As formulaic as the episodes of House are, I can't help it. I'm starting to really enjoy the show.
Ever since I’ve started watching reruns on Bravo, I’ve found myself pretty hooked. I don’t find the diagnosis part that interesting really because it tends to be the same every episode, but the writing is hilarious and I love House as a character.
I’m surprised more people don’t listen to Tricky considering he is — in my view anyone — one of the best trip-hop artists you can find on the market. As the title of the album suggests, Vulnerable is Tricky’s most open creation. Many of the songs the record contains show a softer side to the rapper than can be seen in his prior works. It’s poignancy can often catch even the most seasoned Tricky listener off-guard.
"Hollow" has some of Tricky’s usual sexiness but it packs an emotional punch that makes it stand out among his other erotically charged songs. Costanza Francavilla’s ethereal voice is the perfect contrast to Tricky’s deep, smokey whispers. There is this sense of both intense need and animosity that only furthers this tender, but still highly sensual atmosphere. The song is brought to a quiet climax with the addition of operatic vocals in the background that manage to bring out the main two voices in the song rather than mask them. Definitely one of the best tracks Tricky has to offer to date.
Doesn’t matter about the time we take. Doesn’t matter about the lies we make. Go slow.
I think of how you’re making me mad. I think of all the love we had. Feel so…
Always question never quenching your thirst. Let me die when I lie to you first. I follow.
When I’m with you it’s from within. I know you can see through my skin. I’m hollow.
I need you to feed me once more. I need you like I needed before. I’ll grow.
This article from Psychology Today discusses the common traits seen in people that psychopaths target for manipulation and how they got these results. Psychopaths are keen people readers and it’s quite amazing what they can pick up about someone from their body language.
Some found this article a bit controversial — claiming that it blamed the victims for psychopaths’ behaviors. Personally, I see no fingers being pointed here, just some facts being laid out.
“Another year is fast approaching. Go be that starving artist you’re afraid to be. Open up that journal and get poetic finally. Volunteer. Suck it up and travel. You were not born here to work and pay taxes. You were put here to be part of a vast organism to explore and create. Stop putting it off. The world has much more to offer than what’s on 15 televisions at TGI Fridays. Take pictures. Scare people. Shake up the scene. Be the change you want to see in the world.”—Jason Mraz
This is an interesting article from Psychology Today discussing how the people who have consistently claimed that Obama was not born in the U.S. are not going to change their opinions because of the birth certificate. They cite many beliefs that — though completely wrong — make some Americans feel like Obama is not one of them. It’s pretty interesting.
In all honestly though, the main reason why I posted this article is because I’m pleased that I said the same thing to my friends and family when the birth certificate was released a few days ago. The hardcore “birthers” have never needed evidence to confirm or refute their beliefs. They believe what they want to believe.
I am writing about the character of Jack McFarland from Will & Grace, discussing how overtly feminine he is and how making that the butt of so many jokes could be detrimental to the GLBT cause. It's fascinating, but honestly, I've grown to loathe this paper.
That’s actually an incredibly cool subject relative to a lot of other things people write papers about. But I understand how something can get annoying very quickly though when you’re doing it for school. What were you having trouble with specifically? Just the translation from concept to paper?
A simplified form of speech that is usually a mixture of two or more languages, has a rudimentary grammar and vocabulary, is used for communication between groups speaking different languages, and is not spoken as a first or native language.
You know that feeling you get when you know exactly how you want your paper to go? You have it all organized and planned out and the relevant quotes all lined up? AND IT WON'T FREAKING TRANSLATE INTO WRITTEN WORD? Because I'm experiencing this right now.
I know exactly what you’re speaking of and it’s absolutely torturous. At least when you have no ideas at all, you are still at a starting point. When you’ve already planned everything out it’s like the plans are just sitting there taunting you. I am having this problem with an essay I’m writing on Pre-Raphaelite art in relation to Victorian ideas towards women. It’s all outlined, but when I go to write it, the magic just isn’t happening.
OMG I have followed your tumblr for a day and I am in-love. I'm also going to Ithaca College by the way!
Yay! I’m so happy my tumblr can bring joy to people :) I just checked out your blog as well and followed back — and I’m not one of those people that follows everyone back. Your tumblr looks great. I’m excited to see it in action :P
And no way! That’s so exciting! :D What are you going for?
