YouTube these: Lamb - Gabriel, Portishead - Glory Box, All Ends - Pretty Words (their cover of Apologize is nice too) I've also got a sweet spot for Serena Ryder, LIGHTS, Diemonds, Five Finger Death Punch and Halestorm (Halestorm's Familiar Taste of Poison and Dirty Work are my favorites.)
I have a very serious question: Will you be my friend? Honestly, this is one of the best tumblogs I've seen in a very long time. From your description to your inspirations, I can really relate to your offerings. So? Will you?
Well, thank you, I’m flattered. I don’t really feel like I know you, and you have a pretty small number of posts up, but I like your style thus far ;) I am pretty open to talking to people. If you really want to be friends just continue to hit me up (questions, statements, conversation openers, whatever works for you).
do you mean... you assume people's bones literally change when they gain weight, or that all fat people have larger frames? I don't think that picture is real either, though.
I assumed peoples’ frames would expand as they gained weight. I never really thought about it in depth, I just know that, for instance, my hips are way wider than they used to be but you still don’t have to push in much at all before you hit bone. *shrug*
Hey! I saw that on my giveaway form, you mentioned your polish was getting thick. You can buy special polish thinner at beauty supply stores like Sally - it'll save any old, thick polish as long as it's not totally solid! Good luck in my giveaway!
Hmm, this reminds me I think I once heard you can add a little nail polish remover to the bottle??
Sadly, the vigilante Granny story isn't true. I actually loved the story and went looking for a non-Tumblr article on it, and instead found a Snopes one. :( I tried to include the link but this box wouldn't allow me to. :(
“Has anybody been watching the debates lately? You’ve got a governor whose state is on fire denying climate change. It’s true. You’ve got audiences cheering at the prospect of somebody dying because they don’t have healthcare and booing a service member in Iraq because they’re gay. That’s not reflective of who we are.”—
“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge — myth is more potent than history — dreams are more powerful than facts — hope always triumphs over experience — laughter is the cure for grief — love is stronger than death.”—Robert Fulghum (It’s like air)
I need new music to listen to. A lot. I don’t know how to describe my musical taste in simple terms anymore: here is an overview for your guidance and wisdom in suggestions…
My classic favorites have traditionally been Tori Amos and Radiohead, but I haven’t liked new Tori in several albums and I can’t stand Radiohead lately. I know the old stuff will cycle back around; for now it can bite me.
I also tend to cycle back around to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Bach’s Cello Suites, Brahms’ violin concertos and Beethoven’s sonatas.
And I have major ongoing places in my heart for Ani Difranco, Johnny Cash, the Indigo Girls and Crooked Still.
Other than that, enduring “favorites” would include Neutral Milk Hotel’s “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea”, Sparklehorse’s “Gold Day”, Snoop Dogg’s “Sensual Seduction”, classic rock in it’s entirety, Marilyn Manson’s hits, 10% of Nine Inch Nails, Linkin Park when I’m feeling PTSD-y, about 5 Evanescence songs, the Interview with a Vampire soundtrack, and a lot of stuff that sounds like it’s off of 80s music soundtracks (like Don’t Dream It’s Over).
Last year I listened to almost nothing but Thrice, Fiona Apple and Regina Spektor; this year I’ve listened to almost nothing but Florence and the Machine and Mt Eden Dubstep.
My hard limits are gangsta rap that doesn’t involve Andy Samberg and pop country.
I do not like Muse, or Belle and Sebastion, or many similar artists.
I can turn on a Feist pandora station and be ok, though.
