“Kelly and I discussed vampires who write in diaries”
UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH OH MY GODD THIS FOREVER THISSSSSS
YES THIS TIMES FIVE FUCKING BILLION. Also, I had a great conversation this summer regarding the fact that this show is really well plotted but nobody gives it ANY credit because it’s marketed toward teenage girls. IT IS SO GOOD.

Instead of preparing for the reading I’m giving tonight, my brother and I are outlining the details of our future career as jaeger pilots. We love Pacific Rim a lot. We agreed to be stationed at the Melbourne shatterdome with the Hansens and that also there will be a daughter-mother-grandmother team from India in a multi-armed jaeger named Mongoose Blue. Also a pair of Texans who we don’t like. Their jaeger is named Duke Lonestar. Our jaeger is Gunpowder Riptide; it is green and gold and the logo is a dog with a kaiju leg in his mouth, and somehow we have a giant longbow on our backs (we haven’t exactly figured out the mechanics of that, bear with us). I mean damn, Guillermo del Toro, if you basically have me writing fanfiction, you’re a worldbuilding genius.
I just want boys to give me their sweaters so i can smell like them and they can freeze and die in the harsh, unforgiving winter and womenkind can emerge in the spring victorious <3
Idea for blog post in which I live blog watching the three versions of Persuasion available at the public library, and do so in my pajamas, alone, and cry 3x at the big speech when Anne tells Captain Harville that books don’t understand ladies.
CH: “I do not think I ever opened a book in my life which had not something to say upon woman’s inconstancy. Songs and proverbs, all talk of woman’s fickleness. But perhaps you will say, these were all written by men.”
A: “Perhaps I shall. Yes, yes, if you please, no reference to examples in books. Men have had every advantage of us in telling their own story. Education has been theirs in so much higher a degree; the pen has been in their hands. I will not allow books to prove anything.”
Greyhound Permutations (series of six) pen, acrylic ink, and watercolor on vellum 8”x11.”
This a series of greyhound drawings I did during my college days. I went to a very conceptual art school, and we were often given broad subjects, or one-word themes to stimulate bodies of work. If I remember correctly, the subject of this particular project was “permutation.” I was really into anatomy at the time, and decided I would do different combinations of skin, bone, and muscle (S,B,M) in terms of what would be drawn first, which resulted in six works, SMB, SBM, MSB, MBS, BSM, and BMS.
Is sweet. It is sweet. The heart dies of this sweetness.
hot take: this poem’s pretty good.
I read this poem at very particular moments and it just destroys me. Oh god, it’s perfect. It really is.
