Oh my god, I've lost my mind. So this started out on tumblr, but then I thought, why deny livejournal the fruits of my insanity? So here you go; casting the Hogwarts founders, with snippets of dialogue thrown in.

The Hogwarts Founders
bold Gryffindor, from wild moor,
fair Ravenclaw, from glen,
sweet Hufflepuff, from valley broad,
shrewd Slytherin, from fen.

Lucy Lawless laughs in the face of time.  
Okay, I'm gonna stand over here and have mini brain-spasm over Spartacus: Blood and Sand. Yeah. You heard me. This show is the shit.

In which I get ridiculously meta about blood and guts. Vague spoilers up to 1.07...Er, mildly NSFW? )

Lucifer Rising  

In anticipation of tonight, I threw together some words and pictures of the finale. All speculation; no spoilers please!

Lucifer Rising
A meta picspam.

Sometimes I feel - in a very ... literal sense - that I have been wandering the desert for years, looking for our father. Well, not our father. My father. )

The Secret History  
So I just finished The Secret History, by Donna Tartt (yes, I'm ridiculously late to the party, stop laughing), and my mind is satisfactorily blown. Rather than attempt to impart my impressions through words, at which I would no doubt fail miserably, I instead choose to use pictures, quotations and music.


Spoilers for the book beneath the cut.

Dionysis [is] the Master of Illusions, who could make a vine grow out of a ship's plank, and in general enable his votaries to see the world as the world's not. )

Punditry and Pictures make Peacemaking not Warmongering  

@ [ profile] third_monday

And now, because that really got me into the swing of things, a Fake News picspam! Featuring most prominently, our favourite fake news pundits in their underwear. Yep. That's right.

Actually, it's a rag-tag bunch of misfits: We got Colbert, Clooney, Cooper, Carla Bruni, Banksy, Brando, Bellucci, Stewart, Downey Jr, Emanuels, Newman and more. )

Because these are a few of my favourite things people.

We are to fandom what Rahm Emanuel is to the Democratic Party  
...That is to say terrifying.

On that note:


On why there is no spoon, only Rahm.


You're such a literate, erudite guy, it makes me wonder why you're hanging around Rahm Emanuel. There are only so many ways to say: I wanna rip your head off. - Barack Obama, 2005 )

the best things in life are free. (like image hosting sites)  
1. Stop talking about politics for a moment or two.
2. Post a reasonably-sized picture in your LJ, NOT under a cut tag, of something pleasant, such as an adorable kitten, or a fluffy white cloud, or a bottle of booze. Something that has NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS.
3. Include these instructions, and share the love.

...So naturally, I went with option d) Clooney.
