'The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’ to Be Enshrined in Harvard University’s Library
Producer 9th Wonder
has been tapped to curate Harvard University’s We Are the Breaks
project, which will archive 200 hip-hop albums that are a “standard of
the culture” to their esteemed library.
The first four albums that 9th picked to be enshrined in the library are A Tribe Called Quest’s Low End Theory, Nas’ Illmatic, Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly and Lauryn Hill’s The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. Each album will be archived with liner notes and the vinyl that was used in the original production.
Wonder went on his Instagram account to formally announce his four
distinguished honorees to start with for the Harvard Library. He wrote:
I haven’t seen many people do this recently, but my dash is completely dead at the moment. I would prefer it if people in Australia or nearby reblogged this, but anyone is free to reblog. It’s just that my dash always gets dead after a certain time because everyone in America goes to bed, haha.
I’ll leave this under the cut, cause it’s kinda long. Reblog/like if you post:
A commission I asked the awesome @wet-monsoon to draw that contain some of my ships. The Dipcifica drawing of Pink Dipper is based off of an AU that @minijenn made of her Gravity Falls/Steven Universe crossover “Universs Falls” in which Dipper and Mabel dies and Steven bring them back to life. While Starco is my OTP, the Marco and Janna kiss takes place in an Au in which Janna is a teenage witch.
Do you remember who I am?
That’s a shame.
We have met many times. And each time, I talk with you about the same thing.
There is a staff member that is a silent ally to the students of Elsewhere University.
There is a staff member who, once they learn of the staff member’s existence, is feared by the staff and professors before promptly being forgotten.
There is a staff member who is, above all else, coveted by the Gentry of Elsewhere University.
The official title is Administrator of University Affairs and Services. The official duties include maintaining the registrar of students and employment records of the staff, outreach to the local community, and coordinating campus events. The official job description has many flowery words about “record maintenance” and “interdepartmental coordination between Admissions and Human Resources.”
The official job description says nothing of the runes carved into flesh with an iron knife and bandaged with a poultice of salt and crushed blooms of Solomon’s Seal for the protection of the body.
The official job description says nothing of the blood pact sealed with the Librarians for protection of the mind.
Because they are the Keeper of Names. And the official job description says nothing of how it means sacrificing your own Name, for the protection of the soul. For the protection of all.
The position itself used to be two separate roles - Academic Affairs and University Services, before being combined after a particularly clever Noble learned the Name of the Director of University Services and used it to leverage the Name of the Director of Academic Affairs and Admissions. The Noble used this knowledge to steal the names of several students and staff members, sparking a Quest for their return. Following the conclusion of the Quest, the University Administration felt it prudent to take measures to ensure this wielding of Names against staff could never happen again.
How do I know all this about the Keeper?
A better question:
Do you remember who I am?
That’s a shame.
Ready for Some Real-Life Dragon Questing? Dragon Quest: The Real Opens for a Limited Time at Universal Studios Japan in 2017!
Have you ever wished that you could set out on a real-life adventure to battle monsters like the ones in Dragon Quest? Since the release of the first game in the series in 1986, Square Enix’s Dragon Quest has remained intensely popular, selling over 66 million copies. “Dragon Quest: The Real” at Universal Studios Japan is a real battle attraction that gives participants the chance to experience battling with monsters for real, recreating the world of this nationally (and internationally!) beloved game to stunning perfection on an overwhelming scale. This attraction is open for a limited time only from Friday, March 17, 2017, so if you’ll be in Japan make sure you pay a visit to Universal Studios Japan!
“Dragon Quest: The Real” is the result of Universal Studios Japan’s expertise in creating content that brings the world of popular franchises to life. This amazing technological strength and creativity has seen the production of attractions like “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter”, and the world of Dragon Quest is the latest to get the Universal Studios Japan treatment. Dragon Quest fans are sure to be blown away by the opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of this incredibly popular game series and set off on a real-life adventure!
Intense Real-Life Battles with Wave Upon Wave of Monsters - Arm Yourself With Real Weapons and Wield Them Against Monsters! This Is a Once-In-A-Lifetime Opportunity to Become a Hero for Real!
Participants get to experience the world of Dragon Quest for real as everyone gets their own weapon and works together with the rest of their party as they travel through amazingly realistic dungeons and fight the monsters that appear before them. Remember the locations in Dragon Quest that you always dreamed of wandering through in real life but could only experience virtually? Thanks to this attraction, you get to become the main character of the game and explore those scenes in real life! This experience is only available at Universal Studios Japan, thanks to the first ever Dragon Quest real battle attraction. Look out for more “Dragon Quest: The Real” info in the near future!
Comment from Ryutaro Ichimura, Supervising Producer of Square Enix’s Dragon Quest 30th Anniversary Project:
“The day when Dragon Quest fans can experience the world of Dragon Quest for real is getting closer and closer! We’ll continue to work together and put our heart and soul into bringing you the most incredible Dragon Quest experience ever as the grand finale to the Dragon Quest 30th Anniversary Project, and we hope you’re all as excited as we are!!”
Thanks to a lot of lovely people, Virtual College Visits can officially start!
What is this post?
This post is a way to connect students who are unable to visit a certain college with someone who has visited that college.
There are so many things about a college that can’t be learned by looking at their website, or comparing statistics. Yet, at the same time, it is impossible for most students to visit every college that they’re interested in. This is a tool that will hopefully help bridge that gap!
How do I use this?
Think of a school that you’re interested in that you probably won’t be able to visit. Then, scan this (alphabetical) list of schools to see if it’s listed. If it is, congrats! The url(s) listed next to it belong to a person/people who have visited that school. They have contacted me saying that they are willing to talk about their experience at that school with other potential students. Feel free to shoot them a message explaining that you saw their url on this post and want to learn about x school (You should probably specify what school because most of the contributors have visited more than one school).
This is cool! Can I contribute?
Absolutely! Send me (appblrgirl) a message with the schools you would be willing to talk about with others. I will continue to update this post periodically.
Unfortunately because of school and various life things, I won’t be making any more updates to this post for the foreseeable future.
The school I want to visit isn’t on this list!
That sucks. Keep checking back as the list gets updated, you never know when your potential school will show up!
You can also message me with additional questions if you have any.
A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed so far, and good luck to all of you!
P.S. To avoid a large number of schools in the ‘U’ section, any schools starting with ‘University of’ have been reformatted. e.g. Virginia, University of

I remember a while ago that somebody in the cucumber quest tag requested an aesthetic swap between Rosemaster and Rose Quartz from Steven Universe. I can’t for the life of me find that post anymore, but if that was you, feel free to let yourself be known! This was LOADS of fun.
Artist commentary: “A 3-foot box that travels through time, an intergalactic sextant, a quest to save the universe and no time for any of your complaining. Kreska, a crotchety old chronomancer from a friend’s D&D campaign.”
