14. And 30. What historical figure do you think would be most interested in dank memes

14. Why are you are interested in history?

oh man thats a heavy question. it’s just fascinating to me how the human race used to live and how we got to where we are today yk? like its so odd to think that the people alive in 70AD were just exactly what we are today ygm we put so much distance between ourselves because we’re totally different societies but at the end of the day they are just like us only with a different culture (often based on different levels of knowledge) and they aren’t separate from us because we Evolved from them. i really cant pinpoint exactly why i find history so interesting but i think its probably to do with humanity things like how people think the fact that medieval people used torture is barbaric but turn a blind eye to guantanamo bay

30. What historical figure do you think would be most interested in dank memes

i gotta say mozart. that guy wrote a canon called ‘lick me in the arse’ and a piece of music for an opera singer he didnt like that alternated between high and low notes because she dropped her chin on the low notes and threw her had back on the high ones so her head would ‘bob like a chicken’ onstage. that guy would love a good meme and meme culture and therefore its probably for the best he isnt alive today because the number of meme compositions would be the death of real music

I'd like to personally thank Bioware for creating Mordin's song about mitosis. My Anatomy & Physiology class might have laughed when I sang it but you can bet this girl didn't get a single mitosis question wrong. I owed it to Mordin.

Same anon with the Mordin mitosis song. Immediately after writing that I listened to his other Citadel DLC songs and found one about amino acids and seriously where was that two days ago before my BIochem final

Mordin would be proud of you :)

♫  You’re the very model of a scientist human!  ♫

10 biases list I was tagged by @def-initely-soul

So I’m finally doing this top 10 bias thing that I got tagged in and I want y’all to know I feel #stressed #exposed. I’ll tag @ichibabe21 @kpoppantydrop Kia and Rae @pocinamedia @melaninstoryteller @kpoppocmoodboards and @givemesomeseoul

1. Yoongi & Yongguk. If you thought you were going to get me to chose you’re wrong. Both rappers, songwriters, producers with gummy smiles that have been brave about their mental illnesses. What’s not to love?

There are lyrics from the Kip Moore song “Lead me” that just remind me of my writing, when Saeran starts to catch the feels <3 <3. Now the song is sang from a guy to a girl but you can easily change it to a girl from a guy. 

I know we’ve got our scars
We’re beautiful and broken, just the way we are
With a little faith and a whole lot of trust
I’d bet it all on you, bet it all on us

So lead me into your heart
Don’t let this world keep us apart
Don’t leave me alone in the dark
Lead me into your heart
Lead me into your heart

MB, hoping you can help a girl out. Half the blogs are saying they sang a Swifty song on Carpool Karaoke and half are saying that person lied on Twitter. I watched it this morning and there was no TS on what I watched. But did they include it somewhere and I'm simply missing it?

I haven’t seen it anywhere so either it was indeed a lie or it was cut. Either way, glad it’s not there.

Ice Cream

This takes place in the Medical Attention universe. Photo prompt originally submitted  to @castlefanficprompts in this post. Duel posted to FFnet here

“Ice cream?”

Kate looked down at the two year old, Charlotte Rodgers, as she tugged on her mother’s pant leg. Smiling at her daughter, she crouched down to kiss her forehead. Each day the little girl surprised her more and more with new words she had learned. Apparently today was the day to reveal another.

“What’s that, Baby?” she asked, brushing the child’s bangs out of her eyes with her free hand. Liam moved over to the pair, a knowing expression painted across his boyish features.

“I think she wants more ice cream,” he attempted a whisper as he spoke loudly into his mom’s ear. One thing Liam Rodgers could never be described as was quiet. She nodded and gave his hand a quick squeeze.

“I think so, too,” she said with a soft smile toward her son. “I was just surprised. I didn’t realize she knew that word.”

“Daddy taught her.” His voice was so matter-of-fact that she had to bite down on her lip to hold back her laugh. She loved her son so much.

“Of course he did .”

“He said he taught her all the important words,” he explained. Kate smiled and turned toward the sound of Rick approaching with the rest of the ice cream from their favorite little shop located down the street from the family loft. Alexis had discovered it on her way home from the library earlier in the summer and they’d made weekly trips ever since. Rick’s daughter couldn’t make today’s trip since she was busy with friends, but Liam had insisted on getting Lexis’s favorite flavor. His world revolved around his sisters. Obvious by the way he was currently dancing around the sidewalk with Charlie, their high pitched giggles ringing through the air.

“Important words?” Kate said, laughing, eye brow arched toward her husband.

“Yeah, you know. Like ice cream – how is ice cream not an important word?” Rick asked, feigning innocence. He pressed a quick kiss to her temple before handing Liam his ice cream cone.

She looked down at her daughter and shook her head. “Can’t say her name, but can say ice cream…” Kate teased, playfully swatting her husband’s behind and turning back to her melting dessert to give it a quick lick.

“C’s are hard letters…” he mumbled, nearly causing her to spit out the bite she had in her mouth.

“Rick? Cream? What does that start with?” she joked, looking back at him as the family walked toward the playground located across the street.

“Point taken.”

“Charlie, baby, can you say your name?” Kate asked, pulling the girl into her arms as they sat down on the swing together.

“Ice cream,” Charlie repeated, her tiny voice full of confidence.

“Maybe you should’ve named her ice cream?” Liam giggled, jumping up onto the swing situated between his parents.

“Buddy, you’re not helping,” her husband said, reaching over to ruffle the hair on top of their son’s head.

“Baby Girl, can you say your name for mommy?”

“Ice cream,” she sang.

“Maybe we can work on this again tomorrow? Her speech patterns are perfectly fine for her age…” he assured her.

“Don’t use your pediatrician speech on me,” she said, rolling her eyes when he stuck his tongue out at her. Sometimes she wondered how the man-child husband that she loved dearly could have ever been focused enough to last through medical school.

“She has a very expanded vocabulary. Relax, Kate, our little girl’s a genius,” Rick beamed.

“She just has you wrapped around her little finger.”

“But her little fingers are so cute,” he mused. He did have a point though. Her fingers and her toes and – they made a pretty cute kid.

“Ice cream.” A cute kid who had forgotten how to say anything else; maybe there was a reset button somewhere?

“Mommy?” Liam asked, his voice growing concerned.

“Yeah, Buddy?”

“I think she just wants some ice cream…”

Crap! In her concern about the words Charlie knew, she had failed to pay attention to the fact that her daughter was actually asking her for something.

Mother of the year.

“I’m sorry, Sweetheart. Here you go.”

She scooted off of the swing to adjust her daughter so they could share a couple tastes of the ice cream cone.

“Yum!” Charlie squealed, giggling as she helped Kate finish the rest of the cone. Out of the corner of her eye, she noticed her husband’s face stretch into a huge grin.


“You’re cute,” he stated, popping the rest of his dessert in his mouth.

“Who’s cute?” she asked, raising her eyebrow.

“Charlie!” Their daughter shrieked her name loud enough for it to echo through the park, leaving her family stunned for a couple seconds before they all started laughing at the outburst.

“See! I told you my little girl was a genius,” Rick said, breaking their laughs.

“Ice cream?”

Kate scrubbed her hand down her face. Good thing she was cute.

“She just really likes ice cream,” Liam added, before reaching for her hand, both trying to comfort her while also defending his sister.

And really, that wasn’t such a bad thing.

Harry Styles: VIDEO Masterpost

Three videos in which Harry Styles managed to make my life  living hell…

First video: Harry changes the lyrics from ¨Loved You First¨ during the concert.

Important Moments / Moments that make me wanna die:

1) 0:05 Harry sings smiling, making me wanna scratch my eyes out.

2) 0:09 He holds his thumb up to a girl (who I am not jealous of) while he is singing.

3) 0:12 - 0:17 He keeps singing looking at that girl in the crowd (thank you Harry)

4) 0:19 THE MOMENT WERE I WANT TO KILL MYSELF: He changes the lyrics to ¨Baby I love your shirt¨ POINTING AT THE GIRL. I mean, who does that to an innocent young lady? Shame on you Styles.


6) 0:29 keeps looking…

7) 0:32 keeps looking… BUT he smirks at her *smashes face against table*

8) 0:50 he returns to the side of the stage where the girl is he sang to… And he can´t help it and smile like a little cutie. Fuck you. 

If you’re asking yourself if I am jealous of that girl, the answer is NO. OF COURSE NOT. HOW CAN I BE JEALOUS OF THE ONE GIRL THAT BROUGHT HARRY’S ATTENTION DURING THE PERFORMANCE? I am lying. I am done. Life is hard.

Second video: Harry dancing during ¨Last First Kiss¨

Important Momets / (Again) Moments that make me wanna die:

1) 0:02 Harry moves his hip like Mick Jagger. (damn that’s hot)

2) 0:04 - 0:05 Harry moves his chest like he rules the world of millions of girls over the world. (actually he does, that sexy bastard)

3) 0:13 He sings while looking at some girl in the crowd, smirking and while he snaps his fingers. (great, thanks a lot)

4) 0:35 - 0:45 He sings while making fun of a girl who is eating popcorn (or something like that)

5) 0:46 - 0:52 He stares at that girl AGAIN and makes AGAIN the same movement with his FUCKING HOT chest, and that’s the point where I am a crying disaster. I mean, he does it smiling, that little bitch. I hate him for doing this to me.

But seriously: This video means a lot to me because it shows what a little ass Harry Styles is. He teases everybody making sexual moves. He is an ass, but that’s why I love him.

Third video: ¨Let’s Get It On¨

It´s very simple: The whole video is EXTREMELY important to me.

To the person who made it: Thank you for the soundtrack you choose for the video. That song is perfect.

And a little (very important) tip: Try not to cry watching this perfection (like I did)… 

I LOST MY MIND. I am SICK. Don’t touch me. It’s the end of my existence.

Hailee Steinfeld Slays with Debut Single “Love Myself”

We knew Hailee Steinfeld could sing from her flawless solo “Flashlight” in Pitch Perfect 2, but did you know girl can seriously SANG? The 18-year-old artist just released her debut single “Love Myself”  on Republic Records and it’s amazing. You can’t help but want to get up and dance to the pop track!

“Love Myself” proves Hailee did not just come to play, girl came to win! I already can’t get the infectious empowerment song out of my head. Plus, it has a great message about self-love and not needing anyone’s approval. I love it!

I can’t wait to hear more music from Hailee! Love this song, too? Get it on iTunes here.

The Complex Guide to K-Pop

The K-pop experts from weigh in on who to watch.


Modern Korean pop idols are known for a lot of things—namely sex appeal, looks, marketability, and personality—but one quality that is often noticeably missing is the actual skill of harmonizing. It’s mind-boggling how little emphasis K-pop companies put on the ability to competently carry a tune. And that’s why Mamamoo is the shit.

Please look past the terrible name for one second. This girl group can sing. They can sang. Their harmonies are among the best in K-pop, and their music, best categorized as “jazzy soul,” is unique and refreshing.
