It is such an annoyingly hipster thing to invite people over to your house on the pretense of a cookout and then hold them hostage and make them listen to you play music. I mean, I’m not saying it’s awful or anything, but if I really wanted to hear you play I would go to one of your shows, instead of being crammed into your office while you musically masturbate in front of 10...

Apparently some Americans are going to do their own version of Bron/Broen, just like they did with The Killing/Forbrydelsen. Good luck with that. I hate you.
SUPER LONG DAY It was my last day of TAing for the semester. I handled a complaining student well. I read the rest of Murasaki’s Diary. I scheduled my prospectus defense. Refilled my bc scrip (for free - thanks Obama!) Skyped with a committee member, and had drinks and complained with the only two other ancient history people I like. And then I came home to find my credit card number has...

shadowrawrs: strawberrydaydreams: do you ever hate someone so much but you don’t even have a valid reason you’re just like no And then they give you a reason and its like Ohhhhh yes.

afieldoflilacs: Here it is! I put together a complete playlist of every song in the first series of My Mad Fat Diary, and I thought I’d share it with everyone. Beyond the Read More is a list of every song included + download links. Note: A lot of songs appear in multiple episodes (e.g. Champagne Supernova, Wild Wood, etc.), so I have only included them in the first episode they appear in. ...
How to talk about white people →
Racists, let me recommend this article to you. It has everything you like! “White privilege doesn’t exist. We should really talk about class instead. Please be nice to the poor white people and don’t treat them the way we treated you when we were the majority!” Salon, get your fucking act together. This is disgusting.

so-treu: There’s a comforting-to-white-people fiction about racism and racial inequality in the United States today: They’re caused by a small, recalcitrant group who cling to their egregiously inaccurate beliefs in the moral, intellectual and economic superiority of white people. The reality: racism and racial inequality aren’t just supported by old ideas, unfounded group esteem or...
