Read poetry every day of your life. Poetry is good because it flexes muscles you don’t use often enough. Poetry expands the senses and keeps them in prime condition. It keeps you aware of your nose, your eye, your ear, your tongue, your hand. And, above all, poetry is compacted metaphor or simile. Such metaphors, like Japanese paper flowers, may expand outward into gigantic shapes. Ideas lie everywhere through the poetry books, yet how rarely have I heard short story teachers recommending them for browsing.
What poetry? Any poetry that makes your hair stand up along your arms. Don’t force yourself too hard. Take it easy. Over the years you may catch up to, move even with, and pass T. S. Eliot on your way to other pastures. You say you don’t understand Dylan Thomas? Yes, but your ganglion does, and your secret wits, and all your unborn children. Read him, as you can read a horse with your eyes, set free and charging over an endless green meadow on a windy day." - Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing (via paradoxicalsentiments)
“I remember when I played the character in Doubt. It was a character that not a lot of black people embraced. Because they didn’t like her. I think a lot of women face that, in general. A lot more than men. Black women really face it. We are always overly-sanctified in movies. Overly-nurturing, overly-sympathetic. And to find that place where you’re “messy” is very difficult. It’s even difficult to negotiate it with a director on set. When you’re coming from a place of being a trained actor and you understand human behavior, and you understand that it’s your job to create a human being, that when people sit in the audience they just need to connect the dots. They need to be able to say this is a person that’s driven by needs and this is what drives them. And it’s hard to create that human being because there’s so many facets of your personality they want to stifle because of this [gestures to the skin of her arm].”
— Viola Davis [watch]
Only on the internet could you find a shark in a cat suit riding a roomba.
okay guys. all i can do is write. how do i get paid and get health care.
we neeeeeeeeeeed more media about queer people who aren’t miserable and victimized and end up brokenhearted or dead i hate that the only mainstream stories with queer protagonists are tragic and depressing, it is unnacceptable to me that this is the most readily available queer narrative for 15 year old kid who’s afraid to come out to their parents
map of British accents!!
How can a country smaller than montana have so many fucking accents?
this is why we say please do not talk about a “british accent” thank
THIS IS FANTASTIC
hahahaaaa as a limey who took English Language at A level I can happily inform you that I am delighted and that this is simplified
One thing I love about reading books by linguists about English is how fucking gleeful geeky they get about Britain and accents and what it shows us about the development of the language.
Makes me want to pinch their little linguist cheeks.
Man, Ireland is hella simplified in this.

Labor which requires skills that are devalued does.
