Just a book-butcher, baker, Southern, Celtic, Goth mystic, looking for some shadows and some light.

    I feel so strongly about mermaids.

    I want so many stories about mermaids. And none of that tragic love story with a man who breaks their heart stuff.

    Deep sea mermaids with glowing freckles and tentacles and architecture that looks like Tron.

    Sirens that destroy souls with theirs songs just to…

    Preach!

    I’ve always preferred the creepy stories of sailor-drowning mermaids over helpful ones.

  • ""Anaconda" shifts the common narrative of a man conquering female bodies to Minaj’s own stories of sexcapades without apologies. Towards the end, the only man in the video appears: Drake, seated in the middle of an empty room with roaming spotlights and Minaj treating him to a lap dance. In the final seconds, he reaches to touch Minaj’s ass after she had been flaunting it in his face, and she immediately swats his hand and struts away. Her body belongs to her, and she can twerk it and work it however she pleases, and she doesn’t owe anything to anyone."

    Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked

    Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.

    Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!

    I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.

    2. Rhododendron Laden Path, Mount Rogers, Virginia, USA
    3. Spring In Hallerbos Forest, Belgium
    4. Autumn Path In Kyoto, Japan 
    5. Autumn Path
    6. Bamboo Path In Kyoto, Japan

    So apparently feminism is a hate movement. I’m sorry I don’t remember any feminists going on any shooting sprees because they were rejected by men or sending death and rape threats to blogger who pointed out sexism in video games.

    This is so accurate. At school, we literally have children who will watch our facial expressions to see if them falling is as bad as they think it might be.

    CORRECT CHILD INJURY PROCEDURE:

    • do not react. at the most, maybe wince and go “ooooh”
    • go over to the child to assess panic level and severity of injury
    • if they’re like, dying, remain calm, but they’re probably not.
    • look them in the eye and ask, “you okay?” they will nod. possibly all teary-eyed. then ask, “are we gonna need to cut it off?”
    • the child is thrown off. if they giggle, you’re in the money. if they do not, put a bandaid on and do some sympathetic patting. they are probably a little teary. let the sad little bug sit out for a minute. they will quickly get bored.
    • works every time

    "sad little bug" is the cutest and most accurate term ive heard used to describe a child because sometimes bugs are kinda super cute sometimes bugs are really fucking annoying and sometimes bugs are downright TERRIFYING
