today was my last day in my creative writing class and my teacher gave everybody a piece of paper to write down a contract and to put it in our wallets. she said she did the same thing when she was younger and every now and then she’d brush by it and remember that she wanted to write. everybody took time to write out what they wanted and I just sat at the back of the class, sitting on the windowsill and I knew there was only one thing to write but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. at the end of the class after everybody left, I went to thank her for the year, and she told me that people should be reading my words for a long time, but they won’t be able to do that if I’m not around to write them. I showed her the blank piece of paper, and she said it was okay not to write anything, and then I wrote this. I learned the power of words in that class, I learned it was okay to vomit up half a dozen notebooks stained with blood and exploded pens because it means you have something to say.

 the Hollywood Tower Hotel appears frozen in time, everything in it draped in decades’ worth of dust and decay. There is a yellowed copy of the Los Angeles Examiner dated October 31, 1939, a table set with tea and stale pastries, several suitcases abandoned near the front desk, a long-extinguished fireplace, an unfinished game of Mahjong at a table accompanied by a few rancid cocktails, a concierge desk with a hat and cane left behind, and a cobwebbed owl sculpture surrounded by a circle of dead flowers acting as the centerpiece of the lobby. In the California and Paris versions, the game of Mahjong was replaced with an unfinished game of cards.

Has anyone else spent the time to count the arms, candles, and crystals on the chandelier found in the first room of the Haunted Mansion? On it, there are six arms, which each hold six candles, and hanging from each candle, there are six crystals. Of course, this all adds up to 6-6-6. Try it next time if you haven’t noticed this before

Calling all seamstresses!

shipwreckdsiren:

If you happen to be out and about shopping for fabric in the near future, would you mosey on over to the expensive velvet section for me and take a peek?

The company from India I bought my perfect (as in, perfect and I can’t find anywhere else), who sent me wrong fabric because they’re out of stock without telling me, has made me open a PayPal dispute, and long story short - I’m never getting the real fabric because it’s not there anymore.  (Would have been nice to tell me before I spent $72 and it will be $30 to ship it back.  I’m requesting they cover it all or just give me $72 and not make me ship it.  I’m so upset.  I even ordered a swatch beforehand.)

Anyhow, I wanted this for two events at the end of October (one being a cosplay contest) and I probably won’t get to do that now, but I still want an accurate replica for future stuff.  Let me know if you find anything, if it’s available online, if I can get a swatch, if I can send you money to get it for me if it’s an in-person thing only, etc.

My swatch I can’t get: It’s a crushed velvet in a very deep red.  But it’s not just crushed, it’s vertically - like tree bark, almost.  Notice the depth…

I’m looking for 4yd. of at least 45” wide.  I’m willing to spend a good amount for accuracy (if I can get my refund from the other company, that is).

Signal boosting since I know a lot of cosplayers follow me!

Do you ever meet girls in real life and think “yes you are the kind of strong female the media needs” because I do. Almost every day. Almost as if “strong females” in media should be, like, akin to real women. Not idealised caricatures of ‘bad-assery’ and under developed, over used story lines. Huh. Hmm. Interesting.

Apparently some vegans are telling people not to eat honey to support bees.STOP.

Bees then have a big huge giant person who can deal with any threats to the hive. Yes, honey is a winter food supply for bees, but beekeepers (unless they’re dicks, in which case they’d be shooting themselves in the foot) will NEVER take too much honey from a hive, and will always ensure that bees have enough food.

Aliza Razell: Magic and Mystic Photography

Flickrock, Facebook

Massachusetts-based artist Aliza Razell creates tickling self-portraits that explore philosophical abstractions through the merged mediums of watercolour and photography. Using Photoshop, Razell unites the two mediums in her Anesidora (explorations of the Pandora’s Box myth) and Ikävä (the Finnish word meaning the feeling of longing) series.
