fuckin' classic

i fuckin hate classical music playlists because fucking 99% of them are like “music to study to :]” and “relaxing playlist <3″ and “get~inspired” and fucking “instrumental tracks for rainy days” and then they play goddamn strauss tone poems or schumann or Mars or some shit and i want to just quietly take away someone’s computer and chuck it into a goddamn volcano because you know what??????? that’s how your fucking relaxing playlist INSPIRED ME ok buddy i cannot STUDY to fucking SHOSTAKOVICH because i just get distracted planning violent ways to TAKE DOWN THE SOVIET REGIME

Just finished marking a ridiculous number of midterms for a first-year Greek culture course, and like, I know that studying for Classics electives isn’t a priority for most students! But some of their answers legitimately made me laugh so. hard.

So here is a list of my favourite answers to the fill-in-the-blank question, “In the Trojan War myth, what is the name of the king of the Trojans?”

- Aga Agea Agemem Agememnon

- Arogon

- Prisma

- Harold

The Catcher in the Rye; J.D. Salinger

Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody’s around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I’m standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they’re running and they don’t look where they’re going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That’s all I do all day. I’d just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it’s crazy, but that’s the only thing I’d really like to be.”

you know what i love? that bit when timehop!todd is driving them to the perryman grand and making all the connections and loudly and enthusiastically vocalising and gesturing and he looks completely and totally animated in a happy way for the first time all season and we all know it’s gonna go to shit because dirk’s being way too quiet but we just get a fucking glimpse of how passionate todd can be about their cases and adventures and how fucking happy solving these problems can make him and its like a ray of sunlight in your life for about five minutes until it’s time to cry again

yeah yeah that’s some good shit right there
