THERE’S SOMETHING DANGEROUS ABOUT THE BOREDOM OF TEENAGE GIRLS (listen)

You’re really just trying to get your heart to slow down.

You think, This is my body, and I can make it do things. I can make it spin, flip, fly.

After, you stand in front of the steaming mirror, the fuchsia streaks gone, the lashes unsparkled. And it’s just you there, and you look like no one you’ve ever seen before.

You don’t look like anybody at all.

anonymous asked:

Did you bookmark both things, sometimes flights or hotels get more expensive if they are in your bookmarks or if you have visited the websites a lot. It is kinda shitty, which is why I sometimes book stuff in incognito mode

Yup! All my browsing, booking, etc. has been in incognito mode. I guess it’s getting up to less than two weeks before my first flight, so that’s pushing the timing. Lesson learned for next time!

So in yesterday’s Bloodstained update, this was included:

“Enochian glyphs,” huh? Sounds and looks totally made up, right? Indeed. Only by some interesting guys named John Dee and Edward Kelley in the 16th century. Dee and Kelley were alchemists and general occultists, and their Enochian magic system would go on to influence late 19th century orders like that of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and more famous names like Aleister Crowley. It was called Enochian due to it being named after Biblical patriach Enoch, great-grandfather of Noah, who, in Biblical apocrypha such as his eponymous Books of Enoch, was said to talk and walk with angels. Likewise, Dee and Kelley alleged they could talk and summon angels as well. One of their products of such encounters was the Enochian alphabet, or “Angelic language”:

So what this means is that the glyphs in the update’s image can be decoded. Here’s what I got:

So let’s see here. “GIGARASHICO”? “ARASHICOGIG”? “COGIGARASHI”…!

“COGI…IGARASHI…” Look again at the alternate transliterations for Veh and Ged and it should be perfectly clear if it’s not already.

Well played, iga-bloodstained.

Patrick McHale, the creator of Over the Garden Wall, did a talk tonight at Amherst College.  It was really cool, and he was very nice, and I learned a lot about the animation industry and how some of our favorite shows came about! And, of course, a lot of backstory and interesting notes about OTGW.  Some highlights:

  • In the original concept, Wirt’s name was Walter.
  • The original plan for “Tome of the Unknown” would have had Wirt and Greg get on a train on Halloween, then realize that everyone on it was dead and jump off halfway through, stranding them in a limbo between life and death.  In this limbo world, there was a devil character - possibly the actual Devil? - with a book of stories that would allow them to understand the Unknown and reach home.  He promised Wirt and Greg that they could have the book… and then tore it up and scattered the pages to the wind, laughing “You can have them if you can find and reassemble them!”  The main story was Wirt and Greg trying to find all the scattered parts of the book, the eponymous “Tome of the Unknown.”
  • Patrick McHale says his favorite character is probably Sara.
  • He would have liked to do another series with Sara as the main character, but the way the show turned out it wouldn’t have really worked and never came about.
  • When they were doing voice acting auditions for Greg, for a while the favorite candidate was Sean Astin… the actor who played Samwise in the LotR movie.
  • Pat McHale says he has read that one post outlining all the Dante’s Inferno symbolism, and parts of it made him go “Yeah!  I’m glad you caught that!” and other parts “Well, that wasn’t intentional at all, but it’s a cool idea!”
  • Jason Funderberker’s outfit was based on McHale’s senior yearbook photo

Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! 

126 in x of animated feature film history
Release: Dec. 18th, 1966
Country: USA
Director: Chuck Jones

“This film is based on the eponymous children’s book by Dr. Seuss, the story of the Grinch trying to take away Christmas from the townsfolk of Whoville below his mountain hideaway. Originally telecast in the United States on CBS on in 1966, it went on to become a perennial holiday special.

Bitter and hateful, the Grinch is irritated at the thought of the nearby village Whoville having a happy time celebrating Christmas. So disguised as Santa Claus, with his dog made to look like a reindeer, he raids the village to steal all the Christmas things. When the Whos continue to celebrate even without their material goods, he has a change of heart and returns their belongings.

Dr. Seuss wrote the lyrics to all the special’s songs.”

jumpjirak: “A Visual Guide to St. Vincent’s St. Vincent”

A book I’ve been working on for a while, I created a visual translation and listening companion to St. Vincent’s eponymous album. This book takes the themes and concepts in her music a step further, bridging Annie Clark’s statuesque quality and stage choreography with colour, forms of technicality, sculptures, and Andrei Bely’s Russian Formalist Poetry. Posting the entire 92 page book online soon & more interior shots coming soon!

Poster premiere! Our new documentary HITCHCOCK/TRUFFAUT, based on the legendary eponymous book, premieres at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.

This special Festival poster features a photo of the two master filmmakers by legendary photographer Philippe Halsman.

Stay tuned for more info on the film’s festival premiere, as well as its release in the United States.
