stop calling on me

What's the moustache enthusiast thing all about? What does a moustache enthusiast do? Is it just a sexual fetish or do you do something else? Is it all moustaches or just certain types of moustaches? Or just certain guys' moustaches? Or just Conrad Veidt's moustache? (I can somehow never recognize him when you post pictures of him with a moustache.) So many questions but I am dying to know. -A secret admirer, thinking of growing a moustache, but needing to know what kind gets the ladies going.

My goodness, that’s a lot of questions about moustaches… It’s not a sexual fetish for me at all, actually, and I by no means find moustaches attractive on just anyone and everyone. For some reason some people can just pull them off, others look weird without them, and then there are some who just make them sexy, somehow, no matter what. Oh, and of course, we mustn’t forget that there are those who use them for comedic effect *tips bowler hat and twirls cane* 

For instance, people like Clark Gable, Basil Rathbone and Anton Walbrook *owned* the moustache look so completely that it almost feels weird to see them without one, right? They just look less of themselves because the moustache gives them a little extra something without which they’d be slightly less memorable, slightly less watchable, slightly less *them*. Charlie Chaplin - and thus laughter - became synonymous with his little toothbrush one. And then you have Conrad Veidt, who on the whole I prefer without one, but then there are certain characters of his that just wouldn’t be the same without a wicked brush of hair luxuriating upon the upper lip. Never big n’ bushy or anything like that. Just something to frame the face, accentuate the features and add a little menace. I think that’s what I like the most - the neatly trimmed, close the the skin, dark and mysterious line that draws attention to the mouth. And if you have a bestial mouth, as Conrad Veidt most insatiably did, then it makes for quite the hypnotically alluring and perversely irresistible thing.

I guess essentially what a moustache does is to… accentuate its owner’s character. So with Charlie it becomes a point of comedy, with Clark or Baz or Anton it becomes a little extra confidence, and with Connie it becomes a goddam pussy trap. (I’d apologise for the crudeness, but if you follow my blog you’re most likely well accustomed to it by now.)

So yeah, went on a bit of a ramble there didn’t I, but I hope I’ve answered your question(s) at least a little. Good luck with growing your own, if you indeed decide to do so.

I leave you with my two favourite moustaches - Torsten (A Woman’s Face, 1941) and Jaffar (The Thief of Bagdad, 1940)

L: Yo, Emma, you have some good stuff here!

E: *proudly* I know right. Family business.

L: I like the sound of that. Can I get some…apples?

E: *blushes*

L: Hey, no worries, kid. I won’t tell anyone. I get that you’re hungry, it’s lunch time after all. How about you ditch that stand and come grab some food with me?

E: Only if you stop calling me kid. I’m 17!

L: Alright, deal.

I would recommend looking at Q2 of our FAQ, as your question is answered there.

anonymous asked:

Mr. Gadfly, I just want to say I really love your work. I write poetry too but I don't think it's any good and I'm scared to show it to anyone. Do you have any advice so I can get better? I really want to get published someday...

Man, y’all gotta stop calling me “Mr. Gadfly.”

The first time you show your poetry to someone is one of those “pull the bandaid off” moments. You just have to do it.

And truth is, when you do, you’re probably going to get one of two responses. They’ll give you a noncommital response because they don’t really care, or they’ll gush praise on you that seems overdone and insincere.

Don’t let either of these responses ruin you. Every writer gets them. After you get them and you get over the jitters of showing your work to people, you go back to your grindstone and you write something new, something better. And you show them that too.

You keep doing this until the ones who don’t care start to take notice of you; you keep doing this until the ones who gush overwrought, insincere praise start quieting down and REALLY reading what you have to say.

But really, I’m getting ahead of myself. If you really think your work isn’t any good, then make it better. Study the writers you admire and discover why you love their work. Study writers you hate and discover why you hate them. Write more poetry, read more poetry, and repeat until you go from thinking “my poetry isn’t any good” to “my poetry is alright” to “my poetry is pretty decent” to “fuck you, my poetry is awesome.”

Hey there! Please could you give me some prompts for a magician + assistant AU?

Hi, we actually answered something much like this here! In case that’s not enough, here are some more prompts:

- “Hey kid, come over here, I’m going to cut you in half.”
“Stop calling me a kid, I’m… wait, you’re going to do what now?”

- “Well if I’m going to be helping you out, you really should tell me how you do some of this stuff.”
“And give away my aura of mystery? Never.”

i guess the reason i don’t like that “Ew The Straights” line of commentary/jokes is that a lot of the gross shit people say is stuff The Straights Do is just crappy shit that lots of people do

stop pretending us lgbt folks are immune to nasty behavior because i mean maybe some of you have never actually met any other lgbt people in real life or been involved with Real Life Gay Culture but i can think of plenty of occasions when other lgbt people I know or am acquainted with have done shitty things

i’ve been belligerently, repeatedly misgendered by a lesbian bartender at a gay bar on purpose, even after i outright said “stop calling me miss and ma’am, I’m a transgender man. I tried to be polite about this all night but you don’t seem to be taking the hints and the least you could do is gender me correctly where i supposedly belong.” i’ve been told numerous insulting things by gay men that i don’t even want to go into. i’ve watched lgbt friends of all kinds cheat on each other, abuse each other, lie to each other, be catty and vapid and shallow to each other. I’ve watched lgbt people obsessively categorize other lgbt people by body type and appearance even when asked not to do it. i’ve heard lgbt people say terrible things about each other, each other’s identities over and over. 

shittiness is rife in our community too. casual racism, body shaming, misogyny… sorry. i just look very sideways at that kind of “Move, I’m Gay!!!!” attitude.  

“sorry i’m thinking about cats again”
