really good boots

okay one last thing about bootlegs before i’m off for the night

hamilton could literally give out professional recordings for free tomorrow, and it would not put a dent in any of it’s profits. there’s literally another album for it coming out on friday, it’s made three million dollars, it’s double platinum, people up charge tickets in resale to like 400 bucks and people still buy em, the lotto, merch, hamilton chicago/atlanta/los angeles/wherever else it’s gonna be next year. 

this isn’t some small show like tuck everlasting and american psycho was. it’s not gonna close anytime soon like fun home. it’s not being overshadowed by any other show like waitress and school of rock. and it sure as hell isn’t gonna lose any money if they put out a professional recording, free or not. 

so bottom line: if you’re one of those people that’s still bashing fans that watch bootlegs, not just of hamilton, but of any musical, you’re elitist/classist/and probably racist (cause yes, these things do go hand in hand believe it or not), and really just need to shut the fuck up cause the hamilton bootleg isn’t hurting a god damn soul.

“THERE IS NO REASON WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE SO MANY PRODUCTS ON YOUR SINK”

First of all, hahaha anon you’re so stupid

The transition from that shit show to the current orderly state of affairs took about a year. And I do mean in terms of both the accumulation of products as well as the clean up.

You know why?

EVERYTHING IS FUCKING EXPENSIVE AND I’M FROM SOUTHEAST ASIA WHICH MEANS MOST OF WHAT I OWN IS IMPORTED

And I definitely HAVE to spend money on higher quality stuff because I have a corporate job and I work in the CEO’s office. Whether I like it or not, I have to have Nice Things. Your $20 Kat Von D eyeliner costs me RM100, which is literally 100 bucks to me. And I have to systematically buy one product, try it out by using it up until it’s finished, and then I either stick with it or try something else. And when things are as expensive as they are, I CAN’T AFFORD TO THROW ANYTHING OUT AT ALL.

so, in order of numbers, here is what i own:

  1. Perfume (approximately all but two bottles were presents) and deodorant (anti-perspirant, because god hates the equator)
  2. Extra soap, bobby pins, nail clippers, tweezers, travel toiletries kit, etc.
  3. Medicine and things to make me Feel Better About Myself, approximately half were also given to me (my mum’s fancy mud facial mask, @cwena’s Body Shop Vitamin E Cream, some Kiehl’s sample bottles from my friend) and of course, lulur (balinese, rose scented, also gifts from my Indonesian relatives)
  4. Oral hygiene
  5. A Very Fancy hand mirror/brush/comb set I received as a present as a child
  6. Hair brush and two combs with differing widths between the teeth on account of my fucking hair
  7. HAIR STUFF BECAUSE I HAVE SO MUCH HAIR I HAVE 3 BOTTLES OF HAIR OIL THAT EACH DO DIFFERENT THINGS 
  8. 90% of all my make up, mostly lipsticks because I like lipsticks
  9. Daily face routine stuff

Arguably, all of these are things that I need. And they’re all on my sink because the only other table I own is my work desk, and I use that for work

When he was a little boy, Sam Vimes had thought that the very rich ate off gold plates and lived in marble houses.
  
He’d learned something new: the very very rich could afford to be poor. Sybil Ramkin lived in the kind of poverty that was only available to the very rich, a poverty approached from the other side. Women who were merely well-off saved up and bought dresses made of silk edged with lace and pearls, but Lady Ramkin was so rich she could afford to stomp around the place in rubber boots and a tweed skirt that had belonged to her mother. She was so rich she could afford to live on biscuits and cheese sandwiches. She was so rich she lived in three rooms in a thirty-four-roomed mansion; the rest of them were full of very expensive and very old furniture, covered in dust sheets.
  
The reason that the rich were so rich, Vimes reasoned, was because they managed to spend less money.
    
Take boots, for example. He earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles.
   
But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that’d still be keeping his feet dry in ten years’ time, while a poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet.
   
This was the Captain Samuel Vimes “Boots” theory of socioeconomic unfairness.

Hi! I was wondering if you had a master list of the 100 fics you've read or that you've written? (Particularily about the 100 finale because the bellarke scenes in the finale have me ssssSSSShhhhHHHHooooOOOOkkkkkKKKKKeeeeEEEE)

hello! i confess i’ve only read two fics about the finale so far, this future one by @ponyregrets (where bellamy meets madi) and this one by @wellsjahasghost (set the night before the death wave). both are fantastic, as Chash and Jade’s fics always are, so i’d highly recommend checking them out if you haven’t yet!

as for my own fics, ’after the bombs’ is the only one i’ve written about the finale so far. if you’re looking for ALL my t100 fic, it’s probably easier to check out my ao3 page! (be prepared for a LOT of modern au and a LOT of snarky-sweet fluff)

NWS cast??
A Million Miles From Heaven

does anyone know where this bizarrely good quality recording comes from? it’s the first song of the musicalso it replaces epiphany and is not on the pop opera recording, and i swear that’s barrett’s voice. i found it floating around youtube with no description. is it audio from a proshot video? from just a really good boot? the secret beginnings of a cast recording that got scrapped? send help

Finished up some @asagaoacademy mini Normal Boots and Hidden Block Letterman Jackets. The NB and HB guys are actually really cool and very nice people so I’m glad the game has given them a little more attention. It was fun to be able to dust off the old sewing machine and make something crafty too ^-^

i had to google what intercrural sex was so i hope this is right lmao (i decided to set this kind of during episode 22 in the abandoned building)

“Mika, wait…” Yuuichirou grabbed Mikaela’s cape as he turned.

“Yuu? What is it? What’s wrong?” He turned back to see what Yuuichirou wanted, suddenly worrying and grabbing his shoulders. “What’s wrong? Did I hurt you? I’m so sorry. Are you okay?”

Yuuichirou blinked dumbly a few times before smiling and leaning forward, closing his eyes and pressing his lips to Mikaela’s. The vampire’s eyes widened though he didn’t pull back, but he didn’t kiss Yuu back either.

When Yes was working on our second or third album, probably around 1970, Freddie used to work in the Kingston Market in the boot store as a shop assistant. Bill Bruford and I used to go there and buy boots from this store, which made really good rock ‘n’ roll boots at that time. I always remember Freddie bending down on the floor when I was trying on these boots and feeling my toes and how my foot fit in there, and he would say, 'Me and a bunch of guys I know, we’re rehearsing. We want to be in a band and do well.’ Of course, I was a little patronizing and was like, 'Well, good luck with that,’ never thinking the boot salesman would actually become Freddie Mercury.
