Illustrated poetry: ‘Oh rascal children of Gaza’

Rafah-born author and poet Khaled Juma wrote a heartbreaking tribute to the children of the Gaza Strip amidst the missiles striking his hometown. At least 506 Palestinian children have been killed since Israel commenced its latest invasion of Gaza on July 8, 2014

Me right after trying Maker's Mark bourbon: That was really nice and warm, it was like I just went to a nice campfire in my heart

A really fascinating aspect of Macbeth is that it takes place in the time when Christianity was first entering the (then pagan) British Isles, so you’ve got Macbeth who’s converted to Christianity and Lady Macbeth who is low-key conjuring demons to come and fuck things up…

but my confusion lies here:  the three witches (that are not-so-low-key intent on fucking things up) are servants of Hecate.  Shakespeare liked to employ Greek mythology in his writing pretty often which is cool, but wouldn’t Scottish witches in the 11th century have had some Anglo-Saxon-Germanic-Scotch-whatever gods going on??  I know the play wasn’t written to be historically accurate but i’m just idk bye

I’m a horrible drama major… I get cast in a Shakespeare show and get told by the director to read it a few more times before the rehearsals start and I’m just like, can I have it read to me..?  by actors?  in a movie?



The first thing I did when I woke up was listen to Anaconda

I woke up this morning with it stuck in my head.  So then I went into the kitchen and told my roommate (her dad was also there.)  She didn’t know the song so she pulled it up on Spotify and the rest is history.
