anonymous asked:

poetry book recs, kind sir?

ooooooh YES!! 

ok so I’m going to leave out stuff that’s Too Obvious, which means a lot of this is niche (to me) or contemporary, and… I recently had a canary on twitter about how much ~*~modern~*~ poetry GETS MY GOAT. I’m reading a lot of New poets/collections this year purely because I… didn’t really read that much contemporary stuff before, and I thought I should branch out. (so far I’m dubious.) so, yes – obviously Plath, Blake, Hughes, Sappho, Eliot, Keats, Shelley, etc. etc. ad nauseum, The Greats, yadda yadda, here’s some others.

so far this year I’ve read (and ENJOYED - I’m not reccing the ones I wasn’t into/thought were pants, soz): 

  • Letters From Medea by Salma Deera
  • Grief Is the Thing with Feathers by Max Porter
  • Hold Your Own by Kate Tempest (I actually LOVED this) 
  • Mouthful of Forevers by Clementine von Radics
  • War of the Foxes by Richard Siken (of YOU’RE SITTING IN A CAR WITH A BEAUTIFUL BOY, AND HE WON’T TELL YOU THAT HE LOVES YOU, BUT HE LOVES YOU fame) 

I’ve also read and loved:

  • Teaching My Mother How to Give Birth by Warsan Shire
  • The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy by Tim Burton
  • The Curse of the Vampire’s Socks and Other Doggerel by Terry Jones
  • Love Poems by Carol Ann Duffy
  • Let Us Compare Mythologies by Leonard Cohen

my personal 10/10 all-time go-tos are:

  • Crush by Richard Siken (despite appearing on every single tumblr graphic between 2011 and 2013, it still gets me in the heart guts)
  • The World’s Wife by Carol Ann Duffy (which I have loved wholeheartedly since I was 17 years old)
  • pretty much any collection of Great War poetry: Up the Line to Death, Men Who March Away, Lads: Love Poetry of the Trenches (the Great War poets are my favourite. like, of all poetry, ever)

my favourite individual poems, as we’re on the subj, are: 

finally, a heads up: youtube literally anything by Brave New Voices, sit back, prepare to be Shook. ‘Transcript of Civil Rights’ by Shanita Jackson and Dakota Oder still DESTROYS ME five years later.

THERE YA GO. not much, but not nothing! enjoy!! maybe?!?

Andi: Where we ever?

Me: YES GIRL, TAKE YOUR INDEPENDENCE. YOU DON’T NEED NO JONAH! YESSSSSSSSSSS

Andi, like a week later: *is now dating Jonah*

Me: Damn it, Andi.

so i drew my own puffles today

i miss them

Dude, as an American guy I don't get your thing for American girls, they're mostly fat or entitled or obnoxious and don't care for their men, some times all at once. Russians, Asians or Latinas are the way to go if you want wife material and not some chick trying to be a man.

That was an old post that got random ass reblogs a few days ago after being dead for months.

And I’m absolutely smitten with @ellactra so I actually do already have a wife-material Latin girlfriend 😍👌 you’re 100% right with that statement.
That post can stop getting reblogs now please, thanks.

Hang on,

So people have an issue with an age gap of 8 years between Finn and Poe but don’t with a 10 year age gap between Han and Leia?

Keep in mind that Leia was 19 when she met a 29 year old Han but that’s fine and a 24 year old Finn meeting a 32 year old Poe is bad?

Alright, makes complete sense

If your kid can't do basic math they are not old enough to come into the store on their own. I don't care if they're 6 or 16, can't do math, shouldn't be allowed. I don't mean forgetting to add tax and coming up a little short that happens to everyone sometimes. I mean the ones who don't know they can't buy $20 worth of candy with a $5 bill and waste everyone's time.

The thing I still don’t understand about JL is why Barry has a hideout with all that fancy equipment and that expensive suit. Like, who sponsors him? He’s not even a CSI yet, right? Which also makes me wonder how he became the Flash in the first place.

i know no one is going to see this but please stop copying and pasting/screenshotting whole articles on here. journalism is a dying business and those sites rely on people actually viewing them to survive. put a single quote and a damn hyperlink it’s not that hard

HAVE I MENTIONED HOW MUCH I LOVE THESE TWO

Handling his dual blade lightsaber, Maul came close to Rey and in his soft voice said “Find my bones in Tattooine. Take them to my ancestral home of Dathomir and I can teach you the ways of the force far better than that old fool Skywalker and his simpering nephew ever could. Help me and together we’ll rule this galaxy, my dear apprentice”

Rey woke in a cold sweat. A dream, yes. But also a promise to be powerful might be too good to pass up.

anonymous asked:

I told my guy friend who's really into movies that idgaf about woody allen's movies and have no real desire to watch them beyond being able to discuss them and he was like ???? How! They're so good! They've got female leads! Like sorry I don't care about some weird predatory old man's boring-ass perspective on women?

the tea is that about 90% of the movies considered “classics” were made by old rich cis straight american white men and therefore only brings THAT perspective to the table. and just because something is hailed as a classic doesn’t mean we can’t be critical of it. cinema is still in it’s infancy as an art form and to act like only This perspective and These movies made by These men are all that’s worthwhile, and now they claim that cinema is ‘Dying’, is some pretentious bullshit and i won’t put up with it! i’m tired! watch the classics, criticize and/or praise them, and move on. there are much more brilliant, creative and diverse films being made and will continue to be made, and honestly i’m kinda glad the crusty old fucks won’t be around to judge them

Shit I've Heard In Class (Part Five):
  • "Does that make me not gay?"
  • "Oh, classical guitar—this must be very serious music."
  • "I must admit that I have wished death upon a random stranger before."
  • "Fuck men—literally, not literally, whatever blows your bubble."
  • "That's beautiful—to me. That's delicious—to me. That's hideous—to me."
  • "Wham—bam—that was fun—don't ever call me."
  • "This is not a beer."
  • "And then she dies."
  • "What else matters besides money? Nothing?"
  • "It's not even that hard to commit a felony."
  • "I'm shocked—why am I shocked? Why am I shocked? I'll tell you why I'm shocked, it's because I'm stupid, that's why I'm shocked."
  • "Can I disagree?"
  • "You were just a virgin."
  • "This is why you don't mix work and goofer dust."
  • "Should you fall asleep I will sneak over to you and write on your face."
  • "I'd like you to see that I'm different from you."
  • "If I don't win I'm not the hero."
  • "The teenage girls loved it; they didn't know the difference."
  • "It's perfect for the background of your rap."
  • "If you tell on me I'm totally not gonna like you."
  • "You said the same thing twice."
  • "This is an embarrassment, actually."
  • "The problem is sexual tension, there's too much of it."
  • "I'm making a statement about cultural relativism."
  • "Your math teacher doesn't care what you believe."
  • "They're a bunch of old fuddy-duddies."
  • "I can spell THAT."
  • "He was speechless or stoned or something."

I’M SO FUCKING SALTY OVER THIS

There was no good reason for Treehouse to cut those parts out of their S Support. Those lines humanized her, and in fact were the reason why I started shipping them in the first place.

Now anyone who sees their supports will only see a gold digger who managed to net herself the best possible husband.

EDIT: I forgot to mention this because I was too tired when I made this post, but I generally don’t care much about the complaints from the Torrential Downpour crowd. In my opinion, a lot of it was plain old nitpicking. Charlotte/Xander’s S Support being changed wasn’t though.

anonymous asked:

Do you have any Silas/Panto headcanons? :0

Gosh, it means a lot that you would come to me about this? But yes, I do! It got really long so I put in under a cut.

  • They were quietly infatuated for a while before they got together
    • I mean, their families have the whole rivalry, which meant there had to be some sort of “diplomatic” meetings/pissing contests, right? Each family shows up, decked out in their finest, and little Panto peeks out from behind his sister and spots little Silas getting distracted by a butterfly off to the side of everything.
    • They want to be friends and maybe get to play together for a bit, but their families aren’t huge fans (honestly I can imagine the next battle starting over something like one of them not wanting to share a toy lol like neither seem the one to act like that but a lot of people are terrified that’s what’s going to happen)
    • But then there’s no civil contact for a while and the next time they see each other, they’re more grown up and they’ve changed and what was a cute little childhood crush has become something more piercing.
    • Like, a lot. Panto probably trips over his own shoes the first time he sees Silas again, and Silas had been having a terrible time these  last few days (Farson’s only young but their mother is already comparing them, already using him as a measuring rod with which to add up all of Silas’ inadequacies) but it makes him smile, then laugh just a little, and that’s the feeling he remembers for the rest of his life

**good vibes!** My uncle was talking about me to my mother's side of the family. They're crappy and I don't speak to them/care about coming out to them, so to avoid tension he used my birth name and old pronouns (with permission) but my 6 yr old cousin was there and she said 'He doesn't like to be called that!' It must've caused tension but I cried from happiness when my Dad told me about it.

💝Ryers: Richie is Mike's twin but he had to(or wanted to)move away to live with a relative for a couple years. When he gets back to Hawkins he doesnt have any friends. He never used to hang out with Mike and the rest of the party cause him and Mike fight. None of his old friends really remember him or care; Richie is sad but Will and him start hanging out and become not-so-secret boyfriends and they're always together (The party is confused but they don't really mind. Mike is a little salty)💝

Damn, anon, that’s one detailed ask. I hope you realize I come up with weird ass replies to prompts, so here’s my take on your cleverly crafted ask. Much love, anon :)

________________________________________________________

Under a normal circumstance, a person looking at a mirror receives the same feedback that person projects. If you look like shit, your mirror isn’t gonna lie to you. You trying to fake a smile? Your eyes will betray you faster than you can deny it.

Under a normal circumstance, your mirror shouldn’t do things outside your cue. Shouldn’t scream at your face with words so sharp, they could cut through steel. Shouldn’t punch you in the face so hard your nose starts to bleed. Shouldn’t splash you with a cup of tea so hot that it sinks through your clothing and burns your skin.

And as much as things were done and said in the pointless heat of the moment, things were done and said with sober thoughts behind them.

So, no, your mirror shouldn’t stare at you in the face with horror and apologies in his eyes when all you want to do is scream and curse and cry.

But sometimes mirrors do that – under abnormal circumstances. An occasion such as having an identical twin, a perfect replica, who hates your honest guts.

And sometimes all you can do is to get yourself out of that kind of environment, you know? Get some fresh air. Meet some new people. Find you a place where you can be yourself and not have to face the consequences of being compared to your well-loved mirror who’s a natural born leader when your ass is nothing more than an innate troublemaker.

Sometimes you just have to find you a group of friends you can call yours, not the hand-me-down kids your parents force you to hang out with because your awesome mirror picks the good kinds of crowd.

And before you know it, sometimes turn into months which turn into years, long enough to teach you the hard way that the place you’ve been looking for is a someone all along.

Someone you can call home. Someone who reminds you that what people say don’t matter half as much as you. Someone who turns your scars into landmarks of how you two came to be.

Someone who reminds you that the day you got your toys stolen was the day you two shared a piece of strawberry popsicle under the shooting stars. That the day you overheard your mirror’s friends diss you behind your back was the day you two spent a night in a secluded castle in the middle of the woods.

That the day you got burned on your chest was the day you two shared your first kiss as he patched you up and sent you off with a smile while you promise to return when you’ve found that place.

So, maybe you’ve gone a little twisted when your insides churn and your heart pounds when you see your mirror carry the expression you’ve been carrying all this time when he sees you holding your precious place in your arms with the promise of never letting go no matter what.
