Kamp Krusty [S4 E1] (dir. Mark Kirkland)

Well this is straight up sadistic, sickening, child abuse of the highest order and therefore only the Simpsons could make it funny. This is one of a few times the show takes a view on childhood obesity, which is a serious problem, this approach is the opposite end of the scale to the pee-wee sport solutions we see later on however.

You know what would make me a truly happy man? If people on Tumblr would take a more nuanced view of medieval Europe. I understand that people are trying to give non-European civilisations at the time a bit more credit, which is absolutely a good thing, but you can praise the scientific achievements of the Islamic Golden Age or the sophisticated agricultural innovations of the Aztecs without calling medieval Europe an intellectual wasteland of nothing but misogyny and bubonic plague, because it simply isn’t true. On the other hand, it also doesn’t do to romanticise the middle ages, but I don’t see that attitude here so frequently.

Incredible Lakes in Banff National Park

My first stop in Banff National Park as I entered from the West was in the small resort area of Lake Louise. I took a free shuttle up to Lake Louise where I hiked a few miles up to Lake Agnes and around the “Beehives”. The weather was cloudy, sunny, rainy and snowy all in the same afternoon, but the scenery surrounding the snowy peaks and turquoise waters was gorgeous. My favorite, however, was a spot that I had seen and heard about years ago: Lake Moraine. This spot has to be in my top 3 favorite destinations so far on my 8+ months on the road. It was easy to spend hours just taking in the surreal view, but as the sun began to dip behind the mountains I had to make my way down and North on the Icefields Parkway to find a camp site for the night.

The houses as.... Writers

Gryffindor: 

  • the hemingway’s of the world
  • their writing is full of angst and personal experience
  • can often come across as anecdotic- they take what has happened to them and apply it to a broader spectrum
  • there is an underlying current of passion in everything they write
  • many late nights w/ coffee because they were suddenly inspired at 2am while nearly dreaming

Ravenclaw: 

  • the fantasy writers
  • create whole worlds bc they aren’t satisfied with the one’s they are in
  • stories often make a statement on real world issues in a creative way
  • prefers to use a typewriter/hand-write their stories
  • shares their ideas with very few
  • almost never finishes a story bc they have so many half-finished ideas swirling in their heads

Slytherin: 

  • the realistic writers
  • creates painfully authentic, multi-faceted characters with abundant flaws
  • their writings aren’t meant to teach a lesson; simply to share a story
  • draw inspiration from those around them; MAJOR people watchers
  • their writing is highly sophisticated and not easy to digest; you have to pay attention to every detail
  • prefer writing in the 3rd person; like to take an omnipotent view as a way of removing themselves from the piece
  • take great pride in their work and don’t reveal it until it’s at a standard that they approve of (and that bar is HIGH) 

Hufflepuff: 

  • the poets
  • a lot of YA authors are hufflepuff
  • create beautiful imagery in everything they write
  • their attention to detail is impeccable; they want to ensure that what they imagine is what the audience also envisions
  • their writing is raw with emotion and makes the reader feel for the characters
  • 1st person stories
  • very open/receptive to criticism; seeks out ways to improve upon their creation
  • their stories always have a moral that they want the world to know
  • everything they write is a piece of them
