being “conventionally” pretty and being able to assimilate always felt like a key to survival and the cloth to stifle my screams, not to sound dramatic. There are so many interests I was deeply ashamed of and dropped when I had begun to slowly master them because I was afraid they made me ugly, so many things I enjoyed in secret and never even connected with friends over (now in adulthood I share, but I mean when I was in middle school) because I knew how people were tormented for any visible eccentricity and I feel deeply remorseful that I wasn’t comfortable being myself until so much later in my life, all the talent and passion squandered because I was afraid of ugliness it’s almost pathetic but it’s mostly upsetting, and I’m happy I’m okay with myself now.

PSA

Honestly, let women be ugly. Let us be eccentric in how we dress, let us take up space. Let us have body hair, even if it’s a lot, and let us hold our broad shoulders robustly and speak loudly, confidently, without hesitation or apology. Let us never pluck our eyebrows, or use ridiculous “anti-ageing” creams on our faces, or wear uncomfortable shoes. Let us be strong, and let us get messy as we passionately explore the world around us: without shame, without coquetry, without having to ceaselessly perform.

We are not your barbie dolls; we are not here to make you want to protect us. We’re powerful, eternal, valiant. And deep down, we’re ugly. Let us be so.

(Semi) Prog bands as high school stereotypes
  • Emerson Lake & Palmer:The group that wants to be really cool and edgy but are really just a bunch of try-hards.
  • Led Zeppelin:The ones that are cool and edgy without trying.
  • Queen:The art and band geeks.
  • Yes:The g-tech kids (some of them are the way-too-eccentric art kids).
  • Genesis:The preppy kids.
  • King Crimson:The hipster kids.
  • Dream Theater:The artsy/emo kids.

P is for priceless, the look upon your faces!
E is for extinction, all your puny races!
R for revolution, which will be televised!
F is for how f**ked you are!

Now, allow me to reprise!

E is for eccentric, just listen to my song!
C is for completion, that I’ve waited for so long!
T is for the terror upon you I’ll bestow!

My name is Perfect Cell, and I’d like to say.. [End Titles] hello!

THE MEMBERS OF ZENITH ARE LOOKING FOR MEMBERS!

Who is ZENITH?

Zenith ( noun ) - (1) the highest point reached by a celestial or other object. (2) the point in the sky or celestial sphere directly above an observer. Zenith as a group is to be regarded as celestial beings, 4D ‘aliens’ so to say.
All the girls are a bubble of eccentricity, regarded as some of the most interesting, and nicest collection of talented girls in the industry. Along with their great personalities, each girl was hand picked over years to be part of the group, with each being the best in their field of practice at a young age. With an age range of sixteen to twenty at the oldest, these girls are poised to take over the industry with catchy music, well performed and complicated dance routines, and variety worthy personalities. This is one of two groups, along side BGBs, to make a statement against TQ’s reputation of having only artists with bad personalities, and terrible reputations. That TQ artists can be nice, and sweet, and lovable in personality, keep their noses out of trouble but also fierce with fantasy and fun, unique, interesting, and sometimes down right weird themes.
Think of: EXO, Orange Caramel, After School, Twice, (early) SNSD, Mamamoo, SHINee.

anonymous asked:

I can't find pansexuality in the FAQ. What are your thoughts about it? I heard a rumor that Deadpool is canonly pansexual but I can't get what is the differnce between bi and pan.

I think it’s kind of useless but it doesn’t bother me much. Sometimes tho it seems to be a subculture thing in a way, flower children and people who tend to claim a more “open” outlook on life…eccentrics….Probably make their own soaps and shit.. but I rarely see pan people getting all self rightious and shit so idgaf.

People call this pov transphobic but w.e, the difference is pan is more explicitly inclusive of trans people by definition, as they don’t really care what a person is as long as they vibe well. When someone says they are bi there is a possibility that they mean strictly cis men and women. So I mean…it has its uses.

But for some reason saying that just summons people screeching at me “trans men and women ARE men and women therefore-” 😴 noone is saying otherwise yknow, js there is that slight distinction.

As the receptionist for Interlude, it is Psecros’s job to get all of these unruly children to take a number, find a seat, and mind their manners until they can be dealt with in a calm and orderly fashion.

We are always grateful for the seemingly endless patience of our automaton assistants, eccentric as they may seem.

“Her recollections and her feelings became a beautiful story to tell,” says photographer Tony Luciani’s (@ynotphoto256) of collaborating with his 91-year-old mother, who now lives under his care, “I noticed how alive she felt by participating; her youthfulness and eccentricity started to show through.” // #motherandson #blackandwhiteisworththefight #blackandwhite #fineart #portrait #jumprope http://ift.tt/2a47f6q

Why did the children wear masks?

“I love and adore my children. They mean everything to me. When they’re in public though, I conceal their faces because I want my children protected. At home, they have a normal life, they play with other kids and they have a good time, they’re laughing a lot. They run around, they even go to school. It’s a normal life for them. But in public, I must protect them.” -Michael Jackson, 2003

Up until Michael Jackson’s death in 2009 (when his daughter, Paris, famously took the stage during her father’s funeral and broke the hearts of everyone watching with her touching speech), hardly anyone knew what his children looked like. They always appeared in public sporting various masks and veils to conceal their identities which, much like everything else Michael Jackson did, was widely ridiculed, questioned, labeled “bizarre,” and made fun of - often with no attempt at all made to understand the intention.

The masks were simply used as a way to ensure his children’s anonymity and safety. They would don masks when appearing with Michael in public, and then if the nanny or body guards wanted to take the children out, they could do so without being followed and harassed by paparazzi.

Paris Jackson, 14, talked to Oprah about her thoughts on the masks:

Paris: “[When I was younger] I was really confused, like, I didn’t get why I was wearing a mask. But I understand it now, why my dad would want our faces to be covered. When we went out without him, we wouldn’t be recognized and we’d have a normal childhood.

Oprah: So, you would only do that when you were with your dad, and then when you weren’t with your dad, you could go out and people wouldn’t know who you were… smart. Smart.

Just your average father responding to extreme circumstances and doing whatever it takes to protect his children. 

What a weirdo, right?

Eccentricities During The Night

Eccentricities During The Night Elaine Gibbs had noticed something very odd in her husband, Bobby’s behaviour.  The eccentricities occurred each night when they kissed goodnight to one another.  After this, he would just get up and go somewhere at odd hours during the night.  By early morning, he would return to bed once more as if nothing had happened.  At first, Elaine thought that perhaps it was a…
