Me in Funko Pop! form! All pieces stripped and repainted. The head is the Eleventh Doctor from Doctor Who, the body is Fat Amy from Pitch Perfect, and the glasses are Cosima’s from Orphan Black. I even own this exact outfit. I’ll have to wear it and take comparison photos at some point XD
(and the blue “splotch” on the back of the left calf is one of my tattoos - not a mistake)

She asked of me to tame the oceans, for only then I would be worthy of her essence. I set sail for the horizon by dawn of the next day. Yesterday marked the eleventh eve since I failed to keep course. Today, sirens are reaching out for my sanity. They sing of how the oceans breathe to the rhythm of the moon.

On this day in music history: July 23, 1966 - “Let’s Go Get Stoned” by Ray Charles hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 1 week, also peaking at #31 on the Hot 100 on July 16, 1966. Written by Nickolas Ashford, Valerie Simpson and Josephine Armstead, it is the eleventh and final chart topper for the legendary musician known as “The Genius”. Having met each other at the White Rock Baptist Church in Harlem in 1964, Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson become bonded by their love of music, quickly becoming friends and songwriting partners before a romance blossoms between the pair. In 1965, they become staff songwriters at Scepter/Wand Records in New York City, then located in the building that becomes the future home of legendary disco Studio 54, often collaborating with their mutual friend, singer Jo Armstead. While hammering away at song ideas but not coming up with anything satisfactory, Nick blurts out to Val and Jo, “let’s go get stoned” (meaning drunk), making all of them laugh. But at that same moment, they begin spontaneously singing what becomes chorus of “Let’s Go Get Stoned”. The next day, their publisher Ed Silvers asks them if they have any new songs, and they play him the uncompleted “Stoned”. Silvers tells them if they can finish the song, that he could get Ray Charles to record it. Not believing he is serious, they complete the song and record a demo. The publisher passes the song on to Charles, who loves it and agrees to record it immediately. Ray records “Let’s Go Get Stoned” on December 5, 1965 at his studio RPM International in Los Angeles. Released as a single in May of 1966, the bluesy, swaggering “Let’s Go Get Stoned” becomes another smash for Charles. Entailing a bit of irony, it is Ray Charles’ first major hit since kicking his years long addiction to heroin. The song is also Ashford and Simpson’s first hit as songwriters, beginning one of the most celebrated musical partnerships (marrying in 1974), that lasts more than forty years until Ashford’s passing in 2011.
