Well doesn't Davey Havok look different?!
Last time I saw AFI he looked like this: When I just saw them on Reading highlights he looked like this: I guess I must have changed a lot over those years too.

So they unearthed this old Elliott Smith song. I’ve listened to it a lot over the last day, and rather predictably, I rather like it. And like most Elliott Smith songs it resonates. I couldn’t find a good mp3 so you’ll just have to put up with this link for now. When it comes calling Drawing you in Don’t forget how much I love you There’s no one to see what...
Shakira's hips have mad skillz
And I’d like them.
On this day in 1908:
Lyndon ‘Hey, hey, LBJ, how many kids did you kill today?’ Johnson was born. He took presidency after JFK (it was the time of initials it appears), was assainated. People wonder what might have been different had Kennedy not been killed. Maybe people idealise Kennedy too much, maybe they don’t. I guess we’ll never know.

Literary classics can be crude you know. →
wearie: This is the tale I am studying for at the moment. I lolled quite hard when I came to the bit about Absolon’s kiss. I played Alisoun in that once.
“I was born in 1968, born to replace Bobby Kennedy” Who was born in 2009 to replace Ted?

Something pretty important with telescopes happened.
I went to Berlin and my friend wrote about it. →
Maybe I’lll write about it myself another time. My tumblarity is as low as I am right now.
On this day in 2009:
I visit Germany for the first time in my life. HIYA BERLIN!!
On this day in 2009:
Liz and JB get married. It’s totally amazing, even as someone that doesn’t necessarily believe in marriage. They’re totally into each other and we could all see that right from the start, and I guess it all gives us some hope that we might meet someone that makes us feel as utterly content as Liz and JB do for each other. Here’s to a lifetime of working it out, making...
On this day in 1961:
The Berlin wall was erected in the dead of night, closing the borders between East and West Berlin. Telephone wires between East and West Berlin were also cut. “No longer could East Berliners cross the border for operas, plays, soccer games, etc. No longer could the approximately 60,000 commuters head to West Berlin for well-paying jobs. No longer could families, friends, and lovers cross...

Herman Gray writing about blackness. Ariel Dorfman writing about Disneyland.
There's this thing flying around Facebook.

madwhit: psychotherapy: The researchers aren’t sure exactly how imaginary companions and narrative skills are linked, but one possibility is that children with an unseen companion get practice at telling stories whenever they are asked by parents or others about their invisible friend. Of course another possibility, which the design of the current study can’t rule out, is that having better...
Dinosaur Jr. - Said The People. Can you tell me,...
On this day in 1895:
Australian cricketer Hammy Love was born. Now, I don’t know a whole lot about this man, in fact the only things I know about him are on his wikipedia page, but his name is Hammy Love, so I think that makes him more than worthy of a mention.
The ESRC bloody well rejected me again.
Dear Victoria, Further to your application for funding from the ESRC open competition, I regret to inform you that on this occasion, your application has been unsuccessful. Given that you were awarded funding from the University, this decision will hopefully not preclude you from commencing your studies with us in September. If however, you have any further queries and will not be able to...
On this day in 1969:
Members of Charles Manson’s ‘Family’ killed Steven Parent, Wojciech Frykowski, Abigail Folger, Sharon Tate and Jay Sebring. I started reading into it so I could maybe say something reflective about it, but it’s pretty fucked up and I’ll probably have nightmares now.
My friend makes things that you can buy. →
And I happen to think she’s really good at it. Go look at her stuff!

I mean it does look a lot like many of the new arty public buildings that are going up these days, but given its location, credit where credit’s due. This is a lovely piece of architecture.

Nobody loves you when you're 23.
It freaks me out that I am the age of the lyrics in that Blink song, I remember listening to it when I was doing my paperround thinking that 23 was a lifetime away. Bloody hell.
