i don't care if they're old

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?!?

so i drew my own puffles today

i miss them

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

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.

HAVE I MENTIONED HOW MUCH I LOVE THESE TWO

hgnn

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.

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."

anonymous asked:

so my mom just told me (semipanromantic asexual) that I better not marry a girl or she'll disown me (I haven't come out to her yet, she's fucking terrifying) but I'm really in love with my girlfriend and I don't know what to do. No one in my family likes or care about me but still they're family and I well.... I just want them to accept me for once.

“No one in my family likes or care about me”

“No one in my family likes or care about me”

“No one in my family likes or care about me”

Don´t try and get approval or appreciation from people that are toxic and abusive probably as well as neglective because you´ll just be disappointed and feel bad for yourself if you do. How old are you? Sometimes cutting ties is hard, especially family, I understand that, but once you´re of age, have a job and a place to live, cut the ties. You´ll find a better family, friends can be a better fucking family than your “real” family since they fucking actually care about you. Even if they´re family it doesn´t change that they´re toxic people.

Don´t try and get their approval and acceptance because how they sound like you´d more likely get disowned right away than accepted. If you can, try and get out of there. I wouldn´t come out to them tho since disowning you could mean you ending up homeless. Please stay safe and be strong.

ooc: I literally can’t deal with rabid, misogynistic, obsessed Stucky shippers anymore. Mainly the ones who ship Destiel/Johnlock also. They are a type of person who just do not like women coming between their gay ship. It’s extra pathetic because it’s a white male ship!! If you want a gay ship so bad, put Steve with Sam and throw some diversity in there. UGH. I don’t think I’ll do replies because I’m so shaken. I’m not a confrontational person, I try not to be. 

anonymous asked:

Ya i have a question uhhhhhhh what the fuck Even if you don't like trans people, if they're passing they're affected by sexism

God it’s like you people don’t even try to read our blogs or understand anything before giving us dumb anon questions. 

I didn’t say I don’t like trans people, or that none of them experience sexism. Trans women are not affected by sexism because they are male, the historically, politically, socially, and economically more privileged class. Trans men are affected because they are female. Even if either pass. 

I don’t care how good a trans womans makeup and hair and implants and tucking are, they are still not having their uterus legislated by old white men, they still aren’t the main targets of rape, sex trafficking, female genital mutilation, female infanticide. They still didn’t grow up terrified of their periods/scared of being humiliated by getting them in the middle of grade school. Or having sex because they feel like their vagina will be ripped open and it will be painful. They didn’t get socialized as a girl, they didn’t get pink pepper spray for Christmas or get hit on by old men as 11 year old girls and get told that their purpose in life is to give their fathers grandchildren and to get married and take her husbands name. 

Women aren’t oppressed because we’re ‘feminine’ or whatever, we’re oppressed because we’re female.

Oh! I ship Baloo and Bagheera too! And a lot of my friends who went and saw the new one said they shipped them too. So don't worry friend you're not alone out there, I love their relationship in the animated classic and the new one. They're precious ^^

I’m so happy that I’m not the only one that thinks these two old losers are cute! I love how much they both care about Mowgli and work together to make sure that their baby is safe and sound!
