awww I received two postcards from lovely tumblr friends!!!
@sarah-francesca omg :D when I opened this I thought… wellllll… THAT’s different and then I read it and I had to giggle so hard. You are right. A semi-nude cupid peeking at another semi-nude cupid is spot on for this blogowner
thank you so much :D this was a lovely surprise!
And @pollysthings a vintage postcard from your home <3 as you can see I have already employed it as a book sign. Oh god those poor women in warm climates, with all the layers and corsets and everything. I will never understand how they survived this. Well. This and childbirth. *shudders* but I have to admit they look awesome :D thank you so much xxx
*music anon* I'll Be There by Hollywood Undead for Heart and Soul :)
OH wow, that’s amazing… YES!! thank you for the song rec.. i love it so much.. T_T
“ Can you see me, my love? Up there above? When you were dying, I was dying too. Look for meaning in song, but the meaning was gone cause I was crying right along with you. If the heavens may break, I hope for our sake that if they ever do, I’ll Be There with you.”
Hi darling, I was just scrolling through your prompt list and I never fully realised how many you have! Like seriously there are so many there! I was going to leave a little prompt but thinking about it now it's pretty shit so I am just going to say that I love and appreciate you and I look forward to whatever prompt you decide to use next xoxox
No words can express what I want to say. SO GIFS!!! GIFs fit better!! :D
i’ve spent the past 24 hours firstly in denial, then sobbing uncontrollably with my hands shaking and when i was eventually out of shock, drawing and listening to Bowie until i fell asleep (a common way i calm myself down, something else i have to thank Bowie for)
and now, after all of that exhausting grieving, i’ve come to realise that Bowie of course didn’t want to die yet but he certainly didn’t want all of us to be feeling so sad. my mum & my aunty keep reminding me that Bowie had an amazing life, and it’s true, he did. he achieved everything he wanted in his lifetime; he became a famous, worldwide cultural icon, he changed his society and every society after, he found true love and had a beautiful family, he acted and directed and wrote and painted and of course sung and composed and they were all things he valued, everything he wanted out of his life he worked his way towards.
so really, our mourning should now be redirected into celebration. let’s celebrate the amazing life of David Jones, let’s remember old songs and videos as well as enjoy everthing he recently gave to us, and appreciate everything he’s done for this world. Bowie would’ve wanted it that way.
remember when he was just a teenager and he was on tv to stop people abusing men with long hair?
remember when he wore a dress and the whole of england lost their shit?
remember when he bit ronson’s guitar strings for the first time and something so taboo suddenly became so accepted?
remember when he helped other musicians reach their full potential and go on to lead a successful career? (blondie, lou reed, and even lorde to name a few)
remember when he told everyone that we can be heroes just for one day?
remember when he came to australia and ultimately began our decline in racism towards aboriginals with one music video?
remember all of these times please, remember all the wonderful things about David and celebrate them all. everyone; turn up your speakers/record players/cd players/tv’s/phones; wherever your Bowie is, turn him up and let’s dance! let’s show Bowie how thankful we all are that he cared enough to pay Earth a visit 💛
Interviewer: Joining us right now, and I couldn’t be more excited, is Zayn Malik. Good morning to you Zayn!
Zayn: Woot woot! Morning!
I: [laughing] Woot woot! Listen, let’s cut to the chase. Pillowtalk is one hell of a tune, you must be so proud of your work.
Z: Thank you very much. Yeah, I’m massive(?) excited. I’ve been working on it for just over a year, the whole record. And yeah, it’s turned out well. I’m really excited and obviously just a little bit nervous to see what the reaction is gonna be, but mainly excited. So I can’t wait to get it out and see what people have to say about it.
Zayn, listen, there was a statement about a year ago, and it was kind of a bold one coming from a man of your celebrity status and caliber, which is you were planning on living the life of a normal 22-year-old. I was just wondering, from a personal point of view, how you thought that went as an adventure?
Your fault Apollo, your punishment. My father’s voice still rings in my ears.Can you believe Zeus blamed me for the god’s battle with gaea? Just because the earth goddess duped one of my grandchildren- Octavian- into plunging the Greek and Roman demigods into a civil war that nearly destroyed human civilization. I ask you, how was that my fault? Now I’m cast out of Olympus in the form of a sixteen year old boy, name and all! Sadly I’ve been grounded this way before. I know I will face many troubles and hardships. I can only hope that if I muster through them and prove myself somehow, Father will forgive me and allow to become a god again. But this time my situation seems slightly more dangerous. One of my ancient adversaries knows I am here and is having me followed. The Oracle of Delphi remains dark, unable to input prophecies. Most embarrassing of all, I am bound to serve a demigod street urchin who defends herself by threatening curious tourists. Zeus could not possibly expect me to find the Oracle prophecies by myself. Not in my present weak condition. It’s time for me to drop in on Camp Half-blood, where I might find some talented toddlers ….er, I mean heroes to help. They will welcome me as a celebrity. They will bring me lovely offerings, like peeled grapes, cheese and- uh gods- perhaps even livestock! Mmmm, Yes. If I survive this, I really want to write an ode to the power of heaven…
Yasssss!!!!!!! If anyone has any suggestions on how it would sound better send me a message. And a big thank you to everyone who helped, I’m send you all a personal thank you message to thank you later!
