There are many Beths in the world, shy and quiet, sitting in corners till needed, and living for others so cheerfully that no one sees the sacrifices till the little cricket on the hearth stops chirping, and the sweet, sunshiny presence vanishes, leaving silence and shadow behind.

March 20th to April 19th is the season of Aries, the zodiac sign of Mohammed Avdol, and to celebrate his birthmonth @avpol-week is hosting Avdol Appreciation Month!

To participate in the event you should upload your work with the tag #avdolmonth within the first five tags of your post. Any form of creativity is welcome, be it a just a sketch or a complete artwork, a headcanon, a drabble or a whole fanfic, a music video, an edit or a gifset, it’s all up to you. If you can’t actively take part in the event you can still help by supporting the creators and liking/reblogging their works.

Before uploading your works please make sure you check the rules!

today is patrick mcgoohan’s birthday.  

this means that it’s a swell day.

for well over a decade now i have been yammering about him here, there, and everywhere.  he resonates with me so strongly because he’s a person who always did what he thought was right, no matter what anyone else told him.  he could be difficult and hard to get along with, but i have a suspicion that was reserved for people he thought were fools anyhow.  he loved his family to pieces, he adored his wife, he lived humbly and quietly and never once behaved as though he were anything special.  

he had an idea about what it means to be an individual, and that idea has stuck with some of us for a long time, and we see glimpses of that individuality in everything he did, whether on screen or off.  in short, he was a really, really cool guy.

of all the stars that shine in the sky (cue adela rogers st. johns circa 1930 writing for photoplay magazine) he always shines the brightest for me.

happy birthday, paddy.

Édouard Manet, A Bar at the Folies-Bergère, 1881-82, oil on canvas, 96 x 130 cm, The Courtauld Gallery, London. Source

Édouard Manet’s depiction of the Folies-Bergère music hall in Paris is an iconic piece of French Realist painting. As with in a number of the masterpieces looked at this month, the mirror behind the barmaid plays a central role in the analysis of the composition. Scholars are yet to agree on whether the gentlemen reflected on the far right stands in the place of the viewer, or just to the left, seeing as the barmaid’s mirror image seems strangely out of place.
