the signs as abandoned places

ARIES Abandoned gas stations, beholders of tumbleweeds and roadside tales, filled with dead fuel yet frozen in time, eyes on the passengers with their hands and hair out the window, haunted by old desert songs and engines revving behind it.

TAURUS: Abandoned bars, stools turned over, a ripped flyer shouting BABES BABES BABES hanging off the bulletin board, a lost motorcycle tire, glass shattered, and the spirit of hell still living somewhere inside.

GEMINI Ghost towns, at the base of old mountains, houses with shutters like eyes and doors like mouths, swallowing stories whole, convenience stores still stocked with stale bread, cabins and headstones still peeking out from behind fairy wood brambles, nature stretching into steel, ready to come alive with a shift of the wind.

CANCER: Abandoned motels, empty pools filled with deflated flamingos, the sign out front screaming VACANCY forever, each room a different anthology of guest book tales, smashed television monitors and a love note ( or goodbye note ) caught up in the rust of the honeymoon suite.

LEO: Abandoned theaters, stages dented with the ghosts of performances past, torn scripts scattered across floorboards in a mess of Playbills and shattered eyeglasses, broken lights and tattered dress hems, mannequins poised at an eternal act one.

VIRGO Abandoned train stations, cars sprayed in a kaleidoscope of graffiti, drifters still starting fires in some of the shells, grass growing over old gears, ghost conductors with no destination, rails intersecting at odd angles like flowers and bones.

LIBRA Abandoned campgrounds, rattlesnakes and desert blues, dead hot and forgotten, a shelled-out RV and the dry lake where the kids used to play, swallowing up broken toys and flat tents, showers crawling with critters, vintage t-shirts printed with campground bears promising that it’s still “the happiest place on earth.”

SCORPIO Abandoned amusement parks, soggy coaster cars paused mid-ascension, cheap thrills and screams still stagnant in the air, ferris wheels trembling in the wind, clown faces distorted and torn down the middle, a mascot head smiling out from the overgrowth.

SAGITTARIUS Abandoned renaissance fairs, an acre out of time, fake pirate ships swinging, fairy wings trying to fly, dead flower crowns tangled with bright ribbons and peasant blouses shed by the lake, empty squares and old stage buildings, Arthur’s sword caught at the entry, still waiting to be pulled.

CAPRICORN Abandoned toy stores, broken pinball machines, ghost clowns, and popped balloons, playing cards stuck to the floor, a crooked house of childhood horrors, teddy bears bleeding stuffing, and a funhouse mirror distorting the distorted. 

AQUARIUS: Abandoned piers, driftwood split down the middle, coastline the last alive thing, neon lights still calling Gatsby home from the horizon, but promising only the ghosts of mermaids washed ashore, tires and bottles filled with sand, dead trees spouting from old rocks, branches a wind chime of ripped dresses, forks, and seashells on strings.

PISCES: Abandoned waterparks, slides overlooking entire old cities, perfect for climbing, hoses and pools now scrawled over and used as skateboard ramps, kids climbing over the old towers and ladders in their bathing suits when it rains, pure want as their tickets in, yelling, “We’re still here, we’re still here, we’re still here!”

Tom Hiddleston: Total Filmography – EVERY role he’s ever had.

Reasons You Should Watch the Disney Fairies Movies
  • Talented Cast
  • Feel-good messages
  • Racially diverse characters
  • Strong female leads each with their own personality and character. They’re not just all copies of each other!
  • The animals are adorable
  • The Neverbeast made me cry, and the ending wasn’t a “everyone is happy” ending. It was real, and I think that’s so important for kids to learn
  • The whole feel of the movies are magical. It reminds you of when you were a child
  • ‘The Pirate Fairy’ has Tom Hiddleston singing in it
  • Pixie Hollow is beautiful (the Winter area is my favourite)
  • Gives more insight into Tinkerbell

Seriously, they’re not just “kids movies”. They’re actually incredible, and they’re some of my favourite movies. They deserve more recognition than they get.

Shutocon 2017 - Photo Set 2

Not all from the same day. I went back for a second day, Sunday, and decided to reuse my Vanellope Von Schweetz cosplay from Youmacon. It was already in my closet, so why not? ^^ Spent time with some internet friends, played some DDR and Guitar Hero. Bought pins. So many pins… XD

Favourite photo of the weekend? Wilfred Warfstache and Deadpool, Titanic-Style. Lovely.

There’s cute and there’s Cute and then there’s CUTE…and then there’s this, which broke the Cute Meter. Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting.

ponytail Freed + tank top Freed = yummy

Also, THANK YOU FOR ALL THE BIRTHDAY WISHES! May the Fourth be with you!!!

I just saw Tinkerbell and the Pirate Fairy, and while I liked it, I can’t help but think there is something weird about this movie. And I think that weird thing is Zarina. I don’t get why we were supposed to care about a fairy we never saw before running away and betraying her ‘friends’ I don’t even think they were friends. I would have cared if it was Iridesa, Clank or Vidia. However, since this movie was about the Dust Keepers, is was like it was meant to be about Terrence, but something happened.
