Sorry I haven’t been posting anything but reblogs lately
Or, not sorry, because the reblogs are a lot more interesting than anything that’s going on my actual life, which is just work, working out, and writing right now—and that’s not a bad thing; it’s exactly what I should/need to/want to be doing, but it’s not exactly riveting stuff. But anyway, I’m fine, things are good, etc. My daily internet routine has been largely overtaken by modding over at Homeless Monsters, so I haven’t been on Tumblr as much.
HOWEVER, I’m going to see Nicky in October, and we’re going to have a Marvel movie marathon, and we’re going to watch Captain Boyfriend 2: The Winter Boyfriend together and it’s going to be SO GREAT.
Police escalate the violence. Unrest in Ferguson, Part 2
It’s continuing. These are from early this morning.This is fucked up.
This has been going on for a week and half now. Seriously, is no one in charge of this fucking country right now?
America needs a responsible adult.
There are videos of an officer threatening to kill a journalist and one of another threatening an Al Jazeera America team and saying he’ll confiscate their film. Let’s spread those around before they get taken down.

THERE IS A WHOLE CATEGORY OF HOGWARTS ATMOSPHERES ON AMBIENT-MIXER. SO IF YOU HAVE WIFI AND WANT TO FEEL LIKE YOU’RE AT THE CASTLE, CLICK HERE.
Whoa, I’d never heard of Ambient-Mixer, and it’s awesome. I find ambient noise much better for writing than music, which distracts me, and there are a ton of mixes to choose from (or you can make your own).
"We women are but the property of gentlemen". It came into my head that I have been blessed with freedom twice over. As a negro and as a woman. Or have I? Must not a lady marry even if she is financially secure? Or who is she without a husband of consequence? It seems silly…

I finally watched this after having been dying to see it for ages, and it did not disappoint. Besides being an important story about an interesting person, it was deliciously dramatic and romantic without being over-the-top. There were LONGING GAZES and CLANDESTINE MEETINGS IN THE GARDEN and PASSIONATE DECLARATIONS IN CARRIAGES. Highly recommended to all my fellow period piece fans.
