Dépaysement D'une Jeune Demoiselle

Read the Printed Word!
A lover of pretty, old fashioned things and actually just as occasionally annoying, lovely, charming, stupid, awkward, smart and funny as everyone else.

There are no Jack Kerouacs or Holden Caulfields for girls. Literary girls don’t take road-trips to find themselves; they take trips to find men.

"Great" books, as defined by the Western canon, didn’t contain female protagonists I could admire. In fact, they barely contained female protagonists at all.

Many of the extras in the film are actually technicians and stagehands.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1974)

And Stirling students. Cannae forget them.

“When beholding a majestic 13,000-year-old Eucalyptus tree, how can human arrogance dare deny its reality under the blindness of dogma?”

—   At a time when 40% of the American public don’t believe Earth is more than 6,000 years old, Rachel Sussman’s magnificent photographs of the oldest living things in the world stand not only as a masterpiece of art but also a masterpiece of science communication.  (via explore-blog)

Blouse Collars, 1940s-50s - By Charlotte Dymock.

there was a lot of bullshit in the forties and fifties but the style was not part of it

(via innaudiblemelodiess)

You want blood? Come here and take it. It’s fresh, still warm from the life that just left it; the blood of my brother. So take it, take his blood and call it enough. If you need more, take mine. Do it! I surrender! Shoot me and call that enough. Or can one of you come down here and show me your face? Show me that you’re more than tank, metal and shell; that you’re human like we are, that you bleed, that you breathe, that you feel and feel pity, that you live for more than our deaths. Come, any of you who have lost a brother, come and tell me it’s enough.

Peggy Carter being so done with inaccurate WWII films (Pearl Harbor, 2001)

  1. Several of the nurses in the film have hair longer than would have been allowed. Military women weren’t permitted to wear their hair longer than just above their collar.
  2. The Willys Jeep M38 shown in this scene wasn’t produced until 1950.
  3. The Eagle Squadron badge shown on his right arm in this scene was only used for the No. 303 Polish Fighting Squadron, never was it used for any squadron in England for which this soldier was fighting in. 
  4. This woman is wearing a modern style bikini, something that didn’t appear until 1946 when Louis Reard and Jacques Heim introduced it in Paris. 
  5. Danny exclaims “I think World War II just hit us!” when in fact it wasn’t called “World War II” until 1948. World War I was still being referred to as “The Great War” at the time. 
  6. The Japanese Zeros depicted here are painted dark green, but during 1941 they were painted light grey. They weren’t painted green until 1943. 

Notes:
-Original Prompt: Historically Innacurate World War II Movies
-The Attack on Pearl Harbor occurred on December 7, 1941
-Happy CarterCentury week!

Can we talk about how Hairspray is a story where a not-conventionally-attractive girl gets the hot guy in the end without having to Become “Pretty.” Because we need more stories like that.

And the Waltz Goes On - Anthony Hopkins 

Sir Anthony Hopkins Hears The Waltz He Wrote 50 Years Ago For The First Time

Academy Award-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins was a musician before he got into acting. 50 years ago he wrote a waltz but was too afraid to ever hear it play. Dutch violinist André Rieu performs it for the very first time. Watch Hopkins’ reaction.

That was beautiful

I cried a few tears and felt better about humanity’s endeavors.

These are a pair of onesies. For infants. One reads “i’m just a cupcake looking for my stud muffin” and the other reads “girls dig chubby guys”. Heteros really need to stop trying to force their lifestyle on children.

People are really creepy about pushing heterosexuality on babies in general. Like “oh, he loves to smile at girls, he’s such a flirt” and “What a pretty little girl; your daddy is going to have to beat the boys away with a stick”
Like can you not even wait for your infants to gain control of their neck muscles before you start pushing your sexual preferences on them?

oh my gosh this this this this this
so much
it makes me so uncomfortable

Never mind which sexuality they advocate (although I do agree with the above) - They. Are. Sexualising. Infants!
How fucking creepy is that in the first place?
